April 19, 2007: Still No Waco Justice

April 19. Anniversary (1775) of the shot heard round the world, the first bullet fired in the American Revolution. Anniversary (1943) of the final battle of the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising. Anniversary (1933) of FDR's announcement that the U.S. would abandon the gold standard. Anniversary (1995) of the Oklahoma City Bombing. And the fourteenth anniversary (1993) of the government massacre of eighty-two innocent men, women, and children on Mount Carmel in Waco Texas.

I'm still waiting for Waco Justice:

I had grown complacent of late, having not remembered for a while that "Bill and his boys killed 82 people at Waco--22 of them innocent helpless little children." L. Neil reminded me, and the whole thing came back in dying color.

I had an idea a while back that I almost wrote down, but couldn't bring myself to share, but it's back with a vengeance, so I've gotta get it off my chest. I doubt I can let Waco rest until every federal agent on the ground on April 19, 1993, and everyone in each chain of command, including Janet Reno and William Jefferson Clinton, is tried for crimes against humanity, and until those who are found guilty by a jury of twelve are executed for their crimes. I'm not going to hold my breath for this to happen, but there's no statute of limitations on murder, so we've got 20 or 30 years before the vermin die of natural causes. I can wait.


So what's the normal way to execute war criminals? A firing squad of course. And we can very easily turn it into a fund raiser for the survivors and family of the victims. Sell $100 raffle tickets to choose the riflemen and riflewomen who off the scum. I'd pay that in an instant for a chance to put a bullet into one of these baby killers. I'll bet there are at least 100,000 others who would join in. A cool $10 million. Give each shooter an army surplus rifle with an engraved label commemorating the festivities ("This weapon was used to execute Janet Reno on April 19, 2003"), and one cartridge to fire on the joyous day. Imagine showing your grandchildren one of these.
