What's the real story about Gold Coast bikie gangs?

I can't even tell you how many officers are working for Taskforce Hydra.
But I can tell you that the man in charge wants you to be absolutely sure that there is no bikie war simmering away here on the Gold Coast.
We're trying to separate fact from fiction when it comes to the bikie gangs here.
I had the chance to sit down for a rare face to face interview with the head of Taskforce Hydra, Detective Inspector Gary Watts.
He had his reasons for agreeing to the interview and I had my questions, some of which he answered. (click to original article for interview)
