Just How Low Will the Government Go to Convict the Bundys of Conspiracy? Revenge in Play?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Lorie Kramer

“The word conspiracy comes from the root word conspire. It is defined by Webster as “to join in a secret agreement.” Whether a conspiracy is intended to do good or to do evil is actually irrelevant.  You can commit a conspiracy to do either good or to do evil, but there has to be an element of secrecy involved. The government is trying to claim that the men who occupied the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge were trying to do evil. It wouldn’t be prosecuting someone for trying to do good would it?”

With jury selection having begun today, and trial starting next week; many have questions about the potential of a fair trial for the Bundys and those charged in Portland.  Less Gov is the Best has posted an article by Scott Rohter entitled “Mock Trial in a Kangaroo Court… or Just How Low will the Government Go to Convict the Bundys of Conspiracy? Jury Selection Begins” 

“Why weren’t the charges against Pete Santilli dropped seven months ago? Why did the government wait until the last possible minute to dismiss the conspiracy charges against Mr. Santilli? The reason is obvious. The government wanted to punish the internet journalist for his positive news coverage of the occupation of the Refuge and from the point of view of the defendants and their supporters by locking him up in jail for seven and a half months prior to the trial. That is not justice.. That is revenge.”

Rohter makes another excellent point, “The truth about this trial is that everything is actually in dispute. The facts are in dispute. The charges are in dispute, and the Federal government’s policy of owning and controlling half of the land in twelve western States is in dispute. It has been in dispute ever since the Federal Land Policy Management Act of 1976 which changed the way that Congress manages America’s public lands. It is all in dispute, and it is critical to understand this fact because it is one of the reasons that the Bundy’s came to Oregon in the first place where 53% of the land is controlled by the Bureau of Land Management and the United States Forest Service. It is why they decided to “takeover” a deserted Federal Wildlife Refuge in the middle of winter when no one was there. The Bundy’s were also motivated to come here after two Oregon ranchers who had already served time in jail for burning weeds on their land were re-sentenced to spend five more years at a Federal Penitentiary under an anti-terrorist act signed by Bill Clinton.”
