    WACO, Tex. — One year ago Tuesday, law enforcement officials here broke up one of the biggest and deadliest clashes of motorcycle gangs in the country. Gunfire erupted outside a Twin Peaks restaurant at a meeting of a regional coalition of motorcycle clubs after an altercation between two rival groups, the Bandidos and the Cossacks. So many bikers were arrested — nearly 200 — that officials used the Waco Convention Center for initial processing. Police have said that the bikers, who attacked one another and fired on police officers, were part of “a gang-oriented criminal element” that had brought a...

Among those still facing charges are a Bandidos chaplain and a husband and wife. Officials also found probable cause against Bandidos members Marcus Pilkington, 36, and Reginald Weathers, 43, who ascertain they are “being illegally confined” and authorities lack sufficient...

Lewis, 48, was on trial for stabbing Timothy Shayne Satterwhite, who is a member of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club. It's all related to a fight in the Logan's Roadhouse parking lot in November of 2013. Wednesday afternoon Lewis took the stand in his own defense. He said he never stabbed anyone. A fellow Bandido MC member, Wesley Mason, testified he stabbed Satterwhite and another member of the Cossacks...

A couple of pieces of evidence became generally available this weekend that shine a little light into this black hole of deceit.

    Police officers and outlaw biker gangs often stand on common ground. Both attract the young and adventurous who value order, discipline and brotherhood. And on weekends tens of thousands of cops routinely trade their cruisers and badges for choppers and club colors. The bond doesn't mean a free pass for criminal motorcycle gangs, but even some within law enforcement worry that too many officers believe bikers are just misunderstood Robin Hoods. And empathy from officers who emulate or even aspire to the outlaw life can put police or the public at risk, gang experts warn.

    As more bikers are released from McLennan County Jail, the accounts of what led up to the deadly shootout at Twin Peaks come into sharper conflict with each other. Police and prosecutors have painted the May 17 shooting as a clash of rival “gangs” — primarily the Bandidos and Cossacks motorcycle clubs — that were armed and prepared to settle scores in a public place. Waco police have said more than 300 weapons found at the scene show there was “criminal intent” among the 177 who were jailed in the immediate aftermath of the shooting.“(It) indicates to the public that...

    Thousands of bikers are expected to gather this weekend for an "All For One" rally in front of the McLennan County Courthouse. Most places in downtown Waco say will be open on Sunday. Most did not want to speak to us on camera; saying if you side with the community, the bikers will hate you and if you side with the bikers, the community will hate you. But, they all say everyone will be welcome. Mobile food vendor George Gaylord says he sees it as a great business opportunity. In fact, he plans to park his hot dog cart right...

    WACO -- KCEN got an exclusive interview with the first bikers to speak publicly after the Twin Peaks shooting, capturing the moments right after their release from jail after being arrested for the May 17th shooting that left nine bikers dead and 18 more injured.

[...] Mr. English...

    A group of Albuquerque bikers came to 5-year-old Albuquerque girl’s rescue this week. The girl who was bullied on her way home from school got an unexpected visit by the Punishers. They’re loud, big, burly bikers dressed in black. While the men may appear dark and dangerous, the Punishers, a law enforcement motorcycle club in Albuquerque are far from it. “We are all pretty soft hearted. I’m actually a nurse,” said Punishers LE/MC Albuquerque President Norman Gonzalez. This week the group, made up of military veterans and former police officers, banded together with local self-defense group Shockwave to help a...

    WACO JUDGE AGREES TO LET MOST BIKERS GO – IF THEY SIGN A CONTRACT VOWING NOT TO SUE FOR WRONGFUL ARREST “It appears the public defenders office in McLennan County is involved in this scurrilous activity,” said Paul Looney, a Houston attorney with Looney & Conrad, P.C. “I’ve never seen anything like the lawlessness that the authorities have perpetrated on these people and now to add insult to injury they are trying to cover their own tracks in exchange for bond.”

    Recently, Texas has reclaimed its cherished position as the nation’s “epicenter of right wing-extremism” with a few specifically bizarre occurrences that epitomize exactly what “right-wing extremism” means. But now, the Texas-size extremism is spreading to Arizona and it includes Texas-style armed biker thugs, conspiracy theorists, and anti-Muslim sentiments that set Texas apart as right-wing extremist central. About a month ago anti-Muslim hate-freak Pamela Geller and her acolytes, none of whom comprehend that America is not a Christian theocracy, converged on Texas to insult and incite anger in the American Muslim community with a cartoon contest intended to mock the Muslim...
