You support no punishment for someone breaking the law, and that is the bottom line. If the law is wrong, let it come to light. But you don't arm up and say we'll shoot law enforcement personal.

    Now, I don't think this meets the level of civil rights either. This is just a freeloader using government land. Whether the government in that state has gone to far is another issue, and one worthy of discussion outside this event. But this is no hero of any movement. He's just a welfare rancher.
    Never said he was a hero, nor that he should be able to break any law with impunity....That is only you distorting the discussion....Dishonestly I might add.

    The real crux is the discussion you failed to even attempt to address from my post to you.

    Can't the government do anything right?
    Is that it Ditto? That's all you got is to hurl pejorative names? I'd say that is sour grapes.....

    Hurl pejorative notes? Sour Grapes? Hey, you won the debate. The BLM agents lost and the freeloader won. Another example of government incompetence.

    Are you or are you not defending him? Are your not arguing it's the government's fault and not his?

    No, I am not defending him, other than to criticize heavy handed government that has no business owning that much land in one state.

    So you give the freeloader a free pass, in order to whine about Big Gubmint.

    And what others and myself have been showing is that they were anything but heavy handed. The were slow and cautious. Being safe due to events.

    Apparently too slow and cautious if the cattle are still busy grazing on public land for free.
