Re: GOOD!! Jury refuses to convict in Bundy ranch standoff
That scenario is pretty much why we have jury nullification.
 Quoting: Zedakah


The federales won't stop harassing these guys. Remember what happened to Patty Hearst.

After being acquitted for her role in a bank robbery, the feds waited years for their revenge. Then they (DEA) sent an anonymous package of heroin to her house, marked with phone numbers for postal workers to call if they had questions.

Patty immediately called the Sheriff's department when the package was dropped off on her porch - the deputies arrived and so did the Feds, but because she called the cops immediately there was nothing they could do to her with this attempted setup.

Bundy Ranch standoff trial ends with zero guilty verdicts

A federal jury in Las Vegas did not return any guilty verdicts Tuesday against four men accused of taking up arms against federal agents during the Bundy Ranch standoff in 2014.

Jurors dealt government prosecutors a stinging defeat in the case when, after four days of deliberations, they returned not-guilty verdicts on the most serious charges and deadlocked on a handful of others.

Richard Lovelien of Oklahoma and Steven Stewart of Idaho were acquitted on all counts and walked out of court Tuesday night free after spending more than a year in prison.

"Both Ricky and I were teary-eyed," Las Vegas defense lawyer Shawn Perez said of the verdict, "I was shaking ... I have gotten not-guilty verdicts before, but this was really special to me."

Two other defendants, Eric Parker and O. Scott Drexler, both of Idaho, were acquitted on the most serious charges of conspiracy and extortion, but jurors failed to reach unanimous verdicts on weapons and assault charges.

Both men could be allowed to go free after a detention hearing scheduled Wednesday morning. The court ordered both defendants to be released to a halfway house until Wednesday's hearing.

"(Parker) is getting released as we speak," Las Vegas defense lawyer Jess Marchese said Tuesday night. "He's ecstatic."

After the jury's decision, U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro called for the hearing without any motions from the defense, Marchese said. "We didn't bring it up," he said.

Federal prosecutors had little to say about the verdicts.

“While we are disappointed with the verdicts, we thank the jurors for their service," Trisha Young, spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's Office in Las Vegas, said in a statement Tuesday. "At this time, the government has not announced its decision regarding the retrial of Eric Parker and O. Scott Drexler.”


Government loses 2nd case


This marks the second time a jury failed to convict the defendants on charges related to the standoff, which pitted armed ranchers and militia members against Bureau of Land Management agents in a dusty wash below Interstate 15 about 70 miles north of Las Vegas.

Social media exploded with posts on Twitter and Facebook from Bundy supporters, many of whom have maintained a sidewalk rally since the first trial of these defendants opened in February.

Jurors in the second trial notified Navarro on Tuesday they had reached an impasse on several counts. The defendants were called into court at 2 p.m. when the verdicts were announced.


The men were being retried on conspiracy, extortion, assault and obstruction charges for helping Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy fend off a government roundup of his cattle in what became known as the Battle of Bunkerville.

A jury in April deadlocked on charges against the four men. It convicted two other defendants on multiple counts. But it could not agree on conspiracy charges — a key component of the government's case — against any of the six.

The government launched its second prosecution last month. The case climaxed Aug. 11 when Navarro abruptly ended court by ordering Parker off the stand and striking his testimony from the record as jurors watched.

The defendant was attempting to tell jurors what he saw during the standoff over a barrage of objections from prosecutors. Navarro ruled Parker violated court orders by discussing prohibited topics. Parker returned to the defense table and started crying while Navarro dismissed the jurors.

Marchese said jurors told him Tuesday the incident was a factor in their verdicts.

"That weighed heavily in their decision," Marchese said. "They wanted to hear him speak. It was very bothersome to them. They felt like they weren't getting the whole story."

Marchese said jurors were sympathetic to the defendants and their inability to mount a cogent defense in light of restrictions that prevented them from talking about why they participated in the standoff and what they were thinking while they were there.

"It wasn't one thing," Marchese said about what led to their verdicts. "They (jurors) said it didn't make sense."

The case went to the jury Tuesday after lawyers for all four defendants waived closing arguments as part of a protest about court proceedings and restrictive legal rulings.

"The jurors knew our hands were tied," Perez said. "By the time the government laid it all out for them, they had already made up their minds ... They knew there was no reason for us to go farther."

Perez said the government's string of witnesses, largely composed of local, state and federal law-enforcement officers, became both repetitive and contradictory, according to jurors.

"They were bored to death," Perez said.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75309066


The judge is probably an illegal. Does not want the spotlight. And if she's got two brains cells, she'll cut them all loose and distance herself from this whole Bundy thing
before she gets the attention of President Trump. He'll have her on a flight out of the US, disbarred and banned for life
from the USA.

Re: GOOD!! Jury refuses to convict in Bundy ranch standoff
The Bundy land grab where they have paid for grazing rights
since the late 1800's, was orchestrated by Harry Reid and his son Rory Reid.

They were paid millions by the Chinese to hand that land over
to the control of China.

With water.

Harry Reid has been hiding in the ranks of the Mormon church for decades while he has cut deals with foreigners to hand US resources off and put money in his pocket.

He and his wife are lower than snakes
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75423624


That's just it, no one I have ever talked to in the church understands how he's not been excommunicated for all is lies and general corruption.

Reid is a big sore spot with nearly everyone I've talked to.
