Indiana - Recordings of phone calls between members of the Outlaws Motorcycle Club capture threats of violence and fears that a "snitch" had entered the gang.
The calls, which were played in U.S. District Court on Friday during detention hearings for some of the alleged gang members, cast the group as violent and quick to seek retaliation against people who allegedly wronged them or their families.
Members of the Outlaws threatened to beat up members of another motorcycle club, and the club's treasurer called around to his peers, asking if they had any "cameras," a code word for guns.
The calls "absolutely" show the gang was a threat to the community, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Brad Blackington, who is prosecuting the case.
