YAMAGUCHI: Why are Hells Angels allowed in Atwater?

April 23, 2013 

Why did Atwater allow the Hells Angels motorcycle gang to set up a clubhouse in a residential neighborhood? This club is known for violent activities. There are many children living nearby. Was it OK'd because it is a Hispanic area? Would it have been OK if a Norteño or other Mexican gang had set up a clubhouse there and had "meetings" out in the open with a hundred or more members parading around the street? I don’t think so.
