Waco Revisionism: Police Retract ‘1,000 Weapons’ Claim, 4 of Dead Had No Texas Criminal Records

Several facts have surfaced that call into question the initial accounts of the Waco Police Department on Sunday’s deadly shooting at a motorcycle rights meeting. Waco police released information Wednesday morning that “1,000 weapons” had been found at the scene of Sunday’s shooting that left nine dead, but after the story received wide exposure they significantly revised that estimate down and stated, “We stand corrected.” In addition, four of the nine dead had no criminal records in Texas, according to the Associated Press (AP).
