Outlaws MC rolls into Kingston

Biker club rolls into town – Outlaws MC open new clubhouse

KINGSTON, ONTARIO, CANADA (January 17, 2017) – For years, Kingston has marketed itself as a place to do business. 

Centrally located between Montreal and Toronto with border crossings close by. But it seems that marketing ploy has also caught the attention of a famous biker club.

The Outlaws — the world’s third largest motorcycle club — have set up a clubhouse in this non-descript building — across from the Kingston Centre. The only signage is this Harley Davidson logo and a warning not to take photography of any kind.

According to a former cop and expert on biker clubs, a chapter usually starts with 6 members on probation — before being elevated to full ‘patch’ status after a year.

The Outlaws aren’t hiding the fact they are opening a chapter in the Limestone City — it’s even listed on their website. Outlaws MC Canada

Morganne Campbell:
“I spoke with one club supporter and business owners who operate near the new clubhouse and they say the Outlaws have been good neighbors so far.
In fact, they haven’t had any issues since they moved into this clubhouse.
Now the Outlaws refer to themselves as a brotherhood and not a criminal organisation.”

A point highlighted on their website.

”We have families, jobs, and responsibilities just like everyone else and although the media like to portray us as being criminals, the truth is we share a common goal of enjoying life to the fullest.” Outlaws MC Canada
CKWS news reached out to the Outlaws to speak about their intentions locally.

“We respectfully decline your offer as Outlaws MC Canada does not do interviews. But thank-you and have a nice day.”

A former cop and biker club expert who didn’t want to appear on camera says the arrival of the Outlaws in Kingston is a troubling scenario…. because the club could rapidly expand membership.

The last time biker clubs tried to make in-roads in Kingston was over a decade ago — but they left after covert police operations led to arrests … and the seizure of drugs, money and weapons.

So far, there’s no indication the bikers have done anything wrong… and there’s no risk to public safety. But police also made it clear — they’re watching.

Former Hells Angel MC leader set free

Former HAMC leader named the ‘Teflon Biker’ after case fizzles

LONDON, ONTARIO (January 16, 2017) – A high-profile, multi-million-dollar gambling bust three years ago has sent one Londoner to jail and two more to trial, but allowed the former head of the city’s Hells Angels to keep his clean record.

The quiet withdrawal of charges against Robert Barletta last fall, the same day his trial began, adds to his reputation as the “Teflon biker” but raises many questions, biker analyst Yves Lavigne said.

“It’s highly suspect that a case in which police spent so many resources would end with the Crown withdrawing charges,” he said.

No one could blame those in Ontario’s underworld for thinking either the police messed up or Barletta played some get-out-of-jail-free card, Lavigne said.

“How can the cops bring to court the former president of the London chapter of the Hells Angels without having done their job properly? It’s incredible to me the former president would be free.”

Barletta, as usual, isn’t talking either directly, or via his lawyer, Richard Posner of Toronto.

About 400 police officers raided a Markham Super Bowl party in February 2013, busting up a multimillion-dollar online gaming site called Platinum Sports book.

Initial arrests were followed by raids a month later in 10 locations, including London, after which several London men faced charges.

The trial for Barletta and Andrew Bielli, also linked to the Hells Angels, began Sept. 12, 2016, in Toronto. Both pleaded not guilty to bookmaking for the benefit of a criminal organization and possessing proceeds of crime.

They then walked to another court to see Gordon Baird, 59, admit he was administrator of the illegal sports ring that grossed more than $103 million in 2009-13. With no criminal record and because he pleaded guilty to bookmaking as participation in a criminal organization, Baird received an 18-month conditional sentence, to be served in his home, and a $400,000 fine.

 Asked by the judge if was pressured by anyone to take the plea, Baird said, “No, sir.”

According to a clerk with the Superior Court of Justice, charges against Barletta were withdrawn the same day.

On Jan. 5, Bielli pleaded guilty to possessing property obtained by crime over $5,000 and was sentenced to 15 months in custody, the clerk said, in response to recent Free Press questions about the status of the trials. Two other London men, David Hair and Christopher Rutledge, have trial dates set for January 2018.

There were no records in the computer system for two more London men charged in 2013, Jeffrey Fuchs and Hiesam Kadri, the clerk said. Still facing trial is William (Billy) Miller, former president of the London chapter of Hells Angels, now living in Toronto.

Barletta has long balanced leadership in the Hells Angels with a squeaky clean record. He was a founding member of the London chapter when it was established in 2003 and ran a strip club that became the target of the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario. 

A protracted legal battle ended with Barletta losing his liquor license, despite not having a criminal record, because of his association with the Hells Angels.

Australian bikie clubs heading to Capital

Australian Bikie clubs heading to Canberra because of soft laws 

SYDNEY, AU (January 15, 2017) – Bikie Clubs have declared Canberra a “free for all” zone, with one outfit targeting the nation’s capital because of its lack of consorting laws.

The Dutch Satudarah is among a number of Bikie clubs which have been given legal advice that the ACT would be easier to operate out of rather than other states, where tough anti-bikie laws are in place.

The development is a reflection of the “free for all” declaration — which basically means gangs do not need permission from rival gangs to operate in the area, usually a necessary requirement under loose bikie protocols.

* Formally founded in the Netherlands in 1990
* Name originated in Indonesia and translates to “one blood”
* Has 44 chapters with 2000 members in 19 countries
* Established in Australia in 2015

On December 3 and 4 last year the national conference of the Comancheros met and trucked in nearly 70 bikes before riding around Lake Burley Griffin in their colours..

Previously, the Rebels were the only bikie club in Canberra, but now the Nomads and the Comanchero club have established clubhouses and the Finks recently held a national meeting there.

ACT Attorney-General Gordon Ramsay confirmed that while the ACT did not currently have specific consorting laws, it did have a dedicated task force called Nemesis to deal with gangs.

“ACT policing, through Taskforce Nemesis, has executed 131 search warrants across Canberra, seizing weapons, cash, drugs and anabolic steroids,” he said. “As of 30 October 2016, 71 OMCG members had been brought before the court, charged with a total of 217 offences.”

However, NSW Police sources have revealed their exasperation at how the ACT situation is hampering their battle against the bikie menace. “A lot of clubhouses have been closed down and bikies are no longer roaming in packs in NSW but it’s frustrating that they can still operate freely in Canberra,” a senior NSW officer said.

“It means they can have their state and national meetings and plan their criminal activities with less fear of being arrested.”

NSW’s tough consorting laws mean the traditional bikie “runs’’ and wearing colours in public had almost vanished.

On its website Satudarah claims to have chapters in Sydney and Glen Innes but the NSW Gang Squad said the clubs’s presence was nothing more than a “cyber” existence, with no clubhouse or even motorbikes.

“They tried to set up in Sydney and we shut them down. The same in northern NSW,’’ Superintendent Detective Debbie Wallace, head of the Gang Squad, said. “We have not seen physical evidence they are active apart from on Facebook.”

Detective Wallace said NSW’s tough consorting laws mean the traditional bikie “runs’’ and wearing colours in public had almost vanished.

Satudarah’s dream of establishing in Sydney was shattered in November 2015 when police raided a Bankstown garage being used as its first clubhouse.
