The upcoming Netflix docuseries, Waco: American Siege, is set to shed new light on the 1993 siege of the Branch Davidian compound in Texas. While the series will focus on the controversial death of the group’s leader, David Koresh, it also explores the aftermath of the siege and the formation of a new group of Branch Davidians.
Charles Pace is the leader of this new group, which is based in Michigan. He was one of the survivors of the Waco siege, having been inside the compound during the 51-day standoff. According to Pace, he was one of the few Branch Davidians who escaped the compound before it was engulfed in flames.
Pace, who is also known as “Amo,” took over as the leader of the group in 2003, following the death of his predecessor, Benjamin Roden. The new Branch Davidians are a small group, with only a few dozen members, and they have largely remained out of the public eye in recent years.

Despite their low profile, the group has been the subject of scrutiny from law enforcement officials and the media. Some have raised concerns that the new Branch Davidians may be involved in illegal activities, including weapons trafficking and child abuse.
However, Charles Pace has denied these allegations, stating that his group is peaceful and focused on living a life of faith. He has also spoken out against the violence that occurred during the Waco siege, calling it a tragedy that should never have happened.
The upcoming docuseries, Waco: American Siege, promises to offer a nuanced and thought-provoking perspective on the events that led to the formation of the new Branch Davidians. With expert commentary and eyewitness testimonials, it aims to shed new light on a group that remains shrouded in mystery and controversy.
