Despite one dead man , a movement slandered and destroyed and the ongoing federal land grab, nothing has changed.

I watched and listened to this standoff every single day as constant as I could while it unfolded, including the car chase as reported.
These agents need to be tried for murder...
I wish Trump would get involved with this and start punishing these 3 letter agency renegades when they come off their chains.

Well I am aware the government is abusive but at the same time I do not want to support an opportunist.
That's already not true. For starters, the BLM agent in charge of this -- and many other questionable BLM actions and activities -- lost his job in shame and disgrace and is no longer calling the shots at the BLM.
Further, the Bundy case is setting legal precedent... and therefore case law. This case can (and no doubt will) be used by others fighting the abuses of the BLM. So the repercussions have only just begun.
And I'm sure Mrs. Finicum's lawyers are finding very very good use for this information and these precedents...
You already said that.
A scape goat is fired, no policies of the BLM are changed though. Thats the real issue.
They protested to bring attention to the BLM policies, because there was no other recourse. The courts are the gubment, the same gubment the BLM is part of. No brainer, dude.
Mmm hmm, if they can afford the legal fees to sue the gubment who will just throw it out, too.
Besides we're talking about the same gubment that not only burns landowners out of their homes, crops and livestock he3re, but burns down whole nations abroad too...
And yet, that same gubment court was forced to declare a mistrial after years of lying and other misconduct and pulling every damn dirty underhanded trick they could think of was brought to light... and very likely all charges will be dropped. They sure didn't want this. No brainer, Dude.

Most corrupt admin in history.
Obama weaponized the govt agencies against his own citizens.
People are still kissing his ass.
You just scapegoated the politicians for what is behind the BLM land grabs? The couporations that want to privatize huge tracks of Federal Land for gas, oil and mineral resources.
A scapegoat is an animal who takes on the sins of others, or is unfairly blamed for problems
Particularly right now (mostly) is the desire to frack every square mile of wilderness thats left, and for that the Big Oil corporations need all the water available.
Guess what the Bundy thing was really all about, water rights.
The Corporations are the gubment!
Now I know you are playing.
