Ditto. Ruby Ridge was straight-up premeditated murder. Federal assasins shot his teenage son in the back and the sniper shot this wife while she was holding their baby. All because of a supposed shot-gun with a barrel 1/4” too short.
If they would put the small army and all the resources they invested in attacking the Weaver family on the Mexican border they could just about stop illegal immigration!
“All because of a supposed shot-gun with a barrel 1/4 too short.”
I’d like to reword that: “All because of a $200 tax.” That’s right, they killed Weaver’s family over $200.
It will sound trivial, but the Govt also killed his dog. Showing they will murder and destroy property to make a political statement.
Also, from what Ive read, the undercovers wanted him to saw the shotgun so that they could get him for selling a sawed shotgun. They had to manufacture intent and make him a neo NAZI in order to kill his family (including the dog).
On a personal note, I treated my dog growing up as a family member and would defend it as such.
