I’m still not exactly sure what happened between the protesters at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and the authorities, but one thing is for sure, a person was killed and eight others are in jail. Supposedly the point was to educate people about the Constitution and government overreach, but I’m not sure they accomplished anything. Time will tell if the person who was shot was armed and threatening the Oregon State Police and FBI, but if not, I do hope whoever killed him is prosecuted. While I think organized legal protests should be held, taking over property which is not yours is not the best way to obtain public support for your cause. Over time more details will emerge and will hopefully paint a clearer picture of just what happened between the protesters and the authorities and why someone was killed.
