I sat on a jury for a civil suit between ranchers. Lot of shady stuff alleged with other stuff calmly discussed as if normal business despite being illegal as hell.

Not intentionally fraudulent numbers.

He just rounded them up

If the bank did not or could not verify the amount of livestock he owned and still gave him a loan then they are a bunch of morons.

Really pretty simple.  You count the number of legs and divide by four.

There are professions where people do not play when there's a disagreement.  That'd be one of the common ones.  Sometimes the shiat people will do to outsiders comes nowhere near what they'll do to their neighbors when the last straw piles on

The other ones aren't sheep, they're wives.

Without describing the personal details, can you give us some examples of the business that the ranchers do and discuss like it is normal, common practice, when it is actually illegal? I am curious what they are getting away with.

He didn't intentionally underrepresent the number of sheep he had.

Due to confusion with the forms regarding delcaring "livestock held for slaughter or breeding purposes," he just didn't count the ones he had sex with.

"Prosecutors say Duester wouldn't allow bank inspectors or the Farm Services Agency access his pastures to verify the number of livestock."

Then why the fark did they give him money?  Do a little farking due diligence before you give someone money.  FFS.

I got sheep, I got horses
I got all livestock, I got all livestock, I got all... livestock

I would assume the first thing is placing dead animals in  processing that requires the animals to be alive

Right or wrong, much of American capitalism is predicated on the assumption that people tell you the truth.  This is often not the case, and only too late is it found out, for people are considered innocent until proven guilty.  When investigations start, there's an incredible amount of foot-dragging and deception on the part of the person investigated.  Imagine if we, say, required a President-elect to submit past tax returns before they took office....

It's from the long list of libertarian ideological failures, and it's an absolute wrong.

/group human behavior is, unfortunately. for a significant proportion of the population to cheat until caught.
//regulation and verification are critical to any functional system where groups of human beings are involved.
///trust is for interpersonal relationships. societies need enforceable rules.

The government already has them. There's no need to submit anything.
The past tax returns of every President are audited already and have been since (I think) Nixon.

Did I read the article wrong? Isn't the issue that he had more sheep than he said?

I don't see the problem with that, assuming they were grazed so they didn't have higher feed costs. If they thought he was an acceptable risk with the collateral he stated, why are they mad that he had more? Doesn't that make him a better risk?

If he had additional debts that he didn't disclose, I could understand. Here, with undisclosed but presumably debt-free collateral, I don't understand the problem. Can someone explain?
 
2021-08-05 10:03:13 PM  
Never mind, I think I got it this time. He was borrowing money to purchase livestock, but presumably he was going to claim animals he already had as part of a new purchase, then just skim the extra money. Right?
