Updated: Hundreds of bikers protest at courthouse

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

Actually Protesting getting shot by police snipers when they were not there for any kind of criminal event. They were discussing their rights. Looks like the police did most of the shooting and all of the killing.

    So now the bikers that started the violence are now viewed as 'victims'?...They chose to start the confrontation and shootings...Has it yet been established that law enforcement shot and or killed these bikers?. 'Looks like' doesn't sound like evidence more of an opinion or hoped for outcome...Further, if they did use deadly force it most certainly would have been authorized in this situation with the bullets already flying around in and outside of the business....To try and make and equate these criminals in the same breath as truly persecuted groups throughout history is a huge stretch and very disrespectful to actual victims...

The bikers were protesting and discussing 'their rights'?....It would be easy to paint with a broad brush and make the claim as some do in other situations that all bikers are criminals but that's certainly not the case but simply to portray the guilty as victims because of a biased towards law enforcement is well....expected and narrowminded....

If the bikers started it and the police finished it I have no problem with that. Caging 170 bikers some of them just weekend riders with no gang affiliation on organized criminal charges is another thing. I'll wait and see where the evidence leads....Yeah when it comes to los polica y and federales  I am narrow-minded and distrustful.

Lawyers have also raised questions about the arrest of 170 suspects, most now charged with engaging in organized criminal activity and ordered held in lieu of $1-million bond. Many, they say, were not members of the Bandidos or Cossacks, but were weekend motorcyclists who wound up as bystanders at a gang fight.

“We got mom-and-pop clubs, veteran clubs, religion clubs, all clubs in Texas were at that meeting — different kind of clubs from everywhere,” said a top Bandidos member from Austin, Texas, who would give only his nickname, Gimmi Jimmy, and who had been scheduled to speak at the Sunday biker meet-up but arrived late.

He said innocent people had been wrongfully jailed, and Bandidos supporters were working to get attorneys for the imprisoned bikers.
