PORTLAND (INTELLIHUB) — Seven brave individuals who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge last winter in protest of the Bureau of Land Management’s treatment of the Hammond Family were acquitted of conspiracy charges Thursday as supporters cheered outside the courthouse.

Ammon Bundy, Shawna Cox, David Lee Fry, Jeff Wayne Banta, Neil Wampler and Kenneth Medenbach were found not guilty on all counts, however the court could not reach a verdict on Ryan Bundy regarding a theft charge.

The group’s leader Ammon Bundy will remain in custody to later stand trial for another high-profile standoff which took place at the Bundy Ranch in Nevada where members of militia and the BLM pointed loaded rifles at each other.

Ammon’s attorney Marcus Mumford was tased in the courtroom then detained, following a small protest where he demanded that his client be set free, but U.S. District Court Judge Anna Brown said Ammon needed to be held by federal marshals until the Nevada trial.

Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D), who ordered the FBI to act swiftly during the occupation, was not happy with the verdict, nor were other corrupt local officials, like Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward who violated the U.S. Constitution during the occupation.

Shockingly, this case is a major victory for ranchers and Americans in general who surprisingly may still have rights.
