WARWICKSHIRE POLICE will launch a high profile security operation ahead of this year's Bulldog Bash.

The Force willl implement a stop-and-search policy throughout the event's duration, in an attempt to discourage rival biker gangs from causing any trouble at the Hells Angel-organised 5-day rally.

Assistant Chief Constable Bill Holland said officers wanted to protect people from harm during the motorcycle-based event.

"This is not to say that all those attending are criminals - the vast majority are decent people out to enjoy themselves. But there is a small criminal minority, and it is against these that the police operation will be targeted," he said.

Is that why there is always a high police presence around the houses of parliament? Shame they never arrest any of those thieving b@stards.

So the Warwickshire force can tell a crim just by looking at him? Be interesting to see how many of the guys they stop are wearing patches...

Note to the feds- most of the Patriots attending are serving/ex forces. The same f*ckers guarding your back 24/7 around the globe. 

The Virago Owners Club, HOG and feck knows how many others are more likely to be middle class bambis enjoying a little bit of escapism than bad ass nomads.

None of the HAs many rival clubs are daft enough to kick off at one of the few public events almost garunteed to generate a bit of good will for Motorcycle Clubs in general.

But hey, don't let that stop you wasting your officers time and effort over-policing an event that has never had any history of significant criminal activity.

I'll second that, very well put, I especially liked this bit;  'Note to the feds- most of the Patriots attending are serving/ex forces. The same f*ckers guarding your back 24/7 around the globe.'

Nice one, never a TRUER word spoken.
