Courthouse rally marks anniversary of Twin Peaks biker shootout

About 100 motorcycle riders from the Waco, Dallas and Houston areas converged in front of the McLennan County courthouse Saturday afternoon to commemorate the first anniversary of the Twin Peaks shootout that killed nine people and resulted in the arrests of 192 people and indictments of 154 people on charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.

This is the weekend before the May 17 anniversary of the Sunday afternoon shootings a year ago at the restaurant at the intersection of Interstate 35 and State Highway 6 that has since closed.

Stolen evidence, a mystery disc: Bike murder case at mechanic’s takes further twist

IT sounds like the plot from a Mission Impossible movie — a vital piece of evidence stolen from an unmarked police car that allowed two men to be sensationally acquitted over the shooting murder of a bikie.

So who “liberated” this evidence, just in time to free the men?

Was it someone on the police investigation, worried about a miscarriage of justice? One of the accused — a theory raised in court but dismissed by the judge? Or a bizarre coincidence caused by a random thief?

Bikie Edin Smajovic was shot dead.

Anthony Tan was shot in the neck by Smajovic.

Mom wants answers one year after Waco biker melee: 'Who killed my son?'

WACO - Rain or shine, Yvonne Reeves visits the makeshift shrine and sits, sometimes for hours, a few feet from where her son drew his last breaths as he was shot in the back of the head.

 

His nickname, "Chain," is painted on the asphalt parking lot.

His 10-year-old son traced an outline of his hand on the ground as if to wave goodbye.

"I don't know why I come here," Reeves said recently, as the wind caught her long gray hair. "I've been telling myself I don't want to come here, but I still come."

She combs through the rolling papers, wooden cross and other offerings to the dead left at the shrine, and calls Waco police detectives regularly with a message.

Court allows biker statements in gang shootout

DAYTONA BEACH — More than three years after a shootout between rival motorcycle gangs in Seminole County left three bikers dead, including one from Tavares, an appeals court Friday rejected a gang member's arguments that police improperly got information from him before reading required Miranda rights.

The ruling by the 5th District Court of Appeal overturned a lower-court decision that suppressed statements of David "Tin Man" Maloney, a member of the gang known as the Philly Warlocks who faces an attempted-murder charge.

The Philly Warlocks and a rival gang known as the Florida Warlocks got into a shootout in September 2012 outside a Veterans of Foreign Wars hall in Winter Springs, resulting in the deaths of three members of the Florida Warlocks, according to Friday's ruling.

Killed were Harold “Lil’ Dave” Liddle, 46, of Tavares, David “Dresser Dave” Jakiela, 52, of Orlando and Peter “Hormone” Schlette, 50, from Denham Springs, Lousiana.

Southside Rebels defect to Nomads, creating third bikie gang in ACT

A group of senior southside Rebels has defected to establish a Nomads bikie presence in the ACT, continuing the rapid erosion of Canberra's long-held status as a one-club city.

A Tuggeranong tattoo parlour owned by the father of one of the defecting bikies was allegedly targeted on Monday morning, prompting speculation the move may have created tensions.

The Rebels were the city's sole club for decades.

For decades, the Rebels were the only outlaw motorcycle club in Canberra, establishing up to five chapters in the ACT, recruiting heavily but bringing the stability that comes without inter-gang rivalry.
