Crime Scene - Life in the Outlaw motorcycle gang

Crime Scene - Life in the Outlaw motorcycle gang: "Each member of the gang, officially known as the American Outlaw Association, must own an American-made bike.
Members are allowed in only after a probationary period, during which they may be called on to do menial tasks to 'earn the respect' of the members. Membership requires a unanimous vote of the chapter.
Federal prosecutors in Virginia outlined the gang's practices in a 50-page indictment unsealed this week.
Twenty-three current or former members and four associates are accused of participating in a criminal enterprise that engaged in crimes including assaults, drug dealing and illegal gambling.
The indictment details the criminal allegations against the group. As a longtime police and courts reporter, however, I also found that it offered an unusual window into the inner workings of what federal officials say is a highly-organized group.
Members belong to a chapter that has a president, vice-president, treasurer and an enforcer, the indictment explains. Chapters are grouped into regions run by a boss. And a national president oversees the organization.
Members wear leather or denim vests on which they display patches, according to court papers. One patch shows the club emblem, a skull with crossed pistons.
Another patch reads 'Snitches are a Dying Breed,' which authorities say shows a 'commitment to identify, expel, and, if necessary, murder' people associated with the club who cooperate with law enforcement."
