He's guilty of being stupid. You can't posthumously redact a Darwin Award once it's been bestowed upon you.

He seemed like a genuine patriot to me. How was he stupid? Was it because he decided to go do something about the land grabs?

Being stupid to trust the FBI/Fed to be civil about the whole thing. He's not guilty for standing up to the Fed, just guilty for being shot in cold blood. That's my opinion.

Being a patriot and being stupid are not mutually exclusive.

Don't cry for LaVoy, he got exactly what he wanted. Through out the whole ordeal he repeatedly said stupid shit like "They will never take me alive". And when he got pulled over he shouted "Shoot Me! Shoot Me!" making wild gestures that looked like he was reaching for a gun. Are these actions a smart person takes? No.

Sure, I might grant him "patriot" on some token level. But, he was a STUPID patriot who accomplished absolutely nothing for the cost of his life.
