Previously: Militia Occupies Federal Building in Oregon After Rancher Arson Convictions

Russia Today reports:

Ammon Bundy, the leader of the armed group occupying a federal wildlife refuge near Burns, Oregon, and four others have been arrested by law enforcement amid gunfire, according to the FBI.

At 4:25 pm on [January 26], the FBI and Oregon State Police "began an enforcement action to bring into custody a number of individuals associated with the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. During that arrest, there were shots fired", the Bureau said in a statement.

The FBI said one person who was "a subject of a federal probable cause arrest is deceased". He said they are not releasing any information on the person "pending identification by the medical examiner's office".

One person suffered non-life threatening injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. He was arrested and is in custody.

The arrested individuals include:
- Ammon Edward Bundy, age 40, of Emmett, Idaho.
- Ryan C. Bundy, age 43, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Brian Cavalier, age 44, of Bunkerville, Nevada.
- Shawna Cox, age 59, of Kanab, Utah.
- Ryan Waylen Payne, age 32, of Anaconda, Montana.

    It's worse than slashdot.

    You have not been back there in a few months I take it? SD is just as bad as it ever was. I think it is actually worse.

    I agree though this is a political trash 'clicky bait' sort of thing. I can understand why you want out.

    It is funny I click on SD and here to get a bit of tech news. The luddites come out in droves. I then head on over to and the posts are MUCH more balanced (which is sad considering it is reddit). If I want political trash I can head over to their front page. Unfortunately that site is *heavily* edited so many times the posts are not very interesting but kinda bland. Healthy skepticism is a good thing. But what I read on SD and here is beyond that. Take for example self driving cars. That is an 'OMG! *amazing*' accomplishment. However, it seems to be a major yawn to most people to the "it is not perfect so therefore everyone is going to DIE and steal your children's jobs!!!" on these two sites.

    Click bait works and the seven deadly sins is its fuel.

    Yeah I've been skimming the last couple weeks and it seems like most of the decent posters left. Obviously they didn't all come here; maybe they just left?

    "Is that really true?" "I just spent the last hour telling you to think for yourself! Didn't you hear anything I said?"
