For those non Australian readers your probably unaware that in Queensland Australia the newly elected Government has with the medias blessing introduced laws which the media bleet out to anyone who will listen as "ANTI BIKIE LAWS". Apparently the new anti bikie laws will reduce crime by 40% if you listen to the media, by making anyone that is in the 1% patch club a criminal. I'm no rocket scientist but I'm fairly sure not every person in a motorcycle social club is a criminal. But new laws in QLD say that they are and that 3 or more people in that said club can't congregate together otherwise they are breaking the law - possibly with a mandatory 3 year gaol(jail) term. What a F*cking load of shit.
These laws are really disguised as anti association laws banned people from meeting together. If the government suddenly decided that members of the catholic church, muslims or the local shooting club were dangerous then you could be stopped from congregating together or be gaoled. The police now have rights to detain and search you for no apparent reason other than they think you may be a member of a bikie gang. There needs to be no proof other than what they think. Very dangerous territory. This shit happened back in WW2 with the Nazi's and we all know how that ended.
These laws are across the board and affect everyone riding a motorcycle in Queensland. Recreational bikers have been targeted, Ulysses members, Vietnam Veterans and every day riders like you and me. Apparently cops can't tell the difference between a sports biker or a 1% Harley rider.
I saw this on the Internet and its F*cking hilarious.
Don't think the police will harass bike riders with these new laws think again. Watch this video and tell me this guy isn't being harassed. Does it require 5-6 cops to talk to one biker who is co-operating with them even though he clearly doesn't like them. Can't say I blame him really.
To top it off the officer asks him why he's wearing a vest on a hot 30°C day. You f'ing stupid bitch. I ride on 35°C+ days in a full leather outfit. Its something called safety you f'ing half wit.
