Waco has a checkered past when it comes to heavy handed tactics -- being the site of the Davidian debacle early in the Clinton administration when Torch Reno ordered the final solution to the Davidian problem.
One might think Waco officials would be more sensitive to heavy handed oppressive measures -- like lynching -- because of all the notoriety the Davidians brought the area. Apparently not. Lynching apparently still has its defenders in Waco.
After McLennan County Commission passed a resolution in May condemning lynching, it appears that resolution is still a hot debate.
Tuesday several county commissioners walked out of the meeting.
In protest, three commissioners walked out of court today after commissioner Lester Gibson asked them if the resolution can't be posted on the courthouse wall, then why are there unapproved items hanging on almost every floor.
