Labour to scrap three strikes law

NewstalkZB reports:

The three strikes law is itself to be struck out.

Justice Minister Andrew Little said it has had no impact on making the country any safer.

That’s absolutely not true. Justice stats show that fewer people who get a first strike are committing second strikes, compared to before the three strikes law.

Little plans to start the three strikes repeal by the middle of next year.

I predict huge opposition to this.  If NZ First vote to repeal this, they’ll suffer for it.
