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.

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.

Um, didn't the feds try and steal their land in a giant land grab?
The Hammonds were re-sentenced because the law which they were convicted of violating requires a minimum sentence, which the initial judge ignored. The Bundites usurped the local protests for their own agenda.
The re-sentencing of the Hammonds that precipitated the occupation was intended to cause the Hammond family to lose their ranch.
It seems a uranium mine is planned for the area, once all of the land owners have been relieved of their property.

And now the event at the Hammonds Ranch / BLM land just happens to be right next to “DIAMOND” Craters Volcanic field in Oregon.
All three above mentioned locations are known for minerals like GOLD + DIAMONDS + URANIUM.
Check out this government report from 1956 detailing Uranium and other natural resources in the Oregon locations.
which does show significant uranium deposits on or very near the Hammonds' land:
Why? Is the geology the same? Because, you know, mineral deposits are all about the geology. I've been in Eastern Oregon (on hang gliding safaris). The geology is quite varied.
This would naturally lead one to conclude that similar deposits are present on the Hammonds' land,
Their name is Hammond. The apostrophe goes before the s.
the deposits referenced in the Oregon Dept. Of Geology's report are on or extremely close to the Hammonds' land.
Only one Hammond living there at the moment.
The Hammonds live at the Hammonds' ranch.
I am somewhat familiar with the topography of the region (studied topo maps looking for hang gliding sites). The back of the Steens is very different from the Steens and lands south. Geology is what matters in mineralogy, not proximity.
Even if you are correct that none of the map tags are referring to the Harney Basin(and I'm not convinced that you are), wouldn't you still agree that those tags are a good deal closer than '75 miles from the Hammonds' range?'
