HA ruling details intimidation tactics of Kelowna full
Supreme Court ruling released this week demonstrates the viciousness with which some Hells Angels attempt to intimidate members of the community.
We learned last month that Kelowna full patch Joseph Bruce Skreptak received a 26 month jail sentence for aggravated assault after attacking the father of a teen he believed had robbed him.
Skreptak hit the man "multiple times causing serious injuries to his face. A series of photographs were marked as Exhibit 1, and show the outward appearance of the injuries. In fact, and not readily visible from photographs, there were multiple fractures of facial bones requiring reconstructive surgery."
"As a result of being beaten about the face, [the man] sustained significant facial trauma. The left side of his face was pushed in and he had a fracture to the zygomatic bone above the left eye as well as a depressed fracture of the orbital rim below the left eye. Both fractures required reconstructive surgery. Jensen remained in hospital for a number of days before he could be operated on," Betton said.
All the damage was done within 15 or 20 minutes, the judge said, adding that the pandora rings jewellery victim was told not to call police.
Skreptak lawyer provided glowing reference letters and details of his work history for the judge and said his client's membership in the HA was irrelevant.
But the Crown said that the link to the biker gang was part of the intimidation used during the encounters with the two youth over the missing jewelry, as well as during the assault.
Betton concluded the HA membership was relevant because the two youth knew Skreptak was pandora online uk in the biker gang and because he had warned the victim not to call police.
"The second area and manner in which his membership is relevant is in respect of the accused character. This particular event is what I think could simply be said many members of the public might expect from somebody who is a member of the Hells Angels," Betton said. "That expectation and that belief among the public, in fairness, would be based price for a pandora bracelet on stereotyping, unconfirmed, unproven understandings, even, some might argue, urban myths.
"Even if he is not engaged in violent or criminal conduct, and I have no basis upon which to conclude that he has been through his membership with the Hells Angels, it is an organization that, as I have said, has an obvious reputation, and no person who has only the positive attributes that are described in the reference letters would see, even if they were not engaged in criminal activity, a benefit or anything positive from such a membership with that organization. It is, as I have concluded, a negative feature in terms of his general character," he said.
Skreptak is a former member of the East End Chapter who was one of the first to move to Kelowna to set up a chapter of the notorious biker gang there. That chapter formally opened in the summer of 2007. government civil case to get the Kelowna clubhouse forfeited as an instrument of criminal activity.
As well, Skreptak awaits trial on several firearms counts related to theseizure of weapons in Salmon Arm a few weeks after the Kelowna assault.
At one point in time, maybe early 90s the EEHA were the top of the food chain. They had beat the small Russian crew who thought they were tough. They didn back down when they kicked bindy out of the clubhouse. Then like a hockey team who players get older they started to decline. They split up cuz some guys were getting squeezed out by other chapters that were smart enough to start tapping into younger stronger members. Tey started to spend too much time trying to make sure no one sullied the ruthless reputation of their club. They aren the young guys they used used to be and they started to make huge mistakes. Why would SKREPY go him self? Don these guys have legions of half wits on steroids silver and gold pandora bracelet to do their dirty work. Nope he just had to let it be known you don mess with the HA. Maybe they need to learn what biggie said move in silence I was at the Kelowna Father Day car show an looked over and saw a HA tattoo on a guys arm, the guy wasn a bad looking dude 30s maybe, steroids? Probably. The cliche sleeve tattoos but he wasn acting tough he was buying his kid a lemonade and having a picnic with his family. He wasn wearing colours or even a support shirt he was actin like a normal guy like the rest of us.
You are right, the 90s were their glory days. I won deny that. Around the time Bindy Johal died though a bunch of other groups were emerging that most likely (not saying they do) associate with a very high level organized crime group. Do you really think the HA could take on a group like the triads? Not a freaking chance. Reading that e pandora thing that Kim wrote was cringeworthy. If the HA were at one time powerful what the heck happened to make them look so embarrassing in E Pandora?
I can hate on the HA too much though because reading about the UN trying to get the Bacons was even more grating. It really hard giving any of these guys credit from all of these embarrassing stories. The real people that run things don even make the headlines or care to just like the HA in the 90s. You can even find much info about them during that period. Now they are just sad to read about.
I still say the HA are dominate than the Triiads. Triads are just quiet how they handle there business thats all. Give them that A group netted to there own kind i guess. Just because you don hear much bust coming from that end doesn nessarily mean there in control. Cops are wanting to take them down. It just out of hand. It time to crack them down and make arrest. There world wide connected.
You definitely won hear triads roaring in the streets in there cars sending intimidation. It not what there about or stand for.
Just a different approach on handling business I guess.
The wetbacks from Mexico took over transportation after coke god Escobar got him self hinted and dead The spicks to over San diago and Houston With cooking people in 45 gallon drums and hacking off heads
An now they are here. Been here for awhile Unless a triad can control geography or coco plants start crowing in rice patties
The Mexican cartels control te blow They kill anyone They collect debts Hope fully larry guy shot in kelowna then busted Montreal paid for those lost couple tons of YAO His brothers are gonna stArt to get 50 millimetre rounds blown through their clubhouse What left of EE be found headless on their fat boys
And the coke freaks in the town can start getting good dope rather than smoking and shooting and snorting lavimole the farm animal de wormer.
