The last couple episodes of Frontline were on Waco/Oklahoma City and Ruby Ridge.

No, because of the psycho religious people. I think. It's sort of a vague memory of a formless fear.

It was definitely PBS, but I think it was American Experience? It's streaming for free on their site/app.

I totally relate. Ruby Ridge, Waco, True Detective...they've all tapped into this vague fear I had as a kid around religion and the occult. Ruby Ridge is especially interesting to me because of my familial roots in Idaho.

They held out for months, and capped it with nine days of gunfire, armed standoff, and the rotting corpses of the family mother and son in the same cabin.

And came away with about $3.5 million in damages from the state. Helluva a price for a wife and kid.

I was reading this morning that they sued for $200M, before settling on the $3.5M. People associated with the case on the federal side said the Weavers probably would've won.

If the FBI didn't blatantly entrap this guy buying those sawed off shotguns the family would still be in that cabin on top of that mountain, living peacefully in fear of god knows what and we'd all be better for it.

Yep. I am kind of going down the rabbit hole, learning how this and Waco gave birth to the modern militia movement, and how the white supremacy groups have splintered and settled into various new iterations around WA, OR, ID, and MT.

Right but true prepped wouldn't do anything to attract attention to themselves or their property. Prepping is about surviving on your own and forget the rest of the world. These guys were anti government "survivalists"

I am trying to talk the wife into letting me purchase a handgun or shotgun, but I've gotten nowhere after about a year.
