Finally some justice. I'm glad at least some of these degenerate criminals are getting some punishment for their armed takeover of a Wildlife Refuge. Two were convicted of conspiracy and two more for destruction of government property. They tried to claim that they were just protesting, but an armed takeover is not a protest, it's an act of revolution. I'm still disappointed that their leaders weren't convicted as well, but at least this is progress.

Is this a joke? How much money was wasted 'persecuting' these _attention getters_?


Stung by their defeat in the Bundy trial, prosecutors hired an outside consultant to help with jury selection for the latest trial. Barrow and Knight emphasized to jurors that a conspiracy doesn’t require a formal or written agreement hashed out in secrecy.


How much more is gonna be spent 'taking care of them' while they're in jail?

Some *win*.


ETA:

Fish and Wildlife officials said the occupation cost the federal government $4.3 million, including restoration and other expenses.

Over reactionary, Civil disobedience is a form of protest, not revolution. Go taze a grandpa for spitting on the sidewalk.

Actually I agree with CB this time. Of course because they are "right wing" he is vehemently against them. Would you advocate the same for the pipeline protesters then? Remember they left several garbage trucks full of trash behind, including a few dogs. I'm guessing you'll find some sort of "difference" to make THOSE protesters justified in their social justice zeal.

My 'tone' is generally consistent: You want attention? Here's some grazing machine gun fire to help you clear up your decision making skills.

The government prosecuted the whole lot of this group. Why don't they prosecute all the BLMers and the Muslims. I fully believe in equality under the color of law. Don't you?

Haw-Haw

right, but these men did not actually commit a single act of violence now, did they?? Nearly every BLM protest with over 50 people ends up with some white person being dragged and beaten, especially in an urban environment.

Lynching is ok when dark people do it to light people.

Mwahaha, the occupation of the wildlife refuge was a technical success then. Very few people were convicted of anything, although one hero lost his life during a roadside execution. When can we start occupying the IRS ??? Or can we burn it down and get a free pass if we scream "BLM!!!!" and beat up some of our fellow white people?? It should work right?

You know what wouldn't have caused any money to be wasted on the occupation?

If there hadn't been any occupation.

The Bundy Ranch was 'occupied' for a while. The government killed quite a few cattle too IIRC. I could have cared less if they got even by occupying some Fish and Wildlife building. Shoot, for 4.3 million dollars they could've built a whole new building and laid in a new road to boot.

And I could care less that these asshats tried to "get even" and lost. Them's the breaks. Don't do # that requires a government response and then try to whine about the government responding. And lets not try to pretend the Oregon standoff happened because of the ranch standoff. It was because something else happened that they didn't like and they decided to do their "no step on snek....plz send snax" routine.

The whole lot of 'em are a bunch of chuckle-heads. I don't care what they do to each other ... as long as my tax dollars aren't being 'blown' to perpetuate it.

Neither group has the balls to pull the trigger on the other. Neither group is worthy of respect. But ... I have hope.

How is it justice when 2 are convicted while the rest get off ?

If you wanted justice then everybody would have been given the same verdict



prosecutors hired an outside consultant to help with jury selection for the latest trial


What exactly does this mean ? They rigged the jury ?

And yet...you'll complain about the response and not the catalyst.

Whatevs man.

Everyone of them should have been charged with terrorism and sent to Gitmo for "enhanced interrogation". It's funny how these right wingers cry for the law to be followed until some nut from their party starts acting up.

Um, no.

What started as a local protest over the imprisonment of the Hammonds (for arson) was usurped by the Bundites to promote their own agenda.
