Waco Defendant In Coma

The criminal justice system in Texas just punished Marcus Pilkington some more. Pilkington, a Bandido from Mexia, in Limestone County Texas, about 40 miles east of Waco, was the last defendant in the Twin Peaks prosecution to make bail.

Usually reliable sources have told The Aging Rebel that Pilkington is now in a medically induced coma at the Limestone Medical Center in Groesbeck, Texas under police guard. A medically induced coma is a drug induced medical procedure similar to anesthesia that is used to protect an injured brain from further injury. Patients usually remain in this kind of coma for less than two weeks. Pilkington was hospitalized Tuesday night.

Misfortune

Pilkington’s road to the Twin Peaks was long and hard.

He was convicted of possession of marijuana in Navarro County in 1999. He eventually joined the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and in 2009, at a time when the Cossacks were generally considered to be a family club, he joined the Bandidos. Pilkington suffered a life-changing motorcycle accident in 2013. He sustained facial injuries and a broken leg, he lost his spleen and he suffered a traumatic brain injury. The next year, his stepfather died and his wife and children left him.

Pilkington suffered from common symptoms of traumatic brain injury including emotional outbursts and an urge to self-medicate. Before he was shot in Waco, he was charged with four crimes related to his marital breakup in Limestone and Ellis Counties. He was charged with domestic violence, evidence tampering and possession of a prohibited substance in a correctional facility in Limestone County and stalking in Ellis County.

Injustice

At the time of the Twin Peaks brawl, Pilkington was working as a mechanic for the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services and his annual salary was $12,566. He rode his motorcycle to the Twin Peaks, arrived a few minutes before the shooting started, briefly exchanged angry words with a Cossack and was shot in the leg a few minutes after that. He told police he had been armed only with a pocket knife and that he could not identify the man who shot him.

His bond was set at $1 million and he remained incarcerated at the McLennan County Jail until his bail was reduced to $25,000. He was released on November 2, 2015.

While incarcerated, Dane Schiller of the Houston Chronicle wrote a a feature story about Pilkington that described him as “addicted to methamphetamine,” a “bruiser” and a “leg breaker.”

Pilkington’s brain injuries appear to be permanent. He takes prescribed medicine for his handicap and he was allowed that medicine while he was in jail in Waco.

He attended a hearing on his 2014 charges at the Limestone County Courthouse in Groesbeck last Friday. He expected to be given probation so he did not have his medicine with him. Instead he was taken to the county jail. His mother tried to take his medication to him but the local jailers refused to let him have it.

Four days later Pilkington suffered his near-fatal seizure.

    Thunderbird,
    Unfortunately, the sheeple are too busy watching the Kartrashians, or sucking at the public teat to engage in revolution. Any of us who try to revolt against the system will be castigated by the authorities and the general populace for interrupting their electronic addiction of entertainment.

    Ponder This. Unlike common law there is no moral foundation to administrative law. In order to enforce this law it takes people that have no objective conscience or objective reasoning ability.

    The reason there is no innocent plea in an administrative court is self evident. Many administrative laws are just plain bad and cause unintended consequences. Consequently many otherwise innocent people get caught in the web of these laws. And like the spiders that they are many in the business of administrative justice suck the blood out of their victims with not a thought of remorse on their conscienceless hearts.

    Administrative law is destroying our country. It has created the police State. The police State has no conscience and cannot reason objectively. And the absence of objective reason will push the population into rebellion. This is not a threat. It is a historical fact.

    Wonder how hard it would be, to find out the name of this jailer, and put this story on some fliers? Leave those fliers in their neighbors mailboxes, kids school, etc?

    Facts prove there is nothing legal in the so-called “criminal” just-ice system. Commonly used language changed over time from “legal system” to a cold, uncaring, merciless “just-ICE” bullshit system.

    @lonewolf That account is not active. Please no one send money to it. He does not need money for bond. Prayers for good health are all that is needed at this time.

    I wonder where Kim Il Swanton fits in on the Major Dickhead scale in the cop world. If he’s not at, or near the top, things are very bad.

    So sad. I guess his kids can sue but I bet they would rather have their dad than $1,000,000.

    10Gauge, not with a full-body condom.

    I hope that his lawyers find the case of Ray Fox vs IDOC…the hacks withheld Fox’s seizure meds in the ‘Ville, and he ended up winning $12,000,000.00 from the State of Illinois behind it.

    Course, he was a tad dain-bramaged, but it got the point across.

    @ Cape Cod,

    There is no legal reason or justification to withhold an individual’s prescribed medications. When one is in the custody of another, the custodian of record is 100% responsible for that individual’s continued well being and care.

    “Ironically, a jailer actually told her “I don’t care if your leg falls off, I’m not in charge of making sure you get your pills.”

    The above is an actionable tort under a claim of deliberate indifference.

    Long May You Ride,

    Fuck the police

    Similar thing happened to my aunt while in Brazoria County jail. Spent a week in jail over a bogus “bad check” charge before it was finally resolved. Woman suffers from MS, and they wouldn’t give her any of her meds…including her blood thinners, which would later result in blood clots in her legs that required several surgeries and an eventual amputation at the knee.

    Ironically, a jailer actually told her “I don’t care if your leg falls off, I’m not in charge of making sure you get your pills.”

    The feds have prosecuted Christian scientists for withholding medication and care, but they can do the same thing without legal reasons?

    Unfortunately this man has had a target on his back from the combination of having a traumatic brain injury and wearing a 1% patch. LE thought he would be easy prey. Three years later he has learned to adapt to his disability and was living a productive life, a changed man. They may keep trying to hold him down but he will keep proving them wrong. He is a dedicated, good father to his children and a loyal brother to his club. He will keep living a clean life and show that he is not the man the media has made him out to be. He is strong and he will survive this. And to the circus crowd of informants, jailers, and corrupt law enforcement who have tried to bring this man down. KMFA
