Hey, if he's interested. He's got a passage. We have him on the show. He's actually doing Mel's life story right now. Yes.

"Most worldwide renowned iconic biker on the planet. Doesn't matter what gang, who you are, everybody and anybody knows whose Sonny barger is. And he's responsible for the internationalization of the hells angels for the expansion of the hells angels. They've become, as we said earlier, a worldwide international crime syndicate, that is due to the leadership and foresight of Sonny barger. So you might say that sunny bargers to hells angels, what Steve Jobs was to like Apple and technology just took him to a whole new level. I've said many times that if sunny barger had used his powers and skills and charm and charisma for good, he would be the CEO of a Fortune 500 company. But the point I'm making there is they can say all they want, but the point about it is if they did not have the utmost trust and if it was not a shoe in that you're gonna be voted in, they would not let you within a state in the same state as Sonny barger much less writing and accompanying him to laconia, right? If they didn't believe it, if they didn't believe us, or if they felt like they were tricked, it would have ended right in that trailer. Yeah, a couple shots. That would be the end of it, and as we've established already, you were working without a cover team. So we may not have found you for a while. Well, I would have ended up buried in a shallow grave duct taped, and you already told him how to do it 'cause you showed him the pictures. Well, you know what, and I understand their reaction. You know what? No one likes to be tricked. No one likes to be humiliated. No one likes to be betrayed. Anybody that's ever suffered a betrayal, even if it's just, you know, you're in high school and your girlfriend decides that she's going to go out with somebody else. No one likes how that feels to be tricked. And from ground zero over the course of two years, we had built trust. And then the trust turned into loyalty in some cases, the loyalty turned into love. There's no doubt in my mind that and I was even told this by members of the hells angels when they found out who I really was. I would have stepped in front of a bullet for you. There was a hells angel who was reluctant to cooperate. And I came into an interview room and said, dude, man, I'm sorry..

"Officers had ever been patched by the hells angels? Well, to my knowledge, none had been. I don't know that I can verify that or put my hand on a Bible and say that at least common knowledge within the law enforcement community is that all the other major biker gangs had at some point or other been infiltrated. The hells angels had not. And the hell's angels took a great sense of pride in that that no one had ever got inside their wire. And part of the reason was was their own rules and protocols. You had to prospect with the hells angels for a minimum mandatory of one year before you were even eligible to be considered to be voted for membership. Other gangs, you know, 60, 90, a 120 days. Prospecting, you could get your patch with the hells angels, part of the way they insulated themselves was that they extended the prospecting time so long, they knew that a cop couldn't ride the train that long. They could wait you out. They could wait you out. They were smart. They know what they're doing. So we're coming to the end. I still hadn't had a patch. I was a prospect, and I reached way back into that information that what am I supposed to do if I see a Mongol? It's your job to kill him. So it was time to make the play. And I had thought this through for years after first hearing that. So I went to the hells angels and I said, look, you guys know, I'm a debt collector. You guys know I'm a gun runner. I run guns into Mexico. You guys know I have associations in Mexico through the solo angels through my old solo angels connects. I got people down there. Word is there's a Mongol down there running his mouth. And he's talking shit on the hells angels. He's talking about how he kicked our ass at Frick and Loughlin, how he shot people up and killed people, how he's going to start running Mexican meth right up the hills angels asked into Arizona right through nogales right up into Phoenix right into Sonny barger's backyard and there's not a fucking thing we can do about it. And I said, I love you guys. I want to be with you and this is how I'm going to show you. I want to go down there and kill that guy. Their instant reaction was not like, well, hey, wait a minute, man. Pump the brakes. No one jerked my leash. It was like right on, dude. That's fucking what we're talking about. Here's the gun to do it. They gave me a gun. Here's how I want you to do it. Pop them in the eye. So there's no blowout..

Now it's more under the radar. Now it's more clubs trying to do good things because they know that there's a lot more attention on them now if that makes sense after you know the early eighties so are there a lot of groups out there. A lot of clubs. Oh yes and i a lot more than there were previously. Do you have a general opinion motorcycle clubs today versus how they were or or maybe not even comparing just where the state of motorcycle clubs are. Today i do. There's certain ones that are. It's hard for me to see. I guess they are today versus where they were. Once upon a time. I saw the real the real list of the real and that's how i grew up in now. I see these guys with white tennis shoes and flat bills and their dina lows and like i said i the sons of anarchy culture. So it's it's more of a fad now but you can still see those real bikers As far as my involvement. I don't really want to be involved with that. My opinions changed over the past six months. I guess you would say on where my stances you'd look at me and think i had. I had a nickname. Actually when i was working in cleveland at the alley cat oyster bar. They called me biker. Mom but i'm far from it actually. Do i like motorcycles. Absolutely do i want to be involved in any type of a club. Hell no. there's two. There's way too many politics and you know i'm a woman.

So make sure you get that right if you want to follow along so again to kind of a little bit of a lot of the relative unknown podcast is centered around and you've kind of reference him a couple of different times heroes. We've been talking your dad Bush crouch who later on Through the witness protection program as he is kind of originally introduced in the show is paul dome and he was You know really quite a high ranking member of the hell's angels and that's where this cleveland connection comes in so he's a guy who was born in louisiana and i mean she's you go back and look at the train of of despair here. I mean your dad was born in some really crappy conditions with his mom and no no dad around and his upbringing and And then obviously you kinda fell four with you and what you had to deal with. But he you know ends up getting into prison Pretty early in life. And then that's also where this whole odor cycle. Fascination comes with because him and his cellmate at six. Am in the morning and five pm at night or racing to the prison window to hear this dude ride to and from back to work and just the i don't know the ballade tones of the engine really. That was the romance where they fell in love with motorcycles. Right correct that was the first page of his manuscript is if you asked me how i became a biker. This is how and it was in huntsville Him and his cellmate. We're getting up and listening to this. Became the highlight of their day. This gentleman just writing to work you know. And they looked forward to that and just listening to him. You know writing down the road and Switching gears and i mean they loved it and the first thing that he did when he got out of prison was he went and bought himself a bike and he learned how to ride and then he bought a so major bike learned. He taught his soulmate. How to ride when he got out. So that's where it all started. And he went on to hook up with some of the original members of the bandidos actually and form a club down in texas. So that's all where it started but he had a very tragic upbringing. That i never knew a lot about until we did this podcast. And some of the producers really dug into his past and brought it all to light for me so that was one wonder as a wonderful thing that happened because of all of this is how much i learned about my father that i had never known previously so he does time with the bandidos he ends up turning in his patches goes out west and i don't know if he had like appointments or he eventually runs into sonny barger who of courses You know one of the most well known probably the most well known hells angel.

Gang the hell's angels this week. We'll be exploring his club's rise to national infamy alongside the counterculture movements of the nineteen sixties. Next week we'll see how drugs and crime changed the face of the club forever in Nineteen Sixty three twenty five year old. Sonny Bono was president of the Oakland. Chapter of the hells angels. This meant he sat at the top of the burgeoning empire of outlaw motorcycle clubs known for drinking fighting and dealing drugs. Many anti-establishment organizations like these actually rose to prominence after world. War Two military veterans. Who had trouble fitting back into the square world of the nineteen fifties needed somewhere to go and shoot the breeze? Hollywood saw the appeal to the Marlon Brando movie. The Wild One introduced audiences across America to the world of leather jacket wearing motorcycle. Gangs causing mayhem. Wherever they went. But in the summer of nineteen sixty three sunny bargar had a bigger concern establishing his Oakland Charter as the dominant. Hells Angel Club even more powerful than the Founding San Bernardino Chapter. He also wanted to unite with other outlaw motorcycle clubs around the State. Sure they spent a fair amount of time beating each other up and jockeying for territory but they could put their beef aside to unite against a common foe. The cops so sunny bargar had an idea that would eventually become a hells angels tradition the Labor Day. Weekend RUN OUTLAW. Motorcycle clubs from all over the state would unite in Porterville California a medium sized town halfway between Fresno and Bakersfield there was no Setai Tin Ary. Just a plan to drink smoke weed and get up to whatever. Mischief found them. Sunny Bargar led his Oakland. Hells angels into Porterville to rendezvous with four other leading clubs the stray Satan's the galloping goose's the Coleman sheriffs and the cavaliers in all there were about two hundred bikers invading a town of about nine thousand people. At first everything went according to plan with bikers from different clubs bonding over drugs and women then an Oakland Angel Named Charlie. Magoo was having a drink in a bar minding his own business when an old townie through a beer in his face as soon as Magoo leapt to his feet. The old townie realized he'd made a grave error. There was no way he could take this guy in a fight. The townie bumbled an apology but it was too little too late. Magoo punched him in the face. The old man stumbled so Magoo punched him a second time. Then a third. The old man collapsed on the floor. Knock out but instead of settling things the townie went home grabbed. A gun came back and pointed it at Magoo. This was his town. These angels needed to go Vista Magoo had backup a group of fellow. Angels grabbed townies gun and turned it back around on him. They all took turns beating him until he had to be sent to the hospital. Meanwhile sunny was presiding over a Bachan. All that had taken over the Porterville main drag motorcycles were racing each other down the street the bikers girlfriends and female hangers on. Were having wet. T shirt contests. Everyone was drunk high or both. The angels stopped any vehicles passing through town and forced open. Their car does if they were young women in the car. They attempted to pull them out so they could join the party whether they wanted to on not not. Everyone was thrilled namely the Porterville. Chief of police. He worried he was losing control of the situation so he called out to other counties for backup by nine thirty PM over two hundred and fifty cops rolled into downtown to stop the madness. Their first move was to set up a blockade hoping to direct the bikers. Down One road out of town once was set the chief got on the Bullhorn and announce the bike has had five minutes to clear out. Meanwhile fire trucks spreads soapy water down the main streets making it impossible to race they turn their hoses on bikers. Knocking them off their harleys. Local teens even got into the action climbing to the tops of buildings and throwing bricks down onto the street faced with an army of guns hoses and bricks. The bikers had no choice but to leave town. Sunny led his bikers to the parking lot of Sports Center. A few miles outside of town to assess the situation as they counted their ranks. They realized they were missing for members who had been knocked off their bikes and arrested. Some of the other clubs wanted to give up and peel out. They trusted that lost members to bail themselves out of jail and find their way home but sunny refused to leave without all of his Oakland. Hells Angels Brothers. So at two thirty. Am they turned their bikes around and headed? Back to PORTERVILLE SEVILLE COPS had lined up squad cars to block the bridge leading into town and they were prepared to wait as long as it took for the hells angels to leave town for Good. Sunny wasn't intimidated. By the show of force. He ordered his bikers to line up in a counter blockade across the other half of the bridge. If the cops wouldn't let people into town. Then the hells angels wouldn't let anyone leave either. It was a standoff. Eventually a highway patrol officer approached sunny to try and broker peace sunny told the officer he just wanted his men back and would gladly pay the twenty five dollars for their bail. The officer took them to the portable chief of police. But the chief didn't think twenty five dollars was enough his counter-offer fifty thousand dollars. Sunny exploded in anger. He was trying to play by the rules. And these cops were trying to take advantage of him. Sensing a confrontation. The highway patrol officer scrambled to get the chief to agree to a low a bail sunny and the chief agreed to fifty dollars. And the Hells Angels. Pass the hat to raise the money. It seemed like a fair resolution. Yet by the time sunny and the bikers finally left town. They found another row of cops waiting for them. Ready to pull over any angel. Whose bike wasn't up to code and as a group devoted to customizing their rides. This was damn near all of them. This was the last Straw for Sonny. They were done being stopped by the cops. He ordered his men to outrun the police and they did in just one night sonny. Berger proved himself the undisputed leader of the hells angels and the baddest of all the outlaw bikers in California.
