Ester and Walter Weaver say they are not criminals.

“I don’t even have so much as a speeding ticket to my name. Ever,” said Walter Weaver, an analyst at Fort Hood. “I’ve been driving since 1975.”

Ok let’s get real: Two known criminal biker gangs were there. Waco PD intell knew something was going to go down. You’re dressed the same way with tattoos and everything. Police don’t know you’re a couple of yuppies.

I see a lot of these yuppies and military retirees riding on their bikes in Killeen with the black leather vests and patches; you want to put on the impression that you’re a Billy Bad Biker and you’re not. I used to hang out with a criminal biker gang as a kid so I know.

Then there are the ghouls that can’t wait for somebody to die so they can ride a bike in a funeral; you fake bikers make me sick. I don’t feel sorry for you

If that was me, I would begin the lawsuit against everyone involved. Don't wait for criminal trial to begin or charges to be filed against you. False arrest, hiring an attorney, lost of wages and reputation. That is enough to be awarded a huge sum of money from all of those involved in denying you your freedom and causing you to have to defend yourself.

The Miranda warning is part of a preventive criminal procedure rule that law enforcement are required to administer to protect an individual who is in custody and subject to direct questioning or its functional equivalent from a violation of his or her Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination.

Guess what when the Mirada warning was made into law there was no such thing as a 911 call. When you call 911 you’re not arrested or in custody but everything you say is recorded and can be used against you in court. You’re not read any Mirada warning; clearly this goes against your Fifth Amendment right against compelled self-incrimination.

The way the system is setup it’s against us. Look at Police shootings. They will be suspended and their lawyers will speak for them; they have the right to remain silent. You do something wrong you call 911 you’re recorded and everything you say will be used against you; even through you’re not arrested and no one has read you your rights! Where is our right to remain silent?

Police show up and you invoke your right to remain silent; the Police think you have something to hide—now you’re a suspect; a DA will tell that to a the jury and will use that against you. Just because you invoked your right to remain silent. Don’t believe it go to Netflix and watch, “Death Row Stories.” How many years did these innocent people spend in prison because of some DA wanted a notch under his/her belt and the Police will use everything you say against you—you will be shocked!

The more I read about this incident the more convinced I have become that the police had no idea where they were doing.
I can see a whole slew of lawsuits being filed.

Unfortunately we now live in a world of...Guilty until proven innocent.

I think for all the innocent people arrested...the City of Waco should pay for any out of pocket expenses for them...bond money, attorney fees and loss of wages....

Waco...do the right thing...
