Reuters.com news agency published this deansguide article May 31, 2008

In a very surprising development, and one that has many angles, a 20 year old Marin county woman was arrested for the murder of Hells Angel William Mclean in a drive-by shooting on bustling 101 Freeway this past week.

Law enforcement officials arrested the woman, “under tight secrecy”, last Thursday without releasing any information. She was charged with the murder on Friday. The suspect is being held at the Marin County jail under heavy guard in anticipation of retaliation by prisoners or outside forces.

No further details have been released and the investigation into the murder is ongoing.

There Will Be Hell To Pay: Victim of Drive-By Shooting Related To Hells Angels Chapter President

New details about the hit on a Hells Angel member have been released. The victim was William Crompton Maclean, the brother-in-law of Sonoma County chapter president, Raymond Foakes. Maclean, 25 years old, was shot and killed on Highway 101 north in Marin County.

Foakes was one of the participants in the now infamous Laughlin, Nevada brawl with the Mongols that killed 3 Hells Angels and 1 Mongol before order was restored.

In a spooky, if not ominous development, one of the newspaper writers covering the events surrounding this murder wrote a very short notice for a crime in Santa Rosa, California two days ago. A man was found shot to death in his truck while the passenger was allowed to walk away from the incident without a scratch. No names were printed in the article and no description was provided of the truck.

Although this is most likely a separate incident, it would interesting to know more details about the murder MO, the murder victim, and the vehicle he was found shot to death in.

Marin County Law Enforcement Officials

In a recent statement, officials said they are beefing up security for this weekend’s Hells Angel Poker Run which will begin from the Golden Gate Harley Davidson in Corte Madera with a final destination of Stafford Lake in Novato.

Show of Force

Officials predict that this ride will be a show of force with expectations of as many as 200 riders participating in the run. It will also be a ride of respect to honor their fallen Angel.

Realtor Marketing Meetings: The Most Important Networking Event You Can Attend

One of the most effective methods to market listings, meet like minded professionals, search for affiliates, hear industry news-updates, and build last relationships is the Realtor Marketing Meeting. Here in the San Francisco Bay Area, most counties have at least one weekly meeting; with many counties having 2 or 3 participating associations that hold separate meetings.

Profile

In the last five years, I have attended hundreds of breakfast marketing meetings sponsored by Realtor Marketing Associations. My schedule was filled with four morning meetingsTuesday through Friday. After these meetings, the associations sponsored broker open house tours where we could caravan together and see upwards of 15 locations. It is a chance to network with other Realtors and see their properties.

My Favorite Meetings

1. Walnut Creek aka Contra Costa Association of Realtors: Tuesday mornings from 7:45 to 9:45. This is one of the most powerful meetings available with Realtors and affiliates coming from as far away as a 50 mile radius. The attendance level was 200-350. Many prominent Realtors, mortgage brokers, and independents attend this meeting faithfully. This meeting is held at the Concord Centre a old but huge meeting hall reminiscent of your high school auditorium.

2. Los Gatos aka Silicon Valley Association of Realtors: Wednesday mornings 8:00 to 9:30. This meeting is the best Association meeting in Silicon Valley (Penninsula) in my opinion. The power broker quotient is high with very prominent brokers and long time Realtor luminaries, like English royalty, dot the landscape. This meeting held at the Willow Street Pizza restaurant has, easily, the greatest breakfast spread of any meeting for only $5 and the most hilarious host in big Michael.

*Note: This meeting was where I received the tip, ahead of the press at the time, that the Ed Okun 1031 Tax Group scandal had just hit. 1031 Advance in San Jose had just closed it’s doors and my “contact” put me onto the story that day.

3. San Ramon aka Realtor’s Marketing Association: Thursday mornings from 8:30-9:45. This meeting is powerful like the Walnut Creek meeting but on a much smaller scale. Attendance runs between 50-85 but again there are a number of Real Estate broker owners, managers, and powerful agents. The beautiful people quotient at this meeting makes it look like a casting call from the 1980’s Dynasty series–fun people watching.

4. Pleasanton aka Valley Marketing Association: This meeting is held Fridays from 8:30-9:30 at Tommy T’s Comedy Club. The venue itself is special because it has a wonderful stage and the best tech gadgets for multi-media presentations. The attendance here is 80-150 with many luminaries coming from Livermore, Dublin, and farther outbound. Information is fresh and the speakers list in most cases is top shelf presenters. John Harper, he of theharperteam blog fame, is one of the long time attendees adding substance to this group. It is a fun meeting and a social event!

5. Fremont aka Tri-City Marketing Meeting: This meeting is held on Thursdays from 8:00-10:00 in a huge banquet room of the Golden Peacock Chinese restaurant a cavern of a space. The crowd is warm and diverse in cultural experiences. Attendance runs between 120-175 per meeting. One of the greatest drawings aka lottos of any meeting, I won the number in one meeting and walked out with $175. This is a more difficult meeting to break into as many Realtors and affiliates are long time partners and have their own cliques.

Details Trickle In On Hell’s Angel Execution In Northern California

The latest news about the recent drive-by shooting death of a Hell’s Angel member, on crowded Highway 101 north, has begun to slowly come out. Here is what we know so far according to media sources.

Details So Far

1. The victim was shot while riding in a white Chevy truck; approximate time 8:15pm Saturday night

2. The Hells Angels were traveling to Sonoma County, up 101 north, after attending the funeral of Angel Julian Serrano in Daly City

3. The Shooter’s vehicle described as a red SUV may have been a Dodge Durango

4. The shooting happened between Tiburon Blvd in Mill Valley and the Paradise Dr. exit in Corte Madera

5. The police are “pretending” (my words) that they don’t know whether this shooting was a random act of violence or a hit.

Commentary: Give me a freaking break! Anybody stupid enough to take a random shot at a group of Hells Angels riding in formation behind a truck is absolutely crazy. That is HIGHLY unlikely.

6. The Shooter’s vehicle exited 101 and escaped. . . IJ “It was unclear whether the other Hells Angels members chased the vehicle and obtained a license plate number, but none was provided to investigators.”

Commentary: Are the cops kidding? Do they really think that if the Angels ran down a plate number they would hand it over to the cops?

“Did He Really Say That Quote of the Day” : IJ “We’re hoping that the members of the club (81) will be open and honest and provide as much information as possible.” Yes and I am hoping that Santa Claus will land on my roof and deliver a big bag of cash on Christmas Day.

7. An unnamed law enforcement agency confiscated the guest sign-in book at the funeral parlor and took surveillance photos of the funeral attendees

The Real Truth at Altamont?

Update: California Hell’s Angel Shot On 101–Could This Signal A Biker War?

As first reported, new details have emerged about the drive-by shooting of a Hell’s Angel last night which resulted in the death of the victim. Originally thought to be riding a Harley in a pack of Angels heading north on Highway 101, the victim was actually riding in a white Chevrolet pickup truck that was leading the pack north.

Bikers have been known to use a war wagon that carries bike parts, “supplies”, and other equipment that the bikers do not have room to carry or do not want to carry on their person or bike.

Speculation circulating today is that the shooter(s) were traveling in a red SUV and that the SUV may have “damage to it’s windows” according to CHP authorities.

The Next Move?

Worse yet is the fact that these types of open executions are often followed by retaliation and the spark that ignites a full scale biker war. Northern California long the stronghold of the Hell’s Angels, has been invaded recently by the Angel’s most hated enemy the Mongols. The Mongols were the Angel’s adversary in the now legendary Laughlin, Nevada casino mayhem that included shooting and stabbing victims.
