Hell's Angels Rampage Finally Over in Ca...

...NADA?!? Gotta say, them outlaw bikers had some fine cribs.

Police wipe Hells Angels off Quebec map

When about 2000 police officers yesterday rounded up 156 Hells Angels and their associates from across the province, what they were really doing was indulging in some belated spring cleaning.

Eight years after police stormed the barricades of the Hells Angels Nomads and swept up 139 outlaw bikers in an unprecedented action that came to be known as Operation Springtime 2001, police finally have finished the job.

The final chapter of the great biker war that from 1994 to 2002 saw 164 murders is about to unfold in a new series of mega trials.

Who'd a' thunk it? (I'd like to think we would have acted on the carnage a little swifter. And I'm sure y'all correct me if I'm wrong.)

I guess it will make room for the South Americans to
take the Hell's Angels place.Damn! another industry
outsourced to the third world.
In California, in the 1970s,if one wanted the best drugs and the most honest exchange of money,
the Hell's Angels were a reliable source.
