Texas police announced on Monday that 192 people will face organized crime charges following the Waco bike-gang shooting where nine people were killed and 18 were injured.

Nine people were shot to death after rival biker gang members opened fire at the Twin Peaks Sports Bar and Grill in Central Texas on Sunday. The incident initially started as a fist fight, which then turned into a battle with knives, clubs and chains, and later, guns.

One witness described the scene as a “war zone.”…

According to police, three rival biker gangs began fighting at the Waco restaurant while multiple officers were out in the parking lot arranging protection for residents. The fight started in the restaurant and spilled outside…

The officers were in the area because they had anticipated possible trouble at the restaurant — which has been the scene of ongoing tensions between bikers in recent weeks…

Police immediately secured the scene. District attorney Abel Reyna told police two weeks ago that trouble had been brewing among the biker gangs for some time.

“Thank goodness the officers were here, and took the action that they needed to take to save numerous lives,” Swanton said.

The officers at the scene engaged the gunmen in the fight — firing their weapons, as well. However, Waco police said no officers were wounded in the gun battle…

No doubt the NRA will provide legal aid for the bikers involved in the shoot-out. Gangs like these are only defending the same rights and policies that concern the NRA – nowadays. Although they don’t get the same cut in gun sales profits the NRA does.

Taco Rage in Texas

SAN ANTONIO, TX — A Taco Bell drive-through customer who became enraged because of a price increase on Beefy Crunch Burritos fired a BB gun through the window at a manager on Sunday, police said.

No one was hurt from the shots fired by the man, who also waved a pistol and an assault rifle in the parking lot, Police Sergeant Chris Benavides said.

As the restaurant’s employees and customers hit the floor, the manager called police, and when officers arrived, the angry patron fired several shots at the police cars, Benavides said.

The man then barricaded himself inside a nearby motel room, sparking a standoff that lasted until police lobbed tear gas inside and the man surrendered.

Benavides said the burritos had been sold for 99 cents each as a promotion, but the man was apparently angry that the promotion had ended, and the price had gone up to $1.49.

Like, if you get this much of a reaction over the end of a special on burritos, how about something truly important like – say – the Dallas Cowboys moving to Los Angeles?

5-day supply [for all USA] of pot seized in Mexico – 105 tons

Mexican security forces seized at least 105 tons of marijuana bound for the United States in the border city of Tijuana on Monday, by far the biggest such bust in Mexico in recent years.

The drugs were seized by soldiers and police officers in predawn raids in three neighborhoods, Gen. Alfonso Duarte Mujica of the army said at a news conference. The raid followed a shootout with gunmen in a convoy of vehicles, he said, and 11 people were arrested. Soldiers in masks displayed the marijuana, which was found wrapped in 10,000 packages and carried an estimated street value of about $340 million, according to General Duarte. He said the marijuana would be incinerated immediately after the weighing and counting were completed.

The raid began when Tijuana municipal police officers on patrol came under fire from the gunmen in the convoy, General Duarte said. A police officer and a suspect were wounded.

The army and state police sent reinforcements, and the suspects led the security forces to the neighborhoods where the marijuana was found in tractor-trailers and houses.

Let’s see. 5-day supply for the whole United States. So, if California didn’t get their share, that would leave enough for the rest of the country for a couple of months.
