First Bundy trial - Not guilty on all counts.

A jury delivered an extraordinary blow to the government Thursday in a long-running battle over the use of public lands when it acquitted all seven defendants involved in the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in rural southeastern Oregon.

Tumult erupted in the courtroom after the verdicts were read when an attorney for group leader Ammon Bundy demanded his client be immediately released, repeatedly yelling at the judge. U.S. marshals tackled attorney Marcus Mumford to the ground, used a stun gun on him several times and arrested him.

The tazing of the lawyer was bizarre - one of the other Bundy attorneys discussed it here:

Liberals are deeply grieved.

NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

NOT GOOD ENOUGH!

All the players involved in the assassination of Lavoy Finicum should be on trial.

U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown told him that there was a U.S. Marshal's hold on him from a pending federal indictment in Nevada.

"No, he's released on these charges. He's acquitted. Nevada doesn't have jurisdiction,'' Mumford yelled, standing before the judge. "If there's a detainer, show me.''

"Mr. Mumford, you really need to never yell at me now or never again,'' the judge responded.

Brown told Mumford that she's releasing Bundy on all federal holds in the Oregon case, but he'll have to take up any questions about the federal holds from the Nevada case with the U.S. Marshals Service.

"If they want him, they know where to find him,'' Mumford told the judge. "I don't see any paper proving their authority to hold him.''

Suddenly, a group of about six to seven U.S. Marshals, who had been either standing or seated around the perimeter of the courtroom, slowly moved in and surrounded Mumford at his defense table. The judge directed them to move back but moments later, the marshals grabbed onto him.

"What are you doing?'' Mumford yelled, as he struggled and was taken down to the floor.

As deputy marshals yelled, "Stop resisting,'' the judge demanded, "Everybody out of the courtroom now!''

Mumford was taken into custody by the Federal Protective Services

A bit of overreaction by the government jackboots in the courthouse, but still, the thought of a lawyer getting tased warms the cockles of my heart.

I've heard a couple of reports that include the outrage of some career g-woman who is appalled by the verdict . . After all . . she shudders to think that other anarchists, deplorables and militias will be emboldened by the verdicts.

The verdicts were announced yesterday afternoon and I've heard it reported quite a few times since. Not until I opened AMG did I learn of the lawyer's tazerin'. Two days and a few news services have had the gumments back by not reporting it.and overlooking the possibility that tazerin' lawyers probably won't sit well with said groups.

It is quite apparent to me

It is quite apparent to me that there is a world of difference between the juries of western states and the mind-numbed eastern counterpart.

I'd doubt that you could get a jury in Maine to overturn the federal state edict of any prosecutor here.

Of course the typical call for " stop resisting" still rings out from federal magistrate.

The word is " lawless", we are no longer a nation of laws, but a nation of men, the men have control, the laws are only applied to the peasants. The magistrates are above the law.

FBI Agent Indicted In

FBI Agent Indicted In Shooting Death of Rancher Lavoy Finicum

An FBI agent has been indicted and accused of lying about firing shots at slain Oregon militia member LaVoy Finicum during a fatal roadside encounter, according to report.

Oregon state troopers noted multiple rifle casings where the FBI agents had been standing during the Jan. 26, 2016, shooting. During a later probe, the Deschutes County Sheriff's Office determined one agent fired two shots at Finicum’s pickup truck after it crashed into a snowbank. The team of federal agents then covered up the shooting by removing the casings, the sheriff alleged.
