To Whom It May Concern:

This is an appeal for the determination given by the Dallas Fusion Center in response to the below request for situational awareness bulletins related to outlaw motorcycle gangs (OMGs) over the past decade.

Motorcycle gangs have been identified as one of the top threats to public safety in the state of Texas. It is thus difficult to believe that the DFC has not issued a single such bulletin in the past 10 years. As such, I respectfully request that you remand this request for a good faith search and provision of responsive documents.

Thank you,
Shawn Musgrave
