Arrested for the possession of body armor? Isn't it odd that the bill of rights guarantees us the right to bear arms for self defense, but the state has made wearing something to protect yourself from bullets a crime?

I think the issue is that body armor on a criminal is more likely to be used along with a weapon. Which means it'd be harder to take them down in the case the police ever had to subdue him with force.

The "gentleman arrested in Ct. is a convicted fellon of the worst type---a "SKINNER."

For those that do not know that jargon,this means a child/sex offender.

He is also a dead beat dad--non child support

fellow.

I`m amazed that any "outlaw" gang would be

such sissy boyz as to have a SKINNER among them.

They probably sit around and all watch kiddy porn.How you spell PUNKS ?

Re: POLISHING THE IMAGE OF MOTORCYCLISTS EVERYWHERE

I'm glad to see that MO is doing its best to highlight the activities of the Hell's Angels and Outlaws, given how representative these groups are of the motorcycling community in general.

MO continues to do its part to expose the general public to the violent criminal activity that is the heart and soul of motorcycling.

Thanks, MO.

Two guys took down a bank in (I think) downtown LA. They had body armor and assault rifles. The cops tried to stop them but they shot the sh*t out of the cops. The cops eventually got some assault rifles from a local gun store and managed to take them down.



Ever since then body armor is considered the same as firearms and explosives. Cops get very weary when you have body armor …

The bad guys had full auto Kalashnikov rifles. As for body armor any high powered rifle will put a hole right through it. It was the fault of the L.A. police brass that the officers weren’t properly armed for such an eventuality. The whole point of the second amendment was to keep the people armed with whatever was necessary to pose a counter-weight to the power of government. Outlawing body armor for citizens places them at a disadvantage compared to government troops.

These aren't regular citizens, though. They're criminals. And in this case, apparently the guy was still one. I understand that many get out of jail and don't go back to what they did before, but I think that the issue isn't the fault of the police for not being armed so much as it's the fault of the criminals for wearing the body armor which protected them. The police were in the right, they just didn't have the right weapons for the job and hopefully they do now.



They should have been ready, (blah, blah, blah) but they weren't, and I'm sure that's not the first time that someone hasn't been ready for people to do something illegal. The fact they were smart enough to go get weapons from the gun shops proves they are at least able to understand what was going on; now they probably have them available.

yikes i thought the con code of beating the crap out of sex offenders would have excluded this POS out of the gang...I would like to send of all these child sex offender guys out to a deserted island then have the air force napalm the thing... We had one living across the street from us. My wife found out and notified all the parents with kids. The offenders wife filed a temporary antiharrassment order. At the hearing the judge lectured the offenders wife about Megan's law and the constitution. Her actions actually drew more attention to her husband in the form of the press The gall of some people.. of course the cops failed badly on it they were supposed to notify folks...

Re: POLISHING THE IMAGE OF MOTORCYCLISTS EVERYWHERE

Uh, huh. And the 1-thousand miles of solitude guy doesn't represent motorcyclists? Eh, I think it's easy to focus on the negative and negative posts.. But I think it's time to look at how many good things that MO posts about motorcyclists, and of course motorcycles.

Give me a review every month or two and I don't care what else you put up - I'll find most of it interesting anyways!

Somebody help me out here. I read the article twice, and I don't see anything about children/child sex offender. Just that he was convicted of a sex offense. In some states, a seventeen year old boy with a sixteen year old girl is a sex offense. But it is hardly perverted or "kiddy porn". Do you have other info not in the article?

Wow, you guys sound a little biased or uneducated about the groups. Maybe scared a little?!?



The guy may have taken some 16 or 17 year old "lady" for a ride. Hell, he might have been 18 at the time. I'm sure if he were doing little kids either of these groups would have relieved him of his manhood.



Not defending him or the group, but you guys are jumping off the cliff.
