"FOR protecting them, by a mock Trial, from Punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:" - From the U.S. Declaration of Independence HISTORY IS REPEATING ITSELF. [url]seattlep-i.nwsource.com/local/27500_ruby14ww.shtml[/url] Prosecutor declines to prosecute FBI sniper in Ruby Ridge case Thursday, June 14, 2001 THE ASSOCIATED PRESS SPOKANE -- The FBI sniper who shot the wife of white separatist Randy Weaver at Ruby Ridge will not be tried in an Idaho courtroom for involuntary manslaughter, Boundary County, Idaho, Prosecutor Brett Benton said Thursday. Last week, a sharply divided 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that FBI sniper Lon Horiuchi could face trial for the death of Vicki Weaver in the 1992 standoff. Benton issued his decision in a brief press release from his Bonners Ferry, Idaho, office. He gave no reason for his decision. The involuntary manslaughter charge had been filed by Benton's predecessor, Denise Woodbury. She lost to Benton in last year's election. Special Prosecutor Stephen Yagman, a Los Angeles attorney appointed by Woodbury to handle the case, said he did not take part in the decision to drop the charge. "Were there to be a different prosecutor in Boundary County, the charge, or more severe charges such as second-degree murder, could be refiled," Yagman said in the news release.

I am relieved! This guy is a government employee and was only doing his job of protecting us! Vicki Weaver was a dangerous person and he probably felt threatened.

Not surprising. God forbid she may have thrown her pre-ban assault baby at an officer of the peace. What a bunch of BS.

So let me get this straight.....This guy kills one innocent in cold blood and gets off free. McVeigh kills 168 innocents and dies because of it. Yet we all support McVeigh dying and are pissed off that this guy goes free. So I ask what is the difference?? Is the number of people that are killed that matters or what?? sgtar15

Difference is one guy killed with the authority and blessing of our government. Who needs terrorists when our own government can kill us even better. If I didn't have so much to live for I would show Lon how it feels to be on the other side of the scope.

No one can post Lon's address? With all the resources all of our users have here, no one can find his "file" and post pertinent info? Payback is a bitch.

And that is my point!! We should be very afraid that this guy got off, because now every one of us can be a target and no one will be held accountable. sgtar15

In the article I read in my local paper, the prosecuter said something to the effect of," we hope this will all be put behind us and begin the healing process." As can be evidenced on this thread, it's working. Let the healing begin.

The healing will begin as soon as Lons address and pertinent info is released to the patriot community. A few weeks later, the healing should begin.
