The McLennan County Re-Education Camp

Neither the United States Department of Justice, the American Civil Liberties Union of Texas, the Governor of Texas, the President of the United States nor any of the score of smurfs and fools currently running for President has so far dared to come to the defense of the scores of men and at least two women who remain unjustly imprisoned under cruel and unusual circumstances in the McLennan County Jail.

The Southern Nevada Confederation of Clubs has stated that the jail is desperately overcrowded, that some prisoners are not being fed and that others cannot get needed medical attention. A week ago a Bandido named Jeff Battey had to post a $1 million bond before he could go to a Dallas hospital to have bullet fragments removed from his arm.

Yesterday on its Facebook page, the Southern Nevada COC said it had received the following messages from “family members” of men who were rounded up in the indiscriminate mass arrests that followed the shooting deaths of nine men and the hospitalization of 17 more following a barrage of gunfire outside the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco on May 17.

Please Help

“Third world conditions – please help!”

“My husband still has a bullet in his chest and can’t use his right hand. He has a heart condition, has a stint and a-fib, and they are trying to change his medication. He is afraid he might bleed out in his cell.” “Heart meds not being disbursed. Has bullet in chest and cannot feel hand. Believes he has nerve damage but they will not treat him”

“My brother is type 1 diabetic and is not receiving insulin. His blood sugar is 550.” “Meds not being distributed – takes insulin”

“Blood pressure meds not being given”

“No blankets or pillows. Sleeping on cold floors”

“Husband just had back surgery and was on prescription meds for pain. Simply decided to go to the meeting to get out of the house. He was told he was being given a sleep med and instead they gave him ADHD /bi-polar medication. He has also not eaten anything for almost 10 days now since surgery”

Kenneth Carlisle

There are numerous accounts of men being illegally arrested and detained. For example, a plumber named Kenneth Carlisle was arrested because he was wearing a Harley-Davidson shirt. According to the San Antonio Express-News, Carlisle spends “most of his time raising money for multiple causes for ill children, cancer victims and survivors, wounded warriors, and cooks in barbecue competitions in which the proceeds are donated.”

Carlisle’s wife Lindsay told KABB-TV “He wasn’t wearing any vests, no colors, no bike, was in a vehicle and was in the wrong place, wrong time.” She said he had driven her car to the Confederation of Clubs Meeting and was arrested “eight minutes” after he arrived.

“This is has been beyond difficult. The worst nightmare of my entire life,” Lindsay Carlisle said. “What happened to innocent until proven guilty? In this case that’s not what’s happening.”

No Answers

So far, authorities in Waco have been oblique about how 26 men came to be shot; what part police played in the massacre, or why people who self-evidently had nothing to do with the shooting were arrested and charged with murder.

McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has intimated that the bikers are being punished  for not telling police what police want to hear. In an interview with television station KXXV, Reyna said “I’ve heard enough about my person was a victim and most of the people were victims. Well, guess what? If they’re victims they shouldn’t have any problem coming to law enforcement and cooperating to be sure justice is done and the individuals solely responsible are brought to justice. And, through the first round of interviews we aren’t getting that.”

The hard news in this case portrays the city of Waco and McLennan County as rogue governments that have gone mad.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports “McLennan County is spending $7,958 a day to house those jailed in the May 17 Twin Peaks shootout. So far, the county has spent more than $80,000 to arrest and incarcerate people who went to a brunch in Waco and then tried to avoid getting shot.

Only two men, Battey and Christopher Stainton have made bail so far. Neither man has a criminal record. Both are required to wear an electronic monitoring device and observe a curfew while they await their day in court.

As of this morning, 175 of the 177 people arrested in the vicinity of the May 17 shooting remain locked up. Thirty-four men have filed for a reduction in their bonds. About a score of those have bond reduction hearings set for either June 5, 12 or 19. Most of the prisoners haven’t filed for bond hearings because they do not yet have lawyers.

Seventy-five of the alleged murders have requested a public defender. There are only 29 lawyers in McLennan County qualified for the job. The County has 26 prosecutors.

    From the article: McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna has intimated that the bikers are being punished for not telling police what police want to hear.

    Yeah, Reyna, there are a lot of us that hope the lying pigs ARE brought to justice. But that’s not what you meant is it? So just STFU.

  2. ZaiaReilly Says:

    Is there anyone taking up collections for these bikers’ bail and for their families?

  3. Centurion Says:

    12 killed in Chicago over the weekend. 60 wounded. John Ciccone can’t blame BIKER GANGS, so nobody cares.

    12 more will die this week. 12 or more next week, and the next week, and the next week. Yet, no bikers are involved, so nobody cares.

  4. puterindabasketchief Says:

    Iron Rocket. Go figure.

  5. recycledbiker Says:

    The latest from “Bowtie”

  6. Centurion Says:

    12 killed 60 shot in Chicago last weekend. No bikers involved, so nobody says anything.

  7. Photoman Says:

    Bikers are the new Jews
    Waco PD is the new Gestapo
    Texas is the new Bucenwald
    Texas Rangers are the SS
    Harley Davidson won’t help
    Time to switch to Victory

    I came across your great blog whilst looking for info about what really happened at the Twin Peaks two weeks ago. You are doing a great job. One of the things that has mystified me is how the media, who would never take a police report at face value if they were talking about, oh, an unarmed black kid being gunned down by the police, treat the musings of Sgt. Patrick “Pinocchio” Swanton as gospel truth. The official story stunk from the get-go,and I’ve said so:

    Keep up the great work.

    Don’t think little Rocket can keep his thumb out of his mouth long enough to play Halo 5.

  10. jj solari Says:

    dear rocket: HALO 5 will be coming out soon. are you excited? have to told mom you want one????

  11. Says:

    @xyz, when is Rick Perry gonna ride into Waco? When the cops give him a free impounded motorcycle? No hero I know is gonna ride with him, how about sticking up for a Purple Heart Vietnam Vet murdered by cops? Rick Perry, all these guys are a fucking joke.

  12. XYZ Says:

    American Military Heroes to Join Rick Perry for “Ride with Rick” in Iowa
    “Perry will ride a Harley, in where else, Iowa, an early voting state.”

  13. FF Says:

    Maybe I’m going out on a limb here but perhaps Smokey and Rocket are really Neil and Bob.

    At least thats what they do.

  14. XYZ Says:

    “Another question, where in the hell is Harley Davidson on this?”

  15. britbiker Says:

    By the way its fucking 2am here just got back off the late shift chilling with a beer

  16. britbiker Says:

    Rocket what a well thought out intelligent and insightful post you must feel really proud! Why not let’s wait until the facts come out before we jump to any conclusion’s? You sir are out of order

  17. Jim Fry Says:

    Have we reached Peak Incarceration yet? Seems we must be close.

    Perhaps we’ll have a new meme going forward, especially as facts continue to leak out: “They were Twin Peaked” … it may be used in a variety of ways, once you unleash your imagination with this one …

  18. Philo Says:


    Does it even matter to a brain dead, dick dribble like yourself, that no one was shooting in the restaurant? Or that it looks like the cops did most, if not all. of the shooting? Prolly not right? I really want to write a long, drawn out insult reply to your post, but to be perfectly honest, I’m just glad I’m not you.


  19. Aussie Says:

    Rocket: you,sir,are an idiot. Did you even read the article?

  20. John Deaux Says:

    Rocket ?
    Sounds more like mule’s ass to me.
    Go away boy, men talking here.

  21. Sieg Says:

    Rocket? ROCKET J. SQUIRREL? Is that, I say, is that you, Rocket J.???


  22. Vince m Says:

    Thanks Rebel, I just saw that. Now maybe America will be able to see the other side.

  23. Rocket Says:

    Could be some regular human beings are being incarcerated, but mostly it must be biker scumbags getting the same treatment the terrorists held at Guantanomo got. That’s what these murderous, drug dealing pieces of shit are — terrorists. Shootout in a fuckin’ restaurant? Tough luck.

  24. Vince M Says:

    Thanks Rebel…I’ve been waiting for that, hopefully many more to come.

    “First they came for the bikers …” Exactly erkman69, exactly!

    Some may wonder why I, a retired LEO, (& longtime motorcycle rider) might give a sh*t about the Constitutional issues at play here. Well, there ya go.

    For those unfamiliar with erkman69’s reference, I’ll post it here (there are a few variants, but the sentiment is the same)

    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Socialist.

    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
    Because I was not a Jew.

    Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

  26. Rebel Says:

    Dear Vince M,

    The first, federal civil rights suit was filed this morning. This mess is about to get a lot bigger.


  27. Vince M Says:

    No Politicians demanding answers? No mainstream media questioning the police on 9 dead, 18 injured or defending the arrest of 170 or so Bikers who are being held as criminal gang members under federal law? Where is Al Sharpton and the Civil Rights leaders of our country now? I guess only the civil rights of blacks and Black Lives matter. I surely hope that those under arrest can afford to turn around and sue for financial ruin, loss of jobs, mental anguish, and defamation of character after they get proven innocent…and that the families of those killed by the police sue for loss of life.

    This whole thing sickens me. It was the clubs that kept H.D. from becomming a memory when they were owned by amf. Where are they? There were bikers that supported the bundy ranch when blm thugs threatend them with m16’s. Where are they? It pisses me off. Bikers always show up when people need them, dammit,where are they now. I am doing all i can to get support for the jailed bikers. Seems no one really cares, but i do. My family does, we will continue to tell all we know about this tyranny. I wish people would listen. First they came for the bikers…
