And people want more government?

For those wondering how free a country we live in, Reason magazine has an excellent recounting of the events surrounding Ruby Ridge and Randy Weaver:

The eight-week trial of Randy Weaver and Kevin Harris grew out of such a bizarre set of circumstances that it’s not surprising it took a while for the jurors to sort things out. It probably also took them a while to come to grips with the idea that government agencies could so blatantly engage in entrapment, lying, cover-ups, and the killing of innocent people. As one alternate juror, excused before deliberations were completed, put it: "I felt like a little kid that finds out there is no Santa Claus"

Here's video with Randy Weaver and his daughter years later.
