Lets not forget that they still killed LaVoy Finicum in cold blood.

The violence of the state cannot be pardoned.

All experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government

he shouldn't have told them to go ahead and shoot him. or maybe

At least get the dead man's name right. It's not Roy.

[–] a100167 0 points 18 points (+18|-0) ago 

LaVoy was his name for those wondering.

My apologies. Not sure where I got Roy from.

He ran from the police then jumped out of his car and didn't put his hand up yelling "gowonin shot me" obviously trying to martyr himself. How is this different than Anthony Lamar Smith?

They were driving to an event where they had been invited to speak. There were kids and women in the car. When they stopped, the FBI illegally fired into their stopped car, shooting through the windows.What would you do if people were shooting at you, big guy?

Im unfamiliar with the other person you mentioned. I'll look into it though.

Finicums brothers were not convicted

That's a funny way of saying "found Not Guilty by a jury of your peers".

[–] RageAgainstTheAmish 0 points 5 points (+5|-0) ago 

Probably because it was not full of their peers

[–] truthwoke33 3 points -2 points (+1|-3) ago  (edited ago)

If he wasn't convicted it means it never even went to court just FYI. I thought people had accepted not being convicted at all is better than being found innocent.

con·vict

verb

declare (someone) to be guilty of a criminal offense by the verdict of a jury or the decision of a judge in a court of law.

[–] Improbablyanasshole 0 points 1 points (+1|-0) ago 

First you get charged with a crime, then you go to court to see if you get a conviction or acquitted.

Sooooo AWESOME! Thank you, President Trump!!

The Hammonds are devoted family men, respected contributors to their local community, and have widespread support from their neighbors, local law enforcement, and farmers and ranchers across the West.

The degenerate deep state will not stop until it destroys ALL traditionalist role-models & non-degenerate community leader.

The cancer must be stopped!

You understand the plan. That is it. Hate drives the Left and nothing else.

This President pardoned people who stood up to the branch of government he now controls. If this doesn’t convince you that he is there to drain the swamp, nothing will.

[–] Fahrvergnaked 2 points 7 points (+9|-2) ago 

I would love to agree, except that any president worth their free bowl of M&M's knows that throwing these people in jail after they chose to surrender peacefully is a recipe for violent insurrection.

He and his campaign brought the extent of the corruption in the USA to the forefront. Everyone now knows. Everyone is now aware. Everyone watched it during the campaign and everyone is still seeing it now. If you weren't aware that corruption was status quo from the bottom to the top--the lowest levels of society to the highest levels of government, you now are. If he doesn't follow through on draining the swamp it does not bode well for the future of this country.

[–] burns29 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

I don’t believe he did it because he was afraid of revolution. Look at what he has done to the EPA in support of landowner rights to their water. I believe he did this because he saw what the BLM bureaucracy did to these people was wrong and he was trying to do the right thing for the people. This is something we haven’t seen in so long from either political party, I understand your skepticism.

[–] Koalemos_Grottesco 0 points 3 points (+3|-0) ago 

That is quite melodramatic, he gains politically by pardoning while he pisses off his base if he doesn't. It can explained entirely independently of some selfless desire to "drain the swamp", which thus far Trump has not done by any means. Don't get me wrong, I generally like Trump and I'm thrilled at this action, but he isn't the savior figure some of you have made him out to be.

Good. Now he needs to work on giving all the Federal lands back to States and private citizens. The Federal ownership of so much land in the Western States is a real problem for our entire system of constitutional government.

Ignore the climate change bullshit part but this Ted talk is amazing for just that sort of thing. https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change

Trump pardons Oregon ranchers at center of 40-day standoff | TheHill

'Dwight Hammond has served about three years of his sentence and Steven Hammond has served about four of his, and Trump’s pardon will set them free. '

'The Hammonds’ case became the inspiration for the 40-day armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in 2016. '

'Dwight Hammond, 76, and his son Steven, 49, were convicted in 2012 and sent to prison on arson charges. '

'The Washington Post first reported last month that the Hammonds were among a group Trump was considering for pardons or commutations, including former Illinois Gov. '

'One of the occupiers, Robert LaVoy Finicum, died, and a handful pleaded guilty to charges related to the occupation. '

Good job Trump. Now how about pardons for other political prisoners like Shafer Cox? 30 years on hearsay from the FBI informant, yep. How about Marine Sgt. Chrles Dyer? Speak out about how the government has replaced the constitution with the UCC and get framed. For the Sgt. they useed his cheating ex to accuse him of abusing their daughter, 30 years on no evidence, while prosecutors whithold exculpatory evidence.

This shit needs to get blasted more. I didn't know a bout anything of these things. But one of the things that helped in the Bundy case was the Judge telling the prosecution to stick it where the sun dont shine because of illegal shit like withholding evidence.

Either the system starts fixing itself or its up to the rest of us to start locking and loading.

[–] selpai 0 points 4 points (+4|-0) ago 

No shit... Maybe he's the real deal after all.

[–] Rawrination 1 points 0 points (+1|-1) ago 

Thats entirely possible, but if he wanted a nodownside political theater move, this would be perfect.

This is a sign of good things, but do not trust it unless you start seeing some actual change in reducing corruption. Ideally with him getting off the kike cock.
