They won't even let the scumbags have a club house. Outlaw bikie gangs I'm talking about.

Correct me if I am wrong as I haven't been paying attention to this issue for a long, long time. Is it only one state (Queensland) in Australia that has introduced any laws re 'bikie gangs'? The opposition party wanted to get rid of them when they were introduced?  The Queensland commission also shifted their focus away from those laws and are reviewing them (they had already weakened their stances on many of the original proposals). I think the ACT looked at the same laws but the human rights watchdog said the low amount of crime doesn't justify the limiting of human rights. 

I was also under the impression that the modern 'bikie' is in their 20s to 30s and Middle Eastern. Not a go at people from the Middle East, but I thought the issue became about organised crime gangs from the region using the banner of 'bike gangs' to do what they would have already done anyway. I don't think they were even riding bikes, mostly driving cars. But due to the media distortion, all 'bikie gangs' ended up suffering in Queensland. Should have just been a direct focus, rather than trying to get everyone (probably a political move as everyone loves a good law and order policy). 

I have no issues with clubs if they keep to themselves. Used to date a club member's daughter in Australia, from what I saw he and his mates were just your everyday guys. I remember my cousin used to hang out with a lot of them, he used to say many of them are doctors, lawyers, accountants etc, guys with professional jobs. Even Google will tell people that.

Yes, a percentage of real 'bikies' are bad eggs. But the same percentage of my football and cricket teams were bad eggs as well. Does that make all sportsman criminals? Does seem a non-issue the media like to jump on. Bigger things to worry about in the world than 2 old men eating their lunch.

I only ever gave it up once, never smoked  again.  Guess i am not as smart as you.

Yet! You might smoke again.how long has it been?

Linking addiction with intelligence is not very smart.

Never saw any bikers with colours in Melbourne, on my last visit recently.

OK, they are all good guys, wouldn't hurt a fly and honest as the day is long. All they want to do is ride their bikes and go on charity runs. Pointless to pursue this conversation.

It is pointless, anyone that has ever been anywhere near the larger bike gangs knows that they are a front for organised crime.

You can't convince some here of that though.

 I was involved with these gangs in my criminal days and certainly don't want my kids mixing with them. 

 

 

I couldn't reply earlier, because I was in prison, sorry. You are openly discussing some old men, who you believe were criminals, but you obviously weren't innocent in your earlier days. That's similar to one Thai teacher gossiping about another Thai teacher that he/she can't speak proper English.

I was a member of a local bike club, but that was our hobby and our colors were there to show from where we were. We donated money to schools, helped poor villages and the bikes were/are our hobby.

What was/is the name of the club? I am sure some members here would be interested in joining your charity works.

Not sure why you felt the need to compare what you did, but there is a vast difference in learning a lesson and being less able than someone else.

 

Maybe you would do better to think before trying to get your post count up.
