Will The Feds Turn Bundy Into A Martyr?

THE GOVERNMENT SET THE STAGE FOR THIS EMBARRASSMENT, SO THEY MUST OWN THE RESULTS.


UPDATE: As of May 2017, there is a new person in charge of Nevada Southern Detention Center. Facility Leader: Janice Killian, Administrator. “Janice Killian was named facility administrator at CoreCivic’s Nevada Southern Detention Center in May 2017.”  http://www.cca.com/facilities/nevada-southern-detention-center

Ammon Bundy was tortured in the Pahrump Federal prison this week. He was shackled and placed in a 3 foot by 3 foot shower stall, and left for 13 hours with no food and water. He was told that they originally intended to keep him cuffed and stuffed in that stall for 72 hours, with no food and no water. They then intended to remove him from the stall, take him to medical and insert an I.V. so as to keep him from dying.

The plans were cut short when several swat team members, dressed in full tactical gear, forcefully removed him from this shower stall and stripped him naked. They proceeded to “inspect” his naked body as he lay on the floor.

He was not able to raise his arms above his head, as instructed, due to the pain he had been in for the previous 13 hours. They had to help him comply.

His legs were bleeding from the shackles and he had trouble walking. Again, they had to help him.

He was thrown into Solitary Confinement, still without his clothing. Later, a guard stuffed his undergarments through the hole in the door.

Ammon is of the firm belief that if he had been left in that stall for the full 72 hours it would have probably killed him. Hear his words in this video:

 

All of this abuse was video recorded by the guards at the Nevada Southern Detention Center, Pahrump. There is evidence of this assault.

When word reached the public, it went viral. We wrote about it, along with several other alternative news outlets. Videos were made. Calls began to officials from Nevada to Washington D.C.

Yet, Ammon still sits in Solitary.

A Call-To-Action has gone out to rally in Pahrump and protest this torture. The Federal government has responded by locking down the prison and refusing ALL inmates any visitors. This seems to be an attempt to turn the prison inmate population against the political prisoners, specifically Ammon Bundy.

Will The Feds Turn Bundy Into A Martyr?This writer received a message from the Nevada Department of Corrections Inspector General’s office. I spoke with a very nice woman named Brooke Keast, who wanted to assure me that their particular department cannot intervene in the Federal facilities.

I was very happy to arrange a phone call with her. She was extremely polite and seemed to genuinely want to help when we talked.

However, during our call, she happened to mention that she was standing next to Mari St. Martin, the Communications Director and Public Information Officer for Governor Brian Sandoval. St. Martin, in turn, happened to be standing next to Governor Sandoval.

Based on the discussion, it would seem that Governor Sandoval had not been informed of the situation playing out in his state. He has now been informed. I hope to see a public statement from his office in the near future. If I don’t, I will be sure to call his office, probably via Ms. St. Martin, and ask why.

Will The Feds Turn Bundy Into A Martyr?

Continuing my discussion with Ms. Keast, she told me how things should be handled, and, of course, how they are handled in the State facilities. She also recommended that we contact the Warden directly, to start with.

Will The Feds Turn Bundy Into A Martyr?

I expect to be hearing from Ms. Keast again. I will let you know when that happens.

The Geneva Conventions is a body of Public International Law, also known as the Humanitarian Law of Armed Conflicts, whose purpose is to provide minimum protections, standards of humane treatment, and fundamental guarantees of respect to individuals who become victims of armed conflicts.

Convention I includes...the Convention prohibits execution without judgment, torture, and assaults upon personal dignity (Article 3). It also grants them the right to proper medical treatment and care.

Convention IV includes … civilians are afforded the protections from inhumane treatment and attack afforded in the first Convention.

The Article 3 of Geneva Conventions covered, for the first time, situations of non-international armed conflicts, types of which vary greatly.  They include traditional civil wars or internal armed conflicts that spill over into other States (countries) … It requires humane treatment for all persons in enemy hands, without any adverse distinction. It specifically prohibits murder, mutilation, torture, cruel, humiliating and degrading treatment, the taking of hostages and unfair trial.

Remember that the prosecution called this an “armed conflict”. They set the stage for this embarrassment, so they must own the results.

The treatment that these political prisoners are enduring are a direct violation of the accords that this country entered into and ratified.

Will The Feds Turn Bundy Into A Martyr?Additionally, keeping in mind that these men have NOT been convicted of any crime, they are supposed to be treated as innocent until proven guilty, as guaranteed by the US Constitution.

The Sixth Amendment to the US Constitution guarantees the right to a speedy trial. Furthermore, Federal law requires that a trial commence within 70 days.

18 U.S. Code § 3161, (c) (1)

In any case in which a plea of not guilty is entered, the trial of a defendant charged in an information or indictment with the commission of an offense shall commencewithin seventy days from the filing date (and making public) of the information or indictment, or from the date the defendant has appeared before a judicial officer of the court in which such charge is pending, whichever date last occurs. If a defendant consents in writing to be tried before a magistrate judge on a complaint, the trial shall commence within seventy days from the date of such consent.

The fact that they have been held for over 400 days, with no trial yet in sight, makes their detention a part of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

The NDAA allows for trial-free, indefinite detention of anyone, including American citizens, so long as the government calls them terrorists. (Remember Harry Reid?)

The government, aided by Judge Gloria Navarro, has continuously denied these defendants all of their Constitutionally-guaranteed rights, as expected under the NDAA.

Navarro has also repeatedly refused them bail. Accused murderers have been offered bail, including a case just this week in North Idaho, in which the suspect is being held until he can come up with one million dollars. Regardless of whether or not he can come up with the money,he was offered the chance for pre-trial release.

Our Federal Government has specifically set out to defy their own laws. And they do so without fear of retribution. Where is Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump? Can they tell us if this is a case for the NDAA, or a case for the US Constitution?

Sharon Wehrly is the sheriff of Nye County, Nevada. Her office has been bombarded with calls. They have decided to become a part of the problem, instead of the solution. They state that only a person with “personal knowledge” can make a written complaint, and this is the only complaint they will investigate.

So, only the prisoners (who have already been threatened with new charges of “Insurrection” if they complain) can file the complaint. But, the Sheriff will not send anyone out there to get the complaint. (Catch-22?)

Is it any wonder that the guards believe they, too, are above the law? Someone needs to be held accountable.

What is their purpose?

This is a good question. The case can be made that Ammon Bundy will end up as a martyr for the US Constitution. People are rallying around him from each state in the union. If something should happen to this man, there seems sure to be a considerable reaction.

We have already had one martyr in LaVoy Finicum. Will the Federal Government insist on another?

Could that be the goal, or just the “Unintended consequence”?

History shows us how bad the government will come out of this, if they end up turning Bundy into a martyr. There are many smart people in government. You think any one of them would have thought this through.

  1. Why do you have such a love affair towards bundy? Each day, thousands of Americans have their rights violated with out due process, but all OK talks about is bundy…. blah blah blah

    1. If you are going to be critical, provide a specific case example that should be presented since you are so aware of “thousands” that are equally in violation of our constitutional rights.

      1. Yep-exactly correct. The Bundys story is completely unremarkable compared to al the faceless others. It is interesting to me how inconsistent the feigned commitment to Constitutional rights is by this group

    2. Our Call to Action for April 27 in Berkeley, California wasn’t about Ann Coulter. It was about her right to speak. Conservative speech is being shut down in Berkeley. She didn’t attend the resulting rally in MLK park, but many speakers and hundreds of attendees did.

      What I’ve posted is about much more than Ammon Bundy. It’s about a prisoner’s right to be treated humanely. Even though Ammon is well known and has a voice thru alternative media, he is still facing severe abuse. What are these guards doing to those who have no voice?

      Corrections Corporation of America, the owner of the prison in Pahrump, is a private, for profit, corporation. Is cheap labor and their profit and loss statement more important to them than proper treatment of prisoners? Do they have an academy to properly train their employees? Is there any oversight of this corporation? By whom?

      In this country, we’re supposed to be innocent until proven guilty. None of these guys were allowed bail and they’ve been in prison for over a year. Speedy trial isn’t happening. Facing your accuser (Dan Love) isn’t happening. Impartial judge isn’t happening. I could go on…

      And these are cases we know about. What about all of the others?

    3. I’ll take a stab…You are right about “thousands have their rights violated.” But our “love” of the Bundy Family is rooted in the fact that they are one-in-a-million who stood up to “evil” gubimint. Maybe you realize there’s good, there’s bad, and there’s “evil” gubiment in our country…mostly because we allowed it to fester. I’m blessed to live in a county run by good gubiment…in a state run by an evil tyrant named Cuomo. And BS…it could be any one of us in there. At the end of the day we all have to step up with them to root out the evil…Thanks for this post. I will share Yugely.

  2. I wonder where the LEO’s are that actually hold to their oath? We see the blatant mercenary gestapo thugs in our law enforcement plan as day. Maybe they need some treatment similar to what they inflict.

      1. That may be true (one reason for the problems), but it matters not if they are elected, hired, CONTRACTED, etc when working for our government they are still constitutionally REQUIRED to take and KEEP the Oath.

        “”…, and ALL executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution.”

        It does not say all those who directly work for the US and several States, it says “ALL”. The corporation that bid on and won the private prison gig IS required to follow the US Constitution while it is doing governmental duties, and I do not care if it is sweeping the floor. “ALL” means exactly that “ALL”, so all must take the Oath when doing governmental business or be fired, and held responsible for their unLawful actions.
        {Dr. Vieira, do you agree, or did I miss something that says something different within the US Constitution?}

        If I am correct in my understanding of the US Constitution, then what those “guards” are doing is *Terrorism, because what they are doing in that prison is NOT constitutional in any way.

        28 C.F.R. Section 0.85 Terrorism is defined as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives”.

  3. Someone will F with you only as long as they think they can. Compare the cartel prisoners in Mexico, guards there don’t dare touch a cartel prisoner, wonder why?

    1. “All of this abuse was video recorded by the guards at the Nevada Southern Detention Center, Pahrump. There is evidence of this assault.” Who knows where that video is now. Why did they video the abuse? Was this personal video or job related? Who has the authority to demand it’s release? Personally, all I have are questions.

      1. All of your questions will be answered in court with discovery which would be the proper place to get the answers on the record.

        A more important issue is that we need to focus on getting someone to get Ammon out before they kill him. Which is their goal. Why is Adam not doing anything?? why hasn’t Brian given Adam the order to get Ammon out? Those are the questions I have!!!!

        1. “All of your questions will be answered in court with discovery which would be the proper place to get the answers on the record”.
          That’s assuming quite a bit…. ‘Assuming’ there is a recording which, quite contrary to the original articles claim there is evidece of, there isn’t…yet. ‘Assuming’, if such video did exist, it doesn’t get ‘lost’. ‘Assuming, a corrupt ‘judge’ would allow it in a court proceeding, etc.
          What I am railing against here, is un-substantiated, un-corroborated statements made by blog authors which many will read and treat as the gospel truth. Unfortunately, I am seeing more and more of that on this website.

          1. I understand your concern about, “un-substantiated, un-corroborated statements made by blog authors”. I keep looking for other sources as well, but the mainstream media is ignoring these cases. The information for the articles has come directly from people sitting in at the trial, for weeks, and reporting on what they see and hear. Also, the owners of Redoubt News are personally known and trusted. If you find anthing from other sources, please let me know. I can be reached at nancy@oathkeepers.org

            I actually found a good mainstream media article today. I knew it was coming because the reporter was being live-streamed as she did the interviews.

  4. Remember the Bundys are part of the same virus that LaVoy was.According to FBI and the rest of the Federal Oath breakers and needed to be dealt with severely and swiftly.
