Chief bikie buster answers your questions

Got something to say on bikie laws?

On Thursday from 12pm-1pm, Brisbane Times connects readers with the man heading up the police taskforce which is tackling criminal bikie gangs, Detective Superintendent Mick Niland.

It’s already been a busy year for the top cop, and there is growing dissent against the government as a result of the controversial new laws.

According to the government and police, it’s due to misinformation, which is why Detective Superintendent Niland has agreed to answer your questions.

According to Detective Superintendent Niland, the public is fully supportive of police actions against bikies.

The police’s chief bikie buster will motor through as many questions as possible for a full hour, and the full transcript will be available for all to see.


If you’re part of a social motorcycle group, will you really be pulled over and harassed by police? Are innocent people at risk of being persecuted by these laws?

Police have been open about their responsibilities. Detective Superintendant Niland’s job is to “disrupt, dismantle and eliminate” criminal motorcycle gangs in Queensland.
