    "who made headlines for lying on his border declaration pass "

    Hmmm, was it crumpled?




    He who takes offense when offense was not intended is a fool, yet he who takes offense when offense is intended is an even greater fool for he has succumbed to the will of his adversary.

    When the cops catch up with shooters, 3 undesirables will then have been removed from society.
    A good day for society?

    What always puzzles me with these idiots is that there is invariably a wife and small kids left behind. Are the women involved just as bad, stupid or just desperate?

    Then the poor bloody kids grow up likely to follow their Father.

    Just stopped for a click and collect for school socks and a a fruit shop raid. A bike pushing gent with a fag and drink was commented on by the 12 year old I sent to pick up the socks. I crossed the road and on the way back noted him sitting on a bench at the pedestrian crossing. Tats across his knuckles and more than a few cuts and scratches all over. You have to wonder why anyone would like to advertise they are so down and out or just out of prison for a short visit. Bike due to no license or no car as he clearly was not a fit person.

    The sad bit is as that spot is only a few km from where a selfish turd, now in jail, murdered a young girl just a few years ago. I was not my friendly self and did not say hello as I thought of that poor kid when I saw him. Not from around here I suspect.

    A really gentle bloke in the Navy with me was called Tackle Box due to tats and piercings. The guy today may have mental health issues or similar. Bike riders are not all thugs. Nor are all tattooed people. It must be a miserable life for them and any family. So much money to be made shearing, picking fruit and traveling all over our amazing country even with zero education.

    I do not get it at all

    Not all motor bike riders or club members are tattooed thugs some get what they deserve live by the sword die by the sword but even if someone is a patched member of what the law says is an outlaw club doesn't mean there all bad. The fact that some join a club can be many it could be just a love of bikes or a sense of belonging many military personal do this as they need a sense structure in there life there not bad people.

    That May be the case But the few 'Patched" members that are not actively involved in the drug, standover or other criminal activities carried out by these outlaw clubs either condone or ignore these criminal activities which any sane person would judge them as being just as culpable as the active participants.

    I have Absolutely No problems with bikes and their riders as i have owned/ridden many myself But I do have serious reservations about the organised crime and violence that most of the outlaw bikie groups are responsible for.

    I have no sympathy for Bowden or his ilk, the word around the traps is this was the result of a power struggle in the Mongols MC. I'll post the following as a heads up as to how some one can caught up in these circles.

    A TRAGIC LIFE
    A key member of the Finks “Terror Gang” before he changed his patch to the Mongols, Bowden has lived what Prof Lauchs calls a “crap life”.
    In a sentencing in 2015, the court heard Bowden had been born to biological parents aged 12-year-old at the time of his birth, and was adopted by a family with siblings much older than him.
    Bowden struggled with school and left early, achieving literacy only to a grade 4 level.
    He attended the Australian Institute of Sport where he excelled at cycling, routinely encouraged by his adoptive parents, he applied himself to the sport and was hoping to represent Australia in the 1996 Olympics.
    Despite repeated success, Bowden suffered burn-out and gave the sport away.
    He took up bodybuilding and began frequenting gyms, where he met members of motorcycle clubs, resulting in him becoming a member of Finks.

    Shane Bowden first joined motorcycle gangs in 1996, after his dream of cycling for Australia in the Olympics was foiled. Picture: SuppliedSource:Supplied

    Bowden spent at least 13 years from 2000 to 2015 period in custody, for a variety of offences including serious assaults, drug offences and the equivalent of aggravated burglary.
    Bowden was assessed by a neuropsychologist, Dr Robert Burke, and clinical psychologist Ms Carla Lachner. Dr Burke investigated the possibility of an acquired brain injury, and could not rule it out. He diagnosed extreme depression and impaired cognitive function.
    His first criminal stamp was in July 1996, when he was found with stolen property on his possession. He was convicted and fined $800. In February 1997, Bowden assaulted a woman, was convicted of aggravated assault, and was fined and ordered to pay restitution.
    In 1997, a cover police operation was run on Bowden, where he was found trafficking cocaine with a total amount of 23.409 pure grams. He was convicted of 21 offences, including for some he had committed while on bail, and sentenced to a total of eight years.
    In 2005, he was convicted of assaulting a patron outside a Gold Coast nightclub. He was given a suspended sentence of nine months and ordered to pay $12,500 compensation.

    Bowden’s wrap sheet includes the infamous Ballroom Blitz, in which he and other Finks members attacked a former member for patching over to Hells Angels. Picture: SuppliedSource:Supplied

    He is most well known for his involvement in the 2006 Ballroom Blitz, when Finks members attacked former member Chris Hudson who had patched over to the Hells Angels. At least eight Finks were sent to punish Hudson for leaving the club.
    Professor Lauchs said the group were “supposed to remove Hudson’s Finks tattoo from his back with acid and a paint scraper”.
    Bowden shot Hudson twice during the melee.
    Bowden handed himself in to police a month later and was charged with attempted murder of Hudson, resulting in him being sentenced to 6.5 years for assault occasioning bodily harm and resulted in him being listed as a serious violent offender.
    Most Finks patched over to the Mongols before tough VLAD laws were introduced in Queensland in 2013. The laws, introduced under the Newman government, were designed to stamp out criminal bikie activity. Bowden, like many others, left the state to seek refuge in Melbourne.
    In 2015, Bowden and his then-girlfriend were convicted of a home invasion after the pair broke into a Melbourne apartment, armed with a Bowie knife and crowbar. he demanded money from the two men and women inside. Bowden assaulted one of the men before a scuffle broke out and he stabbed both men.
    He was sentenced to prison, and while there was found with a “racy photograph” of a prison guard.

    He was released in prison in July 2020, where he was met by senior Mongols, including new president Toby Mitchell, who escorted him back to Melbourne in a stretch limousine.
    Fifteen days after his release, he was shot in a drive-by attack. Bowden was wounded while talking to two men in the driveway of a Young St home in Epping. Police said shots were fired from a car, striking Bowden in the lower torso.
    Bowden was then kicked out of the Mongols, and appears to have been attacked as part of “internal politics of the club”, Prof Lauchs said.
    “Sources said the hit was organised to ‘silence’ Bowden and to ‘put him in his place’ by opposing members of the gang.
    “He had been trying to regain his power after leaving prison. While he was in prison and some of his allies had been forced to leave the club, including national president Mark ‘Ferret’ Moroney.”
    While he was recovering from his gunshot wounds in a Melbourne hospital, he contracted COVID-19. After recovering, he left for Queensland, and sparked a media frenzy when it was initially reported he had flown while infectious.
    He was accused of lying on his border declaration pass, and fronted Southport Magistrates Court earlier this month where he was fined just $750 after the magistrate sided with him, citing confusion over the form.
    I’m pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking
