The lessons learned from 81 days standoff

June 18, 1996

The FBI is celebrating its victory in Jordan, Montana where after an 81 days standoff members of the anti government freeman group surrendered to the authorities. There were several law breaking activities by the freeman group, that ranged from fake money orders, tax fraud, to political terrorist activities against people that would disagree with them like kidnapping a local judge. Ken Tool explains about what he has learned from following this movement for years and the terrorism of the far right. Also the reaction of the locals to this standoff were discussed.
