									History This section needs additional citations for verification. Please

material may be challenged and removed. (September 2009) The Outlaws
Motorcycle Club was established out of Matilda's Bar on old Route 66 in
McCook, Illinois a southwestern suburb of Chicago in 1935. The club
stayed together during World War II, but like most organizations at that
time, their activities were limited. In May 1946, the Outlaws attended
the first major post-war motorcycle event in the midwest, which was held
at Soldier Field, Chicago.[citation needed] By 1950, the Outlaws had
expanded rapidly and most of their members were now from the Chicago
area[citation needed]. The club re-established itself in Chicago and
changed their logo; a small skull replaced a winged motorcycle and Old
English-style letters were adopted. This design was embroidered on a
black shirt and hand painted on leather jackets. In 1954, the Crossed
Pistons were added to the original small skull. This design was
embroidered on a black western-style shirt with white piping. The movie
The Wild One with Marlon Brando influenced this backpatch. The Skull and
Crossed Pistons were redesigned in 1959, making them much larger with
more detail. The A.O.A. Logo was adopted as an answer to the A.M.A. logo.
In 1960, the American Motorcycle Association, an organization which
supervises all official races in the United States, banned the word
"Outlaws" from all race clothing.[citation needed] Therefore all racing
club members wore the sign O.M.C.(Outlaw Motorcycle Club) on their
outfits until 1963. The Outlaws became an official member of the 1%er
Brotherhood of Clubs in 1963, making it the first official 1%er club east
of the Mississippi River[citation needed]. On July 4, 1964, the Cult MC
from Voorheesville were patched-over by the Outlaws. During the
Springfield Motor Races in August of the same year, they became
associates of the Gypsy Outlaws from Louisville, Kentucky. A Milwaukee
chapter was then established and the "Outlaw Nation" was founded with
Chicago as Mother Chapter. On January 1, 1965, the American Outlaws
Association (A.O.A.) was founded. The insignia of the club, a skull and
crossed pistons, is named "Charlie". In July 1967, the Outlaws National
President and a number of other members travelled south from Chicago and
sanctioned the club's first chapter in Florida. "God Forgives, Outlaws
Don't" ("G.F.O.D.") became the club's motto in 1969. In 1977, the Outlaws
patched-over Satan's Choice MC in Canada, to found its first foreign
chapter[citation needed]. The club's first Iowa chapter was founded in
1978 when Diablo Knights MC became an Outlaws associate. A member not
belonging to the Mother Chapter in Chicago became the club's National
President for the first time[citation needed] in 1984 and in 1989, the
abbreviation "MC" (Motorcycle Club) was added to the backpatch. The
Outlaws' first European chapter was established in France in 1993 and the
following year, an Australian chapter was founded[citation needed]. MC 44
of France also became a chapter. In 1995, the club's Chicago chapter was
split into three groups: Mother Chapter (Southside), Westside and
Northside. A second European chapter was also opened in Norway. In 1999,
the Belgian Outlaws MC, which already existed independently for 25 years,
became a member of the AOA. The 2000s saw the Outlaws expand rapidly in
Europe. The English and Welsh Outlaws MC, until then independent MCs,
joined the AOA in 2000. Ghost Riders MC of Germany joined the AOA and
chapters were opened in Sweden and Thailand in 2001. In 2002, the
Outlaws' first support club, the Black Pistons, was founded in
Germany[verification needed] There are now Black Pistons chapters in the
United States, Canada, England, Poland and Norway. Poland, along with
Italy, also opened its first Outlaws chapter that year. By 2003, the
Outlaws were represented in 19 US states[citation needed]. In late 2004,
the first Outlaws chapter was opened in Russia and in 2005, the club
celebrated the 70th Anniversary as a Motorcycle Club and the 40th
Anniversary of the AOA. A Japanese chapter was opened in 2006 and in
2007, the club opened a chapter in the Philippines. The Black Pistons
also started its first chapter in Australia[when?]. Famous and infamous
members The FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitive #453, Harry Joseph Bowman,
known World Leader of the AOA, in prison since 1999 for three murders,
was the international president of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. During
the time that Bowman was a fugitive in 1998, it had chapters in more than
30 cities in the United States and some 20 chapters in at least four
other countries. American country music singer David Allan Coe was a
member of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club. Legal prosecutions United States
Florida On the morning of August 16, 2007, Federal agents along with the
Daytona Beach SWAT Team raided the Outlaws clubhouse on Beach Street in
Daytona Beach, Florida[citation needed] looking for drugs, weapons,
contraband, paraphernalia, etc.; they tore the Daytona Beach Clubhouse
apart for the better part of the day and found nothing, but removed as
many of the club's pictures and any other possibly identifying
information as they could find. Federal agents also raided a home in
Ormond Beach and two other clubhouses around the state. The search of the
Jacksonville clubhouses netted federal agents 60 weapons including pocket
and kitchen knives. U.S. Attorney General Alberto Gonzales announced a
Detroit grand jury indictment of 16 of the Outlaws National Club's
members[citation needed]. The Detroit grand jury indictment included
various charges, including assault and drug distribution. Eleven Outlaws
leaders and high-ranking members of the gang were arrested after a five-
year investigation. The FBI said several gang members were charged with
conspiracy to commit assault on members of the Hells Angels Motorcycle
Club in Indiana. Georgia Frank Rego Vital of Roberta, Georgia, an
Outlaws MC member, was shot and killed in an early morning gunfight June
24, 2007 in the parking lot of The Crazy Horse Saloon strip club in
Forest Park, Georgia by two members of the Renegades MC in what has been
described as a self-defense shooting after Vital and other Outlaws
members followed the men from the club. Both Renegade members were shot
several times but survived. Illinois On July 30, 2008, several
facilities associated with the Outlaws in the Chicago area were raided by
agents from the FBI and the ATF. The FBI brought in a SWAT team and an
urban assault vehicle to the clubhouse in the west side of the city in
case violence were to break out. Massachusetts On July 31, 2007 the FBI
raided Brockton, Massachusetts Outlaws[citation needed]. The Taunton,
Massachusetts Club house was raided, but due to immunity of the Brockton
club house nothing happened. Many people were arrested, including Joseph
Noe, former President of the Taunton chapter. New Hampshire On June 27,
2006 Christopher Legere of Raymond, New Hampshire, an Outlaws member, was
arrested in the murder of a man who was wearing a Hells Angels shirt .
The victim, John Denoncourt, 32, of Manchester, New Hampshire, was shot
and killed outside the 3-Cousins Pizza and Lounge in Manchester on Sunday
June 25, 2006 after he was spotted hugging the bartender, who was
Legere's girlfriend. Denoncourt, according to friends and family, was not
a Hells Angel member himself but had friends who were. Legere had been
involved in another incident in Connecticut in early 2006 when he was
charged with illegal possession of body armor by a convicted felon.
Pennsylvania March 17, 2009, 22 peoplencluding a correctional officerre
charged in connection with a $3.6 million cocaine distribution ring
operated by members and "wannabes" of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club in
Luzerne County, Pennsylvania. August 24, 2009, 15 members of the Outlaws
Philadelphia chapter have been arrested in connection with a
methamphetine ring. Those arrested included chapter president Thomas "The
Boss" Zaroff Jr and Charles "The Panhead" Rees. According to PA District
Attorney Tom Corbett the gang sold methamphetine in Phila, Bucks,
Montgomery, Chester, and Delaware counties in PA and in Camden and
Burlington counties in NJ. South Dakota On August 8, 2006, four Outlaws
members were wounded, three seriously, in an ambush in Custer State Park,
South Dakota among bikers gathered for the Sturgis Motorcycle
Rally[citation needed]. A woman acquaintance was also wounded. Two men
arrested and charged with attempted murder were said to be Canadian
members of the Hells Angels. A statement posted on the Outlaws' web site
had announced Outlaws members would attend Sturgis but not make any
"display of power," and claimed that they had given prior notice to
federal law enforcement of their intention to sightsee and enjoy the
rally. Tennessee On January 1, 2010, the Knox County Sheriff's Office in
conjunction with the Knoxville Police Department raided a house located
at 205 Clifton Road to serve two arrest warrants and execute a search
warrant on the property alleged to be an Outlaw clubhouse. Officers,
including members of the SWAT team, armed with "flashbang" grenades and
assault rifles, raided the facility just before midnight but found only a
handful of elderly club members, who surrendered quickly and peaceably.
Knox County Sheriff James Jones acted on information from an undercover
informant that many of the members of the club would be present at the
informal celebration of New Year's Eve. Arrest warrants had been issued
for Mark "Ivan" Lester and Kenneth Foster for their alleged roles in a
confrontation with the undercover informant earlier in December 2009, who
had infiltrated the organization over 14 months ago. According to Sheriff
Jones, Lester and Foster allegedly threatened the informant with a pistol
and demanded his colors. The informant, who claimed to be in fear of
their safety, submitted to the men's demands. Mark Lester is alleged to
be the Regional President in charge of the clubs operations in both the
state of Kentucky and Tennessee. Kenneth Foster is alleged to be the
local Knoxville chapter Outlaw Motorcycle Club President. Both, Lester
and Foster, were arrested at the residence, have been charged with
aggravated robbery and aggravated kidnapping. Upon search of the
residence the officers found a few legally registered handguns, small
amounts of marijuana, and alleged they had evidence of other illegal
activities. Both men were jailed and held in lieu of 3 million dollar
bonds. Other than the charges stemming from the club's unmasking of the
undercover officer, however, no other charges have been filed. Community
reaction to the raid has been largely critical, with a majority of
commenters on Knoxville news sites discussing the raid holding the
opinion that the Sheriff's Office conducted the raid as a political move.
Wisconsin On June 10, 1997, US Attorneys indicted 17 members of the
Outlaws Motorcycle Club for racketeering, murder, narcotics trafficking,
and bombing. Members were from Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, and Florida
chapters. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms completed a 2 year
investigation sparked by a war between the Outlaws and Hells Angels for
control over areas of Chicago and Milwaukee. On December 19, 2000, Kevin
O'Neill, president of the Wisconsin/Stateline Outlaws chapter, received a
sentence of life in prison after being convicted on racketeering charges.
On May 31, 2001, Edward Anastas, one-time president of the Milwaukee
chapter of the Outlaws motorcycle club, was arrested after being named in
a sealed indictment charging him with racketeering conspiracy, cocaine
conspiracy, and participating in a bombing. On March 14, 2003, Thomas
Sienkowski, president of the Milwaukee chapter of the Outlaws motorcycle
club, was sentenced to 10 years in prison for racketeering. United
Kingdom In England and Wales the group has around 28 different chapters.
On August 12, 2007, Hells Angel Gerry Tobin, a Canadian living in
Mottingham, London, was shot dead returning from the Bulldog Bash
festival held near Long Marston, South Warwickshire. He was singled out
at random by members of the Outlaws. In November 2008, seven men, Sean
Creighton, Simon Turner, Dane Garside, Dean Taylor, Malcolm Bull, Karl
Garside and Ian Cameron, the entire Warwickshire Chapter, were convicted
of his murder and sentenced to life imprisonment. The minimum terms
before consideration of parole were between 25 and 30 years - a total of
191 years. On 20th January 2008 there was a brawl between up to 30 of the
rival gangs at Birmingham International Airport. Police recovered various
weapons including Knuckledusters, hammers and a meat cleaver. Seven
Outlaw members and five Hells Angels faced trial as a result.   Germany
In summer 2006, Outlaw members of the Mosbach chapter attacked two
members of the Hells Angels Heilbronn. In the following trial, most
Outlaw members were convicted for attempted manslaughter. The Mosbach
Chapter was closed thereafter. At the same time, an Osnabrck section's
member was shot by trying to enter the Bandidos president's house in a
small village near Osnabrck. After that, Bandidos' president was
convicted to nine months on probation on charges of illegal weapon
ownership. Bandidos claim they have acted in self-defense. On March 5,
2008, fighting ensued at a motorcycle meeting in Germany between Outlaws
and Hells Angels members and several people were arrested. References ^
