Stiff Gritty has potential



A lot of people have been very interested in this new video of HA associates trashing Madchild. I think Stiff Gritty has potential. His reference to Madchild carrying around a stuffed animal like a Yaletown slut was rather amusing. His reference to Madchild being a GHB predator nailed it. One has to remember who sold him the GHB but it is good to recognize that being a GHB predator is not a good thing. Tupac Shakur left us with the Ghetto Gospel after he died.

Tupac made reference to a homeless lady and another woman addicted to crack then said, "Tell me do you see that old lady, Ain't it sad, Living out of bags, Plus she's glad for the little things she has, And over there there's a lady, Crack got her crazy, Guess who's giving birth to a baby, I don't trip or let it fade me, From out of the fryin' pan, We jump into another form of slavery."

In another song called Changes Tupac responds to a crack dealer who said "I made a G today," then said "but you made it in a sleazy way Sellin' crack to the kids." Tupac didn't have a problem with pot, he had a problem with crack cocaine. So do I. We both saw what it does to people.

Trailrunner said that no one in the Madchild Diss video will ever amount to anything. Aside from being a tad harsh, I don't believe that is true. I think they all show potential. Speaking out against being an oxy junkie and a GHB predator shows potential.

Stiff Gritty's manger has a reputation for being a good guy. He sold pot in high school and was fair in his business dealings. No one cares about pot. It will soon be legal. Crack, fentanyl and crystal meth are the drugs that are killing society.

I would however caution them as to what they aspire to. The young girls in bikinis at the pool in the video look like normal girls who were simply their friends from high school. I dont want to be mean but the girls sitting on the bed in lingerie kinda looked like strippers or prostitutes. There isn't much of a long term future in that and I'm not sure that is where you want some of your female high school friends to end up.

We all know the pattern. First they recruit the girls to be strippers and invite them to parties where its all about strippers and blow. Then they get them hooked on harder drugs and get them working in the sex trade industry to pay for the drugs. After the drugs eat them alive and they can no longer make money in the industry they end up dead on the Picton Farm.

Jesse Hadden is a good guy. The after hours he ran across the street from the Pickton farm was fine. People would go there after Roosters closed. Piggy's Palace down the street was not. The members involved in that dive are pieces of garbage. They weren't just GHB predators, they would gang rape crack hos and kill them for drug debts.

Watch your ladies. Be careful what happens to your young female friends you introduce to club members. Make sure they don't end up crack hos dead on the Pickton farm. That wouldn't be loyal to your friendships. The reason why the old men on Viagra want you around is so you can bring young girls around their daughters age so they can sleep with them. Mind how you go.

Snak the Ripper also has potential. Repping the Stop down crew yo. I'm not saying we should all jump on the bandwagon and trash Madchild for being a b*tch. Like Fat Joe, his response to 50 Cent was a one time one time only. Fat Joe just set the record straight then moved on to other things. Likewise, these young guns can move on to other things after setting the record straight.

Gremium MC lukker og slukker i Tronheim


Det begyndte så godt for tyske Gremium MC i Norge, men det er gået alt andet end godt, for hvor man før var repræsenteret med fem afdelinger, er man i dag nede på kun tre afdelinger tilbage i Norge, og en af disse er såmænd ikke mere end et par stykker tilbage. 

Sidste år lukkede afdelingen Borderline ned, hvor alle afdelingens medlemmer i fællesskab valgte, at indlevere deres veste og samtidigt tog afsked med Gremium MC for good. Nu er det så sket igen, og denne gang er det afdelingen i Tronheim, som i fællesskab har valgt, at indlevere deres veste og træde ud af Gremium MC for good.

Kilder med stor indsigt i Gremium MC Norway fortæller, at der igennem i mere end et år har været så store interne uoverensstemmelser, at det nærmest har været uundgåeligt, at det ikke skulle ende med brud. 

Problemerne skyldes en meget lille personkreds i Gremium MC´s afdeling i Oslo, som har formået at lave så stor splid mellem sine egne, at selv omtalte afdelings President for nyligt skulle være blevet smidt ud i Bad Standing. 

Kilder fortæller til MC & Gjengkriminalitet, at der er tale om to tyske medlemmer i Gremium MC´s afdeling i Oslo, som er direkte skyld i alle de interne problemer, fordi de tror, at hele Gremium MC Norway drejer sig om dem, og de skal diktere og styre hele Gremium MC Norge.

Men som tingene nu er gået for Gremium MC Norway, der ser det nu snart mere ud til, at disse to selvudnævnte diktatorer måske snart selv indser, at de har kørt en stor og god klub i sænk i Norge, og måske må pakke deres rygsække, og tage retur til Tyskland, og her stå til regnskab for deres fejlslagne "invasion" i det norske NISSELAND.

Polisen: ”X-team är etablerat eller håller på att etablera sig i Kalmar”


Polischefen bekräftar: Bandidos-gruppen X-team vill in i Kalmar

Bandidos undergrupp X-team har etablerat sig, eller är på väg att göra det, i Kalmar.
Barometern var först med att berätta om att flera personer med kopplingar till X-team bor eller är skrivna i Kalmarområdet.

Tidningen har kartlagt de sex personer som i går begärdes häktade, misstänkta för en brutal misshandel i Linköping tidigt på söndagsmorgonen. Männen greps senare av polis i Kalmar län.
– Det vi känner till är att X-team har, eller försöker etablera sig, eller att det finns individer som sympatiserar med X-team i Kalmar, säger polisområdeschef Patrik Oldin till P4 Kalmar.
Hur vet ni det?
– Det är via underrättelser, att folk berättat det för oss eller iakttagelser som vi gör själva.
Hur allvarligt ser du på att det finns X-team-medlemmar i Kalmarområdet?
– Det beror lite på hur kriminellt aktiva de är men det är aldrig bra att de etablerar sig någonstans.


Så agerar du om Bandidos försöker pressa dig

En undergrupp till det kriminella mc-gänget Bandidos etablerar sig i Kalmar. Poliskommissarie Patrik Andersson vet mer om vilka de är – och hur du ska göra om de kontaktar dig. Det är undergruppen X-team som har etablerat sig, eller är på väg att göra det, i Kalmar. Det bekräftar polisen för P4 Kalmar.
– I detta fallet skulle jag mycket väl kunna tänka mig att det är Bandidos Ljungby som är ute för att expandera. Man försöker då lägga under sig större delar av Kronobergs och Kalmar län, säger Patrik Andersson, poliskommissarie vid polisens underrättelseenhet i Region Syd och expert på kriminella mc-gäng.

Hur ska polisen agera nu?
– De kommer fortsätta agera vidare. Det gör man med dels underrättelser, dels med de ingripanden man har gjort. Så polisen ligger på.

Säg att den här gruppen skulle kontakta mig som privatperson eller företagare, kanske genom att pressa mig på pengar. Vad ska jag göra då?
– Kontakta polisen omedelbart. Många gånger har vi märkt det, att de ska hämta in pengar för en uppdiktad skuld. De som då betalar initialt kommer uppleva att då återkommer de.

Feds hand down 54-count indictment to members of motorcycle gang

Dozens of indictments have been handed down to 12 members and associates of a motorcycle gang chapter in Middle Tennessee. The 54-count indictment for the racketeering conspiracy was unsealed during a news conference in Nashville on Thursday.

The suspects, who are all believed to be involved with the Clarksville chapter of the Mongols motorcycle gang, are accused of many crimes, including murder, kidnapping, extortion and large-scale drug trafficking.

Officials say the group met at various businesses and homes in Clarksville on a weekly basis. The members reportedly paid dues to support the club's criminal activities. Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued this statement about the investigation:
Gangs that conspire to spread illegal drugs like methamphetamine and lethal opioids, extort legitimate businesses, and wage violence on our fellow Americans will be held accountable by the Department of Justice. Last year, we secured the convictions of more than 1,200 gang members, and, as this case makes clear, we are not slowing down.
I want to thank the ATF and all of our incredible state, county, and local law enforcement partners who helped make today's indictment possible, including the Clarksville and Owensboro Police Departments, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and four county sheriff’s offices. Today’s indictment is the next step in our efforts to dismantle gangs and stop the spread of deadly drugs and violent crime.

Some of the crimes contained in the indictment include:
  • The arson of the Sin City Motorcycle Clubhouse in May 2015
  • Kidnapping two people at gunpoint and fatally shooting one of them in May 2015
  • Transporting at least 50 pounds of methamphetamine to Tennessee
  • The attempted murder of the member of another motorcycle club in July 2016
  • Kidnapping a woman from a hotel in Nashville in October 2016

Outlaws Motorcycle Club members charged with beating man in Bay City bar

Two members of a motorcycle club are facing criminal charges for allegedly beating a man in a bar after he slighted them. Just before 1 a.m. on Dec. 27, police responded to the Whyte Goose Inn, 108 State St. in Bay City, after a bartender called 911 to report an assault had just occurred. Bay County Central Dispatch relayed to the officers that two members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club (link is external) had caused a ruckus in the bar and had done so earlier in the night at Stables Martini & Cigar Bar, 804 E. Midland St.

The two subjects left the bar before officers arrived, separately driving away in a pickup truck and an SUV, court records show. Upon officers' arrival, they found a 49-year-old man lying facedown on the floor. The man complained of pain in his neck and back and said he was having difficulty feeling with one hand. He had also suffered two lacerations to the left side of his head. He was transported to McLaren Bay Region hospital for treatment, court records show.

Witnesses at the scene identified the assailants as Eric J. "Whiplash" Kerkau (also known by the surname Grzegorczyk), 46, and a 32-year-old cohort. They told police the victim had apparently had video of them on his cellphone, something which took exception with. Kerkau and his friend approached the man and told him he can't have images of them, as they are "black and white," referring to their club's colors, court records show.

The confrontation escalated to the point that the other biker exited the bar and tried goading the patron to follow him outside to fight. The man refused, prompting the biker to step back inside and, together with Kerkau, proceed to beat, punch, and kick him, witnesses told police.

Police later found one of the fleeing vehicles parked in the driveway of Kerkau's Bay City home. On Jan. 5, they stopped by Kerkau's place to speak with him about the incident, but he declined to comment without his lawyer present. Police also went to the other biker's last known address and found he no longer lived there.
Authorities issued warrants for Kerkau and the other man on Jan. 12. The same day, Kerkau voluntarily appeared in Bay County District Court for arraignment on one count of assault with intent to cause great bodily harm less than murder, a 10-year felony. The arraigning judge freed Kerkau on a personal recognizance bond and scheduled his case for a preliminary examination at 3 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

Kerkau's codefendant remains at large, wanted on the same charge.
The Outlaws Motorcycle Club was established in 1935 in McCook, Illinois. Since then, it has expanded to 28 countries. It has four Michigan chapters, including one in Bay City. In 2006, five members of the Bay City chapter were involved in a shootout with the Hell's Angels.

Through its website, the club is adamant that it is not a criminal organization.
"We may not live by the rules of society, but we do live by its laws," the site states.

OMCG arrests after being together in public place, SA



Three members of the Rebels Outlaw Motorcycle Gang have been arrested for being participants in a criminal organisation present in a public place, according to SA Police. The investigation by police will allege the three men were together on Saturday 13 January at a licensed premises in Glenelg.

Two of the men also breached bail conditions not to communicate with each other. A 40-year-old man from Seaton and a 34-year-old man from Redwood park were arrested and charged as participants in a criminal organisation being knowingly present in a public place, and breach of bail.

A 35-year-old man from Golden Grove was charged as a participant in a criminal organisation being knowingly present in public place with two or more other participants.

All three have been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 7 March. This offence was introduced to prevent members of known organised crime groups from coming together to plan and organise their criminal activities.

The laws are in place to protect the community from people who have no regard for public safety and whose behaviour is unacceptable to the wider community.

Tidligere gjengleder siktet i narkotikasak

Ifølge avisens opplysninger ble mannen i 30-årene pågrepet 22. november ved en barne- og ungdomsskole på Østlandet. Politiet mener mannen kan knyttes til befatning med fem kilo hasj i løpet av høsten i fjor. Han har siden sittet i varetekt.
– Han nekter straffskyld, sier mannens forsvarer Waqar Aslam Malik til VG.

Mannen er tidligere blant annet dømt til elleve års fengsel for to drapsforsøk i 2007. Ifølge dommen prøvde han å drepe en sentral skikkelse i B-gjengen og en annen mann på Furuset i Oslo. Mannen ble endelig løslatt fra fengsel like før jul i fjor, men han var løslatt på prøve forut for den tid.

I tillegg til den tidligere gjenglederen er seks menn og en kvinne siktet for grove narkotikaforbrytelser i tilknytning til narkotikasaken i Vestfold.

Kinfolk Motorcycle Club: The New Generation. Insane Throttle response to a hater

I always find it funny that when we put out an article about a particular club, right away the haters who might not agree with what we had to say, are out in mass trying to prove us wrong. We did an article on the Sultar Soldiers M/C the other day, in that article I argued those who are going around calling these clubs pop-ups and not following a set of rules, shouldn’t be ruled as such because a lot of the clubs I mentioned, contained members who were former members of the bigger 1%er clubs, got dissatisfied with where their former club was going, left, and got with some new brothers to form another club.

Well, the torches and mob came out of the woodwork as they usually do. They will start sending other articles and materials trying to dispute what I wrote about on a particular club. Well, the haters didn’t let us down. We opened an email crying and whining about the Kinfolk M/C, one we mentioned in that article. They gave some long drawn out hater response as they usually do and attach a link to another site to try to boost their case.

The link this time was to onepercentersbikers.com. Decent site if you would like to know the history of a certain club. The site I was directed to was on the Kinfolk M/C, gave all this history about where they started and what year. The site even included the Aging Rebel as a source for statements that were allegedly made at a Kinsfolk M/C National. They were all giddy because they were pointing out “If you don’t like cops like you claim, this club takes ex-cops and you’re out there fighting for them”.

First off, don’t need to stand up for any club Ass-Monkey, they can do that for themselves, secondly if you ever read my articles you would see me saying “As long as they get rid of the badge, then its a non issue for me because they are not acting like something they are not”.

I do find it funny sometimes these haters going around boasting that kind of argument. Afterall does no one remember Steven “Gorilla ” Mondevergine? You know. Ex-cop turned Pagan Boss? A pretty respectable guy in his time? If he was good for the Pagans who are you all to say that they were wrong? Just like clubs who are the Big 4 who has ex-police, who the hell are you ass-monkeys to go out there bashing on a new club that does the same thing the other Big 4 do?
From One Percenter Biker via this haters email
The following statements were published by the Aging Rebel website and are said to have come from the Kinfolk MC National meeting held on 15 October 2016:
“We are not like Bandidos. We are our own club and will not be run like a Dictatorship.”
“We do not discriminate against former police officers.”
“While we prefer American V-Twins the type of motorcycle is not important.”
“If a member has his membership revoked, he will not be placed on no contact. There will be no out in bad standing. Either you are a member or not.”
“Our prospective members will be called rookies, not prospects. Ingrain this in your brain.”
“The order of receiving their patches will be as follows for rookies. Bottom rocker two months. Center patch four months. Top rocker and 1%er diamond after six months.”
“You do not have to fly your patch if you feel you are in an uncomfortable area or it interferes with your job or position.”
“We will be selling a support patch that simply says ‘Kin.’”
“We had a meeting with the Mongols and Sons of Silence. We were well received and received their blessing even though they wanted no more 1% clubs in Colorado. They said that knowing who was involved in the leadership and the way we went about our business that they were impressed.”
The above statements indicate that although the Kinfolk Motorcycle Club wish to be known as a 1%er club, they do not feel as though they should have to run the club following the same set of “rules” that most one percenter clubs before them have followed. Of particular interest is the willingness of a one-percenter motorcycle club to take in former law enforcement.
Ok, so that is what was forwarded to us here at Insane Throttle Biker News. So, what the hell is wrong with what they had to say? Not much from my angle, they were former Bandidos, decided they no longer wanted to belong, went their individual ways. Yea still not getting the argument behind the hater’s email that they are a pop-up internet club. The founders were EX BANDIDOS.

To be a Bandido, you must complete a prospective period, they did that, they were with that club for years until they felt that club was no longer for them. They quit, went and started something else. Not like they were never apart of another club, didn’t put the work in to become a patch member, so what, they quit and did their own thing. What I’m I missing here? It even went as far as stating they went and talked with the Mongols and Sons of Silence for all those Protocol Hawks that want to nitpick on that angle. By the way, this is 2018, the protocol shit like I’ve said so many times in the past, it’s dead, watered down by the Internet, watered down by the haters who went around preaching something they had no idea what they were talking about. Guys who were never in a club, people who discovered that they could finally voice their holes and have someone pay attention to them because the internet allowed them to.

Let’s see what else the bitches are, oh ok, “While we prefer American V-Twins the type of motorcycle is not important.” The dude who emailed me all these states “How can they be a 1%er club if they allow members to ride anything but a Harley”. My response to that is simple. When was the last time a damn Harley jumped up, had your back in a bar, and took on the dude about to smack your ass over the head with a pool cue? If a bike ever did that, please, tell us about it,that scooter is one amazing piece of steel. Yea, most clubs want American Made Bikes, but I’d rather have a solid ass brother behind me in a jam than to be concerned about what the hell he is riding. It’s 2018, that Harley Davidson is a “Must” argument is out the door, shit, even Sonny Barger prefers a foreign bike over a Harley if that tells you anything.

Lastly, the dude in the email was all hot and bothered by the statement. “You do not have to fly your patch if you feel you are in an uncomfortable area or it interferes with your job or position.” The exact quote from this ass-monkey. “How can they be a 1%er club if they are afraid to show off their colors”? That one made me shake my head, it was obvious this dude never rode in a club. I’ve been around clubs all my life. Guys in 1%er clubs do not have their rags on 24/7. Most don’t wear them to work, and most clubs have the 2 man rule during wartime. Meaning, you must have another brother with you when you sport a rag. It’s a safety thing, plain and simple. It doesn’t make them any less of a member of that club because they choose not to wear the rag. Just makes them smarter because they know if they are going through unfriendly territory they won’t be getting jumped by 10 guys.

Here is some advice to those haters that want to write in just trying to give me their two cents. Don’t point me to other websites to make your argument for you. For starters, most of these sites rely on third parties for their information. They do not go to the source. Secondly, most of the biker sites have a noticeable slant to a base that keeps them going. This says that they write to a section of the culture that in no uncertain terms will go against their beliefs. Meaning, they always were raised and taught no matter what a 1%er club has done, proven or unproven, the club is always on the right.

They are not independent in their views, they chose to have their site lean only one way and that’s fine, but that doesn’t help your argument when you’re dealing with an Independent News Source who calls it based on facts and without a slant to one side or the other. Insane Throttle is a huge supporter of the 1%er clubs, you can go back and look through all the articles we’ve done on them. However, always remember, we might support them, but when we see something that is in our opinion wrong, we are going to call it out. If we didn’t do that, what kind of biker news site would we be if we didn’t stay straight down the middle and independent?

As far as the Kinfolk M/C. My straight up opinion is that they have their brotherhood, who am I or anyone else for that matter to tell them they have to follow some sort of fucked up rules to be considered a real club? We are bikers! Are we not suppose to be able to say “Fuck the Rules”? Looks to me that the Kinfolk M/C are doing just that, bucking this so-called system and doing it the way they think is best for them. If they can go out there and back their colors, back the brotherhood, then who the hell is the haters to tell them they are a pop-up club?

As I close up, word for thought. Every club that you see out there today, be it the famous Hells Angels or down to the smallest M/C. They at one time or another was a so-called pop-up club, do you really believe they just appeared out of thin air? No, a group of brothers with an idea came together and started it. Think about that next time you’re running around bashing on clubs and trying to write into biker news sites, especially independent ones who are not apart of the same mold as the others.

Hillsborough County firefighter gets the ax after investigators find ties to motorcycle gang

Hillsborough County officials fired a Fire Rescue medic Tuesday after an internal investigation concluded he had "unwavering loyalty" to the Outlaws Motorcycle Club — the state’s dominant biker gang. Clinton Neal Walker, 33, of Bradenton, is the first Hillsborough County employee to be investigated for gang activity under a series of county-wide ordinances sparked by Walker’s own arrest last September for starting a bar fight in Key West. The fight came just three months after he was placed on administrative leave for joining another bar brawl in May 2016, this time in St. Petersburg with a city police officer.

The ordinances prohibit county employees from gaining membership in any organization the state or federal government considers criminal, including the Outlaws St. Petersburg Chapter, where Walker remains an active member. Walker has been on paid administrative leave since his supervisors learned of his arrest in September, department spokesman Corey Dierdorff said. He has 10 days to appeal his involuntary dismissal to the county’s Civil Service Board.

The county’s investigative report shows Walker has a history of HR investigations into job misconduct dating back to October 2008, when he showed up to work about 45 minutes late with no explanation. Among the more serious accusations in the report: paid suspensions for carrying an illegal firearm while off duty; withholding evidence from sheriff’s deputies that tied the Outlaws to a shooting last July; and, last November, using his employment as a county firefighter to avoid getting arrested after arguing with a clerk at the Manatee County Tax Collector’s Office and with responding sheriff’s deputies.

The investigative report that resulted in Walker’s firing noted that he already was serving a 240-hour suspension for his Key West arrest when he dressed in his fire rescue uniform on July 25 to fraudulently collect evidence from a fellow gang member involved in a shooting.

A responding EMT had called Walker to tell him that the president of the Outlaws St. Petersburg Chapter, James Costa, was shot while riding his motorcycle on U.S. Highway 41 in south Hillsborough. Costa also worked for Hillsborough County Fire Rescue until retiring as a Fire Captain in 2016 following media reports that publicized his ties to the gang.

Though he wasn’t on duty, Walker met fire rescue crews at the scene of the shooting, jumped into the back of Costa’s ambulance and changed into his Fire Rescue uniform while accompanying Costa to the hospital, the report said. Walker never offered to help the responding rescue crews. Instead he took Costa’s belongings, including his motorcycle vest with the Outlaws Motorcycle Club patch and insignia, and hid them in his car, the report said.
"Mr. Walker would not have been able to take possession of the OMC patch and insignias if he was considered an outsider, especially since numerous OMC members were at the hospital that night," wrote James Orr, a former FBI agent who did the investigation. "... In response, Mr. Walker would state that he was acting as a friend, taking Mr. Costa’s property for safekeeping to release it to his wife."

Walker initially refused to provide the vest to sheriff’s deputies even when told it needed to be processed as evidence in a felony case, the report said. Walker only surrendered the vest when a Manatee County Sheriff’s corporal agreed to simply photograph it and then turn it over to Costa’s wife, the report said.

Deputies told Orr that Walker was joined by about 10 known Outlaw members at the hospital and joined them in repeated attempts at pressuring deputies to turn over Costa’s belt, which had OMC insignia on its buckle and imprinted on the leather.
"Mr. Walker wore his uniform to gain unauthorized access and he utilized his position as a uniformed firefighter for personal reasons/gain," the report said.

The Sheriff’s Office has yet to finish their investigating into Costa’s shooting. Walker still faces one pending criminal misdemeanor charge for injuring two employees at the Key West bar.

The Pagan's Motorcycle Club still rides, wreaks havoc at Jersey Shore

The Pagan’s Motorcycle Club was never the biggest outlaw motorcycle club in the nation, but members liked to think that, pound-for-pound, none was tougher.
 
Three Pagans, one former member said, could “do anything,” and if there are more, well, that’s even better, or worse for whoever is in their way.
“You give me six good Pagans and I could take over the country,” said James “Jimmy D” DeGregorio, a former high-ranking member of the Pagans in the South Jersey and Philadelphia area.
“They are a hard-core gang. Period. Small but mighty.”
 
The PMC, founded in Maryland in 1959,  was back in the news last week at the Jersey Shore for the usual reasons: accusations of drug dealing, murder plots, and an old, familiar problem that’s plagued the group for decades: undercover agents and confidential informants recording them.
“It’s insane,” DeGregorio said. “It always happens. There ain’t a cop in the world that didn’t bust a case without someone on the inside. The thing that makes a good detective is a good snitch.”

DeGregorio spent time in prison for shooting a bodyguard for late Philadelphia mob boss Phil “Chicken Man” Testa. He has also testified against PMC members. Now he lives in Florida.

The Pagans’ latest brush with the law involves an unlikely accomplice, Dr. James Kauffman, an endocrinologist accused of  running a vast, prescription-drug ring out of his Egg Harbor Township office with the club’s help. Authorities say Kauffman, with the Pagans’ aid, arranged the murder of his wife, April, in May 2012, out of fear she would expose the enterprise.

Those same Pagans who helped Kauffman, authorities said, plotted to kill him in the Atlantic County jail after he was arrested on weapons charges this past June.  The top Pagan implicated in the Kauffman case, Ferdinand “Freddy” Augello, cuts a clean appearance, at least on Facebook, where many Pagans flaunt their affiliations. There are no pictures of motorcycles, or Augello wearing the Pagans’ “colors,” the patches they wear on denim vests with an image of the Norse god Surtr sewn on.

Biker murder trial: Videos show accused youth pacing outside club

The jury in the shooting death of a London bike gang member viewed a video on Monday of the crucial seconds leading up to the incident. The youth accused of first-degree murder is seen pacing back and forth in front of four security cameras just outside the after-hours club run by the victim, Steve Sinclair.

But just before 5 a.m, the youth dons a glove, appears to pull something from his clothing and strides quickly across the view of a security camera. Sgt. James MacLachlan, the London police detective who analysed hours of security video, said the accused youth seemed to be walking “purposefully” after a couple of hours of casually strolling around the property.

The audio then picks up the sound of three gunshots, but an image of the shooting is not captured by any of the four cameras. A 17-year-old Hamilton teen has pleaded not guilty in the death of Sinclair, a 49-year-old sheet metal worker and member of the Gate Keepers, a support club for the Hells Angels.

The defence lawyers for the youth do not dispute he is the person seen in the video.
The name of the youth, who was 15 at the time of the shooting on Sept. 6, 2015, cannot be published under Canada's youth justice law. MacLachlan said there are a number of people seen on the video walking around the parking lot over the course of several hours, but the accused youth was the only one wearing a hooded sweatshirt.

While the moment of the shot was not captured on video, other witnesses who testified Monday say they say a male wearing a hoodie raise his arm and shoot. Miranda Ford, a patron of the unlicensed after-hours club known as The Lounge, said she heard someone say something “aggressive” to Sinclair. She said then saw a tall thin male in a hoodie raise his arm and fire shots.

Bilal Taj, a taxi driver who was parked in the lot, also testified he heard the shots and looked up as the hooded male fired the final shot. The trial continues Wednesday with testimony from Hamilton police officers who arrested the youth in that city about a week after the shooting.

Three men charged in Michael Bonin's murder



Global is reporting that "Three men have now been charged in the death of a 20-year-old man from Alberta last year. The body of Michael Bonin, from Rycroft Alberta, was discovered on a rural forest service road north of Hope, B.C. on April 20, 2017. This past weekend, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) and partner agencies arrested 26-year-old Ryan Watt, 20-year-old Joshua Fleurant and 27-year-old Jared Jorgenson. All three have now been charged with first-degree murder, and will appear in a court in B.C. on Monday."

In 2015 Castanet reported that Joshua Fleurant was arrested in a Kelowna car theft ring. Johnny Newcome was busted in Kelowna for a huge stolen car ring tied to the HAs. CBC is reporting that Michael Bonin was a native of Prince George. We know the HAs control the drug trade in PG.

Kamloops Info News is reporting that the three men charged in Micheal's murder will be appearing in Kelowna court. "Fleurant also appears to have known Bonin. They were both charged with theft of a vehicle from Kamloops among other charges."

The 15 year old bystander hit in a Vancouver shooting has died.

A new beginning: The Sutars Soldiers Motorcycle Club on the rise. A true story of real brotherhood against all odds.

Insane Throttle Biker news has been following a little-known club on the East Coast, one with a hell of a story behind its beginnings. It’s known as the Sutars Soldiers M/C and was founded by the ex-National President of the Pagans DENNIS ROOSTER KATONA. The story starts out on July 1st, 2011 when officials raided Roosters house on a bunch of bullshit charges.

Here is one of the original newspaper articles on the incident.
http://triblive.com/x/pittsburghtrib/news/westmoreland/s_744789.html

After being arrested and going through all the court shit, it was soon revealed that members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club wore wires to set up Rooster and many of his associates that make up the Sutars Soldiers M/C. Think about it, those who you called brother working against you with cops so they can get out of whatever bullshit they put themselves into. This is the type of world we are now living in, be the gangster until the cops come down on your ass, then cut a deal on your brothers to get out of it.

I must admit as I followed the case of Rooster, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing most of the time. The Pagans M/C were one of the premier top of the line hardcore 1%er clubs . But to see what was happening to the National Boss and Associates blew that narrative right out of the water for me. I couldn’t fathom a Pagan turning on another Pagan, after all, the Pagans were the elite unit who’s secrecy has been a legend in the motorcycling community.

Rooster was found guilty of intent to distribute a controlled substance at a bench trial in Pennsylvania state court in 2014 and was sentenced to 3-to-7 year prison sentence resulting from the rat setting him up and working with the government. We are proud to report that Rooster won his appeal and was set free because of the abuse of warrant powers . Sound familiar? Why the case the FBI did against Trump should resonate with every American Citizen. The American citizen does not realize just how uncontrolled this government really is, in the two following videos you can see the appeals court smacking down the government in the way they went about setting up Rooster.

The Sultan Soldiers about us section on their website states.

Sutars Soldiers MC is a 1%er motorcycle club comprised of former members of the Pagan’s MC. Founded by former National President Dennis “Rooster” Katona, former Chapter Presidents, and former Loyal members dedicated to old school principals of Brotherhood, Loyalty, Trust, and Honor.

We have NO association with the Pagan’s MC or their support clubs and We wish them well in their endeavors.” For those who would claim that they are a pop-up club, a club that did not follow proper protocol are all full of shit. Plain and simple. I bring that up because I’ve seen numerous websites that call themselves “Biker News” sites report that kind of crap. These are a group of brothers that were more than disenfranchised with their former club and started their own thing for a damn good reason.

I’d be out there to start my own thing if people I called brothers turned states evidence against me.
Pop up clubs is a subject that always burns the shit out of me. Especially in the case of the Sutars Soldiers or even in the cases of Cossacks and Kinfolk M/C. The members of these clubs sometimes put almost 20 years into their former clubs, blood sweat and tears into them. But for some reason or another these men left because of something that transpired and left a bad taste in their mouth so they decide to leave and start something that was more in line with what they thought brotherhood should be.

Here’s what makes up the critics of these new clubs. Internet keyboard warriors who never rode in a damn club, supporters of one club or another, or assholes who just have no idea what the hell they are talking about. With the internet, things have changed with clubs, good and bad. What shouldn’t be happening is these internet ass-monkeys causing problems between clubs. Know it or not, they are the ones causing and driving all the rivalries between clubs. If you’re one of those people that I just described, get a fucking life, get a bike and be a man, go prospect for a club then run your mouth like you know something. Until then, shut the fuck up because your getting men killed.

The Sultan Soldiers have welcomed to their club PENNSYLVANIA, OHIO, WVa, MD, NY, VIRGINIA. They also have a chapter in Germany. To show these guys some love, go to their website where you can purchase some support gear. After all these guys have gone through, I know the support will be greatly appreciated. We hope to see them grow and prosper in the years to come. Hopefully, we can get one of them on the Motorcycle Madhouse to share with us all the crap they had to go through to get to where they are today.

81 Madchild Diss



Well it looks like the Big Red Machine have sucked out all the money they can from Madchild and have cast him aside like an old shoe. When the money is gone so are they. With friends like that, who needs enemies. GHB predator? Who the f*ck do you think sold it to him? The Battle Axe Barbies have left the house. The new kids are on the block.



This is what I mean about fake news. The police brag about busting a tiny rival with one SKS, a shotgun and a spudun when they stand by and watch this stash of weapons. Do the math. The PoPo haven't lifted a finger to bust the HAs since the OMGU was disbanded.



Spike's place made a video yo - Haney Hawgs.



They even have the Haney Clubhouse at the end of a video.



From Haney to Hellside, Alberta the PoPo suck. F*ck Ktown.

Outlaws Murder Defendant Gets Prosecution's Witness List

It's been practically two months since Jeremy Boshears, a member of the Joliet Outlaws motorcycle riding club, was booked into Will County's Adult Detention Facility in connection with the disappearance and murder of Katie Kearns, a 24-year-old Joliet bartender. A $10 million bond was put in place against the former Joliet resident who lived in Coal City and worked in Frankfort for S&J Door at the time of the November murder. Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow aims to prove that Boshears is a cold-blooded and calculating killer. The $10 million bond virtually assures the public that Boshears won't be getting out of lockup before any trial. Joliet attorney Neil Patel recently informed the court his client maintains he is innocent.

In October, Kearns began tending bar once a week at Woody's Bar on Joliet's East Washington Street. She was driving into Joliet from out by Mokena. On Sunday night, Nov. 12, she disappeared after leaving Woody's. A few days later, the Will County Sheriff's Department found her dead body inside the back of the Jeep she drove. The vehicle turned up about an hour southeast of Joliet in rural Kankakee County. She was fatally shot in the head. Boshears was taken into Will County's custody and he has remained in jail ever since.

Recently, Assistant Will County State's Attorney Steven Platek began sharing the prosecution's files with Patel, the criminal defense lawyer at the Law Office of Chuck Bretz & Associates. Court documents show that more than 50 people "may be called to testify on behalf of the People of the State of Illinois" against Boshears. He faces three counts of first-degree murder all stemming from the slaying of Kearns, who recently began a romance with the married man affiliated with the Joliet Outlaws motorcycle club. Patel told reporters in November that Boshears had been married about 10 years.

An elite chapter of the Hells Angels has indeed returned to the capital region, the Ontario Provincial Police confirm.
The Nomads have resumed operations in the same clubhouse on Piperville Road that they abandoned in 2016 in an abrupt disbanding of the Ottawa chapter.


The OPP could not say why the bikers have returned, but said they continue to monitor the outlaw motorcycle gang.

Radio-Canada reported this week that the Nomads had resurged in Ottawa since “violent in-fighting in the summer of 2016 forced them to lie low.” Radio-Canada, citing anonymous police sources, reported that the “Ottawa-based Nomads chapter recently obtained a new charter from the Hells Angels, but will need to be careful not to encroach on territory ruled by Quebec Hells Angels.”
The OPP’s biker enforcement unit believes the comeback has been recent, with the Nomads returning to the area in the new year.





The chapter hasn’t had an official presence in Ottawa since August 2016, one month after hosting a national Angels convention that saw hundreds of confirmed members and supporters gather in the capital region. The chapter was then abruptly shut down by the Angels. The OPP, at the time, wouldn’t speculate about why the move was made.

Radio-Canada reported this week that disputed drug territory and profits created years of bad blood between the Sherbrooke Hells Angels in Quebec and the Ottawa Nomads. And that the Nomads disbanded when the Quebec chapter won out.

Recent estimates suggest there about 170 full-patch Angels in Ontario. About 100 others would be considered “hangarounds” and prospects. The Ottawa-based Nomads were founded by Paul “Sasquatch” Porter, who led a mass defection from the Rock Machine during Quebec’s biker war, a bloody turf war that lasted nearly a decade from the mid-’90s to the early 2000s. Porter survived two assassination attempts.

In April 2016, just months before the Nomads were disbanded, Phillip Boudreault, the chapter’s vice-president and a former Olympic boxer, was shot while riding his motorcycle in Lachute, Que.
The infamous Nomads clubhouse in Carlsbad Springs was also used by the Red Devils Motorcycle Club, a puppet club for the Angels. That club has continued to have a presence in the region even since the Nomads closed up shop.

Rockerveteranen 'Fehår' tiltalt: Risikerer livstid

Den 55-årige Hells Angels-rocker Jørgen Rinke – kendt som 'Fehår' – risikerer at skulle sidde i fængsel resten af sit liv. Københavns Politi har rejst tiltale mod toprockeren for at være bagmand i en større hashliga.

Efter fire år i frihed risikerer den drabsdømte HA-rocker Jørgen 'Fehår' Rinke en alvorlig dom for omfattende handel med hash.

Københavns Politi har valgt at rejse tiltale mod Fehår som led i en større hash-sag. HA-rockeren er mere konkret tiltalt for at være en af bagmændene i en ring af hashhandlere, der ifølge politiet står bag handel med store mængder hash og cannabisprodukter i Pusherstreet på Christiania.

Fehår blev anholdt i april under en stor politiaktion, hvor 21 adresser i Københavnsområdet blev ransaget. Under ransagningerne beslaglagde politiet 755.000 kroner i kontanter, guldringe, en pistol med skarp ammunition, en signalpistol, peberspray, politiuniformer, en ny Harley Davidson motorcykel, tre kilo hash og 1.000 joints.

Fehår har siden anholdelsen været varetægtsfængslet, og blev i forbindelse med grundlovsforhøret beskyttet af et navneforbud. Det navneforbud er nu ophævet.

Anholdelserne var resultat af en målrettet efterforskning, hvor politiet fulgte pengene fra hashsalget i Pusherstreet. Pengene førte tilsyneladende politiet hen til Hells Angels klubhus i Siljangade 10 på Amager.

Under en politiaktion 14. november anholdt politiet et andet 54-årigt medlem af Hells Angels afdeling på Amager. Han er nu tiltalt i samme sag som Fehår. I alt er otte personer anholdt i sagen.

Jørgen Rinke, der tidligere hed Jørgen Nielsen, er en af de gamle veteraner i Hells Angels. Han var en af de seks Hells Angels-rockere, der skød Bandidos-rockeren Uffe Larsen foran Kastrup Lufthavn 10. marts 1996. Lufthavnsdrabet regnes for at være startskuddet til 1990ernes blodige rockerkrig mellem Hells Angels og Bandidos, der førte til fem drab og 40 drabsforsøg.

Fehår blev først frikendt for lufthavnsdrabet, men på baggrund af en aflytning af den nu afdøde HA-rocker Michael Broksides indsmuglede telefon i fængslet, blev sagen taget op af den særlige klageret og Fehår blev idømt livstid.

BT lavede et interview med Fehår tilbage i 2012, da han stadig sad fængslet for drabet på Uffe Larsen. Dengang havde han fået afslag på prøveløsladelse, men fik lov til at forlade fængslet i Østjylland hver dag for at tage på arbejde i en håndværkervirksomhed på Fyn.

»Man siger, at jeg er farlig fra kl. 18 til kl. 6, men fra kl. 6 om morgenen til kl. 18 er jeg ikke farlig. Det hænger ikke sammen,« sagde han.

Kontorchef i Kriminalforsorgen Tina Engelbrecht Ising begrundede afslaget med, at man frygtede han ville falde tilbage i ny kriminalitet.

»Vi mener, at der er risiko for tilbagefald til kriminalitet. Der er tale om en mand, der har begået en meget grov forbrydelse,« sagde hun til BT i 2012.

27. juni 2013 blev Jørgen Rinke løsladt efter godt 17 år i fængsel.
»Jeg er selvfølgelig lettet efter så mange år,« sagde han dengang til BT.

Hvis Jørgen Rinke bliver dømt for at være hashbagmand på Christiania, risikerer hans livstidsdom at blive genaktiveret.

Global is reporting that pig sh*t Jamie Bacon was denied bail today. This will give the court time to hear the Appeal of his Surrey Six charges being stayed and a chance for the courts to rebuild the public's shatterd trust. When they clown was out, he had 24 hour police protection. Now the clown still has police protection because everyone knows as soon as he gets out of jail he is a dead man.

Twin Peaks Lawyer Quits

Yesterday, Casie Lynn Gotro, the eccentric Houston lawyer who defended Dallas Bandido Christopher Jacob Carrizal at his five-week-long trial last October and November. withdrew from the case. Carrizal was charged with so many crimes it took an assistant district attorney more than 20 minutes to read them all. Simply stated, Carrizal was accused of instigating multiple assaults and murders on behalf of his motorcycle club at the Waco Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17, 2015. The trial jury hung and Judge Matt Johnson declared a mistrial. Carrizal will probably be retried in April, If the long-delayed case actually does go forward, Carrizal will be represented by somebody new.

Doctor ordered radio host wife's killing to protect illegal drug ring, prosecutors say

A New Jersey endocrinologist hired a member of a motorcycle gang to kill his wife more than five years ago after she threatened to expose an illegal prescription drug ring the doctor was running with the gang, prosecutors said Tuesday. Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon Tyner announced murder charges against James Kauffman, 68, in the May 2012 death of his wife, April. Ferdinand Augello, 61, a member of the Pagan Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, was also charged with murder in April Kauffman's death -- and was also charged with trying to have James Kauffman killed.

Six other members of the gang were charged in connection with the drug ring.
Prosecutors said that Kauffman gave free prescriptions to people sent by Augello and that Augello would receive $1,000 per script or a number of pills after the script was filled. Those that received them either used the drugs or sold them. Tyner told reporters that April Kaufman, a local radio personality who hosted a weekly program in the Atlantic City market, had threatened to divorce her husband over the scheme.
"As a result of April Kauffman's desire to divorce James Kauffman, he was intent to have her killed,"
Tyner said, "as opposed to losing his 'financial empire,' as he described it to several individuals."

April Kauffman, 47, was found dead of multiple gunshot wounds in the bedroom of the couple's Linwood home on the morning of May 10, 2012. Tyner identified the triggerman as Francis "Frank" Mulholland and said he was paid at least $20,000 by James Kauffman and Augello. Mulholland died of a drug overdose in October 2013, Tyner said.

James Kauffman was arrested this past June on weapons charges after authorities raided and shut down his Egg Harbor Township practice in connection with his wife's murder in addition to an ongoing health care fraud investigation.

Authorities said Kauffman brandished a handgun and yelled, "I'm not going to jail for this" as the raid was in progress. Ed Jacobs, an attorney for Kauffman, told Philly.com (link is external) that his client "has consistently denied any involvement whatsoever in the homicide of his wife."

Kimberly Pack, April Kauffman's daughter who had long alleged that her stepfather killed her moth, told reporters Tuesday that her mother's death "forever changed my life." Pack had earlier fought a legal battle against her stepfather sparked by his attempts to claim April Kauffman's two life insurance policies. His claim was turned down because prosecutors couldn't provide a letter saying he wasn't considered a suspect.
"I have been waiting patiently for justice, and today I was lucky enough to be granted justice," Pack said. "I think for the first time, today I can actually breathe."

Man sentenced in motorcycle club killing gets more time to appeal

A judge Monday provided more time for a Battle Creek man to appeal his plea in a six-year-old murder case. An attorney for Marion Barroso asked to reset the clock for a possible appeal (link is external) of his manslaughter conviction.

Barroso, 69, was sentenced Sept. 21, 2015 to five years and 11 months to 15 years in prison after entering a no contest plea to manslaughter in the Jan. 1, 2012 death of Leeroy Taylor at the Iron Coffin Motorcycle Club in Battle Creek.

But lawyers argued last year (link is external)that Barroso never had the opportunity to appeal his case because he was never appointed an appeals attorney. Investigators later determined that someone wrote “he does not want a court appointed attorney” on a court paper he was given at sentencing explaining his appellate rights. Because of the notation, the file was closed.

In August Barroso told Circuit Judge John Hallacy that he did want to appeal and was awaiting appointment of an attorney. But deadlines for any appeals ended before anyone learned the case was closed because of the line written on the court form. Barroso said he didn’t write on the form and no one is sure who did.

Hallacy agreed last year that Barroso could have an attorney and could begin his appeal process.
But Monday, attorney John Zevalking of Grand Rapids, asked the judge to make another modification in his ruling, asking the court to reissue the judgment of sentence which would begin the appeals deadlines as though Barroso was just sentenced.

Zevalking said the change would allow his client to begin anew and permit motions in the circuit court as well as the Michigan Court of Appeals.
"It would give him the full opportunity to pursue post-conviction appellate relief," Zevalking said.

Outside the courtroom, Zevalking said he is just beginning to review transcripts and is not sure what issues might be raised in an appeal.

More: Judge grants appeals attorney to Marion Barroso in motorcycle club killing case (link is external)

Taylor, 45, the former president of the motorcycle club and president of the Jackson County Iron Coffins, was found dead inside the Battle Creek club at 15 Gilbert St. Battle Creek police said he was fatally injured during a fight with two other members, Matthew Starkweather and John Lindahl III, apparently over money owed to Starkweather.

Investigators alleged that Barroso helped the other two men by ordering people out of the club and then handing a shotgun to Lindahl which was used to hit Taylor in the head. Then Barroso allegedly took the shotgun and other weapons to a private residence, investigators alleged.

Starkweather and Lindahl were charged, and Barroso was expected to testify against them, but all charges were dismissed after Barroso gave inconsistent testimony. In 2015, Barroso was charged with murder and, a few months later, entered his plea. Starkweather eventually pleaded no contest to assault with intent to do great bodily harm and was sentenced to the 405 days he had served in jail. Lindahl was not charged.

Funeral procession for the Outlaws M.C. Chapter President Paul Anderson



Paul Anderson. Anderson, forty-four years old, was the President of the Cross Bayou Chapter.

Deadly dilemma: Gangster who shot Hells Angel told kill yourself, be killed or we kill your family

Hours after shooting Hells Angel Bob Green, Jason Wallace found himself alone with an unimaginable choice. Devastated, drunk and high on drugs, the 856 gangster had driven to a spot near Harrison Lake where he had previously camped.

He called his friend Justin to talk. But someone else took over the phone.
The mystery man gave Wallace two options: He could kill himself. Or he could turn himself in to the Hells Angels and they would do it for him. If he didn’t, his family would be executed. It took Wallace until the next day — Oct. 17, 2016 — to make a different choice.

Just after 9:30 a.m., he placed a distraught 911 call during which he confessed to killing Green at a drug-fuelled 19-hour party in a makeshift gang clubhouse. And he told police his family was in danger.

Wallace was arrested and charged with second-degree murder, saving himself from the biker threats to his life. His close friend Shaun Clary, who brought to the party the gun that Wallace fired in Green’s direction, was not so lucky. Clary’s dismembered body was found on Robertson Crescent in Langley, 10 days after the high-profile Hells Angels’ slaying.

Senior B.C. Hells Angel Bob Green was shot to death. PNG

Shocking new details about the night Green died are revealed in court documents obtained by Postmedia News from Wallace’s surprise guilty plea and sentencing hearing in November.

Surrey provincial court Judge Ellen Gordon handed the longtime criminal 6½ years for manslaughter. The original murder charge was dropped. The documents provide the likely motive for Clary’s grisly demise — he was part of a drunken dispute that led Wallace to grab Clary’s loaded handgun and fire it, striking an intoxicated Green in the head.

On the day of Wallace’s guilty plea, the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team said publicly for the first time that the Clary murder and the Green shooting were linked. But IHIT provided no details about how the deaths were connected.

It was just after 3 p.m. on Oct. 15, 2016, when Green, Wallace, his brother Taylor, Clary and several others arrived at the 856 Gang’s makeshift clubhouse, in a rented Quonset hut on a rural Langley acreage at 23788 72nd Ave.
They were ready to party. There was booze, cocaine, GHB, MDMA, ketamine and nitrous oxide (laughing gas). They were inhaling the gas from balloons that Clary was in charge of filling from gas canisters.

Green, 56, had been associated to the 856 Gang since its formation in the mid-2000s, through his cousin Lenny Pelletier and Pelletier’s son Caylen. The Pelletiers were also close to Wallace, who was then 27. In fact, the elder Pelletier and Wallace were co-accused in a drug trafficking case and were out on bail the night of the fatal party.

Closed-circuit cameras fixed on the exterior of the Quonset hut showed the comings and goings over the critical 20 hours on Oct. 15 and 16. Just before 8 p.m. on Oct. 15, Wallace, his brother, Green and two others left the hut, driving off in Green’s Chevy Suburban. They returned almost four hours later and continued inhaling from their gas balloons.

Green, meanwhile, had called his friend Mandev Johal telling him that he would need a ride home that night. Johal left Vancouver and picked up a friend in Burnaby before heading out to the 856 clubhouse to drive Green home.

Those gathered inside the two-storey Quonset hut left again, about 1 a.m., after sucking in nitrous oxide for another hour. Green’s Suburban is seen on the surveillance footage, followed by Johal’s Tahoe, arriving back at the clubhouse just after 2 a.m.
“The males were seen hugging each other and shaking hands as they all entered the Quonset hut,” said the agreed statement of facts read at Wallace’s sentencing hearing by Crown prosecutor Dianne Wiedemann.
“Inside the Quonset hut, one of the associates of the 856 Gang, Mr. Clary, tended the bar. Clary poured drinks and filled balloons with nitrous gas, which was being inhaled by the other partygoers.

Cocaine was also being used.
Two men were seen leaving the hut at 2:37 a.m. on Oct. 16. Green, Jason Wallace, Taylor Wallace, Clary, Johal and his friend remained inside, where they continued to consume alcohol, cocaine and nitrous oxide gas.

At 6 a.m., Johal called Cover Girls Escorts and asked for two women to be sent over, the statement of facts said. Cover Girls advertises its “elite companions and exotic dancers” online for $300 an hour or $1,000 for four hours.

The women arrived at about 7:18 a.m., each dropped off by her own driver. Half an hour later, Jason Wallace can be seen on video running out of the building with an inflated balloon of nitrous oxide. At that point, he would have been partying for almost 17 hours straight.

He bends over and stumbles as if vomiting or coughing, then walks into the woods.
“Clary runs back and forth from the Quonset hut to where Wallace had gone. At 7:56 a.m., the two embraced and then both walked back into the hut,” the document stated.

Johal told authorities that “as the drinking and gas inhalation continued inside the hut … the vibe started to change.”
“Johal felt as though the younger males, including the accused Wallace, his brother Taylor and Clary, had something against him,” the statement of facts said. Johal said the 856 gangsters were making racial comments to him. He thought they were trying to impress Green — a 20-year Hells Angel who was with the Mission City charter when he died.
“As the party progressed, one of the younger males moved one of the compressed gas cylinders upstairs and the party moved to the second floor of the Quonset hut.”

Taylor Wallace and Johal’s Burnaby friend crashed on the lower floor of the clubhouse. Johal felt that the demeanour of the gangsters was changing as they were doing more and more nitrous gas while still drinking.
“Johal believed the younger males were loaded and later described their judgment as ‘totally f–ked OK, they’re loaded, no control. It’s one thing to drink and be hammered, but there’s no control there obviously,’” the documents said.

Johal believed the gas made them delusional.
As tensions grew, one of the younger men there said words like ‘I’m going to get you,’ and then pulled something from the couch.
“As this happened, another one of the younger males swung at Johal. Johal blocked the punch and in one motion, got up and ran towards the exit of the Quonset hut.”

As he ran, Johal heard Green say: “Hey, what are you doing?” Johal thought he was being chased and ran off into a field as he called 911. It was just after 10 a.m. The two escorts remained at the party. One of them named Autumn later said that Green argued with one of the younger guys, who pulled out a gun.
“Green was challenging the male saying something to the effect of, `You cannot kill me,’ and then: ‘Shoot me if you can, shoot me if you can, you’re never gonna do it, shoot me if you can,’ ” the documents said.

Jason Wallace was so out of it, he later told police, that he didn’t think the escorts were there when the shooting happened.
“It was Wallace’s perception, admittedly compromised in large part by intoxication, that the argument was between Clary and Johal, and others were present but he cannot recall who those others were,” the documents said. “He believes there was a group that he perceived to be on the Johal side of the argument and he and Clary on another. Wallace cannot recall any actual physical altercation but cannot deny one occurred. He simply was unaware of it.”

Wallace told police that he and Clary were behind the couch where Green was seated and that Johal and others were on the other end of the couch from Green.

He thought some of the others were coming at him. He said he saw Clary put his hand on a gun in his waistband.
“Wallace then grabbed the gun. He worked the slide to cock it and the gun went off striking Green.


Wallace then fired in the direction of the feet of the others and Green somehow fell into or was struck by the second shot which was not intended to do more than frighten others and move them away from advancing.”
“The shots were virtually one, instantly followed by the second.”

The Crown accepted Wallace’s statement that “Green was never an intended target and the gun was intended to only back away a perceived threat.” Wallace had a gun in his vehicle, but had not taken it into the party.
“The gun used in the shooting of Green had been brought in by Clary. Wallace believes he dropped that gun immediately upon realizing his friend Green had been shot. Wallace immediately left the scene and was not involved in any clean up of the scene.”

Green was shot at 10:09 on the morning of Oct. 16.
Immediately afterwards, Wallace is seen on the video footage walking out of the Quonset hut. He had an inflated balloon. His brother is following him, also carrying a balloon and a black and blue duffel bag. Wallace fumbles as he puts on his hoodie while talking to Clary outside.

The killer then gets into his Pontiac G8 and takes off.
“Neighbours observed Wallace accelerate down the road looking anxious,” the court documents said.
Wallace’s brother leaves in another vehicle. Johal’s friend also leaves just before Clary gets into Green’s Suburban, picking up the Burnaby man on his way out. The escorts get picked up at 10:23 a.m. by two drivers.

Almost 30 minutes after Johal called 911, police were dispatched. They picked up Johal in the 7000-block of 240th Street, then headed to the Quonset hut.

Officers arrived about 11 a.m. They found Green slouched over on the second-floor couch.
“Green was not breathing and his skin looked pale and was turning bluish. There was blood all over the couch and blood smeared on Green’s right temple. Police performed CPR on Green.”


Paramedics got there at 11:16 a.m. and took over the CPR. But the biker had no pulse and was still not breathing. He was pronounced dead at 11:30 a.m.

Early the next morning, neighbours watched with curiosity as a woman and small children ran from a house Jason Wallace owned in Abbotsford. They left breakfast sitting on the table. Wallace had bought the home just six months earlier for $600,000. He listed his profession as a concrete designer.

The same neighbours saw police descend on the residence later in the day after Wallace turned himself in. During his desperate 911 call that morning, Wallace told the operator that he wanted to drive to the Surrey RCMP detachment. He said he had a gun with him in the back seat of his Pontiac and thought it was the weapon he “used to shoot his friend,” the court documents said.
Part of his call to 911 was read into the record at his sentencing hearing:
Wallace: “I’m gonna turn myself in.”
Operator: “OK.”
Wallace: “My family’s in danger.”
Operator: “OK.”
Wallace: “And I wanna make sure they’re safe.”
Operator: “You’ve turned yourself in to where? Sorry, you’re turning yourself in to where?”
Wallace: “To the Surrey RCMP.”
Operator: “And where are you right now?”
Wallace: “I’m driving down towards the jail.”
Operator: “OK. Why do you think your family is unsafe?”
Wallace: “Because my — my friend is a Hells Angels and I f–king killed him for some reason.”
Operator: “And you say — and you said your friend was killed.”
Wallace: “Yeah. Well, I think he’s dead. I don’t know. I was out of my mind on drugs and shit. I don’t even understand how it happened.”
Operator: “Where were you when this happened?”
Wallace: “We were partying and doing drugs and shit in Langley.”
Operator: “OK. Where in Langley?”
Wallace: “232nd Street and like 72nd or something like that.”
Operator: “When did this — when was that?”
Wallace: “The other night. I don’t know. I’ve been awake for a few days. I’m — I’m f–ked right up.”
Operator: “And so you said your friend died? How did he die?”
Wallace: “I’m pretty sure I f–king shot him. I don’t even know how.”
Operator: “You think you shot him?”
Wallace: “Yeah, and I don’t even understand how or why — or even why or nothing, I don’t know.”
Operator: “You don’t know what happened?”
Wallace: “I don’t even know. I was like my mind wasn’t even there. It was like I was so f–ked up.”
Wallace broke down and cried as the operator urged him to take a deep breath. He described drinking and doing drugs for days. While still on the phone, Wallace was surrounded by Surrey RCMP and arrested. Police found a Glock handgun and a folding knife in his car. A test on the Glock indicated it was not the gun used to kill Green.

In a news release that day, IHIT congratulated itself on the quick arrest, saying it spoke to “the tenacity of all agencies involved.”
