You cant do right for doing wrong

Recent incidents related to bikers/clubs have once again seen an upwelling of opinionated comment from the usual quarters. I of course refer to the incident in Waco, Tx. I don't know what happened and I don't want to know either, thats the business of those involved. As we all know though, if the media doesn't have a full story they either embellish what they have or just plain make it up. What does concern me greatly about this is certain TV stations wheeling out their so called "expert" who has the "inside information" on bike clubs. And of what does his pearls of wisdom inform us ? Absolutely nothing of any substance. According to the guy I heard, in the USA a bottom rocker refers to territory claimed by that club, doh, its written on the freaking rocker for gods sake. In Europe though the bottom rocker refers to a district controlled by the club for the purpose of drug distribution, what a load of old nonsense! Where on Earth do they dig these characters up from.

We are further informed from an article on the Sky news website quoting a police officer as saying that many of these patch wearing bikers can be very pleasant but beware, they are only being pleasant for their own ends, what!! Its no wonder clubs don't give out a lot of information on what they are up to as it WILL be misconstrued and used as a blunt object to hit bikers with. Damned if you say something, damned if you don't. I know for a fact of many clubs, some that I am associated with and some that I am not, who have done charitable works and tried their best not to claim credit over the matter. You can see why.

I have little doubt that the so called great and good would view my post here as little more than propaganda, well propaganda normally has an objective. Sorry but I don't have an agenda, I really don't. You came to this website and read this comment under your own steam with no prompting from me or my club. In the future take some time and think about what the medias so called experts are saying, what their background is or is said to be, what their corroboration for their credentials are and what may be the purpose behind their comments. And remember its the bikers today, when they are gone who do you think they will start on, because they will, maybe you. The words of Pastor Martin Niemoller are probably pretty apt even though you may not be religious or even agree with some of his sentiments.

Nope, I am not going to write Niemoller's words down here, look him up and you will find it, don't be lazy, I may be trying to influence you!
