    Default Scandalous: Ruby Ridge

    Been watching this series on Fox the last couple weeks. What a tragedy. I was in college at the time, so I was kind of insulated from the news of the world, got studying to do. But a reporter at the time is talking about the "snipers" being deployed, trained, got the latest and greatest equipment, told to shoot to kill on sight. They missed, at least twice, two times they wounded and killed they wrong person. Where did they get these highly trained snipers? Kind like the movies. The good guys get one shot, one kill. The bad guys hit one guy three times, and he's still alive (Fury). So they got these snipers from the other side? The last episode is next week, but in the preview, Waco happened what, six months later? I was still in college, so missed that one too.

    Had the honor to meet Mr. Weaver years ago at a local gun show. Picked up his book and he autographed it for me.
    You could see the hurt and loss in his eyes. What a bunch of ego happy LEO's can be sometime just to say the upheld the law.

    Shooting at humans is considerably different from shooting at game or shooting at targets.
    The difference between a Socialist and a Communist is that the Socialist doesn't have all the guns yet.

    That phrase alone should be a criminal offense.

    I agree with everything that is said here. Saw the show also.
    The Fed's definitely screwed the pooch on this one.
    His continued resistance to have his day in court made them look like a bunch of keystone cops in the media so they went in heavy handed.
    But I still can not stop from saying, and I know I will get a lot of crap from many on this forum.
    Weaver was an idiot for making and selling sawed off shotguns. Period. He knew it was illegal and did it anyway. For the money he needed or because he feared the white supremacists around him.
    His actions put his wife and children in danger.
    That said, it still does not give the Fed's the authority to kill women and children who are not actively engaging them with deadly force.
