Despite the Chief Police Officer saying "If there's something that keeps me awake at night, it's gangs in Canberra". @GENTLEMANMick still wants to believe that @JeremyHansonMLA is wrong when it comes to gangs.

I support @CPOACT calls for tougher anti bikie laws. We must prioritise community safety and prevent further violence in our suburbs.
