They create and breed their own separation from decent society and it is cancerous unless removed zapped or isolated such that the disease cannot spread.
    I have seen potentially good men and families swallowed into poverty and crime simply because of influence from crim friends rellies and associates which the family would not or for some reason could not isolate from.
    you very close to hitting the answer...close but not quite there...... rather than the recently released being prohibited from associating with crims/gangs it needs flipped on its head...crims n gangs need to keep the hell away from everyone else....how you do that is the fly in ointment... lock them up some say..... make it hard for them to move around others say...drop them in bottom of a deep hole others say....
    being able to recieve dole in its many forms WITHOUT being drug tested is the first thing that needs addressed..... being on dole/DPB/sickness etc etc may not be quite so attractive of lifestyle if you have to pee in a jar and be clean or recieve a deminishing benifit untill clean again,say a 25% drop per failed test?????

    I mean't it both ways md. Usually I observed the person trying to make a new clean way was being pressured from crim elements in the community or whanau/extended family. It's very difficult to address and imo requires a very tough resilient independent body closely attached to parole boards and parole officers to monitor and ruthlessly enforce separation and protection from the external elements. As an example of the weakness in the society these days; girlfriend applies for firearms licence. Does one day course, passes and buys firearm/s and ammo. Bully boys get handed the arms and ammo as pre-arranged. Non co-op = da bash or worse.
    Soft society is scoffed at.
    But hey; I'm not pc or a PC so the pollies, wokes and psychobabblers don't give a rats about opinions like mine anyways. Heck, what do I know cos I've only worked amongst these communities in forest and rural areas for seven+ decades, and seen it all get worse as the pussies got more control. I have no degree in bullsh..t.

    yip the bully boys will always have that...and drug dependency to put pressure on..... they werent called crack whores for nothing.
    the trick/balancing act is to still allow law abiding folks access to stuff and to try and stop the "bully boys" from getting it.....yeah that is as daft as it sounds,pipe dreams...meth pipe at that... only way to break the bully boys power is to break the bully boys...we arent yet in a Chicago cartel senario but only because the bully boys have it too easy in our soft society.... why kill the goose that keeps laying golden eggs every thursday???

    Productive work / employment for "unemployed persons" can easily become mandatory and wipe out "idle hands". Whether it be tree planting or state house painting or collecting seaweed for fertilizer or construction or recycling clothing. Being occupied if physically and mentally able could be compulsory for ex jailbirds and or associates. Those who show positive effort could be graduated to state sponsered managed apprenticeships or other trades and professions. Some form of compulsion amd overseeing for several years per person is required though imo.

    All of what you have said, highlights what Agencies (who try to support released prisoners) , have been telling Governments for years : There is very-little/ no support for Offenders once they are released from custody .The Very-Luck ones , have work organised for them, in a location that is new to them . This is very rare though. Many return to low-socio-economic families where crime is accepted and sometimes encouraged . Accommodation is next to impossible to find, criminal-records stop people from renting etc. You need a Bank-account and address to access the benefit, many are illiterate to some degree and also on the autism-spectrum. I'm not singing some lefty-liberal-song here, just pointing out facts. In these circumstances, where do you go ? You go straight back to where you were, or a contact you made 'Inside'. I dont have the answer, maybe enforced 'Mentor-ship' or something along those line, could alter the outcome . While I laughed, and loved the Idea of Changi , I wouldnt want to see the outcome of more Triad-connections, which would definitely come about .

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
