Toys from the ‘rebels’

Christmas has passed but the season of giving certainly doesn’t end in December. Khmer Times’ Peter Olszewski writes about Rebels Motorcycle Club’s planned charity, Cambodia Toy Run, in Siem Reap, where underprivileged children on the outskirts of the city will receive gifts from old and new members of the riding club.

The Rebels Motorcycle Club will hold its annual Cambodia Toy Run for charity in Siem Reap this year for the first time, after a five-year history of the run in Sihanoukville.

Rebels Motorcycle Club spokesman Chris Tallis says holding the run in Siem Reap is a good way of introducing the club to the tourist-favourite town after the Rebel’s breakaway from Sihanoukville.

“Some of us went to Kampot and some came here,” he said. “We plan to officially open in Siem Reap in February (and) this is the first run in Siem Reap.

More than 3,700 pounds of food were collected by the local motorcycle club

The North County Chapter of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club helped to collect more than 3,700 pounds of food for the Marysville Community Food Bank this December.

The club’s food drive was held on Dec. 15 in Marysville at the Lucky 13 Saloon and helped to bring in a total of around 3,760 pounds of food in addition to $1,461 raised from items auctioned at their event.

This was the first time that the local club has decided to put on a holiday food drive and Bandido Milkman Josh Leathers, a member of the club and one of the main organizers of the event, was happy with how it went.

“Overall I believe that the food drive was a success,” he said.

The club had decided they wanted to help locals this holiday season and decided to try a food drive.

“We wanted to give back to the community so we chose to give to the local food bank,” said Leathers.

“They do a lot of good work for the less fortunate in the community,” he said.

Deliveryman beaten after parking in front of Hells Angels clubhouse

A deliveryman was beaten early Monday when he parked his car in front of motorcycles outside the Hells Angels’ East Village clubhouse, police sources said.

The 22-year-old was dropping off food to a different location on East Third Street between First and Second avenues around 2 a.m. when he stopped his car in front of the motorcycle club, police said.

A stranger in his 60s approached the driver and told him he couldn’t park in front of the hogs, but the deliveryman continued with the drop-off, law enforcement sources said.

When he returned to his car, two other men approached. One held him by the neck while the other sucker-punched him in the face, the sources added.

The victim suffered minor facial injuries but did not need to be taken to the hospital.

The Hells Angels have zealously protected the parking spaces outside their clubhouse.

Violent feud led up to slaying of Pasco Outlaws leader. It started with stolen biker vests.

The 69’ers only injured their first target, a former firefighter, during a shooting in Hillsborough, prosecutors say

TAMPA — The 69'ers Motorcycle Club is a nationwide organization whose members pride themselves on being part of the one percent — that is, the small fraction of bikers who shirk society’s rules.

In the Tampa area, they called themselves the “Killsborough” chapter. Inductees adopted names like “Pumpkin” and “Durty” and “Big Beefy.”

They nurtured what prosecutors say was a criminal enterprise focused on narcotics distribution. Last year, according to a federal indictment, they graduated to murder.

Their target was Paul Anderson.

Anderson was president of the Cross Bayou chapter of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, the predominant one-percenter club in the eastern United States.

Hells Angels motorcycle group hosts toy drive

ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- The Hells Angels motorcycle group helped provide for needy families this Christmas season.

In just two days, the group came up with about 300 to 400 toys for a toy drive. At one point, the group says, they almost ran out of toys.

To get the word out, they just used word of mouth and Facebook. They say this is their first time doing a stationary toy drive because they normally drive around to different places.

Organizers say it feels good to give back to the less fortunate.

"A lot of these kids don't have anything; they don't have any presents or anything, and somebody's got to do something," said Matt Yarber with Hells Angels.
