Texas Déjà Vu

Friction continues in Texas between motorcycle clubs that belong to the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents and clubs that loudly proclaim the COC&I to be a Bandidos controlled racket. That friction seemed to reach a climax 15 months ago when members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club crashed a confederation meeting at the Twin Peaks […]

Forty-five days after bragging that a racketeering indictment had “struck a significant blow to the Bandidos criminal enterprise” the Department of Justice remains unwilling to give the public a glimpse at any evidence that might substantiate the charges in a 23-page, surplusage filled indictment against Bandidos Motorcycle Club vice president John Xavier Portillo, president Jeffrey […]
