Jury Finds Ammon and Ryan Bundy Five Others Not Guilty

Wow, methinks the jury must have not liked Mr. Knight very much. He does look kind of weaselish.

(Random Far Right Kihnspiracy Website:
PORTLAND, Ore. (TheBlaze/AP) — The leaders of an armed group who seized a national wildlife refuge in rural Oregon were acquitted Thursday in the 41-day standoff that brought new attention to a long-running dispute over control of federal lands in the U.S. West.

Tumult erupted in the courtroom after the verdicts were read when an attorney for group leader Ammon Bundy demanded his client be immediately released, repeatedly yelling at the judge. U.S. marshals tackled attorney Marcus Mumford to the ground, used a stun gun on him several times and arrested him.

“Stunning,” defense lawyer Lisa Ludwig, who was standby counsel for Ryan Bundy, told The Oregonian of the jury’s surprising decision.

Its a huge loss for the feds after making such a huge deal out of it, rather than just having donuts with the protestors, smiling and handing them a rent bill.

I mean you have to think about these things.... Anyway I figured they were toast, I guess not.

1 Bundy is still in Jail:
U.S. District Judge Anna Brown said she could not release Bundy because he still faces charges in Nevada stemming from an armed standoff at his father Cliven Bundy's ranch two years ago.

2 The officers of the court seem rather annoyed with the jury. when Bundy's lawyer demanded his client be immediately released the ballifs knocked him down and tazed him. But no amount of electrical damge can get that grin off the lawyer's face.
