"Inside mount Carmel, rather than surrender to the FBI. The evidence included audio from FBI bugging devices, which picked up Steve Schneider, ordering the start of the blaze. Later, another survivor confessed the koresh had ordered the building set on fire in the event of an FBI attack. But other survivors, including David thibodeau, continued to deny these accusations. They claimed the FBI started the blaze when their tanks fired hundreds of volatile tear gas canisters into the building. The bulk of the evidence supports the government view that the Davidians started the fire, yet legitimate questions remain over who is to blame for the events leading up to the tragedy. Many ask whether the Davidians might have run to safety if the government hadn't used harsh techniques during the standoff. Critics also questioned the ATF's decision to launch a military style assault on mount Carmel rather than waiting to arrest David kresh outside the compound. Others were outraged by what they saw as an unprovoked violation of constitutionally guaranteed protections. The right to religious expression and the right to bear arms. In some cases, this outrage fueled further violence. In 1995, Timothy McVeigh carried out the deadly bombing in Oklahoma City, and claimed it was a retaliation for the government's actions at Waco. Ultimately, what happened at Waco may never be fully understood. What is clear is that both sides struggle to find common ground. David koresh painted the government as oppressive and bent on destroying an innocent religious community. Meanwhile, many in the government reduced the Davidians to a dangerous doomsday cult. Neither portrait was completely accurate. Perhaps if more people stopped to recognize the humanity on both sides of the standoff, there might have been a much different and better end to the story of the siege at Waco. From wondering this is episode 6 of Waco from American scandal. In our next episode, I speak with Eric Benson, a senior editor at the magazine Texas monthly. In April 2018, Benson wrote a series of articles that helped shed new light on the tragedy at mount Carmel. We'll discuss how the public viewed Waco back in 1993 and how the events still shapes American life today. If you like our show, please give us a 5 star rating and leave a review.

High winds strike the cheap glass window panes, and as thibodeau appears down, he sees the familiar faint outline of tanks on the federal perimeter. Tiptoe shakes his head. The forces outside have no respect for the lord or for divine inspiration. He thinks. Koresh has finished writing the first of the 7 seals, and now he started dictating the second. But the FBI sees koresh's revelations as just another delay tactic. They've made it clear that their patience has run out. Thibaut reaches down and feels a cool grip of his Glock pistol. Koresh and Steve Schneider issued him the gun, along with a rifle which he uses for his guard duties. Still, thibodeau seriously doubts he could shoot another human being. Not even someone who played bagpipe noises at ear piercing levels all throughout the night. To those size, it's been so long since he's had a good night's sleep. He can feel himself nodding off. But then his eyes snap open. It's the phone line the FBI negotiators use. Thibodeau wonders why they're calling it this hour and picks up quickly. Hello? Hello. This is Byron sage. Can I speak to Steve? Steve's still asleep. Could you go get him, please? I need to talk to him right now. Yeah, all right, hold on. Thibodeau stumbles down the corridor, muttering to himself. He's sick of the FBI's demands, all the harassment. He enters the men's dorm room and sees Schneider asleep on his bottom bunk. His dark blond hair fanned out on the pillow. Thibodeau nudges him gently. Hey, Steve, Steve, wake up. The FBI wants you on the phone. I think something's happening. Schneider bolts awake startled. What's going on? I don't know. I don't know. It's fire and sage. She wants to speak with you right away. He says. Suddenly, thibodeau hears the familiar rumble of tanks. He opens the window shade above his bed and the two men look out. Down in the yard tanks are advancing, but this time they have long metal poles extended out in front of them, like menacing claws, and they're not slowing down. Schneider's eyes go wide. This is it. We're under attack. Thibaut rushes down the hallway, sounding the alarm. Right then a voice booms over the loudspeakers. We're putting tear gas into the building. David and Steve lead your people out of there. Give it a freezes for a moment. They've prepared for this kind of scenario, and all the adults have gas masks under their beds. He grabs his and continues to the women's dorm. As he races the hallway, the voice on the loudspeaker once again rattles the building. This is not an assault. We are not entering the building. The tear gas is harmless, but it will make your space uninhabitable. Turn out now. But thibodeau has no intention of following these instructions. He sure he'll be shot if he acts as the building. So instead he continues down the hallway. People emerge from their rooms tired and confused and knocking into each other. Ebola pushes through the crush of bodies looking for Michelle and the kids. A picture of serenity and her smiling face, which is too small for any gas mask. The mothers know to put wet blankets over the children as a barrier against tear gas. They know how to protect themselves. And if the FBI thinks anyone is walking out of here, they don't understand what it means to have a faith worth dying for. Across the road from mount Carmel in the small, one story house, fire and sage leans forward at the window. He's holding his microphone, which is connected to the loudspeakers across the road. And he's straining to see what's happening at the compound. It looks like the first tanks have reached the Davidians, and so he speaks again into the microphone. This is not an assault he repeats. He urges people to exit. He waits and watches, squeezing the microphone tighter, trying to make out any sign that people are exiting the compound. There's a crackle on the FBI radio, and the commander of the tactical team comes on. He announces that the first tank has delivered tear gas into the compound. As sage listens to the update, he pictures the tank nozzle, breaking through a window, and delivering a steady stream of noxious white gas. He thumbs the button of the mic again and repeats the call for surrender. And right then, a voice comes over the radio, shouting, compromise, compromise. Sage's heart sinks. This is a code word, and it means only one thing. Someone inside mount Carmel has fired.

"Always have unfinished business in Waco. It's early April, week 5 of the standoff. At the FBI command post Byron sage sits at a desk, waiting for an important meeting, a meeting that could set the standoff on a new course. After Gary nesse was removed as chief negotiator, sage stepped in as the de facto leader of the negotiating team. He was sorry to see Nestor go, but he's continued to push hard for a peaceful solution, even if progress has been slow coming. Sage has spoken on the phone with David koresh and Steve Schneider almost every day for 5 weeks straight, but it's been two weeks since any adult has walked through the doors of mount Carmel. Koresh hasn't released any children in more than a month. Sage stands up. It's time for his meeting with the FBI's commander Jeff Jamar. Sage walks past rows of agents all huddled over computer monitors. They have dark rings under their eyes, and they look worn fin, just like sage. Everyone is sick of living off cold pizza and they're tired of David koresh and having to organize their lives around the whims of a madman. Sage enters to Mars office, the commander is hunched over his desk, his expression stern. He gestures for sage to sit and asks if there's been any progress in getting people out of mount Carmel. Sage size and shakes his head. Jamar leans in. He wants to know the truth. Can they get David koresh to surrender? Sage takes a moment, swallows hard. It's difficult to admit after weeks of effort, but he tells Jamar what he believes. The negotiator seemed to have exhausted their options. At this point, sage is convinced that David koresh doesn't care about anyone inside. All he sees are ways to fulfill his own grandiose vision. Sage bites his left before offering his final assessment. He's not sure what koresh will do if they don't act soon. Jamar nods, he says he's glad sage has come around on the point because the agency has a new solution in mind. It's a plan codenamed Jericho. Sage recognizes the name Jericho from the famous siege in the Bible. Jamar picks up an aerial photograph of mount Carmel. He points to the compound and explains that according to the plan, tanks will approach mount Carmel with specialized equipment, outfitted with 30 foot arms. These arms will act like pipes that can penetrate the compound. Through these pipes, the tanks will then inject tear gas going room by room. They'll release the gas over a 48 hour period. They're not looking to force the Davidians out immediately. Instead, they'll gradually shrink the living space inside the compound until the entire building is saturated with tear gas. At that point, the Davidians will have no choice but to come out. Jamar looks up from the aerial photograph. He says that once they put Jericho into action, they'll need someone to tell the Davidians about the tear gas and to help talk them out of the building. He wants sage to fill that role. Jamar also explains that the highest levels of the FBI are on board. Soon, the FBI director will help present the plan to Janet Reno. President Clinton's new attorney general. And if Reno gives the okay, the tactical team will immediately put the plan into action. But right now, Jamar wants to know if sage is on board with the plan. Sage lets his mind imagine what will surely be a frightening scene inside mount Carmel. He can picture the thundering tanks, the white clouds of tear gas filling room after room. It's a risky plan, but keeping koresh in place feels even riskier. This has to end on the FBI's terms. So Byron sage tells Jamar, he's in. It's April 14th, 1993, and now day 46 of the standoff. David thibodeau smiles as he bounds up the stairs to the second floor of mount Carmel. He feels light on his feet, his former balk has wasted away after 6 weeks of combat rations, and the hardships of the long siege have purged his last spiritual doubts. For the first time in his life, thibodeau feels like he understands what faith truly means. At the top of the stairs, thibodeau stops and grins. Here, David koresh sits up against the wall, surrounded by a large group of followers, thibodeau sees his own hope reflected on their faces. Earlier today, koresh announced that he will end the standoff once and for all. God spoke to the prophet at the end of Passover. He instructed koresh to write down his interpretation of the 7 seals. Koresh said it will take two weeks, three tops, so he called the FBI and said as soon as he finishes writing the seals, he'll surrender. There will be no change of plans. Thibodeau scans the crowd and spots his wife, Michelle. She sits with serenity, her four year old daughter, who she had with koresh. Thibodeau goes and sits down beside them and serenity crawls into his lap. He smiles at her as she settles in. Settling on koresh is a look of calm and clarity, and then he begins to speak, exalted and proud as if God is flowing through him. He begins dictating the first of the 7 seals next to him, Judy Schneider types furiously on a typewriter. She takes down every one of his words, even though for the last 6 weeks, she's had a wound in her hand where she was shot. Crash's voice rises, he says that he who has chosen to open the seals will be persecuted exactly as he and his followers have been persecuted these long weeks..

"It's just before dawn on March 25th, 1993. Outside Waco, Texas, the early morning sky, is still full of stars. A gentle wind drives through the Prairie grasses, and at mount Carmel center, everything and everyone is still quiet. But suddenly a screeching noise fills the morning air. It's the high pitched wine of a dentist drill, and it's coming from loudspeakers, which play the terrible sounds at ear piercing levels. Inside the men's dorm at mount Carmel, Steve Schneider grimaces from his bottom bunk. He hears groans and muttering all around him. People are stirring in the darkness miserable. It's become impossible for anyone to sleep. Now that the FBI's blasting torturous sounds through giant speakers all night. And that's not the only problem inside mount Carmel, the fresh food is now gone, and so members of the community are living off their stockpiles of rations. It's bland, barely animal, and even their drinking water is running low. Their water well runs on electricity, and the FBI shut the power off long ago. Schneider forces himself out of bed, slips on his jeans. July's a kerosene lantern and steps into the hallway. The orange glow flickers against the wall, which is now lined with bales of straw. This is how they'll protect themselves against bullets if the FBI launches an all out attack. As Schneider heads down the hallway, he hears a rumble at the back of the building. He pauses, his heart racing. That's the sound of government tanks advancing. Schneider races up the stairs to get a look from the second story window. In the hallway, he sees David koresh, who still seated on the floor. Crash grits his teeth and strains to sit up, two men lock eyes briefly. Schneider can see that just like him, koresh is livid. The two have an anger at the government that feels electric. Schneider reaches the window and Peters out, he can see the army tank, silhouetted by the FBI's spotlights. They're heading straight toward the rear wall of mount Carmel. This is it think Schneider is pulse quickening. The final battle. Schneider is about to sound the alarm when the tank suddenly grinds to a stop. He hears metallic crunch, the tanks begin moving a pile of debris with their bulldozer blades, and now he can see what's buried under the rubble. It's metal and glass. What used to be a red Chevy ranchero, which the tanks crushed last week. Schneider exhales audibly, his shoulders slumping in relief. No, not an attack he yells to koresh. No Schneider thinks. It's just the FBI continuing to terrify the people inside mount Carmel. Snyder leaves the window and sits down across from koresh. He feels all the adrenaline drain out of him. He's left with nothing but deep exhaustion. David, I can't take any more of this. How do we make this end? Koresh clenches his jaw and scowls. This ends when God says it ends, we'll wait until he speaks to me. David wasting away here is no victory. We're going to run out of food and water. We need to do something. And we need to do it now. Crash looks into Schneider's eyes, and right then Snyder recognizes the flash of insight that sometimes comes to the prophet. Or we'll have our victory, Steve. God will show me the path to deliverance during Passover. I know he will. Schneider shakes his head. The government agents are already impatient. They've been pressing him harder and harder to send more people out. But David Passover is two weeks away, even if we could hold out that long, the FBI wouldn't let us. They don't care what we believe. I'm not talking about beliefs. What I'm telling you is come Passover, God will show me the way. Schneider nods, feeling a strange mix of anger, love, and dread. He reminds himself for what seems like the millionth time. Only David koresh holds the key to the community Salvation. But he wonders if the prophet will ever turn Nike. Schneider stands up and returns to the window. Down below the tank drivers continue their senseless destruction. They'll come for us soon, Schneider thinks. They'll come and we'll be powerless to stop them. Koresh is sentencing them to die, Judy, his former wife, all the people in mount Carmel. He lives with and loves. Schneider stares out the window into the horizon. He catches the exact moment that dawn breaks and turns the Prairie gold in red. And for Steve Schneider, it looks like the light from a distant fire.

"March 3rd, the fourth day of the standoff. In the afternoon, Steve Schneider looks out from one of mount Carmel's second floor windows. Schneider watches his clouds float off in the distance. He's trying to ignore the terrible thunder coming from below, where another government tank is Cris crossing the yard. Already, these tanks have level two of the buildings of the compound. They cut a mobile home in half just for fun. The tanks crushed a truck in the parking lot, and even ran over the kids go karts. Schneider can't make sense of it. The negotiators seem like honest people, but they're still on the side of these tank driving warriors. Men who will stop at nothing to persecute God's people. Schneider turns from the window. He sees koresh sitting in the hallway with a few of the faithful, gathered around him. Schneider's glad to see the crash seems more energetic today, anger at the FBI has helped revive the prophet. Koresh addresses the followers, he tells them that he's already sent 20 children out of mount Carl. He's played by the FBI's rules and still koresh says the government forces are punishing them. Koresh told the FBI about God's commandment that the community needed to wait inside mount Carmel. Crash his voice rises again, but instead of respecting the people's faith, the FBI sent in tanks. It just goes to show that the earthly forces can not be trusted. Schneider sees most of the people nodding in agreement. Crash then dismisses his followers and beckons Snyder closer. He asks how this morning's call with the FBI went. Schneider says he delivered koresh's complaints. The tanks were destroying their personal property, and in doing so, they were destroying the evidence of the ATF's original attack. The negotiators apologized, but they said that the tanks weren't under their control. Caress shakes his head angrily. The government might think they have all the power. Kress says, but one thing is certain, the FBI will not be getting any of his children. He gives Schneider a fierce look. The children he's fathered are divine beings, he says, they will sit with him at the final judgment. They must share his fate on this earth. Schneider swallows hard. He understands that koresh's prophecy must be fulfilled, but the thought fills him with dread. It's march 7th and the 8th day of the standoff, Gary Nestlé rides the elevator down from his hotel room in Waco. He's bleary eyed after just a few hours of sleep. The elevator door dings open, and he sees the lobby is filled with even more reporters than yesterday. Newscasters and suits chat with each other while cameraman log heavy bags of equipment. Nestlé Harris reached the front door, grateful that he's not the one in front of the cameras at the daily press briefings. As Nestor drives to the FBI command post, he looks at across the Brown Texas Prairie. He feels far from his home and family in Northern Virginia. He misses them. And the feeling is even harder because right now he feels embarrassed for the FBI. The entire world has been watching as FBI tanks tear apart mount Carmel. One day, a reporter asked an FBI agent to explain the destruction and all the agent could manage was a cheeky response, saying that, hey, their FBI agents, not professional tank drivers. Reaches the command post and heads toward the negotiation room. It's been 5 days since koresh backed out of the surrender deal, but Nestor has no time to hulk grudges. And thanks to the tactical team's aggressions, he no longer has the upper hand. Instead, the negotiators have spent their time apologizing. Recent discussions haven't yielded much progress either. So Nestor has decided to shift their strategy. He needs to rebuild trust at mount Carmel, and he has a sense about who he needs to talk to. The next day, inside mount Carmel, Julie Martinez sits on her bed, combing her daughter Aubrey's hair. Her three year old plays with stuffed animals on the floor. When there's a knock on the door. Steve Schneider pokes his head into the room and says that FBI negotiators are on the phone and want to talk to Julie. Steve adds that David said it was okay. Martinez's heart races. She's known this call was coming, and she feels a mix of hope and dread. The last time she spoke to the FBI, they tried to pressure her to leave with her children, and she refused. All Martinez wants is to be together with her kids, but she can't imagine the government allowing that if she left the safety of mount Carmel. Still, the FBI agents keep pressuring her to leave, and so Martinez asked if she could speak to her older brother about the decision. The FBI agreed, but only under a specific condition, they would find her brother and have him record a message for her. Martinez doesn't trust these officials, but she hopes she can hear her brother's voice. If he's able to take care of the children, then she be willing to risk coming out. That way, even as she's thrown in jail, her kids would still have family. Martinez puts the phone to her ear, an agent greets her and says that they were able to find her brother, and they have a recording to play. There's a click, and then Martinez hears her brother's kind voice come over the line. She feels a surge of hope. But the feeling quickly fades, her brother says that he isn't capable of caring for her children. He says he loves her and has some advice. Surrender so that her family can be safe. The tape recorder clicks off and her brother's comforting voice gives way to silence. The FBI negotiators back on the line. Julie, I think your brother's advice is wise. Bring the children to safety now. Why wait? Because if we come out, I'll go to jail. That's not true, Julie. You said you didn't do anything. You and your children will be coming to safety. Martinez remembers the bullets she saw flying over her daughter's head the day of the raid. How can I believe anything you say? You don't want to help. You're just waiting for the right time to come in here and kill all of us. Wait, what? Why would we want to do that? Because that's what they wanted in the first place. They came shooting at us and climbing in our windows. Okay, now look, there were some things that shouldn't have been done, but. Martinez hears the negotiator, take a deep breath. But Julie, how would you want this to be resolved? What do you want to happen? For God to come and deliver us from our enemies. And at that, Martinez hangs up the phone, she's glad she told the agent the truth. These people love to make her feel like a bad mother, but she's not a bad mother. She loves her kids. She got off drugs for her kids and mount Carmel is the one place where they can be together. It's where her family will stay. No matter what the government does.

"A cramped room inside the FBI command post. This is the negotiation room Nestor quickly assembled after he touched down. And while it's small, it gives his team a quiet place to talk one on one with David koresh. Nestor slips on a headset and listens as koresh talks live with a negotiator. Right now, koresh is upset that the FBI cut his phone line to the outside world. The world needs to hear his message, he says. Then koresh pauses, and he makes an offer. He's willing to surrender along with everyone else inside mount Carmel, but only if the government agrees to put his message on national radio. Lesnar's eyes go wide, he didn't expect this kind of breakthrough so early. He waves to the negotiator and signals for him to pursue this, and so the negotiator asks what sort of message koresh wants to convey. Koresh answers immediately. He wants to talk about the book of revelation, the book of the Bible that deals with Armageddon. The negotiator proceeds cautiously. He wants an insurance that this won't be some kind of farewell statement, followed by a mass suicide. Koresh bristles at the suggestion that's not what he's after, he says, he just wants to share the lord's message of Salvation. The agent makes a counteroffer, koresh could record his message on tape for the FBI to review. Then broadcast. If they can agree to something like that, they just might have a deal. But koresh could do something to help sweeten the deal, the negotiator says. If he sends out more children now, he'll build up greater trust with the FBI bosses. Crash considers an agrees. He'll send out more children, along with the tape. Negotiator signs off and Nestor gives him a thumbs up. Nestor knows that this is exactly the approach they need to take. They have to stroke koresh's ego while gently pushing him toward a surrender. Nestor removes his headset, and rushes out of the cramp negotiation room. He can't wait to share the good news. And while he knows that some of the FBI will look skeptically at the steel, this is their best shot and the standoff peacefully. Inside mount Carmel, David koresh hangs up with a negotiator. He slowly shifts his position on the blankets. Another spasm of pain racks his body and he grits his teeth. His wound is still seeping badly. He feels even more lightheaded than before. And yet he's barely had a moment to rest. He's been organizing his followers, telling them where to bury the dead, how to operate a night watch, and now the FBI is on the phone day and night. Koresh feels woozy and slow, and now it's more certain than ever. He knows he's dying and must say goodbye to his followers. He calls Steve Schneider to his side and asks him to bring the people to him one by one. First the men, then the women. He also tells Schneider to spread the word about their exit plan. God has brought them all through the attack. Now they're leaving on their own terms. It's a victory. Crash begins paging through his Bible, picking out passages for his sermon. As soon he hears the voices of his followers, some are weaving. Other sound joyous as they learn the news about the upcoming surrender. Soon, the male followers begin to file past koresh. He smiles weekly as he gazes at his flock. The followers, he's grown to know and love. David thibodeau, Wayne Martin, Steve Schneider. Soon, the women are at his side. Crash is wives come first. Rachel, bending low to kiss him, Michelle, smiling through tears. Sheila Martin reaches koresh, and he says that before the full surrender, Sheila will need to send out her three youngest children. Sheila looks at him fearfully. And lowers her eyes and knots her head. Early the next morning, at 3 a.m., Sheila Martin stands with her family in the entry hall of mount Carmel. Everyone in the compound has gone to sleep. Sheila glances at the front door, which is riddled with bullet holes. Her breath grows labored, and she turns to her husband Wayne. She was terrified to hand their children over, but Wayne has assured her that koresh is making the right decision. It's hard for her to believe, but she trusts Wayne, and she knows koresh is trying to protect the women and children in mount Carmel. Sheila looks down at her ten year old son, Jaime. The plan is to bring him out first, Jaime sits in his wheelchair, waiting. He was crippled and blinded by meningitis when he was an infant, and she was heartbreaks and how much suffering he's already endured. Yet now he looks peaceful and calm. Jaime's brothers and sisters kiss him on the forehead and say goodbye. He turns and smiles at them. Sheila then takes a deep breath and scoops up Jaime's frail Bonnie. She carries him through the doorway and Wayne follows behind her, pushing the wheelchair. Sheila walks slowly toward the armored car where the FBI men are waiting. She sings softly to Jamie. He's always been calm by music, and she tries to keep her voice from breaking. When she reaches the vehicle, an agent stretches out his arms and takes her son away with surprising gentleness. Wayne sternly reminds the man that they'll be expecting updates on Jaime's safety. The agent assures him they'll take good care of the boy. Sheila choked back a song. These strangers will be Jaime's new reality, and she'll have to do the same terrible exchange with her 6 year old son and four year old daughter. They'll go out in the morning, along with a tape of koresh's sermon to the world. Sheila praise a surrender will come quickly and that she'll see her children again soon. Koresh has spoken often of the sacrifices necessary for Salvation. But Sheila never imagined that giving up her children would be one of them. It's two 30 p.m. on March 2nd, day three of the standoff. In a hallway in mount Carmel, Steve Schneider sits near David koresh, a small radio is positioned between them. The two listen to the last words of koresh's sermon, which is playing on the Christian broadcasting network's radio station. Schneider breathes a sigh of relief. The world has heard David's message. The FBI has fulfilled their end of the deal. Now, all that's left is for koresh and his followers to surrender. Soon, the march out in front of the news cameras ready to share whatever fake God sees fit. Snyder looks over a crash. The prophet is staring into space, his eyes glassy and distant. Schneider tells koresh he's going to make sure the people are ready and receives a slight non response. Schneider hurries to the women's dorm, looking for Judy. She was shot.

"Thank you. And Steve Schneider, who is a great American, and we're honored to have all of you guys and kind of talk about something important that is local in our focus, but national in nature. Absolutely. And so however you guys want to take it, rob, do you want to start? And then we can kind of, let me do my best to frame it. And then I know Jason Steve will be able to add all kinds of insight to it. In our community, the kineto unified school districts, there's two newspapers in the Canelo valley where I reside. And as this Bryce and Steve, these two newspapers, one is the guardian, the other, is the acorn. The guardian did a paper, did an article called third grade teacher promotes gender confusion in the classroom. And it was an article writing on behalf of Steve Schneider, who's on the program with us. Who was standing in defense of his third great daughter, who was told by the teacher to now these are the new pronouns of this fellow student in your class, and this is a book I want to read to you on transgender. And then expose the children to a video without parental permission. Steve took issue with at the kineto guardian on his behalf, wrote a very, very clear and concise article, everything and it was true. Good reporting, the acorn, which is a defender of what I would say that California teachers association and the district itself took great offense to it. Then the news channels came out CBS. They did a whole thing on it. And then there was graffiti at that elementary school and they blamed Steve Schneider for it. The police came to his house. He'll tell you more about that. He wasn't even there, so it was crazy. I'm wondering if they're going to arrest the people that said they witnessed him doing it, which is why the police searched his home to begin filing a false police report. Exactly. And so we've had people show up in the school board meetings. They've been dismissed. They've just been relegated. This is the other one. The superintendent of schools wrote a letter to every parent in the district, blaming the newspaper, The Guardian, and saying we were the ones responsible for the graffiti. And then Joe kirkpatrick, who is the kilpatrick. He's the one who is the editor for this guardian, wrote a great response, and so that's where we are. And tonight, there's a school board meeting. And tonight being June 21st for whatever it is. But it's going to go on beyond that. Of course, we're just going to keep fighting this. So that's the outline, let these guys tell you more about it. Bryson Steve, you guys take it how you want and we'll let you take it from there. Yeah, so let me just add one thing because the book is called call me max. And the book, the kind of underlying premise of it is this kid has got gender confusion and one of the lines in it is that your parents guessed at your gender and they guessed wrong. And so a lot of this has to do with the parental side of it. And I want Steve to really weigh in on that because they completely ignored his concerns and Steve talked about that a little bit. You know, there was no communication between the school and me at all, not even afterwards when they sent her home with that day. We found out from my daughter who's 8 years old. And she clearly had questions, we didn't know how to answer that. It was, you know, I was blindsided. I'm sure everyone could agree that a parent should be included in these types of matters. Outside of reading writing arithmetic, we got to know ahead of time. And that's what this is about. Parental rights. So let me just make sure that I'm tracking with this. So you have a third grader who is either 9 or ten or 11 from 8 8. Okay, got.

"Crash here's footsteps. And looks up to see Steve Schneider approaching. He stands over crash with a look of panic on his face. David, gathered everything you asked. We did a headcount. There are 5 dead. Koresh feels weak and slow, and waves him over gently. It's a town, Steve. Schneider lowers himself against the opposite wall. Sorry, David, it's it's hard to sit still. Everyone wants to know what's happened. And I don't know what to tell him. You can't leave us yet. Tell me who died, Steve. Schneider hesitates, and then lists the dead. Koresh weekly nods his head. David, what are we gonna do? I don't know yet. I don't even know why they came to arrest me. Wayne says it's a sealed indictment. They don't have to tell you why they're arresting you until you're in custody. That didn't make any sense. But it doesn't matter now. Steve, we've killed federal agents. What choice did we have? Didn't you see all of them? Yeah. But this could mean only one thing. Koresh picks up his wealth on copy of the Bible, sitting open to the page he's been reading, repeatedly. He knows these words by heart, but it's still incredible to see them in this moment. Here he is, living the very story that he predicted. What is it, David? Koresh hands the Bible to Snyder. It's open to the book of revelation. Steve, we're now living through the 5th seal. I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God. It's all here. The times at hand, the final confrontation between good and evil. Yes, of course, but what happens now? I'm going home to my father. We don't know if there will be another attack. But I do know that the world is going to pay attention after today. If all of us remain strong and united, we can spread our message of Salvation. Schneider starts asking another question, but crash has already closed his eyes and exhaustion. After a moment, he hears Snyder's voice saying he'll return soon. Crash leans back his head. And he remembers his conversations with God. Their talks, going all the way back to childhood. He's done everything the lord has asked of him. He's built a righteous army. He's born righteous children. Now the world will hear his message. Pain is agonizing, though, and koresh can feel his life drifting away. But he smiles, feeling peaceful, and at ease. Because David koresh knows what has happened is all part of God's plan. From wondering, this is episode four of Waco from American scandal.

The glass front door opens and into the diner steps David thibodeau. He squints his eyes adjusting to the bright light. Thibodeau holds the door for his friend, Steve Schneider. After Snyder comes a thin man with oversized glasses and curly brown hair. He's their spiritual leader, David koresh. Koresh.

"The garage and house belong to the Branch Davidians. They're a religious sect whose teachings bro has followed without question until now. Froze eyes flick open, immediately his mind starts racing, he's running through the same terrible questions that kept him up last night. He wishes he could get up on scream, but instead he stays motionless under the covers. Bro is in his mid 20s. He is a thick mop of dark hair and a deep desire to know God, and almost for four years he's been a disciple of Vernon Howe. Bro is howl's trusted lieutenant, his entire life, his home, his friends, his Salvation, rests on the faith that Hal is the new embodiment of Christ. And that makes this morning and his doubts so terrifying. These last few years, bro has learned some deeply uncomfortable truths about how. Last week, for instance, he and Hal drove from Texas to California and Hal's Camaro. But they didn't come alone. Hal also brought the 13 year old daughter of one of his followers. They stopped for the night at a hotel, and Hal and the girl shared a bedroom. Bro plays the memory in his mind. Over and over. He feels sick to his stomach, he's given everything to Hal, in exchange, he's supposed to play a central role in the Salvation of mankind, but he thinks what if Hal isn't the messiah. What if he's just a pedophile hiding behind a Bible? The thoughts and bro right out of bed, he dresses quietly, trying not to wake the others, then steps outside. The sunlight is warm on his skin, bro is partially blind, but he can still make out the pale blooms of a jacaranda tree. Just then the front door opens. Rowe turns and sees a clean cut 20 something with blond hair and a mustache, which is best friend. Steve Schneider. Schneider gives a quick wave. Morning, Mark. You look awful, everything all right? Bro avoids his gaze. Not long ago, he convinced Schneider to follow Hal, and now he's not sure he can look his friend in the eye. Oh, I'm fine, Steve. You sure? Bro hesitates. Well, honestly, I'm kind of shaking up. It's Vernon. Schneider gives a slight nod. Enough encouragement for bro to continue. He's been acting erratic lately. We're supposed to be saving people, right? But some of what he's doing, it'll scare people away. I hear you. I've been trying to recruit this couple and he's been so rude to them. No one's going to accept a profit the way he acts. Yeah, exactly. Lately it feels like every day he does something to test my faith. Do you. Do you ever wonder Schneider raises an eyebrow? Wonder what, Mark? Bro desperately wants to share the doubts that are consuming him, but he also knows the power that Vernon Howe wields over his disciples. If he questions howl's divine authority, how finds out. Rose life will never be the same. He's not ready to cross that line. Well, yeah. Ever wonder why of all the people in the world God picked Vernon Howell to be the messiah? Snyder last two broke and feel he's broken the tension. Yeah, the lord works in mysterious ways, Mark. We should probably get back inside. I'll be right there. Bro watches his friend walk back into the house. Schneider remains one of the faithful. The state of innocence that bro wishes he could return to. When it's too late for that, he's powerless to escape the question that shook him awake this morning. Is he really serving the messiah or a monster? And if he's been serving a monster, bro knows he owes a debt to God, in which case he must do everything in his power to take how down.

"Students are going to be monitoring air quality and that's going to put their parents out of a job At the coal mine because they're going to be doing this carbon accounting and all this stuff My project gained a lot of negative press locally But once I was asked to go and present to the coal mines what my students were doing they realized that what we were doing was building good scientists And everyone benefits a coal mine and the community benefits when you have good scientists when you have kids who know how to ask questions and collect data and that really changed the tone of this very inquiry based project around local air quality but I use that anecdote to say that industry does have a big effect because the industry the local industry if it is extractive is where most of the community derives not only its income but also its sense of self This is something that I've been really challenged with as I've been teaching and resource extraction communities my entire teaching career is that when that resource extraction ends there is a void And that's challenging And parents feel that maybe they might they might portray it in a different way Maybe it's distrust of the science maybe it's challenging the teacher for teaching something that's not researched enough But at the core it's people mourning the loss of an industry and the loss of livelihoods And so trying to flip that picture that we're teaching climate change because we want to help our students develop new industries And that's why I focus so much on renewable energy in my classroom was because hey we are continually increasing in our demands for energy in our planet and we just can't possibly do that on the backs of carbon And you actually teach students how to install solar panels at the school is that right Yeah exactly So I helped work on some curriculum with a partner group called solar energy international that does training for mostly electrical contractors and big utility companies and we said hey how do we create a class a high school level class where kids can learn the basics of electricity which is cross curricular I mean it's physics It's chemistry It's engineering And how do we emphasize these important skills that students are learning in their science classes but also give them something hands on something meaningful and a job certification So students earned an entry level certificate as a solar electrical installer And we install the few arrays at our local high schools We had a total of about 50 kW that we installed and students from across the political and economic spectrum took this course and gain valuable skills and also felt like they were doing something about climate Have you encountered industry either opposition or resistance or misinformation there in the schools in the heart of coal country in Ohio Not directly I can't say that I've really felt that presence Primarily I've only taught in the inner city primarily with what's in the bipod community So my biggest challenge is really making sure that that community in particular sees themselves even within this discussion at all They're so often disconnected with from nature Don't have access to parks And even just being disconnected from nature there's always this sense of they're very keenly aware and the communities that I teach in their keenly aware of social justice they just don't see the climate emergency as a social justice issue with a lot of time So they don't see themselves squarely within it And so we bring up things like Flint Or until we bring up things like air quality and a lineup to the instances of asthma or you know until we until we bring up green jobs and why this community is not being trained for them in particular So until we really outline these factors for them so that they can see themselves as a part of this discussion especially as bob hock youth that is really a major concern that I deal with is just really inserting them into the conversation As we close can each of you state what worries and what gives you hope about climate science education and schools in the U.S. Personally again just seeing how diverse the conversation is becoming big on social media and the right spaces That conversation is increasingly more and more diverse I'm really encouraged to see that because you see so much opportunity in it I think we work with some of the brightest I was just not this bright when I was I am lord all the time I have amazingly bright these students are so really giving them more agency to control the conversation because they're controlling this conversation and a lot of spaces And the way that they control it resonates especially as we're looking at the landscape on how to bring in the voters and what the landscape is going to look like in the future I'm very much encouraged that the youth is a lot more aware than what we as their parents were That's for sure Ben When I first started my teaching career about ten years ago I felt like we were done arguing about evolution I was teaching in a rural school district in the middle of communities that do in their family lives have a pretty huge issue with evolution But we were done debating it We were done presenting it as a debate in class It was the law of biology the first law of biology I guess what gives me hope is that climate change I had a professor once Steve Schneider at Stanford And he would always say you students you active activists climate activists You guys are just so impatient This stuff takes two generations And yes it's bad Yes you should be riled up But you need to have patience because it takes two generations and we've seen this with plate tectonics We've seen this with evolution We've now seen this with climate change that it takes two generations and it feels in my perspective that we're past the arguing about the science phase And I know Ann is more in the trenches in terms of state legislatures and things like that Maybe they're not passive but it seems like kids are past it Climate change is happening and it's affecting them and we need to make concrete changes in order to address the climate emergency And that is not something we're debating So that gives me hope I guess what doesn't give me hope and what I'm scared of is that it feels like there's always going to be some battle that science teachers are going to be on the front line of And I'm hopeful that maybe for the climate emergency we've gotten past that I'm scared that this next battle may have some other unintended consequences And what worries and gives you hope what gives me hope is science teachers and administrators like Leah who back them up They are really an amazing and committed group And they are willing to put themselves on the front line and teach these topics even in places where they are reasonably expectant that there's going to be pushback on it They need our support many of them need education themselves and climate change They didn't learn enough about it in college to feel confident teaching it but we can do that And we are doing that And the public opinion has swung a long way towards the vast majority of people accepting that climate change is an important problem to deal with And for all the really difficult aspects of the last administration nobody is unaware of climate denial right now And even in very conservative communities there are voices that want their students to learn about it and to be prepared And so in spite of all the difficulties with dealing with this fragmented underfunded overworked school system I see a lot of hope for this changing in the right direction and the next ten years And read Leah dots and Ben grey's thanks for coming on climate one to talk about climate education and miseducation.

And yes, well, many trains have come and gone since then, And the story of Waco is a fascinating one is I mentioned you pick up this book. You won't put it down. Waco. A survivor story, David Tip. Ido lived it welcome to WG and radio. Why? Thank you very much. Can you hear me? All right, I hear you. Fine. Hopefully you hear us as well. My tooth. Very well. You know, I love your story about a Thibodaux, Louisiana when you were talking about working in the Louisiana had passed through there before online travel. Interesting. Yeah, it was. And you know, I found it interesting that David Karesh love the name too, and would call you tip it O, and it's one of those just great names, and so obviously you are destined for fame. But maybe not exactly the kind you got. So what I found very interesting was that your initial impressions of David Koresh were so vastly different from the media. So tell me about this. Yeah, that is pretty funny. The media tends to trade things the way that they wish to and that you have to. You have to deal with it. It it. It's shocking when your life becomes something that you know that is that is talked about And you know, it's completely different. That's why I wrote the book, actually, without a frustration for how things have been presented. But with David, you know, I mean, I was I met David and Steve Schneider and Cantar Center on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. That's one of the things that was a little different about the series that the book Actually I did meet David Stephen, Texas for brevity purposes. They Out to California connection but actually met them at the Guitar Center. And I went in. I had one device of drumsticks. And I went into the electronic drum room and they were looking at one of the kids, and they just asked me if I play it. I played it for about 30 seconds or so and He said. That was pretty good. You're looking for a band. We were kind of looking at tryouts and drummers. And and the guy that was doing all the talking, You know, he's kind of well dressed. Tonight. Steve Schneider on this guy's Madam Denison. David crashed David, you know, had a T shirt jeans just like every kind of every rocker that you mean Hollywood looks very similar to rein in. But when you're a long haired, hippie musician as well, trying to make it me, people for me, I was more impressed with Steve O's one press of the fact that I had a manager. It was a kind of a split talking guy. That's very interesting. The two of them But you know, they handed me their card. And it said. Once and stylish productions on the front. And then on the bag got all this religious scripture instantly handed the card back and I don't I'm not looking to be a Christian band. Thank you very much. And Steve basically said, Listen here. We've been all over the world with Skye. He's he talked about the seventh seal. We have an understanding of Scripture. And you know, we'll talk to rabbis pretty features, Whoever you know. I mean, we really want to know what really says. We don't really consider ourselves to be Christian or Jewish or any one particular religion. I was fascinated and the description of Steve gave of how they perceive things. Was kind of my Allie and I for me. If I were going to study Scripture would have to be a study. I wasn't interested in finding Jesus or being converted or finding God. I was not looking for a spiritual thing. But I always wanted to know what the Bible really said. You know, I knew that I had tried to read it in the past, but it didn't make any sense to me. And I went to Sunday school was a kid that didn't really make a lot of sense to me. So if there was someone that could actually explain it to me, I was a willing whore with him. I think that was the extent of it for May. It's interesting because of course, timing is everything. And you're from Bangor and went Tio Ella going to school, studying music and drums and all that, and working kind of working in a band. So timing was everything. So here's an opening. Well, I could be a musician. So I assume you're first interest in this was was about Let me make some music rather than let me find out the You know, word of knowledge is it is it were But they invited you out to Pomona. What did you think of that place? Not Pomona. But the place you went in Pomona, The rock place the Rock house. So the house was raided Brought, you know that's why they called Roger. And, Yeah, you know, it's funny for huge mentioned me for German voice of some kind of weird timing. Um, there was Ah, you know, I was When I first had met them. That day. Things were a little rough in my bed. I was I was always happy with my L. A band. But I wanted more. I will. You know, I wanted to do more. I want to go Flyer. Do whatever took the other guys in my van. They just didn't seem to be is motivated. So meeting some of the manager who really kind of was seemed to be very motivated. That was very interesting for me when I wantto Ramona House. Okay, So you've read the book recently. It's time I read the book, but I'm not sure what I said..

"Time I. Steve Schneider. Came over to my apartment in. Hollywood. He came up with a couple of Guys Greg? Summers. Jamie Cassia there? And eat other to the Dorset UK right before they showed up. I told my roommates I had some guys for Bible side forgot to tell my roommates I was going to have a Bible, study. disinterested. I. Was trying to be father were anything but when I told them to like do she'll much though Oh my God literally reaching for their Croat's. Knock in the door of. Their. I and I opened the door. There's Stephen. There's you know like I said a couple of guys. And Greg's got this At this A Brown paper bag filled with various amen we got some beers you're gonNA. Why will study you guys WanNa Steve Watson goes you guys want to hang out and that's the beers with us. Vital. And all my my roommate suddenly they put their Kopech well, yes, we can stay for thousand. And my roommate stayed there for a it was a one or two hour Bible study, and at the end you know we had a few beers each and they were. They were still there I couldn't believe it. That's Fine they didn't WanNa, do it again, but it was just. As one of those, I couldn't put that I. Wish they would have put that into the sale. I would've loved to stay that like see their faces and you know what their reaction was Outta. Love that. Things like that have happened quite a bit. Weird. Things. He is You'd never you'd never think he just never thinks. Things, like that will happen you. But that was that was a good one. But what impressed me about that meeting was Steve started talking I. I believe mostly about the kingdom to be set up. And that was on the back of their car in the back of their car. They had all this religious scripture and most that scripture was about the kingdom be set up in Israel. Zeon be specific and just about every profit talked about this events and each province has about chapter where they talk about it a few almost chapters you put it together you get a bigger picture of that event. That's what David and Steve Kerr Do. That's what the group was good at. But what really impressed me was was when Steve opened his Bible in one of those one inch margin bibles. Buck and then every page has inch margin and every page of his. Had cross-references was pencil color coded. And he would turn the page and there were every page was fill. Every page I saw was filled with notes. So and that was pretty much from genesis to revelation. In, my mind I need a lot of work into this and that's what impressed me. So there wasn't a charisma thing for me. It was a knowledge thing was the fact he put so much time and effort and understanding what the book release said. Yeah. They weren't just out there. They knew what they were talking about and they had studied it and yeah. I I had read that they even did they go to another country..

"Is alongside Mary Walter good morning to you happy Friday joining us now is Steve Schneider Steve is the owner of Atlantic guns Steve thank you for taking the time to join us well got me here how can I help you so you're in your industry in the news we're seeing a port reports from gun sellers across the country that they're reporting major spikes in fire arms and bullet purchases because people are not just going out and buying toilet paper and water they're also buying fire arms or if they already own a firearm they're buying more and more we're seeing lines outside gun stores in California Oklahoma and other places what are you seeing in this area when it comes to buying purchasing a fire arms well we pretty much saying the same thing probably started mid week last week the business probably spike shortly after the president announced that travel between Europe and the United States would since I think that I woke people up to this is a pretty serious situation and ever since then our sales have been off the charts when you talk to people Steve why do they say they're buying a gun well I think well be many people for many people it's a first time purchase maybe they've been thinking about it but I think they're concerned for their safety if things really will become dire I'm hoping that's not the case and I don't think it will be the case but certainly people often wish to exercise their second amendment rights to be able to defend themselves if they need to now you mention first time gun buyers what what percentage would you say or do you have a sense of how many of the people who are coming to your stores right now our first time gun buyers are I would certainly say right at the present time probably over half of the purchasers that are coming in and the buyers are first time buyers perhaps they have farm in the past this is that they don't have one now and a feel like they would like to have something to keep in the home I believe yet when you see these first time gun buyers come in now I do they have the knowledge usually of of a weapon have they done some kind of research beforehand that's always my because I know for me the first time you know we we purchased and and really got back into owning guns and and I went out and I I learned about it first that I felt comfortable with it I think that most of the people that are coming in have done some research and we are certainly are tuned to arm and all my people are to make sure that people have some understanding of of what a firearm is nearing we certainly give them access in terms of reference and and and directing them to get proper safety training if they decide to make the purchase yeah that could be for a friend it could be from one of the shooting ranges in the area said that's about the most we can really do what if somebody comes in and they have absolutely no idea what they're doing chances are we probably would not make that safe in saying well good for you yeah I mean it's an important tool but it's a dangerous when you gotta be responsible with it know what you're doing absolutely a lot of respect for that so Steve I we we saw story this morning and then because you sell guns in this area you might be familiar with this but in Washington DC our understanding is that there is only one federally licensed gun dealer I'm the only guy who can handle gun transfers in DC is a guy named Charles Sykes and he announced this week that he's not doing it anymore that he's right at the at least at this moment he's not doing any gun transfers is that how difficult it is to get in DC and is now on based on your knowledge impossible to get a gun right now in Washington DC secondment whites have pretty much been put aside Mr Sykes is the only licensee in the district that can do transfers and for his own reasons he has temporarily I understand decided not to do any transfers now these would be handgun transfers so at the present time DC residents cannot purchase and register a handgun as far as long as you're concerned rifles and shotguns is the opportunity to do that for individuals in DC however our understanding is that present with these it's taking upwards of a month to get a fire a long gun that's what shocked and registered it's amazing to think about it in the midst of a crisis when people are lining up at stores like yours and saying okay I want an opportunity defend myself do you see it becomes impossible it is impossible right now it is impossible it's a minimum of one month out were you surprised to see this surge across the country in the purchasing a firearms especially for first time owners I would because I was no I wasn't I think which is basically how snuck up on us we didn't think something like this would happen as quickly as it did but anytime there is a you know some sort of social unrest something like this always tends to happen whether it's toilet paper guns yes people are concerned and as likely they should be and are you able to keep up with the demand status right now now that we're not wow any nation sales were very low on ammunition as or other dealers defense style bomb firearms are virtually gone in our stores we're getting resupplied that you know how long that will last night I can't really tell amazing amazing Steve Schneider owner of Atlanta guns in both rock films over spring thank you very much great to have you on with us this morning actually thanks eleven forty three W. mail Washington's mall close one of five point nine FM I can't thank you enough W. M. where Washington comes to talk okay let's talk real estate if you're planning to sell your home again look the essential thing is getting your arms around how much that home is really worth and the way you actually do that is you get a call the experts at the Reynolds team because Cher and Debbie Reynolds with Keller Williams realty they can make sure you get.
