It's ok Lit, we all know that Koresh was a creep and a pedo, I don't think anyone can truly dispute that. What they dispute is how it was all handled. It appears you can't seem to get past the Government is always the good guy mentality though. That mindset has probably been drilled into your brain these past few years while you were submersed in your "education". For the life of me I can't recall a time where you thought the Government was wrong, well except for 2000-2008, then everything was wrong. Pretty narrow minded strain of intellectualism you have contracted there, if you ask me.
I'll try to make it easy enough for you to understand. Before the raid, there were allegations of abuse and rape. Those allegations justified police activity. After the raid (right now), we know that there was abuse and statutory rape.
When I talk about "allegations," I am referring to the knowledge held by law enforcement at the time of the raid. When I refer affirmatively to "rape and abuse," I mean what was actually going on, as we now know.
It appears you can't get the gist of the argument that I'm opposing. Here it is: the United States government acts criminally and are more dangerous than shooters who kill rooms of children. My view: No.
