Canada - In part four of my series about police agent Micheal Plante, the infiltrator finally makes it into the Hells Angels program as "an official friend."
He is called into the meeting room at the East End clubhouse and asked why he wants to be a Hells Angel. It is Sept. 2004. He addresses the room.
"They are all looking at me. And they say: 'Tell us why you want to be a Hells Angel,'" Plante recalled.
"I did my speech - `Well you know, I have been hanging around you guys. I like the camaraderie. I like what is going on around here. And I really, really want to be part of it. And I want to be part of the bigger thing.'"
David (Gyrator) Giles asked him about the fact he had studied criminology and said he would never be able to pursue the field again.
Plante said East End president John Bryce laid out how police would react to Plante now that he was in the program.
"Bryce said something like, 'You are going to have a lot of heat on you now because they like to pick on us,'" Plante recalled.
Giles made a final joking comment – all captured on the wire Plante was wearing: "You are not going to like become a Hells Angel and then quit and write a book about us, are you?"
Little did Giles know that Plante was recording the whole meeting on a police wire.(click for part four)
