Jeffrey Fay Pike. El Presidente of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, was granted bail by United States Magistrate Judge John R. Froeschner yesterday after a hearing in Houston, Texas. Bond was set at $250,000. Pike was required to pay a $15,000 cash deposit.
Pike, Bandidos vice-president John Xavier Portillo and club sergeant at arms Justin Cole Forster were named in a surplusage filled, federal racketeering indictment returned on December 16 and unsealed January 6. Portillo and Forster remain in jail.
The most attention grabbing claim in the indictment is that Portillo and Forster declared “war” on the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and that Pike, in his capacity as club president, should have known about it. Multiple, informed sources have independently told The Aging Rebel that members of the Bandidos had arranged a truce with the Cossacks before the Twin Peaks Massacre.
Among the witnesses who testified on Pike’s behalf yesterday was Houston consultant Wayne Dolcefino. Dolcefino is a former investigative reporter for television station KTRK who brags on his website, “For more than twenty-five years, Wayne Dolcefino has been one of the most feared names in Texas television.”
Dolcefino testified yesterday that he had been hired by Pike on behalf of the Bandidos to investigate what happened in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco last May 17. Dolcefino said, “Mr. Pike believed they were ambushed in Waco. And that the presence of law enforcement there made it clear to him there was some conspiracy between the Cossacks and police.”
Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph C. Magliolo Jr. immediately asked Dolcefino “Would you reveal the identity of an undercover police officer investigating this organization? Yes or no?”
Dolcefino replied, “Depends on what I find out.”
The Aryan Circle
The Aging Rebel has been told by multiple informed sources beginning last May that some of the “intelligence” Waco police cited to justify their presence at the Twin Peaks that day was the fruit of a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigation into the Aryan Circle. Some of that intelligence, for example, was discovered during an ATF raid on multiple locations on April 7. The Aryan Circle is commonly described as “a large, growing and dangerous white supremacist prison gang based primarily in Texas.”
The Cossacks Motorcycle Club shares some iconography with the Aryan Circle. The Aging Rebel has identified Cossacks who were also members of the Aryan Circle and who were present at the Twin Peaks restaurant last May 17. Since last May, sources who have provided information to The Aging Rebel about the Twin Peaks Massacre have had their lives and the lives of their families threatened by persons who have represented themselves as members of the Aryan Circle.
The Aging Rebel believes that the most likely instigator of the confrontation between Bandidos and Cossacks last May was Owen “Big O” Reeves. Reeves was one of two Cossack “Nomads,” present at the brawl. Reeves is also a “Director” of the Aryan Circle.
