Abel Reyna Is Watching You

Lame duck District Attorney Abel Reyna continues his personal war against members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club who attended the Confederation of Club’s and Independents meeting at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17, 2015.

Approximately 70 members of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club and two Cossacks support clubs attended the meeting with the intention of intimidating members of the Bandidos, members of clubs that were friendly with the Bandidos and motorcycle enthusiasts who were not affiliated with any club. Multiple Cossacks in attendance at the event and Cossacks who were not at the event explained to police and the press that they considered the Confederation to be a Bandidos racket and considered Waco to be Cossacks territory which Bandidos and their sympathizers were forbidden to visit. Nine people were murdered and an unknown number of people, probably 18, were injured when the Cossacks attacked a small pack of Bandidos and Bandidos supporters as they rode into the Twin Peaks parking lot.
The aftermath was cruel, unconstitutional and represented a mockery of traditional American values. One hundred seventy-seven people were arrested and held on million dollar bonds. Local, state and federal officials seized control of the news narrative and a massive and illegal cover up ensued. The cover up included selective prosecution.

It continues today.

August 9 Warrant

On August 9, an investigator with the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office named John Bowman (photo below) applied for a search warrant to clandestinely seize the Facebook records of ten Bandidos who are currently under indictment for riot. The legality of that indictment is in dispute. The indictment is probably illegal and will probably stand anyway. The warrant also authorizes the search of the all Facebook records for one of the Bandidos wife.

The Bandidos are Richard Cantu, Tom Modesto Mendez, Christopher Jacob Carrizal, Marshall Mitchell, Carl Dogger, Jerry Pierson, Marcus Pilkington, Glenn Walker, Ray Allen and Reginald Weathers. Bowman also wants to rummage through the private portions of Cinderella Weathers’ Facebook page.

The warrant was issued by 74th District Judge Gary Coley Jr. (photo below).

Cole also issued an “Order Prohibiting Disclosure.” The order states, “Facebook, Inc. shall not provide notification to any person, including the subscriber or customer whom the requested materials relate, of the existence of the search warrant for a period of one hundred eighty (180) days from the date of this order.”

Shhh

Facebook cannot inform the subscribers of the warrant before February 5, 2019.

The stated objective of the secret is to find a reason to revoke the targets’ bail and incarcerate them until after they are found innocent at trail.

So far, only one Twin Peaks defendant has been tried. Cristopher Jacob Carrizal’s trial last year ended with a hund jury. Recently, Judge Ralph Strother announced he would not try any Twin Peaks defendants until after Reyna leaves office next January. The warrant issued last month seems like a last gasp attempt by Reyna to punish these defendants for something.

Gang Expert

In his application for a search warrant, Bowman describes himself as an expert at “working with gangs and gang members, and…aware that gang members and other persons involved in criminal activity will often use social media to record. document, and advertise in furtherance of their criminal activities, as well as use the ‘back channels’ of these networks to communicate with one another.” He boasts that he “has been certified as an expert witness in State District Court, Federal Court, and Federal Magistrates Court on the topic of gangs and their criminal enterprises.” He “has instructed officers across the State of Tcxas, the United States and Europe, on gang awareness and investigations.” And he “is the Secretary for the Texas Gang Investigators’ Association and as a result of this association receives annual training on gang investigations and intelligence.”

The depth and breath of the information the warrant seeks is chilling. It is calculated to bypass any “security settings” the targeted Facebook users may have chosen and to gain access to information about the named users and others who may have had contact with them on Facebook.

Possible Crimes

Bowman seeks evidence that his targets may have violated their bond conditions. Those conditions forbid:

“Directly or indirectly communicating with or attempting to communicate with known Gang members, including member and/or associates of ANY Motorcyole Clubs or go within sight of their residences, schools, churches, or places of employment.

“The use of narcotics, barbiturates, habit forming drugs, or any controlled substance as defined in the laws of the State of Texas

“ Consumption of alcoholic beverages

“Directly or indirectly communicating with or attempt to communicate with potential witnesses in this case”

And, “Owning a firearm, illegal knife, club. or prohibited weapon”

Cyber Strip Search

The warrant orders Facebook to disclose for each user account since July 1, 2006:

“All contact information, including full name, user identification number, birthdate, contact email addresses, physical address (including city, state, and zip code), telephone number, screen names, websites, and other personal identifiers.”

“All videos uploaded by that user lD and all videos uploaded by any user that have that user tagged in them.”

“All photoprints, including all photos uploaded by that user lD and all photos uploaded by any user that have that user tagged in them.”

“All neoprints, including profile contact information, mini-feed information, status updates; links to videos. photographs. articles, and other items, notes, wall postings, friend lists, including the friends’ Facebook user identification numbers, groups and networks of which the user is a member, including the groups’ Facebook group identification numbers, future and past event postings, rejected ‘Friend’ requests; comments; gifts; pokes; tags; and information about the users’ access and use of Facebook applications.”

“All other communications and messages made or received by the user, including all private messages and pending ‘Friend’ requests.”

“All IP (internet protocol address) logs, including all records of the IP addresses that logged into the account.”

“Any and all locations listed, checked into, and or locations where subject was tagged or marked as ‘shown to be with.’”

“All information about the user’s access and use of Facebook Marketplace.”

“The length of service (including start date), the types of service utilized by the user, and the means and source of any payments associated with the service (including any credit card or bank account number).”

“All privacy settings and other account settings.”

“All records pertaining to communications between Facebook and any person regarding the user or the user’s Facebook account, including contacts with support services and records of actions.”

    It’s amazing that a whole town/district/whatever’s judicial system, the *whole* system, can be so corrupt, and the rest of the country’s judicial system just turn a blind eye to it.

    The government might as well just straight out tell We the Peons, that it’s going to do as it pleases and fuck the Constitution. Might as well tell We the Peons, that they’re going to join the Australian government and follow their ways.

    Fuck Waco, fuck that ‘investigator’ faggot, fuck the judges in this whole corrupt scenario, and fuck all the persecutors.

    Tree. Rope. The Waco Corrupt. Some assembly required.

  2. James W Crawford Says:

    Re Dazed.

    Of course Cassie Gotro is worthy of my utmost respect because she proved herself to be an extremely capable attorney who was confronted by a corrupt prosecutor and court. I was simply making the humorous observation that Ms Gotro has an impressive pair of breasts as well as brains. I made similar observations about Governor Palin when I enthusiastically voted for her in 2008. Are you and others posting on this thread so sexist that you presume that a woman’s IQ is inversely proportional to her bra size?

  3. Sieg Says:

    Cassie Gotro got suspended?

    Damn…I wouldn’t trust a criminal lawyer who had never been suspended. It can be, literally, for anything, and it sure nuff doesn’t mean the person suspended is leaving the job.

    Insane Throttle? That’s a circle-jerk. All the so-called “contributors” are the same guy.

    @James W Crawford piss off Douschebag..Gotro did the best she could with the cards She was dealt with.With out Her He would be prob sitting in a cell..FOESAD.

  5. freebird Says:

    @ Old & Jaded

    With regard to Ms Gotro…….

    My hats off to her! Versed in Labor Law we had it so easy…..

    IMHO she fought the devil with 1 arm tied behind her back

    Her decision from what I have seen tells me she had an awaking from the truth, justice and the American way vision.

    It’s a dark place, but there is light on the other side

  6. James W Crawford Says:

    Re Steel,

    I have no idea if Ms Gotro is giving up on being an attorney or just got behind on her dues.

    I think that she proved herself capable if unconventional for Jake.

    I am just making the humorous observation that Ms Gotro could be successful as a stripper or a waitress at a Breastaurant. Since the CoC was having their meeting at the Twin Peaks when LE staged their massacre, I find it odd and amusing that people on this site are offended by my jesting.

  7. 31st Says:

    Gordo, you seem like a decent fellow, but… you keep posting youtube links to insane throttle.

    I get about a minute into Maceracci’s shit and then I tune it out.

    The guy is clearly riding DCD’s jock, and now so are you.

    It’s undignified, ok? Stop it. Or at least, tell everybody “this is insane throttle click bait”.

  8. Patty Says:

    Wow … I think WACO should be spelled WACKO!

    I am wondering if the ACPO will use Mr. Bowman as an expert in the future … lol

  9. Old & Jaded Says:

    So now the game is to lock people up for violating conditions of release just to harass the defendants and their families some more before the cases are dismissed? Appears to be a continued waste of tax payer money.

    As an aside, those released can’t even have a beer? Was anyone charged with being drunk in public? I thought there had to be a nexus between conditions of release to the offense. Maybe I’m wrong…

    Re Ms. Gotro, she worked her ass off and stood up to those good ole boys like no one else did. A cheap shot to suggest she work at a “Breastaurant.” In my opinion, she’s earned respect.

  10. Gordo Says:

    Judge issues the warrant based on what??
    Reaonable suspicion is not probable cause
    Ya need probable cause to issue a search warrant ie evidence of a crime not a fishing expedition??

    Not a Facebook user myself

    Reason I follow Rebel’s blog is because was riding my new bagger stateside that May when the Twin Peaks massacre happened

    Lots of coverage stateside at the time

    Not much north of the 49th so found Rebels blog when searching for the Twin Peaks Peaks massacre

    this is the only place I comment

    Seems ya just have to have a suspicion to get a warrant issued by a judge and not probable cause

    That’s my 2 cents

    Thx for update Rebel

  11. Steel Says:

    Ms Gotro suspended for not paying her dues. Wow, such a heinous act. Catches up her dues and she’s back lawyering again. You’re an idiot JamesCrawford. I got suspended from my trade union once because my dues were unpaid for too long due to traveling for work. Paid them up, back in business. It’s not a big deal.

    What is a big deal is the travesty of justice going in Waco. The rights of those charged but not tried being trampled in hopes of railroading them by the Texas judicial system.

    Respects

  12. James W Crawford Says:

    Re Trebor,

    Not being a shithead.

    Just acknowledging the reality that in addition to being an unconventional but extremely effective attorney, Ms Gotro has the attributes to be very successful in these alternative careers. She is definately hotter than most of the anorexic skanks who dance at biker bars.

  13. Trebor Says:

    @James Crawford quit being a shithead.Why would you wish something like that on Miss Gotro?Good bad or indifferent she did her best.All anyone can expect from their Lawyer especially the way the deck was stacked and manipulated by the Prosecution

  14. James W Crawford Says:

    Thank you Filbert for the heads up regarding Cassie Gotro: https://www.kwtx.com/content/news/Law-license-of-former-Twin-Peaks-attorney-temporarily-suspended-493617641.html

    Since it appears that Ms Gotro is no longer interested in practicing law, perhaps she will have a new career as a waitress at a Twin Peaks or Hooters Breasturant, or better yet as a dancer at a strip bar?

  15. Snow Says:

    I know, I know, everybody does it. IMO it is beyond ignorant to be putting your business out on line, period. Giving yuppie geeks your personal info is stupid, shut that shit down and go do a face to face with people you know is straight up.
    Fuck wacko, fuck the assholes with a barb wire fence. Fuck all that dumb shit.

    @ Sieg

    I believe Rights are now part of the twilight Rebel wrote about…..

    For those who read the Waco Trib article about the goals of the incoming DA would have noticed he showed his hand when he picked up his cards

    He’s stacked with jokers…..

  21. Birdman Says:

    @ Filburt,
    Respect, but politics isn’t the issue. Is Reyna a dem or a rep.
    Doesn’t matter, they will all try fuck us.
    In the old days, when you needed to talk to someone you got on
    your bike and went to talk face to face. We didn’t write anything
    down because it was considered risky. Sure, texting and facebook are easier, but easy leads to jail.
    Just sayin’

    What a bunch of bullshit. Facebook shares and sells every member of their sites information, that is how they make their money besides ads and what not is by selling their subscribers information, and anyone in an MC sure the fuck would know not to say anything on Facebook about club business, you’d have to dense to do that considering Facebook sells and harvest your information and posts and will turn your info over to law enforcement with a warrant with no issues.

    This sounds like a fishing expedition and old uncle Reyna is still sore about Jake Casie kicking his ass in court. Reyna antics are nothing more than a desperate attempt at getting some attention because he is nothing but a fuck to people after blowing the Carrizal trial and charging a 177 people that will leave Waco and the citizens of Texas in debt for years and years when the civil and wrongful death suits start getting settled.

    Fuck Reyna!

    Have you ever heard of Comey, Mueller, Rosentein, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Orh, Buckwheat obama, Crooked Killary, Valerie Jarrett, Susan Rice, Eric Holder, Loretta Lynch, John Kerry, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid and Maxine”low IQ” Waters? They are the authors of “Fuck the Constitution “!

  24. Mark Says:

    Hi Rebel,
    The part of Waco that I simply don’t get is the taxpayers that sit back and say or do nothing whatsoever.

  25. Carey Says:

    Well it said it in the words of who ever that the cossack started the
    Whole damn thing buy attacking the Bandidos.Them an the cops killed peoplw not the Bandidos. That goes to show you everyday people the government covers up everything they can to make the 1% clubs look bad. The 1%er’s are the men who will do what ever they can to help you out. All they want is respect.These men don’t play little games of slap ass. Be real an you will go a long way in life. The government wants you to believe all they do is sell drugs an rob an rape an steal from people, well that is not true.They do things the way a man should face to face. They don’t get into clubs an make shit up so the government can bust them , only the government people do that. They start shit so they can bust them. I have seen it a lot of times, they have people do things they would not do , an inreturn tell that person to just keep it quit so as they say so we can make more money. An as a man looking to make money to keep his family from having to need does it,Only to make life easyer for his wife an kids. Then they bust him an put all the blame on him.

    I keep forgetting the R&G was the only club there that day……

    The ambush that never ended

  27. Rebel Says:

    Dear Mark,

    Yes this is an illegal fishing expedition. It was preceded by countless illegalities in this case including, but hardly limited to, false imprisonment, violation of due process, obstruction of justice, destruction of evidence, manslaughter and perjury. Off the top of my head in about ten seconds. What part of Waco can you possibly not get?

    Rebel

  28. Rebel Says:

    Dear BaddGuye,

    Sorry. You are wrong. It is a valid state warrant. It happens all the time.

    From Facebook:
    We disclose account records solely in accordance with our terms of service and applicable law, including the federal Stored Communications Act (“SCA”), 18 U.S.C. Sections 2701-2712. Under U.S. law:

    A valid subpoena issued in connection with an official criminal investigation is required to compel the disclosure of basic subscriber records (defined in 18 U.S.C. Section 2703(c)(2)), which may include: name, length of service, credit card information, email address(es), and a recent login/logout IP address(es), if available.
    A court order issued under 18 U.S.C. Section 2703(d) is required to compel the disclosure of certain records or other information pertaining to the account, not including contents of communications, which may include message headers and IP addresses, in addition to the basic subscriber records identified above.
    A search warrant issued under the procedures described in the Federal Rules of Criminal Procedure or equivalent state warrant procedures upon a showing of probable cause is required to compel the disclosure of the stored contents of any account, which may include messages, photos, videos, timeline posts, and location information.
    We interpret the national security letter provision as applied to Facebook to require the production of only 2 categories of information: name and length of service.

    Rebel

  29. Mark Says:

    This is an illegal fishing expedition and here’s why. The warrant has to have some sort of crime noted and having been committed with X using their Facebook service, account. A judge to sign off on a warrant needs to be presented with more than, they may have violated their bail agreement. If this jackoff asking for the warrant, had proof of crimes having been committed, then you can bet that person would have been taking into custody, period.
    This is a huge case of civil rights violations and is only going to dig the taxpayers of Shithole County in deeper for more money.
    Follow this because it’s very important. There is already case history that laws protecting property owners from tax incresses outside of strict ways to raise property taxes, are meaningless against civil rights jury awards. Meaning the taxpayers in Shithole County are going to get their asses handed to them. Their property value is going to go into the basement because of the sky high property taxes to pay for the lawsuits over the TP cluster fuck. Watch and see but seemingly the people with the power could care less how much deeper they dig the hole the taxpayers are going to be put into.

  30. BaddGuye Says:

    If I am reading this correctly, this is a state issued warrant, and since Facebook is NOT a Texas based entity, the warrant means nothing. Only a Federal issued Warrant could achieve the results they are looking for. Unless Facebook just gives up the info freely.

  31. stroker Says:

    What’s “chilling” about this, is what it portends for the rest of America. If allowed to proceed, all 1st amendment rights are gone. Not just for the above poor bastards awaiting acquittal, but for the rest of America! This is LE running rough-shod over our rights, our privacy, our LIVES…..all with the tacit approval of John Q. Public!
    Why? Cuz John Q. Public doesn’t like bikers! Anything that LE wants to throw at us, the Public is more than willing to accept, perhaps not realizing that what happens to us may affect all of America if left un-challenged.
    Absolutely SUX!

    That Reyna is a real piece of work. The coke must be getting to him. Somebody needs to tell him that the game is over.
