The Iron Order Alibi

September 23, 2014

All Posts, News

If statements made by a high ranking member of the Iron Order Motorcycle Club are true, the investigation into the murder of Black Pistons patch holder Zach Tipton was corrupted almost from the start by the special consideration given the Iron Order by Florida police.

In a letter to club members published on a members only section of the Iron Order website on July 5, John C. “Shark” Whitfield (photo above), who serves as “Director of the Division of Legal Affairs” for the three piece patch club as well as Nortonville, Kentucky City Attorney, advises his fellow club members about what he refers “to as the ‘Florida Incident.’” Whitfield’s club duties apparently include acting as a lobbyist and liaison with various police departments.

Criminal Situation

“I have been a litigator for over 30 years, dealing with both civil and criminal cases my whole career,” Whitfield begins. “Because of that experience, I know that in a criminal situation it is important… the client understand (sic) that after the facts are ascertained, they must let me do the talking publicly about it (if need be). The client needs to have no comment about any of this. The same applies here…. My clients in this situation are the IOMC and the brothers and prospects who may be close to this

“I have been in contact with law enforcement there,” Whitfield states, “and offered my services in any way they deem appropriate. They are professionals and are doing a great job. So as to keep this investigation clean, we do not need to talk about this. Should they want to interview further any of you, I will make the arrangements for that to happen. Consequently, please be patient and wait for my call on this.”

After bragging that he had volunteered to collaborate with Florida investigators, and warning club members to let him do all the talking, Whitfield began spinning the murder of Zach Tipton to present his club in the best possible light.

My investigation so far tells me that had there not been reckless aggressive behavior by persons that started this, none of this would have happened. My basis for this comes from my time down in Florida, as I (accompanied by Associate Division of Legal Affairs Tracker) went to Jacksonville and interviewed the brothers/prospects in full. We went to scene and chronicled the information we needed there, spoke to law enforcement there to gain a better perspective and have taken other steps that I will not outline in this thread. Although much has been done, there is still a lot to do. We are prepared to do it with vigilance.”

Less sophistically stated, Whitfield interviewed investigators to find out where the case was going then used that knowledge to help the persons who were involved in the shooting construct their alibis. He was assisted by Major Darrell “Tracker” Robinson of the Marine Corps Logistics Command.

Stand Your Ground

This case is a clear “Stand Your Ground” case Whitfield announces.

The work that we have done there thus far indicates that this statute will be the primary avenue of defense should any legal proceedings against my clients ensue,” Whitfield announces. “Hopefully they will not, as the facts as we have uncovered them thus far fit squarely with this statute. Without getting into these facts in excruciating detail, rest assured that I am confident that our brothers and prospects reasonably feared for their life due to the reckless, unreasonable actions of others, and as such defended themselves as this law gives them the right to do. I have nothing to make me feel any different. The IOMC prides itself in being law abiding, and this principle was at play in Florida. Our brothers and prospects acted within their right and within the law.”

“Remember,” Whitfield concludes, “that because of our unfettered commitment to being law abiding, and our relentless teaching of same, that one of ours did what he had to do, and within the law. Let us all follow this law abiding example, and continue to make our club the shining star for all other MC’s to see and perhaps follow.”

    Shark acts more like a celebrity than a lawyer. And CGAR is plain fucking stupid. And by the way, CGAR will likely be elected club president next go around. Seems legit to me.

    “Should they want to interview further any of you,” Is this a bad translation? A”lawyer” that publishes this kind of disjointed crap would be fired anywhere else.

    This isn’t a stand your ground case. He willingly participated in a punch up and can’t then say he was scared for his life. What kind of bitch pulls a gun during a fist fight?

    Panama, words on a screen. It’s all good. I answer to that name more often than not, but apology accepted. It made me laugh, if that helps any.

    SIZ, you may have read it, but pick up “The Dancing Wu Li Masters” by Gary Zukav. An oldie, but folks are just starting to catch on in general after 30+ years.

    That’ll keep you busy for an hour or two.

    I just want to swing in and share with you all , that I continue to find your combined knowledge and experience is far more entertaining and worthwhile than any programmed media. Rebel lays down a topic and then the world chimes in. I learn so much here, and I miss keeping up- but duty calls. I’m still off the grid re: work and my general flightiness, but I should get real internet service this month. I love the combined knowledge, humor and ability to detect & call-out bullshit, and/or apologize if necessary.
    Really – this blog has become the Center of Excellence for Reality Education.
    Thank you Rebel.

    I am just this strange mentally fucked up bonehead who never really did “well” in “life” – but I learned some things about how things work, I think. They are simple things like “trust gut,” “watch what people do, not what they say,” etc.

    Some of it was from doing media and law for 20 years. I literally used to sit in on the focus groups where millionaire lawyers would try and figure out what EXACT SINGLE WORDS would cause poor people to buy legal services. They were like “wow, people really seem to like the word ‘trust’ let’s put it in our ads!”

    As if someone with common sense did not already know that.


    I honestly think many of the people who “rule” this country are what I call “hollow men” who need focus groups to tell them what actual humans think and feel.

    Reality is real, it will just happen. That’s Taoist stuff too, and that’s from around 3000 years of experience. Someone once said to me that Taoism was “fluffy.” I pointed out that every Samurai and Ronin was also a Zen Master. It used to be in books, but is not talked about that much, post WW2 for political reasons, I think.

    I also think “Zen” people wanted to distance themselves from the true martial history of “the physics.” It’s not a faith as far as I can tell, or a philosophy.

    It’s more like organic physics, I think – literally “wu li.”


    “How organic things dance.”

    The Samurai held the power of life and death in their hands. They HAD to be able to discern actual reality, and react to it instantly.

    Sun Tzu wrote “Art of War” – but what some people do not know – is that his stuff was based on Lao Tzu. Master Tzu didn’t really “write” the Tao, so much as document some of its visible effects.


    The ancient Masters were profound and subtle.
    Their wisdom was unfathomable.
    There is no way to describe it;
    all we can describe is their appearance.

    They were careful
    as someone crossing an iced-over stream.
    Alert as a warrior in enemy territory.
    Courteous as a guest.
    Fluid as melting ice.
    Shapable as a block of wood.
    Receptive as a valley.
    Clear as a glass of water.

    Do you have the patience to wait
    till your mud settles and the water is clear?
    Can you remain unmoving
    till the right action arises by itself?

    The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
    Not seeking, not expecting,
    she is present, and can welcome all things.


    Sorry to go off on yet another tangent. It drove my last wife crazy. I am alone again. It’s ADD stuff, and is likely connected to why I never got rich. It does not matter in the end. We all end up in the same dirt nap, the rich and the poor, the good and the bad. When more people realize that, then MAYBE change will happen.

    I am an Evangelical Christian, and a member of one of the faiths that drives government crazy, since we see Godly law as supreme. We are told to follow human masters, but that God’s law is the only true law. The Founders of this Country had similar ideals, but again – not generally in history books.

    There’s just a right, and a wrong. I think that’s what I am trying to say and used too many words again.

    Things just “are.”

    Much respect to all, sorry to pontificate again, overthinking as usual, house arrest is a fucking bitch. But it’s slightly better than “being dead.” That’s fairly real, I think. IDK.


  12. Tooj Says:

    panamaa, I’ve been called that too.

  13. Mag Says:

    @StrategyisZen – agreed about the “respected at street level”. There’s an expression… “reality is what still works when the power goes out.”

    It used to be that rulers in the old days understood reality, because a) there wasn’t all this artificial electronic buffer – and b) because to get there, for the most part they had to have an authentic understanding of meat + metal = power.

    Today, it’s all about idiots like Harf and Psaki thinking that hashtags will implode the Islamic State.

  14. Jim666 Says:

    Tooj, he must have been “Grumpy”. That was a funny story I literally spit my coffee out while reading that……..

    @ Glen, Yea I myself have broken the law a few times but I have always tried to do whats rite, and still believe I was rite.
    Just because theres a law against it does not make it wrong.

    @ seventh son : Try reading for awhile before you start commenting, Id say a lot of the men on this site could really teach you something,
    That is if you listen……………

    Oh yea and
    FUCK THE io

    Tool Says:”NEVER trust a left handed midget”…

    Hey man, watch out for those right handed one’s too… Cups ( as in sports) help a lot when you get in a fight with those little fuckers…


  16. StrategyIsZen Says:


    “This lawyer running about tells me that they are concerned.”


    They are “circling wagons.” More like “circling Radio Flyer wagons.”

    1) They changed their FAQ.

    2) Major internal “girl drama” at leadership level. “Oh no, she didn’t” and crap like that. No offense to WOMEN, I am talking about “girls” right now.

    3) They are basically invisible at street level now.

    4) No new events that they plan or are seen at, as far as I know.

    5) Lawyering up.

    6) Losing the internet “troll battle.”

    7) Ratting themselves out all over the place. Cops ratting selves out.

    My intuition is that they may have had some political covering fire from either a few regional Fusion Centers, possibly DHS, etc..

    I think they lost it. My intuition, and this is just intuition, is that not every LE person hates bikers, and I think this is especially true at kind of the “national think tank” level, way up above even brass. Reason why is that bikers, in my personal opinion, have a kind of “calming effect” on the EXACT urban areas that would be most likely to pop off should stuff get sideways in America.

    Kind of mentally process what I am getting at. Just a theory right now. I have all these strange theories.

    HIGHLY THEORETICAL! – given worse case scenarios in this increasingly unstable country – who would people who can’t really ever control urban areas “like?”

    People who sow discord?

    OR – people who are respected at street level?

    Putin has his crew called “Night Wolves” – I think IO was an attempt to “make” Night Wolves here. But you can’t “make” anything. I think people at think tank levels may have just realized that.

    Much respect. Just two cents.


  17. Tooj Says:

    I can totally get behind being frustrated with Iron Order, but it is only an alibi attempt. Seems we’re still waiting on things to come out in the wash.

    This lawyer running about tells me that they are concerned. I don’t think anyone that gives a shit likes waiting and this can only be harder for the family. But the wait is still on…

    @T Hell

    “Sons of Anarchy is not real life.”

    ^^ Truth so truth that it can be touched. . .

    That is also the basic litmus test, IMHO:

    People who can’t grasp the difference between reality and media *are* the crux of the problem. This entire country is basically “governed by main media.”

    There are too many stupid people to govern it any other way. Unfortunately, it’s not governed now. It’s “RULED” with an iron fist. Imagine millions of brainwashed Zombies who follow Oprah around like a false God. And who worship at the “Temple of Miley Cyrus’ Ass.”

    “That” is America, circa 2014.

    “That” is why a non-main-media diet – is good for the soul.

    I admit she does have a nice ass, however. . . (Miley, not Oprah.)

    Um, anyways. . .

    Social media may allow for some cracks in the media wall. Large events where people can peacefully make friends and see that they are not alone, may have similar effects. These may help crack the tombs.


    Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You are like whitewashed tombs, which look beautiful on the outside but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and everything unclean. In the same way, on the outside you appear to people as righteous but on the inside you are full of hypocrisy and wickedness.

    Matthew 23:27-28


    *Never* my intent to ram my faith down anyone’s throat. Too many Christians already do that, and it irritates the f*ck out of me – I am posting this because these patterns are *ancient.*

    The “big lie” is that they do not repeat. We are a country governed by lies, held in place by main media, a deliberately f-ed up school system, large corporations who profit from this, a million mindless government bureaucrats, and millions upon millions of people who don’t seem to care.

    Other than that, things are just dandy.

    Just my two cents. Much respect. I will be here all week.

    “It could be really cool. AR could become a sort of online outlaw magazine. I have a lot of really great ideas for how AR could be developed. I’m sure you’ve probably thought of them over time too.”

    Bad news son and I hate to have to break it to you, but the Sons of Anarchy is not real life.

  25. popeye Says:

    Seventh son says-It would be really boss if you did some lifestyle pieces telling tales from the road. You must have some great connections. It would be incredible to get interviews from older club guys discussing their views of the culture and how things have evolved/ devolved in their view. Toss in some hilarious anecdotes from their lives. This world is full of characters. It would great to hear from some of them. After all, “the man who dies with the most stories wins…” Besides, a little good PR for clubs never hurt anyone and this could sure entertain a lot of guys.

    It could be really cool. AR could become a sort of online outlaw magazine. I have a lot of really great ideas for how AR could be developed. I’m sure you’ve probably thought of them over time too.

    Textbook narcissistic personality disorder. If you want amusing anedotes from on the road go out and live some. The man who dies with the most stories reads too much. Living isnt a collection of other peoples stories its a collection of our own.

  28. Base Says:

    Understanding laws and investigative methods vary from state to state. Releasing the autopsy results and or medical examiners report would have gone a long way in laying suspicions of any sort of cover up to rest.

    If not to the general public but to the immediate family and then enact a suppression order.At the very least this would have possibly put the Tipton family in their corner and would have gone a long way to lowering suspicions. Especially if the family would have come out and stated they have been included and informed of the on going investigation and are under orders to keep quite.

    What makes the SAO statements of on going investigation fall flat? Similar violent crimes that have falling within that jurisdiction. much of that information being released with in days if not immediately. The who, what & where.

    The person that pulled the trigger may not be employed by a municipal as law enforcement, he possibly could be related to someone that is, there is also a good chance that other IO members there that night were (off duty personnel). You know the ones that stripped their rags and slipped away into the night before uniforms showed up!

    In steps Whitfield. He traveled to Florida and interviewed the shooter and potential witness’s and offered his services to investigators & got a feel on what direction they were going really stinks it up even more. And leans toward “special consideration” on the part of the SAO.

    Yeah this thing stinks. Still believe should the family hire their own attorney/investigator there is plenty of evidence out there and much of it supplied by IO members themselves that any competent investigator could obtain and hang out to dry many a ego with in that group.

    Justice For Zach, may it be relentless and with out mercy for all the transgressors.

    The Aging Rebels take on Whitfield’s involvement & statements regarding this tragedy are anything but defamation. Instead it is a matter of fact and a break down of what involvement an IO member had with witness’s & investigators. Any harm done to Whitfield’s creditability lays with him and his associations.

    Example:In an article he admits a meth dealer is a close friend of his and is a good person! Yeah, meth does that to people, turns them into good people not shells of their former selves.

    Example: He freely & willingly associates with known deviant’s, condoning their antisocial behavior, then protects their actions through his office.

    And as with all the other talking heads believes if he shouts “Law Abiding” long enough and loud enough it will some how come true!


    Anyone believing they have information or idea’s as to a direction a person’s endeavor should take that they themselves had no hand in creating or crafting should be more respectful and mindful contacting that person via back channels’ instead of spewing it publicly. Such a person wishes to show their perceived superiority over others.

    Large ego’s makes one come off as trifling & look like an arrogant ass.

    Respects folks, stay frosty out there.

    Seventh Son – It’s interesting when someone fails to win an argument on logic and resorts to name calling and obscenities. Generally, that means that the person who has lowered themselves to that point…has completely and utterly lost the argument.

    For the record, unless everyone here is gay, I’d suggest insulting each other with some other comparison besides the female anatomy. Most straight men actually rather enjoy cunts and find them fairly useful. If those using that as an insult are gay, they might want to remember that they sprang out of one and their mothers do happen to have one.

  31. Tooj Says:

    And you know what? I got in a motherfucking fist fight today on the I-70 turnpike in Kansas. Fucking raining and all kinda shit, so I’m staying in the the ‘tire track’.

    Some asshole comes up behind me and gets close. Too close. Swerves recklessly round me to the left and then tries to push me right into the shoulder.

    Now I’m no coward, so I’m game and on the shoulder we go, right? Swear to God a DWARF got out of the cage.

    He glares at me and says, “I AM NOT HAPPY!”

    So I said, “So which fuckin’ one are you?”

    I’m thinkin that’s where the fight started.

    I’m just hearing fuckers keeping score…

  33. Rebel Says:

    Dear panamaa,

    Thank you for sticking up for me. Seventh Son probably bothers you a lot more than he bothers me. I think he’s trying to be constructive and helpful to me and I take what he said in that vein.


  34. Phuquehed Says:

    All I see is seventh bitch say ‘I, me, I me, law, me know!’

    Then bitches that anyone calls him on it. And the ultimate hypocrisy by the stupid fucktard – he says no one else should say anything, yet he doesn’t believe a fucktard urine odor lawyer can find and say shit for himself.

    So seventh bitch…who’s saying what and for whom, you diseased douche licker.

    @OS – Yeah, I know, but this fish-stink cunt eater just rubs wrong with his bullshit and hypocrisy. One day we’re all fuckers for saying urine odor is asswipes, the next day trying to suck Rebel’s dick with ‘friendly’ advice, etc, etc.

  35. StrategyIsZen Says:

    @Seventh Son

    Thank you for saying nice things about my posts. How does arguing with people help things?


  36. Seventh Son Says:


    Fuck you, cocksucker. It’s none of your fucking business what I write to Rebel. No one asked for your two cents you piece of dog shit. You’re just another cunt with a running mouth, a keyboard and a yellow streak a mile wide. And since I know a good deal about law, I’ll tell you shut your fucking pie hole when you start running off with your bullshit about what you think you know.

    Sorry. I don’t have anything to do with those IO fuck sticks, but that’s all you ass wipes seem to run toward when you get your balls in a sling- like a pair of little girls. If anyone is “trolling” this shit, it’s you two. You’re a pair of broken records who RARELY offer anything new or of value to a conversation.

    You and that gash, Phuqueface, have a lot in common: big fucking mouths and not brain-one in those sacks of shit you two retards call heads.

    As for you, Phuqueface, I don’t have to justify anything to you or this other cunt. You got it, motherfucker?

    Sorry. I don’t have anything to do with those IO fuck sticks, but that’s all you ass wipes seem to run toward when you get your balls in a sling- like a pair of little girls. If anyone is “trolling” this shit, it’s you two. You’re a pair of broken records who RARELY offer anything new or of value to a conversation.

    I’ve had it with this bullshit from you two assholes. No one was talking to either of you two fuck sticks to begin with.

    Rebel can speak for himself.

    You know? With all the hero worship around here, one would think you would be happy about someone trying to look out for the author. It’s worth more than a stupid click, retard.

    @Oldkewl – Hey, I was doing Rebel what I thought was a solid by warning him about the possible opening he left the IO lawyer he was writing about to sue for defamation. That’s it. No one asked for these ass wipes to chime in on something they know nothing about.

    “panamaa” made a comment about that guy not being licensed in Florida and I simply filled him in on how the law works in a case like the one going on. That’s it. Instead of saying, “thanks for the info.” or something like that, he turned into a fucking asshole for no reason.

    I don’t give a fuck who these clowns think they are, but I am not about take shit from anyone for trying to help a guy out.

    From what I’ve read, it appears the only two people who have room to speak about this are Paladin, Zen, and, of course, Rebel, who can think about what I wrote or throw it away- just as I have said from the beginning.

    At any rate, what I wrote has fuck-all to do with those two assholes- “Panamaa” and “phuquehed.”

  37. panamaa Says:


    Wise words and agreed…. I’m done with him…

    Thank you…

  38. Oldskewl Says:

    Phuquehed and panamaa…

    I’m not sure if he is an IO troll or just a young kid with a big mouth. Sometimes it’s better to remain a lurker and not post… somethings are better left to those that actually know.



  39. panamaa Says:

    And by the way Seventh Son,

    I hope your hitting a few ad’s when you come here and troll. The least you can do is send a little money Rebels way for having to put up your bullshit..

  40. Phuquehed Says:

    Notice that the unwiped shit-hole that calls itself seventh son comes back and doesn’t justify a damned thing it spewed in its post in this thread then goes on to tell others they’re not lawyers.

    seventh’s mouth is nothing more than the same thing as when a mare goes into heat – her cunt starts to move like it’s trying to talk but all it’s doing is spewing cunt smell to attract a big dick.

  41. panamaa Says:

    Seventh Son,

    I’m talking to you asshole… If you don’t like Rebels writing then don’t read it, he certainly does not need your worthless advice as to “revising, removing, or amending” any article he writes to suit your fucking needs.. And another piece of advice, if you are going continue to do it, which I’m sure you will because you IO fucks don’t know when to keep your mouth shut, DON’T DO IT IN CAPS.. Get it? You come here spewing your shit and running your mouth to people that know more and have seen more than you ever will.. How old are you dickweed, 12?

    Your just another IO troll…….. I will give you this though, your expletives are well written and you even spelled them right. That”s quite an accomplishment for fucks like you, most IO trolls that come here can’t spell worth a shit.. So in closing, go find another place to troll and don’t bother addressing me again, I’m done with your stupid ass…

    Now, sit back, take a deep breath, open your mouth and suck Sharks cock nice and slow just how you know like he likes it….
