(CNN)The armed occupiers of a wildlife refuge in Oregon say they will turn themselves in on Thursday morning, hours after Cliven Bundy — the father of protest leader Ammon Bundy — was arrested by federal agents.
So how did they arrest Cliven Bundy? He’s been holed up in Nevada for years, as the godfather of tax cheats and armed insurrection protecting his freedom to not pay for grazing on land he does not own?
A Facebook page for his ranch announced that Cliven Bundy, who came to the national spotlight in a fight with the federal Bureau of Land Management over grazing rights for his cattle in 2014, was heading to Oregon earlier Wednesday.
“It’s time,” the post said. “Cliven Bundy is headed to the Harney County Resource Center in Burns Oregon.”
Oh. He TOLD THEM HIS PLANS?! Good job, Patton!
It’s unclear what the charges are holding him, but it is also clear that he still owes the federal government at least $1M Ameros for his grazing fees, and whatever other charges must exist from having snipers aiming at BLM employees.
