The Hells Angels are arguably the world’s largest one-percenter motorcycle club. In the US, they are considered one of the “Big Four” of the “one-percenters”. While fans like to call them a one-percenter motorcycle club, law enforcement likes to categorize them otherwise. The U.S. Department of Justice likes to treat them as a “one-percenter outlaw motorcycle gang”. While other enforcement agencies simply call them a “motorcycle gang” or an “organized crime syndicate”.
Whatever the Angels are called, nobody can deny that they’re a force to be reckoned with.
No matter which side of the fence you are, you really don’t want to mess with the Angels. They’ve been around for some 70 years. From their humble beginnings in the suburbs of 1940s Chicago, the club has grown to have a presence across some 56 countries in 5 continents. With close to half a thousand charters and some 2500 members, the Angels are one powerful organization.
Allegations against them are scathing.
From illegal arms trade to drug trafficking, from running prostitution rackets to extortion rackets, the Angels are alleged to be involved in running a whole lot of illegal businesses. Members have been charged, indicted, and even convicted for serious offenses such as arson, murder, kidnapping, and other!
Whatever the Angels are, whatever they are, it’s not easy being them.
