Hey Texans - Whatever happened with Twin Peaks?

Postby Son of Butch » Sat Sep 19, 2015 7:25 am

Status update anyone?
May 2015
A fist fight turned into a big shoot out at Waco Twin Peaks several killed and a bunch wounded. Over 150 bikers arrested.
Has anyone ever been charged with a crime?
Were all released or are any still in jail awaiting trial?
Any info on who shot who or how many shot by cops and how many shot by bikers?
Will there be a trial this year or have to wait till after Cowboys win the Super Bowl?
Just wondering how Texas justice works.
Or will I have to wait for a "Warren Commission" report?

They haven't released any of the pertinent information yet. The bikers lawyers are up in arms with the Waco judicial system. They have some surveillance video from the parking lot that they won't release. Once again the city of Waco is going to come out looking stupid. Lots of the bikers have been charged with various crimes from assault to inciting a riot. I would imagine they will end up dropping charges on almost all and they should.
I am a backer of the blue but I think that the various law enforcement officers did most of the shooting and it is taking a while to get rid of or editing all the video.

Heard a clip on the news last night, walking through the living room, just caught part of it. They were saying # of dead had non, police bullets in them. I imagine the dead one's were probably justified. I think the police swat probably did a good job. No innocent people hurt. They botched the thing by rounding up basically everyone in Waco riding anything with two wheels and arresting and holding them without even probable cause. If they did screw up . In Waco Texas, we'll never get the true story.

They have gotten pretty tight lipped about it here lately. last I heard they confirmed some of the police bullets hit people but didn't say if those people were among the dead or injured.

A couple of weeks ago I read an article in the Waco paper giving autopsy reports. Several different caliber of bullets caused deaths. One guy was shot twice in the leg and once in the but and died. Must have been a larger caliber.

Who cares? While some bikers groups are good outstanding folks, others are not. Why would you even wish to associate with those groups. Like my Pap says, " play with a turd and you'll get shyt on your hands".

Yep, one would have had to been freeze dried for the last 40 year and recently thawed out not to know bandidos have always been mixed up in all kinds of trouble and violence.

It's pretty much always worked for me, tho I do freely admit having been seen in the company of Caustic Burno more than once. ;-) :P :lol:

I thought about buying it and opening a laser tag biker gang vs biker gangs vs cops. I could have targets that look like cops or bikers jump out and start shooting at you. Just not sure I could get the permits lol.

Grand Jury has so far returned 106 indictments.
Will reconvene to consider indictments on remaining 71 bikers.
Charge appears to be "Engaging in organized criminal activity".

That looks like a pretty wide lasso.

Don't think so. Grand juries do exactly what the DA recommends. If he says indict that do. If he says NO BILL they do. The grand jury meeting is little more than a stamp of approval on what the DA office has already decided.
