On the night of March 8, 1971, eight seemingly ordinary people showed extraordinary courage and carried out one of the most powerful acts of non-violent resistance in American history. In a search for evidence of whether the FBI was spying on Americans in order to suppress dissent, they broke into an FBI office in Media, PA, a sleepy old town southwest of Philadelphia that once was a stop on the Underground Railroad, the network of secret routes slaves traveled from the South to freedom.

Waco - A New Revelation Actors: BATF, Branch Davidians, David Koresh, Texas Rangers FBI Directors: Jason Van Vleet Producers: Mike McNulty amazon.com review: Needless Deaths, Unbridled Law Enforcement and Government, All in One Disturbing Tale Let me preface this review by stating that I am a retired Chicago Police Sergeant who now teaches at a Community College. So I approached this video without bias against law enforcement. In my 32 years of service and prior military service Rules of Engagement, Use of Force and other Limitations placed upon Law Enforcement and Military Personnel were the standards by which I lived for most of my life, so to see these standards brazenly violated by my Government was disturbing. To see my Government use a gas on U.S. civilians that it could not use in combat due to the Geneva Convention, was quite bluntly disturbing at the least. I used this video as part of my Criminal Justice 101 class. My prior knowledge of the Waco Massacre, (and that is the only way to describe it, a Massacre that was produced by an out of control FBI, a vicious Attorney General and incompetent President.) was limited to the Mainstream Media of that era. Remember, this happened before the internet was providing second by second news coverage and news was for the most part limited to the editing and censorship of ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN. So to see what this video showed was both shocking and disturbing. The video provides factual insight and interviews never seen before of law enforcement officers both Federal and State who were on the scene. The officers themselves realize that this incident was a violation of the U.S. Constitution and basic principles of American Justice. Waco was an Outrage and tragedy that could have and should have been avoided. Certainly, David Koresh was a madman, nobody can deny that. However, there were numerous opportunities to arrest him without the "staged" invasion of his compound that resulted in the unnecessary deaths of federal agents and civilians. Yet none of the government officials responsible for this tragedy went to prison. The Attorney General Ms. Reno, who claimed responsibility remained in power. The FBI violated it's own Rules of Engagement, but the officials responsible were allowed to retire with pensions. The innocent women and children who were burned alive received no justice, only painful deaths. This video is important because many young people have no idea that this event took place and the magnitude of the carnage resulting from the incident. Prior to seeing this video my students did not realize the ability and ease of the Federal Government in violating the rights of citizens and the ability of the Government to kill citizens with complete impunity. And remember, Waco was before the Patriot Act and the Snowden revelations, so only God knows what is in store for us in the future. The video states facts that were either ignored or covered-up by past news coverage and points out that much information related to the incident is still kept from public scrutiny.Yes Waco occurred over twenty years ago so some may see it as history. Yet it is as timely as today's news, because the issues of Civilian Militarization of Police and the Raw Unbridled Power of Federal Law Enforcement is an urgent priority to all citizens TODAY. I urge anyone who is even remotely concerned with the aforementioned issues to see this video and anyone teaching Civics , Political Science, or Contemporary American History should consider this video as required viewing.
