Hundreds of bikers rally to farewell their mate John Smith

And Bono sent a tribute

Hundreds of “1%” bikers from outlaw motorcycle clubs across Australian, heard the gospel preached loud and clear but lovingly last weekend.

They had gathered together peacefully – for the first time ever – in a church in a small seaside village near Geelong, to pay their respects to a great bloke and say goodbye to a mate, known affectionately to most simply as ‘Smithy’.

The gathering included patched members of rival outlaw clubs including the Hell’s Angels, the Bandidos, the Gypsy Jokers, the Coffin Cheaters, the Rebels and the Immortals.

Breaking: Weld jury returns split verdict in 2017 attempted murder of Milliken police officer

A Weld County jury returned a split verdict Friday in the attempted first-degree murder trial of Eaton resident John Lockhart.

Lockhart was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm and vehicular eluding following two separate shooting incidents during the early morning hours of June 11, 2017 in Greeley and Milliken. One of those two victims was an on-duty Milliken police officer.

After almost two full days of deliberations, the jury convicted Lockhart on the vehicular eluding charge, which is a Class 5 felony punishable by up to three years in prison. The jury found Lockhart not guilty of attempted first-degree murder and illegal discharge of a firearm.

As for count 3, attempted first-degree murder of a peace officer, the foreman said the jury was deadlocked. Weld District Court Judge Thomas Quammen declared a mistrial on that charge.

Decision reached in Hells Angels' legal tussle with e-store Redbubble

Ruling over Death Head logo.  

The Australian wing of infamous outlaw motorcycle gang the Hells Angels will receive “nominal” damages of just $5000 from craft and t-shirt online marketplace Redbubble after the Queensland arm of the global brand lost the bulk of an intellectual property infringement claim lodged in 2015.

Redbubble on Monday morning issued a notification to the Australian Securities Exchange that the Federal Court had “found in Redbubble’s favour and dismissed all of Hells Angels’ claims in relation to the copyright and consumer law causes of action.”

The dispute centred around the claim that Redbubble had allowed the sale of unauthorised Hells Angels’ merchandise, specifically using it’s iconic “death head” logo that features a winged skull and forms the basis of the gang’s patch for its uniform or colours.

Recent high-profile incidents shine a light on local outlaw motorcycle gangs

They cut an imposing figure. 

Heads turn and people tend to keep their distance when members of Bakersfield's local outlaw motorcycle gangs enter an establishment. Instantly recognizable due to their leather vests with patches proclaiming their affiliation, these groups historically have a reputation for violence. 

Some recent incidents involving the groups have only furthered that reputation. One was a deadly stabbing at a popular dive bar involving two motorcycle gang members, the other an exchange of gunshots in broad daylight during a fundraiser on Buck Owens Boulevard. 

Those who spot members of a biker gang are best advised to leave them alone. Anyone who starts trouble could quickly find himself surrounded and in extreme physical danger.

"They engage in acts of violence or drug sales as needed," said Senior Police Officer Louis James, of the Bakersfield Police Department's gang unit.
