Hells Angels Shoot Mongols in Deadly Freeway Gunfight

By David Amoruso

Ride hard, and die free after a shooting on 15 Freeway on the Cajalco Road off-ramp near El Cerrito Road in Corona, California. An alleged group of Hells Angels and Mongols were involved in a high speed chase as they fired shots at each other. One biker died, while two others suffered gunshot wounds and were hospitalized. No arrests have been made so far.

And we thought this kind of stuff only happened in the movies.

Sons of Anarchy began its final season earlier this month, and as the fictional bikers were involved in numerous gunfights creating a body count Rambo would be proud of, many viewers were starting to think the show had completely lost touch with reality.

Of course, that was before last Saturday.

The shooting occurred on Saturday night, around 6:30pm, and according to a witness who talked to ABC7 Eyewitness News LA, two of the victims were part of the Mongols gang and residents of Corona.

The Highway Patrol told the Los Angeles Times that, “Several 911 callers said rival motorcycle gangs, the Mongols and the Hells Angels, were shooting at each other.”

Both motorcycle clubs were in the area to hold biker rallies. Hells Angels members had a rally at their Lake Elsinore meeting spot on Saturday afternoon and the Mongols were to have a similar rally in Riverside at night.

It is unclear how the two groups got involved in a shootout, but both clubs have a well-known history of violence and long running feud.

ATF agent William Queen spent 28 months undercover with the Mongols and was even patched in as a member. In his book Under and Alone: The True Story of an Undercover Agent Who Infiltrated America’s Most Violent Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, he writes, “[The Mongols’] most significant violent acts in the 1970s and ‘80s were committed against the [Hells] Angels, with whom they fought (and ultimately won) a seventeen-year war.”

Then again, this war never ended.

The two biker clubs were at it again in 2002, when they were involved in a shootout at the Harrah’s Laughlin Casino in Laughlin, Nevada, that left three members dead. Mongol Anthony ‘Bronson’ Barrera, 43, was stabbed to death, and Hells Angels Jeramie Bell, 27, and Robert Tumelty, 50, were shot to death.

Every time members of these two clubs meet there is bound to be bloodshed. No matter the time, place, or amount of witnesses.


New Law Would Call For Felony Charge For Fatal Moving Violations

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – There’s a new push for stiffer penalties for drivers who perform moving violations that result in fatalities.

Most drivers are protected by thousands of pounds of steel. But that’s not the case for everyone on the road.

In New York, if a driver commits a moving violation that kills a motorcyclist, the driver would only be given a traffic ticket. However, one group is pushing for harsher penalties.

American Bikers Aimed Towards Education President Andy Liuzzi lost a friend and fellow rider in July 2014. His name was David Sherry nicknamed Creto. His sister, Leigh Sherry, said Creto was riding his motorcycle when he was hit and killed by a driver in Guilderland.

“As he was approaching an intersection, a gentleman took a left hand turn in front of him; killed him on impact,” she said.

But Sherry said the driver walked away with just a traffic violation.

“Failure to yield right of way and a fine; that was it,” she said. “To have someone who took their life not be held accountable or have any consequences is the toughest one to swallow.”

When fellow motorcyclist and retired New York State Trooper Kenny Watson heard the story, he knew something had to be done. He sat down with lawyers to draft legislation that would create harsher penalties for drivers who take a life after committing a moving violation.

“Running a stop sign, running a red light, moving from lanes unsafely,” he explained. “They know what they’re doing, so they should be held accountable for it.”

The proposed legislation is called Creto/Kade’s Law – named after Sherry’s brother. It would charge drivers with a Class D felony if they commit a moving violation that kills a motorcyclist, bicyclist or pedestrian. The charge carries the weight of up to seven years in prison.

The charge gives families like Sherry and Liuzzi a bit of justice for the loss of a loved one.

“With a Class D felony, it’s going to haunt the person the rest of their life,” Liuzzi said. “Let that haunt them for the 40 years they deprived someone of living.”

Motorcyclists are hoping drivers will think twice about committing a moving violation and running the risk of taking an innocent life if the law passes.



Road rage biker chases car and smashes driver’s phone after good deed goes wrong

The biker spotted a wallet falling from the roof of a car leaving a petrol station and quickly went to pick it up and hunt down the driver to return it.

In footage – filmed by the biker’s helmet camera – the car speeds off with a smartphone still sitting on its roof.

The motorcyclist goes over to the fallen wallet, picks it up and races after the motorist in an attempt to return it.

But as he gets close to the car and honks his horn to alert the driver he is met with a harsh response.

The motorist gives him the middle finger and continues on his way.

Undeterred the biker follows him and waves the wallet around in the air until the driver realises what has happened.

He quickly pulls over and says: “Thank you so much, bruv.”

But the biker is still reeling from the middle finger he received and dishes out revenge by throwing the wallet into the car, picking the phone off the roof and throwing it to the ground before speeding off into the distance.

The clip – filmed in the UK – has racked up thousands of hits in only a day and viewers felt the biker’s actions were justified.

One YouTube user wrote: “Well done, motorcyclist!”

Another commented: “That car driver is a piece of s***. Deserved.”

And a third added: “Legend. I would have launched the phone at his head.”

But this isn’t the first case of road rage to wow the internet.

One chap took out his privates on a motorway during an argument.



Watch This Biker Do A Fly-By Window Smash On A Reckless Chrysler Driver

Both the biker and the Chrysler driver have no right to be on the road, but the actions of the minivan driver early on in the video clearly make the biker’s blood boil to the point of smashing his window with a rock!

What goes around comes around. If you have no problem throwing shit at someone riding a motorcycle, then have no problem at all getting shit thrown back at you. Seams fair enough right? Hope all you self-centered road ragers learned something new today! I know, its weird how that works. Its okay though, just learn from it.



Restoring a Harley-Davidson WLC in Less Than 10 Minutes

Everything is so much easier when someone else does it. It doesn’t matter if you’re talking about preparing a meal or fixing the roof on a house. Things also take much less time when you’re not the one doing them. (Right now I can hear my dad saying, “It takes two seconds,” when telling the high-school-age me to mow the lawn.) That’s especially true when someone films their labor in time-lapse fashion.

That’s what Rie-Store, a restoration shop in the south of England, did in fall 2013 when giving a Harley-Davidson WLC a new lease on life. It condensed one month of detailed, grease-and-grime-filled work into a clip that takes fewer than 10 minutes to watch.


Honda Races Harley-Davidson Cop

There are good cops and there are bad cops. I know that there are definitely more good ones than bad, despite the number of tickets I have received from assholes.

This video of a Honda CBR600RR versus a Harley-Davidson Electra Glide police bike does not feature one of those bad cops. The motorcycle officer in this YouTube video is one of the coolest bikers out there and is truly the kind you would want to hang out with and throw back a beer.



“This Really Does Justice’s Little Life, Justice” Bikers Ride in Escort For Justice Spencer

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) – 9-year-old Justice Spencer of Terre Haute tragically lost her life last week, when her battle with Fanconi Anemia came to an end.

Justice loved motorcycles, and she would smile and laugh whenever she would see one.

That’s why family, friends and local riders decided to Escort for Justice Spencer.

Three words describe the personality of 9-year-old Justice Spencer. Justice’s grandfather, Jack Higgins says, she’s one of a kind.

“Spitfire, bighearted, and so outgoing,” said Jack Higgins.

Justice loved motorcycles, everything from their looks to the sound of the motors.

Growing up, her family owned a bike, and when they had to sell it, “She cried, and he promised her a ride on it when he got a new one, and she never got it,” said John Higgins, Justice’s Uncle.

When she tragically passed away from Fanconi Anemia, a rare blood disorder, John Higgins knew something needed to be done. Higgins is a member of the Combat Veteran Motorcycle Association. That’s when he got the idea for Escort for Justice Spencer.

John Higgins said, “We support veterans and their families in times of crisis, and I just happen to be the veteran, now.”

Over 250 bikers joined in. Family members were not expecting this big of a turnout. It left Higgins, speechless.

John Higgins said, “We had over 200 people responding that they wanted to do this and a lot of them don’t even have Facebook.”

Showing that there’s a special bond between bikers.

Jack Higgins, said, “And we know she’s up there smiling, pointing, and laughing.”

Knowing family, friends, and complete strangers took one last ride, to remember one special little girl.

“This really does Justice’s little life, justice,” said Higgins.


Cop Threatens To Put Biker In Jail For Calling His Partner a Fcking idiot

In a video uploaded to Facebook on Wednesday, Michael Cates filmed a disturbing interaction between police and retired truck driver, Russel Ayers.

The recording shows police threatening Ayers with incarceration after he refused to apologize to an officer, after calling him a “f*cking asshole.”
The confrontation took place after the officer’s partner allegedly came close to plowing through a group of bikers on Highway 62 in Thomasville, North Carolina.

The cruiser was reportedly going 100 mph in a 60 mph zone, with no siren or lights.

That Time Janis Joplin Made the Hell’s Angels Do Household Chores

Forty-five years after her death by heroin overdose, Janis Joplin remains one of rock music’s most iconic voices, beloved for her style and emotional honesty — all of which are on full display in Janis: Little Girl Blue, the new documentary by Amy Berg that premiered Sunday night as part of the DOC NYC film festival. Joplin’s last boyfriend before her death, David Niehaus, was on hand from Hawaii for the panel discussion afterwards, where he shared a story that demonstrated just how fearless the singer could be. “One night we’re sound asleep in Marin County and we hear all this noise in the living room and she goes, ‘Honey, go see what that is,’ and I go out there and there’s five Hell’s Angels in the living room,” he said to Berg and Dick Cavett. “Two of them have guns in their belts, and they got the fridge open and all the food out. I go back in and she said, ‘Get rid of those boys, honey.’ I said, ‘Hey, babe, I don’t know, these guys have got guns, there’s five of them. I’m sort of skinny right now.’”

So Joplin took matters into her own hands. “She went out there and told each one of them — called them by name — she told each one of them where they were at, so to speak, and they left, and I thought, ‘God, thank God I didn’t have to try to do that,’” Niehaus continued.

Appropriately chastised, the biker gang then went on to do something perhaps only Joplin could have gotten them to do: household chores. “An hour-and-a-half later, they came back. They had a station wagon. They weren’t on their bikes, it was the middle of the night,” Niehaus recalled. “They came back and they brought ten bags of groceries, filled up the refrigerator, and they cleaned the house. They wiped the counters down and they left. So she had the power. Sometimes she was a little girl and sometimes she was a giant.”
