    i'm sure the government will drag out the old tried and true "he is a child molester" routine after they grab his computers and find a bag or two of dope, they probably find the pistol that shot lincon too--

    Well I saw a couple more stories and it just seems each one is totally different than the other so I'm just going to ignore it for now.
    These kinda things drive me crazy trying to figure what the real story really is, and having to sort through all the chaff!!!!!!!

    It doesn't matter that 'there's got to be more to the story'. BLM AGENTS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE ARMED. NO SIDEARM. NO LONGARM.
    I also doubt that it is a 'fake story'. Western ranchers have been being screwed by these people for decades.
    As for 'the only mention of snipers is by the wife' I would assume that EVERY LEO WITH A LONGARM IS A SNIPER or CONSIDERS THEMSELVES TO BE A SNIPER
    As for 'not paying fees required to run cattle'. The gentleman found he was paying fees NOT REQUIRED so he stopped. The desert tortoise bullshit was conjured out of thin air to get another federal agency to pile on.
    Personally, I like the 'second perimeter' idea. There's people there that have their rifles tuned to 'minute-of-whistlepig-head' and do it from a 1/3 of a mile away.
    Someone mentioned the cost of removing the 900 head of cattle. It's in the feral government's own interest to claim such a high figue, so that when the beasts are auctioned off they fetch no where near the 'cost of removal' leaving the feds free to sue the rancher for the difference, almost guaranteeing the rancher's bankruptcy.

    Sorry. If he is breaking the law and hasn't paid lease on the BLM land for OVER five years, shouldn't he be evicted. If you had a rental house and the tenant hadn't paid you in over just one year, wouldn't you evict him, even if you had to spend money for lawyer's fees and court costs and sheriff's fees to get him out. Let alone that many acres for five years. From what I read in the news the feds simply went in and moved the cattle out. Isn't this what really happened? Shouldn't the rancher be arrested for fraud for none payment. He never intended to pay. If you sold someone a firearm and that person never did intend to pay you, wouldn't have him arrested? Same difference isn't it? Oh wait it's the Government. They don't deserve the letter of the law.

    Looks to me like all those .GOV vehicles are tearing up the land for the tortoises a hell of a lot more than a bunch of cows would. Just sayin'...

    The BLM guys better watch out. They often travel alone in the back roads and they ain't near the marksmen those old country boys are. Western juries also are more kind to the locals (i.e. Randy Weaver, Claude Dallas, etc.). Might be setting up to take out the old boy as they run off the media and any potential witnesses.

    Yeah there's a LOT of hypocrisy going on there right now. Both in physical damage as well as financial costs. None of it makes sense, other than the government will go to extremes and spend a million bucks to try and collect ten dollars. I don't know for sure that the rancher is in the right, but I tend to side against the feral govt anymore.

    The rancher's family had been on the land since 1877 before the BLM was created. The BLM claims they are are rounding up the cattle and auctioning them off for the desert tortoise but just last year the BLM euthanized several hundred desert tortoises. The problem here isn't a turtle but that the Feral Government is simply a criminal enterprise just like the Sicilian Mafia - no different except bigger and better equipped.
