A group of more than a dozen army and Taskforce Echo police officers swooped on the property in Technical Drive, Craigieburn, around 8.45am to search
the vehicle, which was believed to contain stolen parts.
Police escorted a man, who arrived in a ute with another man shortly after the search began, off the property before the men drove away.
Prime mover with allegedly stolen parts seized from bikies by police and military(AUS)
Not sure what is going on here but seems like the military are doing joint operations with the police.
Not sure how unusual this is.
Anyone Know if this is unusual?
Is this training them for a bigger operation?
But the raids have proved once again that the criminals will always have weapons, gun bans or no gun bans.
(Hope I put this in the right place.)
The military do not do joint operations with the police on a regular basis.
The Army was called in to provide LOGISTICAL support.
This is not a case of soldiers running around suburban streets in combat gear.
If you look at the video footage of the operation, you will see a logistical/engineering army vehicle being used, and soldiers in their fatigues(NO
COMBAT GEAR IN SIGHT) going over one of the prime movers with the stolen engine.
Now, a truck engine is a pretty big damn piece of machinery.
Police do not commonly chase down stolen truck engines..purely because they are so big to steal in the first place. This is a rare incident, and the
police decided to call the army for some heavy lifting support.
The police in Victoria(where this happened) have been cracking down hard lately against the Hells Angels. Over 700 LAW ENFORCEMENT were involved, this
included local stat police and federal police as well as customs agents.
There have been multiple raids.
What the police are looking for in particular at the moment is two high powered military assault rifles. An M4 and AK47. Both of which have been USED
by the Hells Angels in shootings against rival gangs.
Make no mistake, groups like the Hells Angels are not a bunch of old men who enjoy riding motorbikes with the wind in their hair.
They are a multinational criminal organization, and are basically a type of low intensity domestic and international terrorist group.
A few years ago in the state of South Australia the local Hells Angels chapters got into an on-off war with a street gang. The situation got to the
point where senior Hells Angels in the United States sent orders that basically amounted to kill orders. The local chapters were to shoot, stab, bash,
etc any rival gang member they saw on sight. No questions asked, no ifs or buts. They were to take action immediately. And why? Because they felt
their organizations reputation was being tarnished and weakened.
This is how they react over their reputation.
And we've all seen how they react amongst them selves(them selves being between rival gangs) when their illegal operations and the profits from them
We've had bombings in suburbs, shootings and wild west style shoot outs in public places, attempted assassinations in cafes, bashings, stabbings,
assassinations in suburban streets, in super markets, home invasions where children have been shot, drive by shootings of homes where gang members
USED TO LIVE(and where innocent people now live).
I, as an Australian, am bloody glad that the police are finally cracking down.
Because things are about to get a whole lot worse in Australia, with the American based Mongols moving in and patching over the Finks MC(which has a
reputation as one of the most violent gangs in Australia). The Finks and Hells Angels hate each other. The Hells Angels and Mongols hate each other.
The Mongols are now in Australia, and are automatically one of the biggest gangs with the take over of the Finks.
The drug trade isn't slowing down in Australia any time soon, it's growing at a very fast pace.
With another violent gang establishing it self by taking over an existing violent gang, both of whom have an existing violent rivalry against another
existing violent gang, well....what could possibly go wrong with that...?
