May 17th 2015: So much tragedy wrapped up in such a short period of time. 9 deaths, 20 injured, 177 arrested without a formal investigation and due process.
The vilification that followed proved to us they didn't know what the hell they were talking about. It was clear they did not understand the nuts & bolts of the TCOCI and modern day MC's.
The only person that spoke truth in the first hours after the fight in the parking lot was Bandido Gimmi Jimmy when he said, there were no Bandido's traveling to Waco seeking revenge against law enforcement, the Cossacks or citizens. He went on to explain why if you remember?
There were a few things that perked our interest and compelled us to get involved. Violations of Constitutional Rights of American Citizens, obvious inaccuracies and the arrest of US Defenders Members we had worked with during the 84th legislative session. Although I was a political activist for more than a decade OG and I were new to US Defenders leading up to the 84th Legislative session, what we brought to the table was political contacts State and Federal, but that's another story.
Popeye, OG, Dozer Stratagizing
Personal knowledge helped us form the attack we used against the lies and innuendos that kept coming over the months and years by LE and Abel Reyna. Make sure our goal was not only to expose the corruption within McLennan County, but to make sure Abel Reyna was the first casualty of this public information war. Ego alone rarely wins these type fights. Of course we are not willing to say what else is needed.
“Speaking truth to power means believing deeply in what you say and fighting every day to have that heard. It may not be popular; it means taking a risk, it means standing for something.” It's exactly what the vilification artist within law enforcement, DA's Office and Courts did not have.
We (Sons Of Liberty Riders MC & Others) were willing to face the gates of hell for our friends, brothers and others we did not even know.
We were more than happy to see Paul Landers name come up as one of the cases dismissed in the last few days. The average Biker doesn't understand the work of men within the US Defenders program and the influence they've had in Biker Rights & Motorcycle Safety issues.

Paul Landers had become a target of Abel Reyna. We think because of our success in the Legislative process. It's more that disturbing the DPS was leading the charge at Twinn Peaks and has great influence in the State Legislature (lobbyist paid with our tax dollars).
We've stood by for 3 years waiting patiently to inject truth and information in print and video form to defend those wrongfully arrested by evil men of great power and influence. Men and women with badges, thousand dollars suits and robes.
Now is not the time to relax or stop the mission continues. See you in front of the courthouse...
Congrats Paul, let's get back to work.
