Tragedy In Biker World
I have been waiting to comment on this until some more facts come out. It look similar to a case in Florida involving this same biker gang. I use this term gang intentionally instead of club for a good reason. One of the clubs involved in the shooting will probably take the wrath and it wil not be the Iron Order.
One of the tenets of the biker community of legitimate clubs is you do not involve the general public in your problems if you can avoid it. Another is you take care of your own problems without going to the police. That is unless one of the clubs IS the police.
There are many police clubs that are above board and openly admit they are an LEMC (Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club). They usually sport a 99% diamond patch and you need to be a cop to join. The Iron Order is not that way. They allow law enforcement officers to join, and then try to play like they are an ordinary club with the caveat if they get rowdy or stir up trouble, they can hide behind their badge knowing their law enforcement background will give them the edge during any investigation.
If you are approached by this club to join or for any reason, realize who you are dealing with. It may be best to say "Good day, officer." It looks like they may get away with murder again.
