DARK ALLEGATION FLIES ON SOCIAL MEDIA
AN UPDATE ON THE STOCKYARDS ARRESTS
FORT WORTH – A complainant in an internal affairs probe of the cops accused a corrections officer of theft of money from his property by name and number.
A source close to an internal affairs investigation of the way gang task force officers handled the arrests of Missouri biker club members on a whirlwind visit to Cowtown during a monsoon delivered on promised further documentation of allegations leveled against police.
The wet weather dampened the riders’ experience on their way to the Metromess. They arrived soaked to the skin, so they hit Wilson’s Leathers, 2225 N. Main in the Ft. Worth Stockyards – first thing.
Charge information from the Criminal Magistrate’s Office is impossible to obtain following the video supplied by Jeff Wilson of what went on in his place of business during the Saturday, September 22, shopping spree as the one percenters sought rain gear and wound up busted for unlawfully carrying a weapon.
The chief allegation by the State’s complaint are that as members of a “outlaw criminal gang,” as the Penal Code words the violation of 46.02(2)(C) of the black statutes, they are not allowed to carry a firearm in this state, even though they are permitted in the Show Me State, and reciprocal agreements with the Lone Star would ordinarily dovetail.
Though the cops are playing it close to the vest with documentation of their side of the story, the allegations of their harsh treatment of the defendants are leaking out piecemeal.
Fort Worth Police are the sole source for court documents that would give the details of the charges. Those records are considered documents of the court, and are excepted from the Public Information Act, Section 552 of the Texas Government Code.
One of the men charged as a member of an outlaw criminal organization came forward in anonymity to say in a social media blast:
I left something out of all my statements figured you’d get a kick out of it. When I transferred from city jail to county jail they were adding all my money into the kiosk system and they tried to say because of the amount I had that I was a drug dealer. I laughed because the amount I did have wasn’t even 10% of what I usually carry on me. Then because the machine wouldn’t accept some of my money because it was wet from our wild ride to Texas, they told me my money was counterfeit and I never did get that money back. The property records indicate that it was Officer C. Hawkins #74922 who did the processing of property but he handed off “counterfeit” money off to another officer never to be seen again.
Interesting. Did you turn it in?
No. I just now got to getting my money off the debit card they released me with and it popped in my head.
Can we talk?
It is in this bluff regard that the conversation is in hiatus at this time.
Legal talent advising biker activists who helped initiate the internal affairs probe have insisted their clients keep quiet as the investigation proceeds.
The true significance of the dust-up is simple enough. The entire United States, from Washingto to the state houses and every cop shop in every town, is in turmoil between the radical left and the conservative right over the possession and open carry of firearms.
Naturally, the seizure and search of persons carrying firearms for their personal protection is a sensitive issue, no matter one’s political posture.
To further complicate matters, demographers predict that by the year 2050, the population of the State of Texas will be 75 percent Hispanic. The two biker clubs harassed by Ft. Worth police during the weekend of 22 September hail from mother clubs of Hispanic origins in Southern California.
Jeff Wilson, whose grand daughter screamed in terror, “Don’t shoot my Paw Paw” when the cop in charge, referred to in the biker press as “Sgt. Steroids,” drew his weapon to cover the dudes he put up against the wall following a political tirade about coming to Cowtown to “flex,” voiced threats to put folks in jail over minor traffic violations, said the cops are taking the complaints seriously.
“Those boys no sooner got back home when Internal Affairs called them back and said to get back down here…They said this case is going nowhere.”
The complainants have documented “extensive damage” to one bike the cops turned over on its precarious kickstand perch at the side of the road. In another case, they complained of a hole broken in a saddlebag to obtain a firearm locked inside because of a balky, stripped lock.
The complainants in the internal affairs probe further allege they were not advised of their Miranda rights to remain silent, that anything they say will be used against them in court.
So mote it be.
