And he refused to pay grazing fees that every other rancher in the country pays, he engaged in court battles to avoid paying to use public land, which most ranchers pay to use. So...he steals from the taxpayer owned land....refuses to pay grazing fees other ranchers do....and refuses to listen to court orders....sounds like a leach to me...Right wing nut jobs defend this guy? Sound like he steals more from the taxpayer than any " welfare queen " does. I feel the feds made a mistake by backing off, I feel they need to make a statement to these people who steal from the taxpayer's land. They should be going in with tanks, helicopters, and arrest the ranchers by force, round up anyone who is in the way, and throw them all in jail. And put anyone in handcuffs who puts the peace officers in danger. By backout out of this, the Feds are giving the right wing nutjob compound freaks a reason to show up to more legal actions. They should have been rounded up and thrown in jail. I thought the right wingers hated people stealing from the taxpayer, well this guy is stealing from the taxpayer, and the right wingers seem to be out to defend him and his crappy beef.
