Defense lawyers waive closing arguments, Bunkerville retrial heads to jury. We’re not sure if we side with the defendants or not, regardless they deserve a fair and unbiased trial. It appears to us that U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro is trying to throw this trial in favor of Federal prosecutors. Of course she’s a (guess what?) Obama appointee.

Perez, Lovelien’s lawyer, and the rest of the defense attorneys have complained that U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro has improperly denied the four men a fair trial. The defense couldn’t tell jurors why defendants joined the Bundy Ranch protest, they couldn’t mention the legality of openly carrying firearms in Nevada, and they couldn’t say anything about how joining a militia was legal. They were also prevented from arguments mentioning First or Second Amendment rights. Perez said it was nearly impossible for the defendants to offer meaningful arguments in the trial.

If the feds have to rig the game so blatantly in their own favor then I am pretty sure I side with the defense.
