Cop Club Lawsuit

January 13, 2009

All Posts, News

Five Minneapolis cops, Lieutenant Medaria Arradondo, Lieutenant Donald Harris, Sergeant Charles Adams, Sergeant Dennis Hamilton, and Lieutenant Lee Edwards are suing the City of Minneapolis, the Minneapolis Police Department, and a cop named Timothy Dolan because Dolan and ten other Minneapolis cops belong to a motorcycle gang.

City Heat Motorcycle Club

Dolan and the unnamed cops belong to a gang called the City Heat Motorcycle Club. City Heat wears a three-piece patch. It is one of the so called “Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs” that have repeatedly tried to use the police powers of their patch holders to intimidate other bikers and other clubs.

For example, last August, Ron Smith, a Seattle police union official and a member of the Iron Pigs motorcycle gang shot a member of the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club named Joseph McGuire in the Loud American Roadhouse in Sturgis. The shooting occurred in the course of a fist fight that followed a verbal altercation.

Outlaw Cops

Apparently McGuire had the audacity to ask Smith why the Iron Pigs were allowed to wear their colors in the Roadhouse while the Hells Angels were not. The police were carrying concealed weapons and were released by local police immediately after the incident. Charges were filed against the cops but dropped. The victim, Smith, spent months in hospital and is facing charges of trying to kill the cop who shot him.

Clubs like the Iron Pigs, the Wild Pigs, the Untouchables, the Renegades, the Blue Steel and the club central to the Minneapolis suit, the City Heat clearly intend to be outlaws with police privileges. A few cop clubs, like the Blue Knights Motorcycle Club, are clearly family clubs and so rarely have problems with patch holders.

The Suit

The Minneapolis suit has been filed in United States District Court and alleges that members of the City Heat have “systematically and continuously discriminated… against persons of color;” that the City Heat is an overtly racist club; that the city and police department of Minneapolis have tolerated membership in the club; and that all of that has created a racist and hostile work place environment for black and Hispanic cops.

    Takes a special (in) breed of green-suited pig farmer to be a hack. As far as ” i walk into a unit every day with 60 guys no gun…” all I can say is bullshit. Ain’t a Yard in the country, Fed or state, where you’ll see a lone hack mix in with a group of humans.


  3. The Doctor Says:

    “All along the watch tower….”
    OK, so bull walks into a unit of 60. Not without security cams and guns stationed nearby. You just made yourself seem even more petty and arrogant, not to mention full of shit!
    I have had plenty of exposure to both 1%er clubs/members and LE ‘clubs’.
    To run with the former, you’d better have balls and know respect – both how to earn it and how to show it. If you run with the latter, most likely your comprehension of respect is licking the right brown-round so you can advance your career. Oh, I know that of which I speak. Never have I experienced so poor an example than that of a cop’s. Brotherhood…Ha! You pricks have less integrity than Gollum from Lord of the Rings. As I alluded to previously, I have first hand experience with people from both sides of this discussion. You won’t see a cop mouth off without his gun, bill and/or badge…usually has a flunky with him, too. Intimidating the weak is their preferred M.O.
    With a 1%er, you’ll know where you stand. They won’t flip/flop (change tactics) when negotiating like weasel LEO’s.
    I’ve had a beat down from a cop while already bound and restrained – power tripping punk. My conclusion is that LE reps are mostly birds of a feather. They get off on intimidating anyone who questions them – not necessarily their authority – could be as simple as asking, “What are you here for?” Further, their so called brotherhood is really a back-stabbing, butt-licking, do-unto-others-before-they-do-unto-me organization of brainwashed dolts who lack problem solving skills and can’t think their way through simple challenges. Intimidate, humiliate, castigate.
    No, I’m not a clubber. No, I’m not an LEO. I am a corporate and entrepreneurial professional. I’ve served both my community and mankind.
    Were I to choose to join one of the two types of club, I’d go with a 1%er because they uphold the true vision of their existence….not like cops who are supposed to uphold the law and protect citizens but do the exact opposite when they think they’ll get away with it. Imagine, acting like clubbers ao they can live both lifestyles. Never have I witnessed so pathetic a display of insecurity and blatant hypocrisy.

    This looks like an old thread, but one that strikes at the core of both sides. I would offer that as a LEO I personally don’t trust LEOs that are in cop MCs. I know other LEOs will find that offensive, but that’s how it is. There is life outside of law enforcement and you don’t have to surround yourselves with other cops while off duty. Join a non 1% club, or a civic club, or just hang out with your buddies and tie a few on. But to start your own MC and try to be cops while doing it is, I’m sorry, pathetic. You might get a little respect if you didn’t identify yourselves as cops or pull out the “I’m a cop” mentality when you get into a scrape. If you want to live a MC culture life then abide by the same rules everyone else follows, you know? Some people are gonna hate LEOs no matter what, but at least try to garner some respect. Just my worthless 2¢.

    OOOHHHH, the “GOOD COP, BAD COP” ploy! FUCK YA SAM!!!! Ya’ll have proved
    you are brain-damaged-bullied-beaten-lost children-syndrome FUCKWADS on

  6. RtC Says:

    Phuquehed, I hadn’t seen this thread till “Sam” posted the good cop post,
    that brought it to the fore-front of the comments section. Reminded me of a good friend that is on some fed videos, from years ago,without sound, but you can read his lips. “I don’t care how often/much you ask! I WON’T LET YOU SUCK MY DICK!” BBAAWWAAAHHHAAAAAA AS he was being led away in cuffs, no less.
    LOVE my 1% friends!They’s Welcome in my house anytime. My O’L had never been around bikers till she met me. Informed local cops”I’ve never felt safer,than when I was surrounded by at least 1000 1%ers!”
    BTW Phuquehed, find my Eaddy on here(easiest on old Dialogical Saloon,
    towards the bottom of the comments & E me, man! You’ll be glad ya did.)

  7. Sam Says:

    Thank you for the eloquent response, RtC. You have certainly schooled me. I suspect, though, that you are not a LEO in a cop MC (whom I was addressing). I really do appreciate that you actually took the time to even read my post let alone respond to it. I shall write this event down in my diary as a special day indeed. I shall let you return to torturing puppies or whatever it is you do in your spare time, sir.

    dear sheep; regarding “The difference is the cop clubs don’t sell drugs, stolen motorcycle/parts, or kill people without legal cause. I suppose that you believe everything you see about police on tv as well. Like shooting the gun out of the bad guys hands ect..” cops do however kidnap perfect strangers: confiscate everything these strangers own up and AND including motorcycles: and kill strangers, though granted with legal cause which means in real human language “you can kill people and not be punished, unlike with non cops who kill illegally.” so in other words cops are actually worse than the criminals who commit the acts you claim cops dont do because they are convinced what they are doing is not wrong. criminals on the other hand for the most part admit to themselves that they doing something wrong. which stealing and killing basically is. regarding selling drugs: only a cop would consider voluntary trade – the foundation of american free enterprise – something bad. because cops have what thomas aquinas calls “a wrong conscience.” which means basically they have reversed right and wrong in their own corrupt, evil, fucked -up souls and basically dont know the difference. but no one has EVER said cops are intelligent. so…..

  9. Road Whore Says:

    @ Sam:

    Your flippant and inflammatory rejoinder to RtC was:

    “I shall let you return to torturing puppies…”

    I believe, that if you will Google “cops shooting dogs,” that you will discover that torturing puppies is the purview of the police.

    There’s even a Facebook page:

    You LEO types aren’t satisfied with bullying the innocent public, you have to shoot and kill dogs that aren’t a threat either.

    I’ll let you get back to cleaning your service pistol so that you can go out and shoot some more dogs, sir.

  10. Tooj Says:

    Um Sam? Folks are saying they don’t care what a cop thinks even if he is addressing other cops or thinks he is “taking one for the good guys”, dig?

    And civilized writing as compared to RtC’s colorful example, does not necessarily make what you just did “civilized”. It does, however, make you yet another tool who identifies as a cop.

  11. jj solari Says:

    dear senyore sheep; first of all my congrats to your parents on your name. they obviously had your number. now: regarding your remark— “The difference is the cop clubs don’t sell drugs, stolen motorcycle/parts, or kill people without legal cause. I suppose that you believe everything you see about police on tv as well. Like shooting the gun out of the bad guys hands ect..” —not selling drugs is not a virtue; it’s just another excuse for a cop to avoid legitimate free enterprise in the open American market and in the time honored American tradition of individual sovereignty. It’s just another excuse to be lazy in other words. also, while cops may not sell stolen motorcycles and parts they do steal them. usually during every arrest. or kidnapping as i prefer to call “arrest.” that they do not sell the bikes or the parts afterwards just reinforces my assertion that cops will avoid actual work at every turn if at all possible. it’s usually true that cops will not kill people they never met unless they are sure that they will not be punished for it, or in other words, they will make every effort to kill strangers legally, which is what legally means: “wont be punished for it.” you radiate via your words and thought process a remarkable measure of obtuseness and distance from reality. it’s almost sociopathic. are you a police officer yourself, sir?

  12. Bill Says:

    I hear Eric Holder wants to outlaw cop clubs. Something about an ‘unsavory image’, not sufficiently respectful of this country’s Islamic ideals.

  13. RtC Says:

    @ Sam; I just might have a liable/libelous suit here! I happen to be a
    member of the NASPCA(fer you,you clueless fuck, that’s the NATIONAL American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty of Animals)There are folk here that CAN find out who you are, and to make statements of this nature towards someone you DON’T know is inflammatory! I take heart-felt offense at your statement that I would ever hurt/torture puppies! I might, in fact,lose nights of sleep over your accusation! As a matter of fact, I think I’m going to ask for help in finding out just who the fuck you are!!! AND WHERE THE FUCK YOU’RE AT!!! YOU, fuckwadSAM, are nothing but a waste of skin, to even suggest such a thing! SICK MOTHERFUCKER! I have 3 rescued dogs that would gnaw you to a shitpile, you FUCK! Come to my house & say that shit to MY FACE you fuck!!! I live in Kansas, douche. Just ask any PH where REDWOLF the CONCHOMAN LIVES you shitstain!
    FUCK ALL PIGS! They are less than human.
    RESPECTS to the REAL

  14. Phuquehed Says:

    Tear him a new one, RtC! Fuck that useless waste of our good air.

    By the way, check your e-mail. I sent a reply and need to know what you think about what I did to your flyer.

  15. RtC Says:

    WILL DO!

  16. Base Says:

    Most cops are nothing more than paid henchmen.

    Psychopath’s on a very long loose leash.

    Here is a message to all cops/LE/FED/Local all of you.

    You don’t like being called a douche bag and belonging to one of the most hated occupations out there. Do something about it!

    Next time you see 6 or 7 of your fellow douche bags piled on a homeless person beating the shit out of him. STOP IT!

    Next time you see one of your fellow douche bags going for his gun to shot someone’s dog because you have the dogs owner in cuffs and the dog is doing what comes natural protecting his owner. STOP THEM!

    Next time you and your fellow douche bags are planning on doing a no knock warrant arrest on some kid for credit card fraud living in his elderly parents or grand parents house. STOP IT!

    Put someone on the house and pick them up when they go to the store!

    You want people to stop thinking your a bunch of DOUCHE BAGS?


    It really is that simple.

    dear USMC 0311: this is a real question; how can you go from defending americans – which if you were in persia in combat then thats what you were doing, and as far as i am concerned, cause fighting islam is about the most noble thing a human being can do – not only since 9-11 but since 500 AD when this abomination called a religion began….how do you go from defending americans….to arresting them? how do you do that without having to go through a rigorous restructuring of your brain cells?

  20. Paladin Says:

    jj solari,

    If for some reason UMSC 0311 doesn’t reply and you’re truly interested in how something like this can happen, Rebel can provide you with my contact information.


  21. Styx Says:

    Base said it all for all of you. He exemplifies what an uneducated person is without a stitch of analytical thought. Totally clouded by ignorance and the hatred of a VOCATION. Douchenozzle.

  22. WARTHOG Says:


    How profound and insightful.

    Fuckin’ douche bag!



  23. Parsifal Says:

    styx? – suck a bone! – Base got it right, cop sucker.

  24. Base Says:


    Truth hurts?

    Analyze this:

    I do not hate anyone, especially for their chosen vocation. But I do have a dislike for, douche bags, trolls, back stabbers, liars, you know low lives!

    I could care less what occupation or associations they choose!

    Here is another example: You bust in here, make an attack, not an argument. So what happens, people fight back.

    See act like a troll, get treated like a troll!

    So what level of education do you need to understand that simple concept?

  25. Phuquehed Says:

    Styx the fucking pig that whines as much as s/he/it just did simply means Base was right on the money and hurt Styx’s widdle feewings.

    Whine some more Styx, you fucktard, about how you don’t measure up to being a true, honest cop.

  26. RtC Says:

    Phuquehed, I think he/she/it is a WANNABE! Didn’t seem that he/sheit is low
    enough in the IQ level. It’s said that they won’t take anybody over 85 I.Q.,
    because they are afraid that person will think before shooting! Styx evidentely
    scored 86!

  27. John K Says:

    Best laugh I’ve had in a long time reading about the LEMCs and 1 percenters going back and forth on each other about who the little bitches might be. Too funny these so called brotherhoods.

  28. Jackie Treehorn Says:

    @ Styx
    “Hatred of a vocation” Its not about vocation you fucking idiot. Being a law officer was once a noble profession. No longer and never will be again. Badge holders are bullies, liars, thueves, murderesDont you Are you really that delisional

    Didnt finish my rant. But you get the point.
