Gordon Kendall and Jeffry Ivans, two B.C. kids involved in the drug trade got shot up in Mexico. I'm not going to mock their death. On the contrary, I want you to take a look at these two kids. They don't look like gangsters. They look like Bob and Doug McKenzie. Two fun loving Canadians from the Okanagan who like to party. http://www.canada.com/news/killed+Mexico+were+involved+drug+trade+police+confirm/2041210/story.html
They could be your kids. They could be your friends. They are a reminder of the dangers of gangs and the drug trade. Can't you just see these two with a beer in their hand saying "Party up dude." Living it up in Puerto Viarta. "Dude if they could see us now." Well we did and it made our hearts shrink.
A newspaper from Mexico posted some very disturbing pictures of the dead bodies after they were shot up. The first thought that came to mind was that it was tasteless to do so. Yet there's something about watching a death on TV or reading about it in the paper that distances us and disassociates us from the event. Seeing the photos brings it up close and personal.
I was surprised how much blood there was. I thought they were shot not cut up. Yet when people get shot they bleed. Something we only see glimpses of in the movies. Then seeing Gord lying there shot up covered in blood with his eyes open brought it home and made me feel to close his eyes and cover the body with a white sheet. It made me think of the movie Shake Hands with the Devil where the Peacekeeper struggling to protect innocent lives amid a senseless genocide is overcome when the road is covered with dead bodies - men women and children, slaughtered.
Instead of driving over the dead bodies he gets out of his vehicle and starts pulling them off the road and lining the bodies side by side in grave positions. It was a small act of dignity in a senseless sea of violence.
Now if this was Jarrod or Jonathan Bacon or one of the Hells Angels profiting from this drug war, then I would be much less compassionate. It's just seeing their picture drove home to me the fact that this could be our kids, our friends, this could be us. The temptation the money the drug trade brings is real. For me driving around in a Hummer or an Escalade isn't a temptation. I hate those cars. Yet when we see the price of land and the limited wages honest work brings one can see how real the temptation is.
It reminds me of the crack epidemic that swept New York and LA in the /80's. The Crips and the Bloods were networking up the coast all the way to Seattle. A 12 year old kid could go to school and face a life time of working for minimum wage or he could sell crack, wear gold chains and drive around in limo's. The temptation was real but likewise the consequences were often fatal.
Some argue that increasing jail terms will not solve the problem because if these guy's aren't deterred by death, they won't be deterred by jail time. Although there is some merit to that argument we still need to reform our judicial system. House arrest for trafficking cocaine for the Hells Angels is wrong. We are enablers and have thereby become accomplices to these murders.
Let's remember the horrific reality of their death and let us remember that the puppet master is still exploiting these kids and getting off scott free. We need to reform the judicial system and we need to rat out the real rats who profit from this kind of exploitation. Report Hells Angels to Crime Stoppers: 1 800 222 - 8477 (TIPS)

Getting a gang tattoo is about as smart as getting your girlfriend's name tattooed on your arm. Like you're never going to break up. Only your new girlfriend won't shoot your over your old tattoo and you ex won't make you burn your old tattoo off with a blow torch
Another thing to consider is what you want to take pride in representing. Is selling crack or date rape drug really something to brag about? What about Otis Garret and Dave Picton? The Hells Angels deny everything and keep secrets from their own members. They only reveal things on a need to know basis.
Otis Garret was incarcerated for running a Hells Angels prostitution ring in San Fransisco. The woman who testified against him was murdered along with her twin seven year old daughters. There is nothing there to be proud of.
I know a guy who wears Big Red Machine support gear. I asked about them selling crack and he just said he didn't ask about that part of the business. That is bullshit. If you wear support gear you are telling the world that you support selling crack and date rape drug and you support what Otis Garret did because they own a brothel in Amsterdam and Otis is still honoured on Sonny Barger's web site.
To me wearing support gear is like wearing a T-shirt that says I support Clifford Olsen and getting a Hells Angels tattoo is like saying I support Dave Picton. Something they did but deny. Remember Piggy Palace.
Speaking of the Independent Soldiers, let's take another look at that famous photo of Larry Amero and Randy Naicker that made the front page of the Vancouver Sun. Take at look at the expression on Randy's face. He looks like a kid getting his photo with his favorite hockey player while he wears the teams jersey.
Look at his tattoo. He claims it isn't a gang tattoo, it's just a patented logo for a clothing line. But doesn't that logo look like another famous logo? It's a skull similar to the Hells Angels dead head with the words Independent Soldiers. It looks just like Larry's tattoo. Don't you hate it when a guy copies another guy's tattoo?
There were several comments about the photo. Like "Find a room", "They should be kissing" and "They look like they should be on the cover of the Georgia Straight for a gay add." Look at Randy's hand. He sure looks like he's grabbing a feel of Larry's Delts and upper Pecs and it sure does look like he's getting aroused. Maybe they just put some GHB in his drink to help with the brainwashing.
With all this talk about puppets and puppet clubs, it clearly seems to be what the Hells Angels look for. Clearly the new Independent Soldiers are not independent. Even the police claim they are a puppet group for the Hells Angels.
Larry's kind of young. Not a teenager but younger than I had imagined. I wonder if he's a patch over. He's well built but it's doubtful he hasn't done roids. The East Van Hells Angels were caught with roids. Larry seems almost like a nice guy but I wonder if he pays child support on his under the table income or just his taxable income and I'm very concerned with his bacon connections. That just smells bad.
Now let's compare idealistic Randy with Mike the hammer Hamersley. His tattoo is nice. It's tasteful, looks good and caries with it a certain amount of originality. Now don't go and get a tattoo just like his. You'd be biting his shit and nobody likes a copycat. Mike seems different. He seems self confident. Smaller guys like Napoleon Dynamite gravitate to him for protection.

Hey now, you're a rock star. This guy's gang sign is a finger and a thumb on his forehead: www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ebuxyxptAo Here's Don McWhirter aka Blaze from Kelowna wearing an IS shirt.
Wait a minute. Take a look at the guy. He's got that really stupid bleached frohawk. That's not very gangster. But that's not all. See that stupid grin on his face? He's bragging about belonging to the Independent Soldiers and showing off his weight set in the background.
You have got to be kidding. If you're gonna show off your weights, put more than 50 pounds on the barbell. Come on. All the other IS guys are buff. That is really embarrassing. He certainly isn't the brawn of the group. Let's just say Don McWhirter is a person of interest.

Take a look at the three bacon brothers. One's a big awkward guy and the other two are small preps. Dennis Karbovanec plead guilty to participating in the Surrey six murder and implicated Jamie Bacon and others yet Jarrod and Jonathan walk away free, again. Jamie's the younger brother. Did the preps sell out their own brother?
Jared and Jonathan have a host of weapons charges against them and have been the targets of several gang shootings wearing body armour and beefing up their leased cars against gunfire. Hardly innocent responsible citizens.
It certainly would not be surprising to hear that a court convicts Jamie Bacon for being involved in the Surrey Six murders. What is surprising is the thought that Jamie was the mastermind and brothers Jonathon and Jarred were not involved in the planning of that murder. How can the brawn be the mastermind when the brains walk away free?
Then there's the conspiracy theory. Original IS members who were anti Hells Angels have been shot or died in car accidents and replaced with Hells Angel friendly puppets. Isn't that ironic?
The photo of Larry Amero and Randy Naicker on the front page of the Vancouver Sun shows an interesting connection. A Hells Angel with a Bacon Brother Associate. Other than the two innocent lives lost, all the targets in the Surrey Six murder were Red Scorpions. Were the bacon brothers, Dennis and Jamie at least, trying to take over the leadership of that group? The old Red Scorpion leadership, the ones who were shot were friends and associates of the UN. Maybe that's why the UN doesn't like the Bacon Brothers. Where's Larry in all this and Matt the Rat?
Were they trying to make the Red Scorpions Hells Angel friendly like the new IS? A plot to muscle the UN out of Surrey and replace them with a puppet club? There's something about puppets and puppet masters that just smells bad.

http://news.ca.msn.com/top-stories/cbc-article.aspx?cp-documentid=21692597 Sounds like sour grapes to me. Ignatiaeff is whining and name calling again. One minute he's complaining that Harper is inflexible unwilling to compromise and listen to any of the other parties in a minority government. Now he's complaining that Harper is listening to the other parties. He's just not listening to him.
Ignatieff had his chance. Dion was ready to lead the coalition. Ignatieff parades in and said no. He decided to form a coalition with Harper instead. Then he starts name calling and announces he's ready to call an election. But he also says he's not willing to form a coalition. How does that make him different from what he claims Harper is? http://ignatieff.me/
How can he form a minority government and not form a coalition? That's what you have to do in a minority government. Iggy's not going to get a majority government. Harper teaming up with the NDP may indeed seem like an unlikely match but there is common ground we can move on and get things done. Just set the extremes on both sides aside and build on common ground. Democracy, free speech and public safety.
I trust Justin Trudeau a lot more than I trust Ignatieff. Pierre Trudeau and Chretchien were nice guys but we need to remember that justice was eroded out of our judicial system from years of Liberal faint hope. Rehabilitation is a good thing but injustice is not. Five years for murder and house arrest for trafficking cocaine for the Hells Angels is offensive. We need to restore justice to the judicial system.
My concerns about the Harper government are counter balanced by the NDP. My concerns about the NDP are counter balanced by the Harper government. I think it's a match made in heaven and Iggy's crying because he's left out in the cold where he should be.
Here's a link from a blog reader. It's more attack adds on Iggy except it appears to be coming from the left. It appears our Igmhotep is being squeezed from both sides. I must admit his blind devotion to torture is somewhat of a real concern: www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uFbREDNfvE
Well, well, well... the Block joins the new coalition. Imagine that. Now Iggy's left in the cold. Now that's justice: http://news.ca.msn.com/top-stories/cbc-article.aspx?cp-documentid=21734289

This too is very old news but it establishes a pattern. Hunter S. Thompson was a reporter who spent time with the Hells Angels and wrote a book about them called: Hells Angels The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs. He too died of a suspicious suicide in 2005.
I find it interesting to note that the precursor to Hunter S. Thompson's book was a article he first published for the Nation called: The Motorcycle Gangs. Losers and Outsiders. www.thenation.com/doc/19650517/thompson
It appeared in the May 17 1965 edition of the Nation and was reposted on their web site on March 2 2005 less than two weeks after his suspicious suicide.
The article was an account of how two young girls aged 14 and 15 were kidnapped from their dates and were gang raped by a group of Hells Angels when 300 of them were in town for a gathering in Monterey, California.
I haven't read the book yet but I recently watched a Youtube video of an on camera interview of Hunter S. Thompson with a Hells Angel confronting him about his book, denying many things yet admitting many other things. www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFL_rOcmYFo
The treasurer of the Hells Angels said 60% of Hunter's book was cheap trash. He said if a Hells Angels is beating his wife and his dog bites him, that is between the three of them. Then he changes his story and says if he was beating his wife that bad someone would have stopped him.
Hunter then correctly points out that he just admitted the guy was beating his wife. Then the Treasurer states Hunter walked right up to the Hells Angel and said "Only a punk beats his wife and dog." The Hells Angels said Hunter said that. Then he sates the Hells Angel who was beating his wife said "Hunter, do you want some of this?" and Hunter said no. Makes sense to me.
Then the treasurer states Hunter got it anyways and when the Hells Angel who was beating his wife hit Hunter, several other Hells Angels hit him as well. Here we have a group of men watching a guy beat his wife and instead of doing anything to stop it, they gang up on the real man who confronts the abuse. That was cheap and that account is straight from the Hells Angels treasurer's mouth.
Then Sonny Barger admits "We let them beat him up for a bit and we told him to get out of here." Then Sonny Barger claims Hunter then went to the police and said they beat him up which was malarkey but he just admitted it was true.
Hunter was a young and zealous reporter. Did he exaggerate the beating? Perhaps but Sonny Barger admits he was beaten by several Hells Angels and he Hells Angles treasurer stated on camera the reason he was beaten. For confronting another Hells Angel who was beating his wife.
Interesting to note that feminist Susan Brownmiller criticized Hunters flippant treatment of gang rape which his book claims was a common occurrence with the Hells Angels in her book Against Our Will: Men, Women and Rape. (p 246-247)
Nevertheless Hunter's conclusion was: "The horror! The horror! ... Exterminate all the brutes."
I recently received a political flyer in the mail. This time from the Federal NDP. It once again claimed Stephen Harper was "wrong on crime" just like the Liberal flyer right before the last election was called early.
It said "Tough on Crime or Tough on Cops?" It lists three broken promises from the Harper government:
1) Claims Conservatives pledged more money for police but in reality fewer police are on the street.
2) Claims Harper promised a raise for police officers but scrapped the idea leaving families to cope with the recession with even less and
3) Claims an Ontario Supreme court ruled the RCMP be allowed to Unionize but Harper rejected that move and is appealing that decision.
These three "broken promises" are significant and deserve further comment.
1) More funding for more police. This is a good thing but is not the root of the problem. The root of the problem is the revolving door judicial system that sees prolific offenders do less time the more crimes they commit. Let us also remember that the NDP, Liberals and Bloc threatened to bring the Harper government down early after insisting more money be spent on stimulus. So in one breath they forced them to spend the money elsewhere and the next breath complained they ran out of money for police.
2) "Forcing families to cope with less during a recession." Give me a break. The people dealing with the recession are the people who have lost their jobs or have been cut back to part time hours. People who kept their job are facing the lowest inflation rates ever.
3) Unionizing the RCMP. Although that is interesting how will that really help the general public? Less public accountability? More wages for police and less funds available for more officers? Recently there was an episode of the TV series House. House complained in his typical sarcastic cutting wit that he didn't want to do a nurses job just because they cut back the number of nurses and laid many off. The response was he had to do the work because his huge wages were the reason they had to lay off so many nurses.
The bottom line is that I am very skeptical of all these used car salesmen in politics. The Liberals claimed Harper was wrong on crime yet walked out on the vote to fix our revolving door judicial system. Now the NDP is doing the same thing. Complaining about Harper's stance on crime and gangs but not supporting the legislation we need to fix the problem.
Don't get me wrong. I think Harper is just as bad. He knows how many people out there want to legalize or decriminalize pot. Yet he refuses to take an amendment to the motion and impose minimum sentences for violent crime and hard drugs like crack and crystal meth without imposing minimum sentences for possession of pot.
Harper is clearly in it for himself as well and has clearly dropped the ball: www.gangstersout.com/ball.htm
Unfortunately Ignatieff is worse and we are still left with a squabbling bunch of kids who are fighting over who gets to be Prime Minister as they refuse to do the job the people elected them to do: www.youtube.com/watch?v=iOAQkVvkj10
What was Haney Hells Angel Vincenzo James Sanssalone of Maple Ridge doing with 600 litres of GHB Date Rape Drug? www.canada.com/vancouversun/news/story.html?id=ac17f4b1-eb04-4795-a7d5-54a80771a26d&k=24002
Why was Toronto Hells Angel associate Mark Figueireo sentenced to six years in prison for being caught with 350 litres of date rape drug? The most ever seized in Canada until the Haney Hells Angel seizure.
The Toronto Star reported that Mark Figuereo had no previous criminal record but plead guilty to conspiring with six other men, five alleged to be Hells Angels, to traffic 600 litres of GHB worth $1.2 million. Police found 350 litres of the drug in his Toronto garage.
After the trial Mark Figuereo, 30, wept as he hugged his wife, sister and niece before he was lead away in handcuffs. This is another example of how the happily married family man was just a front. How would he have felt if someone used that drug to rape his wife, sister or niece? Can't you see the irony of living that lie? www.thestar.com/News/GTA/article/513725
Does this not reinforce the police's legal obligation to warn the public when the Hells Angels come to town with one of their special private parties? Let's not forget what happened to Cynthia Garcia after attending one of these Hells Angel private parties. She was stabbed 27 times and dumped in the Desert.
Paul Merle Eischeid who is a Hells Angels fugitive was quoted as saying about her, "She's Nobody. No one cares. No one probably reported her missing. They probably found her... probably (put a) fucking Jane Doe on her." She was a mother of six children. This is the Hells Angels legacy.
Don't the wives of the Hells Angels wonder what they do on their road trips to Amsterdam? "What happens on the road stays on the road." Are you telling me that none of those married men attend the brothel the Hells Angels own in Amsterdam? Isn't that wishful thinking?
