9781593454067: Biker Gangs and Organized Crime

This book examines the reported criminal behavior of the entire spectrum of 1 per cent biker clubs and members. It identifies the clubs whose members have been involved in criminal behavior and classifies their behaviors as individual, group, or club- sponsored/condoned behavior. While other books examine the criminal exploits of one or more of what are called the 'Big Five' biker clubs because of their size and sophistication, or the sensational crimes of lesser known 1 per cent biker clubs or club members, this book pays attention to the criminal activities of individuals, groups and chapters of other clubs as well. The book is based on journalistic accounts and autobiographies of former and present members of biker clubs, academic/scholarly works, law enforcement/government reports, articles from newspapers and biker websites, and a content analysis of federal and state court cases regarding bikers and motorcycle clubs. The text is enhanced with numerous photos and figures.
