The Iron Order Outlaw Motorcycle Gang

August 6, 2014

Senior military officers continue to call the Iron Order Motorcycle Club an outlaw motorcycle gang or OMG.

The Iron Order is a fast growing and aggressive motorcycle club that has branded itself as a “law abiding motorcycle club.” According to the ATF, “The Iron Order is one of the fastest growing motorcycle clubs in the United States. Members wear a traditional three-piece patch with a State bottom rocker. The fact that they wear the State bottom rocker has infuriated the HAMC, Outlaws, Iron Horsemen, Pagans and Bandidos. More importantly, many of their members are police and corrections officers, active-duty military and/or government employees and contractors.”

Cop Club

Recently John C. Whitfield, one of the founders of the Iron Order was quoted as saying the club “was started by a former secret-service agent in 2004…. More than half of our guys are military or law enforcement.” Whitfield also identified an Iron Order member who is an ATF Agent in Oklahoma as a source of information for the club.

Many police officers in the United States seem to regard the Iron Order as a force for good in a Manichaean struggle with evil motorcycle clubs. The distinction between who is naughty and who is nice is convenient for the sorts of police who want to perfect America through the use of extra legal violence.

The idea that the Iron Order is somehow more law abiding than other motorcycle clubs has blatantly contaminated the stymied investigation of the murder of  Zachariah “Nas T” Tipton outside Nippers Beach Grille in Jacksonville Beach, Florida in late June. Tipton was a member of the Black Pistons Motorcycle Club. He was shot in the head and killed by a member of the Iron Order. The confessed killer was released by Jacksonville Beach police without being charged. His name and most details of the murder, including the medical examiner’s report, remain official secrets.

Camp Pendleton

Military commanders however, continue to see the Iron Order less ambiguously than policemen do. For example a document recently distributed to service members at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton threatened sailors and Marines who join the Iron Order with “administrative or disciplinary actions, including administrative separation or appropriate punitive action.” The document was issued under the authority of DOD Instruction 1325.06, titled “Handling Dissident and Protest Activities Among Members of the Armed Forces.”

The document defines Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs “as organizations whose members use their motorcycle clubs as conduits for criminal enterprise. The following motorcycle clubs are recognized by the DOJ and/or California state and local Law Enforcement Agencies as OMGs: The Bandidos, Black Pistons, Hells Angels, Mongols, Outlaws, Sons of Silence, Pagans, Vagos, Green Nation, Green Machine, Military Misfits, Filthy Bastards, Iron Order, Grunts MC, Brotherhood, Vietnam Vets, Devils Disciples, Legacy Vets, Peckerwoods, and Diablos. This list is inclusive of identified OMGs in the southern California area but may not include all others outside that region.”

The document specifically forbids active participation in any of those clubs and states that “Active participation includes, but is not limited to, fundraising; demonstrating or rallying; recruiting, training, organizing, or leading members; distributing material (including posting on-line); knowingly wearing gang colors or clothing; having tattoos or body markings associated with such gangs or organizations; or otherwise engaging in activities in furtherance of the objective of such gangs or organizations that are detrimental to good order, discipline, or mission accomplishment or are incompatible with military service.”

    .look at the iron order as a police fbi .dea.cia.iomc. If brothers from other clubs continue to buck them is doing excactly what they want. So they undermine our world from the inside.there is no honor being on being on both sides of fence.

    Fuck these wanna be pussies! They are hiding behind their badges! They don’t deserve to have their name mentioned except when their bought pathes

    As a former member of iron order, I seen a lot, after seeing 2 kilos of blow, i resigned. The police officers, correction officers, active U.S. Army & navy members, and many others have a hidden drug and prostitution network up and running. I have seen thousands of guns, and loads of drugs. Think about it, claim to be law abiding, but they are not. this keeps the real MC 1% and cops off of them. The 1% mc should look closer, as the IO had a president that lived on Aberdeen proving grounds and a NCO in the army who would transport and over see distribution. he even pipped his wife out. correction officer in Annapolis, well think how this was very convenient!, truck drivers who helped transported state to state. IO is not law abiding in no way, when many good law abiding members found out about what was going on, they resigned. IO has a multi level, new members will not see until tested and have some years of membership, so many do not know what is going on. As for the former Maryland president that the military transferred to Texas, well he is still active. In addition IO Maryland chapters and PA, VA, NJ, DC chapters have many convicts as members who do not even use real names. So take a close look, they are not as they appear, playing the law abiding, law enforcement members, military members.

    To all you ignorant assholes who keep commenting on the Iron Order MC, not knowing a damn thing about it, they are actually /not/ an OMG. If you did the slightest bit of research you would have discovered that they do charities often, not to mention just go on their website and read all the nice things people have to say about them.

    As far as the “Cop Club” thing goes, I live near 3 IO chapters, not a single one has a LEO in it. So do some research before y’all run your mouths about a good club. Yeah, some chapters have some bad seeds, but not all of IO is bad. All 3 chapters I met are really, really decent people.

  5. NotCynical Says:

    Research? The IO themselves claim publicly they are LE, CO, military and veteran. ALL MCs do charities so that doesn’t mean a thing. Maybe you, Cynical, are the one who needs to do research.

  7. Timebomb Says:

    Really if they dont have cops in there club why do they hang out with most of the LEMC in chicago

  8. Noodles Says:

    I am personally in the “hanging around” period with an IO chapter. They have been to my house,met my family and Ive been to theirs. I am former law enforcement and welcomed there completely. They gave me a support shirt and I fully expect they will invite me to prospect. From what I see so far they are very humble,nice and respectful good people. They told me convicted felons,drugs or anger problems are not welcome. They made it clear they do not concern themselves with OMG or what they are doing and want to just have their club,ride motorcycles and mind their own business.

  9. Shovelhead Says:

    Good luck…you’re gonna need it!

    “…or anger problems are not welcome.”

    Noodles, you must’ve blinked.

    Agreed, you’ll need the luck.

    Recall, those who forget the past (or ignore it), are destined to repeat it.

    This happens all too often. Folks want to live out some weird MC fantasy so they jump at the first thing by they see. I’d imagine the UO is the only club you have met with. Otherwise, any other club would have likely told you to avoid those shit stains. If you went to them after that, it would simply display idiocy. You’re not an idiot are you? If not, then my assessment is proven correct, and you’ve only met with the UO.

    If you find out why they’re always grabbing each others ass, or photographing each other doing gay shit, please come back and explain it to us. It’s fucking bizarre.

    Respect to those who’ve earned it (will never be the UO)

  13. panamaa Says:


    The problem is they don’t mind their own fucking business. They run their mouths and back it up by calling their cop buddies when their mouth overloads their ass… Their posers pure and simple, their fucking murders also, cold blooded murders.. They have no respect, they have no morals and they live by no code… Their scum and if you hang around with them you’re the same fucking way… As Shovlehead said “Good luck…you’re gonna need it!”…… And if you’re with them…

    Fuck you…

    Naive noodles will figure it out, once they’ve taken his ca$h for the iron-on.

    El Tigre, if IO is so great, why do the LEMC’s not want anything to do with them?
