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.

    Bureaucrats sitting inside the Beltway or oblivious city dwellers who get their dinner from the magic supermarket don't get that. But if they drive the ranchers out of existence one thing they will not continue to get from the magic supermarket is steak, ribs, and hamburger at a price they're willing to pay.

    And that's exactly what those elites want to happen. They don't want the unwashed masses eating meat at all - they would prefer to feed them bugs. [] They are turning up the heat very slowly, until they have the proles subsisting on Soylent [].

    Yeah, I read the "trend" toward entomophagy the same way, another way to put the screws to the proles.

    But I think driving those people to consider non-traditional sources of food is quite risky. I hear champagne- and caviar-fed plutocrat has a delighful flavor.
