Pagan’s MC’s Blue Wave Mandate In The West Turns Violent, Pair Of Outlaws Charged With Killing Pagan-Marine In OKL Highway Shooting

December 30, 2021 — The Blue Wave’s move west has its first casualty. On September, 12, Oklahoma Pagan’s Motorcycle Club member Danny Aaron was shot and killed riding his Harley down eastbound Highway 62 near Midwest City. The 33-year old Aaron, a military vet, had a Pagan’s MC prospect with him at the time of his murder.

Two members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, Steve Roberts and Virgil Nelson were charged with first-degree homicide in Aaron’s death earlier this week. The Outlaws MC is the most powerful biker gang in the Midwest and has a foothold in the biker hotbed of Florida.

Aaron served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He was a member of the Pagan’s Oklahoma City chapter.

There had been flare-ups of violence in the Pagan’s war for the West Coast, but until the fall of 2021, never a gangland slaying. The West Coast push began in earnest in 2019, per federal law enforcement records.

Walla Walla, Washington Pagan’s MC members were arrested three months ago for assault. Last winter, shooting broke out at Jaguar’s Gentlemen’s Club in Edinburgh, Texas near San Antonio when the Pagan’s new Rio Grande Valley chapter and The Banditos Motorcycle Club collided on Valentine’s Day evening. Police charged 42 people with assault and rioting in connection with the shooting and ensuing brawl.

Under the leadership of national president Keith (Conan the Barbarian) Richter, the Pagan’s MC launched its “Blue Wave” expansion campaign in 2018. The club, known for regional biker gang supremacy in the Southeast, was eager to grows its ranks along the East Coast and plant flags in the Southwest and West Coast for the first time. Richter actively forged alliances with Hispanic crime groups and other biker empires to bolster his conquest agenda, specifically the Latin Kings and The Mongols.

With Richter at the helm, the Pagan’s more than doubled in size and opened 15 new chapters around the country, absorbing and patching-over dozens of smaller support clubs. The pivot westward established chapters in Texas, Las Vegas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Arizona, Washington and Oregon.

Richter, 62, is currently serving a three-year prison term for illegal gun possession stemming from a traffic stop in New Jersey in February 2020. Virginia Pagan’s MC leader Robert (Big Bob) Francis reportedly assumed the reins as national president in the early summer following Richter copping a plea and agreeing to prison time for his gun case.

After Reportedly Extorting Rick Ross In Miami, H.A.T.E. Committee Let Members Loose In Stone Mountain & Death Ensued

December 29, 2021 — A 2015 murder rampage put the Gangster Disciples’ H.A.T.E. Committee into the headlines for the first time and on the map with authorities. Well, before the masses new of the vicious drug crew’s run-in with hip-hop mogul “Ricky Rozay.”

In the summer of 2015, H.A.T.E. Committee members Joseph (Little Joe) Broxton and Daniel (Island Danny) Pena killed three people and wounded a number of others over a month-long period throughout Stone Mountain, Georgia. The pair were found guilty of the homicides at a 2017 trial and sentenced to life in prison.

Recently released federal court testimony alleges Miami rapper Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay (aka William Roberts) was shaken down for $3,000,000 in the early 2010s for co-opting the GD street gang brand in his music without seeking permission through proper channels. Former Macon, Georgia GD boss Markell (Killer Kell) White told the story of the H.A.

T.E. Committee extorting Ross to jurors at the 2020 trial of H.A.T.E. Committee co-founder Donnie (Smurf) Glass.

Per court documents and DEA records, Smurf Glass and Kevin (K.K.) Clayton started the H.A.T.E. Committee in late 2009 as the enforcement branch for the GDs in the South. The Rick Ross incident is said to have occurred in 2012 at the Loews Hotel in Miami Beach, with Glass and Clayton spearheading the thuggery. Glass is serving a life prison sentence for racketeering and murder. Clayton got slapped with a 33-year term.

The Gangster Disciples are based out of the Chicago area, but in the past three decades has established a foothold in Southern states like Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and North Carolina. The H.A.T.E. Committee headquartered out of DeKalb, Georgia, right outside of Atlanta. According to court filings and police reports, “Little Joe” Broxton, 27, and Danny “Island” Pena, 29, went on their killing spree after GD Nation in Georgia was given an edict by Glass and Clayton to go to war with sets of the Bloods street gang in the area.

On July 3, 2015 Broxton and Pena robbed and killed Eddie Chadmon at the Stone Mountain Inn. On July 30, they shot Oliver Campbell to death as he slept in his car at a Candler Road gas station. Later that day, they riddled a porch in a local apartment complex with automatic weapon fire, murdering Rocquwell Nelson

Court Testimony: Miami Rap God Rick Ross Coughed Up A Cool 3 Million To GDs’ H.A.T.E. Committee For Unauthorized Name Usage

December 28, 2021 — The Gangster Disciples’ H.A.T.E. Committee enforcement wing extorted Miami rapper Rick Ross for $3,000,000 back in 2012 for claiming GD affiliation in his music without permission, according to testimony by former Macon, Georgia GD boss Markell (Killer Kell) White at a 2020 trial. The original demand was for $6,000,000, but Ross negotiated the penalty down, per the testimony.

The 48-year old White was indicted alongside H.A.T.E. Committee leader Donnie (Smurf) Glass and dozens of GD skippers and lieutenants in 2016. Allhiphop.com was the first media outlet to report on the multi-million dollar shakedown.

GD founder Larry (The Chief) Hoover and GD shot callers around the country were offended by Ross (real name: William Roberts) claiming GD affiliation and leveraging Hoover’s name in his lyrics for his own credibility in the rap game. The H.A.T.E. Committee was founded in the late 2000s out of Decatur, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, and created by GD’s in the American South to handle the most high-priority hits and muscle jobs in the region.

In 2010, Rick Ross released the song “Blowing Money Fast,” on his album Teflon Dom. The chorus of the song proclaims “I think I’m Big Meech, Larry Hoover,” referencing the Gangster Disciples Godfather and Demetrius (Big Meech) Flenory, the notorious Black Mafia Family (BMF) founder frequently name-dropped in rap lyrics over the past decade. Both Hoover and Flenory are incarcerated.

Hoover was bothered by the name-check in the BMF song and the fact that Rick Ross had not sought an okay from the organization to begin, per DEA informants and sent word to the street that the situation had to be dealt with. Soon thereafter, a convoy of H.A.T.E. Committee members went to see Ross in Florida.

On evening of November 17, 2012, Smurf Glass, flanked by GDs Shauntay (Shake & Bake) Craig, Alonzo (Spike) Walton and Kevin (K.K.) Clayton, approached the beefy rap tycoon at The Loews Hotel in Miami Beach, according to DEA records. Taking an impromptu meeting in a hotel suite, the GD contingent demanded a tribute cash if Ross was going to continue to brag of connections to GD Nation in future songs and reportedly threatened physical harm if he didn’t comply. Clayton appeared in a video that appeared on Youtube throwing shade in Ross’ direction for his unsanctioned GD boasts.

Ross, 45, is a monster in the hip-hop world, a self-made mogul who went from prison guard to best-selling rapper and music industry power. His well-crafted rap persona co-opts the images and reputations of a series of historic, real-life drug bosses. The stage name “Rick Ross” is a reference to legendary L.A. drug lord Rick (Freeway Ricky) Ross, a crack kingpin who slang his drugs from a house located underneath the Harbor Freeway (I-110).

The 71-year old Hoover runs GD Nation from his prison cell in Florence, Colorado, the SUPERMAX facility that houses the country’s most dangerous criminals. The Gangster Disciples are headquartered out of Hoover’s hometown of Chicago, but has satellite crews spread across the country and a rank-and-file membership of 30,000.

Smurf Glass, 31, was convicted of murder and racketeering and sentenced to life in prison earlier this year. Craig, 43, and Walton, 52, were GD regional bosses of Alabama and Georgia, respectively. Their convictions resulted in a 40-year term for Craig and a 32-year sentence for Walton.

Clayton, 48, was a co-founder of the H.A.T.E. Committee and a GD enforcer in the Atlanta area. He was slapped with a 33-year stint behind bars after being found guilty. Killer Kell White was sentenced to 8 years in the case.

Gorilla In Their Midst: Panhandle Has Itself An Outlaws X-Mas Season, MC Charity Drive Delivers Loads of Winter Coats To Homeless In Northern FLA.

December 27, 2021 — Florida Outlaws Motorcycle Club power Preston (The Gorilla) Perry pushed a philanthropy campaign throughout the northern part of the state, collecting hundreds of coats for the homeless and almost $2,500 to foot the bill for three down-on-their luck families to have holiday feasts on Christmas Day.

“Gorilla” Perry did an interview with the Pensacola News-Journal about his club’s charity work. Some of the philanthropy was done in the Navarre area where the Outlaws have recently opened up a new chapter. Navarre is in Santa Rosa County in Northwest Florida, 25 miles east of Pensacola. Perry is a member of the club’s Pensacola faction, known as the “Gulf Coast” chapter. He owns Gulf Coast Choppers. More than a dozen Outlaws chapters and support clubs across North Florida participated in the good-deed effort Perry organized.

The Outlaws MC have long maintained a strangle hold on biker gang affairs in the state of Florida. The club was founded and is traditionally based out of the Midwest, but recent reports places leadership in the gang today residing in Western New York. FBI and DEA documents related to a mafia-connected narcotics and bribery investigation name Buffalo Outlaws boss John (Tommy O) Ermin the new boss of the Outlaws and ties him to the Magaddino crime family by way of his job as head of security for a local strip club owned by the alleged Buffalo mob don’s nephew.

Running On Empty? Troubles At Highwaymen MC HQ In Detroit Nothing New, Clubhouse Went Ablaze In ’99 After Alleged Execution

December 25, 2021 — The original Highwaymen Motorcycle club headquarters on Michigan Avenue in Detroit burned to the ground in the early spring of 1999 in what the DEA and FBI believes was an arson to cover up a murder that occurred on the premises. On March 5, 1999, Highwaymen prospect Juan (Runaway) Butler was stabbed and beaten to death. His body washed ashore on the banks of the Detroit River in April. Nobody has ever been charged in his homicide.

The Highwaymen “Mother Ship” clubhouse went ablaze on March 6, less than 24 hours after Butler’s slaying, per federal documents detailing club activity. Butler had been stabbed close to 40 times and experienced massive blunt-force trauma to the head. According to one former high-ranking Highwaymen member, Butler was killed inside the clubhouse.

Today, a new nerve center of operations for the biker gang is in jeopardy of being shuttered. The club’s three-building compound on Michigan Avenue, not far from where the original clubhouse stood, in the subject of eviction proceedings in Wayne County Circuit Court. One of the buildings that comprise the Highwaymen’s Mother Ship doesn’t belong to the gang. It belongs to land developer Milton Hall and he’s been attempting to kick the Highwaymen off his property for the past five years. The Highwaymen’s attorney says it’s merely a case of errors on the respective deeds.

During his debriefing by the feds, former Highwaymen MC vice president Danny (Rocket) Sanchez, told the government that Highwaymen bosses Leonard (Big Daddy) Moore and Anthony (Mad Anthony) Clark were responsible for Runaway Butler’s murder. Sanchez was the star witnesses at Moore, Clark and several other Highwaymen leaders’ trial for drugs and racketeering in 2010. Butler’s homicide wasn’t included in the case. Moore, 73, and Clark, 63, were both found guilty of racketeering.

Butler’s mother disrupted Sanchez’s testimony at the trial, rising from the back of the courtroom, pointing at him and screaming “They killed my son, that man killed my son.” Butler was said to have stolen from the club.

The 45-year old Sanchez is living in an undisclosed location in another part of the country under an assumed identity in the Witness Protection Program. Big Daddy Moore, the club’s Godfather, was released from prison last year amid the pandemic and is serving the remainder of his racketeering conviction on home confinement. Mad Anthony Clark hails from the Highwaymen’s Westside chapter and was once the club’s national president. He got out of prison in 2017. The Butler murder case remains an open investigation with the FBI and the Detroit Police Department.

Juan Butler grew up in Southwest Detroit, a mostly-Hispanic community in the shadow of the Ambassador Bridge, separating the United States and Canada. The Highwaymen MC was founded on the city’s Southwest side in the 1950s and has always had a presence in the neighborhood.

As a 14-year old boy, Butler was arrested for throwing a firebomb into a neighborhood storefront as an induction ritual for a local notorious drug gang known as the Cash Flow Posse and sent to a juvenile detention facility in Saline, Michigan, a half-hour’s drive west of Detroit. Sprung from the Saline facility in the summer of 1998, Butler began gravitating towards the Latin Counts, another well known Southwest Detroit crime syndicate, per police records.

The Highwaymen and the Latin Counts have had ties since the late 1980s when the Latin Counts came to Motown from Chicago. The Cash Flow Posse was created to oppose the growing influence of the Latin Counts in the area.

Rocket Sanchez flipped in 2007 after he was indicted. He admitted to luring Butler to his slaughter, helping murder him and dispose of his body and then torch the Highwaymen’s former clubhouse.

The Highwaymen MC is the state of Michigan’s oldest and largest biker gang, started in Detroit in 1954 by Elburn (Big Max) Burns. The club also has chapters in Indiana, Florida, Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama, New York and New Jersey. There are eight chapters in Michigan alone. Big Max Burns died of natural causes in 1980.
