This another predictable case of the Police investigating the Police and finding the Police did no wrong... according to the Police. The Idaho Attorney General has decided the Deputies, who killed Jack Yantis, did no wrong and therefor will not face charges.
Jack Yantis was murdered. But since the killers, Cody Roland and Brian Wood, were members of Law Imposement, and of the Vast Majority, they get away with killing an innocent rancher who was trying to do the right thing.
However, Mr. Yantis committed a cardinal sin. He bore arms in the presence of the Gang. He wasn't groveling. He wasn't showing deference. He didn't render obeisance. Immediately after killing Jack Yantis, one of the killers turned his weapon on Donna Yantis and threatened her life, forced her to the ground, and put her in handcuffs. She soon thereafter suffered a heart attack.

Dispatcher to concerned citizen, "We've got that taken care of." Yeah you did. You had more members of The Gang coming to make sure the murderers had cover.
Listen to the other audio testimony from eye witnesses at the link also.

Deputy Brian Wood
Deputy Cody Roland
As to whether Jack Yantis fired his weapon, and neither deputy is sure about it, someone HAD TO clear that rifle BEFORE it was entered into evidence. Someone KNOWS if the rifle was fired or not. Someone picked up that rifle, worked the bolt, and emptied the chamber. Either a loaded round came out, or a spent piece of brass came out. The State Police, conducting the interviews, already KNOW.
Members of the Vast Majority, are you so daft, obtuse, contemptuous of the people you "serve" as to think you'll get away with this in perpetuity? Do you realize that when you cover for murderers in your own ranks, you are saying, "I am he and he is me." ?
Do you have any idea what you're doing? Do you realize your veil of credibility, stretched thin as onion paper over the last thirty years, has a ten thousand holes in it?
