FBI Gang List Includes all Licensed (M) Drivers

Obviously looking for trouble. 
Log Item: The FBI hates me. In the photo (right) I am wearing black clothing and riding a black motorcycle in the crime blighted city of Newport Beach, California. Does that add to the criminal profile that the FBI is compiling? According to the Washington Post, it might.
(Washington Post) MSNBC correspondent Jeremy Lancaster sat down with government official Darrin Cornia to discuss recent rumors that have been in circulation in regard to registered motorcycle owners being placed on a classified FBI gang list. 
Darrin Cornia who currently holds a position within the National Security Branch of the government agreed to complete transparency prior to the interview with MSNBC’s Jeremy Lancaster and did remain direct and seemingly forthright throughout his conversation with Lancaster.

After a few moments of introduction, Lancaster bluntly asked the following question,” Mr. Cornia, if I were to make the statement, all registered motorcycle owners are currently showing on a classified FBI gang list, would the statement be true or false? 
Cornia responded by saying, “That would be a true statement, the FBI has been collecting and compiling Department of Motor Vehicles and Drivers License Division records for the purpose of adding those that own motorcycles to a classified gang list since 1994. 
Lancaster asked Cornia to explain the reasoning behind the list which seems inappropriately broad, to Cornia answered the question with the following statement, “It’s nothing more than collecting and utilizing data. We may not like to admit it, but the truth of the matter is that those that own and operate motorcycles are 67% more likely to be involved in illegal or criminal activity than those that do not own or operate a motorcycle.” 
The National Security Official went on to explain, “It’s the same as firearms, if local P.D or Highway Patrol were to pull someone over that is a registered firearm owner, that officer has the right to know this information going into the interaction, the same could be said about a local P.D or Highway Patrol Officer that pulled over a registered motorcycle owner, the situations are honestly interchangeable in the eyes of National and Homeland Security. 
MSNBC correspondent Jeremy Lancaster asked Cornia if placing citizens on a gang list just because they are registered motorcycle owners is considered as profiling, Cornia responded to the question by saying, “as a nation do we complain when we add someone that has a Crips or Bloods tattoo to a gang list even though the individual swears up and down that they don’t have gang affiliation? Again these are 2 situations that are interchangeable, we can’t pick and choose.” 
Lancaster asked how individuals can find out if they are on this classified gang list to which Cornia responded, “Did you register a motorcycle or obtain a Class M license anytime between the year 1994 and 2015? If so, than you are on the list.”
I wonder if the FBI hates me more because I ride a motorcycle made in Italy than they would if I had bought one that was made in America?

I honestly don't know why everyone licensed to ride a motorcycle has made it to an FBI list. But mine is a "Devil"...but since the list is classified, there is no way to know if I've been singled out for special treatment.

I find it incredible that tax dollars are used for that drivel, but with 60 million Americans on food stamps, and Obamacare being in vogue and with prisons paying for gender reassignment surgery for prisoners, why not track everyone who has a motorcycle license or owns a motorcycle and put it on a secret list. Being that we're all such profound threats to national security, how is the FBI cataloging passengers who ride on the back of our motorcycles?


  1. Newport Beach is 'crime blighted?' Get out! My aunt and uncle lived in Newport Beach back in the late 1980's, and I used to visit them all the time, and briefly lived with them there when I was in-between jobs (I got sacked quite a few times, for reasons not of my doing, of course). The place was posh, LL. Upscale. People there had money falling out of the anuses, so to speak.

    Now it's crime blighted? What the hell happened?

    1. Sarcasm. I joke about the Newport Beach food riots of 2014, but it's one of the richest and most desirable communities in America.

    2. Oh.

      Dumb me.

      I get it now, much like crime blighted Beverly Hills, or gang infested Bel Air. I just figured that the way California was going, it made sense that the scumbags that used to hang out in Compton, Carson and Long Beach just moved down the coast line to swankier digs.


    3. Welfare and food stamps are not quite up to that level yet, but who knows where is may go if it will buy a vote? Newport Beach is a Republican enclave, so there could be a push to destroy the place.

      Compton and Carson are still sewers. Parts of Long Beach are gentrifying and pushing the criminals out and back to North Long Beach, Inglewood and South Central Los Angeles.

  2. You look thuggishly cheick in that photo.
    (If only the gubmet could see what all you are carrying under that jacket.)
    And what I can remember from Newport Beach... you might be turning on a girly-man right now.

    1. All of the homos and trannys live in LAGUNA Beach. Newport is straight - so far.

    2. That same aunt and uncle sold their posh digs in Newport Beach and moved to Laguna NIGEL, not Laguna Beach, and I don't recall any homos and trannys hanging out there.

    3. Laguna Niguel is mostly nice tract homes, occupied for the most part by straight upper class white, Asian and Hispanic people. A surprising number of them own motorcycles and ride on the weekend in packs, which is fine with me. I'm sure the FBI takes a special interest in this because some of the groups are not racially integrated. The Asians prefer sport bikes, the whites ride Harley Davidsons and Ducatis. The Mexicans pick and choose.


    Fox News should soon add this to the list of fake stories lefty papers adopt, and don't vet.

    The first clue is the idea that the FBI could keep a national list of people without permission from the ACLU (sad, and only slightly satirical). There is a function of NCIC that notifies a person of "gang" status, but it is so incomplete, and I have never actually had any gang member get a hit?

    1. I found the story surprising, but believable in a way that some old guy with black frame glasses and a crew cut was managing it...I know that you know the type. No, NCIC's gang module is incomplete and ineffective.
