Tampa Newz Zombie Returns

Jarrod Holbrook, who is the “I-Team investigator” for Tampa television station WFTS broke more newz Monday night.

“The I-Team found there’s been a recent string of violence among local motorcycle clubs. Law enforcement classifies some of those clubs as criminal gangs and criminal enterprises. Florida law enforcement agencies including right here in Tampa Bay are on high alert.”

Holbrook also portrayed a reporter in a handful of news reports about the biker menace that surrounds Tampa Bay last year after a police public information officer exclusively revealed to him that three local paramedics belonged to either the Pagans or Outlaws Motorcycle Clubs. Monday, Holbrook reported on the murder of Kingsmen Motorcycle Club member David “Gutter” Donovan. Donovan was shot three times in the back on April 29 outside a convenience store in Leesburg, Florida. Donovan died two weeks later.

Long Way From Tampa

Leesburg is 82 miles from Tampa. Police are portraying Donovan’s murder as an event in an ongoing territorial dispute between the Kingsmen and the Outlaws. Both clubs describe themselves as one percenter clubs which means that both of those clubs claim to preeminent in their areas of operation. Florida is crowded with preeminent clubs including the Warbird Warlocks, the Harpy Warlocks, the Kinfolk – comprised mostly of former Harpy Warlocks, the Pagans and the 69ers Motorcycle Clubs, as well as very confrontative police motorcycle clubs including the notorious Enforcers and the Iron Order.

Four Outlaws have been arrested and charged with Donovan’s murder. The most recently arrested was Gregory Alan Umphress. Umphress was arrested last Friday in Naples, Florida which is 166 miles south of Tampa.

Holbrook’s sudden interest in the case is probably attributable to a pair of news realities: July and August are slow months for news and if it bleeds it leads.

Bullies And Thugs

Holbrook focused his report on interviews with Donovan’s grieving widow and an unnamed Kingsmen who witnessed the shooting. He describes the Outlaws as “just bullies. They’re thugs, nothing less.”

Holbrook’s take on the murder is straight forward and in agreement with Florida and federal police. He gives face time to a Pasco Sheriff’s Office Captain named Mike Jenkins who warns “that in the Tampa Bay area…there have been incidents between the Outlaws between the 69ers and between other one percent motorcycle club groups.”

“And we believe that it’s primarily associated with the Outlaws attempting to establish dominance or maintain dominance.”

The news in Holbrook’s story is that “criminal motorcycle gangs are in the Tamp Bay area.”

And the video report includes surveillance video of the confrontation between Kingsmen and Outlaws the night Donovan was shot and other information that suggests he is acting as on air spokesman for police.

    The 69ers! LMFAO.. they were forced to support 81 for Years
    Now all of a sudden they broke away and now want to try to play 1%er
    A man back in 1993 gave the 69ers the 1% honor/respect
    Unfortunately he was the only one with the stones in that club. And they couldn’t carry the torch after he dig a big bid, They didn’t do right by him. Now the club is nothing bunch a wannabes scaring people in malmart and 7eleven. All the niners dirty laundry is going to come out very soon! Stay tuned. They even let a rat by the name of Jose fis “aka Pepe” back in the club after being put out bad for over 20yrs by 81, after he rolled on a brother who tcb back in 1993. Now they don’t support 81 they let him back in the club and side up with the outlaws and mongols. This club is a JOKE!

    I always wondered what would happen if they applied the same criteria used by “law enforcement” regarding MCs was applied to the boys in blue?

    The Aging Rebel is correct: July and August are slow news months, and if it bleeds, it leads. Only the bottomfeeders among TV personalities will front these stories for the police tales of imagined threats. The Outlaws are in the gunsights of the cops and the media…along with any other group that they can get away with the description “gang”.

    Now these news personalities have used the bullshit and galvanized local politicians to fire, or threaten to fire, firemen and EMT that wear colors…these are some of the FEW public services that help the average Joe and family…There is no doubt these guys are actually performing their jobs instead of eating donuts, but maybe that’s the problem. Cops are almost always jealous of the real heroes.

    WHY IS THE ACLU SILENT IN THE CASE OF THE INNOCENT HOSTAGES OF THE CORRUPT WHACKO INJUSTICE INDUSTRY AND THEIR COVER-UP CONSPIRATORS???

    WHY IS THE ACLU SILENT IN THE CASE OF DAVID MARTINEZ???

    The Eye-Team, needs a poke in the eye.

  9. Hangaround Says:

    From reading a related article by the, ehh, “I-Team”.

    “You can see a large group of Outlaws on surveillance video outside. Gun shells were found all over the parking lot. Police found a gun, a knife, and the vest David was killed for. David was shot right under the surveillance camera.”

    If gun shells were truly found all over the parking lot this does not seem to be as straight forward as the media, and the police would have you think.

    “Use your fucking heads and quit bringing heat down on innocents and those of us that could care less about this kind of shit.”
    Since you ‘could care less’, it means you care bud…maybe you ‘couldn’t’ care less?
    How about the next time you run into a 1%er you go ahead and let them know how you feel, you can sit down, have a beer and discuss your hatred for them? Please let us know how that goes.

    Press have to be a mouthpiece for city hall if they want access.

  12. Mike Says:

    I have to agree with you Dutchboy, and could not have said it better. The media has become the equivalent of the state run news agencies that we used to hear about in the Soviet Union and still hear about in N. Korea. As the last remaining bit of our freedoms are taken away and the average American applauds the henchmen who are sent to collect it, the “news media” will continue to warn us of the evils and dangers presented by anyone who dares to go against or disrupt the flow of the herd while continuing to remind us how important it is to support and assist those brave men and women who stand and protect us from those dangers. Lap dog actually seems to be a bit of an understatement, the press are the work hoarses for corrupt police agencies who are shredding the very constitution that they took an oath to defend!

    Just who is Captain Jenkins warning? AARP, the Elks Lodge? And what’s with this “unnamed” kinsman professing Donovan to be his best friend, yet does nothing while watching his “best friend” being murdered. If the foregoing isn’t testament to true brotherhood, I don’t know what is.

    The whole incident is pathetic, no matter the angle it’s viewed from.

    Y’all folks down in Florida need to chill out on this public violence and crap. Not only is it bad for your image, but you are tarnishing the image of all of the bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts in the area. JQ Public will be freaking when they see folks rolling up on Harleys, and some will try to start shit with folks that have nothing to do with your bullshit turf wars or what ever the fuck childish crap you think you need to wiggle your dicks in public about.
    Stop it! If your man enough to confront your rivals, do it in some damn back alley or down in the swamps and out of public view.
    Use your fucking heads and quit bringing heat down on innocents and those of us that could care less about this kind of shit.
    You fuck up, you get what you get because you do what you do.
    Chill!
    Rant over, ride free

    The LEOs have certainly learned how to work the sock puppets in the Lame Stream Media. Wanna know why our once proud Guard Dog press are now the lap dogs of the liberal elite and willing tools (fools) of corrupt LEOs? Look to the three men that own 90% and influence another 8%. Damned shame how low the press has fallen,
