01/19/2022, 12:43 PM

PRESS RELEASE

Ranch Matters (RM) received the following PRESS RELEASE/STATEMENT from local PEOPLE’S RIGHTS Leader, BJ SOPER.

Soper issued the Press Release additionally to Central Oregon Daily News/KOHD and Deschutes County District Attorney, John Hummel.

Last week KOHD reported that Deschutes County Sheriff Shane Nelson agreed to speak to the Central Oregon Chapter of the People’s Rights group. The title of their story: “Deschutes Co Sheriff accepts invite to speak to controversial group.”

Sheriff Nelson spoke to the People’s Rights group last night and according to Mr. Soper “The event was uneventful and Sheriff Nelson addressed the group for nearly 1.5 hours. He took questions for quite some time at the end.

PEOPLE’S RIGHTS STATEMENT BELOW

“PEOPLE’S RIGHTS RESPONSE TO JOHN HUMMEL’S STATEMENT IN THE BEND BULLETIN 1/18/22:

Deschutes County District Attorney John Hummel’s public comment in the Bulletin article stating his hatred and vitriol for almost 4000 Central Oregon People’s Rights members (of which 2500 are constituents in Deschutes County), while quite repulsive coming from a public servant the words are not surprising. Mr. Hummel has never met with or held a conversation with the vast majority of our members and yet he is happy to use his elected position as a soap box to express his personal unsubstantiated opinions.

Again, this Is unremarkable considering his track record and efforts to be a “social warrior.’ Mr. Hummel’s statement, much like his oath to uphold the Oregon and US Constitution, carries little weight.”
