WA Lege Day 101: Cop killer at bill signing?

OLYMPIA – One of the people gathered around the table as Gov. Chris Gregoire signed the bill outlawing “motorcycle profiling” last week may have been a member of an outlaw motorcycle gang who once killed a Portland police officer.
The above photo of the event above, first published in The Spokesman-Review, has law enforcement officials studying the faces and patches on some motorcyclists who applauded as the bill was signed and posed with Gregoire and several legislators.
KIRO News radio in Seattle reported Wednesday that its law enforcement sources identified one of the bikers as Robert Christopher, who was convicted of killing a Portland police officer during a raid on the Outsiders’ motorcycle club’s headquarters in 1979. Christopher is the third in from the left, KIRO law enforcement sources said.(For more on Christopher, check out Austin Jenkin's piece from Northwest Public Radio.)
