Gangsters in Paradise - The Deportees of Tonga
 

 
In Gangsters in Paradise - Deportees of Tonga, VICE embeds with four Tongan nationals who have been sent back to the tiny island nation where they were born after serving prison time in New Zealand and the United States. Former gang members, they often struggle to reconnect with the culture, the language, and the people.

They are haunted by the stigma of their criminal pasts, which casts a pall over their employment prospects and puts a barrier between them and their compatriots.

Government support for returnees is non-existent, wages are low, and with Tonga in the midst of a methamphetamine crisis, the temptations to revert to the lives of crime they hoped to leave behind when they left prison are high.

man

it blows my mind

how did humans migrate from africa to places like tonga

i know it happened over a long period but eventually they walked all the way to asia and then created boats just searching for random sh*t?

Theres a theory that all the continents of the world used to be one massive land. If this is true it makes sense that migration was easier than you think.

Why is it that whenever I see some sh*t in my suggestions on YouTube, that sh*t ends up on Boxden 2 days later? I was watching this sh*t the other day. Does everybody in the world get suggested the same sh*t or do we all get suggested the same videos cuz we're on here, watching all the same videos?

If you click on any video on boxden, YouTube's algorithm places you on a list for videos that can be related.
Because we all click on the videos, we are all on the same list of algorithms

I work wit a Tongan (in AZ, go figure) and he said his wife also Tongan, can't cook for sh*t lol. Said him and their kids only like half of what she cooks

On another note he said back during his great great great grandparents days back in the islands it wasn't abnormal to leave the crib and come back to find the baby sitter cooking their infant

All other facts check out about him being Tongan n beefin wit Samoans so i believe him about the cannibalism sh*t. I always clown my co worker who be bumpin heads wit him like bro u might b hood but he's gna end up clubbin ya a*s n put u Ina stew

Cannibalism was very real among the islanders.
I had a chance to travel to the Easter Islands, in the middle of Hawaii and Chile ( Island with the giant statues of heads).

Their are very few native islander descendants - spanish blood has come through - but they tell you of how common it was for people to eat each when resources became scarce.

The island civilizations are interesting as fu*k - real survival of the fittest due to the fact that the land area and the limited resources upon it forced them to look elsewhere, which made them become adept at sailing. I went fishing with a dude who grew up in Samoa and man, that sh*t is next level lol

Them tongans some big tough dudes. They send alot of dudes to the NFL from them small islands.


In the Texas they got and school called Euless Trinity where the community is full of polynesian kids because the Airport in Dallas hired a bunch of those people from the island in the 80s.

They be winning championships cuz they be having them big a*s tongans on the line. They got a huge advantage over some local teams. They done been on Gatorade commercials and everything.

those cats are like naturally 25% bigger humans they eat, Iím surprised his wife canít burn but it might be they have American tastes I see these cats cook whole hogs in the ground meat so tender it melts, thatís wild about the cannibalism but island life no joke anywhere to be real
