Meeting tonight at Lost Isle to discuss Hells Angels visit
Tim Rogentine, owner of the Carlton bar-restaurant where the Hells Angels set up headquarters, plans to hold a community meeting at 6 p.m. today, Aug. 11, at Lost Isle to discuss what he called heavy-handed law enforcement.
“I want to listen to the people out here,” he said. “Just about every person I talk to has some kind of story about how they were mistreated [by law enforcement]. A lot of our civil rights were broken there and for the police to break the law as much as they did … we need someone to say why it happened.”
Rogentine declined to give specific examples of how law enforcement officers had violated the civil rights of residents and Hells Angels members, but said he would talk about it at Tuesday’s meeting. He did allege that members of law enforcement committed minor traffic violations.
