A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Ruby Ridge is one of the most notorious examples of the unwarranted use of federal force in modern times. Randy Weaver, an anti-government conservative, owned a large number of guns, many of which the government believed he obtained illegally. Weaver's family had been under federal surveillance for some time. On August 22, 1992 the FBI descended on Weaver's cabin with a number of snipers and armed agents to serve him with an arrest warrant. When agents encountered Weaver's 14 year-old son outside, they shot him and the the dog. Eventually, a federal sniper shot Weaver's wife through the door of their home, ending an eleven day siege. No photos available. (I wonder why) Movie about this incident shocked the nation and underscored how far the federal government will go to control citizens who disagree with them.
