Waco “Twin Peaks” Shooting Updates: 14 Police Officers Fired “thousands of rounds” on 200 Bikers Killing 9, Wounding 18 – Two Thirds Of Those Arrested Had No Prior Criminal History…

IRONY – The death toll from the “Twin Peaks” shootout was greater than the total number of homicides Waco police investigated in all of 2014 – And all of the “Twin Peaks” dead were shot by police.

waco 8Previously Waco Police Spokesman W. Patrick Swanton stated 22 members of law enforcement were present prior to the outbreak of the shooting.  Including 10 members of the Waco SWAT unit, 2 sergeants, 1 rookie, the Asst. Police Chief and 4 state troopers.

Newly released information today includes the Waco Police stating 14 Waco PD officers were involved in firing shots which killed 9 bike club members and wounded 18 more.

The 14 officers involved in the gun battle are all now on administrative leave, which is standard protocol in officer-involved shootings, Swanton said. (link)

In addition Sgt Swanton previously stated that all of the 170 arrested bikers were known “criminal gang members”.  However, a review by the Associated Press of court records finds at least 115 of the 170 had no police records:

Waco police have said that all those arrested after the shooting belonged to criminal motorcycle gangs. Most of them were being held on $1 million bonds Thursday, charged with engaging in criminal enterprise. Nine people were killed in Sunday’s shootout.

Records searched by The Associated Press show more than 115 of the 170 people arrested in the aftermath of a motorcycle gang shootout outside a Central Texas restaurant have not been convicted of a crime in Texas.  (link)

After previously saying he had not watched the CCTV video from the restaurant/bar yesterday (Wed) -which was reviewed by Associated Press reporters- Swanton now says he has watch the CCTV video.

He said he has viewed surveillance videos of the violence, and said they tell a different story from the some of the accounts being spun online.

“We can’t wait to show you what truly happened,” he said. (link)

Which is a disingenuous statement at best because all they need to do is authorize the restaurant to release the video, and the public can decide for ourselves.

One of the bikers the police killed, Jesus Delgado Rodriquez (65), was a purple heart recipient.

Family members of a man killed in a biker shootout at a Texas restaurant say he was not part of an outlaw motorcycle gang.  That contradicts police claims that all nine bikers who died were members of criminal gangs.

The son of 65-year-old Jesus Delgado Rodriguez, of New Braunfels, told the San Antonio Express-News that his father did not lead a life of violence. An Associated Press review of court records and a database maintained by the Texas Department of Public Safety found no criminal history in Texas for Rodriguez.

Family members said Rodriguez had belonged to two now defunct motorcycle clubs but was not part of any club when he was shot and killed at Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco.

Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton told the AP on Wednesday that all those killed were members of the Bandidos or the Cossacks. Swanton did not immediately return a message Thursday. (link)

In addition from a lawsuit filed against Twin Peaks by the neighboring restaurant Don Carlos it is claimed the police fired “thousands of rounds” toward the bikers; striking not only bike club members but also Don Carlos customer vehicles.

Summary and personal thoughts:  It is entirely possible that some of the bikers were criminals; and it is also entirely possible that twitchy police responded excessively and overreacted to a perceived threat.  These two possibilities are not mutually exclusive.

Who shot at whom first; who did or did not pull the trigger; and what might have spurred the 14 police officers to fire “thousands of rounds” at a group of 3 to 5 potentially armed bikers when the downrange backdrop was a patio filled with hundreds of unarmed bikers is not yet known.

Look closely at this picture:

waco 11

You can see bullet holes in the customer vehicles in the Don Carlos parking lot.

♦ NOTE: Direction of fire from Don Carlos toward Twin Peaks.
♦ NOTE: The downrange backdrop of that fire (for the bullets that miss their target) is the patio of Twin Peaks.

However, apparently pointing out a strong possibility for an overreaction by twitchy police is now considered “Conspiracy Theory”, or something.   A radio broadcast today calls our previous outline (which quoting MSM information) as conspiracy theory. [Listen at 8:15]

I find it interesting how intelligent people cannot bring themselves to believe the police may have influenced, initiated, created and/or worsened the events with their militarized (SWAT) presence at a bike club meeting.

Ruby Ridge?… How about M.O.V.E (Philadelphia)? … Or maybe Waco 1.0? … or perhaps more recently “Baby Bou-Bou” ringing any bells?  Cops make mistakes too !!

Doesn’t anyone else find it curious that an Asst. Police Chief was on scene at Twin Peaks along with the SWAT unit, presumably as scene commander prior to the shootings, and yet no-one has heard from him/her?

Doesn’t anyone else find it curious that initial police statements claimed they had “an active intelligence operation” on the “Bike Gang” which customarily would include monitoring (camera’s, video, etc) and yet the police release NO VIDEO to support their “we were under fire” claims?

A previous comment by J.D. sums up the strange sniff of it all nicely:

I’m former law enforcement for over 20 years. I have ridden with 2 different LEMC clubs. I worked undercover back in late 80’s and have dealt with 1% clubs many times. I have friends in 1% clubs.

I’m pro law enforcement but have a funny feeling that there is lots of horseshit in the story that Waco PD is telling.

I have family living and Working in that area. They have had interaction with the clubs and never felt scared or intimidated. Always felt safe.

Now are we going get the truth or more bullshit? I’m tending on believing the bikers sides on this deal more with every day that passes. Too many people arrested and charged with RICO that were just spending time at TP.

I think LE has overstepped it’s authority on filing these type charges on most these people. $1,000,000 bonds??? BS…

Even if you find reasonable excuses for all the LEO contradictions (fight in bathroom, shots inside, all killed were inside/dragged out etc.);  even if you ignore all the misleading statements by law enforcement spokesman Patrick Swanton (100 weapons, 50 weapons, 1000 weapons etc); even if you ignore the lack of willingness to produce factual data to support their claims, ….you are still left with a ridiculous assertion that 170 non-criminal people deserve a million dollar bond because they rode a motorcycle last Sunday to a meeting, and possibly witnessed what happened.

The total number of bikers on scene, according to Swanton, was 200.  170 are arrested, 18 were wounded, 9 were killed, that totals 197.  So only 3 people were non-conspirators?

This nonsense about weapons found in vehicles etc. is just that, nonsense.

If you go to a Waco Texas Wal-Mart on Sunday, rope off the parking lot, arrest the first 200 people you see and search their pick-up trucks, suv’s and various vehicles you’ll probably come up with a similar set of statistics.

50 out of 200 people captured at Wal-Mart with prior arrest records; some with pocket knives, chains, handguns, and even rifles in their vehicles etc.  

shocked2bbaby

So what? None of that is illegal or unlawful. Ridiculous. Go to a Bass Pro shop on Saturday and you’ll probably find even better stats if that’s the goal.

Another factor which makes it all the more curious is these are the ACTUAL talking points Sgt. Patrick Swanton is relying on to justify the shooting.  This innocuous nonsense is what they are focused on.  That itself indicates -to a reasonably discerning person- there’s something uncomfortable about the narrative the LEO responders are trying to avoid.

That’s not conspiracy, that’s just common sense.

It is not conspiracy theory the incident occurred at 12:24pm Central Time (1:24 pm Eastern) and in around 90 minutes, 2:04pm CST (3:04pm EST) this press conference was held, giving the specifics of 9 dead and 18 wounded and a restaurant owner who needs to be shut down for non-compliance.

    You ask some good questions but conveniently very biased. MY BIGGEST QUESTION….why are law abiding citizens associating with a known outlaw/criminal organization like the Bandidos?? This propaganda about meeting peacefully for biker rights is horseshit. The Bandidos boldly wear the 1%er patch…sorry, you don’t get to waive the white flag when you are a self proclaimed ruthless thug. Most members who were carrying weapons hastily hid them when the cops came in…TX is a CCL state…if you are carrying legally, no reason to hide your weapon. Generally I don’t mind the MC’s because they don’t mess with the public. However, you don’t get any sympathy when you are known to do ‘internal cleansing’.

      Why are law abiding citizens associating with the Bandidos? If you are not a part of the biker community and do not know about the Coalition of Clubs and Independent Riders, than you may need to do a little research. It is a national organization open to all bikers and meets in many cities around the US. Our chapter here in El Paso meets once a month. It is made up of all the local bike clubs and is attended by indepentents and club riders, both. There is no prohibition to any club from attending. So yes, the Bandidos have representation there, but then, so do all 5 Christian Coalition clubs, all 5 Veterans associations and the 2 American Legion Clubs. The day you tell me that these 12 clubs are guilty of anything because they attend the same meeting as the Bandidos, is the day I tell you that you are a judgemental ass.

        I didn’t say any of the other clubs were guilty. I question their decision to associate with the Bandidos who by all accounts organized the meeting. Don’t come crying to the general public when shit breaks out and claim ignorance to the likely occurrence of violence with the nefarious MC’s. The Waco PD has documented requests for Twin Peaks to desist in allowing the meetings to occur and I guarantee the local representation of the CoC knew that there was a reasonable expectation for shit to go down based on the previous meetings. Going defensive after the fact is bullshit. They knew who was coming and that confrontations were likely and they proceeded despite the request to stop the weekly meetings at Twin Peaks. The non violent clubs have a imperative to keep their members safe and it looks like they failed on this occasion. We don’t live in a police state, and the local PD is hired/voted in by the general public. Poor planning and a general disregard for safety drove this train. If that makes me a judgmental ass, so be it. I have a reasonable expectation to not deal with that kind of shit at 12pm at a Twin Peaks. I applaud the Waco PD’s response and those that were truly not guilty of participating will get their day in court. The rest can eat crow.

          I can see your view is “All” are guilty until proven innocent, Why? I believe a few are very likely guilty, probably of some type of disturbance ( unsure ) but to suggest they will get their day in court if not guilty is contrary to Law.
          ” innocent until proven guilty” ? the one million dollar bond was set that way to contain not the guilty, but those who are innocent. It’s very clear you have little understanding that innocent people likely died and family’s are distraught. Innocent bike riders wearing names on a vest showing names is not illegal. A Purple Heart U.S.M.C Veteran has died & has no criminal record at all. At the end of the day, we have a couple of demented riders, a Police Dept. itching for a show down, ( evident by the heavy & well armed P.D.) Waco got what they wanted, as they walk around freely, others are dead, and being held, basicly without bond.

For all we know, this vet you speak of was shot by a rider. At least 3 were shot dead, prior to the police responding….do some more research. An article re-posted by this website actually says the base telling of the story is plausible and mirrors that of the Waco PD.

              So the police were on scene, armed and armored, even the tactical swat team with sniper emplacements, and they didn’t respond until 3 bikers had killed each other? Who said that? And then they killed 6 more to stop them from killing each other? Exactly how did they assess and ascertain targets? I agree with the person above, innocent until proven guilty; not the other way around. And by the way, the first amendment also guarantees the right to freely and peaceably assemble and associate. Just because you are assembled and/or associating doesn’t mean you can be considered guilty in the parking lot and judged by cops at the scene and executed at will.

        How many LE clubs are allowed in at the CoC. In Florida- None. Why the secrecy.? Why no transparency? After having rode with an MC for the past many years, my experience with the CoC is that they all started as a means to end the violence between 1% clubs by offering a venue to establish communication and dileneate territory. What the CoC has morphed into – in my opinion and experience- is a venue where the dominant 1% Club flexes its muscle and essentially makes any newcomers who want to establish a club in “their” territory kiss the ring and often pay a “tax” to get established. If a tax or donation is not levied these subordinate clubs are made to wear a “support” patch- in essence pledging allegiance to that group. It’s all a bunch of horseshit- Ride Free and do what and wear what you want. Try taking my shit or intimidating me- way too old and experienced for that crap.

        Regards to the TP incident- my thoughts and prayers go out to those involved- the dead, the families and those responsible.

          No LE clubs because they’re full of fake backstabbers. Of course there’s LEO at the FL CoCs, they just don’t wear colors or hide within other clubs to perform undercover investigations. As for the dominant club, there are many powerful clubs in FL so there’s no one that dominates, though each have their respective areas. During the CoC meetings everyone typically gets along. While this TP event was occurring there were other CoC meetings with far more people, with far more variety of clubs, with zero incidents, and this happens all the time. This story by the police of TP is political agenda, and an attempt to work on public opinion. Hollywood played out on the 24 internet news channels, and the public as the lobbied audience. One last thought, if I set up an ambush, and have tons of people… I don’t arrive after those I intend to ambush. With so man ex military strategists in the clubs, you’d think the Bandidos would have had plants ready to notify and actually “ambush” the Cossacks. No? Hmm… only one “gang” was there before everyone, with guns out and ready… the cops.

        Considering my buddy is a cop that was there and I flew combat missions with him. I’ll take his word…see, I actually have talked to someone who was there, so I already have a more informed opinion than you or the writer. Just bc you are an ex cop doesn’t give you any credit on knowing what went down, nor does being a motorcycle rider–pretty sure most of us here are riders. As an ex cop, you would know that cops are trained to use various levels of force, all designed to deescalate the scenario. The only deduction I made was from fact…local PD asked them to move the meetings due to violence concerns. The organizers and TP ignored those requests….shooting occurs. Please inform me what parts of the writer’s biased deductions I’m not reading correctly. Let’s start with the ‘thousands of rounds’ shall we…thousands implies at least 2000, with 14 officers, a minimum of 142 rounds per officer. While assault rifles were present, most had sidearms….tell me Mr ex cop…how many rounds does the average officer carry, extra magazines, etc…142 is the minimum based on the ‘thousands’….bullshit. The AP has interviewed actual bystanders who all corroborate the police returning fire. Do you really think that 14 officers, Mr Ex Cop, just decided to go Rambo all at the same time….or more likely, they were returning fire in fear of their lives and protecting others?? Please put down your crack pipe and come back with some actual talking points and leave the ex cop and rider crap to the side. The writer has done very little investigation…it’s all here-say, he hasn’t seen the video, he wasn’t there, he didn’t interview anyone who was there. He’s taking pot shots at the cops. His only likely plausible talking point is that the police arrested some innocent bikers. I’m sure that part will get sorted out…the rest, however, pure speculative horseshit. The AP has the video!!! If it gave any credit to the websites claims, we’d have heard about it already. That many cops don’t decide to go off the reservation and participate in a blood bath in the middle of the day with innocent bystanders danger close. You sir, are the uniformed naive and prejudiced gomer with your head clearly buried in the sand, or quite possibly, somewhere on your person.

      Ok you ask a good question but its not horseshit. The Texas confederation of Clubs was started to bring clubs closer together and help stop street violence, and believe me it has helped more than anyone knows. A lot of problems have been solved behind closed doors instead of on the streets with death. Now the COC deals a lot with motorcycle safety and regulations that involve motorcycles and automobiles. The Bandidos are just a SMALL part of that and I mean very small when you add up the number of members that are involved in the COC like B.A.C.A. and the Legacy Vets and countless Christian Clubs, they far outnumber the Bandidos. Anyone can attend a meeting you don’t have to be a member or even ride a motorcycle just believe in the freedom and liberty’s we all enjoy in OUR LAND OF THE FREE. All I ask is type in the Texas COC or any other COC and read what they are about. I hated going to COC meetings but I do agree with what they try to do for everyone’s rights.

This violates Constitution. The police don’t have right to demand any documentation from a person without having evidence first that the person has committed a crime. Yes, the stopping of a person in Texas, even in a private establishment is “legal detainment”. This means if the person knows his/her rights and claims those rights, the law enforcement cannot legally violate their rights. Legal detainment means you are under a form of arrest in which any submission of documentation can be used against you in a court of law. See Taooflaw.com

You know, like freedom of association, freedom of assembly, the right to bear arms. Many of those weapons that were found in Waco were in or on vehicles and found when they searched them. It is totally legal to have a loaded gun in you car or locked on your motorcycle in Texas, even with a CHL. They called pocket knives “weapons”. My grandma carries a pocket knife. I always carry a firearm on me, sometimes have an additional one in the car, I carry a fixed blade (a 30th anniversary gift from my husband) and a pocket knife. All of those “weapons” are totally legal for me to carry and totally normal for someone in Texas to carry. I have always been a supporter of law enforcement and always given them the benefit of the doubt. But when the sheriff says that every one of those bikers is a criminal and that by just showing up that day, they are responsible for capital murder or engaging in organized crime, he lost my support. By him searching those cars and motorcycles and making legally owned weapons that were removed from locked vehicles out to be connected to the crime, he makes me question HIS motives. And by making a multi-tool or pocket knife out to be something heinous, he lost all credibility. He is laughable. He can’t even get his weapon count straight. It is 100, no it is 50, no it is 1000, uhhhh….I mean it is 300. Whatever. Praying for the entire truth to come out and I’m sure it isn’t what we are hearing from the Waco law enforcement community.

Had trouble started I guess I would have been rounded up along with everyone else even though our patch features a Bible and praying hands. As a former cop, I can also relate to the chaos resulting from the incident in Waco and the unique challenges that a crime scene of this magnitude presents. That said, by now they should have been able to sort out the non-one percenter riders using the presumption of innocence approach rather than what appears to be the opposite tack.

    I’ve read the Cossacks president’s eyewitness account of the parking lot battle. ( prospect was ran over ” foot” )
    As far as facts, 8 Cossacks are dead, 1 Bandidio… Being ex- military I find it difficult to believe “thousands of rounds” were fired in this battle. Of course I may be wrong. The body count would be much higher. No civilians killed either, hmm, Police are becoming more brazen than at anytime in my 52 years. Here’s the thing, 170 people are incarcerated over what most likely started between 3 to 4 bikers. A million dollar bond is redic & in my opinion is illegal. ( how many are guilty? ) waco continuously states “evil biker gangs” this presumes they are all guilty by proxy only..” Evil bikers” ya know..
    Only in Texas…

    Here’s the link from the Cossacks president “eyewitness account”
    He claims after the “prospect” was ran over, (foot) words, then punches followed by guns ( Bandidio’s ) killing 3 right off the bat, if true, that clearly dismisses the ideal police ” killed everyone who died. Read & see what you think…

    i suspected the police of being the shooters from day one. too many kill shots. doesn’t sound like the kind of shooting that goes on when people are excited and all hell is breaking loose. sounds like someone took aim and squeezed off the rounds. sounds like snipers to me. therefore if the cops did this and i think they did, then that to me sounds like at the very least manslaughter and/or outright murder. the police had no right to do this. none. they are at fault and i surely hope that these people have good legal counsel . the man at the restaurant who lost his business because of this also has a good case. i would take this to federal court however. if possible . and get it out of wacko with change of venue. why hasn’t anyone challenged this outrageous bond . most of these men do not even have records. when all is said and done, the waco police and others are going to be made to look like complete idiots and keystone cops, a bunch of trigger happy fools. and because of the trigger happy goons , nine men are dead for nothing…………..and so it goes when are people going to have enough of this crap? the police are just getting too out of control in the land of the free and the home of the brave? freedom? what freedom?

    Sundance,
    I just saw your whole article posted at another site. They did credit you, but a whole copy & paste job. Now, I do not blog, I always thought using extracts was the way to go, pageviews in the end that matters. By pasting your whole article leaves the reader no reason to come here.

      Thanks. Unfortunately, our material is ripped off all over – I’ve long ago given up on the issue.

      It says more about them than anything else.

      There’s a crew of connected website operators who collaborate together to rip people off and then host the information “as if” they create it, research it, etc. themselves. IJR is the absolute worst.

  20. This is BS , thousands of rounds fired ? BS? No way ? How many rounds in a magazine ? Each officer carries 3 on his belt (1) in the gun 2 in a mag pouch do the math . 45 rounds maybe 46 rounds max per officer x 22 officers = if they all fired EVER round they had !

    WACO BOTTOM LINE: A Fight broke out in the Parking Lot and Police opened fire. Bikers fired back at Police while running for cover. Police blamed the TP owner and Praised the Officers. Police arrested everyone in Twin Peaks and set 1,000,000 bail on 170+ People. Police confiscated ALL motorcycles and Autos of the 170. Police are currently spinning the story and using the Media to do it. Beware of all news stories. Most recent story coming from an “unnamed” Cossack who claims to have been in the parking lot watching “his buddies” get killed. This Cossack nicknamed “Houdini” for his “getaway” (or “Coward” for running from his “Brothers” dying on the ground) escaped Police while flying Cossack Colors of bright yellow. This “UNNAMED COSSACK” also claims that The Cossacks refused to pay the Banditoes 100 per month for the Privilage of wearing “bottom rockers” claiming the entire State of Texas. These patches are the most sacred of biker gang patches and claim the right to territory. The Police have claimed these patches were the reason for the B&C war. BEWARE OF BS NEWS! Wait for the Video of the Parking Lot… I suspect there won’t be much.

    FYI- There is a rumor going around that McLennan Co is attempting to persuade the jailed sign a waiver relinquishing their right not to sue for wrongful imprisonment, false arrest, malicious prosecution, whatever it’s called in the state of Russia err Texas in exchange for dropping death penalty charges.

    Take that with the grain of salt it is worth, as it is grapevine info.

    No civilians killed? Really? There were 9 civilians killed. The police cannot even figure out how many people they arrested. Was is 170 or 192. Did they confiscate thousand of weapons or was it 300 or was it 50. Since when is a wallet chain or steeled toed boots a weapon?

    I was not personally there but know people who were…..

    People were randomly detained and jailed. Many who arrived after the incident.

    Wake up! If they will arrest you for riding a motorcycle or attending a meeting then what is next? Bikers all over the state of Texas are now being pulled over just because they are riding.

    There is little room for doubt when considering who actually did the shooting / killing. one can’t help but wonder if the body count would be as high if the cops had not been so “prepared” to de escalate a threat to public safety.

        Nothing in your comment answers my question.

        I am trying to figure out the source of the information that all 9 of the dead were killed by the police.

        What you wrote is just speculative reasons whey you consider it likely.

        How does the author of this post know that all 9 were killed by police?

        From a video? From an eyewitness? An audio recording? Another article?

        Where is that info coming from?

        I am trying to find out the source so that I can either pursue it further or draw my own conclusions.

        Right now it is just a statement that I have no way of knowing if it is true or not.

    By some of the logic presented, the Brian Stowe case in California should have resulted in the arrest of everyone who attended the Dodgers/Giants game until they could prove their case against suspects yet to be named. There were no less than 10 marked police units in the shopping center parking lot prior to the incident here, and 2 of the group who were not involved in the bikers’ rights group removed their vests and changed into police jackets with masks to conceal their identity. One notified their superiors prior to the incident, letting them know this group was armed and preparing to attack, but nothing was done due to not wanting to blow his cover over misdemeanor unlawful carry of weapons charges. Additionally, the leader on scene of that group was a cop in a small town in the area and attempted to claim he was working undercover while in jail, which was rebuked by the department he was employed by. It was an ambush. The other group was seen on Twin Peaks video prior to the Bandidos arriving readying weapons, and then jumping over the patio railing when they arrived. Despite the history of any Club involved, the truth should come out. Those who planned this should be held accountable, as well as those who allowed it to escalate to the level it did.
