Ryan Bundy, a protester who helped lead the Oregon militia standoff, attempted to escape jail with a rope made of bedsheets, federal prosecutors alleged in court on Monday.
Hole on, hold on, do they KNOW he was planning to use the sheets to escape?
In a pretrial hearing on Monday in court in Portland, federal officials accused Ryan of attempting to escape Multnomah county jail, disclosing that deputies found the inmate on 8 April with torn sheets braided together under his mattress, the Oregonian reported.
Prosecutors said that deputies also found two strips of torn sheets, extra pillowcases, towels and unauthorized food containers.
Bundy responded that he was a “rancher trying to practice braiding rope”, adding: “It’s self-serving speculation and simply not true, your honor,” according to Oregon Public Broadcasting.
See? He had simply made the 12 to 15 feet of braided bed sheets to pass the time.
After all they won't even let him have his guns.
Of course one could hardly blame Bundy for wanting to make a break for it.
After all one of his boys may soon be facing a long ass prison sentence.

Ryan Payne, who led tactical training for the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation and is accused of organizing "armed protection'' in a 2014 standoff with federal officers in Nevada, faces a recommended 12 years in prison under plea deals fashioned in both states.
On Tuesday, Payne, 32, entered a guilty plea to the federal charge of conspiracy in Oregon.
Damn, twelve years is an awful long time to go without fondling your shiny metal penis extenders.
On the other hand if Ryan Buncy gets a similar sentence just think how long he will have to work on that new rope?
