(Western Journalism) Just one day after his father, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, declared the Bundy Ranch standoff is “not over,” Rory Reid appeared on a local NBC affiliate to express his desire to see patriarch Cliven Bundy prosecuted.
The stalemate between federal Bureau of Land Management agents and the ranching family came to a head Saturday when hundreds of protesters showed up in support of the Bundys. Armed officers threatened the assembly of cowboys and state militia members after employing physical attacks against members of the Bundy family.
BLM action stemmed from the accusation that Bundy failed to pay grazing fees for his cattle over the past two decades. Regardless of the alleged crime, however, millions of Americans were incensed by the excessive force displayed by federal agents on the scene.
