El Paso Bikers Want Answers After Their Weekly Meeting Gets Broken up by Law Enforcement
Why did the Texas Department of Public safety and El Paso Police raid a Lower Valley meeting of local bikers? No one is saying, and the members of the biker's group wants answers.
The meeting at the Veterans of Foreign Wars post had been scheduled for weeks. There were 53 different organizations at the meeting. One Bandido member said they were discussing upcoming fundraisers and presenting a check to the Alzheimer’s Association when the meeting was broken up by police who said they were looking for someone.
One person was arrested but the Texas Department of Public Safety would only say that it was part of their normal, daily operation. They also said it was part of ongoing investigation and would release no other other information.
A biker said police "scared the hell out of us" because of the recent incident at a Waco, Texas restaurant where bikers and police got into a shootout after a fight between biker's clubs inside the restaurant.
