Bad Blood: A brother offended

OK while I try and figure out the motive behind the trailer trash stunt, I want to reexamine some past history so we can see the pattern of betrayal in the ongoing Vancouver gang wars and discuss the motive behind it. As we all know the most recent betrayal is of BIBO by BIBO.

I personally find it so bizarre because of the extreme nature of the initial name and pledge. BIBO means blood in, blood out. They claim you have to kill to get in and be killed to get out. It's supposed to be a life long commitment. It's a blood oath. So how can those guys so quickly betray that oath and start setting up and killing their own brothers? It doesn't make sense to me.

It's like the saying AFFA. Angels Forever, Forever Angels. Angels Forever until you get kicked out in bad and no one is allowed to talk to you any more. That's not that common within the HAs. Not like it is with all the other puppet clubs. They all copy that same saying. Rebels Forever, Forever rebels or whatever the name of the puppet club of the day is. Only those guys don't mean forever. They mean until they change their patch and burn their old patch. Forever in their minds doesn't usually last very long. Solomon said it is easier to take a city than a brother offended.

As we recall, BIBO originally broke off of the Brother's Keepers and have been beefing with them ever since. So again, one minute they're brothers, the next minute they're enemies shooting each other and the bad blood between them is extreme. It's like when Jamie Bacon and his brothers betrayed the UN. The subsequent war was violent. In each case, a group of guys sold out their brothers for the almighty dollar and went to war against them instead of with them. Not to hate, but the HAs have been behind each betrayal. Let's start with the Surrey Six.

Before the Surrey Six, the Red Scorpions worked for the UN. After the Surrey Six the Red Scorpions worked for the Hells Angels. When the Brother's Keepers started there was a lot of internal strife where founding leaders were shot dead. After all the killing ended, the Brothers Keepers ended up working for the Hells Angels. Even after the club killed Ali.

Anyone who objects working for the HAs gets capped. The current split within Redd Alert - who's behind it? The Hells Angels through the Wolf Pack. The current split between RS and BIBO - who's behind it? The Hells Angels through the Wolf Pack. All these murders have a common denominator. Betrayal based on greed fueled by the Hells Angels. Just sayn.

OK so let's review an early Canadian model of betrayal that seems to represent a familiar pattern that keeps repeating itself in greed's obsessive quest for money and power.

The Hells Angels wanted to take over the Death Riders. The take over became absolute on May 4, 1987 when the President of the Death Riders, Martin Huneault, was shot to death in a Laval bar. No one was ever arrested for the murder, but just hours after Huneault's funeral, Death Riders Mario Martin and André Richard were seen meeting with Hells Angels Maurice "Mom" Boucher and Normand "Biff" Hamel. Boucher and Hamel received their colours after the incident and Huneault's murder allowed the Hells Angels to completely take over drug trafficking in Laval.

So how did they do it? They found someone in the club that wanted power. Like Xerxes in the movie 300, they promised the traitor power if the traitor was willing to serve them. Then they killed the existing leadership and anyone who opposed the take over. They cut a deal with traitors willing to betray their own brothers for money and power. That has a bad prognosis.

This pattern keeps repeating itself over and over again. That's what all these gang wars are about. Bad blood created by betrayal and greed. I can understand someone joining a club with known rivals and protecting their brothers against those rivals but I cannot understand swearing an oath to a group of brothers then betraying them for the almighty dollar. That's what rats do who cooperate with the police. They rat someone out so they don't have to go to jail themselves and get paid a commission. In this case they betray their brothers so they can have their position and make more money. That is not admirable. It's time to walk away from the greed and drama.
