Jury acquits leaders of Oregon standoff of federal charges

The leaders of an armed group who seized a national wildlife refuge in rural Oregon were acquitted Thursday in the 41-day standoff that brought new attention to a long-running dispute over control of federal lands in the U.S. West.

A jury found brothers Ammon and Ryan Bundy not guilty of possessing a firearm in a federal facility and conspiring to impede federal workers from their jobs at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, 300 miles southeast of Portland where the trial took place. Five co-defendants also were tried one or both of the charges.

3. Was the jury of their peers also idiot teabag 2nd Amendment pukes?

That would be who their peers are. Or ranchers who also want an illegal free ride for themselves.

9. Oh, I didn't know that. The bumdys seem to exemplify the type.

Their supporters do too.

Teabaggers seem they can be anyplace, especially rural/isolated/homogeneous areas.

4. Were there any charges they were found guilty of, or is it now legal for anyone to take over any

government refuge as long as they have guns

WTF is wrong with Oregon?

I would bet money on it, if they were African American they would have probably shot them, and if there was a trial, they would have put them in prison for 30 years
