They say the club that's referred to is the saddle tramps. However, its not been mentioned if this Melvin guy was a member of this club or not. I do not believe that conclusions should be jumped to when the media has been known to blow certain details out of proportion. I'm not saying to rule it out. I'm just saying until all the facts have been given, keep an open mind. Here's one of my theories (JUST A THEORY) that I've been tossing around in my head: Melvin was either a member or an associate who was having an affair with the wife of Sammy. I think there was possibly some dirty dealings with drugs and then you add in an affair and that leaves you with the recipe for disaster. I believe this is more personal than club related. I also believe the witnesses that were there may have been one or two members of the club. Who knows. What a sad event. I think whoever was involved in this senseless malicious murder should receive the highest sentence punishable by law up to the death penalty.

I think the wife has something to do with this. In fact I think she created the environment.

Alot of people automatically assume that "Motorcycle Gangs" are all bad people. You cant judge a book by its cover. just because they wear t=shirts and Leather, and choose to have beards that they are all bad people. That just pisses me off at the level of stupidity that are in so many people.
We have a group of motorcycle riders that are retired police officers. Do they get the same level of stupidity from these same "POST COMMENTS" No.
Alot of these "GANGS" LOL are good men that do alot of good for out city, county and state by the being comunity involved in many forms.
These "Gangs" raise alot of money for alot of good causes.
Don't judge the entire riding community, much less the "Gang" LOL he may or may not ride with.
This is sad enough, but this man chose to do what he done, and in the Courts, a jury of 12 will choose his future.
When will people stop judging people on how they look, or who they may know.
"Guilty by Association" has ruined alot of lies, many due to GOSSIP

Yes, It's called RICO and if you look like a Meth biker your going to be messed with! So get over it. ALSO, It's a jury of 11 with an alternative. In case a juror gets sick or shot by the gang the trial will still be held.

What is RICO for you Neophytes?

Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, commonly referred to as the RICO Act or simply RICO, is a United States federal law that provides for extended criminal penalties and a civil cause of action for acts performed as part of an ongoing criminal organization. The RICO Act focuses specifically on racketeering, and it allows the leaders of a syndicate to be tried for the crimes which they ordered others to do or assisted them, closing a perceived loophole that allowed someone who told a man to, for example, murder, to be exempt from the trial because he did not actually commit the crime personally.

You must all be fans of Sons of Anarchy.. The real world does not function or act the way it's portrayed on tv. So assuming the worst and that a gang involved or that juror will be killed is ridiculous. And really RICO. Funny none of you so called experts or name sayers have ever even heard of this so called club the Tramps but your quick to throw their name out there like it's some malicious outlaw biker gang that's killing people for no good reason... Fucktards you all need your own special holiday with MORE COW BELLS!
