  1. Is it all- because of the Bail Amendment Act? or do we also have concerns with other pieces of legislation, such as ‘3 strikes’? what else contributes to overincarceration? What I am concerned with is the systemic racism, in the entire justice system, the institutional mentailty is appalling, there has to be a wider approach at addressing the increasing prison population especially for our people [Maaori]. Maybe, it was the last governments way [National] of increasing employment because that is what it is, it is a business, and immigrant white Afician’s are doing well in these career’s.
