BIKERS BREAK DRUG DEALER'S FINGERS
Dominic Manteau hasn't played the guitar in weeks. "I might never play again," he told Rave News. "I know I shouldn't have been so careless, but I think getting bikers to break my fingers was extreme."
The trouble all started when Dominic decided to sell drugs at a rave without the promoters permission. "The promoter wanted a cut of my profits, and I told him to back off. I mean, it wasn't like I was going up to everybody asking if they wanted to buy from me. It was just a few people. Maybe I should have asked for permission, but I don't think what the promoter did was right."
After being rejected, the promoter called a member of a local biker gang, who showed up at the rave with a couple of thugs. They dragged Dominic out of the party and threw him into the back of a van. "It was scary, they drove me to the middle of nowhere. They didn't say a single word the whole drive, no matter how much I begged and pleaded, they just sat in the van without saying a word. Then they pulled over to some field, and I swear I thought they were going to kill me. Instead, they took all my drugs, my jacket, my dignity. They told me that if they ever caught me selling drugs at another party, they'd kill me. Then they pushed me on the ground, pulled out my hands, and stomped on them.
Eric Morrissey, an ex-biker, was surprised at the lenience his former comrades showed Dominic. "He got off easy. Back in the day, we wouldn't have just broken his fingers. We would have fucked him in the mouth too," said Eric. "Independent drug dealers should always make sure they're in the clear before selling at a party. Be courteous, and give the promoters a cut. Otherwise, you might be in for a world of pain."
Dominic now spends his days watching Back to the Future over and over again. "I wish I had a time machine. When you break the law, you run the risk of getting your bones broken. If I could do it all over, I would. I miss having fingers that work."
