Justin Primmer was reported to be a trusted associate of the London, Ontario Hells Angels. “Primmer was pictured at the London Hells Angels’ clubhouse, often wearing Hells Angels support shirts. With him were high-ranking members of the biker hierarchy, including president Rob Barletta and the sergeant-at-arms Dave (The Hammer) MacDonald.”
Yet Justin Primmer was a f*ck up. In addition to enforcing for the club, he also had a history of violence towards women. Primmer was convicted of manslaughter from the brutal assault that left 22-year-old Desiree Gallagher of Brantford wheelchair-bound.
Desiree was badly beaten and thrown off a seventh-floor balcony. She survived the fall but incurred numerous back and brain injuries. She ended up succumbing to those injuries two years later. Police found photographs of Gallagher’s badly beaten face on Primmer’s phone taken at his apartment. Primmer was given a six-month sentence but with credit for time served, he was released after three months. That was insane.
The Iron Sirens, a woman’s motorcycle group, hold an annual run for Desiree in her memory.
In 2020, Rob Barletta, the founder of the London, Ontario Hells Angels was shot at 20 times and miraculously survived.
In 2016, three years after Desiree’s brutal assault, David Macdonald helped bring the Hells Angels back to Nova Scotia. He helped members of the Gatekeepers move a key step closer to becoming full patch Hells Angels by awarding them hang-around status.
