Denver Iron Order Fight

At least one person is dead and there are “multiple other victims” as a result of a brawl that started at about 12:45 p.m. Mountain Time today at the Colorado Motorcycle Exposition held at the National Western Complex in complex in Denver.

Police spokesperson Raquel Lopez described the fight as an “incident” and “a disturbance.” According to Lopez, “there were shots fired and at least one stabbing.” Using  the sort of cautious cop speak that is typical of press conferences after biker confrontations, Lopez said, “No one is in custody,” and that there is “one deceased party and multiple other victims.” She described the current status of the case as an “ongoing active investigation.” She refused to name the clubs involved.

Iron Order And Mongols

The Aging Rebel has confirmed that it was a fight between members of the Iron Order and Mongols Motorcycle Clubs.

The Iron Order, which recruits numerous police officers and active duty servicemen, touts itself as the “law abiding motorcycle club.” The club includes multiple field grade military officers and senior non commissioned officers and, according to club officers, ATF agents. The ATF is the lead federal police force in most motorcycle club prosecutions. The Iron Order’s first president was a United States Secret Service Agent named Carl “Iceman” Janisch.

The Iron Order’s current International Vice-President is 45-year-old Lieutenant Colonel Michael “Cgar” Crouse. Crouse is currently assigned to the U.S. Army Reserve Command at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. In tape recorded and written statements, Crouse comes across as a stupid bully. In one conversation to which The Aging Rebel gained access, Crouse stated “I know our club has the advantage. One percenters won’t call the cops. So what the fuck, destroy any fucker that confronts you. It’s a free ticket….”

Typically, Iron Order members go out of their way to provoke violent confrontations with members of other motorcycle clubs. The Iron Order is widely despised by other motorcycle outlaws not only for it’s members’ aggressive rudeness – which seems inspired by Sons of Anarchy – but because it is widely considered to be a “cop club.” Even many policemen detest “cop clubs.”

Drive By

Two years ago the club had about 4,000 members, making it the largest outlaw motorcycle club in the United States. About four months ago, the club split into two.  Former Iron Order president Ray “Izod” Lubesky founded the Iron Legacy Motorcycle Club. Lubesky is a former fast food executive with Cinnabon, Ponderosa Steakhouses and Papa John’s Pizza. Lubesky owns a painting company franchise in Palm Harbor, Florida and is the current president of the Iron Legacy.

Members of those two clubs maintain cordial relations. For example, members of both the Iron Order and the Iron Legacy participated in a drive by shooting intended to wound members of the Los Solitarios Motorcycle Club in Leesville, Louisiana near Fort Polk last December 23. The shooter was a member of the Iron Order and an active duty military policeman at Fort Polk.

Typically, authorities refuse to charge members of the Iron Order in cases in which Iron Order members instigate confrontations with members of other clubs in order to “destroy” them. For example, Florida State Attorney Angela Corey refused to charge Iron Order prospect Kristopher Stone after he shot and killed Black Pistons patch holder Zachariah “Nas T” Tipton in Jacksonville Beach, Florida on June 26, 2014. Corey ruled the killing was justifiable homicide because Tipton had punched Stone in the nose.

Both the Mongols and the Iron Order wear patches that are black and white insignia.

Nine people were hospitalized. Two Mongols and two Iron Order members are in critical condition.

    Some “‘people’ (for lack of a better word)” don’t know when to STFU.

    You have a bike, you ride…but while you’ve been a “guest” of both types of clubs, I can tell you have not participated or interacted with them before or after the ride. It is extremely insulting to any club for them to invite you on a ride, and then split afterwards without getting to know them. I fail to understand how you can have a one-sided opinion as demonstrated by your remarks.

    Wiseone: “I don’t happen to know what they are all about, I don’t know any of them so therefore I have no first hand knowledge.”

    So you are just letting your ignorant mouth flap anyways and wondering why everyone thinks your an idiot?

    True to form UO member. talk talk talk… if you knew a fucking thing about what it means to earn a patch instead of ordering on from the internet you would know to keep your fucking mouth shut. More is less………

    You cocksuckers and your supporters call each other “brother”, you have no fucking idea what that word means. You fucking earn the right to call a man your brother, it’s not something you just get to say! a patch is earned, you fucking mail order cowards are on hit list bigger than the Constitution.
