The occupation has ended peacefully. The last of the holdouts are in Federal custody. We can hope lessons have been learned and it will never happen again. Working with government to share our lands and working through our political system for change, are the best ways to handle disputes. Let’s hope that is what is done in the future.
The FBI practiced great restraint in order to avoid another Waco or Ruby Ridge. The death of LaVoy Finicum is another matter and very sad.
The clean up and repair can now be done and Harney County can get on with life without the fear of possible flying bullets any more. We can all visit soon to enjoy the birds and scenic beauty.
