In 1993, a fringe religious group with an apocalyptic belief system and a charismatic leader who abused children and called himself the Son of God put the town of Waco, Texas on the map for horrific reasons.

US government agencies knew the group was stockpiling illegal weapons at an alarming rate. Their efforts to serve warrants at the group’s compound resulted in numerous deaths, scores of injuries, a  51-day standoff, and a final, fiery end that would amount to one of the deadliest events in the history of United States law enforcement.
