I finished watching Waco. Now I’m depressed. I knew about the story from other TV shows like Law & Order and X-Files, which existed to whitewash the FBI after Ruby Ridge and Waco. But I obviously wasn’t around when it happened, so I had no idea how bad it was.
Now isn’t a great time to watch this series unless your mental health is really hardcore strong. One doesn’t want to give in to any facile analogies but it’s hard not to.
If you were around and followed the news in 1993, what did you think about what happened at Waco? Did your opinion change over time?
