story about the Mongols establishing chapters in Oregon, setting up a potentially volatile situation in Oregon. The Mongols have a long history of violence and are the rivals of the Hells Angels. You may remember the 2002 Mongols-Angels clash at the Harrah’s Casino in Laughlin, Nev., which left two Angels and a Mongol dead. The Mongols seek dominance of the outlaw motorcycle world, and Oregon is one leg in the journey.
