Airport security think that my friend Chris
Looks like a terrorist
Yes they always test him
For the explosives residue
Randomly, they say “Hey You!
“Come here and let us rub this swab
“All over you”

It’s all part of the charade
To help the public feel safe
Until the bikies come to pick up their mate
And put a whole new spin
On arrivals at the ‘Terminal‘ 3 gate

I think it’s pretty weird
That they plan to stop the bikies
By introducing anti-bikie laws along the lines
Of the anti-terrorist
Forms of due process

Because it would have gone no further
Stopped well short of murder
If the bikies had been dressed as terrorists
Riding in on camels
And wearing an Islamic head-dress.

I don’t see the point
Of bringing in new laws
‘Cause a murder’s still a murder
Even on the airport floor
It didn’t stop the crime
Do you think it will next time?
The local chapter of Al Qaeda
Fundamentalists called Easy Riders.


And the stories keep coming…

Deaf man killed over noise
From correspondents in Brisbane
September 20, 2004

A BLIND man was jailed for eight years today for killing a deaf man by slashing his throat because he was enraged by the noise coming from his stereo and television.
George Gerard Goeldner, 49, pleaded guilty in the Brisbane Supreme Court for the manslaughter of Francis John Butcher, 54, on January 4, 2002.
Both men lived at the Aid For The Blind Complex at Fairfield on Brisbane’s southside.
Prosecutor Michael Byrne said the men’s units were 20 metres apart and Goeldner had made numerous complaints to management about the noise from Mr Butcher’s unit.
Mr Byrne said Mr Butcher had been given head phones but wasn’t using them because they were uncomfortable in the extreme summer heat.
Goeldner is 90 per cent blind and Mr Butcher was profoundly deaf, and had worked as a city based charity collector for the Aid For The Blind Association for decades.
Mr Byrne said Goeldner snapped when he heard Mr Butcher at the administration office telling staff he intended to have a good weekend, believing this meant he would be making a lot of noise.
Goeldner rushed out with a serrated kitchen knife and saw Mr Butcher at the letter boxes and put it to his throat.
He claimed Mr Butcher who had a prosthetic limb and depended on crutches, slipped from his grasp and his throat was slashed after he could no longer support his weight.
Justice James Douglas said psychiatrists agreed that Goeldner was of impaired mental capacity because of brain damage, depression and inadequate epilepsy medication.
I just love the way this has been written, letting all the details slowly escape throughout the entire piece.
In fact…  this is GOLD.
