Absurdist Justice

It is becoming increasingly obvious that most of the current Vagos case titled USA v. Palafox et al. has simply been made up – like a story about demonic dogs by Stephen King or, maybe more to the point, an absolutely authentic look inside outlaw motorcycle gangs as imagined by Kurt Sutter.

Waco's War Of The Blossoms

The Aztec Empire ran on blood. The Sun rose and set, the rains came and went, the empire brought order out of chaos through the magic of murder, by making people bleed, by making a spectacle of holding men down, cutting open their chests, ripping out their still beating hearts and throwing their lifeless bodies […]
