Rebel Funereal Road Disruptions

johnboy 30 March 2009 85

The ABC brings word that our roads are going to be clogged today as the Rebels indulge in ornate processions for the funeral of Richard Roberts.

    Local and interstate motorcyclists are expected to join funeral processions for Mr Roberts stretching several kilometres.

    The first is planned about 9:30am AEDT from Mawson to Queanbeyan.

    About an hour later the riders will then travel to the crematorium at Mitchell before heading to Fyshwick about lunchtime.

    Motorcyclists are expected to begin leaving Canberra about 4:00pm.

At least you’ll know why.

aa Your so naive, I can’t believe you actually believe in what you are saying, you haven’t been in a situation minding your own business and want what you have worked hard for, when you are approched that they want your business for nothing, continual harrashing phone calls and going to your business wearing their colours, you surely were born in Canberra and believe what The Capital wants people to believe. You really need to do a reality check

Belray, I took some footage at Bredbo from across the road from the Pancake House as you guys took off. I’ll put it up on YouTube at some stage.

I look forward to it. It was a great ride.

Cheers…..

Two buildings, same block of land, apparently.

A search shows that address as being a Meat Warehouse

Where did you get it? Did they take it over recently? Cover business? Disposing of bodies?

So where in Fyshwick in the Rebels club house?

aa, that is the most naive view on OMCGs I’ve ever seen. Bravo.

It’s bollocks. I have mates who even gave up the weed to work for the ADF; that’s about the most noble sacrifice I have ever heard anybody making for this country.

:sniff:

Excuse me, there’s something in my eye.

Even our defence force here, I guarantee you if they had to do a regular random blood test (without notifying them 2 weeks prior that they’re gong to be tested) more than 90% will fail.

90% really? In the ADF are we? Source?

yeah. want to see where that little gem comes from. and so would a lot of my mates and muster buddies. the “defence force” you refer to, care to elaborate whether you mean civvies or uniforms? or maybe it is a “tar everyone in the adf with the same brush”?

My statistics are 99% more accurate than your statistics.

okay apologies for the personal swipe.
you may, or may not be delusional.

I think that is worth looking at again – I wouldn’t keep a dog unless it could control itself without attacking other people (‘provoked’ or not). I’m absolutely astounded that you’re trying to argue that bikies are all ‘good blokes’ while at the same time tacitly endorsing their use of violent action.

their goals is to get people together of a similar interest in bikes.

As for the AFP, i don’t think its an exception. St Kilda police station a couple of years ago had over 95% of their police force being investigated for corruption.

Even our defence force here, I guarantee you if they had to do a regular random blood test (without notifying them 2 weeks prior that they’re gong to be tested) more than 90% will fail.

Even in our defence force, there’s been 5 people that I know of that have been caught dealing drugs, and that’s people I know of!

As I said, all dealings with bikies I’ve had have been good. Never any issues. Even when they go out, they don’t wear any colours and repect poeple. Unless those people provoke them that is. And if someone provokes them, I say they deserve what happens to them. There’s a lot of people are all big when it comes to word, and are smart arses, but don’t be a hero unless you can back it up.

Yawn.
I think you might be a little delusional. seriously.
They are essentially an OUTLAW MOTORCYCLE GANG.
emphasis on outlaw and gang…
hello???

So you seem to be saying that they are perfectly decent people that are respectful, but that if someone provokes them then they deserve what happens to them (ie. getting the crap beaten out of them). This doesn’t seem to match up.

It is well known the practices that are common among groups like this and their involvement in the criminal underworld. these are not random fantasies that the evil motocycle hating faeries have made up..

And your comments about the police force and defence are just ridiculous.

‘Under investigation’ is not the same as guilt. The reason that 95% of St Kilda police station were ‘under investigation’ was that there was an anti-corruption investigation going on – it’s obvious that you’ll have to investigate the bulk of the force.

It’s also worth noting that you’re confusing AFP (Federal police) with St Kilda police force, who are a State entity.

Even our defence force here, I guarantee you if they had to do a regular random blood test (without notifying them 2 weeks prior that they’re gong to be tested) more than 90% will fail.

The defence force *does* have regular random drug tests.

As I said, all dealings with bikies I’ve had have been good. Never any issues. Even when they go out, they don’t wear any colours and repect poeple. Unless those people provoke them that is. And if someone provokes them, I say they deserve what happens to them. There’s a lot of people are all big when it comes to word, and are smart arses, but don’t be a hero unless you can back it up.

One anecdote proves precisely nothing.

The fact that you back this up with the old ‘and they probably deserve it anyway’ demonstrates a thuggish mind. Are you really saying that people should be beaten up for talking the wrong way to a bikie?

What a marvellously civilised world we live in.

Are you suggesting that 90% of defence force personel are on drugs? You might consider getting off them before throwing accusations around like that.

So i take it ONLY bikes deal drugs, commit crimes and cause trouble! Hmm, out of the tens of thousands of drug dealers in Australia, how many of them are bikies? There’s around 600 or so Rebels in all of Australia.

But, they do some good too. I know a couple of years ago they donated $10,000 to the Queanbeyan hospital. They also are very involved with taking kids with cancer on joy rides.

So yes, there are some shady characters in the group, but there’s shady characters in every group. Look at the AFP here. In the past few months, there’s been 2 involved with child pornography, one with steriods and a few others being investigated for corruption.

I don’t see anywhere people saying that only bikies deal drugs etc.

“There are some shady characters in the grioup, but there’s shady character in every group.”
Ah – the difference being with AFP officers are the exception in a group thats essential goal is about upholding the law and assisting the community.
What is the Rebel’s goal/vision (other than being a real tough bikie gang)?
