Just who are the Hells Angels – a club of rebel bikers or a gang of crooks? In 2002 the Federal Government launches Operation Black Biscuit, which is meant to answer this question once and for all. The plan is to create a fake motorcycle gang that will ride alongside the Hell Angels and befriend them. But the undercover bikers get too close – and have to join the club. They are now at the beck and call of the Hells Angels and under extraordinary stress.
The Hells Angels Motorcycle Club (HAMC) is a worldwide one-percenter motorcycle gang and organized crime syndicate whose members typically ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. In the United States and Canada, the Hells Angels are incorporated as the Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation. Their primary motto is "When we do right, nobody remembers. When we do wrong, nobody forgets".
Both the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Canadian Security Intelligence Service classify the Angels as one of the "big four" motorcycle gangs, contending that members carry out widespread violence, drug dealing, trafficking in stolen goods, and extortion. Members of the organization have continuously asserted that they are only a group of motorcycle enthusiasts who have joined to ride motorcycles together, to organize social events such as group road trips, fundraisers, parties, and motorcycle rallies.
