Unobtanium: Paging wearsmanyhats. Wearsmanyhats to the green Dildonian thread.


Thanks for the page.  Added to the wiki.

Obligatory link to Friends of Malheur

It will be interesting to see how long the jury takes.  I don't think the defense was very convincing.

Let's not forget round 2.  Dildonians, the phantom menace "At the conclusion of their trial in Oregon, the Bundy brothers face assault, conspiracy and other charges stemming from a separate 2014 armed standoff with law enforcement in Nevada at the cattle ranch of their father, Cliven Bundy. "

Best part?
 
When they get out, they won't be able to get permits for any of the weapons that they brought to their freedom rallies. Which, in all honesty, I'm good with, because obviously they can't be trusted with such a responsibility.
 
And then there are the NEXT round of charges for the previous stand off to protest being charged for failure to pay their grazing rights. This is just going to KEEP hammering away at these dumbsh*ts who could have avoided all this mess, if they'd just stepped up and fulfilled their part of a contract...

And, IIRC, an extremely lightweight contract at that.

No one else saw the movie "The Birds" and said to themselves "If I take over an aviary, I can make them my willing army.  They will attack the populace and the government will be powerless to stop them.  A constitutional government will replace the failed, crooked regime and order will be restored.  And dad won't have to pay his million dollar grazing fees since that government was invalidated." 
 
The only thing that would thwart this plan is a giant seed bell.  Ordered by a plucky and possibly indestructible Mole Man.

I blame Twitter especially and all social media, but certainly Twitter. If the messaging company has chosen a bear or alligator instead of a bird as a mascot, the Dildoians would have taken over a picnic-basket-bear park or swamp instead of an aviary.

Or a python?  Then the Dildos could have tried to take over the Everglades.  That way, Florida could have saved on the python hunt and the gators would have fattened up enough for winter.

Seriously. The grazing fees they were dodging were like a 10% of private grazing fees. They were getting a great deal, and are carpet baggers in the ranching game to begin with, so the "ancestral claims" to the land are just so much narrative for their supporters.

I get wholesale goods at 10% of retail costs, I'm NOT f*cking complaining. That they damaged their neighbors' property in getting their scrofulous herd to this Magic Pasture Land, and refused to even entertain the idea of repairing their neighbor's property, while screaming about their own "rights" just stuns me. Everything about these jackanapes just makes me want to get a Gottverdammt mallet and playing Little Rabbit FooFoo on their heads...
 
2016-10-20 08:55:48 AM  
So, after all this time, are we finally Dildone with these Dildos? There can't reasonably be a person in the jury who's going to go 12 Angry Men on this and try to prove their "innocence" right?
 
I for one, hope that we can get Malheur back in good shape, and that by the anniversary of the event next year, the Branch Dildonians will all be sucking on some pretty hefty prison sentences. And what with threatening to kill federal agents during an armed takeover, I doubt any of them will get out on good behavior.

That's not how the American justice system is supposed to work.  Generally innocence is assumed a priori; it's guilt that must be proven.  ...at least in theory.

Though in this case, I don't think there are any facts in dispute so it's really just them trying to get some leniency. It's not exactly a "he said, she said" when they livestreamed their sedition on the internet.

All joking aside, we have photographs of them burning the dildos we all sent them, in big oil drums.  That can't be good for the environment, and I bet they broke some kind of EPA regulation doing so.  On top of everything else, once everything is said and done, the prosecution should walk up to them, from across the aisle, and hand them a citation for burning toxic garbage on their way to Federal Prison.

My understanding is that the dildos were mostly silicon, so . . . not so much with the burning or the melting.

phaseolus: Two weeks ago, Ammon Bundy tried telling U.S. Marshals "you're not the boss of me"

"Bundy got onto an online chat room using his defense lawyer's computer in Courtroom 9A to send a message to his wife, and the deputy told him to stop and get off the computer, according to the U.S. Marshals Service.

"Bundy was "very disrespectful'' and declared he wasn't going to follow the deputy's directions, saying: "I'm not going to do what you want,'' Deputy U.S. Marshal Troy Gangwisch told U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones in a brief status hearing Friday afternoon."

Smart lawyers on another forum tell me that behavior like this won't affect the jury verdict or sentencing, but will determine what kind of facility we'll be storing him in for a while.

While I'm sure that there was some legal reasoning behind the decision of what to prosecute these farkwits with, I am still surprised that more charges were not brought against them.  Between the trespassing, defacement and destruction of government property, environmental damage, weapons in a federal building, etc. there were so many other charges that could have been brought.  In my experience with criminal courts, the prosecution tends to charge the defendant with everything possible with the expectation that some will get plead down, or if it actually goes to trial and found guilty, the sentences will be served concurrently and not be the max possible anyway.

Did it include the afterward where the judge threw out the judgement on the grounds of "jury nullification" and general bad behavior from the juror introducing evidence?  This little fable needs the postscript as badly as the Emperor's New Clothes.
