been a member of the Blue Knights for 20 years. the original members picked a light blue color vest to separate them from the black outlaw type.Thanks for pressing my detonation button.
ANY organized group of people who emulate CRIMINALS (those who wear "colors" under the guise of being a motorcycle club) are no better than the criminals they emulate.
It's absolutely pathetic.....what would be the general opinion here if the Hells Angels or Outlaws started driving tinted-out Crown Vics or gathered after midnight wearing pants with a blue stripe down the outseam to drink beers? They would be rightly ridiculed and laughed at, which is what I suspect is exactly what the Hells Angels, Outlaws, Bandidos, etc., are doing when they see the clueless cops emulating them with groups like the Iron Pigs, the Gunfighters, etc,
Yes, your appearance and what you do in your off-duty time DOES matter, and it's fair game for defense counsel.
it's a great club and have meet people from all over the states and Europe.
i personally don't wear a vest for the above mentioned reasons, but i've met everything from constables to NYPD to FBI agents wearing the BK vest so to each their own
