  • Law Enforcement Motorcycle Gangs

    Any of you guys ride with a law enforcement only motorcycle gang like the "Untouchables." My brother is an Air Marshal (15 years as a street cop a my department first) and they all seem like great guys. However, some of the guys at my department have stated, they are trying to hard to be like the very people we bust. What do you guys think?
    "I pray with my Bible in one hand, and my gun in the other"
    And I'll tell you the last thing my father told me before he died, "Careful son, that gun's loaded."

    P.S. "Ya'll look alot different through a scope"

    I don't know of any Law enforcement motorcycle "Gangs". I know of a few Law Enforcement "Clubs". I'm not aware of any of them promoting or engaging in criminal activity.

      A local motorcycle club comprised mostly of law enforcement personnel is doing a charity "fun run" this morning.

        I didn't say they promoted or engaged in criminal activity. I didn't say there was anything bad about them at all. And they use the word "gang" not me, you can google their websites. There are several of them Untouchables, Iron Pigs, ect. They wear colors the whole nine yards, I was just asking how other officers feel about that. I didn't say it was bad, I'm just asking...

          I have no problem with them wanting to ride together,organize runs or do charity rides. I ride with a couple of guys from my department, though we don't have an organized club or anything. When you said that some of the guys think they are trying to be like the people you bust, I thought you meant they were trying to act like 1%'s or something.

            No I said, "somebody else in my department said that", but they do look just like the 1% guys thats why he said it. I see nothing wrong with it, wanted to know if you guys agreed with me or him.

                I've seen some in my travels, I know what you mean. They are emulating the 1 percenters just as the kids wearing their jeans belt lines around the low side of their asses are emulating street thugs. They think it's cool. They don't see it like much of society sees it.

                I agree with him in that is how I see it too. I can't see into their hearts and minds, they may be saints for all I know.
                I can only see what they wish me to see, and that is what they present, and when they try to look trashy, well .... what am I to think? I see guys now who buy a Harley just to have an excuse to dress like "a biker", it's become a fad.

                Yes, I ride .... but there's no confusing me with any 1 percenters. I also did participate with a Blue Kniights Chapter for awhile, it was the sorce of great embarassment at times like when checking into a motel on a long ride or at some resturants (in several different ways), so I dropped it.

                Just another sign of the times we live in I suppose. Later........

                    Personally, I always thought the "club" stuff was silly. I can see belonging to a group or organization that gets together to do things or go on group rides and rallies. I always thought the patches, vest and other accoutrements were a bit silly.
                    Actions like loudly asking for a deep discount, almost demanding in tone, at a motel at check in time, because they were cops ... or getting loud and boisterous ... and no doubt annoying to other patrons in resturants at nearby tables ... loudly telling war stories interspersed with some profanity all while making it obvious to all they were cops.

                    Most of the Blue Knights are OK guys and gals ... and it was just a small percentage and seemed to happen at larger meetings of several chapters or more, but it was enough that I dropped it as it killed the fun for me. It was almost like when two or more chapters got together, someone would want to see who could be the biggest ***. Not being mean, just real embarassing like.

                    On the local level, it was just good guys getting together for rides or doing a charity event.

                      two words, Patriot Guard... I don't care how much black leather these guys wear, there colors are red, white, and blue... and most of them in my area are LE. If you know what the Patriot Guard is about then you'll agree with me!

                        Organizations like the Blue Knights are harmless, but when groups of cops start dressing and acting like criminals, like the "Wild Pigs", they're a disgrace and an embarrassment to the profession.

                        Imagine the hearty laughs the real outlaw MC members get when they see misguided cops trying to emulate them.....it's pathetic.

                          I founded the 1st Woming chapter of the Blue Knights and as soon as they wanted to play 1%er, I was out.

                          I asked for independent status from the International, but they said since a chaper was so close, I could not be an independent.

                          Sad.

                            In my neck of the woods, the Blue Knights are a legitimate fraternity of LEO's who enjoy riding motorcycles.

                            We want nothing to do with 1%'ers - we consider ourselves the "good guys" (and gals).

                              ride to live, live to ride

                              I'd rather ride on my Harley-Davidson than "in" anything.
                              But, I've always been a GDI - no clubs before police work, none since.
                              The message is this - justice is unprejudiced - and demands
                              unaffiliated power. If you can't appeciate a sprocket as much
                              as a light bar - or a Rebel as much as a neo-con...reconsider your calling.

                              If we are to build a network of intel, of inter-racial, inter-political
                              information - we had better not buy into sterotypes of any sort.

                              I'll ride when I am no longer enforcing the law - it's a freedom -
                              an Americanism - that started with vets, and will continue, God willing.
                              Enforcement is 90% of the law.
