Texas DPS Version

A Texas Department of Public Safety Criminal Investigations Division Investigative Report  titled “Bandidos/Cossacks” written by DPS agent Christopher Frost the day after the Twin Peaks Massacre seems to provide the basis for what will be the eventual prosecution of some number of people Waco prosectutors have connected to the incident.

The report is not necessarily an accurate description of what occurred. Rather it serves the same function as Reports of Investigation written by federal police forces. It is full of assertions that magically become “evidence” by being written down. Like most of these documents it is at least as interesting for what it does not say as for what it does say.

Frost is assigned to the Waco office of the Texas DPS. The report is about 2,100 words long. It is unusually long for a police report and it is carefully worded which, together with standard techniques of internal literary analysis, betrays that the document has gone though multiple drafts. Much of it appears to have been written before May 17. It was “approved by DPS “Lieutenant Steven Schwartz” Schwartz testified for the prosecution at multiple examining trials held for Waco defendants. Both Frost and Schwartz were at the Twin Peaks during the shooting.

The Report

According to Frost and Schwartz, “in late March 2015,” Texas DPS agents “learned of an incident that occurred on March 22, 2015 on Interstate 35 in the City of Lorena.” Lorena is about five miles south of Waco. “At about 3:15 P.M. on March 22, 2015 the Lorena Police Department was dispatched to Interstate 35 southbound lanes near the 323 milepost to a fight in progress.”

Witnesses told police “that a blue Ford pickup, a green Nissan Titan and a white Dodge pickup forced a male subject on a motorcycle against the inside barrier wall and to a stop. Eight to ten male subjects exited the vehicles and began assaulting the male with a chain, a baton, and possibly a pipe. The male motorcycle rider was later identified as (Rolando Campos) a member of the Bandido (sic) Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMG).”

Police told the DPS that members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club carried out the assault and that “the Bandido OMG and Cossacks MC were at odds due to the Cossacks wearing the bottom ‘Texas’ rocker on the back lower portion of their jackets.” Frost then editorializes that “the Cossacks MC is known to be involved in criminal activity, including but not limited to, narcotics trafficking, weapons trafficking, assault, extortion and murder.”

The Lorena Police

The Lorena Police Department has been mentioned frequently in official and unofficial evidence about the Twin Peaks Massacre.

According to Frost, the DPS first learned from the Lorena police “that the normal Coalition of Clubs (COC) meeting that usually is held in Austin was suddenly changed to the Waco Twin Peaks Restaurant located at 4671 South Jack Kultgen Expressway in Waco for May 17, 2015.” A Lorena policeman “explained that the COC is run by the Bandido (sic) OMG.” Lorena police told the DPS “that the COC is where other motorcycle clubs are required to join and pay dues to the Bandido (sic) OMG to be able to operate in Texas.” The Lorena police, “felt like the change of the meeting location was purposely done to show support for the Bandido (sic) OMG in the Waco area to the Cossacks MC.”

“The following week” Texas DPS agents began to collaborate with the Waco PD about the forthcoming Confederation of Clubs and Independents meeting six weeks in the future. Waco’s gang intelligence detective had heard the same thing – that the COCI was coming to Waco.

“On April 16, 2015,” the DPS in Waco was informed by Waco police “that the Bandidos OMG was enroute (sic) to Legends Cycles located at 3201 Interstate 35 Frontage Road in Waco to confront the owner which is also the President of the local chapter of Cossacks MC.” DPS agents, including Frost, “responded to the area of Legends Cycles along with marked and unmarked Waco Police Department units. Special Agents and Officers conducted surveillance of the area; however, no threats materialized.”

“On April 16, 2015 at approximately 8:00 P.M., DPS Texas Highway Patrol Trooper Jeff Wachendorf observed forty to fifty members of the Cossack MC turning into the parking lot of Twin Peaks. Trooper Wachendorf notified the Waco Police Department and the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department who responded and began monitoring the area. No known disturbances occurred.”

Frost Begins Researching

There was, however, a disturbance at the Twin Peaks on April 23 that “resulted in the arrest of a Cossack MC member for unlawfully possessing a handgun on a licensed premise. A bandana containing a padlock was also seized from the same individual during this arrest.”

Frost and other DPS agents “began researching the Coalition of Clubs meeting on May 17, 2015. Special Agent Frost located an internet domain name http://unitedclubsof waco.org/. In researching this website’s calendar of events, Special Agent Frost observed on May 17, 2015 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM a Region 1 Confederation of Clubs and Independents meeting at Twin Peaks in Waco. This information corroborated that of (the) Lorena PD.”

“Special Agent Frost also observed that the website’s colors are that of red/yellow or gold which are consistent with that of the Bandido (sic) OMG. Special Agent Frost observed under the ‘Member Clubs’ link a laundry list of known motorcycle clubs with Bandido (sic) OMG being at the top. Special Agent Frost did not observe the Cossacks MC as being a member.”

The SOI

“On May 1, 2015, a bulletin was released to law enforcement detailing the escalating tension between the Bandidos OMG and the Cossacks MC. This bulletin detailed the incident in the City of Lorena as well as others throughout the State. This information corroborated information being received by (Lorena gang investigator) Rogers and Special Agents. Detective Rogers spoke with a source of information who stated the Cossacks were planning to attend the Confederation of Clubs and Independents meeting at Twin Peaks in Waco. The Cossacks planned to address the issues between the two clubs.”

The reference to a “source of information” in the Waco area with knowledge of what the Cossacks planned to do 15 days in the future is interesting. The Aging Rebel has been told the name of the SOI but has been unable to confirm it.

“On May 8, 2015, Special Agent Frost, Detective Rogers and DPS CID Lieutenant Steven Schwartz met to discuss the Confederation of Clubs meeting. During this meeting, Detective Rogers (of the Lorena police) advised that due to the rising tension between the two groups and the fact that information being received that both groups will be in attendance the Waco Police Department was planning on having a police presence in the area during the meeting on May 17, 2015 at Twin Peaks to deter criminal behavior.”

Study And Observe

“Lieutenant Schwartz and Special Agent Frost agreed that DPS CID Special Agents should also be in the area to conduct surveillance, gather intelligence and be able to readily respond in the event that the Waco Police Department needs assistance. It was also agreed that DPS CID Special Agents would request the assistance of the Texas Highway Patrol in performing routine patrol duties on the major roadways in the area such as Interstate 35.”

At a meeting “on May 14, 2015” Lorena, Texas gang expert Rogers, who was apparently handling an SOI inside the Cossacks, “advised that the Waco Police Department would have marked patrol units consisting of two officers each in the parking lot and around the Twin Peaks area. These officers would be Waco Police Department Special Weapons and Tactics officers. Detective Rogers further advised that the Waco Police Department Street Crimes Unit would be in the area working routine patrol duties in case assistance is needed.”

“Rogers explained that information was being obtained that someone rented Twin Peaks for this meeting. Detective Rogers explained that the Waco Police Department had attempted to contact Twin Peaks management on several occasions; however, has had little to no cooperation. Special Agent Frost agreed to attempt to contact someone in the Twin Peaks Corporate office in an attempt to gather that information.”

Final Planning

It was at that May 14 meeting that the DPS agents “decided that the use of the department’s drop camera would be beneficial to supplement Special Agents (sic) ability of physical surveillance.”

After the meeting concluded, “Special Agent Frost attempted to make contact with Twin Peaks CEO Randy Dewitt. CEO Dewitt did not answer and Special Agent Frost left a message explaining Special Agent Frost had some questions about Twin Peaks Waco upcoming event.” An hour later, “Frost received a phone call from Twin Peaks General Counsel. Special Agent Frost explained the Coalition of Clubs meeting that was expected to take place on 05-17-15 at Twin Peaks and Law Enforcement had concerns about some members of certain motorcycle gangs who may be attending. Special Agent Frosts’ question was if the entire establishment was to be rented out for this meeting. General Counsel explained that the Twin Peaks in Waco was owned by a franchise and that they would make contact with that franchise attorney to make contact with Special Agent Frost.” An hour after that, Waco Twin Peaks owner “Jay Patel called Special Agent Chris Frost and identified himself as the owner of Twin Peaks in Waco. Special Agent Frost explained to Patel that it was DPS CID’S understanding that there was to be a meeting of the Coalition of Clubs on 05-17-15 and asked Patel if the entire Twin Peaks establishment was rented out for this meeting. Patel explained to Special Agent Frost that the Coalition of Clubs had only rented out the patio area of Twin Peaks. Special Agent Frost explained to Patel that there was rising tension between two motorcycle gangs that could possibly both be in attendance at this meeting. Patel explained to Special Agent Frost that Patel was told to expect approximately four hundred (400) bikes and due to this Twin Peaks had hired three security guards. Special Agent Frost advised Patel to call Special Agent Frost if any threats are received or heard of by Twin Peaks.”

“Once information was confirmed that only the patio was rented and the main portion of the restaurant would be open to the public, a decision was made to have Special Agents working in undercover capacity to be inside the restaurant. These Special Agents would be inside the restaurant to conduct surveillance and gather intelligence from inside the restaurant. A CID Operational Plan was completed and will be maintained at the Waco DPS CID Office.”

May 17

“On the morning of 05-17-15 at approximately 7:00 A.M., Special Agent Frost deployed the DPS CID covert camera. The camera was placed in the public right-of-way and was positioned to capture the patio area of Twin Peaks.”

“On 05-17-15 at about 10:30 AM, Special Agent Frost drove by Twin Peaks parking lot and observed what appeared to be employee’s only at the restaurant. Special Agent Frost proceeded to the DPS CID briefing location which was the Flying J Truck Stop parking lot located at 2409 South New Road in Waco. Once at the Flying J, Special Agent Frost met with Special Agents Cory Ledbetter, Justin Overcast, Mark Gerik, Chris Dale and Lieutenant Schwartz. While in the parking lot, Special Agents observed a large number of unknown motorcycle club or OMG members walking around and through the parking lot conducting what appeared to be counter surveillance. Special Agents moved the briefing to another location.”

“During the briefing, surveillance observed a large group of Cossack members at Twin Peaks in and around the patio area. A decision was made during the briefing by Lieutenant Schwartz not to send undercover Special Agents into the restaurant. A decision was made for Special Agents to pair up to conduct surveillance of the area and gather intelligence. Special Agent Frost and Dale were in one vehicle with Lieutenant Schwartz, Special Agent Ledbetter and Overcast were paired and Special Agent Gerik and Detective Rogers were paired.”

“Special Agents entered the parking lot of the Central Texas Market Place and began monitoring Twin Peaks at around 11:40 A.M. on 05-17-15. At approximately 12:24 P.M. Special Agent Gerik reported gunshots from the parking lot of Twin Peaks. Special Agents responded and assisted the Waco Police Department in securing individuals, administering first aid and securing the perimeter around Twin Peaks.”

    In regards to the cocksacks wearing their cuts while attacking the Bandido on the highway, probably not. But according to news stories on the subject, various items such as batons, pistol magazines, etc were left on scene. As stupid as they are, they made the job easy, and LE probably used that as leverage to get these SOA wannabes to initiate a disturbance that could be used to shut down the COC and lock up some unsuspecting Bandidos.

    Anyone know that “Mike Smith” guy, that’s selling that Waco Texas Biker Massacre book?? If you want to read his B.S. book, don’t buy it from him, here is a FREE copy:https://app.box.com/s/60zlnag2fzhibazr1sjbx0zxxgvqhco3 I just don’t think it’s right for someone to make money off of others Misery!

  3. Sheera Says:

    There are so many things that are wrong with Waco, it’s dumbfounding. Instead of calling the Twin Peaks CEO, why didn’t they just call the COC? A simple phone call could have avoided so much misery and mayhem. The Waco Cossack President has stated that Waco PD approached them about going there to “talk” to the Bandidos. I call bullshit. The cops set everybody up. The definition of entrapment is coercing someone to do something they wouldn’t do under normal circumstances and the Cossacks don’t go to COC meetings. The Waco PD is responsible for this crap. The sad part is, the Judges, the Police, DPS the DA and the local politicians are an alliance against everyone else. And what the hell happened to the ATF? They were there but they have just disappeared into the woodwork. Makes me want to spit.

    A Sunday Slaughter. I know it changed me. I only speak for myself as a club supporter, but for the massacred and wounded on 5/17/15, for all bikers in all communities. for all Americans, grandkids, hell, for me… it’s my passion to honor the massacred and wounded. I do so by writing letters to powerful community leaders who’ll pretend to give a damn, talking about the lengths of corruption intelligently and equipped with only facts about what’s happening in my state. Findung a language people will listen to without bias because of our bikes and tattoos. Texas, the Republic. It’s no big surprise to anyone the good ol boys round here are corrupt and always have been, bad in every department, but this ladies and gentlemen is the whole freaking county. Powerful Texans with big ass money. I live an hour away from Waco where a Sunday crowd took open fire. Two days after, a friend who lives in Waco made me aware that she witnessed the removal of the franchise’s Twin Peaks signage being removed after her shift ended at midnight. In Don Carlos’s footage I’ve watched a orange shirt man emerge from directly under camera from the landscaped bushes and shrubs. He appeared to be plains closed (perhaps) officer with a backpack on, placed a weapon next to an unresponsive person against the wheel of a white car. Clearly! Can you imagine the impact the franchise’s signage footage would have on this crime? In addition it was indicated the crime scene was completely compromised, a circus of lookie-loo’s & drive-by’s. With the recent removal of office & disbarment of Judge Ken Anderson, I am more aware of this as an opportunity for our advantage. Hopefully it will follow with all of the removed. This has the potion risk to clean house. What a great honor if a bunch of bikers take down the system by cramming the Constitution down their throats?

  6. Mike Smith Says:

    This “Special Report” read with a skeptical eye just mirrors what everyone has been saying from the first day. The LEO’s got the meeting moved and got the Cossacks there. They wanted a riot so that they could close the COC&I and hurt the Bandidos MC by arresting everyone there under the seldom used Texas Gang Statute.

    I know that everyone is getting tired of hearing it, but this shit matches that short story on Amazon. The more we know the truer it gets.

    Wasn’t Swanton quoted saying that they asked Twin Peaks owner Patel to close the establishment due to the meeting and thar Patel refused. Well, if this report is true then once again Swanton is caught with his pants down LYING and a business owner loses out because of lies and stupidity that took innocent Peoples lives and some lost all they had. Law Enforcement news there would be normal patrons in there that day and they could have stopped it. They planned on this month’s in advance and have the indecency to try and blame it on citizens, bikers, and the owner. It’s discusting and disturbing! I’m a law abiding citizen, my nephew is a police officer but this discust me. I’m certain that some of these guys pitted their own against one another and now it’s unraveling and hopefully if there’s any good in any of the ones that have figured out they were played they’ll come forward and crucify the others!

    The DPS report reads:

The male motorcycle rider was later identified as (Rolando Campos) a member of the Bandido (sic) Outlaw Motorcycle Gang (OMG).”

    What’s wrong with this picture? If this event actually happened, are the Cossacks dumb enough to do dirt with their “cuts” on arguably the busiest highway in Texas, how else could “eye witnesses” have known they were from the Cossacks MC? Surely Campos wouldn’t have said anything to the cops.

  14. WheresMyBoots Says:

    Wait , Rebel, did I read this right? Someone ‘rented’ Twin Peaks for the meeting, or a part thereof? As I understand, charters/chapters are selling t-shirts to keep the lights on in CH’s – who has the cash to ‘rent Twin Peaks’? For 18 years? Men who have jobs and are raising families and coming up with beau coups cash for required club runs – who the fuck has the cash to rent Twin Peaks’?
    And P.S. – nobody heard of the ‘Cossacks’ prior to this. I’d make ‘Black Widow’ jokes but that’s too easy.
    My limited experience, but true: want to be around outlaw bikers? You have to go out of your way to do so. Period. And: as mama said: if you have a chip on your shoulder, you can bet someone will knock it off.
    I’d love to just be a de facto, accepted outlaw biker. I’d also love to be a contender even in minor league MMA. I’d also like to fuck one of the big time tattoo models. All of these ‘I wanna’ take some serious stand up and shut up.

    Doesn’t this part pretty much prove that LE DID NOT ask/tell Twin Peaks to cancel the Meeting????? “Patel explained to Special Agent Frost that the Coalition of Clubs had only rented out the patio area of Twin Peaks.

Patel explained to Special Agent Frost that Patel was told to expect approximately four hundred (400) bikes and due to this Twin Peaks had hired three security guards.

  17. C Anthony Says:

    this was interesting and amusing to read… like a script of some other movie… I can imagine guys riding in from out of town for this legislative meeting, rolling into the gas station filling up, taking a break… and these cops think they are doing counter surveillance, when they are just being themselves and going about their own business! The end of the article shows it all though, in one sentence that seems to have a piece of it missing… “Special Agents responded and assisted the Waco Police Department”… (and this is where there seems to be a lot of activity missing in the time lapse)…. “in securing individuals, administering first aid and securing the perimeter around Twin Peaks.”

  18. LB Says:

    What happened to officers taking an oath to protect and serve.
    How is this even possible when you knowingly put innocent
    Peoples lives in danger and some even died when it clearly could
    Have been prevented. This clearly didn’t have to happen and
    Innocent people died and lost their lively hood and much
    more from plain stupidity.

    This discussion is not about Laughlin or Jax so why would you bring them up as they are completely unrelated? If you want to open your piehole on the subject why don’t you comment on the actions of the feds and Waco pigs regarding the incident at hand which is the criminal behavior of your brethren in Waco on May 17th 2015.

  27. FF Says:

    Two things really jump out at me:

    ###Lorena Detective Rogers spoke with a source of information who stated the cocksacks were planning to attend the meeting at Twin Peaks###

    and

    ###At a meeting with DPS CID Special Agents Rogers advised (on May 14)that Wacko PD would have marked patrol units in the parking lot around Twin Peaks; these officers would be Wacko PD Special Weapons and Tacticts officers.###

    Sounds to me like Rogers and his cocksack agent provacateur made sure those idiots would show up UNINVITED then Rogers made sure SWAT snipers would be on scene, knowing full well the cocksacks belligerent presence would agitate enough of a disturbance to give the SWAT snipers an excuse to open fire.

    Rogers you piece of shit, I hope you find yourself in the yard at Huntsville State real soon. As for your snitch, I hope you are reading this right now and I hope you experience massive acute and chronic irritable bowel syndrome which gets worse and worse and the days go by until your name inevitably goes public.

    How you planning on going out? Sling a web belt over a ceiling vent?

  28. Hogeye56 Says:

    So, the cops knew there was probably going to some serious shit happen. They also knew that civilians were going to be dining in the main room. Yet they chose to remain largely hidden instead of having a visible presence. What happened to “serve and protect”? Sounds to me like they wanted a shootout. Suckers of cock.

    BREAKING NEWS! WACO TWIN PEAKS BIKERS REMAIN CALM. “Endeavor to persevere!” The Twin Peaks bikers, their family and friends have shown remarkable Faith in the American Justice System. 177 (“Criminal/violent”) Bikers were arrested, jailed and forced to post bonds of up to 1,000,000. 18 “Criminal” bikers wounded and 9 “Criminal” bikers shot dead. When you add these bikers family and friends effected by this tragedy that equals thousands of pissed off “Criminals.” To this date no acts of reprisals have been reported against Police, Banditos or Cossacks.(Including their affiliates, wannabes, mailmen and grocers) Either they found Religion and are rehabilitated(Praise the Lord)or, quite possibly… Never criminals at all but true Patriotic Americans who have always had faith in the American Justice System?

  30. DD 3% Says:

    This report contradicts what Swanson told the media about the local Twin Peaks franchise. This report indicates that the franchisee responded to and cooperated with inquiries (within an hour of the conversation with Twin Peaks General Counsel), was never asked to refuse the meeting, and was only asked to pass on credible threats of violence. He even passed on the Intel that there would be upwards of 600 bikes and that he had hired 3 additional security guards. Contrary to the lies spread by Swanson, this report paints a different picture of the franchisee.

  31. oldskewl Says:

    Maybe 10% of that report is true.. and when I say true I mean the facts support the sentence. Yes, when you go to http://unitedclubsof waco.org/ the page does have Bandit colors and yes, the Bandits are the MC at the top of the list.
    The rest is BS.

    I’ll give them this much, if they are trying to concoct a story that makes every agency and man involved look like Buford T Justice, then this is brilliant.
    From the looks of it, they are building a case around redneck stupidity and while it may work in Texas, once the appeals process starts and the higher courts get a hold of it, heads are gonna roll.

    A Lorena policeman “explained that the COC is run by the Bandido (sic) OMG.” Lorena police told the DPS “that the COC is where other motorcycle clubs are required to join and pay dues to the Bandido (sic) OMG to be able to operate in Texas.” What a load of shit this is. Do cops really think a COC meeting is like some mafia protection racket like Vito Corleones wedding where the lesser bosses pay tribute to don corleone? With such low IQ’s how to cops remember to breathe?

  38. JL Says:

    @Paladin

    I also read an SOI could be a CI/Undercover as well. Granted a CI is a ‘Snitch’, but I would note the difference being a CI is likely a ‘Paid’ snitch (paid either with money or leniency in a pending criminal court case) versus a snitch operating without official incentive(s). I’m not sure if an undercover LEO could be an SOI but would be interested to know. Rebel’s article didn’t name the SOI so my input here could be moot. Respectfully though your point was made.

    All – anyone who has traveled north/southbound IH-35 through central Texas (Waco area) has passed through Lorena, TX. Lorena is more a small town than a city. IMHO, Lorena’s citizens are good and decent people. Lorena has a single grocery store, a small Post Office, and a “downtown” consisting of a few antique stores and a handful of Mom & Pop restaurants. If not for Lorena’s proximity to IH-35 it’s probable most would never hear anything at all about Lorena. While traveling 70mph in either direction on IH-35 if one should fart in the city’s center by the time a smile has returned to their face they’ve already scooted past city limits. Lorena is tiny. Real tiny. IH-35 running through Lorena on the other hand is heavily travelled and often congested. Lorena PD pulls a lot of revenue with the city’s single cruiser writing tickets. The cruiser is an SUV -probably utilized to cut down on operational costs such as gas (sarcasm). The Lorena Police Department has five officers. (http://www.ci.lorena.tx.us/index.aspx?NID=116)

    And according to Rebel’s article one of those officers is a gang investigator.

    That’s good, real good. The citizens of Lorena can sleep well knowing hooligans and ruffians from White Fence, OTNC, Black Guerrilla Family, Nazi Low Riders, Aryan Circle, Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, Crips Nation, the Triads, ALKN, Pussy Riot, Bloods Nation, Yakuza, MS-13, Barrio Logan Heights, Sin City Royals, Brown Pride, Encanto, 18th St, the Avenues, Barrio Azteca, Tango Blast, Texas Syndicate, LCN, every Latin American cartel, all DWB’s and the AB are each kept on a short leash in Lorena… Lorena’s gang investigator is on point.

    He makes time to speak to an SOI in the Cossacks MC.

    (Please read sarcasm above in previous two paragraphs)

    Lorena, TX Crime Statistics & Gangs: (http://www.insideprison.com/city_crime_statistics.asp?cityCaseR=Lorena&stateNorm=TX&zipC=76655&stateID=)

    More seriously, for those who have experience in the military (infantry, direct action units specifically) one could recognize military style tactics utilized by the law enforcement agencies listed in the investigative report, e.g. recon, intel gathering, designation of reserves (according to the report cited in the article). Rebel spells it out solid… the prior planning and preparation by state and local agencies speaks volumes. It would be great to read the DPS CID OpPlan (Can a FOIA Request secure a copy? IDK – Probably not right now). Sad though – it seems there were tons of planning and zero actual intervention or prevention by those who are paid to make it home safely, err, serve and protect themselves, oh shit, officer safety! Fuck. Never mind.

    BTW – I’m fairly confident the Texas DPS CID’s Investigative Report was a source document used as justification in Lorena PD’s budget submission during the end of FY-15. Maybe next year Lorena PD can afford two Gang Investigators (sarcasm intended).

    Thanks to all who keep Waco II alive and in public discourse. Thanks to those who are working to bring light on the events of May 17, 2015 and see justice served for the individuals and families involved. The issues at play directly involve the biker community but, they potentially impact and affect every American. It would be great to believe that any/all exculpatory evidence discovered would be presented and brought forward by anyone who swore an oath to do so. However, the fact we are now discussing Waco II means instead we’ve all got a mighty high mountain ahead left to climb.

    It is telling that throughout this “report” the Bandidos are referred to as an OMG while the Cossacks are referred to as an MC, even though Frost editorializes that “the Cossacks MC is known to be involved in criminal activity, including but not limited to, narcotics trafficking, weapons trafficking, assault, extortion and murder.”, which are the same alleged activities that classify the Bandidos as an OMG.

    Based on the “report”, one can conclude that in Texas, having an SoI (snitch) within one’s ranks is what differentiates an OMG from an MC.

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

    Hey Rebel, don’t know if this is the right place to post this, but it would be kind if you could give a shout-out to Dudley McMillan, who was a big cog in the wheel that kept the local 1%er club rolling around here, the Saddle Tramps.

    Ok, now we have the “Official Version”. Of course, we can tell this is the real, approved, and honest to Aunt Phoebe “Official Version”…’cause it’s BULLSHIT. What the cops pulled was an ambush.

    My condolences and sympathy goes out to the murdered bikers’ families and loved ones.

  42. Dasein Says:

    Wow. After all that bloviated cop-speak for whatever was to follow, real “action” of the day, from “hearing gunshots”, to “securing the perimeter,” is laid out in the last two sentences. The painstaking diligence of the windy introduction suggests the truth of the actual “report”, which amounts to those last few words, but it seems well known by now that the “administering first aid” part, at least, is a stretch, if not an out right lie. The whole “investigation” is lies in plain sight. This is just more lipstick on pigs.

    @Rebel
    ” At approximately 12:24 P.M. Special Agent Gerik reported gunshots from the parking lot of Twin Peaks. Special Agents responded and assisted the Waco Police Department in SHOOTING INNOCENT individuals, NOT administering first aid , ARRESTING INNOCENT CIVILIANS, CONFISCATING CELL PHONES AND OTHER PRIVATE PROPERTY and securing the perimeter around Twin Peaks.”

    I fixed the typos for him…..

    So give the footage.

  45. R&R Says:

    Bullshit! All of it. Especially the part about rendering first aid. They let men bleed out and not only would they not help them, they wouldn’t let anyone else help.

    I’m in COCI in Texas. What these assholes call paying dues is really no more than a membership fee. And a reasonable fee at that. And if the so called OMG’s are really criminals – fucking prove it. They can’t so they’re trying to poison public opinion against clubs. I’m so sick of this mess. I know the truth will come out eventually, but I’m tired of waiting.

    Thanks Rebel for solid reporting.

    so,, it’s “on paper” that DPS ‘knew’ the B&G were going to crash the party, start some shit,, but apparently forgot to mention that little fact to the CoC or TP.

    Thanks Rebel, keep kickin’ them rocks over
