Weapons at Waco Biker Massacre

twin peaks biker shooting
Sgt. Swanton from Waco PD

One thousand weapons were…. wait. I mean 318 weapons were confiscated at the Twin Peaks shooting. I found that information on the Waco Police Department’s Facebook page. Yes, you read correct. They are not releasing any information to the public or the media, but at least their Facebook page tells me how many weapons were found. The weapons confiscated are as follows:

118 Handguns
1 Ak-47
157 Knives
43 others

Wait, disregard that. I meant to say 457 weapons were found which includes 151 firearms and 12 long guns. “The weapons recovered include: knives, brass knuckles, batons, tomahawks, weighted weapons, a hatchet, stun guns, bats, clubs, a machete, a pipe, an ax, pepper spray, and a chain.”

Let me hurry up and finish this blog before the weapons count changes again.

********

Just like the amount of weapons vary, so does the amount of those involved at the Twin Peaks Shooting, but let’s say it is 177 arrested, 20 injured, and 9 killed. That amounts to a total of 206 people. Let’s assume the amount of weapons recovered is 457. That means that the average person carried 2.2 weapons on themselves. If it is 318, the average number of weapons is reduced to 1.5 weapons per person. That is very important.

On social media, press conferences by the Waco Police Department and/or Sgt. Swanton,  the short list of people supporting the arrest of bikers that day, and even comments on my own Blog, people continue to focus on the amount of weapons as that automatically implies guilt. I call that the Copperfield Effect after magician David Copperfield.

Copperfield is an expert at slight of hand. While you are busy looking at his right hand, with his left hand he is making the object disappear. That is exactly what all those that are focusing on the amount of weapons confiscated are doing. “Hey, look over here at my right hand,” and with their left hand is where they bury the truth.

*********

Whether I am riding or driving or at work, I have a firearm with me. On my recent cross country trip, I carried a firearm on me, while another was in my truck with Anny. At Wal-Mart I bought a cheap folding pocket knife in case I needed to cut anything while camping. I put that knife in my saddlebag and it is still there because I forgot to take it out. That means when I am riding I have a firearm and a knife, the same amount of weapons as those arrested in the Waco Massacre.

This doesn’t include the fact that if I know I am going to war with a “rival criminal biker gang,” I’m only showing up with a knife and a firearm. I’m no expert, but I think I would have brought with me a lot more firepower.

********

I have ridden with motorcycle clubs (mc), law enforcement motorcycle clubs (lemc), and independents; and it is safe to say almost everyone is carrying. This is Florida, we love our guns as much as Texans do, not to mention, legally we are allowed to carry with a concealed weapons license. I once organized a Safety Awareness Ride where 178 motorcycles, 9 cars, and one 18 wheeler participated. How many weapons is that?

In law school I was once told by a professor that if the law is not on your side, argue the facts. If the facts are not on your side, argue the law. Neither seems to be on the side of Waco officials, but they argue in part the facts since they only focus on the amount of weapons confiscated because there is one thing for sure, the law is not on their side.

For my next trick, watch all the Waco officials disappear!

    Thank you Mike for your excellent comment. There were a few facts I was not aware of.

    I do not believe for one minute that anyone at the Twin Peaks came with the plan to kill anyone else: and that includes the LEO’s and the individual cops. Although the snipers are mentally prepared to carry out their role in every scenario that they are introduced to.
    Then something happened and it all descended into a Hell on Earth for everyone there.

    That said.

    There are so many tell tale facts, that stand for the proposition that the LEO’s were there to foment a riot and arrest a large number of people.

    1) That Justice of the Peace was on hand, with the LEO’s. Did he have the arrest warrants prepared and ready for the arrests?

    2) The largest LEO Union was already on hand with enough supplies to refresh the cops during a siege.

    3) The Snipers and other riflemen were given a firing protocol that is reserved for terrorists or gunmen in a scenario like Sandy Hook, where the gunman/men are prepared to die to inflict casualties.

    4) The LEO’s could have prevented the meeting in its entirety.
    a)They have the ear of the State Alcoholic Beverage Control Board and it does have the authority to shut down any place serving alcohol.
    b) The DPS and the Waco PD, not only have to power to stop and detain anyone; they use it on a near regular basis to harass bikers and bike clubs. See, the book written by Undercover ATF Agent Jay Dobyns; “No Angel”; where he recounts an event where he was told to ambush and kill members of the Bandidos MC for the Hells Angels MC. Dobyns allegedly got word out to his superiors and they had the Nevada Highway Patrol and the Las Vegas PD stop the Bandidos and detain them for two hours and then deny them entry into the city of Las Vegas. All without justifying it to the Bandidos present.
    c) The ATF had special “Pole Cameras” erected the day before the meeting.
    d) Sargent Swanton reported that the LEO’s had real time information from an undercover agent at the time the fight allegedly broke out.

    There is a short story out on Amazon: “The Waco Texas Biker Massacre.” This story gives a very plausible scenario about more than how this came to happen, but why it came to happen.

    What was the spark that lit off the explosion of gunfire that sunny Sunday afternoon? Did one of the undercovers panic and call for help?We know from infiltrator Anthony Taite’s book; Into the Abyss; that the Undercovers wear distinctive clothing and ride distinctively painted motorcycles. At every run or rally or meeting the LEO’s employ snipers to cover the undercovers in case something goes wrong. Once that barrage of fire starts everyone joins in; and with automatic weapons equipped with sophisticated sights, the death toll is high.

    At this point, it all seems plausible. From the beginning when I saw a Justice of the Peace handling this instead of a judge, and then the high bonds, I realized there was no turning back b/c lawsuits would come down the road on civil rights violation. So, they had to keep pushing forward. Problem is, the keep digging.

    Correct David. That is why I didn’t mention that ak-47 as someone mentioned to me in a post. I’m not sure who that belonged to and how many weapons were just of those belonging to the mc’s.

    It should be noted the count of weapons includes weapons confiscated in illegal searches of the vehicles in Twin Peaks and surrounding parking lots after the arrests. Only the police know how many weapons were involved with the shootings. The Don Pedro video shows police planting a handgun and marking it as evidence before cutting loose one of their paid informants.

    In your personal opinion, do you think it’s possible, plausible, probable that ATF or one of the other alphabet federal LE’s orchestrated this Waco incident and left the WPD to be the “fall guy” to avoid another Branch Davidion type of debacle? What might have been their motive? I find it interesting there isn’t much news about their participation even ‘tho they were ALL reported as being “on site” when this all went down…just a thought…

    I wish you COULD make all the Wacko officials disappear!!

    Originally, it was reported (at least in my state) there were 1,000 weapons found. I come to Wacko and find out from someone in the know that ‘officials’ were counting all the flatware on the tables, lololol! So those ever changing numbers don’t surprise me a bit.

    Now, go enjoy your long weekend 🙂
