Outlaws motorcycle gang members indicted in Virginia: "Mark Steven Fiel, known as 'Snuff,' 59, who officials say is president of the Outlaws' Manassas/Shenandoah Valley chapter. Four other alleged members of that Virginia chapter were indicted. So was Jack Rosga, a.k.a. 'Milwaukee Jack,' 53, the Outlaws' national boss.
The 50-page indictment, handed up Thursday and unsealed Tuesday, provides a window into what authorities say is a highly organized and violent gang that operates using a well-defined chain of command and a strict code.
Members, who become part of the gang only by a unanimous chapter vote that follows a probationary period, earn patches to show their loyalty. They pay dues, can be taxed to cover a member's legal costs and may be beaten if they break club rules, according to the indictment.
The Outlaws' 'entire environment revolves around violence,' said Neil H. MacBride, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, where the indictment was secured."
