Skip to comments.UPDATE: Waco “Twin Peaks” Shootout – All Charges Dropped, Not a Single Successful Prosecution…
Posted on 04/02/2019 9:16:00 PM PDT by Paladin2
After four years of seriously sketchy prosecutorial conduct, likely trying to cover up the number of people killed by police and SWAT units as they shot into the crowd, the McLennen county district attorney has dropped all charges against the bikers involved in the Waco Twin Peaks brawl.

Er, so what about the people they made dead?
Total lack of millisecond by millisecond timeline of who kilt or injured who.
It was a trap.
This is an extraordinary case - and an extraordinary cover up, if you ask me.
I remember people going nuts when I questioned the measures taken by the gods in blue.
These were state sanctioned executions.
A lot of lives destroyed behind the bars too as many weren’t let out for a very long time and it was like a third world court was in charge.
So tell me, can everything be swept underneath a rug and forgotten? No, someone must answer for this usurpation and denial of constitutional rights. I am not holding my breath on this one.
Hey, gecko, I remember you and your long zotted motor mouth, know it all twin, guaranteeing everyone that all these guys were “going down”. Are you at least man enough to admit now that you are a know nothing loud mouth?
Have your property taxes gone up yet? You all are going to owe these people a crap load of money.
Do you think the “authorities” who caused all of this carnage should be in jail, maybe some on Texas death row?
I wouldn’t use the word cover-up. You simply had marginal cops, prosecutors, and judges...who had to handle a large assortment of cases beyond their comprehension and ability.
I do think that law schools ought to develop an entire course around the ‘Twin Peaks’ episode and talk about the need to assess complex cases early on, and have a written plan or list of objectives.
The sad thing here....the amount of money that just dissolved away to support the cases.
The sad thing is the under cover cops who egged the Cossacks on that sparked the whole thing.
That people getting murdered by trigger-happy cops and nobody being held to account for it thing? That’s the coverup.
” Calling Janet Reno, Calling Janet Reno ...”
Anyone write a definitive account of what happened here?
Government sttacks people. Blames everyone even remotely connected denies bail, due process, destroying lives and families. Government hides evidence colluded gets pay raises then pretends its someone elses fault.
How did I do?
So eloquently and thoughtfully written by some of the greatest minds our country has known.
I’m sure she’s proud
Curious why this is in Chat instead of News.
WOW MileHi, you really unloaded on this feckless redneck, and deservedly so. He always had his mouth engaged but his brain was in neutral. I imagine after reading your post, he’s out in search of a snowbank into which he is looking to “insert his butt!” He who laughs last, last best! You made my day. Now, if only the bikers, through lawsuits claiming denial of their Constitutional Rights, end up owning Whacko, and maybe even McLennan County my day will really be complete. It would be too much to hope for that some of the LEOs end up doing time. I used to think that Austin was the bunghole of Texas, but I now realize that it’s really Whacko!
Let the civil suits begin!
Some people are NEVER happy.
I survey all categories and find the categories to be irrelevant for my purposes.
Hilarious comment as the usual complaint is: “Should be in Chat”.
Note that it is also in other categories, not just “Chat”...
