Miami's Murderous Cult Leader: Yahweh Ben Yahweh, Pt. 4

Assistant US Attorney Richard Scruggs gets a box of files from then Florida State Attorney Janet Reno's office. One of his prosecutor's calls it "Janet Reno's 'trash.'" Scruggs has heard of Yahweh Ben Yahweh and knows trying to convict the spiritual leader will be difficult and dangerous. But, it has to be done. Thirty years later, he reflects on the case, never before speaking publicly about it, except to The Florida Files. How he hated the star witness Robert Rozier, but had to place nice with him in the courtroom. Scruggs answers the question: Did the government pay witnesses to lie to convict Yahweh? Venita Mitchell recalls the night thousands of UFOs descended on Miami’s Temple Of Love before her father’s conviction to greet the self proclaimed son of God.
