Trump pardons ranchers in case that inspired 2016 occupation of national wildlife refuge in Oregon

Good One! HUZZAH!

President Donald Trump has pardoned two ranchers whose case sparked the armed occupation of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Dwight and Steven Hammond were convicted in 2012 of intentionally and maliciously setting fires on public lands. The arson crime carried a minimum prison sentence of five years, but a sympathetic federal judge, on his last day before retirement, decided the penalty was too stiff and gave the father and son much lighter prison terms.

You don't know the details! These ranchers were being fucked around for years by the BLM who was also fucking with their water rights and preventing them access to their own resources! When a wild fire started on BLM land and moved toward the family ranch they were forced to start a back burn to stop the fire from spreading and destroying their ranch land! When the BLM would do nothing to control their own out of control fire they criminally charged the ranchers with arson and imprisonment! These men and their families had own their lands for generations and had grazed their herds on BLM land because they had grazing rights too, but the federal government continues to pressure land owners anyway they can in order to seize their land! They also shot another rancher to death who came to their aid from Arizona. They killed him in an unprovoked attack! It's on film. The BLM used rangers and ATF agents to face off with the ranchers who were standing up for their rights while the county officials and the sheriff did nothing but chickenshit their way out of standing up for the rights of their residents! You need to get the story right. The US media does not cover these stories honestly if at all!
