The order was to confiscate the cattle for resale in order to compensate the govt for the unpaid grazing fees.
The order was NOT to slaughter the cattle, damage personal property and terrorize all individuals (with firearms, tazers and attack dogs) that felt the govt was overreaching.
What bothers me is not the fact that this man's livestock were to be confiscated and resold. He didn't pay his grazing fees and therefore must live with the consequences.
What bothers me is the brutal methods, blatant disregard for the proper execution of the court order and the destruction of personal property.
This is not how law enforcement are to carry out an order of the court and it is an insult not only to the Bundy family (who although were at fault should not have been subject to consequences not ordered by a court of law) but also to the Judge himself.
If the order had said that the cattle was to be destroyed and his land was to be decimated (although that last part would never happen) then I would not have any problem with any of this.
Despite a clear and violent overreach by the BLM, Nevada Senator Harry Reid has responded to the incident by calling Bundy and his supporters “domestic terrorists.”
I'm still very confused on what we're calling his land vs. what the State of Nevada and Feds recognize as public/private land boundaries. Those don't change just because he says they do...and the courts have, thus far, found no validity in his claims otherwise. I suppose everything changes, if that ever does.
IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the United States’ Motion to Enforce Injunction (Doc.#50) is hereby GRANTED.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Bundy is permanently enjoined from trespassing on the former Bunkerville Allotment.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the United States is entitled to protect the former Bunkerville Allotment against this trespass, and all future trespasses by Bundy.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that Bundy shall remove his livestock from the former Bunkerville Allotment within 45 days of the date hereof, and that the United States is entitled to seize and remove to impound any of Bundy’s cattle that remain in trespass after 45 days of the date hereof.
IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the United States is entitled to seize and remove to impound any of Bundy’s cattle for any future trespasses, provided the United States has complied with the notice provisions under the governing regulations of the United States Department of the Interior

Trespassing cattle in mass graves today, trespassing herds of humans tomorrow?
Yes and they testify against themselves that they are the children of those that killed off the buffalo and drove the plains tribes into the reservations and government rations.
Thats funny... Bundy himself is one of those same "children" and Bundy's supporters really could care less about the Native Americans.
Below is a Bundy supporters response to Kali74 saying the militia should go help the Native Americans with their rights too where concerns the KXL..

I dont own a gun, go ahead.
ETA: Even if I did, I would not condone the things you suggest.
Its all aboult rights in the Bundy case. Maybe the Indians have
rights, maybe they dont. I have not looked into that.
Apparently they don't condone supporting the native american or their rights... only Bundy's.

Are we still on the topic of BLM agents out of the Nevada field office, following a lawful and binding court order to remove this guys cattle from our public lands....or are we turning this case into a catalyst to simply boost anti-government sentiment?
