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.


tg-10122016-bikers-5.jpg


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.

Her er Eirik Jensens rørlegger

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.


Jobben ble aldri betalt: Cappelens betrodde venn pusset opp Jensens bad


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.
<p>HASJLAGER: I desember 2013 fant politiet 109 kilo hasj i garasjen til rørleggeren. Hasjen tilhørte Gjermund Cappelen. </p>

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.

Hillsboro biker reportedly headed to bench trial

A Hillsboro man who is reportedly one of five members of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club of Cincinnati who were involved in an incident last spring at an Aberdeen night spot is heading to a bench trial with three other club members.


The Ledger Independent in Maysville, Ky. reported that, according to the indictments of Wesley A. Gibson, 34, of Hillsboro, Robert Bowling, 59, of Cincinnati, John A. McIntosh Jr., 49, of West Union and Franklin Delano Griffith, 36, of Manchester, the incident happened on April 17, 2016. They were charged with alleged gang, assault and riotous activities.


A fifth man is already serving his sentence. Lawrence Wayne Allen Jr. entered a guilty plea to a count of aggravated riot, in August 2016, and was sentenced to two years of probation.


All five are members of the Iron Horsemen Motorcycle Club of Cincinnati, who allegedly approached the business doorman at approximately 1:30 a.m., and were denied entry, the Ledger Independent reported.


A business worker was allegedly assaulted and Aberdeen police and EMS were called to the scene. The worker and one of the bikers was taken to a hospital for treatment, police said, according to the Ledger Independent.


Aberdeen police filed the original complaint.
“We reviewed the security video and compared the timelines to determine who was doing what,” Aberdeen Police Chief Fred Hampton, said in April 2016, according to the Ledger Independent. “We then took what we had to the Brown County prosecutor, who also reviewed the video and decided to move forward with charges.”


According to Ohio Revised Code 2917.11, a riot is considered disorderly conduct with four or more individuals where violence is involved.


In October 2016, Brown County Prosecutors office requested to join the remaining four cases for trial purposes, which was approved by mutual agreement of the defendants’ attorneys and ordered by Judge Scott Gusweiler, court officials said, according to the newspaper.
“The four cases are being tried at one time, in front of the judge, without a jury,” the newspaper quoted Brown County Prosecutor Zac Corbin as saying.
The trial is reportedly scheduled to start Jan. 30.


All four are charged with second-degree participation in criminal gang, second-degree felonious assault with a criminal gang activity specification; fourth-degree riot with a criminal gang activity specification; misdemeanor assault; first-degree misdemeanor trespass; and fourth-degree misdemeanor aggravated criminal trespass.


According to police, security video at the scene helped identify alleged participants in the incident, the newspaper reported.

Judge to decide Hells Angel’s intentions in planned drug deal

Closing arguments have wrapped up in the drug trial of Rob Allen, and a judge must now decide the Hells Angels member’s intentions to deal drugs as part of a planned cocaine sale.
The 36-year-old's trial, which began in December, resumed Monday morning in Saskatoon’s Court of Queen’s Bench after both the Crown and defence submitted written closing arguments weeks ago.
Allen was arrested and charged, alongside 13 others, as part of the January 2015 Project Forseti raids in Saskatchewan and Alberta.
Defence lawyer Morris Bodnar argued in closing submissions Allen, who he described as a hard-working father and husband with no criminal record, had no involvement in the drug trade but became addicted to OxyContin after a back injury. Allen began dealing with police informant Noel Harder in the summer of 2013 to buy opioids off him, Bodnar said.


Harder, who officially signed up to be a police agent in the case in December 2014, was the only Crown witness called in the trial. He testified he and Allen were planning to move one kilogram of cocaine to Saskatoon from Hells Angels in Ontario in 2014. Harder would sell the cocaine, and although Allen would never be in direct contact with the drugs, he would receive a $5,000 cut, according to Harder. The drug deal never happened.


Bodnar argued the deal was a scenario set up and encouraged by police agents to “nail a Hells Angel” by putting together an attempt to convict him on a “broad” spectrum. He said Allen had no intention of ever trafficking drugs and continuously delayed the transaction. Allen just went along with Harder’s plan because he feared losing his connection to receiving opioids, Bodnar argued.


The defence lawyer said it’s “awful” that a family man with no criminal record was being prosecuted for trafficking drugs while a police informant with a criminal record was receiving $300,000 and getting charges dropped to work on the case. He said after Harder officially signed up to be a police agent he was still setting Allen up to get opioids from other people.


Crown prosecutor Douglas Curliss argued even if Allen’s part of the cocaine deal was a ruse, which Curliss called elaborate, Allen still intended for Harder to take it seriously and therefore should be convicted. He argued the cocaine deal was discussed months prior to Harder becoming a police agent, and said at times Allen controlled the situation by naming prices and delivery dates.


Curliss argued while Allen said he made about $200,000 a year, he defaulted on his mortgage twice in 2014 and spent between $1,000 to $2,000 a month on Oxycontin. The $5,000 pay cut would have helped Allen with his financial situation, Curliss said. He also pointed to Harder’s testimony that Allen wanted power in the Saskatoon drug trade and argued the cocaine deal would help him establish that power.


After the defence closed its case in December, Bodnar told reporters if Allen is found guilty he may argue entrapment, but after closing submissions he indicated that would no longer be the case.
Entrapment involves a law enforcement agent convincing someone to commit a crime they would not otherwise have committed.


Justice Grant Currie reserved his decision until February 13.

Avkappede hoder og gjengnavn skrevet i blod var det som møtte politiet da de tok seg inn i fengselet

(Dagbladet): I det siste av en rekke opprør og drapsbølger i brasilianske fengsler ble minst 26 personer drept i Alcacuz-fengselet i Brasil i går. Minst tre av de drepte ble halshugget.
Drapene er en del av gjengkrigen rundt narkotikahandelen i Brasil, hvor de største grupperingene posisjonerer seg og angriper hverandres medlemmer også bak murene.


Sao Paulo-baserte P.C.C., Comondo Vermelho og Familia do Norte fra Amazonas skyr ingen midler i kampen mot hverandre, og har ved flere anledninger byttet på angriperrollen. Ved kampene i Alcacuz gir politiet P.C.C. skylden.
- Opprøret er nå under kontroll, bekrefter major Eduardo Franco til New York Times.

100 drept i 2017

Politiet stormet fengselet søndag norsk tid, etter å ha ventet på soloppgang før de våget å gå inn. Det ble da gjort slutt på 14 timer med vold og drap i fengselet, skriver AFP. Fangene i Alcacuz hadde kappet strømmen og fått tilgang på skytevåpen da politiet tok seg inn.
Grusomhetene føyer seg inn i rekken av flere opprør i brasilianske fengsler den siste tiden, der over 100 innsatte er drept bare på denne siden av nyåret, ifølge BBC. Også i disse kampene har mange innsatte blitt halshugget eller fått lemmer kappet av kroppen, ifølge brasilianske myndigheter.


- Vi er sjokkert, sier Wilma Batista i det brasilianske fengselsvesenet til New York Times.

Hodeløse lik

Batista sier hun er tilsendt bilder av en rekke hodeløse lik fra drapene i Alcacuz. I Brasil sirkulerer også en mobilvideo av en maskert mann med machete som poserer over døde kropper bak fengselsmurene. Bokstavene P.C.C. står skrevet på veggen i blod, skriver New York Times. Etter 2015 har mange av cellene i brasilianske fengsler ingen gitter, og fangene kan i realiteten vandre fritt 24 timer i døgnet.
- Fengselssystemet er ikke forberedt på denne narkokrigen. Det er ikke plass til å skille gjengene fra hverandre. Systemet er overbefolket, og tendensen er at ting bare blir verre, sier Lincoln Gakiya til New York Times.


Det har vært hyppigere fengselsopptøyer etter at våpenhvilen mellom landets to største narkotikabander Primeiro Comando da Capital (PCC) og Comando Vermelho (CV) brøt sammen i juli i fjor. I tiden etter ha gjengene kjempet om kontrollen i flere brasilianske fengsler.

Lover penger

Det har vært en rekke voldelige hendelser i brasilianske fengsler på denne siden av nyttår. 1. og 2. januar ble 56 fanger drept i et fengsel nord i Amazonas. Der ble hoder lempet over murene, skriver New York Times.


Det sitter 622 000 mennesker i brasilianske fengsler, for det meste unge, sorte menn, ifølge Yahoo News. President Michel Temer har lovet 250 millioner dollar til opprustning og bygging av nye veier.


Mye av problemet kan knyttes til at gjengene dominerer de frittgående fengslene, hvor
myndighetene ikke er i stand til å tilby skikkelig beskyttelse til tusenvis av unge menn som kastes bak lås og slå hvert år. Eneste mulighet er å bli med i én av de mange gjengene som i realiteten kontrollerer hverdagen bak murene.
- Det er veldig trist, ikke bare på grunn av at mennesker er slaktet ned, men også fordi vi ser organisert kriminalitet stå ansikt til ansiktet med statsmakten og etterlate mentale og fysiske arr på fengselsbetjentene, sier politibetjent Eliabe Marques til New York Times.




Hells Angels: Questions fly after ‘Teflon biker’ gaming case fizzles



A high-profile, multimillion-dollar gambling bust three years ago has sent one Londoner to jail and two more to trial, but allowed the former head of the city’s Hells Angels to keep his clean record.
The quiet withdrawal of charges against Robert Barletta last fall, the same day his trial began, adds to his reputation as the “Teflon biker” but raises many questions, biker analyst Yves Lavigne said.
“It’s highly suspect that a case in which police spent so many resources would end with the Crown withdrawing charges,” he said.


No one could blame those in Ontario’s underworld for thinking either the police messed up or Barletta played some get-out-of-jail-free card, Lavigne said.
“How can the cops bring to court the former president of the London chapter of the Hells Angels without having done their job properly? It’s incredible to me the former president would be free.”
Barletta, as usual, isn’t talking either directly, or via his lawyer, Richard Posner of Toronto.
Neither man responded to Free Press attempts to get comments about the withdrawal of charges that made front-page news in the winter of 2013.


About 400 police officers raided a Markham Super Bowl party in February 2013, busting up a multimillion-dollar online gaming site called Platinum Sports book. Initial arrests were followed by raids a month later in 10 locations, including London, after which several London men faced charges.


The trial for Barletta and Andrew Bielli, also linked to the Hells Angels, began Sept. 12, 2016, in Toronto. Both pleaded not guilty to bookmaking for the benefit of a criminal organization and possessing proceeds of crime.


They then walked to another court to see Gordon Baird, 59, admit he was administrator of the illegal sports ring that grossed more than $103 million in 2009-13.

With no criminal record and because he pleaded guilty to bookmaking as participation in a criminal organization, Baird received an 18-month conditional sentence, to be served in his home, and a $400,000 fine.

Asked by the judge if was pressured by anyone to take the plea, Baird said, “No, sir.”
According to a clerk with the Superior Court of Justice, charges against Barletta were withdrawn the same day.


On Jan. 5, Bielli pleaded guilty to possessing property obtained by crime over $5,000 and was sentenced to 15 months in custody, the clerk said, in response to recent Free Press questions about the status of the trials.


Two other London men, David Hair and Christopher Rutledge, have trial dates set for January 2018.
There were no records in the computer system for two more London men charged in 2013, Jeffrey Fuchs and Hiesam Kadri, the clerk said.


Still facing trial is William (Billy) Miller, former president of the London chapter of Hells Angels, now living in Toronto.


Barletta has long balanced leadership in the Hells Angels with a squeaky clean record.
He was a founding member of the London chapter when it was established in 2003 and ran a strip club that became the target of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. A protracted legal battle ended with Barletta losing his liquor licence, despite not having a criminal record, because of his association with the Hells Angels.

Justitie- och migrationsminister Morgan Johansson (S) och Malmös kommunalråd Katrin Stjernfeldt Jammeh (S) kommer att delta i manifestationen som hålls i dag till minne av den 16-årige Ahmed Obaid som mördades på en busshållplats på Rosengård.
Sydsvenskans reporter på plats Kristin Nord berättar:
– Det samlas mer och mer folk här nu. Många ungdomar är på plats, säger hon.

Sydsvenskans reporter har pratat med några tjejer som gick på samma gymnasium som den mördade Ahmed Obaid.
– Det har varit jobbiga dagar nu. Det finns inga ord för det som har hänt, säger Balgeet Al-Baaj.

Manifestationen hålls under förmiddagen utanför stadshuset i Malmö.

Wafa Abbas är på plats: ”Jag är här för jag undrar hur vi ska skydda våra barn. Jag är jätteledsen säger hon.”

På en Facebook skriver arrangörerna: "Vågar vi lämna våra barn ensamma i Malmös gator?", och vidare: "Ta med era barn! Låt er röst bli hörd, bidra till en förändring".

På en annan sida berättar arrangörerna att de tänker överlämna krav till politikerna: fler poliser och mer resurser till polismyndigheten, fler övervaktningskameror, tuffare kontroller mot vapeninnehav och skärpta regler mot vapeninnehav, vapenbrott och mord.
"Det är hög tid för oss att stå upp tillsammas i en enad front för att återupprätta säkerheten och tryggheten i vår stad", skriver de.
