Sea lawyers and militia

February 3, 2016

You can take a cruise and learn how to avoid taxes. Don’t call those fraudsters sea lawyers, lest you be haunted by the shades of those insulted.

This article explains the low-key and so far successful approach the government has taken toward the Bundy militia, now better regulated than it was before. I liked this:

It used to be hard to prove what defendants agreed to do: You had to infer it from their actions, or find a snitch to repeat their conversations, or wiretap them. But this is 2016, and we arrange our affairs in the open. The government’s 31-page affidavit in support of the complaint against the eight occupiers is chock-full of their own words: statements in press interviews, statements in videos posted to YouTube, statements in widely distributed emails. It’s enough to make a defense attorney weep.
