Hells Angels

Sues Young Jeezy Over Skull Logo

Hells No You Don't!!!

The Hells Angels don't need baseball bats and chains to protect their image -- all they need is a good lawyer, which is exactly what they got to sue rapper Young Jeezy's clothing line ... claiming Jeezy's company jacked their iconic Death Head logo.

The fabled motorcycle club filed the lawsuit against 8732 Apparel for essentially reprinting the Hells Angels logo on jackets and hats ... and selling them for a massive profit.

The 8732 design isn't an exact rip-off ... but Hells Angels claims it's close enough to confuse people.

HA claims 8732 has already earned substantial profits from the bootleg merch, and the motorcycle club wants every last cent of that money.

The club is now suing for unspecified damages. It also wants a judge to force 8732 to stop selling anything with an HA-looking logo on it. Calls to 8732 were not returned.

FYI, this isn't the first time the Hells Angels went ballistic over someone stealing their logo -- you'll recall, they sued Rob Dyrdek's clothing company and MTV last year for the same thing.

Thats Gross I can see the reservoir Dogs MC play that game with the Bishops MC now thats some real gay ass acting gangs those Bitchs are like the USA hells angels pets . LOL they wear little hammers I think that show they have been nailed by a USA hells angels all their gay ass sex life should not be displayed on their gay gang jackets ROTFLMAO if these freaks did not raise money for registered sex offenders and child porn hells angels super stars they would be funny as hell to laugh at But all the money they give the hells angels for sex offenders takes alot of the fun away and leaves the serious problem that politicians have to start acting on. The way things are going with Hollywood men falling for hells angels the future generations are going to think Sex offender hells angels are cool and men that raise money for sex offenders are cool. We got to stop this freak affair Hollywood men and some media men are having with USA hells angels members.

Let me tell ya all something Most of USA hells angels victims have been women and children and
Men that may have dated a USA hells angels at one time and wanted to end their relation ship .

I don't think other then the young Black man the USA hells angels cowardly killed at a concert 1 million years ago and looking at the film after he put his gun down it took the whole flock to beat him with sticks before stabbing him to death.

I Really don't think USA hells angels have enough nerve to attack a Full grown adult black Male.

That Black Guy the hells angels killed at the concert was still a child 18 years old is hardly a man . This Rapper in this picture would probably spit On USA hells angels like I do and they will punk out .

USA hells angels cannot take care of Business USA hells angels try to intimidate people Thats why gay groupies gangs follow the USA hells angels they like to use their hells angels name to intimidate people so they feel powerful.

USA hells angels are just a gang of punks who take registered sex offenders and anyone that will stand by them with the same cowardly mind set .

Careful; the Hells Angels are known for removing unauthorized tattoos with a sander. Kanye fans out walking around with that merch are going to get their butts kicked.

Now Young Cheesy or however you would like to describe yourself the saddest thing is that you decided to copy, according to your supporters on here, a white supremacist gangs back patch and get your fellow black men to wear it, making them possible targets not only for the Hells Angels who I hold the up most love and respect for BUT also young black American Gangbangers too who might mistake them for the racist you think they are! DOH

The hells angels history goes back along way and I have known them for a considerable time and I can assure you that they are neither racist or the other things that you have called them.

as far as paedophile's goes, I am presuming you are talking about the Hells Angel that got fitted up by the Feds.

maybe if you spent less time building up imaginary bull**** in your head and more time researching the Hells Angels you would actually discover that maybe you have something in common.

both young black americans and the Hells Angels get treated like **** because the government and the powers that be have it in for you.

that doesnt mean that Young Cheesy should go around ripping off a design, what would you do if someone went around ripping of your tags!!

mica pearson    

the thing that I would probably call into question is this..

have all of you considered the possibility that both Young Cheesy and the government are conspiring to cause exactly this kind of outcome.

blacks against whites, hells angels against black gangsters, hip hop against rock.

your all being played.

the best outcome for this would be to settle it out of court, join together and **** the government.

Not many of you know what you are talking about. The death head is a legal registered trademark of the HAMC. Now I know you are prob all experts on MC's because you watch a few episodes of Sons of Whatever, but reproducing the death head is the same exact thing as if I bottled brown soda and used the Pepsi logo, or Coca-Cola logo. You can't do it. They are very smart to go after the money, although this young jizzy fellow has prob spent all his money on gold jewelry, cars, his posse, and keepin it real.

Part of a new paper story Saturday, 10 May 2008
Russell Sinkis former Hells Angel ordered to be on supervision for three years
Russell Sinkis, 37, of 45 Oxford St., Auburn, was also ordered to be on supervision for three years after release from prison for his conviction for being a felon in possession of ammunition. The charge stems from Mr. Sinkis shooting a gun — with which he was not charged because, unlike the ammunition, it could not be proven to have crossed state lines — at the Boston Gun Range in Worcester on Oct. 26, 2006.
Judge F. Dennis Saylor IV said there were conflicting pressures on his decision to sentence Mr. Sinkis to 4 years and 9 months. The judge credited the argument of defense lawyer James J. Gribouski that illegal possession of ammunition by a felon is less serious when it is at a gun range rather than on the street or in his home, and less serious than possession of a gun. While the crime is not relatively serious, the judge said the nature of the defendant is another matter. Judge Saylor noted that restraining orders have been taken out against Mr. Sinkis by three different women. Judge Saylor said Mr. Sinkis beat a man while the man’s children were in the next room and that one of Mr. Sinkis’ victims was a 78-year-old woman.
He had been a motorcycle gang member and his most recent employment was as a disk jockey at a strip club, Judge Saylor noted. While Mr. Sinkis said that he has severed ties with his friends and his past, Judge Saylor said that was not entirely voluntary, since he has been in jail and “his fellow members of the Hells Angels kicked him out of the club.” Judge Saylor said that Mr. Sinkis’ parents, who were in court yesterday, are supportive, but that is insufficient to reduce his sentence.
Judge Saylor said he did not take into account two charges of statutory rape, which are still pending against him in Dudley District Court. A hearing is scheduled Monday in that court on charges that he had sex in 2004 and 2005 with a 14-year-old girl, a family friend that he had hired to be a babysitter when he lived in Webster.
After much bad publicity hells angels finally got rid of him. seems some one had the first nine stories in bridgewater deleted
