Ambush at Ruby Ridge

Ambush at Ruby Ridge

This remarkable book is the case of Randy Weaver, a white separatist (not supremacist) living with his family on Ruby Ridge in remote northern Idaho. According to Bock (the writer), after a government stooge baited Weaver into an illegal gun sale, U.S. marshals and the FBI laid siege to his home and shot his 14-year-old son and his wife to death. A marshal died, too, but at trial, the jury acquitted Weaver and family friend David Harris of murder. Meanwhile, defense attorneys had exposed a swamp of arrogant government misconduct. This is a thorough, accurate accounting of the tragic events at Ruby Ridge and how our government acts when at its most extreme.
