Almost certainly the fault of single mothers

Nine bikers were killed in a fight at a restaurant in Waco, Texas, Sunday, as rival motorcycle gangs fought each other over not much of anything. The violence has left observers wondering what it is about Texan people that leads them to such wanton violence; we’re waiting in vain for so-called “moderate Texans” to condemn the actions of the thugs within their midst.

The fight broke out at a “Twin Peaks” restaurant, a chain we were surprised to learn is more an imitation of Hooters than a tribute to David Lynch’s innovative 1990 ABC TV series. The local restaurant had been criticized by police for its regular “biker nights,” and based on a tip that trouble might break out, police were reportedly already surrounding the restaurant when the fight started, according to Waco police spokesman Patrick Swanton:

Police and troopers were in the parking lot trying to secure the area and protect citizens when a fight broke out inside the restaurant and spilled into the parking lot.

Swanton said the fight quickly escalated from fists and feet to chains, clubs and knives, then to gunfire.

Gang members were shooting at each other and officers at the scene fired their weapons, as well, Swanton said […]

“It is one of the most violent scene I’ve seen in my 34 years as a police officer in Waco,” Swanton said.

Swanton said officers recovered more than 100 weapons from the scene and there were several vehicles that had bullet holes in them.

The fact that most of the bikers were armed didn’t seem to make them any more polite; the NRA did not respond to queries about whether their Dumb Gun Slogans department would be revisiting any of the group’s favorite clichés in response to the melee. It is also not known whether the 100+ guns will be given to good foster homes; expect someone to start a GoFundMe to make sure that the orphaned weapons are properly cared for.

The New York Times reports that Twin Peaks had not exactly established itself as a good corporate citizen:

The authorities made little effort on Sunday to conceal their frustration with the restaurant’s managers, who they said had previously been uncooperative in dealing with the Police Department’s security concerns about biker gatherings there.

“We have attempted to work with the local management of Twin Peaks to no avail,” Sergeant Swanton said. “They have continued to allow these bikers to gather here, and this is the culmination of what has occurred.” He added: “What happened here today could have been avoided if we had had management at a local establishment listen to their police department and assist us. They failed to do that.”

An award for outstanding achievement in ass-covering should go Rick Van Warner, spokesman for the national Twin Peaks chain, who took pains to note that the violence took place in the Waco restaurant’s parking lot, adding that the corporation was “thankful no employees, guests or police were injured in this senseless violence outside the restaurant, and our sympathies are with the families of those killed.” And also, of course that there were no unfortunate photos of bullet-riddled corpses inside the restaurant, especially not next to the company logo. Talk about a lucky break!

Van Warner also told the Times in a later phone interview that the parent company was “seriously considering revoking the franchise based on this situation,” because “If any of those allegations are true that there was ample warning to potentially prevent something of this nature, then there is no way we would allow someone to continue operating under our own brand.” Or, translated from corporatese, “A higher level of ass coverage may be in order.”

As of yet, there have been no calls for the white community in Texas to be treated as a suspect class; New York Times columnist Charles Blow and others have been asking some questions about the police response in Waco:

charlesblow waco

As has The Atlantic’s Ta-Nehisi Coates:

coates waco

It’s almost as if there’s a violent undercurrent in white culture that nobody’s willing to talk about.

As of press time, we have not yet heard from Alex Jones on the matter, so we aren’t certain whether the bikers were all crisis actors pretending to have a shootout so the feds can seize all the guns, or if the incident is part of Operation Jade Helm 15, and hence a slightly different flavor of false flag incident staged so the feds can seize all the guns. The one thing it couldn’t possibly be was a bunch of armed thugs blowing each other away because guns are always the solution.

The Log Lady could not be reached for comment on the incident.

        It’s a little more complicated than that- Arlo is still a lefty and also a small L libertarian. He did become a bit enamored of Ron Paul in 2008 (why so many idjit pot smokers fall for that snake oil is beyond me). The registering GOP thing is actually somewhat tongue in cheek.
        from 2012 re: this very subject:

        I
        just did a little interview via email for a newspaper in Ireland about
        my upcoming tour there. As part of it I answered a question with this:

        There was an article that just came out in the New York Times that said
        I had distanced myself from my fathers legacy because I was a
        registered Republican. And while it’s true I am registered as such
        (mostly for the humor of it), I am more closely aligned with my father
        than at any time I can remember. It seems to me that the struggle we
        have around the world now, is not between right and left as much as
        between those with too much and those with too little. There are people
        in this world who actually believe that government works best when it
        serves those with the most. I’m not one of ’em. I believe government
        ought to serve everyone about the same even if it’s lousy government.
        That is what my dad says over and over in mostly every song he wrote.
        That’s what me and my kids and their kids are singing about. I’ve just
        spend a few months on tour with my entire family and these thoughts were
        at the heart of every gig we did. I’m coming to Ireland to continue
        that tour on my own and to celebrate my dad’s centennial birthday where
        these ideas are still treasured.

    One other item biker dudes: when you decide to have a shoot out, and 9 of you are dead, it’s an even dumber idea to arm yourself, ride to town on a motorcycle while wearing your colors so you can help your brothers who are in a state of Britbart, and not expect to be stopped by the Po-po.

The ACLU should disband permanently and four new votes to defund ACORN should become the immediate priority of Congress immediately.

    Maybe this is a silly question, but just what is the difference between biker gangs? Unless they are wearing their colors, how do you tell a Mongol from a Pagan?

    Isn’t the whole idea to have another club to fight?

    • Lazy Media

      Apparently, the Scimitars allied with the Cossacks were having a sit-down with the Bandidos [sic] to work out a dispute over turf and recruiting, and the discussion didn’t go as planned. So the parties turned to alternate means of dispute resolution.

    For the record, Twin Peaks is an off duty cop mecca throughout Texas, and Waco is no different. The reason the place was already surrounded was because there was a shit load of off duty cops INSIDE at the time of the shooting, armed and calling in back up. Right now, no one knows how many of the 9 killed were killed by bikers or the off duty cops and it’s unlikely the public will find out any time soon because blue line and all that shit.

    Hundreds of thousands of bikers (including gangs) gather in Austin for an entire week for the ROT rally. Austin isn’t that big of a place so they can’t miss each other. Yet, they’ve managed to never shoot each other to death. Fist fights? Sure. Motorcycle crashes? Yes. All out murdering each other because they are total thugs Sons of Anarchy style? Nah man. I’m fairly indifferent to bikers but most are just dudes who have friends who own bikes. Nothing sinister about it.

    Which makes me question why exactly the cops felt that this Twin Peaks was asking for trouble? It’s on I-35 just like every other Twin Peaks I’ve ever seen, which means there’s bikers, truckers, cops, oblivious traveling families, and douche bros mingling about all night long like every other location out there. I’m going to go with some cops dick feeling extra small when the bikers showed up.

    • Dee Andee

      This would definitely align with their extremely defensive attitude regarding this.

    • Whale Chowder

      I don’t know the other gangs but the Banditos are a real-life biker gang, rival to the Hell’s Angels here in the Northwest. It wouldn’t surprise me at all that when the cops saw all the 1%ers gathering they expected trouble. These douches live for trouble.

      • Jenny

        Yeah, who knows, these guys could be the hardest biker gang affiliate to ever conduct business in a strip mall’s chain restaurant…

        • Lazy Media

          The Bandidos “club president” served time for stabbing two members of the Cossacks. This is America; EVERYBODY eats at shitty chain restaurants, outlaw bikers included.

          • Jenny

            Sure, they do but how many of them conduct their gang activity in enclosed quarters that happens to also be over run with fucking cops who have been watching their every move?

          • Sheepshagger

            Um…the ones who have the local PD on the payroll?

            Just guessing.

          • Biel_ze_Bubba

            Many terms have been applied to biker gangs, but “genius” is not one of them.

          • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

            Who’s said that they were conducting their “gang activity” inside the restaurant?

        • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

          “conduct business”? I’ve never heard of going out to eat called that.

          • Jenny

            Oh I am sorry, evidently I need to use the sarcasm tag on Wonkette now…

      http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2015/05/18/waco-shootout-police-involvement/27530257/

      20 officers within the immediate vicinity (there’s about 130 cops with Waco PD, not all of them patrol.) . Cops make multiple “attempts” to keep the peace and negotiate with the gangs before hand, instead of you know arresting them for racketeering from the fucking beginning. But “Close to 100 weapons were recovered from the scene, including brass knuckles, knives and clubs.” Not 100 guns. Melee weapons.

      Waco is a religiously zealous town (even by Texas standards). Sure these guys could have totally been out to fight all night and party every day, but I can guarantee there’s more to this than just bad gang negotiations gone bad. The city and it’s leaders didn’t like the image of bikers in Waco.

      • Jerry Noneofyourbizz

        They didn’t like the image of bikers? Gee, I wonder why. And just what exactly is your point, anyway?

        • Jenny

          Because between the cops stories and the bikers stories http://www.agingrebel.com/12873 , lies the truth.

          I don’t think the large majority of the bikers were out to cause trouble, as a matter of fact, I know they weren’t since one of those clubs, Honorbound is a super religious bike club that my mother’s relatives are in. I KNOW how Waco politics work though and the fact that a franchise manager is somehow the blame for all this is bullshit. So yeah I am questioning WHY exactly the police felt that this was a problem but couldn’t handle it before hand.

    • jrwlsju

      Where 1%er bikers congregate, there’s usually trouble. That’s why the police thought there would be trouble. These aren’t middle-aged banker touring with their bikes. These are the Outlaws and Bandidos and their affiliated clubs.

  • Violent out-of-control biker gangs? Waco, that’s so 1954.

  • TheBidenator

    Oh don’t worry if the NRA even addresses this fuck tussle they’ll just use one of their pre-loaded “No True Scotsman” arguments like they do every time something like this happens. Then they’ll follow up by arguing that if the parking lot was armed this wouldn’t have happened….these people are impervious to self awareness or else teh Nuge wouldn’t be on their board.

    So, here’s a terrible solution!

    In Australia, violent biker gangs have been a problem forever – with various shootings like this occurring for decades. A couple of years ago Queensland decided they would resolve the problem by criminalizing biker gang membership – through a law modeled on old anti-union legislation! I guess they were thinking of the good ol’ days when it was illegal to join a union. Which led to fun articles like this one: https://redflag.org.au/article/tradies-targeted-queensland-government

    I was just thinking of this today because I can see the United States trying something similarly ridiculous. After all, Chris Christie hates “civil liberties extremists” and Lindsay Graham wants drone strikes for everyone, so…

    • Lazy Media

      Violent motorcycle gang members in Australia are called “bikies,” which is hilarious.

  • nelore

    NRA: All the dead would be alive today if more people were armed in the parking lot. The Restaurant is to blame for not having an armory on the premises where patrons could get a reasonable weapon with plentiful ammo. We shall work with Texas Legislature to provide armories in public gatherings.

  • Portia Elm

    I read someplace else that the fight started inside the restaurant, in the bathroom, (did someone get their fillins hurt?) then “spilled out” into the parking lot. Also, that the purpose of the gathering was for a “political discussion” between two of the gangs. With alcohol. And those little busty gals are trained to shame the old boys into getting the jumbo beer. Oh, no, the restaurant had nothing to do with it…
