Armed guards surround Bundy, supporters fear imminent threat

Local rancher Cliven Bundy may have his cattle back, but his supporters say they are still preparing for an imminent threat. Militia groups from all over the country say they are flocking to the Bundy ranch to protect the family from a feared federal government raid. The Bureau of Land Management allowed Bundy to release his cattle Saturday, after they felt threatened. Bundy now has a whole contingent of armed guards surrounding him 24 hours a day. "They're just there, trying to make sure something crazy doesn't happen to him," Bundy's son Ammon Bundy said. His security detail and family feel he is someone to be protected because of what the federal government could do. "There were snipers on the hills and armed guards and you know, military forces with cameras all over." Ammon Bundy said. Cliven Bundy fears that the government could gather up again because they never reached a formal deal. He is also trying to determine whether federal agents damaged any of his cattle before they released them. The BLM only allowed the family to open up the gate of the pen where the animals were being held because officers were afraid of violence. As of now, no one has cleared him to take back his cattle for good. Taking the stage to address supporters Monday, Bundy was quickly obscured behind his guards. The detail told 8 News NOW they are now patrolling the area 24 hours a day looking for federal snipers...more

Bundy is a criminal should have been locked up years ago. Why the heck government wait so long to take action on this issue. Asshat Bundy rather die along with his family and friends fellow ranchers because Bundy family refuse to pay their taxes. pathetic! No win situation for the Bundys. Uncle Sugar will massacre the whole lot in a matter of minutes and take all the land and cattle. Funny the clown ranchers so narrow minded they think they won Victory! LOL

Even if the Bundy family eventually lose their cattle and their grazing permit, watching the feds back off and leave, even if only temporary, was a victory that you can't take away.

Oh yeah... Bundy is a criminal. Never mind the fact he is a rancher that has legally utilized PUBLIC land, secured surface rights for that use to include building of roads and water stations. Never mind the fact that the property in dispute has been designated as a transmission line route for a $5 billion dollar Chinese Solar energy project coordinated by Harry Reid.

Never mind the fact that Public Land use is SUPPOSED to be for the Public, not a high dollar Political kick-back for Washington insiders.

It's time people woke up and objected to the corruption and quit blaming the victims of a Federal Government that is out of control with greed.

The Federal Governemtn may have a legitimate Court Order as deemed legitimate my questionable people ... but they have no right to exert excessive and potentially lethal force to enforce the order in order to facilitate the construction of yet another Pork Project using public assets. It's all about money. It's all about greed. It's all about Reid.
