Strike Force Raptor, Mike Baird's Gestapo
If in our court rooms a judge & jury will grant us the presumption of innocence until proven other wise, why does the N.S.W Premier Mike Baird & Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione think its acceptable to not extend the same rights throughout our communities?
Anti-consorting laws in N.S.W were passed in 2012 & have been heavily enforced, since a High Court challenge failed in October 2014. The laws make it illegal for any person to associate with two or more convicted criminals. So for the crime of simply talking to with 2 friends, who have criminal history with no regard to their current standing in society, you could be thrown in jail for up to 3 years, if you were continue the association after an official warning from police.
The N.S.W Tattoo Parlour Act was approved by State Parliament in 2012 & has seen over 50 licenses either refused renewal or rejected or grounds of association with an outlaw motorcycle club member. These laws are effecting honest citizen's with clean criminal histories for knowing a member or even just your sister's, cousin's, gay, retarded, niece knowing a bikie is grounds enough for the Office of Fair Trading to reject their application. The Office of Fair Trading & N.S.W Police under the Tattoo Parlour Act are not required to provide any evidence to state why a license was refused even in the case of an appeal.
Strike force Raptor have gained notoriety with their heavy handed tactics & a high number of arrests that have failed to eventuate into convictions. Tensions flared in late 2015, when Strike Force Raptor descended upon the funeral of Rebels member Darren Wallace. The blatant disregard for the law that Strike Force Raptor showed that day, truly let all present know just how deeply the authoritarian mindset runs through this office. From cutting off procession cars to police vehicles forcing bikes through red lights, only to issue them with a traffic infringement for doing so. Their behaviour was unacceptable but to act in the manner they did at a funeral is simply disgusting.
