They'll Have To Turn In Those Leather Vests For Editing

In last Saturday's Vancouver Sun the headline reads:

I checked the body copy in case it was a typo, but no--the name of the biker gang appeared several times in the text, each time without the possessive apostrophe that is so obviously needed. As the Sun is a credible newspaper, I can only surmise that the Hells Angels, despite their reputation for grammatical punctiliousness, don't use an apostrophe in their name. I'll have to point this out the next time I see one of their associates.
