What I am talking about are the real terrorists who have plotted and acted against the American people, destroying public property and putting everyone at risk - the Bundy nutjobs:
Seven people involved in the armed occupation of a central Ore. wildlife refuge were arrested after a traffic stop during which shots were fired. Another unnamed individual was killed during the confrontation, the FBI and Oregon State Police announced Tuesday.Another one of these fools was arrested in Arizona after he turned tail and abandoned his fellow "patriots."
Authorities said that shots were exchanged during a traffic stop along Highway 395 around 4:25 p.m. local time. Police were carrying out a federal probable cause arrest for a number of people involved in the armed standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, which has been occupied since Jan. 2.
The Oregon State Police said Tuesday night that an incident team has been dispatched to investigate the officer-involved shooting. No law enforcement personnel were injured in the confrontation about 15 miles north of Burns, Ore.
Five people were arrested at that time, including occupation leaders Ammon and Ryan Bundy. One person was killed during the exchange of gunfire; police said information about that person will not be released until they can be identified by the medical examiner’s office. Another of the arrested individuals was injured and taken to a local hospital, but has since been arrested and taken into custody.
A sixth person involved in the occupation, Joseph Donald O’Shaughnessy of Cottonwood, Ariz., was arrested about an hour and a half after the initial confrontation. Shortly after that, a seventh person — broadcaster Peter Santilli of Cincinnati, Ohio, who is known for live streaming refuge events — was arrested in Burns.
All of people arrested face federal felony charges for impeding federal officers.
It is worth noting that these "patriots" think that just because they have a couple of guns, they would be able to fend off the "tyrannical" government. They were apprehended by FBI agents and police officers. What did they think they would do against a highly trained tactical squad much less military personnel?
It is also worth noting that none of the local right wingers that beat their jingoistic drums have said a word about these terrorists. Nothing from Scott Walker, Bob Gannon, Ron Johnson (who is the chair of the national security committee). I guess the Bundy clan didn't meet their terrorist color charts because they weren't people of color.
I'm just thankful that these subhuman assholes are behind bars and that no good guys were hurt or killed in the process.
