Good change: Letting the public see

Written January 28th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

The FBI on Thursday told us what happened when several of the Malheur refuge protesters were arrested and one was killed. It demonstrated that informing the public is the right thing to do, and that it can be done in a timely manner even while a formal investigation is still going on.


And now, the loss of a life

Written January 26th, 2016 by Hasso Hering

We have to wait to find out exactly what happened, but so far the terse FBI announcement leaves a bad taste about the arrests of some of the protesters in Harney County and the killing of one of them.
