Sinister Mobster Has Short Eyes

August 30, 2012

All Posts, News

Biker Reality Tee Vee is a bottomless pit. It was bad enough when the genre was about drama queens who build custom choppers for soulless corporations. It has already fallen much lower than that.

Yesterday afternoon a reality biker named Tommy “Gipsy” Quinn was arrested outside Sharp Grossmont Hospital in La Mesa, California east of San Diego and charged with lewd acts on a minor. Sharon Chen of Fox Television outlet KSWB in San Diego reported last night that police believe Quinn, who is 43, compelled his minor step daughter to fellate him at least six times. Chen reported, “We can tell you she is a child.”

La Mesa police Lt. Matt Nicholass said the offense was against “someone under the age of 18. I’m not going to get into specifics about the case.”

Chen said the investigation into the sexual assault began after police received “information from someone in the family.”

Nicholass said, “We had information from…from a parent that initially gave us some information. The detectives conducted a pretty thorough investigation and…uh…ended up arresting him.” Quinn has been married twice. He fathered four children with his first wife. He has two step children with his second wife Carla who is employed by the San Diego Police Department.

Quinn made bail yesterday and was scheduled to be arraigned today at the East County Regional Center in El Cajon, California.

The Laffing Devils

Quinn was the founder and President of a San Diego area motorcycle club named the Laffing Devils. He was allowed to retire from the club after members learned he was married to a local police officer. The Laffing Devils were dramatized on a Discovery Channel television show called The Devils Ride that aired last spring. The showed portrayed Quinn’s retirement as an expulsion that resulted from a power struggle between competing factions in the club. After the series aired, the Laffing Devils was expelled by the San Diego Confederation of Clubs. That organization encourages peace, harmony and cooperation among dozens of motorcycle clubs in San Diego County.

Discovery promoted the show as: “Life inside one of Southern California’s biggest motorcycle clubs doesn’t come easy…but it’s sure intriguing. For the first time ever, The Laffing Devils allows a never-before-seen look into the gritty world of motorcycle clubs.” Most people who knew anything about motorcycle clubs, including most members of the Laffing Devils, thought the show was hog wash.

Last Spring the show portrayed Quinn starting a new “motorcycle club” called the Sinister Mob Syndicate MC. That “club” is an invention of and property of the production company that invented The Devils Ride, Bischoff Hervey Entertainment Television, LLC. Discovery renewed the show for another season after five episodes.

No Comment

Neither the Discovery Channel nor Bischoff Hervey has issued a statement about Quinn’s arrest. Chen reported that the network did not intend to issue a statement for at least a day.

Yesterday the production company tweeted, “Big congrats to the big man @RustyCoones for his upcoming role in SOA!!!! Well deserved, talented guy. Kick Ass!” The tweet refers to retired Hells Angel, bike builder and musician Rusty Coones. Coones appeared in two episodes of The Devils Ride and will appear in one episode of the hit biker show Sons of Anarchy this year.

While not mentioning Quinn’s arrest directly, the production company did message two commenters with the twitter handles “@Sandmanldmc” and “@BubbaFVF.” Bishoff Hervey told them,  “we know there is serious and real issues here, production starts very soon….both of you keep it professional.”

Eric Bischoff, who co-founded Bischoff Hervey, is the author of a best selling book titled Controversy Creates Cash.

    May the road rise up to meet you.

    and rains fall soft upon your fields.
    And until we meet again,
    May God hold you in the palm of His hand.

    And as my Grandfather used to say, “May your soul be a half hour in heaven before the devil knows your gone!”

    btb my most sincere condolences at the loss of your friend, and also to his brothers in the VNVMC and his family.

    Fox 5 10:00 news just reported Mr. Quinn’s arraignment, which according to them had been set for today, has been postponed as the case “remains in review.” The report included Mr. Quinn’s former association with LD, several shots of the LD back patch, video of a large group of LD riding together, and of course a reference to the Discovery Channel. The little news blurb appeared to be more about LD than about the alleged suspect, and certainly didn’t make any reference to the trauma of child molestation, victim advocacy, or resource referrals for past/present victims. Not that I would expect that kind of pro-active reporting from Fox 5.

    I find it mortifying that attention was actually directed toward LD and the Discovery Channel and actually diverted from the alleged suspect and the alleged crime. Especially since there was, essentially, nothing to report. Fox 5 could have found a much easier way to make fun of LD (heck, everybody’s doing it)… But I am incensed that the brief story appeared to purposefully “implicate” ALL of LD rather than set Mr. Quinn apart as the lone suspect. I feel that it was a not-so-subversive dig at bikers in general. As in, “look, suburban families! Not only are the bikers scary and loud, they are also coming after your children!!!”

    Shame on you, Fox 5 San Diego.

  6. Tooj Says:

    “Either way, the added “celebrity” of television won’t help a single biker, justice or not. There’s another label we need. Thanks, Discovery Channel.”

    Said this earlier and it bears repeating. THIS (guilty or not) is why one should be extremely careful with the club they prospect and also for the club to learn to be more careful.

    Being the biggest doesn’t necessarily mean being the best. There’s a reason some keep their numbers low, there aren’t enough quality folk you can trust to keep it together. Even then, many get caught up in the Prisoner’s Dilemma.

  7. Base Says:

    Thanks for the update Ol’LadyRider,,,

    It would be a grand thing indeed if the “news” would just stick to the facts and then as you said ended with some sort of pro-active point about victims rights, advocacy etc…

    But where is the sesationalism in that?

    Good point Tooj,,,quality over quantity. With all the “shake & bake” clubs popping up in my area. It’s obvious others are not following your sound advice. Some of thoes people are really playing the role & conflicting with the older established clubs…..

    Talking to a couple officers from a long time club, it’s not so much that they are starting up, it’s more the way they are going about it.

    Ride safe,,,

  8. SDRider Says:

    I’ve been able to finally find it on all the local news websites now. It’s interesting that a couple of them, posted similar

    “The case against a reality TV star accused of committing a lewd act on an underage female relative remains under review, prosecutors said Wednesday.

    Thomas Quinn, 43, was booked into San Diego Central Jail on Aug. 28, posted bail, and was given a court date for arraignment Wednesday. Prosecutors continue to mull over whether charges will be filed, said Tanya Sierra of the District Attorney’s Office.”

    Makes me wonder if they’ve really got anything or not. That was posted the morning of the hearing, so you’d think the mulling part would be over but I guess not. Either someone jumped the gun in the arrest or they’re running on hear-say and scrambling to do their jobs.

    something don’t smell right. I’m not sure what it is, who it is, or why, but something with this whole thing stinks.

    The purpose of the “News” is to sell toothpaste.

  10. Tooj Says:

    I’ll ride alone before I ride with a bunch of “P brought in his crew” assholes that think they are deserving of that which they didn’t earn.

    Watch the clip where Tommy Boy tells his girl to get back inside. Talke a good look at her especially.

    I’m seeing Stockholm Syndrome all over it. I’ll ‘fess. I spent six years of my life after the service working with teenage male sex offenders and their families. THAT was a classic clip.

    The “daddy” is guilty as fucking sin, and just wait until the ex’s kids start speaking up. This isn’t TV sensationalism; this is real life with TV getting in the way. Tommy is a bitch ass punk anyway you split it.

  11. pretjah Says:


    the “witness” could be having cold feet, which is very understandable being a kid who’s been abused by someone like this alleges.

    the prosecuters realize there is no case with out the testimony of a witness in most molestation cases. so it’s better to not press charges and go forward with a trial if the witness isn’t sure they will testify at this point.

  12. Ol'LadyRider Says:

    While I am patiently waiting for several messages to magically result in returned calls, I’ve been surfing a bit and found this comment. This person sounds a bit more informed than most (but who really knows),

    ” Slight update on this. Stepdaughter was 10 years old at the alleged time of this event.

    It is NOT the daughter of his current wife who works for SDPD.

    It is the daughter of his ex-wife.

    I understand they’ve been in a pretty contentious battle for custody of children (different children than the alleged victim, she is a step-daughter)

    SD District Attorney’s office still has not officially charged and there is some debate within that office if they are going to charge him. By that, I would take it that the evidence against is pretty thin. It may be a case of “crying wolf” from the ex-wife or one of her family members.”

  13. Drifter Says:

    Sorry for your loss BTB, Condolences to his loved ones.

    With Honor to his Service, Respect and Godspeed to Butch VNVMC….


  14. Arctic Says:

    I also have to agree with BigV. It doesn’t take much searching online to find dozens of cases of “celebrities” and common folk being wrongly accused and convicted of crimes ranging from rape to child molesting only to have the accuser come clean some years later. Epscially if there is a scorned woman involved. I’ll refrain from judging this cat and hope that justice prevails weather he be guilty or inocent. The sad thing is that because so many women are so quick to use this tactic to fuck over a guy it instantly creates doubt when a woman who actually is a victim of this type of crime tries to get help or prosecute. It’s also concerning how many people on here and in general are quick to condem a person with no access to the facts. I’m assuming non of the commentorS on here have any inside info on this case but many are ready to string the guy up by his nuts.

    LA sheriff’s deputy gets 90 days jail in sex case

    The Associated Press
    Saturday, Sep. 15, 2012 | 09:19 AM

    LOS ANGELES — A suspended Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputy has been sentenced to 90 days in jail for having sexual relations with a teenage girl.

    The district attorney’s office said Friday that 46-year-old Kenneth Alexander was also ordered to undergo 52 weeks of sex offender counseling as part of a five-year supervised probation sentence.

    Alexander pleaded no contest in August to a one sex-related charge stemming from contact with a girl over a five-month period in 2010 and 2011. The girl was 15 and 16 years-old at the time.

    Alexander was assigned to the Marina del Rey sheriff’s station.

  16. One of Skinheads Crew Says:

    As a retired 1% from Syd, Australia now living O/seas I thought I’d add a bit to the story of false allegations.

    This is a true story & involved a mate of mine’s girl friend & her family.

    The family is well known in the TV business & the Dad who was accused or the most heinous crimes to nearly all his kids is famous for a kids song he wrote a long time ago which is played about 30 odd countries, every day of the year & earn him all kinds of dough from the royalties.

  17. One of Skinheads Crew Says:

    One of the daughters of the bloke who wrote the song got pinched leaving the Mum’s house with the VCR & yes it was a while ago that this happened.

    During the late 1980’s & up to the late 1990’s there were these, as I call them, invented memory cases & they were always nearly impossible to get out of.

    The accusers complete inability to recall anything about any kind of event served as even further proof of the accused guilt.

    Things like “body memories” were taken as proof positive could go a long way to getting you some serious time in 1 of Her Majesty’s Go Slows.

    And yes Australia is still a colony of the UK & the Queen the head of state, not mine but most people’s head of state.

    My ex, me, my mate & his girlfriend were up in Kings Cross having brekkie in Victoria St as we often did on weekends.

    I was already off side with both my mate & his girl because I just didn’t buy it. Her sister was a nasty junkie working on William St & it’s the arse end for most people.

    From there they die or get clean & that’s about it.

    The sister claimed that the reason she took the VCR from her Mum was because she was “an incest survivor” ???

    Then she got some shitty shrink who was so low that she did house calls & in Oz it’s all piad for by our Obamacare, which we love & will always love.

    The arse ender Shrink thinks it’s great as she’s got no real customers & next thing she’s got the 10 kids of the songwriter all signing the chits every few days as they work shop all the terrible stuff that none of them can even remember.

    I ended up having a complete falling out with my mate & his ex over this & knew in my hart this was a grab for cash only.

    My mates girl was only about 2 years old when the song writing dad split from her mum.

    How could she know any of this stuff & btw the junkie sister had be able to fit satanic rituals, human sacrifice etc, etc into the story by now.

    While we were having brekkie my mates girl just starts up doing an “air head job” which looks like it sounds …. gob open head going back & forth like a champion …..

    My ex heads for the dunny, locks the door & won’t let me in so I’m left looking like an idiot & checking out the cakes in the window.

    My mates sitting there like a real dill & “there, thereing” the GF while she does this shit for about 5 mins ……

    The poor old Dad gets a vist in the UK where he’d moved to but some sort of family delegation & not only to they try to destroy his new marriage but they go to his kids school & his kid from the new marriage gets thrown into foster care by the principle, for his own good.

    Turns out later that the kid was gang raped every night he was there & his life has been all but destroyed by it.

    When the UK legal system refuses to entertain their quite unbelievable story & better still tell them they won’t get a penny of his around $150,000 USD royalties the whole scam starts to run out of steam.

    I recently connected to my old mates girl on facebook & a few months later saw a pic of her & her dad.

    I couldn’t not ask her about it & yes he’s forgiven all of the lying, grubby, nasty bastards that nearly put him away forever.

    He’s a good bloke apparently unlike his rotten kids.

    Mind you her fought tooth & nail to clear his name & it took a long time & lots of money.

    These days of course the invented memories are in the shit can of history & this was just something that came back to me while reading your page.

    Lastly, I really was in a 1% club & the LD’s wouldn’t have fared very well in Oz.

    People like that I don’t have any respect for & we don’t allow much of it in Oz.

    There’s a few non 1% that are tolerated like the Viet Nam Veterans Club (who stole their patch from a movie called Stone & don’t start up about it with me, everyone told them that 2 years after the movie came out was a bad time to say that they’d invented the patch), some club for old people & a couple of God botherer clubs.

    I’m 56 & still ride a bike every day.

  18. Ms. Wood Says:

    Those clowns knew from the get go that Carla was a cop, they lied to the COC when they first got started. The skull and cross bones patch they wear represents how many times they’ve been divorced and used to be a requirement to join the club, it’s embarrassing.

  19. Stevo Says:

    Any news on this story Rebel?

  20. Tony Says:

    Reality TV has had a tough couple weeks. Last week it was Mark Balelo from Storage Wars who got busted for possession of Meth, and while awaiting his first court appearance, pulled into his shop garage and committed suicide via carbon monoxide. Good luck in prison for Gypsy in prison if he gets convicted. He’ll be up against the bikers, Arian Nation, and other white power gangs that will be DROOLING to get their hands on him. No one will take him in, so I guess HE’LL be “FELATING” the WHOLE joint just as he “ALLEDGADLY” made his step-daughter to do, and I don’t think the guards will be paying much attention! If he’s innocent, hopefully justice prevails, and likewise if he’s guilty. Hopefully, if he’s guilty, he goes in, and IF he survives to get out, comes out a wide receiver!

  21. crazy8 Says:

    Rumor has it Gypsum had a tab on his cut that read, “Hey, she was only 15, but she had the ass of an 11 year old”. Sick fuck. (allegedly)

  29. Phuquehed Says:

    Another illiterate fucktard (that’s you Brandon, in case those words were too big for you) babbling inanely about shit he has no clue about other than an article once every few years, so, being the moron he is he bases his knowledge of real bikers on nothing more than a newsclip he read once somewhere.

    Brandon – learn to read and write. Next, pull the dicks of those faggot *FAKE* clubs – sin mob and lapping dildo’s – out of your mouth…your mommy is wondering why all those guys are always spending the night at the house.

    Fucking idiot.
