The book Gangs, written by Tony Thompson a crime correspondent for The Observer , states that Stephen Cunningham , a member of the Angels, sported a new patch after he recovered from attempting to set a bomb, consisting of two Nazi-style SS lightning bolts below the words 'Filthy Few'.

It is said the club excludes child molesters and individuals who have applied to become police or prison officers. If the hang-around is interested, he may be asked to become an "associate", a status that usually lasts a year or two. At the end of that stage, he is reclassified as "prospect", participating in some club activities, but not having voting privileges while he is evaluated for suitability as a full member.
The last phase, and highest membership status, is "Full Membership" or " Full-Patch ". Prospects are allowed to wear only a bottom rocker with the state or territory name along with the rectangular "MC" patch.
While, it is generally recognized that criminality is a significant aspect of the OMCs milieu Richardson ; Quinn and Forsyth ; Quinn and Shane Koch and are classified as a form of organized crime Abadinsky , there are different views on how this criminality can best be described. In their attempt to explore the nature of criminality within OMCs, Qiunn and Koch outlined four distinct types of offenses that can be observed within these groups: 1 spontaneous expressive acts one or a few members involved in violent crimes, such as bar fights, directed at rivals or other actors from within the saloon society milieu ; 2 planned expressive acts violent crime committed against adversaries and reflecting the priorities of the club ; 3 short-term instrumental acts exploiting an opportunity to meet a goal for at least one member such as theft ; and 4 ongoing instrumental enterprises planned criminal activities involving one or more cliques such as drug production and distribution.
It is established in around 56 countries spanning five continents and may have as many as members divided into more than chapters Hells Angels Motorcycle Corporation ; NGIC ; Rikskriminalpolisen b. HAMC is not only category-defining for other OMCs; they have also served as a role model for other types of gangs, such as Swedish street-gangs Rostami We do this by investigating the patterns of criminal collaboration in co-offending relations and criminal offenses.
Among Outlaw biker organizations, HAMC stands out both as a pioneer in branding and global expansion and in many countries, such as in Sweden, where they have had a hegemonic position among other OMCs and gangs Rostami , Even though Sweden has traditionally had a biker culture, the Swedish biker culture has been strongly influenced by the developments in the US Grundvall ; Lagergren From privileged entertainment for the upper class in the early s to transportation for the working class in the s, a peculiar biker subculture developed in the s and later.
Similar to developments in the US, Swedish biker culture was strongly influenced by media culture Grundvall ; Lagergren At the end of the s and the s, Swedish outlaw culture took off, according to Grundvall and Fredelius , strongly influenced by the motion picture The Wild One With the expansion of the Swedish biker culture, violent conflicts arose between motorcycle clubs.
As problems proliferated, the authorities began to take an interest in the clubs Grundvall However, during the s—both in Sweden and Denmark—violent conflicts between different outlaw clubs reached a new level, and the larger international outlaw organizations such as HAMC and Bandidos entered the Scandinavian scene.
Clubs in conflict, as in the case of Denmark and Sweden, frequently sought protection in larger international outlaw clubs such as Hells Angels and Bandidos, resulting in conflictual formations affecting recruitment of members and club identity.
The development of the Swedish biker milieu is characterized by merging and segmentation. Before the introduction of Hells Angels and Bandidos the Swedish OMCs consisted of locally bounded single chapters which later merged into the Hells Angels and Bandidos during the s. In the early s new OMCs emerged such as Outlaw MC, Mongols MC and later the Satudarah MC, and challenged previously dominating clubs, resulting in a segmented biker landscape and an increased need of allocated other biker clubs for recruitment of new members both from within the biker milieu and non-bikers.
Today RWC has 13 chapters in Sweden.
The first three were formed in and the rest from onwards. RWC is not a traditional biker club; in fact, they do not have the basic recruitment procedure of other biker clubs, such as having access to a motorcycle.
The RWC does not have a formal hierarchy structure aside from two levels of affiliation, full membership and those who have applied for membership. The latter cannot participate in internal meetings of the organization and thus have a lower status than full members.
In fact, RWC shows similarities with Swedish street gangs. They have similar attributes such as gang sweatshirts instead of biker vests and have a more flexible recruitment process. Red Devils MC has 8 chapters in Sweden. The HAMC has the right to decide on new members and supporter club chapters. All members must own a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, must pledge full loyalty to HAMC, and each chapter must have at least five members.
Our analyses are based on unique Swedish co-offending data from the Swedish National Council for Crime Prevention and gang membership data from the Swedish Police. We analyze the organizational patterns with the help of social network analysis, a powerful tool that has been previously applied to understanding criminal collaboration and organizational dynamics in general Everton , and Hells Angels in particular Morselli a , b.
Essentially, what Omodt and Matter are doing is discussing how life was going to continue for both of them after dedicating a large part of their lives to being on separate sides of the law.

While this book is not a work of fiction, it is not a scholarly work either. There is a legitimate voice from both sides in these pages and while prejudiced, the book might prove as a deterrent to those who want to join an OMC, while also giving those interested in investigating them the proper, just, and legal way to pursue those OMC members who participate in criminal activity.
