1 Dead, 17 Wounded in Cleveland Motorcycle Gang Shootout

 

John Farnham had thoughts about stupid people doing stupid things in stupid places. Case in point . . .

From the Associated Press

At least one person was killed and 17 people were injured when gunfire erupted late Saturday following a fight at a party in Cleveland, Ohio, attended by multiple motorcycle clubs, police said.

A 48-year-old man was found dead with multiple gunshot wounds when Cleveland police officers responded to an address in a neighborhood on the city’s east side at about 11:30 p.m. Police said many other victims left the scene in private vehicles and began to arrive at various hospitals.

Police said they learned there had been a party there party attended by “multiple motorcycle clubs.” A fight broke out and some people were ejected from the party, but they returned firing shots at other people, some of whom fired back.

A total of 18 people, including male and female victims, were shot and treated at various hospitals, authorities said. Injuries range from minor to serious, though police didn’t immediately provide details about the victims or the extent of their injuries.

Police said the case has “multiple shooters” and remains under investigation.

    I doubt anything will come of this. When you’re around people with questionable morals and upbringings this is kind of expected. Then again, I stay out of fights. Nothing good comes from it in a modern world.

    Its not the fight. Its what happens after the fight you need to worry about…

      H’mmm.

      Sometimes, the fight comes for you, whether you like it or not, in places you wouldn’t expect.

      Are you suggesting people should just “give them what they want”, in the hope they won’t hurt you?

      Women should just urinate and vomit on their rapist, or should they fight back with every tool available?

      You can live in a fantasy delusion if you want, fighting in the “modern world” is every bit as relevant as it was in the “old world”.

      I will fight evil if it comes for me…

      Questionable morals?? Really?? First off I question your own morals, and second who are you to judge ones personal morals? Get over yourself.

      I am around countless bike groups all the time, and to tag them all as you have is totally ridiculous! You have not clue what some of these clubs do, and just how far the go to help others! You, who ever you are really need to shut up until you know every club and every clubs value! You made yourself look pretty stupid

        That generally is the case in a majority Caucasian country like the United States. For example, you wouldn’t find a Philipino chick to look exotic if you were a Philipino male. My point is…I’d bang both of them.

  4. avatar MADDMAXX says:

    With Hells Angels, Outlaws, Pagans and Iron Horsemen all claiming territory in Ohio along with a dozen or so smaller local/regional gangs I’m surprised a lot more of this does not happen, especially in Cleveland… Maybe someone is making a power move within one of the Nationals and is bolstering his resume… Nothing looks better on an Outlaws sheet than “killed a Hells Angel” OR vice versa…

      I know, right? Grown men acting like some sort of mutant cross between a 5-year-old and a cave man. Perhaps, they’re less mature than that, who knows. Hey, guys, let’s go shoot people that wear a different color and cross that arbitrary line on a map. That’s logical af, yo. Oh yeah, let’s ride bikes with the best technology that the year 1906 had to offer. And do ALL the meth…

          Kind of like being in the Army, huh…. And I like my old “1906 technology motorcycle” It’s way more comfortable than todays “lay on the gas tank to ride” rice rockets, it’s worth thousands more than a shitty little “disposable” motorcycle and in my world people respect the classics (motorcycles AND cars) so IF you ride, which I doubt, and your choice is some Japanese knockoff that’s cool, at least you ride…..

        Try starting your hot shit modern tech computerized, fuel injected cars/trucks/motorcycles after a magnetic pulse incident… My old 1906 tech will not only start and run but there are a lot of people out there with the knowledge to keep them running (required for ownership).. I also have a 49 jeep p/u 4×4 with a 350 chevy engine w/carb, a points fired ignition and a generator rather than an alternator that is a manual shift and can be roll started…. Good luck doing that with your Prius….

      Actually these were two black biker gangs. Unlikely that either was affiliated with any predominantly white biker gang (Hell’s Angels, Warlocks, Mongols, Pagans, etc).

      This was just more black gang bullshit, except this time they happened to ride motorcycles.

      The outlaw participants in this melee belonged to clubs of a darker variety of biker trash with names like Wheels of Soul, Zulus, & Omens.

        Meh, that’s like a UFC fight with a knockout in the first 20 seconds.

        Cool while it lasts but not worth what you paid and you just hope the next one on the card actually has a fight rather than a one-sided beating.

      2. avatar RGP says:

        I don’t think Antifa would actually show up if they thought anybody was going to fight back.

          It’s not so much Antifa that people should be concerned about. It’s their closely associated https://www.redneckrevolt.org/ Those are the Nazi brownshirts and Communist activists. Antifa are the useful idiots who are set out as bait for the boys with guns.

        You musta missed the last 2 decades where tower city was nearly empty, the flats were closed, and all the industry had moved out.

And that was only since the casinos moved in and began pumping revenue back into the downtown area….

    Who wrote the AP article? Fifth graders working the weekend shift?
    What’s this? “…there had been a party there party attended by…”
    Then, there’s “police responded to an address” So, no one called 911? They just respond to random numbers, not callers.
    Does the author know that quotes used, when not actually quoting someone, means that it’s not really true? Were they quoting the police or a witness or no one?
    The best one, “people were ejected from the party”. I’m picturing people being bounced from big springs or ejected by those human cannons from the circus.
    I’m sure that any of you guys here could write a better article than this AP ding dong did.

    1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      So, no one called 911? They just respond…….

      If it was the Angels clubhouse there was probably a “surveilance” team on site already

      The Address was 30 minutes long and delivered with everything but sobriety and decorum. It was no Gettysburg…

  14. avatar Dude says:

    If only they were limited to buying one gun per month, this never would have happened.

  15. avatar Just a guy says:

    The clubhouse belongs to the Cleveland Lyfers apparently a black MC , by looking at their FB . They appear to be a two, patch club .

    1. avatar Hank says:

      What’s a 2 patch club? If they’re black wouldn’t it be a Tupac club? I don’t get all the retardation surrounding the MC “culture.” I even hate bikers in general, “watch out for motorcycles” then they drive like azzholes as if they owned the road.

      1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

        AND you’re a racist too? As a motorcycle enthusiast I am assuming you are talking about JUST the assholes that zip in and out of traffic and act like they own the road… Know what pisses me off? The assholes in cages that pull out, make lane changes, turn right from the left lane all without even so much as checking for oncoming traffic, looking in a mirror or using a signal. I’ve been riding motorcycles for 60 years and I’ve pretty much seen every kind of asshole in a cage that you can imagine and the worst by far is the asshole with the attitude who “hates ALL bikers” based on the actions of a few immature shitheads showing off for other immature shitheads… I’ve seen more of your kind than I could possibly remember with the exception of two different occaisions when I was nearly killed, one by an ignorant, negligent dumbass who “but officer I didn’t SEE the motorcycle” and one by a stupid, redneck hater much like ALL the other haters of things that frighten them who thought it would be funny to show his buddy how a 650 pound motorcycle handled when it ran into a 3 foot deep ditch at 60 miles per hour… I survived, he spent five years in prison and left the state when he got out…. The Patch thing? 1%ers wear a three piece “patch” most clubs use a one piece but I guess If you are a “club” with multiple chapters in different cities you could wear a bottom rocker with a city on it but that is usually frowned upon by the 1% groups… I have an idea, why don’t you take your stupid little shit show on the road and try out your ignorant “Tupac” joke on that black motorcycle club in Cleveland?.. Let us know how that works out, okay?

    Gangsters with or without motorcycles kill each other all the time. Jeff Cooper, founder of Gunsite, was correct. Just give them guns and plenty of ammo and they will solve their own problems.

    1. avatar Dave says:

      Chicago shows us otherwise. They have plenty of illegal guns, but they still pose a problem.

      1. avatar Paul says:

        No, Chicago doesn’t have enough guns. Not nearly. If every head of household were armed, the violence would dwindle, and quickly. I’m certainly not restricting arms to head of household – but that’s a starting point. When the thugs know that every house has at least one gun behind the door, they’re not nearly so anxious to start a scene. It would be good to give every high school graduate his own pistol at graduation. Male, female, black, white, Mexican, it doesn’t matter. An armed society is a polite society.

        1. avatar Paul says:

          “An armed society is a polite society.” I know unarmed societies far more polite than ours: Japan, South Korea, Iceland, and Luxembourg come to mind.

        2. avatar Old Guy in Montana says:

          Addressed to second Paul:

          I had to laugh when you mentioned Iceland and Japan. Traveled to Iceland a few years ago. You realize that they are the most homogeneous, ethnocentric (racist) group of white people in the world. Visited a child stationed in Japan two years ago…Japan is essentially a homogeneous monoculture (ethnocentric as hell) that does not welcome other ethnicities.

          My spouse (US born child of legal immigrants) did not feel welcome the entire time we were in either country. Our private joke is that “polite” in those countries is a euphemism for “spend lots of money and get the hell out”.

        3. avatar Chris T in KY says:

          to Old Guy in Montana
          You beat me to it on Japan and Iceland. I read about their societies decades ago. They have not changed. A college classmate of mine who served in the Air Force got sent to Iceland. When he arrived they found out he was black. He soon got orders to another assignment. He told me that during WW2 when American soldiers were sent everywhere. Some blacks were assigned to Iceland. Like many american soldiers of all races they had sex with the local women. And children were produced.

          My friend told me that after the war the mix race kids were left out in the freezing weather by the local icelanders. That was how they got rid of people that would contaminate their society.

    We need to Ban Motorcycles so people cant have deadly events like this. Motorcycle guy makes gun guy look bad and motorcycles kill and make alot of noise too. Do we really need them, I mean they arent as important as having a gun are they? Besides, wearing all that black leather is just a prelude for homosexuality.
