Keith Silva Sentenced

February 26, 2012

All Posts, News

Keith Allen Silva, a former President of the Berdoo chapter of the Vagos Motorcycle Club, was sentenced to 75 years in state prison last week for murder.

Silva and a former Berdoo chapter Sergeant at Arms named David Anthony “Kilo” Beltran were convicted of killing a Vagos prospect named Dennis Daoussis (photo above). Beltran was arrested for the murder in September 2007. He was sentenced last May to 50 years in the penitentiary.

“The case kind of hit a dead end,” a San Bernardino County cold case detective named Greg Myler told the San Bernardino Press-Enterprise after Beltran, who was in prison in Chino at the time, was arrested. “Witnesses and people who knew witnesses were afraid of retaliation if they were to offer any help to us.” Myler told the Press-Enterprise. “But sometime last year,” the account explained, “with the aid of strained relationships and the passing of time, people once connected to the Vagos gang began to talk.”

Two years later, after Silva’s arrest, the same paper explained that the investigation involved “a lot of shoe leather…which led detectives to Hawaii and Georgia for interviews.”

The Crime

Myler has said that Daoussis’ murder was “a culmination of things.” During Silva’s trial prosecutors said that Daousis had borrowed $3,000 from a Vago named Sammy Langager in order to buy a motorcycle. Daousis agreed to meet Langager in the parking lot of the TA Truck Stop in Ontario with the title to the bike. After Langager waited all night for Daousis he complained to Silva.

According to prosecutors, Beltran and Silva kidnapped Daousis from his home on Banana Road in Fontana, California, beat him, drove him to an isolated area near in Landers, California, then shot and killed him.

Off road riders found Daousis’ body on April 5, 2003.

The Legal Dance

Silva was convicted of murder, torture and kidnapping 14 months ago. Before sentencing, he asked Judge Ingrid Uhler for a new trial on grounds of being represented by an ineffective counsel. Uhler denied the motion.

Silva’s attorney, Stuart O’Melveny, intends to appeal the conviction.

    The prospect was murdered over $3000.00? Why not revoke his prospect status, kick his ass, throw him out and let the member he ripped off take back the bike or collect on the debt on his own? I agree with the previous poster that more than likely drugs were involved as $3000.00 is a stupid reason to kill someone and it shows bad on the Vagos MC itself to have elected someone who would behave in such a way to an officer’s position. Stupid move by these individuals and hopefully the Vagos can put this behind them, move on and make better choices in regards to their leaders in the future.

    Dave-0, The amount in dollars has nothing to do with it. Nothing. Why concern yourself with any club business.

    I am not a Vago, but I find it can be very disrespectfull when an outsider(which I am assuming you are here) gives input/advice on the choices of a clubs leadership & how that club(Vagos)should proceed with thier OWN business.

    Just my two cents, Dave-0, but in the long run I’ve been told it adds up.


  5. RVN69 Says:

    I don’t know how the Vago’s pick their leaders, I doubt you do either. The reason for that is that you and I are not Vago’s. It is always better to refrain from guessing what another clubs business is, at least that is my policy. I’ll talk shit all day about cops, but I stay out of another clubs business.

    Potius Mori Quam Foedare.

  6. Dave-O Says:

    The where was no disrespect intended. As far as I was concerned I was on the internet typing a response to an article. On top of that I pretty much figured why the hell would a Vagos give two shits what a guy on the Internet had to say? I’m on the Internet and they’re members of the Vagos MC. I’m a dude on the Internet, they’re what we are all reading and commenting on. Who gives a shit? If you were upset or felt disrepected by what I wrote on the Internet, I’m very sorry you felt that way. At the end of the day this is a site for information and conversation. No one should take themselves to seriously.

  7. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Hmmmmmm. . .

    Looks like I don’t have to say shit “Dave oh”… It has already been said by others with respect but in case you didn’t hear or understand STFU it’s NUYA.

    Viva Los Vagos

    I understand you are an know that many here are not..I am not a member of the club listed here but as you know we do have those members here. You are not hurting any feelings..just showing your ass. I understand this is the internet but because I do take myself seriously I write here the same as I would speak face to face…if more took this approach out of respect rather than the “hell man its only the internet” attitude…The internet would be a much more enjoyable place. I have read a couple of your posts and thought you to be someone who wanted to be taken seriously. RVN69 gave you a very strait forward heads up..your either going to take it or not… wont hurt my feelings a bit either way, but if you want to be taken seriously you will heed his advice. Its up to you.

    Just your average friendly, full contact biker,

  9. IrishDragon Says:

    I agree club buisness is club buisness. But these crazy sentences are just too much. I thought prison was supposed to reform you. Not put you in a cage and throw away the key. All this for the protection of the sheeple. Bullshit! Complete and utter bullshit.


  10. Glenn S. Says:

    The major clubs generally don’t fuck with anybody but their own and people that fuck with them. And they don’t ask me to bankroll them. Their business is theirs and not mine, as far as I’m concerned.

    The government, on the other hand, does fuck with anybody and everybody, and does force me to fund them. And they do some really bad shit in my name and everybody elses, and rather than stand up and say: “This is who we are”, they hide behind investigative secrecy, sealed court filings, national security, and a complient media, even as they claim to be about the people’s business.

    I know where to direct my contempt, and where my sympathies lie.

  11. eastcoaster Says:

    I happen to know 1st hand that Meth was not involved in Silva’s case. I will not comment on anyone else involved. know the facts involved before you say things that are not true.

  12. Rebel Says:

    Dear eastcoaster,

    I do not mention “meth” “new school” “crank” “ice” or make any other reference to methamphetamine in this story. The only commenter who refers to meth is you.

    This is the second comment in the last few days that has criticized me for saying something I did not say. I presume this really stupid comment is another of the endless attacks by the morons at the ATF to discredit me.

    Interesting name, too.


  13. eastcoaster Says:

    I was responding to a post where someone else mentioned Meth. This article is also misinforming. Neither one of these guys were convictied of Kidnapping. Sammy Langager was not waiting at the T&A for a title to the bike. The bike was never bought with Sammy’s money, so how can a title be givin. It was a few weeks later when Sammy met Dennis at the T&A. No bike or money was returned to Langager. All the snitches that testified said this was a personal thing with Sammy & not club business. So again lets print facts.

  14. rollinnorth Says:

    You have a lot more patience with some here than I would. Keep up the good work.

  15. Glenn S. Says:

    Rebel: “The only commenter who refers to meth is you.”

    Rebel, with respect, the first comment referenced meth: “AkWyomUt Clay: “Im willing to bet that they were tweeking hard on meth when they killed him Ahhh good old meth ….” Further comments mentioned “drugs” (Dave-O: “I agree with the previous poster that more than likely drugs were involved…”) and characterized the club referenced in your article in a disrespectful manner.

    Some of us were critical of Dave-O’s comments, but I don’t see anything in the comments that were critical of you for anything you did or did not say.

    Speaking only for myself, I am happy to be a part of the conversations here, and choose my words carefully as to show you the proper and earned respect on your site. But I believe you were incorrect in your last comment.

  16. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Simple don’t rip off a Brother period!

  17. Peggy L Says:

    I lived next door to Keith and his beautiful family. And yes I allowed Vogas’ to park their bikes in my driveway. I would swear on a stack of Bibles that Keith was NOT doing drugs, nor will I EVER believe that he is guilty of murder. Remember I lived NEXT door to Keith, and the walls were not that thich, I know for a fact that Keith was NOT involved in this, as a matter of fact he ordered the guys to do nothing!!! Keith is a wonderful, kind, loving family man!!!

  18. Outlaw biker club? Says:

    Troll alert. This commenter, coming to us today from Long Beach, claims to be in Oregon. That doesn’t always mean he is a cop but clearly the guy is lying right out of the gate.

    I never knew the vagos were outlaws. Up here in Oregon they let homosexuals in their club(taz, peewee and bam bam). I always thought it was cool of them to not discriminate. I seen taz servicing a guy in a truck wearing his colors.

  19. Gay biker club Says:

    Troll alert. This commenter, coming to us today from Long Beach, claims to be in Oregon. That doesn’t always mean he is a cop but clearly the guy is lying right out of the gate.

    The vagos are outlaws? Here in Oregon they have openly Gay members.

  20. Sieg Says:

    Rebel, when ya get these pig-ass chumps doing the troll gig, lieing about where/what they are, it might be productive to just put ’em on blast…print all their identifiers and let the chips fall.

    5 to 1

  21. Gay biker club Says:

    Sorry rebel, no lie. I am a former affiliate from Oregon. I don’t live there anymore. Ended my affiliation when I found out about Gay members and former cops(hardwire, grants pass chapter.) and yeah I’m in long beach so?

  22. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Seems some asshole has his panties in a twist? No heart ball-less motherfucker! What a punk ass bitch.

    Viva Los Vagos

  23. Not Surpised Says:

    Kinda sad when someone has a beef with a club or club member, they think they’ll get sympathy or credibility by posting garbage on an anonymous internet forum…

    In other words, fuck you Gay biker club. You could not “affiliate” your own ass with both hands…….

  24. credible Says:

    I am the one who posted as”gay biker club” and was a hang arround with a vagos farm the ones who matter,check it out for yourself.
    Hardwire from grant’s pass was a cop before patching out.they all know it too. I always wondered how dirtbags like toke were able to terrorize and shut down other clubs. Must be easy to act up when you have cops in your club. As for the fags, they know who they are.

  25. credible Says:

    For the record and for what its worth. The Oregon vagos are not representative of the California vagos whom I know to not tolerate former pigs in their club. For your own good check it out…….but I’m the asshole….pffffffft!

  26. Pig Says:

    What the fuck is going on these days?! I’m nowhere near being old, I’ll be 40 in Oct, but I swear sometimes I feel like the majority of the world had a big fucking meeting and my invite got lost in the mail! Did we all agree to suspend respect and common courtesy? Did minding your business keeping your mouth shut unless you actually had something to say stop being respectable qualities in a man and were they replaced with cowardice and selfishness? I’m not trying to give some Kumbaya or “can’t we all just get along” speech, but there used to be a certain respect and decorum and a way of doing things even between sworn enemies. Did we vote that shit out? How the hell did we get to a point where someone could come on an internet site and talk shit like this about a well respected MC without feeling like a piece of shit for doing it? I mean, if I had pulled some shit like that I wouldn’t be able to sleep for a fucking week knowing the wrong I’d done. And even if it’s true, which for the record I don’t believe for a second, what fucking good does it to do come on here and say it? It sets nothing straight and doesn’t accomplish anything. The only reason, then, to say it is just to piss people off. Do people like this not realize the lack of character this shows? Do they have friends sitting around them snickering, telling them that “was a good one”? Honest to God I understand less and less of the world we live in every day.

  27. credible Says:

    Well pig,it seems that giving people a heads up about people they think are family. Tell me would you rather not know that the guy you call brother. That guy you give your all for is really a faggot or worse a cop? Or would you rather find out from some”coward” on the internet. I’m doing the vagos and all 1%ers a service by outing theese clowns. So in my eyes its not for nothing. I was upset to realize the truth too. Hurt even. But in the end I’m better off for knowing. I regret coming off like a bitch at first in here but what’s true is true. If you are a vago check it out. It effects the credability of your whole club. That’s that.

  28. credible Says:

    Where is the comment pool from the peanut gallery?
    Oh, seems when someone has something real to say everyone shuts the fuck up huh? Not everyone with something bad to say is a troll…(whatever that is)

  29. AVAGOVFFV Says:

    Credible? Naaaaa you blew that when you started talking shit using the names “Outlaw biker club?” and “Gay biker club” asshole. If you got a beef go fix it, man up handle your shit do not flame a Club on the fucking internet thats a total bitch move. Now go do the respectable and honorable thing. You don’t know me but I assure you I’m the last evil Green prick you want get excited so think about your reply carefully I would prefer you just leave it alone and go about your life.

    Go be a man even if you got to eat crow or worse.

    Viva Los Vagos

    Out here on the internet you can be anything you want to be.

    It’s strange that so many people choose to be stupid.


  31. Base Says:

    A troll is a supernatural being in Norse mythology and Scandinavian folklore. In origin, troll may have been a negative synonym for a being.

    In Internet slang, a troll is someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.

    The noun troll may also refer to the provocative message itself, as in: “That was an excellent troll you posted.”

    While the word troll and its associated verb trolling are associated with Internet discourse, media attention in recent years has made such labels subjective, with trolling describing intentionally provocative actions and harassment outside of an online context.

    For example, mass media has used troll to describe “a person who defaces Internet tribute sites with the aim of causing grief to families.”

    Troll, that would be you Credible

  32. Austin Says:

    Hey Pig – My invite must have gotten lost in the mail too. I think it all started with Nancy “Just Say No” Reagan. As the so-called concerns about Political Correctness and Privacy have escalated – actual Manners and Respect have vanished. I’m a bit older than you – but I don’t remember anyone attributing suicide to bullying back when Sam Kinison was around.
    Privacy? people voluntarily post things about themselves you used to have to hire a detective to discover. Shame? Don`t make me laugh.

  33. DocB Says:

    Dear Pig
    I agree with your post. I also believe there is a strong silent presence of bikers on this thread that practice the principles and protocols of the traditional M\C. They only appear when they have something to say of substance. They mind, and take care of their own business and only post when it might be helpful to the community and never put anyone else’s business at risk. I personally know and respect posters here who walk the walk and don’t talk much.
    Trolls, Fucktards, and disrespectful morons seem to drift to the more visible top of the internet every time they post a mindless stream of consciousness. Their own character defects are the flags they wave that get your attention on a daily basis.

    Funny you call Keith a loving family man… This is the same man who was convicted of murdering my mother…. That kind and loving man shot her in the face rolled her body up in carpet and dumped her body in a ravine… That kind and loving man murdered my mom and she was his wife. Why don’t you ask that kind and loving man about Louise?
