    As per Huffington Post, a federal court jury acquitted anti-government militant leader Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy and five followers of conspiracy charges stemming from their role in the armed takeover and 41 day occupation of a U.S. wildlife center in Oregon earlier this year.

    I guess I have not followed this closely enough to understand the jury's verdict. Maybe we'll learn more in the days to come. The implications for possible future conflicts give rise to serious concerns.

    This verdict is crazy. This country gets worse every day. It just makes no sense.

    Shoulda moved the trial to Boston or NYC then these pos's would be doing the real time thy deserve! On second thought the Feds shoulda just gone in and cleaned the whole bunch out within 24 hrs.

    pr, you're absolutely right. This was a Trump ruling. An example needed to be made and a precedence set.

    Yes if Trump rules, you get an free gun with your tax returns as well forget "nature" you can shoot anything what moves including Indians, Mexicans, and Dutch people and dump your garbage on the side of the road, as well forget social security and healthcare. The "rednecks" will get free beer and "weed" as an reward for their help in the election and the F.B.I "guy" will be appointed to the Supreme Court for getting rid of Hillary and will get an personal "server" as reward.

    T.J, do you still think that this is an "normal civilized" country?????

    As I have read the prosecuting attorney overshot in trying to prove a conspiracy. He could have brought them up on lesser charges, but went for all or nothing.

    If these law breakers had been a different color they would have been found guilty. We must begin reforming America's legal systems so these systems become honest, just and fair.
