Branch Davidians Land in Waco in the Path of the Trans Texas Corridor

19 May 2007 at 1:11:30 AM

Hard to make a comeback when the State of Texas Is on a Greed Kick.

With that in mind, it isn't too surprising that when the Texas Department of Transportation announced plans to build a super highway that might run right through Mount Carmel, the Branch Davidians saw conspiracy written all over it.

"It'll go right through our buildings, where we live, right through this place I am standing – going to be a swath right through on this corner that runs right through our wellness center, our museum and even our cemetery," Pace said. "It is going to miss that neighbor's house over here and that neighbor's house over there. I think that is pretty strategic."

This isn't just Branch Davidian paranoia. The Metropolitan Planning Organization in Waco confirmed that the 77 acres that make up Mount Carmel are included in a study for the road — although the Branch Davidians are hardly alone. The highway, known as the Trans-Texas Corridor, could gobble up more than a half-million acres of private property. Texas would obtain the land through eminent domain, which allows the government to seize land for public good. Still, the news of the highway plays into the Branch Davidians' worst fears.
