Cliven Bundy supporters were planning to put women on the front lines in case the federal officers started shooting, Former Arizona Sheriff Richard Mack said Monday on Fox News’ “The Real Story.”
“We were actually strategizing to put all the women up at the front,” he said. “If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
Mack and other organizers, reportedly armed, traveled to Nevada to support Bundy during his dispute with the Bureau of Land Management, which had seized hundreds of his cows grazing on Nevada-owned land. The standoff drew hundreds of states’ rights protesters, but ended peacefully Saturday when the BLM released the cattle to Bundy.
