Description

The 1992 Ruby Ridge armed standoff between the Weaver family and the federal government. Three people died and the American modern militia movement was born. Did the government use excessive force in dealing with Randy Weaver, who refused to show up to court and face weapons charges? Or did Randy Weaver's own consistently paranoid and terrible decisions bring the wrath of Big Brother to his door? This one got me fired up! I heard way too much about this incident growing up in Idaho, and after doing the research I felt like I'd been lied to. Will you agree? Sorry about my terrible voice and Hail Nimrod!

Tru Crime

A "badass" highly trained sniper didn't know he shot a unarmed woman holding a baby in the head? Randy was crazy and wrong but he was shot mourning his son unarmed and his son was killed by federal agents trespassing on his property? The Weavers were out of line but for a few misdemeanors and being set up by the government for weapons charges they didn't deserve to die. The government was way out of line and I'm surprised a self avowed libertarian would defend the government on this.
