I live in rural Nevada where the Bundy's are revered as folk heroes.
It's interested that so many people who hate the BLM are also anti-BLM. The other one.

The Bundy smiles went from ear to....well, they were pretty big smiles.

So, was this incompetence or intentional sandbagging on the Feds part?

I was shocked by the acquittal over the Oregon refuge occupation, but I could accept that maybe there was some bizarre technicality that they got off on and it just wasn't worth the trouble to keep pushing it.  Now I'm convinced I'm taking crazy pills.

HDF. Arsch.

Yet as much as anyone can hate those clowns (successfully managing to piss vast swathes of the country off), the boxes full of rubber dicks and resultant captured .gif rage were quite the silver lining

Did the local Feds assign their most incompetent prosecutors to these cases on purpose? Because I'm really getting that feeling.

So there is whistle blower evidence that the BLM showed prejudice and abused these folks. Then the government withheld evidence FBI snipers were around the ranch before the call to the malitia even though the report on these guys was listed as non violent. I think they had a pretty good case demonstrating tyrannical government gone mad. So did the judge. Ironic tag to busy getting its face smashed into the gravel by a jack boot!

If it's any consolation, I'm sure the Branch Dildonian Facebook group refers to them as "persecutors".

Oh whatever at this point.  The rule of law is meaningless apparently.

This is what happes when independent civil servants stop being independent and become very political. They let political feelings cloud their judgment. I don't care one wit for these folks but (when all the evidence you need to convict them of criminal wrongdoing was on national TV night after night yet a judge had to toss the case for misconduct) its clear that people who should have just acted professional and did the job we all pay them to do just couldn't because they were too blinded by their politics.

They didn't require a basic education level to be on the jury.  This is another reason why we need to dump the jury system and go to a judicial panal like they have in Japan.

First paragraph says it all:

A federal judge Monday threw out criminal charges against Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a co-defendant in the 2014 Bunkerville standoff, citing "flagrant misconduct" by prosecutors and the FBI in not disclosing evidence to the defense before and during trial.

Dumb Ass FBI and Dumb Ass prosecutors .

This had nothing to do with a jury... the presiding judge threw it out with prejudice due to gross misconduct of the prosecution.   A judicial panel probably would have thrown this out even sooner.

You really need to stop doing that.

You may tell yourself that you are in control, that you can stop any time and it doesn't impact anyone but yourself... but we are here to plead.  Your crazy pill problem is affecting *all* of us.

Don't like these things happening?  Petition to have the idiot prosecuters fired and exiled from the US.  They screwed up a case that was theirs to win.  Fire all incompetents.  Then fill the ranks with competent people.

Problem solved!

ftfa:  "flagrant misconduct" by prosecutors and the FBI in not disclosing evidence to the defense before and during trial.
... The judge found prosecutors engaged in a "deliberate attempt to mislead" and made several misrepresentations to both the defense and the court about evidence..."

I've never even played a lawyer on tv but isn't that like "court stuff 101"?

How the fark could you mess this one up? I mean for Christ's sake they farking cover it in god damn MATLOCK.

Of course what am I worried about, it's not like this is going to embolden those assholes into pulling off more highly illegal stunts where nobody at all is going to get hurt.

I too live in rural NV and where I work I get to deal with their cult following regularly. It is a shame that they have no understanding how the BLM actually works. The constant chatter about the state taking over public lands is always a fun one; when you show them evidence of how its worked out in other states like Texas you get "Well it would be different here" NO IT WOULDNT!  The state wouldnt be able to afford to manage the lands and would then sell them off to the highest bidder, now how much is that grazing permit going to cost? Where are you going to fill that elk tag? They drive me nuts...

Wait- what?!


Trial by your peers is an outdated model that is increasingly irrelevant in our modern world.  In the old days, everyone knew everyone else, and the jury was composed of people who were neither your friend or enemy, but knew your reputation and the reputation of your accusers.  Legal systems have become increasingly complex, evidence increasingly scientific, and yet we put your fate in the hands of people too stupid to get out of jury duty.  A Judicial panel is basically a panel of judges that hear your case, and vote among themselves.  It is exactly the system we use in appeals courts and in the Supreme Court.  Thing is, if the first local panel of judges screws you over, you can still appeal to the guys over their head, and so on.
 
2018-01-08 04:59:50 PM  
Well, good to know that it's okay to completely ignore federal laws, and to take over federal land by force of arms.

Looking forward to some white supremacist group taking over Mount Rushmore and enslaving people to chisel Richard Spencer's face over Lincoln's. Or maybe the Lakota seizing and destroying some pipelines because freedom.  Because it's been shown that if you don't get your way in court, just load up the guns and take what you want, there will be no consequences.
