Federal prosecutors are alleging that a Hell’s Angels member threatened a witness — through a Facebook page “poke.”

The allegations, which run counter to the motorcycle club’s “tough-guy” image, were challenged this morning by a federal judge. Beforehand, however, the courtroom became an open forum in which lawyers, a probation officer, a court reporter, and, yes, even a newspaper reporter were asked by the judge for insight into how Facebook privacy settings work.(Only a few — newspaper reporter excluded — could provide answers.)

Today, a federal prosecutor asked that bail be revoked for Richard “Eric” Riedman, who authorities allege is a member of the Hell’s Angels. Riedman is awaiting trial on allegations that he and others stole scrap metal from a CSX railroad yard. An earlier trial on the charges ended up with a hung jury.

Riedman also was recently charged in connection with an alleged baseball bat beating by an Angel’s member of a man in a Lyell Avenue bar. Federal authorities allege that Riedman and others help set up and cover up the crime in the 2006 beating. Riedman faces a bail hearing in that case tomorrow.

At today’s hearing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Brett Harvey contended that Riedman’s bail should be revoked in the scrap metal case because he allegedly “poked” a cooperating witness — Christopher Monfort — through Facebook. That “poke”— a largely meaningless Facebook communication method — came from the Facebook page of “Erock Shock,” which turned out to be Riedman’s.

On the page were earlier postings by Riedman stating “Retribution,” a video of Riedman playing a guitar, and a photo of a tattoo stating “WAR,” which prosecutors say is a Rochester chapter Hell’s Angel acronym for “We’re Always Right.”

In court today, Riedman’s attorney, Michael Tallon, said “Retribution” is a name of both a band that Riedman likes and a song they perform.

Authorities allege that Riedman was ordered not to have contact with Monfort, who testified for almost nine days in the earlier scrap metal trial. They also allege that the Facebook “poke” could be the basis of a criminal charge of tampering with a witness.

U.S. District Judge Charles Siragusa questioned today why prosecutors didn’t criminally charge Riedman if they believed they had sufficient proof he had tried to intimidate a witness. Harvey said prosecutors might not have enough evidence to prove guilt because Riedman’s computer is now being monitored after being seized.

Harvey acknowledged,“This isn’t a straightforward … threat.”

Siragusa refused to detain Riedman, who is jailed for now on the other charge, and asked prosecutors to send more information after the computer is analyzed.

I think if your a man and you let a Hells angel poke you you get a T shirt that says 81.

internet harrassement is a real problem and should be dealt with.

If you took the computers away from all the USA hells angels they would probably end the club .

I am sure all those men that support hells angels and wear 81 shirts to show they spent money on a hells angel get poked by hells angels all the time. I would bet That’s probably why those men pay for the 81 shirts and can holders can openers or what ever.

Poking men probably comes natural for a USA Hells angels. Did he mean any harm ? I guess it depends on which man he is poking for what ever reason. I would not really want to be in court to hear why hells angels poke men and I sure don't wont to see a demonstration of a hells angel poking a man over a computer in the court room.

I have been harassed and threatened on line .My family has been harassed and threatened online. My Family and I have been Libeled or slandered online.

I have never had a problem online until I started to speak up about how hells angels in the USA are wrong for supporting their child porn convict leader Dave Burgess and USA Hells angels are wrong for having so many USA hells angel members year after year decade after decade in the news for harming raping molesting and murdering women and children.

I cannot even use my family name for business purposes anymore since all these freaks started using my name and making crazy statements taking my pictures off google etc.

I think Google search engines and other online services should be held responsible and sued hard . I think everyone caught taking someone’s identity pictures using their name etc should be punished harsh fined and jailed etc.

Only a low life scumbag like some hells angels I know would use another man or women’s identity. I think
It boils down to jealousy . I am hoping we will see punks in computer gangs like the USA hells angels ricoed in the future .

Why do the punk chicken head beak bobbing hells angel freaks have so many web sites ?

I think because in real life the USA hells angels are so pathetic and goofy looking that they scare no one..Online these pathetic freaks can create a tough image . I think chuck Zito is a perfect example of a punk with a fake image .

If a hells angel is not man enough to face me and if he has nothing true bad about me to say or type then I believe the hells angel should keep his beak closed and his chicken feet off the key board.

That’s just how I feel about that.

That’s all I got to say about that until I say something else

Computer threats and stalking are just as serious as real threats and if I find who does it to me and my loved ones I will go after them before they harm me or someone I love.

I don't usually read the garbage some people like YOU write (But I made an exception this time only) because you don't have any idea how to compose a sentence and don't use the correct punctuation and can't spell to save your stupid meager life.. When you become smarter than the average bear, maybe I'll read the hate and BS that you spew out of your pie hole. You'd be shaking in your shitfilled BOOTS if an HA were standing beside you at anytime in your miserable life!!

The USA hells angels obsession with Mike Yevtuck belies a certain unnatural fixation.
The hells angels all want to be tough and hot looking like Mike Yevtuck but the hells angels could never have the Body because they are to lazy and they will never have the heart to stand for what is rightous.

hells angels wanted to be Mike yevtuck but they were not born with the heart of a lion instead they were born with hearts of weasles, wood peckers,pigeons ,rats

USa hells angels Pee wee rounded out just a pig . Dave burgess child porn convict leader ,chuck Zito the great pretender, lofranco leader of NJ rat pack , George christie presidental wow talk about crazzy LOL , ray rat foakes etc are just freaks in a flock of freaks

I guess that is why hells angels will alway live in the shadow of Mike Yevtuck .

Mike Yevtuck is real .

Every comment i've ever seen on these posts from an HA have always been either foul language, threatening or angry. When people post their opinion of the HA, they post on here telling the person to watch out or call a name. If this ''club'' is so good and wholesome, why the threats??? To disagree is on thing. To name call and threaten just paints us all a picture of a tough (poser) gang that always denies any criminal or illegal activity. All the HA will tell you they'll kick your ass in one post and then claim to be honest, hard working ... wait for it... caring individuals!!!!! Can't have it both ways hypocrites!!!! Wake up!!!

The nationality doesn't matter. He is trying to say the ''club'' is corrupt. There are members who are into criminal activity all over the country. Everyone knows it. It's no secret. Hello.
