Hells Angels-man fast med vapen – i rätten


Här är närstridsvapnet som en framträdande Hells Angels-medlem försökte få med sig in i tingsrätten.
Åklagaren menar att det var ägnat att användas "som vapen vid brott mot liv och hälsa".
Själv menar mannen att det är en kapsylöppnare.

Mannen är i 40-årsåldern och avtjänade nyligen ett långt fängelsestraff för bland annat grovt narkotikabrott och grov narkotikasmuggling. Dessutom är han en framträdande medlem i en av Hells Angels-avdelningarna i Göteborg.
Tidigare i år skulle han in i tingsrättens lokaler i närheten av Ullevi, i de centrala delarna av staden. Precis som alla andra behövde han passera den strikta säkerhetskontrollen vid entrén – då noterade ordningsvakten att mannen hade vad som polisen beskriver som ett "farligt föremål" i sin nyckelknippa.

 

Förklaringen: "Kapsylöppnare"

Polismannen som hade bevakningsuppdraget inne på tingsrätten förhörde genast mannen och fick då höra hans egen förklaring till varför han plockat med sig föremålet.
"Misstänkt förnekar brott och uppger att han använder den som kapsylöppnare", står det i förundersökningen.
Men enligt åklagare Magnus Bohlin är det allt annat än en pryl som man öppnar kapsyler med som HA-mannen gick omkring med. I åtalet beskriver åklagaren föremålet som ett närstridsvapen och menar att det "var ägnat att användas som vapen vid brott mot liv eller hälsa".

Mannen är av helt annan åsikt. I förhör förklarar han att han haft föremålet i ungefär ett halvår och att poliser som tidigare granskat det inte reagerat. Mannen förklarar också att han haft den i sin nyckelknippa när han passerat säkerhetskontroller på flygplatser.

 

Vill ha tillbaka föremålet

Om det var ett brott att bära den så hade han inte tagit med den till tingsrätten, uppger han i förhör. Han kräver i sin tur att få tillbaka sin ägodel.
Åtalet mot mannen gäller brott mot knivlagen. Tidigare har han bland annat dömts också för vapenbrott.
GT har utan framgång sökt åklagaren Anders Bolin samt Anders Lindstrand, som den misstänkte önskat som advokat. Målet skulle kunna avgöras utan huvudförhandling, står det i åtalet. I sådana fall föreslår åklagaren att HA-mannen ska betala totalt 13 500 kronor i dagsböter.

Kriminella lär sig undvika polisens avlyssning

De kriminella ser till att inte lämna några digitala spår efter sig, betalar gärna kontant och träffas när de ska göra upp sina affärer, och det försvårar polisens arbete.
Ekots granskning av narkotikahandeln fortsätter - idag om polisens problem att komma åt narkotikalangarna.


Det är nya tider, konstaterar Jan Flygar, kriminalinspektör på enheten mot internationell grov organiserad brottslighet i Stockholm
– Under senare tid har vi sett att många av de kriminella slutar vara med på sociala medier. De är inte med på Facebook och så vidare, och de vill lämna så få digitala spår som möjligt, säger han.

Förr fanns det telefontrafik som polisen kunde avlyssna. Nu funkar det inte så längre.
När de kriminella tar kontakt med varandra så ser de till att antingen träffas, eller så kommunicerar man via särskilda appar som polisen inte kan avlyssna.
– De kommunicerar via internet och via olika appar i sina telefoner, för det är mycket som vi inte kan avlyssna idag, säger Jan Flygar.

De kriminella betalar gärna kontant, för att inte lämna några digitala spår. Och när narkotikaaffärer och annat ska göras upp så ser man till att träffas, så polisen har svårt att samla bevis, enligt Jan Flygar.
– De ringer till varandra och stämmer träff och sen går de ut och går och pratar. Det har vi sett många exempel på, säger Jan Flygar.

De tar en promenad helt enkelt?
– Ja, walk and talk, säger Jan Flygar. Så det är tuffa tider för oss.

Enligt Jan Flygar så har de kriminella ständigt koll på polisens arbetsmetoder. Förundersökningar cirkulerar bland de dömda på landets fängelser. De läser noga, både för att se om någon tjallat och för att studera hur polisen arbetat, allt för att, enligt Jan Flygar, undvika att åka fast nästa gång.

Jag träffar Adam. Tidigare i livet sålde han heroin. Han har också missbrukat heroin själv. Adam var noga med att aldrig prata om narkotikaaffärer i telefon, inte heller via sms.
– Jag skriver aldrig några sms, för sms kan de ta fram. Även om du raderar det så kan de ta fram dina raderade sms, och det är inte bra, säger Adam.
Adam heter egentligen något annat

Heavy police presence as bikers meet in Charlottetown

CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. - Police forces from P.E.I. and other Maritime regions kept a close eye on a gathering of bikers in Charlottetown Saturday afternoon.


A group of about 100 bikers, ranging from members of outlaw motorcycle clubs to independent riders from across the Maritimes, took part in an Atlantic Confederation of Clubs (ACC) meeting at Hot Shots lounge to discuss discrimination against bikers.


While members were entering the bar, a large police presence remained in the parking lot taking photographs. The Guardian approached several members and asked if they were willing to discuss the issue of biker discrimination.


Although those individuals declined, one biker later told police and media they were allowed to join the meeting.

“It’s an open house, everyone is welcome,” said the biker.
However, once officers and reporters entered the building, a large group of members exited and said the building was full.
“We don’t want to be over capacitated,” said one biker. “We don’t want to break the law.”
RCMP Cpl. Andy Cook, the provincial outlaw motorcycle gang (OMG) co-ordinator, said the ACC meets about three to four times annually and their last visit to P.E.I. was in Summerside last year.
 “We’re here for the intelligence portion of things,” said Cooke, who noted that Charlottetown, Summerside and Kensington police were also at the event. “We’re all here to work as one unit to ensure public safety as well.”


Brad McConnell, Charlottetown police deputy chief for administration, said the police presence was not meant to “intimidate’ any ACC members, but to perform “due diligence” by gathering intelligence and keeping the peace.
“We recognize it’s prudent to monitor these gatherings of people involved in outlaw motorcycle gangs and offer peace of mind to the residents living and travelling through this area at the same time,” said McConnell.

Cook noted that only a portion of the group was comprised of outlaw motorcycle gang members.
“There are veteran clubs, there’s a whole host of different clubs that make up the membership of this group,” said Cook. “There are legitimate clubs and outlaws right up to independent persons who don’t ride with any motorcycle clubs.”


On the ACC’s website, the group states the history of motorcyclist rights organizations and their common goals of fighting government intrusion and harassment.


The major focus is on battling discrimination against bikers through the judicial system, with meetings often holding votes to see if members want to bring incidents to court.
“In many areas, businesses refuse to allow colours to be worn in their establishments, likewise, as anyone who wears colours can tell you, the law enforcement authorities treat patch holders more severely in many cases,” states the ACC. “The confederations consider such acts to be discriminatory and want it known that they will use every legal means possible to stop such practices.”


That stance would be in opposition to a statement made by the province earlier this week when premier Wade MacLauchlan said government will be developing new laws to target outlaw motorcycle gangs.

The first step would involve the province taking legal steps to possibly ban club colours in bars, make construction of fortified buildings illegal and regulate the sale of body armour. A second step would promise no public or financial support to members of motorcycle gangs involved in criminal activities.


Cook previously told The Guardian the difference between innocuous riding clubs and the “1%” clubs is that the “1 per centers” don’t feel the need to abide by the law.
P.E.I. has seen an increase of clubs who consider themselves “one per centers” during the past several years.


Last December, a Hells Angels club affiliated with the Woodbridge, Ont. chapter of the gang opened in Charlottetown, which marks the first Hells Angels presence in P.E.I.
The competing Bacchus club, which was promoted to a full one per cent status last weekend, has been in P.E.I. since 2012 and now has two “full patch” chapters in Alliston and Alberton.
“Not all these people commit criminal acts, but their membership supports criminal acts by reinforcing the ‘power of the patch,’” said Cook. “If you truly just want to ride your bikes, then report members of those clubs that are involved in committing crimes.”


McConnell said the increased presence of motorcycle gangs have been of concern to police.
“That’s why you see an increased police presence,” he said, adding that officers will continue to focus on the clubs. “Expect a similar response from police during future gatherings.”

Ny mann fra kriminelt miljø pågrepet i Sverige etter skyting mot utested i Oslo

(Dagbladet): En ny mann er pågrepet og varetektsfengslet i to uker siktet for drapsforsøk etter at det ble avfyrt skarpe skudd fra en rød Jeep mot Calle's Mat og Vinhus i Hausmannsgate i Oslo midt på dagen 12. desember i fjor.


34-åringen er en kjenning av politiet, domfelt og tilhører det kriminelle miljøet i Oslo.
22. desember meldte VG at mannen som i fjor ble frifunnet for skytingen på Mona Lisa, som tidligere tilhørte et gjengmiljø i Oslo, også er varetektsfengslet og siktet for skytingen i Hausmannsgate. Han skal ifølge Dagbladets kilder fått mange fiender i miljøet de siste åra.

Dagbladet får opplyst at angrepet skal ha vært rettet mot en kjenning av politiet og rettsvesenet som har tilknytning til det kriminelle miljøet i Oslo. Mannen er tidligere dømt for å ha utøvet vold ved flere anledninger på et utested i Oslo som i dag er nedlagt, men hvor han tidligere var varamedlem i styret. Han slo blant annet en mann i hodet med en hammer så han måtte sy seks sting. Da han var yngre ble han dømt for å true personer med pistol og kniv.

- Fløy fra England

Ingen personer ble skadd under skytingen på Calle's Mat og Vinhus , men politiet mener at skytingen er gjengtilknyttet og har tidligere uttalt at skytingen syntes å være målrettet.

Politiadvokat Ane Evang ved Seksjon for Organisert kriminalitet forteller at mannen som ble varetektsfengslet onsdag ble overlevert fra Norge til Sverige etter å ha blitt etterlyst for pågripelse.
- Han ble pågrepet i Sverige på Arlanda flyplass den 10. januar etter anmodning fra norsk påtalemyndighet og vi samarbeidet med svensk politi for å få ham overlevert til oss, sier Evang. Siktede reiste ut av landet kort tid etter skyteepisoden og har oppholdt seg i utlandet siden inntil han ankom Arlanda flyplass denne dagen.
Politiadvokaten forteller at 34-åringen fløy fra England til Sverige og pågrepet der.
- Hvorfor han ikke tok direktefly til Norge er jeg ikke kjent med, ei heller om og eventuelt når han hadde tenkt seg videre til Norge, sier Evang.
34-åringens forsvarer, Astri Aas-Hansen, ønsker ikke å kommentere saken overfor Dagbladet.

Politiet jakter flere

Alle de involverte personene i saken er siktet for drapsforsøk eller medvirkning til dette. To personer sitter nå varetektsfengslet i saken.
- Det er for tidlig å si hva motivet var på dette tidspunktet med tanke på bevisforspillelsesfare. Det er enda personer som ikke er pågrepet som politiet mener har vært involvert i saken, sier Evang.
- Etterforskningen går nå ut på å kartlegge de involverte personenes ulike roller, samt å avdekke hvem som satt i bilen og hvem som avfyrte skuddene, og selvfølgelig også motivet bak og årsaken til at det ble skutt mot utestedet. Det er en alvorlig sak som har høy prioritet hos politiet, sier Evang om skyteepisoden på åpen gate.

Fant fort bilen

Politiet sto fram til 22. desember uten pågripelser i saken. Da ble en gjengtilknyttet person siktet og det ble vurdert varetektsfengsling. Etter det har tre personer blitt tatt inn av politiet, men alle disse ble løslatt på et tidspunkt.


Vitner har fortalt at en bil sakket farten utenfor puben like før skuddene falt, og at den deretter stakk fra stedet. Bilen var stjålet og ble senere funnet hensatt ikke langt unna, i nærheten av Akerselva, skriver NTB.

Twin Peaks bikers appear in court, submit DNA swabs

For the second week in a row, about 24 bikers indicted in the May 2015 Twin Peaks shootout were in court Thursday, with 16 submitting DNA samples as part of the ongoing investigation.


The bikers in court Thursday were members of the Bandidos or one of the Bandidos support groups. Last week, (link is external) about 20 Cossacks or members of their support groups were required to appear in Waco’s 54th State District Court as trial dates grow closer for several bikers.


A Waco Police Department crime scene technician took DNA swabs from inside 16 of the bikers’ mouths based on search warrants issued by 74th State District Judge Gary Coley Jr. Court officials said other bikers in the group already had submitted swabs voluntarily.


After the brief court appearance, the bikers and attorneys were told to return to court March 23 for another appearance on the court’s announcement docket.


Security was tight at the courthouse (link is external), with extra officers posted on the inside and outside of the building.


Prosecutors are still providing evidence to defense attorneys (link is external) as the materials are analyzed and become available. Of the 192 bikers arrested since the May 2015 shootout, 155 have (link is external) been (link is external) indicted (link is external) on identical engaging in organized criminal activity charges, first-degree felonies.


The first trial is set for April 17 (link is external) in Waco’s 19th State District Court. The first biker to stand trial likely will be Christopher Jacob Carrizal; his father, Christopher Julian Carrizal; or Jerry Pierson, all Bandidos from Dallas.


Seven more bikers have tentative trial dates from June through December.

Police Research confirms the majority of the members of MC Clubs do not have any serious criminal history, and 7 of the 26 clubs subject to VLAD laws do not have members with serious criminal history.

Police Research confirms the majority of the members of MC Clubs do not have any serious criminal history, and 7 of the 26 clubs subject to VLAD laws do not have members with serious criminal history.

The innocent deserve protection, and should not be the subject of these draconian VLAD laws.
The research, as provided to the Courier Mail last week, confirms that these laws effect people with no serious criminal history, and target 7 clubs whose members do not have any serious criminal history.


According to an article published on the weekend, police “researchers” told the Courier Mail that “…more than 70 per cent of members of some bikie clubs have serious criminal convictions” and that “nearly half of all members of the top 19 violent outlaw gangs had convictions for serious crimes.”


Statistics can be manipulated and I would like to make some comments on these ones in particular.
The public is being asked to swallow these figures and conclude that the VLAD laws are justified because some of the members of clubs have a criminal history.


It is important to remember these laws allow for severe mandatory sentencing, solitary confinement, fear of being seen in public, the reversal of the right to bail and innocence, and other denials of natural justice and human rights.

 These sorts of laws should not be passed lightly, or without careful research on who will be effected.
They should not undermine the rule of law, or civil rights, nor should they prevent freedom of the right to protest, or the right to associate.


Unfortunately this is not the case with the VLAD laws.
This is why these laws have come under strong criticism from Judges, Amnesty, human rights groups, and organisations across the globe.

 They offend Australia’s treaty obligations, and involve a serious erosion of civil liberties, freedoms, and rights.

 The means never justify the ends, and these means are undeniably draconian.
Let’s look at the police “statistics” – noting the Courier Mail did not provide much detail, because they actually demonstrate that the majority of members of these clubs do not have criminal histories.
Firstly, these statistics choose to only refer to 19 of the 26 clubs named – so how do they justify the laws applying to the other 7 clubs named on the list?

 Does that mean they made a mistake naming the other clubs?
Presumably the statistics for those clubs are insignificant which is why they have not be mentioned in the Courier Mail.
Lest we also forget that they have named a club (The Scorpions) that does not even exist in Australia – why include them!

 So much for carefully researching and vetting which clubs deserve to be subjected to draconian laws.
Secondly, on their own “statistics”, 2/3rds of members of the majority of clubs DO NOT have any serious convictions.

Why tar all members with no history with the same brush then?
Why are these laws being used to target clubs where less than 1/3 of members have a criminal history?

 Why are persons with no criminal history subject to the same draconian laws?
Can the loss of the presumption of innocence really be justified where the majority effected have no history at all?


Finally, the statistics also fail to differentiate between criminal histories which predate membership of a motorcycle club, and therefore have no relevance to their membership of the club, or their current lifestyle. As a lawyer I was always taught that people can rehabilitate, and indeed I have seen first and people change their lives around when they mature and start building a family life.
To judge someone on their past is a mistake. People do change.

 Sometimes people need a place to belong – such as a club – to help them achieve their life goals.
Many Vietnam veterans for example joined clubs when they returned from fighting for Australia – yet these guys are also subject to the same draconian laws, even if they only joined for a few months in the 1970s (the laws are retrospective too by the way!).

These are men that fought for Australia, yet now they fear marching on ANZAC Day!
What is happening to our country!


Then there are the funerals that are being stalked by police trying to catch more than 2 club members arriving at the same time to mourn the death of a friend.

 I cannot see how that can be justified (especially when the deceased was not even a member at the time of his passing which has been the case on at least two funerals this year).

 Surely some things are sacred – births death and marriages would have to be three of the ceremonies that deserve respect.


Laws should not target people simply because of what they might do.
Laws should not punish people for who they choose to befriend, or associate with.
If the majority of members do not have convictions, then why are they being targeted?
If only a minority of members have any criminal history, then how can they justify why are these clubs being declared to be “criminal organisations”?

How can they justify targeting their friends, family and associates?
The innocent deserve protection from these laws.

Did Bruce pay Informant Ignasiak $80,000 to lie in Chosen Few Case?

Last week we wrote about an apparent miscarriage of justice perpetrated by former Assistant US Attorney Anthony M. Bruce as he prosecuted 20 innocent men who were members of a Depew, NY motorcycle club called the Chosen Few.


Bruce saw his case fall apart as his informant David Ignasiak was revealed to be a serial liar, a drug addict, a criminal ready to prompt men to potentially injure, even murder each other, and was possibly coached to lie.


After last week’s Chosen Few story, people started calling to tell what they knew.
The story will need to be told in installments over weeks.


bruce-face


Anthony M. Bruce. His victims actually call him ‘Brucifer’.
This week we will preview some of what we learned.
In some indictments, Bruce refers to defendants by their first and last names and sometimes adds a nickname.  Ironically, Bruce seems to have picked up a nickname himself which is used by some of his victims.


They call him “Brucifer”.
Among other information we learned this week is that Ignasiak was known to be unreliable by law enforcement long before the indictments of the 20 innocent men.


Part of the case against the Chosen Few was that they allegedly used pipe bombs, or as Bruce once called them, “Molotov Cocktails,” to attack rival gangs.


Bruce brought charges against the president of the club, Alex Koschtschuk, and other members of the Chosen Few with conspiracy to possess, test and throw pipe bombs – charging some with attempted murder – at the clubhouse of the Lonely Ones, a motorcycle club in Blasdell.


Bruce knew these “pipe bombs” were m80 firecrackers, as we shall show in future stories.
No one was injured by the firecrackers.


As part of their investigation, the federal government bugged the Chosen Few’s clubhouse in Depew. A law enforcement source told us they heard “Lots of ‘felony talk’ but no felonies. Guys talking tough. (Bruce) was trying to make something out of it. He wanted to get a motorcycle gang. One time someone’s girlfriend asked one of the guys to bring home a watermelon. An agent said, ‘that’s code for cocaine.’ But it wasn’t. The guy really brought home a watermelon.”


After years of listening, there was no record of drugs being sold. One guy was caught on tape with a girl. Except for Ignasiak, who was high as a kite on cocaine, no one used hard drugs.

Socialdemokraterne vil sende danske rockere og bandemedlemmer til andre lande i en udvekslingsaftale.

Socialdemokraterne vil lave en udvekslingsaftale med Sverige, Norge og Finland, der indebærer, at man bytter indsatte rockere og bandemedlemmer, så de bliver skilt ad i fængslerne.
Forslaget er inspireret af den sektionering, der i forvejen foregår mellem de danske fængsler.  Ifølge Socialdemokraterne er der efterhånden så mange rockere og bandemedlemmer i de danske fængsler, at det er svært at adskille dem i Danmark.
- Det seneste år har vi set, at der er kommet ekstremt mange flere rockere og bandemedlemmer i de danske fængsler. Vi har også set, at konflikterne er eskaleret, siger Trine Bramsen, der er retsordfører for Socialdemokraterne og fortsætter:


- Spreder vi dem ud, så kan de i hvert fald ikke organisere sig og blive en endnu stærkere enhed, mens de sidder i fængslet.

DF: Udmærket forslag

Hos Dansk Folkeparti er man positive overfor Socialdemokraternes forslag.
- Det vil betyde, at man vil have nemmere ved at holde styr på dem som fængselsbetjent – og passe på, at de ikke foretager sig noget, som de ikke skal, siger Peter Kofod Poulsen, der er retsordfører for Dansk Folkeparti.
- Jeg synes, at det er et udmærket forslag, fortsætter han.
Trine Bramsen opfordrer regeringen til at gå videre til Sverige, Norge og Finland med forslaget. Hun mener nemlig, at de tre lande står overfor de samme udfordringer i fængslerne som Danmark.

Lars Løkke: Et langt, sejt træk

Statsminister Lars Løkke Rasmussen siger, at det er et langt, sejt træk, at finde en løsning på rocker- og bandeproblemerne.
- Hvis der havde været en enkel opskrift på, hvordan man løser bandeproblemerne, så vil jeg tro, at jeg selv havde brugt det sidst, jeg var statsminister. Eller at den tidligere socialdemokratiske regering havde brugt det. Vi er nødt til at indse, at det er et langt, sejt træk, siger han.
Han er dog ikke helt afvisende overfor forslaget.
- Hvis der er gode, kreative ideer til, hvordan vi løser det i praksis, så vil vi gerne lytte til dem. Der er ikke copyright i politik. Og kommer der en god socialdemokratisk ide, som de glemte at bruge, da de selv var i regering, så tager vi den gerne til os, lyder det fra Lars Løkke Rasmussen.


Trine Bramsen forklarer, at grunden til, at forslaget først kommer nu, er, at presset på fængslerne er blevet markant større, end det var, da Socialdemokraterne sad i regeringen.

Nachdem der niederländische Motorradclub „No Surrender“ wegen Verdachts auf Drogenhandel seinen Treffpunkt verloren hat, hat der Verein jetzt einen neuen Sitz im Emsland.
 
Emmen/Twist. Die niederländische Justiz geht verstärkt gegen kriminelle Aktivitäten von Motorradclubs vor. Im Oktober 2016 wurden ein 50-jähriges und ein 49-jähriges Clubmitglied von No Surrender in Nieuw Amsterdam und Klazienaveen wegen Verdachts auf Drogenhandel festgenommen. Im November beschlagnahmte die Polizei bei einer Wohnungsdurchsuchung beim Geschäftsführer und dem Kassenwart von No-Surrender in Klazinaveen eine Gaspistole und eine Signalpistole.


Am Wochenende hat die Polizei in Verbindung mit der Gemeinde Emmen und der Staatsanwaltschaft das Clubhaus an die Kapitein-Hatterras-Straat durchsucht und ein dort wohnendes 48-jähriges Clubmitglied aus Klazinaveen wegen Verdachts auf Drogenhandel festgenommen. Die Staatsanwaltschaft hat das Gelände gesperrt. Ohne Zustimmung der Behörde darf bis zum 20. Januar niemand das Grundstück betreten. Grundlage dieser Beschlüsse ist der Verdacht, dass vom Clubhaus aus Handel mit harten Drogen betrieben wurde und von hier aus schwere Gewaltverbrechen in Auftrag gegeben worden sind, heißt es in einer gemeinsamen Pressemitteilung der Polizei, der Gemeinde und der Staatsanwaltschaft.


Clubhaus abgerissen
Die Gemeinde Emmen hat den Pachtvertrag des Clubs für das Grundstück gekündigt und das ohne Baugenehmigung errichtete Clubhaus zu Beginn der Woche abreißen lassen. Durchsucht wurden auch Wohnungen führender Clubmitglieder. Wie die Polizei bekannt gab, seien dabei Spuren von harten Drogen gefunden, und mutmaßliches Diebesgut beschlagnahmt worden.


Das Clubhaus sei Treffpunkt von niederländischen und ausländischen Mitgliedern zur Absprache von Drogengeschäften gewesen, heißt es seitens der Staatsanwaltschaft. Es bestehe zudem der begründete Verdacht, dass hier nicht fügsame Clubangehörige schwer misshandelt worden sind. Außerdem sei es in Verbindung mit den kriminellen Geschäften zu Erpressungen gekommen. Inzwischen wurde bekannt, dass die Polizei die Aktivitäten im Clubhaus abgehört hat.


Polizei spricht sich grenzüberschreitend ab
Clubchef Henk Kuipers will nicht aufgeben. Im Gespräch mit dem Algemeen Dagblad gab er bekannt, das der Verein sein Zentrum nach Deutschland ins Emsland verlegt hat, und zwar in die Nähe des Grenzübergangs Zwartemeer/Hebelermeer im Gebiet der Gemeinde Twist. Hier gibt es das No-Surrender-Chapter MC Darkside. Auf Anfrage bestätigte die Polizeiinspektion Emsland/Grafschaft Bentheim, dass sie von den niederländischen Kollegen über den Umzug des Clubs und die Hintergründe informiert worden ist. Jetzt gebe es stetige Absprache mit den Kollegen im Nachbarland.


No Surrender ist 2013 als Abspaltung von des Motorradclubs Satudarah entstanden, der ebenfalls Mitglieder in Deutschland hat. . Der in Klazienaveen bei Meppen wohnende Kuipers hat die Partei Rechtdoor (Geradeaus) gegründet, die an den Wahlen in den Niederlanden teilnehmen will. Er bezeichnet das politische System in seinem Heimatland als „Scheindemokratie“.

A former skate sharpening shop in a residential area of Charlottetown became the first home of a Hells Angels club in December and outlaw motorcycle gangs have set up shop in other areas of the province.

Members of the Darksiders North Shore club in Dartmouth, N.S. head to the gathering of bike gangs in Charlottetown Saturday night. The gathering was held at 205 Fitztoy Street in a building that was once a skate sharpening business and coin laundry. Police said gang members from across Canada attended the event that was watched by RCMP and Charlottetown Police Services

De två mc-medlemmar som dömts för utpressning i Sjöbo överklagar nu sina fängelsedomar.

De båda männen kommer från norra Skåne och tillhör det kriminella gänget La Familia, som har en avdelning i Finja.

Enligt tingsrättens dom söktede upp en man i Sjöbo i maj förra året, iförda mc-västar. De krävde mannen på böter för att han träffat en kvinna som de ansåg tillhöra det kriminella gänget.
Utpressarna återkom sedan och krävde ytterligare pengar eftersom de ansåg att "skulden" inte betalades av tillräckligt snabbt.


Den utpressade mannen betalade sammanlagt 93 000 kronor till männen, utbetalningar som bevisats med kontoutdrag. Männen dömdes till ett års och tre månaders fängelse vardera för grov utpressning. De dömdes även att betala skadestånd till brottsoffret.


Männen vänder sig nu till hovrätten och hävdar att de är oskyldiga. De anser inte att de ska betala skadestånd, och de vill få tillbaka de mc-västar som tagits i beslag.


Den ene mannen, som är i 20-årsåldern, förklarar dessutom att han inte känner något förtroende för sin advokat och därför vill få honom utbytt.


Den andra mannen, som är i 40-årsåldern, utvecklar sitt överklagande. Genom sin advokat Sven-Eric Ohlsson hävdar han att han "lämnat plausibla förklaringar till så gott som allt som påstås om honom". Det är inte ställt bortom rimligt tvivel att mannen begått något brott, heter det i överklagandet.


Bland annat hävdas att identifieringen av den nu dömde mannen inte är ett utpekande av tyngd, eftersom brottsoffret kände igen utpressaren via facebook. Vidare påpekas att den kvinna som besökt mannen i Sjöbo inte har hörts under rättegången.


Advokaten skriver också att de pengar som förts över till mannens konto kan vara en betalning för droger. I andra hand yrkar advokaten att mannen ska dömas till ett mildare straff, och påpekar att det inte förekommit några uppenbara hot. Han delar inte tingsrättens uppfattning att ett brott ska anses som grovt för att mc-västar har använts.

OSLO TINGHUS (VG) Denne 52-åringen var en av Gjermund Cappelens mest betrodde menn i hasjligaen. I 2005 ble han brukt som rørlegger på Eirik Jensens nye bad.

Denne saken handler om:

 – Jeg har aldri møtt denne rørleggeren. Jeg kjente ham ikke, jeg visste ikke hva han het engang, forklarte Eirik Jensen (59) i Oslo tingrett i går.
Den tidligere politilederen og hans daværende samboer kjøpte et småbruk i Nes kommune i Akershus i 2005.


Kort tid etter overtagelsen satte de i gang med et omfattende restaureringsprosjekt, noe som inkluderte et helt nytt bad i andre etasje.

Spesialenheten for politisaker mener narkokriminelle Gjermund Cappelen (50) betalte for materialer og håndverkere – blant dem en rørlegger. I går ble det kjent at rørleggeren som ble brukt, var en 52 år gammel mann fra Oslo.

Dette er ikke bestridt av Eirik Jensen og hans forsvarere.
52-åringen er en barndomsvenn av Cappelen, og de to har fulgt hverandre tett siden. I tenårene begynte de å røyke hasj sammen, ifølge en dom fra Asker og Bærum tingrett.

Hadde 109 kilo hasj i garasjen

Da politiet rullet opp hasjligaen til Cappelen i desember 2013, var 52-åringen en av dem som ble pågrepet. Spaning og telefonavlytting hadde avslørt at rørleggeren var en av de mest sentrale løpeguttene i hasjligaen.


I 52-åringens garasje på Røa i Oslo hadde politiet avdekket et lager med 109 kilo hasj. Natt til 18. desember 2013 gjorde spanere «innbrudd» i lageret og tok all hasjen.


Dette for å fremprovosere møter og kommunikasjon mellom personene i hasjligaen. Det første rørleggeren gjorde da han oppdaget at hasjen var borte – var å ringe til Cappelen. Telefonsamtalen ble avlyttet:
Rørleggeren: – Dem har tatt alt ... Faen!
Cappelen: Neeei.
Rørleggeren: Jo.

Sammen med resten av hasjligaen, ble rørleggeren i november 2015 dømt til fengsel. 52-åringen ble dømt etter den såkalte «mafiaparagrafen», for å ha vært en del av en organisert kriminell gruppe.
Asker og Bærum tingrett, som dømte rørleggeren til fengsel i 13 år, beskriver ham som en av «Cappelens mest sentrale medarbeidere»:
– Hans rolle synes å ha vært transport og oppbevaring av hasj. Han har møtt kureren, plassert og hentet på lager og levert til kjøper, står det i dommen.
Rørleggeren har anket dommen, og saken kommer opp for Borgarting lagmannsrett i slutten av januar.


Kommentar: Ekstrem oppussing

Cappelen signerte med falskt navn

I Oslo tingrett i går ble Eirik Jensen bedt om å forklare seg om bilder og kvitteringer knyttet til oppussingen av badet på småbruket i 2005. Det var Cappelen som hadde anbefalt håndverkeren som ble brukt, ifølge Jensen.
– Han kjente en mann som drev et enmannsfirma. Han skulle være jævla flink.
– Jeg vet bare at det var håndverkeren som styrte. Jeg spurte aldri hvor rørleggeren kom fra, forklarte Jensen.

Spesialenheten grillet Jensen særlig om et spesifikt dokument, som er håndskrevet og signert «Frank Olsen»:
«Vedlagte fakturaer inneholder deler av hva som er blitt levert og montert. For dette er det mottatt kroner 32 500.»
– Jeg tror det er totalen for rørleggerarbeidet. Jeg har aldri møtt denne rørleggeren, forklarte Jensen.
Før Spesialenheten tok beslag i dokumentet, forklarte Cappelen at det var hans håndskrift og at «Frank Olsen» var en oppdiktet person. Skrifteksperter har senere konkludert med at sannsynligvis er Cappelens sin håndskrift.
– Vi noterer at det er en mulighet, sier advokat Arild Holden, som er en av forsvarerne til Jensen.


Spesialenheten for politisaker: Dette badet var betaling for hasj-samarbeid


Cappelen: – Jensen visste hvem rørleggeren var 

Spesialenheten har også funnet flere kvitteringer knyttet til kjøp av rør hos en forhandler. På noen av disse er den 52-årige rørleggerens fingeravtrykk funnet.


Før kvitteringene ble funnet, forklarte Cappelen at disse var avrevet i toppen. Da Spesialenheten fant disse, så de at Cappelens forklaring stemte – øverste del av flere av kvitteringene var revet av.
Bakgrunnen for dette skal ha vært at det var viktig for Jensen at rørleggerens navn ikke fremgikk. Dette fordi han visste at rørleggeren var en del av hasjligaen, ifølge Cappelen.


I Oslo tingrett hadde Jensen ingen formening om hvorfor kvitteringene var avrevet eller hvor de kom fra. Spesialenheten har taksert verdien av materialbruk og arbeidet med badet til nesten 300 000 kroner. De mener badet er blant de økonomiske fordelene som Cappelen har gitt Jensen i som godtgjørelse for politiinformasjon.




B.C. judge rules on trial-delay application for Hells Angels convicted in drug case

A bid by two members of the Hells Angels and two of their associates to set aside their convictions in a major cocaine conspiracy owing to trial delay was dismissed by a judge Wednesday.


In September, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Carol Ross found Hells Angels David Giles and Bryan Oldham and their associates, Shawn Womacks and James Howard, guilty in the drug case.


Following the convictions, the offenders applied to have a judicial stay of proceedings on the grounds that an unreasonable delay in their case had violated their rights.

The accused had been charged in August 2012 and were convicted more than 49 months later. A recent decision on the issue of trial delay in the Supreme Court of Canada called for cases at the superior-court level to be completed within 30 months.


Giles and his co-accused argued that the delay in their case exceeded the new limit set by Canada’s highest court by a wide margin, even after consideration of delays waived by the defence and time loss due to exceptional circumstances. They argued that while there was some degree of complexity, it was not a particularly complex case.


In her reasons for judgment released Wednesday, the judge noted that the case involved the gathering of evidence in an undercover operation in Panama.


A voir dire, or trial-within-a-trial, was conducted in relation to the admissibility of the Panama evidence, with the start of the voir dire being significantly delayed and the voir dire itself being much longer than anticipated.


The accused argued that the cause of the delay was a failure by the Crown to make timely disclosure of documents, but the Crown countered that there was substantial defence delay and contended that it had properly discharged its disclosure obligations.


The judge found that the Crown had responded promptly to all requests for disclosure and added that the defence applications were not frivolous or done to create delays.
“In the present case, I conclude that this case was particularly complex,” Ross said in a summary of her ruling read out in court. “I find that the time that was taken to litigate this matter was justified and that the delay is reasonable in all of the circumstances.”


Howard, who was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to traffic and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, will have a sentencing hearing Jan. 24-25. Giles, who was convicted of one count of conspiracy to import cocaine, one count of conspiracy to traffic and one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, will have a sentencing hearing March 2-3.


Oldham, found guilty of one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, will be sentenced March 9 and Womacks, also guilty of one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking, will be sentenced March 20.


The accused were arrested after an undercover police operation included meetings between the accused and cops posing as members of a drug cartel in Vancouver, Montreal, Mexico City and Panama City. A $2-million down payment for the purported delivery of 200 kilograms of cocaine was paid in June 2012 and another $2 million paid two months later.

UPDATED: Man charged in tattoo shop arson previously arrested over Outlaw gang activity

A 29-year-old Regina man who faces charges over a July 2016 tattoo shop arson had previously been arrested in Ontario during a police investigation into the Outlaw Motorcycle Club.


On Jan. 12, Kelly Ryan Powell was charged with arson causing damage to property, and with uttering threats, in relation to the July 4 overnight blaze at the Gaslight Tattoo Parlour on the 1300 block of Saskatchewan Drive. After police and fire units responded to the scene, the fire was determined to have been started deliberately.


Powell made his first appearance on the matter at Regina Provincial Court on Jan. 13, and has been remanded in custody. He also faces mischief, theft and possession of weapons charges in a Barrie, Ont. court on Thursday in relation to a July 29, 2016 incident in which a gas station ATM was broken into in broad daylight near Parry Sound, Ontario.


After a large sum of money was taken from the breached ATM, a total of nine people — seven Reginans — were arrested, with Ontario Provincial Police saying the perpetrators were members of the Outlaw Motorcycle Club who were headed to a national gathering in Alliston, Ont.
When a warrant was executed, police found a loaded firearm, switchblades and retractable, police-style batons, and subsequently charged the eight men and one woman with a range of offences

OSLO TINGRETT (VG) En rørlegger i Cappelen-ligaen deltok i oppussingen av badet til Eirik Jensen. Jobben ble aldri betalt.

Denne saken handler om:

Eirik Jensens forsvarer Arild Holden overrasket Spesialenheten for politisaker da han opplyste i retten at det ikke var bestridt fra deres side at 52-åringen var en av håndverkerne.
– Kan vi be om få det protokollert, sa aktor Kristine Schilling til dommer Kim Heger.


DIREKTE: Få siste nytt fra retten her.


52-åringen er rørlegger og ble i fjor dømt sammen med Gjermund Cappelen i Asker og Bærum tingrett for oppbevaring av 476 kilo hasj.


Rørleggeren var oppført som nummer to i tiltalen, etter Cappelen, og ble dømt til 13 års fengsel. Dommen er anket.


Eirik Jensen har i retten forklart at det var flere håndverkere som deltok i oppussingen og at han aldri møtte den hasjdømte rørleggeren.


Cappelen: Jeg betalte

Gjermund Cappelen har forklart at det var han som betalte for det nye badet på småbruket, som Jensen kjøpte på Fenstad i Nes kommune sammen med sin daværende samboer i 2005.


Spesialenheten for politisaker har taksert verdien av arbeidet til 292.250 kroner. De mener baderommet er blant de økonomiske fordelene som Cappelen har gitt til Jensen som godtgjørelse for politiinformasjon.


I retten onsdag forklarte Eirik Jensen at han fortalte til Cappelen at han hadde kjøpt et småbruk og påbegynt en stor oppussingsjobb.
– Han fortalte da at han kjente en mann som drev et enmannsfirma. Han skulle være jækla flink, sa Jensen.


Spesialenheten for politisaker: Dette badet var betaling for hasj-samarbeid


Den pensjonerte politioverbetjenten fortalte videre at han ringte mannen som Cappelen anbefalte. Dansken kom på befaring og ga et prisoverslag på 120.000 kroner, ifølge Jensen.
– Skylder dere pr. i dag noen penger for arbeidet, spurte aktor Kristine Schilling.
– Det kan man jo si. NN (dansk håndverker) kom aldri og hentet de avtalte 120.000, svarte Jensen.

Karlstad har rätt att vräka Hells Angels

Karlstad kommun har rätt att vräka Hells Angels-klubben Solstadens motorklubb enligt en dom i hovrätten. Arkivbild.Bild: Vegard Grøtt/NTB/TT

Karlstad kommun kan vräka Hells Angels från den fastighet som mc-klubben använder som klubblokal. Det slår hovrätten fast i en dom, uppger lokala medier.

Kommunen har i förhandlingarna hänvisat till att HA-klubben Solstadens motorsport inte försäkrat fastigheten, som klubben hyr av kommunen. Det skulle innebära att Solstaden brutit mot hyresavtalet och kan sägas upp.

Klubben har hävdat att försäkringen är fastighetsägarens ansvar.
I en dom från december 2015 gav Värmlands tingsrätt kommunen rätt i frågan. En uppfattning som hovrätten nu delar. MC-klubben ska också betala kommunens rättegångskostnader i tings- och hovrätt på sammanlagt 479 555 kronor, uppger SVT Nyheter Värmland.
"Det här är en seger för demokratin och vår kamp mot de kriminella nätverken. Vi vill inte ha Hells Angels i Karlstad och hoppas att de nu accepterar det här domslutet och lämnar lokalen", säger Per-Samuel Nisser (M), kommunstyrelsens ordförande i ett pressmeddelande.

Hit man from Hamilton travelled to B.C. after contract taken out on full-patch member of Hells Angels

A high-profile Hells Angel from B.C. was the target of a murder attempt by a purported Hamilton hitman, Postmedia News has learned.


B.C.’s anti-gang agency announced late Friday that two Ontario men had been charged with conspiracy to commit murder and attempted murder in separate plots that targeted two Metro Vancouver men in the spring of 2015.


Neither of the alleged victims was named by the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit.
However, on Monday Postmedia obtained a copy of the indictment that alleges one of the men charged, Knowah Truth Ferguson, attempted to kill Hells Angel Damion Ryan with a firearm in Richmond on April 10, 2015.


Justin Tang / Canadian Press


Justin Tang / Canadian PressMembers of the Hells Angels from British Columbia and Ontario enter the Hells Angels Nomads compound during the group's Canada Run event in Carlsbad Springs, Ont., near Ottawa, on Saturday, July 23, 2016. Ryan, who’s from Metro Vancouver, is now living in Greece and remains a full-patch member of the notorious biker gang.

He regularly travels back and forth to B.C. where his uncle is also a full-patch Hells Angel.
CFSEU spokesman Staff Sgt. Lindsey Houghton said the agency learned of the April 2015 attempted murder “of a man well known for gang involvement and criminal connections” days after it happened and began “a complex multi-jurisdictional investigation that spanned the country.”
“Investigators believe that this was a highly planned and targeted attempt that saw alleged contracted hit men travel to British Columbia from Ontario for the purposes of killing the intended target,” Houghton said. “The attempt was unsuccessful.”


Houghton said police also uncovered evidence of a second plot to kill an unknown person in Vancouver in June 2015.
Ferguson, 19, and Gino Gavin McCall, 30, are also charged with conspiracy to commit murder between April 11 and June 15, 2015.

Both men face a third count of possession of loaded prohibited firearms without authorization or licences in Vancouver on June 14, 2015.


Ferguson and McCall have been in custody since June 2015 on the firearms charges.
The new direct indictment against the pair was sworn in B.C. Supreme Court on Jan. 6. Both are due to appear at the Vancouver Law Courts on Feb. 22.


Houghton said police don’t have details about who allegedly hired the Hamilton men or whether they have gang affiliations.


Ferguson has no prior criminal convictions, though he was also charged while in custody last March with carrying or threatening to use a weapon. He’s due in Port Coquitlam Provincial Court on that count in May.


McCall’s record includes convictions for robbery, break and enter and other property-related offences.
Houghton said investigators continue to work on both cases.
“Charges against other individuals are anticipated in the coming months and an update will be provided when new charges are laid,” he said.
Ryan could not be reached for comment.

Up until last fall, he was a member of the Ottawa-based Ontario Nomads chapter of the Hells Angels.
But that chapter was disbanded in September 2016 just weeks after hosting a national gathering of hundreds of bikers.


Ryan is also linked to the Wolf Pack gang coalition in B.C., which is made up of some Hells Angels and some members of both the Independent Soldiers and Red Scorpions.
He often posts Wolf Pack imagery on his social media accounts.


Last year, Ryan was arrested in Vancouver for breaching bail conditions related to charges he was facing in Ontario. He later pleaded guilty to some of the charges – two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking and one of possession of stolen property – as well as the breach. He was sentenced to three months in jail.

Ryan faced dozens of firearms charges in B.C. that were thrown out in 2012 after his lawyer successfully argued that the RCMP violated his Charter rights when an emergency response team forcibly entered his Burnaby basement suite after shots were fired outside.


He and nine others were wounded in a gangland shooting at an Oak Street restaurant on Dec. 12, 2010. Vancouver police said at the time the attack was in retaliation for the assassination of gangster Gurmit Singh Dhak in Burnaby two months earlier.


Ryan was sentenced to five years in 2005 in connection with a violent home invasion involving a marijuana-growing operation.

Biker gang rolls into town – Outlaws open clubhouse on Princess St.

Kingston has marketed itself as a place to do business. Centrally located between Montreal and Toronto with border crossings close by. But it seems that marketing ploy has also caught the attention of a notorious biker gang.

 The Outlaws — the world’s third largest motorcycle club — have set up a clubhouse in this non-descript building — across from the Kingston Centre.



 The only signage is this Harley Davidson logo and a warning not to take photography of any kind.
According to a former cop and expert on biker gangs, a chapter usually starts with 6 members on probation — before being elevated to full ‘patch’ status after a year.
The Outlaws aren’t hiding the fact they are opening a chapter in the Limestone City — it’s listed on their website.


Morganne Campbell:
“I spoke with one club supporter and business owners who operate near the new clubhouse and they say the Outlaws have been good neighbours so far.
In fact, they haven’t had any issues since they moved into this clubhouse.

 Now the Outlaws refer to themselves as a brotherhood and not a criminal organisation.”
A point highlighted on their website.
”We have families, jobs, and responsibilities just like everyone else and although the media like to portray us as being criminals, the truth is we share a common goal of enjoying life to the fullest.”


Outlaws MC Canada
 CKWS reached out to the Outlaws to speak about their intentions locally.
“We respectfully decline your offer as Outlaws MC Canada does not do interviews. But thank-you and have a nice day.”

Outlaws MC Canada
A former cop and biker gang expert who didn’t want to appear on camera says the arrival of a biker gang in Kingston is a troubling scenario…. because the club could rapidly expand membership.
The last time biker gangs tried to make in-roads in Kingston was over a decade ago — but they left after covert police operations led to arrests … and the seizure of drugs, money and weapons.

 An undercover police officer told CKWS they’re monitoring the Outlaws’ current activity and told us that, so far, there’s no indication the bikers have done anything wrong… and there’s no risk to public safety. But police also made it clear — they’re watching.

What is the CIA doing in the USA?



The CIA's circus side show trying to defame and upstage Donald Trump with absolute nonsense forces us to ask the same question Jesse Ventura asked when he was elected governor of Minnesota. What is the CIA doing in the USA? That's illegal.

Jesse Ventura shared a strange experience that happened to him a month after he was elected governor. He was taken to the basement of the capital to be interviewed by 23 members of the CIA. They sat him down in a chair and formed a half circle around him. Jesse Ventura then said before I answer any of your questions, I want to know what are you doing here? Because in the CIA mission statement it says that they're not to be operational inside the United States of America. They would not answer the question. That is the exact question that needs to be answered now with all this ridiculous beefing between Trump and the CIA. The CIA have no business meddling in the democratic elections within the United States of America.

Criminal Lawyers dot com states that "The CIA's job is to collect and analyze information (or "intelligence") from foreign countries about potential risks to our national security. The CIA then passes on that information to US government officials, such as the President, members of Congress or the US Department of Defense. Government officials use that information to figure out the nation's foreign policy: How the US, as a nation, will react to or deal with a particular problem or threat posed by a foreign government or group."

"There are two main things to remember about what the CIA does not do. First, it isn't a law enforcement agency. It has no authority to arrest anyone or to enforce any laws. It simply gathers information. Also, the CIA works only in foreign matters. It is illegal for the CIA to investigate any US citizen or company inside the US, unless an investigation is part of a foreign intelligence. For example, the CIA may investigate a US citizen who's suspected of being part of a terrorist plot being planned in a foreign country. Unlike the CIA, the FBI is a law enforcement agency. In fact, it's often called the largest law enforcement agency on the planet. Also unlike the CIA, the FBI does not work in foreign countries."

So there ya have it. The CIA is to operate outside the United States and the FBI is to operate inside the United States. The only time the CIA is allowed to investigate someone inside the United States is when that person is suspected of being involved with committing a terrorist attack outside the United States. If that person is suspected of being involved with a terrorist attack inside the United States that falls under the FBI's jurisdiction not the CIA. The was illustrated in the Netflix series Quantico.

The CIA had no business questioning Governor Ventra and they have no business meddling in US elections or in defaming the democratically elected president. This also brings us back to Florida. What was the CIA doing bringing a ton of cocaine into Florida not once but twice?

As we have previously mentioned, Judge Bonner claimed that when he was head of the DEA the CIA brought a ton of cocaine into Florida. The profusely denied it until he went on 60 minutes and documented everything. Then they finally admitted that did in fact do that but the said it was a mistake. They were trying to tack the cocaine to arrest the suppliers. That was yet another bold faced lie. Something the CIA is mandated to do.

After the CIA brought the ton of cocaine into Florida they made absolutely no attempt whatsoever to track where it went after it hit the street and no arrests were made relation to any suppliers of the cocaine. They lied. It was not a sting operation it was simply a continuation of the drug trafficking that was so prevalent during Iran contra.

The second time the CIA was caught bringing a tone of cocaine into Florida they didn't claim it was mistake. They claimed they brought it there to have it destroyed. Yet another ridiculous lie. Why would anyone bring a ton of cocaine into Florida of all places to have it destroyed? Why not destroy it at source? Yet the fundamental question is, what was the CIA doing with cocaine in Florida? That is out of their jurisdiction.

Now we also have to ask what was the CIA doing in LA during the crack epidemic? Gary Webb revelaed that the CIA was responsible for the US crack epidemic in the /80's. After losing his job for telling the truth he documented everything in his book Dark Alliance.

The documentary Freeway Ricky: Crack in the System, further supported Gary Webb's claims. The documentary confirmed Freeway Ricky's direct connection to Blandon. Gary Webb clearly established that Oscar Danilo Blandón was the one bringing in the CIA's cocaine into the US to fund the Contra rebels in Nicaragua. That documents the fact that Freeway Ricky was unknowingly selling crack for the CIA and made a colossal amount of money doing so.

The DEA arrested Oscar Danilo Blandón but the feds pulled the plug on the investigation and wouldn't let him be prosecuted because of his ties to the CIA. So instead they paid Blandón to rat out one of his dealers, Freeway Ricky. That was the first time i'm aware of when a supplier gets police protection for ratting out a dealer when he then just has to pick a new dealer to continue his operation. In the documentary the DEA agent that arrested Freeway Ricky admitted that they lost faith after the feds pulled the plug on the Blandón bust so they started pocketing cash they seized from drug dealers. The corruption started to have a ripple effect.

Here's the twist: What was the CIA doing with Oscar Blandón in LA? That was out of their jurisdiction. Donald Trump may well help fix some of the bureaucracy within the CIA ike any good businessman would but the primary thing that needs to be fixed it to make them obey the law and stick to their mandated jurisdiction. That in itself would save a whole lot of tax dollars not to mention greatly improve national security.
