I don't see how it could impact us, absent any evidence of a pattern of unlawful behavior. An isolated incident of unlawful behavior by one person or group would not constitute a pattern of behavior of the whole group.
As an example, in 1979 the government charged Hells Angels president Sonny Barger for gun and drug offenses under the RICO act. Barger was acquitted. The government could not prove the offenses were a part of club policy.
Note that if the government had, say, minutes of a Hells Angels meeting where plans involving guns or drugs were discussed, the outcome might have been different.
Is this clear as mud?
Onward and upward, airforce
