    The shootout in Waco that killed nine motorcycle gang members began in the weeks before Christmas with a beating at a Toys for Tots event in Wise County and a murder in Fort Worth, according to law enforcement sources. The backdrop is a growing turf battle between the Bandidos – which has controlled Texas for years – and the Cossacks, a lesser-known biker gang that has been gaining power by aligning itself with Bandido rivals, the sources said. On Dec. 12, 10 Bandidos burst into Gator’s bar in Fort Worth and "without saying a word, started punching and attacking people,"...

    Waco, Texas (CNN)Texas law enforcement officials are investigating what they say are new threats against officers from biker gangs in the wake of a recent shootout in Waco. Members of the Bandidos biker gang who are in the military "are supplying the gang with grenades and C4 explosives," according to a bulletin issued Thursday by the Texas Department of Public Safety and reviewed by CNN. The bulletin warns of plots targeting high-ranking law enforcement officials and their families with car bombs. The bulletin is based on unsubstantiated information from an informant who claimed to have obtained it from Bandidos and...

    California might be ready to legalize cannabis for adults 21 and over, but some members of the Oakland community are worried it will be a job-killer for their street dealers. Support for legalization proved mixed at a public meeting of the ACLU’s Blue Ribbon Commission on Marijuana Legalization in Oakland this week. "Street-level drug dealers who are now selling to 17- to 25-year-olds could see legalization cut their market in half," said Robert Dousa. “Many of these dealers are doing it to support their families — they need to make money,” Dousa said.

    So this Waco thing has caught my interest, mostly because of all the dumb things being said about it. I’m no expert and have no direct connection to the Waco Biker shootout, nor do I have access to anything more than media reports. However, based on my experience as a patrolman, assistant active shooter instructor and soldier I’ve made a few observations and educated guesses about what happened. 1) I predict we’ll soon learn most or all of the dead bikers were shot by police officers I base this on a couple things, but the biggest one is a...

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.

It’s two hours past the government-imposed curfew on this broken city and outside its margins the unlikeliest of encounters is happening. Just two days earlier, Baltimore police put out a very different version of gang unity, issuing a memo — just hours after 25-year-old Freddie Gray’s funeral — warning that the rival gangs were planning a possible attack on cops. It put the city on edge, and as violence unfolded in the afternoon as teenagers were trapped in...

Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, City Council President Bernard (Jack) Young and even President Obama have called the protestors who burned and looted the city thugs. Councilman Carl Stokes was having none of it. He dropped the N-word in equating thug with a racist stereotype in an emotionally-charged exchange with Erin Burnett on CNN Tuesday night. "Of course it's not the right word to call our children thugs," Stokes said. "These are children who have been...

    "I'm afraid Putin will kill me," Boris Nemtsov told a Russian website on February 10. He was dead before the month was out. The charismatic opposition leader, a former deputy prime minister under Boris Yeltsin, was assassinated in the heart of Moscow on Friday night as he walked over a bridge near Red Square, only yards from the Kremlin walls. The killing, it seems clear, was a professional hit. Nemtsov was shot four times in the back by gunmen who escaped in a precisely timed getaway car, the murder unrecorded by nearby security cameras, which were mysteriously turned off — all...

    The passage of Proposition 47 by California voters in November is at least partially to blame for an uptick in Fresno crime figures, Fresno Police Chief Jerry Dyer said this week. Aggravated assault is up 9.9% in a 28-day period ending Wednesday, although it remains down 3.9% for the year in figures released by police after the department’s monthly Crime View session, in which Dyer and his command staff go over key statistics. Burglary is up by 30.7%, in the period, while it remains down by 12.8% for the year. Auto theft spiked by 12.6% but is still down by...

    Two men were killed and 13 other people, including a 15-year-old boy, were wounded since Friday in separate shootings on the city's Far South and West sides, said police.

The man was in the vehicle with a female child when someone came up to the vehicle and began shooting.

    Two major law enforcement stings targeting Southern California gangs have rocked the Los Angeles and San Diego underworld. The FBI conducted raids against two major gangs this week, arresting more than 50 gangsters and associates involved in numerous rackets, from drug trafficking to underage prostitution. Members of East LA's Big Hazard gang were rounded up Wednesday morning, while Federal officials in San Diego Thursday indicted 22 members of the Tycoons syndicate, involving members from various local street gangs. Big Hazard, aka Hazard Grande, East Los Angeles In a massive undertaking dubbed Operation Resident Evil, more than 800 law enforcement officials from various...

    Gangs appear to have grown more politically emboldened this past year, as protests have sprouted in response to police shootings of young black males. Gangs organizing with local politicians is not new, as some will point to New York’s Tammany Hall corruption in the early 20th century. Only two years ago, Chicago Magazine wrote about the “unholy alliance” between the city’s local pols and violent street gangs. New York City Councilman Jumaane Williams, a Brooklyn Democrat, tweeted that he was approached by members of the local Bloods gang about getting involved with recent protests relating to the death of Eric...

    A 3-year-old child was shot in the ankle Sunday afternoon in Liberty City, the victim of a neighborhood dispute that erupted into gunfire and had Miami police ducking for cover. Miami police said they responded to shots being fired around 3p.m., found the injured child, who got caught in the crossfire, and surrounded the building at Northwest 12th Avenue and 62nd Street, even as gun shots continued to ring out.

    Such hypocrisy and reverse-racism is breathtaking. The brutal truth is Sharpton, Holder and Obama will never address this officer’s death because he was white and because they protect the black gangs out there. Officer Kevin Quick was kidnapped and murdered by four black gang members – they belong to the Bloods street gang known as the 99 Goon Syndicate out of Los Angeles. Quick was forced to drive from ATM to ATM to get money, then he was taken out in the woods and executed as a gang initiation rite. It never really made the news and it certainly didn’t...

    That the photograph of Walter Duranty — the New York Times Moscow correspondent who deliberately whitewashed Stalin’s 1930s forced starvation of millions of Ukrainians and won the Pulitzer for it — still is on the newspaper’s wall of fame with their other prize winners is apparently no aberration. The New York Times has no moral center. In fact, it’s despicable. On November 24, they published the home address of Officer Darren Wilson. By now most of America knows who Wilson is — the Ferguson, Missouri, police officer exonerated for the murder of Michael Brown, the supposed 6′ 6″, three-hundred-pound “gentle...

    US citizens have been warned to stay away from the Mexican resort of Acapulco because of the threat from protests over the suspected murder of a group of student teachers. The American Embassy in Mexico City issued the security message which it said applied to its own staff and all US citizens. A statement released by the embassy said its personnel "have been instructed to defer non-essential travel to Acapulco, by air or land," and added that it "cautions US citizens to follow the same guidelines". The alert added that "protests and violent incidents continue in Guerrero state in response...

    As mothers in black urban areas learn that they have the right to be armed, and to protect their children and themselves, the support for gun control will continue to drop.   It was only a few years ago that police would simply confiscate any gun that they came across in a black urban area.  I heard of this practice from students and former police officers.  Many commentators have noted that the original purpose of gun control was to disarm blacks.   Building on this disregard for the second amendment, property rights, and the rule of law, "progressive" politicians pushed to...
