1992—The Ruby Ridge, Idaho Massacre

Famous Trials, Copyright 1995 | Gerry Spence On Why He Agreed to Defend Randy Weaver
Attorney Gerry Spence explains why he chose to defend Randy Weaver: “Randy Weaver’s wife was dead, shot through the head while she clutched her child to her breast. His son was shot, twice. First they shot the child’s arm, probably destroyed the arm. The child cried out. Then, as the child was running they shot him in the back. Randy Weaver himself had been shot and wounded and Kevin Harris, a kid the Weavers had all but adopted was dying of a chest wound. The blood hadn’t cooled on Ruby Hill before the national media announced that I had taken the defense of Randy Weaver. Then all hell broke loose…. I met Randy Weaver in jail on the evening of his surrender. His eyes had no light in them. He was unshaven and dirty. He was naked except for yellow plastic prison coveralls, and he was cold. His small feet were clad in rubber prison sandals. In the stark setting of the prison conference room he seemed diminutive and fragile. He had spent 11 days and nights in a standoff against the government and he had lost. His wife was dead. His son was dead. His friend was near death. Weaver himself had been wounded. He had lost his freedom. He had lost it all. And now he stood face to face with a stranger who towered over him and whose words were not words of comfort… Randy Weaver’s principal crime against the government had been his failure to appear in court on a charge of possessing illegal firearms. The first crime was not his. He had been entrapped–intentionally, systematically, patiently, purposefully entrapped–by a federal agent who solicited him to cut off, contrary to Federal law, the barrels of a couple of shotguns. Randy Weaver never owned an illegal weapon in his life… In this country we embrace the myth that we are still a democracy when we know that we are not a democracy, that we are not free, that the government does not serve us but subjugates us. Although we give lip service to the notion of freedom, we know the government is no longer the servant of the people but, at last has become the people’s master… When Randy Weaver failed to appear in court because he had lost his trust in the government we witnessed the fruit of our crime. The government indeed had no intent to protect his rights. The government had but one purpose, as it remains today, the disengagement of this citizen from society. Those who suffered and died in the Holocaust must have exquisitely understood such illicit motivations of power… When the government agents were confronted with the barking dog, they did what men who have been taught to kill do. They shot Striker. The boy, barely larger than a 10-year-old child, heard the dog’s yelp, saw the dog fall dead. and as a 14-year-old might, he returned the fire. Then the government agents shot the child in the arm. He turned and ran. the arm flopping, and when he did, the officers, still unidentified as such, shot the child in the back and killed him… Kevin Harris witnessed the shooting of the dog. Then he saw Sam being shot as the boy turned and ran. To Kevin, there was no alternative. He knew if he ran these intruders, whoever they were, would kill him as well. In defense of himself, he raised his rifle and shot in the direction of the officer who had shot and killed the boy. Then while the agents were in disarray, Kevin retreated to the Weaver cabin… Later that same day, Randy, Kevin, and Vicki Weaver, Randy’s wife went down to where the boy lay and carried his body back to an outbuilding near the cabin. There they removed the child’s clothing and bathed his wounds and prepared the body. The next evening Weaver’s oldest daughter, Sarah, sixteen, Kevin, and Randy went back to the shed to have a last look at Sam. When they did, government snipers opened fire. Randy was hit in the shoulder. The three turned and ran for the house where Vicki, with her 10 month old baby in her arms stood holding the door open. As the 3 entered the house Vicki was shot and slowly fell to her knees, her head resting on the floor like one kneeling in prayer. Randy ran up and took the baby that she clutched, and then he lifted his wife’s head. Half her face was blown away…
The Burning Platform, Aug 22, 2021 | THIS DAY IN HISTORY – Shootings at Ruby Ridge – 1992
“A marshal shot and killed the dog, prompting Sammy to fire at the marshal. In the ensuing gun battle, Sammy and U.S. Marshal Michael Degan were shot and killed. A tense standoff ensued, and on August 22 the FBI joined the marshals besieging Ruby Ridge. In the second day of a standoff at Randy Weaver’s remote northern Idaho cabin atop Ruby Ridge, FBI sharpshooter Lon Horiuchi wounds Randy Weaver and Kevin Harris, and then kills Weaver’s wife, Vicki.” Vicki was murdered by FBI sniper Ron Horiuchi as she stood with her baby in her arms.

DocumentaryHeaven, date uncertain | American Experience: Ruby Ridge
“The standoff itself would mesmerize the nation and many believed that this was proof of the federal government being out of control. In this film, we hear from eyewitnesses including Weaver’s daughter, Sara, and the federal agents involved in the shootout; all accounts and footage featured make for a riveting account of the event which helped give rise to the modern American militia movement.”

1993—The Branch Davidian, Waco, Texas Massacre

The Washington Post, June 10, 1993 | KORESH CALLED ‘911’ WHEN RAID BEGAN
“Moments after about 100 ATF agents began their assault, Branch Davidian Wayne Martin, a top Koresh lieutenant, frantically dialed the local emergency telephone line. “911, what’s your emergency?” asked a dispatcher with the McLennan County Sheriff’s Department. “There are men, 75 men around our building shooting at us,” said Martin. “. . . Tell them there are children and women in here and to call it off.” Lt. Larry Lynch, of the county sheriff’s department, apparently unsure of what was unfolding, then came to the telephone. “Hello, I hear gunfire. Oh {expletive}, hello, who is this? Hello . . . God Almighty . . . .”

The Libertarian Institute, Sep 27, 2019 | When the Government Comes for Your Guns – Branch Davidian Edition
Excerpt-1: “Like thousands of other people in Texas, the Brand Davidians bought and sold guns for a profit. Dick Reavis tells the story, “In 1991, he (Koresh) began studying armaments, and buying and selling guns. He pretty quickly found out there’s a lot of money to be made at gun shows, and he and other people started going to gun shows. And they bought and sold.” Reavis continues, “We now say, or the press now says, and most people say, they stockpiled weapons. All gun dealers stockpile weapons, all gun shops stockpile weapons. We call those stockpiles an inventory.” (Ibid., 23:45)”
Excerpt-2: “In June of 1992, the ATF assigned Special Agent Davy Aguilera to investigate whether Koresh and the Branch Davidians were manufacturing, or dealing, illegal guns. Carol Moore writes in The Davidian Massacre, “As of December 1992, Aguilera’s only evidence that the Davidians were committing any such crimes was that they had bought a number of legal weapons and legal gun parts which, with the help of a few parts they had not purchased, can be converted into machine guns. However, the BATF’s suspicions remained pure conjecture.” (Moore, p52)”

Waco History, Feb 28-Apr 19, 1993 | The Branch Davidian Siege
“Extensive investigations took place following the siege, and the events that transpired in Waco transformed the way federal officials conducted future operational tactics. Four months after the fire, a federal grand jury indicted twelve of the surviving Branch Davidians for aiding and abetting the murder of federal officers, along with the unlawful possession of firearms. Four members were acquitted, and the remaining eight were convicted, but only for firearms-related offenses. By 2007, all members had been released from prison. Nothing remains of the original compound, but a new Branch Davidian community now exists on the property called Branch, The Lord Our Righteousness.”

Federal Attorney General Deprives Legal Cuban Refugee of Asylum

The Miami New Times, Apr 21, 2020 | The Myth of Elián, the Boy Who Was Plucked From the Sea
“Elián had escaped Cuba on a makeshift raft with his mother and 13 other refugees. Only three survived the journey: 5-year-old Elián, 22-year-old Arianne Horta, and 33-year-old Nivaldo Fernández-Ferra. Elián’s mother, swallowed by the sea, died during the crossing. Toward the end, Elián found himself alone, adrift and dehydrated. He would later say dolphins helped him survive by keeping his inner tube from sinking.”

CubaNet CubaNews, Apr 22, 2000 | Federal agents seize Elian in predawn raid
“Elian Gonzalez is held in a closet by Donato Dalrymple, one of the fishermen who rescued the boy from the ocean, right, as government officials search the home of Lazaro Gonzalez for the young boy, early Saturday morning, April 22, 2000, in Miami… More than 20 agents arrived at the home shortly after 5 a.m. and used rams on the chain-link fence and on the front door. A short time later, a woman and man brought Elian out of the home and put him in a white van that drove away…

Elian’s daughter, Marisleysis, who has been called his surrogate mother, made an emotional address to the protesters. She said it was no longer a Cuban-American issue… “This is now an American issue because we live in America,” she said. “Janet Reno and Bill Clinton … betrayed this country, not just my family.”
