Look at recent events. Police beating up a 12 yo girl, people being tasered to death, soldiers raping and killing their own.

Yes you are correct.
Not questioning authority when that authority is wrong or evil or issuing orders you know are wrong makes the person who carries out those orders just as guilty.

Oh, did the Davidians in Waco actually attack anyone? I don't recall them attacking, yet the DEA (I believe) burned down their residence.
on February 28, 1993 when the United States Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms (ATF) attempted to execute a search warrant at the Branch Davidian ranch at Mount Carmel. An exchange of gunfire resulted in the deaths of four agents and six Davidians.
In May 1992, Chief Deputy Daniel Weyenberg of the McLennan County Sheriff's Department called the ATF notifying that his office had been contacted by the local United Parcel Service regarding a driver seeing a package that had broken open on delivery to the Branch Davidian residence, revealing that it contained firearms, inert grenade casings, and black powder.
Subsequent investigations, including sending in one agent undercover, revealed that there were over 150 weapons and 8,000 rounds of ammunition in the compound. Most of the weapons were legal semi-automatics; however, the ATF alleged there were also a number of firearms that had been illegally modified to fire full-automatic
