    IMO, this went on for far too long. The Protesters, who were not residents of Oregon, wanted a confrontation, they got one, one died, and the rest will be in prison.

    One person is dead and eight others, including Oregon occupation leader Ammon Bundy, were detained following a violent confrontation with the FBI and state police Tuesday night.

    It all began with a traffic stop while Bundy and some of his followers were en route to a community meeting at a John Day senior center, about 70 miles north of Burns.

    Shots were fired after FBI agents, Oregon State troopers and other law enforcement agencies made the stop on US Highway 395.

    Ammon Bundy, Ryan Bundy, Brian Cavalier, Shawna Cox and Ryan W. Payne were arrested during the stop. They were booked into the Multnomah County jail early Wednesday morning.

    Joseph Donald O'Shaughnessy and online talk-show radio host Peter Santilli were arrested in Burns. Jon Ritzheimer was arrested after surrendering to authorities in his home state of Arizona.
