The Christmas Truce

I remember hearing the story of how a remarkable ceasefire occurred on Christmas 1914 amid the first World War known as the Christmas Truce:

When I reflect upon the Vancouver gang war and all the lives lost - some innocent, most not, I'm saddened by the loss of respect for life and for public safety all in the name of the almighty dollar.

There is no honour in selling crack. There is no honour in shooting someone for money. Any 12 year old kid can pull a trigger.

Yet if they can have a ceasefire in the middle of World War I why can't we have a cease fire in the Vancouver Gang War? One day, one week. How about starting the New Year off with a Truce?

Stop shooting people in public. Stop shooting people for crack. The public will rat you out if you do. Let's hope for a better world in the New Year. One where our families are safe not threatened by criminals.

The DEA vs the CIA

The documented evidence of the CIA's involvement in trading drugs for guns makes one wonder about the logical extreme involving the DEA. On one hand we have an under cover organization zealously trying to stop illegal drugs in the U.S. while on the other hand we have another secret organization that is doing the opposite.

Some claim that since the DEA and the laws in the U.S. are so harsh against illegal drugs there's no way the CIA could be involved with it. Others declare that the CIA let the DEA be so hard on illegal drugs simply to illuminate their competition in the market. Most declare the whole mess a conspiracy.

Gary Webb threw the gauntlet down when he published his series of articles and book called the Dark Alliance:

Yet the Kerry Committee documented the allegations in a congressional hearing long before Gary Web's book:

Bob Perry had reported it previously at the time. After Gary Webb's articles were published there was a public outcry and the director of the CIA held a public meeting to appease the public in LA. At this public meeting former LAPD officer Mike Ruppert spoke out and said he was aware the Agency had been selling drugs in LA for years and had been trying to get that information out to the public.

Later DEA Agent Celerino Castillo also confirmed that drugs were being traded for arms out of El Salvador using U.S. military planes. He said it was so prevalent it had to be known. When he complained about it he claims he was told the DEA's hands were tied because it was an under cover CIA Operation:

Judge Robert Warner was a former Administrator for the DEA who went on 60 Minutes to complain about the CIA importing a ton of cocaine into Florida:

Judge Warner talked about the frustrations the DEA face when dealing with CIA under cover operations. Personally I believe the CIA is corrupt. I believe it always has been:

The problem is that the CIA has too much power with too little accountability. That is a recipe for disaster. They are mandated to use deadly force to protect State Secrets. That spells totalitarian government. It is a violation of the U.S. Constitution which I believe to be an inspired document and the Judaical scale to measure all other laws.

Barry Seal and Mena, Arkansa

We've established how the Hells Angels were connected to drug smuggling in one air force base at El Segundo.

The song I left my wallet in El Segundo by A Tribe Called quest was just ironic. Now let's look at Barry Seal and Mena, Arkansa.

Sarah McClendon was a famous hard hitting U.S. reporter. She questioned Bill Clinton about an Air Force base in Mena, Arkansa used to smuggle cocaine in exchange for arms for the Contras:

At first listening one is forced to ask what the fuck is she talking about? This is a quick overview of what went on there:

Mena isn't the only air force base that was used to smuggle cocaine. It's likely the most documented and became famous with the suspicious deaths of two teenagers who stumbled across something they shouldn't have and ended up dead as a result. Their death became a complicated conspiracy known as the Mena Connection.

That story is longer and harder to follow but the just of it is two young boys were murdered. Their death was made to look like a suicide that didn't make sense. The corner, Bobby Malick, not only falsified the boys death certificates, he tampered with the evidence which was shown after the bodies were exhumed and a second autopsy performed.

Turns out this was not the only murder reported as a suicide that Bobby Malick was involved in. Turns out that for some bizarre reason, Bill Clinton supported Malick in his position even after evidence about him was made public.

Barry Seal was the CIA Agent involved in the operation
who ended up murdered after he turned informant in 1984.

A little George Orwell indeed. Barry Seal was tied to Oliver North and Vice President George Bush Sr.

Bad Cops - Ken Houston and Rob Sidhu

Every country has police and prisons to support law and order. Some countries have a bad reputation for corrupt police that will let you off with a crime for a bribe. Any documentary on the Chicago mob will show that some police were corrupt as well as some judges and some elected officials. This was the wrong that Eliot Ness set out to correct.

If Al Capone or the Chicago Outfit called themselves a club instead of a gang, that would not change the primary business they were involved in. Nor would it change anything if the Crips or the Bloods called themselves a club to evade prosecution.

Some criminals cry fowl when their miss deeds are exposed and complain that I don't speak about bad cops. I've already spoken on the Taser inquiry at the Airport. I think those officers were within the legal parameters to taser the individual but they clearly over reacted by tasering him over and over again.

I don't think tasering someone over and over again falls within the realms of proper use of that device. In fact, I don't like the type of tasers police use now. A one shot cattle prong is fine but a gun that fires an electrode into the body connected to a cord where the officers can crank the ongoing voltage at will should not be used.

Still the peanut galley cry and claim that selling cocaine to kids is nothing compared to the occasional DUI. I disagree. I certainly don't agree with driving impaired. That can and does kill innocent people. However I do think that if some police officers get DUI charges that does not make the entire organization corrupt.

Conversely people will argue that just because some Hells Angels get trafficking charges that does not mean the entire group is a criminal organization. I disagree. When presidents and high ranking officials keep getting caught trafficking cocaine in Canada and when the club uses it's name and reputation to sell crack, then that club clearly becomes a criminal organization.

Nevertheless, since not all police or former police are noble and just I will indeed cite two cases of what I believe to be bad cops. The first is Ken Huston, the second is Rob Sidhu.

Ken Houston is a retired Winnipeg police officer. He retired from the force in 2003. January of 2007 he was caught in the same SUV as a Winnipeg Hells Angel charged with manslaughter named William Bowden. Police seized a 9 mm semiautomatic handgun from the vehicle along with a small amount of drugs. Both men faced numerous weapons charges as well as possession of a controlled substance.

In my opinion Ken Houston is a bad cop. Or at least a bad retired cop. The second case I will cite is Rob Sidhu. Another retired police officer who was charged with fraud to obtain information about the location of the Bacon brothers:
Here we have a former police officer using his former police connections to get information about rival gang members. Hells Angels associate Matt the Rat Schader was caught driving Rob Sidhu's car. That is not illegal of course but it shows another Hells Angels connection to another retired police officer involved in what would appear to be criminal activity. Fraud is a crime.

Makes you wonder how Winnipeg Hells Angel Ian Grant had confidential police files in his possession when they raided his house:

I've posted my conspiracy theory about the reason the Hells Angels associate gave information to the UN when the Hells Angels were really opposed to the UN and were secretly supporting the Bacon brothers.

Not only does it spell criminal organization but it also spells cheap and dirty like how the Hells Angels secured control of another puppet club, the Death Riders, after the Death Riders president was murdered:

Surrey Good Samaritan stabbed

I'm going to tie a recent stabbing with two other similar cases to demonstrate a pattern. The moral is not mind your own business. The moral is there are still good people out there.

Recently a Good Samaritan form Surrey was in Vancouver and saw a man from Langley beating a woman in public. He was 19 and the man from Langley was 31. The Surrey Samaritan and his brother came to the woman's aide. The Langley attacker went back to his car, got a knife and stabbed the Surrey Samaritan several times.

Last year a young man was seen knocking an elderly woman down in what appeared to be an attempted robbery at the Broadway Sky Train station. A witness confronted the suspect and chased him down but backed off when the assailant pulled a knife. After the witness spoke with transit police at Metrotown, he ran into the suspect again and the suspect stabbed him in the stomach then fled the scene.

July 2007 Chris Hudson, an Australian Hells Angel who patched over was seen beating a woman in public. Two men came to the woman's aid. A lawyer and a Dutch backpacker. Chris Hudson then pulled out a gun and shot all three emptying the clip on the lawyer as he laid helpless on the ground. The Dutch backpacker and the woman he was assaulting were wounded and the lawyer was murdered. The lawyer was the father of three young children.

These three senseless acts of violence were all directed at Good Samaritans - people who were coming to someones aid. Some would say, that'll show them for getting involved yet the Dutch backpacker after his release from the hospital said he would do it again because what Hudson was doing is wrong.

All threes of these cases were violent assaults against woman in public. It's fine to wear a pink ribbon and repeat a few slogans but these three cases show how far we need to come against public violence.

When a man beats a woman, there is nothing noble in that. The day before the CBD shooting in Australia Chris Hudson grabbed a stripper in a bar by the hair, dragged her outside, threw her to the ground and kicked her in the head. When someone in the bar objected to him grabbing the woman by the hair he lifted up his shirt, showed the guy his Hells Angels tattoo and said "Don't you know who I am? I'm a Hells Angel."

Not only was Hudson doing something cheap and weaselly in public but he used the name and reputation of the Hells Angels to discourage anyone from interfering and coming to the woman's aid. All three cases show that violence in society still need to be addressed and that reporting violence to the police is a civic duty.

Anonymous Posting Disabled

I've disabled the anonymous posting function on my blog. If you want to threaten me you can send me a private e-mail. Uttering threats anonymously on a public blog is lame.

I'm all for free speech. Hells Angels are free to set up their own facebook support groups and forums. People are free to support the Big Red Machine if they so choose. Just like I'm free not to support the Big Red Machine and I'm free to state why without having to worry about them harming my family.

Threatening to rape my daughter is absolutely deranged as is threatening anyone in my family. The one good thing from all those deranged comments on my blog is that the world can get a glimpses of the truth. Threatening to harm someones family is twisted.

When Robert Shannon was charged with smuggling cocaine for the Hells Angels, he used the Hells Angels name and reputation to threaten his co accused so his co accused wouldn't cut a deal and testify against him. They sent his co accused a letter that said we know where your grandmother lives.

Grandmother?! Hells Angels threatening a guy's grandmother? You can't get much lower than that. This is why people are ratting them out now. Because they have become the biggest rats of all. Maybe they can use some of that $11 million Walter Stadnick and Donald Stockford earned from selling cocaine and hand out a couple of toys at the Toy Run. That'll make up for all the lives they've destroyed and it will sure fool the masses.

For those who are not fooled there's Crime stoppers:

Doug Vanalstine

Doug Vanalstine was also arrested in the latest under cover police sting targeting rival gangs. He was seen with Clay Roueche in Vietnam and he was in that famous family photo of the UN:

He was charged with Clay in the U.S. and is waiting extradition there as well as facing the new trial here. Likely the local police will be thrilled to extradite him to somewhere the courts aren't such a joke.

I misread the article in the Sun about him shooting someone in the foot over loud music. I had it backwards. I thought the victim was the guy in the truck that refused to turn down the loud music. At first I thought at least he showed restraint and put one in his leg.

Turns out that Vanalstine was the one in the truck that was playing loud music. Don't you just hate those hillbillies in pick up trucks that blast loud music? Turns out someone asked Vanalstine to turn down the music and Vanalstine pulls out a gun and shoots him. That's pretty cheap. He's a bit old to be an obnoxious punk.

I guess it's just my nature when i see a conflict to find out who the good guys are and who the bad guys are. Turns out in some cases both guys are bad. There is nothing noble about selling crack or selling date rape drug. Both sides do that. The UN have a nice motto but it's hollow.

I remember speaking with a cop at Whalley and the cop excused himself, went to talk to a few kids then returned to the conversation. He apologized for the interruption and said those kids were with the UN and he just wanted to make sure they knew they weren't welcome here and had to move on.

I was somewhat shocked because I saw the Hells Angels enforcing for the crack dealers there only a few weeks prior. I was also shocked because they looked like your average Surrey kids. They didn't look like notorious gangsters at all.

You have to admire groups that stand apart from the Hells Angels and not bow down to become puppet clubs but if they're doing the same thing, they're really no better. The Osoyoos story is a good example of why we need to clamp down on criminal organizations.

Any 12 year old kid can pull a trigger. Guns empower the small and weak. Swarming empowers the small and weak. So do gangs. When the gangs start intimidating the police so they don't prosecute them to protect the public then we need to call in the Gang Squad to deal with them so law and order prevails.

Wayne Scott

Well Wayne's World just got one step weirder when the father of Jarrod Bacon's girlfriend just got arrested along with Jarrod and was charged with conspiracy to traffic cocaine. Under cover cops posing as Mexican cartel offered them 100 kilograms of cocaine.

The police sting involved both factions of the two rival gangs, the UN and the Bacon brothers revised leadership of the Red Scorpions. Wayne Scott is also the grandfather of Jarrod Bacon's child.
This guy is no godfather. He's just old. He looks like Arnold Horshack as a senior citizen. What a role model. Trafficking cocaine. Sounds more like Jerry Springer or a bad reality TV show.
I'm glad to see the police went after both rivals not just one but we need to remember who the real puppet master is pulling the bad bacon's strings.

Peter Leask should be hanged for treason

Well we've certainly gone from one extreme to another. Here in B.C. we've gone from the Hanging Judge to judges who should be hanged. Have you ever been on a tour of the parliament buildings in Victoria? They have actors and actresses that portray characters in history that join the tour.

One of those characters is Chief Justice Mathew Begbie. He was referred to as the Hanging judge because he sentenced so many criminals to be hanged. Back in the day hanging was a form of judicial punishment for serious offences.

Back in the day, hanging was a judicial punishment for treason. Not any more. We can debate capital punishment until the cows come home. The fact is treason is a serious offense. I can find no other adjective to describes Peter Leask's latest decision:

It is a serious offence when a government official betrays the trust of the people they were elected to represent. So too when a judge appointed by our elected officials betrays the trust they were given by the people. This is why we need a mechanism in place to replace bad judges. Peter Leask isn't the only bad judge in B.C. but right now he certainly is the worst.

Red Scorpions and the Hells Angels

Jason Brown was described by police as an associate of the East End Hells Angels when he was arrested as part of E Pandora. Yet, he was just found with 2 kilos of cocaine, one kilo of meth, guns, vests and Red Scorpion gear.
Some speculate he has changed affiliations but I disagree. I think this confirms my earlier suspicions about the Surrey Six Murder. In the Surrey Six murder the founding members of the Red Scorpions were executed along with two innocent bystanders. Before that we are told the Red Scorpions were affiliated with the UN.

My theory is that the Bacon brothers are the ones who changed affiliation and wanted to take over the Red Scorpion leadership to make them associates of the Hells Angels just like the change over in the Independent Solders did. Police claim the IS are now associates of the Hells Angels but they certainly weren't in the beginning.

If this is true, then we can clearly see who is really responsible for the violence in the Vancouver gang war.

The Hells Angels come to Canada

Although the Hells Angels have been around for quite a while they have only been in Canada a short time. In that short time they have risen up to become the post powerful criminal organization in the country.

The Hells Angels didn't come to Vancouver until 1983. So the old farts haven't always been members of the Hells Angels. That was when the Gypsy Wheelers in White Rock and Satan's Angels patched over. Later than same year Toronto mob boss Paul Volpe was murdered. Since then all the other MC clubs have either patched over or gone to war with the Hells Angels.

Interesting to note that although Toronto mobster Peter Scarcella started off as a driver for Toronto Mafia Boss Paul Volpe, the National Post claims Scarcella was the last known person to see him before he was shot in the back and found in the trunk of a car. The speculation has risen that since Volpe was shot in the back, he was shot by someone he knew.

Interesting to note that this same Scarella who has aligned himself with Teflon Don in Montreal was with Toronto Hells Angel Paris Christoforou when they tried to kill Mike Modica at a cafe but paralyzed a mother instead.
In 1987 Maurice Boucher joined the Hells Angels in Montreal after serving a 40 month sentence for armed sexual assault. He rose up in the ranks quickly and became president of the Nomads. The Rockers sold drugs for him while in that capacity. The Rock Machine fought against him for control of the drug trade in Quebec.

The Hells Angels in Canada have nothing to do with riding motorcycles. Now it's all about selling drugs.

Hells Angels seized ASSets

OK this post is going to be a work in progress. I'm a bit slow. A friend just told me the Coquitlam clubhouse had also been seized under criminal organization legislation. I found a YouTube video of that event dated October 2007. I was aware of the Naniamo clubhouse seizure but not the Coquitlam one.

I'm going to do some more digging and form a list of seized clubhouses. Which of course explains why the Hells Angels don't want the courts to recognize the fact that the Shadow clubs are affiliated so they don't get seized as well.

Halifax was seized:
Oshawa was Seized:

Interesting to note that aside for the usual trafficking of cocaine the Naniamo clubhouse was also under investigation for conspiring to keep a common bawdy house and procuring:

I had to look up what that meant. Another interesting connection to the Surrey crack ho allegation.

DFFD Deviants Forever, Forever Deviants

London, Ontario clubhouse seized:

Thunder Bay clubhouse seized:

Niagara Falls clubhouse seized:

Gerald Ward, head of the Niagara Falls chapter plead guilty to trafficking cocaine:

Toronto clubhouse seized:

Stuck in the Middle with you

We seem to be going in circles with the bizarre denial that the Hells Angels Shadow clubs have anything to do with the Hells Angels which proves the Hells Angels lie consistently.

They said the Hells Angels and the Outcasts were not affiliated in any way with the Hells Angels. Bullshit. The guy who answered the door at the Outcasts clubhouse said rumours claiming the Outcasts were connected to the Hells Angels are lies. Yet he said that while he was wearing a Hells Angels support shirt and a East Vancouver Hells Angels hat.

Now they say that guy was an idiot and is no longer affiliated with the group. They still claim the Jesters and the Shadow club are not affiliated with the Hells Angels. Bullshit. The "Shadow Club" is in the same building the Outcasts were in right beside Gus' Shop. Gus is a known Hells Angel.

It wasn't just one idiot that blew the secret connection to the Hells Angels. Whiterock Sargent in Arms Villy Lynnerup was caught red handed with Hells Angels papers connecting the Vancouver chapter to the Outcasts and the Whiterock chapter to the Jesters. He even had a copy of the dumb clown logo:

So here were are. Clowns to the left of us, Jokers to the right and we're stuck in the middle with you:

Will the real clowns please leave Surrey. The Shadow Clubs are affiliated with a criminal organization. Their clubhouses should be seized under the criminal organization legislation.

Too much sympathy for the Devil

The Rolling Stones wrote a famous song, Sympathy for the Devil. Obviously when an artist writes an allegorical song or paints a picture, people can and do interpret it in their own way which may or may not be the actual intent of the artist. One person sees something and another sees something else.

I don't see the song Sympathy for the Devil as glorifying the Devil at all. I see it as a well written 1st person narrative of history wherein the narrator is one of the prominent characters. Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste. Then it describes various historical events where the character was present and states Hope you guess my name.

The song helps us realize who the real driving force behind those historical events was. Obviously we are all responsible for our own actions yet we can be influenced by good or by evil. Denying the existence of evil is just that. Living in denial.

Some heavy metal groups over played the dramatic shock value of satanism to sell records. Judas Priest 666 the number of the Beast starts off with a dramatic narration by Vincent Price quoting from the Bible. Yet Mick Jager claims that wasn't his intent with his song.

Personally I find it very enlightening and helps us clearly see that there is too much sympathy for the devil:

Everyone quotes Aleister Crowley as a satanist yet he claimed to be a ritual magician that dabbled in the Quaballa - Jewish mysticism relating to the tree of life. Nevertheless, it's pretty clear that much of Crowley's work leans toward satanism as does most of the ritual magic world. Two extremes are the book of the law and Liber 777.

The number seven in Jewish tradition represents perfection. God is perfect. Measurements in the Temple were reflections of that perfection. The number 6 represented something that was almost perfect but flawed. That became the historical tradition used to represent the devil. Lucifer who was a fallen Angel that went bad. Very bad. He became the father of all lies so to speak who uses lies and flattery to deceive the hearts of man.

Ritual magicians invoke the names of the four arch angels as they trace the pentagram protecting the magic circle. A pentagram right side up represents God while a pentagram upside down represents the devil. It's all pretty confusing and esoteric but the point is that when you twist truth it leads you in a very different direction than one would normally want to take.

Light, inspiration, harmony, peace, justice, truth - this is the direction most seek. Darkness, despair, turmoil and tyranny driven by lies is what most intelligent beings strive to avoid. Both use the term love. The love of good versus the love of evil.

The Book of the law on the other hand is another story. It's founding premise is: Do what though wilt shall be the whole of the law. Some can try and twist this to mean it's a John Lennon smoke a blunt and imagine everyone living in peace and harmony like Woodstock. Unfortunately reality strikes and without rules or laws the dream of Woodstock turns into the nightmare of Altamont.

They say Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law. I can do anything I want and if you have a problem with that you are deceived. Well what about stealing? If you are allowed to steal from me am I allowed to steal from you? What about murder? If you are allowed to murder me, am I allowed to murder you?

What about rape? What if I think that rape is wrong? Does that mean I am deceived? What about incest? If I believe molesting children is wrong does that mean I am deceived? The book of the law is clearly flawed.

In contrast, religion provides us with the golden rule: treat others the way you want to be treated. Do unto others. That makes much more sense. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Personally I don't see God as a vindictive cop who spanks us for eternity for making a set of finite mistakes.

Personally I see God as the epitome of justice. If we believe in stealing, then we are grouped with people who steal. If we believe in murdering then we are grouped with people who murder. If we believe in committing rape then we are grouped with people who believe in committing rape. Only there are no victims to rape. I once had a friend who said hell is where the glasses have holes (you aren't able to drink alcohol) and the women don't.
I also believe the golden rule is important because after this life we will experienced the pain we have caused others in this life. If we committed murder we will experience the pain and loss the family felt which resulted from our actions. Indeed Hitler experiencing the pain he caused others would be frightening.

They say wickedness never was happiness. I don't believe the Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law can lead to happiness. I believe treating others the way you want to be treated does. Anyone with a brain can see that the old heavy metal t-shirts glorifying 666 and satan are dumb and short sighted. Charles Manson is not good. Neither is Adolf Hitler. Just ask Sir Mick.

London Hells Angels and 666

Take a good look people. This is what an idiot looks like. A grown man wearing a T-Shirt that says 666. Well a small grown man. Come on kids, this isn't High School. That really looks dumb. That's like wearing a shirt that says I love Charles Manson or I love Adolf Hitler.

Just ask Mick Jager, there's too much sympathy for the devil. This Big Red Machine support gear is now available on E-bay. I thought it was a joke. They've shortened the term Support the Big Red Machine to Support your local 666. The London chapter call themselves Hells Angels MC London 666 England. I don't know which is worse, a grown man wearing a teenagers 666 shirt or a grown man wearing a clown Jesters logo. Are those support shirts made out of Kevlar?

It's way worse than a punk rocker in Trafalgar square. Punk rockers are nonconformists not Satanists. Somehow I don't think that's anything any of the noble blood spilt on the beaches of Normandy would support. I think that's what they fought against.

I've talked about Bob Green and 666 Holdings. Now I hear Bob Green has 666 tattooed on his hand or wrist. That is weird. It certainly isn't hard core. It's just dumb, dumb, dumb:

Yo Brixton, don't be buying any of that shit from those dumb hyphies. They're worse than the Bill. They're Nazis who get rich off exploiting the poor. Keep the faith. The herbs of the Caribbean. That scar face shit is whacked.

Surrey's Hells Angels Shadow Club

Looks like they changed the name of the Outcasts clubhouse around the corner from Gus' in Surrey. Now they just call it Shadow Club for short. Like that's not obvious.

Back in 2006 Kim Bolan reported on the Outcasts in the same building:

The guy who answered the door said their being connected to the Hells Angels was a bunch of lies but he was wearing a Hells Angels support shirt and hat when he said it. Kind of makes what he said difficult to believe.

So now they just call it Shadow Club for short. At least that's a bit more honest. It is a better logo that the Clown Jesters. I still don't understand how they are allowed to operate a shadow club for a criminal organization in Surrey. Especially right around the corner from Gus' Shop. Everyone knows about Gus' affiliation.

I guess I'm just slow. The Vancouver Sun reported on this the same time they reported on the Jesters:
BTW The Shadow Club is on Google Street view too. Just look under Bentely Road in Surrey. You can see Gus' Shop in the background. They share the same parking lot.

Alfonso Gagliano and the Mob

In the Macleans spotlight on the Italian mafia in Montreal and how it encompasses the construction industry as well as politicians, they asked Michael Ignatieff about how far this mafia reaches into federal politics.

Why on earth would they ask Iggy anything. Aside from being an idiot, his party was the ones steeped in the sponsorship scandal and one of their politicians was listed in an FBI document as a made member of the mafia in Montreal with connections to crime families in New York.

The Tories had Maxime Bernier. He dated Juilie Couillard who had ties to the Hells Angels. He resigned after leaving confidential documents with her. Nevertheless, I don't think that was nearly as big as scam as Alfonso.

The Montreal Gazette claims Julie Couillard had previously been married to a former Hells Angels associate Stephen Sirois. They claim Sirois sold drugs for the Rockers, a puppet gang of the Hells Angels. Not to be confused with the Rock Machine who were a rival gang not a puppet club.

The article claims Mom Boucher gave Sirois an ultimatum. Sirois had to choose between marrying Julie Couillard or his life selling drugs for the Hells Angels. Seemingly Julie Couillard had previously dated someone Mom Boucher thought was an informant. Thus the ultimatum. Choose between marrying the woman who dated an informant or your job selling drugs for the Hells Angels.

Sirois chose to marry Couillard but the marriage only lasted two years. After the divorce Sirois became a police informant and has been living under witness protection. Julie Couillard was not directly connected to the Hells Angels and the "sex scandal" was in my opinion blown out of proportion. When she contacted the media and told them Bernier had left confidential documents with her it sounded like she was trying to get him in trouble.

The documents weren't information about the Hells Angels or their rivals, it was about the war in Afghanistan. Interesting to note Couillard claimed Bernier said the war in Afghanistan had nothing to do with liberation but controlling the opium trade. Interesting indeed.

However, the Alfonso Gagliano scandal was real. He was the scape goat for the sponsorship scandal. Given. He was convicted of wrongdoing. His best defense was the same as Oliver North, I didn't do anything I wasn't authorized to do. The initial Gomery report found him guilty of deliberate dishonesty not just negligence. Yet the sponsorship scandal was the tip of the iceberg.

The New York Times quoted an FBI document wherein FBI informant Frank Lino claims he was introduced to Gagliano at a mob meeting in Montreal where he was told Gagliano was a politician and a made member of the mafia in Montreal connected to the Bonno and Gambinno crime families in New York. I didn't even realize what the term made member of the mafia meant until a recent documentary on the Chicago mob.

Gagliano, the one found guilty of dishonesty not just negligence, cried fowl and sued for defamation. He lost:

He claimed that it was because the government had seven lawyers and he only had one and that the court said you can't sue the crown. Personally I think that is untrue. I think you can sue the crown. I think the overwhelming evidence of his connections to the mob was the reason he lost his court case.

In 1994, La Presse reported that Gagliano was the book keeper of Agostino Cuntrera, cousin of cocaine baron Alfonso Caruana. Caruana was involved in the gangland slaying of Paul Violi in Montreal and was found guilty of murder. According to Wikipedia, in the /80's Caruana was involved in heroine trafficking. The funds were deposited in Canadian banks and channelled through Swiss bank accounts. From his mansion n London, he supervised a heroine pipeline from Thailand through England to Canada.

After the pipeline was dismantled he escaped and moved to Montreal where he set up a cocaine ring with the Colombian cartel. In 1994 the police seized 5497 kilograms of cocaine and Carauana was sentenced in absentina on July 30 1997 to 21 years and 10 months for mafia association as well as for heroine and cocaine trafficking. In July 1998 he was arrested in Woodbridge, Ontario for trafficking cocaine from Columbia to Canada.

Alfonso Galiano was Caruana's cousin's book keeper. Now, according to Frank Lino the made member of the mafia lives on a vineyard in Quebec paid for by a recent loan from the Canadian Government:

Alfonso Gagliano is from the same small village in Sicily that the Cuntrera-Caruana mafia clan is from:

The Scourge of Brutality and Corruption

Macleans magazine recently highlighted the problems Montreal is having with organized crime. How it encompasses the construction trade and politicians including city hall. Interesting to note that the latest wave of organized crime isn't coming from the French or the English in Quebec it's coming from the Italians.

Italy is even more famous for mafia and organized crime than Chicago. Recently authorities in Italy released screen clips from a surveillance video of a public mafia execution in broad daylight.

Take a look at the guy. He's a fairly big guy with a pork belly. His victim is a much smaller and older man. Given the size and age difference it would have been dishonourable for him to beat the old man up. Yet even worse he shot him. Once in the chest and he fell to his knees clutching his chest. Then again in the back of the head as he was laying face down on the ground. That was cheap, dirty, brutal.

This morning the Italian Police with the help of the military arrested two mafia crime bosses - Pasquale and Carmine Russo. It's hard to believe these were major crime bosses. They were in hiding for 17 years. Ya see them hide their face from the media like rats? That's as pathetic as paper Mario in Montreal. Mom Boucher was hard core. He'd look you in the eye and smile before a firing squads. These other pathetic slobs are rats.,6e79cb45-7836-4d8f-96b2-6ee6426eccf2,7e2363dd-9e22-4310-bdbe-5b1fab8423f0

Bernardo Provenzano was arrested in 2006. Maybe it was a different clan but Bernardo was more like Mom Boucher. He was hard core. He murdered anti mafia judges. He's the guy they made the movie the Godfather about. Yet even he had been on the run for more than half his life. He was arrested at the age of 73.

We've talked about how gangs are like swarming. It is cheap and cowardly for a group of guys to gang up on an individual. Pulling out a gun and shooting an old man is just plain cheap. Especially when it's done by a fat ass slob.

Recently we saw the gory photos of two young Canadians who were buying drugs for the Hells Angels in Puerto Vallarta brutally shot up and murdered lying in pools of blood. It was horrible. It's kind of like bringing a knife to a gun fight. Chivalry is gone. It's not about strength or martial arts ability any more. Now it's all about who can be the most brutal and ruthless. Who has the least morals.

You pull a knife, I pull a gun. You pull a gun, I pull out a machine gun. You pull out a machine gun, I shoot you in the back or in your sleep. These felons then somehow ask for respect. How absurd. They will be feared but they will not be respected. The more brutal they become the less respect they find.

Do people respect Clifford Olson? Do they respect Robert Picton? I think not. Surely these thugs must realize that. Everyone has moral standards. Some are a lot lower than others but even in prison there is a standard of what is acceptable and what is not. We hear that child molesters are looked down upon in prison and are likely to get shanked.

Not long ago the Aryan Nations prison gang turned on the Hell Angels because they felt killing (Margo Compton's) young children violated their standards. As a result they broke their silence and ratted Otis Garret out. Ratting out a rat isn't being a rat. If the Aryan Nation prison gang can do it, so can we.

La Familia Michoacana

303 people tied to La Familia drug Cartel in Mexico have been arrested across 19 states.
We all know the Mexican drug cartels are ruthless and a lot of money is involved. Interesting to note about this cartel is that they have a religious twist and claim their dealers don't do the drugs they traffic.

Kind of like that woman I saw selling crack at Surrey Central for the Hells Angels who said "I don't smoke the shit, I just sell it." Somehow I don't see that as any more noble. They are willing to exploit addicts but smart enough not to become one.

Seemingly La Familia started in the /80's as a group of vigilantes set up to fight kidnappers and drug cartels only to become ones themselves:

Clearly that is a good example of what happens when you take the law into your own hands. It's hard to understand how a group of people united to fight against a particular type of oppression end up becoming the exact same as the original oppressors they were set up to combat. We see it all the time but I have a hard time comprehending why that transformation happens. Absolute power corrupts...

Battle of the Bands - Two Hells Angels compared to two Mongols

Alright, I don't support the sale of drugs but lets take a look at two famous Hells Angels and compare them with two famous Mongols. Then you will see why I prefer Mongols to Deadheads.

Sonny Barger and his pal Otis Garret. I say pal because Sonny Barger started the Oakland chapter where Otis is from and Sonny Barger attended Otis Garret's trial. Otis Garret is still honoured on Sonny Barger's Vegas web site as one of the filthy Few.

Let's take a look at Sonny Barger first. He's small, untrustworthy, vulgar and a pig. He looks like an old Sonny Bono. I do not see him as an American legend. That is bizarre. His pal Otis Garret is a deviant. Birds of a feather.

Otis is scrawny and old. I'm not sure what that is in the background but if he is pretending to me a Free Mason I have to shake my head. Otis doesn't know what the word fidelity means. He was convicted of running a prostitution ring in San Fransisco along with several other Hells Angels. The woman who testified against him ended up dead along with her twin 7 year old daughters.,4502047
Sonny Barger attended the trial. He did and does support his pal because Otis was on official business. These two are trash. They are the scum of the earth. For them 1%er means bottom of the barrel not cream of the crop.

In contrast let's take a look at DOC Ruben Cavazos and Jesse Ventura. Doc Cavazos wrote a book called Honor Few, Fear None.

He is well spoken, well groomed and well liked. He was arrested with several other Mongols not long ago in a major under cover operation which resulted in weapons charges, drug charges and the unprecedented seizure of the clubs logo.

A Mongol claimed responsibility for killing a San Fransisco Hells Angel chapter leader. Shortly after that the Feds came in and seized their logo. I find that very suspicious. Especially when San Fransisco was the hub for the CIA Contra crack cocaine distribution ring that supplied Freeway Ricky in LA during the American crack epidemic. Documented by accredited reporter Gary Webb in his book Dark Alliance who is now dead of a suspicious suicide.
San Fransisco was also where the Hells Angels brothel called the Love's Nest was located:

I was disappointed to hear about Mongol drug seizures. Nevertheless, Reben Cavazos is a far more noble character than Sonny Barger or Otis Garret. Before his arrest and the federal seizure of their logo, he ran a blog on his book's web site. Someone commented on it about Jesse Ventura at one time being a mongol and he responded by saying he still is one.

I found that interesting so I started to research him a bit. Jesse Ventura was a former Governor and professional wrestler. He went through Navy Seal training, served in Vietnam and was part of a branch of the Navy Seals. Demolition specialist I believe. I found his comments about 911 very interesting. Another reason the Feds didn't like him making the seizure of the club's logo all the more suspicious.

Jessue Ventura is educated and very well spoken. Both he and Ruben Cavazos speak highly of military service. They are respectful and walk with honour unlike the bobbsey twins Sonny Barger and Otis Garret. They are deviant trash.

Everyone has strengths and weaknesses. As I said I am disappointed in the Mongol drug seizures. Mostly meth I believe. It appears they used that to fund their arsenal collection in their conflicts with the Hells Angels. Kinda disappointing that the Hells Angels had to get the Po Po to take them out. That was so cheap.

The Mongols appear to be like other biker clubs big on strippers and that kind of party lifestyle. Normally that's something your supposed to grow out of when you get married and have kids. Yet the Hells Angels are way worse. It is my firm belief that notwithstanding that inclination, I do not believe you would of ever found Mongols or at least these two Mongols at Piggy's Palace or associating with the likes of Dave Picton. Nor would you ever hear them say killing a crack ho is population control. That is disgusting. Especially when the Hells Angels turned them into crack hos in the first place. I think that Doc and Jesse treat women better than the Hells Angels because they have a stronger self image.

I'm not saying we should invite Mongols here to shoot Hells Angels. Hell we have plenty of people here willing to do that. I'm just saying that Hells Angels do not represent real bikers. Most of them don't even ride. I'm saying that the Mongols were better than them and it's important to remember they had to get the Police to take out the Mongols are weren't able to do it themselves.
Ruben Cavazos and Jesse Ventura are better than Sonny Barger and Otis Garret. Much better. Seizing the Mongol's colours but not the Hells Angels colours who are guilty of far worse crimes is wrong. Very wrong.

An Olive Branch for the UN

Ongeai shimasu. What is the value of a human life? What is the value of a member of your crew? Will you protect them? Will you be loyal to them? I am told the UN have a noble motto. It is: "Honor, Loyalty, Respect." Indeed those are noble qualities. Yet somehow they get very distorted in a gang bangers world.

Let's take the Hells Angels. They have no loyalty. They say they do but the bottom line is if you are one of their associates and you get caught doing something, Rainbow Ricky is like we don't know him. There is no loyalty in that.

Loyalty doesn't mean protecting someone in your crew if they do something really fucked up like mutilate a crack ho or kill an innocent bystander in cold blood. There is no honour in that. The Chinese have Wing Chung and Yip man. The Japanese have Kendo and Bushido. That is honour.

Remember all those Bruce Lee movies. Kinda like an eastern western. The good guy vs the bad guys. Bruce Lee's character in those movies fought against the bad guys who were ruthless and smuggled heroin. Crack is no better than heroin, it's worse.

Feel the love Clayton Roueche had for James Coulter when he helped him overcome his crack addiction:

If Clay cared for James that much, how can we in good conscience exploit other brothers, sisters, girlfriends and daughters by turning them into crack addicts and getting rich by exploiting them. Where is the honour in that?

Look at how much risk is involved in taking all that BC Bud and trading it for cocaine to be sold here as crack. As soon as cocaine is involved people go crazy. Friends betray friends for more money - greed.

Everybody thinks Scarface was someone to look up to but he's not. He was a deranged fuck up who had no value for human life. If you value your friendships and cherish your crew, how can you in good conscience send them to trade bud for cocaine knowing the risk of them getting murdered is high as is the risk of spending an insane length of time in a US prison. If you care about your friends and if you cherish the members of your crew how can you do that?

Why would you ask them to take that kind of risk? So you can drive a new Hummer or SUV? Those cars look dumb. Whatever happened to Tokyo Drift or the old school muscle cars? Now that is honour. It has class because it's something you build. It's not a brand new Harley with a gay ass faring on it.

You're going to ask your crew to risk their life or chance spending their life in a US prison so you can have lots of money? There is no honour in that. The only honour is protecting your friends from that.

My olive branch is this: If you want to sell pot, feel free but stop trading the pot for cocaine. It destroys our society and puts your crew at huge risk. I ask you again, what is the value of a human life? What is the value of a member of your crew? Will you fight for them? Will you die for them? If so, will you live for them? Sometimes that's harder.

Think about how this would change our society. If they can use methadone to get off heroin, they can use pot to get off crack. Those skinny bone rack crack addicts would all of a sudden want some food to eat and they wouldn't be taking an axe to a Senior citizen for five dollars to buy more crack.

People would make money just not as much money but the risk would be far less so you'd be protecting your crew. I wanted to give the same Olive Branch to the Hells Angels but they don't have the values you aspire to.

The Hells Angels lie. If they would hire someone to kill an enemy, don't you think they would also rat out one of their enemies to the police? You really think they wouldn't do that? Who do you think ratted out Clay? The Hells Angels say one thing to your face but they say something else behind your back.

Yet I appeal to you to stop the violence. I've seen the you kill one of ours, we kill one of yours in other parts of the world and it doesn't work. That kind of violence only begets more violence until we are all left blind. Stop shooting people in public. Let's build the kind of society that we can be proud of. One where our mothers, sisters and grandmothers are safe. That is honourable. UN or as they say in Japaneses "Own" - Honour.

Gay Gangster fight

Speaking of gay ass gangsters, this is a video clip of a gay gangsters fight on Mad TV: Holy Brokeback Mountain Batman, is this what they mean when they say Jesters? After all, they do represent the red, white and blue. They're the rainbow.

Hired Hits and Gory Dismemberments

The question I pose is, was Joe Bralic killed by LA drug dealers or was it a hired hit? Was Elliott Castaneda killed by Mexican drug dealers or was it a hired hit? Was Gordon Kendall and Jeffry Ivans killed by drug dealers in Puerto Vallarta or was that a hired hit by locals?

Since so many of these drug dealers get shot here is it so unrealistic to believe locals paid to have them killed out of the country? Dealing cocaine is without question a deadly business but let's face it, these guys want to sell their product. We are the ones fighting over who they sell it to.

One of the guys who drove down to meet Joe Bralic in LA was drug dealer Derrick Madinski. The Tyee reports that Madinski told the Vancouver court his drug deals started at $5,000.00 and soon escalated up to $80,000.00. In April 2001, Madinski said he witnessed Mihaly Illes shoot his friend Dowling in the head twice while the three were driving around in Dowling's van. The claim was Illes was upset Dowling, who was a crack addict, was stealing his product.

Madinski testified at Illes' trial stating that after shooting Dowling Illes cut off Dowling's head and dismembered his body while he watched. Then both of them burried Dowling's body in two separate locations in Squamish. Besides testifying to his part in the murder, Madinsky testified about his role in the cross border drug trade he was involved in that ended up killing Joe Bralic.

If Madinski was involved in the cross border bud for cocaine drug trade, which group was he with? The UN or the Hells Angels? He must have had an affiliation.

We know that Elliott Castaneda who was killed in Mexico had an affiliation. He was with the UN. But he was Mexican. Isn't it more likely someone from here hired the hit on him? The Hells Angels work with the UN but claim they're not welcome in the province and they will pound anyone who does business with them. Did the Hells Angels do the hit on Elliott to cut out the middleman and buy direct? Did the UN retaliate and have Gordon Kendall and Jeffry Ivans killed in Peurto Vallerta in retaliation since they were making connections for the Hells Angels?

That is clearly speculation but it makes you wonder. The bottom line is that the Hells Angels are exploiting kids like Gordon, Jeff and perhaps Joe. Those kids are dying while the Hells Angels who don't even ride motorcycles are profiting from the business without assuming any risk.

At the trial of contract killer Mickie (Phil) Smith the court was told one of his murders was done for the East Vancouver chapter of the Hells Angels. Smith killed Paul Percy Soluk at a crack house in Surrey and said a man he called Yurik helped him chop up and dispose of the body. Smith said "Yurik's not an Angel but he works with the Angels. I know he's done a lot of hits."

Hells Angel Neil Smith was convicted of hiring Wayne James to murder Sean Simmons in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia:

This has gotten completely out of control. The Hells Angels are a criminal organization and their clubhouses need to be seized under the criminal organization legislation. Anyone who does business with them is a liar and a fool.

Anton Brad Hooites-Meursing

Anton is an interesting character. I don't know much about him but he has been referred to as a crew jumper. Some hate him, many fear him. He admitted to killing gangster John Lahn but said it was in self defense. It was a hung jury so he was let off. That was appealed and he's facing a third trial for the murder:

Anton's lawyer submitted evidence to the court that former gangsters had been tortured by Lahn's henchmen. Ironic after last night's rebroadcast of the movie Boondock saints. Lahn was a bad guy. Did Anton act in self defense? That will be the question the next jury has to decide. It's kind of a wild west defense. The other guy drew first. But they're all involved in criminal activity.

I'm told Anton ratted out the Bacons and help Eileen Mohan. Yet it turns out that was false so someone is trying to set him up. I wonder why. We know he killed John Lahn. I am told he's killed two others but haven't found any charge or documentation for that. We know he was at the castle fun park meeting with the Bacon brothers and Independent Soldiers. We also know he was the one who set up Joe Bralic with the LA dealers:

The Tyee claims Anton was born in Canada but grew up in Long Beach before he was deported back to Canada 10 years ago when he was in his early 20's. Anton is known as Compton in Canada or Blanco with his Latino friends which means whitey. The Tyee reports Riske as claiming Anton is a loose cannon that carries a gun with him everywhere and often shoots it off in the street.

James Riach also attended the castle fun park meeting and seems to have ties the Independent soldiers gang which is tied to the Hells Angels. Riach's Yaletown home was found containing 8 guns, cocaine packaged for resale, bullet proof vests and tens of thousands of dollars cash. Police told the court they found a framed picture of Anton is Raich's bedroom. In his bedroom? That's a little creepy:

The heckler claims Anton was involved with the Buttars and the Adiwals. The thing that I find interesting is why did the heckler think I was Anton? Does he and I have beef with the same people?

Who Killed Joe Bralic?

Joe Bralic wasn't a gangster, he's a casualty of war - the drug war. He didn't seem to have an affiliation. He appears to have been another body builder lured into the trap of easy money that wasn't so easy and paid for it with his life.

He's the guy that went to LA for a brief "holiday" and ended up dead. The Tyee wrote an in depth two part article about the mysterious event calling it the deal that killed Superman:

Unbeknown to his family, the clean cut, well groomed body builder started selling pot. Innocent enough. Then he was trapped by the quick money that can be made trading B.C. Bud for cocaine in the U.S. and selling the cocaine back in Canada. This seems to be where all the huge money is made but the repercussions are deadly.

I see it as greed. Selling a little bud isn't good enough. The lust for dump hummers or expensive cars and a fast lifestyle causes people to drop their standards and sell crack. Even if it's indirectly, that is what the cocaine ends up getting sold as. Cheap and highly addictive creating addicts with broken lives that will kill their mother for five dollars for more crack. There is no honour in selling that kind of rat poison on the street.

So Joe Bralic goes to LA to make the deal. Seemingly the guy who set him up with people in LA is Anton Brad Hooites-Meursing, a local bad boy who attended the castle fun park event with the Bacon brothers and the IS.

Two other criminals Bralic befriended who actually went to LA with him were Garry Favell and Derrick Madinski. Bralic's body was dumped in an alley around 1:00 PM on a Thursday. That same morning Favell and Madinski had checked out of the same hotel into one down the street. They must have known something was up. They came back to Bralic's hotel around 3:00 PM and asked the maid for the key to his room so they could check on their "friend" who was not answering the door. Yet they left LA and returned to Canada without him and without filing a missing person report. With friends like those, who needs enemies.

It appears that Bralic met with the LA cocaine connection around noon. Some claim he was haggling over the price which is unlikely. Others claim it was a straight robbery which is more realistic. Since he had no gang affiliation, the LA drug dealers had nothing to lose by shooting him and taking all the BC bud while they keep the cocaine they were suppose to trade for it. Even more money for them. Think about it, people who sell crack have no morals. They are not trustworthy. Period.

The Tyee article explains that with a gang affiliation dealers are less likely to rob you and shoot you because your gang will retaliate. An informant for the article gave the Hells Angels as an example. Somewhat Ironic. However, Bralic didn't go to LA alone as was thought. Anton made the connection for him. If Anthon has ties to the bacon brothers and the IS maybe Bralic thought he did have the backing of a gang. Why would Anthon hook him up without a gang?

Why didn't Favell and Madinski come with Bralic to the meeting? Or did they? Why did they change hotels that morning? Why did they return to Bralic's hotel room after he was killed, gain entry and return to Canada without filing a missing person report? Why didn't his girlfriend who drove to LA with Favell and Madinski to meet him file a missing person report? Here I thought Matt the rat was bad. Seems like more birds of a feather.

The moral of the story is steroids don't make you bullet proof. Selling pot is one thing but as soon as you cross that line of trading B.C. Bud for cocaine to be sold as crack, the risk of ending up dead is dramatically increased. People who profit from the sale of crack have no morals and can not be trusted so matter what they say. Friends betray friends on a regular basis over the greed of a fast buck.

Last night they had the movie Boondock Saints on TV again. It's kind of a funny movie about two guys in Boston who end up killing two organized crime figures in self defense and go on to exterminate criminal trash who evade the law. It's funny if you look at all the murders like a non reality based western. However, as tempting as that may be, I don't support murder.

Maybe I'm just getting soft as I get older. I guess I just value human life. Murder is really serious. Life does not end at death. Committing murder isn't something we can repay or replace like stealing something from a store. Stealing a life is irreplaceable. You can't give that back and it effects parents, children and siblings forever. What we do in life, echoes in eternity.

We need to set standards and draw lines. I said draw lines not do lines. We need to stay away from the cocaine, crack and meth and we need to value human life more. Murder isn't any more glamorous then selling crack. It's cheap, dirty, senseless. We need to open our eyes and see that greed kills. It kills friendships. It kills people and it destroys lives. Buyer beware.
Think about it. Bralic goes to LA to trade B.C. Bud for cocaine. Where did he put all the B.C. Bud, in his carry on? Not likely. His girlfriend flew out to Saskatchewan to meet up with Favell and Madinski who drove there from Vancouver. They drove across the border at North Dakota and met with Bralic who had driven there from LA. That's a long drive from LA. Then they all drive to LA together, his girlfriend in his car and Favell and Madinski in the jeep.
Do ya think that maybe the B.C. Bud was hidden in the jeep? Or at least picked up by the jeep after they walked it across and stashed it? If Bralic was trading Bud for cocaine, the Bud had to of come from somewhere. Favell and Madinski are the prime suspects. Was Joe Bralic robbed by a LA dealer or betrayed by his own people like so many others in the Vancouver drug war.
Interesting to note that the Tyee claims the Hells Angels had tried to recruit Bralic for Ultimate fighting and attended his funeral. If the Hells Angels tried to recruit Bralic for Mixed Martial Arts and attended his funeral and if the Independent Soldiers and crew from the castle fun park meeting are linked to the Hells Angels, who realled killed Joe Bralic? People who profit from exploiting these kids are just as guilty as those that do the hit.
