Apparently the shooting happened about 3:30 AM on I-95. Here's an exerpt from the article:

One of the bikers, Roger Mariani, 61, of Stratford, pulled over before realizing he had been shot in the upper torso, Vance said. He later died at the Yale-New Haven Hospital.

What a shame. Apparently another guy was winged.


None of this would happen if there were no guns.



EDIT: The entire article from Comcast home page is:

1 hour ago

WEST HAVEN, Conn. - A motorist opened fire on a group of Hell's Angels motorcyclists along Interstate 95, killing one and injuring another, police said.

The bikers were traveling near West Haven around 3:30 p.m. Sunday when they were shot, said State Police spokesman Sgt. J. Paul Vance.

Police were considering a number of possible motives including road rage, and authorities across the Northeast were alerted to look for a green GMC sport-utility vehicle with Florida plates, Vance said. He said police believe four men were in the vehicle.

One of the bikers, Roger Mariani, 61, of Stratford, pulled over before realizing he had been shot in the upper torso, Vance said. He later died at the Yale-New Haven Hospital.

The injured biker, Paul Carrol, 37, of Bridgeport, was grazed by a bullet, treated at the hospital and released, Vance said.

Members of the motorcycle club gathered at Yale-New Haven Hospital Sunday night, prompting police to station officers there to keep order, though police spokeswoman Bonnie Winchester said there were no incidents at the hospital.

The investigation snarled highway traffic for hours, bringing cars to a standstill on Interstate 95. Vance urged anyone who witnessed the shooting or anything suspicious in the area to call police.

Judging from the article, he didn't do anything wrong.

The "article" was basically a gangbanger's side of the story. I suspect there is way more to this story.

The Hell's Angels are not a motorcycle CLUB, the Hell's Angels are a motorcycle GANG.

Motorcycle CLUBs are groups of accountants, lawyers and IT guys who go cruising together on Sunday afternoons. Motorcycle GANGs roam the highways dealing drugs, robbing liquor stores and selling illegal guns.

I'm not going to shed any tears over a dead Hell's Angel.

You do realize that to be admitted in this GANG, you must commit some sort of terrible
crime. That is why they have never been infiltrated by a undercover cop

Tolerate illegal behavior from your fellow "club" members, and you risk being painted with the same broad brush. If he really hadn't done anything, it's unfortunate. If he had, well...you wear the gang colors, you take yer chances of some rival whacking you.

From my understanding it is usually:

- This particular club is at war with another one... and shooting occurred. Guy I know, got the same serving of hospitality for just this.

-They were riding in the wrong territory... that of another club while wearing their colors.

Isnt being a bike gang member FUN kiddies?

A friend of mine was it the trafic jam that the incident caused, she said that 3-4 bikers were weving in and out of trafic like a buch of idiots, when she saw the resulting trafic she assumed that one of the bikers wrecked, she didn't find out that one had been shot till this morning.

This is my theory:

bikers cut of a buch of city thugs runnin some home grown down from conneticut, if said thugs were black then some finges flew, follwed by some racial slurs may be they swerv at each other, then thug starts popin off shots, and the world has 1 less doushbag in it.

There are a fair number of "bikers" rideing around on any decent weather weekend day in my state. I am pretty out of touch since my mid to late 70's ricer rideing stint but from what I know most of these HD rigs represent a big pile of money. Gets me to wondering what the percentage breakdown is. I think the biggest group is doctors,attorneys,bankers and other succesfull guys who have the money to spend on expensive toys and choose to dress the bad guy part .Next group pecentage wise would be the somewhat hard core guys who have also become somewhat succesfull in life and chose to continue to ride.Of course there is a percentage that are dirtballs all wound up in all kinds of rotten stuff. I always assumed most of the real dirtballs manage to wreck their own lives along with all the other family members and passerbys that they mess up as well .
When I rode my rice grinder (1973 Z1b-handeled like shit but the fastest thing on wheels you could buy at the time $1950 out the door!) I put lots of miles on it and came across lots of HD riders. I helped some of them out-breakdowns and such,and some of them helped me out some.I can't say any of them ever gave me a hard time,but then I rode away from any of them I felt I wanted to without any touble. Then again I never spent long hours at many biker bars or stupid stuff like that .
Guys on bikes are like anybody else-you can't tell the book by the cover!

And the Outlaws are complete pieces of shit too. No different than the Angels....just different vests.

Fuck the Angels, fuck the Outlaws....and fuck any other dirty, violent pieces of shit that form gangs to victimize others.
