Tim DeChristopher raised a paddle at an auction to protest drilling and, as a result, had to do time in prison. A few dozen armed, belligerent anti-earth types deliberately broke the law by riding up Recapture Canyon, and they feel persecuted? They were not cited, arrested or stopped and they are the victims of persecution?
If the law is the law, why is such a crime tolerated when it’s on the good ol’ boys’ side while a peaceful protest on the other side results in prison?
This is a disgusting double standard giving the right-wingnuts waaaaaay more “freedom” than the pro-earth people. Not only should they all be arrested and prosecuted, the law enforcement officials who allowed this crime to occur should be fired and replaced with officers of the law who enforce the law.
It’s a ridiculous, and morally bankrupt, double standard and should be corrected!
