Some of the dead and wounded may have been shot by officers responding to the bedlam at the Twin Peaks restaurant franchise, Waco police spokesman Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.
Wow. So the cops lit them up? That never happens.
Swanton said 170 people had been charged with engaging in organized crime resulting in death — a capital offense that could bring the death penalty in Texas.
Justice of the Peace W.H. Peterson ordered all to be held on $1 million bonds, and about one third had been had been booked into the McLennan County Jail by Monday afternoon, KWTX-TV reported.
Swanton said police had intelligence that the gang recruiting event Sunday at Twin Peaks restaurant could grow violent. Eighteen Waco and four state officers were in the area when the violence began, he said.
Compare and contrast with every single case of non-White men rioting anywhere in the USA in the last ten years. THIS is how you take down a riot. You shoot anybody who's got a gun in their hand, and then you arrest every single mofo in the place. Rinse and repeat every single time they show up.
