Furthermore, you claim that people with big bucks are to blame? Seems Bundy is on that bandwagon because he has already set up donation sites on FB and PayPal. Pfft....this guy is a scamming pos who deserves what he got.
Where did you get this info? Do you have a link or is this just more BS that is being propagated by people that have no idea what they are talking about?
The Bundy family gave the land to the State of Nevada. With conditions of grazing rights.

This time....people decided to give more in a personal nature than a few bucks on paypall...
They got in their damn trucks/cars, drove out to Bundy's ranch and gave him physical support and protection.
Plus, a few bucks donated, under $3,000...sure as hell isn't going to cover the cost of the damage they did to his cattle, and property.
You really need to take off your blinders, they are causing your eyes to not see the whole picture.
a tract of public land granted by the U.S. government to a settler under provisions of the 1862 Homestead Act (or its amendments or other homestead legislation) to be developed as a farm. (Note: Certain later homestead legislation, or amendments to homestead legislation modified the intention for the tract to always only become a “farm.”)
In an exclusive interview with Benswann.com, Montana cattle rancher Todd Devlin says the BLM is now considering new ways of dealing with the Cliven Bundy situation. Devlin, is not just Montana cattle rancher but is also a County Commissioner in Prairie County Montana and he has worked with the Department of Interior, having taught workshops for the agency in the past. Monday, Devlin reached out to his contacts in the Department of the Interior to find out why the Bureau of Land Management has refused to work with Bundy rather than simply attempting to run over him.
Among the questions Devlin asked of the BLM, “Is it possible that this guy (Cliven Bundy) has prescriptive rights?” The response from top officials at the BLM, “We are worried that he might and he might use that defense.”
So what exactly are prescriptive rights? Prescriptive right to property is an easement that gives some one the right to use land owned by someone else for a particular purpose. An example is using a path through Party A’s land to get to your land, a prescriptive easement is allowed which gives the user the right to get to his land through A’s property.
In most states, if a trespass or use of land occurs regularly for at least 5 years without the “owner” of the land taking legal action, prescriptive rights come into play. Because Bundy stopped paying his grazing fees to the BLM in 1993 but continued to use the land for over 20 years, it is possible he now has prescriptive rights to the land. That might explain why the BLM has not taken this issue to court and never bothered to file a lien against the cattle

Now, why don't you chase down the court records that show BLM negated Bundy' s prescriptive rights...

More of this bum and the fools who are his supporters.
Maybe I'm a little biased against free grazers, but I work MY property to tend to my herd (horses not cows) and free grazers just let loose their animals on public lands so they don't have the costs that I have. They pay a fee (tax) to use the lands that is for the masses.
So now here's this bum using up the public's land for 20 years and not paying a fee (the tax) to use the land because he doesn't want to. Fine. Get your animals on your land and welcome to the real world, but he just keeps on using up the land w/o a worry.
How is this guy a hero? Because he is a tax cheat white guy?
As far as the BLM, thanks to Conrad Burns (Rep-MT) it is now a tool for the Corporations to great land from the people to exploit for the profit of the Corporations.
