Texas law enforcement officials are investigating what they say are new threats against officers from biker gangs in the wake of a recent shootout in Waco.
Members of the Bandidos biker gang who are in the military "are supplying the gang with grenades and C4 explosives," according to a bulletin issued Thursday by the Texas Department of Public Safety and reviewed by CNN.
The bulletin warns of plots targeting high-ranking law enforcement officials and their families with car bombs. The bulletin is based on unsubstantiated information from an informant who claimed to have obtained it from Bandidos and Black Widows motorcycle gang members.

I don't know but has anyone else noticed a heavier police presence in their areas lately. I know they are out like crazy in my little area. I've also seen a few of those cars with the automatic plate scanners.
To be fair it is memorial day weekend.
Conducting seat belt checks and DUI checkpoints in the middle of the day. of

Since this is a conspiracy site I feel obligated to speculated what might have happened.
We know that well established Motorcycle Clubs are monitored and often infiltrated by the ABCs, some even consider certain Motorcycle Clubs militia groups. Now deep undercover spies often work to break-up the group, create dissent, cause chaos, act as a provocateur, saboteur, using the Alinsky Method, ect..
This could create the recipe for a 'biker gang' fight, giving the authorities more reason to monitor certain groups, it also works to demonize those groups to give the public perception that these groups are bad and something needs to be done about it.

Well Hello Texas Girl, it has been too long since we rubbed elbows on the forum.
The Confederation of Clubs and Independents is a peaceful organization that promotes safety and motorcyclist’s rights. In the more than 10 years of meetings taking place we’ve not had so much as a heavily heated argument among attendees.
We are deeply disturbed that the productive and upstanding citizens being held are getting falsely labeled as criminals. They need to be released and allowed to get back to their families and jobs!
It should be noted that if such a threat did exist then why wasn’t someone from the COC&I contacted by authorities? In fact, we still have yet to be contacted.
Texas Confederation of Clubs and Independents
IMPORTANT COC&I NOTICE
There are many rumors circulating across the state that we are working to verify. We have supporters working on fact-checking and providing media outlets, clubs, organizations and families with current factual information as it becomes available.
Here are a few things to note:
• Rides and Events planned to go to the Waco area – DO NOT do this – it can hinder efforts with getting our people released and it could also place you in danger.
• FBI/DPS State-Wide Bulletin stating all bikers are at risk of search and arrest.
• We have reached out to both the FBI and DPS and have been told that not only is this false but that these scenarios would be against the law as a violation of your rights.
• Note on this from COC&I: Be smart but go about your business as you normally would.

Ok fair enough, if your post gets the required stars and ATS sleuths see it, they will tell you everything about the man. The members have done this too many times to count including Patient zero from Africa with Ebola, picture was broke here before msm even had it. It is an amazing network landman.

Maybe that inmate buddy is a cop... spreading misinformation?
That's a good story, but for some reason I don't believe it.... after hearing from this guy in the vid below.
Can't ride a motorcycle.... Snipers on the Highway.... WTF ???
Sandra “Drama” Lynch, of Mart, is well-known among local bikers for organizing charity concerts for cancer patients, rescuing dogs and fighting for motorcycle-friendly legislation.
In fact, she reserved the patio for Sunday’s meeting of a regional bikers’ rights coalition at Twin Peaks restaurant.
Now Lynch, 53, is in the McLennan County Jail on $1 million bond, along with her husband, Mike Lynch, 62, a plumber. The arrest warrants say the Lynches were part of organized criminal activity that led to the Twin Peaks shootout that left nine bikers dead.
“She’s the mama,” he said. “She’s the room mother who takes care of all the MCs in Waco. If someone has cancer or gets in an accident, she’s the one who helps put benefits together so they don’t lose their houses.”
Sandra Lynch also has traveled across the state promoting a “share the road” campaign. She was a part of a group that accepted a proclamation last week from Lacy Lakeview City Council for motorcycle awareness month.

That being said, I'd take anything coming out of the mouths of any of the members of these two clubs with a big grain of salt.
