Trial begins for first of 154 bikers involved in 2015 Waco Shootout

Posted: Updated:

WACO, Texas (AP) - Jury selection is to begin for the first trial stemming from a deadly 2015 shootout between bikers and police in Waco.      The selection process in the trial of Christopher "Jake" Carrizal is scheduled to being Tuesday in Waco.      The Dallas chapter president of the Bandidos motorcycle club is the first to stand trial of 154 bikers indicted after the shootings that killed nine people and wounded 20 others outside a Waco restaurant. All are indicted on felony charges of engaging in organized criminal activity.      Investigators say motorcycle clubs were meeting at the Twin Peaks restaurant when a fight erupted between the Cossacks and the Bandidos, which the FBI categorizes as an outlaw motorcycle gang. The fight spilled into the parking lot as three police SWAT officers responded with rifle fire.

      Yes, they (still) can. But it won't always be this easy, and this was pretty hard at that. Democrats have every reason to celebrate their victory in Alabama. They can revel in storylines about new coalitions in red-state America, and about Republican dissensions and governing difficulties. But their true battles have barely begun.
