One Image Shows Just How Many Thugs Were Involved in the Waco Biker Shootout That Claimed 9 Lives

What allegedly started as an argument over a parking spot between rival biker gang members, in the bathroom of Twin Peaks restaurant in Waco, Texas, on Sunday ended in what police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton called:
“One of the most violent scenes I’ve seen in my 34 years as a police officer in Waco.”
CNN reports that police, expecting trouble after hearing that at least three rival gangs were meeting at the restaurant, were waiting outside when the fistfight devolved into a knife fight, then a gunfight. Then, the thugs shot it out with police.
By the end of it, nine people were dead, 18 more were hospitalized, and a rather astonishing amount of people were arrested.
How many?

Close to 200.

That’s a lot of thugs.
Here are a couple individuals:

…And here’s a little collection that gives you an idea of just how many men were there:
One hundred shots were fired during the course of the gun battle. There were so many suspects that the entire area around the restaurant, including several other businesses, had to be shut down and cordoned off like a corral:
At least five different biker gangs were in attendance, including the Cossacks, Bandidos, Scimitars and Vaqueros.
It isn’t clear if each gang played a part in the deadly melee, though they are all considered criminal entities by the Federal government.
The Bandidos alone are considered the one of the most powerful, criminally-active Motorcyle Clubs in the world, with around 2,000 members spread across chapters all over the U.S. and Europe.
