Ryan Bundy to OPB: We’ll Leave if The People of Harney County Want Us Gone


The armed militants occupying a federal building in Harney County, Ore. will leave peacefully if the people of the county want them gone, a leader of the group tells Oregon Public Broadcasting.

Ryan Bundy, a Nevada cattle rancher leading the seditionists with his brother Ammon, says the group will hold a community meeting with Harney County residents, according to OPB's John Sepulvado.

"This is their county – we can't be here and force this on them," Bundy tells Sepulvado.

This was published at about 6PM Pacific. If they stick to this (I have zero doubt the locals will ask them to leave at that meeting), then it looks like this has a good chance of ending without bloodshed and destruction. I'd like to see arrests, but the main thing is that no one die for this foolishness.
