Motorcyclists hold protest at State Capitol

Saturday afternoon bikers held a rally on the steps of the State Capitol - asking state lawmakers to step in on the deadly Waco biker shooting case.

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Saturday afternoon bikers held a rally on the steps of the State Capitol – asking state lawmakers to step in on the deadly Waco biker shooting case.

They’re unhappy with the way the Waco Police Department is handling it, along with the lawyers.

Four months have gone by and authorities have released almost nothing about the gunfight beyond a vague initial description of a brawl spiraling out of control.

“We’re hoping to bring attention to our elected representatives, there are over 450,000 registered motorcyclists in this state, we have a huge voting block and we do vote,” said Mel Moss, one of the motorcyclists at the protest.

The shooting in Waco earlier this year involving bikers and police left nine bikers dead and 177 arrested. No indictments have been made in the case.
