A friends comment - That fact stands and is undeniable. The FBI is in possession of those videos to assist us in the investigation. It is not up to me as to when that gets released but rest assured it will. Unedited, unaltered and will show exactly what was started by bikers and how it led to officers having to use deadly force to stop their violence towards each other and Law Enforcement.

Are the locals being held down by the Feds....?

One month after the deadly May 17 shootout at Twin Peaks prompted the unprecedented mass arrests of 177 bikers, officials are releasing limited information and say disclosure of certain evidence, including videos of the incident, would compromise their investigation.

The incident was of such a rare scale and variety that McLennan County officials had never experienced anything like it.

Their response after the shooting stopped has been criticized by some and spawned at least one federal civil rights lawsuit and a judicial complaint.

Now, as the media, bikers and their relatives push for answers, many questions remain unanswered because of the sheer magnitude of the incident: nine dead, 20 wounded, 177 arrested, 27 vehicles seized, 488 weapons found on scene to date.

Officials are quick to point out the criminal justice system does not work like it does on TV crime shows, despite the public’s expectations.

“This is an investigation. The term ‘investigation’ carries with it a careful and impartial consideration of all the evidence and all the facts,” 19th State District Judge Ralph Strother said. “It is not done on ‘CSI’ time. It is done in real life and in the real world. It is to everyone’s best interests that all parties know everything so that we can be fair to everyone, and that cannot be done overnight.”

I call bullshit.  This was an attack by the feds and now they are covering the actions of the cops. Everytime the video surveillance is released it shows the cops are at fault and it was the killing at big bear where the policy changed to protect the cops.Yeah I trust the official story NOT
