The Bundy Ranch/BLM standoff which garnered worldwide attention, has now garnered the attention of the FBI
By Staff Writer
BUNKERVILLE, Nevada (INTELLIHUB) — According to KLAS-TV8, FBI agents have spoken with metro police officers who were on scene at the Bundy Ranch the day the standoff with the BLM took place. Moreover Nevada officials are now citing the illegalities of pointing an armed weapon at a police officer.
According to reports, militiamen who were armed on sight that day pointing their guns toward officers may be facing penalties.
Bundy supporters have insisted in emails and calls to 8 News NOW that no one in the crowd pointed weapons at BLM or Metro, but officers told the I-Team that is exactly what they saw, that many with guns set up behind women and children.
“It is not a rumor. When we first got out there and made a left to divide I-15, that is all you saw. You saw kids and women and horses in the backdrop and then men with guns, laying on the ground, in the back of pickup trucks. We’re going, ‘wow, this would never happen in Las Vegas,’ But it was there. That is not a rumor. It is reality and I saw it with my own eyes,” Metro Police Sgt. Tom Jenkins said.
Some, such as Youtuber DAHBOO7, speculate that the FBI infiltrated the Bundy Ranch, gathering intel on camp personnel and family members.
“Now I’m telling you they have droned the hell out of this area […] they can get everyone in HD crystal clear footage”, said DAHBoo7.
