I would like to address the rather humorous paid advertisement in the Sunday paper (April 25) titled “Killing Machine.”
At first you think is this some sort of sick joke? You wonder how any sane person could actually make David Koresh out to be an innocent, God-fearing man. Pardon me, but why would he have reason to fear God? After all, the man thought he was Jesus Christ.
John Ellis then goes on to refer to our government and law enforcement officers as a “killing machine.” If anyone is a “killing machine,” shouldn’t it be David Koresh? It was he who had 51 days to let innocent children and babies go free; but instead allowed them to die beside him.
John Ellis, how can you say that the Davidians were a “helpless group of believers?” They had armed weapons. They had a madman for their leader. They were not helpless.
What an act
After watching attorney Dick DeGuerin’s performance on “Prime Time” I feel he should receive an Emmy when the awards are given out. He gave a great performance in his bashing of the ATF and FBI.
I especially liked the part where he cried as he told of the great living quarters for the women and children, his grand tour of the compound and what a charming and upstanding young man Vernon Howell was.
I believe if he could have spent 15 more hours with old Vern, he would have become a Branch Davidian himself.
