Biker Gangs. How Many? How to Reduce the Threat?

Some questions  motorcycle gangs came to mind after the Waco shoot-out.

How many are there? What uis the appeal?  How can the public be protected?

Wikipedia was of no help:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlaw_motorcycle_club

When I was a kid lots of deprived kids belonged to gangs and I suppose the reasons are still relevant:

  • They were mixed-up teenagers
  • They enjoyed the ‘all for one’ ethos’
  • They, as poor people, felt excluded from the mainstream.

The Waco  people are quite different.

They are middle-aged and wealthy enough  to buy a  Harley.

Perhaps one of these’oh so wise’ politicians like Hillary or Ted Cruz can come up with a workable soilution to this menace.
