It intended convincing a jury to simply accept the idea biker gang works at the comparable precept as a pirate send — even the cook dinner understands what their universal target is. The “biker trials” introduced out informants on either side of the clash, who, for various purposes had became at the gangs that they had formerly sworn loyalty to. Their stories printed the boldness of the Nomads of their pursuit of a monopoly over Quebec’s unlawful drug exchange.
