Another Waco Coverup Leak

The Associated Press has obtained and reported previously suppressed evidence in the Twin Peaks Massacre including the footage from the Texas Department of Public Safety’s clandestine pole camera, the dash cam footage from Waco Police Officer Michael Bucher’s car and ballistics reports prepared by the Southwestern Institute of Forensic Sciences.

The ballistics reports indicate that four of the nine men killed in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, were shot with Remington .223 caliber bullets. The bullets are typically fired from M-16 type rifles (including the M-4s carried by Waco police) and Ruger Mini-14 rifles. A handful of pistols including the Heizer Defense PAR1 Pocket AR Pistol and the Kel-Tec PLR16, fire the .223 round. At a glance, the ballistics indicate that four of the dead men and at least one of the wounded were shot by police.

According to the AP, the dash cam video records the initial confrontation between members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club “in a tight group gathered in front of the Twin Peaks patio. A biker can be seen striking others with a chain. Twenty seconds later, the biker is shot in the leg and the hip…. One biker shoots while running backward away from the parking lot while another fires from the patio.”

Police Shooters

Police reports state that “once it started our officers immediately (italics added by The Aging Rebel) engaged with the bikers to attempt to shut down the brawl and were fired upon where they responded with return fire.” Officer Bucher and Officer Heath Jackson reported that they “were engaged by gun fire as they exited their marked police unit” and “both returned fire and struck multiple suspects with their patrol rifles.” The two men fired at least 11 shots. The Waco police chief has stated that his officers fired 12 shots that day.

Earlier this year, a grand jury declined to indict Bucher (photo above) and two other officers after they killed a suspected robber named Jimmy Ray Robinson Jr. Bucher, a 10-year veteran of the force, is also a vice-president of the Waco Police Association.

A third officer, identified only as “Officer O’Neal,” has admitted to engaging “a suspect with a gun” and firing one shot from his M-4.

Last May 18, CNN, citing an unnamed, law enforcement source, reported that police had killed four people at the Twin Peaks “in a hail of police bullets,” Waco police spokesman W. Patrick Swanton immediately tried to bully CNN talking head Ashleigh Banfield into a retraction.

“That’s not fact,” Swanton declared. He lectured Banfield that he was the only person on the planet who could authoritatively speak about the massacre. Then he told Banfield that the number of police victims was unknowable because the autopsies had not been “completed.”

Eight Homicides Solved

The AP also reports that the pole camera recorded the execution of Vietnam veteran Jesus Delgado Rodriguez. According to the wire service, Rodriguez tackled a biker who was brandishing a gun. The two wrestled on the ground until a third biker approached and stomped on Rodriguez’ head. The biker with whom Rodriguez had been wrestling then shot Rodriguez in the head and walked away. The names of both of Rodriguez’ assailants are known to police.

The evidence reported today seems to account for five of the nine homicides.

Additionally, a voluntary statement made by a Cossack on May 17 incriminates a single Bandido for three additional homicides. Police reports suggest that the pole camera substantiates the Cossack’s allegations. In July, a source told The Aging Rebel that that cooperating Cossack had participated in the fight and was seen talking to police immediately afterward. The Cossack was indicted under seal last month and is currently free on bond.

Obviously, police and McLennan County prosecutor Abelino “Abel” Reyna had at least eight of the nine homicides solved before deciding to arrest 176 people last Spring. Reyna indicted scores of people he knew to be completely innocent anyway.

    Re Paula,
    Standard procedure is to get ballistics samples from all police weapons.

  2. Paula Carroll Swann Says:

    Glad this came back around, and we know know that of officer Price only sent the 3 gun’s for ballistics as Casie questioned, as Swanton said 14 officer’s was placed on administrative leave as standard procedure after firing their weapons. WHO ARE THE OTHER 11 OFFICER’S AND WHY WASN’T THEIR WEAPONS SENT FOR BALLISTICS?

    As I re-read my last post I didn’t mean to say that driving a truck was a reading impairment. I meant to imply that truckers like audio books to fight boredom.

  7. stracc Says:

    Rebel, this book, like all of your work will be fantastic. I know that there will be many who can’t wait to get their hands on it. However, some folks drive trucks for a living or have other impairments that limit their reading. Have you thought of releasing it as an audio book on audible and other distribution channels? If you you were interested an need a narrator I would love to apply for that position. Thank you for all you do to keep us educated about this issue.

    DAYUM! How do some of these people that are just STUPID turn on a f’n computer,
    let alone post a tell-tale comment?!

    That’s some funny shit right there.

    Respects, OS

  10. Deadeye Says:

    The rounds weren’t marked by the shooter or the ammo manufacturer. They’re marked with the initials of the Medical Examiner who recovered it from the deceased, followed by the case number of either the autopsy or investigation. Hope this helps answer this question.

  11. RLG Says:

    I am finding talk of three numbered rounds. I have never heard of anything like this. Different from micro-stamping.

  12. Meh Says:

    “you would have me spell it all out for the law?”

    No, but the way you phrased it didn’t spell it out for anyone, you couldn’t possibly think it did, and you could have contacted Rebel offline if security were an issue. You knew that shit made zero sense but typed it anyway. Pointing that out is not being uptight, it’s just pointing that out. :)

    Sorry Rebel, ….. the magic is to Disappear – take a lap top and get somewhere to hideout – get your book done and be safe – throw a lateral to a trusted friend {Attorney?}, what ever to cover your self. If you do decide you need some space?….. the blue sky is having some place where you can see all around you. —- sounds like your stressing – BUMMER! Good luck and stay safe.

    @ meh ????….. deliberate gibberish? …. you would have me spell it all out for the law? Well, I did anyway. I can understand now that I realize the Rebel is stressed. So! meh. What are you all up tight about? Other peoples comments?

  15. Gandalf Says:

    If the Cops were justified in shooting so many Cossacks then so were the Bandits. Obvious Self Defense. (the spin comes in because LE didn’t plan it to happen that way. They wanted the Bandits. “Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.”

    The CS stands for Candace Schoppe M.D.who bagged and tagged the bullet. How you go’n to know where the dang thing came from.

    “Dear Parsifal,

    What the hell are you talking about? Stop talking in riddles.


    That’s not a riddle, it’s deliberate gibberish and a waste of space.

    “Keep the faith. If I don’t die first, I’ll publish a lot of what I have been sitting on in about six weeks.”

    I hope ya have a dead man option such as backup copies to be distributed if you meet with an accident. That would make taking you out counterproductive for Bacon.

  20. Rebel Says:

    Dear Parsifal,

    What the hell are you talking about? Stop talking in riddles.


  21. Rebel Says:

    Dear old spanish don,

    I know the round was marked. I don’t know that the markings indicate it was a sniper round. I don’t know why you think it makes it a sniper round. No offense, but everytime I have to painfully, step by step explain to somebody why their off the wall conspiracy theories are wrong it wastes time from the book in which I can explain to everybody what actually happened. It is particularly tedious when I have to OCR the .pdf photo-copy pages to text. This is a waste of my time.

    The passage from the autopsy report to which you refer is:

    “The left side of the face has a gunshot entrance wound located medial to the inner cantus of the left eye, 4 inches from the top of the head and 1 inch to the left of the midline. The 3/4 inch, round defect has 1/16 inch concentric marginal abrasion which is overlapped by a 1 x 3/8 inch rectangular abrasion on the lateral side of the nose and upper eye lid. Two 1/8th inch superficial lacerations are onl the upper left eyelid adjacent to the defect at 2 o’clock. The right side of the bridge of the nose has a faint superficial abrasion and the lateral side of the right nasal ala has a 1/8 inch superficial abrasion. There is no soot or stippling on the skin. Fragments of black and clear plastic are noted near the wound and a pair of broken black-framed eyeglasses are still partially on the face (as above).

    “After perforating the facial skin, the bullet perforates the medial orbital soft tissue (left globe is intact), continues through the floor of tbe left anterior cranial fossa, passes medial to the left internal carotid artery and perforates the left: side of the sella turcica to enter the posterior cranial fossa. The bullet then perforates the left cerebellar hemisphere,grazes the left side of the medulla, and partially exits the occipital skull through an oval defect with external beveling.

    “A copper-jacketed, slightly deformed, medium-caliber projectile is recovered from the occipital scalp directly beneath the
    partial exit, located 4 1/2 inches from the top of the head and 1 inch to the left of the midline. The base of the bullet is inscribed with “15-8021” over “CS”, photographed, placed in an appropriately-labeled envelope, and submitted to the Criminal Investigation Laboratory

    “The trajectory of the bullet is from front to back and slightly dmvnward with minimal right or left deviation.”

    This is clearly the round that killed him. He was shot between the eyes! It entered the front his skull. His back was to the police. Either the Cossack who approached him or the Cossack with whom he was wrestling killed him. The man who killed him was facing him and probably standing over him. Because there was no soot or stippling it was probably fired from a distance of about three feet. The only two people who could have killed him wwere the Cossacks who did it. Both Cossacks had automatic handguns. Look! Rodriguez did not turn around in the middle of his struggle so a sniper could kill him! After he died he lay with his back to the police!

    There may very well have been snipers. But by the laws of rudimentary geometry the only person who could have killed Rodriguez was the Cossack who did! The only way a sniper could have killed Rodriguez would be in a Pablo Piccasso painting! Why do you call it a “marked sniper round?!” Where do you get that from? Now let me get back to work on the book. Hit the donate button.

    Geez! That just took a half hour.


  22. Brad Milch Says:


    That you for educating me. A lot of what’s been going down in Waco from day 1 does not make sense to me. Until Rebel gets his book published & explains it all in his skilled journalistic manner, I suspect a lot more of this Waco human rights vs LEO trigger fingers goatfuck won’t make sense either as time drags on. I’m sure a lot of Rebel’s readers have been expecting trials to begin by now, especially in light of the DA sitting on supposedly irrefutable video evidence of one or more murders. What the hell is he waiting on, Poncho Villa to come back & divulge where his gold’s been buried all these years?

    I ask all Rebel supporters to help keep him safe from harm. If we lose him, all we’ve got is Swanton, CNN & Waco Trib; IOW screwed.

  23. Parsifal Says:

    Geez Rebel! You know what time it is? Magic works wonders in these type situations – It’s possible for the 6 to go down the rabbit hole – Then toss a lateral to the right receiver – blue sky can be your friend

  24. Gandalf Says:

    @atx Waco police shut down a “”constitutionally protected” Protest because of a cooler…. IE; “A POSSIBLE DANGER” to people. If, with all their intel + seeing Armed Cossacks on the reserved patio, that isn’t “a possible danger” to people I don’t know what is. Maybe they should have put up a camera and waited for a parade so the could be “heroes” when the cooler blew up? I don’t mind you being stupid but I do mind when you presume everyone else is. Jezzzz. Please use the above mentioned plastic bag….soon.

  25. old spanish don Says:

    Rebel, how did that marked sniper round end up in Jesus’s head and which bullet got there first, the head shot or the back shot??? Thank you for engaging.

  26. Rebel Says:

    Dear old spanish don,

    I have been told, and I am inclined to believe, that Rodriguez was killed by a new Cossack and I have been given his name and additional photographs of him. The longer I dig into this incident, the weirder it gets.

    I think that the death of Mohawk Rodriguez is a metaphor for the entire incident and I will present it as such in the book. Mohawk was five-four, 135 pounds. He was running away when he wheeled around, took three big steps and throat punched a Cossack with a gun. He took the guy’s back and he might have choked him out if his killer hadn’t come over and killed him. I believe he was killed by a Cossack, not by the police. At least not by police dressed as police.

    We, and by we I mean a number of journalists, sources and lawyers ( but definitely not CNN or the fucking Waco Tribune-Herald ), are getting close to the truth about all this. There are dangerous people who don’t want the truth to be told. I literally just got off the phone with a guy who is getting death threats. His wife is freaked. The women always get freaked when you get death threats.

    This whole Waco thing is America at its worst. There are perfectly nice people getting death threats because of what they know.

    Keep the faith. If I don’t die first, I’ll publish a lot of what I have been sitting on in about six weeks.


  27. FF Says:

    Rebel, thanks to you, We now know that 5 of the nine murdered victims were NOT murdered by 1%ers. And since one of the remaining 4 was a 1%er, that makes at least six that were murdered by police, or their CI’s in the Copsacks.


  28. Phuquehed Says:

    @atx – You *again* missed the point. Go test the warning label on a plastic bag, idiot.

  29. James Crawford Says:

    Re Gandolf:

    Based on my observations of various police departments, I would wager that anyone who started swinging a chain at people at Walmart would NOT be shot by responding officers unless they advanced on or threatened the officers. The cops would almost not shoot him if he was threatening only citizens.

    Of course I come from Oregon where IIRC the deadliest mass shooting prior to the Uqua Community College shooting was committed by a Clackamas County Sheriffs Deputy. After a regrettable incident in which a Portland Police officer gravely wounded his wife in an obscenely brutal manner allegedly because he didn’t realize his 12 gauge was loaded, the PPD should be distributing Kevlar condoms to their officers so that they can practice safe shotgun sex.

  30. atxpsycho Says:

    Phuquehed, I have a right to my opinion just like you have the right to yours. Last I checked there is this thing called the Constitution which grants me that right. This same Constitution means the cops couldn’t do anything. If they had you would be whining like abiatch that they violated bikers rights..go figure. Blaming the cops for this sounds like the BLM movement…

  31. chromedome Says:

    if they arrest that many it takes attention from the 4 or 5 bikers that were killed by police. i wonder how many times the police were fired upon so far i have heard nothing of the cops trying to use tear gas or any other method to dissolve the situation. fucking cowards…….


  32. Mad Dog Says:

    The piecemeal disclosure of evidence from the Waco PD has produced a kaleidoscope of bullshit that has in turn created a whirlpool of conspiracy theories and explanations, somehow equally fantastic and credible at the same time, but one thing comes through loud and clear. Law enforcement has cooked up a witches’ brew of chaos that may never be sorted out, at a terrible cost to peoples’ lives and to what’s left of the Constitution that ostensibly protects the citizens of Texas.

  33. old spanish don Says:

    Why has no one questioned the fact that Jesus’s autopsy report showed he was shot in the face and the metal jacket fragment had been marked with 15-8021 over CS on the base? He was also shot in the back and exited his chest with no fragments present. So I question the story as reported on who killed Jesus. In the first video released you see 4 shots fired by 4 people. The one that comes through the gate and fires and as soon as he moves out of the way looking straight out that gate a guy sets and fires straight in to the patio- a man in the patio squatting down returns fire towards him. Jesus tackles a guy and another guy comes up and shoots Jesus, I think in the back. It is really easy to see him fire and the smoke is visible when he fires. You can’t see clearly in the second video when he was shot. I never see the guy he scuffled with fire his weapon.

  34. Gandalf Says:

    JC says, “If we accept the claim that the police did the right thing by shooting “aggressor” bikers to protect bikers that were being attacked by the aggressors, then this would substantiate the self defense claims of many bikers.” Yep. It’s how I assumed the Bandits were attacked way before any video came out…by the # of Bandits vs Cossacks shot/killed. Early on I assumed LE shooters actually picked their targets by who was hurting who and what they saw. I NEVER thought LE just blasted “anyone with a patch.” I dare anyone to go to Walmart and get a 6′ chain and start hitting people. Jezzz I wonder what the cops might do? Or execute a guy in Joanns Fabrics Parking Lot right in front of 5-0. Hmmmm???? What do you think Texas LE would do? Hint: Blow your head off, get a medal, then jerk off to the whole experience.

  35. Meh Says:

    The recovered projectiles can be identified even if smashed by impact with a hard surface. Spectrometry can determine their metallic composition which can be linked to specific types and sometimes even batches of ammo.

    The defense should demand access to the projectiles, and the entire projectile does not have to be destructively tested. It may, for example, be drilled and the chips of jacket and core analyzed while leaving most of the bullet intact.

    I harp on spectrometry but it’s an option worth remembering for very specific identification of metal and other materials.

  36. James Crawford Says:

    If we accept the claim that the police didbthe right thing by shooting “aggressor” bikers to protect bikers that were being attacked by the aggressors, then this would substantiate the self defense claims of many bikers.

  37. T Hell Says:

    Reyna has a choice he can prosecute the couple of individuals that he has on video committing the mayhem or he can attempt to prosecute all 177. If he prosecutes those he knows to be guilty lawyers for the rest will have further admonition of their innocence.
