Motorcycle clubs claim profiling in Calif.
Say that they are good people and should not be targeted for 'undue' law enforcement attention
By Roger H. Aylworth
OROVILLE, Calif. — While admitting many of them deliberately foster a "bad boy" persona, members of several motorcycle clubs went before the Butte County Board of Supervisors today to say they don't deserve to be treated as criminals, and resent it.
With their Harley-Davidson motorcycles parked in front of the county Administration Building, and wearing vests declaring themselves to be "Americans," "Bishops," "Just Brothers" and others, they came before the supervisors Tuesday to say they are good people and shouldn't be targeted for undue law enforcement attention.
