BOOZEFIGHTER JEDI – PROPERTY APPRAISER – IN PERSON

There are those individuals that are resilient in resolving issues through peaceful negotiations, tactful communication and ongoing positive emotions. Then there are those that believe the chaotic sound of a fist cleaving your face, the visual of your ragged limp body hitting the ground brings more enjoyment than the latter. #JEDI

Six Shooter Junction – George Horsley drives to Austin each day to practice his profession – that of a property appraiser with a lot of experience serving the McLennan County Appraisal District.

Those days are long gone.

He says it’s the best thing that ever happened to him.

Tomorrow, on Sunday, June 10, he and Gordon Harriman, a professional property manager whose great grandfather founded Crawford Austin, an operation that today owns “right at” 1,000 parcels of commercial property in the environs of Waco, Jerusalem-on-the-Brazos, will join us at RadioLegendary to rag chew the beaudacious efforts of the industrial establishment of this community to raise taxes – once again – by leaps and bounds by simply declaring folks’ stores, manufacturing plants, shopping malls, rental housing – and the like – is, well, ah, 17 percent more valuable than it was a year ago.

Residential properties?

They’re considered about 12 percent more in their appraised value.

Onwards.

So, what happened during the ensuing year?

The Attorney General, his staff, the Courts, and the legal establishment not only nationwide, but worldwide, handed he McLennan County District Attorney his ass on a silver platter when a jury of twelve split 11 to one for acquittal in one of the most ridiculous displays of poor judgment ever to grace a criminal court.

In five weeks of tedious drama, the chosen 12 listened in bored disbelief while Abel Reyna and lead prosecutor Michael Jarrett put on tepid, opinionated testimony by “experts” on motorcycle gangs that had not one scintilla of bearing on the question: Did Dallas Bandido Jake Carrizal “engage” in organized crime when he and his Chapter of 1%’er bikers rolled into the parking lot of a trendy theme breastaurant located in the roadside sprawl of a shopping mall for folks with a lot of disposable income at noon on Sunday, May 17, 2015?

The prosecution in no way elicited testimony that would lead a reasonable man, that famous fictitious man in the street whose sensibilities form the holding in thousands of cases recorded for posterity in the books, to believe that Carrizal, his father and his uncle, as well as more than a dozen others who were rat-packed before they got off their custom Harley Davidson bikes, did anything other than defend themselves against an onslaught of violence perpetrated by nearly a hundred bikers wearing the colors of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club.

How do we know?

The G made a snuff flick of the whole thing, a nearly stream of consciousness work of video from cameras installed by the Texas Department of Public Safety, dashcams in cop cars, and closed circuit video surveillance cameras throughout the area.

That’s how.

This depiction revealed that 9 men lost their lives when they were cut down by and large by rounds fired from AR-15 style battle rifles wielded by SWAT team members. and an additional 20 suffered wounds. Of 14 such rifles fired through sound suppressing baffles attached to their barrels, only 3 were subjected to ballistics testing.

One would be led to believe after approximately 8 weeks of courtroom drama including the recusal of judges in lengthy hearings, that the jurors just flat didn’t see the case.

It was the identical case filed against 177 persons whose names filled a blank at the top of an identical “complaint” drafted by Reyna and his staff after they snatched the investigation away from the Waco Police.

That cast Reyna and his staff in the role of witnesses, not prosecutors. That’s a no no in the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. You can’t prosecute a case in which you have become a “necessary witness.”

To further complicate matters, the Code of Criminal Procedure also makes no provision for superseding indictments as added counts in a previous indictment.

THE BOTTOM LINE  

Only 25 of the original cases remain in progress. One lawyer out of Dallas is representing 100 former defendants whose cases have been “dismissed” with the explanatory statement that while probable cause exists, the case has been passed over in favor of prosecuting others with a higher degree of probable cause.

There is no doubt that these individuals’ civil rights have been trampled to bloody mush, and the City and County officials facing the litigation have no means of indemnification through the normal channels of insurance coverage for errors and omissions.

Hence, everyone’s property is worth way, way more than it was last year.

As it turns out, the servers are jammed with folks responding with evidence they filed electronically, and intend to present to review boards at the Appraisal District during protest hearings.

Our story: We intend to present the dialogue between Mssrs. Harriman and Horsley on an episode of BlogTalk Radio, and then throw the switchboard open for interested parties to vent their spleens about this situation.

Ladies and Gentlemen, we of The Legendary bring you today’s edition of what is popularly known as a TAX REVOLT!

The persons so afflicted by the cops, courts, and tax men were merely exercising their right to assemble and associate with persons of their choosing.

The purpose of the meeting at Twin Peaks was simply to review the policies of biker profiling and the state cops’ irritating action of withholding funds of approximately $17 million raised from extra added user fees tacked on to annual motorcycle registration fees.

The faulty and deficient legal instrument used to serve as a general warrant not particularized as to allegations of complaint or probable cause as demanded by the Fourth Amendment fo the U.S. Constitution is identical to the type the riflemen who defended the United States of America against the occupation of British troops serving a similar general warrant.

That led to the “shot heard round the world” fired in the Massachusetts Bay Colony in 1775.

We had originally planned to air this feature on Texas Biker Radio News, but due to scheduling conflicts, we are going to attempt to produce the event through RadioLegendary on Blog Talk Radio at 7:30 pm on Sunday, June 10. Look for ads in Facebook for further instructions.

That venerable Chinese curse has us all by the ying yang, it seems. We are indeed living in interesting times.

So mote it be.

‘Nothing Has Changed’

The appeals process for massive increase in appraisals, explained

FRANKLIN AVE., FROM N. 38TH ST. TO 29TH (click image for full size)

HUACO – Owners of commercial and residential property in this city are facing across-the-board increases in assessed valuation declared by appraisers who offer no clear evidence to support their claims.

The implications are clear.

Taxing entities have mandated a new and onerous cost of doing business and cost of living for householders in support of a militarized civil police force that is heavily engaged in militant political enforcement.

Through a clever set of interlocking directorates of taxing entities and their representation by board members of industrial corporations on the McLennan Appraisal District, the local council of governments in cooperation with state and national governments operate under a nexus of control unparalleled in any previous period of history.

Various fusion centers linked by satellite communications provide up to the minute artificial intelligence and video access to any area in which they intend to focus a massive strike force of police wielding weapons of war and the tactics long employed by elements of the national security apparatus in overseas operations.

A test operation that took place on May 17, 2015 at Twin Peaks Restaurant involving multiple law enforcement agencies and paramilitary elements made up of underworld characters participated in a hostile raid on a political meeting of the Confederation of Clubs, a coalition of politically active motorcycle enthusiasts. They gathered to hear updates on motorcycle profiling and the status of $17 million raised in special use fees attached to motorcycle registration fees. The Texas Department of Public Safety had refused to release those funds for their designated purpose, motorcycle safety awareness and training. The DPS coordinated the operation at Twin Peaks.

The city dads found themselves in a heap of trouble. Money trouble.

Their police served a general warrant on a group of political activists. We The People fought a revolution over that – more than once.

At the time, the Joint Special Operations Command of the U.S. Army was conducting an artificial intelligence system through its fusion centers on the southern tier of states bordering Mexico. The manufacturer, defense contractor Raytheon, calls it Jade 2.

Hence, the military named their operation JADE HELM 15.

When the smoke cleared, 9 men were dead, 20 wounded, and 177 arrested, a number that eventually totaled more than 190.

All were charged with engaging in organized criminal activity, with the stipulation that their alleged acts contributed to capital murder and aggravated assault.

The charging instrument sworn by a Waco Police detective who later admitted under oath he had no personal knowledge of the allegations was drafted by the District Attorney and two members of his prosecution staff.

There was no specificity in the allegations of complaint. The only requirement to prepare the charge in any particularity was fill in the blank with a defendant’s name.

Bail of $1 million compelled very strict bond conditions once the courts provided reduction of the absurd figure initially set, in the words of the Magistrate, to “send a  message.”

A very small number of cases remain active under superseding indictments for a much less serious offense – rioting.

The rest of the indictments have been dismissed, some with prejudice, and in most cases with an admission that there is a diminished degree of probable cause in relations to others.

Taxpayers are facing massive liability for potential judgments in federal civil rights suits that could amount to multibillions of dollars in settlement.

Increased assessments on properties are estimated to factor 12 percent on residential properties, and 17 percent on commercial parcels.

There is an appeals process.

We turned to a property management professional who is presently involved in administrative remedy of his predicament.

A family business which  owns or controls about 1,000 parcels in cities scattered across the face of McLennan County, Crawford Austin is headquartered in it flagship shopping strip mall at 2910 Franklin Ave., one of a pair of two traffic arteries that bisect Waco north an south along the path of U.S. 84.

Is there a remedy? The answer is yes. The school boards, city councils, Commissioners’ Court, community college district – all are responsible for the selection and appointment of members of the McLennan Central Appraisal District board of directors.

The vast majority of those positions are held by industrial directors of corporations located in the jurisdiction area of the appraisal district. In most cases, the nominees of each taxing entity have not changed in many years. It is an unelected power base dominated by industrial influence.

To change that, voters could only change the elected officials in charge of those nominations. Innovators who have advocated a shakeup have met with extreme resistance from their colleagues.

How do professional appraisers hold that commercial properties are worth an average of 17 percent more?

Our man grins ruefully, shrugs and turns his hands palms up under arched brows.

“Nothing has changed.”

Gordon Harriman learned the McLennan Appraisal District’s servers are jammed with data sent in commercial property owners’ appeals

 

Hill Court Scrambles

County Judge Justin Lewis (R) set up microphones in the Courtroom

Get them in your movie before they can get you in theirs. – Ken Kesey, author of One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest

Hillsboro – Court recordings that can’t be heard, records that can’t be found – it’s all part of a confusing game that crumbles in the face of any honest and forthright request.

The Hill County Commissioners’ Court is scrambling to maintain an even strain.

For instance, in a special meeting called for 8:30 am on Tuesday, May 29, County Judge Justin Lewis corrected a chronic problem with videos provided by the Emergency Management Coordinator in which the audio portion is inaudible.

He set up an impressive bevy of goose-necked condenser microphones on tables he personally arranged previous to the meeting.

The innovation revealed an interesting set of facts. First order of business included a re-bid of a single entry in which the purchasers sought prices on auto tires.

Judge Lewis said it didn’t seem quite right, so one of the County Commissioners immediately moved for a renewed request for proposals. The motion carried unanimously.

The tribunal set a new speed limit on three miles of newly paved County Roads of 35 miles per hour, as requested by the contractor in order to cut down on wear and tear on the new surface.

And so, it came as some kind of surprise when The Legendary renewed a request for annual reports required by state law of improvements and maintenance to the road system by the Road Commissioners acting as ex officio supervisors.

No one has heard of any such thing, including the Commissioners. A public information act request pending for many days is still active with the County Clerk.

Precinct 1 County Commissioner Montgomery said he will look into the request. He said he has never known of any such requirement.

The matter is part and parcel of a shift from the traditional method of running the road commission voters demanded in a special election that carried the question 61% to 39%. County Commissioners scrapped the resulting change to a “unit system” of operation in which a civil engineer is responsible for all improvement and maintenance after one biennial through yet another ballot question.

In this audio, one may hear the action taken by the Court through a series of motions:

And the floggings will continue until morale improves.

He may have been disobedient. Remember, nothing is history until it goes down on paper. He once said, “It occurs to me, all the guys who got out of the Army played be-bop.”

Sheriff Fuels, Cost-Plus = Double – Both Bids Apply

Hillsboro – County Judge Justin Lewis says 42% of the entire County budget is devoted to the Jail -debt service, staffing, care and feeding – the works.

When the public learned that the Texas Commission on Jail Standards had rated the operation substandard in a report generated after two inmates serving as trusties walked through a hole in the fence, a fuels merchant named Chad Gray reacted in public comments on a Facebook page, Hill County Breaking News.

He appeared recently in a Commissioners’ Court meeting to say that he suspects Sheriff Rodney Watson has retaliated against his criticism by forbidding his Officers to fuel their vehicles at a card lock filling station he operates.

Gray learned that the new way is to use a similar system at stations elsewhere provided by a competitor whose cost plus contracts provide for a provide for a profit margin that is 50 percent higher in some cases and as much as 100 percent in others.

As it develops, both systems are approved by the county’s bidding process, something Gray represented to the court is considered illegal, in the opinion of certain learned attorneys he has consulted.

For some reason, the video recording of these meetings is done by Hill County Emergency Management. Their logo is assigned by the Department of Homeland Security – FEMA. They are part of the National Security apparatus of this nation, the United States of America.

As a result, you cannot hear what Judge Lewis is saying, though it is possible to hear the person making a “presentation.”

That would be Mr. Gray, who was so corrected by the Sheriff and Judge Lewis for his outburst about the jail failure in the Texas Commission on Jail Standards report previously reported in these columns and elsewhere.

Naturally, anything any of We The People say can and will be used against us in a Court of Law. Federal agents’ remarks need not be truthful, but if a citizen utters a falsehood in their dealings with federal officials, that is a felony offense.

I put it to you, dear hearts. Is the Constitutional Court of the County of Hill, State of Texas, not a court of law? That’s why it’s called Commissioners’ Court.

We shall return.

So mote it be.

Listen to the story: USE EARPHONES

THAT WAS THE WEEK THAT WAS – UNTIL THE HAMMER DROPPED IN DISTRICT COURT

Philip Nolan, Jr.

Hill County – Wearing a red t-shirt, blue jeans and cowboy boots, a frantic man walked the rural road looking for his kids. He truly believed someone had spirited them away.

Philip Nolan, Jr., a 37-year-old man who is 5-3 and weighs in at about 140-50, strode along County Road 1321 with a shovel in his hands on Tuesday, May 15, at about 8 a.m.

He was in a total panic, according to his neighbor, Michael Shane Baxter, who lives just a few doors down from Nolan in the 700 block of CR 1321.

Nolan was convinced his kids were not on their way to school, that they were missing, and he demanded Baxter cruise the rural road in search of them, according to an affidavit written by Deputy David Gray.

Baxter told Gray and Sgt. Orban that he drove the road as far as the pavement and when he got back to his house, he found Nolan on his property, in the carport, where he demanded to look in the trunk of Baxter’s car for his children.

According to Baxter, he had not found Nolan’s kids, but he did find a strange black car up the road.

When Deputy Gray found Nolan at Baxter’s house, he noted that, “He was irrational, agitated, and paranoid. I have seen other individuals exhibit similar behavior when under the influence of methamphetamine.”

Gray concluded, “He was detrmined to be a danger to himself and others and was arrested for Public Intoxication. He admitted to Sgt. Orban that he had taken meth two days earlier.”

An affidavit written by Deputy Kalyn Pavlas Caldara observed that Nolan had called earlier to report his kids were missing; while enroute, they received word he was at his neighbor’s house accusing him of hiding them.

When she and Deputy Castro arrived, they listened while Nolan “started telling me how he heard knocking on Baxter’s vehicle and wanted the trunk opened because his kids were in there.”

Baxter opened the trunk; Nolan wouldn’t believe the kids weren’t in there until Baxter took items out to show him there were no kids there. He also refused to believe the officers when they told him Dispatch had confirmed through Hillsboro Elementary and Intermediate schools that his kids were safe and in attendance.

Baxter demanded the cops arrest Nolan for trespassing. They booked him into the Hill County Jail for that offense and public intoxication. The magistrate set his bond at $1,000.

Two days later, on Thursday, May 17 around 9 a.m., corrections staff called for backup to put Nolan in a restraint chair “for his safety” after “he had injured himself by repeatedly striking his forehead against the metal drain in the floor of a holding cell,” according to a statement written by Officer Scott Robinson.

Inmate Nolan struck his head against the drain with enough force that it broke the skin on his forehead, resulting in his face being covered in blood.”

A nurse tended his wound where he was strapped into the restraint chair, and “Nolan continued to act in a manner consistent with being under the influence of narcotics, specifically methamphetamine,” the officer wrote. “He appeared to be oblivious of his self inflicted injury, was speaking irrationaly and did not appear to be aware of his surroundings.”

On Sunday, May 20, Nolan obtained his freedom on bond, and his parents took him to Hillcrest Hospital in Waco, where he received treatment for his injuries. The hospital released him on Monday, May 21.

Delinda Nolan Cargill said she thought was going to die

NONE OF THE THESE EVENTS HAPPENED IN A VACUUM.

According to investigators, Nolan spent the weekend alone at home while his wife and kids were out of town. Seeking drugs to ease his back pain, he went to Gholson in McLennan County and obtained a marijuana joint when he couldn’t find pain medication.

Insiders believe the cigarette may have been laced with a strong narcotic.

His family lives in the area, and they have been facing a lot of trauma for the past year.

The end to this family drama played out in a Waco District Court on Thursday, May 24, when Nolan’s sister Delinda addressed her husband Donald Cargill in a victim impact statement following his guilty plea for multiple felonies.

According to published reports, she said, “You robbed everything from my life.”

Cargill faced prosecution for aggravated domestic abuse, drug possession and a gun charge when he was arrested a year ago in May, 2017.

He rode the docket for a year and intended to go to trial in June, but opted for a guilty plea in return for a 50-year sentence instead of a possible life term had a jury convicted him for the multiple offenses for which the Grand Jury returned an indictment.

Just An Ordinary Story About The Way Things Go

Hillsboro – Let’s put it this way, on a general no-name, no-knock warrant obtained instanter in the middle of a night-riding black mare.

My man is a soldier who toted a brace of pistols for the Provost Marshal while overseas in the service of his country, and did some of the same kind of work in a municipality when he returned home.

Somehow, he injured his spine and suffers from chronic pain, which is medicated with opioid preparations from the VA pharmacy. That relief is not always available. due to various well-known considerations and professional constraints.

And, so, he sought solace in the stinking fumes of the smoking yerba buena.

Somehow, the chaps from 911 became involved and he found himself imprisoned in the County Jail for a time that ended Sunday evening when his people bonded him out of the lockup and they adjourned to an out-of-town hospital where he reportedly passed blood in his urine. His body is covered with bruises.

He reportedly received no medical attention while at the jail, nor was he allowed to contact family, a lawyer, or anyone else. He was alone and suffering from what he thought were the effects of dusted grass – just flat-out tripping.

Naturally, he’s in fear for his life and will not even give his right name or age so the official record may be consulted.

SCHOFIELD, THE NAME, THE CAVALRY’S BEST INNOVATION

Obedience The Key In Police Stops, Cops Say

Reporting by Brent McCain, Story by Legendary Jim

Teague, TX – Cops are scared to death of armed motorists. It’s the truth. Most hassles are about the gun; so, let’s just cut to the chase. Where is it?

The gun.

Police charged this motorist with unlawfully carrying a weapon.

He didn’t carry it far. He stepped out of the car, as he was told to do. Then they cuffed him once they found the gun. One, two steps at the most, and, like, there it was!

Although the total time devoted to arresting this man exceeds an hour and a half, this half-hour video segment could be worth a motorist’s time to watch carefully for the first few minutes. They tell the story. The rest of the street drama is highly repetitive.

At a little after 2 am on April 1 of this year, the Teage Police pulled the driver over for excessive speed – more than 60 miles per hour in a 45 mph zone.

When a female officer approached his vehicle, she asked him for his driver’s license and proof of insurance.

The ensuing hassle is based on what a male officer who came on the scene later termed his unwillingness to behave in an obedient fashion.

The trouble started when motorist being detained asked the female officer just who had pulled in behind her. She said it was another officer. It turned out to be a male officer, her backup.

The motorist gave the officer his license, but had trouble locating his insurance card.

When the cops asked him to step out of the car, the male officer asked “Where is the gun, man?” First time that came up, right off the bat. Apropos nothing so much, just where is the gun?

The speeder said it was in the car.

It was in his back pocket.

That’s not illegal until you are out of the car; if you have a concealed carry permit, it’s still okay.

Then there was the hassle over whether he said they could search his car. First he said yes; then he changed his mind.

That led the male cop to say he thought he might be messed up because of medication. All the facts surrounding that have been redacted. Apparently, there was no particular evidence regarding any of that.

When they searched, they found an AR-15 style M4 patrol rifle with multiple magazines and a supply of green tip 5.53 ammo, which the Chief of the Teague Police termed armor piercing, though it’s not classified that way.

His argument to Legendary Reporter Brent McCain, “Marijuana pipes aren’t illegal until you smoke marijuana in them.”

The upshot is this: The DA refused to prosecute the case. He wasn’t drunk, and they did no blood analysis.

The matter is likely to see federal court scrutiny due to an illegal arrest and a denial of civil rights.

Do we really need all this? Speeding is a misdemeanor; you receive a court summons, and either you show up, or you don’t.

Insurance? All that is on the computer.

Gun in a hip pocket?

That’s legal as long as you’re in the car. If a cop tells you to get out of the car, it could be a communication problem if he doesn’t know you have a gun. Maybe. Maybe not.

It could also be an obedience problem.

Say wha’?

The matter is likely to see the inside of a courtroom as a federal civil rights case. An Austin law firm is handling the affair.

Do we really need this?

Like, all this?

No, but it’s time-consuming, tedious, and, well, very dangerous to POP (piss off police).

We probably need the man’s name, all that, but the key to this is his Cause Number, the one that would go on a District Court File. He doesn’t have one. Can’t tell the players without a number.

This brief recording speaks volumes about the logic of aggressive, proactive police work and the determination to file serious charges. Pay close attention to what the Chief of Police tells an inquiring reporter. It speaks volumes about power relations with the cops, and the gender politics in dealing with female police officers.

Conversation begins at 2:03

And the floggings will continue until morale improves.

So mote it be.

Police Documents Of Bogus Murder Charge

BULLETIN: SOME ASPECTS OF THIS ACCOUNT ARE SERIOUSLY DISPUTED BY MS. EMILY SCHMALL OF THE AP. SEE COMMENTS

Click Image For Full Size

Point Blank, Texas – A bevy of documents obtained through order of the Attorney General has prompted a serious legal challenge to murder indictments against three men arrested at Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015.

AP Staff Writer Emily Schmall has covered Twin Peaks extensively

In an Associated Press article reprinted in a news magazine, Staff Writer Emily Schmall details the facts of just how shaky McLennan DA Abel Reyna’s case against these individuals really is.

The documents were obtained by Steven C. Watson, the publisher of the Sentinelalert.org news blog.

This is his summary of the material:

WACO 5/17/2018  ANNIVERSARY OF TWIN PEAKS BIKER SHOOTING

ASSOCIATED PRESS PULLS UP SHY OF OUTING CORRUPT DA

In an article linked to the headline above, much is attributed to the Associated Press reporter, Emily Schmall who has been writing about the Waco Twin Peaks case as long as The Sentinel Alert has, May 18, 2015.  The quote below is from the story:

“Prosecutors have charged Walker in the death of Richard Kirschner, a Cossack. But police records previously reviewed by the AP show a Waco SWAT officer, Michael Bucher, shot Kirschner twice with his rifle. An autopsy report says there were three gunshot wounds. Walker’s pistol was later recovered from a pile of weapons police reports and dashcam footage shows were tossed into the back of Bucher’s vehicle by officers. The ATF wasn’t able to positively identify any fingerprints on Walker’s pistol.” – Ms. Schmall’s lead 

     Richard ‘Bear’ Kirschner died from the sniper shot to his right thigh, period.  The left knee wound, as any can see on video, made a two inch round blood spot on his pants while the right thigh wound had drenched his entire pants leg and the ground underneath Bear within one minute of him being shot by the sniper.  What Emily Schmall is not mentioning in her article is that she has conversed with The Sentinel a few times and reviewed our evidentiary spread sheet that we provided to her to help clarify the forensic numbering system so you can make sense of the reports.  We proved their were snipers but no one wants to use that term when discusing the biker deaths EXCEPT The Sentinel.

MAY 15/2018

WACO PD LAYS FALSE BLAME – DUCKS THE TRUTH AGAIN

   Charges of murder have been leveled against a Bandido biker who was involved in the rioting at the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas on May 17th, 2015.  The victim was Big ‘Bear’ Kirschner who was a Cossak biker and a Dart afficinado from the Dallas area.  The video shows Bear and two Bandido bikers fighting in the parking lot after shots rang out and bikers began dying.  Bear can be seen in the video backing the two up striking them with some hand held weapon until he is shot through the left buttock and right thigh by LEO sniper fire from the roof of the Don Carlos.  Bear can be seen hobbling to the base of the Twin Peaks sign where he laid and bled extensively from those wounds until he was moved to the hospital where he later died. 

    The spreadsheet above was compiled based on the autopsy report and photos and the forensics ballistic report that is part of the evidence discovery package.   The light brown color code shows all the shots fired by one of the Waco PD LEO sniper rifles.  It shows that the fatal wounds were inflicted by the sniper, not the Bandido.   The top line of entry shows that the .38 caliber pistol round the Bandido is accused of firing was removed from the left knee wound.  The autopsy report only notes muscle and bone damage from the knee wound.  The video show plaily that the massive bleeding was caused by the buttock and right thigh wound inflicted by the Waco PD sniper.  The manner of death was ruled Homocide.

     Though involved in the intelligence gathering before the event and called in for backup after the incident, none of the DPS Troopers were involved in the shooting.  All the snipers were Waco PD officers.  

    The corrupt DA Able Reyna quietly had the Grand Jury exonerate the officers who fired from sniper positions while totally denying they were deployed as snipers or fired before calls for help came in.   According to the AP reporters narrative, she was told by Waco PD that the bikers pistol round killed Big Bear.  That is just another lie formented by the Waco PD and lame duck Able Reyna. 

And the floggings will continue until morale improves.

So mote it be.
