Out Bad is a true story about motorcycle outlaws and modern American police. It begins with the painstakingly assembled, never before told story of the murder of a Mongols Motorcycle Club member named Manuel Vincent “Hitman” Martin. Martin was shot off his motorcycle on the Glendale Freeway in Los Angeles about 2 a.m. on October 8, 2008. Initial reports alleged that Martin had been murdered by the Hells Angels and that he died as part of an ongoing, “furious feud” between the two groups. The truth behind the murder is much more interesting and disturbing than that. Martin died on the final day of a three-year-long, undercover investigation of the Mongols by the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. The ATF called it “Operation Black Rain.” Both Black Rain, and the federal prosecution that followed, were so cynically unfair and corrupt that some Mongols still believe that Martin was actually murdered by government agents. Together, the investigation and the prosecution probably cost $150 million. The initial press coverage of the case was manipulated by the ATF. News of the subsequent legal wrangling was virtually non-existent because the Department of Justice wanted to keep the case as secret as possible. Out Bad, draws on numerous public and confidential sources including numerous sources within the Mongols, the Hells Angels and the ATF to accurately reveal what really happened. Out Bad is a startling ride down a dark road nobody yet knows. Here’s your ticket. Climb on. There ain’t no seatbelt.
Reviews about Out Bad (7):
Lbe
A disorganized ramble. The author clearly believes a miscarriage of justice has occurred, and that [sorta] innocent men were pressured into confessions. But this reader (who devours books by and about outlaw bikers) found that this effort to create an understandable explanation of the miscarriage instead is a lot of disconnected pieces with not compelling smoking gun or even any "aha" moments. It does contain some interesting "day in the life" stories. And it does correctly show that the ATF spends a ton of time and money going after bikers without much inthe way of results. But it over promises and underdelivers ultimately.

Interesting. Some errors throughout. The editor did not do an excellent job proofreading this. It's not totally horrible, but there are enough errors that if that type of thing bugs you like it does me, then you won't be able to read the book without cringing. As far as content, there was some interesting stuff. The author also has an interesting website with thoughtful/knowledgeable and engaging commenters and he tends to write decently there. I think the editor was just asleep at the handlebars on this one.
Still In Mind
Interesting take on the motorcycle vs ATF fight. Seems I trust the bikers more than the establishment. Lots of sketchy cop work going on. The motorcycle culture is fascinating. Good read for sure but I have already read similiar titles and this was a little bit of rehashed info. Would recommend though for new readers to the genre.

The amount of law enforcement bashing is just sad. I was hoping it would just be the first chapter but it continues thoughout the following also. This book portrays the bikers as just hapless enthusiast who are constant scapegoats. I’m from the east coast so it’s all Pagans and HA. I’ve lived in neighborhoods with Pagans and have seen the parties and drugs. I’ve been to bike weeks where almost two dozen Pegan members were arrested with hand grenades before they could be used. (See roar to the shore 2010). If you think the OMG’s are anything more then criminals I really hope you never come across a drunken group of them.

I'm mostly a fan of classic literature and there are only a handful of contemporary authors, like McCarthy and Dunant, that I truly admire. Don Davis is now one of them.

It's the hard data (exact times, places, quotes and so forth) that make this book, for those who want truth, a trustworthy source. But despite all that data (there's a lot of it), it's definitely NOT a dull, put-you-to-sleep read. The narrative is fast, intelligent but easy to follow, and ultimately so damned interesting. The only thing is this: if you're queasy about uneasy truths, you might want to look elsewhere.

Great read on th real deal. No fluff or sensational writing. And he points out the lying that goes on Federal Courts
Skyway
This is an important work, if for no other reason than it exposes the fallacy that a person can be criminally charged and presumed innocent until proven guilty. Anyone that is unfortunate enough to draw the ire of a federal investigator or officer of the court is doomed. Financially, emotionally, and personally. This book demonstrates the methods that are used by the ATF in their never-ending struggle to maintain a high public profile and to keep their budget from being cut.

After watching all the rogue operations that the ATF has been involved with over the last few years, the information contained within these pages came as no real surprise. Unfortunately, the majority of the public will only get the ATF/mainstream media side of the story, which is if you are a non-conformist, or you don't have a voting block supporting you, then you are a danger to society and you must be made to suffer. And sadly, most of them will accept this, because it is not their family that is forced to suffer for the vanity and bank accounts of a few federal officials.

If it were not for the importance of the message, I would have given this book four stars, as it was mildly repetitive at times, and just when I wanted more information on a certain area, the author would jump to the next part of the saga. Maybe I'm just a frustrated editor...

My own idiosyncrasies aside, it is a very informative book. The author has done his usual bang-up job of researching the subject, and he provides the dirty little numbers that expose the taxpayer funded payout that was made (not to mention the criminal behavior by representatives and agents of our government) in order to send regular Joes to prison for daring to be honorable brothers who would stand by their friends. Are there 'bad guys' among the people who were arrested? Sure. But the majority of the guys were people like you, me, and most of my friends. Did some of them smoke weed? Did some of them sell a gun or two to a friend? Did some of them break a minor law to help a friend when the friend (unknown to them, a snitch) begged them to? Sure.

But if you take a look at any police agency (including federal ones) you will find people who abuse drugs and alcohol, who sell guns to their friends, and who bend or break minor laws to cover or help their friends. Anyone who denies this ongoing hypocrisy is either a flat-out liar, or they are in serious denial.

If you do read this, then I highly recommend that you also purchase The Aging Rebel by the same author. It is a slightly different genre, and it is an excellent read that merited the full five stars.
