'Sons of Anarchy' Actor

Motorcycle Booth Raided By Cops

EXCLUSIVE

0426-rusty-sons-of-anarchy-02
One of the SAMCRO bikers on "Sons of Anarchy" had a close encounter with cops and a rival gang Friday in Nevada ... when police feared the actor might pull a Jax and start beating ass.

Rusty Coones -- a known Hells Angel member -- was running his clothing company booth at the famous Laughlin River Run biker rally ... when a ton of officers descended and shut him down.

Cops also closed the booths on either side -- run by a member of rival gang Vagos Motorcycle Club -- police feared violence between the 2 groups.

Vago member's lawyer Stephen Stubbs says the irony is ...  both sides were getting along just fine ... and the shut down only caused the two companies to lose money.

Time to start smuggling guns again ("Sons of Anarchy" joke.)

The government is going to regret this kind of stuff eventually. Stuff like this brings clubs closer together. Do you think they want an alliance between all the rival clubs? Hell no.

"police feared violence between the 2 groups."

So they shut down 2 businesses?
There was no crime committed, they were conducting business yet they 'Shut them Down' ??

See how the Police and government keep taking and molesting our rights?

The Police should have to Pay for whatever business those two lost.

Unreal.

The Truth    

The only fear resulting in these two clubs in the same vicinity is for the Cops & Feds... it is in the ****-suckin' pigs best interest if they don't get along.... more hostility and violence portrayed by these clubs (true or federally fabricated) equals more $$$ for law enforcement to waste and laws are more easily passed regarding clubs. Look at what is happening in Australia...3 or more people associated (means don't have to be members) with a club are seen together in public, 6 months automatic jail time ( in solitary confinement!!!). Australia Bikie Laws...coming soon to the U.S. Save the Patch! FTW FTF

That's bs. The cops didn't fear any violence breaking out nor did the public and the cops only agenda is to make it seem to the public that the HA's are unstable, brutal gang members who shouldn't be on the streets.. The bikers had every right to be there selling their merchandise, especially since there was no tension between anyone.. The cops hope to create fear and intolerance in communities since it's their hopes of shutting the club down completely. ACAB

I was there actually working the lucky 7 booth which for everybody's information is not a vago Company nor is it an affiliate company I just happens to be that the owner just so happens to be in an MC that this happened.....Rusty and Mike both believed there was no tension between either booths and especially not between either club to warrant any discriminatory action of any kind taken by the so called authorities in the area especially after Rusty point blank told officers . He would leave without any problems just to alleviate any so called possible problems but to please leave Lucky 7 alone because they are a family oriented business and good people and the authorities said thats not gonna happen
