(INTELLIHUB) — A new bill introduced to Congress on Mar. 16, by Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, will strip authoritative policing powers from the Bureau of Land Management along with the U.S. Forest Service and hand the powers over to local Sheriffs as was originally intended.

The bill, titled “H.R.4751 – Local Enforcement for Local Lands Act of 2016,” was introduced following numerous reports of gross negligence on the part of the BLM and other agencies, leading up to the occupation of the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, which ended with the death of rancher LaVoy Finicum and the arrest of other ‘conspirators.’

In an exclusive interview conducted by Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas, Ryan Bundy, one of the ‘Oregon Occupiers,’ stated that Dwight Hammond was in fear of his life after being terrorized and threatened by the U.S. Government.

“I am actually pretty disappointed in that but I do understand their decision. It was the Hammond’s decision themselves to turn themselves in,” Ryan Bundy told Ambellas.

“My personal feelings are—well I had a direct conversation with Dwight Hammond just two days ago and I asked Dwight: is this really what you want? Do you really want to go to prison? Is that what you really feel you want to do? And well he got angry at me. He said, of course not, of course not. But he said they will put a bullet in my head. He goes they will kill me without hesitation. And he goes, and they will throw me in the back of the truck. And he goes, I will not be the only body there. […] They—meant anyone else supporting them. And so he reported to prison not out of duty, not out of respect for the government, not out of guilt for crime that they say he committed, it was simply out of fear of the oppressive government.”
