Reporter Pete Santilli Accepts Plea Deal in Bundy Ranch Case

Reporter Pete Santilli Accepts Plea Deal in Bundy Ranch Case

If you have been following the Bundy Ranch trials, then you are familiar with reporter Peter Santilli, who face a plethora of trumped up charges against him that could have ended him up in prison for life.

The week, the Marine veteran, accepted a plea deal that allowed him to be freed from the Southern Nevada Detention Center.

Redoubt News reports:

Pete Santilli’s attorney dropped a bombshell in a Las Vegas courtroom today when he stated that his client has reached a plea agreement with the government.

Chris Rasmussen, Santilli’s attorney, also withdrew every motion their team has filed based on the plea deal.

The agreement includes Santilli agreeing to a Felony count of obstruction of justice, based on his blocking a BLM truck prior to the Bunkerville standoff.

Santilli will receive ‘time served’ and is expected to be released within the next few days. No other details have been released for this deal.

Early this morning, I spoke to Santilli via phone and he was indeed released and spoke of how good it felt to be free again.  The vast majority of that conversation was off the record, but there is no doubt that he did what he thought was right considering the odds against him.

Which doesn't mean it was justice. Unfortunately in the Westminster adversarial system which the US system is based on, it's angled toward applying the full force of all the state's resources against a defendant while the defendant and his defence team is left to prepare their case using whatever the defendant can provide. So the state can and normally does conduct endless forensics, invite endless "expert" witnesses even from overseas, at whatever cost, they don't care, while the defendant is left to counter all of that with whatever he can come up with, combined with the impartiality of the law, which is real, but doesn't always count in front of a jury, who make decisions as  all humans do based not on fact but on emotion, even when they're told by the judge emotion should not enter into it.

And the Feds want the land, so they've fitted these guys up, and they have no regard for wrecked lives or anything else. Plus they get to pick the judge which they do when it's important and they won't be found out. You could tell the picked judge in an earlier decision in this saga where the Judge decided not to admit exculpatory evidence on what seemed to me to be highly prejudicial grounds.

The only comforting thought is all the people involved in this injustice will be answerable, in this life or the next. You can't avoid karma good or bad and the sad thing is, people who are prepared to execute injustice like this, far reaching injustice that affects multiple lives all down the line because families are involved here too, don't know what they're letting themselves in for, because if they did, they'd tell their superiors to go to hell, they'll do their jobs but they won't compromise their own integrity and if their boss doesn't like that go ahead and fire me. And they'll all be wishing they'd said that at the time, years or decades from now, when the karma comes back.
