Abstract:

Outside Waco, Texas, on April 19th, 1993, a 51-day standoff between the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and David Koresh and the Branch Davidians concluded with a fire that killed more than 75 people inside the Davidian compound. Despite the fact that the FBI negotiators talked on the telephone with Koresh or his spokesperson almost every day, the negotiators were unable to bring the standoff to a peaceful end. A frustrating yet persistent aspect of the FBI negotiations was the Davidiansí talk about the Bible and their religious beliefs. In this study, I analyze several exchanges between Koresh and various negotiators. The analysis shows how different reframing practices reveal the interactional troubles the negotiators faced in dealing with the incompatibility of their frame for the situation with the Davidiansí religious one. These practices, I argue, shed new light on the generic advice currently provided for crisis negotiators.
