Ammon Bundy tells judge he’s miserable in jail

BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) - Anti-government activist Ammon Bundy is telling a judge he's miserable in jail causing his supporters to go to harass the judge outside his home.

Judge David Manweiler arrested Bundy on Monday on trespassing and failure to appear charges when Bundy refused to wear a facemask at his hearing.

Protestors then went to Manweiler's home, shouted obscenities and wrote "Tyrant" and "Mask hole" in chalk.

They told a neighbor they were "just getting started" and would be back.

He told a judge Tuesday being in jail is making it hard to defend himself.

His trial is now set for May 10.

  1. Ammon Bundy took a Small Business Administration loan, $530,000., to support his vehicle maintenance here in Phoenix Arizona.
    Thought he was anti government?

    1. I guess not when it comes to $530,000 dollars. I know Judge Manweiler and he is a fair and decent Judge. He certainly doesn’t deserve having this guy’s fan club protesting at his residence. Presently there is a Covid-19 surge in Boise Idaho and the court asks that you wear a mask. Then wear the mask. Your rights should be secondary to the physical safety of others in or around your presence. Bundy, go somewhere else to get your free publicity. Boise doesn’t need you or your political anti-government bull. You can’t be that anti-government if you’re willing to take a government loan out!!!
