Evolving Bandidos Case

Prosecutors in the virtually cloistered trial of Bandidos Jeffrey Pike and John Portillo continue to twist the Waco Twin Peaks Mass Murder as a malicious attack by eight blood thirsty Bandits on 70 gentle Cossacks. Simultaneously, Waco remains a hidden word at the trial.

The original indictment that led to this trial, against Pike, Portillo and former Bandido Justin Cole Forster, alleged that Portillo had “declared that the Bandidos OMO was ‘at war’ with the Cossacks Outlaw Motorcycle Organization” after a fight between four Cossacks and 10 Bandidos in Abilene in November 2013,

“On a date unknown, but prior to December 12, 2014, John Portillo again informed Dallas area Bandidos OMO members that they were ‘at war’ with the Cossacks OMO.”

And the government, for all practical purposes, lied when it said “On or about December 12,2014, Bandidos OMO members entered the Gators Jam Inn in Fort Worth, Texas, where members of the Cossacks OMO, Ghost Riders OMO and Winos OMO were conducting a meeting. Bandidos OMO members immediately began assaulting the OMO members present and Ghost Riders OMO member G.B. was shot and ldlled.” The accusation is skillfully worded to reinforce the notion that the Bandidos were pursuing a war against the Cossacks.


At the time, there was a single Cossack in the bar. The dispute was between a Bandido and a member of the Wino’s Crew Motorcycle Club over a woman. Ghost Rider Motorcycle Club member Geoffrey Brady was killed during the gunfight. Two Bandidos were wounded including a Waco firefighter. A local Bandidos chapter president named Howard Wayne Baker was convicted of murder for Brady’s death, not because he actually murdered Brady but under Texas’ unique law of parties. The logic of that law goes: Baker was the ranking Bandido at the crime scene; the other Bandidos would not have been there without Baker’s acquiescence; therefore Baker was responsible for the murder; and also Baker had very scary facial tattoos so he made a good villain.

The Wino’s Crew is an offshoot of the Boozefighters Motorcycle Club and is named in honor of Boozefighters founder William “Wino Willie” Forkner. Forkner died in June 1997. Five months before the fight in Fort Worth, members of the Wino’s Crew and the Boozefighters engaged in a gunfight at a Chevron in Hollister, California. At the time of Brady’s murder, Bandidos and Winos rarely double dated. It remains unclear who fired the first shot.

March 2015

According to the original indictment filed on December 16, 2015. Portillo had asked Pike to “‘turn his back from what I’m gonna do’ in an attempt to shield Pike from criminal responsibility when referencing his intended orders regarding the war with the Cossacks OMO. On March 3, 2015, John Portillo again declared that the Bandidos OMO was ‘at war’ with the Cossacks OMO. Portillo indicated he ‘wants that Texas rocker back,’ referencing the Texas bottom rocker worn by Cossacks OMO members without Bandidos OMO permission. On or about March 3,2015,”

But that statement is also carefully worded to obscure the truth. Cossacks didn’t wear a Texas bottom rocker “without” the Bandidos permission but, on the contrary, with it.

Nevertheless, the prosecution tried to hammer home the same, misleading point in Pike and Portillo’s trial last week. Jurors heard a tape recorded conversation between Portillo and former Bandido Johnny Romo and then listened to a DEA agent tell them what they were supposed to have heard.

Romo had previously agreed to spy on the Bandidos for the government in return for leniency after Romo was caught dealing drugs. What Portillo actually said was: “We’re not going to fuck around with them Cossacks, dude. It’s on. Our patch, our club, is at war with these assholes.”


Cossacks had been acting like they were at war with the Bandidos. What is most interesting about the tape recording is that internal criticism of documents associated both the federal Bandidos case and the Twin Peaks Mass murder strongly suggests that two DPS agents named Christopher Frost and Steven Schwartz heard the tape in which Portillo grumbled about the patch issue and they heard it that month – March 2015. In a written report produced shortly after the mass murder the two men state they learned “the Bandido OMG and Cossacks MC were at odds due to the Cossacks wearing the bottom ‘Texas’” after a dozen Cossacks severely beat a Bandido named Rolando Campos as he rode home from a club party in Tyler, Texas on March 22 – 19 days after Romo enticed Portillo to say he wanted, “that Texas bottom rocker back.” The Texas bottom rocker wasn’t an issue. Everybody in both clubs knew the Cossacks had the Bandidos permission to wear “Texas.”

But in their report, Frost and Schwartz say Lorena “police told” them 19 days after Portillo’s secretly recorded statement, two years after a federal task force began trying to get something on the Bandidos national chapter, 56 days before the Twin Peaks Mass Murder, “that members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club carried out the assault and that ‘the Bandido OMG and Cossacks MC were at odds due to the Cossacks wearing the bottom ‘Texas’ rocker on the back lower portion of their jackets.’”

Last week a DEA agent Chad Lloyd, who may be up to his neck in the Waco murders, told jurors that by February 2015, Pike and Portillo had decided to take the Texas bottom rocker back.

It is impossible to know whether the jurors are smart enough or not to know you can’t shove toothpaste back in a tube, but it is increasingly obvious that the Department of Justice is making this case up as it goes along.

Oh, and also nobody in this trial is ever allowed to say “Waco.”

    Too fucking stupid to realize mentioning his MC *should* be an embarassment, plus the fact most patched club members know enough to *not* get caught up in these discussions in the way Zed ‘duh?’ Rebel has.

    Fucktardery seems to be growing in the popups and the people in them.

  2. Wow...just wow Says:

    All these yea-who’s talking about how some club they are NOT a member of, and really know nothing about, except what some le expert has said, prove themselves not to be true 1%ER’s when they come on here, or elsewhere, talking about a different clubs business… a REAL 1%ER doesn’t do that. A real 1%ER doesn’t talk about his own clubs business, or any other clubs business. But, if I can casually make an observation, I’d say the club zed is putting down with his warrior keyboard, is doing pretty damn good, considering they still exist after the massive onslaught the Leo; federal, state, local- (hell,even a justice of the peace) have brought down on them!! If you live in a state where the red and gold are, you see them out in big numbers, still riding, still holding thier runs and not hiding from anyone…plus, I do not see them begging for help from anyone- fundraiser for cash for lawyers and such, but for the most part they appear to be paying thier brothers legal bills, like brothers,and going about doing the business of being a 1% Motorcycle club.

  3. Austin Says:

    Zed + “z” or else it is a character in a video game;


    Personally I was thinking it was about Miller time, but maybe it is half p*ass*t Budweiser.

    Or probably it’s just the boys from Glendale, bouncing through the bandwidths.

    Dear Zed,

    Please calm down. I.m in LA. You’re in Queensland. You’re not one of those Aussie cops are you?

  7. Neuro Says:

    zed might be a bikie in Australia, which would totally raise his level of badassedness if he is a Rebel there. I think RtC is in Oklahoma, so they would never meet… hey man, wasn’t zed a character in Pulp Fiction who repeatedly raped the black gansta Marsellus ?? Dude had the leather queer “gimp” locked in a box down in the basement. Didn’t Bruce Willis steal the sled from zed ?

  8. Shutup Says:

    So the Waco trib is running stories on this trial. Think that they’re trying to pollute the pool for the next TP trial. All the stories they have run seem to be weeks old.
    Respect to the deserving

    @ zed Talk about a key-board tough guy. LMFAO How much did you have to pay the little nigger Sawdust to get your rebels patch? Or did you let him fuck you in

    Respects to the REAL & especially REBEL

  14. oldskewl Says:


    I think it’s funny how even though we don’t know a face we can figure out who someone is by the way they comment on any subject. If you’re that big of an asshole on the internet, most likely you’re an even bigger one in real life.


  15. zed Says:

    its all smoke and mirrors, surely the Mexicans were pissed with the socks over this rocker issue big time, the feds have been trying to nail the Mexicans for some time now, waco just happened to play into it, the Mexicans have their own problems, club sounds like its falling apart in texas, and this kinfolk thingy sounds like the Mexicans that started it are ex cop/fed supporters, where are the real 1 %er clubs I ask, you are supposed to be outlaws, you don’t do good, boy things have changed over the last 40 years ive been on the road………..

    Vinnie 1″

  18. Neuro Says:

    Yeah OS, he was on here a couple months ago, same unmistakable writing style with the same bluster, talking down hard at the Bandidos MC. It was around the time the articles appeared about the former Australian Bandit douchebag rapper with all the face tats calling himself AK47. Redwolf the Concho Man called him out, and Rebel confirmed it was him.

  19. oldskewl Says:

    Oh, speaking of shitbags. Vince81 is back trolling the forums.. I’m not sure if he’s tried to post here yet but you’ll know when you see him post under whatever name he’ll be using this time around.

    Respects, OS

  20. oldskewl Says:

    I don’t “talk about clubs” except for my distaste for the IO and Cossacks.

    Whew… Glad we got that cleared up. Thought for sure i saw Sonny’s name in their once or twice as well. People of all shapes find this site and the people here the don’t understand but for some reason the try really hard to fit in. It makes sense when you think about the suburban weekend warrior but it’s not so clear when people don’t even understand the “wind therapy”… That’s what starts the ball rolling.

    Have a great weekend all

  21. panamaa Says:

    Phuquehed !!!!! Good to hear from you sir, long time, no post… I hope things are well.

  22. RT Says:

    Paladin respects to you sir not so much for the other guy.

  23. Phuquehed Says:

    Gandalf, you’ve gone senile, or have old age dementia or are just going fucking nuts. You sound a lot like my 80 year old mom who’s doing the same, saying speed limits were designed to kill the stupid and are carried on by Obama (Hey, I hate Obama as much as the next guy, but nutcase conspiracy shit like this no matter who is in it is just that – nutcase). You gone Looney Toons. Just don’t jump off a 300 foot tall cliff thinking you’ll catch the road runner, is about all the advice you can handle I believe.

    As for the pigs and feds lying in this case, *AGAIN*, it’s not going to change until the sheeple have it happen to *them* more often. Like that mayor that had his house raided by the pigs, he got shit changed some (the story is in one of Rebels books).

    So, fuck the pigs, fuck the feds, fuck the corrupt prosecutors who only do what they do so they can get a higher pay grade and not for anything ethical or right, and fuck the judges who mostly have their heads wrapped in their robes and using as a giant Q-tip to clean their assholes with.

    Because Gandalf has no self control, he runs his mouth like a crack whore and unfortunately will be back. With Gandalf it’s: Wash, rinse, repeat. And as always, long may you ride.

    Hey, Paladin is considered the sage old Grand Poobah by many on here. Those are some pretty hash words sir.

    Ya no shit,

    I’ve heard that “last words” thing before…

    Paladin.. +1

  31. Gandalf Says:

    BTW’ For the record… I don’t “talk about clubs” except for my distaste for the IO and Cossacks. Obviously I know ZERO about their business. I never gave JP any “advice”…except maybe to NOT do what that stupid Trump is doing… I’m sure he knew that. I was drawn here by the Twin Peaks injustice and strayed just a few times. For 3 years I “Trolled” the Locals for the Waco 177 because it was the right thing to do. TP’s is either done or never will be done.
    The “real” don’t comment or Troll. I did so because they won’t.
    The most “useful words” (and last) are for Paladin. SUCK MY FUCKING DICK!

    “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”


  33. Gandalf Says:

    @ Paladin- Adios

  34. Paladin Says:

    @ Gandalf;

    As hard as this might be to grasp, Trump is not at the bottom of your imagined conspiracies. Nor does Trump give a shit one way or the other about Pike or the Bandidos. Trump’s fight is with people further up the food chain.

    If you have a suggestion for Pike, I’m sure your proclaimed girlfriend (Paula Carroll Swann) can get you his home phone number and address so you can contact him directly. I’m sure Pike would be absolutely thunderstruck by your wisdom and insight.

    You seem to throw a lot of names around and have an awful lot to say about clubs and people you don’t know and know nothing about, especially given the fact that you don’t ride, own a motorcycle, or are a member of an MC. The expression: “Speak useful words or be silent” might be something you should take to heart.


  35. FF Says:

    Gandalf go suck Obama’s tootsie roll

  36. Gandalf Says:

    @JWC 177 mostly innocent Americans arrested, 1 mil bail… slandered by the FBI instigated “Fake News” and Trump crying about A FISA warrant and His Lawyer being raided. As if it’s a 1st. BS! If Jeff Pike is convicted Trump will use that headline to show he doesn’t think “all” the FBI is bad… and How He did what He promised to do. “Stop International Drug Cartels”. He might even say the Waco word, “Twin Peaks”. If you think Trump would support Jeff Pike and call out the Feds on Operation Texas rocker and the Bandido “Witch Hunt” you must be outside your mind. I hope and pray JPike & Co are not convicted… and Trumps slamming the FBI will help Pike’s jurors doubt their tactics. That’s good. But mark my words… If the Feds convict Pike & Co Trump will be taking a Victory lap. “Mission Accomplished”

  37. James W Crawford Says:

    Re Gandolf,

    Don’t be to presumptive about President Trump. He not only has a very personal score to settle with the FBI, he actually is beginning to understand how LEOs can go rogue. If Trump prevails, he will neuter the FBI. Even if the FBI is not disbanded, their budget will be cut or sequestered. Trump might issue an executive order that prohibits FBI agents from being armed, on duty or off. Might even see a classic, Roman decimation of the agency.

  38. Gandalf Says:

    @ Filburt… I guess Reyna and Clinton have about the same relationship with the Feds. Cozy. So far. I try not to concern myself with people NOT charged with a crime as much as innocents who are charged with a crime. Charges against the 177 and Pike seem more important than Reyna getting a pass. Obviously Reyna, Clinton and Trump need to be charged with crimes. IMHO.

  39. Gandalf Says:

    What I was saying is that Sonny Barger has as much to do with Pikes problems as Clinton’s Emails has to do with Trumps. Yes RT… Nothing. ZERO.

    I was also saying the Feds do what they do to Pike and Trump the same. Cheat.
    I was also saying Trump don’t say shit about the BS when others are being fucked. Only when it is him.
    I was also saying that Trump would claim HIS victory if Pike was convicted. Get as much press as possible.
    Kinda ironic.

    FINNALY… I was saying Trump is a stupid defendant and should STFU on Twitter. Sarcastically saying Pike should try the “Trump Defense” Shout “Witch Hunt” and “Fake news” … piss of the Prosecutor… claim He is a target, Yadda yadda yadda.
    My Post was more about Federal Prosecutions, Alphabet tactics, How to be a defendant, and How Politicians would use a MC Headline in 1 breath then cry about their own unjust prosecution in the next.

    Have a great day.


  41. oldskewl Says:

    @ Concerned Citizen. Yes, the country is divided politically but MC’s have enough on their plate as it is. Fighting BS for all sides of the alphabet agencies that the President hasn’t ever mentioned. Hell, the President is fighting them himself, guilty or not, not for me to decide I’m just saying we have enough on here without getting into politics.
    The saloon is open for the kind of commentary. If I’m out of line then let me know, I’m just sick and tired of hearing about Trump and someones beliefs on his crimes or innocence.
    To rebel, I’m sorry for even taking up the space on your server. Hitting the ads now.

  42. Concerned Citizen Says:

    @Gandalf has a great point tho but damn alot of yall are real sensitve about your political beliefs sheesh but i mean the way I see it is you can support trump or any elected official and say fuck the feds isnt that kind of hypocritical? If you support one you support them all since they all work together in one way or another(Executive,Legislative, and Judicial) but thats the end of the political discussion cause im sure there will be someone to tell me how wrong or stupid I am lol. On to the real business you would think the jurors would have enough common knowledge to know when theyre being fed shit and the word of rats who are trying to save themselves from doing time holds as much merit as a tweaker swearing he’s telling the truth I mean shit just cause a man has a shiny piece of copper and works for the government doesnt mean he’s right or doing his job but again it is Texas and they have a special way of loving their law enforcement down there. Pike and Portillio are in my prayers I hope they come out of this unscathed or a unscathed as you can come out of a sitiuation. By the way when does that fat fuck reyna go to trial for being the miserable piece of shit he is?

  43. RT Says:

    Explain to me what Sonny has to do with anything that goes on in Texas!

  44. oldskewl Says:

    Had no idea WC was wearing a Texas bottom rocker until just now.


  45. oldskewl Says:

    @ Gandalf.. Do everyone a favor and keep your political opinion out of this and any discussion that doesn’t reflect politics. This isn’t the huffington post or where ever it is you hang out when your not here commenting on clubs.


  46. Q Says:

    “Not the 99”, not every support club gets the Texas rocker, just an FYI. It seems like the Alphabet Organizations are searching for lies from Confidential informants to save their own skin, kind of ironic? Police withholding information, even though every other agency deems the Red and Gold nation as a public menace, don’t you think that would be withholding information and denying public safety? No precautions except for an abundance of M4’s, Dogs, and Gang Task force on standby…. Let that sink in. The cops gave themselves enough rope to hang themselves in, lets just hope the lawyers can sort this “legal talk” out

  47. Filburt Says:

    And how would describe Crooked Killery clinton relationship with the feds?

  48. Gandalf Says:

    I got a suggestion for Jeff Pike. Open a Twitter account and start yelling “Witch Hunt”… “No Collusion” “The prosecutor is a Slimeball” “WTF about Sonny Barger?” LOL
    Isn’t it Ironic that Trump crys about “The Feds” when the Feds have been doing this shit to MCs for years. LOL
    Will it be Ironic when Trumps hails the heros in the FBI and holds Pikes convicted head up to show his “real” support to the FBI for the “destruction of the Notorious International drug cartel known as the Bandidos.” (U know… the Twin Peaks guys). LOL. What a fucking dick. The Feds got 100xs the evidence on Trumps ass… than on Pikes. Trumps bitching about a FISA court when Reyna (and the FBI) can get a tap on a MC by sneezing on a piece of paper and handing it to the judge. What a fucking crook of shit!

  49. Trebor Says:

    Geeez seems the whole case is based on the words of pieces of shit who were busted for dealing drugs and were offered sweetheart deals if they agreed to testify against Brothers who they once pledged Love,Loyalty and Respect to.If there really was something there you’d think it would come out.Instead tbey count on backstabbers weasels and snitches to uphold the law

  50. Not the 99 Says:

    Right about the same time, all support clubs got state bottom rockers.
