Man with cancer dies from cancer. That's the story unless I'm missing something?

I bet he was shocked when he copped it. That fellow, from what I know of his history, would have been very surprised to die of some biological cause, as opposed to an overdose of lead, steel, or a sudden lack of blood of some other violently imposed type.
And, for those posters who have been ragging on the fellow, it is worth pointing out, that by all accounts, Chopper restricted his criminal violence to those who had committed criminal violence themselves. He might not have been a role model or anything that glorious, but there have been much worse scumbags than him, and there still are, only most of them do what ever they like, to anyone and everyone. At least he did not make a habit of just offing random school teachers, doctors, nurses, or anyone who came within reach, unlike some of the scumbags I have read about.
Seems he was a "Snitch" from many years passed. There is something like 40 murders he's credited with, which makes me wonder about a much darker "conspiracy" if you will.
For him to be involved in all that he was, and with such a long criminal career with so many bodies involved, and working as an informant for the feds, it really makes me wonder if the most successful criminals are the ones who are backed by the government.
Sure they "help" the government for the war on _______, but it seems like a good number simply get passes on all their crimes just turning in others to keep themselves going.
Isn't that just state sponsored gangsterism in another dress? Seems it really doesn't pay to be a "stand up guy" anymore. Imagine the types of behaviour they are promoting.
I hate it when gangsters become celebrities! Kill the lot of them!
A notable figure in Australia's history whom should be remembered, but I do not understand why so many Australians idolised this man or why the media feel the need to glamorise his life. I do not enjoy down talking people that have just passed, so I won't say more.
