USDA Forest Service, the Sheriff’s Office, and the BLM all had a meeting without informing the public. They all got together and decided without asking the people’s opinion on it, they decided to make that area of LaVoy’s Memorial off limit to the public. Period. Anybody who goes up there will either be harassed, will get a $5000 dollar fine, or possibly imprisoned. According to the locals.
Why the Gov’t Assasinated LaVoy Finicum!! ALL you need to Know – in his own words.
Constitution for the united States of America — Article 1, Section 8, clause 17:
The Congress shall have power… To exercise exclusive legislation in all cases whatsoever, over such district (not exceeding ten miles square) as may, by cession of particular State, and the acceptance of Congress, and to exercise like authority over all places purchased by the consent of the legislature of the State in which the same shall be, for the erection of forts, magazines, arsenals, dock yards, and other needful buildings;
I.e., the power of Congress is limited to over the “ten miles square” District of Columbia (Washington, D.C.) and the territories and needful things purchased by the United States.
