Mob Squad - Mongrel Mob - Netflix

Mongrel Mob is an organised street gang based in New Zealand that has a network of more than thirty chapters throughout the country. They are especially active in King Country, Opotiki, Waikato and Hastings. The Mongrel Mob's main rival is the Black Power gang and there have been several very public and violent clashes between the two gangs over the years.

The gang claims it offers a surrogate 'family' for young men, most of whom are often alienated from their family via joining. A majority of members are from New Zealand's Māori, European or other Polynesian ethnic groups, with Māori or part Māori predominating. A “prospect” is a person who is loyal to the gang but is not a “patched member” yet and must normally do errands or “missions” to show his loyalty to his gang. A “prospect” normally has a “patched member” to report or “clock in” to. This “patched member” normally decides when it is time for the “prospect” to be “patched”. The hierarchy is: captain or president, vice president, sergeant at arms, patched members, prospects. In some cases they use younger blood gangs as prospects. There were 934 members in prison in April 2013, making up more than a tenth of all New Zealand prisoners. In the Wellington region, there were an estimated 194 “patched members” in 2013.
