Federal Grand Jury Indicts Aamon Bundy and His Snack Deprived Domestic Terrorists

A federal grand jury has indicted Aamon Bundy and several other people involved in the anti-government attack at an Oregon wildlife sanctuary, where a handful of holdouts continued to occupy the site overnight Wednesday.

NBC News reports:

Federal prosecutor Geoff Barrow told the AP on Wednesday that the indictment involves the people arrested so far “and others,” perhaps a reference to the four people who have stayed put at the federal refuge — despite Ammon Bundy’s calls for them to leave.

The indictment, which was unsealed Thursday and obtained by NBC News, alleges that the defendants conspired together since last October to prevent refuge employees from doing their work at the wildlife sanctuary “by force, intimidation, and threats.”

The maximum penalty is six years in prison. The Bundy brothers — sons of infamous Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy — remain jailed. The occupiers took over the refuge as part of a larger demand that the federal government turn public lands over to local control

The indictments specifically mentioned “brandishing firearms” as part of the threats. Under 18 U.S. Code section 924, that kicks in mandatory minimum sentences that start at 7 years for handguns, 10 years for rifles and shotguns, 15 years if any were found to have armor-piercing ammo, and even more time if there were silencers, explosives, or illegal weapons present.

While the initial Grand Jury indictment does not state “terrorism” as it should, in no way precludes additional counts or charges, including a number of those arrested who were in possession of guns in violation of prior felony convictions, probation and/or release agreements, destruction and theft of both federal and Oregon power company property (the video cameras) and lots more.

Right Wing American Terrorist Militia Has Taken Over Oregon Federal Building and Land

Ammon Bundy (pictured above)  — the son of freeloading Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who was involved in a standoff with the government over grazing rights. Has gathered a group of armed right-wing militia terrorist and have taken over the headquarters of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge federal building and the land around it after armed militia and local citizens both — paraded through Burns, Oregon to protest the prosecution of two Harney County ranchers, Dwight Hammond Jr. and Steven Hammond, who are to report to prison on Monday.

Dwight Lincoln Hammond, Jr., and his son, Steven Dwight Hammond were convicted for arsons they committed on the federal lands. Jurors were told that Steven Hammond handed out “Strike Anywhere” matches with instructions that they be lit and dropped on the ground because they were going to “light up the whole country on fire.”    The fire consumed 139 acres of public land and destroyed all evidence of the game violations.  After committing the arson, Steven Hammond called the BLM office in Burns, Oregon and claimed the fire was started on Hammond property to burn off invasive species and had inadvertently burned onto public lands.

In phone interviews from inside the occupied building Saturday night, Ammon Bundy and his brother, Ryan Bundy, said they are not looking to hurt anyone. But they would not rule out violence if police tried to remove them, they said.

“The facility has been the tool to do all the tyranny that has been placed upon the Hammonds,” Ammon Bundy said.

“We’re planning on staying here for years, absolutely,” he added. “This is not a decision we’ve made at the last minute.”

The terrorist are demanding that the Hammonds be released and the federal government relinquish control of the Malheur National Forest.

He said many would be willing to fight — and die, if necessary — to defend what they see as constitutionally protected rights for states, counties and individuals to manage local lands.

Ammon Bundy posted a video on his Facebook page calling on patriots from across the country to report to the refuge – with their weapons.
