|The near complete destruction of the East End HA chapter has long been attributed solely to Micheal Plante. Much like the 'random' traffic check whilst the boyz were on their way to a grow rip that blew the Kelowna HA Chapter into oblivion, that straight up bullshit doesn't wash.|
What is our little belief? WHO escaped totally untouched both times? Which limping arsonist torched Digstown under RCMP videotaped nose and then proceeded to collect 54k in insurance proceeds anyway? Who has managed to avoid any and all form of police notice whilst continuing to make loot hand over fukkin foot whilst all around him fall continuously like fukkin dominos?
|Plante was a multiple rejected cop applicant that, by international HA rules, should not have been anywhere near the club in the first place. He was so damn fragile he cracked the instant he was passed over for 'prospect' status. Plante, clearly, wasn't the only poker the cops had in the fire. He was the necessary whipping boy for when the chit hit the fan with gusto, nothing more.|
Mr. Damiano Dipopolo takes exceptional pride in the fact he has "never been charged with a criminal offense". How, the flying fuk, can a career, senior member of an organization that is 1000% all about crime make that claim his entire 'working' life?
|Readers should be able to guess what this cowboy supposes, and that is coming from direct personal experience now.|
We believe there are only TWO HA connected dopes that would have a legitimate burning desire to have me fukked up with the greatest possible gusto ... Rocco and Damiano Dipopolo.
|He eventually became a bouncer at a local strip club, the Marble Arch, which doubled as one of the gang’s watering holes. On one night, Plante made the decision to kick out an associate of the Angels who was on a drunken rampage.|
The move was seen as smart rather than disrespectful and it earned him a personal thank-you from Louie Robinson, one of the senior Angels and the half-brother of the local chapter’s president John Bryce.
|It wasn't until he began to rise up the ranks that Plante began to ride a motorcycle, one the police helped him pay for. Throughout the summer of 2003, he met with police a number of times as an informant, getting paid after providing specifics about times the gang dealt meth or intimidated witnesses. It wasn’t until 2004 that Plante actually became an undercover agent, earning him both immunity from illegal actions and an official salary. In turn, he also had to wear a wire so that police could build up a legitimate case against the Angels.|
After months of grunt duties for the gang, Plante was made an ‘official friend', showing that he was making strides and earning their trust.
|One milestone came when he was told to get a bag and pick up some guns that Potts had stored at his elderly mother’s home, for fear that they were going to be raided by police. He ended up picking up a collection of machine guns, rifles- and even grenades. He turned them over to the police and made up a series of excuses about why they couldn’t access them. |
Anxiety, exhaustion, and frustration finally reached a tipping point for Plante in January 2005, when he was overlooked by the group and not given the title of an official Angel, when they chose the son of John Bryce instead.
