Waco Twin Peaks Gravy Train

Uncle Sugar is giving the city of Waco, Texas and McLennan County, which encompasses that moral cesspool on the Brazos, $517,468.72 to cover costs associated with accomplishing the Waco human rights atrocity. Although, the 72 cents seems to have been tacked onto the government gifts to imply that the whole, grizzly affair was accomplished by people who are so obsessive about detail that they count every penny.

The money will be shoveled out of a big pile in a vault in Washington called the Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grants, which sounds almost as punctilious as 72 cents. The Byrne Grants totaled $255.8 million in 2015 which is about $35.1 million less than the Department of Justice paid to police agencies in 2014.

Follow The Money

The city asked for $248,841 last January. Most of the money will be used to reimburse the Waco Police Department for overtime associated with the May 17, 2015 brawl in which nine people were killed and a score wounded. The money will also be used to buy new “equipment” and reimburse the Waco Transit System, the Waco Fire Department and four police departments in surrounding towns for their costs during and after the deadly operation.

McLennan County will receive $268,527.72 in federal money that was passed through the State of Texas as a County Essential Services Justice Grant. The County applied for its big check in February.

Delicate Desperdos

Exactly $190,010.98 of that amount will be paid to the privately owned Jack Harwell Detention Center. The Detention Center is notorious for sexual assaults. A prisoner death on May 30, 2016 is currently under investigation by state and federal authorities. Relatives of many of the 177, mostly innocent, people illegally arrested immediately after the Twin Peaks brawl complained to the Texas Commission on Jail Standards. The Commission found no mistreatment and that inspired Craig Malisow of the Houston Press to report, “If one didn’t know any better, one might assume that these ‘outlaw’ bikers accused of engaging in organized criminal activity are among the most delicate desperados in recent memory.” Harwell is owned and operated by a company named LaSalle Corrections.

The county will also be reimbursed $53,898 for about 1855 hours of employee overtime, which works out to about $29 per hour. The county will also be reimbursed for autopsies of the nine men killed in the brawl including the costs of driving their bodies to Dallas, where the autopsies were performed.

    People have to accept that they may think differently than the general population. Want to live your own life? You may want to do so away from the main stream restaurant scene to iron things out.

    Here’s where “public opinion” will hinge. How many cut wearing bikers were there, and how many weapons were recovered? If the reports read in main stream media are correct, 99% of the population may not be too concerned about the specifics of who got locked up, or for how long. The wheels of Justice have never spun very fast.

    U.S. Department of Justice was wrong to give money to support the Waco police shooting into a crowded restaurant . Who made this decision ?

  3. Nobody Important Says:

    Y’all keep thinking anyone involved in this clusterfuck is going to see justice.

    They wont. Not by a long shot.

    “Be polite, Be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet” LOL TY TX_Biker I used to worry that my thoughts (plans) were abnormal. LOL

    @ Elmo,
    Yes Someone did say that once. I prefer this quote;
    “Be polite, Be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet”

    This is just a drop in the bucket. Waco and TX will be paying for this mess. The civil suits haven’t even got rolling yet.

    Lately, people have been criticizing Donald Trump for not paying any taxes. I applaud him.

    The NSDAP wouldn’t fuck up a country as badly as this one is. They might well kill you, but they’d do it legally. The comparisons to “Nazi Germany” prove-out the decades of brainwashing that has taken ace in our programming-centers, er, schools.

    The actions of the Mandarins in Waco, as in amerika, inc., as a whole, are much closer to those of the CCCP, using the NKVD as it’s enforcement arm, much as the atf is used here.

    @ TX_Biker
    I’m afraid it happened when we weren’t paying attention. We weren’t paying attention because we trusted. Someone once said to me, “TRUST NO ONE” I hate to be a cynical prick but damn it all.

  13. Gandalf Says:

    “Chump Change” They are going to need more than that…. Lot’s more. One day that fund might pay for a few new Motorcycles and College for Bandit Children. Maybe even Baylor. LOL That fund had 2B to start in 09. It’s good to know that the asshole that fucked you has $.

  14. popeye Says:

    I’m guessing the “new equipment ” that needs replacing is for the police weapons that had to be thrown out to hide ballistic evidence. Remember only 3 cops fired their weapons while the rest stood around using the usual restraint that cops are known for.

  15. TX_Biker Says:

    How in the fuck did we let this country go this far down the toilet. This entire event sounds like it should have happened in 1940 somewhere in Nazi Germany.

  16. Lurch Says:

    Let the people of Waco pay the price for electing corrupt officials. Maybe next election they will elect someone decent!

    Respects to the deserving.
