MALHEUR COUNTY, Ore. (INTELLIHUB) — Things are not looking so good for county officials who already overtly botched the response to the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, led by Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan, and LaVoy Finicum, who was killed by the FBI during an ambush.

Additionally officials failed to redress grievances of local ranchers regarding ongoing corruption taking place amongst the Bureau of Land Management and and other corrupt government and non-government agencies, possibly in an attempt to push through a major uranium mining deal which I exposed on Jan. 23, in an article titled, “Clinton Foundation took massive payoffs, promised Hammond Ranch and other publicly owned lands to Russians along with one-fifth of our uranium ore.”

Now a video has resurfaced that shows Malheur County Sheriff’s Deputies engaging in illegal activities — and it was all caught on tape.

On May 19, 2013, a man by the name of Steve Hindi was “illegally stopped” by “bad cops” at the Malheur County Sheriff’s deputies while driving a rental car.

Hindi said he was stopped by the cops to make him illegally identify himself. During the stop the deputies even took the vin number” from Hindi’s vehicle.

Hindi wrote in the video’s description:

Oregon’s Malheur County Sheriff’s Deputies will apparently do anything to protect the cruel Jordan Valley Big Loop Rodeo. The sheriff’s department raises money at the rodeo, and sheriff’s deputies sit on the rodeo board.

The sheriff’s department will even make illegal traffic stops, and openly talk about what they are doing. Too bad they forgot about that cruiser camera, which recorded every word.

After the stop, Hindi eventually obtained the original Sheriff’s Department dashcam footage which paints the entire picture.

On the video, one of the deputies can be heard saying, “Let’s write that vin number down, that’s a personal car I’m guessing,” in an attempt to acquire more information about their target.

The cops could then be heard saying, “He’s already going to get lawyers […] this guy’s the real deal.”

“Here’s the problem, they didn’t trespass him when we were there […] they asked him to leave.”

The other cop responds, ” Well, even so, we were going off what we were told […] I don’t want to stop the man. We are going to get sued.”

“We are going to be in a world of hurt.”

Hindi says this all has to do with the Jordan Valley Big Loop, and Sheriff Brian Wolfe’s love for the rodeo.

Hindi also said the Malheur County Sheriff’s Department has even previously been caught issuing “false police reports,” displaying the level of corruption.
