Nice to hear you out how Big Bad Jerry out-machoed the Hell's Angels,
but I suspect you know very little about how they operated. And what
happened to people to served on juries against them. I had a run-in with
the two next door, who are probably still doing time for Murder One,
and if I did what I felt and was almost ready to do at the time, I would
still be dealing with it if I was still around. Did you ever tell an
Angel he was a wimp in public?
