Who do you think is more in the wrong? Cliven Bundy of the BLM.
This all started over what was being called an endangered species the desert tortoises which is actually flourishing in this area. The fact is the BLM has euthanized many of them saying they had to many of them and that some of them became sick. When you over populate a them in a small area you allow the disease ones to pass on the disease to others. So in short the BLM created a problem that nature would have taken care of if they had left them alone. That is my take on it. It is the same near where I live with the Mountain Lions. They allowed an area to be populated with people that forced the Lions into a small area and they windup having problems with them coming into contact with humans so they kill the lions. When they approved the building of the homes in the area I told my wife that is going to be a problem as I was aware of all the lions and dear that were in that area. the cattle never interfered with the tortoises in any way. The fact is they found that the population was very high in that area. Now They are calling the Bundy's criminals when they are the ones that are the actually criminals. This area should have been turned back to state control when they realized that there was no problem. But Harry son want to prosecute them. When it is him and his son that have tried to pull some crap to do a deal with the Chinese to use the land for solar power and line their pockets. This was state property. I forgot to mention that the desert tortoises was removed from the endangered list the year after it was put on it and the BLM moved in 3 years later. Here is the story
A family affair: Now Harry Reid’s son says Cliven Bundy ‘should be prosecuted’
Rory Reid, the son of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, echoed his father’s comments on the battle between the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, saying the latter “should be prosecuted.”
The younger Reid, a lawyer and Democratic politician who failed to win the Nevada governorship in 2010, made the remarks during a Monday interview on an NBC political talk show aired in Las Vegas.
Reid claimed Bundy “is not a victim and he’s not a hero. He’s been using that he doesn’t own for over 20 years and he didn’t pay. He broke the law. There are hundreds of ranchers throughout Nevada that conduct their profession honorably. There’s thousands of them throughout the country and when they have a dispute with the BLM they try to work it out.”
“We believe in a country in which we are subject to laws and you can’t just ignore the laws we don’t like,” he later continued. “I think clearly if state and local prosecutors look at this more closely, they’re going to find that he broke the law and he should be prosecuted.”
Reid’s remarks buttress those made by his father the same day in Reno, when the Democratic senator told reporters the standoff between the federal government over the legal ownership of Bundy’s ranch is “not over.” (RELATED: Reid warns Nevada cattle rancher who faced down feds: ‘It’s not over’)
Despite being a political powerhouse in Nevada, the Reid family remained silent on the controversy after BLM officers unexpectedly surrounded Bundy’s ranch last week. But now that the BLM has retreated, Harry and Rory Reid appear to be staging a small-scale PR campaign against the ranchers.
