The Gangland Evidence

September 16, 2009

All Posts, News

Undercover hero Darrin Kozlowski is back out here on the West Coast. He had been reassigned to Washington, DC for most of the last year. Kozlowski was “one of several ATF Special Agents who infiltrated the Mongols outlaw motorcycle gang in an undercover capacity between 2005 and 2008.”

The idea behind his reassignment was that his life was in danger from the Mongols and the idea is plausible. Kozlowski is a 21-year veteran of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF.) He started his career in the Atlanta field office of the ATF with author and fellow hero William Queen. And during the course of that career he has betrayed the Warlocks and the AOA in Florida, the Sons of Silence in Colorado, and the Vagos and the Mongols in California.

Kozlowski, word has it, even stabbed a couple of backs at Death Row Records back in the day. This page’s one and only source in Compton, call him Rayrey, recently described Kozlowski as “a bigger jackass than Kanye West.”

Everybody knows Kozlowski. Everybody except Doc Cavazos has known about him for years. So, it is not surprising that at this point, after a long career as a domestic spy, he has come to live like a refugee and may even be looking for a new job.

Author! Author!

Which may take him into the realm of authorship. The 15-page declaration he entered into evidence Monday reads like a proposal for every other book about bikers by every other former cop you have ever read. But then, America has become so literate that even Miley Cyrus can publish a memoir.

For that matter, former, out bad, Mongols supreme allied commander Doc Cavazos published his own memoir. And, then he sought what is commonly called “face time” on television. It did not go well but it could have been worse. That HBO documentary film Doc was negotiating in the summer of 2007 could have actually been produced.

Certainly Kozlowski deserves his own book deal. In his proposal, or declaration, Kozlowski briefly establishes his authority and then concedes, “to the extent that facts stated herein are not within my personal knowledge, I believe them to be true.” In other words, the “facts” he states are facts because he believes they are “facts.” Which makes Kozlowski sound like a “biker authority” already.

Descent Into The Violent Blah Blah Blah

He then relates “The Violent History of the Mongols.” History we learn includes the years 1977, 1982 and 2002. The other years seem to be missing. And since Kozlowski did not join the ATF until 1988, he seems to have acquired his expertise by reading somebody else’s book.

All the usual shocking revelations are here. “A ‘hang around’ is a male (usually a friend of a current Mongols member) who shows interest in being around members of the Mongols.” “To a full patched member, other full patched members are considered
‘brothers,’ and rank above all else, including citizens, law enforcement, and family members.” “Colored wings (are) earned when performing oral sex on females
under various conditions.” Ooh la la!

Not to spoil the book for you when it comes out, but there is much more of this drivel. Who knows. Maybe there is even fifteen dollars and ninety-five cents worth.

ATF Watches Gangland Too

The most riveting passage in all of this, however, is chapter or, if you prefer, paragraph 43.

“On May 15, 2008,” Kozlowski confides, “a nationally televised episode of the series Gangland aired on The History Channel. During the episode, several Mongols were interviewed, including some of the defendants in Cavazos. At one point, Ruben Cavazos (a.k.a. Doc), the National President of the Mongols said the following in reference to Mongols members and the Mongols patch: ‘We dictate what you’re allowed to wear on your vest and what you’re not. We dictate the type of shoes you can wear, the way you stand, the way you act in public, even your face. We used to have what was called a “war” face. And that was your face in public. The meaner or harder you looked, the less chance there was of somebody making a violent move on you.'”

Isn’t that interesting? What do you think the odds are the jury in the coming trial will get to see all of that television program?

What do you think the odds are that Kozlowski’s eventual book will even include a chapter 44? One in which he deconstructs the parallels between the “Mayans” on the authoritative television program Sons of Anarchy and the Mongols in that as yet largely untelevized realm which some of us still stubbornly insist should be called reality?

    i know im late to jump in on this one but i could’nt resist!!! those running their mouths on gangland for one broke in house protical on speaking to the media, being photographed by the media & more than anything trying to wear shoes that did’nt fit! anyone on that program in front of the cameras should and will eventually be facing concequences. as for anyone who sucked up all that hot air that came out of those clowns mouths, if you did’nt understand then you won’t ever…

  6. DirtyBruin Says:

    I’ve watched all the Gangland episodes that deal with MC’s out of sheer morbid curiousity. They’re all sensationalistic crap. For example – they manage to find some context in which they can describe each club as “most violent”. How interesting… the HA’s are most violent, the Mongols are most violent, the Sons of Silence are most violent, the AOA is most violent, the … well, you get the idea.

    *eyeroll*

    Hey, just had a thought – throw a “Double Bullshit” party; a marathon of Gangland episodes alternating with ones from Penn & Teller: BULLSHIT! Of course, the mental whiplash of going back and forth between the two might really screw some people up….

  7. YYZ Skinhead Says:

    This is odd: All of the Gangland reruns that will air this week and next week (with the exception of Killing Snitches) are “outlaw biker” episodes.

    Biker Wars 2 is the other episode that features the Mongols, as well as the Hells Angels.

    Sons of Anarchy is about as realistic of a depiction of a MC as the Sopranos was of the Mafia. It’s a soap opera! It’s Days of our Lives on 2 wheels!

  9. sled tramp Says:

    Uhhhhh….isn’t there a picture of this guy in that Mongol book by Mcqueen/Queen? Seems to me if this agent was dirty in all those clubs mentioned, SOMEONE would have noticed…? No offense to those clubs or their members but it strikes me that an agent that has to testify that many times is gonna get noticed when he moves around.That’s just strange….

    Dear XYZ Skinhead,

    I am telling you man, one of these days Charlie Hunnum is going to be called to testify as an expert witness.

    your pal,

    Straight from the SOA blog: http://soa.blogs.fxnetworks.com/2009/09/16/next-on-203-%e2%80%9cfix%e2%80%9d/#

    Agreed…great show. Love Breaking Bad also…Wow to both and I’m glad I have a DVR.

    One thing I haven’t figured…how would raping Gemma tier SAMCRO apart? She and nazi boys think it would. I would think it would unite them against a common enemy. What do you think?

    Watching Gangland on History Channel helps with knowing how many gangs think and react. There is often more blood shed within the same race than outside. We will be seeing that in the future, I bet.

    wonder if Oprah will push this book on her show…

    He is obviously a sociopath.

  14. YYZ Skinhead Says:

    How did this guy manage to “infiltrate” all these wildly divergent clubs (and Death Row while he was at it)? Did he change his looks or what?

    Apparently the definition of “biker authority” has expanded to include “any traitorous pig or other biker hater pitching a book, movie or television series”.

    I can’t believe this scum bag got around as much as he did. Seriously, I never met the guy but I remember exactly what he looks like just from his pictures in the books.
    Don’t these clubs share any of this snitch info. Up here in Michigan, even clubs that didn’t get along very well would pass on info like that to each other.

  16. FTF Says:

    People like Kozlownski are exactly what is wrong with this world.

  17. JAMES Says:

    REBEL, what CAVAZOS failed to mention was the fact that the “SHOES” he was refering to were,”NO TENNIES WHILE WEARING YOUR PATCH OR RIDING” and no “BANGOR SHORTS with the PATCH ON” and then this “WARFACE CRAP” was just somemore of his “OUT OF THE BLUE BULLSHIT” and yes”KOZLOWSKI” sure has gotten around.
