Video: Ammon Bundy delivers message from jail

Ammon Bundy's lawyers have released a video in which he delivers a message over the phone to the remaining refuge occupiers: "please stand down." Bundy currently sits in the Multnomah County Jail with 10 other standoff members arrested this week. In the video posted to his lawyers' YouTube page, attorney Lissa Casey sits on a bed with Ammon's wife Lisa Bundy who has the phone on speaker.  Bundy's attorney Mike Arnold speaks first, stating how he wants the recording of the phone call to be sent to refuge occupiers, but not posted publicly. "Please remember that anything you say could be used against you," Arnold tells Bundy. "Trust no one and remember that your neck is sticking out." A moment later Ammon's voice is heard on the phone call. "To those at the refuge, please stand down. This was never meant to be an armed standoff," says Ammon Bundy. "We only came to expose abuse and educate people about their rights protected by the Constitution of the United States. Please do not make this something it was never meant to be. Go home to your families."...more
