Former Kingsmen president gets three life sentences for double murder

Andre Jenkins fired the gun that killed two fellow Kingsmen, but the man behind the assassination-style murders is also going to prison for life.

David Pirk, the Lockport native who rose to power in the violent motorcycle gang, was given three consecutive life sentences Thursday for his leadership role in orchestrating the double murder.

Now 68, Pirk was found guilty of conspiring with Jenkins and others to kill Kingsmen Paul Maue and Daniel "DJ" Szymanski outside their North Tonawanda clubhouse in September 2014.

"DJ was a large man with a heart of gold," his mother, Barbara Szymanski, said during a statement in court Thursday. "His nickname was teddy bear."

Jenkins, who is already serving life without parole because of a Niagara County conviction for the murders, was also found guilty in federal court of taking part in the conspiracy. U.S. District Judge Elizabeth A. Wolford will sentence him later on Thursday.

Sturgis campgrounds may face fees ahead of popular motorcycle rally

STURGIS, S.D. - The city of Sturgis is proposing fees — as high as $5,100 in some cases — that would have to be paid in advance by campgrounds outside city limits if they want ambulance service at this year's Sturgis motorcycle rally.

The proposed fees range from $300 to $5,100 and are based on the number of ambulance calls to the campgrounds during the 2018 rally, Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainslie said at a Feb. 19 special meeting in Sturgis with campground owners.

Under the proposal, campgrounds that had no ambulance calls last year would be assessed a $300 fee to cover this year’s rally in August. Those with one to four calls last year would pay $650, those with five to nine calls would pay $1,850, and a fee of $5,100 would be charged to those that had 10 or more calls during the 2018 rally.

36-year-old man identified as victim of deadly Saturday-night shooting in Birmingham

Authorities have released the name of a man shot to death in western Birmingham Saturday night.

Birmingham police identified the victim as Christopher Lawson. He was 36.

Birmingham’s West Precinct officers responded about 8:40 p.m. to the 6100 block of Grove Avenue. Once on the scene, they found an adult black male lying in a ditch next to his motorcycle. The motorcycle was still upright with the kickstand in place.

Lawson was pronounced dead on the scene. Birmingham police Sgt. Johnny Williams said Lawson was believed to have attended a party in the area. Investigators do not have a motive for the shooting and were getting little information from the scene Saturday night.

Neighbors reported hearing between five to 10 shots fired, and some said they dropped to the floor of their homes in fear. Dozens of onlookers – including Lawson’s family - gathered at the scene.

Double life of the Mongrel Mob bikie next door

In the eyes of his neighbours and family friends, Grantito Eduard Chacone probably seemed like a model citizen.

He appeared to be a good-natured, ordinary bloke. He loved his wife, volunteered at his children’s rugby and soccer games and worked hard in the mining industry to provide for his family.

But there was one “small matter” that perhaps Chacone’s associates were not aware of — he was also the national president of the notoriously violent Mongrel Mob bikie gang.

WHO ARE WA’S OUTLAW MOTORCYCLE GANGS

Chacone’s double life unravelled in August when police raided his Halls Head home and found about 380g of methylamphetamine and about $60,000 cash.

(pics) --- The run began as an informal gathering of friends some 50 years ago, but social media has exploded its popularity.

BRIDGEWATER — The “Frosty Nuts” motorcycle run, a 20-mile ride from Bridgewater to Plympton, is an institution with a humble beginning.

A Bridgewater man, Willie Smith, started the run decades ago. The town’s 49ers Club started organizing the ride in 1988, but Smith stayed involved until his death in January 2018.

49ers Club president Kevin Burrill said Smith told him the ride started almost by accident.

A 34-year-old St. Paul man is accused of stealing a gun from a bouncer at a bar during an assault by motorcycle gang members, according to a criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday.

Three other men also were charged in November, but the complaint against Joseph Michael Pranter was sealed until his arrest, which came on Wednesday.

Pranter is charged with aiding and abetting aggravated robbery and third-degree assault, along with committing a crime for the benefit of a gang and illegal gun possession. Pranter is ineligible to possess firearms because of a past conviction for terroristic threats, the complaint said.
