  1. “Sonny” indeed is a remarkable man and an American Patriot, as a Police Officer who was assigned to the secret BET unit to, investigate not just the Hell’s Angels and Mongols for many years.

    Sonny was always a very Honest straight talking man, I recall many years ago while in Church, Hope Chapel in Hermosa Beach, CA his aunt Newell, gave me his Late Father Bible to return to “Sonny” which I did. One thing I learned in my career was you can NOT Trust the Government or Law Enforcement .

  2. There’s a girl that is living with me that is tell lots of lies like she’s Sonny’s daughter she says her name is June barger and she says sonny died years ago I wish there was a way to prove to her I know she’s lieing Sonny’s a legend and don’t need his name drug through the mud by a crazy lady

  3. My husband James was told by his mother pat she a one time rode with the man and got pregnant unknown to the my husband who was his dad was told by one of his biker brothers James was his son and if he ever needs anything to ask chuck or Charles

  4. John Erie a Carlsbad cop since 1982 Not alongside his best friend Rob Gibson, probably thought he was smart, which he is good for nothing, and thought why they couldn’t get out( his dad), and I know I thought why, that’s why, they couldn’t think why.
