    Tragic for whom? The terrorists?
    This gang of heavily armed thugs was allowed to take over that building, threaten to kill & die & allowed to come & go as they pleased for almost a month. They have been treated with disgusting privilege......that would not be afforded to say a group of armed Muslims or blacks for example. But because they are white & right wing.....no big deal.

    8den No I'm pretty sure that was 8ball...

    If they had stayed on the ranch doing nothing then perhaps that'd have worked. But they ripped up fences, rifled through government documents and went through protected land (there's a key word there) as well as going on jollies in federal cars.

    I'm just amazed that only one of the fuckers is dead.

    The FBI has released footage from a helicopter which it calls the ‘Complete, Unedited Video of Joint FBI and OSP Operation 01/26/2016’



    It does feature the fatal shooting of Robert LaVoy Finicum so, y'know, viewer discretion etc.

    Oh, don't pin that on me! Seriously, Tom? If it were any other group I wouldn't want law enforcement to go in blazing either. You've got locals around who might get in the way. And then, there's the fact that some of these idiots brought their kids along too. You really want to kill kids?

    I'm amazed too. This is a good example of what law enforcement could do in similar situations elsewhere (if they really wanted to). The feds know who all these guys are. I'm sure they've photographed and ID'ed every one of them. There's no reason they can't arrest them when the situation has been diffused.

    The building was in the middle of nowhere and nobody else was a t risk the milita didnt fire any shots so the police had time and space to think about how to handle them.
    If their had been hostages or the building had been in town a completely diffrent result would have occured

    I'd almost forgotten there were some holdouts still there, the FBI surrounded the place and after some calls to friendly politicians and preachers, the holdouts decided they would prefer to leave alive.


    Next time, bring a dictionary.

    the feds have learned from Waco give the idiots time and they self destruct the dead man would have lived if he hadn't repeatedly attempted to draw his weapon:facepalm:.

    Could get interesting this morning - Cliven Bundy flew in from Nevada, only to get arrested immediately, and a Nevada lawmaker who's been supporting the occupiers has agreed to be present at the surrender, which seems to have the potential to end as badly as another US lawmaker's fact-finding trip to Jonestown.

    Just the person to call to calm down a tense standoff between armed groups. One of those stupid guns is probably called "The Negotiator."

    It's hard to imagine living in such fear of your neighbours/government/aliens that you have to tool up with such a ludicrous amount of weaponry.

    The meaty looking one held by her mum is an Extar EXP-556, which is quaintly described as a “Lightweight Pistol” :hmm:

    The manufacturer's website also notes:

    two sheds not as daft as i look

    They do all need guns though. With ten of them there's a fair chance of one being psychotic so they all need to be armed in case that one opens fire on the rest.

    That ridicoulus "pistol" the grandma is packing is a cut down civvy version of an m16 they also come in ak flavour because if your rifle or shotgun has a barrel under 16 inches its a class 3 weapon which means its restricted to the sort of rules you'd have to pass to get a firearm in the uk.
    Hence fucking stupid "pistols" put a stock on it without permission go to jail.

    And the standoff ends with a whine:

    Oregon standoff is OVER after last occupiers surrender to the FBI

    If I'd have know all it took was being coaxed out with a cookie, I'd have mailed them some snacks.

    If that's an example, no wonder they think white men are doomed. I wouldn't credit him with the ability to tie his own shoes.

    Is it too late to shoot them all?:mad:

    Oregon militia members left a “trench of human feces” in Native American burial grounds: FBI

    I knew there might be damage there, but this is beyond the pale. I would call that a hate crime, but I know it won't be prosecuted that way. I hope they go to prison for a long, long time.

    That's pretty fucked up. Do we know if it's hate crime stuff though or ignorance?

    I'm tempted to wonder if there's a difference. Hate and stupidity usually go together. But, I'll answer the question as you meant it. They had been informed about the artifacts and their importance. They had also been asked not to disturb any of it. They've literally said "shit on you." So, hate crime.
