Australia - ~Gypsy Jokers gather for funeral that will soon be illegal~

GYPSY Jokers from across Australia have gathered in Adelaide for a funeral which would be illegal under new anti-bikie laws introduced by the State Government.

The bikies were farewelling club president Wayne "Chiller" McGrath, 42, a father of four and part-owner of four tattoo parlours, who suffered a fatal heart attack last week while exercising on a treadmill at his Virginia home.

His sudden death prompted public tributes from Gypsy Jokers members nationally and overseas, including the US, Germany, South Africa and Norway.

More than 300 people - including more than 100 Gypsy Jokers from Adelaide, NSW, Victoria, Queensland, Western Australia, Germany, Norway and the US - this afternoon attended his funeral at Sydney Harrison Funerals, Ridgehaven, before travelling to the Smithfield Memorial Cemetery, Evanston, where his body was buried.

The mourners - who included wives, girlfriends and children - then went to the Gypsy Jokers clubrooms at Wingfield for a wake expected to last most of the week.

Legal sources said under the new anti-bikie laws due to take effect late next month, the funeral and wake would have been declared prohibited events as bikies will be prohibited from associating with each other once their gangs have been declared illegal organisations by Attorney-General Michael Atkinson.

The laws - the first of their kind in Australia apart from the federal anti-terror legislation - have been attacked by lawyers and civil liberatarians as "draconian" and an erosion of individual rights, particularly freedom of association.

Gypsy Jokers Adelaide chapter sergeant-at-arms "Davo" today said it was wrong that bikies would no longer be able to gather together at such events as funerals, weddings and birthday parties with their families and friends.

"They're f.....d," he said.

"How can something like a funeral be illegal? We're here to bury our brother and pay our respects to him and his family."

Davo, who would not provide his full name, said Mr McGrath was a "staunch member, a dedicated family man".

"He leaves a big hole and he will be missed," he said.

The laws contain provisions that members of outlaw motorcycle clubs can only associate with direct family members such as their parents, brothers and sisters, grandparents and children.

They are not permitted to gather together or have contact with their uncles, aunties or cousins - or neighbours and other friends or acquaintances.

Anyone who breaches the laws - whether they are bikies or individuals having contact with bikies at least six times a year - can be jailed for up to five years.

Control orders restraining the movements of individual bikies can also be issued by magistrates and judges on the application of SA Police.

Criminal intelligence or any other information used by police to obtain the control orders must remain secret and anyone issued with an order cannot seek to have it independently reviewed by a judge.

"Don't run in the house..."

Not to take away from losing another one of us in the trenches...but I find this ironic with those who try and "get clean/sober" and start an excercise program that does their ass in. I've seen a shitload of people get off the juice and their personal choice of drug expecting to enjoy a few more years as a spectator...only to drop dead in the process. I mean, when the ol' man said not to "run" in the house...that was probably good advice!

Smoke, do drugs, party, eat red meat, don't excercise, stay up late, ride motorcycles...and die!

Don't smoke, don't do drugs, don't party, be a vegetarian, go to bed early, don't ride motorcycles...die anyway!

WHATS NEXT ?
