OREGON LIVE UPDATE

I am waiting for a new video to upload to my Facebook page. In the meantime, I
am posting this to let you know that I am now paying attention to this unfolding
situation.



I received the following press release via the (OSP) Oregon State Police this
afternoon:

***UPDATE #1*** MEDIA INFORMATION FOR HARNEY COUNTY SITUATION


News Release from Oregon State Police
Posted on FlashAlert: January 3rd, 2016 12:39 PM
This release is on behalf of the Harney County Sheriff's Office. Please see attached press release issued by Sheriff Dave Ward.
***End Update***

Previous Release:
On behalf of the Harney County Sheriff Dave Ward in regards to today's planned rally in Burns;

The sheriff's office is requesting media not call their dispatch center as it is hindering citizens calling in for emergency services. The sheriff's office will make a statement following the rally.
__________
The following statement was attached:
On January 2, 2015 in Harney County, Oregon a group of men and women seized the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge Headquarters located in Harney County, Oregon.  The refuge headquarters was empty at the time of the seizure due to it being the weekend.

These men came to Harney County claiming to be part of militia groups supporting local ranchers, when in reality these men had alternative motives to attempt to over throw the county and federal government in hopes to spark a movement across the United States.

We are currently working jointly with several organizations to make sure the citizens of Harney County are safe and this issue is resolved as quickly and peaceful as possible.  At this time we do not have any information that any other areas in Harney County are in immediate danger.
 
We ask that people stay away from the refuge for their safety.  We also ask that if anyone sees any of these individuals in the area to please contact law enforcement and do not confront the individuals themselves.
__________
Do tell.
Well...
If you are following this story, too...it now looks as though there is a bit more to this whole flap than what's been reported by most of the media, so far.
