I would have said, "Don't get hauled off to jail and shot."....................
...and I woulda said, "Shelter in Place".
My advice: Take a whole bunch of people with you, as many as possible. That prevents us from being knocked off one at a time, and makes it much more difficult for any trying to stop you and your video phones.
I am wondering how many businesses will refuse service to park rangers after this mess is finally over.
“Dear Park Service Rangers....”
Your cushy job is about to become a living hell - we’ve always been especially nice to Park Servivce personnel - that is gonna’ end.
The National Park Service Ranger that most people are used to dealing with is sitting around furloughed right now. They are not the people who are writing tickets or blocking access. The staff on duty now are mostly “Protection Rangers”...basically they are the Federal police that work for NPS.
I know quite a few NPS personnel who are not “protection” rangers and most of them would like nothing more than to have the parks open for visitors but they aren’t allowed to work right now.
House GOP should drag these “following orders” employees and those giving “the orders” into hearings and EXPOSE them to the country.
Agreed. Thus my tagline.
Well, then maybe they should stand with us, in uniform, and protest or do they care about their jobs more than their country?
If so that’s quite selfish.
Police and military are obliged to refuse illegal orders.
These orders are not illegal. They are just vindictive.
Parks are closed all the time for various reasons. this time its for spite but it isn’t illegal.

It is illegal to detain people under armed guard without cause, as the NPS did with the elderly people in the hotel at Yellowstone.
These orders are illegal AND vindictive.
You may be right but it would depend on why they were detained at the inn.
If they were detained for safety reasons, then that wouldn’t be illegal even though it could be construed as vindictive.
You might think it’s illegal. I might think it’s illegal. That however doesn’t mean that ii is illegal.
I assign a healthy portion of blame to the NPS and its employees.
They could have refused, en-masse, to enforce the Spitehouse’s BS directives.
Sadly, I think you are 100% correct.
Thud-bump. Well worth repeating.
These guys are such low scum, honest cockroaches cross the street to avoid them.
The NPS are now Obama’s BROWN SHIRTS!! I will NEVER look at them the same way.
