Waco, Texas – The Waco Twin Peaks biker massacre case just took an extremely ominous, and seemingly corrupt turn. A police detective for the Waco Police Department was selected to serve as the head of the 12 person grand jury, which is likely to decide who gets indicted in the case.

Detective James Head, a 26-year police veteran, was wearing his police badge and pistol when he was sworn in Wednesday, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald.

When asked by the Waco Tribune-Herald if he had played a role in the Twin Peaks investigation, Head responded, “Not really.” With Head going on to admit that his selection was kind of “unusual.”

A witness told police that two of the distinct white and light blue cars from the Car2Go fleet had fled the scene after 22-year-old Daerius Churchill was gunned down Jan. 4 on the corner of Bruce Randolph Avenue and St. Paul Street.

A surveillance camera at a nearby business recorded three of the vehicles in the area, according to a search warrant affidavit.

Officials with Car2Go in Denver told detectives that GPS tracking systems on the car allow them to identify which cars are moving at any given time, the search warrant said. That should have narrowed the list to investigate.

However, the detective wrote in his affidavit that he and the Car2Go manager uncovered multiple cars that had been rented under fictitious names through a call center.

The company told police it records phone conversations between its representatives and customers. It also logs the caller ID numbers, the search warrant affidavit said.

Car2Go customers are vetted through an online application process, said Dacyl Armendariz, a company spokeswoman.

“It’s not like just anybody can jump in a car and drive away,” she said.

A racist manifesto and a collection of photos suspected to have been written and posted by alleged Charleston church shooter Dylann Roof was discovered by activists online.

On Saturday morning, two Twitter users – Emma Quangel and Henry Krinkle – found what is believed to be the 21-year-old’s website, titled “The Last Rhodesian.” The online activists used the Reverse Whois search on domaintools.com to find the site registered under Roof’s name.

The site’s name is a reference to an unrecognized state in Africa, in a region that is now Zimbabwe, during the 1960s and ’70s that was controlled by a white minority.

White supremacists have idealized this era and the Rhodesian flag has been used as a racist symbol.

The rambling text says that the event that “truly awakened” its author was the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin. It describes what appears to be Roof’s racist ideology and motivations for allegedly killing nine African-Americans at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

Along with the diatribe, the website contains a downloadable .zip file of 60 photographs.

Conrad’s spin is significantly different than that of the police. But it has been matched by numerous reports from other eyewitnesses, and people who have talked to eyewitnesses. The lawyer grants that the mayhem was launched by a conflict between members of the Cossacks and Bandidos biker gangs, in which one biker pulled a gun on another and started shooting. But that initial attack, Conrad insists, involved “no more than three rounds total of small arms fire, according to military vets on the scene who heard and knew how to recognize what guns sound like. All the rest of the fire came from police hardware. We believe that autopsies are going to show that at least six of the dead were shot by police, maybe all nine, and that the 18 wounded were shot by police.”

William English, in an account circulated by his lawyer, said “I heard two pops that sounded like small caliber gunfire. Following that, I heard several bursts of assault weapon shots. I recognized the sound because I carried one of those weapons for six years as a Marine. That’s all the gunfire I heard. Then the police started screaming ‘Get down!'”

English told CNN that it was crazy to believe, as the police have claimed, that nearly everyone present was part of a criminal biker conspiracy preparing for violence. “Do you think I would want to take my wife to some place I know there was going to be shooting?” he asked. “Do you think I would want to be in a place where there was a shooting? I was in combat. I don’t want to be shot at anymore.”

English and his wife are members of a group called Distorted Motorcycle Club, and were there, he told local TV station KCEN, to participate in a “meeting of the Confederation of Clubs and Independents to talk about legislation for Motorcycle Awareness month.” He noted in the interview that “part of your 300 weapons” that the police crowed about confiscating on the scene included his pocket knife.
