The Campaign For DA

I Told You The DA In Waco Was A Goofball



From his first interview:

  • "McLennan County District Attorney Abel Reyna defended the $1 million bonds keeping most of the arrested bikers in jail, and said the ones claiming to be victims need to start acting like victims and cooperating with police investigators."  That is beyond moronic. The government arrested them. The government accused them. The government is keeping them in cages. The government has the burden of proving their guilt. If you can't do it, figure that out immediately and release those people who deserve to be released. And you want them to cooperate after this law enforcement fiasco? Do you think those people believe they are going to be treated fairly if they do? No way. How about this: Get to work, do your job, and stop being a politician for the camera.
  • "'As many weapons as were found out there, they weren't out there just to eat lunch, they weren't out there to just have their little meeting, they meant business,' Reyna explained with a serious look." Oh, you're looking "serious"? Kind of reminds me of A Few Good Men: "Oh, you strenuously object?"
  • "We need to see what that evidence reveals, but I can tell you this - we're gonna get to the bottom of it and law enforcement is all working together as a team, and I'll [bet] on our own gang before I bet on their gang," Reyna promised.   Will they have patches that say, "A Gang Who Doesn't Know What The Evidence Reveals"? And, buddy, I wouldn't go to Vegas just yet. 
  • "Nobody's going to come into McLennan County and do something like that.  Not on my watch."  Oh, my. It looks like we have us a regular Charlie Bronson here. (With apologies to Drexl Spivey from True Romance.)
