Bandidos blast Tasmanian 'anti-gang' law bid, deny involvement in ice drug trade

The Bandidos say motorcycle clubs "will never be legislated out of existence" and they would happily work with the Tasmanian community to "address concerns" in a detailed submission arguing against amendments to the law to target outlaw motorcycle gangs.

In a written submission responding to the Organised Criminal Gang Legislation position paper, which sets out the Tasmanian Government's proposals for possible reforms to the Police Offences Act 1935, the Bandidos Motorcycle Club (BMC) addresses each of the eight proposed amendments, arguing "no existing member had engaged in serious criminal activities" in Tasmania, to the "very best of our knowledge".

The club also said the accusation its members were involved in the ice drug trade is "categorically refuted and is completely unsubstantiated".

Texas biker accused of killing man who was shot by police

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - One of three bikers indicted on murder charges Wednesday stemming from a chaotic 2015 shooting outside a Texas restaurant is accused of killing a man who was also shot twice by police, according to ballistics evidence reviewed by The Associated Press.

The indictments against Glenn Walker and two fellow members of the Bandidos motorcycle club mark the first murder charges filed in connection to the melee that left nine bikers dead, 20 wounded and nearly 200 arrested outside a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco.

Investigators say the shooting was sparked by rivalries between the Bandidos and Cossacks motorcycle clubs ahead of a biker meeting. Waco police monitoring the gathering said officers opened fire after fights and gunfire broke out in the parking lot.

One last ride: Hundreds of bikers pay respects to Lakelands Warlocks president

Hundreds of leather-clad bikers sat atop their motorcycles, engines revving loudly, with their middle fingers to the sky in a show of respect to a man who often lifted the same digit to his many friends — John Ruley Jr.’s funeral procession was as boisterous and head-turning as his laugh was.

On Wednesday, Harley Funeral Home was surrounded by motorcycles. Hundreds of bikers from throughout the state and some from as far as West Virginia came in their colors to pay their respects to Ruley. He served as president of the Warlocks Motorcycle Club Lakelands chapter, and died in a wreck Saturday night alongside the club’s vice president, Tommy Burdette.

42 More Dismissals in Twin Peaks Cases

(audio)---Felony charges have been dismissed for 42 more bikers for their alleged involvement in the 2015 shootout between rival groups at a restaurant in Waco. It’s the largest round of case dismissals so far
 

The DA’s office began slowly dismissing charges earlier this year, and recently began picking up the pace. These dismissals are the 3rd round in a week bringing the total down to 58 pending cases. 155 were originally indicted and given a blanket charge of engaging in organized criminal activity. District Attorney Abel Reyna has said the dismissals are to focus on defendants with more culpability.

The next round of trials is planned for late August. A retrial of the head of the Dallas chapter of the bandidos motorcycle club is scheduled for September. Jacob Carrizal’s first trial ended in a hung jury.
