Clandestine Hells Angels recordings played at civil forfeiture trial

(video (link is external)) --- Clandestine recordings of Hells Angels from a 2004 police investigation were played Tuesday at the civil forfeiture trial between the B.C. government and the biker gang.

Former police agent Micheal Plante recalled in B.C. Supreme Court on Tuesday some of the conversations he had with Hells Angels about their conflicts and crimes more than 14 years ago.
Plante, in his second day of testimony on behalf of the director of civil forfeiture, listened intently as tapes of some of his intercepted conversations from 2004 were played for Justice Barry Davies. In one of the tapes, East End Hells Angel Ronaldo Lising complained to Plante about other members of the biker gang, including his fellow chapter mate, John Punko. Lising referenced Punko’s conviction for threatening a federal prosecutor in a Vancouver food court several years earlier.

The conversation happened in a drive to Kelowna in 2004 when Plante was working on behalf of the RCMP to infiltrate the East End Hells Angels.

Several Hells Angels and associates were later charged and convicted as a result of Plante’s work for the police on the E-Pandora investigation. Plante, who now lives under a new identity, was paid $1 million for his undercover work and for testifying at a series of criminal trials.

He told Davies Monday that he was being paid another $80,000 to testify in the civil proceedings between the Hells Angels and the government agency.

The B.C. Director of Civil Forfeiture is trying to get Hells Angels clubhouses in East Vancouver, Nanaimo and Kelowna forfeited to the government as the instruments of criminal activity. The Hells Angels have counter-sued the government, claiming the Civil Forfeiture Act is unconstitutional. The case has been ongoing since November 2007 when police first raided the Nanaimo clubhouse.

The recordings played Tuesday highlighted the infighting and petty disputes between some of the Hells Angels. In one reference, Lising complained about two other Hells Angels that he was in the drug trade with at the time. Plante explained the references to Davies.
“He was saying he was doing all the work … but he was still paying those guys half the money,” Plante testified.

Lising also appeared to threaten an unidentified group of people, saying, “those guys are not welcome in this f–king province.”
“If we see them, we are going to f–king take care of them,” he said in the recording.

Lising said he liked “being around Hells Angels” and attacked other full-patch members who didn’t want to socialize much within the group.
“Why do you want to be a Hells Angel if you are not going to hang out with Hells Angels?” he told Plante.

Two lawyers for the Hells Angels, Joe Arvay and Greg DelBigio, both objected to Plante’s attempts to interpret what Lising was referencing in the 14-year-old conversation.
“When he is listening to his own voice, he can say this is what I meant,” Arvay said. “But actually interpreting the tape, I don’t know if he has any greater expertise than any of us.”

Davies said that “the tape is the evidence, not the interpretation and not the transcript.”
“Unfortunately I have been doing this business of listening to these kinds of tapes for a long, long time,” Davies said of the grainy recordings. “I am just very glad that they aren’t playing heavy metal in the background for a change in the car because that’s the usual circumstance.”

Plante will be on the stand all week before returning for cross-examination in February.

The Hells Angels sold cocaine out of the Dell Hotel

Kim Bolan is covering the trial about the seizure of the Hells Angels clubhouses in Nanaimo, East Vancouver and Kelowna. Michael Plante has taken the stand. Obviously Michael Plante's testimony has nothing to do with the Nanaimo clubhouse only the East Van clubhouse. Neil Hall wrote a book about his testimony in the EPandora trial called the Hells Angels vs the Million Dollar Rat. Plante was paid a million dollars to wire tap and testify against the East Vancouver Hells Angels. Now Kim Bolan is reporting that he is being paid $80,000 to testify in this trial.

Michael Plante's testimony primarily involved Randy Potts, John Punko and Ron Lising. Randy Potts was a complete Potsie. He was a full patch Hells Angel. Somebody beat him up in Surrey and stole his patch. The interesting part of the recent testimony was the claim that Michael Plante met Randy Potts when Randy was selling cociane out of the Dell Hotel in Surrey.

That is yet another confirmation the Hells Angels were actively involved in that part of the Surrey drug trade at that time. Ryan was a long time Surrey meth cook that worked for John Punko.

1 Pittsburgh cop involved in bar brawl with Pagans reassigned

One of four Pittsburgh police officers involved in a bar brawl last month with members of the Pagans motorcycle club has been reassigned while the investigation continues, officials said Wednesday.

Mayor Bill Peduto earlier Wednesday said multiple officers had been reassigned. A spokesman for the mayor later said only one officer had been given new duties.

It was not clear which of the four officers had been reassigned, only that he remained in the narcotics and vice unit. Police Chief Scott Schubert could not be reached.

Detectives David Honick, David Lincoln, Brian Burgunder and Brian Martin were working an undercover detail when they arrived at Kopy’s on South 12 th Street around 7:30 p.m. Oct. 11. Six members of the Pagans arrived about four hours later. An argument between several of the detectives and at least one Pagan escalated into a brawl at about 12:40 a.m. Oct. 12.

Four Pagans – Frank Deluca, Michael Zokaites, Erik Heitzenrater and Bruce Thomas – were arrested. District Attorney Stephen A. Zappala Jr. later withdrew the charges. Security footage captured the melee, including one officer punching Deluca 19 times in the head.

Deluca and Heitzenrater have filed lawsuits.
The Office of Municipal Investigations, the Citizens Police Review Board and the FBI are investigating the incident. Peduto said he hopes OMI can expedite the process.
“This is a situation that you don’t want to see occur,” Peduto said. “There are a lot of different questions, not only on the use of force and whether it was warranted, but also whether the officers cover was blown, and if it was why were they still there, the amount of alcohol involved, and the actions of the officers at the scene.”

Attorneys for the Pagans have alleged the undercover officers had consumed copious amounts of alcohol. Peduto said the department needs to change its policies for undercover work.
“With narcotics and vice you’re going to have situations where officers are involved in a situation where they don’t want to have their cover blown,” he said. “Obviously you’re not going to go to a bar and order chocolate milk, but at the same time there has to be accountability to be able to carry out your job.”

Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura defends Mongols Motorcycle Club in federal court in Orange County

His testimony was part of an ongoing federal racketeering trial

Former Minnesota governor and retired pro wrestler Jesse Ventura testified in a Santa Ana courtroom Wednesday about his longstanding membership in the Mongols Motorcycle Club, defending the organization against government allegations that it has operated as a criminal enterprise.Ventura, the highest profile member of the Mongols, took the stand as an expert witness in the midst of an ongoing federal racketeering trial in which prosecutors are attempting to gain control over the motorcycle club’s trademark name, a move that would allow law enforcement to bar the bikers from wearing the patches that adorn their vests.

“Are you a member of the Mongols Motorcycle Club,” Attorney Joseph Yanny, who is representing the Mongols, asked Ventura at the beginning of his testimony. “Yes I am,” replied Ventura, who later explained that he is currently an inactive member of the Mongols. “Are you member of a gang?”

Yanny asked. “No,” Ventura responded. “Gangs generally don’t broadcast who they are.”

In this Oct. 21, 2008 file photo a Mongols’ motorcycle gang member vest is displayed during a news conference in Los Angeles. (Photo by The Associated Press).

During the trial, prosecutors have accused Mongols’ leaders of encouraging and rewarding members who commit crimes, including assault, drug trafficking and murder. The Mongols’ attorney has denied the allegations, telling jurors that the organization isn’t responsible for crimes committed by individual members or attacks carried out in self-defense, and claiming that law enforcement has entrapped some members into committing crimes.

Ventura said he joined the Mongols in 1973, shortly after returning from his second tour in Vietnam.
The former governor testified that he was still an active duty member of the U.S. Navy when he became a “full-patch” member of the Mongols, recalling putting on his club vest as he left the base.
“It was a stepping stone I needed to make the transition from military life back to civilian life,”

Ventura said. “I owe them for being there for me when the rest of the world wasn’t.”
Ventura became an officer in the now-defunct South Bay San Diego County chapter of Mongols, but by late 1974 decided to step back from active membership in order to move back to Minnesota, where he had grown up. But Ventura said he has held onto his club vest and patches, including a “property of” patch he gave to his wife last year after more than 40 years of marriage.

Ventura denied that he had been ordered to take part in illegal activity as part of the Mongols.
“Yeah, there are some bad apples, that is true for any organization,” Ventura said. “But there are also a lot of damn good people in there. You can’t blame all for a few.”

Ventura acknowledged he was not an active member of the Mongols when the clubs problems with the Hells Angels motorcycle club began in the late 70s, a rivalry that has led to repeated bloodshed on both sides over the subsequent decades. He said the Mongols had no choice but to retaliate.
“I’d lose respect for them if they didn’t,” Ventura said.

During at times contentious questioning, a prosecutor challenged Ventura’s claim that he was unaware of any illegal activity. A clip of an interview between Ventura and podcaster Joe Rogan was played for the court, in which Ventura said the group’s president would tell him to leave their meetings if they were going to talk about illegal activity, since they knew Ventura was still in the military.

In the portion of the interview played in court, Ventura responded to Rogan asking him if it was weird to be in an organization involved in illegal activity by saying “No, because I thought at least I’m not going to go to jail.”

Ventura testified that he had no idea what the rest of the club’s leadership talked about during the meetings when he wasn’t present. At times, Ventura responded angrily or sarcastically to the prosecutors’ questions, at one point saying “are you kidding me” when asked if he knew what a SWAT team is.
“I believe this trial is ridiculous because of the First Amendment,” Ventura said.

During breaks in the hearing, a group of Mongols, dressed in suits and ties, gathered around to speak to Ventura in the hallway outside the courtroom.

The current federal trial stems from Operation Black Rain, a multi-agency effort involving law enforcement infiltrating the Mongols, which began in Montebello in the 1970s, and is now based in West Covina. An earlier racketeering case that targeted members of the Mongols rather than the organization itself resulted in 77 guilty pleas.

Among the incidents outlined by prosecutors during the trial have been the so-called 2002 River Run Riot in Laughlin, Nev. that left three Hells Angels and Mongols dead, a melee at the Morongo Casino in Cabazon near Palm Springs, and attacks, some fatal, allegedly carried out by Mongols in bars or restaurants in Hollywood, Pasadena, Merced, La Mirada, Wilmington and Riverside.

A high-ranking member of the Bandidos biker gang turned government witness was rewarded Monday with a relatively light sentence by a Houston federal court.

William Gerald “Big G” Ojemann, of Houston, was handed a two-year prison sentence for drug possession after dishing on the inner workings of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club and the crime bosses behind it.

During a lengthy racketeering trial earlier this year in San Antonio, Ojemann testified that he and other outlaw gang members carried out orders from former Bandidos President Jeffrey Fay Pike and his second-in-command, John Xavier Portillo. Those orders, according to Ojemann, included violent assaults and intimidation of rivals and fellow Bandidos.

Ojemann testified in April that Pike tasked him and another national member with finding and beating the Costa Rica chapter leader for not supporting his bid to cast off the Europe and Australia groups. The attack never happened because John “Galveston John” Lammins, president of a chapter in Costa Rica, was tipped off and was a no-show, he testified.

During Ojemann’s five years as a Bandidos gang member, from 2008 until 2013, he rose to the rank of national sergeant-at-arms. He testified that Pike eventually gave him the boot but allowed him to remain in “good standing.”

A majority of the documents detailing Ojemann’s sentencing were sealed last week. Court records filed Monday show federal Judge Vanessa D. Gilmore signed off on dismissing two more counts of drug possession and a single count of firearm possession for a drug trafficking crime against Ojemann. It was then recommended that Ojemann be incarcerated at the Bastrop prison or another federal facility close to Houston.

As part of his punishment, Ojemann is required to undergo a mental health treatment program.

Hellbent bikers provide security to Camp Fire evacuees at Chico church

CHICO — When members of the 823 Hellbent Motorcycle Club of Chico rode up to East Avenue Church just days after the Camp Fire began, they weren’t expecting what they saw. What they expected was a few dozen evacuees. What they saw was hundreds living in fear and chaos.

The bikers had come to drop off 50 of about 100 hygiene kits they’d organized and assembled. They found hundreds of people who’d fled to the church as an unofficial shelter. The men left all 100 of their kits with volunteers, and understanding that it would barely make a dent in the need, they found the church’s pastor, Ron Zimmer to ask, what can we do?

What was needed — desperately — was security, Zimmer explained. Those first days were hectic and unorganized and everything was up for grabs if you got there first. The church volunteers were trying to keep everyone in order but they could only do so much and the Chico Police Department could only come out so many times during the day.

“The first day we called the Chico Police Department three times,” Zimmer said, pausing hesitantly. “They haven’t come out on a call since.”

So he told the bikers: What the evacuees truly needed wasn’t tangible. It wasn’t clothes or money or a hug. They needed someone to keep an eye on their families, to protect their traumatized children, cast a watchful eye over what belongings they still had and to defend the elderly. Looting in the shelter was becoming a problem, with bad actors and transients helping themselves to goods and services meant for survivors. In those early hours, confusion reigned and it was a free-for-all.

So Hellbent 823 got to work. “We did a round and pointed out security concerns to each other,” said chapter President Matt “Straws” Strausbaugh. They “escorted” 60 people out of the shelter during the first hour, and probably 200 total since, he said.
“It wasn’t fire victims we were kicking out,” Strausbaugh quickly added. “The local transient population was trying to take advantage of the situation. They were abusive to the volunteers and abusive to each other.” But Strausbaugh said there was nothing violent about the way they asked people to leave — usually just the suggestion of it from a couple of the rough-looking bikers was enough to convince any troublemakers to take the hint and go.

These evacuees aren’t street savvy, he said, “Two weeks ago their lives weren’t going in a direction that involved living in tents on the street.”

So the first task for the Hellbent club was to remove anyone who was threatening victims, causing trouble or scaring the children. Then, Strausbaugh said, “We switched from eject mode to protect mode.”

But providing 24/7 security was too big a job for just the members of Hellbent 823. So “Straws” put the call out across the north state to other clubs, and soon, bikers from as far away as San Joaquin county began coming to help.

Craig Dunbar, with Hellbent 82 North, rattled off some of the dozen-plus clubs that have been volunteering their time and protection services. Their names are as colorful as their jackets; a few include the Jus Brothers from Oroville and Stockton, Sons of Hell out of Redding and the Street Outlaws from Red Bluff, Notorious from Chico, Henchmen and Hessians from San Joaquin, Curb Crawlers from Yuba City, Hells Angels from Sacramento and Dunbar’s fellow Hellbent brothers from Vallejo and Sacramento.

And he makes care to mention the Resurrection Motorcycle Club from Paradise, who nearly all lost their homes but have still been assisting with security.
“They’ve all lost their homes but they’re still out here doing this,” Dunbar said. “They have my respect.”

To the world at large, their leather club jackets mark them as something to be feared, but to the evacuees, it means safety and a watchful eye. On one, a sharp knife sits holstered on his jeans next to a walkie talkie clip. On others, tattoos and heavy skull rings rest around fingers that grip boxes and lug medical supplies around the shelter. “What we do best is to stand there and look ugly,” Strausbaugh joked. “We look hard and we are hard, and if pushed we can push back in a way that isn’t pleasant. But we also have a soft spot for the little guys.”

Between five to 12 men from the various clubs are on patrol at all times. When they heard complaints about cars being broken into, the men adjusted their patrols to include the parking lot and the dirt lot next door. They found used needles next to an area where children were playing and “gently escorted” those people out, Dunbar said.
“We saw a need and came and filled it,” Dunbar said simply. “Bike clubs are often involved in things like this but they’re not the type of guys to go and blow their own horn.”

Dunbar is an Army veteran of 10 years and he said he’s never seen anything like this in his life. “I’ve never felt alternately so helpful and so helpless by the moment,” he said quietly, watching the evacuees shuffle around the busy gymnasium near the back of the church property.

Later, as he sat down for a quick lunch between shifts, a young evacuee came bouncing up to give him a hug. His face lit up with a smile. She chatted with him for a moment and bounced away again. “When you watch a kid dig through a pile of stuffed toys just so they have something to snuggle with … if that doesn’t bring tears to your eyes, you are not a member of the human race,” Dunbar said.

These men live by a code, said Pastor Zimmer. “They have been terrific, outstanding, remarkable.” They focus on family, then work, then community. He said the club members have been a “calming influence” on the shelter during the last two weeks, and are doing the job quietly and efficiently. “They have been faithful in organizing themselves, training each other and setting up shifts,” Zimmer said. “They hold each other accountable.”

For Strausberg, it’s simply a matter of putting the club’s skills where it’s needed most. They’re well aware of their reputation and the way they look to the world, but as he puts it, “We’re like the wolves protecting the lambs. Sometimes it takes a wolf to protect people from the other wolves out there.”

Hells Angels bell ringers won't be allowed to volunteer again, Salvation Army says

Controversial “Aryan” patches worn by bell-ringing volunteers in Valparaiso do not match Salvation Army values, officials from the charity said Sunday.

Two days after images of bell ringers sporting controversial patches on leather jackets outside the Valparaiso Walmart went viral on social media, the Salvation Army released a statement on the matter. Lt. Christopher Nicolai, of The Salvation Army of Porter County, said in a written statement Sunday that the bell ringers in question, members of a local Hells Angels motorcycle club, violated the charitable organization's dress code and would not be allowed to do bell ringing in the future.

'Aryan' bell ringing controversy in Valpo goes viral
A Facebook post Friday of images from bell ringers at the Walmart in Valparaiso has gone viral. 
"Our commitment to nondiscrimination includes a dress code for bell ringers, requiring that they wear red Salvation Army aprons, and making it clear that no "symbol, marking or lettering that is viewed as discrimination" may be worn, Nicolai said in the statement. "Clearly, the bell ringers in question did not comply with this dress code. They will not be allowed to volunteer in the future. We are embarrassed that we were unable to prevent this incident, and apologize to all who were offended, as were we."

Images shared on Facebook and with The Times show men with leather jackets, one with a patch reading "Aryan" and another with a Confederate flag patch ringing the bell Friday for the Salvation Army.

The bell ringers in question were confirmed to be members of the Hells Angels Northwest Indiana Region Motorcycle Club.

They confirmed through a Facebook post Sunday that the Salvation Army had canceled another bell-ringing event the club had scheduled.
"Due to all the negative comments about our holiday charity work. The Salvation Army was forced to cancel our upcoming bell ringing date in December. We hope all that responded negatively, will donate their time ringing the bell for the Salvation Army," the post stated.

On Friday, the motorcycle club responded to the criticism and attempted to explain the controversial patches. 
"Our worldwide multinational, multiracial motorcycle club excepts motorcyclists from all walks of life," a representative for the motorcycle club said.

The representative said some members may wear "heritage-based" patches, such as Latinos wearing "LATINO," Japanese wearing "BUSHIDO" and whites wearing "ARYAN." He also said most members do not sport these types of patches.
"That's not what our clubs is about," the representative said. "However like all Americans, we love exercising our freedom. Sometimes freedom means you see and hear things you may not like. We accept that. The focus of today has nothing to do with freedom though. It has to do with charity and sacrificing for you community.
"I'd suggest to those making negative comments that maybe a little less time should be spent exercising your freedom of speech and a little more be spent to making a positive difference in our society."

The Hells Angels Northwest Indiana Region advertised their plans to bell ring on their Facebook page Friday morning. The post, including a graphic depicting the well-known red Salvation Army bucket and logos, shared that Hells Angels members would be collecting donations from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at the Valparaiso Walmart.

On Saturday, the Hells Angels posted again — this time including their own photos of members dressed in vests with patches and Santa hats next to the Salvation Army's "Doing the Most Good" sign and buckets. One appeared to be sporting the "Aryan" patch that attracted attention in the original Facebook post that went viral.
"Thank you Valparaiso for showing your support for our less fortunate neighbors," the Hells Angels NWI Region Facebook post read. "You helped us fill 6 buckets fulla cash! Big thanks to the Salvation Army for the opportunity to help our community."

The original Facebook post was shared more than 10,000 times before being taken down. 
The woman who made the original post on Facebook said the photos were taken by her mother. 
The poster, whose name is being withheld, said her mother notified a Walmart manager about the men and their vests. The manager asked the men to remove the vests, and they refused.

The poster said she received several threats regarding her post. 
“People thought I was going after the Hells Angels," the poster told The Times. "No, the Hells Angels does a lot of good and commendable things. … I have friends that are bikers, and I love them dearly. It’s not that I have anything against bikers.”

Jarrod Bacon released and nobody cares



I hesitate to comment on this since as I previously said, it is a nonissue, yet since the media keeps milking it I will comment on it. CBC is reporting that "Details about the June 14 release of pathetic B.C. gangster wannabe Jarrod Bacon have just been sent to media because of an unexplained technical glitch, according to the Parole Board of Canada."

Who? Jarrod. He's the third little piggy. Not the brain dead ork that executed the Surrey Six for the red and white and not his dead preppy brother Jonathon who was pals with Larry Amero. He's the other preppy brother with the chip on his shoulder.

As we previously reported he was released early by mistake due to a typo. In 2012 he was sentenced to 12 years in prison for conspiracy to import cocaine. Statutory release means he gets out after two thirds of his sentence. That would be nine years not seven and the typo saw him released early by mistake. When he breached probation by taking his GF to a strip club (real classy) and was hanging out with a Hells Angels associate that breach got him back in prison for breach of probation. Since he and his brothers were selling drugs for the Hells Angels one of his parole conditions was not to have any association with members of the club.

There was no technical glitch. The BC Gang Task force is COMPROMISED. They withheld his release to protect his safety just like the are protecting the Cub pack and now the Softside. Two thirds of a 12 year sentence is 9 years. He was sentenced to 12 years in 2012. That means his statutory release shouldn't be until 2021. The seven year typo would have meant 2019. The fact that he is out now is proof the judicial system is completely corrupt.

The thing is nobody cares about Jarrod. Jamie and Jonathan are the ones everyone had beef with. Jarrod is just a preppy nonissue with a chip on his shoulder. What he does next and how he behaves will determine how many days he has left to live.

Life is all about choices and consequences. We are free to choose but we are not free to avoid the consequences of our decisions. Choose wisely or this little piggy will go all the way home to his grave just like his dead preppy brother Jonathan. He and his hommies will be lying in chalk.

Cops Funniest Wildest Moments Part 1 (HD)


How to Crush an Outlaw Biker Club: Seize Its … Logo?







For many years, federal law enforcement authorities have been trying to take down the Mongols, a biker group they consider one of the most dangerous criminal enterprises in the country. They have infiltrated it with undercover agents. They have hammered members with charges ranging from drug dealing to money laundering to murder. They have conducted mass arrests that resulted in dozens of guilty pleas, including one by a past president.

But after a decade of trying, they have failed to deliver what they view as the coup de grâce: seizing control of the Mongols’ trademarked logo, a drawing of a brawny Genghis Khan-like figure sporting a queue and sunglasses, riding a chopper while brandishing a sword. Now, in a racketeering trial underway in Orange County, Calif., federal prosecutors believe they have their best chance yet to take the Mongols’ intellectual property, using a novel approach to asset forfeiture law, which allows the seizure of goods used in the commission of crimes.

Prosecutors argue that taking the logo will deprive the group of its “unifying symbol” — the banner under which prosecutors say the group marauds. If federal prosecutors have their way, one of them boasted at an earlier point in the court battle, the police could stop any Mongol and “literally take the jacket right off his back.”

But legal experts question the prosecutors’ grasp of intellectual property law. “Trademark rights are not tangible personal property like a jacket. They are intangible rights,” said Evan Gourvitz, an intellectual property lawyer with the law firm Ropes & Gray in New York. “But prosecutors are treating a trademark like a jacket.”

The Mongols are equally mystified. The logo — also called a patch — is emblazoned on the vests, T-shirts and motorcycles of hundreds of members.

“Lots of brothers have tattoos of the marks on their necks and heads and everywhere,” David Santillan, the national president of the club, said. “How do you regulate that?”

For bikers, the patch is key to belonging and the optics of appearing tough, and members can spend months or even years proving themselves before they earn the right to wear it.

“The patch is like the American flag to these guys and speaks to the identity of the club, the individual and the culture,” said William Dulaney, a retired associate professor who is an expert on motorcycle groups. “Some clubs have the rule that if the colors even touch the ground, they have to be destroyed.”

The Mongols’ marks, like those of other biker groups, are registered with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. Clubs have aggressively protected their patches from unauthorized use.

The Hells Angels have gone after large corporations including Toys “R” Us, the Alexander McQueen fashion line, Amazon, Saks, and Walt Disney, accusing them of infringement on its death’s head logo — a skull in a winged helmet — and other club symbols.

They have usually been successful, reaching settlements that require defendants to cease using the trademarks and to recall and destroy merchandise, among other concessions.

The Mongols have had their share of run-ins with the law. The group was founded in Montebello, Calif., in 1969 and has about 1,000 members in the United States, most of whom are Hispanic. About half of the club’s membership is in California, though Mr. Santillan said 11 new chapters were recently established in Texas.

In 2012 Christopher Ablett, a suspected member of the Modesto, Calif., chapter, was sentenced to life in prison for the 2008 murder of the president of the San Francisco chapter of the Hells Angels, Mark Guardado. In 2014 David Martinez, a Mongols member in San Gabriel, Calif., was charged with murder in the shooting death of a Pomona police officer.



“This is a case of guilt by association, an attempt to put the liability on all members,” said Joseph A. Yanny, the Mongols’ lead lawyer. “This is one of the most absurd cases I have seen the government pursue.”

But prosecutors argue that the patch is the flag under which Mongols carry out unlawful acts and intimidate the public.
“The government will show that the marks served as unifying symbols of an enterprise dedicated to intimidating and terrorizing everyone who is not a member,” they wrote in a court filing, “and assaulting and killing those who have sworn their loyalty to other outlaw motorcycle gangs.”

A spokesman for the United States attorney’s office for the Central District of California said he could not comment on the case.

The quest to gain control of the Mongols’ colors began in 2008, when the tactic was suggested by members of the prosecution team at the United States attorney’s office, said Thomas P. O’Brien, who led the office at the time. “We were looking for a way to have real impact and we knew this was going to be a test case,” he said.

The pursuit of the patch was part of a criminal indictment against 79 Mongols that ultimately resulted in 77 guilty pleas. Over the years, the trademark part of the case has been punctuated by conflicting interpretations of intellectual property law, judges overruling their own orders and confusion over who even owns the rights to the logo.
“Justice is often a long and bumpy road and this case has been particularly long and bumpy,” Mr. O’Brien acknowledged.

During an early stretch of the case, Judge Florence-Marie Cooper of Federal District Court in Los Angeles granted a sweeping order that authorized the seizure of “products, clothing, vehicles, motorcycles, books, posters, merchandise, stationery, or other materials bearing the Mongols trademark” from members, their relatives and any associates.

In response, some members defiantly flaunted the marks while others wore alternative Mongols logos. After further litigation, Judge Cooper would then rule that the Mongols’ marks were not subject to confiscation. In 2009, Ramon Rivera, a Mongols member who had not been charged with a crime, filed a lawsuit with the help of the American Civil Liberties Union.

Mr. Rivera argued that his First Amendment and due process rights had been violated by the order, and asked that law enforcement authorities be blocked from confiscating his property. He ultimately prevailed and was awarded $252,466 in lawyers’ fees.

In 2010, another federal judge, Otis Wright, preliminarily forfeited the logo to the government after the lead defendant and former club president, Ruben Cavazos, reached a plea deal with prosecutors.

But the Mongols argued that the club, not Mr. Cavazos, owned the rights to the images. Judge Wright sided with the Mongols, “regrettably” concluding that the marks were not forfeitable since they belonged to the organization.

In a somewhat similar case in Michigan, prosecutors withdrew their bid for the Devils Diciples trademark after six members were convicted at trial for firearms offenses, drug trafficking, illegal gambling and other crimes. The individual who owned the trademark, prosecutors had discovered, was not among the defendants.

In a 2016 letter to one of the prosecutors, Fritz Clapp, a lawyer for the Diciples, said that if the government gained ownership of the trademark, it would face a quandary because owners must periodically demonstrate that the mark is still in active use for the purpose registered.
“Unless the government were to use the collective membership mark to operate a motorcycle club, then it could not satisfy the requirement,” Mr. Clapp wrote. “Trademarks, unlike copyrights and patents, have no enduring value apart from their use.”

But in Los Angeles, prosecutors did not give up. In 2013, they came back with a new indictment, this time against Mongol Nation, for many of the same racketeering offenses as were in the 2008 indictments, plus some newer ones. Again, they asked for the forfeiture of the trademarks. The trial is expected to continue for several more weeks.

The Mongols are watching closely, saying they know theirs is a test case.
“They take our patch,” Mr. Santillan, the president, said. “And then they take all the clubs’ patches.”

My Thoughts on the Mongols MC Federal Court Trial.



If the government wins this case against the Mongols Motorcycle Club, they have the legal justification to confiscate all of their property, this includes their trademark logo vests or cuts.

However, this does not mean they will then come after your cut. This is not going to turn into something like that. You would have to be convicted and shown to be a criminal organization in order for the government to legally take your cut. This would not be a green light for the government to go around and take every motorcycle clubs cut, the people that are putting this out there are ignorant of the law.

Brother of Honduran president detained in Miami for conspiring to import cocaine

The Miami Herald is reporting that "Less than a year after a convicted drug lord testified that he had met with the Honduran president’s brother to discuss the repayment of debt related to a money-laundering operation, Juan Antonio “Tony” Hernandez was detained by federal agents in Miami on drug and weapons charges. Hernandez, the brother of President Juan Orlando Hernandez, was detained Friday for “conspiring to import cocaine into the United States, and related weapons charges,” said James Margolin, the chief public information office for the U.S. attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, in a statement to the Miami Herald. Margolin said Hernandez was expected to appear in federal court in Miami on Monday."

Like I said, the election fraud in Honduras which Donald Trump supported, wasn't to stop drug trafficking it was to promote it. Honduras has been a central hub in the CIA's drug trafficking network since Iran Contra. Hilary Clinton supported the CIA coup in 2009 and Donald Trump supported the CIA election fraud in 2017. Controlled opposition. Nothing has changed.

Rappler.com is reporting that "The former head of the Los Cachiros cartel Devis Leonel Rivera Maradiaga had testified to a court in New York in 2017 that he had bribed the president's brother when he was a lawmaker, in exchange for his assistance to the traffickers. Maradiaga had also testified against Fabio Lobo, son of former Honduran President Porfirio Lobo, who was sentenced to 24 years in prison for collaborating with the Los Cachiros cartel. In his testimony, he had explained how the Los Cachiros had set up an intermediary company which it used to conduct business with the government, and which served to launder its trafficking profits."

It's OK President Juan Orlando Hernandez's brother Juan Antonio Hernandez will get a pardon after he's convicted and then they'll give him a job with Fox News along side Oliver North.

Bandidos ride into town for their very own Christmas party

Bandidos bikies from across the country have converged on Melbourne for the club's national run. A club insider claimed up to 500 bikes will roar through the city as part of the annual run, which left Bendigo on Friday morning for an all weekend party in Melbourne's south-East.

One associate described the run as the club's very own Christmas party.
"This is what we do. It's the brotherhood," he said.

The run, which involves the club's major figureheads including president Jason Addison, is being closely monitored by police.

"[We] will take swift action to detect and disrupt any outlaw motorcycle gang (OMCGs) members who commit crimes, road safety or public order offences," a Victoria police spokeswoman said.
"We are always gathering intelligence with regards to the activities of persons engaged in criminal activity, including those persons who may also be associated with OMCGs.
"Our monitoring of OMCGs permits us to respond in an appropriate fashion if and when any risk of violence is anticipated.

The club, which was formed in the US, established itself in Australia in 1983 after a group split from another club, the Comancheros.

That split lead to the notorious Milperra massacre, where the two clubs clashed in a shootout that left seven people dead, including a 14-year-old girl, the Bandidos' vice-president, the Comancheros' Vice-President and Sergeant-At-Arms.

While a Bandidos associate said the wider community has a misconception that the club is made up of criminals, authorities say they are a well-organised gang that causes harm across the country.

Local motorcycle clubs collect more than 20K pounds of food for homeless shelter

Just in time for the holidays, a local homeless shelter has received a huge donation. The Findlay City Mission is the only homeless shelter in Hancock County. They serve, on average, 40-50 lunches and 60-80 dinners daily.

Going into the holiday season, the local American Outlaw motorcycle club chapter decided to help the mission out with a food drive.
With only 6 weeks notice to spread the word and setup a concert, they ended up collecting just short of 21,000 pounds of food.

“It looked half bare. So, this food drive is actually going to get us through the rest of the season where we won’t need too much more food in,” said Miriam Ibarra, food services director at Findlay City Mission.
Event organizers learned of the need after touring the city Mission a few months ago. Even with relatively short notice, they knew their biker community would come through.
“We had people from Detroit down, we had people from Lima up, we had people from down in the Kenton area, down in Hardin county came up,” said Ed Scheeter with A.B.A.T.E. of Ohio.
 
“We live here, and that was my call to the guys. This is our community, and if they’re going to do stuff for our community, let’s go and do it big,” said Ed Smith from the local Barbarians MC.

Along with the large donation, the Findlay City Mission has partnered with a local restaurant who will be catering their entire Thanksgiving Day dinner on Thursday night.

Over 40 raids against biker gang Caloh Wagoh; leaders arrested

The police arrested two leaders of Caloh Wagoh on Wednesday morning and are currently raiding over 40 locations linked to the outlaw motorcycle gang. The two leaders, men aged 48 and 70, were arrested in Mijdrecht and Leiden. They're in custody for questioning, the police said in a statement.

The raids are being done by police units Den Haag, Midden Nederland, Rotterdam, Amsterdam and Oost Nederland. SWAT teams were deployed in various locations. This major police action, involving over 800 police officers, forms part of a larger investigation into undermining crime.

The two gang leaders are suspected of participating in a criminal organization, according to the police. They are in restricted custody, which means they are only allowed contact with their lawyers.

The raids are still in progress, so the police can not yet say anything about what was found.
"We think that the club is heavily involved in crime", Paul van Musscher, head of the police in The Hague, said to NOS. "Our goal today is to collect evidence."

Caloh Wagoh was recently linked to the in Spijkenisse in September last year, as well as an attack on the building housing in June this year.

Hells Angel murdered in Maple Ridge - Update

Update: Kim Bolan is confirming rumors that the victim in Maple Ridge was a full patch Hells Angel named Chad Wilson aka Huey as in Huey, Dewey, and Louie from the Hardside chapter which formed off of Haney. The Hardside chapter are trying to run the drug trade in Surrey since the Surrey Girls are completely useless. Sounds like the Duck Dynasty decoy will be next. There ain't enough Viagra on the planet to make those wet noodles hard.

Chad just about lost his patch in the States for testifying in Wyoming court. That's why he was sent to Canada. I guess they don't just send their draft dodgers here, they send their po po hoes here too. Chad's friends were awfully quick to cooperate with the police. That's the way the red and white roll in BC. As soon as people start bustin caps they be running to the police for help faster than 50 Cent. Evidently there's going to be a large police presence at the funeral. They're joining the procession with the mourners. Just don't let Rainbow Ricky lead that pride parade.

Professional Courtesy
Sorry boys and girls but this is how it's supposed to be done. No public shooting. They took the guy aside, shot him dead then dumped him in the other guys turf saying here's your boy. No civilians hit or traumatized, no indignities to a human body, just straight up business.

No wonder his friends called the police as soon as he went missing. Chad Wilson was no Bob Green. He was simply a floater. Just another short fro ho pimping for the Po Po. This is what happens when the soft side comes to Surrey. Let is be known that Surrey is Free.



The murder was obviously related to expanding the drug trade into new markets. Chad got off lucky in Spain. This time he wasn't so lucky. Buyer Beware. Pride cometh before the fall.
