  •  That's precisely what they planned to do (2+ / 0-)

    These are the guys who put one of the most visible sovereign citizen talking heads in front of cameras to speak openly about using human shields.

    They walk right up to the line and then plead innocence.  And it will probably work.  Here's what's likely going to happen.  No one is going to face a day in jail over this.  FBI will perform its investigation, Justice will sorrowfully announce it has no basis to proceed, BLM will seek liens on Bundy's property, and a lot of these guys will go into a database for the day they eventually do fuck up.  If anyone does get prosecuted, it will be a handful of months later and there will be unequivocal evidence of taking aim at law enforcement.  But the vast majority, including Bundy himself, will never set foot inside a court room on criminal charges for anything that happened April 12th.
