Why Wasn’t Cliven Bundy Shot or Burned Alive?

Bullies thrive when they’re able to censor the information pertaining to their actions, and when their victims are isolated. Case in point, the differing outcomes of Ruby Ridge, Waco and Bundy Ranch.

There exists lots of great non-lamestream media coverage of all three incidents included in this video. I encourage you to do your own research and come to your own conclusions.

Back in 2009 when on the road with The Motorhome Diaries I (along with Cop Block founder Ademo Freeman) stopped by both Ruby Ridge, Idaho and Waco, Texas, and captured a video on each incident.

Please pardon the wind noise in the Waco video — after realizing how detrimental it could be to the audio, we bought and started using shotgun microphones when filming outside.

Though I’ve been through Nevada a number of times, I haven’t yet stopped by the Bunkerville Allotment, where the Bundy Ranch incident happened. Fortunately, lots of other people did, which had very real and positive ramifications. One of the best videos I’ve found, that shows the unity of those on the ground, is:

Use technology like Bambuser or Cell 411 (a sponsor of the Mobile Accountability for Cops tour) to get connected to those in your sphere, use your feet to meet neighbors, and invest in yourself — understand causes to perceived problems and cultivate skills to safeguard yourself and others (i.e. medical, self-defense, deescalation, etc.).
