The Weavers have disappeared down an Orwellian memory hole for most Americans. You see, their story doesnít offer an occasion for waving flags and
singing patriotic songs. In fact, despite the tragedy that befell the Weaver family, Randy Weaver is still vilified by major media and so-called
liberals for his "crimes and strange beliefs." Those crimes and strange beliefs include distrust of your government.
Randy Weaver had reason to distrust his government. In 1991, an agent of the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATF) entrapped Weaver by
hiring him to cut off the barrels of two shotguns illegally. Once Weaver was arrested, BATF tried to force him to inform on the Aryan Nation group,
with which he was affiliated, but he refused. Weaver also refused to appear in court for the minor firearms charge. For the next 18 months, the U.S.
Marshals Service spied on the Weaversí isolated mountain cabin, where Randy lived with his wife Vicki, son Sammy (14), daughters Sara (16), Rachel
(10), and Elisheba (10 months), and a young friend named Kevin Harris.
Then came August 21, 1992. On that morning, six trained government marksmen wearing ski masks and camouflage and armed with automatic weapons equipped
with silencers, crept up on the Weaver cabin without warning or warrant and without identifying themselves. First they shot and killed the familyís
yellow Labrador, Striker, who had been barking at the intruders. When young Sammy witnessed this, he fired a .223 mini-14 in the direction from which
the shots had come, then ran back toward the cabin. Agents shot Sammy in the arm, knocking him down. The youngster got back to his feet and began
running again. Moments later, a second gunshot caught Sammy in the back, killing him.
