    On Tuesday, W. Joseph Astarita, 41 years old, will stand trial in U.S. District Court in Portland, Ore., on charges of making false statements and obstruction of justice related to the 2016 fatal shooting of Robert LaVoy Finicum.

    Mr. Finicum had served as a spokesman for Ammon Bundy, the leader of an armed occupation in 2016 of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon. Mr. Finicum was shot and killed after attempting to evade police and federal agents trying to arrest him and others for occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

    I'm not 100% informed about the case, but I don't think it was a full pardon.

    Back burning is what it’s called, but if the gov already has a beef with you then they call it arson.

    They can set fires on public lands? Interesting,

    I want to go to St. John’s. Should I seize some land and burn it down there?

    Despite the ban, without permission or notification to BLM, Steven Hammond started several “back fires” in an attempt save the ranch’s winter feed. The fires burned onto public land and were seen by BLM firefighters camped nearby. The firefighters took steps to ensure their safety and reported the arsons.

    At the time the feds wanted his land.

    Cushman argues that federal officials pursued the stiffer sentences for the Hammonds "because they want to force them to sell. The whole thing is about the refuge, and the BLM and the Fish and Wildlife Service have been after this ranch for years," said the activist, who has known the Hammond family for decades.

    "It's taken them 20 years to figure out how to get the Hammonds. But they're doing it now," he added.

    Ammon Bundy arrested after missing trial on trespass charge (apnews.com)
    Anti-government activist Ammon Bundy was arrested Monday after failing to attend his trial on charges that he trespassed during an Idaho legislative session last fall. Bundy didn’t appear in the courtroom because he was protesting outside the building instead, apparently angry in part over mask requirements put in place during the coronavirus pandemic.

    Its getting hostile here re this and our nightly riots. Lowest covid numbers but yet we are still shut down. Kids are still doing online school unless they have a special education IEP and our Gov still mandates masks everywhere.
