I think it's safe to say that the acquittals of the prime movers behind this occupation is not universally welcomed. I confess I struggle to understand it, myself. As much comment on twitter has it, what message does this send to other people contemplating armed resistance in the event the election doesn't go their way? Never mind the apparent disparity in the kid-glove treatment of this bunch of obviously heavily-armed people who just happen to be white, and the many cases of people of colour being shot even though they did not obviously present an armed threat.
I've never underestimated the American Governments talents for vindictiveness Krepostnoi - I'll wait, because I expect the Internal Revenue people to come knocking on the Bundy's front door after this debacle.
I hope that their books are in order.
