Waco: Biker Objects To Postponement of Trial, Says DA Has No Case, His Cell Phone Was "Scrubbed Like Factory Resets"
From the Waco Tribune:
An attorney for a biker arrested in the May 17 Twin Peaks shootout complained that the McLennan County District Attorney’s Office keeps postponing an examining trial because it has no case against his client and charged that a prosecutor lied to him.
Conrad Beyer, a San Antonio attorney representing Bill Jason McRee, twice has scheduled examining trials in Waco’s 19th State District Court and both hearings have been postponed, including one set for Friday.
While a prosecutor and judge say Beyer agreed to the second postponement, Beyer filed an objection Friday alleging Assistant District Attorney Amanda Dillon misled him about resetting the examining trial on Friday and failed to file a written motion asking for a continuance.
“They are trying to move it back and back and back and try to push the case to a grand jury and are trying to keep from having to put together a case they don’t have,” Beyer said.
No examining trials have been held yet, but a visiting judge who formerly presided in courts in Bosque, Comanche and Hamilton counties has been approved to hear about 17 examining trials in coming weeks.
Beyer said he has watched a three-hour video of the May 17 shootout captured by cameras at Twin Peaks. He declined comment about the video because of a court order that prevents its dissemination, he said.
He said he has seen no video shot by police dashboard cameras.
He said some of those arrested have been given their cellphones back and they all were returned “scrubbed like factory resets,” or with data wiped out.As we can see, the Police may have "scrubbed" some evidence, just as they/someone, apparently, scrubbed the cell phones.
Meanwhile, the Aging Rebel is reporting that the Appeals Court has struck down Waco's gag order, and the Attorneys will soon be free to discuss the little evidence they have been told about:
This morning the official censorship in Waco began to falter. First an appeals court told Judge Johnson to lift the gag order on Broden and Clendennen. The higher court told Johnson he could stall for another week but then Broden and Clendennen must be allowed to talk about the case.
Almost simultaneously Peterson announced that he had “changed his mind” and would no longer preside over any of the examining trials. A retired judge named James E. Morgan will decide what evidence the defense attorneys can see.
What happened today was a reaffirmation that all of the United States of America, even Texas, even Waco is a part of a nation governed by law, not by corrupt nepotism. Implicit in the ongoing official coverup is the undeniable notion that Waco has had something to hide.
As the examining trials unfold America might begin to glimpse what that is. Clint Broden can finally begin to tell the country what he thinks Waco has been hiding sometime next week.
Eventually the secrets that have been hidden and the lies that have been told might be exposed.
