The Resurrection of Australia’s Most Violent Gang: Brothers 4 Life

We interviewed members of the B4L in Blacktown.

I heard the turbo from the blacked-out Subaru WRX before it pulled up at Blacktown station. Three burly boys in Nautica shirts, bright shoes, and razor sharp fades jumped out for a cigarette; they were members of Brothers 4 Life (B4L), the most violent street gang in recent Australian history.

To break the ice, I told them I appreciated how every fine detail of their car was painted black. “We call it murdered. When you murder a car it’s a total black out...like death,” replied Omar*, a 27-year-old gang member. We were headed to an Afghan restaurant in Blacktown to talk about what inspired them to join the B4L.

Gladiators OMCG member charged over animal cruelty and drug cultivation, NSW

A life-member of the Gladiators outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCG) has been charged after Raptor North located prohibited drugs and weapons, and the RSPCA seized animals from a property near Grafton, NSW Police say.

About 5pm on Sunday 30 September 2018, officers from the Criminal Groups Squad’s Strike Force Raptor North and Coffs/Clarence Police District attended a rural property at Lanitza for the purpose of a Firearms Prohibition Order (FPO) search.

While attempting to locate the subject of the FPO – a 36-year-old man – officers located a small cannabis crop growing on the property.

They also located a .303 rifle in long grass a short distance from the main homestead. It has been seized for forensic and ballistic examination.

Bikies’ bad blood boils after assassination bid

The drive-by shooting on a suburban street was a clear sign that the feud between the Rebels and Comanchero gangs was heating up.

As a 53-year-old Rebels associate rode home from a meeting, an unmarked SUV with a blue flashing light signalled for him to pull over.

Used to police attention on anyone linked to a bikie gang, the motorcyclist likely had no sense of the impending danger that Tuesday evening last month in Calista. But instead of officers stepping out to question him, he instead found himself staring down the barrel of a gun.

As the unknown assailants sped away, nearby residents alerted by the gunshots found the man laying in a pool of blood, lucky to survive bullets that pierced his stomach and arm.

Police say the failed assassination attempt was an escalation of the stoush, which had previously been characterised by overnight firebombings at tattoo parlours and shots fired at a Rebels bikie’s house.

Comanchero charged with attempt murder of former gang president

A Canberra Comanchero arrested while trying to board an international flight will fight allegations he attempted to murder the gang's former ACT president.

Axel Sidaros, 24, allegedly had a ticket to fly to Abu Dhabi when he was arrested at Melbourne Airport last week.

Taskforce Nemesis extradited Mr Sidaros to the ACT from Victoria over the weekend, and he appeared in the ACT Magistrates Court on Monday.

Mr Sidaros, appearing before Chief Magistrate Lorraine Walker, entered pleas of not guilty to 13 charges, including attempted murder, arson, firearm possession, trespass, and intentionally inflicting grievous bodily harm.

The court heard the majority of the charges stemmed from a June attack on former Comanchero ACT president Peter Zdravkovic.

The ACT chapter of the Comanchero Outlaw Motorcycle Gang was plunged into an internal war after it split into two factions earlier this year.
