Some law enforcement officials claim that the patch is only awarded to those who have committed, or are prepared to commit, murder on behalf of the club.

After a lengthy, phased process, a prospective member is first deemed to be a 'Hang-around', indicating that the individual is invited to some club events or to meet club members at known gathering places.
If the Hang-around is interested, he may be asked to become an 'Associate', a status that usually lasts a year or two. At the end of that stage, he is reclassified as 'Prospect', participating in some club activities, but not having voting privileges, while he is evaluated for suitability as a full member.
The last phase, and highest membership status, is 'Full Membership' or ' Full-Patch'. Prospects are allowed to wear only a bottom rocker with the State or Territory name along with the rectangular 'MC' patch.
To become a full member, the Prospect must be voted on by the rest of the full club members. This process allows each voting member to become familiar with the subject and to ask any questions of concern prior to the vote.
Successful admission usually requires more than a simple majority, and some clubs may reject a Prospect for a single dissenting vote. Some form of formal induction follows, wherein the Prospect affirms his loyalty to the club and its members.
