Ram raid

It’s not all sunrises and rainbows here in Aotearoa. For a couple of years now there’s been an absolute plague of people stealing cars and ramming them into shops.

It seems to be partly about stealing stuff: jewelry, cigarettes and vapes, liquor are the primary targets. But it’s definitely also about vandalism and just destroying stuff. It’s often kids behind the wheel.

I saw this scene early Sunday morning and it was doubly heartbreaking because it’s the second time in only a few months for that jewelry store. The couple that own the shop are lovely and of a certain age. They must wonder if it makes sense to carry on.
