In the last several days a commenter named John Furin has published multiple inflammatory and insulting comments on this site. Saturday, for example, this commenter wrote about Peter B. “Hormone” Schlette, Jr.’s obituary, “He was a Poser Now hes worm dirt.” On a story about The Last American Outlaw, a documentary by a British film maker about former Hells Angel George Christie, Furin wrote “Rebel Your a Lier.
Here’s what’s going on.
John Furin is the screen handle for Nightmare one percenter of the Chester faction of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club. This faction of this club was involved in a highly publicized gunfight with members of a large and well known club named the Warlocks Motorcycle Club that has most of its chapters in Florida. The shooting occurred near Orlando last September and Schlette was one of its victims. The Florida Warlocks wear a Phoenix or Warbird patch. Both the Chester and Philly factions of the Warlocks wear a Harpy totem on their backs.
Nightmare who calls to harass me from a telephone number in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania and tells me he is a Florida resident, describes himself as the Boss of the Southeastern region of the “True and Original Warlocks” or “Red and White Warlocks” Motorcycle Club. The Southeastern Region of the Red and White Warlocks encompasses the Eastern Seaboard from the South Carolina-North Carolina state line to Key West.
Nightmare one percenter, who has an amazing ability to speak loudly for long stretches of time without inhaling, strongly disapproves of a story published here on June 3rd titled “The Philly Outlaws Case.” He specifically objects to the second sentence in that story which reads: “The Philadelphia Outlaws, who used to be the Philadelphia Warlocks, became the target of the FBI’s Organized Crime/Labor Racketeering Squad.”
The Aging Rebel has reconsidered the sentence and believes it most accurately and succinctly describes the very complicated, involved and sometimes strange events which led to the foundation of an AOA chapter in Philadelphia and its relationship to the Warlocks Motorcycle Club founded in Southwest Philadelphia in 1967. (Nightmare insists the club was founded in 1965.) The June 3rd story was not about the history of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club but about an FBI entrapment of members of the Outlaws in Philadelphia. Consequently, the June 3rd story has not been modified.
As for the shooting in Florida last September: This page understands that there are multiple versions of that tragic event and that the case is not yet adjudicated. The Aging Rebel will continue to try to cover that ongoing case fairly and without screwing up anybody’s defense.
Nightmare one percenter is not a source and has not been a source in covering that case. The Aging Rebel does not identify sources for information published here unless a source explicitly or implicitly agrees to be identified. Nightmare one percenter simply disagrees with this page’s coverage of that case.
At this time this page has nothing more to report on the Florida shooting case or the case involving members of the Philadelphia chapter of the Outlaws.
