Oregon standoff: All defendants found not guilty

Oregon standoff: All defendants found not guilty

Deliberations started anew Thursday morning after the federal judge in the conspiracy trial against Ammon Bundy and six co-defendants welcomed a new juror and told the reconstructed 12-member jury to "disregard entirely'' past discussions and begin fresh.

"Starting over may seem frustrating,'' U.S. District Judge Anna J. Brown told the jurors in court. "Do not let it discourage you.''

Brown directed the jurors not to speculate or discuss the reasons why they'd been reconfigured, with Juror 11 replaced by Juror 18. The judge dismissed Juror 11 on Wednesday, a day after a fellow juror questioned his impartiality in a note to the court, submitted on the third day of deliberations.

"That's happened. That's passed,'' Brown said.

She urged the group to start all over, "as if the previous deliberations have never occurred.''

5. Yes, the update at the top mentions the verdict. Also, no such headline restriction outside LBN.

2. The can of worms has been opened

Oh boy, this will give the wingers and militia mother fuckers a big old court victory allowing them to do whatever they please. God help us on election day.

9. on the up-side, there's no new martyrs for the RWNJs now

i do think "conspiracy to impede" turned out to be prosecutorial overreach when criminal trespass, vandalism, and littering charges would have been a lot easier to prove

6. WELL THIS SUCKS ...

As someone said above ... this decision is going to unleash unholy hell ... the gun-humpers and militia folks are going to take this as a sign they are free to do as they wish as long as they claim 'patriotism' or 'Teh Constitooshun' as their motivation.

Screw this, man ... this is bad f'ing news.

7. Guilty Verdicts had to be unanimous so one juror could have done this
