For all the talk about freedom, there seems something self-destructive about many outlaw bikers. It would be interesting if someone did a study of suicide rates. I’d bet they’re far higher than for the general population. What got me thinking of this is the apparent suicide of an Ontario Nomad in a Quebec jail cell.
Promoters are talking about a Sturgis North in Vernon, B.C. Should we be surprised that the organizer’s not telling the Hells Angels they can’t come? That said, his quote that he is against “segregation” is a little tough to digest. The Sturgis rally drew Bob Dylan and Peewee Herman, which is impressive in a particularly strange way.
The fourth suspect in the shooting of a London, Ont. Hells Angel and his female companion has been arrested. Three of the four suspects are from the Greater Toronto Area and he was picked up in Peel. When was the last time London, Ont. Hells Angels were attacked by outsiders in their own city?
I’m not so sure this will settle things down. Bail has been granted to one of the men arrested after the shooting of a London, Ont. Hells Angel and a female friend last week. Funny how bail works. Lorne Campbell of the Toronto Hells Angels didn’t get bail while waiting four years for his trial on charges not involving violence (criminal organization and drug conspiracy).
It was like a scene out the The Godfather with a West Coast B.C. flavour, as a gunman ended the life of a longtime mobster. Thirty-six years old seems old for this milieu, where the Hells Angels are only a part of the ever-changing mix.
A Brampton man is wanted by London, Ont. police a week after a full-patch Hells Angel and a female companion were shot near the bikers’ clubhouse. Typical 21st century violence. Random, sloppy, public and cowardly.
The men charged with shooting a London, Ont. Hells Angel last week have been hit with more gun charges. This will get worse before it gets better.
Reports of more gunshots in London, Ont., as tensions between Hells Angels and street gang, said to be the FU Crew, continue. The FU crew are friendly with the Outlaws and the Outlaws and Hells Angels are never friendly.
It’s been a nasty week for the London, Ont. Hells Angels after one member was shot and a string of businesses were torched. Reports have speculated it’s the FU (who can guess what that stands for?) street gang, which has ties to the Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Now the city and anyone in the province interested in bikers is watching to see what the club does. The attacks have been blamed on street gangs with a strong GTA influence. So far the Angels haven’t struck back and it’s news now even when the Angels do nothing.
