Dr Mark Lauchs: Fact Check on civil liberties and the ‘bikie’ laws

Mark Lauchs examines the claim that Queensland bikie laws will infringe civil liberties.  ‘The legislation specifically targets people who are associated with named outlaw motorcycle gangs.  But its definition of this association is loose and allows opportunities for innocent people to be caught by the legislation.  In the end, the statement that law abiding motorbike riders have “nothing to worry about” cannot be claimed with any certainty.’
