Bikie crackdown - letter from wife of Rebels member

My Husband is a member of the Rebels Motorcycle Club.

He in not a criminal, we both work ( or at least he did, he is a Tattooist), we pay our taxes, raise our children.

Since these ridiculous laws have come into affect our once quite normal, orderly lives have been turned upside down.

Those who think all bikers are the underbelly of society are really quite mistaken.

What sort of a person makes an opinion of a person solely based on the type of club they are in or their preference of Transport.

Not a very credible one you might say, and that would be true.

Yet Australians have not even been given the chance to make their own opinion these laws and political propaganda are telling people what they are to think, they take our civil rights away as citizens.

Perhaps we as Australians, people of the so called free country need to take a good look at the people who have imposed these laws on us, are they credible and reliable enough to make up our minds for us?

Do they really have our best interests in mind or is this crack down just a smoke screen to blur our vision of what the real agenda is?

I bet they have never even been to a clubhouse on a Friday night or gone for ride with a mate.

So what makes them so knowledgeable on the subject of club life.

Well they seem to think they are, knowledgeable enough to tell us what we must think.

They have made a mockery of the Judicial system, and have spat in the face of Human rights.
