A “perceived victory” by armed citizen militia soldiers at a tense mid-April standoff at Cliven Bundy’s Bunkerville, Nevada, ranch will lead to more violence, according to a leaked 7-page intelligence report from the DHS Intelligence and Analysis division.
Government analysts link the killing of two Las Vegas Metro police officers by a husband and wife team named Jerad and Amanda Miller, who in turn then killed themselves, to the confrontation that resulted when agents of the Bureau of Land Management attempted to seize the Bundy family’s cattle over non-payment of grazing fees.
The report notes that according to Mr. Bundy, the couple had been told to leave the ranch after a brief visit in which it was discovered their thinking did not align with that of family members and their militia supporters.
Analysts were careful to delineate a difference between citizen militia soldiers and sovereign citizen adherents, saying the people from the sovereignty movement are expected to continue at the pace of about 4 violent incidents per year. Militiamen, on the other hand, they predict will begin to ramp up violence at a much brisker pace.
