Damn.

That is some old school, 1-percenter stuff that went down there today. And from police reports, it might not be over.

Heard about that. I'll reserve judgement on whether this is "old school 1% stuff", or just a bunch of ticked off bikers who may or may not belong to some sort of an organization and ended up shooting each other. Whether this is the start of "gangland wars" like some news organizations are reporting is yet to be seen.

Banditos and Cossacks....
They'r the real deal.

Cops were in MARKED cars in the parking lot before this started. Serious bad blood at work.

We may not see more right away or even in the same town. But, these guys aren't likely to let bygones be bygones.

Gotcha. That's what I hadn't heard yet. Although even some of the big historic 'bloodbaths' have been relatively isolated events. Not that they 'made up', but they were just smart enough to keep things from attracting too much heat.

Until anyone said who this was, I was a little leary of the "Gang wars" thought process here. Didn't want to jump to conclusions.

NPR has reported the same thing complete with statements from the officers. They were on scene complete with SWAT vans because they knew the meetup was going to happen. Imagine if they weren't, what a bloodbath.

Naturally, people are saying "why didn't they do anything in the beginning". Well, simple. They can't, nor should, do anything until it hits the fan. Otherwise were in a situation where if a bunch of bikers show up at a bar or restaraunt the police disperse everyone and send them home "just in case".

Twin peaks management knew about it, knew that rival gangs were coming and trouble would be guaranteed, but didn't want to do anything to prevent the fiasco and because Twin Peaks didn't tell the Police to do anything, by law they can't. They have to wait for a complaint or witness trouble. Shame that franchisee allowed that to happen.

The "franchise" didn't allow it to happen. The former manager did. The CEO of the franchise pulled the sign and endorsement and said they would never open that restaurant again. The cops were there in force, since they could not get the former manager to agree to cancel the event or set it up differently. I have read somewhere that the manager is also under investigations since he allowed the event to go on and refused to listen to the police of Dist Atty. about trying to limit the trouble factor. It is sad all the other employees lost their jobs.

Amazingly and thankfully, there were no civilians or officers injured.

Last I read I understood the franchise was thinking about taking the rights from the franchisee (individual responsible for that store). I'm glad they did. Nobody deserved to be in harms way like that for sure.
