Waco Twin Peaks Tragedy —Two Years Later

By | Biker's Rights | No Comments

Waco Twin PeaksThe following is a press release from Clint Broden, one of the attorneys representing some of the defendants in the Waco Shooting tragedy, on May 17, 2015.

Press Release: On the eve of the two year anniversary of the Waco Twin Peaks tragedy, Clinton Broden of Broden & Mickelsen has issued the below statement to summarize the past two years. Broden represents three of the motorcyclists in their criminal cases (Matthew Clendennen, Burton Bergman and Richard Luther) and is co-counsel, along with Don Tittle, for approximately forty of the motorcyclists in their civil rights cases.

“In the first few days following the Twin Peaks tragedy, the Waco Police Department and the Waco District Attorney gave numerous press conferences attempting to characterize all of the 177 arrested motorcyclists as criminal gang members. Then, when it started to become clear that many of those arrested were bystanders and had absolutely nothing to do with the violence, the District Attorney’s office ran to court to obtain a gag order. The gag order was specifically designed to prohibit the motorcyclists from refuting the false information that the Police Department and District Attorney had spewed in their press conferences following the incident. In other words, the Police Department and District Attorney created a false narrative for the public and did not want anything to interfere with that narrative. Not surprisingly, the gag order was eventually held to be unconstitutional.

“Justice of the Peace Pete Peterson who gleefully set identical $1 million bonds for every one of the 177 arrested motorcyclists was eventually recused from the case because of his actions. The State Commission on judicial Conduct also made Judge Peterson “aware of its concerns” regarding his conduct in the case.

“Next, in November 2015, the DA bamboozled a grand jury into indicting 106 motorcyclists in a marathon session that allowed for less than five minutes of individual consideration per motorcyclist. It became clear just how much the DA’s office manipulated the grand jury when it was learned that the motorcyclists were indicted for the death of a person who, in fact, was not even killed at Twin Peaks. Eventually, the DA’s office obtained indictments against more than 150 motorcyclists, many of who were innocent bystanders who had no weapons.

“Nevertheless, despite rushing the cases to the grand jury, when Matt Clendennen and others sought speedy trials, the State sought continuances. To this day, the State has refused to try any of the Twin Peaks cases and has intimated that it has no intention to do so for the foreseeable future. Meanwhile, during a court hearing, it was learned that each of the three acting police chiefs and at least two police detectives on the scene on May 17, 2015 opposed arresting the motorcyclists not involved in the violence and believed them to be mere witnesses. Despite that collective judgment, however, District Attorney Abelino Reyna contacted police chief Brent Stroman, who was out of state at the time of the incident, and advocated for the arrests of all 177 motorcyclists without even telling Chief Stroman the charges upon which the arrests would be based. Shockingly, Reyna testified at the same hearing that he had detailed and specific discussions with the police detective who signed the identical “fill-in-the-name” criminal complaint affidavits, but then the detective specifically contradicted Reyna and testified that he never even talked to Reyna that night.

“On the eve of the two year anniversary, more than 100 motorcyclists have filed civil rights lawsuits against Abelino Reyna and various members of the Waco Police Department and the Department of Public Safety. The lawsuits allege, among other things, that the wholesale arrest of all motorcyclists present at Twin Peaks without any individualized consideration of whether they participated in any violence violated the United States Constitution. Reyna and the officials named in the lawsuits have asked the court to delay the lawsuits.

“Finally, lost in the constant delays sought by the State, is the tragic death of nine Texas citizens. Yet, to this day, the Waco Police Department has refused to tell the public how many of those nine killed were killed by law enforcement officers. Meanwhile, the Sword of Damocles hangs over the heads of those indicted and, even two years later, these motorcyclists and their families are being denied justice and are unable to move on with their lives because there is absolutely no end in sight as a result of the State’s delaying tactics. Also, during the past two years and likely into the next decade, McLennan County citizens are being asked to absorb the staggering financial burden of the ill conceived actions by their elected district attorney.”

50th Anniversary Of Burt Munro Historic Land Speed Record

Indian Motorcycle Pays Tribute To The 50th Anniversary Of Burt Munro’s Historic Land Speed Record 

“The World’s Fastest Indian” to be Memorialized with 2017 Bonneville Land Speed Record Attempt by Munro’s Nephew

Press Release: It’s been 50 years since Burt Munro took his Indian Scout Streamliner to the Bonneville Salt Flats and made history – a story immortalized by the feature film, The World’s Fastest Indian, starring Sir Anthony Hopkins. As a result, Munro’s legacy transcends motorcycles and symbolizes the much broader drive to push beyond conventional limitations to experience or achieve what is seemingly impossible. Burt Munro is now a household name among “gear heads” across the globe and the ultimate example of the gritty, adrenaline-fueled pastime of expanding the limits of speed at the Bonneville Salt Flats.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Munro’s iconic land speed record, Indian Motorcycle is teaming up with Kiwi road racer Lee Munro, Burt Munro’s great nephew, to recreate the historic run at Bonneville on August 13.

“Motorcycling is about shedding boundaries and limitations to go beyond the norm, and there is no better example of that than Burt Munro,” said Reid Wilson, Indian Motorcycle Marketing Director. “Driven by unparalleled determination and a legendary passion for the pursuit, Burt Munro embodies the spirit of Indian Motorcycle, and we couldn’t be prouder to honor his legacy with an updated version of his historic record on the Bonneville Salt Flats in August.”

For the updated record attempt, Lee Munro will pilot a modern Indian Scout with a powertrain modified by the Indian Motorcycle engineering team in an effort to become the world’s fastest modern Indian motorcycle.  The attempt will not break Burt’s record, but instead will honor his storied legacy in the world of motorcycling.  Fueled by their own ambition to push beyond boundaries, Indian’s team of engineers volunteered to be a part of this historic attempt, working on the project “after hours.” The team will undergo several test runs in El Mirage, Calif. before Lee Munro takes to the Salt Flats of Bonneville.

“My uncle Burt was a significant inspiration for my own racing career, and his appetite for speed is clearly a part of my DNA” said Lee Munro, the grandson of Burt’s first cousin. “What Indian Motorcycle is doing is fantastic, and I couldn’t be prouder to partner with them and pilot my own Scout at Bonneville in honor of my Uncle and the 50th anniversary of his historic record.”

Born and raised in Invercargill, New Zealand, the same town as his great uncle Burt, Lee Munro first began his life on two wheels via the high-adrenaline sport of downhill mountain biking. After winning many local races, even finishing fifth in the 2002 New Zealand Championship, Lee entered into motorcycle road racing. He won his first race and captured numerous titles on every road and street race circuit in the South Island of New Zealand. With plans to race the Isle of Man, Lee attended the Manx GP in 2016 to gain knowledge of the track and better prepare himself. Most recently, Lee won the vintage class at the Methven Street Races earlier this year on a 1941 Indian motorcycle.
