Speaking of Mad Max, there was some real Sons of Anarchy action this weekend: nine dead and eighteen injured (no bystanders or cops) at what's being described as a five-gang battle at a "Twin Peaks" restaurant on Highway 35. Police closed down the whole market area that included the Twin Peaks franchise, as well as some downtown streets and two bridges over the Brazos River.
That's more casualties than I usually expect from a news item about a dust-up. These guys weren't just blowing off steam in a fight that got a little out of hand: there was concentrated and effective murder.
The emphasis in a lot of reports is on "bikers," but I'd put it on "gangs." Waco does appear to respond aggressively to this kind of thing. There's certainly no talk of "space to destroy."
