The Real Story Behind The Diablos Motorcycle Club

THUMPERRRR's picture

With a motto of "Diablos Forever, Forever Diablos" you can only imagine the seriousness of joining such a gang.

The word "Diablo" when translated into English means "Devil".  It seems that the Diablos Motorcycle Club (MC) periodically attempts to live up to its namesake, whether intentionally or not.

Let's start with a few quick facts about the Diablos MC.  According to Wikipedia the club was founded in 1961 in San Bernardino California.  The founder Jack Baltas died in 2012 at the age of 70 years of age, shortly after being released from prison on drug trafficking charges.  It's a whites-only club that spans across the entire United States but has a higher density on the east coast.  One interesting tidbit about Jack Baltas is that at one time, he was a candidate for Meriden city council, a town in Connecticut which in 2010 had a population of over 60,000.  What makes this interesting is that to be a candidate for any city council, one is usually civic-minded, respected within the community and an able communicator. Perhaps these characteristics is what allowed Jack Baltas to organize and grow a nationally recognized organization.

Another key fact regarding the Diablos MC is that it's considered part of the one percenters. Basically, what this means is that the Diablos MC and similarly organized clubs that are one percenters live outside the rules as prescribed by the American Motorcyclist Association (AMA).  This is not to say that the Diablos MC has no rules, but that they have their own set of regulations.  One of those rules is that every club member must be a gun owner - no exceptions.
