Tannenholz letter: Refuge takeover

The occupation of the wildlife sanctuary in Oregon needs to come to an end. First Amendment rights to freedom of expression and peaceful protests ended for those militia people when they took up arms and threatened people who came onto the refuge with opposing points of views. The four remaining who are holed up in a building need to be arrested and go through the court system. But then people have died for minor causes, whether it be suicide or killed by others. Calling those militia people heroes is ridiculous. Calling law enforcers malicious is ridiculous, too.
