Bandidos bikies charged over assaults at Melbourne strip club | Adelaide Now

Thursday, 28 October 2010

Bandidos bikies charged over assaults at Melbourne strip club Adelaide Now: "35-year-old from Point Cook, a 37-year-old from Taylors Lakes and a 39-year-old Melbourne man reported to police yesterday after the incident was widely publicised.

They face a string of charges, including affray and five counts each of intentionally causing injury, recklessly causing injury, unlawful assault, assault in company and assault with a weapon.

Police said they knew who the men were due to their links to the Bandidos bikie gang after looking at CCTV footage from the venue.

The men allegedly entered the Centrefold club in King St sometime after 6am (AEDT) on Sunday but the group was asked to leave as the bar was closing.

A fight broke out and several of the employees were assaulted."

Notorious biker Maurice "Mom" Boucher was wounded - possibly with a knife - in a prison scuffle

Sunday, 24 October 2010

Notorious biker Maurice "Mom" Boucher was wounded - possibly with a knife - in a prison scuffle Saturday.
The scuffle broke out at about 2:30 p.m. during the prisoner's walking hour in an outer courtyard of the federal Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines facility, where Boucher is held in a special unit.
Corrections Canada confirmed Saturday night that four inmmates were involved.
In a press release, Corrections Canada said that the two "abused" inmates have been treated and the two assailants are currently in isolation. Corrections Canada has not named the inmates involved.
QMI Agency has learned that former Hells Angel Boucher was one of the injured inmates. He was not seriously injured in the brawl and his life is not in danger.
Witnesses told TVA News that the guards in a watchtower saw the attack and were able to alert their colleagues on the ground, who moved quickly to separate the inmates.
One witness said it's possible that Boucher would have been in very bad shape after the scuffle if the guards hadn't intervened.
The Correctional Service of Canada is investigating the scuffle.
Quebec provincial police, the Surete du Quebec, were also notified.
Claude Ross, spokesman for the force, confirmed that there were two victims in the scuffle and that two suspects have been arrested.
"They were found by the investigators in the West region," he said in French, adding that neither of the injured agreed to be transported to hospital for treatment.
"The fact that they refused to be taken to the hospital suggests that their injuries were not too serious," he said.
Boucher, former boss of elite Hells Angels chapter the Nomads, is serving a life sentence for orchestrating the killing of two prison guards.
Boucher is being held in the special handling unit of the federal Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines penitentiary near Montreal. It's not the first time Boucher was attacked - he was the victim of a jailhouse ambush when he was assaulted with a homemade knife in 2002.

'Luminati Brotherhood Crew,' and Askin says the group has 'an affiliation with the Hell's Angels.'"

Friday, 22 October 2010

CTV Southwestern Ontario - Police display seized drugs, property - CTV News: "Waterloo Regional Police showed off the drugs, weapons and cash seized after an organized crime bust Wednesday morning.
Supt. Gary Askin says 'Like other criminal organizations we found them to be involved in the sale, production and even in the theft of illicit narcotics.'
Nineteen people have been arrested and about 140 charges laid over the course of the investigation, which was connected to an organized crime group known as the ‘Luminati.'
Rings engraved with ‘Luminati' were also among the property that was seized. However, not all of those arrested were connected to the group.
Police were made aware of the crime group in 2008, when they were known as the 'Luminati Brotherhood Crew,' and Askin says the group has 'an affiliation with the Hell's Angels.'"

Jury chosen at Outlaws trial in Richmond Richmond Times-Dispatch: "two-week trial of four Outlaws motorcycle gang members on federal racketeering conspiracy and other charges got under way yesterday with the government cautioning jurors they will not have an easy job.

It's usually mandatory that federal inmates receive statutory release, but the National Parole Board has agreed with a recommendation from corrections officials that Labossiere is likely to commit a violent crime if he's released."

fight broke out between them and a group decked out in Hells Angels and Throttle Lockers colours.

Kelowna Capital News - Off duty cops to face charges for Kelowna brawl: "MacDonald hails from Prince Edward Island and Samotej is from Alberta. They were visiting Kelowna Aug. 7, 2009, when a fight broke out between them and a group decked out in Hells Angels and Throttle Lockers colours.
While the details are scant, it was reported at the time that the conflict began when one of the officers 'shoulder bumped' the victim inside Cheetah's and ensuing events led to a larger conflict outside the club.
That melee involved the officers’ group of seven friends and 15 to 20 bikers wearing gang colours.

Outlaws biker-gang members go on trial Wednesday | Richmond Times-Dispatch

Tuesday, 19 October 2010

Outlaws biker-gang members go on trial Wednesday Richmond Times-Dispatch: "patch sewn on some of the denim and leather vests worn by members of the Outlaws motorcycle club warns 'Snitches Are A Dying Breed.'
Last week, Mark 'Snuff' Steven Fiel, president of the club's Manassas and Shenandoah Valley chapter, became the 14th current or former member of the Outlaws and an affiliated gang to sign a plea deal after a sweeping federal indictment last June.
Fiel will forfeit his 2005 Harley-Davidson, but his agreement does not require him to rat on other gang members. Plea deals often call for cooperation with authorities, although the lack of such a provision does not bar someone from snitching.
The trial of five Outlaws, including the national president, starts Wednesday in federal court in Richmond. An additional six bikers will be tried starting Dec. 1.
More than two dozen members of the Outlaws and Pagans motorcycle clubs were charged in the indictment that alleged the Outlaws moved into Virginia in 2006 when it opened the Manassas chapter, with plans to expand in the state and battle with the Hells Angels in the Richmond area.
In addition to Virginia, Outlaws were arrested in June in Maine, Montana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Wisconsin.
One of those indicted will not be tried -- Thomas 'Tomcat' Mayne, 59, was shot to death June 15 in Maine when authorities tried to arrest him the day the charges were made public."

Compo for bikie bashing victim Courier Mail: "GOLD Coast man who had his ears cut off in a bikie revenge attack has been awarded more than $32,000 in criminal compensation. But the victim, David John Holmes, stands to gain an even bigger payout as the money awarded today was for other injuries sustained in the grisly assault.

He was taken into the Currumbin Valley where he was bashed, had his ears sliced off and left for dead.
The self-confessed ear-cutter, Aaron Drew Scheers, was sentenced to 16 years' jail for the brutal crime earlier this year.
Fellow bikies Scott Anthony Holland and Benjamin James Denhen were jailed for four years and three years respectively for their roles."

Hells Angel Lawyer Argues Prisoner’s Meals Fail To Meet Basic Nutrition Standards - CityNews

Lawyer Argues Prisoner’s Meals Fail To Meet Basic Nutrition Standards - CityNews: "Food provided for Toronto’s prisoners is coming under fire.

Craig Bottomley, a lawyer representing the alleged president of the Toronto chapter of the Hells Angels, is filing a lawsuit to challenge the standard of the meals.

He is asking a judge to order his client, John Neal, be provided with more nutritious food to eat and drink when his October 22. trial.

Bottomley argues that it’s impossible for his client to focus on defending himself if he’s hungry.

The Toronto Police Service is responsible for prisoner’s meals. Each meal costs $1.19.

A typical lunch meal consists of a sandwich, often cheese and a glass of water mixed with flavour crystals. Vegetarians are often served a piece of lettuce and tomato on a hamburger bun.

Here's a look at what other prisoners around North America eat:

Regina: A cheeseburger, French fries or a hash brown patty and a soft drink.

Iron Horsemen Retaliation For Biker Gang Brawls - :: Cincinnati news story :: LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV in Cincinnati

Police Fear Retaliation For Biker Gang Brawls - :: Cincinnati news story :: LOCAL 12 WKRC-TV in Cincinnati: "worried call from a woman is what started the fight at the Lake Bar Saturday evening. The woman who we're not naming is the girlfriend of a biker who used to be an Iron Horseman. He was reportedly thrown out of the club a couple of years ago and joined the Detroit Highwaymen. That's something you just don't do in the world of outlaw motorcycle gangs.

Investigators tell me the woman went into Frankie and Jaimies, also known as the Lake Bar, saw at least one Iron Horsemen there, and called her boyfriend, saying she wasn't being allowed to leave the club. At the time the club was filled with people, and it's not believed she was really at risk. The biker boyfriend called a group of Highwaymen pals and nine bikers walked into the bar to 'rescue' the woman.

The bar owner says the attack was caught on tape. The ensuing fight involving a ball bat and knives, landed four Highwaymen in the hospital and nine behind bars. Included in that list is the local chapter president of the Detroit Highwaymen, Joe Earls. Earls has a day job and is from Delhi, and has only a minor criminal history. At the time of his arrest prosecutors say Earls had a handgun with him as did two other bikers, two of them including Earls have concealed carry permits. Earls and his biker brothers were ordered held on $100,00 bonds."

Biker gang arrested in Idaho drug probe - Sirens & Gavels - Spokesman.com - Oct. 12, 2010

Biker gang arrested in Idaho drug probe - Sirens & Gavels - Spokesman.com - Oct. 12, 2010: "A yearlong drug investigation in Bonner County has led to the arrests of members of a local motorcycle gang and could result in the seizure of a houseboat and closure of a restaurant near Sandpoint’s landmark Long Bridge.
More than 20 people, including five members of the biker gang, face charges in what investigators describe as an unprecedented case that began with an undercover drug probe last fall and led to infiltration of the Hermanos motorcycle gang, a chapter of the international Bandidos outlaw biker gang.
Undercover detectives developed relationships with area drug dealers to build credibility with the bikers. They learned of extensive criminal activity involving the Bandidos. Bonner County sheriff’s Sgt. Marty Ryan called the Hermanos the “foot soldiers” for a larger operation.
A grand jury began issuing indictments in August. Arrests began last week with a series of raids in the Sandpoint and Ponderay areas.
Bryan M. Lukezich, president of the Hermanos local chapter, faces a felony charge of recruiting gang members."

OUTLAW motorcycle gangs are bad news

"OUTLAW motorcycle gangs are bad news - violent people whose history shows their links to crime such as murder, illegal firearms, illicit drugs, prostitution, extortion, assault, arson, theft, vehicle rebirthing, fraud and corruption. They scare people. They are also highly visible targets for politicians wanting to be 'tough on crime'.
In South Australia, then Opposition leader Mike Rann pledged to bulldoze bikie fortresses as part of a macho law-and-order campaign by Labor in the lead-up to the 2002 election.
'We are not just dealing with meatheads on motorbikes, we are dealing with basically the foot soldiers of organised crime,' Rann said at the time.
Three election victories later, not a single fortress has been demolished under Rann's leadership. At least eight major complexes still stand in Adelaide, housing gangs such as the Hells Angels, Descendants, Finks, Gypsy Jokers and Rebels. And there are no plans to bulldoze any."

Europe's biker gangs set on a collision course with the police - Europe, World - The Independent: "thousands of leather-clad bikers from across the Balkans gathered in the Croatian town of Slavonski Brod for a bash celebrating the unbridled joy that comes from tearing up the open road on a powerful two-wheeled hog.
The annual Moto Klub Brod motorijada (motor picnic) has become one of the largest gatherings for outlaw motorcycle gangs in the Balkans, taking place on the border of Bosnia-Herzegovina in a Croatian town that was significantly damaged during the war.
Despite the ongoing tensions in the Balkans – and the fact that many bikers are hardened veterans of the successive wars that tore this region apart in the 1990s – the Moto Klub Brod normally passes off without incident. But this year, on the last night of the seven-day festival, a large brawl broke out between a group of Hells Angels and a rival gang from Bosnia known as the 'Grevinis'."

No Vic haven for bikie gangs, says govt: "Victorian police and the government say the state is not becoming a safe haven for motorcycle gangs, dismissing opposition calls for bikie gangs to be outlawed.
The state government has promised to introduce laws, if it is re-elected at next month's election, that would allow police to tear down fortifications at the club houses of outlaw bikie gangs and other illicit enterprises.

Hells Angels gathering on tap for summer? - Fosters

Friday, 8 October 2010

Hells Angels gathering on tap for summer? - Fosters: "We knew it was a possibility,' said Moyer, adding that law enforcement agencies, which consider the Hells Angels to be an outlaw motorcycle gang (OMG), have been aware for several months that Laconia was one of several sites being eyed for the World Run, which is expected to draw upward of 1,000 attendees. Moyer said he anticipated a quiet World Run, just like in 2003 when the event took place over a period of four days.

Moyer and other law enforcement officials are not reacting with alarm, but said that police will be prepared to deal with any trouble should it occur.

Ed Shaughnessy, a senior member of the Hells Angels' NH Nomads chapter, was unavailable for comment Wednesday, but City Manager Eileen Cabanel said she had recently spoken with him about the World Run and the possibility of the Hells Angels using some municipal property for motorcycle parking.

Each year, according to authorities, the World Run brings together two representatives from every Hells Angels chapter for what is described as a business meeting.

In 2003, Attorney P. Scott Bratton, who periodically has represented the Hells Angels' NH Nomads chapter, characterized the World Run eight years ago as something that 'should be beneficial to the local economy and there should be no need for alarm in the community.'"

Bandidos, Hells Angels and the Outlaws have opened more than 120 chapters which makes a total number of more than 425 chapters in Europe

Rapid expansion of Outlaw Motorcycle Club Gangs in Europe Frontier India World Affairs - International News and Current Affairs: "Europe is the continent with the highest increase in new Outlaw Motorcycle Club Gang (OMCG’s) chapters. During the last five years Bandidos, Hells Angels and the Outlaws have opened more than 120 chapters which makes a total number of more than 425 chapters in Europe. The number of chapters for these three large groups in the United States and Canada are around 300.
Europol is following the developments of the OMCG’s as part of its responsibility to monitor the threat from organised crime and terrorism in Europe. The OMCG’s are identified as a national threat and as a national policing priority in several EU countries. Because of a recent significant expansion of the presence of the Hells Angels into South-East Europe, Europol and the Croatian Ministry of Interior this week co-organised a seminar for law enforcement specialists in Dubrovnik. The seminar was financed by the European Commission’s TAIEX programme and representatives from Albania, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Croatia, Montenegro, the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, the Republic of Serbia and Turkey received presentations from expert speakers from Europol, Luxemburg, Norway and Spain. The aim of the seminar was to raise a national and regional awareness about the character of the OMCG’s in South-East Europe and Turkey.
The specialist speakers warned against taking it at face value when the members of the OMCG’s say that they are not involved in crime and only interested in riding their motorbikes, since crime and violence have for decades been an inherent part of their lifestyle."
