A bikie boss has been left furious after his family home was targeted in an early morning shooting in Melbourne.

Police are investigating after shots were fired Finks boss BJ Reker's home, on Warrain Street at Frankston, shortly before 5am today.

Dutch prosecutors ask judge to outlaw Hells Angels

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Dutch prosecutors have asked a judge to ban the Hells Angels motorcycle gang in the Netherlands, arguing that its members are part of "a subculture of lawlessness."

The appeal is not the first time Dutch authorities have gone after the gang. An earlier attempt to outlaw a local branch of the Hells Angels was rejected by Dutch courts, including by the country's Supreme Court in 2009.

Prosecutors said Wednesday that they handed to a court in the central Netherlands a dossier including hundreds of pages outlining the Hells Angels' activities. They said in a statement that the gang's members are involved in crimes such as extortion and intimidation.

Dutch prosecutors have in recent years gone after other motorcycle gangs, saying that they form a threat to civil order.

Mongrel Mob member pleads guilty to a charge of being accessory after the fact to manslaughter

A Mongrel Mob member has admitted helping a fellow gang member burn the van involved in a crash which killed a Tribesman gang member.

Jared Renata Te Moana pleaded guilty in the High Court at Rotorua on Monday to a charge of being an accessory after the fact to manslaughter.

The offending happened on November 26, 2016, in the Waihau Bay area, South East of Opotiki.

It was the day of a tangi, the unveiling of a gravestone for a resident and previous captain of the local Mongrel Mob chapter, and the marriage of a couple with connections to the Tribesman Motorcycle gang, according to the summary of facts.

Earlier in the day, Mongrel Mob members and the Tribesman motorcyclists had agreed the Tribesman would remove their gang regalia while attending the wedding.

Tribesman gang members Don Henry Turei Jnr and his brother weren't aware of the arrangement and drove past a Mongrel Mob pad that afternoon on the way to the wedding reception.

Alleged Hells Angels leader Salvatore Cazzetta sues Quebec for $2 million

The alleged biker gang leader claims prosecutors and cops held back key information during his bail hearing.

An alleged leader among the Hells Angels in Quebec has filed a lawsuit against the attorney general of Quebec, seeking more than $2 million while alleging he was detained without cause following his arrest in a major drug-trafficking case. He alleges prosecutors and police held back key evidence during his bail hearing.

The lawsuit filed at the Montreal courthouse by Salvatore Cazzetta, 63, an alleged member of the Hells Angels since roughly 2004, involves a case in which he and 20 other people were charged in November 2015 with a series of criminal offences related to drug trafficking in the Mercier—Hochelaga—Maisonneuve borough. Besides being an alleged Hells Angels leader, Cazzetta has been observed meeting with several people tied to the Montreal Mafia in recent years.

Two police investigators and three prosecutors are also named in the lawsuit.

R.I. seen as key crossroads for biker gangs

The popularity of motorcycle clubs exploded in the 1940s when thousands of World War II veterans, who had shared the adrenaline of combat and a brotherhood unmatched, found themselves on the tranquil thresholds of middle-class America — and bored.

Looking to share again in dangerous thrills, some turned to motorcycles. In 1947 thousands of bikers streamed into Hollister, California, for races and a rally where drinking and club rivalries brought havoc to the small town.

The resulting outcry prompted the American Motorcyclist Association to declare that 99 percent of motorcycle clubs were law-abiding and harmless.

Seventy years later, the nefarious few — like the two clubs Rhode Island law enforcement literally blew the doors off Wednesday — still proudly call themselves “1 percenters.”

And for the last few years some violent biker gangs have been feuding over Rhode Island turf, says State Police Lt. Col. Joseph Philbin.

Riding Season: Outlaw bikers celebrate, police make their presence felt and the Post follows along

From Victoria Day weekend in Niagara Falls to the sprawling Friday the 13th motorcycle bash in Port Dover in October, the National Post followed along as Ontario’s bikers and cops did their colourful tango

As temperatures climb and the residuum of salt and grit from winter driving clears, Canada’s bikers start an annual routine.

Riding season is a consideration for every motorcyclist in the country, but for the subset of riders in outlaw motorcycle clubs the routine is regimented — perhaps surprisingly for bands of outlaws, bikers have strict internal rules, and in Canada those rules stipulate exactly when they have to ride their Harley-Davidson motorcycles. If they don’t have a road-worthy bike for the opening of the season, their club typically levies a fine.
