Word of the Week - "Boys"

Word of the Week -
BOYS ...

[the expert witness] has special knowledge on code and jargon used by the HAMC [Hells Angels Motorcycle Club]. Based on his opinion, and having listened to the admissible intercepted communications and considered them in context with surveillance evidence ... those individuals involved in this investigation who were associated with the HAMC sometimes used the word “boys” as code to mean others involved in the HAMC, and the word “house” to mean one of their clubhouses. However, given the generic quality of these words, the context must support that interpretation.
