Three Guns In A Saddlebag

San Antonio – The dude whose saddlebags held the murder weapon that very likely killed Bandido Manuel Rodriguez walked away from a murder and aggravated assault charge for the gunplay at Twin Peaks.

So did other suspects for whom police developed strong leads to arrest for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, but then neglected to do so in favor of the encouragement of a perfect – or that is, imperfect – storm at a crowded restaurant on a Sunday after church in an area shopping mall, the Central Texas Market Place, located at I-35 and Hwy 6.

The elected Criminal District Attorney dismissed his charge of engaging in organized criminal activity in connection with capital murder and aggravated assault just the other day. Good as green stamps and Bitcoin, that set of walking papers; the man could have been sentenced to anywhere from 15 to 99 years had he been convicted.

Why? Why all this? At a time like this?

As the federal RICO trial of Bandidos Jeff Pike and John Portillo plods along in this city, evidence withheld during the only murder trial to take place so far – that of Bandido Jake Carrizal at Waco – tells the true tale of the double-cross ambush, the L-Shaped mercenary attack by Cossacks while the cops stood by and watched from an L-shaped ambush position of their own.

That action followed a swift retaliatory rifle attack by militarized policemen armed with bullet-resistant armor and Kevlar helmets and wielding AR-15 5.56 caliber copper-jacketed NATO rounds.

All that – and a bag of chips – and it was all over in 45 seconds. Nine lay dead; twenty suffered gunshot wounds and the abrasions, lacerations, contusions and blunt force trauma of full-speed, no pads, hand-to-hand combat. In less than 5 minutes, the soldiers had the throng of nearly 300 souls on their faces, subdued, and were busy collecting boots, billfolds, pocket knives and – PHONES.

Same same as VC war diaries or dispatch records from radiotelephone operators, written orders, or military ID and snapshots.

The authorities clearly held off in favor of a massive intelligence operation – sweep and contain, rather than search and destroy – the people arrested held under a million dollars bond until reduction by a judge, and  thus controlled for nearly three years until the federal prosecution of the targeted club, Bandidos, U.S.A., is well underway.

Jurors didn’t buy the state’s theory of prosecution in the case tried against Bandido Jacke Carrizal,  which ended in a mistrial, though motorcycle “gang experts” of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives held forth from the witness stand for two solid weeks about other clubs, other murders other massacres – all of which took place long ago, in places far, far away from Six Shooter Junction.

They say when the Bureau grows up to be as big as the FBI, they will add Land, Cattle and Bibles to its jurisdiction. But, who are they to talk, whoever they turn out to be?

There is solid evidence to suggest that federal authorities stimulated actions by the Texas Department of Public Safety, “gang experts” trained in seminars at police academies who work for municipal police, and members of prison cliques who ride to live and live to ride – all of them acting as agent provocateurs.

What’s under the table, swept under the rug?

The international border with Mexico, once buffered by 150 miles of cactus, scorpions, rattlesnakes, vicious, marauding have nots, a scorching sun, ankle deep sands and brush with thorns long enough to sew buffalo hide, has expanded to at least twice at wide.

Let’s start with a tale of two  filling stations, both deadly combat assaults carried out under extremely hazardous conditions  on the auspicious date of 3/22/15; neither redressed by arrest or charges, and one of them located at the at the 322 mile marker on Interstate 35, at Lorena, Texas.

Federal prosecutors announced at the onset of the RICO (racketeer influenced or corrupt organizations) trial that the litigation at hand is not about Twin Peaks, but it’s about an ongoing criminal enterprise operated by an “outlaw motorcycle gang” as defined by the Department of Justice.

There a select number of Presidents who have a background in this exclusive group, Skull and Bones, a large sampling of financial, legal, government service and financial executives who are members, and a preponderance of the top echelons of the clandestine national security community. The nation’s top spies seem to come from the ranks of this exclusive club, and they like to arrange their clandestine deeds of ritual trauma on numerically auspicious dates and at locations of notable symbolic significance. For instance, 3+2=5, 5+2=7; 7×5=35, if you are so inclined to take that meaning.

Throughout the winter and early spring of 2015, the Joint Special Operations Command had planted stories that generated a great deal of publicity about a hands-on special operations training called JADE HELM 15. It’s a systematic exercise operated under an artificial intelligence program called JADE2, a product developed by defense contractor Raytheon. An on-scene commander at a remote Fusion Center has complete contact through satellite surveillance, mobile data terminals, radio surveillance, aerial reconnaissance, and boots on the ground. The software can make suggestions and recommendations in real time through the coordination of all known information and observations.

Operations took place throughout the state.

There is a pattern of no official reaction to the violent deeds of targeted organizations in conflict in the border regions of the continental U.S.

When the evidence of that pronounced pattern comes up in the federal RICO trial, it receives special handling and an omission of the full facts.

For instance, regarding the discovery of evidence in the case against the former President and Vice President of Bandidos, U.S.A., a co-counsel for the defense said the evidence turned over by the prosecution was complete up to the beginning of the Twin Peaks incidents, and there it stopped. In the days following the Twin Peaks violence at Waco, the discovery of witness statements and documentation of racketeering resumed where the timeline had been bare during the Twin Peaks investigation.

CERTAIN DOCUMENTS have come sailing over the transom at The Legendary that tell the full facts of how the alleged perpetrators at Gordon, Texas, who lacerated  with hammers and chains the scalp of a Cossack at the Bar-B Truck Stop, and the serious injuries to a Bandido’s head in the middle of the southbound traffic lanes at the 322 mile marker at Lorena, Texas, have been allowed to slip away and not face the music for their deeds.

The narratives don’t sound much different than the vaudeville scripts produced at the Laotian border, the Golan Heights, Gaza Strip, Afghani-Pakistani border, or any other border buffer where folks are looking to dominate the scene.

The net net: In these deadly attacks, police have arrested no one.

The Bar-B is located only a couple of miles from the Cossacks’ club house at Mingus on I-20, well on the way from Cowtown to Abilene, in Palo Pinto County.

A few minutes after 1 p.m Cossack Arthur David Young, 37, wheeled into the truck stop to get gas for his scoot.

His old lady, April Michelle Davis, went inside to pay for the fuel, and while she waited, dudes spilled out of three vehicles to beat up Young. One came inside and told the clerk, Kimberly Dawn Winblad, to turn off the emergency shut off valve.

She said no to that idea, so whoever he was found the emergency valve on his own and shut it off.

In a private interview, a biker who claims he has been confronted similarly in filling station brawls said he routinely keeps his butane lighter in hand while he fills the tanks of his hog. That’s why it’s standard practice to have someone go shut off the emergency valve before the festivities start.

Young said “about 20” bikers came tumbling out of three vehicles and told him to take off his vest with the Cossacks patch and Texas rocker arm.

When he refused, they started hitting his head with a hammer, left him bleeding.

After the cops arrived, they found two phones and took them to a DPS lab to have the data dumped. As it turned out, the pictures and texts indicated their owners are both members of the Villistas Motorcycle Club named Justin Dewayne Malloy and Michael David Dawson. When they located them at San Angelo, they admitted to being at Gordon, but declined to give statements without a lawyer present.

Nevertheless, the public learned from law enforcement that it was the dreaded Bandidos who whipped up on the Cossack’s head with a hammer. No proof, no positive ID, just the word of folks who would swear the Bandidos caused global warming and the Kennedy assassination, even though they didn’t form until 1966.

A couple of hours later, at the 322 mile marker in Lorena, Texas, just a few miles south of the I-35 and Highway 6 spaghetti bowl, Bandido Rolando Campos, 42,  and his father were on their hogs headed from Cowtown to San Antonio.

From “out of nowhere,” he told Officer Lorena Police Peter Rivas, 10 guys forced him in slow traffic into the barrier of a construction zone and knocked him off his bike.

That’s when about 10 guys jumped him and beat him with pipes and chains. Witnesses said they saw him laying in the middle of the road, face down, as the assailants beat it in their pickup trucks.

After the beating, when they arrived, police recovered a long black flashlight and a seven-round magazine for a 9 mm pistol dropped in the road.

As the investigation progressed, Lorena cops learned that a witness identified Cossack Roland C. Hawes, 30, a 300-pound biker from Bellmead with a bushy black beard.

He is one of 13 indicted in the Twin Peaks debacle released from prosecution by Elected Criminal District Attorney Abel Reyna when numerous members of his staff were subpoenaed to testify at a disqualification hearing about their coming forward to a federal investigator with information about his influence peddling, dropping cases for campaign contributions, and mishandling of drug evidence.

When Waco Gang Unit Detective Jeff Rogers, who showed up to testify at the trial of Jake Carrizal with no notes, no recollection of the specifics, and no way to give any really firm answers, apprehended the information, he urged the top echelon of the department’s brass to visit the local Cossack chapter to encourage them to attend the May 17, 2015 Confederation of Clubs meeting at the Twin Peaks Restaurant in order to try to make peace.

The recommendation received wide recognition from area law enforcement officials, as evinced in this memo authored by Dustin Losack.


Book’em, Danno.

So mote it be.

  1. Shortly after Wino Willie Forkner passed away in 1997, the Boozefighters successfully disbanded his old Chapter, leaving them to start up “Wino’s Crew”. Back then, the Bandidos were about the only friends they had. My how things have changed.
