Running head: Infiltrating the Mongols “Infiltrating the Mongols Motorcycle Gang” Gabriel A. Chavarria Bert Ouderkirk AJS 275 11/19/07 Abstract Special Agent William Queen was a veteran law enforcement agent with a passion for motorcycles and a dislike for paperwork. Then one day when a “confidential informant” contacted his boss at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms, offering to take an agent inside the San Fernando Valley chapter of the Mongols Motorcycle Gang. Queen quickly seized this opportunity, not realizing that he was beginning the most extensive undercover operation inside an outlaw motorcycle gang in the history of the ATF. This paper gives various details as to what took place during the span of this two and a half year operation which uncovered the Mongols Motorcycle Club as an organized crime group and yielded 53 convictions of its members. Infiltrating the Mongols Modern “outlaw motorcycle gangs” (OMG’s) are just as sophisticated, organized and dangerous as traditional Mafia families.
The wave of violence that we see in the film is inaccurately represented according to Richard White, It’s Your Misfortune and None of My Own where he states that “during the peak years of cattle towns, the average number of homicides was only 1.5 a year from each town.” However, the films representation is the opposite since the narrator depicts murder rates higher than modern day Los Angeles or New York and the opening scene is of the film is a gun fight which results in murders including a catholic priest which is caused by the cowboys. Another example of this exaggerated violence occurs in both films. In My Darling Clementine when Earp and his brother first arrive in town an Indian man named Indian Charlie is

Justin Harrison Mrs. Chlarson Period 1 7, December, 2011 The Australian Robin Hood “It will always pay a rich man to be liberal with the poor and make as little enemies as he can, for he shall find if the poor is on his side he shall loose nothing by it”(Kelly 55). such words sound like those of a well taught scholar or high ranking official, but they were written by two humble outlaws sitting at a campfire, although, they were no ordinary outlaws. Ned Kelly committed many terrible crimes throughout his lifetime, yet his courageous, defiant attitude towards unfair authorities made him an early national hero of Australia.

Jack the Ripper The definition of a serial killer is usually an individual who has killed three or more people over a time period of more than a month. Between the murders there have been what is called a down time, "a cooling of period". Often there is a sexual element involved in the killings and the offenders usually act alone and the victims often have something in common such as race, age or similar appearance. I have always been fascinated by the psychology of criminals and chose to write about Jack the Ripper because he does not quite fit the typical profile of a serial killer yet he is one of the most infamous serial killer to this day. The fact that his identity is unknown makes it even more interesting.
Al Capone’s greatest crime was the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre on February 14, 1929. Four of Capone’s men entered a garage at 2122 N Clark Street.

Al Capone’s alibi was that he was in Florida.
