The big Waco gravy train keeps on rolling. So far, the immediate arrest of 177 motorcycle tourists and the eventual indictment of 16 more after the Twin Peaks bloodbath in May 2015 has been a boon for Waco bail bondsmen, tow truck drivers, police officers and lawyers. Now it’s time for the McLennan County Sheriff’s […]

Trump On Asset Forfeiture
