More than 150 Hells Angels, other bikers block road during police showdown on Vancouver Island

More than 150 Hells Angels, other bikers block road during police showdown on Vancouver Island

More than 150 motorcyclists — including members of Hells Angels — flouted police authority Saturday when the group refused to stop at a roadside check on Vancouver Island.

According to Sgt. Lindsey Houghton, police had information that the bikers would participate in a group ride Saturday and set out to conduct safety checks. Police officers from the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of B.C. and other integrated road safety units then gathered near Duncan to monitor and halt the large group of motorcyclists, who had plans to travel from Nanaimo to Victoria on the Island Highway.

“The bikers, many of whom were observed allegedly ignoring red lights at intersections, speeding, and unsafely passing other vehicles on the road after leaving Nanaimo, were stopped on Highway 1 southbound near the North Cowichan Municipal Hall shortly after 2 p.m.,” Houghton said.

However, the bikers refused to pull into the roadside check area that had been set up and instead, blocked the highway, refusing direction from officers. The showdown ended when outnumbered officers were faced with no choice but to let the group pass. Houghton said police “documented the refusals” and would follow up with appropriate enforcement.

“Seeing a large group of bikers rolling down the highway and through towns can be intimidating for the public and that is their intention — to intimidate,” Houghton said. “Today was yet another example of groups like the Hells Angels thinking they are above the law. CFSEU-BC and its policing partners will continue to monitor events like today’s and ensure the public’s safety by seizing every available and appropriate enforcement opportunity against those involved in organized crime.”

Sgt. Lindsey Houghton is characterizing BIKERS as being intimidating?

Maybe to him.

They don't bother me like sadistic, Oath-Breaking PIGS.

Something tells me, they won't be fucking with those bikers quite as enthusiastically as say, they might a 4 or 5 foot, 90 pound woman.

I see they resort to the "safety checks" BS to harass people, regardless of what a person thinks of bike riders of any description they are allowed the same freedoms as everyone else. Also the "observed running red lights etc...", hey guess what? We would believe you if you showed us dashcam or still photo's of these infringements, until then it is just more BS you want us to take like good little sheeple. Sure, if they are harming people, dealing drugs or whatever go after them, don't lube us up with tales of red lights and "intimidation", bunch of wankers will now go and pull over 200 ordinary folks they can extort a few tickets out of to make up the lost revenue for the day.

And I was always told the horsemen always get their man.  What a parade of incompetent dick weeds.

Adios.

Love the Honey Badger, one of the players for the Rugby Union team I play has that nickname, one tough hombre. I know elements of bike "gangs" are not the sort of people you would want your parents to meet, but overall they have the right idea, challenge authority, don't just accept that the rules are just and fair and even, they are not. If the bikers are 1%'ers I would rather them than the fucking 1% bankers and "elites" who poison our lives daily. Just think about it, if there is a way to live like a biker without having to resort to some criminality, wouldn't it be much more enjoyable than being a drone?

From what every one world wide is saying, no one intends to follow any of the laws anymore since the bankers don't have to, which allows them to steal trillions of our money and wealth,  and the intel agencies don't have to abide the law since they  violate all the Bill of Rights they were sworn to uphold and they are ignoring them as if they did not exist, so we can do the same thing.  What is good for the goose, is good for the gander, only we won't hide behind the law to do it, like they do.
