The jokers are a bunch of meth heads that abuse and neglect their children. Everyone who is from east kennewick knows that. They are an eyesore too. Bunch of beer bellied smelly overgrown mental children riding around reeking of "annie" which smells about like urine. Meanwhile , their children get abused, neglected and live in utterly atrocious conditions. The ones i have known, are half starved and the saddest kids you'll ever meet. Their welfare is not considered by these jokers and the state wont take them away because the jokers will attack the foster families- and that's exactly what a joker kid told me. 3 stayed at my house for months with no one ever coming to meet me. 1 I know, "lived" in a self made shelter by the railroad tracks in Finley, in the dead of winter, by her highschool. 1 drown at 2 rivers and was buried in a second hand dress- the nicest thing that poor child owned. I don't like the KPD, but I DO hope they catch all these "jokers" and promptly place all the children in decent homes.

Gees, how wrong can you be. These guys don't cook meth at all. They deal it. That's how clubs like the Jokers and Angels bring in money. These aren't upstanding citizens folks. They disdain honest citizens and live in their own drug fueled universe. That's where the cash is. Oi Vey their so persicuted and misunderstood. They're a parasitic group of blood suckers on society. Just my 2 cents.

I don't know wlhy the police keep singling out MC Clubs. In the 1970's they tried to use the RICO act to disband the Hells Angels, it did not work. Bikers have always given back to the community, in blood drives, toys for tots, and poker runs to raise money for members of the community that needed medical care for a sick child etc. Use your search engine and see for yourself. When is the last time a youth gang whether they be red or blue, did that!! Leave the MC's alone, just because they use 2 wheels not 4, is no reason to fear them.
O f course your kidding, right. Hells Angels are drug dealers, thieves ,rapists,pimps,murderers,thugs ,etc.etc.and if they take ateddy bear to a kid in the hospital then everyting is OK every one of them should be placed gently in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.

Not meaning any disrespect to any of the above who have posted, especially those tired with the corruption in the system, but I would recommend using a spell check and/or double checking what you have typed. It's trivial to the message you're trying to get out (which is a worthy message of needing to change how the system works), but more often than not, the fact is when people read something with basic spelling mistakes,typos, etc. they are more likely to discount the entire message.
Take my comment for what it's worth. Hopefully at some point enough people will be tired enough of how things are done to cause a real change.
as long as u can understand the message who cares about spelling you square. Nobody is discounting the message and if they do good riddance.

My grandfather was a dedicated member of the Gypsy Jokers mc out of Stockton, ca. R.I.P grandpa. I wear the skull and staff proudly on my right upper arm in his memory. He was a man that made many mistakes in his life but to be accused of being a career criminal is an outrage. I pity those who cant respect the brotherhood of the mc and those who wish to frown upon it. He wasn't the murderer or the drug pushing criminals most like to make bikers out to be, he was the one protecting you from those people. looking over you. keep doing your thing brothers..

Of course I'm being a little light hearted. Obviously you can't take me up on my offer. Some angles don't change no matter how you shift them. And mathematically when it is all said and done it will be dug up right in your own back yard.

I am a member of GJ and I hate to break it to you but we are not about "drugs, prostitution, guns" or whatever else your imagination can rile up. I challenge you to do your own research on actual news. Yes, there are a**hole GJ just like anybody else. Those guys are found and kicked out of the club.

You will see that there have been more convictions from the Seattle Police than GJ. SO why dont you see the police department as a group of murderous, drug pushing, thieving pimps?(Yes, an officer was recently kicked off the force and prosecuted for pimping his own wife on Backpage-Try to find a GJ that has done that!). My club is harassed constantly by cops. We get pulled over, searched, photographed but never arrested. You know why? BECAUSE WE ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING WRONG! We have had clubhouses stormed, houses busted up..you name it.. Still no convictions...no drugs, no meth labs, no sex slaves in the basement. We have sued LEO several times due to THEIR criminal behavior and have won hundreds of thousands of dollars in restitution! Have they ever had grounds to sue us? NEVER! what does that tell you?

Just because a GJ gets busted for something doesn't mean it has ANYTHING to do with the club. Note that GJ kicks members out for:

Aggressive Behavior
Drug Use (Especially needles)
Manufacturing drugs
Sex Offenders are hated!
Assaulting any other member or a member of their own family (yes! domestic violence gets you booted!)

Think of it this way...if we were some sort of organized crime ring...like the mafia...imagine the mafia going around with the name of their 'organization' on their backs along with their rank and locations. Would be kind of stupid..dont you think?

Gone are the days of Outlaw Motorcycle gangs terrorizing people and running drugs/sex/guns. SOns of Anarchy, Gang Land, etc makes good television, but if they were to be honest about MC clubs then no one would watch it because its about supporting something beyond ourselves! Our brothers, our loved ones and our community.
