Sheriff to Oregon protest holdouts: ‘There doesn’t have to be bloodshed’

Leave a comment

Federal and state authorities said Wednesday the shooting death of one protester and arrest of 8 others who had occupied a federal wildlife refuge came after futile efforts to end the standoff peacefully for 25 days.

“Instead, they have chosen to threaten and intimidate the America they profess to love and through their criminal actions bring these consequences upon themselves,” said Greg Bretzing, FBI special agent in charge.

In a particularly emotional statement before reporters, Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward spoke directly to the remaining half-dozen holdouts at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns, Ore., which has been occupied since Jan. 2.
