Fashion police: New Queensland laws continue Australia’s misguided war on bikies

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceResearch

Abstract

[Extract]
The Queensland government has revealed proposed new laws to combat bikies. This is in response to Labor’s election promise to review the former Newman government’s anti-bikie laws. The new legislation proposes to ban the wearing of all gang colours in public, marking an Australian first.

But what will these laws achieve? And is the threat real or perceived?
