A year after the fact, the brief, deadly, biker brawl in the parking lot of the Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas on May 17, 2015 remains a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma. Nine people died and nineteen more were wounded. Numerous news outlets "explained" the event as a "real life Sons of Anarchy episode." Until now, that has been as insightful as writers for numerous national and international publications have dared to be. From the very beginning, local authorities in Texas have tightly controlled the narrative of what happened in Waco that Sunday in May in order to save themselves from embarrassment and criminal and civil liability. Almost two hundred people face long prison terms for conspiring to act criminally although so far local prosecutors have refused to state what each of those defendants actually did other than try to survive. The prosecutors' refusal to talk about the case has led to widespread and often wild speculation. Now, the shroud of propaganda and lies has finally been lifted. In the exhaustively researched The Twin Peaks Ambush: A True Story About The Press, The Police And The Last American Outlaws, Donald Charles Davis tells the true story of that tragic day to you. And what you read will surprise, touch and outrage you.

"Anita Arvast, through her research, attendance at the trials, and jailhouse interviews with one of the convicted, details a fascinating case of justice gone awry: at least one man who appears to have been wrongfully convicted, a case by the Crown built around an unreliable witness, and the unsettling revelation that a likely killer has walked free - and been paid for his assistance. Bloody Justice is a remarkable examination of a shocking crime, and challenges our notions of justice, retribution, and fairness - both in the legal system and the criminal underworld - and shows us that the truth behind these crimes is nothing less than tragedy." -- Page 4 of cover.

Dave Burgess, son of a career Marine and the nephew of the founders of the Mustang Ranch, managed the Mustang, built and owned the last remaining piece of the original brothel and became a Hells Angel when he was 40. Along the way he made friends and enemies. Most of his enemies worked for the government. In July 2007, Dave Burgess was charged with possession of cocaine and marijuana after a supposedly routine traffic stop in Evanston, Wyoming. Forty-five days later the drug charges were dropped and he was arrested instead for possession and interstate transportation of child pornography. One of the children portrayed in what is still the largest kiddie porn collection ever discovered was the 14-year-old daughter of a fellow Hells Angel. Angels throughout the world were outraged. Hells Angels haters and police gloated. Burgess was convicted after a hasty, four day trial and sentenced to 20 years in federal prison. And, he was framed. This book describes how.

With previously unrevealed insights into the outlaw world of extreme violence, drugs, corruption, sex, treachery and retribution. All names have been changed, and identities and events obscured. This is the only way the story could be told. 'this story is a true account of the birth of outlaw motorcycle clubs in Australia. there was no template for us, it just evolved. It shows our simple creed: loyalty to the club and respect for your brothers.' David Spiteri was a founding member and long-time President of one of Australia's first outlaw motorcycle clubs from its inception in the early 1960s through to the early 2000s. He has been uniquely placed to witness the clubs develop from loose affiliations of riders to the well structured and well connected groups we see today, with links to police, politicians and lawyers. In this never-before-told inside story, Spiteri puts himself at risk to reveal everything from the drug trafficking which funds the clubs' operations to the extreme violence that continues to make them infamous. For the first time, the true extent of the clubs' corruption will be exposed, and the treachery and subsequent retribution enforced by their own brand of law known as 'the code' is brought to light. A truly shocking and compelling look at a fascinating subculture.

This eBook (Part One) is the first half of the hardcover book, and contains approximately 99,000 words and 80 color photos. “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is a slang term for banishment which is used by all 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs when a member leaves the club of his own volition or is expelled, and the remaining members are not happy with the actual reason that the member left the club. In the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, the term “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is their version of being banished to motorcycle club member hell, for an ex-member that has been deemed “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” is no longer allowed to associate with any member of the Bandidos nor attend any Bandido function. In this expose of his life as a member of the Bandidos Motorcycle Club, Edward “Connecticut Ed” Winterhalder allows the reader a rare look into how major decisions were made by Bandido leaders all over the world, how the Bandidos expanded into the worldwide dynasty they are today, and how the Bandido machine operates on a day-to-day basis. While a member of the largest 1%er motorcycle club in the world, Connecticut Ed was privy to much information about the inside workings of the club and what the future held for it. Regularly assigned projects by the club’s international leader, he was responsible for defusing the war between the Hells Angels and Rock Machine in Canada, establishing new Bandido and support club chapters worldwide, organizing the club into a well-oiled machine, and mediating internal power struggles between club members. As founder, President and Secretary of the Bandidos’ Oklahoma chapter, for the first time in history, Connecticut Ed is your personal guide as you learn what it takes to establish a new Bandidos chapter and keep it running for the first few years of its life. In his thirty years of riding and/or associating with various 1%er outlaw motorcycle clubs, he gives the reader a unique inside look into the world of today’s 1%er motorcycle clubs. In his last few years with the Bandidos, Connecticut Ed realized that the club’s ideology was changing due to the fact that methamphetamine use was now becoming an accepted part of everyday club life. After failing to alter the destructive course the club was on, he left the Bandidos Oklahoma chapter in September 2003 “OUT IN GOOD STANDINGS”. But because of the wealth of information he possessed about the inner workings of the club, Connecticut Ed’s “out” status was changed to “OUT IN BAD STANDINGS” by the world President of the Bandidos just before Thanksgiving 2003. Was he that much of a threat to the worldwide leadership of the Bandidos? Find out for yourself by reading this book……

From the acclaimed author of Hit the Target and Big Week, an in-depth account of the legendary World War II combat group, the Flying Tigers. In 1940, Pearl Harbor had not yet happened, and America was not yet at war with Japan. But China had been trying to stave off Japanese aggression for three years—and was desperate for aircraft and trained combat pilots. General Chiang Kai-shek sent military aviation advisor Claire Chennault to Washington, where President Roosevelt was sympathetic, but knew he could not intervene overtly. Instead, he quietly helped Chennault put together a group of American volunteer pilots. This was how the 1st American Volunteer Group—more commonly known as the Flying Tigers—was born. With the trademark smiling shark jaws on their P-40 fighters, these Army, Navy and Marine pilots became a sensation as they fought for the Chinese. Those who initially doubted them were eventually in awe as they persevered over Rangoon despite being outnumbered 14-1 by Japanese aircraft; as they were described by Madame Chiang Kai-shek as her “little angels” and by a Chinese foreign minister as “the soundest investment China ever made”; and as they ultimately destroyed hundreds of Japanese planes while losing only a dozen of their own in combat. Two of their veterans would later earn the Medal of Honor—and as a group, the Flying Tigers managed to rack up a better record than any other air wing in the Pacific theater. When Tigers Ruled the Sky is a thrilling and triumphant account of their courage and their legacy.
