The brand new, 54-count superseding indictment, was unsealed today by the Justice Department with Attorney General Jeff Sessions formally charging 12 members and associates of the Mongols Motorcycle Gang (Mongols MC).
Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department's Criminal Division and U.S. Attorney Don Cochran of the Middle District of Tennessee said that three other individuals tied to the organization have also been charged with federal crimes including large-scale drug trafficking allegedly from California to Tennessee and Kentucky, and crimes related to the<a href="https://www.justice.gov/usam/criminal-resource-manual-2402-hobbs-act-generally"> <i>Hobbs Act</i> </a>involving interstate commerce and extortion.
Prosecuting the case will be U.S. Attorney Cochran, who alongside Assistant Special Agent in Charge Jack Webb of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' Nashville Division; Assistant Director Dewayne Johnson of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation; and Clarksville Police Chief Al Ansley all stated that the streets of their communities will now be much safer since this very powerful gang, which the DOJ says was responsible for a large percentage of illegal narcotics sales in the affected areas, has been removed from power.
According to the Indictment, each of the members and associates of the Clarksville Chapter of the Mongols was all engaged in violent criminal activities, including murder, attempted murder, assault, kidnapping, robbery, extortion, witness tampering, money laundering, interstate travel in aid of racketeering, and large-scale drug trafficking.
The DOJ says that the Mongols Motorcycle Gang identifies itself as an "outlaw" motorcycle gang (also known as a ‘1%er'), and is a nationwide and international organization with chapters located all across America and the globe.
Prosecutors say the California based gang established a Clarksville chapter.
"Some of the allegations date back to 2015 which "frankly began with a murder," said Assistant U.S. Attorney, Katy Rising
The majority of the powerful chapters are based in California, but chapters have been established in other parts of the United States and in other countries, including Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Indiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, Washington, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mexico, Singapore, Switzerland and Thailand.
Just this morning, local, state and federal law enforcement officers began arresting those charged in the indictment and all but one are in custody.

<b>Attorney General Jeff Sessions released the following statement:</b>
<blockquote>"Gangs that conspire to spread illegal drugs like methamphetamine and lethal opioids, extort legitimate businesses, and wage violence on our fellow Americans will be held accountable by the Department of Justice"</blockquote>
<blockquote>"Last year, we secured the convictions of more than 1,200 gang members, and, as this case makes clear, we are not slowing down. I want to thank the ATF and all of our incredible state, county, and local law enforcement partners who helped make today's indictment possible, including the Clarksville and Owensboro Police Departments, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, and four county sheriff's offices. Today's indictment is the next step in our efforts to dismantle gangs and stop the spread of deadly drugs and violent crime."</blockquote>
<b>U.S. Attorney Don Cochran of Middle Tennessee followed up AG Sessions with the following statement:</b>
<blockquote>"Attorney General Sessions has made it clear that prosecuting violent offenders and reducing violent crime is a top priority of the Department of Justice."</blockquote>
<blockquote>"Today's indictment and arrests have resulted in the removal of many dangerous individuals from neighborhoods in and around middle Tennessee and we intend to vigorously prosecute these individuals and hold them accountable for their actions. I commend the many law enforcement officers and prosecutors who have dedicated enormous amounts of time and effort in bringing these charges."</blockquote>
<blockquote>"They engaged in significant Violence that affected not only their members but the community at large and also trafficked in large quantities of methamphetamines and the opioids are taken so many lives in Tennessee."</blockquote>
According to the indictment, the Mongols members were engaged in crimes such as drug trafficking which swamped the Clarksville area since around March of 2015 which flooded the streets with both street dealers and criminals who would, in turn, commit crimes in order to stay high.
This is one of the problems in relation to drug trafficking that many don't acknowledge, being that when addicts have access to a high supply of methamphetamine or heroin, for example, they'll then engage in robberies, thefts, and crimes of all magnitudes to feed their addiction.
Many affiliates to the Mongols gang, such as the low-level street dealers who buy larger quantities of drugs to redistribute, are personally contributing to the increased crime in Clarksville and everywhere else they operate on the country either directly or indirectly.
You could go as far as describing them as terrorists because in turn they are indeed <i>spreading terror</i>.

The bloodshed and violence from this particular chapter itself are also terrifying. The lost of crimes committed are seemingly endless.
In October, two of the bikers named in the indictment were involved in a reckless shooting that caused the Federal investigation to begin.
Dustin McCracken, and former Ft. Campbell Soldier Kyle Heade was arrested for an attempted murder charge avert shooting an innocent man outside of a Clarksville restaurant.
On Thursday, both names surfaced in the Federal indictment against all of the members of the Clarksville Chapter of the Mongols Motorcycle Gang and several others after months of undercover work monitoring and tracking the ruthless criminals.
<b>Attorney General Jeff Sessions says that his Agents have included crimes that started in 2015 in the 54-count Indictment and include the following:</b>
In Clarksville on April 20th of 2015, members of the Mongols were involved in a kidnapping and assault using both a firearm and a taser.
On May 17th of 2015, members of the Mongols committed an arson by setting fire to and destroying the Sin City Motorcycle Clubhouse, a rival motorcycle gang, in Clarksville.
On May 22nd of 2015, members of the Mongols kidnapped two victims at gunpoint in the Clarksville area before transporting them to a cemetery in Bumpus Mills, Tennessee. Later, one of those innocent people would be murdered by shooting the victim at least 8 times, including once in the face.
On July 3rd of 2015, members of the Mongols would rob two individuals at gunpoint in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Clarksville.
On July 4th of 2015, members of the Mongols committed a home invasion where they entered a residence in Hopkinsville, Kentucky. They would then pistol-whip the victim and stealing their valuables while another member held the victim at knifepoint;
The Department of Justice says that several times a week the members of the Mongols would travel to California with large bundles of cash with the intent to purchase at least 50 pounds of methamphetamine on each trip. They would then bring it back to Tennessee for distribution in Tennessee and Kentucky.
The Department of Justice says that members of the Mongols would deliver around $300,000 in cash, all being the proceeds of their illicit methamphetamine sales, to a co-conspirator who's a member of the Mongols California Harbor Chapter.
On January 9th of 2016, members of the Mongols in Clarksville purchased 80 to 90 pills containing Oxymorphone, a schedule II substance, in exchange for $3,000-$3,500 in cash.
On January 16th of 2016, members of the Mongols in Clarksville attempted to purchase 90 pills containing Oxymorphone, in exchange for $5,400 in cash. However, instead of paying for the narcotics one of the Mongols, Kyle Heade, shot the seller using a 9mm handgun.
On January 17th of 2016, members of the Mongols kidnapped two people at a residence in Clarksville. They would then hold the individuals at gunpoint while they interrogated another person inside the house, searching for cash from "drug proceeds" in an apparent rival shake-down of sorts.
On April 24th of 2016, three members of the Mongols were traveling from Oak Grove, Kentucky into Boone County, Missouri for a narcotics delivery. Law enforcement pulled over the vehicle, due to it being reported stolen, only to find a Glock 9mm pistol with an extra 30 round magazine and a .40 caliber handgun. Also found in that search was 113 grams of 100 percent pure methamphetamine as well as various additional narcotics.
On May 11th of 2016, members of the Mongols sold approximately 3 grams of 96 percent pure methamphetamine to another individual in what appears to have been a controlled buy by Law Enforcement.
On July 14th of 2016, members of the Mongols attempted to murder a rival motorcycle club member for wearing the colors of that club in the presence or the Mongols.
Between October 26th of 2016 to November 9th of 2016, Members of the Mongols kidnapped a woman from a hotel in Nashville, Tennessee. Members of the Mongols then physically assaulted the woman during an interrogation of a co-conspirator member of the Mongols Harbor Chapter in California.
<b>All of the above specific events are mentioned directly in the indictments against the Mongols Motorcycle Gang.</b>
It's also believed that there will be continued arrests of additional members in the coming weeks, as the efforts of the Justice Department to bring down this organization once and for all are in full swing.
The degeneracy that has been spread at the hands of the Mongols, and infected the towns they operate out of, has also destroyed families by creating addicts out of parents, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons, and daughters.
These arrests are a huge victory for the American people and those living in all of the communities terrorized by the violence and drugs which stem from an origin connected to the Mongols gang.
