Kingsmen Arrest

All Posts, News

There has been an arrest in the murders of Kingsmen Motorcycle Club members Paul Maue and Daniel “DJ” Szymanski in the early morning hours of September 6 outside the Kingsmen’s North Tonawanda chapter clubhouse.

Lou Michel of the Buffalo News is reporting that the suspect is a “Kingsmen Motorcycle Club member from Florida.” Citing police sources, Michel said “The motive for the shooting might be as simple as local Kingsmen refusing to let him enter their Oliver Street clubhouse in North Tonawanda.” The police broke the case with the help of an informant.

The unnamed suspect was arrested in Georgia on an unrelated charge and will be extradited to New York to be arraigned.  The police sources told Michel “the killer fled with another Kingsman who is believed to be a New York state resident.”

Hi Steve

Steve Cook, a Kansas policeman who describes himself as “the foremost authority on Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs,” has speculated that the murders of Maue and Szymanski were related to an internal dispute within the Kingsmen and that dispute is related to a patch over to another motorcycle club.

Last month the News reported that unnamed sources, “believe the murders may be linked to ongoing disputes within the biker community. Those disputes include efforts by other biker clubs to recruit members to leave the Kingsmen and join other biker clubs.”

The September murders culminated a series of violent events that suggest a power struggle within the club. On August 31, 2013 the Kingsmen’s Lockport clubhouse was damaged, a man sleeping inside was beaten with baseball bats and a motorcycle, several firearms, ammunition, beer, liquor and a cell phone were stolen. In early August, Szymanski told a friend, “We had some problems down in Jamestown. Another club was trying to take over our Jamestown clubhouse.” And, on August 24, an unnamed Kingsmen was attacked near the Niagara Falls Clubhouse and stripped of his colors. The man also reported that five rifles, a shotgun and two black powder rifles had been stolen from the clubhouse.

Somebody Talked

Szymanski and Maue were shot in the back of the head after attending a party at the clubhouse. A witness said the shooting was preceded by “extremely loud arguing.” The same witness reported seeing “a bunch of people” running from the scene. Maue was a former president of the Buffalo chapter of the Kingsmen. Police have openly complained that nobody at the party that night knew anything.

After the murders, North Tonawanda Police Chief William R. Hall said, “There was a group of people there that night. It happened right outside their clubhouse. Obviously, someone saw what happened, but people are telling us they didn’t see a thing.”

Two weeks after the shooting, with the aid of an informant, a multi agency task force that included members of the Erie County Sheriff’s Office, New York State Police, Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, found the semiautomatic pistol used in the murders in a remote location near Route 219 south of Buffalo.

    The cell system is an old, effective way to limit awareness of any operational details to give the apprehended little to confess and few to blame.

    If knowledge is spread throughout a group it makes the group like a balloon, easily deflated by a single puncture. The cell system logically assumes everyone has a breaking point and that some will indeed break.

    ” Dead Bikers are the last thing anybody wants to see” excepting the government and whoever lit them up, be they in or out of government.

    Not everything in the world is necessarily attributable to gummint conspiracy, though I certainly encourage skeptical inquiry.

    When non-government humans plink each other and make extraordinary efforts to expand into countries which do not belong to them it’s kinda hard to argue they are just a friendly riding fraternity.

    It would be for the good of nearly all (government excepted) concerned directly or indirectly if outsider political liquidation were done discreetly. No one not directly involved really cares what happens between consenting adults if it is kept invisible.

    Open plinking of opponents is a huge gift to the police state who use the actions of a few as an excuse to fuck the few and the many.

    The public fear what is public and not what is private if they aren’t involved. LEO careers are built on publicity and trophy hunting. No perceived trophy? No hunt.

    Steve Cook aside, the situation in Upstate Western New York is heating up at the same time that most of the Bikers who live up there are draining their gas tanks and putting the trickle chargers on for a while. And, the real story involves an MC from far away trying to establish itself in the good old USA, (Canada if possible). Things like this don’t usually end well in a place where men endure brutal winters and take themselves and their Clubs very seriously. Dead Bikers are the last thing anybody wants to see except of course the Governments who seek to stir the pot and conquer from within. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.

    Oh yes; another stellar fail in a long list of fails, where once again the Chicken Little of all things Biker attempts to rise to the credibility of True Detective.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),
