The day this verdict was read was a great day for America, even for someone as skeptical as me. Why? It illustrated that the state, which can bring vast resources against the accused, is still held in some check by the systems designed to hold it in check.
That a bunch of gun owners are so quick to convict another American based on what they heard on the news, with no first hand knowledge of the situation, and simply accept the picture painted by the talking heads in the talking box, is frightening.
Amazing Weaver got even the paltry "justice" he did. And no surprise why the Davidians got none. Mention a child and our emotion quickly trumps our gray matter. We believe the talking box that lies to us about nearly everything else and the state that lies and steals from us daily. Then, the verdict is reached, and some still call for the state to go after her for money? WTF?
