Waco

Did anyone else watch this?
I recorded it and caught up with it today.
It has affected me more than anything except for "Chernobyl".
There are monsters out there!

Re: Waco

Don't know what you mean, Tess.
What is/was 'Waco' about, and when was it on please?

Re: Waco

It wasn't the cult that upset me it was the response from the government forces.
There was no need for it, they killed children in there.
If you haven't seen it, the story was written by the negotiator who tried to stop the carnage, please watch it, you will change your mind.
It was horrific, not giving them a chance to escape in the end, just teargassing, which ignited and burned the place down.
Some great acting in it too.

It was shown on Alibi, I don't know if they have catch up, but Netflicks may have it.

just goes to show how callous the American government of the day could be.

Not one of Americas proudest moments in it's history

It upset me a great deal, and I don't normally get emotional over much.

If that was a true portrayal of what really happened then the US government and it's forces should be ashamed of themselves.
