Abstract:

On January 7, 2005, 29-year-old Ricky Rodriguez recorded his final thoughts as he prepared to embark on a violent rampage of revenge. Raised to be a prophet and a savior, Ricky was about to become an executioner, and a grim lesson in religious fanaticism. His attempt to exact justice led to two violent deaths, including his own. This ABC News report investigates the Christian sect Children of God, now known as Family International, and features San-Francisco-based reporter Don Lattin, who has been reporting on the sect since the early 1970s. The chilling video pushed him to spend two years investigating the motives behind Rodriguez's violent legacy. The result is his book Jesus Freaks.
