New Satan’s Choice biker club considering shutting down after harsh Facebook criticism

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.

A group of Ontario bikers is having second thoughts about calling themselves the new Satan’s Choice Club after a harsh Facebook condemnation of their club by a senior Hells Angel.

The new club is taking a Facebook slamming by online friends of GTA Hells Angel Donny Petersen.
“Those who take a patch from a respected club, one that has history, courage, who has paid their dues, died, done time and all the rest . . . like what are you thinking?” Petersen himself wrote.
“You are pretenders,” Petersen wrote.

Petersen’s comments received resounding approval from his Facebook friends.
The old Satan’s Choice was on the road for four decades before it ceased to exist when it was absorbed by the Hells Angels in December 2000.

They were once the world’s second largest outlaw motorcycle club, known for their grinning devil patch and their proud Oshawa roots.
“We’re evaluating everything,” a spokesperson for the new club said on the condition of anonymity.

That ranges from changing the name to pulling the club off the road, the spokesperson said. He maintained that the Facebook criticism isn’t a factor.

The comments come a few days after the new club was ridiculed online by Petersen, a longtime GTA biker.
The Hells Angels had previously been silent about the emergence of the new club, which sprouted up in early July in the Ottawa area, where the Hells Angels shut down their clubhouse last fall.

Lorne Campbell, a longtime Satan’s Choice member, said he agreed with Petersen’s comments.
Campbell predicted that members of the new club run the risk of public humiliation and beatings if they didn’t immediately fold and stop wearing their grinning devil patches.
“They’ll be laughed at,” said Campbell, who was a member of the Satan’s Choice for 35 years. “They’ll be punched out. They’ll be jumped.”

Campbell stressed that he was not threatening the new Satan’s Choice members himself — just warning them that they can expect a rocky ride from other members of the outlaw biker world if they appear in public wearing the patches.
“It’s an insult,” Campbell said, adding that formation of the new Satan’s Choice is huge news in outlaw biker circles.

The old club was known for frequent clashes with the law, which landed some members in prison.
The new club planned to be law-abiding and participate in community-minded charity events, its spokesperson said.

It has kept a low profile this summer, Det. Sgt. Len Isnor of the OPP biker squad said.
“We’ve only had a few sightings of them,” Isnor said.

Isnor earlier said police would be watching to make sure there isn’t a threat to the general public. The new club is made up of Durham- and Ottawa-area bikers. They moved into the Ottawa area last month and have 48 members and two “strikers” — or prospective members — the spokesperson said.

Campbell said they can’t just put on patches modelled upon the old club. Members of the old Satan’s Choice fought — and sometimes died — because they cherished their patches and being a part of the club, he said.
“I’ve been involved in shootings, stabbings, beatings, the whole gamut,” Campbell said.

Campbell said he thinks the new club should hand in its patches to him and then apologize to the Hells Angels, whose members still include former Satan’s Choice members.
“These guys can’t be proud of who they are,” Campbell said.

    A little bit a respect goes a long ways
    But if you keep knocking on the Devils door he eventually will answer better to handover the patches man up and apologize

    I wish this would apply to bands too. So many out there cashing in on the name of a historic band years after the fact, with maybe one original member left in it. Shameful

  6. As a member of another 1% club, who had Family go to their grave as Member's of SC, I think they are doing nothing but disrespecting their memory.... I know that some Patched over, and that was their decision back in 2000.... Other's..... refused and chose to let the Club go out of respect to the years they served. I know Sledge is turning over in his grave now watching these Wanna Be's disrespect what is happening. And although the Crown Jewel(Patch) may say SC.... anyone who know's can see the changes. SC was a TRUE 1% don't just steal a Name and become 1. Rest in Peace Uncle Sledge 1%..... If I see 1 on the road I'll bury that disgraceful 'Patch' for you Brother.... TA2Z 1%...... GFOD !!!!!!

    Lol all the biker traitors that sold their old clubs out crying about a new club.Remember when bikers didn't cry on Facebook and used to use violence like real bikers? No loyalty just the need to look cool wearing a hells corporate angels patch.
    Donny Peterson was an old school biker until he SOLD OUT.

    Maybe the new Satan's choice members won't sell out and shit their pants like the old ones? Why do the sellout pussies get to tell anyone what club they're allowed to be in?

    The SC posers are contemptible and weak. I support Peterson's remarks (RIP) - from family of John Foote, SC Sgt.-at-Arms.
