So now we read that an armed sheriff's office deputy stood outside, armed, and did nothing to save any of the lives of those 17 killed in Florida. Images of patric unearthed after hearing this news...

Holding aside the Patric comment, because "really?"...

While I think that shop is being very short-sighted, I like the way the police handled it.   It will be interesting to see how the business/social aspects of this play out.  Being radical and on the vanguard of an issue is (IMHO) very American, but once the point is made and the other side (whomever that is) tries to work with you, people expect some reciprocity.  Continuing to be radical for the sake of radical will eventually fail.

I did PM the moderator to consider removing those posts, but no reply.  Im sure the parties involved know better than to casually equate people with the deaths of children.

If I realized you were that sensitive I would have said something similar a while ago.   You do tend to cry about police every chance you get.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — The Texas prosecutor pursuing charges against more than a hundred motorcyclists following a 2015 shootout that left nine bikers dead was ousted by voters in a primary election Tuesday after so far failing to convict anyone for the killings.


Local authorities in Texas absurdly overreached when they attempted to prosecute dozens of people who happened to be present at the site of a May 2015 shooting melee that broke out during a meeting of motorcycle clubs at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco. Last month charges against more than a dozen of the 177 arrestees were dropped, and yesterday a judge ordered the McLennan County District Attorney's Office to stop distributing what his attorney calls "private, intimate sexual images" of former defendant Cody Ledbetter and his wife.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — One of three bikers indicted on murder charges Wednesday stemming from a chaotic 2015 shooting at a Texas restaurant is accused of killing a man who was also shot twice by police, according to ballistics evidence reviewed by The Associated Press.

History will regard this as an important lesson in how not to step out of bounds for political gain.



Twin Peaks cases unravel as 3rd anniversary arrives

Supervised by Detective J.R. Price, a 40-year veteran police investigator, police gathered photos and contact information from the bikers. They had just released a whole busload of bikers, planning to summon them later as witnesses.

That was when District Attorney Abel Reyna walked in with his assistants and an audacious new game plan. Anyone associated with a motorcycle group would be arrested as members of “criminal street gangs,” Reyna said.

No more bikers would be released, and many of the 177 arrested that night would spend the next several weeks jailed on million-dollar bonds.

It was a risky legal strategy, one that had never been tried on this scale: Throw a wide net around a complicated crime scene and charge everyone involved with engaging in organized criminal activity.

The failure of that strategy has become clear three years later, as prosecutors dismiss most of the cases, the district attorney prepares to exit and 130 bikers line up to sue McLennan County, alleging civil rights violations.

"The Twin Peaks case is like a corrupt politician looked at the Duke lacrosse case and said, 'Hold my beer. I think I can outdo Mike Nifong in the horrible-human-being-with-government-authority department'?"

“Twin Peaks cost more than I wanted to spend,” he said. “It cost my reputation, my job, it cost a lot. I was the poster child for the national media. My face was everywhere. I had never been arrested in my life, never had a parking ticket, never had a moving violation. I feel there are no winners in this thing. There are absolutely no winners. Everybody lost in this thing and people are still paying for it and suffering. And it is still not done.”

They should also be going after that ex-DA, Reyna.  He is personally responsible for most of the lies and BS surrounding this case.   Kind of a Tim Harris type clown!

I don’t share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.
