Other than probably banging an underaged girl. Definitely doesn't warrant the siege, though.

I always see CP and underage sex as common smears against people like this. Maybe it's true, maybe it's not. Who knows. But either way, it doesn't make sense to burn women and children alive in order to "save" them from an abusive cult leader.

There are survivors from the cult that confirm it. I'm not saying it's physically impossible that they were coerced into lying about it, but is it so hard to believe that the guy wasn't perfect? You don't have to believe that the siege/FBI overstepping was justified.

No, it's not so hard to believe. He probably was doing those things. But things like that are a red herring, meant to distract from the fact that the government burnt women and child alive trying to "rescue" them.
