Police want more officers to fight ‘prolific’ growth of Halifax biker gangs

Mildred: (Peggy Malay) “Hey Johnny, what are you rebelling against?”
Johnny: (Marlin Brand) “Whadda you got?”

The Wild One (1953)

It’s every city or town’s nightmare, probably has been since Marlon Brando’s striking movie The Wild One was released in 1953: a biker gang comes to town and all of a sudden a lot of things change–an increase in drug dealing, money laundering and turf wars.

Almost 17 years ago, police in Nova Scotia’s capital of Halifax shot down the notorious gang called the Hells Angels. Things have been fairly smooth since.

Now, the RCMP are expressing concern that outlaw biker gangs “want to get a foothold” in Halifax and its environs.

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

TAMPA — 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.

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.

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.

Outlaws Murder Defendant Gets Prosecution's Witness List

Jeremy Boshears is accused of firing one bullet into the head of Katie Kearns, a Joliet bartender.

JOLIET, IL - 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.
