Mongols Trial Nears Climax

Stories usually get told beginning with the middle. The middle of this one was early Friday afternoon, about two-thirds of the way through my cross-examination by Steven Welk. Welk is the Chief of the Forfeiture Section of U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Central District of California. The judge in this case, United States versus Mongol […]

The Vago Won

Rudy Zuñiga, a 47-year-old candidate for the Upland, California City Council, described by Upland Police Chief Darren Goodman as a “documented” member of the Vagos Motorcycle Club won his election last Tuesday. Before the election, Goodman had tried to smear Zuñiga as a “criminal.” “Vagos are an outlaw motorcycle gang that refer to themselves (sic) […]

Veteranos

Two, acclaimed veterans of the perilous crusade against the motorcycle club menace testified yesterday in federal court in Santa Ana, California in the Mongol Nation RICO trial. The United States Department of Justice wants to prove that an unincorporated association called “Mongol Nation,” comprising all the patched, or fully patched as prosecutors say frequently, members, […]

Mongols Prosecution Just Yesterday

Two of the undercover ATF agents who “infiltrated” the Mongols Motorcycle Club from about June 2005 until October 2008 testified yesterday at the big, not very newsworthy racketeering trial in Orange County California. The trial is tedious for anyone to witness so it must be tedious for the jurors chained to their seats day after […]

Mongols Prosecution Continues

The two federal prosecutors in the Mongol Nation RICO trial – Christopher Brunwin and Steven R. Welk – looked like failures again today. The two keep promising more than they can deliver. Last week, during opening arguments, they promised to show the jury video of a Mongol stabbing a guy in the face. This morning […]

Mongols Nation Trial Begins

A shiny new jury heard opening arguments and testimony in the often delayed United States versus Mongol Nation trial today in the Ronald Reagan Federal Building and United States Courthouse in Santa Ana, California about 35 hellish freeway miles south of Los Angeles. A no-nonsense federal district judge, a former Vietnam Marine officer, David O. […]

Mongol Nation Pre-Trial

There is a hearing today before the Mongol Nation trial is scheduled to start tomorrow. Briefly stated, the government alleges that the Mongols Nation, an unincorporated association is guilty of various criminal acts performed on behalf of the Mongols Motorcycle Club. That wording probably seems askew to most readers because the law itself is twisted. […]

Mayor Backs Undercover Drunks

Yesterday, Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto defended the four, drunk Pittsburgh cops who harassed, pepper sprayed, shocked and beat four members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club in Kopy’s Bar on October 12. The incident appears to have been an assertion of police dominance over non-police. In order to punctuate that dominance, the cops contrived a cover […]

Pittsburgh News Cycle Turning

It wasn’t supposed to be like this. Oh sure, the washed-up catalog models who read the news on Pittsburgh TV are still saying “Pagans motorcycle gang” and “undercover detectives” but the news cycle continues to grind on whether those local celebrities comprehend the pages other people give them to read or not. The story was […]

Feds To Protect Undercover Drunks

Let no one doubt that the members of the Pittsburgh Police Department’s elite Undercover Drunk Unit who insulted, mugged and falsely arrested four members of the Pagans Motorcycle Club in Kopy’s Bar on October 12 have already gotten away with it. That is why preliminary hearings for Frank Deluca, Michael Zokaites, Erik Heitzenrater and Bruce […]

Pittsburgh Kops Gone Wild

From the beginning, it has been obvious what happened in Kopy’s Bar in Pittsburgh in the early morning hours of October 12. Four off duty Pittsburgh cops went to the dive bar to get drunk. Three of the cops have remained anonymous. An alleged detective named Brian Burgunder actually started the fight when he leaned […]
