The intended entrapment operation at the Waco Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015 and the bloodbath and the coverup that followed continue to reverberate like a drum in a canyon on a moonless night in hell.
An impeccably moral and devout young man named Patrick-Jim Harris was detained, questioned and expelled from Mexico over the weekend. His nickname is “Saint.” He is from Texas. They put him on a plane to Seattle. He is a graduate student at Saint Edwards University in Austin.
He was in Mexico with a self-described physician, comedian, social activist, clown, and author named Hunter Doherty “Patch” Adams who was the subject of a 1998, PG-13 rated movie starring Robin Williams. The sentimental film would have been rated as appropriate for little children except that it is set in a hospital and many of the characters die. In real life, the 71-year-old Adams is the founder of the Gesundheit! Institute which espouses non-traditional medical treatment including the idea that laughter can help people heal.
Every year Adams organizes volunteers who go to places like Mexico. The volunteers dress as clowns and try to make sick and sad children laugh. That’s what Saint Harris was doing there. And, he was kicked out of the country not because of anything he had done but because of what he was wrongly accused of having done. Harris tried to attend a Confederation of Clubs and Independents meeting in Waco 647 days ago. He did not get to the meeting before it erupted into gunfire and chaos. He was a little late.
Harris is a member of a motorcycle club called the Grim Guardians which is a brotherhood of motorcycle enthusiasts who share the mission of helping children in need. Harris and two other men named Juan Garcia and Drew King were detained “outside the police perimeter” set up around the Central Texas Market Place and arrested for “carrying weapons into a crime scene.”
They were never taken to the Waco Convention Center with more than 200 witnesses after the Twin Peaks bloodbath because they had not witnessed anything. Harris was charged with a misdemeanor, spent the night in jail, bailed out and went home with his two club brothers.
The next day a ranting, dissembling police propagandist named Patrick Swanton announced to the throng of reporters who had flocked to Waco to tell the world about a real life episode of Sons of Anarchy that three “gang members” had been mistakenly released. After Harris, Garcia and King heard they were wanted men they turned themselves in at the Austin federal courthouse. They were charged with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity and their bails were reset to $1 million each.
Harris attracted the attention of a Christian writer named Candy Chand. She reported in the Huffington Post that “during his time in custody, Patrick maintained his composure by creating a Rosary out of the only jailhouse material available – toilet paper.”
So far, 155 men have been indicted in Waco by a cruel parody of a grand jury and a heartless prosecutor named Abelino Reyna. One of the indicted men died. The remainder may eventually be tried or they may simply be lynched. Thirty-eight of the men and women who were arrested in the aftermath of the Twin Peaks bloodbath have never been indicted but at the same time Reyna has never bothered to try to have their good names cleared.
One of those men is Patrick-Jim Harris who was kicked out of Mexico a few days ago – because Reyna and Swanton called him a gang member and a murderer. People who actually know him call him Saint.
