I hope though this doesn't end up Obamas WACO

Did the militia bring kids with them?

I said they have notions of protecting freedom, and they do they see themselves as the spark against government oppression it seems to me they are trying to draw parallels with abuse American citizens experience by police in the urban environments. Now I do not believe they are right because I do not think a stupid judge and some fires are reason for a resistance, however with the way things are going I could potentially one day see myself agreeing with a resistance if it was for he right reasons.

I did my share of protesting the war in southeast Asia. The closest I got to doing anything illegal in the process was following a bunch of people into the admin building at Stanford. And left as quick as I could because those people were really loony.

Well, and I guess the question is for many where is the line? When is an armed resistance appriopriate how bad does it have to be? Do you have to already be on the death train before you resist, I suppose it's a fair question.

Has anyone looked into the judge who originally sentenced them? As in, any connections? Judicial favoritism exists. Also, any indication of bribery or blackmail? Wouldn't shock me any if there was.

Considering everything I've read, they got too light a sentence & definitely need to serve the full length like anyone else would. Let the poaching firebugs rot for a few years.

There was never any evidence of poaching, with the exception of the testimony of a mentally ill nephew, estranged from the family at the time of that charge.

As for the fire bug have you read the testimonies of the principals involved? Take a look, what you will find is that the reason they set the fire to begin with was to make a fire-line to protect their property from a pre existing fire that was set up by the BLM, folks.

Moot.
They were convicted, rightfully or not.

It is not in fact Moot as the poaching case had nothing to do with a charge of terrorism, nor arson.

There were two incidents of fires. The fire that purportedly covered up poaching was explained as a fire to kill off invasive plant species. It was still an arson. The backfire endangered firefighters camped nearby.

I was talking about the arson charge (your second paragraph) which is what they were convicted on. Since they were convicted your argument is moot.

There was no charge of terrorism.
