Biker Fight Leaves 9 Dead

I'm pretty sure the cops didn't rush in to break up a fight between a bunch of biker thugs, as long as innocents were not in any danger.
From The Waco Tribune: Police now believe there were five gangs involved in Sunday’s deadly shootout at Twin Peaks in Central Texas Marketplace, and some were allied with one another.
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said police attempted to contact Twin Peaks’ corporate headquarters after the shooting, but said he is unsure of the content of that conversation.
Officials are continuing to comb the crime scene as of about 7:30 p.m. and weapons and even several dead bodies remain in the parking lot.
In downtown Waco, about 100 or more people were questioned at the Waco Convention Center by law enforcement authorities, said Senior Department of Public Safety Trooper D.L. Wilson.
Officials had also closed off several streets downtown, including the bridges spanning the Brazos River. Reports were trickling in Sunday evening of various restaurants and bars that were closing early because of the potential for more violence in the city.
Sunday evening, Twin Peaks tweeted: “Our thoughts and prayers are with the families and victims of the tragedy at franchise partner’s restaurant in Waco.”
Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said part of the altercation that preceded Sunday’s biker gang shooting at Twin Peaks started in a restroom, spilled into bar, then into the parking lot.
At least two of the gangs were trying to do some recruiting in the area Sunday, and Twin Peaks was a known place for that kind of activity, Swanton said. Multiple law enforcement sources confirmed that the Bandidos and Cossacks biker gangs were at the center of the incident.
“In 34 years of law enforcement, this is the most violent crime scene I have ever been involved in,” Swanton said.
“There is blood everywhere. We will probably approach the number of 100 weapons.”
The cops also said that a bunch of bikers headed towards Waco and they were arrested, with weapons on them.  For the cops, it was like shooting fish in a barrel- pull over every motorcycle riding gang looking thug and chances are they found some weapons and the thugs got arrested.
So, 9 thugs dead and not a huge loss to the DNA pool.
