The Special Prosecutor, John Danforth, officially closed his office in February, 2001. We concluded that his report was so inadequate that it should not be the final word about the Waco incident........ Waco represents the worst disaster in the history of federal law enforcement. And yet, we still don't have all the facts with respect to what happened. If Congress cannot get to the bottom of what happened at Waco, what confidence can we have about smaller incidents involving federal law enforcement agencies?

The Full truth about Waco will only be discovered when documents, videotapes, and other evidence that have been withheld from the public are released, and when witnesses who have lied under oath, confident that perjury charges will not be brought, finally tell the truth.

Here we must level our most grave indictment. For most Americans, it might verge on the unthinkable-- but then, FBI conduct, issuing written orders to shoot on sight at Ruby Ridge, and then drafting orders to shoot civilians upon disobedience at Waco-- have been unthinkable in the past.
As the fire spreads, the telltale signatures of automatic weapons fire become visible on the FLIR tape, gunfire going from several FBI positions, going toward the building's rear. Some gunfire comes from the positions near the CEV, directed toward the gym wreckage. There had been gunfire earlier-- but now the gunfire reaches a crescendo as the fire spreads. All in all, nearly two hundred shots are visible, raking the rear of the building.
The only likely targets at that point are people trying to get out of the fire.

Janet Reno allowed her agents to inject poisonous gas into a building, after using armored tanks to raid and destroy the building. When the building caught fire, her agents shot and killed people who tried to save there own lives by feeling the flames. The agents refused to allow the fire department to rescue those trapped inside. In the end, eighty six innocent men, women, children, and babies died from the cyanide poisoning, the bullets, and the tanks. Most were reduced to ash.

I conclude that the FBI fired shots on that day, I conclude this based on the ground-view videotapes taken from several different angles simultaneously and based on the overhead thermal tape. The gunfire is there, without a doubt.

Perhaps the most grisly of all was the photographic evidence of the killing of women and children emerging from the underground storm shelter... the FBI was shooting down into the Davidians’ tunnel as people were attempting to get out...
The FBI hadn’t merely fired shots that day, it had hosed down the back of the building with rapid gunfire.

Our government attacked defenseless children, women and men as old as I am 75 and celebrated it. Where are their souls that permit them to lie about it to this day?

When I was first asked to be involved as a member of the panel, I thought the main problem was going to be understanding the psychology of the people inside the compound. But as I got into it, I quickly became aware that the psychology of the people outside the compound was more important.

Police abuse remains one of the most serious and divisive human rights violations in the United States. The excessive use of force by police officers, including unjustified shootings, severe beatings, fatal chokings, and rough treatment, persists because overwhelming barriers to accountability make it possible for officers who commit human rights violations to escape due punishment and often to repeat their offenses. Police or public officials greet each new report of brutality with denials or explain that the act was an aberration, while the administrative and criminal systems that should deter these abuses by holding officers accountable instead virtually guarantee them impunity.

The federal government was absolutely out of control there. We spoke in the jury room about the fact that the wrong people were on trial, that it should have been the ones that planned the raid and orchestrated it and insisted on carrying out this plan.

Waco is the preeminent symbol of government out of control, of law enforcement turning into a marauding army, and of federal agencies acting as if they are responsible to no one.

Perjury has become the coin of the realm in federal law enforcement. People’s homes are invaded because of lies. People are arrested because of lies. People go to prison because of lies. People stay in prison because of lies, and sometimes, bad guys go free because of lies.
Lying has become a significant problem in federal court cases because the rewards to federal law enforcement officers can be so great and the consequences so minimal... They lied, hid evidence, distorted facts, engaged in cover-ups, paid for perjury and set up innocent people in a relentless effort to win indictments, guilty pleas and convictions... Rarely were these federal officials punished for their misconduct. Rarely did they admit their conduct was wrong.

Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. To declare that in the administration of criminal law, the end justifies the means... would bring terrible retribution.

Justice Louis Brandeis
