Mongols motorcycle club returns to Palm Springs for annual event

PALM SPRINGS, Calif. - The Mongols motorcycle club is back in Palm Springs for their annual event -- selling out all 255 rooms at the Hilton in downtown Palm Springs. The Palm Springs police department has implemented extra security measures in the surrounding area out of "an abundance of caution."

“You can’t escape the noise...there’s a couple hundred that come in at one time with all the bikes. So you got the vibrations of the bikes coming up and yeah...it’s a pretty large spectacle,” said Shannon Anderson, the General Manager of the Hilton Palm Springs.  

Some locals expressed concern with the return of the biker group. “If you even Wikipedia them...and it says rape, murder drugs...I think it makes people feel uncomfortable,” said Marsha Robinson, a local shop owner. One bar said they refuse to let anyone inside wearing a leather Mongol vest.

Federal Judge Delays Mongols Trial But Warns The Gang About Manners

Inside a stately Orange County federal courtroom on June 4, U.S. District Court Judge David O. Carter silently eyed a wild looking bunch of at least 25 Mongols Motorcycle Club members dominating the public seating section.

Several of the club’s crew looked bar-room ready to rumble with anyone who held their probing gazes, but Carter, a heroic U.S. Marine survivor of one of this nation’s most brutal military battles in the Vietnam War and one of the nation’s most colorful judges, wanted the motley crew to know who is in charge and not to be challenged: him.

“What a great impression you make,” the federal judge sarcastically said to the Mongols during the pre-trial hearing.
