What happens if an agent provocateur...

from outside fires a couple of shots at/near the Bundy-ites?

The Feds need to be thinking about that.... some wild-card asshole wanting to stir things up.... start the revolution.

If I can think of it.. you can bet those assholes can think of it.

The Feds need to act. Soon. I'm not saying a full-on assault, but they've got to clear those people out before something unforeseen happens.

3. Not bloody likely, as the shooter would end up with a compound full of wackos shooting back

Those militia guys also fancy themselves as some kind of Rambo commandos and would send out a patrol to find the provocateur...or his body.

They didn't need evidence, they just needed to project their own suspicions onto their would-be enemy.

There's really nothing wrong with precaution, especially contemplating the obvious, but it can be a slippery slope.

I doubt anyone could get within a mile without being spotted.

You know it is going to happen, or a resident flips out.

They are stomping on the nerves of everyone in that area.

I hope it ends peacefully, but sooner or later, somebody is going to get a loose trigger finger.

back in the mid 90's.

"On June 11, FFJ released audio and video tapes of former Guardian Angel Terence Moore, who said that Guardian Angels owner Pete Morin offered to pay him to conduct a drive-by shooting of the compound. Moore said that Morin "told me if I shot up the tribal center, it was $100 per bullet. There was a $500 bonus if a bullet hit somebody_man, woman, or child, he didn't care." Moore also said that Morin put "his gun out the window, pointing it at all the kids who were coming off the hill, (saying) I'm go ing to shoot you. I'll kill all you motherfuckers." Moore also said that Moore offered him $50,000 to "shoot into Fred Dakota's car, and to make it look as though FFJ was responsible. Except Fred Dakota cannot be hit, 'cause he's the one who signs our paychecks and then we won't make the money." "
