When is stealing from the American people not a crime? If every rancher in the West decided to graze their cattle where they pleased, and there was no government action to stop them, what do you think our national parks and open lands would look like?

The people who think Cliven Bundy is a hero to be celebrated for destroying our public lands without at least some compensation are idiots, plain and simple. The man should be put in jail just like any other thief.
