The 1992 siege of Randy Weaver and his family at Ruby Ridge was a law enforcement debacle that led to a coverup with the top ranks of the FBI; the coverup became public in July 1995 and is still under Justice Department investigation. The series debunked official government accounts of the siege, from the claims of Federal marshals about who fired the first shot to the questionable rationale of the FBI sniper who killed Vicki Weaver. (Sept. 3, 4, 5, 1995)
