Led by the soon to be incarcerated Ammon Bundy and other assorted nutcases who have inserted themselves into the Hammond affair in Burns Oregon.

Head cheerleader is none other than Pete Santilli, a real piece of work. The Burns Brigade will be mobilized, muster at Dennys, early dark thirty.

Jon: sorry but your link took my MSN browser into orbit.

Here's an ABC News link on the subject.

I think the Bundy-nuts will find all the publicity they seek this time around-------and I can hope that the Feds don't back down.

shaking head.

They are in the middle of nowhere. Put a fence around them. let them out in 5 to 10 years. Don['t need to feed them, cloth them, or give them medical care. Cheaper then prison.

Damn, John. That's actually a fantastic idea! I'd love to see that, rather than how I think it might play out. Just gonna have to to sit back and watch what happens to those ignorant hicks.... I hope it's not too ugly.

Good stuff. These anti-american terrorists deserve everything coming their way.

Edit: Jon sets the over/under at 2 days. Seems reasonable.

first it was affluenza..

Now its milituenza..


over under 2 days? I'll take the over. These guys are true believers. They have a fireplace for warmth. This could last some time. After Waco the cops aren't going to want to go in their too fast.'

edit: ooh.. they have a tower.. they have the high ground. woot!

From the web..

http://cherylhill.net/firelookouts/2012/05/23/sodhouse-tower/


As with the P Ranch tower at the other end of the refuge, this tower is closed and the bottom set of stairs has been removed. It sits on a bluff with a pretty nice view. Right below is the headquarters for the wildlife refuge and beyond is Malheur Lake.

At one end of the spectrum is Burning Man...

They have a fireplace for warmth...and no trees to fuel it with. A lake for water...that's frozen.

No "fence them in and leave them", this is a widely used bird watching refuge. Why screw over the citizens?

No, you start a perimeter about 3 miles out and work inward. Cut utilities off, get drones up recording from every angle. APCs roll in with the "sound cannons" and water cannons, put rounds through all their truck tires and generators, teargas through the windows, then hose their asses down when they come out while death metal plays at 130dB. Over and done inside of a day. Then some long prison sentences, 20-life.

Meanwhile, be a good time to go snatch up Bundy senior down in Nevada with all his lunatic crew up there in Burns.

So I gather the original conviction was arson for burning their own properties in 2001 and 2006? They both did time of 1 month for the dad and 1 year for the son. They were both released. Now... for some reason a judge has ordered them back to prison?

Not enough details but it sure sounds sketchy... Anyone have the details?

They were tried and convicted and sentenced. The Feds argued for a mandatory 5 year term, judge thought that was too severe and sentenced them to a shorter term. Feds successfully appealed on the grounds that Federal sentencing was mandatory minimum 5 years. So back to jail they go.

The right wing nut jobs are trying to make this all about land rights but it is really about mandatory minimum sentencing. When it was black people getting screwed these same right wingers called it law and order, tough on crime, blah blah blah

I like John M's original idea. A self-supporting prison has great virtue. In addition, if we keep them out of the headlines, they may starve for lack of what they really crave -- a platform for their fantasies.
