Portage should stop hassling Invaders motorcycle club

2012-06-13T00:00:00Z Portage should stop hassling Invaders motorcycle club nwitimes.com

It really bothers me that Portage wants to shut down the Invaders clubhouse when we have other serious crimes going on. I never see anything exciting over at the clubhouse.

My husband and I are not members.

Does law enforcement have the right to target, harass and discriminate against the members of the club? Is anyone aware of the benefits they have for their members who  have lost a loved one or have expensive medical bills? How much is this lawsuit going to cost the taxpayers?

I am worried that if law enforcement can target people, harass and discriminate against someone or some group, then they can it do to anyone.

We are losing our rights to assemble and belong to an organization.
