Cc riders 2014

Over the July 4 weekend, fights, motorcycle accidents, and other acts of drunken hooliganism resulted in nearly 50 arrests and 60 injuries.Over 4,000 motorcycle enthusiasts, as well as a dozen motorcycle clubs, including the Booze Fighters, the Top Hatters, and the Pissed of Bastards of Bloomington, packed the Bolado racetrack near the city’s outskirts.One of the Outlaws under indictment is Jack Rosga, also known as “Milwaukee Jack,” the purported national leader of the Outlaws MC.The outlaw motorcycle idiom is a derivative of a July 4, 1947 Gypsy Tour motorcycle event held in Hollister, California.The HAs have chapters in Minnesota, Illinois, and Michigan — forming a virtual ring around Wisconsin.It was events in the town’s center, however, that forever etched the surly image of bad boy bikers in the minds of mainstream society.In the late 1990s, the federal government indicted and later obtained convictions of several members from the Outlaws Wisconsin chapters.In response to the media attention, the secretary of the AMA, Lin Kuchler, said, “The disreputable cyclists were possibly one percent of the total number of motorcyclists, only one percent are hoodlums and troublemakers.” Outlaw bikers quickly seized on the label and, to this day, proudly don “1%” patches and tattoos. The charges alleged include acts of kidnapping, attempt murder, drug dealing, assault, and illegal gambling.Within the law enforcement community, word spread that the HAs planned to open a Wisconsin chapter. Before long, troubles between the Outlaws and the Hells Angels drew-in members of a non-one percent motorcycle club, the Madison based Capitol City (CC) Riders.In 2003, two residents of Madison became patch holders of the Rockford chapter of the Hells Angels.Sponsored by the American Motorcycle Association (AMA), the number of bikers in attendance — almost the equivalent of Hollister’s population at the time — overwhelmed authorities.The Hells Angels are a club indigenous to California spun-off from the Pissed-off Bastards of Bloomington, an MC that was present during the Hollister fiasco.The Banditos, the Pagens, the Mongols and, of course, the Hells Angels (HAs)—the largest one-percent club in the world—round out these groups.

The Outlaws consider themselves a motorcycle club, although many within law enforcement circles believe—since they sport colors, have bylaws, and maintain a hierarchy—this group is an organized crime outfit that meets the federal definition of a criminal enterprise.Soon, photos of intoxicated bikers filled newspapers and appeared in Life Magazine.The Outlaws MC is just one of a handful of large one-percent motorcycle clubs that dominate the global biker landscape.In the past, Outlaws MC leaders from Wisconsin have maintained their prominence within their national organization due to the unwillingness of the Hells Angels to establish a presence in the badger state.The charges stemmed, in part, from at least three homicides.
