Malheur militants harassed deputies

The sheriff of Harney County, Oregon, was contending with armed militants for months before they illegally occupied a national wildlife refuge in January. Sheriff Dave Ward was in Spokane Tuesday at the invitation of the FBI to speak to law enforcement officials about his experiences during the takeover. After his presentation, Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich interviewed Ward for his weekly podcast on Spokane Talks Online. Knezovich said he’s impressed at how the Oregon sheriff – on the job for less than a year – handled the standoff and the attention of the nation. “He’s an individual who really stood his ground,” Knezovich said. “He’s won my respect”/Nina Culver, SR.
