When a picture is worth a 1000 words …


I saw this photograph and it speaks volumes. This was taken in the parking lot outside the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas following the shooting between rival biker gangs that began in the restaurant and quickly spread and in which nine people died, 18 were injured, about 150 people arrested, and hundreds of assorted weapons collected.

Note anything strange? It is that the members of the bikers gangs involved in the riot are just sitting or standing around, chatting or using their cell phones. The policeman, while armed, is without armored gear and helmets and seems unconcerned that his back is to this dangerous group.

Compare this to what happened in Baltimore when police were in full riot gear and it would have been unthinkable for them to let the black men there just chill with their buddies and their phones.

    You missed the part where the cops opened fire on the crowd with assault rifles and killed at least 4 people if not all the victims, two of whom were Hispanic and not white. Two of the gangs involved, “Escondidos MC” and “Los Pirados MC” do not sound like white gangs and mugshots show many of those arrested are Hispanic. Yet the media continues its racist tradition of portraying Hispanic criminals as “white” (see George Zimmerman).

    ‘Multiple sources have told The Aging Rebel that all of the dead were killed by police.’

    I would challenge you to find any mainstream media site that lists the names of the dead and injured. They are all just dead white bikers—and deservedly so it would seem—not individuals with names and families, like “Trayvon.”

    The whole thing was over in minutes so no need for cops in riot gear to control people who were no longer causing mayhem or resisting arrest. Most photos show the bikers meekly submitting to the cops on their knees while waiting to be processed for arrest.

    Video evidence from inside the restaurant showed that few if any of the bikers inside the restaurant were involved in the fighting, with most running for cover when the shooting started and the rest going spread-eagled on the floor when the cops entered.

    Despite the fact video evidence contradicts the police version of events and the police keep changing their story, the media is accepting the police version of events without question and no one is alleging excessive use of force, police brutality or mentioning “militarized police” despite the fact a SWAT team was on the scene in advance and all cops present had assault rifles and many used them to kill.

    All 170 people at the scene were arrested, charged with engaging in organized crime and held on $1 million bail despite the evidence showing many weren’t involved in the violence. How many of the Crips and Bloods involved in rioting and death threats against cops in Baltimore have been so charged? In Baltimore hundreds of rioters who had been charged with looting, assault and rioting were released without bail even though over 200 cops have been injured so far.

    I could go on all day with evidence that contradicts the tiresome and suspect race-baiting propaganda that is always served up whenever white people are involved in a crime, but what would be the point?

    I thought they only allowed you one phone call post arrest yeah?

    There is that too.

    Over on the blog Simple Justice, defense attorney Scott Greenfield points out how the official story and police spin seems to have very little basis in the truth. The cops just went in and arrested everybody, without any knowledge of who did what. They like to count the number of weapons (including things like knives—what kind of knives?), but it is likely that almost all the weapons are legal (this is Texas, after all).

    And one of the comments suggests that one person fired a gun (citing video), and then the police opened fire on everybody. All the bikers are guilty by association. What happened to individualized suspicion?

    Well, Sean, that’s a nice white whine you have there – throwing a temper tantrum the moment it’s suggested that whites can be violent yet treated differently by law enforcement as the picture clearly shows.

    You’re part of the problem in this country, in this world, Sean. And yes, you are an imposter, faking your humanity and sense of justice as it is in reality.

    You know Sean, there may be problems with how Waco is covered, but you are doing the exact same thing to Baltimore. Counting every scratch as a police injury, ignoring huge bails set, blindly assuming all charges indicate guilt.

    It is pretty obvious you like to pretend you are not racist because those others are the “real” racists. I know that judging people by their race hurts all kinds of people. You pointing this out is not a counterexample and only shows your biased and simplistic idea of what is happening.

    Also Hispanics are often considered white. The box I check on forms is “white, non Hispanic”. Race is a social construct anyway. It has more to do with how others see you than what language you know or who your parents are. The media that considered Zimmerman in the right to kill a thug considered him just as white as the media that thinks he dehumanized Martin because of his race.
