Militants In Oregon Say They'll Leave If Local Community Asks

Last edited Tue Jan 5, 2016, 12:08 AM - Edit history (1)

Source: NPR

Anti-federalist militants continue to hold the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Ore., as law enforcement officials keep their distance. But they say they're willing to leave if local residents ask them to, Oregon Public Broadcasting reports.

Read more: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/01/04/461950205/gunmen-hold-federal-building-in-oregon-as-convicted-ranchers-seek-pardon



It sounds like they're looking for a graceful way out of this.

Edited to add: I'm starting to wonder about this story. No one else seems to be reporting this, and CNN just showed a video of the local sheriff asking them to leave. So they have their request from the locals and apparently aren't leaving.

1. My guess is they've found out how they're being mocked.

Guys like these have very fragile egos and I'm sure they never expected to be ridiculed so mercilessly.

Plus, they are locked in there without socks, beer, and cheetos. Naturally, they are looking for a way out.

I would hope that they'll be arrested. I suppose it's possible that they got some kind of deal for a slap on the wrist or immunity in exchange for them leaving.

my mind is going many different directions, but I do have warm socks and snacks! Those bozos in OR are something else. I wonder if they are hoping to just walk away from this? I hope they don't get to.

35. I"m wondering if they have embarrassed themselves so badly with this fool move

That this will be the end of their efforts to keep this People vs BLM and Government alive.

I think this ballooned out of control and they just got scared and now are embarrassed too.

I hope anyway. I'd still love to see them get a little jail time out of this. Teach them a lesson. But I bet it won't happen.

Reality has set in and there has been no big popular uprising to support them. They're basically fucked and they know it. They need to be arrested and jailed.

26. And their gun rights should be revoked

They have pointed guns at law enforcement officers and used their guns to threaten violence.

Please recall that just last year a couple from the Cliven Bundy stand off went on to shoot and kill a couple of police officers as they ate lunch.

These people cannot be trusted as responsible gun owners.

They have now officially used firearms in the commission of a crime.

48. Then you'll have dead police officers. Make them put down there weapons as they leave the bldg

 

and then escort them (in shackles) into the waiting paddy-wagon. Confiscate their guns - they won't need them where they're going.

Then when they get out of jail - they are convicted felons and can't own a firearm. That would make me so happy + I'd probably split a gut laughing!

they can just move themselves out. At night if necessary so no one sees they're embarrassed. Go the back roads and avoid the cameras. DON"T GO BIG GO QUIETLY.
Edit: Snark notwithstanding, they should not be allowed to get away with this.
