This shirt pays homage to the Waco siege, also known as the Waco massacre. Law enforcement took siege of the compound that belonged to the religious sect called the Branch Davidians. It was carried out by the U.S. federal government, Texas state law enforcement, & the U.S. military, between February 28 & April 19, 1993. The Branch Davidians were led by David Koresh & were headquartered at Mount Carmel Center ranch in the community of Axtell, Texas, 13 miles northeast of Waco. Suspecting the group of stockpiling illegal weapons, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, & Firearms (ATF) obtained a search warrant for the compound & arrest warrants for Koresh, as well as a select few of the group's members.

The incident began when the ATF attempted to serve a search & arrest warrant on the ranch. An intense gunfight erupted, resulting in the deaths of four government agents & six Branch Davidians. Upon the ATF's entering of the property & failure to execute the search warrant, a siege lasting 51 days was initiated by the FBI. Eventually, the FBI launched an assault & initiated a tear gas attack in an attempt to force the Branch Davidians out of the ranch. Shortly thereafter, the Mount Carmel Center became engulfed in flames. The fire resulted in the deaths of 76 Branch Davidians, including 25 children, two pregnant women, and David Koresh.

Your government only has their interest in mind and will protect themselves no matter what.

Look within.
