Waco: American Apocalypse Review 2023 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Great visuals also with realistic looking 3D animations of the scene to offer a proper view of the situation and the terrain from a tactical point of view. This is a very strong tactically oriented documentary, also with people honestly sharing their thoughts and feelings, putting color into the black and white image of reality we tend to get to see through the media and the outlets of the justice department.
When I look up firearm laws in 1990s Texas, it seems to say that they were allowed to own military style firearms. Looking up the background of the warrant, it said that it was for owning destructive property. According to the documentary, this was served after shells for grenades that could be filled up with explosive powder fell out of a postal package.
The part of the documentary that confused me and that made me have to get the facts straight was that an agent stated that they had their evidence for the warrant to be upheld when the cult members started shooting with automatic firearms. That agent for as far as I can see didn’t understand the nature of the actual warrant, in that it was for grenades.
Having a sect with a religious leader is not okay, but might sometimes not be against the law. People are entitled to their beliefs. Having a leader to me goes against people having their own beliefs. They need to be allowed to question. It doesn’t say they weren’t allowed to question. They just seemed to have gotten stuck on his charisma. Here the cult leader did have sex with children, so that’s against the law. Grenades also were against the law.
The point being that due to the contradicting account by the agent regarding the firing of the guns being proof of validity of the warrant, it got me to question whether the cult broke a law like that, even though the warrant was for the grenades. This made me feel like the agents might be way off about a lot of things. In the way they approached it, I think they were.
That the situation was handled in the wrong way was reflected by the cult stating that if the agents ceased fire, they would cease fire. A lot of cult members and children walked out during the next 51 days. They were allowed to leave. That is a very strong indication that some pretty hefty mistakes were made on the part of law enforcement officials in terms of how you approach a situation like this.
When you with a huge armed force approach people that are armed, they will feel threatened. Although the cult had weapons, they weren’t openly threatening anyone. Kids would play outside. The proper response would be to first sit down and talk to them. The cult leader was a cult leader and explaining his thoughts and views was his thing. If you just ask him to talk about that and maybe show you around, most likely you wouldn’t need a warrant.
He wanted to speak. I think they should have just let the man speak. Then you can act appropriately. Arrest him for having sex with kids. Maybe he would’ve given up the grenades when prompted for that, because grenades were illegal. Don’t start off with any judgment of your own. It just should have been handled differently.
The documentary offers many views that allow you to approach the entire case from a broader point of view, which I feel is good. It’s really well edited and honest in representing people’s individual views, which aren’t necessarily the views of the law.
