Hells Angels rounded-up in massive swoop ‘almost all released’ due to judicial sloth

37 of 39 bikers connected to the notorious Hells Angels gang have been released from Portuguese jails – after 14 months behind bars – without their case getting anywhere near a courtroom.

Say reports, the situation has caused “a lot of bad feeling” within the PJ police who led this investigation.

It now seems highly likely the case will collapse as many of the defendants are foreigners, explains Correio da Manhã who will almost certainly return to their home countries, “which will make it difficult to notify them” when the case is finally ready to be heard in Portugal.

When this investigation ‘hit the headlines’ two summers ago (click here) it was described as a major coup for the combat of organised crime.

But it was also deemed “especially complex”.

Pagans Motorcycle Club honors member 13 years after death with short ceremony

The sound of engines revving briefly filled Wilmington's Hilltop neighborhood Saturday afternoon when members of the Pagan Motorcycle Club gathered to remember a man who was shot and killed by a Wilmington police officer 13 years ago.

About 30 members gathered near the steps of a home in the 1400 block of W. Sixth St., where Derek J. Hale was shot to death by Lt. William Browne during an investigation of the motorcycle club. Browne was cleared of any wrongdoing by the state's Attorney General's Office in 2007.

The group's motorcycles filled the block, arranged in two long lines between parked cars as the club's leader, Paul Fitzwater, shared a few words with the motorcyclists and residents looking on from their porches.

After less than 10 minutes, their engines roared and the group left.
