What a load of garbage.
I know a "1%er" -- we work for the same company -- nicest guy you could hope to meet.
ALL the biggest Motorcycle Clubs are "1%" clubs -- Hell's Angels, Outlaws, Mongols, Bandidos... I think those are the main ones (if not the only 1% clubs).
Not to say they don't have their share of bad dudes, but to claim that the 1% patch = murderer is dubious. It's a club-wide thing.
They look at it as they are the 1% who lives "outside the box" so to speak. It doesn't automatically imply "criminal." -- although I think the above poster was correct about the speech.
I think it was something to the effect of 99% of motorcycle clubs live within the limits of the law, the other 1% are outlaws. America has always had a fascination with "outlaws" so, it makes some sort of sense that they would take the label and run with it.
