Waco, Texas – Nevada attorney Stephen Stubbs has released five videos of the May 17, 2015 Twin Peaks brawl between the Cossacks, Scimitars and Bandidos M.C.s, which involved the Waco police SWAT team that ended with 9 bikers dead. At least 4 of the bikers killed were attributed to Waco police.
The brawl happened when seven Bandidos in motorcycles entered a parking lot where the Cossacks were parked and an argument turned violent. Stubbs says, that most of the bikers were at the Twin Peaks for a political biker meeting hosted by the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents and videos released show many bikers ran for cover and were not involved in the altercation, contrary to what Waco police alleged in criminal complaints against nearly 200 bikers present at the Twin Peaks Restaurant. Most of the bikers are innocent and should have not been charged in the incident. Some bikers were involved in the altercation and should face justice, according to Stubbs.
The following 9 victims were killed during the Twin Peaks Restaurant biker altercation between the Bandidos, Scimitars and Cassack’s M.C.s in Waco, Texas.
● Daniel Raymond Boyett, 44, shot in the head. (Cossacks M.C.)
● Wayne Lee Campbell, 43, shot in the head. (Cossacks M.C.)
● Richard Mathew Jordan Jr., 31, shot in the head.
● Richard Vincent Kirshner Jr., 47. (Cossacks M.C.)
● Jacob Lee Rhyne, 39, shot in the neck. (Cossacks M.C.)
● Jesús Delgado Rodríguez, 65, shot in the head. (Bandidos M.C. affiliate) Rodríguez was a Purple Heart recipient.
● Manuel Issac Rodríguez, 40. (Bandidos M.C.)
● Charles Wayne Russell, 46, shot in the chest. (Cossacks M.C.)
● Matthew Mark Smith, 27. (Cossacks M.C.)
McLennan County judges, Waco police, the Waco Mayor and the McLannan County District Attorney Abel Reyna are known for their family ties in governing, political control, keeping the feds and the Texas State Attorney General’s Office from taking over the biker cases resulting in allegations of corruption and a major cover-up of the Twin Peaks massacre.
The biker criminal warrant affidavits by Waco Police Detective Manuel Chavez claimed without probable cause that all of the bikers detained engaged in organized crime and were bonded by Justice of the Peace Walter H. Peterson who signed the warrants by Chavez and set illegal bonds of $1M each for the more than 177 arrested. Peterson can not preside over felony cases (only misdemeanor cases without jail time or bonds and civil cases up to $10k in liability), sign felony warrants or even set bonds, according to Texas state law.
Abel Reyna, the McLennan County District Attorney, Waco Police Chief Brent Stroman and other McLennan County judges knew that Peterson couldn’t sign felony warrants and set excessive bonds, but kept quiet and proceeded to hold bikers on frivolous charges.
Reyna was able to have McLennan County Judges put a gag order for victims (bikers) charged and their defense attorneys not to talk about the pending cases. Ballistic forensic and video evidence was withheld from attorneys and the public including media since last May. Attorneys for the majority of defendants have been filing for the forensic and video evidence to be release in order to get a fair trial.
The Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents representing most of the bikers charged confirmed that they will be filing a joint civil rights lawsuit against the Waco Police Department and McLennan County District Attorney Reyna for filing frivolous criminal charges against members (bikers) of the Confederation.
