Pagans Bad Month Continues

November 19, 2014

All Posts, News

The headline starved Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives celebrated another, successful, undercover, buy bust operation this morning with the announcement that nine alleged members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club were arrested in Florida last month.

The Orlando Sentinel, citing a “a jointly released statement” issued by “officials,” reports the “joint operation” was five years long, involved the FBI, the ATF and six Florida law-enforcement agencies and was called Operation Road Rash.

According to the Sentinel, Operation Road Rash resulted in the seizure of 24 stolen firearms “as well as the purchase of narcotics.” According to the Sentinel this is a federal case. Neither the FBI, ATF, the United States Attorneys in any of the three Federal Judicial Districts in Florida nor any of the six, Florida police departments have issued a press release about the operation. None of the accused men named by the Sentinel appear in the Public Access to Court Electronic Records database.

This May Be True

The Florida paper says:

Richard Badali, 51, was arrested in Casselberry, Florida in October and charged selling a firearm to a felon.

William Tendrich, 39, an inmate convicted of assault, was charged with federal firearms violations at the St. Lucie County Jail on October 30.

Michael Carter, 61, was arrested in New Smyrna Beach on October 2 and charged with federal firearms violations.

Anthony Posadas, 65, was arrested in Fort Pierce on October 31 and charged with federal firearms violations.

Michael Clancy, 57, was arrested in Vero Beach on October 2 and charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

Thomas Laakmann, 59, was arrested in Orange City one October 2 and is charged with federal firearms violations.

Jorge Duquen, 52, was arrested in Miami in October and charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

Hector Garcia, 61, was arrested in Miami on October 2 and charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

Robert Klimkowski, 60, was arrested in Melbourne on October 2 and charged with distribution of a controlled substance.

    Personally I always have a good laugh when I hear that a club leader or chapter president was viciously beaten with a bat, ax handle, or unfinished piece of lumber.

    I hope The Pagans will always be around and best of luck to all members, especially those currently being harassed by the pigs.

    In time, I suppose we will learn how these men were set up. I have no doubt that they were set up because the number of people arrested makes it seem like the Pagans are a gun club rather than a motorcycle club. Were the arrested men “warned” of an upcoming assault like the Faux Warlocks in Seminole County a few years ago? Did “friendly law enforcement ” pass on a story that rivals planned a mass hit, as they did at Bear Chapin’s funeral a decade or two back? Sounds like a series of fabricated federal crimes to me…

    L, H&R TO ALL 1% RIDERS!!!

    Not so sure all these guys are Pagans. Micheal Carter is a black guy. I’ve never seen any black Pagans but there may be some. Correct me if I’m wrong. I have no affiliations with Pagans. Cops might just have lumped everyone together to make the evil horde look scarier.

    A single gun show will often have *dozens* of illegal firearm transactions in the parking lot alone. Arresting Joe Sixpack does not get headlines or promotions. Arresting “scary” bikers makes it seem like ATF is actually doing its job. “Seem” being the operative word. I heard something about ATF actually shipping AK’s down to Mexico or something.

    It doesnt matter who sells a gun, or a joint, of a frame, w/ no numbers or title,
    If they one or all are members of any motorcycle club, the feds, or local cops, will drag that clubs name through the media and or mud,
    just because of the actions of a few, and even of those few some may not even be full patch holders in that club, it could just be a person that hangs out in a bar where members of said club drinks,
    But when a Motorcycle club`s name is mentioned in the same title w/ some kind of crime it sells papers and tends to tune in people the that news channel,
    And as always is a great way to keep the tax money pouring into the ATF,DEA,FBI, Coiffures.

    “Don’t believe none of what you see and only half of what you hear !”

    Good luck to all those involved in this, and any federal entrapment setup.

    please go here and sign then pass on to all your club brothers and friends, this is coming soon to your neighborhood and it needs to be stopped,click link below, “ANTI PROFILING BILL” please sign.

    A good pig, is one that’s not breathing.

    Five YEARS of investigation, by not one, not two, but count ’em, EIGHT agencies, two of which are feds, and they popped nine men, most of whom are durn near eligible for Social Security, for small time dope beefs and low-level firearm charges.

    Shit. They could have gotten more arrests, for heavier shit, in about five HOURS on a street corner on the West Side of the Chi.

    Five fucking YEARS. Figure out what that cost the taxpayer. Millions. Literally. And these poor mokes take it in the neck so a bunch of steroid-freak fedgoonies can make major bank.

    Meanwhile, back in Chicago, the Gangster Disciples, Maniacs, and Imperial Gangsters keep right on slinging dope and killing each other over corners.

    Are the Citizens of this country EVER gonna wake up?


    Well, maybe when the cage door clangs on them, or the Friendship Squad kicks in their door because their skin isn’t dark enough, but by then, it’ll be a day late and an occupation dollar short.

    When I saw their ages, my first thought was that you don’t get to that age, doing the things they (Feds, et al) claim these men do, and still breathe or not already be locked up.
