Why James Hicks Died

The search warrant that got Pagans Motorcycle Club patch holder James Marcus “Jimbo” Hicks, Jr. (above) killed last week is still an official state secret. So is the affidavit which asked a judge to authorize the search.

So is the name of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agent who wrote that affidavit. It is not yet an official secret that the name of the Resident Agent in Charge of the ATF’s Richmond office is Brian Swann.

The details of this shooting are secret not because revealing them might jeopardize an ongoing criminal investigation but rather because they might jeopardize the bureaucrats responsible for James Hicks homicide. If they were made known there is a very slight chance that some policemen might be embarrassed. There is an even a remote possibility that one of them might lose his job.

Items To Be Seized

Hicks’ widow Cathy was standing right next to him when a cop pretending to be a commando shot her husband twice. It was the darkest hour before the dawn. The middle-aged husband and his middle-aged wife went to confront whoever was trying to break into their home. They went together. He picked up a varmint gun. She was standing so close to him she could “feel the wind” of the bullets that killed him.

Then the police kicked Cathy Hicks out of her house. They did not have the decency to let her hold her husband while he died. Hours later she had to go to a gas station to use a bathroom. Witnesses at the gas station said she was still crying.

The top secret search warrant, which nobody is ever supposed to see lists the “Items to be seized” to be seized from James and Cathy Hicks’ home as “PMC members’ colors and club memorabilia such as patches, shirts, cuts, jewelry, belts, wristbands, wallets, walking sticks, posters, glassware, statues, plaques, business cards or club cards and the PMC constitution or any document containing PMC membership information or PMC rules.”

The Nature Of The Warrant

The warrant that precipitated James Hicks’ homicide was a “Knock and Announce” search and seizure warrant.

In the United States, a warrant must be obtained before a search can be conducted in any place in which a person may have “a reasonable expectation of privacy:” Such as their home after dark. A warrant authorizes officers of the court to search for specific items at a specific place at a specific time. Search warrants are issued to find and seize contraband or evidence of criminal activity.

Only the judge who signed the warrant can explain why this warrant specified the intrusion of someone’s home before dawn or what criminal activity Pagans “memorabilia” might evidence. According to Virginia law, under the conditions of this warrant the police were required to knock, identify themselves and then wait a reasonable time for the Hicks to open the door.

A Virginia State Police spokesman named Sergeant Thomas Molnar said last week that police scrupulously followed the law regarding these conditions. Molnar claims Hicks “confronted” officers with a shotgun, that he was “ordered” to drop the gun, that he “refused” to do so and then he was shot by an officer wearing body armor and a Kevlar helmet who was acting in self defense. Molnar was not there. Cathy Hicks, who was, said her husband never had time to lay down his gun before he was executed.

Search Warrant Return And Inventory List

Last night, Richmond, Virginia television station WTVR announced it had lawfully obtained the “search warrant return and inventory list” from the Hicks home invasion. The items seized from the home included Hick’s “shotgun, a bank statement, assorted photos, (2) motorcycle helmets, MC Club patches, 2 Pagan walking sticks, camera, Samsung video camera” and “assorted ammunition.”

So that is why James Hicks was killed. That is why Cathy Hicks was shut out of her home for hours and compelled to grieve in a gas station rest room. For, “assorted photos.”

Don’t tell anybody. The warrant and the inventory list are secret.

James Hicks was buried last Saturday.

    Ok, let’s change the scene, the set, and the costumes. Lights, Camera, and Action.

    James Hicks is riding down the street of his home town on his moped. Doing the speed limit. After, a double sixteen hour shift. He’s wearing kakhi cargo shorts, flip flops, and a Dallas Cowboys jersey. (He cleans up and showers at work, being a mechanic). He’s got his target pistol in a saddle bag thrown over the luggage rack on the back. (Cause he plans on bagging some squirrels for his wife to cook for supper). He smokes a little pot. So, he’s got a couple of joint’s on him. He’s been working his ass off lately for minimum wage in order to feed his family. And felt he needed a little help to stay awake. So, he’s got 6/10ths of a gram of speed on him. Local cop (Whom, has been taught from the academy to hate the Dallas Cowboys) pulls him over to shake him down. Cop runs all the paperwork. Everything comes back clean. Then proceeds to violate James’ Right to Privacy. And, begins rooting through James’ saddlebags and pockets. James doesn’t fight to defend his U.S. Constitutional Rights. But, is cooperative in all-ways. (Even noted by the violating officer). James is arrested for petty possession. Is peacefully transported to the jail and bonded out. Four months, or so go by.

    James is working. Staying clean. Staying out of trouble. Is taking care of his family. Riding around on his moped wearing his Dallas Cowboys jersey. SUDDENLY, in the deepest hour of his sleep he is awaked by someone smashing in the front door of his farmhouse. (Now, everyone knows the new technique rural burgalers use is; Smashing through the the front door of an unsuspected farmhouse in the middle of the night. Killing everyone in the house and stealing all the valuables). So, James’ leaps up to defend himself and family. Grabs his legally owned shotgun he uses for duck hunting. And, runs for the front door to confront this violent attack on his home. With, his brave wife right next to him. He and his wife are immediately blinded by several 3 million candlepower flashlights. They hear muffled voices covered by face masks. And then, GUN SHOTS. James is immediately shot and mortally wounded. His wife, who is in intense-shear-horor is immediately dragged away from her dying husband. While, he lay dying. Now, by himself with only the attackers who just shot him. He dies alone, weeping for his family. His wife must go to the nearest gas station to call for help. Still not knowing if this attack is warranted or not. The attackers, are local and federal agents seeking by Warrant to confiscate James’ Dallas Cowboys jersey and any other Dallas Cowboys paraphernalia. Nothing else. Deadly force, for the confiscation of clothing? Of, a known cooperative citizen? Jesus Christ! Picket in the streets, in front of the courthouse, the federal building, and the local and national TV stations. And blog across the world. These Rogue-Agent-Assassins have absolutely lost their fucking minds! This kind of evil is exactly what we rescued the Iraqi people and a few other of the worlds nations from. General Colin Powell once said, “It ain’t paranoia, when they’re really trying to kill you”. Who’s next? Let’s start marching, NOW! Before it’s you. Bikers need to do protest rallies at our State and National Capitals. To preserve our Rights of “LIFE”, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness. God Bless America. That’s us. You and me.

    EXCELLENT COMMENT, MR AMERICA! YOU ARE ABSOLUTELY RIGHT….WHO IS NEXT??!

  5. Harley Rider in Dinwiddie Says:

    I would just like to add that the Dinwiddie County local police were never notified about what was going down. The sherriff knew nothing and it was a total surprise. We are praying the truth will prevail in this situation and we are praying for Cathy.

  6. Snow Says:

    It’s a sad fact that we live in a police state, your rights and freedoms were suspended long ago and the force of compliance is going down as we read and write. America today, as well as a large chunk of Europe is no longer ours but the select few who make policy and law. It has gotten so bad that they kill you weather you comply or not, I normally don’t advocate violence but if your going down anyway take as many of the bastards with you as you can. My condolences to Cathy Hicks as well to all that are shot down in cold blood by these so called law enforcement bastards.

  7. Mr. America Says:

    To answer your question Bystander. I’m not sure who’s next. Maybe all crosseyed people that are left-footed. Because they’re odd compared to the rest of society. I don’t know. But, I think the techniques the Feds. are using are clearly in question here. Or, certainly should be. From the recruiting and training of these undercover agents to the handlers that are supposed to be overseeing their mission. It appears to me this lack of oversight goes all the way to the top of the agency that some of these guys and gals are working for. Though, some of the dinosaurs running these operations are still living in the age of pre-internet and civilian-global communication. Where, we the people of the world now, converse with open dialog about all types of issues. Mainly, attempting to discern the truth. That was the down-fall of most of the communist-bloc countries. “Outside communication”. Where the civilian population was able to learn fact from fiction. North Korea is a prime example of paranoid-government-isolation and false propaganda.

    Now back to the immediate issue here. This guy (James Hicks), doesn’t (In my opinion) to have been the type to be warranted this kind of treatment (Public Enemy #1) by the feds. It’s quite possible, the Judge that signed this “simple search warrant” may have been misled. However, the only way this man will ever get justice for what happened to him and his family is, if his family continues to pursue the truth and make it public to the world every chance they can. Or, this will probably be swept under the carpet and forgotten, I’m sad to say. The Bible says, The devil comes like a thief in the night to kill, steal, and destroy. It looks very-much like this is what happened to James Hicks and his family. They killed him. Stole his property. And, devastated his family. That pretty much raps it up. Regards

  8. Not Surprised Says:

    Good post Mr America. You are absolutely correct about search warrants. For the most part, Judges “rubber stamp” them and of course, once this is done, the Judge is virtually relieved of all liability because the affiant was “a sworn Officer of the Court”.

    It rarely takes more than a signed statement from an investigator stating that “reasonable suspicion exists that there is probable cause…’, and perhaps a few blurbs about surveillance, confidential information, etc. A warrant of ANY kind does not automatically have to hold up in court.

    You will rarely, if ever, see much verbal exchange between a Judge and a sworn Officer concerning this.

  9. Big Guns Says:

    I say shoot all the faggot pagans, then take out the hell’s angels, then the outlaws .. etc., etc. they are all a bunch of drug dealing pussies .. and promote the office that shot the scum bag !!!!!!!!!!

  10. Rebel Says:

    Dear Big Guns,

    Just a dispicable fucking remark. You are not worth my breath but I cannot just let you get away with saying that without challenging you. Louis Brandeis said, “The most basic human right is the right to be let alone.” Hicks and his wife deserved to be let alone.

    Is this Ciccone again or do all you guys do the thing with the multiple exclamation marks.

  11. hatchet Says:

    fuck atf and state police goobers manthey had no right to kill this man and nor did they have the right to chase his poor wife out of the house while this man lay dyinon his own house floor.Feds and other law men do not have the right to just shoot because what I gather by what his wife said he did not even point his gun at these asswholes be 4 he was shot down.If the cop who shot him was not a cop and someone kicked in his door would he not fill fear and grab for protection? Hell yes he would and I say dude if you are now in to killing bikers to be someones hero just remember none of your budddies pulled the trigger so why did you?Also when its time to meet GOD can you lie to him and say it was in self defense.Remember he knows all and speaking of heroes you ol buddy killed someones hero that morning and also a fellow human being.You are the scum.

  12. Slick1 Says:

    Let me quess big guns, you must be with law enforcement and you were PICKED on when you were young so you decided to get even with every bully and put on a Badge.
    Well even with a badge on, it doesnt give you shits the right to gun down a man in HIS OWN HOUSE.
    Im sure if you were at home and bikers busted into your house you would come out firing. Well its a shame that he didnt come out firing so it would be justified, instead he was MURDERED!
    Thats ok when its cops doing the kILLIN and im sure that everyone else (who didnt fire) will LIE THERE ASSES OFF for the shooter (PUSSY) who couldnt refrain from being TRIGGER HAPPY. I HOPE They BURN HIS ASS but im sure they wil give him a Pussy Badge instead.
    I would only hope that your ass would have the oppertunity to be locked in a room with your gun (and 1 bullet) and members from all the clubs you’ve named and REREAT your wish to them PERSONALLY Face to Face and then we would see Who is the PUSSY…SNIFF SNIFF I SMELL a PUSSY BITCH R.T.L.L.T.R.

  13. Russell Says:

    I am so sorry for these people and the way James Hicks was murdered. A few months later a lady who taught Sunday School in Culpepper was shot and killed in a church parking lot. WTF is going on with Law enforcement. They have eviscerated the publics trust. I wouldn’t call one I don’t give a damn what the situation is. If one was in trouble I don’t know that I would come to there assistance. The other things the article fails to mention is that Mr. Hicks was supposed to be some kind of drug kingpin. No drugs were found in his home on his property or in his place of business. The agent who shot Mr. Hicks should be tried for murder. Bottom line.
