Last night TVNZ's 20/20 Janet McIntyre ran a tale of a young man 19 yo who started life in Russia then was adopted from a Russian orphanage by a ChCh woman at that time in a relationship with a German man but unable to have children.
Andrei Schwaab is now a problem for us along with his apparently separated mother.
He has a record of offending that is impressive . Over 200 car thefts and other law breaking up to an AOS encounter involving two Helicopters and god knows what other resources.
I know it is eyewatering what it actually costs to keep a scumbag such as this prick in gaol but perhaps it could be put into perspective if ALL the costs said scroat has cost, were totaled and annualised;
loss of vehicle use,
and welfare to name a few.
Keeping him incarcerated might just be a cheaper option as he shows zero intent to change his ways.
