    . . . . Which is why the meeting in question was held: to sort out the various issues. And why was why heavily-armed police officers were in the parking lot: because the hammer was already in mid-swing; they do not want the Hell's Angels here, and they're not very fond of the local groups, either.

    So you have known members of four organizations meet in a formal interaction . . . .

    That's the legal aspect of the situation. The other side of it is a message from the state AG & Gov's office down to the local prosecutors to the gangs. This incident and the subsequent chest-thumping by some of the fringe gangs has induced the state to remind these individuals as to who exactly runs the State of Texas and what happens to those who have any doubts thereof. Likewise, its a non-too-subtle message to the Hell's Angels as to what sort of welcome they can expect.

    There is a lot of very high feelings going on right now. It hasn't made the news much but there have been some very hard no-knock search warrants in various places in the state, and more than one jail has see a surge in occupancy.

    The status quo has been violated, and therefore feces shall rain upon the offenders until all has been made right. It is going to be a long summer.
    And this comes straight out of a Curtis Hansen flick.

      It's the same as police wearing uniforms, the Army, Navy and airfarce and ancient tribes dying there skin different colours before a battle. As stated it's a machismo thing with the ' my club is better than your club' line of thought so therefore our patches, emblems, badges and logo's are better than yours and by wearing them they are stating that they are the top FIRM on the manor. If a the rival firm, with differing colours or patches and loyalties, should perchance wonder into the territory of the rival gang, then things can get very interesting indeed.
      Harsh words might be exchanged between rival clubs. Sometimes it can trigger of a round of fisticuffs in the street which, if the police don't involved, will nearly always escalate into a bigger fight when the gangs pull out their Swiss Army knives, the ones with all the multi tools and short blade making it legal to carry, and attempt to either undo the stitching of the rival clubs colours or badges with the scissors on their Swiss Army knife, or they attempt to gouge someone's eye out with the blank non sharp tool on the Swiss Army knife that no one knows what it's really for.
      Obviously the gangs involved in Waco didn't have Swiss Army knives and instead decided to kick the living day lights out of each other in the bar and when they found out that knives were no use they resorted to using guns.
      The police dealt with this situation to the best of their abilities and short of putting wire across the road to decapitate the riders in an ambush, they had their hands tied.

      How many cops and federal agents were having twitches and thinking of going home sick with nervous bowel movements in fear of another siege and disaster in Waco after that religious nutjob and his cult?

      I will now apologise for hijacking the thread and crayoning utter rubbish on it, I only hope it's cheered some of you up a little bit with my rather dull attempt at humour.

        As for your premise, you're totally wrong. Most people don't use drugs because they are illegal, and that still matters to many. Try to imagine what daily life would be like if all drugs were legal. Would you trust a bus driver? A pilot? Anyone using powered equipment? How about the judge you might face in court, or the jury? Could you trust anyone with anything?
        You're the one with the false premises. Just because something is legal, doesn't mean that it's allowable in all circumstances. Alcohol is legal, but it's illegal for all those groups you mentioned when they are on the job.

          You're funny when you pretend half of Americans aren't jacked up on legal drugs that as dangerous and toxic as what's in the streets.

          I can't imagine a bus driver, pilot, or laborer who doesn't take a pharmacy worth of pills just to get by, as half the population does.

          And let's pretend caffeine isn't a rage-inducer, too. Hilarious. I don't trust anybody until I see Puritan sobriety in their eyes. And really, I don't trust those people because they tend to be full nutters.
