(LAS VEGAS, KXNT, ASSOCIATED PRESS)A funeral service was held in NOrth Las Vegas for the man who died at the hands of BLM agents during a skirmish in Red Rock Canyon in February.
The service for DAndre Berghardt Jr. took place at Nehemiah Ministries Christian Church.
Berghardt was moving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas to begin working with his brother when he was shot and killed Feb. 14.
Jacob Hafter, a lawyer representing the family says that various delays, including the forensic examination of Berghardts body, contributed to the delay of the funeral and burial. Hafter says the family still has questions about the circumstances of Berghardt. If we find the authorities did not handle the situation correctly because of improper training or whatever the case may be, then yes, we will pursue justice through the only system we have in this country, which is our court system, said Hafter in an interview at the funeral with KXNT.
According to BLM officials, Berghardt made threats to kill and tried to grab a rifle from a Nevada Highway Patrol vehicle before he was shot.
Cellphone video of shooting:
In February, two BLM rangers fatally shot an unarmed man, DAndre Berghardt Jr., during a confrontation on State Route 159. A witness captured video footage of the shooting.
Believing the officers were not property trained and used unnecessary force, Dahl said he met with Rep. Steven Horsford, D-Nev., in Washington D.C., who was also concerned about the slaying. Dahl said they were told the BLM was investigating the incident.
Its a little scary, he said.
Reminds me of the homeless guy who was beaten to death — by the police — in Anaheim.
(Posted here in entirety because while searching for news of this thuggish BLM killing, found several related articles have already been scrubbed).
its said that one of the two BLM goons.... was first inspired to join the Bureau as he thought that BLM sounded a lot like BLAM...as in BLAM BLAM!!! /
They wouldn’t be trying to hide anything now, would they?
The racist federal government cannot allow an innocent black man to walk along a highway near BLM ‘owed’ land.
The BLM investigating the BLM. Wonderful.
Like the IRS investigating the IRS. The ATF investigating the ATF. State investigating State Actions in Benghazi.
And "Justice" (so-called) the over-arching enforcer keep all outsiders away.
So if you’re keeping score:
Blacks killed by BLM 1 - Blacks killed by Cliven Bundy 0
In a related story, the Fox has been brought in to investigate what happened to the chickens.
ahahah THANK YOU!! Im inspired by ever stranger stuff lately
At least Cliven Bundy didn’t kill anyone.

Spooky video. Target practice? They had him restrained and let him go.
Your post at #7 wins post of the day and needs to be restated again and again across the net in ten different ways.
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) takes seriously the protection of life and property and treats any loss of human life with the utmost concern. In coordination with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, the BLM is investigating the incident and is able to provide at this time the following preliminary information from the ongoing investigation.
On Friday, February 14, 2014, the BLM received several reports from citizens who were concerned for the safety of a man walking along the highly trafficked State Route 159 highway. The citizens reported the man was walking in and out of on-coming traffic. In addition, two cyclists who were bicycling along the highway reported seeing this same man and expressed fear for themselves and the safety of others in the area.
BLM Law Enforcement Officers were dispatched to the scene, and upon arrival made contact with the man later identified as 20-year-old DAndre Berghardt Jr. BLM officers attempted to speak with Mr. Berghardt in order to ascertain his identity and welfare. At this point, officers ordered Mr. Berghardt out of the roadway.
Mr. Berghardt then began to actively resist the officers. Despite continued attempts to gain compliance through verbal commands and utilizing available secondary measures, including multiple Taser deployments, pepper spray and a baton, the officers were unable to gain compliance. During this time, Mr. Berghardt attempted to gain entry into two occupied privately owned vehicles, which the officers physically tried to prevent for the safety of the public.
A Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper also arrived on the scene and the officers attempted to take Mr. Berghardt into custody after the NHP Trooper deployed his Taser. Mr. Berghardt threatened to shoot the officers and entered the running NHP cruiser where he reached for the troopers duty rifle contained in a firearms safety rack. Fearing for their own safety and the safety of the numerous citizens in the immediate vicinity, the two BLM officers engaged Mr. Berghardt with gunfire. Medical personnel were summoned and Mr. Berghardt was pronounced deceased at the scene.
Both BLM law enforcement officers involved have significant law enforcement experience and training, including mandatory annual training. One officer has 17 years of law enforcement experience; the other officer has more than nine years of federal law enforcement experience.
In accordance with standard procedure, this incident is under investigation by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department and the BLM. Until the investigation is complete, the BLM is unable to provide further comments on the details of the shooting or the investigation. The officers have been placed on routine administrative leave.
