This morning I'm watching Oxygen's Timothy McVeigh: In Defense Of. I'd also recommend catching this as it very interesting and it somehow fits into my thoughts about what is currently going on in U.S. politics. Early on in the episode the head defense lawyer talks about why he tool on the case and said something about (badly quoting here) "If there is ever a time when a crime is so bad that the nations laws should not apply, that will signal the death of our democracy. That makes sense to me. (I didn't follow Waco closely, nor the Branch Davidians, so I am also learning lots of things new to me.
