Description

After rival bikers and police engaged in a deadly shootout at a Waco restaurant, many questions lingered about what prompted the fight, who fired the fatal shots and why so many were arrested - even seemingly innocent. But police and prosecutors stopped talking and a judge imposed a gag order Most reporters let the story drop - but not Houston Chronicle Reporter Dane Schiller, a long-time organized crime specialist. His doggedness resulted in a series of stories - significant take-outs and regular blog posts - that shed light on the bad blood between biker gangs, raised questions about how police overreacted to the gathering and exposed the weaknesses of the charges against many of those arrested.
