MB I have to agree. I’m not sure what they really thought they were going to accomplish or even what their real motive was. I mean the Hammond’s reported to prison, end of story. Were they coerced and intimidated into it? Most likely. If the folks at the refuge were going to do something for the Hammond’s then it should have been done before they were ever picked up. As you said MB the rest of the people/ states are not lobbying to get control of the land. Of course most of the land in question would wind up part of only a few ranches compared to the countless ranches across the state so why would many people care about it. Public education of the governments misdoings and backing by the states is the only way they will get support. I just pray it ends peacefully but I have a bad feeling it won’t and the repercussions could be devastating on both sides.
