Following Waco, Cossacks finally make debut in DPS gang report

The Cossacks Motorcycle Club has roots going back to the 1960s, but it took a recent deadly clash at the Twin Peaks in Waco for the group to make its debut in the Department of Public Safety’s annual Texas Gang Threat Assessment.

The new report, which was released Monday, hits the streets a bit late this year, but includes a few lines about the Cossacks, and the melee with the Bandidos Motorcycle Club. The Bandidos have for years been considered by law enforcement to be among the largest “Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs” in the United States.

In the motorcycle world, the Bandidos are considered to be on par with the Hell’s Angels. In the DPS report, they are listed in the same classification as the Bloods, Crips and the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas.

While the Bandidos have been in the report for years, this appears to be the first mention of the Cossacks. It is unclear if the report was re-worked after the Waco clash, and prior to public release, to note the Cossacks.
