BLM Seizes Cattle in Nevada

by Maitreg
August 4, 2001

If you haven't heard, the U.S. Constitution apparently doesn't apply to the Bureau of Land Management.

4th Amendment

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

See the Bill of Rights.

This means that no person, property, food, drink, or animal my be seized/arrested without a court-issued warrant explicitly naming each item that is to be seized.  Apparently, the folks at the BLM were not informed about this important document back in grammar school, like the rest of us.

In a demonstration of the federal government's unyielding tyranny, the BLM accused private ranchers in Nevada of allowing hundreds of cows to graze on illegal federal property.  Maybe they were, maybe not.  "Innocent until proven guilty", right?  That's what the local sheriff's department thought when they informed the BLM they wouldn't be allowed to seize the cows without a legal warrant.  The BLM then contacted a U.S. Attorney's Office who then informed the Nevada State Attorney General that the local authorities would be in violation of federal law, without naming the laws, if they interfered with the seizure.  The State Attorney General then warned the sheriff's office to back off and allow the BLM to conduct the illegal seizure.

This is a shocking display of disregard for the nation's laws, and shows a strong resemblance to the illegal arrest of Elian Gonzalez.  Every year, more and more of our rights explicitly stated in the Constitution are being eroded, and until people wake up and say "ENOUGH" they will continue to watch their freedoms be flushed down the toilet.
