THERE are Ban­di­dos chap­ters strewn across the globe, and each af­fil­i­ated gang has an in­sa­tiable lust for blood. Here, au­thor Alex Caine de­tails the in­fa­mous ‘Milperra Massacre’ in Australia.

Caine ex­plains: “On Fa­ther’s Day 1984, in Milperra, a south­west­ern sub­urb of Syd­ney, the Bri­tish Mo­tor­cy­cle Club – a tough but un­af­fil­i­ated bike club – or­gan­ised a swap meet, a fam­ily day, to cel­e­brate the move of their head­quar­ters.

They didn’t ex­pect the Ban­di­dos and the Co­mancheros would show up…

Ten­sions be­tween Ban­di­dos and the Co­mancheros had been ratch­et­ing up and now war had been de­clared.

The Ban­di­dos ar­rived in the park­ing lot, armed to the teeth and fol­lowed by a van car­ry­ing ex­tra weapons. Both gangs had base­ball bats, knives, chains, iron bars, shot­guns and ri­fles.

The two gangs lined up on ei­ther side of the park­ing lot, bristling and pos­tur­ing across the as­phalt. Then Co­mancheros leader Jock Ross, bran­dish­ing a ma­chete, gave the or­ders to his men, ‘Kill ’em all!’
