    I'd like to see this idjit jailed. I'm not sure what it's gonna take to get that done.

    •  That's surprising to me. (0+ / 0-)

      I can't believe they don't have a thousand US Marshals- but I assume you must know how many they have.

      Seems like there ought to be some sort of cooperative agreements between Federal law enforcement agencies to support each other, even if there aren't a thousand Marshals.

        with this particular bit of work, they don't have that many, though. 'Specially if word's come down from on high not to shoot anybody obstructin' this thing.

        Marshals do a lot of different stuff all the time. Nowadays they're in everything from witness protection to computer analysis of forensics. All well and good and needed, and all shorthanded departments.

         For this, what you want really are some deputies and some cowhands (ex-Marines who can remember what they learnt about riding horses  in the war, would be my first choice) who don't have a problem with not being safe in rounding up these cows and trucking 'em to sale barns. Makin' sure, as part of their not bein' safe, people threatenin' them UNDERSTAND it ain't safe to do that, either. Cameras for Faux Noise be damned (and or stomped to doll rags under stampeding cattle would suit me).

        Sale barns more deputies need to keep safe against Bundy's pals' arsonist / thieving tendences once the cows are in the pens. So a thousand head of US federal folks is ... about 1/3 what you need, for this. Really.

      •  which is gonna help how, exactly? (0+ / 0-)

        Seriously. I used to be Air Force. This thing needs to be more subtle than them.
