Gangland Production, LLC, produces a documentary series for the History Channel called “Gangland”. During the development of an upcoming episode focusing on the Outlaws Motorcycle Club, Gangland requested an interview with me. By facsimile dated January 28, 2008, the show’s Story Development Coordinator requested an on-camera interview and pitched among other things: “We would appreciate [Mr. O’Neill] sharing his thoughts on being in the Outlaws, and any perspective he might have gained in prison.” (See 01/28/08 fax, Attachment A). As you’ll see, this assertion was more rhetorical than real, especially when presented with documentation showing how the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) agent utilized in its presentation is effectively a co-conspirator in the killing of LaMonte Mathias on June 28, 1994 in Rockford, Illinois. (See ATF Reports authored by Special Agent Christopher Bayless, released to the public on July 20, 2005, Attachments B thru E).
By letter dated February 4, 2008, I responded to Gangland via certified mail and offered the following:
