"randy weaver weaver" Discussed on Slate Presents: Charged | A True Punishment Story

"In response to Harris shooting Degan, the surviving Marshall, say another Marshall opened fire and hit Sammy Weaver. They're not sure who it was. So that's the way the marshalls describe it. Here's the weavers version. They say one of the marshals shot the dog first. And then Sammy screamed you killed my dog you son of a bitch. They say he opened fire but didn't hit anyone and then turned and ran back toward the cabin. When one of the Marshall shot him they say Kevin then fired at the marshalls in retaliation or in self defense. And maybe Bill Degan or maybe Degan was killed by friendly fire. Here's how Randy Weaver told the story a few years later. On August, twenty first nineteen ninety two federal marshals shot my son Samuel in the back and killed him. He was running home to me. As last words were I'm coming, dad. Shot as little arm almost often they killed him by shooting them back in the back of the nine millimeter submachine gun the gun had a silencer on it. He was not wanted for any crime. He did not commit any crime. The marshals killed his dog right at his feet. He only tried to defend himself in his dog. Same was just fourteen years old. Bill deacons widow came to Washington for the Senate hearings. She didn't want to appear in front of the subcommittee herself. But she wrote a statement that was read by Senator Arlen Specter. The night before Bill last we went to a party for my sister-in-law's birthday while we dance to the last slow song. And he told me. Whatever might happen in Idaho. Just remember how much I love you. And I of course, do remember them. Today. Those words are strangely comforting at the time. You can imagine they were very unsettled. And unfortunately, of course, they proved to be prophetic. I remember saying something like come on. You're talking like someone's going to get killed out there. He responded. No one's going to get killed. That's why we're going. But this is probably the most dangerous guy. I've ever had a deal with. We sent Randy Weaver a letter asking talk with him and asked one of his former lawyers to put us in touch though, we never heard back his daughters didn't wanna talk either. But just this year. Randy gave an interview to a conservative news site in Montana. You can find the video on YouTube. It's an amateur production filmed with a hand held camera in a restaurant. Randy is sitting in a booth between two guys who act like fan, boys. He seventy but he's gone and small and he answers their questions in a hollow voice. That's often hard to make out three minutes in Randy says this about Bill Degan. Hires desecrated Marsh when you as more history, which are kinda cool got. The moment deputy marshal Bill deacon was killed the nature of the situation changed a federal deputy marshal shot to death near future officers and federal agents have taken up positions or under remote cabin near Naples, Idaho. Never before has north Idaho witnessed this kind of firepower from the federal government, and it's all because Randy Weaver Weaver hispan- because deacon was a federal agent the FBI now had jurisdiction over the scene. Members of the bureau's hostage. Rescue team arrived the next morning. Jackie Brown to call them hostage. Rescue team is offensive to my very census. They were in assassination team, you you would have to have an IQ five not to understand that. The Marshall service may have been working with partial information on the Weaver family, but at least they've been working the case for more than a year, the F B I came in blind. And it's crazy. How much bad information they were working with? Law enforcement agencies thought Randy Weaver had experience in Vietnam wrong. They thought the family had blue be trapped the property or that they had armed allies ready to fight alongside them both wrong. The ATF claimed at one point that Randy was a suspect in multiple Bank robberies wrong, they thought he might be growing marijuana wrong. The shooting gave rise to new rumors that Randy and Kevin Harris had fired on the marshals from the cabin using automatic weapons that the family had rigged their property with explosives that Randy and his family had the remaining marshals pinned down and refused to let them flee all of the bad information pointed in one direction that Randy Weaver was a very dangerous, man.

On the flight from Washington DC, the head of the FBI's hostage rescue team decided desperate times called for desperate measures. And this is when some rules of engagement are crafted, which are will become one of the most controversial. And indefensible parts of this case from the federal side, certainly rules of engagement our internal guidelines agencies use to define what kind of force can be employed under what circumstances standard procedure calls for deadly force to be used only in self-defense or defensive others. The FBI's new rules drafted on the plane and revised several more times on the scene where unusually aggressive the final draft read if any adult male is observed with a weapon deadly force, can and should be employed. If a shot can be taken without endangering the children. In other words, if you see an armed man shoot to kill this would change things in a way that would be tragic because obviously the weavers are always armed as the FBI descended on nor. Other night Aho the weavers retrieved Sammy's body and moved it to shed that night. The survivors huddled together in grief and terror, they wail and cry and believe that they're going to die the here. Helicopters, and they hear trucks in the woods. And and they believe that you know, that they are under attack and that by morning, you know, they might come and finish them all off..

So I took Taga for up to the airport, and it was fairly early in the morning and got up there. And it looked like a scene from Vietnam. And so I did a stand up from that airport that said something to the effect that you know, Randy Weaver was somebody who simply wanted to be left alone.
