There are several news stories to catch up on but I just wanted to pause and restate the obvious while I share three disturbing images that are permanently cemented in my mind. Kim Bolan is obviously doing a great job covering the Surrey Six trial and even tweeting a play by play. However, there are two recent articles about the trial in the Vancouver Province that I want to cite.
In one article it refers to a merger of sorts between the Red Scorpions and the Bacon brothers. However, it’s pretty obvious it wasn’t a merger it was a hostile take over. That’s why they killed Cory Lal. They wanted to take over the Red Scorpions. I submit that they wanted to take over the Red Scorpions for the Hells Angels just like what was done with the Independent Soldiers. The money Jamie Bacon was trying to extort out of Cory Lal wasn’t for him it was for Larry Amero and the Haney Hells Angels. Larry Amero was partying with the Bacon brothers at the time.
In this other article it concludes that the Crown's theory is that the slayings happened during a war between rival gangs for control of the drug trade. The Bacon brothers took it over for the Hells Angels. Every time we hear a report on the Surrey Six trial we need to remember that. This second article mentions Person X and implies he wasn’t just in on the conspiracy but actually participated in the murders. I find that rather disturbing.
Nevertheless, the first image I want to share is the one that was painted early on in the trial and that is of each of the slain victims lying face down on the ground with their heads covered as they were shot in the back of the head and executed. That is a horrible image. There is nothing cool, noble or respectful in it. I don’t want to hear one word about how anyone who testifies in this trial is a rat. That is offensive. Anyone who doesn’t testify in this trial is a rat. Larry Amero and the Bacon brothers are the biggest rats on the field. Betraying people for money is not honorable.
There is nothing admirable about murder. Any kid can pull a trigger. Executing someone in cold blood to make some money is the epitome of greed. The other image I have was from Christmas morning last year when I saw Janice Shore in a coma at the hospital. A wee angel sleeping after both sides of her head had been caved in with a hammer. There is nothing cool, noble or respectful about that brutal murder. Reporting that person to the police is not being a rat. Failing to do so is.
The third image I have is when I went to Kelowna to see the Britney Irving murder trial. I will never forget the picture of her dead body they showed in court. She was shot twice in the back with a shotgun slug. Then while lying on her back she was shot twice in the front to make sure she was dead. The image I have that will never leave me is the expression on her face. Her mouth was slightly open and it looked like she was cringing in pain as the last moments of pain she felt was frozen in the expression on her face.
I’m not sure which pain was greater. The pain of being shot with four shotgun slugs or the pain of being betrayed by someone she genuinely loved and trusted. There was nothing noble or respectful about shooting a woman in the back to pay a debt. I am told it was for a debt owed to the same person who recently called Mad Child a b*tch on his instagram. Who’s the b*tch now? Reporting these scumbags to the police is not being a rat. Failing to do so is.
Speaking of after hours booze cans in Surrey, let's not forget the one that sources claim was run by Jesse Haddan right by the Pickton farm and Piggy Palace. Sources claim Spike and the Haney Hells Angels ran Piggy Palace not Dave and Robert Pickton. After that closed sources claim Jesse ran one across the street. Which makes ya wonder who is running the one at 91 and 147A Street. Sources claim Hal Porteous used to run a booze can for the Hells Angels near 88th Ave and 132nd Street from 1997 before he got his patch until 2000. But I guess that was part of Operation Phoenix which the upper brass scuttled. I wonder how La JJ's is going for them now?
Let's not forget that Gino Zumpano is the President of Brussels House of Chocolates. We might want to boycott that business this Christmas realizing how much violence those guys are responsible for. I guess Gino isn't bullying the DJs at Brandy's any more since they got their ass kicked there by the UN. Nice diamond hoops Jesse. They look G alright but it's not gangster.
Speaking of Haney Pickton sleaze, one blog reader pointed out that this picture from Kim Bolan’s web site Inside the Angels has two of Spike’s henchmen in it. The blond taller guy facing the camera is Brian (Bags) Airth. The smaller guy on the right also facing the camera is Niño Justin Pace, the sergeant at arms of Haney.
Nino is the dirt bag that has his induction date the same year as the murder of Ernie. Back in 2000, Bags was pulled over in Montana riding a murder suspect’s motorcycle. Montana Police didn’t realize until later that Airth was wanted by the Immigration and Naturalization Service on a murder warrant from British Columbia.

Today is the one year anniversary of the brutal assault that put Janice Shore into a coma from which she never recovered. She died two months later in the hospital. Yesterday I picked up the garbage around the tree she was found beside and made a small memorial. Today someone had already tore it down. It’s sad but it goes far beyond that. That assault and the attempt to censor the memory of it represents a great evil. As does our criminal negligence in allowing the unbridled drug related violence to continue outside the Front Room in Surrey.
Recently after Surrey broke the record for the most number of murders in one year, Dianne Watts used the opportunity for another publicity stunt and promised the world she was going to create a new task force to get to the bottom of it. As if we didn’t already know the cause. One blog reader was somewhat skeptical of her latest promise and referred to her new task force as a talk force. Indeed that is all it is. Just more smoke and mirrors hiding the obvious.
Let’s take the most recent homicide in Surrey for example. Forming a new talk force to find out what caused that murder is rather pointless since we know it happened at an illegal after hours booze can the neighbors have been complaining about and trying to get rid of for seven years. Ignoring those complaints for seven years is criminal negligence. Creating a new task force to investigate the problem now is simply fraud.
The Janice Shore murder is no different. Hiding the brutality of that assault and failing to address the cause of it is another criminal act. Janice Shore was beaten into a coma from which she never recovered. On one side of her head her temple was caved in. On the other side of her head her jaw was caved it. Those injuries had to have been inflicted with blunt force trauma. It looked like a hammer was used on her head. In addition to that one witness claims her eyes were poked out. That level of brutality is disturbing. Hiding the brutal nature of that assault is wrong. Hiding that isn’t to protect the integrity of the investigation. It’s to protect the appearance of a politician’s career.
If Janice Shore was murdered for a drug debt then every drug dealer that sells crack outside the Front Room is a suspect in her murder. Giving the homeless free crack then beating the life out of them for payment is predatory. When we let that happen knowingly we are criminally negligent for the violence that exploitation creates.
All these task forces as well as my blog and all the good intentions in the world mean absolutely nothing if we let crack dealers sell crack outside the Front Room. Those crack dealers are very violent and very predatory. The Surrey Leader referred to it as the dead zone. That is where Janice Shore was last seen before she was brutally murdered. We don’t need any more talk forces. We need to stop letting crack dealers sell crack outside the Front Room at 10667 135 A Street. It’s that simple. That is the New York model. Pretending that we are doing anything to stop the homicides in Surrey while we let them sell crack outside the Front room is fraud. That’s all there is to it.
Tonight I lit a candle in memory of Janice Shore the patrol saint of Whalley. The memorial may well have been ripped down and her life cut short like a candle in the wind yet her memory lives on. Life does not end at death. Justice will not sleep forever. Truth crushed to the earth will rise again.
Speaking of violence against women, today is the one year anniversary of Janice Shore's brutal assault in Whalley. She was beaten into a coma and died two months later in hospital.
Someone had placed a Native prayer tie on the tree. Now there's a Christmas wreath and memorial for Janice. If you'd like to bring some flowers, balloons or Christmas ornaments to decorate Janice's Christmas Tree you can find it at the foot of 135 A street off 105 A Avenue.
The Surrey Winterfest continues - Remembering Janice Shore.

So Kerri, thanks for agreeing to do this virtual interview with me. To start off, I have to say I’m quite impressed with your book and your campaign to help expose one of the darker sides of gang life that most deny exist let alone want to talk about. That takes a great deal of courage. So you were married to a full patch member of the Hells Angels for ten years, is that right?
I was exclusively his for 10-12 years. He may not have been exclusively mine but I was his. Our marriage, if you can call it that was quite frankly a joke. We were officially married 2 years.
Without getting into the details of your books, as I understand another is on it’s way, you describe your relationship with that particular member of the Hells Angels as abusive. Did he ever hit you or threaten to hit you?
He did more then hit and threaten me , he almost and I say almost broke me of all my self-worth. He had me question my sanity more than once.
Divorces and custody battles are always messy. Marriages often break down. That’s a part of life. Yet it’s hard to see kids suffer and get caught in the middle. The mudslinging in court is often toxic. Yet there is no excuse for a man hitting his wife. There’s nothing manly about it.
I think that’s a big problem in the world not just in the gang life. Let’s face it, many cops have been convicted of assaulting their wives. Even Rob Ford was charged with domestic assault.
I guess my point is that although domestic violence is by no means limited to gang life it is a big problem there as well. In Kelowna, Don Lyons and Donnie McWhirter from a Hells Angels puppet club called the Independent Soldiers both have recent convictions for assaulting their girlfriends. Even Ryan Holt from the UN has a long list of assaults and threats toward his ex girlfriend.
Some of these guys get all defensive and say even cops beat their wives. I’m certainly not disputing that. One former cop from Alberta was recently convicted of shooting his wife in the face. I’m just saying that domestic violence in the gang life does exist and is a big problem. Would you agree and would you say that could possibly be part of the false illusion the gang life promises?
Domestic Violence comes to men as well. I have seen brow beaten men that look down in a conversation and scurries off to do their woman's bidding. A man who does their best to make a woman happy only to get screamed at or told they didn’t do it right. Isn’t that abuse as well??
I believe we are stereo typing my book or voice simply to young woman or girls influenced by a lifestyle, when in fact a man can be influenced and abused too.
My book is for everyone, it is a true story about life in general, roads that take you places you might not want to be and the road that can lead you home, back to who you truly are. Life is rough, but we all deserve to be heard. Yes I am a hells angel’s ex-wife and no other has wrote their true story before. That makes me the first woman to share but I say this , would any other woman have been able to write this book without sharing secrets or without being vindictive, I do not know. I know I wrote to share that every life is an illusion of what you bring to the table, how you live and who you are. We are not all the same we are all uniquely different.
I have had just as many males write me a fan letter as I have had women. My book is not meant to judge but to heal, to show the world yes it has been done before and yes you can Kerri On.
Good point. You clearly can help both sides. Yet there’s no question you can help a whole group of people that I can’t even comprehend let alone reach. Attractive young girls that are drawn into the gang life and the illusion it promises. What do you think is the big draw to young girls into the gang life? I can understand the money. There is a lot of money and that is a huge temptation but does it go beyond that?
I will say this and this only, perhaps a lump sum of money comes in here and there. A few presents as well, gifts I shall call them, but add a regular paycheck up over time and it equals to the same amount. What I am trying to say is living real, brings a more realistic sense of living, as opposed to fast cash that comes and goes. But you do not really learn that until your an adult yourself.
Perhaps with the west coast there is exuberant amounts of money within the gang life, but in other parts of the world there isn’t. The love of life and a family that will accept you no matter how messed up you are. There is loyalty as well as boundaries you don’t want to cross, with any sort of life or lifestyle. Where some might find pain others do find happiness.
This last few questions is better answered with one of the last paragraphs of my book " Be careful who you label or judge, you never know if that person is truly what you are saying , or just a simple person looking for love to fill an otherwise empty void." [Link to book trailer]
Is there some kind of acceptance and loyalty gangs promise that might appeal to a young woman who might feel like an outcast in her own home or school?
I have had my family treat me life an outcast my whole life. I have ran to places just to have a place to lay my head at night. Being a mother myself now I could never imagine doing that to my own child , giving them a feeling of homelessness. I believe any person, man or woman will almost always turn to places that accept them. I have a family I thought would read my book and knock on my door and finally say I'm sorry, we understand now or even give me that hug and recognition I have been missing my whole life, because I finally gave them answers to what I really did go through, and they really cared. Instead, I’ve only been shunned by them, left in the dark and burned. Cycles start a lot earlier then when a teenager acts out of control or who they date.
I recently watched this show the other night , called Surviving Evil , I am taken aback by it , what these individuals have went through , the way they spoke about it with such strength and courage . I watched the enactments of their ordeals , I haven't been able to get that show out of my head for days now. I can't believe I went through some of those very same things, except almost daily or weekly. Some of those very same people are doing things with their lives now to help others, its unbelievable the world we live in. We almost become submissive to our surroundings, adjusting to it, until we either fight or flight!
What resonated with me and that show was the family who was there for them (victims) at the end of their ordeal. I believe whats allowed me to be strong , has been I was told I deserved the treatment I received ,I never got the same care from the people who were supposed to love me and care about me. Tom that's what makes my book so important to me, so I can be there for others who have no one . Perhaps why you are on a crusade with Janice Shore, because she needs someone to fight for her justice as well. Now that's what I'm talking about! Being there for the ones who need it.
Tom you ask why people are drawn to a certain lifestyle I can only say it in one word - Acceptance.
Does the gang life fulfill it’s promises of acceptance?
I have had my family treat almost as worse as my own ex-husband so I will say this once again to you Tom as I have said in previous interviews. I have been promised a lot of things in my life, but the only promise one does have that is true and real, is from yourself. Only you can vow to be better and do better. If a person is looking in places to find the elusive feeling of belonging chances are they don’t belong.
I know I am being evasive but I try my hardest not to judge and not to label for we all have demons upon our back and skeletons in each closet. Do I agree with hurting another to get ahead? NO I do not. Do I want a better life for all of our people? YES I do. Did I write my book to expose wrong doings done to me by others? NO I didn’t. I wrote my book to give credit to another who might be going through something similar or perhaps what a loved one is experiencing.
I have people thinking it’s cool to do an interview with me just to say the name Hells Angels, I have others freaking out that they might be in my book, and I have a family I thought would read my book and knock on my door and finally say sorry, even give me that hug and recognition I have been missing my whole life, because I finally gave them answers to what I really did go through and they cared. Instead, I’ve only been shunned by them, left in the dark and burned.
I have such a wide range of reactions it is all so overwhelming. I do know one thing I haven’t turned my back on this world yet and I wont’t rich, poor , black or white we all bleed the same, we hurt differently but we are all people who live by our own set of rules. Yes I have a story and I will share it no matter the reaction. I am helping others and it gives me strength. Perhaps my family is lost, but in turn I have a whole other family in this world embracing me.
I saw your interview on Alberta Primetime with Jenifer Martin. It was impressive. I guess the story broke in Alberta because that’s where you’re originally from is that right?
Yes I am from Alberta but I would say I was raised here in BC mostly. Its a wonder why I haven't had any interviews out here in BC but from my local newspaper whom I did approach, as I felt it was unfair I hadn't done any interviews from BC since going Viral in countless newspapers worldwide.
I noticed an article about your book from the Edmonton Sun made the front page of the Toronto Sun and the Ottawa Citizen. Books don’t normally do that do they?
From my understanding this doesn't happen to self-published books. I have broke records twice now , first by being the 1st woman to share her true story and come forward in regards to being an Hells Angels ex-wife and second landing Nationally in all bookstores across Canada at Chapters/Indigos , now even in Barnes N Noble in the USA. Its been extraordinary the demand for the my book. I am not a typically self-published book though, I did things as a traditional publisher would have done in regards to marketing. I only released the Paperback and Hardcover book for "Kerri On", I never released the E-Book at all. I want the E-Book to be more polished with a traditional publisher behind it as well as the 2nd Book in my series "Kerried Away". I have a unique first time ever book and story that is meant to go worldwide and be properly distributed. I have demand now in the UK as well as Australia with sales as far as there. I would ultimately like to revise my 1st book in regards to a few things. I am confident this will happen. I was even shocked to find out in a 3week period I sold thousands of paperback. I've actually had to step away from media for a short time to regain my balance.
I hear Chapters is having a hard time keeping up with the demand.
Chapters is keeping up now that they are stocked and I also believe by me stepping away from certain media interviews for a short while. They have been absolutely amazing to me , they believed in the potential of my book and took it to great limits. I have been told my book is one of three that have ever done this. JK Rowlings being one , when she was self-published , a cookbook and Fifty Shades of Grey. I feel honored. I know that Fifty Shades released her e-book when she self published, therefore her sales are tenfold. I would like to leave my e book to be released with whomever I sign with traditionally.
Well your book would make a greater stocking stuffer.
Thank-You Tom Jones , its people who believed in me that allowed me to reach the limits my book has gone.
I noticed in that article you stated that you’re not here to tell Hells Angels secrets. So you have no intention of talking about club business. You’re just talking about your life, how you were drawn into and overcame an abusive relationship with someone who happened to be a member of the Hells Angels and you want to help others leave that life as well. Is that right?
I am going to leave that off the table , it has been answered so many times. People want to know Life as a Wife , well here's my story , read my book and be the judge.
Well I certainly think that is a cause well worth supporting and you certainly appear to be a very competent and capable young woman. So you have two children and you’re doing all this work while you take care of your own children at home. I don’t want to pry but does your ex pay any child support?
No he didn't pay for a whole year and then finally I received a very and I mean very small amount six months ago. I sent an e-mail asking for some support, in a very nice way. He asked me to speak in a certain way when I addressed him. It was almost degrading except, wait I am not his victim anymore!
I guess I just have a hard time seeing all these guys parade around at a public toy run when they don’t even pay child support for their own kids. It seems so hypocritical to me. Like it’s just one big show perpetuating that one big lie.
There’s no question going through a divorce affects kids. There’s no question kids also suffer when there is no child support. That sure isn’t in their best interest. I guess when a man says he loves his kids then doesn’t pay child support when he has the money to do so, that makes it rather hard to believe he really cares about the kids. How can a man let his kids go hungry? It’s so sad to see kids suffer. Especially at Christmas.
Not all are like that. A lot of fathers are though...... I don't know why any father or parent would allow their child to suffer in anyway. I remember when I first left my ex, I had nothing so I started selling things in my house to pay for my children. He never paid me for over a year and when he did ......ohhh that's my 2nd book....
Anyhow , I wrote my first book Kerri On with such a open heart and a purity to help others who have been hurt in the same way I have. I received my divorce money , took my beautiful sons on a trip and then wrote this book for people. I thought perhaps a few people would read it , the ones who needed to . I never believed in my wildest dreams it would reach the heights it has. I gave back to the community that saved me and my sons the only way I knew how , by sharing my true story to help others.
Lets face it , take a troubled teenager to a counselor they will hear them BUT take them to a Hells Angels Ex-Wife and they will listen. Its using that power for the good. Yes I have a story and it has resonated with people. because I wrote for people , not for other authors or to be famous, I wrote for people.
I certainly admire your tenacity and your perpetual positive attitude. You certainly have an indomitable spirit. I saw a printed copy of your e-book that you co authored with Kathleen Patel. I thought it was very well done. It’s very positive and inspiring.
That’s one thing I noticed. I’ve done a lot of writing and a lot of speaking in my day and I like to quote a lot of sayings, movies, songs. Martin Luther King of course is my personal favorite. Yet I noticed each chapter in your book has a wise quote to start it off. The book you co authored with Kathleen Patel is full of them. Only you’re not quoting someone else, you are quoting yourself. Where do all these quotes come from?
That’s the reoccurring theme in your story that I find so baffling. You’ve been bombarded with all this abandonment and negative yet you are so competent and positive. All these quotes just seem to come from deep down within you. Right from the heart.
You just radiate positive competence. It’s wonderful to see. Good luck on your journey. I’m sure you will help and inspire many wherever you go. I’m sure we’ll be hearing more from you in the future. Kerri On. Kerri Krysko's 's book Kerri On is available at any Chapters outlet or online at Amazon. There's a new book trailer uploaded to youtube as well.
We’re going to do a follow interview with Kerri Krysko in a virtual talk show format. So if you have any respectful questions for Kerri e-mail them to me and we’ll put them to her and get her response in the next interview.

The Ottawa Sun is reporting that Police seized drugs, cash, weapons, 10 cars and have 20 people in custody after dismantling a drug ring linked to the Hells Angels. The haul included: more than four kilograms of cocaine; steroids; more than $100, 000 in cash; several firearms, including a machine gun and two M8-calibre handguns; a Taser; nearly 1,000 methamphetamine pills and 10 vehicles, including a luxury Lexus whose serial number had been tampered with. Implying of course that is was stolen.
The majority of the searches took place in Gatineau however police throughout the Outaouais, and in Ottawa, simultaneously raided 16 homes - 3 in Ottawa - beginning at 2 a.m. Thursday. Another case for criminal organization status of the Hells Angels drug trafficking network. Gatineau is in Quebec and is near Ottawa. No word yet if this ties in to Rob Ford’s dealer in Toronto but Mommy dearest says thanks for your business.

Hoop there it is. The publication ban must be lifted because Kim Bolan is confirming earlier reports that Michael Le from the Surrey Six has pleaded guilty to conspiracy to murder Corey Lal only. First degree murder charges have been dropped. Another deal with the devil. Kim Bolan is reporting that Prosecutor Mark Levitz said in his opening that Le and Bacon ordered the murder of Lal because he had refused to pay a $100,000 tax to the Red Scorpions. Which was obviously for the Hells Angels not the Red Scorpion but we won’t get into that. Much.
All we know is that James Riach from the Independent Soldiers, a Hells Angels puppet club, met the Bacon brothers at Castle fun Park December 2006 before the Surrey Six which was on Oct. 19, 2007. We know that Larry Amero was partying with the Bacon brothers all along not just when he was shot with Jonathon in Kelowna. That’s what we do know. Looks like Jamie Bacon is going down for the Surrey Six. Let’s hope Larry Amero and Spike goes with him.

Two different people told me about this at work and I’m wondering why it’s not more prevalent in the news given it’s global significance. Apparently, the Fukushima nuclear reactor is still leaking radioactive water and it’s coming our way. Radioactive water leaks continue to contaminate the Pacific Ocean’s ecosystem, and thus, the entire world’s food supply.
All we heard was something about Japan donating money to help Canada clean up Tsunami debris off it’s coast. I thought that was rather bizarre at the time. Japan gets hit with a Tsunami and they send us money. That’s kind of backwards. Yet this global eco crisis with radioactive water killing the world’s food supply is much more pressing.
300 tons of radioactive groundwater is leaking every day into the plant's harbor and on into the Pacific Ocean. That’s over two and a half years after the March 2011 reactor accident. That is a huge amount of radioactive water contaminating the ocean.

On the front page of today’s Surrey Leader is the headline that reads: “Review on tolls promised.” What a con that is. “Transportation Minister Todd Stone is pledging to review B.C.’s provincial tolling policy that currently blocks tolls on existing roads and bridges, adding he’s concerned about the unfair proliferation of tolled crossings of the Fraser River in Metro Vancouver.”
Why that’s the same scam Dianne Watts tried to pull for the BC Liberals. Finding other regions to pay for her spending. One would think they have the same campaign contributors. The headline and article is a complete scam in itself. It’s trying to come across as though a politician is trying to do something fair for the people. Gag.
In reality he’s talking about committing a criminal act. Right now the law bans them from tolling existing roads and bridges that are already paid for. That’s the way it should be. He wants to change that in another obsessive tax grab. Gee I thought they said the NDP were the only ones that would tax and spend. Evidently not. Isn't the freedom to move in the Charter of Rights?
The Lions Gate bridge was tolled when it was first built. After it was paid for they removed the toll. That is fare. Putting a toll back on the Lions Gate bridge would be a criminal act. The same with the Coquihalla. It’s paid for and the toll has been removed. Putting a toll back on it is simply a tax grab. Godzilla and her Campbelism need to be stopped.
