Former Armed Occupier of Wildlife Refuge Offers to Act As Mediator

One of the armed occupiers of the weeks-old occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon is offering to help convince the remaining four militants to leave the site, the Oregonian reports. 

Scott Willingham, who just weeks ago was armed with an AR-15 rifle and camouflage vest at the front gate of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, wants to serve as mediator between the FBI and the four remaining occupiers.

“At this point in time, all anybody should care about is trying to help the community get past it,” Willingham, 48, said.

The Colorado resident left the refuge more than a week ago, when law enforcement arrested occupation leaders and killed one of them during a confrontation at a roadblock outside of the refuge.
