Turangi child rapist gang connected

The Turangi rapist is due for sentencing shortly, but it has been revealed that he has gang connections:

The teenager who raped a five-year-old girl in a Turangi holiday park has gang connections.

The Sunday Star-Times has been told the 16-year-old, who has pleaded guilty to the attack, was motivated by the possibility of securing entry into a gang.

Because of the suppression orders around the case, the gang cannot be named.

The Star-Times understands the teen’s father had been associated with the gang, but not since the attack, which shocked New Zealand in the lead-up to Christmas. The boy’s father cannot be named for legal reasons.

The claims were made by several sources close to the investigation.

“The family and the boy are connected to a gang,” one said. “The family is gang-associated. It’s not just the father.”

Another source said: “The family are well-recognised as being what they are … rotten apples. Where are you heading in society when you have this underbelly?”

No surprises there.

The Star-Times has been shown a photo that shows him posing, shirtless, with a gang nickname and an anti-police slogan clearly visible.

Public outrage has continued since his arrest.

They are talking about his photo from his Facebook page:

        yea sorry Scanner, made it sound like I directed it at you as though you supported the idea, but you’re completely right.

        Amazing that his mother got his friends out to say they were totally shocked that this could happen, and how he’s such a nice boy and it’s not like him to do it. What a load of shit. His picture tells otherwise, and the rest of those little cunts are probably gang prospects as well.

      • Frederico

        The ‘Family’ probably had a pissup the following night to celebrate his ‘coming of age’ and therefore membership to the gang…i bet the talk was of his future leadership potential..”he’ll be the pressy one day bro” (a proud father boasts)…. It did take some negotiating to get his family to surrender him..why??

      • Anonomous

        The Warrior thing is like the Kamate Haka. It is bred from savages before in battle, like the Gang entry motto. Pure unadulterated aggression. It should be banned anywhere. What overseas people “actually” think when they see and hear it one can only imagine the savage intent.

    • Thorn

      And the judge would love to fellate him.

      Yeah Jail is like gang university with howto classes in: breaking and entry, aggrevated robbery, grievous bodily harm, covering your tracks, and other useful life skills.

  • James

    I can’t understand why NZ hasn’t been able to dismantle these gangs.  No amount of rehabilitation will help this rotten apple.  Facebook leads the way,  every social media channel should be used to out this punk and remind everyone, including himself of who he is, what he has done, and what he will potentially do when out of prison in 5 years “rehabilitated”

    • It seems any crim can boast about their crimes using social media, but are still entitled to anonimity.  Something doesn’t add up here.

  • Magoo

    I wondering how they’d deal with such a scumbag in Singapore, and how much of this sort of thing goes on in Singapore. At the very least flog the bastard until there’s barely a scrap of flesh left on his back – that’ll make him think twice next time (if he survives).

  • Notrotsky

    The family and gang should be namer and shamed quickly followed by their headquarters being burned to the ground, gang members being tarred and feathered and run out of town.

    However, being NZ we will suppress information and do nothing, softcock, pinko country.

    • Anonymous

      the gang is easy enough to name, there’s only 1 in Turangi. They wouldn’t be able to be run out of town, half the town supports them, and the other half is scared of them.

    • Rockyr

      Instead we have Family Group Conferences to hand power back to the perps whanau and gang followed by name suppressions and secrecy.

  • Steve and Monique

    This is what you get when you let anyone breed. None of the family has a snowballs chance in a hot place of contributing anything to society but prison and benefit stats. Castrate the bastard. This highlights how out of hand the gang bullshit has become in this country. Someone tell me why Housing NZ lets family members with gang connections live in their much needed homes. Let people in real need abiding by the law have the homes and leave the gangs and their associates living in cardboxes. The kids should be removed from these sorts of environments to even stand a chance. Maybe WINZ should cancel the benefits (which they will undoubtedly be on) of the father and his family. I don’t think we should pay another red cent for any member of this family unless it equates to a 50 cent led injection (and I don’t even like the death penalty!)

    • Ben E. Basha

      Sensible policies for a happier NZ.

  • Well it scarcely comes as a surprise that he’s a gang member. I had seen this photo from facebook before (in its uncensored form too). I think that photo alone is evidence enough to warrant preventative detention for the rest of his vile existence.

  • Kosh103

    Gosh the news is just getting slower and slower these days printing information. I had heard with in less than 12 hours after the attack that this scumbag had gang conections, and it was suggested that the assult was actually part of a gang requirement.

    I say dont only punish this little fucker, I say go after the gang that required him to rape a 5 year old and hang all the scumsucking bastards.

    • Child Advocate

      But to be fair on the whanau Kosh103, the boy’s dad was until recently, reportedly part of the same gang.

      Are you suggesting the whole family should be made to suffer because of the actions of this one misguided lad?

      • Kosh103

        Those people who decided that raping a 5 year old girl is a good way for new gang members to “join thier club” are just as guilty. I am suggesting hang those fuckers as well. Becuase if this is how you get in the club, then high odds those club members have all assulted, raped, killed, etc… in order to be there.

        I have an extra level of wrath for those who harm children. When it comes to punishing those who harm kids, I make Attlia the Hun look like a tree hugging green tea drinking hippie.

      We are as one on this kosh.

      Without bringing politics into this but why can’t the parties right across the spectrum unite on cleaning out the gangs once and for all. The time has never been more right and with the advent of social media it would be so easy to get mass support. If the rape of a 5 year old does not silence the do-gooders who would have us believe that the gangs stand for work schemes and doing good works in their communities then nothing will.

      No wonder he pleaded guilty, the gang would not want this to go to an extended trial by jury and the associated publicity.

        You dont have to kill someone in order to have helped make it happen. Same line of though applies here.

    It was only 2 nights ago, I had stopped on the side of the road to phone my wife, when walking around the corner came a mongrel mob member dressed up in a red T shirt, black leather pants and a black leather vest….so what you say???…walking beside him was a wee chap of about 2-3 years old….dressed exactly the same.. My 1st thought was “you poor wee boy, you are lost already and your life is about to be a shit sandwich, because your dad holding your leather clad body is a halfwit!

  • Tristanb

    They’ve name suppressed the gang?!

    What about the other gangs who might be falsely accused? It could be Black Power, Mongrel Mob, Hell’s Angels, Head Hunters, The Tribesmen, or many others. What about their reputation?

    Oh, I see. They’re all scumbag pieces of shit, filled with illiterate violent losers, who are supported tacitly by Maori Party politicians and iwi, who do nothing but destroy the lives of their
    “families” and those who live nearby. They ruin small-town NZ, and make it a scary place.

    The guy’s pleaded guilty. Everyone in Turangi knows who he is. So why the continued name suppression?

    (BTW Stuff, TV3, and probably every news site on the internet is breaching name suppression at the moment. Every article from around Xmas seems to mention the name of the gang! What the hell was Jocelyn Munro thinking trying to suppress the gang’s name! Fuck she’s an idiot.)

    • Thorn

      Munro is following Sian Elias’s directives. Its more than idiocy, its vile, and there is nothing we can do to get rid of them. 

      • Quintin Hogg


        I have to correct you there.

        Dame Sian has little or nothing to do with the youth court. 

        The courts processes are manadated by the empowering legislation, “the children young persons and their families act 1989”. Judges with youth court warrants have basically fitted the processes they adopt around the framework of the act.

        The problem i suspect is that the youth court is one size fits all.  The offender from Turangi is at the outer end of the offending the court normally deals with so it’s processes are being found wanting by the public.

      • Thorn

        Quinton, Elias is senior to all judges and has over-riding jurisdiction in all the courts. She is directly accountable for the conduct of her officials and has the power to intervene at her discretion.

        The fact that she chooses not to intervene and fix that which is broken is just another reason to suggest her poor stewardship of our judicial system has actually aided and abetted the growth of violence and corruption in NZ. 

        She is by far the worst we have ever had, and she will not be missed by the good people who want bad people removed, and not released to create more victims.

  • Steve and Monique

    .When do we stop paying out for mongrels who use history as an excuse.When do we as a country stop pandering to a race who will not face up to their problems,and blame everyone else for them.Warrior culture my arse.There are cultures in this world that can lay claim to that one,and it is not here.Truth be known you lot were proberly kicked off every other island around,and ended up here by accident.One look at that photo,and I can tell you there are many more around the country like him.Every town/city has scumbag families being proped up by taxpayers/crime/gangs,and most are brown.When does this all stop.Not while we have a PC policy towards crime,gangs,welfare,and all this treaty trash.IT DOES NOT WORK.

    Maybe the way to do it is to build a prison on the Auckland Islands, Raoul Island or some remote spot and let the buggers run themselves and just have a patrol boat there to make sure no one escapes.  They could take their whanau with them and sterilise them before they go.

    What gets me is that the pinko wankers are writing Letters to the Editor (at least here in Wellington) with the usual story that Maori never abused kids before the Pakeha arrival (ignoring that tribal welfare was endemic, and that other tribes’ kids were killed or enslaved), and that it is due to white values of “spare the rod, spoil the child” corrupting the innocent Maori.  Think it’s time for Richard Prosser in NZFirst to use his obvious skills to say something about this.

  • Lilith

    Why should the gang get name suppression? I just don’t understand how things work anymore, and if you ask me it’s part of the reason these hideous crimes are so frequently occurring in our country. The law seems to be designed to protect rather than to correct, am I wrong?

  • Kosh103

    The whole name suppression thing really annoys me. He has pleaded guilty, he did it, we all know a gang were involved, so why the hell are our courts willing to protect this scum by hiding their ID?

    It sure as hell wont help the little girl who was assulted. It wont prevent this sort of scum doing it again. So WTF is the justification???

    National say they are tought on crime, so I call on them as the Govt of the day to do something about the name suppression laws in NZ.

    • Steve and Monique

      Hate to agree with you ,but I do.They do need to put a stop to all this bullshit.Needs to be more then just the name suppression laws.Do the crime,get lots of time.

        Youth offenders get automatic name suppression, once it was decided he was to be tried as an adult, surely name suppression should have been dropped.

      • EX Navy Greg

        Trav, he has been convicted in the youth court, it is not until he is sentenced at the district court that the name suppression can be lifted, which it will be.
        Personally, I think the level of the crime should be the decider, not the offenders age.

    • EX Navy Greg

      In full agreement here Kosh. Also about time NZ got a sentencing council. Basing sentences on previous “landmark” cases doesn’t cut the mustard with offending at this level.

    It would be very interesting if someone was able to access the stats of rape and violence to discover how many of them are as acts of gang initiation.  I think we would all be more than suprised at how high it would be.

    quinton is right, dame sian can’t just intervene and make up laws on the hoof. when this little turd
    reappears in court then name suppression can be lifted.as for outlawing gangs they will only come back as something else plus you’ll only play right into their hands by making them official outcasts. from what the police tell me the old gang members are just that,old. and the young ones are just young punks trying to give themelves an identity. best way to deal with them is to smile and laugh to yourself as you walk past like you’ve just remembered  something amusing. i’ve been told it’ll drives them nuts!!

    What a sorry arsed bunch of garbage, you all really have no idea of the situation and are about as ignorant as the dummass reporter who exclaims that the 16 yo piece of shit has “Gang connections“ big fuckn deal Dumbo what is new. The fact is that he is most likely, a barely literate juvenile  dragged up amidst a collection of itinerent, alcoholic, junkie drug-fucked losers, who have settled in a Town inhabited by decent people as well as the trash from every other town who are partners of or relatives to inmates of 2 major local jails. Word is that the local `Head Monkey“ told the “family involved“ to fuck off out of Turangi immediately the arrest was made, this was not done out of public concern it had more to do with disruption to horticultural activities and trade related issues. The piece of shit that garrotted, raped and almost killed the poor wee girl will deserve every thing that he has coming and believe me it will be far worse than the fuckwit rantings on this post. Turangi unfortunately will continue to be a small town of four factions, the retired, comfortable dwellers of the river area, the hardworking taxpaying trades/business people, the 6th and 7th generation Ngati Turangi, and like every society in NZ the useless, unproductive often criminal underclass. It is a fact that all five of these communities have through marriage, employment,religion and business “Gang connections.“ Such is life in a small NZ town.

    I don’t think we need to reference “sippenhaft” here–that was a horrific and unjust crime against humanity.

    On the other hand, the entire gang is culpable because, as another commenter said, committing this sort of crime is how you get into the gang, and everybody knows that. I’m sure the kid’s father (gang member) has been telling that since he was a young child. So: just like if I were to hire a hit man to commit a murder I could be prosecuted for murder or at least solicitation of murder, the gang should be prosecuted for solicitation of rape, child abuse, and grievous bodily harm. Why is that even a question?

    As for the ‘warrior gene’ thing, I’ve never heard of a warrior society that thought a five-year-old girl a worthy opponent. On the other hand, putting everyone who does this kind of crap in prison will breed that gene out in a couple generations because the males smart enough not to make excuses for their baser instincts will get all of the mates.
