The Constitution In Waco

The First Amendment to the Constitution states: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

The Waco Police Department and other police departments blatantly tried to prevent a peaceful assembly and public officials have slandered the attendees ever since.

The majority of the 176 people arrested after the Waco Massacre were arrested because they were wearing motorcycle club indicia, or insignia, and such insignia is a constitutionally protected form of expression – even in Texas. Current case law can be succinctly summarized as: “Implicit in the right to engage in activities protected by the First Amendment is a corresponding right to associate with others in pursuit of a wide variety of political, social, economic, educational, religious, and cultural ends. This right is crucial in preventing the majority from imposing its views on groups that would rather express other, perhaps unpopular, ideas. Clothing identifying one’s association with an organization is generally considered expressive conduct entitled to First Amendment protection.”

The Fourth And Fifth

The Fourth Amendment states: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.”

One hundred and seventy-sex persons were seized by Waco and other police forces on May 17 and in virtually all of those cases the arresting officer had no idea who that person was or what he had done. In most cases the seized person had done nothing illegal.

The Fifth Amendment states: “No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a Grand Jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the Militia, when in actual service in time of War or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offence to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation.”

All of the Waco arrestees were in fact charged with the capital crime of murder and to date not a single case has been presented to a grand jury. They have all been deprived of their liberty and their property. Numerous citizens who were not arrested have been deprived of their property and McClennan County, Texas has successively argued in the court of public opinion that it would unreasonably inconvenience the county and the state to allow this unknown number of people due process. Waco officials have also brazenly stated that defendants in the case were being held until “they cooperated.” The context of those public statements implies that “cooperate” means making statements the police want the defendants to make.

Six, Eight And Fourteen

The Sixth Amendment demands on behalf of the people that: “In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial, by an impartial jury of the State and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor, and to have the Assistance of Counsel for his defense.”

Numerous defendants have been denied the assistance of effective council. They have mostly been left to rot in jail and the charges against them are vague.

The Eighth Amendment states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

One hundred seventy-six people were arrested and held on bail of $1 million each. In order to meet that bail amount, each of the defendants would be required to pay a bail bondsman a fee of $100,000. So effectively, police were able to impose a punishment of a $100,000 fine by fiat. As of June 3, the average listing price of all homes in Waco was $170,181.

The Fourteenth Amendment, passed after the abolition of slavery, states: “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.”

Officials in Waco have made it clear that the arrestees are being treated differently from other accused criminals because of their associations with fraternal, social and political organizations that are centered around recreational motorcycle riding. Waco has sent the message that bikers pose a greater danger to society than child molesters.

Gutlessness

The Constitutional issues that resulted from public overreaction to the Waco Massacre trouble many Americans who are also outraged by the lethargy of those who advertise themselves as defenders of law and individual liberty. Mutliple lawyers from Dallas and Fort Worth have publically stated that they are not professionally interested in what is happening in Waco because the cases will not pay well and Waco is too far to drive.

The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas did not even react to this astounding crime against civil liberties until June 7 when Terri Burke who is the executive director of the Union issued a cowardly, 182 word press release which was more about “minorities” and roundups of undocumented immigrants than the bikers in Waco.

The ACLU did react a day faster than the National Coalition Of Motorcyclists. NCOM actually had the chutzpah to say it had “reserved its reaction waiting for Waco Authorities to sort through the details about what happened that tragic afternoon.” (Chutzpah is usually defined as killing your mother and father and then demanding mercy from the court because you’re an orphan.) NCOM announced it was “hiring a former Texas Ranger to learn the truth as to who was responsible for the violence at our Texas Region 1 COC&I meeting and expose the many violations of basic human rights of those arrested and who continue to be held.” NCOM seems unfazed by numerous anecdotes by eyewitnesses that strongly suggest that most of the dead and wounded were shot by Texas Rangers armed with machine guns.

The press response to the aftermath of the Waco Massacre has also been timid. Just today, 23 days after the arrests, the New York Times managed to choke out the words, “some of the men and women caught up in the largest mass arrest of bikers in recent decades believe the justice system broke down in Waco and officials delayed and mishandled their cases.”

It is a fatuous and sloppy think piece that substitutes generalizations for specifics and that is careful to give equal time to the local police propagandist. “’We don’t have a reaction to the opinion of people who we believe we have probable cause to arrest,’ said Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton, a spokesman for the Waco Police Department. ‘It’s commonplace for arrestees to complain about being arrested. Our investigation is ongoing and continuing, and the justice system is working in the way that it should.’”

The Times reporter, Manny Fernandez, also allows Swanton to lie that, “the autopsies of the nine dead were not yet complete and the investigation was continuing.”

Yo, Manny! Know how you can tell when Swanton is lying? His lips are moving.

Ernest Hemingway. who early in his writing career worked for newspapers in Kansas City and Toronto, once told George Plimpton, “The most essential gift for a good writer is a built-in, shockproof, shit detector.” It’s a shame that Hemmingway didn’t live to see Waco. The look on the old guy’s face would have been priceless.

    An old friend (about my age) is a long since retired Ranger. A friend of his, whose still in the game, told my friend that he and I are both on a watch list, because of our prior overseas activities.

    My friend and I both found it funny that the Government would be concerned with a couple of Seniors that eat at Denny’s. Then again…

    Great article Rebel. Journalism still exists in amerika.
    The photo you used says a lot.

    History: Many people of the original 13 states refused to ratify the U.S.Costi. UNLESS the Bill Of Rights was incorporated into it. The Revolutionary War veterans, and others had just defeated the strongest and most well-armed army in the world, and were real familiar with despot tyrant KING George III’s tyrannical actions, military and otherwise. They strongly feared the creation of a strong, unlimited government which would not protect their certain inalienable rights.

    Today: Many people haven’t figured out yet, the majority of elected and appointed government office-holders could give a flying fuck about the U.S. Consti., even after George Bush II told them the Consti.is “just a piece of paper”, AND after all which has occurred, and continues to occur in Waco.

    The criminal U.S. Constitutional Law breakers in office are either completely incompetent and have no idea of the inalienable rights they are daily violating, or the criminals know, and don’t give a fuck. Inalienable rights exist with, or WITHOUT, any constitutions. Any government which has quietly declared all people “enemy combatants”, and showed its hand by unloading hundreds of rounds upon any and all, is a government which, by its ACTIONS, not its words, is a government of lawless criminals.

    this:
    According to some records released to the AP following a public information request for 911 calls, Officer Brandon Blasingame reported “shots fired,” to a dispatcher at 12:26 p.m.

    “Two shot behind Twin Peaks,” Blasingame reported two minutes later.

    “They have an AR-15,” he said in the next dispatch. It was unclear who he meant had the rifle, and if it was something he saw or was told.

    plus this:
    Swanton declined to say whether assault weapons beyond the gun in the car, an AK-47, had been seized, reiterating that 318 weapons were collected, including that gun, handguns, brass knuckles, knives and chains.

    and:
    “Members of the Waco Police Department attempted to stop the alteration and were fired upon by Bandidos and/or Cossacks,” the charging documents say. “Waco police officers returned fire, striking multiple gang members.”

    (and/or? blue maybe? maybe not.)

    equals: Oops! friendly fire on a false flag op? who could dream up such madness?

    and how bizarre, arrested for a Capital crime, and denied access to the SAME video evidence shown to the news media, “4th estate”, even LESS Legal right to view & examine.

    AG-

    As a white collar worker and weekend motorcycle enthusiast who has friends in Chicago area clubs I can see perfectly clearly now why one of the tenets of their membership is “no co operation with law enforcement” ! This Waco situation proves this point and makes recent problems in other areas of the country clearer too ! As a peace officer you and your fellow officers have to be shining beacons of the law because when you break the law as happened in this situation in Waco, there is no law ! If you thought the 1% world was secretive before this incident just wait ! To put my opinion in perspective, I was raised in a police household with my father being a 34 year veteran of the CPD ! There is little difference between screening at the airport, arresting a Black or Hispanic youth because his pants are hanging low with a red or blue bandana showing or arresting anyone wearing leather for protection against “road rash” ! A famous man once said that stereotyping is wrong when you apply it to individuals ! Good police work would give you probable suspects ! Arresting the whole group is not only lazy police work but is also ruining innocent taxpayer lives that should be protected by the officers whose salary they are paying !!!

  8. VAGO 1%er Says:

    Has an assistance fund been set up for the Waco folks a person could donate to? Preferable not one that runs through NCOM or COC?

  9. martythe3 Says:

    StevO — the Amerikon sheeple believe that SOA is a good example of what clubs and riding is all about. They truly believe that drugs and hookers come from bikers — even though they watch “Cops” and see who they’re busting. The cops kinda kick them back over to the SOA track.
    Rebel was soooo right when he talked about SOA creating groups like the uo.

    Hell, I’m thinking now that SOA just might have been asked to be written to make it obvious to dumbass milk fed amerikons that bikers are evil and should not remain separate — unless they are in jail.

    Sieg, like reading your posts, agree a lot.

    The COC disgusts me. The COC ain’t nothing but an infomercial for ambulance chasin’ attorney’s, rat punk bitch know-it-all I’m gonna write a book and defend the small clubs cunts like the Dynasty dickweed, do nothing big shot like you know who and out bad cocksuckers who show up because it’s “neutral ground”.

    Hey, pay your dues and you are in. Don’t forget your official Lester package before you leave and oh yeah, Lester pays for run flyers IF you put his advertisement on it.

    Now that the pig goons have taken to raiding the COC sanctuary how many will have the mud to show up for meetings.

  11. Sieg Says:

    Rebel, again, a great article.

    Trouble is, you could write a book about the death of the Constitution. And it would probably sell ten copies.

    To most amerikans, “The Constitution” is something they had to read about if they went to high school, and they here references to something about “rights” on television during some of their shows, but really, they get that stuff all mixed-up with civil-rights, and marital-rights, and gay-rights….how can you tell all that stuff apart?!

    To some other amerikans, “The Constitution” is something that they swore an oath to defend, fifty years ago, by god! And they’ve been doing it every day since then. Going to Legion meetings, telling the boys down to the Grange Hall bout that time they bumped that motorsickle queers back tire, like to made him kill hisself when he high-sided. They have a vague understanding that the Constitution “gives” us rights, but only if we act right, and of course, only to law-abiding citizens…like them.

    Still other amerikans will argue about “The Constitution” with you by the hour. they have that sucker memorized, start to finish, usually have one of those pocket-size copies with them, all marked and underlined. They will be the ones you see, being led away from the scene of an illegal left-turn in handcuffs, reciting passages from “The Constitution” and demanding to be released. They are also commonly encountered on Federal prison-yards, writing endless briefs, writs, and petitions, that sound great, but don’t get them anywhere by maybe the SHU.

    Then we have those amerikans who aren’t, really. They use the Constitution as their ghillie-suit, draping it artfully over their Brioni suits, whilst slipping through the boardroom to jack-up profits on oil and currency manipulations, yet again. They are expert in keeping their shady dealings just this side of the letter of the Constitutional law, and in shafting anyone that crosses them with the other side of it.

    The most dangerous of them all are the American Citizens. They have read, and in many cases, studied, the Constitution, and understand it, the rights it enumerates, and the responsibilities it confers. They also understand that it was abrogated decades ago, and is simply a “paper tiger” used to keep the drones quiet.

    These Americans, rich and poor, White and Black, riders, walkers, and those that don’t leave the house, have ready access to a stash of firearms, know how to use them, and have a supply of ammunition sufficient to last until they can begin retrieving basic-loads from Occupation Troops. They know that ultimately, we will have to fight the armies of the Statists to reclaim our Nation, and that it ain’t gon be pretty. They’ve heard all the super-talk, “can’t fight an Apache”, yadda yadda yadda, but they know that ALL the insurgencies of the last 70 years have been won by small groups of lightly-armed, dedicated freedom-fighters, willing to die to win their freedom.

    Some, already declared Enemies of the State, will be amongst the first to go down. I don’t expect to last long when the real round-ups and shooting starts, but hey-I’m old. Make sure when they come for you, that you make them pay.

    Stevo,
    It’s as ancient as politics, my friend. Keep the mob fed and entertained and they don’t give a damn about what happens to others. The vast majority of Americans don’t care what happens to a bunch of dirty bikers as long as they have HBO and TV dinners. And since most of them get their news from one of the big outlets, as Rebel points out, they are only getting propaganda. Most of those outlets barely mention the Constitution, much less break down the violations like Rebel has.

    This lame fuck uses words like TOUR to describe his average work day as if he’s in some type of war zone or combat theater location, a disgrace and dishonorable to our Nations warriors. Just another example of militarized policing in our homeland by a self-proclaimed enemy.

    The cost for the ankle monitor is 250 per month per unit. Those things take 2 hours to charge and they have to be charged every 8-10 hours. So 4+ hours per day is spent connected to a wall outlet. And they can’t get submerged in water, quick showers are ok but no bath or swimming.

    We have been very fortunate at this point to have received donations from friends and family, and sell a whole hell of a lot of tshirts, that allowed us to produce the 40 grand in expenses we’ve had to cover. We were about to start selling bikes to cover it and at least for now we have been able to avoid it.

    At least someone has been getting it right over here, the media coverage is sickening and what has been anger over lack of due process is at the moment at least, turning into confusion. How is it that this is being allowed in this country?

  15. Stevo Says:

    I don’t understand why Joe Public isn’t furious about this affair. The constitution is being trampled, basic human rights brushed aside and a police state implemented. It’s the same here in the UK where muslims have been committing mass rape of white children while the law stood and watched and in some cases actively covered it up in the name of ‘social cohesion’. Tens of thousands of white children are victims. Where’s the outrage? Are the citizens too cowed, too drugged, too wrapped up in Kim Kardashians fat arse? My friend Sieg has it right, revolution is coming, and if it’s not our ancient cultures are fucked.

    The important questions now are who was the first shooter and who was the person on the porch with the gun. Only video will tell that and they are keeping all video under lock and key. One thing about LO is they protect their own. If they had a few guys on the inside, and I am sure they did, this would explain the overkill. I wouldn’t be surprised if some that were present will disappear and never be charged. Early on some said it was a set-up. It maybe was a set-up gone bad.

    @ Paladin,
    you said it all rite there.
    “After reading Rebel’s article, It should be obvious, to even the most mentally challenged that there are a number of biker organizations that will gladly take your money, but are noticeably absent when it comes time to walk their talk.

    It’s common knowledge that the ACLU is only concerned with protecting the civil liberties of those of color and only then when the issue casts the ACLU in a PC, favorable light. The CoC and especially the NCOM need to borrow the NRA’s play book. At least the NRA isn’t afraid to stand up for its members, and they would never remain silent if their members were being subjected to the travesty that is Waco.”
    I after this event find a bad taste in my mouth for NCOM and ACLU, well we all known that for years.

    “ok, you’ve demonstrated and shown and itemized that the constitution was violated all over the place. so what the fuck good is it????? that’s not a rhetorical question by the way. anyone who can walk me through this i will cooperate.”

    As the author points out there is serious violations to citizens constitutional rights. Unfortunately (or fortunately) our system is a slow grinding process. This will take time to sort out but it will be done in the courts. Weather it is the right or wrong out come, time will tell. Unlike others who seek instant justice by rioting and tearing down cities the civilized way is to work it through the system. Right now the best thing that can be done is to get the best lawyers that can be found and go through the system for justice. Weather anyone likes it or not that is the system we have. They will win if they use the system against the system.

    I think it’s too early to write off the ACLU too. They tend to come in later, after the police have had more time to “step in it.” The good part about the ACLU is that they’ll ride a case all the way to the Supreme Court if they have to. Once they get in, they are in for the long haul. All these Constitutional issues are right in their wheelhouse.

  25. dogbreath Says:

    Demon.xxx, the Vice Grip blog mentioned in the first comment above (posted by Rob, thanx) it says their three members are getting hit for $750 a month, but it is not clear if that is for each or for the three combined.

    “bond conditions include they are not to have any contact whatsoever with anyone in any motorcycle club, including ours, and including each other. gps ankle monitors which cost 750 per month that we have to pay for, assure that they will not leave travis county, no drinking and 10 pm curfew. we were able to get jon and therons bikes out of impound”

    The only good news there is that the bikes are being released to their owners. Of course, I imagine that the City of Waco is making quite a profit off of outrageous impound fees.

  26. Demon.xxx Says:

    Just read another article where a guy on bond said he has to pay 395 a month for a gps anklet in order to bond out? Anyone know about this?

    Anybody getting out right now is still bound and gagged by the conditions of their bonds. They have probably tapped out their resources just to make bail, and certainly cannot afford to have it revoked. Can’t expect much from that source, at least not right away.

    I’m much more concerned with the silence out of the Coroners office and the ballistics testing labs. How about a count and typing of shell casings found, or a count of how many of the bikers weapons were fired? Those facts would not take three+ weeks to obtain, nor would they jeopardize an investigation.

    I find it somewhat irresponsible and callous to use the Death of an American citizen under questionable circumstances as a podium to primarily criticize his lifestyle choice. You made the article primarily about outlaws and 1%ers, not Mohawk’s actual “last ride’ to Twin Peaks.

    There is a travesty of Justice happening in Waco, and regurgitating expert opinion demeans the name BBC News, and it’s readers. 9 men were killed, twice that wounded. The Police arrested anyone wearing Motorcycle Club patches, any potential witnesses. 176 in total. Charged the with “Organized Crime”, held ALL 176 on one million dollar bond with no regard for basic Constitutional Rights under the 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, and 14th Amendment. over 100 are STILL imprisoned almost ONE MONTH LATER being too poor to afford private counsel, STILL with NO CHARGES FILED.

    Ol’LadyRider,

    A quote from Rebel’s article:

    “The American Civil Liberties Union of Texas did not even react to this astounding crime against civil liberties until June 7 when Terri Burke who is the executive director of the Union issued a cowardly, 182 word press release which was more about “minorities” and roundups of undocumented immigrants than the bikers in Waco.”

    I respectfully submit to you that the ACLU should be contacting the incarcerated and their families, not the other way around. The ACLU seems to be quick in championing those that seek to take advantage of the system, but not so much those that are harmed by it.

    Long May You Both Ride,

    The ‘Dadeland Mall Massacre’ of ’79, where three were killed in part of a turf war over the disco coke biz in Miami, and included a cast of mostly immigrant whackos tuned up to the gills on their own product spraying stores with Tec-9’s is still talked about and written about.
    9 killed, 27 wounded, and 170 illegally detained in Waco, and I turn on every news outlet I can find and see a cop with seriously questionable grappling skills flinging a young black chick in a bikini around and finally wrestling her down. No Waco. Nothing. Nada.
    This, coupled with the education provided in Rebel’s articles and the comments following is proof to anyone with functioning brain cells that this…all of this that has been going on is not about ‘bikers’, it is no longer ‘just’ that at all.
    All I hear outside of this page is silence. Like spooky silence – the kind before a very faint then gradually increasing rumbling sound – and not the good kind.
    ‘May you live in interesting times’ – *now* I get why that is in truth a seriously grave curse. Everybody had better wake up. Everybody.

    Rebel, Thank you good work. Once again you have captured the context and complete substance of the Waco massacre and the destruction of the Peoples Constitution. Which conveniently was most likely brought about by spineless punk bitch cowards in tactical gear while grasping an assault rifle or sub-machine gun far from any repercussion. Just plain cowardly, sickening and shows a total lack of honor.

    Thanks again.

    My thoughts on this fall guy Ol Roscoe turd Swanton and his bullshit media dance?

    This cavalier cunts attitude just sets me off, fuck him in his gurgling windpipe. What type of special fuck would publicly say shit like this? “We don’t have a reaction to the opinion of people who we believe we have probable cause to arrest.” They sure had a opioion about people assemblying on a weekend afternoon. What a pompous arrogant oozing shit bag. So once again the Just Us System is revealed and hardly anyone says shit about in the mainstream media about this travesty.

    The expectation is that the CoC, NCOM and all the other “Biker Rights” organizations and the community mouth pieces need to step up and participate by taking action with commitment or each will be unveiled as a bunch of hypocrite frauds.

    I think it may be too early to dismiss the ACLU entirely, though it would have been nice to see them all over this. Remember it was an ACLU attorney who represented Ramon Rivera (Rivera vs Ronnie Carter, et al) and stopped overzealous cops from snatching patches all willy-nilly. Families of individuals still held as political prisoners may want to contact their local ACLU representatives. I don’t think they will stay away from this altogether.

    Google Kaleif Browder. The kid was on Rikers Island for 3 years, never indicted for any crime. He comitted suicide 2 days ago.

    He was 22.

    The Eighth Amendment states: “Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.”

    Apparently the so called “law officials” in Texas have no idea what the constitution of the United States says, and if they do, they choose to ignore it in the case of all those that were held and out on bail, and those still smoldering in jail.

    This is such a fucked up hot mess. I hope everyone arrested sues these bastards for excessive amounts of money. The lives ruined is immeasurable.

    Since Texas claims that “everything is big in Texas”, the wallets of those supporting all these brothers and the few women being held must be overflowing with cash. Hmmmm……..

    Justice to those that were held and still being held.

    Respects,

    After reading Rebel’s article, It should be obvious, to even the most mentally challenged that there are a number of biker organizations that will gladly take your money, but are noticeably absent when it comes time to walk their talk.

    It’s common knowledge that the ACLU is only concerned with protecting the civil liberties of those of color and only then when the issue casts the ACLU in a PC, favorable light. The CoC and especially the NCOM need to borrow the NRA’s play book. At least the NRA isn’t afraid to stand up for its members, and they would never remain silent if their members were being subjected to the travesty that is Waco.

    At this point, it should also be abundantly clear that slick back or patched, you’re on your own. This is especially true if you’ve mistakenly reached out to an attorney that cares more about the mileage driven, than the rights of the accused.

    Long May You Ride (to those that deserve to),

    This is simple math, if Waco PD and government do not pay a serious price for this, its game over for biker world.

    Sure, we will all be riding, when were not in jail, but American Motorcycles and MCs are gonna go the way of the Comanche, will be limited to the rez.

    @kid dynomite

    Let me break it down for ya. The us treasury prints money and ‘lends’ it to the fed reserve bank who sets the interest rate that it will pay it back…. then it loans it to other banks, at a higher interest rate. The federal government sells bonds against the printed money, and uses that currency to pay for entitlements promised to citizens. Right now, 70% of the annual budget is entitlement spending. The taxes that reap the federal income do not come close to the amount required1 to continue sending a retiree his thousand dollar check every month therefore it isnecassary for the us treasury to print more money to keep the ponzi scheme going.

    But inevitably all ponzi schemes come to an end. The Poliburo is aware of this. That is why the Stasi state grows-

    It is ramping up for an economic collapse and a currency inflation ala Germany’s Weimer Republic.

    This horrific massacre in Wacko was something I wouldhave assumed to hadhappen in the peaples republic of nj, not Texas.

    Perhaps Obamugabe is saving that for his Reichstag fire.

    Its coming, oh yeah its coming.

    Just as an effective music DJ ignites requests for personal favorite songs, a good journalist invites the brain cells to energize, think, ponder & respond. Your outstanding coverage of this horrific abuse of Americans in Waco has that effect on me, Rebel.

    At times, this all appears to me to be playing out like a badly programmed Super Mario Brothers video game in which Americans pursuing the ‘American Dream’ & ‘pursuit of happiness’ are subjected to relentless attacks from creeps with weapons popping up out of an endless quagmire of pipes. The salvation comes when all levels of the game is completed, but it begins anew each time the game is started again.

    If the US judicial system is a two sided coin; one side busts citizens & incarcerates them with inbreds with nicknames like ‘Bubba’ & jailers who enjoy beating & raping defenseless inmates awaiting their court dates & the other side of the coin are judges or juries that can set the incarcerated free or lengthen their incarcerations, then that coin can also be compared to a badly programmed video game.

    It’s been said that the difference between the incarcerated from Twin peaks & the Branch Davidians holed up in their compound (from the former Waco massacre) is the fire that ended it all. Fire & Jack Ruby clones seem to pop up in situations handled by the forces that arrest, detain & strip citizens of their liberties & possessions a lot in law enforcement history of the USA.

    I hope & pray with each story Rebel publicizes that the McLennan county fire inspector keeps an especially watchful eye on the jails the Waco Twin peaks arrestees are detained at in each day that drags on as they await their due process in Texas.

    ok, you’ve demonstrated and shown and itemized that the constitution was violated all over the place. so what the fuck good is it????? that’s not a rhetorical question by the way. anyone who can walk me through this i will cooperate.

    Thank you Rebel.

  46. ak rack Says:

    So many Texans have given their lives in various wars to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. It’s a goddamn shame that Texas law enforcement and judges are pissing all over their graves with impunity.

    I’m not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but I recommend taking a look at yesterday’s Vise Grip MC blog post:

    http://www.visegripaustin.com/2015/06/update.html

    It also describes what they and others in the Austin area and beyond are doing to help their three accused brothers.

    Maybe as a fund raiser they could sell toilet paper imprinted with the Constitution. I can only assume it’d be a GIGANTIC seller in Texas.
