Hmmm... it's almost as if law enforcement can just get away with murder.

Wait, did I say "almost"?

So this is what you guys felt like when they executed McVeigh. Sux.

Actually I think this is what Tim McVeigh felt like when a similar series of flawed decisions on the part of a certain Attorney General and other alleged civil servants executed a bunch of Waco whackos. I mean sure they were whacko but they were American whackos, y'know? But then again Timmy's response was a bit... extreme in nature. Most of us just keep our nose clean and try to stay out of the line of fire, and we tell ourselves that's freedom. Vicki married a white separatist. I guess that's an example of not staying out of the line of fire? Death by proxy? *heavy sigh*
