Weed Not Murders

On Wednesday, agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and local police raided what Lake County, Indoana Sheriff John Buncich is calling a “known hang-out of Outlaws Motorcycle Club members” in Calumet Township in northern Indiana.

In addition to being Sheriff, Buncich is also active in politics and serves as Lake County Democratic party chairman. Technically, the “hangout” is the home of a man named Raymond “Shemp” Morgan Jr.

Buncich told The Times of Northwest Indiana that “the raid was conducted as part of the ongoing investigation into the June 7 homicide of Gerald Yager.”

Gerald Yager was the older brother of former American Outlaws Association regional boss and longtime federal fugitive Randy Mark “Mad” Yager. Randy Yager and his long time companion Margie Jelovcic were captured by U.S. Marshals and Mexican police as they enjoyed steaks and beers in a restaurant in Rosarito, Mexico on October 15, 2014. Jelovcic subsequently died of a gunshot wound to the head. Randy Yager was quickly transferred to a federal lockup in Wisconsin where he awais trial on various racketeering charges.

Gerald Yager was found handcuffed with his throat cut in his burning home in Gary, Indiana on June 6.

At the time of Randy Yager’s arrest, the Marshals Service was offering a $25,000 reward “for information leading directly to Yager’s arrest.” When Gerald Yager’s body was identified, Buncich said “investigators were looking into a statement from a relative of Gerald Yager’s that the slain man had received notes containing death threats he believed were from his brother.”

After Wednesday’s raid, Buncich announced police had found “a marijuana-growing operation” in Morgan’s basement.

    Congratulations to the good Sheriff for busting a poor guy growing his own personal pain medicine in his closet. We can all feel safer now. As Tom told us on another thread, “Drugs are ruining the nation”.

    As each day passes, living off the grid becomes more and more appealing. The trick is; trying to find a place where doing so won’t get you arrested and thrown in jail.

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

    Move to freer States so people who believe in freedom to consume cannabis can concentrate their political power away from bible thumping pigs.

    I wish all superstitionists had one neck and my hands were on it, for religion is naught but a rationale for Prohibition and slavery.

    When I was younger, I was told that as long as you had a little money in your pocket, they couldn’t get you for vagrancy. For the last 35 years I have carried around a folded up dollar bill in my wallet for just that purpose. Living in the woods has more benefits than drawbacks. These days I find myself wishing I had bought land even more secluded.

    Govt intrusion on private lives is out of control.

    I don’t think we are too many years away from legalization. New generations coming up aren’t buying into the Reefer Madness Myths. As long as they exercise their voting rights. They can make the change.

    Its just insane that in a day and age where same sex marriage is suddenly ok, that you can still be arrested for smoking/growing dope.

    Laws changed because gays had enough of government excluding them from entering a contract whose social benefit set is unique and thus not duplicable by a mere standard contract between consenting adults.

    That begs the question of when/if bikers will get pissed off enough to work politically for their rights.

    I worry if weed becomes legal who will they use to fill the prisons to capacity. Dont think for one minute that prison cell will sit empty and corporate profits will shrink. These newest biker round ups may be a look at whats to come. Cant fill the cells with blacks and get away with it anymore.

    @ Meh: Amen, and amen.

    @ Meh…when I was a young man growing up in West Texas I used to hear this man come on the radio with his social commentary:


    His tagline was: “I’m Eddie Chiles, and I’m mad as hell!”

    Bikers need to have such a spokesman/organization. Time to quit being subtle/quiet/clandestine and raise the fucking roof!

    Ride Free
