It looks like despite the efforts of jolly rancher Cliven Bundy and his rag-tag team of gun-toting lunatics, the rule of law in the Nevada and Utah deserts has not been disbanded after all. Via KLAS-TV
The I-Team has confirmed that FBI agents have launched a formal investigation into alleged death threats, intimidation and possible weapons violations that culminated with a dangerous showdown on April 12, and the first people to be interviewed by FBI agents are Metro Police, starting with Clark County Sheriff Doug Gillispie. [...]
FBI agents also spoke to an entire squad of Metro officers, who were on the scene to act as a buffer between the crowd and the BLM. Bundy supporters have insisted in emails and calls to 8 News NOW that no one in the crowd pointed weapons at BLM or Metro, but officers told the I-Team that is exactly what they saw, that many with guns set up behind women and children.
Pointing guns at law enforcement agents and threatening to shoot them is, it turns out, a crime. Go figure.
