Sled long story short BLM has been taking land in the area. A couple of ranchers got arrested on trumped up charges served the 6 months that they were sentenced. New Judge comes into town says 6 months is not enough and sentences them to 5 more years after they have already been out of prison a while. The Bundy group shows up and takes over the wildlife refuge office. Ranchers report to prison anyway. Bundy group basically is demanding the public lands be turned back over to the state and the ranchers released. Feds say no and here we are.
