WASHINGTON, D.C. – Hundreds of thousands of heavily armed bikers are set to converge on the nation’s capital this weekend to participate in an end-all turf war on the National Mall. The event is scheduled to coincide with the National Memorial Day Parade which begins at 2 p.m. on Monday, May 25th.
U.S. Capitol Police say there will be an estimated two-hundred thousand guns, knives, billy clubs, pipes, boxcutters, chains, bats, hand grenades and axes in the District this weekend. With such a high concentration of hardened criminals in the nation’s capital, police say any attempts to prevent an altercation will be futile. “Technically, they’re exercising their right to assemble,” Captain Rory Daniels told CNN. Captain Daniels said Capitol police and local law enforcement will create a buffer zone around the National Mall separating the biker gangs from Memorial Day celebrations. “This way everyone is happy,” Daniels said.
Jade Anderson told CNN’s Don Lemon that her husband, who is a member of the Bandidos motorcycle club, plans to avenge the deaths of his “brothers” who were killed outside the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas this week with a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and a hydraulic nail gun. Anderson described her husband as a loving father who is “definitely not a criminal,” and blamed the media for the negative portrayal of motorcycle organizations.
The president of the notorious Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, Bobby “The Fist” Mitchell, spoke with this reporter by phone, saying he is leading a procession of over twenty-three hundred of his roughest and toughest members to Washington to settle a longstanding blood feud with the Bandidos. Mitchell said he plans to eviscerate his rivals and “fill the Reflecting Pool with their blood” before climbing the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to declare victory.
In addition to the Bandidos and Hells Angels, a few of the more notable biker gangs making an appearance in Washington this weekend include the Monglols, the Pagans, the Pennsylvania Warlocks, the Scimitars, and the infamous Sons of Silence. Last but not least are the Cossacks, one of the more violent gangs involved in the bloody shootout that left nine bikers dead and dozens more injured outside a sports bar in Waco, Texas last Sunday.
