Do You Want Cops In Your Motorcycle Club
OPINIONS: By W. T. RoadBlock Harrell
During some recent conversations, my riding partners told me they are not happy with the recent upsurge of LEOs attempting to join non-LEO MCs. Why would a LEO want to join a non-LEO MC, particularly those clubs fighting for our rights? Well, recent history answers that question.
On May 17th, 2015, in Waco Texas nine (9) people were killed, nineteen (19) wounded and one hundred seventy-seven (177) arrested. We were subjected to bogus and slanted news reports, with naïve reporters believing LEO leaders instead of doing investigative reporting. The American public was told that evil motorcycle gangs clashed violently in a public place, endangering families and bystanders, and blasted each other to pieces. Who among us believed that bullshit?
Unlike the general public, we scrambled to find videos, eye-witnesses’ testimony, attorneys-in-the-know, and ultimately, the coroner’s reports. We wanted the truth.
Take a Look at the Facts
First: The Texas Coalition of Clubs and Independents (TCOC&I), a political activist organization, had scheduled a noon meeting at the Twin Peaks Restaurant. This well-known organization has been active in Texas for twenty (20) years.
Second: State, county and federal law enforcement arrived ahead of the meeting. They set up video cameras in strategic locations that allowed them to video the parking lot in front of the restaurant. They placed their Paramilitary SWAT team members, armed with automatic weapons, in strategic positions to cover the parking lot.
Third: The Cossacks, a motorcycle club who wasn’t invited and didn’t get along with the COC&I, showed up. Why? The evidence shows that undercover agents in that club sent out an email to Cossack members saying they had been invited by the Bandidos MC. This was a lie; the Cossacks had not been invited.
Last: Witness interviews and videos establish that Cossacks members rode in and parked. Shortly afterwards, some members of the TCOC&I arrived, and a confrontation followed in the parking lot. This confrontation was followed by the ever-vigilant law enforcement officer-in-charge giving what he called an “Open Fire” order. The results? Nine dead, at least nineteen wounded, more than one hundred and seventy-seven arrested and held under million-dollar bonds, businesses closed, jobs and livelihoods lost, and families destroyed. All thanks to LEO.
Conclusion: Waco law enforcement deliberately attempted to destroy a political activist group, regardless of the loss of innocent lives. Waco law enforcement is responsible for the deliberate incitement of violence, murder, and denying citizens their civil rights. The law enforcement agencies involved are still stonewalling both the citizens and media while they frantically try to cover up their unlawful actions.
My Question: What hard lesson did we learn from this? Active lobbying and seeking legal relief from the courts to protect your civil rights can cost you your life when high-strung LEO officials become puppets of the Feds.
Law Enforcement agencies continue to excessively violate the laws and legal rights we all have. Their members –good or bad–have no place in the motorcycle clubs fighting for our rights.
