A police officer inspects a motorcycle before it is towed away from the Twin Peaks restaurant, where nine members of a motorcycle gang were shot and killed, in WacoBy Jon Herskovitz AUSTIN, Texas (Reuters) - Texas laws that offer a high degree of protection to those who act in self-defense may make it difficult to prosecute the 170 people jailed for a Sunday motorcycle gang fight that left nine dead, with hundreds of weapons seized by police. Texas allows a person to use deadly force with legal arms in self-defense if they believe such force is immediately necessary to protect against someone using deadly force against them. A person can also claim self-defense to protect themselves if someone is prepared to use force against them for a variety of crimes including aggravated kidnapping, sexual assault or robbery.
