Had to laugh at this.
Jail is where you go when you break the LAW. So this just shows that Maori break the law more than other races in NZ. Face up to the FACTS
The government needs to face up to the unfair treatment of Maori in the criminal justice system, the Green Party says.
A United Nations working group has recommended the government undertake a review of the degree of inconsistencies and systemic bias against Maori at all levels of the criminal justice system.
The working group noted that Maori are over-represented in the prison population and warned that incarceration that is the outcome of bias “constitutes arbitrary detention in violation of international law”.
Green Party co-leader Metiria Turei says it’s not OK to have a legal system that sends more Maori to prison with longer sentences.
