#REPOST We don’t want to hear shit about “if you don’t commit a crime” or failure to comply with police. They got into a shootout, a bloody melee with police… in a public place, 9 were killed. And all charges dropped.
“The announcement comes nearly four years after roughly 200 members of rival motorcycle clubs descended on the Waco strip-mall parking lot, allegedly to settle a territorial dispute. It soon devolved into a bloody melee. Terrified diners enjoying a midday lunch took cover in the restaurant as dozens of Bandidos and Cossacks bikers exchanged gunfire and brandished knives. Overwhelmed police added to the gunfire but failed to stop the violence. Nine people died in just minutes, making it the deadliest biker shootout in U.S. history. At least 20 were critically injured. Dozens of guns and knives were abandoned as swarms of tattooed men scattered.
Nearly everyone at the scene – 177 people – was arrested.
What followed was a prosecutorial fiasco as, one by one, the criminal cases collapsed under a former district attorney’s leadership. During the four years of prosecution against dozens of alleged gang members, only a single case went to trial, resulting in a mistrial. The vast majority of the original 177 cases were dismissed.”
All charges dropped in Waco biker shootout that left 9 dead, 177 arrested
Four years later, not a single person involved will be convicted.
