Cops Bust Brain Cancer Fundraiser

Police made eleven arrests within a two block radius of a fundraiser at Duffy’s Ale House in Lindenhurst, New York Saturday night and early Sunday morning.

The event, called “Bikers For Thomas Strong,” raised money to help continue the treatment of a 13-year-old Seaford, New York boy named Thomas Napoli who was diagnosed with an aggressive, rare brain tumor two years ago. When the tumor hemorrhaged it caused nerve damage to the extremities of his right side. The boy continues to need extensive care. His other benefactors have included the John Theissen Children’s Foundation, Seaford Little League, Adelphi University, the Long Island Hitmen Lacrosse team and the Tampa Bay Rays.

Long Island Pagans

“Bikers For Thomas Strong” also attracted police attention because it marked both the 50th anniversary and the reopening of the Pagans Long Island chapter. That chapter was decimated by a largely bogus federal racketeering case in 2010 based on an FBI investigation called “Operation On The Road Again.” The Long Island chapter’s president at that time, Jonathan Richard “Junior” Ebeling, became a cooperating witness in that case.

At least 300 motorcycle enthusiasts attended the event Saturday night.

Police from Suffolk and Nassau Counties, New York State Police and Metropolitan Transportation Authority police surrounded the event and performed courtesy safety stops and searches on bikers as they left the event between 7:45 p.m. and 1 a.m.

Five Clubs

According to published reports, police arrested eleven men and seized five handguns, a rifle and a shotgun, a baton, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and three vehicles.

The men arrested included six Pagans from North Carolina and Delaware, two members of the Dirty Ones Motorcycle Club from New Jersey and the Bronx, a member of the Steel Wheels Motorcycle Club in Pennsylvania, and single members of the Black Sheep Motorcycle Club and the Armored Saints Motorcycle Club from New Jersey.

All eleven men were arraigned today in District Court in Central Islip, New York.

    While Paladin’s comments are directly on point, they’re not rocket surgery.

    If we, as a group, stop carrying shit at events. Don’t carry drugs, don’t carry unlicensed weapons, be super, -super- clean… People -might- start to see what’s happening.

    The bit about leaving a signed letter with your lawyer that you’re not carrying, and you expect to get rolled by the cops might help you, it’s an interesting idea I had not considered.

    But there’s another thing we need to be concerned about.

    There is nothing to stop the cops from claiming they found 5 tons of cocaine in your back pocket.

    They shot down 9 people on broad daylight, and got away with it. You think they’re gonna blink at a little evidence planting?

    @Paladin “The best way to spoil a good deed, is to give the cops the opportunity to do so. What better way to discredit the cops and show the public what total assholes the cops truly are, than to make sure they come up empty handed?” That is exactly right and what I hammer tirelessly into the heads of my brothers…..

    @paladin – agree with you 100%. Wise words my friend.

    @corso – I agree with you as well. Is it just bad luck and coincidence? A snitch maybe? But honestly another well known dominant club will have a charity event and you will get a few cop cars and maybe a few plain clothes investigators taking pictures but no fucking G.T.F. and triple the surveillance including “courtesy LEO checkpoints” lol.. to make sure all scooters are safe like a pagans event.

    It’s gotten to the point where I honestly feel bad for the 16’s. Growing up on the island in the 1990’s they were some badass motherfuckers. 16’s were real traditional 1%ers.. TCB was a part of a 16’s daily itinerary. It’s a shame they are so highly targeted these days.

    Make no mistake, like it or not, war has long since been declared against the biker community. To gain an advantage one must study and understand the enemy. The cops have gone to great lengths and tax payer expense to study bikers in general and especially those that are patched. Like any decent tactician, the cops exploit weakness and work to neutralize strengths. The time is long overdue for those living on the motorcycle outlaw frontier to understand their enemy and act accordingly.

    Something to keep in mind:

    If stopped for a sobriety check, the cop will try and convince you that your best bet is to have a blood draw done, because it’s the most accurate and that the meter will sometimes register a false positive, which will cause you to be arrested. What the cop isn’t telling you is that it is virtually impossible to fight a blood test result in court, due to the scientific nature of the test and those administering it. On the other hand, the meter’s integrity can be challenged because it’s a mechanical contraption and as such, is fallible, due to outside influences and needing re-calibration at set intervals. Also the officer needs certification and annual re-certification to operate the device and administer the test. The cop will also neglect to tell you that even though you may be under the legal limit for arrest, you can still be arrested for driving under the influence.
    Factors that can cause one to fail a FST (Field Sobriety Test) are physical infirmities such as back surgeries, hip and shoulder replacements, etc. the point to all of the foregoing is that if one knows the law better than the other guy, one doesn’t have to break it.

    Below are links to the firearm and knife laws of the different States, as they pertain to the concealed and open carry of concealable weapons.

    Bottom line? Know what you’re doing and where you’re doing it. knowing the law means you have a better chance of remaining an outlaw on the motorcycle outlaw frontier, than an outlaw on the yard.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to)

    The Fourth Amend. secures the inalienable right to be free from unreasonable search and seizure of both property and people. The Bill Of Rights, organic U.S.Law (U.S.Consti.1787), prohibits government or any gov. agents from performing ANY unreasonable searches or seizures.

    Pursuant to U.S. Law, any search made without probable cause is unreasonable, the fruits of said search inadmissible evidence in court, regardless of any items found.

    The word “courtesy” as used by the no-good pigs and gov. attorneys means free, as in no charge. EVERY attendee possessed the secured inalienable right to refuse consent to the search of their person and vehicles for lack of probable cause to search. Any gov. argument of personal or public “safety” fails.

    “The right of the people(gov, has no protected rights) to be secure in their persons and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures SHALL NOT BE VIOLATED”…

  11. Meh Says:

    Paladin is wise. Event attendees might document confirmation by their own lawyer that they are carrying zero contraband but they expect to be arrested and searched. That could negate any planted evidence but I defer to the lawyers here on how to do that.

    Sterilize any transport too of course. When you know you are targeted it’s silly to bring gifts for your opponent…

  12. Lone Rider Says:

    This brings me back to the year 1975, when a friend of mine who had a 15 year old little brother that walked 3 houses down once or twice a week to supply the local P.D., its weekly pot. This went on for a couple of years until the little brother moved away.

    So this last summer I was watching a “news,” program about keeping the inner city kids off the streets and off the dope. The man leading the discussion was a P.O., who was obviously a steroid abuser. Yeah! Look up to me little kids, I’m a lying ass hypocrite. I’m so big, I got muscles in my shit, but I better not catch you smoking a joint. Fucking Goober Smoocher!

    Then you wake up during the night to the theme of the “Cops Reloaded,” and there is just about always some steroid thug assed cop got his hands around some little scrawny bastards neck. Remind me who the real criminals are?

    Quote: Greco noted that all but one of the men lived outside New York State. “Isn’t that convenient?” he said. “They [Pagans] have a local chapter that is very big. It think it’s very peculiar that everyone who was stopped and arrested had out-of-state plates.”

    No mention of the three vehicles in this article, just weapons and drugs.

    Petty harassment by the police is a fact of life on two wheels. Magnify X10 if you put a target on your back.
    Know your gun laws if you are legally packing, for your own state, your destination state, and all states en route.
    Drugs, really? If you just gotta have that shit, take a minute to properly stash it. Preferably with the owner of a vagina riding in a cage.

    The cards are marked, the deck is stacked, and the odds are ever against you.

  14. chromedome Says:

    paladin hit the nail right on.any event fundraiser coc meeting or anything of the sort where patches will be flyin should be expected to be harassed by local leo. if they continue to harass but come up empty handed then that opens the door for clubs to start suing and filing complaints against the police. we as a collective community HAVE to start trying to out think and stay a step ahead in this chess game.
    i have never met any 16’s but my hats off and full respect is given for raising money to help this innocent child who is suffering and for having to put up with constant bullshit from the REAL criminals called the police.
    to ANY cop who reads this from L.I., shame on you for tryin to disrupt this event you coward piece of shit. why aren’t any of you trying to help this family instead of throwing salt on a good cause? is it because your scared the public will stop being brainwashed into thinking clubs are this menacing threat to the society? thank you as always rebel i know my opinion is minimal to your site as a whole but you are the only truth in a media full of bullshit. respects to the real.

  18. Big Ang Diamondback Says:

    @knucklhead
    I was thinking the same thing yesterday. What’s next? The government creates the TRTF. The “toy run task force” . Even charity events that raises THOUSANDS of dollars for those in need are being targeted. This year expect to see a lot of dangerous dirty tattooed Santa clauses pulled over on baggers.
    FTIO FTUO FGC and porkie donut lovers please give it a rest. It’s a fucking cancer charity.

    I guess all the street gangs took the day of like ms and all the nigger gangs and the Herion epdemic is over…… since the pigs have to bother mc’s having a fundraiser. How come when other mc”s have events like this on longisland not one person is harassed or pulled over or anything something is fishy how pagans are always plagued with cop harassment and others are not. I smell money under the table or alot of talk..:.

  20. Road Whore Says:

    Jackbooted communist pigfucks.

    I’m with Paladin: if the cops applied the same search-and-seizure tactics to their own, or to any group of average citizens, the arrest numbers and amount of “illegal” crap found would probably run much higher.

    And then there’s this quote from Paradise Police Chief, Jesse Stone, played by Tom Selleck (Yeah, I’ve watched all of them.) where he explains that he isn’t in the right or wrong business, he’s in the legal or illegal business. We need to change repressive laws that make no sense, especially when a percentage of the cops perpetrating the bust are using some type of illegal drugs themselves.

    And folks who’ve said that RUBs or other types would get a wink and a nod or a slap on the wrist are correct. This vendetta against bikers smacks of the old days in the USSR and East Germany.

    Respects to Rebel and the real regulars, and as always Ride Free.

  21. Lost Cause Says:

    “….police surrounded the event and performed courtesy safety stops and searches on bikers as they left the event….

    So did this “safety check” include checking lights, fluid levels and tire pressure, or just pat downs, license and registration checks, and searching saddlebags? Fucking bullshit.

    Actually, if the cops did as you suggest, there would probably have been more arrests.

  26. Michael V Says:

    Appears LE is empowered by this Waco debacle. That doucebag Waco “spokesman” running for Sheriff and Abel Reyna all over the news, which as an elected public official is like crack cocaine, doesn’t help.

    It also appears that Waco is turning a corner. When something goes to one extreme it typically ends up at the other before settling out somewhere in the middle. Fairly certain that is going to happen in this case. Waco can only control the story for so long. When it does I’m hopeful that harassing MC’s will be an LE career killer and not enhancer.

  27. Sieg Says:

    And I wonder how many of these big-time busts go away when they find out the weapons were legal.

    Respect to the Pagans, and to all the other Patches that came out to HELP A KID WITH CANCER.

    Utter disrespect, disdain, contempt and piss on the pigs and those who ordered the pigs to do such lowly, cowardly deeds to folks only trying to help another human being.

    “According to published reports, police arrested eleven men and seized five handguns, a rifle and a shotgun, a baton, marijuana, cocaine, methamphetamine and three vehicles.”

    The best way to spoil a good deed, is to give the cops the opportunity to do so. What better way to discredit the cops and show the public what total assholes the cops truly are, than to make sure they come up empty handed? If the cops continually come up empty handed, people will notice, perceptions will change. Changed perceptions caused anti-motorcycle profiling laws to be enacted.

    Outsmarting the local cops isn’t all that hard, but it does require a little effort, like waking up in the morning. Outsmarting the Feds. requires one to keep their mouth shut and to disassociate themselves from those that are known liabilities. When conversing with others, don’t say or agree to anything that you wouldn’t say or agree to in court. Now really, how hard is all of that?

    Negative, Army Reserve drill weekend.Actually I was surprised to hear about it, pretty much on what you said about the cops harrassing them relentlessly..

    I’m happy for the little boy, Thomas Napoli, and I hope the fundraiser alleviates the tremendous financial stress his mom and pop must be under. Good job, 16’s and all the other clubs that participated.

    300 bikers, 11 arrests, if the pigs targeted any other group of citizens the same way they would get the same results.

  34. Big Ang Diamondback Says:

    Thanks for posting this Rebel. These are my current stomping grounds. Nassau/Suffolk. I wasn’t at the event, but I received a few calls about it and also read this mornings paper to see the news. im not going to talk business and territory because I know this isn’t the place but what I will say is the pagans were once the dominant force on Long Island years back, but they have really taken a beating with LE the last 15 years or so. I’m just a young whipper snapper but the pagans are really having a tough time out here these days. They can’t even take a piss without getting cited for disturbing the peace. The cops literally stalk them. Most of the shit the cops are throwing at them is minor bullshit. They are throwing guys in overnight for personal use marijuana and some minor shit that a RUB would get a citation or slap on the wrist for.

    Let me tell you this, this charity event is the real deal and this event was created 100% for that little boy. Bravo for the huge amount of clubs and citizens that made it out. Don’t let the media tell you otherwise. If the cops didn’t put half the force on this event in advance, this event would’ve went on without a hitch, everyone would’ve had a great time , and no one would’ve been arrested. The only reason this all happened is because our tax dollars put the Gang Task Force and triple the squad cars on the scene for constant monitoring.

    Much Respect to all the hardcore A.R. readers and of course, Rebel.
