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.)

No problem with what the DA has done. I'm sure there are some innocent bikers who were not up for all that. But their "friends" who they align with, shot up a restaurant / shopping center scene that is popular with families.

Let them sit in jail ..... I'm sure charges will be dropped to most and most of them won't have any info to share with the DA, but this holding time is a time for the men to ponder their alignments in life.

If your friends who you hang with and you accept, like to play a little game of road power, potentially putting the lives of others in danger, then accept the collateral damage of a few days in jail.... or don't hang with that breed.

You're being pretty lenient on those thugs who started a war at a restaurant. I say lock em all up! They are thugs and deserve to be in jail.

If your kid took a bullet to the head in the cross fire you would undoubtedly be singing a different tune. You fucking attorney's are all about someone rights till it hits home with one of your own...Get a grip man!!

Face it Mr. Liberal, you are in the minority on this one. The DA is doing the right thing. Why haven't you hopped your ass down there to sign up some of you poor mistreated bikers? You have all the answers. Go save them, Codsack.

I agree bu...this was all a setup by law enforcement and those guys are completely innocent of any wrongdoing...

Damn where's an ambulance to chase when you need one?

Gentlemen,

Thugs come in all stripes. The cops shot up the place, not the bikers. Nine of the bikers paid with their lives, zero cops.

I'll bet the previous posts are the same types of comments made by individuals among the crowd on Golgotha.

After all the blubbering and posturing by the McClennan County DA and by the trigger happy government storm troopers, the entire incident will fade into just another Waco massacre that will be spun and generally ignored by the public.

Wonder what the chances are of some gangland-style payback down the road?

Barry is right on this one. Like it or not, the law is (supposed to be) for everybody.

You didn't have to tell me he was a moron, I went to law school with him. His first wife was a sweetheart, though.

And I think it's funny that all of the "we can carry weapons anywhere because of the 2nd amendment" folks are now defending the arrests. What, you can't carry a gun for self defense? Only one guy started this, the rest acted in self defense. Just because they had guns doesn't mean they were there to use them, or else every open-carry fanatic in Texas is there to use them, too.

I think that the general hoopla over this whole thing is fruit loops. Biker gangs, not your weekend rider, but I mean the guys and gals who live and embrace the biker way of life, those folks do not operate under the rules which constrain normal society. If you think they do, you're wrong. They know what those rules are, they make a point of not breaking them flagrantly on a regular basis, because they understand the concept of getting locked up, but they do not live their lives according to those rules...if the situation develops that it seems best to violate those rules, whoosh, out the window the rules go. So the surprising thing about this is that they don't have more dustups and don't kill each other with a tad more regularity.

So 12:23, in your pea brain way of thinking, it would all be OK if a few cops had been shot?

If the Twin Peaks does over 51% of their business in alcohol sales and even if you have a CHL you can't have a firearm in the place.
Most CHL holders know this and don't carry a firearm to a business that sells more alcohol than food...

If you wanna see a goofball, look no further than Obammy. He just granted amnesty to an illegal alien child molester and child porn distributor. God bless him because he has a D besides his name.

He definitely picks that nose.

11:27, so, if you're at a football game screaming with friends and other like-minded fans in support of your team, and a few in your section of the stadium break out into a fight that goes bad; and you had nothing to do with it; you OK with having a million dollar bond and being in jail because you were an associate and "there" as part of the crowd. Guess so.

"Nobody's going to come into McLennan County and do something like that. Not on my watch"? He really said that? Uh, Mr. DA, yours is the ONLY county in America where what you said is not going to happen on your watch...DID. You are the ONLY DA IN AMERICA THAT, ON YOUR WATCH, HAD THIS HAPPEN IN HIS OR HER COUNTY.

Hey 1:09 -- pea brain here. Is that what I said? The cops shot up the place, not the bikers. No cops were injured. Does that make it all right in your book? That seems to be what you're saying.

People used to have rights in the USA before the nazi mentality took over. Do you approve of the current direction of American culture? Do you approve of the soft police state we all live under? Apparently so.

But what do I know? I'm just a pea brain. 1488

Really, 5:08?

The police knew there was going to be trouble between the biker gangs because of incidents like what happened at Decatur at the start of the toy run in December 2014. The biker gangs are criminals connected to the drug cartels that give poor kids toys. It appears the gangs control and bad stuff was on the agenda that day! Mingus has been a bad place for a long time and the good folks shouldn't have to deal with gang fights. The sheriff is right to prevent problems for public safety.

I am totally confused how they can still be holding these people!

My parents always told me if I was with a friend in their car and they got stopped by the police for drugs, that I would go to jail too. Point of the story was don't hang out with people that will get you in trouble. I think the biker scenario is the same. A quote from my grandmother, "He who lies down with dogs, riseth with fleas".

Hey Pea Brain, you just validated my assumption about you.

10:58 -- well, you know what they say about assuming things. Calling people names is oh-so-clever. Nazi much?
