Has anyone here watched WACO on netflix? If so, do you remember how the media portrayed the massacre at the time? (I was born in 92 so I have no idea) Its a pretty interesting show though, regardless of how accurate it is.

@halleberry i havent watched it yet.
i was 23 at the time and remember the media making the group out to be a violent, child-molesting cult.
even at the time, though, there were questions about why authorities didn't pick up Koresh when he went into town which he did several days a week, instead of raiding the "compound" where women and children could be at risk.

@nostradamust Thank you. That seems to be what I've heard most. The series is supposedly based off one of the survivors books. Gives a very anti government spin. Rare for Netflix.
