Typical of American Police, if you are black, gay or Biker (that is somebody THEY don't like) you get shot and killed, allegedly lawfully, and they all sleep soundly in their beds. I am not keen on UK fuzz but you stand a damn sight better chance of surviving an arrest than in the good old US of A.....

Default Anti-biker prejudice

one of the remaining 'acceptable' prejudices in the US and UK, in police and in society.

As for the link - well, the unreliability of eye-witness-testimony, the fog-of-war, and so on often leads to mass confusion on the what occurred and when; with conflictual reports and the same event being recorded by different people at different times.

But...according to AP (yahoo news) the Waco HD dealership has been closed 'indefinitely' by the cops and there is a ban on riding motorcycles in the area.
I get that the police need to resist new flare-ups and repercussion events; but if the shoot out had been between hillbillies in pick-ups, would the local Ford/GM showroom be shut? Would all the soccer moms in their F150s have to find another car to drive around in?
I know that the motorcycle is perhaps more intrinsic to the 1%er gang than a black saloon car may be to the mob; but the response still seems heavy handed to me.

There is an article on the " aging rebel" website ,sorry can't do a link, that makes interesting reading. Puts a lot of doubt about the "facts" the police chief is spouting.

I've met black bikers and gay bikers but honestly can't say I have met a black, gay biker. My first thought would be that the reason you never meet one is they do not survive very long......
