Georgia Outlaws Case Continues

September 2, 2014

All Posts, News

Three men named Larry McDaniel, Howard Brown and Sean King are scheduled to begin a North Korean style show trial in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Georgia on September 22.

McDaniel is a former Regional President of the American Outlaws Association in Georgia and Alabama; Brown is a former Georgia President of the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club and King is an Outlaws patch holder. The men are accused of conspiring to avoid being entrapped. The case has been crawling along since August 15, 2012.

The case, like many racketeering cases, demonstrates a kind of absurd circular logic which begins and ends with a naked accusation. It epitomizes the sort of federal police bullying that contemns what Louis Brandeis called “the most comprehensive of rights, and the right most valued by civilized men…. The right to be let alone.” The case invites a national debate and demands scrutiny by national media. Don’t hold your breath.

The case has evolved as Sally Quillian Yates, the United States Attorney for Northern Georgia, has sought ever more creative accusations that might be used to punish these men for their Constitutionally protected right to belong to a motorcycle club. In April 2013 Yates had the men indicted for the federal crime of “impeding a federal proceeding” which throughout the entire preceding 225 years of the history of our republic has always referred to proceedings like court sessions and Congressional hearings but now refers to a proceeding called domestic spying.

The men are specifically accused as follows.

The Indictment

Beginning in or about June 2012, and continuing until on or about August 16, 2012, in the Northern District of Georgia, the defendants, Larry McDaniel, a/k/a “Larry Mack,” Howard Brown, and Sean King, did knowingly and intentionally combine, conspire, confederate, agree, and have a tacit understanding with each other, to commit offenses against the United States, that is, (1) to violate Title l8, United states Code, Section 1512(c)(2), in that the defendants would corruptedly obstruct, influence, and impede an official proceeding, to wit: an investigation being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) in which
D.B.S. was acting as an undercover informant for the FBI and Michael Griffin, a/k/a “Griff” a law enforcement officer was acting in an undercover capacity, and (2) to violate Title 18, United States Code, Section 1512(c) (2), in that the defendants would corruptedly obstruct, influence, and impede an official proceeding, to wit: a federal grand jury investigation into criminal offenses investigated by the FBI, said FBI investigation involving D.B.S. acting as an undercover informant and Michael Griffin, a/k/a “Griff,” a law enforcement officer, acting in an undercover capacity.

“In furtherance of the conspiracy and to effect the objects and purposes there of, one or more of the following overt acts were committed:

“In about June 2012, an unknown co-conspirator advised defendant Larry McDaniel that D.B.S., a member of the Cleveland Georgia Chapter of the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club was a “fed” or federal agent.

“On or about July 19, 2012, defendant McDaniel directed defendants Brown and King, and others not named as defendants herein, to travel to the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club clubhouse in Cleveland, Georgia.

“On or about July 19, 2012, defendant McDaniel directed defendants Brown and King, and others not named as defendants herein, to “shutdown” the clubhouse and collect all Black Pistons and Outlaw Motorcycle Club vests, known as “cuts,” patches, belts, rings, t-shirts, and other paraphernalia identified with the Black Pistons and outlaw Motorcycle Clubs from those present at the clubhouse.

“On or about July 19, 2012, defendants Brown and King, and others not named as defendants traveled to the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club clubhouse in Cleveland, Georgia.

“On or about July 19, 2012, defendants Brown and King, and others not named as defendants herein, closed the Black Pistons clubhouse and collected all Black Pistons and Outlaw Motorcycle Club vests, known as “cuts,” patches, belts, rings, t-shirts, and other paraphernalia identified with the Black Pistons and Outlaw Motorcycle Clubs. All in violation of Title 18, United States Code Section 371.”

Wait There’s More

The mastermind behind this case is an FBI Special Agent named David Brown.  Brown will now testify as an “expert witness” and will try to convince jurors to misinterpret what actually happened. Brown has spent his entire career gathering intelligence about and trying to entrap Outlaws. There are police who do that because there are now so many police that it is increasingly hard to find real police work – like bullying harried mommies who make rolling stops – for all of them to do. Agent Brown, according to prosecutors for example, “is considered the OMC subject matter expert in Florida.”

But what is disturbingly North Korean about the guy is the sort of activities he will portray to jurors as sinister or borderline criminal. Like, for example, reading this page.

“Agent Brown will testify that the Outlaws Motorcycle Club routinely monitors court cases in which its members are charged with crimes,” an official document explains. “Associates of members attend trials and report to the OMC about who has testified and who is cooperating with law enforcement. Witnesses are debriefed by OMC members about their testimony. Jailed OMC members routinely make Freedom of Information Act requests as a means to gather information about law enforcement investigations and techniques, so that they can share that information with their brothers in the club.”

Someone should tell U.S. Attorney Yates and Special Agent Brown that Americans not only have a right to be let alone but they also have the basic right to know what their government is doing.

    @panamaa – The only chains that bind tyrants are those of well-tread and pissed-on dirt over rotting bones.

    The Constitution is now a piece of worthless paper and if anyone thinks that those in power have respect for it, they’ve got another think coming right alongside the gunshot behind the ear waiting for them.

    Those in power mean to remain there and the cost of such preservation is irrelevant to them.

    Dig a trench grave? “How long, Sire?” is the response of the chattering classes. Don’t think we’re not headed for it.

    I always thought counting or numbering elements was done to avoid visiting the same element more than once. Identifying the elements by assigning a number to each element.

    I notice in rootytoo’s world there are two #5’s.

    And then there is the name dropping thing.

    Hey man did I hit a hot button? Lol I’m really sorry about that and I fully understand been there a couple times. I don’t want to jack this thread it’s too important to not talk about. I do share your frustration this whole story of the feds charging the Club membership for managing their house and keeping it clean and also implying that recovering Club property is somehow a crime is bullshit and it makes my blood boil.

    The feds have tried for the last two decades to make this shit stick against several Clubs and specifically against the Green Nation as recent as the pure luck case. Again, it is Club property it must be returned when requested all understand that some are not deserving of being a Brother or buried as one.

    Well shit fire and fuck me runnin’ you got me revved up Brother. “What part of Club property do the fuck tard out-bads not get?” I’ll tell ya! These stinking cunts that hide their shit instead of turning it in and slither around looking for sympathy make me want to puke. Daddy said no, I’m out. I’ll go to Mommy next and ask her. Oh, that didn’t work so I’ll go to Auntie and then Uncle then Cuz’ till I find some fucking sorry for me sap who hasn’t heard what a sociopath, manipulating, opportunistic piece shit I am. He doesn’t do his research and get the facts because he’s a lazy fuck or just feels sorry for poor pitiful picked on me and BIIIINGO! I’m back to fuck it up again and take someone else down.

    BEWARE PEOPLE. THESE TYPES DON’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT YOU! IF YOU BUY INTO THEIR GAME YOU ARE DOOMED.

  16. Rootytoo Says:

    I will agree that this is a farce.but first a few points. 1. the AOA refused to pay for lawyers for the said defendants [ that’s shitty and against the code they vowed to uphold as a member of the AOA and sister clubs]. 2. most of the ppl indited are either kicked out [ disgraced]members or have no affiliation with the AOA, that opens the door for rats 3. Mac and Brown are actually on video and audio telling other club members in church that they had a fed in the Cleveland BP and it took a dirty cop to inform them of that. [if that constitutes conspiracy] 4. Mac made the decision to let any tom dick and harry into the BP so he could backup against the threat of 81 coming into GA, bad decision because in doing so he let a fed and a rat into the upper ranks and that bullshit threat has been going on for 20 years..5. as a result of this the AOA has lost a shitload of credibility with the other clubs in FOG to the point where some have even stripped off there affiliate patches and burned them, and several AOA members have got the shit kicked out of them by no other than affiliate club members for asking about it. this opens the door for even more turmoil and disorganization.. this brings me to point number 5. the AOA need to get there shit together and start checking there club members a little better before they actually do allow some other big 4 club to come in and take over, and then GA will look like fucking Florida 250 clubs full of scrubs running around acting tough……If you dont like what i said thats tough shit, but it is the truth…..ride safe

    hey crystal kalna, I bet you never had any breakin in your house,car,thay wouldn’t put up with any crime around their club house.you probably have the safest house in the county,cause of them,you should thank them.

    Dave said it first….One step away from being charged with attempting to not break the law……damn….2 here is this country going?

    It doesn’t even sound like using a radar detector. It sounds more like going the speed limit, and then slowing down right before you get to where the speed trap happens to be, and suggesting that your friends do the same.

  20. Kraut Says:

    This crap can’t stick. What a waste of taxpayer dollars. What can possibly be illegal about avoiding being entrapped? Is that like using a radar detector?

  21. ynot Says:

    so, if im reading this right the feds should be charged with the impeding charge because “they” fucked up their case by taking it to the grand jury,…. right? so when is the georgia state atty general going to charge the feds with “their crime” WE DEMAND THE ATTY GENERAL CHARGE THE FEDS WITH THEIR CRIMES NOW !!!!!!!!!!!!

  22. Tomo Says:

    “Law abiding American citizens are being prosecuted by the American government for stopping the American government from using American government employees and (presumably) convicted criminals to instigate and perpetuate criminal activities…”

    At some time in the past, people would call you a conspiracy theorist nut for starting off a conversation with that line.

    I hope the defendants get decent lawyers, I really do.

    Nefarious, sneaky, underhanded, and a wildcat approach in a vain attempt to construct a charge using Houdini magic with a fascist mentality. I if I understand it correctly.

    slimy coppers…

    Reb, Thanks and good work…

  25. Glenn S. Says:

    Hope they have good lawyers who won’t be afraid to present examples of the entrapment tactics typically used by federal agencies, and then ask the jury to put itself in the defendants’ shoes in that if they, the jurors, became aware that an entrapment specialist and his tame rat were associating with their own friends and family, wouldn’t they, the jurors, feel morally compelled to warn the potential victims, lest the potential might accidentally and unknowingly break some petty law with over-the-top consequences? Wouldn’t the juror agree that the legal steps taken to avert catastrophe (and, incidentally, prevent crime from actually happening) were not made illegal simply because it prevented cops from leading a conspiracy to commit crimes?

    The entire practice of enticing criminal acts could be put on trial, which would give the US Attorney motivation to move for dismissal.

    It is a leap of logic to suggest, as the government has successfully argued, that entrapment is not entrapment if it merely presents opportunities for others to break the law. It is probably, I hope, a bridge too far for the government to suggest that an American has a legal duty to stay out of the legalized criminals’ way.

    This sounds like a winnable case, if the defendants’ lawyers really want to win. Winning this case will really pis the feds off and we all know that the faux-adversarial trial process is more about relationships and careers than justice.

    I hope that isn’t a literal example.

    Prosecuting people for avoiding entrapment is pretty low. I suppose prosecuting people who are willing to read about it and make comments isn’t much lower.

    They might surprise me yet again.

  27. StrategyIsZen Says:

    @th

    I would have to dig back into my law books, but I seem to recall that the First Amendment also covers what we read, and not just what we say.

    Interesting that our own government, would now attempt to punish people simply for wanting to know what our own government is up to. Seems like a pattern to me.

    Some interesting software I found is called Maltego. It can be used to dig deep into open source data about any person, email address, phrase, phone number, etc. . .

    And therefore it naturally follows in the mind of the FEDs that anyone reading rebels stories on this and other similar topics could also be guilty of the same said act……right?….

  29. rollinnorth Says:

    What a mess of a “case” and a waste of taxpayer dollars. Tune in, folks, to see how low can your government go?
    Perhaps Agent Brown, who “is considered the OMC subject matter expert in Florida”, knows who murdered Zach Tipton?!

    Stay on ’em, Rebel. Thanks.

    No truer words have ever been spoken. From day one my response to this case has been “what in the fuck”
    Tried in fed court for not letting the fbi entrap/investigate you. Shake my muthafuckin head. The outcome of this case will have a very broad and vast range all across the board…..the whole using the freedom of information act request as evidence has to be the lowest the govt/fbi has gone publicly in “official” court proceedings. What next are they going to be charged with obstruction of an official witch hunt for trying to retain an attorney?

    Below is the chronology of events, as stated in Rebel’s “Zombie Jury Outlaws Case Still On” story.

    July 16, 2012: The Black Pistons club house is shut down.

    August 16,2012: The feds. arrest twenty-three individuals for various alleged crimes.

    September 4, 2012: The Feds. convince the Grand jury to vote out an indictment against McDaniel, King, and Brown for obstruction.

    “Fuller ruled that the men could not be charged with impeding the investigation and dropped one of the three counts. But using logic reminiscent of medieval metaphysicians, Fuller ruled that the attempted undercover entrapment was part of a grand jury investigation, that impeding the undercover shenanigans was tantamount to impeding the business of a grand jury, and so the men will have to endure the financial ordeal known as a jury trial.”

    Unless I’m missing something, the Grand Jury only became aware of this “blown” UC entrapment case after the fact, and only after the Feds. brought it to the Grand Jury’s attention. So, it begs the question: How can the alleged impeding of undercover shenanigans be part of a Grand Jury investigation, when the Grand Jury wasn’t conducting an “impeding of undercover shenanigans” investigation?

    Carry on AOA… Fuck you Feds…

  40. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Well isn’t this shit creative! Fucking fed turds all think alike. This is another example of the violation of ones right to freely associate, organize and have membership rules or policy.

    And**** I don’t usually comment on this subject due to it being a emotionally charged topic from all points of view including the shitbag feds that love to prosecute for it.

    What part of Club property do the fuck tard feds and out bads not get? Now I maybe off the charts here but my limited experience on the subject is that as a Club member or officer you don’t own shit. Your patch, soft patches, rings, buckles and everything else that identifies your membership including but not limited to tattoos and in some cases your motorcycle and also clubhouses are property of a Club and must be forfeited when requested.This is not a secret the hang-arounds know this as do prospects from day one and its in the rookie sponsor handbook under “you fucked up bad & and your out” and what you worked for is returned, period.

    I’m so tired off these asshole feds levying these types of fictitious crimes to win the hearts and commitment of grand jury indictment(s) though out the country.

    Ok, my rant is complete.

    My best to the AOA on the success of their fight to run their camp their way without federal interference.
