Mongols Motorcycle Club considering social media ban for members

ONE of the nation’s biggest outlaw bikie clubs is considering banning members from ­social media as police intensify scrutiny on the gangs.

The Mongols MC hierarchy is understood to be upset with some members’ Facebook and Instagram use, promoting their lifestyle on public pages.

And the Herald Sun has been told some figures within other big clubs — Bandidos, Rebels and Comancheros — are tired of the “heat’’ members are getting from the law.

While the investigation into the ambush shooting of Comancheros office bearer Robert Morando in Narre Warren last month continues, the incident is not believed to be linked to club rivalries.

There is also mystery around why Mongol sergeant-at-arms Shane Middle­ton has been shot twice in a year.

It comes as Middleton, a club enforcer, and national sergeant-at-arms Shane Bowden, were both placed in custody this week.
