Texas AG Joins Waco Coverup

Yesterday, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton defied a federal subpoena to release official records that might reveal the extent to which federal police contrived and exploited for their own cynical ends the “biker brawl” in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco on May 17, 2015. The brawl left nine men dead and 19 wounded and resulted in the administrative punishment of 173 men and four women with life altering incarcerations, draconian fines in the form of “bonds,” and property forfeitures.

The subpoena was issued by James C. Winton, an attorney representing the owners of the Waco Twin Peaks franchise, in a federal civil  case in Dallas on May 21.

Winton sought documents possessed by the Texas Department of Public Safety pertaining to joint state and federal motorcycle club investigations. The information Winton sought included:

Interesting Things To Know

“Writings or Recordings that refer, relate, or pertain to any investigation of motorcycle clubs or bike nights at any other restaurant or other venue hosting “bike nights” in Texas during the period May 17, 2014 – May 17, 2015.”

“Writings or Recordings that refer, relate, or pertain to any investigation of the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents, including but not limited to regional meetings in Texas during the period May 17, 2014 – May 17, 2015.”

“All Writings or Recordings that refer, relate, or pertain to the ‘support and investigation assistance’ provided to the Waco Police Department concerning the Incident.”

“Operations plan, tactical or otherwise, including notes from any preparatory meetings discussing the planning, staffing, overtime forces needed, assignments, location/deployment of officers, weapons to be used, emergency medical personnel assigned and on standby, and defensive measures to be used such as helmets/body armor, including but not limited to bulletproof vests.”

“Memorandum of understanding between You and the Waco Police Department.”

“All Writings, Recordings or other communication, including text, e-mail, and radio, between You or officers of any other Law Enforcement Agency or and any other personnel of any Law Enforcement Agency that refer, relate, or pertain to the Incident or
to the anticipated Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents meeting scheduled to occur at 1 p.m. on May 17, 2015 at Twin Peaks Waco.”

“All video and audio recording of any activity of the Bandidos, Cossacks, or other motorcycle clubs, gangs or organizations between April 1 and May 17, 2015.”

“All Writings and Recordings, including but not limited to field notes, reports, and MDT entries or logs, that refer, relate, or pertain to any visits made to Legends Cycles by Your personnel at any time between May 17, 2014 and May 17, 2015.”

“All Writings and Recordings that refer, relate, or pertain to social media postings of any of those arrested on charges of engaging in a criminal conspiracy in relation to the events of May 17, 2015 at Twin Peaks Waco or any of their immediate family, friends, or acquaintances.”

Training Manuals

Yesterday Paxton refused to release any information except some excerpts from some Department of Public Safety training manuals.

He complained that “two pending prosecutions and an ongoing criminal investigation related to the documents identified in this subpoena…would be undermined by disclosure of the records in DPS’ possession.”

The “ongoing investigation” may refer to an investigation the Department of Justice is calling “Operation Texas Rocker” that led to an indictment returned against three Bandidos Motorcycle Club officers on December 16, 2015 and unsealed on January 5, 2016. A press release issued by Richard L. Durbin, Jr., the United States Attorney for the Western District of Texas, described Operation Bottom Rocker as a 23-month- long investigation that was “ongoing.”

Joshua Moore

Or the ongoing investigation may refer to a Drug Enforcement Administration investigation into the Cossacks. That investigation was initiated on May 28, 2015 by DEA special agent Russ Culver and DEA Tactical Field Officer Joshua Moore. Tactical Field Officers are local police officers deputized by a federal police agency. TFOs are used almost exclusively as undercover officers in federal investigations.

The two “pending prosecutions” Paxton thinks would be subverted by telling the truth are United States  v. John Xavier Portillo, Jeffery Fay Pike and Justin Cole Forster, the lone case that has resulted so far from Operation Texas Rocker and Texas v. Matthew Clendennen.

On January 25, 2016, forty days after the Bandidos indictment was returned by the grand jury, a federal judge named David A. Ezra “ordered that given the sensitive nature of the discovery material, for any material provided, production and viewing of discovery materials is restricted to the United States Attorney’s Office by appointment.”

Clendennen was a victim of the mass arrests that followed the Twin Peaks brawl. Clendennen’s lawyer, Clint Broden filed a “Motion to Reveal Identity of Confidential Informants and Undercover Law Enforcement Officials.” Broden filed the motion on February 2, 2016. Waco judge Matt Johnson denied the motion on April Fools’ Day.

Paxton is currently under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for violating multiple federal laws in 2011.

    Wealthy friends and donors of Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton have chipped in nearly $330,000 to cover his legal defense against criminal charges of securities fraud, according to state filings made public Tuesday.


  2. Paula Carroll Swann Says:

    Also the fact of the Bottom Rocker began on March 22, 2015 at the gas station in Palo Pinto, As the indictment dated December 16,2015…THAT’S 10 MONTHS. The court doc’s list the bike nights and NOTHING HAPPENED but 1 guy was arrested at Joann’s fabric store for having a weapon in his red truck.

    Dear Tom Barker,

    Thank you for your kind words.

    Dear Mr. Davis, I have just finished reading “The Twin Peaks Ambush.” I am in the process of writing an article entitled “Shootout at Waco: Biker Violence and Police Overreation” for presentation at a meeitng of the American Society of Criminology. If the article is well received I intend to write a scholarly book on the topic. Your book is very helpful. I will cite your work liberally.

    Parsifal – I had to look that one up! LMAO. Definitely.



  6. david Says:

    @ Unlisted,
    One result of wearing the brown lipstick you use is the inability to distinguish between good and bad in a real, non-governmental world.

    Another is the inability to perceive facts. All governments degenerate over time. Gov. pension funds have been mis-invested, mis-managed, and/or stolen. How’s your gov. pension doing?

  7. Shovelhead Says:

    That was great!!

  8. VC Says:

    The question I keep asking myself is what the fuck is wrong with the people that live in this area that they let this bullshit go on? How many groups of people are going to be slaughtered by their local law enforcement before they say enough? If the average citizen in this area feels that this behavior is acceptable and they can do whatever they damn well feel like regardless of the laws of this nation, then perhaps if Donald gets a chance to build his wall we should place Texas on the other side and let the Mexicans have these fuckheads

    @NC Rider – Teddy The Troll is flexing his internet muscles. That would be his sphincter.

  10. Gandalf Says:

    “Yes Ted, your a turd in the punch bowl of life! You must be very proud.”

  11. NCRider Says:

    Base – I enjoyed that. Well said. Teddy The Troll is flexing his internet muscles. It makes him feel imporant.



  12. Bone Head Says:

    Base has Teddy nailed. If I may, I have another thought for Teddy to be amused at. If and when LEOs get all us “delusionsl conspiracy theorists” off the streets, who does that leave for them to “protect”? Could the law of the land turn it’s attention to trolls? Could you become a (gasp) FELON?

    Think about it Teddy.

  13. Base Says:

    @ Ted Unlis

    Teddy, teddy, teddy. You are lacking in any real moral quality’s, I have read your comments here & other threads and in true troll-is tic fashion they lack even the slightest of imagination or originality. You pop in, insult free thinking and constitutionally educated men & women.

    People such as the Author of this page and many of the commenters worry people such as you.And the best you can muster to make your self feel better is to lash out on the internet. So brave!

    You should understand the BS you attempt to float sinks like a rock.

    The Ambush in Waco was exactly that! It was organized and put into action by dishonorable & corrupt individuals desperate to save a yet another failed operation. Just to get a little ego boost & add revenue too the prison industrial complex.

    The reality: People such as you and the aforementioned morally bankrupt individuals who initiated the Waco Ambush are now scrambling to cover their collective asses, the thing is you & they no better than the Islamic shitheads who attack & kill unarmed citizens.

    The city of Waco has written checks that will be cashed by those they sought to ruin. Waco has been a cesspool of corruption for many years and the people of Waco are fed up with it. One can only hope you are connected to that lot in some manner and personally feel the sting of whats coming.

    Yes Ted, your a turd in the punch bowl of life! You must be very proud.

    One of the named Defendants in the 13 Federal civil rights cases has announced his retirement.


  15. Ted Unlis Says:

    When it comes to delusionsl conspiracy theorists rants, nothing tops the crank tweaked paranoia in this forum. Too funny!

  16. von Zipper Says:

    Waco LE, Reyna and Paxton are living proof why cousins shouldn’t marry. Bunch of inbred cousin humpers, the whole lot of them.

  17. david Says:

    Paxton, whether he realizes it or not, can now be a named defendant in all the Title 42 civil lawsuits pending, or yet to be filed.

    He is now involved in criminal obstruction of the courts, in the state criminal, and the federal civil lawsuits. As an attorney, he cannot use the defense of lack of knowledge.

  18. Jackie Treehorn Says:

    @ ak rack
    Baylor? Imagine that!

  19. ak rack Says:

    Paxton may be living in McKinney now, but he was born in Minot, North Dakota and he went college at Baylor.

  20. Ted Unlis Says:

    Actually the AG is from McKinney.

  21. TinCan Says:

    Not surprised since the rectum AG is also from Waco, er Wacko. Take this sucker to the state Supreme court and lets get some authority on it since he won’t follow the federal one..

  22. Nuke n' Pave Dave Says:

    It sounds to me like discovery is gonna be a clusterfuck in this case.

  23. Paula Carroll Swann Says:

    Try to get the Lorena PD files of detective Rogers on the R.C. case. He is who had said had the undercover. As it was March 22, 2015 atb3:15pm.
    March 28, 2015 is when the cop’s went to Legend Cycles.

  24. Jaded Says:

    It’s astounding that an AG would be facing so many charges, still be in office AND be defying all elements of a federal subpoena. Always seemed to me that Texas had a justice system independent from the rest of the country and this sorta confirms that notion. Hopefully Paxton will learn that defiance of an order issued by a federal judge results in big problems…

    In addition to those individuals that are wrongfully charged, the cost to the public will be phenomenal. This Waco situation is a mess of the highest order.

  25. Gandalf Says:

    I’m thinking a whole lot more innocent people were arrested in Waco last year than Transgenders were arrested in the wrong damn bathroom!

  26. USNDragon Says:

    Figured I would chime in to say everything Potmetal and Chopper said is true. The ridiculous Legal position of Waco LE, Reyna, and Paxton seems to be: “Nothing to see here Folks, just our usual illegal perversions of the Courts, being committed by us, the frauds of Justice”.

    Far be it from me to back the Federal Courts, but how the fuck has a contempt charge against these fucking Morons not been drawn up? Trust me when I tell you the Government and Judiciary of Texas (where I live) is unbelievably corrupt and full of Shit to the top of Governor Abbotts’ Blood stained Wheelchair.

  27. Rocco151 Says:

    With Rebel’s excellent coverage of events and CHOPPER’S lucid comment I can only add that I wholeheartedly agree with both ! Ride safe !

  28. XYZ Says:

    And, of course, then there’s the Paxton mugshot fiasco, which proves once again what’s good for the goose is not good for the gander –


  29. XYZ Says:

    There is a number of legal issues with Paxton, in addition to the SEC civil case.

    There are also three felony indictments against him for securities fraud:


    AUSTIN — A Dallas appeals court on Wednesday upheld Attorney General Ken Paxton’s three felony fraud indictments, a decision he is likely to appeal to the highest criminal court in the state….

    Paxton is also facing other legal problems. The federal government has also charged him with fraud, this time a civil charge, for the same issues alleged in his indictments.

    He is also facing a State Bar complaint for telling county clerks in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on gay marriage to consider their religious beliefs when marrying same-sex couples.

    Paxton has experienced several high-profile departures at his agency, where a News investigation revealed he was paying former staffers thousands of dollars long after they departed his office. Gov. Greg Abbott weighed in on that issue Wednesday, telling state agencies to quit the practice and wait for the Legislature to decide whether it should continue.

  30. Lou Sassel Says:

    Crazy that Paxon can keep his job 5 years into a SEC investigation, but many of them the wrongly accused lost their jobs while sitting in jail with a bullshit bail over their heads.

  31. Chopper Says:

    @ Potmetal Dead on. The tax payer and those that were wrongly treated will suffer. At 50 I reserve the fact and hate it, that we as a nation are screwed by lawless leadership who write their own rules. It’s frustrating to see it unfold and as a citizen can do very little, lawfully to stop it. I appreciate Rebel and everyone here that shares their thoughts on freedom and the American way of life.It’s reassuring to know I’m not alone.

  32. Potmetal Says:

    Lawless enforcing their version of law. Yet citizens are hoping to win by following the law.

    Sadly, I’m certain that even if the lights come on and these cockroaches are shown to be dirty, they’re moment of shame will be short, and they will be back on the horse in no time flat.

    The true losers will be the citizens. Yes, some will settle big with Waco, but those settlements will only cost other citizens. Lost public projects and higher taxes will be the reward for most.

    One can be brazen, confident, and stupid when gambling with another groups freedom and resources…. especially when there are no personal consequences.

  33. XYZ Says:

    It really is shocking Texas AG, Paxton is now an overt, active participant in the delay. There is discussion about putting trials off for YEARS.

    It is overwhelmingly evident some (if not many) of those arrested had absolutely nothing to do with this. And some, based on photos from hearings and booking photo appear to be aged and/or infirm.

    There will be an even higher level of moral outrage if some of these elderly/infirm were to pass without their names first being cleared.

  34. Punisher Keeper Says:

    Give these motherfuckers a job and they turn it into there own cluster fuck circus…. All in the name of power and control

  35. Brad Milch Says:

    I think my Magic-8 Ball might be finally breaking down after all these years of use, Rebel.
    Each time I turn the ball upside down & ask it if the key players in the Waco Biker Massacre should be in jail (Swanton, Reyna & crew, Paxton, Abbott, etc.), when the ball is turned upright, I get the same answer for all except Reyna: answer ‘yes’.

    For Reyna, the answer the ball gives me is: ‘execution would be better’

  36. Dan-O Says:

    “Justice remains the tool of a few powerful interests; legal interpretations will continue to be made to suit the convenience of the oppressor powers.”

    Rebel used this quote in The Twin Peaks Ambush and I can’t think of a better way to say it.

  37. Dripy Says:

    The tails waggin the dawg. Really waiting to see this fall apart from the state side. Then they can start writing checks.

    What a fuckin circus…bs law enforcement

  38. T Hell Says:

    Winton should file for all charges to be dropped immediately until such time as his client is able to have access to all information that may be used against him by the govt.

  39. Jackie Treehorn Says:

    “Paxton is currently under investigation by the Securities and Exchange Commission for violating multiple federal laws in 2011” ?????!!!!!

    Well I’ll be dawg.

  40. Phuquehed Says:

    And yet if one of us peons had refused a subpoena, I just wonder what the fuck would happen to us.

    Fuck you Reyna and fuck you too Paxton, you corrupt pieces of dog shit.
