The Resurrection of Australia’s Most Violent Gang: Brothers 4 Life

We interviewed members of the B4L in Blacktown.

I heard the turbo from the blacked-out Subaru WRX before it pulled up at Blacktown station. Three burly boys in Nautica shirts, bright shoes, and razor sharp fades jumped out for a cigarette; they were members of Brothers 4 Life (B4L), the most violent street gang in recent Australian history.

To break the ice, I told them I appreciated how every fine detail of their car was painted black. “We call it murdered. When you murder a car it’s a total black out...like death,” replied Omar*, a 27-year-old gang member. We were headed to an Afghan restaurant in Blacktown to talk about what inspired them to join the B4L.

Devils Henchmen ride easier as the club reaches 40

Some might see them as unorthodox but the Devils Henchmen say they're maturing as the Timaru club revs up to celebrate 40 years.   

They will mark the milestone this long weekend and say there's plenty of life left in the club - despite an ageing membership.

The club has gained notoriety over the years - specifically in the early 90s - when gang tensions intensified in South Canterbury, capturing national attention. 

On the eve of their birthday, club members maintain there have been misconceptions over the years. 

"Everyone is getting older and wiser; no one is getting any younger," club member Bryn Cox said.

Hells Angels MC Nomads member from N.B. gets four years for cocaine trafficking

Robin Moulton, a full-patch member of the Hells Angels MC Nomads New Brunswick chapter, has been sentenced to four-and-a-half years in jail for cocaine trafficking.

Police say Moulton and another person, Forty-one-year-old Marie Antonette Bugay, were sentenced after an RCMP-led joint-force investigation led to their arrest in August 2017.

Moulton pleaded guilty to the trafficking charge, as well as a charge for possession of a drug press.

“In addition to jail time, he is subject to a lifetime firearms prohibition, various forfeiture orders, and is required to submit a sample of his DNA,” the RCMP said in a news release.

Bugay, who police say is “an associate” of Moulton, was sentenced to 30 months in jail for possession of a loaded firearm without a license, possession of cocaine, and possession of proceeds obtained by crime.

Mongols motorcycle club returns to Palm Springs for annual event

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - The Mongols motorcycle club is back in Palm Springs for their annual event -- selling out all 255 rooms at the Hilton in downtown Palm Springs. The Palm Springs police department has implemented extra security measures in the surrounding area out of "an abundance of caution."

“You can’t escape the noise...there’s a couple hundred that come in at one time with all the bikes. So you got the vibrations of the bikes coming up and yeah...it’s a pretty large spectacle,” said Shannon Anderson, the General Manager of the Hilton Palm Springs.  

Some locals expressed concern with the return of the biker group. “If you even Wikipedia them...and it says rape, murder drugs...I think it makes people feel uncomfortable,” said Marsha Robinson, a local shop owner. One bar said they refuse to let anyone inside wearing a leather Mongol vest.

Undercover Pittsburgh narcotics detectives and uniformed officers brawled early Friday morning inside a South Side bar with what police say were armed reputed members of the Pagans motorcycle club.

A customer at the bar recorded several videos of the altercation, in which both uniformed and plainclothes detectives can be seen fighting with men in leather vests, some officers with Tasers in hand.

The man on the ground says, “I didn’t!”
