BIKIE BUSTERS – Wednesday March 27 2013

– Victoria Police has declared a major blitz on outlaw bikie gangs.

The force today launches Taskforce Eagle to fight potential outlaw motorcycle gang infiltration into its ranks.

It come as Melbourne Comancheros president Amad “Jay” Malkoun denies infiltrating police or having inside knowledge of being the subject of probes.

“It’s nonsense. It’s not true,” Malkoun, a convicted drug trafficker, told the Herald Sun.

Malkoun said he had known three Victorian police officers – one serving and two ex-members – but they had become distant since the force’s declarable associations policy.

Malkoun rejected the claims of infiltration of police, made in reports in Fairfax Media, which also named Bandidos boss Toby Mitchell.

The Herald Sun was made aware of an investigation into Malkoun in late 2010, which went nowhere. Victoria Police offered no explanation when the investigation failed to deliver any results after more than a year.

Police will launch Taskforce Eagle to tackle potential outlaw motorcycle gang infiltration into its ranks.

“It is a significant concern to Victoria Police that OMCGs are seeking to corrupt police members,” a statement said. “This will not be tolerated.

“We have introduced a number of improvements aimed at safeguarding police members from the risk of corruption, and rooting it out where it exists.

“Central to this will be Taskforce Eagle, which has been set up within the Professional Standards Command (formerly Ethical Standards Department).

“OMCGs have a clear interest in cultivating police contacts so that they can be compromised and coerced into providing police information, and so we are sending a clear warning to police members that they need to be alive to the threats at all times, and complying with internal policies designed to protect them and the organisation.”

The taskforce launch comes as Victoria’s outlaw bikie numbers are exploding and gangs turn to prisons to recruit new members, while the threat of an all-out war looms.

There are now 1200 fully patched outlaw bikies within the state, as desperate efforts to quash a feared conflict continue under Victoria Police’s Operation Resound.

Police have vowed more raids on bikie interests and 25 warrants have been executed since March 6th after warnings a bikie war was about to erupt.

Echo Taskforce Detective Inspector Ian Campbell said police would continue their strategy to disrupt the gangs.

Bikie gangs are expanding into rural Victoria and almost half the state’s chapters are based outside the Melbourne metropolitan area – Anthony Dowsley

About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
