The man shot by police on Thursday in wainuiomata on Thursday, Tane Wipa, is believed to have been deported to New Zealand in 2012 due to a history of violent offending, Stuff understands.
His 2018 Appeal court decision states he has at least 15 offences since he was deported here in 2012. Three of them for violence. As usual, he did his second strike while on parole.
Recidivists like Wipa should not be given parole. It should be a rare privilege, not a right.
i look forward to the law being reinstated.
