Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri had this to say about the Mongols.
“They’re a criminal racketeering organization, and they are organized crime, really, in its truest sense,” Gualtieri said. “They’re very, very different from everyday people who simply enjoy riding motorcycles on weekends and belong to true social motorcycle clubs. These aren’t the people you see out on a Sunday motorcycle ride. They’re thugs who terrorize and commit crimes.”
Pascale was transported to the Pinellas County jail and charged with 1st degree murder.
