The Vagos Are The Show

George Rowe, who along with Ashley Charles “Tijuana Charles” Wyatt, informed on the Vagos Motorcycle Club during an ATF investigation that would later be named Operation 22 Green, is about to become very famous.

Hyperion Media Group and Identity Films are in preproduction for a film based on Rowe’s quasi-novel Gods of Mischief: My Undercover Vendetta to Take Down the Vagos Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

According to Variety, Michael Mailis and Anthony Mastromauro will produce the film. Mikko Alanne will write the screenplay. Alanne previously wrote the scripts for The 33, about Chilean Miners trapped underground, and Oliver Stone’s Vietnam movie Pinkville.

Gods of Mischief was published around the same time as Wyatt’s Vagos, Mongols and Outlaws: My Infiltration of America’s Deadliest Biker Gangs. Wyatt is now widely known as Charles Falco.

During Operation 22 Green Falco was supervised by Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Agent Darrin Kozlowski and Rowe was supervised by ATF Agent John Carr.

High Octane

Simon and Schuster, which published Gods of Mischief, describes the book as a “high octane, no holds barred, true story of a bad guy turned good who busted open one of the most violent motorcycle gangs in history. George Rowe’s gritty and high-octane story offers not only a clear window into the violent world of the motorcycle outlaw but a gripping tale of self-sacrifice and human redemption that would be the stuff of great fiction – if it weren’t all true.”

Former ATF Agent Jay Dobyns praised the book, saying “Most people wouldn’t dare lock eyes with a member of the Vagos. A few would look away, the rest would just run. America prefers to voyeur into the biker culture, hiding behind the safety of the television screen. Gods of Mischief cuts through the fear and Hollywood glamorization, puts you on a bike, and rides you right into the Green Nation.”

Former ATF Agent William Queen has written, “Oh my God, what a story. This is a dangerous and emotional page-turner that’s going to leave you thinking to yourself, ‘My life’s not so bad after all.’ Reading Gods of Mischief is like sitting right next to George Rowe listening to him tell it.”

Becoming A Snitch

The lie that Rowe, his publishers, handlers and enablers promulgate is that he agreed “to join the Vagos – not as part of a plea deal but to exact revenge for the Vagos’ coldblooded, senseless killing of Rowe’s friend in a Hemet bar. Becoming a ‘snitch’ is, for Rowe, a way of giving something back to the neighborhoods he’d poisoned with the methamphetamines he sold.”

Sources speaking on condition of anonymity indicate Rowe may now believe that himself. Rowe’s pride in his work brings to mind one of two witticisms Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was known to have uttered in his entire life. “Pride and memory were having an argument,” Nietzsche said. “Memory said, ‘It was like this.’ And pride replied, “No! It couldn’t have been!’”

The truth about Rowe, at least the truth as seen from outside his skull, may be more interesting. Rowe was never a major drug dealer. He was a petty criminal and minor drug dealer. He saw becoming a professional informer as a career opportunity. A very informed source said, “In Hemet, George had a nickel and dime business with a couple of toothless alcoholic employees and a junkie woman, lingering along in a dying town. Going undercover and subsequently into WitSec has led him into a whole new life filled with as many opportunities as he can reach out for.”

Rowe may have begun his journey into the lucrative snitch business as early as 1982. He was eventually turned out by a man named Kevin Duffy who died in 2009.

“It may have been his idea to infiltrate the Hemet club,” the source said. “But, Kevin Duffy would have known how to actually make him do it. And, Kevin was certainly well-connected to maximize the opportunity into something bigger.  Kevin got George in touch with the Feds, and I am sure Kevin knew it was a one way street. The relationship between them was long standing and much more complex than what George states in the book. The road they took together was likely one they had gotten on way back in the early 80’s. George has said to me more than once that he agreed to Kevin’s request to go undercover for a short, one-shot deal.”

Clocking Dollars

Since disappearing after Operation 22 Green, Rowe has continued to work as a professional informant for the ATF. The Aging Rebel believes that in the last eight years Rowe has been involved in ATF investigations in Georgia, Tennessee, Arizona, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and North Carolina.

“He’s a natural on the street,” the source said.  “He’s got a wide network on both sides of the thin blue line, and he knows how to use it.”

“They reward him well for doing what comes to him, naturally. He has become educated. His penmanship is legible and his writing literate. His vocabulary is professional, and he speaks well. When you know what living in Cali was like for him, it is amazing to see how far up into the middleclass lifestyle he has come. He has been able to diversify his revenue stream with jobs, side jobs, a business, book deals and movie rights. That native intelligence which he used to great effect as a small time con man, he now uses to his advantage as he works within the Federal system. “

“He explained to me how cops make big money in Real Estate. Protected people can’t live just anywhere, and they have to keep moving along, Rents received  for those wired up, teched-out safe houses is roughly triple the going rate, and with high un-occupancy to write off. Government employees have insider privileges like first crack at buying repos or seized property. Paid time off, dental insurance, employee discounts…concepts like this were completely foreign to him in his previous life.”

And now Rowe is about to become America’s next great hero.

Welcome to the meritocracy.

    I hope you read this Georg. I remember you and i think of you often. Thank you for everything.

    He must feel great about what he’s done.because being a snitch in a two horse town rewards so much. He skated on the outskirts of clubs picking on some old niece guys. And of course the fish is always bigger in the story. So people will eat up his shit breakfast .hollywood never writes the truth. The truth isn’t exciting. It’s depressing ,sad ,and real life .brothers go to jail ,kids cry miss their fathers wife’s are put through hell.lives get tossed . For what cause the Feds and snitches like to crime create . Guess their careers are at steak every year they have to prove their worth,why not attack some poor guy that’s trying to be part of something greater than themselves. Fucking fags is what I think.

    @stroker – re: ” What’s needed is more work at the COC level…..and some real honest to God sit-downs between the bigger clubs. Even then, I have my doubts. Bikers are by nature unwilling to be told what to do….even by their own clubs! We’re too damn fractured, too damn proud, and in many cases too damn stupid to know what’s going on. Throw greed into the mix, and we’re sometimes just a rolling fucking train wreck. (yeah, “Mr. Sunshine” …that’s me!)

    I dunno my friends…….sometimes it just seems hopeless.

    But I Hope I’m wrong.”

    Actually – No. You are right. You posted this 2/27/15 – and about two weeks later – instead of a quiet little CoC function – Waco happened.

    Imagine. What if all those riders had gotten the updated helmet laws and other legislative information. Instead of being shot like fish in a barrel.

    Shame on every member of every agency, standing on the ground, or on a rooftop, in a fusion center, or an office or a remote location who surveilled or shot or arrested those Texans. Shame shame shame. and you take money from those poor people you shot – to adorn your whores and feed your children.

    My viewpoint on this = and I could be dead wrong – is… it’s been an interesting year. Things are not always what they appear to be.

    “If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream.” Edward Abbey

    Peace Love & Understanding to all – on this St. Valentines Day.

    Happy Birthday, Baby-
    I hope you are having an awesome day today and wish I could give you some Righteous Personal Attention.
    I hope your Boss, and your Boss’s Boss and the Big Boss all rot slowly in Hell.
    I wish….
    Well – you know what I wish.

    I’ll ride you in my dreams,
    Forever yours,
    Your Brat

    Just watched the whole miniseries…

    I dated a Vago briefly a couple years ago and still have his “Property of” tattoo, even though we both have moved in (I think? Last time I heard from him was Valentines Day of 2014).

    He and the brothers of his chapter were and will forever be MY HEROES, for taking down an abusive Russian/Armenian employer I had at the time. What I can say about these men is that if they become violent, the recipient likely 100% deserves it.

    Gangland Undercover was well written & shot, but really puts an unnecessarily bad light on the Green Nation. I found myself getting really into the story, but there was this voice in my head going, “Oh this dude’s a piece of shit. Snitch. Where is this guy and why is he alive to do pre-show commentary?”

    Just letting all the boys in Green know my thoughts, prayers, good vibes, etc. are with you. Keep on protecting righteousness, I know most of you do.

    I hadn’t watch the AHC video until now and it is nothing more than a LE propaganda film and pure freaking propaganda.
