Defendants found not guilty of all charges in Oregon Malheur wildlife refuge occupation today October 27th 2016.
The following defendents were cleared of all charges involving the occupation of the Malheur wildlife refuge Ammon Bundy, his brother Ryan, Shawna Cox, David Fry, Jeff Wayne Banta, Kenneth Medenback, and Neil Wampler.
Im sure that the feds are pissed off now. The trial in Nevada will be tougher, as prosecutors are surely upping their game, based on this not-guilty verdict in Oregon. Just how much public resources are they going to throw at trying to convict innocent men?
After the trial Ammon Bundy’s attorney Marcus Mumford got into a heated exchange with the judge, and the dispute had to do with how his client should be set free. The judge reportedly responded to the effect of stating some kind of warrant in Nevada was pending, Mr. Mumford requested to see the paperwork, and the judge denied the request. The judge reportedly ordered all of the media out of the court room, and then they tased Marcus Mumford and took him into custody.
This is Mr. Mumford’s report;
“I just turned to [the marshals] and said show me what papers you have. Then, the next thing I know they surrounded me, took ahold of me, and they were talking about I was resisting arrest,” Mumford said. “They twisted my legs, put me to the ground, then tased me.”

I use "Rich Garvey Banton" as my pen name, not as a disguise but because it represents three important people and influences in my life.
The reason that getting a pen-name carried so much weight is that there are MANY people named "Ryan Thompson", but few if not none for "Rich Garvey Banton".
Rich = My father Richard Glen Thompson
Garvey = Marcus Mosiah Garvey
Banton = Buju Banton AKA Marcus Myrie
These people are all very significant influences to me, and if you want to learn more about them you can either ask me, or google their names.
