Militias headed to Oregon to prevent arrest of ranchers


Statement by Oregon Farm Bureau President Barry Bushue on sentencing of Steve and Dwight Hammond:

“Today two Oregon ranchers were sentenced to five years in federal prison under terrorism statutes for setting preventative fires on their own land. We are gravely disappointed at this outcome.

“Elderly Harney County rancher Dwight Hammond and his son, Steven, a former OFB Board member and Harney County Farm Bureau president, have already served time in federal prison for their mistakes and paid their debt to society for the less-than-140 acres of BLM land that was accidentally impacted by the fires.

“This is an example of gross government overreach, and the public should be outraged.”

They were sentenced in October and now the Feds are coming to arrest them

 Here is a more slanted piece but it contains the info on the militias

  1. God help us!

  2. p. s. the public will not be enraged because most of us will hear nothing about it, or we’ll hear lies.

  3. The Hammonds are asking people not to come, not to stand in the way. They plan to voluntarily report to prison on Monday & are asking folks not to show up to keep them out of jail.

  4. Here’s an update on the Hammond crisis, some of the comments are questionable, most are realistic.
