Hell's Angels anniversary London to Brighton trip prompts two police forces to cancel all holidays

The Hell's Angels anniversary trip from London to Brighton has prompted two police forces to cancel all of their staff’s easter holidays, as they warn that any crime will not be tolerated.

Limerick biker loses appeal against murder verdict

A Limerick biker jailed for murdering the founder of a rival club has lost an appeal against his conviction, claiming he was provoked. 

Alan 'Cookie' McNamara (52), from Mountfune, Murroe, had pleaded not guilty to the murder of Andrew 'AOD' O'Donoghue at the gates of the Road Tramps motorcycle club at Mountfune, on June 20, 2015. 

He was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life imprisonment by Mr Justice Paul McDermott on October 27, 2017. 

The Central Criminal Court heard that Mr O’Donoghue developed a love of bikes in the 1980s and was a founding member of the Road Tramps motorcycle club. McNamara had been a Road Tramp some years earlier but joined another group, the Caballeros, in 2015. 

Tensions between the two clubs flared when McNamara was seen wearing Caballeros colours in a pub in Doon, an area considered to be Road Tramps' territory.

Law-abiding outlaws: Trademark protection the Hells Angels way

The US Department of Justice considers the Hells Angels to be an organised crime syndicate, yet the motorcycle club is pretty astute when it comes to staying on the right side of IP law.

The Hells Angels name generates a distinctive image in most people’s minds; typically, one of black leather, beards and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. But, despite its rebellious and sometimes violent reputation, the worldwide motorcycle club founded in California over 70 years ago, has taken a shrewd approach to its legal rights, creating the Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation (HAMC) to register, protect and enforce its IP rights.

Canadian Law Enforcement and Public Safety Partners Launch Anti-Outlaw Motorcycle Gang Campaign

OTTAWA, May 21, 2019 /CNW/ - Starting today and continuing over the ride season, police and public safety partners are taking to social media to remind Canadians that outlaw motorcycle gangs remain a criminal threat to our communities.

While the vast majority of motorcycle riders are law-abiding citizens, extensive criminal networks within the outlaw biker community continue to profit from illicit activities like drug trafficking, fraud, counterfeiting, money laundering, contraband smuggling, extortion, violence and illegal gaming.

Outlaw motorcycle clubs often take part in legitimate charitable events and other public relations efforts to portray themselves as good-natured free spirits. Popular television shows in recent years have unfortunately glamorized the gangster lifestyle and likely helped organized crime groups attract recruits and supporters.
