Remember the whole Cliven Bundy thing in Nevada? There was a sequel of sorts over in nearby Utah, in which dozens of protesters, some armed, drove their ATVs through Recapture Canyon, a section of land closed off to vehicles by the Bureau of Land Management due to evidence of prehistoric remains. San Juan County Commissioner Phil Lyman, a local political leader, organized the protest, though he claimed he did so as a “private citizen.”
