Accused Rebel given bail has 'F the police' clothing line

THE man accused of being a Rebels bikie and shooting up a rival tattoo parlour has a clothing label called FTP - F… the Police.

Lorne James Campbell's FTP Facebook site provides an insight into his beliefs, with comments such as "You Snitch, You Die. Simple.''

Many of his posts end with OMERTA for LIFE or OMERTA is not a crime.

Omerta espouses a 'code of silence' for those involved in certain activities or groups.

Campbell was released on bail this week by a magistrate after she determined that police had failed to produce enough evidence to convince her he was a bikie.

This was despite him allegedly having the keys to the Rebels clubhouse on him and being seen drinking with Rebels members.

The case has sparked anger from Premier Campbell Newman, who today told the Courier-Mail it was time 'legal insiders' got on board with Queensland's crackdown on outlaw motorcycle gangs.

Queensland Police, in a short statement yesterday, said they had sent the case to the Director of Public Prosecutions to determine whether an appeal will be lodged.

According to News Ltd reports, Campbell lives in a million-dollar hinterland mansion, which is claimed to have been funded out of his clothing line and other legitimate businesses.

On his Facebook site he promises FTP t-shirts for people who have tattoos at support parlours.

Campbell himself has a large FTP tattoo on his forehead and a smaller one on his right cheek.

He has another one which reads I4NI  or an Eye for an Eye.

On the page, he hits back at comments where people have been offended by his FTP range - and the use of women to promote a 'charity' event.

"This may come as a shock to you, but when I started FTP Clothing I sure as F... was not out to make friends,'' he wrote.

"Especially with you know who.

"I was out to supply people with the same beliefs as me with some top quality clothing and in return make some money to provide a good life for my family.

"People buy it because they f...... want to,'' the post reads.

In earlier posts, the clothing  features Feel the Power and Feel the Pain slogans.

The FTP site includes advice to people dealing with police to 'know their rights'. It says to record interactions and to not answer any questions.

"In some cities police officers were required to wear a camera in order to document their interactions with civilians. In these areas, public complaints against officers dropped by 88%,'' another post says.

The Facebook site also makes pretty clear his view on child molesters, saying "kill them all''.
