RE: Facts and Events in the Hammond Case
Dear Sheriff Ward,
Thank you for the opportunity to present this information. We testify that two or more witnesses have verified each facts and events in this document. It is our hope that you will research each point of this document independently and determine for yourself if the Hammonds have been the subjects of extreme, vindictive behavior by multiple federal agencies.
The Hammonds are good people that carve their living out of the land they live on, much like the Native Americans and early pioneers. Their experience, practical use and care for the land has brought them at odds with those that harbor the ideology, that it is a moral obligation to restrict man from the use of the land and resources.
We respect that no two people think the same and there are many opinions of how things should be accomplished. However, when one positions themself in government to force others to live the way they believe, a serious line has been crossed.
It is our solemn belief that multiple federal employees are using their position in government to remove the Hammonds from the land to set a precedent for the removal of other land users. We declare that the Hammonds are not “Terrorists”. They have not and would not hurt those around them. They are kind and generous people that love their neighbors. They have committed no crime and must not be punished further for these absurd accusations.
As the County Sheriff, you have taken an oath of office to defend against foreign and domestic threats. You hold the responsibility to insure the Hammonds are protected from those that will continue to use government to force their personal beliefs upon others.
