The Trial For The Oregon Occupiers Is Shaping Up To Be Bizarre
Jury selection for the trial is just beginning, but the early proceedings even had some oddities.By Ben Lawson | September 7, 2016
The case of a group of far-right, armed protesters occupying federal land in Oregon earlier this year was certainly an odd one.
And if their past behavior is any indication, we are in for an even weirder trial.
The protesters occupied the wildlife refuge for 41 days to protest two local ranchers being charged with arson and to demand the federal government give the land to locals. Many of the protesters are charged with conspiracy and possession of a firearm on a federal facility.
