Judge Brown Stacking the Deck Against the Bundys
By Shari Dovale and Bret Roush
Judge Anna Brown seems to determined to taint the jury pool in favor of the prosecution in the Malheur Protester case in Oregon.
Jury Selection began today in Portland, with Judge Brown leading the procedures to whittle down 1500 potential jurors to about 200. Those proceedings were not without tremendous government bias.
Several reports on social media from witnesses in the courtroom today show the prejudice against the defendants. About 25% of the court questionnaires were returned and those were heavily laced with quotes from the leftist media.
Some of the most notable statements from the potential jurors included:
- I don’t believe the public should be allowed to carry guns. Only the police and law enforcement should be able to.
- I am an attorney. I believe laws were broken. The whole thing was stupid. The 2nd amendment should be repealed. It was an ineffective protest.
- There are limits to all of our rights of the 2nd amendment to maintain a civil society. Whatever limits Judge Brown puts on the jurors should be followed as law states.
All of these potential jurors were allowed to remain in the jury pool.
More of the other potential jurors remaining in the pool include:
- A person who works with the prosecution’s wife.
- A man who is employed by the BLM and Fish/Wildlife.
- A person who’s stepson is FBI.
- A person who said yes I believe it was wrong to take over a place and yes I believe they broke the law.
At one point, Judge Brown said anybody who holds an erroneous position against the law will be dismissed. Morgan Philpot brilliantly used these words against her, saying, “ I carry a gun, because I have a gun right. You are opposed to me having that right, therefore you hold an erroneous position against the law.”
Toward the end, Ryan Bundy scored a big win when the prosecution and Judge Brown attempted to exclude a potential juror because they stated they do not believe the BLM has the right to own land. Brown tried to say that the person is biased, therefore unacceptable as a juror. However, Bundy stood up and argued that the juror was dismissed before the defense had been given an opportunity. Knowing she was wrong, Judge Brown brought back that person back into the jury pool.
It is painfully obvious that the deck is being stacked against the Political Prisoners. This trial will show the governments temperament when any citizen disagrees with them.
