Breaking: Federal SWAT Team Backs Down In Armed Standoff With Militia, Will Return Cattle


After an announcement (Watch Video) by Clark County Sheriff  Douglas C. Gillespie that BLM officials would back down from their seizure of Cliven Bundy’s cattle, a tense standoff with protesters still was taking place as late as 1pm PST. That armed standoff, however, has been resolved.

According to Brandon Darby of Breitbart news, a Federal SWAT Team has agreed to retreat from a tension ridden stand-off with protesters.

1:01pm Pacific – “It was strange to see armed ranchers and militias stand off against a federal SWAT team under a bridge in a desert wash,” Darby said. “After a few tense moments, the feds agreed to retreat and allow the ranchers and the militia to guide the remaining cattle back to tracts of land used by the Bundy ranch. Both sides were demanding the other disarm first. Both the ranchers and law enforcement refused; ultimately the federal agents began to walk backwards behind retreating vehicles and leave the area.

The Bundy family has also been informed that their cattle will be returned.

…they allowed a member of the Bundy family to travel a half-mile back beyond the conflict area and to see the family’s cattle. The family member returned and made the announcement that the family would receive the remaining heads of cattle and he requested that the ranchers and militia help corral and guide the cattle back.”

Here is a recent image tweet from the standoff area:

As Brandon Darby describes, it was a very tense standoff between armed militia and the Federal SWAT team, with each side demanding that the other disarm.

Last night, WesternJournalism released a email petition tool for individuals to send emails to BLM officials. As of the time of this writing, more than 8000 individuals have used this tool to petition BLM officials to end this standoff peaceably.
