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.

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.

P.O.W.’s Of A 71-Second War

Prisoners of a 71-Second War Bowed Their Heads For The Exact Time Shots Rang Out At Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015. At right is Sandra Lynch, who called for the 71 seconds of silence. (wearing yellow)

“…But today you just read that the man was shot dead by a gun that didn’t make any noise…” – Traffic, “The Low Spark Of The High-Heeled Boys”

Waco – Judy Bergman said it best. “These guys are innocent,” she said, and it’s true. Her husband “Scooter” of Desgraciados MC had every chance in the world to plead guilty, and he refused.

He didn’t want to tell that lie. He went to a political meeting and wound up in jail for 20 days under a $1 million bond before reaching a bond reduction to $80,000.

“Juntos Estamos” proclaims a patch on Scooter Bergman’s vest

Years later, the prosecution gave him a chance to walk away if he would just say he was guilty of assault, felony, misdemeanor, whatever. He refused.

“That would have been the first lie I told,” he said.

Then the judge ordered him to keep his mouth shut pending the production of further evidence in a federal trial of yet other defendants charged with other offenses tried in a court more than 200 miles distant, in a different jurisdiction.

Bergman recalled how he begged a deputy to uncuff a man bleeding from a gunshot wound to his arm so he could apply a tourniquet. The reply: “Stop your whining or you’re going to jail.” He did, for 20 Days in the Jack Harwell Detention Center.

And so they gathered on the steps of the McLennan County Courthouse to smile and shake hands and commemorate a 71-second war in which shots from battle rifles wielded by Waco Police and DPS agents rang out under the decreased muzzle blast provided by “suppressors,” a military term for silencers.

Sandra Lynch had people remember just how long 71 seconds lasts

A survivor of the quiet war wield by silent weapons, Sandra Lynch beseeched the small crowd of veterans to bow their heads for 71 seconds, “…so we’ll remember just how long that lasts.”

She and her husband Mike were taken prisoner under the same charge and $1 million bond after members of the Cossacks MC ran over her foot as she confronted them in preparation for a Confederation of Clubs Meeting – a political meeting.

Police charged no one for that vehicular assault on her person, just as no one faced charges for stabbings, beatings, attacks with ball peen and claw hammers, and other assorted mayhem in the months leading up to the blood bath that left 9 dead, 20 wounded, and 177 under arrest for the vague offense of “engaging in organized criminal activity.”

When the one trial held on any of the indictments came, Jake Carrizal found himself acquitted by a worn-out and bewildered jury who signaled the judge they didn’t need to hear any more evidence.

Truth was, they had heard no evidence of exactly how the Dallas Bandido President had caused the murder or aggravated assault of anyone – anyone at all. They said they were ready to go home; they couldn’t reach a verdict after 5 weeks of testimony by “gang experts,” medical examiners, and firearms experts who were not allowed to present their evidence because it would have been hearsay for an ATF Agent to present evidence based on a Waco Police report.

So much for that.

The only really definite evidence presented in those five long-suffering weeks was the fact that nine men had died, four of them from gunshot wounds from the rifles of three Waco Police Officers.

“Popeye” Moss of Sons Of Liberty Riders MC addresses the crowd

Now three men formerly indicted with an offense of engaging in organized criminal activity are charged with the murders previously attributed to police who fired in the name of law and order and received no true bill of indictment from a Grand Jury.

The rest of the 25 indictments for various degrees of the misdemeanor offense of rioting aggravated by enhancements involving degrees of mayhem and assault are familiar names, most of whom fired in self defense – or didn’t, as the case may be.

One shudders to think of the complication of the jury instructions that will no doubt result should those cases come to trial.

The verdict of the people who lived through the ordeal: “As everyone knows, the Federal Government has trampled on the rights of the people charged at Twin Peaks,” said Sandra Lynch.

Mel “Popeye” Moss, president of the DFW Sons of Liberty Riders MC, said in an introductory speech that motorcycle profiling is a terrifying prospect, especially when you consider, “This guy who pulled you over thinks you are suspicious, that you’re probably a criminal, and who does he report it to? Some Fusion Center way down the highway…Those are the people who organized this whole thing, the Fusion Center.”

The multi-agency task force Fusion Center is indeed a creature of the Department of Homeland Security, staffed with DPS, local police, federal agents – a clearing house for information of all types in the Global War On Terror, gang task forces, narcotics squads of all descriptions, and military responders from the Joint Special Operations Command to the FBI, CIA and the rest of the “intelligence community” so tasked by the Patriot Act since the 9/11 attacks of 2001.

Judy Bergman, wife of Desgraciado “Scooter”

Said Judy Bergman, whose husband refused to tell a lie on himself, “All of them (law enforcement officers )are the gangs, and you can see that the way they’re dropping these cases.”

It’s true about the cases. There were 154 outstanding just a few weeks ago. All that is one for the history books, now.

As the observers and veterans of the 71-second “quiet war” brought their third year anniversary meeting to a close, a U.S. District Court jury returned a verdict of guilty on all charges in a multiple count indictment of former Bandidos U.S.A. President and Vice President Jeffrey Pike and John Portillo in San Antonio.

Their guilt was proved up to the jurors by prosecutors who relied upon the testimony of their former associates, also members of the Bandidos, who agreed to testify in return for a guilty plea and the expectation of lighter sentencing on narcotics, murder conspiracy and other serious federal offenses.

All including Pike and Portillo, are yet to be sentenced following their allocution hearings to be held in the future.

So ends the operation one very aggressive and very effective defense counsel termed a “frontal assault on the Constitution” by Elected Criminal District Attorney Abel Reyna.

So mote it be.

Proactive Barrister On Third Year of Twin Peaks

F. Clinton Broden, (C)

Dallas – The only attorney truly “gagged” by court order during the continuing Twin Peaks saga other than prosecutors – in one case only – offered a third anniversary critique of the sorry performance by the State of Texas in this mass arrest that took place on May 17, 2015.

F. Clinton Broden has been the second-most outspoken lawyer – right behind DA Abel Reyna, who was also precluded from speech about the cases of 155 indicted, but chose to blab every chance he got. He became a “necessary witness” when he personally took charge of a police investigation of just how 9 persons lost their lives, 20 were wounded, and 177 arrested for being present and wearing certain colors on their clothing.

According to Broden’s arguments, which fell on deaf ears in the criminal justice system, that act disqualified Reyna and his staff from prosecuting the cases, according to the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure.

The key difference between Reyna’s pronunciamentos  and Broden’s pleadings are that the defense counsel made his remarks truly effective by couching them in court documents, pleadings not covered by the order of 54th Criminal District Matt Johnson because they are part of the public record, as defined by the Constitution of the State of Texas.

It is also part of the public record that Reyna committed aggravated perjury, a felony punishable by two to 20 years in the state pen, when he testified falsely as a public official as to his preparation of the officer, Detective Manuel Chavez of the Waco Police, as to his complete lack of personal knowledge of the events charged in a “complaint” that was non-specific as to the actual illegal acts of the accused. Each affidavit he signed was completely identical, and did not make specific allegations other than that the accused was either a member of the Bandidos MC or the Cossacks MC or a support club, and wore their colors when the police ambush of an attack on the Bandidos took place.

Hear his remarks about the miserable failure of the “frontal assault” on the United States Constitution by Abel Reyna here:

Thursday, May 17, 2015, marks the third anniversary of the Twin Peaks tragedy and the frontal assault on the United States Constitution by the McLennan County District Attorney. We must never forget that nine people lost their lives that day.  We must also never forget the horrible constitutional abuses inflicted upon hundreds of innocent motorcyclists for the past three years.

    Thankfully, this year has brought a sea change to the Twin Peaks cases.  Of the 177 people arrested three years ago, only 27 still have charges pending.  It is truly staggering to consider that 85% of those arrested that day have had their cases dismissed or declined for prosecution within the past few months.  Moreover, the only Twin Peaks case that went to trial resulted in an embarrassing repudiation of the State’s theory of prosecution and the idea that people can be guilty for being merely present at the scene of a crime and wearing a certain type of clothing.

    Broden & Mickelsen has represented three of the 177 persons arrested on May 17, 2015:  George Berman, Matthew Clendennen and Richard Luther.

 –   Earlier this year, in a shameful attempt by the District Attorney’s Office to save face, Mr. Bergman was offered a misdemeanor plea instead of the life sentence he was facing.  Mr. Bergman essentially told the District Attorney’s Office what it could do with its plea offer.  Then, shortly before the McLennan County primary election, the State offered to completely dismiss Mr. Bergman’s case with prejudice as long as he agreed to wait for the dismissal.

 –   As to Mr Clendennen, the District Attorney’s Office recused itself from prosecuting his case this past October and on the eve of trial.  The recusal marked the first time a Twin Peaks case was finally being reviewed by prosecutors outside of McLennan County.  Four prosecutors pro tem undertook a through review of Mr. Clendennen’s case over several moths and ultimately determined that there was no probable cause to bring the case against Mr. Clendennen in the first place.  Moreover, in a rebuke to the McLennan County District Attorney, the prosecutors pro tem made clear in their dismissal motion that the case was dismissed because of lack of probable cause.  This language differed greatly from the cowardly language used by Abel Reyna’s office in dismissing the 126 other Twin Peaks cases.

–   As to Richard Luther, the charge of engaging in organized criminal activity was reduced last week to a third degree felony charge of tampering with evidence.  That charge is particularly ironic in Mr. Luther’s case because of the fact that there is unequivocal video evidence of a Waco Police Officer attributing a pair of brass knuckles to Mr. Luther that did not belong to him.  In other words, it was the Waco Police Department that tampered with evidence in his case.  Ultimately, the handling of Mr. Luther’s case will likely turn out to be yet another embarrassment for the District Attorney’s Office.

VOTERS RESTORE CONSTITUTION IN A LAND SLIDE

    Meanwhile, in this past year, the voters of McLennan County voted to restore the Constitution to McLennan County when they overwhelmingly voted the incumbent District Attorney out of office this past March.  It is hoped that the new District Attorney will act swiftly to review all of the Twin Peaks cases and make the determination, as did the prosecutors pro tem in the Clendennen case, that a large majority of these cases were brought without any probable cause whatsoever.

TO SEND MESSAGE TO “SMILEY” PETERSON, J.P. PRCT. 1

*    Regrettably, the McLennan County voters did not have the same chance to send a message to Justice of the Peace Pete Peterson because, unlike Abel Reyna, Peterson did not face a primary challenge this past March.  Nevertheless, Peterson is the reason that almost all of the motorcyclists languished in jail for several weeks on unconstitutional $1,000,000 bonds only to see their cases dismissed three years later.

MEDIA ‘BLINDLY DRANK’ THE KOOL-AID

    The public should also not forget that, three years ago, most of the media was bamboozled by Reyna and Waco Police Department Spokesperson Patrick Swanton with multiple press conferences about roving biker gangs who did not come to Waco to “drink and eat barbeque.”  Media outlets around the world were quick to regurgitate this “fake news” and to repeatedly publish and broadcast mug shots of those being arrested without probable cause.  Nevertheless, now that the truth has been exposed, most of the media outlets that were so eager to presume guilt three years ago have lost interest.  Amazingly, even today, some media outlets continue to publish or broadcast mug shots of bikers as their cases are being dismissed and continue to use the term “gangs” to refer to the motorcycle clubs present at Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015.  It is truly unfortunate that, for the most part, the media outlets that blindly bought into the law enforcement narrative that was being spread three years ago have yet to look inward and start to own the part they played in allowing the prosecution to run amok in the days following the Twin Peaks incident.

VALUABLE LESSONS TO BE LEARNED

    Looking back at the past three years since this tragedy, there are valuable lessons to be learned.  First, it is hoped that this incident serves as an abject lesson to prosecutors that, in America, you are supposed to investigate first and charge later; not the other way around.  Second, it is hoped that the results of the March primary election send a clear message to district attorneys that their job is to serve justice not to seek to advance their careers on the backs of innocent men and women.  When they do so, the electorate will not be kind.  Third, it is hoped that judges learn a lesson from the travesty that was caused by JP Peterson in the setting of unconstitutional and unconscionable “one size fits all” bonds and that judges help advance the bond reforms that are being promoted around the country.  Fourth, it is hoped that the media learns that it is more important to get it right than to get it first and that the media learns a lesson from its zeal to spread the prosecution narrative three years ago.

    In the end, justice has begun to prevail in the Twin Peaks saga.  Nevertheless, justice was three years in coming and came at a very heavy price to many individuals and their families.
 

Blogger Proves Snipers Killed 4 At Twin Peaks

Point Blank, Texas – Three defendants recently indicted for murder may not be responsible, according to evidence released by the state.

Documents released by the Office of the Attorney General paint a picture of police snipers who lay in wait of an anticipated fight between bikers, concealed on a rooftop.

Sentinelalert.org Publisher Steven C. Watson recently published news of documents that confirm four Cossacks killed at Twin Peaks on May 17, 2015, fell to sniper’s bullets fired by two Waco officers wielding rifles with suppressors issued by the department.

Watson stops short of naming the shooters, but declared that documents ordered released by the Office of Attorney General prove that the rifles were fitted with suppressors and that they were fired from the roof of the adjacent Don Carlos restaurant, located across the parking lot from where guns fired and fists flew as Bandidos MC members arrived at the restaurant.

Video of the event reveals that armed Cossacks were waiting and instantly confronted the Bandidos.

According to the article published on May 9, “The narrative long posted on the Waco public website denies that they had any snipers deployed but evidence documents obtained by The Sentinel prove there were at least two snipers firing from the roof of the Don Carlos that killed four of the Cossack Bikers. That same evidence also proves the Cossack shot by the Waco PD Snipers fired within seconds of the first punch thrown dropping Boyett instantly while he stood next to his son, Cody Ledbetter.”

Testimony of a Southwest Institute of Forensic Sciences technician during the trial of Dallas Bandidos President Jake Carrizal proved that the rifles of three Waco Police Officers tested were the weapons used to kill the bikers.

Watson claims in his article that “All the charges were dropped on Cody Ledbetter within weeks of The Sentinel publishing the proof that there were snipers and that Boyett was shot almost instantly by a sniper.”

“None of the stories that we have read pertaining to the recent indictments mention snipers or that 4 were killed by LEO’s,” the article concludes.

A controversial newsman, Watson recently surrendered computers and hard drives in a search of his home that a warrant connected to a story accusing the local district attorney with corruption.

A Funny Thing Happened…

“Dozer” Cochran (C) flanked by Mel Robins (L) and Butch Moss (R) 

Austin – A funny thing happened to Abel Reyna, the elected Criminal District Attorney of McLennan County, as he made his way to earning a state retirement in a  third term re-election bid in the midterm year of 2018.

That’s the day in January, 2017, when a group of grizzled veteran bikers, the people who put him in office in the year of the Tea Party, 2010, got together following a session of the Confederation of Clubs and Independents for drinks in the bar at an Austin hotel and decided he had to go. A third term would mean he’d earned a place on the roster of state pensionaries.

Wrong.

They, the delegates to the Legislative Strike Force, the U.S. Defenders of the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents, would make sure his double-dealing, underhanded ways toward the biker community were repaid – with interest – because they are armed with the facts, and they weren’t having it.

Who would take his place?

Someone qualified would step forward.

How would it be done?

They would find a way; they always had done so before.

So, this is the story “Breitbart,” the on-line force in conservative politics turned down shortly after the double-cross, the ambush at Twin Peaks Restaurant by elements of the Cossacks MC and the DPS directing the Waco Police on May 17, 2015.

A member of the “Breitbart” editorial staff had told them, in no uncertain terms, that the publication could not afford to go after the story, no matter how revealing it may be, if they wanted to keep their advertisers happy.

But the proof and the documentation of just exactly what happened – the interior politics, the true motives of the gun-wielding psychos who turned a political meeting into a bloodbath – is stronger today, three years later, than it was then.

That’s why Steven “Dozer” Cochran, at one time the commander of the Legislative Strike Force and a Waco native with experience on two wheels on both the left and right coasts, as well as the flyover country in between, came forward on Saturday afternoon and gave The Legendary his story about what he saw and heard on that fateful day, and what he knows to be the truth.

“It’s all about the money,” said Dozer. “Twin Peaks was to  put the bikers in their place.

“The whole thing was to get Jeff Pike and John Portillo.” They are the former Bandidos, U.S.A., President and Vice President who are currently on trial for RICO violations of murder, extortion, drug dealing, and other predicate offenses in racketeering that constitute an alleged ongoing criminal enterprise.

“They turned the National Sergeant at Arms.” He is Justin Forster, who testified against the two in U.S. District Court at San Antonio.

“They caught him selling dope and they turned him.”

But in the months leading up to the watershed election of 2010, a black woman who is legally blind wearing her glasses or without them failed to yield the right of way to a man on a Harley and it cost him his life.

A repeat offender, she had been fined repeatedly, and incumbent Criminal District Attorney John Segrest, a Democrat, and his staff intended to let her get by with a sentence of deferred adjudication.

If she wasn’t convicted within a 10-year period, her record of vehicular homicide would have been expunged.

Dozer and his friends showed up at the McLennan County Courthouse to see just how things would go, and ran into a stone wall of uniformed Sheriff’s Officers who tried to deny them access to the 19th Criminal District Courtroom.

Through diplomacy and calm demeanor, they gained access to the trial, and that prompted a member of the defendant’s family to claim racism. At that point, Dozer recalled, Judge Ralph T. Strother ejected her, saying she was not welcome, to be gone or go to jail.

At that point, every biker registered to vote went for Abel Reyna, the Republican candidate for Segrest’s job. He won handily.

If Reyna forgot all that, Dozer Cochran has not. He’s been off the biker scene for three years because, frankly, “I don’t want to get killed. Don’t want to get shot. My family means more to me than anything else.”

Yeah, it’s that strong.

Naturally, like most events, Twin Peaks was no harbinger of completely bad news. Like most government stuff granted We The People, change is extremely slow to come, but there have been some, and they are extremely beneficial.

According to Dozer, the $18 million in the Motorcycle Safety Fund established in 2009 through the influence of the biker lobby has now been transferred to the Department of Transportation (TXDOT), which is empowered to make grants for motorcycle safety training, and for innovations in highway construction.

The fund is designated, and had not been released for any of its intended purposes. The Director of the DPS had spent some part of it from his general fund for the purchase of speed boats and machine guns to be used to patrol the Rio Grande for drug and human traffickers in defense of the U.S. Border.

Since that is a function of the U.S. Government, one of its enumerated powers, that practice was discontinued with the transfer of power to the DOT.

But there are other changes, and one of them is simply amazing.

For example, a gritty by-product of aluminum smelting which was previously thrown out as useless is now added to the tar in mixtures of asphalt compound. It is used in the pavement of the lead-in turns off of highways and onto adjoining lanes that run out into the flow of traffic.

It provides excellent traction for the small footprint of motorcycle tires on wet surfaces, and has so far been proven a successful safety agent for trucks, cars, and two-wheeled vehicles alike.

But the original question put to Dozer Cochran was this:

Is it true that he and his buddies in the gray-beard biker movement that looks after legislative functions had to fight some cop clubs in the Waco area? This is his reply:

Sorry bout not getting back to you sooner. I am in the process of moving and lost my phone for a couple days. Left it on the counter at the other house. I don’t know about a cop club thing recently. The only per se cop clubs in town  are the blue knights, the iron pigs, and the iron (arian) Circle. ( ) Are my addition. They were Iron Order but split off from them. They are the same kind of assholes, though. Of course, the Boozefighters and the Cossacks have law enforcement in their ranks. But I am not aware of any recent skirmishes. On a different note Re: indicting, what, 29 out of almost 200, but instead of murder they gonna try to get a felony rioting conviction? They fucked up 200 people’s lives for that. It’s like a fucked up outer limits plot just so they could get some dirt on Portillo and Pike for that useless US Attorney Luger. Ole Barney Fife (swanton) and company blabbering about how the horrible Bandido president in abeline stabbed 3 innocent Cossacks. Oh well he was found not guilty by reason of self defense because they were literally beating him to death when he finally got to the hidden knife in his boot and saved himself from getting killed. Oh well no story there just move on folks, there’s nothing to see here….then all this bullshit about the Texas rocker…. Oops Jeff Pike testified that they were given permission to wear it…. Hmmmm how could that be? All these bullshit scenarios they have pranced out to the koolaide drinking media for regurgitation on the masses to cover the fact that they were partnered up with the  east Texas Waterhead meth dealing, Local car theft ring, trailer burning and child murdering, Cocaine importing, friends of the DA who dropped all the charges so he could steal himself a free kilo of blow out of the local police property room and to disguise their relationship with the white supremacist Arian Circle who were masquerading as a friendly little ole motorcycle club (cocksacks) trying to fend off those nasty ole Bandidos.

You know the ones that have been around all this time and the last incident with them was what 20 years ago when that bandit shot that idiot at that bar on LaSalle for kicking his bike over… Of course there is way more to that story as well. For a criminal Enterprise that is pathetically anemic don’t you think? The truth is the cocksacks division of the arian circle had an issue with the Bandidos because they are 50 percent filthy Mexicans and allow retired police detective niggers in their ranks. Were on a mission to fix that problem… By God, by supplying that dirty coconut DA with cocaine so he would allow them to continue masquerading as a motorcycle club instead of outing them as the white supremist group they are and watching from the second floor window as they hung and burned the bandidos on the court house steps ( you know kind of like his grand daddy the Waco police chief did in the early 1900’s). That would explain his eerie absence when the shit started at Twin Peaks. Hell I got accosted by a fish and game officer in the neighboring parking who was sporting flip flops, shorts, and a Hawaiian shirt. Appearsntly qawinkidinkly shopping at Cabela’s when the shit went down…. Thank God he had his badge in his back pocket and a gun strapped up under that Hawaiian shirt… Prepared for anything like a good boyscout… So the game warden is qawinkidinkly there while the only person on Earth with the authority to stop the madness planned for Twin Peaks was qawinkidinkly watching them burn that nigga from the second story window. Of coarse immediately following the Melee he rides in with his white hat to save the day like a good ole Baylor alumni in old six shooter junction. So they trot out Lee Harvey Swanton ( the patsie ) to recite his well memorised misdirection supplied by that super motorcycle gang expert extraordinary Steve Cook, going on and on like the fucking idiot he is while the spokesman for the DPS (you know, the STATE POLICE) led by that other Motorcycle gang expert extraordinary Lt. Shwartz with a tip from the Blue Spiders (snicker, snicker) as he impuned himself while testifying in the discovery hearing and being in charge at the scene armed with his pole camera and undercover officers inside the Twin Peaks (remember in the frost report he had a meeting with the owners who said they were going to hire three security people for the event which he conveniently supplied. They were there undercover, one wearing his Cocksack cut, (ole red boots) and his partner 6 foot 6 300 lbs dude with red and gold wallet whip and support the fat Mexican tee shirt photographed minutes after the trigger happy Waco police who assigned their most trigger happy bafoones (don’t forget the black guy who conveniently struggled to survive which made it look like resistance while six police officers tased him at a gas station and he died from the heart attack brought on by that high level of electrocution, or the honeybun bandit who made them kill the motorist they plowed into chasing that “sorry mutha fucka” for fleeing and all over a 2 dollar honeybun… Then “showing that mutha fucka” by shooting him to death in the back ” we’ll teach these peasants what you get when you steal a fucking honeybun .. by God. And another lesson for the peasants and all manner of would be brisket stealers..  penalty.. shot between the eyes for thieving a hunk of meat so he could trade for some crack to put in his glass dick (pipe) and let all the peasants know the penalty for suffering mentally and threatening to shoot yourself and not having the guts to pull the trigger yourself. we’ll see we are here to assist and do it for you on the sidewalk in front of your apartment.

All the while the man on the scene in charge what wrote the report and misspelled every word over one syllable while using third grade Grammer like he used in his over 3000 hours of classroom training and having a double doctorate in masternegotiating. They should all have double doctorates, by God look at the efficiency. He negotiated killing the man because he didn’t have the balls to do it himself in less than one minute and without speaking a word. That will show the infidel peasants what happens if you don’t comply with our screamed instructions; in less than two seconds we will kill your uncooperative ass. So in any event It Shwartz makes sure the douche bags of WPD are there so they run amock and kill everyone at the scene they can as I observed them doing from the parking lot entrance and directly behind them. Funny how none of that gunfire aimed at them by those dirty clutch monkies Able was going to bury under the prison according to his post on his Facebook page. Miracles happen, those fucking clutch monkies were such bad shots they couldn’t hit my truck which was directly behind them if they missed but when shooting one of the bikers could shoot out a guys femoral artery while he is running around swinging a big six foot chain at a member of that dastardly criminal organization the bandidos.. I wonder why the guy shooting on the film that Jessie Rodriguez clothes lines, who then gets pinned to the ground by that 135 lb heathen gang member according to officer Fife, but was actually an honored Marine hero who put his life on the line to stop that asshole from shooting people. When he was kicked in the head and shot between the eyes by that wonderful and calm gentle giant and responsible loving husband and father. – Dozer, 5/12/18

Dozer watched the events has described from his position at the entrance to the Central Texas Market Place near Best Products, where he parked his pickup behind two officers armed with patrol rifles.

He was delivering the sound system that Paul Landers intended to use in order to discuss the events surrounding the motorcycle safety fund and other legislative priorities of the Legislative Strike Force and U.S. Defenders – the speech Landers never got a chance to make. Landers is still facing a rioting charge among the 25 persons indicted in superseding charges that replaced the original indictment for engaging in organized criminal activity.

He volunteered that Escondido Paul Landers, the Texas Representative to the National Coalition of Motorcyclists, is his mentor, a “role model” for his affairs as a motorcycle enthusiast.

So mote it be.

Info = Power; Power Is Cubed In The Darkness

In visiting with other counties having approximately the same miles of roads to maintain, I found it interesting to compare the efficiency of the unit road system versus the precinct system both in cost per mile to maintain and the number of employees to do so; the unit system was substantially lower. – Wayne Everett, Uvalde County Road Dept. Administrator, “County Progress,” May, 2018

Hillsboro, Hill County, Texas – The darkness of night, the ignorance of truth gives size and shape to power, while it conceals the faces of the powerful, distorts reality, warps perception of just how to get things done. 

In a rural society devoted to the study of the past – the area’s only museum is devoted to the Civil War – the activists chose to make a bold new move in the general election of November 6, 2012.

In a plurality of 61 percent to less than 40, the voters rejected the “ex officio” system of each Hill County Commissioner serving as his own road supervisor, and adopted the system sixty-four Texas counties out of 254 use, that of a consolidated road department overseen by a professional civil engineer.

This post includes the responsibilities of budgeting maintenance and improvement of the roads, pools all resources including equipment under one roof, and supervises all employees in one cohesive department.

The innovation lasted less than one biennial – doomed to failure by the intransigence of the five elected officials in charge of the Commissioners’ Court – the County Judge and each of four precinct Road Commissioners.

So much for one man – one vote. Who knows? Maybe it’s time to take a look at that old 3/5 of those in involuntary servitude, excluding the Indians not counted…You know, the one they fought that Civil War all about? Yeah. There’s a rumor going around. 

In fact, the pesky concept required adding a dash of confusion to the mix, just to keep everyone on their toes: Behold, this is what it looks like when you outsource the crunching of such massive numbers to a vendor of the kind of voting technology it takes to ride herd on way less than ten thousand ducats, iotas and simolians.  

Long before the election of 2014 rolled around, the engineer had resigned in frustration and was replaced by another political place holder.

The naysayers said the change in concept was for no other reason than a power grab.

And though the amount spent on information management by a staff of two technologists on call 24/7 has increased by 104 percent in only a short time, there is little information to support the fervent argument that the old ways of maintaining the roads are the best; in fact, there is little or no hard evidence presented that it’s true.

And so when we ran across the guidance of those who evaluate all this throughout the Lone Star State – and have made it a matter of state law – we found out that no one contacted seems to know just how that is done.

Like, who files the reports? Where are they stored? How does one get access to them? Who knows?

According to experts, the key talking point, the king pin concept, is information in the form of reports each “ex officio” road administrator – read County Commissioner – is required to file in the ninth month of each year, prescribed by a subsection of the State Transportation Code.

As one may see, the information contained in the reports is very detailed, and at a glance would tell any taxpayer, any rural resident relying on county roads to get to market, school, work – just anywhere, anywhere at all, just how much energy and time their elected official devoted to keeping the drainage, surfacing, culverts, and traction of the thoroughfares in shape to do something other than wear out tires and break axles and springs.

Check out the “new” requirement, number seven.

There is even a supplemental report required each ninth month of the calendar year detailing the “county energy reinvestment zones” where county roads have been widened to their maximum easement and modified as haul roads for the massive rigs that bring in directional drilling rigs, workover derricks, strings of pipe, loads of mud, the rigs used to sink injection wells, the earth moving equipment it takes to build the slurry pits and settlement ponds for fracturing techniques.

“Reinvestment” – hey, such a deal. You can hear them groaning in the board rooms up and down King’s Row, already. After all, it was such a big deal that Dub-yah and Cheney went all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to keep the “energy plan” as secret as possible.

Fracking was a proprietary technique of Halliburton – or so they preached to we in the nickel seats.

Could be, some are more equal than others. Who knows?

No one.

The County Judge is out of town, but will be calling in  come tomorrow morning. Maybe he will know where those reports are filed.

Similarly, the County Clerk is also out of town, at a conference or seminar – or something or the other.

That handles the Constitutional Officers, but what about their staff?

No information! Wait awhile!

Therefore, we of The Legendary propose to learn the e-mail address of the Custodian of Record in order to make an electronic request for those reports, to be furnished in electronic format in order to lessen the amount of research and trouble for the staff.

So, we know who is holding down the Chain Saw post these days. Next stop: Just who is playing the role of Horse Collar?

Stand by to stand by.

The floggings will continue until morale improves.

And, hey, that ulterior motive, the hidden agenda of the people who knocked on doors, registered voters, got them to the polls, reminded them of absentee and voting by mail?

They wanted some funding for a humane animal shelter that does something besides euthanize pets people drop off out in the country when they need to move along without Fido or that extra litter of kitties.

Meanwhile, the County Judge gets an extra $25,000 per year for hearing cases he doesn’t hear because the County Court-At-Law handles them, and got slapped down when he asked for another $20,000 in annual salary to top it off.

He even threatened to file suit for defamation of his character, high and mighty elected official that he is.

What a guy!

So mote it be.
