His brutal murder of Vanessa Pickering has shocked our Nation which, sadly is becoming numb to the sickening violence and brutality of far too many murders.
We have a deep loathing of White Power gangs. Theirs is a creed based purely on hate.
We knew some of Chastons associates well. They were a group of sullen, unbelieveably angry, insular boys to whom white power was a religion and they worshipped at the alter with all the fanaticism of suicide bombers.
One of the group mentioned in the article was Neihana Foster, yes a young angular faced Maori with a bigwhite chip on his shoulder who did time in Invercargill jail. And there is nothing that hates more than a young Maori who follows the religion of the Fourth Reich.
This group did the bidding of the white power gang which held dominance over the South Island at the time - The Road Knights.
But there was another young man who was in the thrall of Foster, and the white power rag tag bunch of haters , while he served time.
His name was Scott Watson.
