On January 4, 2013 all members of the Tinley Park Five accepted a non-cooperating plea bargain in which they each plead guilty to three felony counts of Armed Violence in exchange for “lenient” sentences and the guarantee of ‘day-for-day’ good behavior. Jason Sutherlin was sentenced to 6 years. Cody Lee Sutherlin and Dylan Sutherlin were sentenced to 5 years. Alex Stuck and John Tucker were sentenced to 3 1/2 years due to their youth and complete lack of criminal history. Each will be placed upon two years of supervised release upon release from prison.
Before the plea was accepted, the State offered the Tinley Park Five one last chance to betray their comrades in exchange for their freedom. What a waste of time! As anarchist and antifascists, the Tinley Park Five are no more capable of selling out the struggle than their broken system is capable of reforming itself! They laughed at the offer and bravely accepted their fate.
Credit was given for the 7 months already served in Cook County. They will receive ’day-for-day’ good time credit which effectively cuts the sentences in half. The state of Illinois also offers several programs and classes which can chip away at sentences. Optimistically, Alex and John could be out before Christmas 2013. Dylan and Cody could be out my Autumn 2014. Jason could be out by Christmas 2014. This is all hypothetical and highly speculative of course.
On Monday January 7th, the Tinley Park Five will be transferred to Stateville for between one and three weeks. There the Illinois Department of Corrections will decide where they will spend the duration of their sentences. Until this decision is reached PLEASE HOLD ALL MAIL. If you wish to donate to the Tinley Park Five at this time we ask that you use WePay rather than money orders at this time, as we’re concerned that they will get lost or delayed as the Tinley Park Five are being transferred between facilities. We’re working on trying to quickly raise as much money as possible to ease this transition.
Make no mistake, it is with great sorrow that we accept just how long we’ll be separated from our dear friends, but they will not be forgotten nor will their struggle cease in their absence. This support crew will continue to advocate for each of them in whatever they decide to do until every last one of them is free. Communiques from several members of the Tinley Park Five to their supporters are expected soon and will be posted on this website.
The Tinley Park Five as well as their supporters, comrades, family, and friends would like to thank Aaron Goldstein, Sara Garber, Brian Barrido, James Fennerty, Stuart Smith, Matthew Dodge, and everyone else who assisted in their legal defense. They would also like to thank the National Lawyer’s Guild for connecting these attorneys with the Tinley Park Five as well as the People’s Law Office for consulting with us in the initial stages of this ordeal.
The Tinley Park Five also wanted to thank Chicago Anarchist Black Cross as well as South Side for their help in bringing people out to their most recent court appearance. Seeing so many supporters meant more than you could know to them. Thanks to everyone who was able to make it. Thanks to everyone on the interwebz for helping to get the word out about it so well.
I was able to speak with Jason this morning and Alex last night and both of them asked that there be a public acknowledgement of all the groups who have humbled us with their support thus far. Thanks to Denver ABC, Salt Lake City ABC, New York City ABC, Rose City Antifa, Southside Chicago Anti-Racist Action, Philly ARA, Lafayette HARM, Circle City ARA, One People’s Project, Bursts-o-Goodness, Political Fail Blog, Sacramento Prisoner Support, M1AA, IWW, VICE, Worker’s World (especially NYC and Detroit affiliates), the Btown crew, as well as anyone who’s attended a letter-writing party, a court date, or came to visit. Thanks to the countless organizations that I apologize in advance for forgetting to mention.
Thanks to all of you Anonymous gangsters that had our backs with #opStormfrontRaid. Dirty South, whoever you are, you’re a life-saver, literally. Thanks to anyone who has stepped up in any way they could whether that be sharing a link or donating a couple dollars.
Thanks to everyone that has helped, but please don’t forget… the Tinley Park Five aren’t going to be in the news headlines as often but they are still going to need just as much support. We ask that you not forget about the Tinley Park Five! Please keep the benefit shows, letter-writing parties, and other acts of solidarity coming as they’re needed now as much as ever.
We’ll leave you with this quote, nearly a century old, which still rings just as true today:
“Your Honor, years ago I recognized my kinship with all living beings, and I made up my mind that I was not one bit better than the meanest on earth. I said then, and I say now, that while there is a lower class, I am in it, and while there is a criminal element I am of it, and while there is a soul in prison, I am not free.” – Eugene Debs 1918
Yours in Solidarity,
Tinley Park Five and Support Crew

An update: Since this release we realized that the information given for Joseph P Jordan was not the correct information, and instead belonged to someone with the same name. We have removed that information and sincerely apologize for the mix up. – the ARA network
Contrary to recent International news Greece’s neo-Nazi party Golden Dawn is NOT setting up shop in Chicago. We tricked tricked them. Their vaunted Chicago expansion was in fact an Anti-Racist Action intelligence operation. We are releasing some of the fruits of that operation now.
This release is in three parts:
1. As a claim of a small victory in our ongoing struggle against fascism, racism, and anti-immigrant hatred.
2. To release documentation on leaders, members, and supporters of Golden Dawn in North America, Greece, and wherever else they maybe hiding.
3. To call for others to flood the Golden Dawn Headquarters and New York branch in an effort not only to destroy Golden Dawn’s ability to grow, but to destroy the credibility of anyone who might want to sincerely help them.
Over the past two and a half months, Anti-Racist Action has been involved in a quiet campaign to stop the nationalist organization from expanding in North America. One of our goals, which we achieved with great success, was to gain intelligence on members of New York’s Golden Dawn chapter, their supporters, and members within the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York who might be sympathetic to their views.
We chose Chicago as a fictitious base for our operation because of its strong antifascist presence and the massive Greek population affected by the diaspora in and around the city. To us, it seemed highly probable that this may be one of the next major battlegrounds between Golden Dawn and anti-fascists in the US, and we wanted to lay claim before they could.
One of the main ways to halt any nazi organization from expanding, is by causing them to doubt any networking request they may receive from abroad. For this, we need your help. Here’s what we did, and what you can do, too, to stop them.
The first step was rather easy. Because we’d been watching the white nationalist website Stormfront for since its inception, we knew that there were several members who were sympathetic to, even envious of, Golden Dawn’s approach to neo-Nazism. Several of these members were of Greek descent, and some resided in Greece. We assumed that someone had to know something. It was merely a matter of picking the slow antelope from the herd.
After a dozen or so posts, we gained trust from Panos8814, a member who had posted a translation of the Golden Dawn manifesto. We offered to help with future translations, and he gave us a contact to Patreus, another member, who was more connected with the organization in Greece. Patreus and Panos8814 divulged important information without ever meeting face to face, to an anonymous person with a four day old account. This is a major fail for Golden Dawn.
Patreus told us that he would keep us updated on any important news regarding Golden Dawn in the United States. Panos8814 and Patreus both encouraged us to contact the organization through the main website, and Panos gave us step-by-step instructions on what to say and who to contact. This exposed their security methods and people in Greece to us as well. Patreus mentioned that the International chapters function autonomously from the main Greek organization, but that it still needed to go through Greece’s Golden Dawn.
We told Golden Dawn that we intended to start a chapter in Chicago and wanted help with the protocol on how do to that correctly. Within days, we had an email from Golden Dawn headquarters.
In our first email from Golden Dawn, we were told to contact Emmanouil Lallas, controller of New York Golden Dawn. We were given a Facebook account, email address, and phone number. Through his Facebook, we found that Lallas was friends with Demetrios Demetrios, the third vice president of the Federation of Hellenic Societies of Greater New York, though not with any of the other members of the board. After a couple web searches, we found that he had spoken at a workshop put on by the Federation in May 2012.
Over time Golden Dawn gave us critical information, which we used to locate it’s membership in the United States. Some of their membership is listed below. Feel free to discuss current events and race relations with them via phone, email, fax and in person. We hope that if we can flood Golden Dawn with fictitious chapter requests, they won’t know who to trust.

Taken from HARM blog:
Jeffrey Stuart Burns (aka Thomas Stuart) from Wood River, IL would have you believe he’s a stand-up guy. He’s a devout Roman Catholic with nearly 2000 posts on forums.Catholic.com. He loves dogs, especially pits and shepherds. He works in private security. He listens to Christian music. He loves the outdoors. His favorite books are Sherlock Holmes, The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People, and just near anything Ayn Rand ever wrote. He even smokes a pipe.
But there’s another side of Jeff. He’s the type of guy that dresses up like a Muslim for Halloween. He also is a forum moderator for world’s largest white supremacist website, Stormfront. He specializes in moderating conversations about white supremacy and religion. When it comes to keeping conversations about whether or not Jesus was Jewish civil and respectful, Jeff is your man. When you combine Jeff’s religious devotion with his perverse views about race you come up with an intense ideology:
“I personally blend my traditionalist Catholicism with some affinities for NS [national socialist] esotericism and, increasingly, some elements of Heathenry and Aryan Vedism. Hardly the first to do that: many before me of a mystical/philosophical bent have explored similarly. The thing is: if mystical [white nationalism] is part of the path one is drawn to–it should be a DISCIPLINED walk, and not just a verbal or mental assent. I’m probably no model of that: the first rule of discipline is to establish a stable routine. Mine gets tossed every which way by nature of my work. Anyhow: respect and honor for Adolf Hitler is indeed something I affirm. [emphasis added]”
Besides being a Hitler loving national socialist, Jeff is also a member of Council of Conservative Citizens and American Third Position (screenshot). Jeff’s true unfulfilled ambition within the white supremacist community was to join Volksfront, a violent skinhead crew (screenshot) but failed to meet their physical requirrements.
Here’s Jeff’s version of national socialism in his own words:
The incompetant [sic] steel-magnate, the inept butcher, the shop-keeper who simply could not keep shop–these would lose the business concerns which they could not operate properly anyhow. But they would yet have social safety-nets cushioning them from their fall and enabling them to return to productive economic activity in some other way. This is anathema to the underlying preconceptions of true socialisms, Marxian or otherwise, because all true socialisms start with the classical liberal idea that all humans are fundamentally equal, separated and differentiated only by unnatural class differences which can with time be eliminated. Start with the recognition that NS [national socialist] ideology does NOT believe in the fundamental eqality [sic] of humankind but rather that people are naturally different and will have organically-differentiated functions in an economy and you begin to grasp what separates NS [national socialism] from pure socialism.
The underlying vision of socialism is the abolition of government, the “whithering-away of the State”, the establishment of anarcho-syndicalist democratic systems where everything is held in common, everyone has an equal vote, and “government” is wholly synonymous with the People. A vision which Marxist-Leninism could never attain to despite systematic efforts to ‘scientifically’ attain such. SOCIALISM IS THE ATTEMPT TO ACHIEVE ABSOLUTE DEMOCRACY IN EVERY RESPECT. Fron [sic] that perspective a market-economy is loathsome and undesirable as the ultimate goal is economic cooperation and not competition. National Socialism is the opposite: it is a repudiation of equalitarianism and the self-conscious effort to attain to a society and an economy governed by elites, specifically by elites born and systematically proven to their role. From that perspective, a free competitve marketplace is desirable as the proving-ground of the economic elites.
This is central to a proper understanding of modern political philosophy: THE EXISTENCE OF A BUREACRACY IN A SOCIALIST STATE–indeed the existence of any sort of “exoskeleton” of government apart from the “people”–REPRESENTS A FAILURE OF SOCIALIST THEORY. On the other hand–THE PRESENCE OF A STRONG STATE CENTERED ON A LEADER AND GOVERNED BY ELITES WHO ARE THE CREAM OF AN ETHNICALLY-PURE ARYAN PEOPLE IS A NATIONAL SOCIALIST IDEAL. From this perspective a “democracy” is an inherent evil and democratic “ideals” are an evil to be purged from the Body Politic. A National Socialist state does not want democracy: it wants a nation of Overmen, a Master Race of people rendered hardened against the weaknesses of equalitarianism and democracy which Jewish ideology have insinuated into our minds to weaken and destroy us. The vision of National Socialism is in many ways the vision of the Dune trilogy [all emphasis added].
To give him credit, he’s one of the few nazis I’ve encountered that has a strong enough grasp on political theory that he is capable of discerning the difference between Marxist-Leninism and anarcho-syndacalism. It’s also somehow refreshing to hear a fascist admit openly that they have no sentimental attachments to notions of equality or democracy.
Truly the “Overman” of the master race he’s considered to be within the white supremacist community, Jeff has been attending leadership retreats sponsored by Stormfront. Though you might not have heard of Bob Whitaker, if you’ve followed news coverage of the Tinley Park Five you’ve probably heard parroting of what white supremacists are now referring to as the “Bob Whitaker Mantra”:
Again referencing Stornfront’s [sic] recent Leadership Seminar: those who coin or appropriate a term first own it. It is very difficult to successfully re-capture or redefine a word the Enemy camp siezed [sic] first. “National Socialism” was an attempt to recapture the word ‘socialist’ for the Right, and it has only succeeded in the minds of most ordinary Americans in confounding Nazis with Communists. By the same token, we cannot re-define ‘racist’ as a badge of honor nor successfully abridge it into ‘racialist’. Commies coined the word and they own it. What we can do is throw the epithet back on them: “racism is code word for anti-White; anti-racism is code for White genocide. Our people are the ones who truly believe in diversity: our enemies want to destroy diversity through racial integration”. THAT is the Bob Whitaker “mantra”, and how we use it.
Jeffrey Burns and his cohorts are fascists in a very real and classical sense of the word. They are obviously racist and they know it. They know that YOU don’t like racism so they figure they’ll just change the terminology. The tactic is neither new nor shocking. The only real surprise is just how willing the corporate media has been to perpetuate their blatant lies in print without the slightest bit of investigation or burden of proof. (///)
