Ammon and Ryan Bundy are unhappy with their living conditions in jail.
You might remember these guys. They took over a national wildlife refuge headquarters for several weeks as part of an ongoing dispute with the federal government over some property issues.
They surrendered after a siege in Burns, Ore. They’re now awaiting trial. They want to prepare for their date in federal court and say they need Internet access in their jail cell. They don’t have it.
Cry … me … a … river — fellas.
They’re being held in Multnomah County, where Portland is located.
Jail officials say they can have IPads, but only if their lawyers preload information they can use.
There’s something strangely weird about these two clowns griping about lack of Internet access.
I surely don’t know this as fact, but something tells me that the Bundys — part of an extreme right-wing political movement — quite likely over the years have complained about prison becoming too much of a “country club” for bad guys. Don’t you think that sometime in their lives they griped about how “good” the criminals have it behind bars?
To hear these guys gripe about lack of Internet access in their jail cell just rings more than a tad bit hollow in my ears.
A lot of lockups these days have extensive libraries — with books in them — for inmates to use. My strong preference would be for these two clowns to quit griping about Internet access and start cracking open some law texts.
