Hello. What do you know about Branch Davidians? What would you feel (if
anything) if you were to discover you were very wrong about saying they
committed suicide? Well, you are wrong. They did not commit suicide. They
were also found innocent of murder. (In case you want to know facts). As
you write so casually about a very tragic event, true justice falls in
the streets. You deserve the same justice you give others. I make this
statement thinking of how you mentioned the bombing in Oklahoma. Another
very tragic event, that Branch Davidians have NOTHING to do with,
however, all the dribble drabble of the tv and so-forth has you relating
them. You take what you are fed huh? You are not a self motivated
investigator for facts. You are a sheep. You sit back as so many people
do, in judgment of events and people that you were in no way a part of,
nor knew personally. You so coldly and arrogantly speak as if you
actually know something. You are a fool. The world is the way it is
because of people like you.
You are the same as the racist...the molestor....the murderer...the
rapist. You are no less full of hatred..only you justify your thoughts as
right, and others are wrong. As long as there are people like you (and
there will be! the majority are) the world will only get worse not
better. And thank goodness....there IS a God...(which I doubt you even
believe in...) otherwise I would have to say there is no hope whatsoever.
And no....I'm not a Christian. You do not have to be Christian to beleive
As a man thinks....is how a man is.
You let others think for you.
I knew a young girl who was raped by a gang of boys. Before she had the
chance to speak to authorities, the boys had told everyone that she had
willingly given herself to them. They were brutal. They laughed about
what they had done, bragged about it to freinds. Being that this was a
small community, word travelled fast. The mothers on the ladies committee
voted that the girl not go with their daughters to disneyland, as she was
a 'slut'. The entire community 'KNEW' that the girl had flirted and given
herself to this gang of boys, some of them much older, three weeks before
the girl had the courage to tell anyone in her own family. Meanwhile her
reputation was slaughtered by these heartless arrogant people. Eventually
charges were filed. The boys were given a slap on the wrist. They would
smile at the girl and her family when they would see them in public. hey
were proud of what they had done. They got away with it. I wonder if they
raped anyone else. Not only was the girl victimized by the group of young
men, but in a manner, even moreso by the community. I watched all of
this. I know the girl still....her life was destroyed. But hey, the women
on the ladies commitee were just doing what was right, huh? This girl was
a slut right? They had HEARD what she had done....right? And besides, she
probably seduced these young men. Afterall, she was 12 years old! The
justice system failed her. The mother attempted to try them as adults
because of the severity of the rape. The same district attorney who ten
years later wanted to try two 12 year olds as adults for starting a fire
in an upscale private club, denied the mother this, stating that the boys
would be harmed if they went into an adult prison. Apparantly he thought
a fire where no one was harmed was a more justified reason to try two 12
year olds as adults. But no...not 6 boys (2 of which were 16) who
brutally raped a 12 year old virgin. Yep....I knew the family. I knew the
girl....she was my sister.
I learned several things. The foremost thing I learned....was NOT to
judge situations without strong evidence. I was shocked at the people in
the community...who acted so heartlessly towards a scared little girl.
They never heard my sister's voice, they never cared to hear her side of
the story. They already tried her, judged her and scentenced her. But
they heard the gossip generated by those boys...assassinating my sister.
There is a very strong similarity between what happened to the Branch
Davidians and what happened to my sister. You can try to argue that
David Koresh was this and that...but it is still not fact. Only
gossip...only what you heard. And who are you...or I to judge him? A dead
man who cannot even defend himself? What you THINK he did does not
justify the deaths of the people. Does not justify who is really to
You see, you are no better than those people. The people who judged my
sister were no better than the boys who raped her.
