TX Motorcycle Gang Violence That Killed 9 A Rare Event


The shootout between two rival gangs and the police at Waco’s Twin Peaks restaurant casts a frightening light on Texas’ outlaw motorcycle gang culture, known for its drug dealings and bar brawls, but rarely for outbreaks of extreme violence, reports USA Today. Police are trying to decipher exactly how the weekend clash between rival motorcycle gangs ended with nine people dead, 18 others injured and 170 people arrested. “We have not seen anything like this ever in Texas,” said Todd Harrison, president of the Combined Law Enforcement Associations of Texas. Sunday’s gathering was a Region 1 meeting of the Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents, which gathers each month in different Texas cities to discuss new memberships, motorcycle rights and legislative bills that affect riders.
