Waco-Like Behavior

On Feb. 12, 2013, after being involved in a week-long killing spree, Christopher Dorner engaged police officers in series of violent shootouts in the mountains near Big Bear, CA.  A San Bernardino Sheriff-Coroner’s deputy was killed.  According to an article in the L.A. Times,  officers, in an attempt to end the gun battle with the former-LAPD police officer, murderer, and fugitive, who was holed up in a cabin with supposed hostages, threw an incendiary tear gas grenade into the building.  The grenade reportedly caused the cabin to become engulfed in flames.  A charred body was later found; however, it cannot be confirmed (at this time) to be that of Christopher Dorner.  Although I have no sympathy for Christopher Dorner, I am left with serious questions regarding the actions of senior law enforcement officials.

As we near the 20th anniversary of the FBI’s illegal siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, TX, I can’t help but be reminded of that terrible day in American history.  On April 19, 1993, FBI agents, under the direction of Attorney General Janet Reno, raided the compound after a 50-day standoff.  In all, 76 people, many of whom were children, perished in the resulting fire.  That fire that supposedly killed Christopher Dorner was strikingly similar to that which killed the 76 Branch Davidians: both involved the use of CS grenades.

At what cost is law enforcement going after the bad guys?  As previously stated, I have no sympathy for Christopher Dorner, but I do have sympathy for any possible hostages he may have taken.  I have no true sympathy for David Koresh, but I do have abundant sympathy for the innocent Branch Davidians who were unjustly shot and burned to death on the orders of Janet Reno, who was the most senior U.S. law enforcement official at the time.

I hope that Americans, especially gun owners are paying attention to history.  Gun owners are the new terrorists in the eyes of the globalists.  While I do not anticipate massive gun confiscations to take place in the near-future, I do suspect that they will come.  When they do come, you can bet on law enforcement using incendiary grenades against those who are resistant.  These actions will lead to many more people being killed.
