GANGS - A "Mish Mash" of Law


Whenever there is yet another gang atrocity, the debate gets inflamed and there is much rhetoric along the lines of "let's ban the gangs!" and little analysis of the existing laws. 


Before we can have that debate, we need to understand the existing law as it relates to gangs.


Search Warrants


Any offending can be the subject of a search warrant.  Any police officer, who believes on reasonable grounds that there is relevant evidence on named premises, can quickly be granted a search warrant to enter and search.  That officer applies to the District Court.


Emergency and hot pursuit cases do not require search warrants.


But search warrants must have the preliminary justification all reasonable belief.


Should we widen the basis for search warrants?

Feedback/Blogs/Reviews from related topic: Crimes - Time Limits???
"I also found the topic on the Limitation Act 1950 helpful because it dealt with time limits for civil cases . . . 2 years for defamation (without getting leave), 6 years for contracts etc. Good to get it all on one site. I thought I had a good case for defamation but I really left it too late. Des N - Tauranga"
