BLM pulls away from thefts of cattle. Why?

The BLM says they’re pulling out because of concern for employees’ safety and for the public:

They’re apparently also releasing some of the cattle back to Bundy and his supporters.

Bundy is in the right, and in my opinion, they didn’t back down just over safety concerns but because they were losing the propaganda contest very big time. It was starting to get attention nationally and it was no doubt spilling into international attention.

This is an Internet victory too. So they may look again for ways to tamp down alternative media. They’re fighting a losing war in that venue.

There’s another reason they may have pulled back. It could very well be that the police forces they were sending up against these people were starting to rebel against being forced themselves to do something they hated doing, and sympathized with the Bundy cause and the protestors.
