What Is R.I.C.O. ?

Today, governments and their agencies worldwide are classifying their “Biker” populations as undesirable criminal organizations, slating them for harassment and selective prosecution. Our governments are blatantly determined to eradicate the biker lifestyle. I will attempt to show how all of this began, and how it is connected to the U.S. government’s “war on motorcycle clubs.” No matter where you live, this “War On Motorcycle Clubs” is a serious threat to our individual constitutional and human rights as citizens of our respective countries.

In 1961, during the John F. Kennedy administration, the office of Attorney General was held by his brother Robert Kennedy. With help from the U.S. Congress, Attorney General Kennedy got a special organized crime bill passed called the Racketeering influence and Corrupt Organization Act of 1961 (RICO). This new law was designed to prosecute the secretive organized crime organizations such as the Mafia, Drug Cartels, and Domestic Terrorists. The RICO Act was designed to allow Federal Prosecutors to go outside the normal rules of conduct and evidence to gain convictions.

These new rules allowed the government to charge unconnected criminal acts committed by individual members of these organizations together in a single Indictment. Since these organizations were classified as criminal organizations, all the prosecutor had to do was to persuade a jury that each of these independent criminal acts were somehow committed in furtherance of the organization’s goals. This helped establish the necessary “Criminal Enterprise” to qualify as a RICO Act violation. The government could do this even though it was not necessary to prove any of the defendants knew or participated in the criminal acts of others charged in the RICO Indictment.

In 1980, former movie actor and governor of California Ronald Reagan was elected President of the U.S., with ex-CIA Director George Bush as Vice President. Soon after Reagan took office, he issued an Order declaring America’s top four Motorcycle Clubs to be classified as Criminal Organizations. This new classification added the motorcycle clubs to the list of traditional criminal organizations who could be easily prosecuted using the special RICO rules.

President Reagan ordered Attorney General William French Smith and his Justice Department to set up special regional task force headquarters across America. The Justice Department’s mission was to profile and get the selected motorcycle clubs off the streets using whatever means necessary. In my opinion, the reason behind President Reagan’s Actions was his daughter’s supposed involvement with the Hell’s Angels Motorcycle Club.

It doesn’t seem to be just a coincidence that the Hell’s Angels were the first Motorcycle Club the Justice Department went after using the RICO Act. It seems obvious Ronald Reagan brought his own personal animosity against motorcycle clubs to the office of President. He then used the power of that office to pursue his personal vendetta against motorcycle clubs, using the broad RICO rules which almost always guarantee conviction.

Over the last 30 years federal law enforcement agencies have expanded this selective prosecution to include more than 500 Motorcycle Clubs. These motorcycle clubs are now classified as “Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs/Criminal Organizations.”

During my lengthy RICO sentence, I did extensive research and litigation in the courts. I’m fully aware of the uphill battle it will take to change the classification and profiling of the targeted motorcycle clubs, but it can be done. It is our Constitutional right to be treated like any other citizen. The battle can be fought and won only in the courts.

Just think every member of our armed forces were mandated by our government to swear an oath to protect and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. Yes this includes our government. Today our government and it’s bought and paid for politicians are rapidly destroying our country and our constitutional rights. We, myself and every other veteran, have a responsibility and duty to our families and the citizens of America to honor that oath. Our Forefathers gave us the tools, Constitutional Law, now let’s work together and use it.

  • Great article and research. Yes, a long road ahead, but it can be ridden.

  • Yes Brother, there is no expiration date on that oath we took. And the threat to our rights is real!

  • I really enjoyed this article. I feel more educated now.

  • As a United States marine corp veteran you’re right I took that oath and it seems we’re under attack by our on government. It’s time we stand up for our rights.

  • Couldnt agree more. This isnt jus an American issue but the whole of North America. If you look at the legislations (U.S &Canadian) and compare what they define as criminal acts and colusions you can Easily draw a comparison to what OUR Government & Law enforcement & the big $$ corps. putting them in power do on a Daily basis blanketed by theyre corrupt hypocrisy of Laws which allow theyre acts to go unpunishable. The time has long come for North Americans to stand up to the Man. Revolution is a strong word but….. thx RB Respects.

  • Federal law enforcement may change their outlook on M/C’s and other groups in our current battle against Islamic Terrorists threating this Country. Just today Isis Claims responsibility for the attack in Texas, Federal Agencies and local Law enforcement will find themselves welcoming Organized groups to help them. Our Government with the Lackadaisical approach to these Islamic training camps that are in this Country, are Negligent in protecting our great Nation. We the people Must stand up and all Clubs, groups must come together for the Greater good to fight this evil plague that is upon our United States of America !


  • Even Veteran organizations are in the cross hairs of the Goverment. Look at Operation Viligent Eagle.
    Napalitano singled out veterans groups in this.
    Biker and Veteran – Yes you are looked at!

  • Continue your good fight for the freedom we are willing to die for.

  • Great article, and from reading it, wouldn’t our government fall under RICO, I mean it’s pretty much organized crime anymore.

  • Well Written, It’s important we elect people that understand that government overreach has to be stopped

  • Truth. It takes a brave man to stand up and tell the truth in these, the waning days of our Republic.

    The law is no more a shield for the common-man, but rather, a sword to be used against him by the fedbeast. What we are seeing now is extra-judicial punishment, using distortions of laws to attack individuals and organizations.

    When there is no crime, and there is no evidence of a crime, the fedbeast can simply act on “informed suspicions”. “No-knock” warrants, “nighttime service” warrants, full-scale swat assaults on residences and clubhouses, all are tools used by the beast to entrap and destroy innocent men and women. “Investigation” of invented or imagined crimes can be drawn out for months and years, while the targets languish in federal concentration-camps.


    One of the wonderful aspects of the RICO act is the definition of “predicate acts”. If you got arrested for disorderly conduct 20 years ago, and are arrested under in a RICO investigation, then that 20 year old charge becomes a predicate act, with the new charge “proving” that you are part of a criminal conspiracy.

    It’s time to wake up. The day when a good man can be “stand-up”, do his own bit, and ignore what’s going on across the country is over. The fedbeast is using the oldest tactic there is-divide and conquer. Every time two CLUBS have a disagreement, it just give the beast more ammunition.

    Think of the one sight that would scare the beast more than anything else…members from ALL the major clubs riding in protest, handlebar to handlebar. If the beast wasn’t afraid of the Clubs, they wouldn’t go after them, one at a time. If they were all united to fight back, share intelligence, work to change the way the people are misrepresented, then you’d see some real fear.

    It would either pave the way to changes, or it would bring the beast out in the open, where ordinary citizens could see what is being done to innocent people IN THEIR NAME.

    Keep up the good fight, RB. We need people like you more than ever, and we need people who haven’t had to live through the hell you lived through to wake up and join the fight.


  • I found your article interesting but have a question for you. Are you saying none of these “clubs” engage in any illegal activities?
