Lois Roden but how also clashed with rodents violent son George how believe that he was the new embodiment of Christ who had come to Earth to bring about the end of days. Over the years house confidence continued to grow and he convinced his followers to adopt an increasingly violent worldview but some of his followers began to question him soon. They turn against him fueling his paranoia and setting the stage for his fateful standoff against the US government. This is episode to the trail. It's early nineteen eighty-eight about a year and a half before mark. Bro Woke up with terrible worries about his religious leader. Vernon how today. The Sun slowly rises on the outskirts of Palestine. Texas Castle Hail Glow with branch. Davidian Camp Marlboro Shivers in the coal and hurries past the small. Shacks that dot the camp. He heads past the school buses. That have been turned into homes around the corner. He's got an electronic piano tucked under his arm and a big smile on his face. He's beaming because today's special Vernon Howell isn't just bros. Messiah he's also the leader of the rock band and the two were about to head into Waco for their very first recording session. Bro Reaches The van. He opens it up and set some music equipment carefully in the back then he jumps in the passenger seat burn house already at the wheel and flashes a grin how wears thin wire rim glasses and a rock and roll mullet. Whether it's a jam session or a Bible Study. How always suggests a world of exciting possibilities the to drive into town and how is in his usual talkative mood but bros? Only half paying attention he stares out at the Texas landscape blurring by and he thinks about how strange and how wonderful it is to be riding shotgun next to the Messiah. Bro has spent his entire life. Searching for God's truth just a couple of years ago he was living in California and working towards a masters degree in religious studies. He wanted to be a seventh day adventist minister but he was told that because of his poor eyesight he could not the set-back left him. In deep despair he was about to be saddled with useless degree. No future and no path to but then bro Met. Vernon how how took him in? He gave Bro. Deeper understanding of God and the Bible. But it didn't stop there with house. Instruction Bro had vivid dreams and even visions. He'd had them since childhood but now they felt stronger. More connected to God at First Bro. Was Skeptical. That Vernon Howe was a prophet but the Bible was full of stories of prophets. Why couldn't the same thing happened in modern times? And why couldn't he be a part of that story? How pulls up in front of the Big Planet Recording Studio in Downtown Waco? The two men step out of the van into the Crisp Air. They hold their instruments inside once. They're saddled how talked through the first song they're going to record. It's called Madman in Waco and tells the story of house shootout with George Roden at Mount Carmel. How recites the lyrics and Bro Nods? Along Bro didn't take part in the rate itself because of his poor eyesight but house upcoming trial for attempted. Murder is at the center of Bros. World how could go to jail and that would leave the movement without a leader or they could win acquittal and have a chance to take back Mount Carmel from George Roden. Bro Starts playing his keyboard improvising under the lyrics. But how cosimo harshly? That's not the party wants to wrong. Mood can turn like that and it's been happening more often lately bro Chafes. But he doesn't fight back instead. He begins to pick out the melody the way how wants it? He knows how was under a lot of pressure with the trial. Maybe when they finally make it back Mount Carmel. How will be less irritable right now? That's all broken hope for its April nineteen eighty eight on the third floor of the McLennan county courthouse. Judge Herman fits sits the front of the crowded courtroom waiting for George. Roden to be led to the witness. Stand fits has been a judge for nearly two decades the trial of Vernon Howell and his associates is one of the most bizarre cases he's ever seen fits is the prosecutors. They look nervous on paper. This case seemed airtight. How an eight of his buddies got dressed up. Hunting gear snuck onto another man's property with rifles and shotguns. Then began shooting at the property's owner. It's an easy case of attempted murder. Judge Fist thought the trial would last a few days at the most but then he met Vernon Howell realized. This trial would be anything but simple fits looks over at the defense table. How sits with his hands folded neatly in front of him looking calm as can be behind him the galleries crammed with people from house? Church or whatever it is the judge recalls the first day of the trial when he asked any potential witnesses in the gallery to stand and be sworn in women also sat there house lawyer tried to get them on their feet but they wouldn't budge wasn't until Hal himself gave them permission that every one of the women stood and offered to take the stand and things just got more colorful from there at one point the judge had to bar Hal and his followers from doing something unbelievable they wanted to carry an old dirty coffin into the courtroom as evidence fits thanks house about as crazy as they come but he can tell how has a strange kind of charisma. He's built sympathy with the jury. Fits watches as the bailiff leads. George Roden to the front of the courtroom Roden whereas a black Stetson hat. An orange prison jumpsuit heat ended up with a six month. Jail sentence after the county courts found an old restraining order against him. Barring him from living at Mount Carmel they also found that no one had paid taxes on the property for almost twenty years. Road and scowls at Judge Fits then how that house attorney the prosecution squirms and their seat rodent is their only eyewitness but they didn't want him to testify instead. He's been called to the stand by house. Defense attorney now approaches and begins his questioning. House Attorney Ass Road. If it's true that he dug up a body of one of his mother's followers road and doesn't hesitate he says. Of course he did. He was trying to raise her from the dead so that everyone would know he is the true Messiah Not Vernon how judge fits worms in his seat. That's it he thinks that's all the jury needs to acquit right there. They'll dismiss rodent as crazy and they'll accept house claim that he was just trying to get innocent people back into their homes. The judge glances over at how he's unnerved to see how smiling back his eyes focused intently on the judge. George Roden may be off his rocker. Thanks fits but that doesn't mean how is any more sane. Bits thinks about the best possible outcome after all the dust settles from the trial. He hopes there will be peace insanity at Mount Carmel for all the men women and children crowded into.
