    Judge Drops Charges in Bundy Ranch Standoff Case

    Judge Drops Charges in Bundy Ranch Standoff Case

    She described the prosecutors’ conduct as “outrageous” and claimed they “violated due process rights of those charged.

    The U.S. judge overseeing the case against Cliven Bundy and others has decided to drop the charges. From AZ Central:

    Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, his two sons and a militia member will not face a retrial on charges that they led an armed rebellion against federal agents in 2014.

    A federal judge on Monday said the federal prosecutors’ conduct was “outrageous” and “violated due process rights” of the defendants.

    U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro dismissed the charges against the four men “with prejudice,” meaning they cannot face trial again. She said a new trial would not be sufficient to address the problems in the case and would provide the prosecution with an unfair advantage going forward.

    The level of prosecutorial misconduct including willfully withholding information is just staggering. How is it that these prosecutors can do such things and not face criminal charges, much less even be sanctioned or disbarred?

    Also, it will be interesting to see how some of this new information affects the issue as a whole. One of the reports that was withheld was a study that contradicted the government’s main excuse that the Bundy’s were having a negative impact on some turtle. So basically they just made it up. Also, these revelations only came about because of a whistle blower not because prosecutors had a sudden surge of ethics.

    As far as the “armed resistance” of course legally the Bundy’s were wrong. However, that doesn’t mean that the BLM or FBI was right. They had unjustified, by their own assessment, surveillance and even snipers watching the place well before this escalated (also in the documents that were withheld). This is why agencies like the BLM and other non-law enforcement agencies do not need to have armed enforcement sections.

    This appears to be a Double-Sekrit post – can’t find it on the main page, only shows up if you specifically search for it.

    It’s sad when a white racist scofflaw who leads armed militias against federal cops can receive more support on a blog, than a black cop who uses self defense against a racist white intoxicated criminal.
