Protesters harass veterans protecting a fallen marine, then a patriotic biker club rolls in

Corporal Richard Bennet, a 25-year-old marine, died in a helicopter crash in Iraq, and his funeral became the target for the ever attention seeking Westboro Baptist Church.

A group of bikers known as “The Patriot Guard” arrived to form a shield with their bodies, bikes, and American flags protecting the grieving family of the fallen veteran from the disrespectful protesters.

World’s fastest SeaDoo flies over the water at 118 mph

If you’re a fan of speed you’re going to love the CRT Nightmare, a SeaDoo with a nitrous drag setup.

Carlito del Valle first broke the world record with a speed of 113.7 mph at a Tavares, Florida Hydrodrag race in 2016. He has since broken that record with a top speed of 118 mph on the same SeaDoo.

This rig has won multiple Hydrodrags since 2011 and doesn’t look like it’s slowing down any time soon.

Watch it slice through the water during a systems check in the video below.

 

BIKERS WANT CHARGES AGAINST DEPUTY INVOLVED IN DEADLY HIGH SPEED CHASE, CRASH

Dozens of bikers lined Main Street in Summerville to protest against the Berkeley County Sheriff’s Office Sunday. The rally follows the death of 30-year-old Robert Lee Clark.

Clark died during a high speed chase when his bike and a deputy’s cruiser collided.

The biking community held several different signs Sunday, some that read “Don’t pit motorcycles” and “Don’t wreck us, don’t kill us.”
Some in attendance Sunday said their hope is that deputy James Vansant is fired and charged with murder.
“Charge the officer with murder. That’s what this was. This was no different than if he would have shot him down in the back. He just used a 5000-pound bullet,” Dan Annesi said.
Dan Annesi didn’t know Clark personally, but he helped organize the protest after seeing the dash cam video.
The footage shows Vansant’s vehicle making contact with the rear of Clark’s motorcycle. Seconds later, Clark loses control, hits a curb and then hits a car. He was later pronounced dead at the scene.
“It wasn’t worth the end result. This was not a death sentence infraction. Killers get less than what Robert was given,” Annesi said.
Annesi and other bikers say they don’t condone Clark refusing to stop for blue lights but say the crime didn’t meet the punishment.

We don’t feel like Robert was correct in running. He was wrong for doing that, and he deserved any jail time that he may have received. But, that doesn’t justify officer Vansant ramming him in the rear to stop this chase,” Annesi said.
The sheriff’s office says the contact was caused by Clark slowing down dramatically after he appeared to miss a gear.
Annesi said no one should pit motorcycles. He also believes after watching the video that there were at least two points of contact between the deputy and Clark.
“They’re lying, they came out without even doing an investigation and came to their officer’s offense. Now it’s taking over a week, and we still haven’t heard anything. They said he only hit him once. That video shows two points of contact, so again why are you lying?” Annesi argued.
Autumn Fralix said she normally sides with police, but not in this situation. She feels the deputy shouldn’t have chased Clark.
“Call ahead, ‘Hey, we got a bike on the way.’ Run with it, follow behind him. You stop the pursuit, he’s going to stop the erratic driving 99 percent of the time. He’s going home. Sit there and wait for him to get there. That’s all he had to do, not kill the man,” Fralix said.

Fralix and Anessi believe this incident was an issue of the deputy not following policy.
According to the dash cam video, speeds reached up to 112 miles per hour. These bikers say they will continue to come out until the sheriff’s office charges Vansant.
“Any officer who decides to run down a motorcyclist or anything else, now you have us to stand back and make sure justice is served all the way around,” Fralix said.
The Sheriff’s Office would not comment on the protest, and the South Carolina Highway Patrol is still investigating the incident.

 

MEET THE GODFATHER OF OUTLAW BIKER CLUB, SATAN’S CHOICE

In today’s world of biker gangs, the Hell’s Angels reign supreme.

No other biker gang has the numbers, the influence — or the criminal reach — of the world’s most famous motorcycle club.

But there was a time when another club — a Canadian biker club — challenged the Hell’s Angels’ size, if not its influence. Its name was The Satan’s Choice Motorcycle Club, and its undisputed leader was Bernie Guindon.

By 1970, Satan’s Choice had some 300 members and chapters across Canada, making it the second largest biker club in the world. Guindon took the name from another disbanded club in Toronto, and he was president by the time he was 22. In those early days, he and his fellow riders were more rebels than criminals.

“They were scruffy kids who hung around hamburger stands and scowled,” long-time crime crime reporter Peter Edwards tells The Current’s guest host Laura Lynch.

“They were scowly kids who chewed their hamburgers in an angry way.”

Guindon’s pride and joy was a custom bike he christened “Wild Thing.” Edwards says he used to ride it around his hometown of Oshawa like a “conquering hero.”

But Guindon was a biker with a code. He valued loyalty above all else. He despised “connivers” and “rats.” Edwards says Guindon always prided himself on being old school.

“If you have a problem with him, you’ll get a punch in the chin. He won’t stab you in the back.”

As Satan’s Choice grew in size, it began to attract more unsavoury members, and the former rebels evolved into criminals. Guindon was never interested in gun crimes, but he was hardly a saint. He served roughly 15 years in prison, first for an indecent assault on a minor, and again for drug trafficking.

Edwards explains the first conviction came out of a sex party with several bikers and one woman. Guindon — 23-years old at the time — swore the sex was consensual. The woman claimed otherwise in court. She was 15-years-old at the time. Guindon told Edwards he thought she was 18 or 19.

If I was at war, Bernie’s the guy I’d want sitting next to me.’
– Peter Edwards on motorcycle club leader Bernie Guindon
Guindon’s prison stints scuttled a promising amateur boxing career. He won bronze at the 1971 Pan Am games and likely would have been on Canada’s Olympic team in the 70s had he not ended up in prison. Former champ George Chuvalo said Guindon would have had a great pro career.

“He knew what he had to do to be a good fighter. He had the stuff,” Chuvalo told Edwards for the book.

Guindon never turned pro — partly because he worried that an overzealous prosecutor might declare his fists “deadly weapons,” earning him harsher charges for his never-ending street brawls.

He was also a pro in womanizing. Guindon has been married four times, and lost count of how many children he’s had —somewhere between 11 and 16 — all but two from different women. He’s tried at various points in his life to connect with his many children, with mostly mixed results.

Guindon was only actively involved in raising one — a son he named Harley Davidson Guindon. Harley followed his father’s example into a life in crime, although Edwards says that wasn’t at his father’s urging. Harley Guindon has done several stints behind bars. Father and son both did time separately in Millhaven Institution, a maximum-security prison.

“I think [Bernie] is a complex man,” Edwards tells Lynch.

“He’s a very human person. And if I was at war, Bernie’s the guy I’d want sitting next to me.”

 

 

MOTORCYCLIST DIES AFTER BEING HIT BY VAN, DRAGGED SEVERAL BLOCKS

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – An 18 year-old city man died Saturday night after being struck by a vehicle and dragged for several blocks.

Police said that 18 year-old Christopher Lucero was riding a motorcycle on Manton Avenue around 9 p.m. Saturday when he was struck by a van. It dragged him for several blocks and then fled the scene, police said.

Eyewitness News located skid marks that stretched from the intersection of Manton and Greenwood, up Atwells Avenue, down La Vaughn Street and down Amherst Street — a distance of about a half mile.

Officers taped off several blocks for several hours Saturday night as they conducted their investigation.

On Sunday, police said they located the van involved in the hit-and-run, but didn’t offer information on whether the driver had been located or what charges might be filed.

Blonde has to answer a question in front of thousands of viewers, and she was “on the spot”

Sorry, but a good blonde joke is too easy to pass up sometimes.

80,000 blondes meet in a football stadium for a “Blondes Are Not Stupid” Convention. The leader says, “We are all here today to prove to the world that blondes are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?”

A blonde carefully works her way through the crowd and steps up to the stage.

The leader asks her, “What is 15 plus 15?”

After 15 or 20 seconds she says, “Eighteen!”

Obviously, everyone is a little disappointed. Then 80,000 blondes start cheering, “Give her another chance! Give her another chance!”

The leader says, “Well since we’ve gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place and we have the world-wide press and global broadcast media here, uh, I guess we can give her another chance.”

So he asks, “What is 5 plus 5?”

After nearly 30 seconds she eventually says, “Ninety?”

The leader is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh. Everyone is disheartened – the blonde starts crying and the 80,000 girls begin to yell and wave their hands shouting, “GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!”

The leader, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than good, eventually says, “OK! OK! Just one more chance – what is 2 plus 2?”

The girl closes her eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, “Four?”

Throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 80,000 girls jump to their feet, wave their arms, stomp their feet and scream…

“Give her another chance! Give her another chance!”

LOL!

Bank robber points gun at veteran’s kids, immediately regrets his decision

Surveillance video from a robbery at a Bank of America in Sarasota, Florida shows what happens when you threaten a veteran’s child.

Staff Sgt. Eddie Peoples was visiting the bank with his son when the 34-year-old gunman drew his weapon and started threatening four bank tellers. When he turned his weapon toward the customers, all bets were off.

“I’ve been through five deployments,” Staff Sgt. Peoples told Fox News. “I’ve fought the Muqtada militia, everybody you can think of, so weapons getting pointed at me, it doesn’t really bother me anymore.” Seeing a gun pointed at his two children was another story.

Like a stone cold badass, Peoples calmly instructs his children to lay on the ground, conceals their position with heavy furniture, then positions himself between his kids and the threat. The robber collects his cash and exits the building completely oblivious to the un-opened can of ass-whooping that’s walking right behind him.

With his children safe inside the bank, Peoples follows the robber into the parking lot. Peoples entered his own vehicle and immediately drove it to block the robber’s escape.

The petty thug pointed his weapon at Peoples, and Peoples dropped him like a bad habit. The best part? The robber didn’t even have a real gun, it was just plastic.
