The Gangs of Papua New Guinea | 101 East

Port Moresby, the capital of Papua New Guinea, is regularly ranked one of the most dangerous cities in the world.

From armed robberies and car-jackings to murders, the gangs who rule the streets are known to be ruthless. They often recruit young people from the countryside, who move to the city in a desperate bid to escape poverty. The gangs target the country’s wealthy elite, many of whom have become rich thanks to PNG’s rich natural resources.

With rare access to gang members and the police, 101 East explores PNG’s violent underbelly.

  • ALLAH the only GOD did not Create People to behave in this manner. All People are mixed with the immortal enemies without the Persons awareness, this World is under them, People are not all themselves. The immortal enemies (devils) out smart People in every way, hard to know they are actually in every Persons life. One way the other they get the Person to sin against their own soul in their lifetime. Only I'm aware of them. I'm the Authorized Prophet of ALLAH and I'm with two Arch Angel's Micheal and Camil. I'm here to help and make People understand, they are not alone and all People need ALLAH help. All religions are at wrong, all believing in different beleifs. ALLAH wants only one true faith, under guidance of ALLAH.

  • Not all but one reason behind becoming a criminal is because of police behaviour. First the police should be educated well with proper knowledge in dealing with different situations.

  • Wherever poverty exists there will be violent street crime. This kind of crime will only continue expand if the world does not address the disparities between rich and poor created by this system of socialism for the rich. It is naive to think that the poor aren’t ambitious and hard working. If options aren’t readily available or apparent those who are industrious will do what they do best in order to attain their goals.

    • @You are correct But bruh indonesia enacts positive discrimination to papuan, which means they're more likely to enroll public uni, they're more likely to get a job in public service and all the leaders are local native papuan. if you enact the same policy in some other island, it would be chaos

    • The colonisation as you put it was fairly light and brief. Mainly it consisted of bringing law and order, health services and some education to the people who had little of these things - village traditionally fought village. There was extremely little exploitation. Yes mining produced an environmental problem on the Fly River. But royalties from mining and the $500 million Australia has given PNG every year since independence in 1975 is the main source of govt revenue. PNG has been independent for 45 years. Not every problem in the developing world has been caused by colonisation. If you want to see what true colonisation is about go to Irian Jaya and see what the Indonesians are doing.

Guinea. Some people who have not been to PNG, will now believe all your lies after watching this videos. This is not whats happening right now. European countries and some other countries are wosrt than us. We are just small Pacific island country, who have love for everyone who visit our country. Try something positive about PNG instead of painting bad image of our country.
