May 22, 2015this interesting..some may not.. """""The narrative by the Waco Police Department on the sequence of events leading to 9 motorcyclists has been revised at least 12 times since the incident. Of course, this is to be expected as memories are fallable and added details usually enhance the narrative. However, all the narratives put forth by the Waco Police Department look like they are false once examined in the light of security footage and cell phone footage caught by innocent bystanders.
For example, SGT Swanton of the Waco PD has sworn up and down that the fight broke out in the Twin Peaks restaurant and spilled outside where a biker pulled a gun which erupted into a gun fight. As CNN notes, after reviewing the security footage, it is painfully obvious that nobody fought inside the restaurant. Not one person.
Restaurant security camera footage showing Sunday`s events is now in the hands of investigators, a spokesperson for the Waco Twin Peaks said in a statement Wednesday. The video, the statement said, shows that "no violence started inside the restaurant."
"What happened inside the restaurant was that people sought safety inside, where they assisted each other and came to the aid of patrons, staff and management," the statement said.
Why would the Waco Police Department stand by their position that the management and/or corporate leadership of Twin Peaks is responsible?
Bloggers have been asking a series of questions that may be of interest to our readers: Legally speaking:
Could Twin Peaks legally refuse service to bikers simply for being bikers and/or wearing leather? If so, could they be sued for discrimination like the bakeries and caterers in recent memory who refused service to gay weddings and lost in court? Would it have been a wise decision to refuse service?
From The Waco Police Massacre:
So far unasked/ unanswered by LEOs:
Did the restaurant or surrounding businesses have cameras operating?
Did the cops have body cams or dash cams operating?
Did the cops have undercover video or audio operating inside the building or on the patio?
Was a warrant obtained, if so?
Were there undercover officers inside the building, inside the MC clubs, inside the bathroom?
How many rounds/shots did the cops fire, and from what type of firearms?
How many cops shot their fireams? How many on scene did NOT?
How many off duty cops were present and fired their firearms?
How many of the off duty officers present were in plain clothing?
How many of these plain clothes officers entered the restaurant prior to the incident?
How many off duty cops were already wearing body armor when they happened to be there?
How many of the off duty officers happened to have automatic weapons with them that day?
How many bikers face assault charges? How many of those arrested were found carrying handguns? How many of those were legal? How many of those were illegal?
How many of the deceased were shot in the back? How many, if any firearms were found near the bodies of the deceased?
Is there a single firearm that has been traced to a known biker on the scene?
How many cop cars have bullet holes in them?
Why were the media kept so far back as to not be able to take pictures of any of the supposed 100 weapons found scattered around, or the items found neat or on the bodies?
Since when is a wallet chain a weapon?
It must be added that Twin Peaks` corporate office has released a statement which contradicts SGT Swanton`s narrative that the City of Waco contacted the corporate office asking them to cancel the biker meeting:
It is important to clarify that, to the best of our knowledge, law enforcement officials did not ask either the Waco restaurant operator (with whom they spoke several times) or the Twin Peaks franchisor to cancel the patio reservation that was made on Sunday. Based on the information to date, we also believe that the violence began outside in the area of the parking lot, and not inside our restaurant or on our patio, as has been widely reported.
Finally, and we will leave you with this.
The Waco PD were not wearing their body cameras, nor did they have any dash cams on at the time of the shooting. Up to 30 officers were dispatched to the meeting with semi-automatic M-4 (AR-15) weapons with 30 round magazines. It appears that all 9 victims were shot by officers and even though the police claim they found guns in the "weapons stash" on the bikers, it should be noted that the bikers claim to be legal concealed carry license holders.
As noted here, this is looking more and more like a cop thought he saw a gun (which was actually a wallet or something similar) and then the boys in blue all opened fire. The aftermath of police and their unwavering supporters is all a cover up. When the police are allowed to be judge, jury, and executioner, then you, my friends, could be their next victim.(Blogger`s words, not mine).
So it`s up to you to decide.
Is the Waco PD telling the truth? Was this really a meeting of hardened gang members? Or is the gang in blue engaged in a massive coverup? Remember, there are three sides to this story: The police, the bikers, and the truth.
