    It was at knock-off hooters though, surely they'd be too distracted to try to kill each other...

    Is it the twin peaks....or is it the deep valley?


    Deep thoughts huh- right along the lines of: What is the sound of a tree falling in an unihabited forest?

    It's called the "Twin Peaks" but maybe they should rename it "Wieners in the Pokey?"

Basically, most of the initial generations of total criminal outlaws are either dead (shoot outs, crashes and hard living) or serving decades in prison. That does not mean that the current generation of bikers is warm and fuzzy, just that statistically most are not career criminals.



    I am guessing mundane rather than criminal as most of these guys are not criminals in the true sense of the word (of course not being a criminal does automatically mean one is a "role model").

    As a side note, I have read that one of the clubs / gangs has been beefing up their numbers by recruiting from inner city gangsters. Unlike the older membership who have a sense of self control, these new recruits may well have brought a mentality that turned fist fights into what... fire fights?


    That's all great and all but there's that old dilemma of "Good guys don't hang out with bad guys" issue with bikers. Most of them hang around enough individuals that are involved in drug dealing or other crime that when bikers are shot I don't think anybody is worried whether it was the "Less bad bikers or the bad ones" that were killed. In my and many other general publics view you're no better if you affiliate with drug dealers and the like.

    My understanding is that this was a planned Coalition event but a few participants changed their rocker from their county name to "TEXAS". I don't know if that's actually the case or what club it was (I could guess) but stuff like that is bound to cause trouble.

    Evidently, members of the The Bandidos club / gang (Texas founded and very well established in the state) grew irate when they learned that the upstart Cossacks had added 'Texas' to their uhmm..... "attire".

    As a side note, an article here in the Dallas alternative newspaper a few years ago reported that the Bandidos, despite their improved image (at the time) had warned other groups that about violence if they displayed a 'Texas' rocker. This threat was reinforced when they brawled with a Hells Angels group over Texas rockers. This threat then led to some Dallas area clubs, one named the Dirty Bastards, not to present themselves as state wide orgainizations.

    Well said.

    And what happened in Waco illustrates your point. It was not a case of just one or two "bad apple" individuals bringing weapons and then "going crazy". Rather, most of the bikers there brought weapons and were expecting to fight.

    The Federal government used to spend allot of resources infiltrating their operations.

    My guess is that THIS Federal government is using their resources on other things which allowed this to get out of hand.

    Up to 170 Face Murder-Related Charges in Biker Melee

    Scene of the Shootout
    A shootout among rival motorcycle gangs on Sunday killed at least nine bikers and wounded 18 others.


    Police officers detained groups of bikers after the shooting and said that up to 170 people were charged on Monday with engaging in organized crime linked to capital murder.
    The fight spilled into the parking lot, escalating from fists to chains, knives, clubs and firearms.
