RARA-AVIS: Philly Biker tussles: Matkowski

Hey, Joy, are you aware of the reported Pagans-Angels turf wars of late around here, at least as publicized by our not-altogether-responsible local
"news" sources?

I was the one who was mumbling about the implausibility of biker wars a while back, and I thought about biker wars yesterday when I came across something similar. I haven't heard of such activities in Pennsylvania since the mid-1970s.
(There have been flare-ups of mayhem, e.g., the Junior Black Mafia, but strictly drug-related stuff.) Is gang warfare like biker wars--going on in Boston or Montreal but not in the broadcast area for my local news?
