February 28 of this year will mark 25 years since the 51-day standoff and deadly siege on David Koresh and the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas. While ABC News has put together a new documentary with new details and survivor revelations, it still seems that they are somehow providing cover for the heavy-handed manner in which the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms handled the entire situation.
Keep in mind that the infamous Ruby Ridge incident had just occurred several months before in August 1992, in which Randy Weaver’s wife and son were gunned down by federal agents. Weaver was later arrested along with a family friend and it was all over a couple of shotguns of which he sawed the barrels off, something that should perfectly fine under our Constitution if the DC government actually obeyed the Constitution. By the way, though it’s no real consolation, the sniper that murdered Vicki Weaver with her baby in her arms, Lon Horiuchi, was promoted while 12 other agents were given light reprimands, but Randy Weaver won a settlement against the Justice Department for $3.1 million.
ABC also did a report 25 years later in August 2017 claiming that Ruby Ridge had become a “‘rallying cry’ for today’s white nationalists.”
Both the Waco incident and the Ruby Ridge incident did have at their center, false teaching concerning prophecy. No one can really deny that.
I don’t think anyone can deny that David Koresh was a charismatic individual who led people astray, but that was not why the government went after him. The claim is that the ATF went after Koresh because a UPS driver delivered packages to him and apparently, one broke open and there were hand grenades inside.

The only reason to excerpt is to score yourself some blog traffic.
Don’t be a dirtbag like that.
Keep in mind that Randy cut the barrels to a legal length
unfortunately the stocks were too short so the overall
length was illegal.
No reason to kill his wife and kid and dog.
25 years and still no one in the government has paid for murdering all those people.
Huh, this is the first I ever heard about the hand grenades
A UPS driver described a package that had broken open on delivery to the Branch Davidian residence, revealing firearms, inert grenade casings, and black powder
I’m sure Janet Reno has gone to hell
That’s what the Oklahoma City Bombing was about: payback on a federal building exactly 1 year after the Waco raid. 187 dead.
Killers gotta kill, just ask jihadis.
…none of which was illegal.
Absolute worst case was that the Davidians, either as a very few individuals therein or as a corporate entity, had failed to pay a $200 tax on making something – to wit, mere paperwork violations.
As of yet (and I watched the events unfold mostly live) I _still_ haven’t seen what the actual charges were warranting a “dynamic entry” of SWAT-type cops swarming the building & roof.
