Malheur Terrorist Takeover, Day 25


BREAKING: Leader of Oregon occupation Ammon Bundy, at least 8 others arrested

Video: OregonLive

The Oregonian’s OregonLive website keeps up to date with the latest developments in the ongoing Bundy Gang terrorist occupation of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon. We are now on Day 25, and there is no sign of action from federal law enforcement.

Negotiations between terror group leader Ammon Bundy and the FBI seem to have broken down because all Bundy wants to negotiate are the terms under which the entire U.S. Government is supposed to surrender to HIM. Because nobody else understands what our Constitution says about public property, or something.

    Good outcome! Could have been a LOT worse!

    We can hope these guys get better reading material then the Bible, Book of Mormon, Doctrine and Covenants and Glenn Beck in prison. There’s a whole world out there!

    Even after a shootout, CNN insists on describing the Bundy Gang as “armed protesters,” a term never used until the takeover of the Malheur NWR.

      That’s sort of disturbing. Is the media going to side with the STATES-RIGHTS angle, and ignore the obvious land grab for profit part of the story?

      I don’t know if the Bundy’s knew about it or not, but I think the oil interests had a big part in this. Cattle ranchers were the pawns.

    I’d be willing to bet that all those guys left the refuge to get it over with. I don’t think most of them wanted death-by-cop, but I think that’s probably what a couple of them wanted.

    FBI tells Oregon refuge occupiers to leave as authorities set up roadblocks

    FBI officials told those still at the compound, about 30 miles southeast of Burns, that they were free to leave and should do so. By midnight, few people appeared to have taken up the offer and the lights were still on.

    …Blaine Cooper and Jason Patrick, two of those involved in the original occupation and who have been active in leadership, were part of the contingent still at the refuge.

    …Patrick said those at the refuge were preparing to defend themselves for a “peaceful resolution,” but wouldn’t elaborate.

      Would that be a peaceful revolution involving assault weapons?

      Go home boys. We want our country back!

    The “he said, she said”, has begun. LaVoy had his hands in the air. LaVoy was on his knees. LaVoy charged the police.

      There seem to be three versions so far: (1) His hands were in the air; (2) He brandished a weapon, and (3) He fired at the cops. [Update: WaPo says he “reached for his waistband,” which is what usually gets unarmed black teenagers killed by the cops].

      No matter what, the derp has a martyr now. I expect the FBI was trying to avoid that outcome.
