'Freeway' Rick Ross

'Freeway' Ricky Ross rose to power in the 80s as the most notorious crack cocaine dealer in United States history. At the height of his empire he was making $3m per day. His nickname Freeway came from Ross owning properties along Los Angeles' Interstate 110. He sold tons of cocaine in New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, and made more than $500m between 1983 and 1984. He was sentenced to life in prison, though the sentence was shortened on appeal.

Ross spent much of his time behind bars studying law. He discovered a legal loophole that would lead to his release in 2009. The appeal found that the three-strikes law had been applied incorrectly and reduced his sentence to 20 years.
Ross was arrested in October 2015 when police discovered $100k in his possession during a traffic stop. Charges were ultimately dropped. Most recently Freeway Rick Ross announced his partnership with a Los Angeles based pot producer. They launched a brand that delivers a "quality, safe, and consistent cannabis experience."

Spaniard sentenced to death in Thailand

Artur Segarra, 38, was convicted of kidnapping and killing David Bernat. A Thai court sentenced him to death for the murder of a fellow Spaniard whose body parts were found in Bangkok's main river.
When he arrived at court he held his hand up to show the words "Luke 23:34" written in ink on his palm. The Bible citation is a reference to Jesus's final words on the cross. Jesus said, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing."

While death sentences are still on the statute books in Thailand it is rare for prisoners to be executed. The last execution was in 2009.

HA Robert Barletta a hitman target

The date is March 30, 2020. Its possible the gunmen didn't recognize Barletta, who was sporting white sneakers, grey pants, a grey long-sleeved shirt and a black baseball cap as he passed the black Audi that had been parked on Ontario Street, just south of Gerard Street, for nearly four hours.

He unlatches the front-yard gate when two armed men spring from the vehicle. The first man gets out of the passenger seat and is holding guns in both hands as he runs toward Barletta. None of the nearly 20 shots fired hit their mark. No one was arrested.
Barletta’s narrow escape shows he has made dangerous enemies. It also raises questions about why cops have been tight-lipped about the incident.

It is said Robert Bartletta has serious problems with rivals in his own group and rivals outside of Hells Angels. Two months ago, police laid more charges against Barletta and seven others, seizing another $24m of assets.

Barletta faces 15 charges including bookmaking, laundering proceeds of crime, fraud over $5,000 and commission of an offence for a criminal organization.

German HA rally to demand freedom

1,000 members and associates of the Hells Angels from across Germany protested in Berlin last week against the government's ban on displaying the group's colours in public.

Protesters rallied on their motorcycles from Biesdorf in East Berlin towards Berlin's Victory Column. At the Brandenburg Gate HA boss Andre Sommer addressed the protesters, dubbing the ban as a serious attack to their fundamental rights of freedom of their association.
Openness is part of a new hellish strategy for the senior rocker boss. "We have been shuting ourselves off from the public for too long," Sommer says.

According to a law passed by the German Federal Parliament in 2017, the Hells Angels are banned from wearing club colours, nor the 'death head' in public.

Hamburg cops also posted on their official Instagram account that they had caught a woman posing for photos on the hood of their car. The post said police had been “amazed” after a resident tipped them off that a “a woman in front of the police station” was “(lolling) on the hood of a patrol car”. Hamburg cops said it was “apparently to take ‘nice photos’” but police later said the “hood was pushed in while posing on the patrol car”.

Pagans expansion in NJ causing angst

Pagans greatly increased recruitment as a result of boss Keith Conan Richter.At public hearings last year, Pagans leaders repeatedly pleaded the fifth. Then, one surprised the panel.

“All I will say is it is not the policy of this club for anybody to engage in any criminal activity,” said Hugo “Zorro” Nieves, national vice president.
Pagans have traditionally been regarded as a whites only club.At Richter's direction, the Pagans 'patched over' smaller gangs, and allowed prospects to pay cash to join. The club also relaxed rules to permit dark-skinned Latinos and some Asians to join, but no Blacks. This has lead to internal strife.

The Pagans were founded in Maryland in 1959. South Jersey has been its stronghold. The gang counts 300 members in 17 chapters throughout the state. Officials said there has been a 50% increase in chapters in New Jersey over the past three years.

Outfit's Sarno deathly fear of Covid-19 - rejected for release

In 2008 the Outlaw-Outfit coalition was busted and Sarno landed back in prison for 25 years.Once high ranking Chicago mobster Mike Sarno claims COVID-19 is threatening his life. A federal judge disagreed and has denied a "compassionate release." In his glory, Sarno was groomed for big things. Even his nickname was changed from 'Fat Boy' to 'Large Guy.' In the early 90s, he went away for racketeering, gambling and extortion. When he got out he developed ties to the Outlaws MC.
Dubbed the 'Double O Alliance,' the Outfit-Outlaw co-op bombed a videogame company. C&S Coin Operated Amusements had been cutting in on the group's illegal video poker racket.

Outlaw clubhouses in metro Chicago were raided, with numerous weapons including a live grenade, police badges, a bulletproof vest and a stun gun being seized. "The Large Guy" ordered the Outlaws to bomb C&S and wiretaps sunk them all.

Sarno's weight is being used against him according to his lawyer. The judge said that being obese doesn't mean Sarno is especially susceptible to coronavirus and shouldn't result in freedom.
