Free Waco Bikers Held On Frivolous Charges And Execessive $1M Bail

Bikers arrested by Waco police and charged by the McLennan County D.A.'s Office after the March 17 altercation between the Bandidos and Cossacks M.C.s have been held for at least ten days. A $1M bail for a frivolous charge by local and county officials for engaging in organized crime makes it impossible for those innocent bikers to make bail, especially when none are a flight risk.

Waco, Texas -  At least ten days have passed and most of the Waco bikers arrested on a frivolous charge for organized crime and an unjust excessive bail by a McLennan County judge has prevented their release. According to Waco Police Sergeant Patrick Swanton, more than 172 bikers including three women were taken into custody on March 17 after an altercation between members of the Bandidos and Cossacks M.C.s turned deadly as police who were monitoring the biker scheduled Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents (TCCI) meeting arrived at the scene and numerous shots were fired ending with nine bikers being murdered either by police or other bikers involved.
Of 170 bikers arrested, 115 had no criminal record, according to the Associated Press. All of the bikers arrested were charged with engaging in organized crime and a $1M bail was set for each one, even though they were not involved but were attending the TCCI bi-monthly meeting at the Twin Peaks Restaurant in Waco. The Twin Peaks lost its franchise due to the deadly shooting.
Bikers from throughout the U.S. have notice the excessive use of authority by the McLennan District Attorney's Office and a local McLennan County judge. Why excessive?, well it comes short from calling it a corrupt state of affairs in law enforcement within the Texas state judicial system seeking justice for the nine bikers killed. So far, forensic ballistic testing hasn't indicated who actually killed who and how many did the Waco police SWAT team killed?
One thing for sure, the bikers involved in the altercation that resulted in nine deceased bikers have not been charged with capital murder, but 14 Waco police officers involved in the deadly confrontation with bikers have been placed on paid administrative duty pending the outcome of the case.
Holding bikers who were not involved for ten days and violating their Constitutional rights for a fair bail, since none are a flight risk can only indicate the mere legal corruption embedded in the legal system in Waco and the State of Texas. The Waco biker incident has become a travesty of justice for Texas bikers, including nationwide biker clubs, associations and independent riders visiting the state.
Family members of bikers in jail are complaining the TCCI that some of the bikers arrested have not been given the appropriate medical attention, insulin for diabetes and not being treated for other conditions as well. Some of the bikers are sleeping in cold floors, no blankets, pillows and etc. at the McLennan County jail, according to family members.

Other biker clubs and groups that had gathered for the TCCI meeting at the Twin Peaks Restaurant were the Black Arms M.C., Escondidos M.C., Gypsy M.C., HonorBound Motorcycle Ministry, In Country M.C., Leathernecks M.C., Los Pirados M.C., Renatus M.C., Scimitars M.C., Tornado Motorcycle Club, the Vietnam Vet/Legacy Vets M.C. and the Vise Grip M.C.

The following nine victims were killed during the Twin Peaks Restaurant biker altercation between the Bandidos and Cassacks M.C.s in Waco, Texas.

● Daniel Raymond Boyett, 44, shot in the head. (Cossacks M.C.)

GOP Injunction For DACA And DAPA Won't Be lifted, Federal TX Court Of Appeals Ruled

The Obama administration lost an appeal to lift or limit an injunction filed by 26 GOP controlled states to stop the implementation of DAPA for parents of undocumented students and extending DACA for undocumented students.

Texas - On Tuesday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit for the Southern District of Texas denied lifting or limiting a lower federal court injunction to prevent implementation of Obama's administrative immigration policy of Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) and extending DACA for undocumented students. 
The three panel federal appeals judges ruled, "we deny the motion for stay and the request to narrow the scope of the injunction."
At least 1.2 million persons who qualified for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), approximately 636,000 have been accepted through 2014. DAPA would have allowed for parents of undocumented students to stay in the U.S 
Today's decision by the appeals judges clears the way for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement to continue to deport DACA students and their parents. The case will most likely reach the U.S. Supreme Court.
GOP presidential candidates viewed as anti-immigrant will most likely not get the Latino vote in 2016.

McLennan County Sheriff's Office Facebook Administrator Mocks User Posting Grammer

A McLennan County Sheriff's Office Facebook administrator mocks user comment postings on its social media account.

Waco, Texas - In a recent response to McLennan County Sheriff's Office (MCSO) Facebook (FB) account by users over the biker brawl at Twin Peaks has an administrator for the sheriff's department FB mocking their education and grammar used in posting comments. For a McLennan County worker or sheriff's deputy to mock users grammar multiple times can be viewed as unprofessional and doesn't help the public relations image for Sheriff Parnell McNamara and the department.
The MCSO FB administrator at times uses sarcastic comments when being challenged or questioned instead of carrying a simple dialogue with users. If the MCSO can't take public criticism, then why are they allowing users to post comments? 
It would be a benefit for the MCSO to replace the sarcastic and grammar mocking administrator from commenting on its FB account. A more professional administrator could be a fresh addition, especially someone who can respond to user comment postings without mocking their FB grammar.
The MCSO FB administrator could actually take a lesson from Waco Police Department Sergeant Patrick Swanton on how to deal with user comments on its Waco Police Department FB account, even when faced with criticism.
