BURNS, OR -- Despite claims of peaceful protests by those involved in the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, some in Harney County say they are now scared to speak out against the militia because of intimidation tactics employed by the anti-government groups.

 

KBND News spoke with one Burns-area man who refused a recorded interview for fear of further retribution. He tells us he was targeted by extremists after he tried to organize a unified community effort. He says they slowly drove by his house and yelled at him and his family. Law enforcement officers and their families have reported similar drive-by "visits."

 
Several churches have joined together to host candlelight vigils in support of a peaceful resolution, and others are providing meals to law enforcement at the refuge.
