Support the Legal Defense Fund for Victims of the Waco Tragedy

There are many unanswered questions relating to the May 17, 2015 shooting at a Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas. But what is known provides more than enough to establish that an irrefutable miscarriage of justice has occurred.

 

177 people were arrested without any individualized or specific probable cause. They were arrested solely based on their association with a motorcycle club, including individuals that law enforcement acknowledges committed no crimes. Each individual arrested was given 1-2 million dollar bails explicitly “to send a message”, which is a clear violation of the 8th Amendment’s prohibition against punitive bail.

 

A cornerstone of a free society is the idea that protecting one innocent person outweighs society’s interest in punishing the guilty. The ends do not justify the means. The issues of false arrest and excessive bail should take priority over the interests of punishing any guilty party present at Twin Peaks. The interests of the innocent are simply more important from a societal perspective.

 

This is not about any one motorcycle club. What happens in the Waco prosecution will have far reaching impacts on the entire culture of motorcycle clubs and the 1st Amendment issues of expression and association. And the results of the initial trials could have far reaching impacts on the remaining trials.

 

The Bandidos Motorcycle Club and associates have been targeted and are being prosecuted first. Time is short. Help is needed. The amount of legal resources available often equates to a better defense. The first trial is set for September, 2017.

 

Any motorcycle club member, motorcyclist, or individual concerned about the wider implications of the Waco tragedy can contribute to the legal defense of the first club being prosecuted by sending checks or money orders to:

 

USARG Inc./BMC

PO Box 58868

Houston TX 77258

 

Texas attorney Bill Morian has confirmed that USARG Inc./BMC is a legitimate and registered 501c3 Nonprofit, that all funds will be used strictly for legitimate purposes, and that all funds are absolutely transparent and reported.

 

Remember, a failure to support those being targeted only means there will be no one left to stand next to your club or loved ones when they are eventually targeted in the same way as those present in Waco on May 17, 2015.

 

Supporting victims of the Waco prosecution is supporting motorcycle club culture and the idea that constitutional principles protecting innocent people are far more important than the goals of the corrupt criminal justice system in Waco.

    Fully tranparency would be informing contributors who these funds go to and what attorneys are hired. The court appointed attorneys can’t take money, so who is this going to? Everyone already has a lawyer.

      From Double D:

      The attorney representing USARG Inc/BMC, an incorporated 501c3 nonprofit, is Bill Morian from Morian and Kahla LLP. Website and contact at: mklawyers.com. After the MPP became aware that assistance was needed, and that there was an official 501c3 interested in the issues of justice surrounding Waco, the MPP reached out to Mr. Morian and he provided all of the relevant information related to USARG Inc/BMC.

      As articulated, funds go to USARG/BMC. As a nonprofit they distribute funds where most appropriate, and where legal. 501c3 nonprofits have extensive reporting requirements which provides transparency. Funds received and spent by a 501c3 must be accounted for.
