Australian Bikie Gangs: Complete List of Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs

Q. What is an outlaw motorcycle club?

Not to be confused with mere bike enthusiast clubs who meet to ride and socialise, outlaw motorcycle gangs or OMCG's are responsible for much of our nation's organised crime. OMCGs are tied up in illicit commodity markets, particularly in the drug trade, and often perpetrate high impact violence, including the use of firearms and arson.

 

Q. Are OMCG's prevalent in Australia?

According to the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission website, there are 39 ‘one percent’ OMCGs operating in Australia, with more than 4,760 patched members, 955 prospects and 4,585 associates. Around 44 of Australia's bikie gangs have been outlawed

 

Q. What does 'one percenters' mean?

Some OMCGs will refer to themselves as 'the 1%'. This is in reference to their belief that, unlike the rest of society, they are free to operate outside the law.

Man gets 25 years for murder at Hells Angels wedding

A man convicted of killing a 23-year-old biker last year was sentenced this week to 25 years in jail by the Namur Assize Court.

The jury deliberated for more than six hours before finding Francis Estorez (48) guilty of the murder of Marc Dascotte, a Hells Angels “prospect” (‘novice’ in the motorcycle gang’s lingo).

The incident took place on 27 August 2017 under a blistering summer sun in a shed decked out for a Hells Angel marriage. Estorez, who was on anti-depression medication and had consumed an enormous quantity of alcohol of various types, was so irked by what he saw as Dascotte’s puerile and exasperating behaviour that he threatened repeatedly to hand in his jacket, the symbol of his membership of the Hells Angels.

Supreme Court of Canada rules on Nova Scotia Hells Angels hitman case

Crown argued 1st-degree murder conviction against Dean Kelsie should be reinstated

The Supreme Court of Canada has closed the books on a Nova Scotia murder case involving a Hells Angels hit that has dragged on through the justice system for nearly two decades.

In a hearing Wednesday in Ottawa, the court dismissed an appeal by Nova Scotia prosecutors who were seeking to reinstate a first-degree murder conviction against Dean Daniel Kelsie.

But the Supreme Court did find Kelsie guilty of the lesser charge of second-degree murder, an offence that carries an automatic life sentence with no parole eligibility for between 10 and 25 years.

Kelsie, 45, was twice convicted in the killing of Sean Simmons, who was gunned down in the lobby of an apartment building in north-end Dartmouth, N.S., on Oct. 3, 2000.

A Weld County jury returned a split verdict Friday in the attempted first-degree murder trial of Eaton resident John Lockhart.

Lockhart was charged with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, illegal discharge of a firearm and vehicular eluding following two separate shooting incidents during the early morning hours of June 11, 2017 in Greeley and Milliken.
