Longest Armed Standoff In U.S. History Ends… Due To Apathy
The long national nightmare that almost no one knew about is over.

The longest and possibly most bizarre stand-off in American history has come to an end.

John Joe Gray, from Trinidad, near Dallas, Texas, was arrested in 1999 for biting a police officer after the cop found he was carrying high-powered rifles without a license during a traffic stop.

Gray paid his bond and has since refused to go to court, hiding inside his 47-acre property for 16 years and vowing to shoot any officer of the law who tries to make him leave.

The bearded grandfather, his children, grandchildren and friends have armed themselves with pistols and rifles and patrolled their grounds ever since – with the county sheriff choosing not to send cops in for fear of them being killed.

But the unusual stalemate has finally come to an end after the authorities decided they just could not be bothered to wait for Gray to emerge any longer.
Here’s the funny thing; charges were dropped by prosecutors two years ago, and no one told either law enforcement or the Gray family until now.

You would have thought they would have turned back on the electric and stuff once the charges were dropped!

All's well that ends well.

If only all these situations could be handled this intelligently, that would be a good thing.

So the lesson is to keep your freedom you must threaten to use deadly force.

Bears repeating...and proof the county sheriff rules his county. He alone decides what or what not to enforce.
I am female, as was the first kitten, Raye, I helped bring into this world and had the treasure of giving her love for 7 1/2 short years. My handle here is in her honor.

From the article less than 50%:
"Henderson County Sheriff Ray Nutt was informed that the charges had been dropped last we, and responded with shrug, “Joe Gray has been in prison out there himself, in my opinion, for 14 years.”

The man has been at home with his family and friends. Wonder what the response of the wife of the sheriff will be, with him thinking being at home with her and family would feel like prison? Lol

The sheriff probably doesn't have a very happy home life himself, most likely.
