A federal jury has found Ammon Bundy and his six co-defendants not guilty on all charges for taking over a federal wildlife refuge in eastern Oregon earlier this year.Wow!
Standoff leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five others were charged with conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. Several also were charged with possessing a firearm in a federal facility.
All seven defendants were found not guilty Thursday on all charges. The jury had no verdict for Ryan Bundy's theft of government property charge
I am shocked. This is gonna fuel the militia movement in ways unimaginable. Between this ruling and the tension with the current election I might have to rethink the possibility of violence.
I thought we might see a few sporadic acts of stupidity but now all bets are off.
I wonder about one other thing. I forgot the guys name, but a man was killed by law enforcement that participated in this. Does his family have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit now?
This is big news but I don't know the implications....but I sense it can't be good.
