  • Waco Is Suppressing Evidence That Could Clear Innocent Bikers

    The Atlantic ^ | 21 Jul 2015 | CONOR FRIEDERSDORF
    The city is fighting to keep videos of the May shootout at the Twin Peaks restaurant out of the press, and still hasn’t confirmed how many victims were shot by police. Why is Waco, Texas, fighting to suppress multiple videos of the shootout that killed nine bikers at the Twin Peaks restaurant on May 17? Why are some attorneys in the case now prohibited from talking to the press? And why haven’t Waco officials revealed how many of the nine victims were killed by bullets from police officers’ guns?

    Vanity post here, which I rarely do... Who is going to Sturgis this year? With well over a million attendees expected in Sturgis this year for the 75th anniversary of the Sturgis Rally, I can only imagine there will be a number of Freepers present. I'd like to commence a thread for this, and facilitate some in person meetings. It would be a pleasure.

    snip Paul Looney, a lawyer for three of those arrested, said that two of them — a couple, William and Morgan Jane English — were close enough to the shooting to only hear it, but that they had seen, and done, nothing illegal. “They had barely gotten onto the property,” Mr. Looney said. “In this country, we have constitutional protections against that kind of a sweep. It’s the most un-American activity I’ve seen on American soil.”

Guilty of being destroyers of civilization Leftists are upset about what they view as a double standard with respect to the Baltimore/Ferguson affair and the recent Waco gang shootout. They’re right, too—there sure is a double standard. And, as usual, it’s their own. Consider, for example, an Associated Press piece by one Jesse J.

An Associated Press review of Texas court records and a database maintained by the state department of public safety turned up no criminal history in Texas for Jesus Delgado Rodriguez, 65, of New Braunfels.

What started as a physical fight in the bathroom spilled out into the bar and rapidly escalated to involve chains, clubs, knives and gunfire across Twin Peaks Bar and Grill in Waco, local media reports. Diners, including young children, scrambled and many took shelter in the freezer as hundreds of gang members ran rampage around the booths, according to KXXV.

A week after a rampaging motorcycle gang’s stunning caught-on-video attack on an Internet exec and his family, Manhattan prosecutors have released the first blow-by-blow account based on newly-surfaced cell phone camera footage and photos. As many as six bikers preyed on victim dad Alexian Lien, kicking him in the head even as he tried to crawl to safety, prosecutors said as the first of the accused fist-swingers, Robert Sims, 35, of Brooklyn, was arraigned...

See https://www.facebook.com/events/588094987901164/?ref=3 for details.  This is an open group so you don't need a Facebook account to view it. Note that the group has numerous hostile posts by muslims. Recent news articles such as the one at USNews.com state that the "Million Muslim March" has been re-named to "Million American March Against Fear".  However, I'm sure we all know about "Taqiyya", the allowed, deliberate lying and misleading by muslims to non-muslims (and even other muslims under certain circumstances).The march is all about islamic power...

    A BIKER has appealed after losing his licence when speed cameras clocked him riding at an impossible 383 mph. Motorbike mad Paolo Turina of Cernusco Lombardone, Italy - who also copped a £200 fine - claims the speed camera was clearly so defective the charge should never have been brought. The 26-year-old said: "If I could go that fast I'd enter my bike in the MotoGP world championships. What did they think they were clocking - a jet fighter?" Police claim the camera was working perfectly but bungling staff botched the charge paperwork, as reported in the Austrian Times.

Even experienced riders can be wobbly on an unfamiliar bike, according to a recent study from the Progressive Group of Insurance Cos., a motorcycle insurer. Progressive reviewed nearly 2 million motorcycle insurance policies over a five-year period and found that riders who switched to different types of bikes were nearly 70% more likely to crash than riders who kept the same bike. The study also found that riders of cruiser bikes, such as Harley-Davidsons, who switched to high-performance sport bikes like Suzuki GSXRs were 3 1/2...

    My fellow Freepers: I need your help! As many of you already know, I ran for Congress in New York’s 12th CD in 2004. As part of the experience, I became one of the principal subjects of a documentary being filmed on the Republican National Convention being held in the city that year. As a result, I had a camera follow me around during my campaigning in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan, to the convention at Madison Square Garden, to various meetings and events of our NY Young Republican Club, to my uncle’s house in Staten Island, and even to my...

    Wearing vests covered in military patches, a band of motorcyclists rolls around the country from one soldier's funeral to another, cheering respectfully to overshadow jeers from church protesters. They call themselves the Patriot Guard Riders, and they are more than 5,000 strong, forming to counter anti-gay protests held by the Rev. Fred Phelps at military funerals. Phelps believes American deaths in Iraq are divine punishment for a country that he says harbors homosexuals. His protesters carry signs thanking God for so-called IEDs - explosives that are a major killer of soldiers in Iraq. The bikers shield the families of dead...

    MARINE CORPS BASE HAWAII, KANEOHE BAY, Hawaii (Nov. 18, 2005) -- Every Marine who has ever served has made some type of sacrifice in order to wear the “Eagle, Globe and Anchor,” but these sacrifices aren’t always paid in the form of sweat from countless humps and physical training sessions, neither are they from the shedding of blood on the battlefield, nor from the feelings of loneliness during long separations from family and friends while deployed. Sometimes the sacrifices made are simply the other opportunities that were passed up in order to join the Corps. Still, it can be argued...

    KENTWOOD IN THE PINES – An airborne wild turkey struck a motorcyclist on state Route 79 yesterday. Two turkeys were walking across southbound Route 79 near Royal Drive about 11:15 a.m., said Officer Brian Pennings of the California Highway Patrol. One turkey began to fly and struck a southbound motorcyclist in the chest. The impact caused the rider of the 2001 Harley Davidson Softail to cross into the northbound lanes and go into an embankment. The 56-year-old man hit a manzanita bush and rolled over twice. He was thrown from the motorcycle and suffered abrasions to the right side of...

    A sad tale unraveled in Myrtle Beach, S.C. recently, one that the NAACP ought to regard as a cautionary one. For the past five years, the nation’s foremost civil rights organization has boycotted South Carolina for putting the Confederate battle flag -– a flag that white Southerners claim is about heritage but one that most black people know is really about hate -- in a place of honor on the statehouse grounds. And throughout that time, many groups, including the powerful National Collegiate Athletic Association, have abided by it. But three weeks ago, a group of black people –- people...

    SOMERVILLE, N.J. Somerset County authorities say two members of the Pagans motorcycle gang shot and killed a man because he was wearing a Hells Angels T-shirt.

    NOVATO, Calif. (AP) - A Kern County man who has spent more than 17 years on death row for killing his girlfriend and her 14-year-old son died Wednesday of complications from cancer, prison officials said. Hells Angel motorcyclist Robert Garceau was convicted for the 1984 stabbing deaths of girlfriend Maureen Bautista and her son, Telesforo Bautista, both of North Hollywood. According to trial testimony, Garceau buried the bodies in cement in the backyard of a fellow drug dealer's house in San Luis Obispo County and claimed that his drug-dealing friends, not him, killed the two. He killed them in Bakersfield,...

    MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (AP) -- People across the United States are shaking their heads over the kid ticketed for allegedly riding his motorcycle at 205 mph -- some out of disapproval, others because they doubt he went that fast.

State Patrol pilot Al Loney, a 27-year veteran, and his superiors stand by...

    Al Loney couldn't believe his stopwatch. The Minnesota State Patrol pilot had been flying near Wabasha on Saturday afternoon, watching a pair of motorcycles racing each other along U.S. 61. When one of the bikes accelerated dramatically, Loney was ready — clicking his stopwatch when the cycle reached a white marker painted on the roadside.
