The civilians have become very afraid of bikers in Australia and this is where it has led: Today, June 23rd, is “Dob in a Bikie” day in Western Australia.
Those who do not speak Hoss-Trial-Yun should substitute the phrase “rat out” for “dob in” and “biker” for bikie.
Dob in a Bikie Day is the idea of Western Australia’s Police Minister Rob Johnson. Mr. Johnson has been complaining in the Australian press that “bikies have been fooling the public into believing they are members of a social club, when in fact they belong to highly organized and sophisticated criminal organizations.”
There is not actually much of a biker menace right now in Western Australia. But there has been a particularly stupid and public biker war in Sydney. That war seems to have been initiated by Notorious – that is it, just Notorious, like Madonna – and the Comanchero Motorcycle Club. And, Western Australia is about 2,000 miles from Sydney but bikers have always made good boogie men.
So extra staff were assigned to man the phones today in a special police call center and by about 6 pm Western Australian time, 111 calls had resulted in 57 new active investigations.
Maam, Tell Us. Does he Snore?
“We don’t want to know who you are, we just want to know what you know about bikies, their activities, their friends and associates,” Assistant Police Commissioner Wayne Gregson said. “Even something as innocuous as car or motorcycle registration numbers, bikies’ colors and their places of employment could all make a difference.”
Oooh! Did that little chill just run up your spine, too? This is what is happening today in an English speaking country with a system of laws based on English Common Law. Just like the United States of America. Oooh! Did you just feel that little chill again?
Now put on your cut and go buy an orphan a lemonade or something. And, steal your old lady some flowers. And, whatever you do, don’t argue with your neighbors!
