Randy Weaver Dead


Recommended Posts

The guy who caused the Ruby Ridge standoff died last week. 


Randy Weaver, patriarch of a family that was involved in an 11-day Idaho standoff with federal agents 30 years ago that left three people dead and helped spark the growth of anti-government extremists, has died at the age of 74.

His death was announced Thursday in a Facebook post by daughter Sara Weaver, who lives near Kalispell, Montana.

“Love you always Dad” was written on Sara Weaver’s Facebook page, posted with a picture of an older Randy and a smiling Sara, along with the dates Jan. 3, 1948, and May 11, 2022.

I think I saw where he had been sick for about a month.  His kid didn’t say what caused the death.

I have mixed feelings about this. I abhor Randy Weaver's beliefs and know that he did some instigating of violence and reasons to be invetigated. However, he wasn't the one shot dead in the stand off, the person who it was most justifiable of. It was his wife, teenage son, and I believe the family dog.
