Here it is. Kerri Krysko's second book Kerried Away has now been released in paperback and can be ordered from Chapters or Indigo. Although I have stopped making new posts on the blog I did say I would post a link to Kerri's new book when it is released and that day has come.
The revised second edition of her first book Kerri On, is now available at Chapters or Indigo and in electronic format on Google Play. As Kerri mentioned in an interview, although she associated with many of the big names in the local gang war, she has never named any of them because that is not what her book is about. All Hells Angels don't beat their wives any more then all cops do. I was able to interview the "Nanny" people refer to who was really their babysitter. Although she has not been named, she is a real person I met and had an interview with.
Although Kerri's second book Kerried Away is harder hitting then the first, the healing and inspiration gives the reader an inside look at a dark world she rose above.

Today is the day my enemies will rejoice. Today is the day I finally shut down the blog. All good things must come to an end. All the court stuff has been resolved. It's just that I've taken this as far as I think I can and there is no sense in repeating myself over and over. I will simply record my dissent and walk away. The bottom line is that my kids really want me to shut it down.
Although I have always been involved in some form of community service throughout my life I have always believed that no other success compensates for failure in the home. Although my kids are all grown up the back lash from this blog has indeed adversely affected them and it's time for us to move forward. This blog has never been about me. It's always been about the cause.
I was hoping to hold off until Kerri Krysko released her second book but that day has almost come and I will post the link when it is ready. I supported her cause because I believed she could become a powerful influence for good just like I supported TBM Fresh Start in Scandinavian.
Leaving the gang life and having a fresh start is a move in a positive direction. To do that we have to leave the life behind. We don't need to talk about it all the time. We need to talk about other things. We have seen how the gang life is filled with greed and betrayal. There is no loyalty or honour in it. There will always be crime and criminals. We need to be careful what we support.
What they did to Janice Shore was wrong. History has recorded that. As I have said there are many other bloggers that are prepared to take up the cause. I have said all I had to say. I have posted my e-book for free which basically summarizes my position. Peace. Just remember that life does not end at death and what we do in life echos in eternity. Carry on my wayward son.
Joey Verma killed Britney Irving to pay a debt. He didn't rip her off to pay the debt his debt was forgiven when he did the hit. He was promised the position of Vice President in the Kingpin Crew for murdering her. When that information went public the Kingpin Crew were disbanded.

New: Hiking, Snowshoeing and Kayaking around Vancouver

Global is reporting that former Vancouver Police Department detective Lori Shenher has released her book That Lonely Section of Hell: The botched investigation of a serial killer who almost got away. "In her book, Ms. Shenher chronicles the missed opportunities, lack of resources and jurisdictional challenges that plagued her investigation and resulted in more women going missing even as Mr. Pickton was on her – and others’ – radar."
It's all interesting but the main thing we need to remember is that Robert Pickton did not act alone so all the red hearing drama about why it took so long to catch Robert Pickton is pretty irrelevant to the question that asks why are we still refusing to look at other suspects?
The judge gave instructions to the jury that they could convict Robert Pickton of murder even if he wasn't the only person involved in the murders. The judge went so far as to say the jury could convict Robert Pickton even if he wasn't the main person involved just an active participant. The question is, if Robert Pickton didn't act alone, then why are we not looking at other suspects especially when there is a whole list of victims he hasn't even been tried on. That should have been the mandate of the Missing Woman Inquiry.
As soon as the Hells Angels were mentioned in the Missing Woman Inquiry, Wally Oppal shut down the Inquiry and turned it into a less adversarial Panel Discuss where he could more easily censor what evidence was submitted. He ruled out a massive amount of evidence base on his claim that the mandate of the Missing Woman's Inquiry was not to examine the possibility of other suspects. That makes him culpable in the cover up.
It all boils down to the Dianne Rock story. Dianne Rock claimed she was gang raped on the Pickton farm. That implies more then one suspect. Her friend Janice Edwards testified how she picked Dianne up at a gas station hysterical and beaten claiming she had been gang raped on the farm. This was an independent observer who saw the bruises and witnessed her fear and hysteria. I obtained a copy of the court transcript of her testimony at the pre trial and posted it online now that the publication ban has finally been lifted.
In Stevie Cameron's book On the Farm she was very clear about the Hells Angels involvement with Piggy's Palace and the Pickton farm. Page 137 of the book On the Farm states: "But the truth is that almost all the people in the community knew the Palace as a wild party place with drugs and prostitutes. And everyone knew that the bikers who attended usually finished the parties at their own place across from the Pickton farm, a clubhouse that had become infamous as a booze can serving alcohol and drugs to members and friends. By the end of 1996 the neighbourhood became known in criminal circles as a biker area, one controlled by the Hells Angels."
The Globe and Mail reported that the Missing Woman Inquiry was going to hear that off-duty officers “frequented” Piggy’s Palace. Wally Oppal shut down the inquiry before that evidence was submitted. Stevie Cameron's book On the Farm confirmed that allegation about Piggy's Palace and stated that "the place was full of cops too, lots of them, all in plainclothes." (p 138)

Growing up I always had a huge respect for the Chief. A mountain peak outside of Squamish. As a young child the sheer face seemed colossal. My martial arts instructor got into rock climbing and talked about climbing the face. I was like good luck with that. Then a few years ago someone said you know there is a trail to the top you can hike up around back. I had no idea so I decided to check it out. It's awesome. Second peak is a bit better then first peak. The hike is short and steep like the Grouse Grind and the view is indeed awesome. This is where I hiked again today.
When I first heard they were building a gondola at the Chief I thought it was going to suck. Instead of having to hike up you just take the gondola. However, the new Sea to Sky gondola doesn't take you to the top of the Chief. It goes beside it and far above it. So if you want all the breath taking views without the physical exertion, the new gondola is the way to go. It was packed on the long weekend though. If you take the gondola up there are still lots of hiking you can do. Sky Pilot is a good hike that is accessible from the top of the gondola. However several people have died doing it recently slipping on the steep snow pack. Even when there is no snow the summit looks pretty steep. Nevertheless, there are lots of scenic safe hiking trails from the top of the gondola.
Now that things have settled back to normal on the blog I thought it would be appropriate for me to point out the obvious. There are millions of blogs on the Internet. Everyone and their dog has one. There are travel blogs, crime blogs, cooking blogs, blogs about every subject under the sun.
Michael Geist is a lawyer that blogs about free speech on the Internet. He is very credible and his blog is worth following. With all the gang violence true crime is a subject that is steadily gaining popularity in the book stores. Consequently there are many crime blogs on the Internet. Mine is just one of many. Kim Bolan is a local journalist that has a crime blog. I started my web site and blog shortly after she did in answer to a grieving mother's plea.
Long before Kim and I started, Leo Knight started a popular blog called Prime Time Crime. He is a former police officer. Mike McIntyre is a journalist with the Winnipeg Free Press that runs a blog called Mike on Crime. He has also written a book called True Tales of Law and Disorder summarizing 20 years of crime reporting. Chris Doucette is a crime journalist from Ontario that writes for the Toronto Sun.
The Borderland Beat is an excellent blog about the Mexican drug war. Wikipedia states Borderland Beat is a prominent English language narco blog which is considered a leading source for news on the Mexican Drug War. The blog was started in April 2009 by an anonymous individual using the pseudoynm Buggs, who remains the sole owner. The blog has been referred to and quoted in the New York Times, Small Wars Journal and the Houston Chronicle.
Of course we remember Felina - María del Rosario Fuentes Rubio. She was a courageous blogger who ran a facebook group highlighting missing persons in her community and exposed cartel members in Mexico. When the cartel found out who she was they murdered her and posted a picture of her dead body on her facebbok account. My plea to her follows was to continue posting pictures of missing people but stop posting information about the cartel. It's too dangerous. Like the serenity prayer declares we need to have the serenity to accept things we cannot change, courage to change the things we can and wisdom to know the difference.
After my court case hit the newspaper another crime blogger who goes by the name Ace Ventura has taken up the torch and highlights Hells Angels involvement with criminal activity. One blog reader asked if that was my new blog. No it is not. If you look at his archives he has been going for quite a while. Everyone has their own writing style. He has a picture from the Simpsons on his blog. That's not my thing but realize many others like that show. Humor is a good thing.
When I first started my blog people thought I was Kim Bolan. I was like are you kidding? Kim is a lot nicer than I am. Now my identity has been released and people know who I am. The bottom line is who I am just doesn't matter. Belt Drive Betty and the Aging Rebel have their own blogs about biker issues. No one cares who they are. People just like to read what they have to say. The bottom line is if you don't like what I have to say, don't read my blog. There are millions of other blog out there you can read. So Dennis Watson runs Gangsters out.
Knowing that I was never a cop or a gang member sheds light on my background and perspective. I never sold drugs and I was never a narc. I was a Regional Coordinator with the Guardian Angels not the Hells Angels. I was trained in New York City and traveled around the world with the group starting up new chapters in Canada and the United States. When I was in New York City the first time I lived in a basement in Harlem and worked with Tut, the New York City Secret Weapon. When I came back to New York the second time I worked with Fox busting up crack dealers on the Deuce. Working with the community to get rid of crack dealers is what we did. I know what the New York model is because I was there. I saw it.
The reason I started my blog anonymously is because my blog isn't about me. I'm not trying to promote myself and run for office. I'm trying to promote a cause. Getting rid of crack dealers and the violent crime it brings to our community. I don't have beef with the Hells Angels collectively, I have beef with crack dealers individually. Selling drugs in clubs is none of my business. Giving crack to the homeless for free then beating the life out of them for payment is. That is exploitation. What they did to Janice Shore was wrong. Anyone who cannot see that is blind and heartless.
The other reason I started my blog anonymously is because the first thing these clowns do when they find out who I am is go after my daughter. That is low life. If you have beef with me, face me, don't go after my family. Blaze keeps posting my daughter's picture on the Dirty and repeats the same old lie over and over again thinking if he repeats the same lie enough times someone will eventually believe it. Then he calls me a liar. Blaze is the liar and is a false accuser.
My daughter has worked at various jobs sites over the last few years and tragically someone from each site usually recognizes her from what Blaze has posted on the Dirty. Other times the subject of my blog comes up and she's like F*ck my life. One time someone from her work came up to her and said those are some pretty mean things they are saying about your mother and she asked what things? About how she ran off with a member of the Hells Angels and left your father. She laughed and said that is so not true. My mother is afraid of her own shadow. My parents divorced years ago. The Hells Angels had nothing to do with it.

News 1130 is reporting that "Charges have been laid in relation to a counterfeit Oxycontin production facility. Riley Goodwin will be heading to court after the raid of a lab that was capable for producing 18,000 fake pills laced with Fentanyl per hour. Goodwin is charged with possession for the Purpose of Trafficking. Police found a pill press, a cocaine press, and $35,000 in the home the 26-year-old was renting in Burnaby."
VancityBuzz is reporting that "Police in Metro Vancouver have revealed that they have cracked down on a major fentanyl production operation in Burnaby earlier this year. According to RCMP, a counterfeit oxycontin production facility on the 5900 block of 10th Avenue in Burnaby was dismantled following the execution of a search warrant on January 7. In addition to the drug production equipment, police found a number of press stamp dies of “CDN 80,” the same stamp found on true oxycontin tablets. Pills recovered at the site marked with “CDN 80” have been confirmed by lab tests to contain fentanyl."
"RCMP began their investigation into a fentanyl production facility after the Canada Border Services Agency intercepted a pill press at Vancouver International Airport’s air cargo facilities in November 2014." Fake Oxy made with fentanyl. This is a big bust. Fentanyl is killing people.

Deja vu. The Salmon Arm Observer is reporting that "A stolen truck ended up leading the Salmon Arm RCMP to seize $420,000 worth of drugs and recover $300,000 in stolen property on Saturday. On Aug. 29, police received a report of a stolen F-350 with a camper from a residence in White Lake. As the investigation began, police received further information that a truck matching the description was seen traveling on the Trans-Canada Highway towing a black Wells Cargo trailer."
"The trailer was carrying a Harley Davidson motorcycle, which was later confirmed stolen. The motorcycle came loose and crashed into the ditch, while the stolen truck fled the scene. The truck was seen fleeing by Chase RCMP officers, who lost sight of it but was later observed by Salmon Arm members. The truck fled to a rural residence in Tappen with police following it."
"Upon arrival, police arrested the driver, but the other male suspect fled on foot into the woods. A third suspect was also at large and police began a search of the rural property. The search revealed a marijuana grow operation and a prohibited weapon. The second male suspect was quickly located and arrested. Upon searching the property, police located an ATV stolen from Alberta, the F-350 truck and camper stolen from Blind Bay, and a 2011 Kenworth logging truck stolen from 100 Mile House."
"As well as the marijuana grow operation, police seized a substantial amount of drugs including crack, cocaine, hash, heroin, crystal meth, amphetamine, psilocybin (mushrooms) and prescription drugs, as well as cash and drug trafficking paraphernalia. A few hours later, the third male suspect was located by police and arrested."
A stolen vehicle towing a stolen motorcycle that got loose and crashed in the ditch. The suspects ran from the police and led them to a grow op where more stolen property and a variety of drugs including crack cocaine and crystal meth. Who ran the last stolen car, boat and motorcycle ring out of Kelowna that was tied to Alberta. Only rats steal cars and motorcycles. Get off the crack. I wonder if they are friends of Uncle Joe. As Castanet points out "If you are running from police in a stolen vehicle, you may not want to lead them right to your property with a plethora of illegal things for them to find." Are you sure those guys aren't from Surrey originally?
News 1130 is reporting that "Three Surrey men suspected of trying to sell drugs have been busted by Langley Mounties after they decided to smoke some pot outside their car loaded full of weapons and drugs." I told you Surrey criminals aren't very bright.
News 1130 is reporting that a 74-year-old innocent bystander was shot to death in Abbotsford. HomicideTeam taking over the case. Police searching for suspects." Officers found a vehicle struck with several rounds. "MacDonald says it appears the man was just standing by a fence when a targeted shooting happened in the adjacent driveway. He says several homes in the area have security cameras so it’s hoped that footage will help with a suspect description."

Finally the Hudson Brooks story is making it's way into the main stream media. Front page of today's Vancouver Province. The headline reads: "Devastated mom demands justice in police shooting death of 20-year-old Hudson Brooks in South Surrey. Jennifer Brooks vehemently disputes the claim that her son was suicidal, calling it completely untrue and a false accusation.” In fact a witness confirms it.
The Vancouver Province explains: "According to the police, a call for service was received shortly before 2:30 a.m. regarding a man who was suicidal, screaming and in significant distress in the 1800-block 152nd Street. Officers who were in the detachment responded, located Hudson Brooks, a struggle ensued and shots were fired. Hudson was shot multiple times and did not survive. An officer sustained a non-life-threatening gunshot wound and was treated and released from hospital the same day. The only physical evidence recovered from the scene was police-issued equipment."
Imagine that. A police officer was shot, the suspect was shot dead and the only guns they found were issued by the police. Do the math. As I explained previously, this case was a tragic accident that has been completely covered up. More power to his mother to find answers on the record. That's not going to happen because of the legal liability that would incur. Perhaps the only way the truth will come out is in a wrongful death suit. The mother at least needs to file a Freedom of Information Act request for documents in the police report.
Hudson was a skateboarder leaving Bakerview park at 2:00 AM. The same park that was a known hang out for youth where Dario Bartoli was assaulted and murdered last December. A witness woke up to sounds of Hudson screaming hysterically "Help me they're trying to kill me" as he was running away from the park towards the cop shop. The witness saw him running and was going to get dressed to see if he needed help. Then heard six or seven gunshots and went back inside.
It is clear that this was not a suicidal youth trying to commit suicide by attacking a cop. This was a young kid hysterically running to the police for help because someone was chasing him. He wanted to live. Another sourced claims a rookie cop pulled out their firearm when the terrified youth failed to obey their direct commands and shot themself by accident while pulling out their gun. This shows the inherit problem of Depot. Brainwashing new recruits into believing that civilians have to obey their direct command at the snap of a finger or else. That has to stop. The police are supposed to serve and protect civilians not control and oppress them.
The public has a right to know who shot the police officer because it was not Hudson.
