Police Overtime Season To Peak

It is nearing the peak of overtime season for police in the northern hemisphere thanks to the world’s one percenter motorcycle clubs.

The last couple of weeks, law enforcement’s biggest benefactor has been the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club. Last week members held a big national run in Ottawa, Canada. This week the club is partying this week in Cripple Creek, Colorado.

Twelve day from now local, state and federal police will convene for their big, annual zero tolerance festival in Sturgis, South Dakota.


Actually, there were more public disturbances at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland than at the Angels’ Canada run – to the disappointment of many. A producer with CTV News Channel in Toronto named Melissa Myers put out an urgent appeal for any biker expert to go on camera by FaceTime or Skype “for a quick, three to five minute, interview on the HA in Ottawa this weekend.” Maybe Steve Cook was available. He can usually think of something bad to say. The citizens of Ottawa couldn’t.

The Ottawa Citizen reported, the “Angels largely seemed to play tourist.” The paper quoted Sarah Shown, the manager at an upscale restaurant called the Metropolitain Brasserie, who thought, “They were really polite, very well-behaved, honestly they were a delight.”

Ottawa police had described the run “as organized crime coming from all over Canada meeting in one location.” Local cops were reinforced by police from Ville de Gatineau, the Ontario Provincial Police and Sûreté du Québec. CTV reported that something called the “Biker Enforcement Unit…set up outside the (Carlsbad Springs) clubhouse, identifying and photographing each and every member before they enter.  Police say the bikers have a legal obligation to comply with police at the check-in point.”

Cripple Creek

In Cripple Creek, a high elevation mining town that became a gambling town when the mines closed, the ATF, FBI, DEA, Homeland Security Investigations, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Army Criminal Investigations Command, Teller County Sheriff’s Office, Cripple Creek Police Department, Colorado Springs Police Department, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Canyon City Police Department and other agencies have taken over the local high school for a command center. There is no doubt that there will be more police than bikers in Cripple Creek this week. Probably there will be more federal police in town than bikers.

Law enforcement officials seem to be in a panic over the possibility that the Angels might open a charter in nearby Colorado Springs in the next year and they see the Cripple Creek run as a prelude to that.

Residents have a slightly different view. They are afraid the Angels won’t spend enough. One local resident grumbled, “They don’t spend much money gambling wise. They even brought their own food truck, set up a tent and feed members.”

Don’t worry Cripple Creek. There is always “The Salute To American Veterans Rally” in August. And in the meantime, all those cops have all that overtime money burning holes in their pockets.

    The shootout between rival biker gangs and police left nine people dead and at least 20 others wounded.

    Can you really be considered a “rider”, let alone “lone rider” if you’re riding
    a Vespa?!

    Respects to the real & especially Rebel

    Three-quarters of the annual police budget, ?11 billion, goes on pay, and Mrs May told forces that must change. But the Police Federation warned any cuts on top of the two-year public sector pay freeze would damage morale, adding that she “clearly undervalued” officers’ work.

    I didn’t find much, other than snippets of “info” published at that time. (Links in my post above.) You have something new?


  5. Lola Says:

    Phuque, Do a search and read about the incident in Corfu.
    Multiple Witnesses. Those three Canadians are not going home anytime soon

  6. Mercyful Fate Says:

    Rode down to WV the previous weekend for the Mountainfest rally to see Kix, Buck Cherry, and Montgomery Gentry play. Noticed an uptick in bacon after the arrival of a certain MC and support club. They didn’t roll in very deep and there were some ol’ ladies with them. God forbid that an MC stroll into an event to have a good time like everyone else.

  7. Phuquehed Says:

    How about some cites for that, lone. Until then, it’s easy to see why you *are* a ‘lone rider’…I wouldn’t piss in your tank if it allowed me to stay away from dicks like you.

  8. rollinnorth Says:

    Maybe someone should do some research before spouting off about incidents in foreign lands.

    The only public “statement” about that incident was what the victim’s sister said the victim said.
    “‘Due to the Privacy Act, further details on these cases cannot be released,’ department of foreign affairs spokesman Nicolas Doire said in an email.”

    Even in Greece, there is a presumption of innocence.
    “1 On 10 December 1948, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the General Assembly of the United Nations. Greece was one of the 48 countries who voted for this declaration. No country voted against it although there were 8 abstentions. Article 11 of this declaration states: ‘Everyone charged with a penal offence has the right to be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law in a public trial at which he has had all the guarantees necessary for his defence.’.

    2 The Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms of the Council of Europe has been adopted by Treaty and is binding on all EU member states, which includes Greece. Article 6.2 of that convention states: ‘Everyone charged with a criminal offence shall be presumed innocent until proved guilty according to law’.”

    3 Canadian HA’s are still in jail In Corfu Greece awaiting trial for stomping to death An innocent local At their world run. maybe that’s what The cops are trying to prevent Happening Here.

  10. Hangaround Says:

    Hell, our recent support club event had the fucktards circling overhead in a helicopter and running an audio \ video recording van nearly 24 x 7. Could not believe it. Guess the local sherrifs needed to justify a budget increase.

  11. NCRider Says:

    What bothers me is that the majority of citizens are ignorant to bikers and clubs just as they are to the real world of our “injustice” system. Yet they always know the most. They are always doing the “right thing”. I guess they think when the “gangs” come to town, they camp out and lay around some field all day with wild women drinking and doing drugs. They don’t consider that just maybe these men are spending hard earned money from their paychecks on expensive hotel rooms and restaurants. Yes, just maybe they are taking a few days off work doing what they enjoy, just like the rest of America does. And no, they didn’t come to “one location” to have organized crime. Now wouldn’t that be stupid anyway. BUT the piggys will prevail and set everyone straight.

    no guys, the biggest collection of crooks and thieves have been in Phili all week

  13. Nuke n' Pave Dave Says:

    It’d sure be nice if the damn cops would just stick to policing their side of the street and leave us to ours.

  14. BigUglyMotherFather Says:

    Damn, reminds me of back in ’79 when they gathered at the HARLEY rendezvous in Patterson NY. Almost all of of NY’s 1% clubs were hosted there as well as the charters from all over and there was Pigs EVERYWHERE!
    Flying, driving, walking, crawling piglets with roadblocks up the ass. I was just a prospect then but ain’t nothing changed ‘cept maybe my hair

  15. IronRider Says:

    Holy typos in my first post. Apologies if it seems like I was drinking and typing

  16. IronRider Says:

    It’s funny that Law Enforcement wants to play up how danger is in the air and trouble is coming anytime there is a MC Gathering someplace. Law Enforcement hypes it up to the media and to the public, but yet when it happens as it did in Ottawa most of the business owners had nothing but good things to say and how that had NO problems with the members of these MC’s.

    Yet though Law Enforcement directed how many tens of thousands of dollars to basically stop and check peoples ID. look over there bikes and take pictures of MC members coming and going.

    Not to mention you had the medal hitting up anyone who might say something bad but they couldn’t find any citizen that had anything bad to say, Minus the ones guy from Colorado who wished the MC members would spend more money for food purchases and not have had a food truck at their event…LOL

    I would like to see what the bill was from the respective Law Enforcement agencies for there little operation. We never ever hear how much cash they wasted on this show of force put on’s that Law Enforcement goes out of their way to put on for the media and allegedly the public. I believe if the taxpayers knew what these little shows from Law Enforcement cost, they’d be howling mad at the waste of money these have become.

    I would be the worst that happened was traffic tickets for speeding or equipment related ones like burnt out tail light or some shit like that. It really is a joke and the MC’s could give a fuck if the cops camp out, they and they’re members aren’t going to do anything stupid especially when you have been invited to someone’s house for an event.

  17. Potmetal Says:

    What BMW said.

    Perhaps we should crowdfund truckloads of 1%er shirts down to the border. Then maybe these assholes would start harassing some of terrorists that are strolling in unchecked, rather than fuck with decent people.

  18. oldshove Says:

    I think they where so terrified of the HA that they had to prove they where real men and go beat a mentally handicap to death

  19. Jackie Treehorn Says:


  20. Phuquehed Says:

    In other words, members of the largest criminal gang gathered in Ottowa – the poLICE and fedtards.

  21. Wino Enzed Says:

    Must be hellish for the police with all those bikers around, they wont have near as much time to beat and shoot all those coloured folk.

  22. oldshove Says:

    There was a gang killing in Ottawa over that weekend. Five Ottawa police officers beat a mentally handicapped guy to death .

  23. Dan-O Says:

    “the ATF, FBI, DEA, Homeland Security Investigations, Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Army Criminal Investigations Command, Teller County Sheriff’s Office, Cripple Creek Police Department, Colorado Springs Police Department, El Paso County Sheriff’s Office, Canyon City Police Department and other agencies have taken over the local high school for a command center.”

    And in related news, local Krispy Kreme and Dunkin Donuts franchises are showing record profits this week.

  24. BMW Says:

    Yep, all of us Bikers are no good, except for meaningless grants for police overtime (only when THEY want it!) and, of course, if we gamble… Ironic, since corrupt LEO like to include Friday night poker games in recent RICO indictments in Indiana. Of course gambling is perfectly OK at the monopoly casinos…

  25. popeye Says:

    Cripple creek restaurant owners better not hold their breath waiting for cops to boost business. They usually find a place to give them free/discounted food then quickly wear out their welcome.
