TRUTH: On Nov 17, 1978, Peoples Temple founder Jim Jones had U.S. Congressman Leo Ryan and 4 others murdered. On the 18th, Jim Jones led many of his followers into mass murder-suicide at their commune in a remote part of Guyana. Many of Jones’ followers willingly took poison-laced punch while others were forced to at gunpoint. The final death toll at Jonestown that day was 909. Parents and nurses used syringes to give them a mix of cyanide, sedatives, and powdered juice on children.
