NEW FICTION: Featuring Jammer and Vibe, in rival gangs, with nothing in common except motorcycles! One of their most lucrative businesses was drug trafficking. America had never been so addicted to substances galore and now it seemed pharmaceutical pills could be replaced by marijuana as well. Hey, there were breakfast brownies made of weed in cafes! Why eat a cow-burger when you can eat “grass?” You didn’t quit this club. The club just fired you with a Viking funeral. Exploding motorcycles was their retribution. An innovative death sentence, ahead of its time or earlier than exploding electric motorcycles. Their conditioning and witnessing of daily violence was such that eventual loss of limb or life seemed like a dream—a fairy tale told by enemies. Power does not exist if it’s not enforced and thus the immaterial comes into tangible existence. Then you “see” power, feel it and know it. Their fearsome reputation was not from use of firearms but bizarre deaths that would shock and traumatize the best of ER regulars.

The mysterious weirdness about the legend of the ganja by Amy Irene White with images from the Bob T. collection 10/29/2021 One of the most exasperatingly ridiculous brick walls in Washington DC is, the age-old conundrum of legalizing marijuana. Throughout the years, marijuana has gone through many transformations in the public eye. House Veterans Affairs Committee (HVAC) were scheduled to conduct a legislative hearing on Wednesday, October 13th, which included consideration of the bipartisan VA Cannabis Research Act of 2021, HR 2916. So far, there have been no updates, when I wrote this. The legislation “would direct the VA to conduct clinical research with varying forms of medicinal cannabis to evaluate the safety and effects of cannabis on health outcomes of veterans with PTSD and veterans with chronic pain.” CLICK HERE for a Feature Report on the State of the Myth, Mystery & Legend of Ganja Join the Cantina for more – Subscribe Today. https://www.bikernet.com/pages/custom/subscription.aspx

by Marcus Solis from https://abc7ny.com NYPD offering cash rewards during crackdown on illegal motorcycles and ATVs The NYPD is taking a new approach to fighting an old quality of life problem, offering cash rewards for the public’s help during a crackdown on illegal motorcycles and ATVs on city streets. Residents who report where illegal vehicles are being stored could collect $100 per motorbike seized. Dirt bikes and ATVs cannot be registered as street-legal motor vehicles because they lack safety equipment like brake lights, turn signals and mirrors. But that hasn’t stopped roving gangs of riders from creating public disturbances across the five boroughs. Chief of Department Rodney Harrison issued a warning to those who operate them. “They are illegal and dangerous,” he said. “Don’t ride them. If you do, you are endangering yourself and others.” Complaints of illegal motorcycles on streets and sidewalks are up 15% this year. Last week, the NYPD responded to 144 911 calls, most of them in Upper Manhattan. A 76-year old man was attacked in Inwood Hill Park by two motorcyclists after he complained that they rode too close to him. Police say they rarely initiate pursuits because of the potential danger to officers and the public, but they will confiscate motorbikes when they are parked in public. An average of 1,000 seized vehicles are crushed and their metal recycled each year. Anyone with information is urged to call the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
by Michael Weaver from https://the-riotact.com/ A police taskforce believes a number of shootings and arson attacks committed in South Canberra during the last three months are linked to outlaw motorcycle gangs. ACT Policing’s Taskforce Nemesis is targeting criminal gang activity in the ACT and believes at least five incidents between September and November this year are linked to outlaw motorcycle gangs. An ACT Policing spokesperson said at least one of these incidents targeted a home with no known links to outlaw motorcycle gangs. “We are urging anyone with information or footage of these incidents to contact police, as even a small piece of information may help with inquiries,” the spokesperson said. The following instances of suspected outlaw motorcycle gang activity are being investigated: About 9:55 pm on 26 September 2019: gunshots were fired at a house on Fraenkel Street, Monash About 10:20 pm on 29 October 2019: gunshots were fired at a house in Fink Crescent, Calwell About 10:40 pm on 29 October 2019: an incendiary device was thrown at a house in Pockett Avenue, Banks About 10:55 pm on 20 November 2019: an aggravated burglary and arson occurred at a house in Chirnside Place, Kambah About 10:10 pm on 25 November 2019: three cars were set on fire at the same residence as a previous incident in Fraenkel Street, Monash. Police believe these incidents were all specifically targeted and are related to outlaw motorcycle gang activity. “Officers from Taskforce Nemesis will continue to relentlessly pursue criminal gangs who seek to disrupt the safety of Canberra suburbs,” an ACT Policing spokesperson said.

In a statement announcing all charges will be dropped in the deadliest biker shooting in U.S. history, McLennan County District Attorney Barry Johnson said any further effort to prosecute the case would be a ‘waste of time, effort and resources.’ ‘In my opinion, had this action been taken in a timely manner, it would have, and should have, resulted in numerous convictions and prison sentences against many of those who participated in the Twin Peaks brawl,’ Johnson said. ‘Over the next three years the prior district attorney failed to take that action, for reasons that I do not know to this day.’ The shooting outside a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco on May 17, 2015, involved rival biker gangs, the Bandidos and Cossacks, and occurred as bikers from various groups were gathering to talk over matters of concern. Fights and gunfire broke out. Waco police officers monitoring the gathering also fired on the bikers, killing at least

The Mongols motorcycle club has won its latest round in a decade long battle with the federal government, when a California judge found that a jury’s recent decision to strip the club of trademarked logo was unconstitutional. On Thursday, February 28, 2019 U.S. District Judge David O. Carter ruled that denying Mongol members the right to display the logo would overstep the constitutional right to free expression embedded in the 1st Amendment, as well as the 8th Amendment’s ban on excessive penalties. “We are ecstatic that the Mongols motorcycle club has been able to win this 1st Amendment battle for itself and all motorcycle clubs,” said Stephen Stubbs, an attorney for the Mongols. “The government has clearly overreached into a realm that the Constitution does not allow. They tried to ban symbolic speech,” Stubbs told the Los Angeles Times. Stubbs, a.k.a. “Bowtie” as bikers call him, is a member of the National Coalition of Motorcyclists Legislative Task Force (NCOM-LTF) and is legal counsel for the Southern Nevada Confederation of Clubs (COC). In December, after a lengthy trial, a jury convicted the Mongols Nation entity as an organization of racketeering and conspiracy charges stemming from a 2008 investigation, and the ensuing guilty verdict thus allowed prosecutors from the U.S. attorney’s office to pursue a court order forcing the club to forfeit the trademarked symbol that appears on their back patches and other membership paraphernalia. Judge Carter affirmed the RICO convictions, which could carry fines at sentencing in April, but his written ruling marks a setback for federal prosecutors after they convinced a jury in January to allow the government to seize the club’s patches and trademarks as criminal instruments. “The collective membership mark acts as a symbol that communicates a person’s association with the Mongol Nation, and his or her support
