Opinion from a Libertarian ViewPoint

Exposed: Corrupt Bureau of Land Management Tried to Railroad Cliven Bundy | The Daily Bell

Posted by M. C. on January 3, 2018

“even the New York Times”…hints (the best we can expect from NYT) the Bundys are being railroaded. That tells you something.

Now even the New York Times reports a shift in attitude among observers of the case:

The mistrial and allegations of government misconduct will likely energize ranchers and others in the West who have long argued against what they perceive as federal overreach. Ian Bartrum, a law professor at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, who is closely following the trial, said recent events had drastically shifted the way legal observers saw the case.

“The narrative has changed,” he said. “It went from ‘bad Bundys, clear lawbreakers’ to ‘shady government and maybe they are persecuting these guys.’”

“There’s already a lot of people that distrust the government,” he added. “Maybe more mainstream people will start to mistrust what the government is doing.”

It is beginning to look like this is yet another case of government harassment. The prosecution is supposed to turn over all evidence that might help the defense, yet they failed to do so.
