welcome to this special episode of the

 

wolf and the shepherd today we have with

 

us once again scott jr Ereckson scott

 

super glad you could join us again

 

happy to be here max

 

so

 

we're going to do things a little bit

 

differently today than we normally do on

 

the wolf and the shepherd

 

we're going to do a q a and i'm going to

 

do nothing but ask junior these

 

questions

 

most of these questions were submitted

 

in via either email there were some

 

youtube comments some were comments some

 

were questions so we've compiled all

 

these things together and all i'm gonna

 

do is ask junior your questions and he's

 

gonna give his answers now one caveat

 

i'm going to go ahead and mention right

 

out the bat

 

i'm not going to interrupt junior that

 

was one of the biggest comments on the

 

prior youtube of the first podcast was

 

why do you keep interrupting him why do

 

you keep interrupting him well there's

 

two answers to that number one do you

 

really think i'm gonna interrupt junior

 

Ereckson no i'm not i did a terrible job

 

editing that and chopping up some of the

 

silence parts and it does sound like i'm

 

interrupting him so we decided we're

 

going to do this completely live we're

 

not going to chop anything up we're not

 

going to censor anything we're not going

 

to do any of that you're going to see

 

just junior and i on this it's gonna be

 

me asking questions and junior giving

 

his thoughts so with all that said

 

junior let's get started so first up

 

you've written two books have you

 

planned on writing anything else

 

actually uh i do i have a plan for a

 

third book it's a

 

it's kind of a unique story and uh

 

i'm gonna go ahead and give everybody a

 

little

 

a little sneak pre preview of this thing

 

so

 

as you guys all know

 

or if you read the books you know that i

 

was adopted

 

at about two weeks old

 

uh by a good family i mean good parents

 

good people

 

uh but i had a quest you know the last

 

probably 15 years of my life to actually

 

find out

 

who uh

 

my parents were

 

and

 

where i really came from my actual dna

 

my blood

 

with the help of

 

ancestry.com and

 

uh the answer is quite remarkable uh

 

and uh this story is gonna give more

 

insight to uh

 

who i am and why i am the way i am

 

i post out some pretty unique things so

 

i'm going to leave that like that

 

gotcha so uh so there is a third book on

 

the way very cool yeah it's it i haven't

 

started yet but it's definitely gonna be

 

my next one and uh

 

and it's uh it's gonna happen nice

 

so

 

talking more about kind of books the

 

next question up since you are an author

 

do you have any other authors that you

 

really like

 

yeah that's easy max billington

 

yeah right

 

actually actually when uh i was in the

 

piano

 

i was drawn to dean coons uh

 

i like dean coos books because most of

 

locations were there right there in

 

orange county and i was familiar uh with

 

the areas uh he was talking the streets

 

the freeways so i felt i had a

 

kind of a relationship with dean koontz

 

uh

 

and i i kind of like liked to read his

 

stuff

 

well i'm sure dean would like to hear

 

that so

 

uh next up is not really a question but

 

more of a a quote and i've stole this

 

off of

 

one of your videos or one of the quotes

 

off of your video on our youtube channel

 

damn

 

i wanted to hear his story about the new

 

year's party but you interrupted him

 

once again and went a different

 

direction what do you have to say about

 

that did it did i interrupt you do you

 

have more to tell about the new year's

 

party

 

well you know uh

 

uh

 

i was i was active in the club for 32

 

years so you're talking about 32 new

 

year's parties i

 

i can't remember which one they're

 

talking about uh i'm sure there's a

 

story behind everyone and

 

i don't recall you interrupting me on

 

that

 

uh no i don't

 

got you so uh kind of an aside here

 

you say you know 32 years in the club

 

there were 32 new year's parties

 

was there maybe a

 

holiday or whatever which was the party

 

to look forward to because most people

 

you know new year's is a big deal or st

 

patrick's day was there like that once a

 

year maybe party that you always look

 

forward to that that was the big party

 

you know when uh

 

when i was uh

 

when i was active in my younger years

 

you know our parties we camped

 

we got campsites we went to campsites we

 

partied uh it was none of this hotel

 

[ __ ] you know you know i've used

 

i've used a rock for a [ __ ] pillow

 

before you know it and and and laid

 

there my own vomit i mean i'm not

 

complaining that's the way it was we

 

partied hard and and we didn't have no

 

beds it was just a party time

 

and uh

 

you know i i mean

 

there was a lot of parties a lot of good

 

times and and uh it was way different

 

back then than it is now

 

got you

 

all right so uh we had a submission

 

saying i want to join a motorcycle club

 

should i and what advice would you give

 

me

 

so what are we talking here are we

 

talking a writing club or a one percent

 

club or

 

i mean i can only assume he's talking to

 

one percenter right

 

that's that's what i'm guessing from

 

this and you know he didn't say writing

 

club i think if you ask what you know

 

whether or not i should join a writing

 

club there's probably something a little

 

bit wrong with you i'm so let's go with

 

the angle that he's talking about a you

 

know one percent or three-piece patch

 

traditional

 

motorcycle club

 

okay so look

 

this is a deal

 

you're going to join this bike club okay

 

the first thing is going to happen is

 

once you get in is you got a full

 

commitment to the bike club okay so

 

what's going to happen is you're going

 

to start distancing

 

yourself from the ones you love

 

and they're gonna notice it

 

right

 

okay second of all you got a good chance

 

of going to prison you want to go to

 

prison

 

good chance it happened to me

 

okay

 

third of all is you're accountable

 

for what your brothers do you know they

 

say i might you're yeah you're your

 

brother's keeper you're going to be your

 

brother's keeper and here's the deal you

 

get a brother and your chapter is a

 

[ __ ] idiot and he does something

 

stupid

 

guess who's accessory

 

okay

 

take all these into consideration before

 

you do anything you know what there's a

 

lot of good times

 

there is camaraderie

 

but you know what this shit's real the

 

bad is real what can happen to you is

 

real so make a decision if you're

 

willing to sacrifice these things

 

because you really need to think about

 

that there's going to be sacrifice

 

it's just not all

 

party and riding i mean

 

there's obligation commitment there's

 

dues

 

uh know the whole thing what you're

 

getting into uh

 

i hope i gave you some good advice

 

yeah sounds good

 

so you said you wrote poetry in prison

 

do you still write poetry

 

you know it's been a minute i used to my

 

mom used to ask for poetry uh

 

when i sent her a birthday card and um

 

i did it for my wife you know i kind of

 

slapped off of that stuff i probably

 

still need to do it especially for my

 

mom and my wife but

 

it's been a minute but uh i still got

 

some skills there if i have to apply it

 

yeah that makes sense so i don't

 

remember junior if i actually asked you

 

this or not but going back to that

 

poetry you said you would write poems

 

for some of the people that were in the

 

pen with you and you were selling

 

those poems i don't remember if i asked

 

you how much the going rate for a junior

 

ericsson poem was in prison so do you

 

remember how much you were selling your

 

poems for yeah that was easy it was two

 

top ramens

 

two top ramens yeah i wanted beef i want

 

[ __ ] beef top ramens i don't want the

 

chicken [ __ ] beef top ramens two of them

 

two beef top ramens okay i'm gonna put a

 

couple of those in the mail to you today

 

junior and so i expect my poem pretty

 

soon

 

[Laughter]

 

oh that's great that's great so all

 

right one for you'll be a lot of i love

 

using it yeah yeah there you go well you

 

know i i can't write poetry so i i need

 

you to write something my anniversary is

 

coming up so you know that's what i'm

 

going to give my wife for our

 

anniversary he's a poem i can do

 

something for you there we go i love it

 

okay uh next up i've seen you on tv and

 

of course heard you on this podcast

 

would you ever consider starting your

 

own podcast

 

you know i've considered it uh

 

you know

 

right now i've got a full-time job

 

i'd like to retire

 

maybe next year

 

if things allow

 

it might be something i considered maybe

 

later down the line but

 

you know i guess there's too many irons

 

in the fire right now with a job and uh

 

and uh i'm gonna try to get right into

 

the book here pretty quick a podcast

 

might be nice but it's nothing that i

 

got planned in the near future

 

okay so you're not saying no though

 

i'm not saying no you know we've

 

actually i do have a

 

another brother uh

 

that we've discussed doing a podcast

 

together uh but uh

 

and we've kind of designed a couple

 

little things about it but is it in the

 

near future now it can't be that it's

 

not that close

 

gotcha

 

i'm sure there's a lot of people that

 

would want to listen to it so so don't

 

uh

 

don't dismiss that idea just yet junior

 

harley davidson is now making electric

 

motorcycles

 

what's junior's take on electric

 

harley-davidson's

 

okay so let me think about that a minute

 

so

 

you know what i'm not one to really

 

stand in the way of the electric uh

 

movement as far as vehicles a matter of

 

fact i've been really thinking about

 

buying some stocks right now and that

 

stuff but uh

 

my concern is this you know

 

when i'm going down the road and the

 

hardy's next to me i know it's a hardy

 

by the sound of the motor you know i

 

can't

 

you know everybody said you know loud

 

pipes saved lives well you know what i

 

believe that and i think the sound of a

 

motorcycle

 

uh is part of the safety feature and

 

awareness to other vehicles i mean what

 

are you gonna do go down the freeway

 

splitting lanes on a silent bike no one

 

even hears you coming so

 

am i against them no i mean who's gonna

 

stay in the way of progress but would i

 

buy one do i i think they're safe no you

 

know you got all the odds against you

 

anyway when you're riding a bike now

 

you're going to take the sound away

 

they're not going to see you they hardly

 

ever see you to begin now they can't

 

hear you

 

yeah i totally agree with you on that

 

that that is kind of my fear with it as

 

well i mean i i do still have my harley

 

uh write it from time to time and she's

 

a loud son of a [ __ ] and

 

part of that is that loud pipe saved

 

lives this isn't me trying to rap on the

 

throttle and show off and do all that

 

crap i want you to hear me because most

 

the time you can't see me and i guess

 

and i said i wasn't gonna do any

 

opinions but i think you're gonna agree

 

with me on this one

 

when you're in the cage when you're in

 

your regular vehicle and you miss a bike

 

you almost feel like [ __ ] right you're

 

like i didn't see that guy

 

and you think to yourself man that could

 

have been me you know because i ride a

 

bike too and i didn't see that guy how

 

are these people you know in cages

 

missing all these bikes and i literally

 

just missed one

 

i agree 100 you know the thing is in

 

in california

 

these guys are [ __ ] splitting lanes

 

man bam i mean you're going on the road

 

they're splitting lanes

 

on these bikes uh most of the time you

 

can hear them coming which is a

 

a good feature you know good safety

 

feature but you have guys splitting

 

lanes on bikes you can't even hear

 

you're gonna cut somebody out there's

 

it's gonna be a mess that's just my

 

opinion

 

i agree with you yeah we

 

we share the same opinion on that all

 

right next up uh you said you and this

 

is a quote you said you quote did a lot

 

of damage in the club end quote can you

 

elaborate on that

 

i can't elaborate on that

 

all right works for me

 

if you could have done it over again

 

would you have stayed in hawaii

 

you know what i'll be honest with you

 

so i went to hawaii when i was uh

 

a junior in high school

 

and from the day i got there i [ __ ]

 

hated it i hated it you know i'm not

 

bagging on the state of hawaii

 

but uh you know i got i got plucked from

 

a high school out here in san diego

 

put into a high school in hawaii with

 

all these guys that have grown up

 

together

 

uh

 

here i was all of a sudden with a bunch

 

of dudes that

 

had grown up since grammar school

 

together all local boys and i wasn't

 

accepted well

 

so it wasn't a good experience for me i

 

mean

 

you know i was fighting dudes at the

 

beach i was fighting dudes on the

 

football fields

 

you know i was fighting dudes on the way

 

home from school

 

and uh

 

uh after a couple certain things you

 

know i made the football team i became a

 

starting guard

 

uh once they've seen that i was a badass

 

uh i became one of them

 

but the process of uh

 

being accepted wasn't fun you know so

 

from the day i got there i was plotting

 

a way to get back to california to the

 

mainland as they call it

 

uh

 

so

 

you know hawaii's hawaii it it it's a

 

it's a it's small

 

there's not a lot to see you can see it

 

all in a day two days it's expensive

 

oh

 

no i don't regret leaving one bit

 

so uh follow up to that is hawaii what

 

most

 

like you say mainland americans think it

 

is we see the commercials of you know

 

basically the american paradise right

 

this uh holiday destination a vacation

 

destination is it really that

 

you know if you want to go to hawaii my

 

advice is you know go to the island of

 

kauai uh it's the jungle isle uh

 

you know they they shoot movies here i i

 

think uh uh uh

 

what's the dinosaur movie oh uh jurassic

 

park i think jurassic park was shot on

 

kauai i mean

 

uh oahu where i lived is you know high

 

uh

 

businesses i mean i lived on the

 

windward side

 

but

 

it's pretty modernized

 

i mean you know you got all the same

 

stuff in hawaii you know high-rises

 

crime hookers i mean it's all the same

 

stuff in downtown honolulu nothing's

 

any different so if you're going to go

 

there go to maui or kauai somewhere you

 

can enjoy the beaches

 

the palm trees the coconuts and uh but

 

prepared be prepared

 

to bring a good-sized credit card

 

because you're going to need it over

 

there

 

right yeah it's not cheap not cheap in

 

fact there's like even tv commercials

 

where it's like you know this

 

hamburger's 99 cents but not in alaska

 

in hawaii and i always picture

 

everything being just so much more

 

expensive over there so yeah

 

so people have said to other people

 

i've been approached by one percent of

 

clubs to join so we had one specific

 

question where this guy's saying he

 

knows another guy that's saying i've

 

been approached by one percent of clubs

 

to join and his actual question is is

 

that [ __ ]

 

well you know i can only speak for

 

myself uh so let me tell you how

 

i would do it

 

so

 

what i do is if i see somebody that i

 

think could be

 

an

 

asset to a motorcycle club say my

 

motorcycle club at the time

 

uh

 

i would ask them if they would like to

 

hang out

 

come to a party

 

go for a ride

 

because you know what i want to get to

 

know this person

 

and then what i'm going to do is i'm

 

going to wait it could take a year year

 

now i'm going to wait for him to ask me

 

to prospect i'm not asking anybody to

 

prospect i'm not asking anybody to join

 

this club they have to earn that they're

 

going to ask me they're going to have to

 

[ __ ] ask me is the way it goes you

 

know what i might ask you to come around

 

as a guest

 

but i'm not going to i'm not going to

 

offer you a pass you know what you got

 

to earn that you got to come to me after

 

you hung around and say hey i'd like to

 

prospect and then i'm going to

 

contemplate that and tell you what i

 

think you're ready that's how that goes

 

you know if a club comes up and says hey

 

you want to join my club beware some me

 

right

 

that's my opinion

 

oh uh

 

so you made me have like two questions

 

but i'm just going to stick to the one

 

you use the term asset i've i've

 

identified somebody that might be an

 

asset can you elaborate on the assets

 

you might be looking for

 

yes i'm looking for brotherhood i'm

 

looking for a guy that's got brethren

 

i'm looking for a guy that ain't gonna

 

leave me

 

hanging somewhere if she goes [ __ ]

 

south you know what i'm saying i'm

 

looking for a guy right

 

that that that that if i need a ride

 

somewhere he's gonna come get me i'm

 

looking for a guy that if i'm sick he's

 

gonna call me on the phone i'm looking

 

for a guy that if i'm hungry he's gonna

 

invite me to his house to eat if i need

 

a place to stay buy me to his house to

 

sleep that's an asset

 

you know what and if the guy can fight

 

that's an extra

 

but i'm looking for a brother first of

 

all you know what i'm saying

 

that's what i'm looking for i don't give

 

a [ __ ] you can be trained to do all the

 

rest of the other [ __ ] [ __ ] you

 

know what i'm saying i want somebody

 

that's got it right [ __ ] here in

 

their [ __ ] heart a brotherhood and

 

that's that's an asset

 

would you agree that can't be taught

 

the the brotherhood part it's either in

 

you or it's not

 

well you know what there's two two

 

reasons somebody joins the club

 

they're looking for brotherhood and

 

they've got it in them right

 

or they're they're a coward they're

 

looking for protection

 

so

 

you know what i'm a good judge of

 

character and the prospect period is to

 

weed that out

 

when you say weed that out meaning weed

 

out whether or not they're a brother

 

looking for why they want to come in

 

what it's all about i mean what they

 

want to do they want to come in and for

 

what

 

for more girlfriends i i don't know what

 

what they what they're coming for some

 

kind of a

 

you know what i want a guy that's going

 

to come in that wants to be a brother

 

that wants to offer himself 100 as a

 

brother brotherhood and that is the main

 

thing

 

i'm not looking for nothing else like i

 

said if the guy can fight and he ain't

 

and and you know we you don't want no

 

[ __ ] that's for sure if the guy can

 

handle himself and he's got all the

 

brotherhood that's an asset

 

and that's the kind of people i would

 

look for

 

when uh when i was in the club

 

gotcha

 

so i know this one might be touchy and

 

this was a submitted question so junior

 

don't get mad at me because i think i

 

already know some of the answer to this

 

so so don't scream at me

 

are clubs really gangs

 

and why are clubs called gangs

 

well

 

here's what i gotta say to that

 

so

 

a motorcycle club

 

it's made up of men

 

okay it's made up of individuals made up

 

of human beings i mean you're only going

 

to get what you get

 

you're not recruiting perfect people

 

most the guys got issues or they

 

wouldn't be coming in a bike club anyway

 

so

 

this is what it boils down to

 

the people where you recruit in your

 

club is what your club is gonna be okay

 

uh do i use the word gang i've never

 

used it and i refuse to use it as a

 

motorcycle club

 

but i can see where maybe

 

some clubs want to recruit a bunch of

 

gangsters a bunch of a bunch of idiots a

 

bunch of knuckleheads

 

ah

 

i don't know you know personally i think

 

the gang is phrased or something used by

 

law enforcement

 

uh but

 

you know it

 

do i refer to a motorcycle club as a

 

gang no i refuse to do it i think it's

 

more of a law enforcement term but then

 

again you know you are who you recruit

 

you know you want good you got to

 

recruit good people solid people

 

uh

 

you've got to have rules and regulations

 

you've got to do background checks you

 

you got to know what you're doing when

 

you're bringing these people in

 

and that's and that's what you got to do

 

got you

 

so

 

back in your day

 

and once again i'm just quoting what

 

somebody's saying so back in your day if

 

you saw someone wearing a support your

 

local mongols t-shirt in a bar or

 

wherever you might see them

 

what would you do

 

so if i ran into that what i would do is

 

i would probably buy him another beer

 

because i bought him the first because i

 

gave him the [ __ ] shirt

 

because they ain't getting them shirts

 

was to come from one of us

 

so if he's wearing that shirt

 

he's supporting me i'm supporting him

 

all right so so that's kind of

 

interesting that leads me to an extra

 

question there so you can't just go on

 

you know amazon and buy a support your

 

local mongols t-shirt

 

you're gonna have to get that from a

 

club member is what you're saying

 

well well in a real one i guess so let's

 

put it that way

 

i keep i keep forgetting that

 

you know i was in the club 40 years ago

 

i'm talking about you know when you tell

 

me this i'm thinking about when i came

 

in

 

ah

 

i i i guess can you just buy them things

 

online is that how it is now i mean it

 

used to be the it used to be the

 

chapters made them uh

 

and they they gave them out to friends

 

and family and

 

people they like

 

i

 

i don't really

 

like i said you know when i when i uh

 

when i was doing my thing mongols

 

support stickers support shirts they

 

came from us that's how they got them

 

and if you were aware when you got them

 

from us and you know what i'll buy you a

 

beer

 

so of course in in this did say back in

 

your day right so you would have known

 

it might not have been you

 

but one of your brothers gave that

 

person that

 

and in that definition then you realize

 

they're

 

good folk

 

that's a terrible

 

word but yeah they're good

 

i'm gonna go for that hey you know what

 

back in the day

 

uh

 

we needed all the support we could get

 

ah

 

it wasn't no it wasn't no [ __ ] cake

 

walk when i came in you know what it was

 

noah

 

it wasn't no game

 

and uh

 

like i said anybody wearing a support

 

shirt that's important uh the mongols

 

motorcycle club

 

back in my day i think that was a

 

question right back in my day

 

yeah uh if they were wearing that shirt

 

they were one they were close to us

 

and i'm more or less connected to

 

somebody in the chapter almost 100

 

percent sure if they're wearing that

 

shirt so uh i would probably know them

 

if they had that shirt on back in my day

 

and like i said i'd buy them another

 

beer

 

not only that but i'd have their back in

 

a bar

 

ah

 

and they better have mine too if they're

 

wearing that shirt

 

absolutely

 

so i know you alluded to this a little

 

bit earlier with the third book

 

uh

 

that that one caught me off guard but

 

this kind of maybe goes into that

 

question your last name is Ereckson

 

so were your ancestors vikings

 

no

 

so

 

i'm going to give a little there's

 

another little a little tester

 

so my heritage

 

my mother is full-blooded italian

 

and my father was a

 

a russian german jew so i'm half italian

 

half jewish

 

i'm not norwegian i'm not a viking

 

Ereckson is my adopted name i'm proud of

 

the Ereckson name

 

ah

 

that's what i go by i'll go buy it my

 

whole life you know i was raised by

 

gene erinson genevieve Ereckson and uh

 

uh i couldn't ask for better parents

 

oh that's cool so uh with your adopted

 

parents then

 

were they

 

uh descended from vikings

 

uh no i believe my father

 

my mother was full-blooded italian my

 

adopted mother's full-blooded italian

 

and uh

 

my father was uh my adopted father was

 

from texas

 

and uh i'm not sure with his background

 

uh our the last name Ereckson er e is a

 

little different spelling

 

i know there was uh

 

some american native in his family um

 

i believe cherokee

 

uh

 

and i'm not really sure really

 

they were just

 

where they came from on my dad's side

 

on my adopted mother's side uh

 

she was born in north shell new york

 

um

 

and uh she's my adopted mother's italian

 

as well as my uh biological mother was

 

full-blooded italian

 

got you

 

so uh moving back towards uh mongols

 

again uh

 

jesse ventura a name most people

 

recognize uh has always been said was a

 

mongol did you ever meet him and what do

 

you know about

 

him you know i got to be honest with you

 

the jesse ventura thing uh he he was in

 

before my time even though

 

he came from my area i was a san diego

 

chapter in 80

 

and i believe he was either san diego or

 

south bay chapter which was the same

 

basically same area

 

uh my san diego chapter was east county

 

san diego

 

and uh south beach after was south

 

county san diego

 

uh i'm not sure really what chapter i'm

 

not sure which one he was in

 

but uh

 

by the time i came in he was gone

 

uh from what i understand

 

uh he wasn't in for a long time maybe a

 

couple of years but uh i really can't

 

comment anything about jesse ventura i

 

don't know him i know him

 

as a wrestler

 

but i really never had a chance to know

 

him as a brother

 

got

 

you do you believe in god

 

yes

 

i i know that is like a yes no question

 

but uh you know you want to elaborate on

 

that i mean especially you know i've had

 

a couple of issues uh you know let me

 

give uh

 

i'm not gonna sit here and preach on

 

tape you know do i believe in organized

 

religion

 

not really i'm not really an organized

 

religion kind of guy but i'm gonna tell

 

you some experiences i had

 

you know it seems like every time

 

i've really needed something and i've

 

wanted something and i've

 

been mad enough to get down on my knees

 

and ask for it i've got it you know let

 

me give an example

 

uh

 

i got a rid of habeas corpus on my last

 

case

 

uh

 

i got down on my knees after my

 

uh

 

all my uh

 

appeal

 

were exhumed i didn't have any chance

 

for appeal so he went to rid of habeas

 

i got down on my knees and i prayed to

 

god hey you know what i asked him i said

 

i need some help here

 

you know i didn't

 

do the whole [ __ ] thing they said i'm

 

just getting out here

 

and i got a reversal on my case and you

 

know the judge that reversed it said he

 

hadn't reversed the case in 25 years the

 

same guy that sends me

 

and uh i believe it was divine

 

intervention i mean

 

how many people do in a 14 year sentence

 

get a

 

an overturn on a really habeas corpus

 

ah

 

and i prayed and uh it happened and you

 

know what

 

i believe that it was a higher power

 

that did it

 

uh it doesn't happen

 

uh

 

and that's that's my belief on that

 

so uh to kind of add to that do you see

 

a lot of that when you go to prison and

 

you see some people that

 

maybe were not a god believer or a

 

christian or you know and you know

 

choose your flavor christian jew muslim

 

and they get in that prison situation

 

and they realize you know i i've got to

 

have something like a higher power to

 

help get me through this did did you

 

experience that among you know the

 

people that you were in prison with

 

you know there's there's a couple

 

different kinds of people you know

 

there's people that maybe go to the

 

church to hide

 

uh there's people that go to church

 

because you're believers you know i

 

think on the yard we were on the ark

 

we all knew which ones were which

 

and uh

 

the ones that were true believers

 

um

 

we were accepted as believers and yeah

 

you know you know who's who why they're

 

going the reasons

 

you know i

 

yeah

 

yeah that makes sense

 

so uh

 

a popular question and uh hopefully this

 

one doesn't surprise you and honestly i

 

don't know if a man or a woman asked

 

this question but

 

how many women have you been with

 

okay let me count one

 

two

 

three uh you know what

 

hey

 

i'm gonna tell you this

 

i'm happily married

 

i got respect from my wife she's my

 

partner she's my life partner and uh

 

that's something i wouldn't even want to

 

comment on i i i

 

that's just something i won't go there

 

on out of respect for my wife and uh all

 

the females that are watching this i

 

i'm not going to comment on that

 

gotcha perfect so uh

 

going kind of along those same lines

 

does the patch

 

make it easier to get women into bed

 

well i'm pretty sure we can guarantee

 

this one's coming from a man right

 

so does the patch make it easier to get

 

women into bed

 

yes

 

we're good with just a yes on that you

 

don't want to allow i mean i don't know

 

how you want me to elaborate on that i i

 

i don't want to you know i'm just uh

 

uh something about that

 

something about that fabric on your back

 

uh

 

draws them in and that is uh

 

that is a fact

 

so kind of going back to

 

you know the reasons why people want to

 

join a club that maybe are the wrong

 

reasons

 

and you know you talk about that asset

 

that figuring somebody out

 

i would imagine there would be a lot of

 

people that might want to join a club to

 

put that fabric on their back so they

 

can try to get women in bed was that

 

some kind of a vetting thing you know

 

maybe back in the day where

 

somebody's coming along and you're

 

thinking okay this guy's just

 

hunting women and he wants that patch on

 

his back and that's really what he's

 

here for well you know that's what i

 

said earlier that's what the prospecting

 

period is about you know we're trying to

 

i can't say weird because i'm not i'm

 

not involved with anything right now

 

with the club you know i i'm just not

 

involved but when i was doing it

 

that's what prospect is about you want

 

to try and find out the guys real reason

 

for wanting to join this club

 

and you know like i said you know

 

there's a there's a myth there's a lot

 

of drugs there's a lot of women well you

 

know what maybe back in my day

 

uh there was a little bit of that going

 

on i don't think it was to the extent of

 

what everybody thought it was

 

uh but

 

you know does a guy want to join

 

for the cold beer and and and and and

 

and the sex

 

you got to try to figure that out

 

because uh

 

uh

 

we're we're not we're not looking for a

 

guy like that i'm not looking i wasn't

 

looking for a guy like that you know

 

what i'm saying i keep saying we're like

 

i'm like i said i wasn't looking for a

 

guy like that

 

uh

 

so

 

you know that's part of the betting i

 

guess of it you know you the prosthetic

 

is

 

trying to figure out who these guys are

 

so uh one question that kind of

 

just kind of popped into my mind this

 

isn't on the list uh let's talk about

 

tattoos okay so

 

you know you've done this a couple of

 

times in the video you we can tell

 

you've got tattoos right

 

are tattoos necessary to be in a

 

motorcycle club

 

no

 

you know you you always hear that uh and

 

this is by the way from my dad there's

 

only two types of people that get

 

tattoos and that's bikers and sailors

 

and my dad was in the navy and he

 

somehow got out of the navy without

 

getting a tattoo

 

but he always told me the only two

 

people that get tattoos are bikers and

 

sailors now you got to remember my dad's

 

85 years old right so that was back in

 

his day nowadays tattoos are fashionable

 

you you've got everybody in their

 

brother gets a tattoo and it's not that

 

big of a deal but

 

let's go to back in your day right

 

was that almost kind of true that it was

 

bikers and sailors with tattoos and you

 

know how important are those tattoos to

 

the biker culture

 

well you know i think a tattoo is a

 

representation of what's most important

 

to the individual you know some guys get

 

their babies names on them somebody guys

 

get their wife's name tattooed on their

 

chest you know i've got my weight my

 

wife's name tattooed on me

 

uh

 

and then

 

depending on their loyalty to whatever

 

their loyalties are they they tattoo

 

their their loyalties whether it be

 

words or insignias or emblems on their

 

bodies you know if

 

i could see where maybe if some guys are

 

100 loyal to a motorcycle club you know

 

they're gonna want a tattoo that

 

that brand

 

uh of the motorcycle club insignia on to

 

show their loyalty so

 

uh

 

i maybe your dad had a little something

 

going on that thought yeah i think uh

 

you know the guys sailors

 

you know uh

 

branded their loyalty to the country by

 

whatever uh you know

 

by putting the name of their ship on

 

them or

 

loyalty to their wives by their names

 

maybe they thought they weren't coming

 

back from the service

 

you know like i guess you know tattoos

 

represent what you're loyal to i think

 

and

 

and you want to mark them on your body

 

and show everybody what your loyalties

 

are i think that's what a tattoo is

 

so somebody that has you know

 

what i'm going to guess is a pretty

 

decent amount of ink

 

what do you think about this new thing

 

with the face tattoos i've got to ask

 

somebody that has tattoos like

 

you know everybody's getting tattoos on

 

their face now what what do you think

 

about that being kind of old school with

 

the tattoos

 

well you know what i'm not a face tattoo

 

guy

 

uh

 

you know what i still need to earn a

 

living for my family you know i just

 

need to go out in public and uh

 

i draw enough attention as it is i don't

 

need any tattoos on my face

 

um i'm thinking maybe the guy that

 

tattoo on his face

 

is uh self-employed or inherited a lot

 

of money maybe he's not worried about

 

anything else but

 

uh me personally i'm not a face tattoo

 

fan

 

got you

 

all right so uh

 

this next one might

 

kind of come a little touchy so i'm

 

gonna

 

do this as

 

you know

 

as clear as i i can do it without any

 

disrespect meant

 

you were convicted of murder

 

and of course this is in your books

 

did you really do it

 

yes

 

do you regret doing it

 

you know i'm gonna tell you

 

i think about that incident often in my

 

head

 

do i regret taking a human life i do you

 

know i

 

uh i wish there was another way around

 

it

 

but at the time it was necessary at the

 

time it was a necessary thing for the

 

mongols to do

 

a necessary thing for me to do

 

and

 

it had to be done it was just necessary

 

it had to be done so

 

uh

 

do i regret taking a life

 

i do

 

and and i'm truly sorry about it

 

do i regret

 

what happened no i don't

 

got you uh

 

i have one last question that uh

 

we want to ask that uh some people have

 

shot in some stuff but before i ask that

 

question

 

uh

 

has there anything

 

that i've missed is is there anything i

 

missed that you know maybe

 

somebody should have shot a question to

 

you that hadn't been in the books hadn't

 

been on the podcast hadn't been covered

 

that you just like say you know hey

 

i don't know why

 

no one has asked me this question and

[ __ ] at everybody tell a bunch of

Scott "Junior" Ereckson

Author

Joining the San Diego [DAGO] chapter of the Mongols Motorcycle club in 1980 at the young age of 20 is how Scott Ereckson got the nickname Junior. After serving prison time for the first retaliation in the well known war against the Hell's Angels, Junior became the youngest National President of the Mongols Motorcycle club at the young age of 28.

Serving as National President in 1988-89, then again from 1996 to 1998, Junior has also been a member of 7 different chapters and a founder of 3.

Now being a member of the Mongols M.C. for over 30 years, Junior has held every office obtainable in the club and become one of the most recognized and respected in the outlaw biker world. Junior has been part of a nationally televised show on National Geographic called the Outlaw Bikers, Masters of Mayhem.

The Unknown Mongol is a history, story and tale of unforgettable experiences throughout the 30 years Junior has been apart of the Mongols Motorcycle club. Come experience life as he know's it... as The Unknown Mongol. Find the book on his website or Amazon.com
