Did Texas Authorities Warn About Biker Gang Rivalry Previously?

ABC News

Texas authorities issued a bulletin to law enforcement agencies earlier this month that warned of increasing violence between two rival biker gangs blamed for the shootout outside a restaurant in Waco on May 17th, writes ABC News.

The bulletin from May 1st, obtained by ABC News affiliate WFAA-TV in Dallas, said there had been skirmishes and talk of war between the Bandidos and Cossacks for months.

The bulletin was issued by the Texas Joint Information Center run by the Texas Department of Public Safety.

It said the conflict might start because Cossacks had been refusing to pay Bandidos dues for operating in Texas and for wearing the Texas patch on their vests without the Bandidos’ approval.
