My problem is not this arrest but the law enforcement stereotype that any biker with a patch on his/her back is an "outlaw". 99% of these groups are truly clubs, and probably raise more money for Toys for Tots and other charities than any other type group in the country. Trust me, the stereotype does exist and it's simply wrong.

True there are a few outlaw biker groups throughout, but there are more down to earth motorcycle groups who do the community a lot of good.
These groups also wear patches or as you wil " Colors " and to are hasseled by the local police for no other reason than they are wearing a club patch on their backs.
Just who ever really put the label " Outlaw's " on all motorcycle clubs!

listen i ride and i dont need a patch or colors on my bike to ride with my friends. If history has shown us that some "biker clubs" are breaking the law then just dont do the crap that brings the cops to your bike. If a patch means that much then guess what you are going to get pulled over. I know this might be hard to understand but some of the biker "clubs" sell guns,drugs and have been known to kill people. So if the cops have to do there job then they are going to use a large blanket to get the job done and save lives and there own. Common sence. And if you don't like the cop doing there job then dont call them when you need help.

If you wear a leather Jacket have long hair, few tattoos. God for bid you ride a bike, your getting sterotyped by the law and almost every other person thinks bikers are trash' to bad society like this.

I went to Duluth Mn. Gordons Jewelers, where I have bought over the years lots of stuff, I drove my bike up there with leather jacket & chaps. I was standing at the counter waiting my turn.when my turn came they happend to leave me standing as they started to wait on other people after four people twenty minutes later I yelled at the women at the counter asked for the manager! she came over I told her what was going on that i was being discrimated against. I took out my Gordons credit card crumptled it, called closed account.

Now you know what it's like to be stopped by the police just because your Black.

Just imagine yourself a Black person driving a nice car going (cause you can afford it) to see your friend in Greenfield Hill. A cop sees you and pulls you over,here comes the rest of the Ffld P.D.,they think they have something.

The your friend shows up and tell the cops what you just told them why you were in Greenfield Hill. Boy don't they all look foolish.

Why do I know this? Cause it happened to me.

Don't like it much do ya? Neither did I.

Now that I think about it, I think it was the Diablos. They did get busted a few years back.

Man, I haven't heard that name in years, but Cadillac Jack indeed. He was convicted years ago for trying to set up a hit on a cop.

I'm not sure. I never met his kid. I didn't start hanging around the Waterbury/Meridan area until 1990. They were some wild times.

In Meriden there are a few outlaw motorcycle clubs. There are a bunch of scumbags on crotch rockets called THUG RIDERS and STREET SOLDJERZ. These guys try to intimidate people with thier image. They seem to think leather vests make them tough. The reality is they look like a bunch of QUEERS with all their matching leather vests and neon lights all over their perfectly polished bikes.Really, what a bunch of fags.

If you wear a shirt that says "bad mother fu#$@er" you better be one, and you better be ready to get called on it. If you ride with colors, then expect to get stopped for it. If your legit, then you have nothing to worry about. If your crying about it then your one of two things....a criminal or a poser. Dry your eyes and get over it. I see these clubs riding around with names like "the undertakers" and the "Bad Ass White Boyz". Im not saying these are bad clubs or 1% clubs, but when you flying colors like that dont cry on my shoulder when you get stopped.
