Federal prosecutors trying to get charges reinstated against Bunkerville rancher Cliven Bundy and his sons have dragged out a base canard once again.
A judge threw out the case because the prosecutors had failed to disclose potentially exculpatory evidence to the defense.
In a section of the 88-page brief filed with the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that argues that prosecutors were simply trying to balance disclose of data against “protecting witnesses and victims from real and on-going threats,” prosecutors note that “in June 2014, Jerad and Amanda Miller, two extremists who had been at Bundy’s property in April, murdered two Las Vegas police officers as they ate lunch, then draped a Gadsden flag over one of the officers and shouted this was the start of ‘a revolution,’ and later killed a civilian as well.”
What they continue to neglect to mention is that the Millers were a couple of leftist, anti-authoritarian lunatics who showed up at the Bundy ranch standoff with BLM agents trying to confiscate his cattle but were told by the Bundys to leave because of their “very radical” views.
The couple also showed up at a left-leaning march in Lafayette, Ind., the previous November, according to a CBS affiliate in Chicago.
While living in Lafayette, Jerad Miller and his wife Amanda took part in the “Million Mask March,” a gathering of protesters from the Occupy movement, anarchists, and hacktivists, the television station reported.
Linking the lunatic Millers with the Bundys is ridiculous. The Millers were killed in a standoff with police.
