Anti-Government Militia Continues Oregon Occupation

Hosted by

For three days, armed protesters have been occupying a building on the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Southeast Oregon. They've set up a roadblock and stationed armed guards in a tower used to spot wildfires on the federal preserve. The local sheriff says he doesn't plan to take action. The FBI is "monitoring" the situation. We hear about what's turning into a crisis for law enforcement from John Sepulvado, who is covering the story for Oregon Public Broadcasting, and Heidi Beirick, intelligence project director at the Southern Poverty Law Center.
