Another shooting
Update (3:10 p.m.): The Santa Clara County Medical Examiner's Office says it was Steve Tausan who was shot and killed Saturday during a funeral for another Hells Angel.

San Jose police are keeping unusually quiet about the weekend shooting where a Hells Angel was killed after a gunman opened fire during a funeral service for another member of the notorious motorcycle club.

Police told reporters they are "actively working the case" but have made no arrests, identified no suspect, and have yet to release the name of the victim.

The shooting happened at Oak Hill Cemetery where thousands of people gathered to mourn the death of Jeffrey "Jethro" Pettigrew, president of the Hells Angels' San Jose chapter, who was  shot to death last month at a casino in Nevada. Ernesto Manuel Gonzalez, a rival motorcycle club member, was arrested two weeks ago in San Francisco on suspicion of shooting Pettigrew.

The casino shooting sparked rage among the motorcycle club, prompting heavy police presence at Saturday's funeral services. But even with cops swarming the service, the shooter managed to escape and has not been found, police said.

"We can't be next to every individual," San Jose Police spokesman Jose Garcia told reporters. "There were 4,000 people there."

By the time police got to where the shooting occurred, the scene had been tampered with, which "foiled the investigation," Garcia said.

I feel bad for the family of Steve Tausan. I've met him twice. Why do a lot of people think if somebody killed a hells angel he is going to get killed in prison? Have any of you ever did time in prison? They have no power in prison. There would be one or two on a prison yard of a thousand inmates. They can't even fill a table at chow time. I have two friends who are Correctional Officers in San Quentin State Prison and have noticed for years that the whites in prison don't really respect the HA all that much. They get treated like second class citizens. The ones who stay on a yard usually fall slave to the AB (Aryan Brotherhood) or other white power groups. The Hells Angels have paid the AB for protection in the past while behind bars. They can't make any moves or call shots on anybody, especially if that someone is of another race. I have never encountered a killing where one of them avenged the murder of one of their own behind bars. They have some power on the street, mostly because a lot of people are like you, they pump up the rep of the Hells Angels, to the point where they think they can reach into prison to have a person killed. Other biker gangs, like the Mongols, Outlaws and now the Vagos have killed high ranking angels and some of them never did anything back to them. What makes this time any different? You guys think they are like the mafia was at one time.

DOUCHEBAGGERY IS THE GREATEST FORM OF FLATTERYKurt Sutter called Chuck Zito a Doucebag

and wrote Doucebaggery is the greatest form of flattery

... Michael Yevtuck called the rest of the USA hells angels douchebags.and I wrote this.

I think that is one of the only times I agreed with Kurt Sutters rants and raves about anything.That in itself agreeing with Kurt feels strange since Kurt and I come from and live in complete different worlds and we look at the Biker world from two complete different view points. I really understand what he said.

I am Flattered to think the USA hells angels and or the Men in the support flocks that date the freaks in the USA hells angels hate me so much and look at me as such a threat to their fake way of life that they would take the time to actually try to belittle me by making face accounts using my name and making fake comments using my name all over the internet.Phhh that was a long sentence

.However flattering I still do not like it. I like to handle things the Good Old fashion way

I would like you USA hells angels chicken headed beak bobbing Knob Gobblers and or the men in the fraudulent freak flocks that follow you to do as follows

:1) stop using my name to make comments

2) erase the fake Michael Yevtuck face book account since I am the only Michael Yevtuck in the world you have no legal excuse other then you were born cowards

3) erase the Fake Discus Account Mike Yevtuck same reason stated above

4) erase the fake Yahoo account Mike Yevtuck same reasons previously mentioned

5) If you have a problem with me argue like men and stop using Libel.

6) if you really hate me so much that words cannot describe it You are all welcome to try to beat me up and if you cannot fight you can try to shoot me.

This Cowardly BS has got to stop . I do not do anything I am ashamed of doing.

If you are ashamed of your actions stop doing them and I will have nothing to comment about.

K

LOL ROTFLMAO at all the cowards and punks in the USA hells angels and the fraudulent flock of freaks that follow behind you.

You would think facebook Yahoo and Discus should be more responsible.

No excuse I am who I am I am the Only Mike Yevtuck in the World.

Jealousy Breeds Hate!

It's years now that you have been attacking every article you can find on the Hells Angels. In Every article you attack you bring up Dave Burgess and kiddy porn as though you are bringing filth and disgrace to the Hells Angels but your fooling only yourself and continue to further prove that you are indeed a Sick Fool! I can't help but askwhy you don't get help for your sickness??.. In all your hate and negativity, are you more jealous of the Hells Angels or more obsessed with your secret fascination of kiddy porn??

Dave Burgess was FALSELY accussed of a very horriffic crime. He is WEALTHY in SUPPORT because he is an INNOCENT MAN  doing time for a FABRICATED CRIME.

What's your excuse Mike??? Why are you so insanely jealous of the Hells Angels and So obscenely obsessed with kiddy porn??? Do yourself a favor and get some HELP!!! NOW!!! 

Trust Me When I say,  No matter how much you rant and rave about your hate for the Hells Angels and For Dave Burgess and your obsession with kiddy porn... your not fooling anyone.

YOU DO NOT BRING DISGRACE TO THE HELLS ANGELS.. A PROUD CLUB THAT LIVES FOR FREEDOM HONOR LOYALTY & RESPECT, NOR DO YOU BRING DISGRACE TO SUPPORTERS OR FRIENDS AND FAMILY OF DAVE BURGESS.

WITH EVERY POST YOU MAKE YOU CONTINUE TO PROVE  THAT YOU ARE INDEED INSANELY JEALOUS OF  DAVE BURGESS AND ALL ANGELS AND THAT YOU HAVE THIS SICK FASCINATION WITH KIDDY PORN  AND ABUSE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN TO WHICH EVERYONE FINDS OFFENSIVE. YOUR OWN SICKNESS  IS THE TRUE EVIL AND WICKEDNESS BEHIND YOUR PLOT TO TRY AND BRING DISGRACE  TO THE HELLS ANGELS CLUB TO WHICH YOU FAIL MISERABLY AT.

IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO CONTINUE TO HATE BUT WITH EVERY ARTICLE ON THE HELLS ANGELS THAT  YOU  ATTACK YOU ONLY FURTHUR CALL ATTENTION TO YOUR OWN SICKNESS PROVING TO ALL HOW DESPERATELY YOU NEED HELP FOR YOUR OWN SICK AND TWISTED FASCINATION WITH KIDDY PORN  AND ABUSE AGAINST WOMEN AND CHILDREN.  

I REPEAT... GET "YOURSELF" SOME HELP YOU  FILTHY FOWL FCKED FREAK!!

Was Dave going to sell them to the red and white 81wearing support clubs?

Was this the entertainment?

You live by the sword, you die by the sword.  Thankfully, only a stinky sad sack of scum chicken shit spawned from a skanky slut was killed.

Steve Tausan was also known in the Hells Angels as Mr. 187"     (the California penal code for murder).  He had 5  boxing matches from 1983-1985 as a middleweight  In San Jose and Visalia,   winning 3 and losing 2, one by knockout.    He had a much better  fighting record vs. drunken transients while working as a bouncer at the Pink Poodle strip club in San Jose.  Tausan was called in by David Kuzinich, the owner, on August 29,1997, to "take care" of a drunken 38 year old   man named Kevin Sullivan.   Mr Sullivan had previously had words with  Mr Kuzinich at a bar across the street named Alex's 49er Inn.  Prosecutors believe Mr. Kuzinich then  lured Kevin Sullivan to his bar by offering him free dances and coffee, then calling his Hells Angel bouncer to come and attack him.  When he arrived, Steve Tausan savagely attacked and beat the drunk and helpless Kevin Sullivan to death, leaving him propped in a chair with his lower lip nearly detached, a badly broken nose and deep cuts on his face. He died that night.  Tausan beat the charges by claiming self-defense. 

  Let the glowing eulogies for for the dearly departed Mr Tausan begin.

Tausan actually had a tattoo that said "Mr. 187".   He was proud of that murder.

Lou Sypher

Tausan, "actually" ALREADY had that tattoo, prior to the Pink Poodle incident. So, you are mistaken, sir.

In fact, during the the trial the prosecuting attorneys asked Mr. Tausan if he knew what the # 187 was penal code for. He responded by confirming that he did. The attorney than asked if he had a tattoo that said "Mr. 187" ?  He confirmed that he did. The attorney now quite confident he had lured Mr. Tausan into his trap, asked him to please explain to the court why an innocent man would be wanted to be known as "Mr. 187"? Tausan responded that he didnt.  The attorney than reiterated the fact that Tausan had a tattoo that clearly identifies him as "Mr. 187".  Then asks Tausan why he would have such a tattoo which clearly demonstrates that he wants to be known as / and clearly admits to being "Mr. 187",  and has openly admitted knowing full well what the code 187 means. Tausan than looks the attorney in the eye and says, "Sir, I started boxing at the age of nine. I am not "Mr. 187",,then holds up a big paw of a fist and says, "He is."  And displayed for everyone in the court the tattoo in question engraved on his left hook.

Right, and you didn't speak up because you were getting a BJ in the bathroom and didn't want your wife to find out, right? You would have been such a valuable and credible witness. You could have described the top of the stripper's head perfectly. I think you're a helpless drunk and a coward. If you saw Tausan from a block away you'd soil your pants from behind too.

The dead HA, Steve Tausan, was no saint.   See the link to read about the brutal murder of a drunk 38 year old Kevin Sullivan in 1997 that he got away with killing at The Pink Poodle strip club. They called in Tausan to beat this drunk helpless guy to death for mouthing off.
