For those concerned that the government is somehow forcing the Hammonds to sell to them by "first right of refusal", all that means is that IF they ever decide to sell at whatever price THEY choose (the Hammonds), BLM/govt gets the opportunity to be first in line to purchase at that price. That is all.
There may be some stipulations that give BLM the chance to match or beat any accepted offer (if someone offers higher for example), but that is about it. In no way are they forced to sell to the govt. Also, the govt still has to pay whatever asking price the Hammonds want in order to purchase.
your forgetting double jeopardy by trying to jail the hammonds again over a crime they already did their time over.....
The over reach by the BLM...
The function of the law is not to provide justice or to preserve freedom. The function of the law is to keep those who hold power, in power.

I'm a bit late to this game but these law breaking, criminal thugs need to be taken out by any means necessary. Deadly force is advised.
No it's ill advised, no shots fired as yet everybody is still breathing, right now they are just an annoyance with guns.
You know if they were of Middle Eastern descent...
And people wonder why the cost of meat has gone up?
"The drought was so severe for so long, and the feed prices were so high, that you just couldn't do that forever," says David Anderson, a livestock economist with the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. "We do have producers who were forced to sell off all their herds. A lot of those beef cows did go to slaughter."
