Waco Police Press Conference Today

 Ok, I'll give them that.

Huh? We don't know how many officers fired their weapon? I'm 99% sure that any police agency requires a report to be immediately filed if an officer fires his weapon while in the performance of his duties. And even if not, how about asking them?  But. Ok. Let's give them an extreme (and silly) benefit of the doubt and assume they haven't ID'd all the officers.
Ok, scratch that. 


This from the same guy, Sgt. Patrick Swanton, who said less than 24 hours ago: “There was a green light put out on law enforcement [by the gangs], is our understanding from last night. We are aware of that threat . . . . We are on high alert.”


Whoa!!! Uninvited? Meaning unexpected?  So the cause of the violence was potentially something Twin Peaks did not anticipate (even assuming you can ever anticipate a gun fight in Waco). ? Had the other group not shown up, everything might have been fine?

Something stinks about the whole deal.

So did the police being there actually fan the flames of this already volatile situation? Did police fire the first shot?

So, is it a contradiction if he/they subsequently says/say that the threats have toned down? You do understand that the flow of information is dynamic, not static, don't you?

They need time to verify those stories add up as well.

You should know a crime scene of that magnitude will take super long to conclude just the preliminary investigation.

Where was Walker, Texas Ranger when all of this went down? If he were there, Sgt. Swanton would be saying, "We're not sure how many roundhouse kicks landed to the faces of the gang members."

So if a Bandito pulls a gun and takes a shot at a Cossack and the Cossack pulls a gun to defend himself and gets shot by the police does the policeman get an assist?

ALL deaths attributed to police shootings.

The cops have to get together and make sure they fabricate their statements accordingly. This takes time. Got to cover their asses, so they don't have contracts put out on them. It's as simple as that.

The friggin Marx Brothers could've handled this better.

There will be no Harleys, Indians, or choppers where they're headed to. Only radiator hoses.

This is just typical of the gangster thug society we live in today. What is even more absurd, is that the police are even involved in this culture. Local law enforcement has a club called The Gunslingers. This stupidity has got to stop!

How in the hell can you condemn this type of culture, and embrace it at the same time...?

Local law enforcement, PLEASE respond.

The Waco PD is holding a get together at the Twin Peaks and invite the public to attend. From the press release:

"Come have a drink with your public servants. The first shot is on us!"
