Reading through some of the comments in the findagrave memorial link, and found this bit of unintentionally twisted irony:

As bad as the Hells Angels were on that night—and they were bad—the Angel who took out Meredith Hunter did exactly what a security professional is supposed to do in a life threatening situation. Not only did the Angel put him down, he lunged at Hunter and grabbed his arm first with the gun pointing towards the stage and secured him before the knife attack. Hunter was clearly intent on firing that weapon at someone on stage. It appeared to be in the direction of Jagger. It was an unfortunate situation, but the quick response by the Angel may have saved the life of Stone. He may have already fired the gun. I'm convinced the Angel intervention was a heroic one. Forget everything else about the bad behavior at the show and watch the video at the end and see what conclusion you come to.

Even if it was a "heroic act" that potentially saved anyone's life, it doesn't make the guy a "hero". Semantics maybe, but the guy was a scumbag who likely was a big part of the reason the gun was pulled to begin with. Stupid move on behalf of the deceased, which he is responsible for, but the thug who killed him was no "hero". Like crediting a drunk driver as a hero who slams his car into a tree and then pulls his passenger to safety before the car blows.

Cool, so there is new evidence that shows this guy was the reason? Certainly you wouldn't just make that part up, please post the link.

Sure, here.. [iorr.org]
Read the thread, watch the clips. Remember I said part of the reason.

Turns out he was a Hell's Angel.

Who had been bashing heads/inciting violence and causing mayhem all day. You'll also learn he later died while likely running from someone and had a load of cash on him etc. Like I said, a real scumbag thug, seems obvious.

Yes but Hunter didnt pull out a loaded gun because of what went on earlier that day. He and the Angels/some Angel had a situation. My guess is that somebody said something/pushed him/hit him/other, and thats when he pulled the gun and tried to shoot the Angel.

I can't see that Hunter tried to shoot him. Rather, it looked like he wanted to scare him off.

A foolish move.

You're judging him on the incident based on his associate w/ the group ... sorry can't do that. You have no idea that he did something that caused the dude to pull a gun but you are stating it that is is most likely ...why?

Saying you can't judge a literal gang member who's right up front in the thick of things where they are so violent many of the performers are pleading with them to stop (Grace Slick, Mick, Keith, many more) is frankly absurd. Even in a court of law, when you rob a store and your buddy kills a guy in the process you can be held responsible, surely here in the court of public opinion, the same principal can be applied.

No you can't. The court has to consider every case independently and that's why the acquitted Passaro. It was Passaro who knifed Hunter, no one else. It was Hunter who prior to that pulled out a loaded gun and pointed it at the stage or at least in some direction - theres a real chance he might have fired it and actually hit someone.
The court didnt acquit the other Angels because they werent charged. Their behavior should have been reported and they whould have been prosecuted though. Had the case been about Passaro selling drugs, yes, then the Angels could have been prosecuted as a group.

Did Mrs Hunter try to make this into a civil law suit?

We agree. Not saying the self defense ruling wasn't accurate.
Just replying to the original question as to whether he was a "hero".

Just as that question wasn't part of any legal proceedings,the answer (opinion) shouldn't be held to a legal standard either. All opinion at this point.
Mine is clearly he was no hero.

Eggzactly, and then if you can do that, then why can't the Angel do the same to a black person, since that is what you seem to think happened.

Can't have it both ways.

Well I guess you will say that you just did again, but that says a lot about your arguments, etc.

Actually, I haven't mentioned and honestly don't believe race played a factor in the killing. Not sure what your motive is for sticking up for the obvious thug, including making up what you think others believe, what they really think etc.

Others expressing their opinions on it, if it differs from yours or is rational, seems to be a real trigger for you. As you say, it says a lot about you.

Learned a while back debating with someone who just wants to be contrary is futile. Carry on.

The only rational opinion is we don't know if race had anything to do with it. We do know that whites got beat up all over the place also and other blacks near the stage seemed to be doing just fine.

With this I agree: we don't know if race had anything to do with it (though I wouldn't be sure that we 'know' other blacks near the stage to be 'doing just fine' - probably so if the criterion 'doing just fine' is 'not to be killed').

However, from acknowledging the limits of our knowledge, we seem draw different morals from it. For you it seems like even suggesting the possible racist motive is strictly forbidden. For me that still sounds as a possible and even rational way to explain some of the things that were going there. Like I mentioned earlier, I don't see this as some sort of 'court room case' - when the question of providing the evidence and all that is fundamental. For me trying to make sense of it is in order to understand what was going on, is more a work of a historian or a moral philosopher than that of lawyer. To say it differently, I am more interested in 'truth' than of 'evidence', the latter being a necessary but not a sufficient reason for the former.

It is extremely simplistic and severely reductionist to sum up the nature of that day based on a few seconds of grainy, dark, handheld camera work.

I would plainly state that a lot more went on there than a drawn pistol...

Not sure how you are so certain of the gang's tolerance level, let alone the specific person involved. It seems a double standard, you are convicting the group, and this specific person without any idea if they/he was racist, just because of the group he was associated with.

Well, I have gotten the impression that those strongly sticking to the evidence of that a few sec footage - like Passaro's defence team, rightly, did in the court - and denying the chance of something else having a role there, is like a case of criminals knowing that the evidence to convict them wouldn't be good enough in the court room, no matter how quilty they in reality are. So all there is for them to do is just point out to the technical evidence and ignore all the rest. And laugh all the way to freedom... I don't know from where this kind of mentality or motivation - only evidence matter, never mind the truth - derives from: is it a cold-hearted lawyer-like purism to acknowledge nothing but non-disputed evidence and disqualify anything else. Or is it more like that of using the sort of adventage they have here ('evidence' works for them beautifully in this case) in order to clear the name of Passaro and The Angels against any possible charges towards their doings at Altamont (or in general). Or is it - like I suggested earlier - the Altamont tragedy being nothing but a suitable target to project and think aloud stances in today's political world (including attitude towards racism, etc.). What I find odd with these people is the lack of any empathy towards Hunter, his family, or anyone beaten up at Altamont. Frightening.

You are the one guilty pf projecting your stance on racism that is so big in today's political world. You can't drop the issue of racism. There is no evidence that it had anything to do with race yet you keep pushing it.

Like I said before. Too way to many people nothing bad can ever happen to someone who happens to be black, it always happens because they are black. To these people everything is chalked up to racism.

Nobody knows if Hunter's race had anything to do with what happened. It is a possibility but no logical argument can be made to back it up. A better argument can be made against it. But nobody knows.

You just can't give up. You are obsessed with making this about race and anyone who won't go along with your game is wrong. I can only imagine the amount of times you throw the word racism around., Like I said before someone like you is an irresitable force.

My stance is simple. If there is no proof of racism than someone should not claim as a fact that racism was the cause. People who do that are a problem.

Could this maybe have had something to do with race? Of course but nobody knows. You are the one showing your true colors by forcing the issue when you ant know if it was an issue here. In other words you are not rational and you are the problem. You are the one with an agenda and it is obvious. Good luck with that.

Yes, there is. If you have had just followed the discussion here and tried to read mine or some other people's comments a bit more carefully, that wouldn't have come to you as any surprise (and for you no reason to even ask it now). But no, it is much easier to dismiss the course of a rational, civic discussion by not even trying to understand the others have to say. It is much easier just talk from the base on prejudices about "someone like you" (me, that is). As I can see, you are not talking to some real people here, but to some of your own ghosts or products of your own imagination. Nothing wrong with that, but it is pretty hard for me to talk on behalf of those ghosts..

I don't know enough about the gang to know they are known for not having tolerant opinions. I haven't read anything to that effect. All I read about them is they don't take lightly when someone messes w/ their bikes. The 'not being tolerant' of opinions applies more here it seems to me, check out MisterDB as an example.

No I ave no problems showing my true colors. Again my true colors are clear. If someone doesn't have evidence of racism then they should stop trying to argue that it is racism. Pretty simple really.

You are the one who got into the whole things about right singers and things like that. You have been pushing from the start.



You posted this. You are all about race period and you have an agenda.





The point of this talk is relativize the whole idea and reality of racism - by making it such a formal notion, it loses its substantive significance - the whole history and reference doesn't really matter anymore. Its scope and extension being a rather trivial issue, applying anywhere. Then we have absurd - but technically/semantically 'right' - claims like saying 'all a white jury might not have being totally just for a black kid in 1969' is actually a racist claim against these white jurors. I guess by that logic when Meredith Hunter's relatives didn't attend the trail back then because they thought they son will not get justice, they - Meredith's relatives - were 'racists'. I wonder if any of you self-claimed 'non-racists' here, by the trivial definition of the term, would have a nerve or guts or human decency to say that to their faces.

You are all about race period and you have an agenda.

Yep. It could be that I take racism more seriously than you do.

Just because one doesn't think this is race related doesn't mean one doesn't take it seriously.

** and to further clarify, I am not one of those that doesn't think it was not related to race ... my point all along is that we don't know. I just don't get the jumping to conclusions on it and then being so sure that is the way it is, despite no evidence of it (except that he has been determined to be a scumbag hell's angel, which i guess makes him guilty).
