Governments to enhance rural transportation in the Lead neotiator with separatists Looking back we were really lucky FORT DAVIS AP As he worked toward a peaceful compromise with Texas separatist Richard McLaren Texas Rangers Capt Barry Caver tried not to think about April 19 1993 That morning Caver was stationed along a state highway outside Waco watching the Branch Davidian compound He and fellow Rangers were waiting to arrest David Koresh and his followers when they walked out of their home and ended their 51 day standoff They never came At exactly noon fire swept through the sprawling wooden structure Hours later Caver stood guard on the night shift beside the charred remains of 80 people That grisly day has been on Cavers mind since April 27 when he was called out of church in Midland and sent to this remote part of West Texas Early that day several McLaren followers had stormed the house of neighbors Joe and Rowe to protest the arrests of two Republic of Texas members Caver became the lead negotiator and his first concern was getting the out safely He got it done early the next morning by going against the conventional approach and swapping one of the arrested Republic members for the hostages Over the next six days Caver maintained a firm but patient stance The Rangers were the lead agency at the scene but they were by no means alone Scores of state troopers joined practically every officer from every agency in every nearby county at the site The National Guard created a virtual hospital The Border Patrol brought in heatseeking and night vision equipment The FBI also made its presence felt So did the ghosts of Waco It did enter my mind but just Caver said this week back amid the comforts of his Midland office I had to dispel those thoughts and try to combat the situation I tried not to let it get in the way of my TEXAS OKLAHOMA SHOW TOUR June 1821 Highlights TEXAS the outdoor drama at Palo Duro Canyon Oklahoma Rogers musical Will Rogers
