Hell in the heartland

There's nothing exceptional about the pose here in the gang's heartland, it's as commonplace as saying "cheese". What's striking is that one of the fingers Edward is brandishing at the camera has since been blown clean off. The 21-year-old on the far left of the picture now faces attempted murder charges for a rifle attack on Edward and Harmyn. And the bandanna-masked 16-year-old to Diamond's left is dead. Jordan Herewini was killed in nearby Murupara in January, when he was run down, then reversed over, by Mongrel Mob members driving his family's stolen ute.
