Manage episode 247258544 series 1743908
One of the most emotional and fascinating stand-offs in American history is the one between the Weaver family and the FBI Hostage Rescue Team at Ruby Ridge, Idaho. This all started when a group of US Marshals were attempting to arrest Randy Weaver for a weapons offense. After an initial exchange of gunfire that left people on both sides dead, the FBI HRT responded to resolve the issue in what became one of the most polarizing cases that touched everything from gun control, the use of deadly force by law enforcement, and federal oversight and over-reach. This case should be mandatory reading, and we hope this episode is a good primer.
