WACO (CBSDFW.com/AP) — Voters have routed the Texas prosecutor pursuing charges against more than a hundred bikers in cases stemming from a fatal 2015 shootout involving bikers and police outside a restaurant in Waco.

Local bikers heartily campaigned for Abel Reyna’s Republican opponent in Tuesday’s primary election. The result means attorney Barry Johnson will run uncontested for McLennan County district attorney in November.

The shooting left nine bikers dead and 20 injured. Investigators say it was sparked by tensions between the Cossacks and Bandidos motorcycle groups.

More than 150 bikers were originally indicted, accused of engaging in organized criminal activity. The only case to go to trial so far resulted in a mistrial in November. Reyna recently dismissed 26 other cases.

Johnson has criticized Reyna’s handling of the cases and pledged to take a fresh look if elected.

    That shoot out was handled all wrong and I’ll be outside eyes would find lots of ground to jail a lot of cops.

    People say there is a RACE problem. People say this RACE problem will be solved when the third world pours into EVERY and ONLY into White countries.

    People say the only solution to the RACE problem is if ALL and ONLY White countries “assimilate,” i.e., intermarry, with all those non-Whites.

    But if I tell that obvious truth about the ongoing program of genocide against White people, Anti-Whites agree that I am a naziwhowantstokillsixmillionjews.

    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White.

    Barry Johnson is not running unopposed in November. He’s being challenged by Daniel Hare (I). https://www.facebook.com/DanielHareforDA/

  4. Real Bikers are always republicans and you can’t count democrats as bikers because they ride around on Jap bikes so they dont rate.
