Bundy Ranch Standoff: Meet the BLM thug who tackled a 57-year old woman. (See my post entitled, Margaret Bundy Houston Tells Town Board of Being Tackled by BLM: Feds Take Cattle Watering System.)
His name is Michael Roop. Roop is a State Staff Ranger for BLM, Oregon and to put it mildly, on the internet, this punk with a gun, badge, pepper spray and a K-9 is trending.

Lon Horiuchi with a gun AND a dog.
They brought him down from Oregon?
Drudge has to put his face up. Let everyone see his face.
I agree...plaster it everywhere. Let it be known that these folks can’t hide behind their sunglasses, ski-masks, and badges.
No not really. I was commenting on the ‘type’. Not the specific goon. Not extremely well known is that Horiuchi was ALSO present at Waco. He later became a consultant to some gun gear store in Idaho, Montana or some such. They had him on their web page bragging about how he was a sniper expert and all.....
I sent them an excoriating email asking them how they could employ a murderer like that and told them the very last place I would buy any gear from is them. It was not long after that, he was gone from the web page - I assume his gig was terminated, too.
To get a hundred agents there they had to bring them from all over.
And, the apparatchik needs to be branded on his forehead with a scarlet letter (an "O" is appropriate) so he's easy to spot when out in public without his militaristic zoot suit!
From a person that went there, drove there from L.A.
I rolled into Laughlin really early, like 5:30 am. So many people had shown up, that we decided to leave in groups. A second group to leave at 8Am as scheduled. Ours was a big group too. About two dozen cars, loaded with passengers.
The highway was almost empty until near Mesquite. Then it was a traffic jam. Motor homes, campers, ATVs running along side the freeway, motorcyles, vehicles, every thing you could possibly imagine. Everyone on their way to Bunkersville. Then it about stopped, just inching along. Word traveled down the traffic line that the feds had blocked the road just out of Mesquite and were searching vehicles for weapons and cell phones. Cell phones were confiscated and smashed. The people were given a chit for $30.00 redemption value. I left my phone at home. Some of us that had four wheel drives decided to just leave the road and head overland. As we got closer to the ridge, we were stopped by armed militia. We could not go any further. We could wait, or turn around and go back to the road. Men, that I suspect were special forces, had climbed the ridge from the back side and captured the snipers. They were at that moment coming down the ridge to take them to Mesquite where they would be let go. They weren’t prisoners, they were just going to be replaced by friendlies.
Because of the roadblock on I-15, people refused to be searched, and refused to turn back. They just pulled off the road and parked. It was like a dam backing up a river. Soon the feds were trapped between the Americans who had already gotten through, and the Americans that had been stopped on the highway. The BLM agents went into full panic mode and called for help. LVPD which had REFUSED to show up to help Americans HAD to show up to rescue BLM that was now trapped and helpless. The blockade was SEVEN MILES LONG! That’s a potload of people.
A group of armed Americans along with local cowboys went to Mesquite to liberate the cows that had been confiscated and held by BLM. They were being driven back home in an old fashioned cattle drive. The feds say it was voluntary, don’t believe it.
I was basically standing around twiddling my thumbs when the word came down that the Director of BLM had surrendered and all forces would be withdrawn. I could not go on. The road was blocked and would be blocked probably for the rest of the day at least. A bunch of us turned around and left. It was over. There was THOUSANDS of people there, and more arriving every minute. The ranch, Gold Butte, the entire area was completely surrounded by Americans. The highway was completely blocked in both directions of people trying to get through. Everyone was very peaceful and friendly. No fights or anything. There was a rumor in the line, that some of the mercenaries hired by the feds had defected and were now on the side of the Americans.
I came back and immediately saw this pack of lies and half truths.
At one point, I-15 was closed in both directions, about seven miles south of Mesquite, because protesters had blocked the freeway. Nearly two dozen police officers and a SWAT unit were at the scene to keep the peace and assist the BLM enforcement officers to safely leave the area. They were scared crapless!
When you click on his picture it takes you to a nice story about him and his dog. Quote from the story.
Last spring, Salem BLM Rangers Mike Roop, Phil Rheiner, and Adam Sulley approached a group of 120 people in the Molalla River Corridor. “As we approached this large group, people were very aware of Gunner and much more willing to comply. If you have a barking dog in your truck, people tend to do what you ask” said Roop.
Lon Horiuchi wannabe....so friggin brave.
blm will most likely promote this piece of shit.
Wow! You should really think about writing an extended story about this. As someone who was not there, I’d be very interested in hearing more. I haven’t really read any stories from people who were there.
Someone You know?
Now the BLM knows how the Redcoats felt.
There were some important lessons to be learned from this situation. The not so obvious one but very important lesson, did you take note of those around you who were on the side of the feds and thought the bundys deserved the treatment they got? Those are the people whom you need to hold out at a distance from you and yours. They are the ones who are not to be trusted on almost any level. If they aren’t the ones who will report you for...fill in the blank...weapons, provisions, whatever, they will be cheering on the black helmets while flash bangs are shot thru your windows and your doors are being smashed in.
You were stopped by armed militia? What did they say? What did you say to them? How did you know about the snipers being captured? How did you know about the cell phones, etc? I’m not doubting you, this is just really amazing.
Good for you.
That’s a good point. I had a vague understanding that this is a litmus test of some kind.
