Agent alleges misconduct in Bundy Ranch trial

Federal agent alleges U.S. misconduct, cover-up in Bundy Ranch trial


Quote:
A federal investigator is alleging prosecutors in the Bundy Ranch standoff trial covered up misconduct by law enforcement agents who engaged in "likely policy, ethical and legal violations."

In an 18-page memo to the Assistant U.S. Attorney General, Special Agent Larry Wooten said he "routinely observed ... a widespread pattern of bad judgment, lack of discipline, incredible bias, unprofessionalism and misconduct" among agents involved in the 2014 armed standoff.

He said his investigation indicated federal agents engaged in excessive force, civil rights and policy violations.

Prosecutors with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Nevada on Friday turned over Wooten's letter to lawyers for Cliven, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, who along with Ryan Payne, are currently being tried on conspiracy, extortion and weapons charges.

The letter and its explosive allegations came days after U.S. District Judge Gloria M. Navarro suspended the trial over concerns that prosecutors withheld potentially mitigating and exculpatory evidence from the defense, a violation of court procedures that could lead the judge to declare a mistrial.

Navarro closed the courtroom to the public last week and barred lawyers from talking about the case while she examines defense motions to dismiss the charges made prior to the discovery of Wooten's letter.

The truth will probably not be allowed to come public. Perhaps with this administration it can be.

Consider...we hear so much about the "attacks" on government property but where is the outrage on attacks on private Property? All this originated with just that...private property rights. If you legally control a water source/spring should you be able to use it to water your livestock? If you legally own property should you be able to try to protect it by setting a backfire against an incoming fire? Lots of What if "you" owned..but consider things from IF you were the people being attacked.

Our culture cherishes, worships the rugged individual, the self-reliant champion of righteous personal sovereignty over (for example) the reflexive, overbearing, bureaucracy of a callous, over-powerful punitive State.

That's not what's going on here.
Bundy beef has to compete against other cattle rancher's produce.
The cattle ranchers that obey the law, pay tax on the range their herds graze etc., have to reflect that $overhead in the price of their product.

Either Bundy is such a bad businessman, or untalented rancher, or combination of both, that he can't compete without cheating, or has been bitten by the greed bug.

Bundy is no Robin Hood, robbing from the rich to give to the poor.
He's stealing from us all, to keep for himself.

I think they should throw the book at this guy.

No...you have no idea how other beef producers support what the Bundy bunch was trying to do in Nevada. They were not there but for all the other producers that face obstructions to their operations, by the over zealous parts of agencies etc.
