 Teen killed over t-shirt colour, say residents

Murupara residents had welcomed patched Mongrel Mob members into their close-knit community to attend a funeral, but say the gang responded by killing an innocent youth for wearing the wrong coloured T-shirt.

Jordan Herewini died in his own backyard on Tuesday night after he was run over twice by his brother Mahu's truck, which witnesses say had been stolen by an out-of-town Mob member.

The 16-year-old had earlier been in a scuffle with visiting gang members over his yellow T-shirt, as the colour is associated with the local - rival - Tribesmen gang.

Detective Sergeant John Wilson of the Rotorua CIB would not confirm if the incident was gang-related, but said the killing "certainly has gang overtones".

Grieving Murupara residents yesterday paid tribute to Jordan, who was described as a hard-working teenager who dreamed of joining the Navy.

Sad but a few years ago we had a similar less serious incedent at the primary school with those wearing red shirts and links to the Bloods beating up everyone in a blue shirt (Kript colour).
The College has had to get so strict about it that mufti days are no more and multi shaded beannies and scarves are banned. Only plain black and navy are allowed.

I was thinking when i read this about the 'wrong colour' shirt.

Id rather this was about the reality - and that as I see it - is that the kid was killed because he was a MEMBER OF ANOTHER GANG!!!!

Lets state it as it is - lets not fudge around the truth.
