    For starters,

    In May 1992, Chief Deputy Daniel Weyenberg of the McLennan County Sheriff's Department called the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (ATF) to notify them that his office had been contacted by a local UPS representative. A UPS driver described a package that had broken open on delivery to the Branch Davidian residence, revealing firearms, inert grenade casings, and black powder. On June 9, a formal investigation was opened and a week later it was classified as sensitive, "thereby calling for a high degree of oversight" from both Houston and headquarters.[20][21] The documentary Inside Waco claims that the investigation started when in 1992 the ATF became concerned over reports of automatic gunfire coming from the Carmel compound

    Ok so he isn't poor... only poor people deserve compassion when the government sends in puppy-stomping jackboot thugs?
    So what? He's entitled to squatter's rights?

    You probably drenched yourself when you found out he got arrested.

    How is it not? the founding fathers objected very much the same thing.

    calling people domestic terrorists because they stand up to the government is the lowest form of speech but something i expect from harry reid. This country was formed by standing up against the government. the government works for US not themselves.

    those soldiers out there basically were ready to shoot at their employer. the people that put that force on the ground should be held accountable and fired for terrorizing their boss.
    that is what people have forgotten. the government works for US not the other way around.

    Not to mention those government thugs destroyed private property and caused death to his liveyhood all of which they are repsonsible for and they owe damages.

    technically yes since you can lose your home to a squatter and it only takes a few months if that.
    he has a case for the same reasoning the government is suspect to the same laws that we are. the government is not above the law.

    Bundy must believe he's entitled, sounds very liberal to me.

    While government is not above the law, let's say I'm a rancher and my cattle graze on government owned land, and I pay my fees on a timely basis.

    The government then tells me, hey Jiveman, we're not going to let you graze your cattle in this certain area anymore because of environmental or wildlife issues.

    A. I should agree and go on about my business of making sure my cattle are on the range where they're supposed to be.

    B. I should ignore the government and just do what I damed well please because my family's been using this range forever.

    What would be the most logical, ethical and lawful thing to do?

    While the standoff in Waco was a disaster in the end, I don't understand why you would defend David Koresh. As to the laws he violated: Child Abuse laws, Child Molestation, and Statutory Rape to name a few.
