Woodway Cop Accused Of Covering Up Evidence In 2012 Arson Murders

Woodway – A ranking suburban police executive allegedly disposed of child pornography his adoptive brother had stored on-line while he was incarcerated in a State Jail. That material could point to the identity of who set a blaze that killed a mother and two of her kids and provide the clues as to the motive behind the killings. 

Videos of the molestation of a Bosqueville woman’s pre-school daughter and the arsonist who allegedly torched her trailer house in a fire-bombing that cost her life and two of childrens’ on February 16, 2012 became a possible bargaining chip in a federal investigation of the alleged murder in which fire became a weapon to rub out a woman who was seeking help for her problem with pornographers who exploited her child, according to a series of text messages.

Ashley Dawn Rogers had reached out to investigators who specialize in crimes against children in the months before she met her death in a fiery explosion of her trailer house on N. 19th St., according to former Lt. Kevin Fisk of the Waco Fire Department, the city’s lone arson investigator.

Brett Crook, an assistant chief of the Woodway Department of Public Safety visited his brother David at a State Jail, where David Crook, his brother by adoption, alleged he “tried to interrogate” him.

Asked why he believes the word of a man who is at present held under a $100,000 bond at the McLennan County Jail on charges of Sexual Assault of a Child since October 31, 2016, Fisk responded to four key questions.

1. Do the videos referred to in this message allegedly depict the sexual molestation of one of Ashley Dawn Rogers’ children?

KF: Brett Crook’s brother did, on multiple occasions, describe a video depicting such an act; several times describing, in consistent detail, who and what could be seen happening to the young child.

2. Is there a reference to another video that allegedly depicts an arsonist in the act of killing she and two of her children and attempting to kill her other child by setting her dwelling afire?

KF: I was told on multiple occasions a video of the fire, causing Ashely and her childrens’ deaths, accompanied the one referenced in your first question. During such occasions, I was provided consistent details of what one could see happening; as well as specific individuals present. The details provided by Brett Crook’s brother, for the most part, appeared consistent with descriptions provided by other individuals claiming to have seen the “fire” video.

3. Do you have personal knowledge that David Crook stashed these videos on-line, and that his brother Brett Crook allegedly destroyed or otherwise disposed of them?

KF: Any knowledge on my part would be simply based on consistent verbal admissions; as well as letters sent (by David Crook) to me personally; as well as jail letters he sent to his (then) girlfriend, all of which claimed the videos were safely stored online.  

I have no personal knowledge, or evidence to “support” any allegations regarding Brett Crook destroying or disposing anything. I can only reference David repeatedly and consistently providing me verbal account of having only told his brother, Brett Crook, the location of said videos; should something happen to him, David Crook, while he was incarcerated. David, upon his release, alleged the account the videos had been stored under, had been deleted and/or shut down.

4. Why did you not pursue this knowledge in an attempt to make a criminal case? 

KF: I actively sought such video evidence; doing so right up until the day I was relieved of all investigative authority and received, in writing, threats of termination should I be found to be investigating anything or communicating with any prior informants.

David Crook wrote to his brother Assistant Chief Brett Crook of the Woodway DPS upon his release from State Jail:

Not sure what your problem is with me but I do know you lied to me…you came to see me in prison…I know who was sitting in the parking lot while you tried interrogating me…well you and Kevin Scott can kiss my fucking ass…watch any news lately…well check this out you running your mouth about me has compromised my safety big time and you are real close to crossing the line with interfering in a federal investigation…so whatever opinion you may have of me or my involvement with Kevin Fisk or the investigation into capital murder, I suggest that you keep it to yourself…as it stands you are the only one I told where the videos were being stored…soon after they disappeared…so you think real long and hard before you speak to any other agency in reference to me.”

According to Chief Crook, his brother David was a source of credible and reliable information, unless he felt abused by a law enforcement officer, at which point he fed them false information.

Said Fisk in a text message to Crook, “…I will continue to stand behind the fact that I’ve found him to be far more credible and reliable than many people currently wearing and/or hiding behind a badge…”

All of this came out in an investigation of an officer safety complaint lodged by Chief Crook against his brother. In a text message to Waco Deputy U.S. Marshal Kevin Scott and Fisk, he said, “My brother is apparently back on drugs full time. Apparently he has lost his mind.”

In his text message of March 7, 2014, Crook explained that he feared for the safety of Bellmead Police Officers should they happen to encounter his brother where he was living at the Delta Inn on I-35 while under the influence of drugs.

In another message from March 9, 2014, Crook told Fisk, “Since it has taken you 34 hours to return my calls and knowing how may brother manipulates people I have a right to be concerned. I now know for a fact that you share sensitive information directly with him over the safety of officers, and I can no longer discuss this with you. You made the decision to ignore my warnings about his credibility…I have not and will not talk about your case to anyone, but when you refuse to talk to me and share info with criminals and threaten officers’ safety, I cannot stand by…You have a paranoia about everyone he has contact with now, including me apparently…”

In support of a complaint, Chief Crook engaged in a dialogue with Fisk in which Fisk told him, “I understood David to be upset with you and you alone. I feel his anger and concern with you to be justified should his allegations be found true. Essentially I did forward your text on to David…” He added that he did not consider David Crook to be a threat to officer safety.

Crook disagreed. He concluded his complaint by writing, “Fire Marshal Fisk has created a situation that puts me, my family, and other law enforcement personnel in danger…”

Fisk’s immediate supervisor, Fire Marshal Kevin Vranich cleared him exceptionally in the complaint by saying he did not violate the penal code as charged, and that he could find no hostile intent in what he had done.

“It has been determined the allegation of misuse of official information does not meet the element of the code (PC 39.06). There is no interfering with investigation evidence that supports the complaint. As to showing poor judgement, Lt. Fisk answered questions ask of him honestly and there is no intent to harm other officers or citizens.”

Accuse Waco Cop Of Covering Up Evidence In Deadly 2012 Arson

Waco – A Waco woman named Keri Schlasman, whose sister and two of her kids died in a mysterious explosion and fire of her trailer on N. 19th St. in 2013, forced a paradigm shift in perceptions at the Waco Police Department and District Attorney’s Office by making a simple on-line statement.

The event marks a radical departure in what has been a nagging dialog of lingering agony and disruptive speculation throughout the law enforcement community.

The worm turned a little before noon on Wednesday, March 15 when the sister of Ashley Dawn Rogers commented on a four-year-old news story that appeared in “The Legendary” describing just how a dispute between the Waco cops and the Prosecutor erupted into a full-fledged feud.

Within a few minutes, news of her defiant stand had flashed between people situated in offices statewide.

Quite simply, Ms. Schlasman publicly accused a female Waco Police Detective named Sherry Kingrey of acting to cover up evidence of just who used fire as the weapon that murdered her sister and her two kids. A third child escaped the blaze that erupted on February16, 2012. She furthermore accused the lady detective of having a close personal relationship with Delvin Maddison, a member of a prison gang named the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, who has been accused of committing the crime.

In the ensuing years, allegations of leaks from the District Attorney’s office have abounded, as well, and the resulting furor cost the Chief of Police, the Fire Chief, and the Arson Investigator their jobs.

Keri Schlasman U make me sick. I bet Mrs. Kingery didn’t tell u she was running around getting computers and cell phones with evidence of who was responsible for my sister’s death. Didd she forget to mention why she was running g around getting rid of the stuff she collected? Maybe u buy that shit and why are ppl called meth heads instead of human beings? U have some nerve to post this crooked ass detective as a saint. She is a crook. And I don’t care what story u paint cause I’m bout to paint a true one. She was one of the many crooked cops that hindered my sister’s murder investigation if u want to know my opinion. And Delvin is not innocent and im bout to get an attorney and find out who I can contact over McLennan county so we can weed out all these bad cops. If u keep making me relive this nightmare over and over again I’m gonna be real stupid about it cause I’m tired of my sister death being a big joke to u sons of bitches. And ima see about this crash shit. Yall got me fucked up.

Keri Schlasman Yall wanna keep running it in my face how these killers got away with what they did and that crooked ass police bitch gets a spot light as a good cop? Hell naw. Yeah I’m bout to get real stupid.

One day after Fire Marshal Kevin Vranich relieved him of his investigative responsibilities, the arson investigator walked into the office, only to be greeted by another fireman who said, “Why are you here? You should be out setting fires?”

Curiously, former Lieutenant Kevin Fisk, who wound up resigning in the face of a Civil Service Commission inquiry into his sanity after being accused of setting unrelated fires, acknowledged that the complaints aired by Ms. Schlasman are similar to those that have been corroborated by public officials who are in a position to know, but have shied away from voicing their convictions in public. They don’t want to lose their jobs.

Fisk was the Fire Marshal’s Officer assigned to arson investigations. He followed the case from the time of the fire until the results of his findings forced him to leave his position because he had been precluded from performing any further investigations.

He responded to Keri Schlasman’s comment in this way:

Throughout this lengthy, emotion-driven conversation, I note repetitive comments that may cause some people to question allegations publicly voiced by Mrs Schlasman.

“Having previously held the position of being the only sworn individual seeking justice for the loved ones for whom Mrs. Schlasman grieves, I have been personally approached or contacted by individuals from all walks of life having knowledge regarding the subject matter at hand. Such conversations took place with folks on both sides of the proverbial “blue line,” to notably include sworn officers, prosecutors, and elected officials.

“I personally note the overwhelming amount of collective knowledge, opinions, allegations, & experiences voiced to me over time, to support and corroborate the matters Mrs. Schlasman so bravely voiced. Bare minimum, I believe circumstances warrant this community demanding a bona fide inquiry into the matter.

“By virtue of taking a similar leap of faith and personally reporting ‘supported’ allegations of official misconduct, I’ve found myself having diminished the likelihood of ‘personally’ presenting cases for prosecution against those responsible for the murder by fire of Ashley Rogers and two of her children. That being so, it still does not relieve me of promises made to give this family no less than my very best.

“To Mrs. Schlasman, I applaud your bravery to openly voice knowledge of alleged misconduct committed by individuals afforded authority and power to ‘serve & protect’ members of this community.

“I hope and pray that your bravery will empower other individuals to come forward with supported allegations and evidence concerning this matter. I’ve been repeatedly told of oppression or fear thereof taking place, but reality dictates there is safety in numbers. If you call Mrs Schlasman’ friend,’ then do support her. If you can support or corroborate that which she alleges, then do your community and fellow citizens a favor and report it.

“A fella once told me, “If you have knowledge of wrongdoing, yet fail to report it, you’re actually guilty of helping to cover it up.”

“As my actions should by now show, that’s not how I choose to live!”

Witness saw shotgun slaying, Kinfolk fall

ANATOMY OF A ROADSIDE KILLING LAID BARE BY WITNESSES

Dusty Childress’ Kinfolk cut, shotgun shells litter road where a witness saw Wesley Dale Mason cut him down on Saturday March 5

Abilene – County Road 341 is a lonely thoroughfare through the red dirt country on this city’s rural northeast side. It leads to the landfill.

There, at about 9:40 am on Saturday, March 5, at least one eyewitness saw Wesley Dale Mason, 39,  a man cautiously described by newsmen as someone “with ties to the Bandidos,” alight from his pickup truck and with a 12-gauge shotgun blow Dusty Childress off his custom Harley-Davidson, according to court papers used to obtain murder charges against Mason, whose bail is set at a half-million dollars.

Seeing all this take place, the witness put his vehicle in reverse and sped away down the country road.

Lawmen found Childress with multiple wounds to his chest, torso, arms and a pinky finger, dead in a ditch where he fell near his motorcycle, his large caliber handgun flung to a spot in the undergrowth of nearby weeds by the violence of the shotgun blast.

A short time later, they found his alleged killer, bleeding from a wound to his foot, hiding in a nearby house on a neighboring private county road.

The short and intense gunfight took place just across the Jones County line, and, according to Lt. James Torres of the Sheriff’s Office, the killing was ‘biker related.”

As such, it’s part of an ongoing pattern of ultra-violent confrontations that have been going on for years in this near-West Texas Air Force and university town.

Looking at the record, one wonders just how Wesley Dale Mason has managed to stay out of the penitentiary.

He has been involved in a near deadly knife attack against a member of the Cossacks Motorcycle Club in which, according to expert medical testimony, he stabbed the man in the area of his kidney. Had the blade struck a major blood vessel, Timothy Shane Satterwhite would surely have bled out on the parking lot of the Logan’s Steakhouse where he fell on November 2, 2013.

Curiously, after an Abilene jury found the president of the Bandidos’ Abilene Chapter not guilty of cutting Satterwhite, something they could not beyond a reasonable doubt determine since they said the state put on no substantive evidence against Curtis Jackson Lewis, prosecutors dropped the charges against Mason.

Federal authorities in the Southern District of the U.S. District Court at Houston have alleged in a racketeering case that this incident, and many others, constitute a pattern of ongoing criminal enterprise, and furthermore, that it is a proximate cause of the bloody massacre at Twin Peaks Restaurant as a Confederation of Clubs and Independents convened on May 17, 2015.

Mason had made an arrangement to plead guilty to disposing of the body of yet another murder victim and testified in the jury trial of Lewis, who was charged in the attack on Satterwhite under the “law of parties,” in which being present at the scene of a serious and violent crime against a person, is evidence of guilt by association with those who committed the act itself.

Satterwhite was among the 177 arrested at the Twin Peaks debacle on May 17, 2015.

In return for his plea of guilty of supplying a dog carrier kennel and a dolly to move the body of the dead man to a secret disposal site, Mason received a term of 8 years deferred adjudication.

His arrest for the murder of Childress guarantees Mason will do as many as 20 years behind bars for that crime, due to the terms of the probation agreement, which provides that a probationer commit no further offenses, or in the alternative proceed to original sentencing for the suspended sentence.

If all that isn’t complicated enough, there is the blunt and unfolding issue of a confrontation between the Kinfolk Motorcycle Club in the Abilene area, and the leadership of Bandidos U.S. A., whom they blame for multiple ills, chief among them their ouster from the fellowship of the Fat Mexican.

In response to a purported acceptance of cops among their ranks, Juan Aguilar, Jr., commented, “We don’t take cops…and don’t let the Bandidos fool you; they kicked out people that were a threat to their leader…people who refused to be puppets and do dirty work! And the two people shot in Abilene were not both ex-Bandidos. An active Bandido killed my kinfolk brother in cold blood.”

An interlocutor named Tom Ball spoke up, saying, “Why would he do that without provocation?”

Brad Brehm volunteered, saying, “Because Kinfolk Motorcycle Club exists.”

Juan Aguilar, Jr., replied. “Because he’s a piece of shit.”

Amid the scatological badinage, older, more experienced heads are seeking to explain the carnage and vituperation, calling it an angry reaction to a “purge” of the Bandidos’ ranks by Bandidos U.S.A. President Bill Sartelle, who hinted in a press release to these columns that he had to rid his organization of certain bad actors due to their violent proclivities, actions that are keeping the Bandidos tied up in very expensive, very invasive criminal lawsuits in U.S. District Court.

“There’s not much honor in it, this calling the national club out. It’s akin to kicking a man when he’s down,” said a veteran observer of many wars amongst men who have been placed beyond the protection of the law for one reason or another.

“After all, the Bandidos are trying to walk the straight and narrow these days; they don’t need another crisis, another confrontation with guns and knives, now, do they?”

Wesley Dale Mason, 39, has walked between the raindrops for years

 

 

Out In The Styx, On Hwy Six

THE DANGER IS PAST; MUSHROOM CITY IS NO MORE…

I slept out in the open, just to let my mind run free. Last night I slept down by the ocean, beneath the boughs of an old oak tree.

I don’t even know; I don’t even know; I don’t even know if I could do the City. I don’t even know; I don’t even know; I don’t even know if I could do the City. 

There was once a place known to one and all who visited as Mushroom City, situated on a plain in a flood control district behind a military levee built by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, those friendly folks who brought you the Panama Canal, facilitated the two-ocean Navy, ushered in the era of PAX AMERICANA…

Which is no more. Which is no more? Which is no more…than past is prologue of the future past in tense awareness of that which is gone, now, but hardly forgotten by those who once visited.

Maybe there is some truth to the rumor that the Corps had a lot of trouble with folks fishing off the bridge. Been known to happen.

It is written, the bright young minds at the Texas Agricultural & Mechanical University at College Station, Texas, a component of the University of Texas System and an institution dedicated to the systematic military engineering of the planet to its very foundations – HAVE SOLVED THE PROBLEM of the psychoactive fungi known as Amanita Muscaria so favored by the psycheliacs of the future past so well remembered in song and fable, legend and amongst dancing fools of all who care to – DANCE!

The pastures of the Addicks-Barker Flood Control District were once strewn by the magic mushrooms as soon as sunlight struck the cow patties and the hip devotees could pick them.

Through an adroit management on an atomic level, the research biologists of the agricultural university just up the Styx Six bridal path of the iron monsters have solved the problem by altering the very structure of the organism to eliminate the psychoactive ingredient itself.

One may go to town on what one may choose, but the exercise is that of futility, for the only thing to be obtained is a taste of a once  wild mushroom that grows in fresh cowshit after rains and does nothing for the head whatsoever.

And then I realized the one singing about sleeping down by the ocean – beneath the boughs of an old oak tree – was me. It wasn’t a dream, after all. I had been there, all night long, all along. Selah!

So mote it be.

‘All Went Along Like Sheep’

WACO COPS, D.A. VIOLATED WOMAN’S RIGHTS THROUGH A LIE

Randall L. Kallinen (L) and Paul Looney explain their civil rights suit in a press conference at the U.S. Courthouse in downtown Houston

Houston – When it comes to the facts of the Twin Peaks case, these two lawyers know as much as anyone else in the world.

That’s because the discovery in the case is massive, something that is totally unusual in the criminal courts of Waco, where the massacre occurred.

Prosecutors and judges insist on defendants and their attorneys signing an agreed order of discovery in which the attorney may inspect the materials that serve as evidence against the accused, but they can only take notes during a visit at the DA’s office. There are no copies allowed.

That’s dead and stinking in the Twin Peaks cases. Paul Looney and Randall Kallinan know as much about what happened there as the cops.

The central fact of their investigation of the case of State v. Morgan English is simple enough. There is no fact involved in the case, other than the fact that the District Attorney and Waco Police had her charged on the basis of a perjured affidavit of probable cause, according to a $350 million lawsuit they filed today in U.S. District Court.

The affidavit of probable cause under which she was charged is totally false. The physical evidence of her clothing proves that she had no patch or symbol on her person that identified her as a member of any organization whatsoever, much less an outlaw motorcycle gang.

“They have the actual jacket she was wearing,” said her lawyer, Paul Looney.

According to her attorneys, Morgan English can no longer work at her chosen trade of bank teller because the stress of being involved with mass murder has devastated her confidence.

“How do you put a value on a human life?” asked the civil rights specialist, Randall L. Kallinen when a television journalist asked how he arrived at the figure of $350 million?

He learned of similar jury verdicts, he replied. She was charged, and though she was not indicted, it’s always a possibility because the charge is in connection with capital murder, which has no statute of limitations. Though prosecutors declined to pursue the charge of engaging in organized criminal activity, they did not file a dismissal of the charge.

It does something to you, especially a university-educated lady with children, a member of a sorority who has never been arrested.

She no longer works.

Why?

That’s simple enough, according to her attorney. People won’t hire someone who has been associated with a mass killing such as the one that occurred at Twin Peaks Restaurant on May 17, 2015 in which 9 were killed, 20 wounded, and 177 arrested on the identical charge.

The bottom line is ironic.

Had the cops declined to pursue the organized crime charge, they would have had no exposure to civil rights litigation, according to Looney. Their investigation of capital murder and aggravated assault would have been based upon facts, and facts alone.

The police intended to identify everyone present, take statements from them, and release them pending further investigation. But the DA, Abel Reyna, made a decision that everyone who was wearing a patch of the Bandidos or Cossacks Motorcycle Club or their support clubs would be arrested for engaging in organized criminal activity.

Morgan English and her husband William wore no such patch. The evidence turned over in the discovery process proves it, said Looney

“They all (police) followed along, like sheep,” he said.

The “Pigeonhole Building” at 515 Rusk Ave., Houston, viewed from the atrium at the Bank of America Center across the street, was built in 1961, during the Kennedy Administration. It looks like pigeon coop. 

 

 

 

 

Dispatch From A Biker War – Wolves Howling From the Fringe As Rogues

This Posted by Anonymous 1%….

In a recent Facebook post titled “Is there a new Sheriff in TEXAS???,” a Kinfolk sympathizer who identifies himself as “1% Anonymous” wrote:

“To push us, to try to control us would only become your nightmare. It would unleash the wolves that once guarded your thrones. The wolves that once gave you your strength and might. But now the wolves have a new master, they do their own bidding, and you shall soon see the wrath of our pack. You will hunt us, and we will stalk you and a few may fall. But the fangs and claws that once helped create your illusion of power and control, will now tear you apart. Piece by piece, you will be devoured in the name of our fallen brothers till nothing is left but a faint red and gold memory. And we will still be here. Once again at rest until the next tyrant awakens us. Our brotherhood and love will carry on for eternity as will our name. Some will call us friend, some even brother but all will know us for who we truly are. We are Kinfolk MC 1%er. The guardians of the old ways.”

It’s not clear who wrote this, or what it means, but it doesn’t sound good when you acknowledge that it’s got something to do with a recent gunfight east of Abilene near the garbage dump where two ex-Bandidos shot each other up and one died.

The low-level violence with hammers and other contact weapons that has plagued patch holders from R&G and Black and Gold clubs alike seems to have spread to those cast out, as well.

It’s no secret that the club that has dominated Texas for decades has been busy purging its ranks of trouble on two legs in the face of a mounting onslaught of anti-racketeering prosecution by the G.

There is no comfort that word around the streets is that this group of ex-Bandidos seemingly cast out of the tribe to the darkness at the edge of town has invited men behind the badge to join their ranks.

Bill Sartelle, president of Bandidos Motorcycle Club, U.S.A. in a recent dispatch to the media – first of its type, ever – said he has made moves to rid his club of the kind of men who will attract the attention of law men. Quite simply, no multinational corporation, which is what Bandidos M/C is, can afford that kind of trouble.

He has proposed an exclusive interview with The Legendary as soon as it may be arranged.

We await the materialization of his invitation with alacrity.

So mote it be.

Twin Peaks – ‘Perjured’ Affidavit Could Cost Taxpayers $350 Million

William and Morgan English, under arrest at Twin Peaks May 17, 2015

Houston – Morgan English is a bank teller who earned a university degree, a woman who went to a biker political meeting with her husband and wound up spending 13 days in jail on a $1 million bond.

She has since that day borne the infamy of being arrested in connection with brutal murders committed on May 17, 2015, her mugshot broadcast to the world, for family and friends to see.

For that injury, her attorneys are seeking $350,000,000 from a federal jury and $100,000,000 for each of the first 100 defendants who have suffered similar treatment following what the mainstream media has referred to as a “melee” and biker outlets have called a “massacre” that left 9 dead, most of them with police bullets in their backs, and 20 wounded.

They will file the civil rights lawsuit in a court of the Austin Division of the Western District of the U.S. District Court on Thursday, May 9, according to her lawyers, who are hosting a press conference at the Federal Courthouse at Houston – the famous “Pigeonhole” Building in the 500 block of Rusk Avenue, so called for its tiny windows in blank concrete walls colored a pale pastel shade of – uh – pink?

Cherry pink in the Domed City, the town that wasn’t already a seaport and demanded the Corps of Engineers dig a ditch to the Gulf?

Yeah, that Houston, as in “Houston, we have a problem,” you now, Space City, the Mission Control that made the cow jump over the moon?

The chief allegation of the federal civil complaint is that the affidavit of probable cause is perjured – a complete fabrication when it comes to the case against Morgan English, wife of a Marine who served in combat in the Iraq War.

According to an affidavit sworn by Waco Detective Manuel Chavez, but written by Assistant District Attorney Mark Parker of the McLennan County DA’s office, those arrested for the crime of having either Bandidos or Cossacks Motorcycle Club patches on their clothing – or those of affiliated support clubs probably had something to do with the bloody massacre.

It’s a strong case because Chavez admitted in open court that he had no personal knowledge of the allegations of complaint in that probable cause affidavit. None whatsoever does he have because, you see, he was at the scene of another criminal complaint when his supervisor called him to the bloody scene where the Englishes were arrested.

Why was he needed there, at Twin Peaks? Word around the campfire is that no other cop would do it. They had been investigating cases of capital murder and aggravated assault before the District Attorney took over and changed their minds,  ordered them to sign his affidavit.

Very unusual. Prosecutors don’t usually write affidavits. They either present them to Grand Juries, or they decline to prosecute the allegations as criminal complaints.

It all came up in a hearing on a defense motion to dismiss him as the prosecutor and relegate him to the status of “necessary witness.”

Why? Quite simply, he stepped out of his role as an officer of the court and acted as a policeman, according to their allegation. The motion is pending in an intermediat appeals court, the 10th District Court of Appeals, after the DA’s former law partner, Judge Matt Johnson of the 54th Criminal District at Waco turned it down. But that’s another story.

During the hearing in Judge Johnson’s court when Chavez testified he had no personal knowledge of the allegations in the affidavit, Reyna was then called to testify, and said he had cautioned him to make sure he had personal knowledge, that he insisted that he read each one.

When Chavez was then recalled to the stand, he testified that Reyna not only didn’t tell him any such thing – he never even saw him that day. All day long. All night, too.

A magistrate charged the 177 arrested that day at Twin Peaks Restaurant with Engaging in Organized Criminal Activity, a conspiracy offense, and in this case one that alleges their actions led to either capital murder, or aggravated assault with deadly weapons such as whips, chains, firearms, brass knuckles, knives – or the like.

Morgan English and her husband William English were not indicted. He was wearing a club patch from the Distorted Mortorcycle Club of Brenham, where they live. Distorted MC is not mentioned in any records of “outlaw motorcycle gangs.” Their colors are contrasting shades of blue and white, and they are not affiliated with anyone other than the Confederation of Clubs, a nationwide coalition of motorcycle enthusiasts who attempt to influence state legislation with their lobbyists, the U.S. Defenders and the Legislative Strike Force.

Mrs. English, however, wore no patches or other distinctive garb that would have identified her as a member of an “outlaw motorcycle gang” as defined by a Department of Public Safety manual.

That, according to Paul Looney, a criminal trial lawyer from Hempstead, and Randall Kallinen, a Houston lawyer who specializes in Civil Rights cases, constituted the filing of a “perjured affidavit” – a very courtly and polite way of calling the criminal complaint against her a stinking lie.

According to police narratives obtained in the discovery process of the criminal lawsuits, she and her husband arrived in a car just moments before shots rang out between bikers and bikers, and police and bikers. Hey, there is a LOT of video. You can watch it and determine what, exactly happened.

‘J-accuse…!’ – Emile Zola 

Some people are beginning to think of it as a snuff flick, one of those fabled motion pictures depicting the brutal murder of a human being, the kind of thing experts have labeled an urban myth.

But, then, there are the videos of cops beating mentally challenged people to death, and the Kennedy assassination, and Jack Ruby gut shooting Lee Harvey Oswald in the basement of Dallas Police Headquarters, and chopper pilots annihilating newsmen, and…whatever. One grows numb at some point and stops arguing about it. It is what it is.

During questioning, William English, the Marine, remarked, “Do you think I’d take my wife to a gunfight?”

Following a pre-indictment examining trial hard won and hard fought before visiting judge James Morgan, prosecutors declined prosecution.

But that didn’t do any good for what Morgan English has suffered, according to her attorneys.

Prosecutors and police from Waco, Texas, have never let the world at large know of their error in holding Morgan English in a jail so filthy that Federal immigration authorities took it off-line for detention of aliens apprehended in the U.S. under illegal circumstances.

Complainants alleged on behalf of the detainees that the aliens were forced to walk around in sewage in their stocking feet and flip flops due to overflowing toilets. They were moved to a detention center in south Texas operated by another contractor.

When I first met Morgan, she had been held in custody for 13 days. My first efforts were to get her released and removed from the suspicion of criminal behavior,” said Paul Looney, the attorney who represented Morgan in her criminal case. “Only after the authorities made that an impossibility did I finally decide there was no choice but to use a lawsuit to change the prosecutorial environment in Waco once and for all. This lady is, was and always will be virginally innocent of any criminal behavior that occurred at Twin Peaks. What happened to her, however, is a cruel and excruciating crime not of her own making and $350,000,000 is an appropriate figure for this case.”

After the shooting Morgan and William freely spoke with police. When Justice of the Peace Pete Peterson charged her, he knew or should have known that she was not in the category of arrestees designated as offenders by DA Abel Reyna.

Peterson, who was later recused from participation in the examining trial granted the Englishes, is named in the lawsuit, as is former Chief of Police Brent Stroman, DA Abel Reyna, and “John Doe,” who is believed to be a Department of Public Safety supervisor as yet unnamed.

Said Randall L. Kallinen, “This is especially outrageous because a perjured arrest affidavit was issued for a young lady who arrived at the restaurant parking lot minutes before the shooting began. Morgan English has now been portrayed all over the world as involved in a mass homicide. Her lawsuit is very different from others that have been filed following the melee that happened nearly 22 months ago.”

Says Paragraph 83 of the federal complaint to be filed on Thursday.

Plaintiff also seeks exemplary damages against each individual Defendant of at least $100,000,000–$1,000,000 for each of the first 100 innocent individuals and their families who have suffered and had their entire lives ruined by the Defendants’ actions by being falsely arrested and jailed, saddled with a unjust $1,000,000.00 bond, falsely prosecuted for, so far, 22 months and publicizing accusations of being involved in mass murder throughout the World.

Trump’s Troops Ready To Primary Biker-friendly Legislators Over Bills

State Sen. Konni Burton (R-Ft. Worth, Dist. 10) is facing a primary

Austin – Legislative Strike Force operatives of the U.S. Defenders say the word is already out. The bi-partisan sponsors of a civil forfeiture reform bill requiring conviction prior to loss of property will definitely face a White House-inspired primary effort to remove them from office.

SB 380 would require a conviction for a criminal offense before authorities may confiscate vehicles, property and money from those accused of an offense. Present law does not make any such requirement. Twin Peaks defendants lost their scooters long before they were indicted because they were unable to defend themselves in court. They were locked up under $1 million bail.

The proposed legislation is sponsored by lawmakers from both sides of the aisle, Sen. Konni Burton (R) and Sen. Chuy Hinojosa (D).

In a recent television appearance, President Donald Trump said that an unnamed Texas lawmaker’s political career is under fire from his wing of the Republican Party due to his opposition to Civil Asset forfeiture laws and their lack of a requirement for conviction of a criminal offense – or even charges.

Trump said something about how his career could be “destroyed” because of his political stance on civil asset forfeiture – on national television.

Word came back early this week in Austin.

At least one Senator, Konni Burton, is facing a primary challenge in the next biennial of the Legislature due to her sponsorship of the new law.

Here is what it would require: (click here for a video press conference from the Capital.) 

To date, every Legislator approached for their support on an anti Biker profiling bill has said, “I’m busy with the civil asset forfeiture bill.”

Code.

It means – “I don’t want to get primaried over this.

Bandidos Prez: Correct G’s Charges In Indictment

‘Fat Mexican’ logo is a registered trademark copyrighted by Bandidos

Jasper, TX – The President of Bandidos Motorcycle Club, U.S.A. directed an attorney from this East Texas city to demand a correction to a RadioLegendary story printed on March 4.

Bill Sartelle requested an immediate correction of certain facts he has deemed false in our coverage of the arrest of a man represented by the government to have been a national sergeant at arms of the national motorcycle club. “Downtown Johnny” Romo was arrested in Waco, along with his brother and two others in connection with a federal murder indictment stemming from a 2006 killing by gunshot of a man at Austin, Texas, who was allegedly trying to form a chapter of Hells Angels M/C.

Mr. Sartelle stated that none of the men mentioned have been associated with the Bandidos for the past two and one-half years.

In a press release forwarded by Wm. S. Morian, Jr., an attorney in this city, Sartelle stated:

The following people Johnny Romo “Downtown Johnny,” Robert Romo, and Norberto Serna Jr “Hammer” have been out of our club for 2 ½ years. Jesse James Benavidez “Kronic”is on non-association from the BMC for the same period of time.  None of these arrests involved Bandidos Motorcycle Club members.

Morian invited any inquiries by telephone, but at the time of this dispatch, which is immediate, he had not returned a phone call seeking an answer to the question. Was Downtown Johnny a member of Bandidos in March, 2006, when the government alleges he and his companions gunned down Anthony Benesh outside an Austin restaurant?

We have as yet received no answer.

Sartelle added these sentiments, that Bandidos are war veterans, hard working men of blue collar trades and white collar occupations, and your friends and neighbors. They are not a gang.

We of The Legendary never alleged any other thing. We here reported that the Government is on public record as saying they can prove all these things in U.S. District Court, as part of a case of criminal conspiracy involving an ongoing criminal enterprise, under the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organization (RICO) statute.

We of The Legendary News Service, an affiliate of the Texas Long-Haired Rifle Association, have nothing whatsoever to prove about the Bandidos, Angels, Cossacks, Santa Claus, Jesus, Buddha, or Confucius.

We gon’ keep on chooglin’ and hope this here will do the trick.

We reproduce Sartelle’s e-mail here:

 Recent events and media reports have made it necessary for me to address certain issues for the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, United States.

        The Bandidos Motorcycle Club, United States is an organization rich in history and tradition.  We are a Brotherhood of bikers, not a “gang” or criminal organization of any kind.  We are hard-working American men who are married, have children, who pay taxes, and who support their families and communities.  We are your neighbors, business associates, patriots, Veterans of War, blue collar and white collar workers.

        In recent years, we have made a concerted effort to improve our biker image.  Our ties with European and Australian Chapters were severed by us because of their behavior.  Similarly, we do not associate with other motorcycle clubs that we know are engaged in illegal activities.

        Regarding to the recent indictment referenced above, you state that the following men are members of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club. This is a FALSE statement; these men are not members of the Bandidos Motorcycle club and we request a correction to your story immediately. The following people Johnny Romo “Downtown Johnny”, Robert Romo and Norberto Serna Jr “Hammer” have been out of our club for 2 ½ years. Jesse James Benavidez “Kronic”is on non-association from the BMC for the same period of time.  None of these arrests involved Bandidos Motorcycle Club members.

        The Bandidos are no more a “gang” than various law enforcement motorcycle clubs or professional athletic teams that have players that get into trouble on occasion.

        As President of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, United States, it is my desire to clear the air on these matters and demand that references to our club be based on facts, not rumor, speculation or innuendo.  We are a brotherhood, we are the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, United States.

So mote it be.

Bandidos Natl. Sgt. at Arms Busted in Waco – fallout in Angels war

TWIN PEAKS PART OF INTERSTATE BIKER WAR FEDS ARE FIGHTING

Six Shooter Junction – Federal agents scoured the streets and netted a national officer of the Bandidos wanted for murder.

When they came for “Downtown Johnny,” he was holed up in Six Shooter, doing his thing as a National Sgt. At Arms for the Bandidos.

Johnny Romo, his brother Robert, Jesse James Benavidez, and Norbert Serna, Jr.,allegedly corrected Anthony Benesh outside an Austin restaurant on March 18, 2006, according to an indictment unsealed on Wednesday, March 2, by firing a bullet and murdering him. They busted Romo’s brother and the other two guys in San Antonio.

Why?

They tried to warn Benesh, but he paid no attention when they told him that his attempt to organize a chapter of Hells Angels M/C in Ostentatious, the town Texas has proclaimed terminally weird, would only result in their severe disapproval – the termination of his young life, with extreme prejudice. Texas is for Bandidos – bike, cuts, rockers and all.

At least, that’s what the U.S. Attorney’s Office says it’s prepared to prove.

According to a Federal Grand Jury, the Bandidos acted “to protect the power, reputation, and territory of the Bandidos enterprise.”

So the notion long hallowed by legend and rumor – that federal authorities including the U.S. military are acting to quell what they see as  an ongoing civil war between two factions of alleged racketeers, that of two private armies vying for disputed territory in Texas – is as true as can be and right as rain.

The so-called cases filed in State District Courts for an alleged event that occurred at Twin Peaks Restaurant in Waco on May 17, 2015 for engaging in organized criminal activity may be seen as nothing more than holding actions put in place to demand the silence and cooperation of 155 persons who have been released on bond – pending a federal Racketeer Influence Corrupt Organization (RICO) criminal conspiracy case indicted against someone else else entirely in San Antonio by the U.S. Attorney.

Hot, ain’t it?

Works real good as look-see pidgin, if you take my meaning. After all, would you want to be in any of those peoples’ shoes, especially the ones who did nothing more than run away and take cover from whizzing bullets because they knew they would at the least be held accountable as witnesses to something they didn’t really see?

The earliest trial dates obtained in the Twin Peaks cases were for April 17, against three members of the Bandidos, but those cases have been indefinitely delayed because the District Attorney, Abel Reyna, has released an additional terrabyte of discovery information to defense attorneys.

The nature of the information is unspecified. It may be further inculpatory, or it may be exculpatory. But a terrabyte of information is a huge amount of information, something it will take paralegals months to digest and catalog.

In another case, that of a Cossack M/C member, the Judge recently declared a trial date in December. That defendant will declare he is ready for trial, needs no further time to prepare.

That’s a long time from now.

This is the way of federal authorities in dealing with warring factions inside the borders of any republic in which military action is afoot, be it Vietnam, Colombia, Panama, Bosnia-Herzegovina, or Lebanon.

You raid the parties, take them to a regional interrogation or relocation center, glean all the information available from them, then release them for beaucoup piaster, francs, pounds sterling, pesos, escudos or whatever – and if they can’t keep their mouths shut, back they go inside – all day and all night – until you get around to their next court appearance, and so forth.

It was the announced purpose of the Special Operations Command of the U.S. Army in early 2015 that beginning in June, their troops would be in the southern tier of the United States, from Florida to California, for the purpose of giving their operators real time experience in dealing with insurgency as a training mission for future rapid deployment in foreign countries.

As it turns out, Texas had just such a case available, ready made and chili pepper hot.

The Hells Angels had been busy trying to organize a movement that could easily patch over to red and white any time they got ready, no matter what the Fat Mexican thinks about it.

Hence, the Green Berets’ attention to detail and their help in coordinating the Violent Crimes Task Force, Fugitive Warrants Task Force, FBI, DEA, Texas DPS, County Sheriff’s Office and local police departments with ongoing cases of violence perpetrated between elements of the red and gold and black gold outlaw motorcycle enthusiasts’ clubs in the Central Texas – I-35 corridor.

So mote it be.
