Feds go after biker gang members... by claiming the rights to their logos

 Prosecutors are attempting to break up one of America’s most violent motorcycle gangs - Mongols Nation - by claiming rights to their logo

 (Idiots. They'll have another logo ready to go in case the suit is successful.  Sometimes I wonder if the government's average IQ is even 80.)

Prosecutors are attempting to break up America’s most violent motorcycle gangs by claiming rights to their logos.

If the government is successful, it will become illegal for a member of the 600-strong notorious Mongols Nation gang to wear its trademarked patch – a black-and-white image of 12th century conqueror Genghis Khan riding a motorbike in a pair of sunglasses.

Police sources say that removing gang logos diminishes the gang’s power and identity.

A source told Fox News: ‘It not just stripping them of their identity, or robbing them of a recruiting tool, it's taking the star off their helmet. The logo itself furthers a criminal enterprise.’

  1. Won't work.....there have already been court cases where bikers were told to
    take off their colors and refused on 1A rights. The courts sided with the bikers.
    If a biker wants to wear a vest with the word 'Mongols' on the back he can do
    so and it's a protected right. Engaging in commerce using such a trademark
    may be dicey....we'll see how that court battle ends, but simply wearing colors is
    a protected right.

    1. Just a waste of taxpayer's money, but that's nothing new.

  2. "Feds claiming rights to Bikers' Logos??" This is a "Joke??....Right???" You Gotta' Be Kidding* Me!!

      Oh to ride with the "Screaming Gypsy Bandits" and the "Hog Ridin' Fools" again on those thrilling steeds of yesteryear when Men were Men and our Ladies were Proud of it!!!!!
      Got Iron??,

  4. Mongols would make a good IRS logo.

  5. Wag the Dog
    This is billed as a major threat to the U.S. because of Bikers criminal enterprises?
    How about our inner cities melting down multiple cities buring by the hands of "Obama's" sons. With no talk of ISIS coming across the border (or other terror groups) or worse yet domestic jihadi's.
    I'm not s biker - but even the blind see they are scapegoating these biker groups.
    I also heard a complaint from blacks the bikers weren't tear gassed - no shit they were shot.
    We've become a nation of morons.

  6. This is a joke right?

    The whole concept of a 1% is that they live on the fringe of society --- not being a sheep like 99.9% of the rest of the population.

    We are all bikers now.

    1. Indeed we are and I made your comment a separate post. Thanks.
