So they're asking for clemency from a government they're protesting. The same government that they refused to pay for using federal land for their cattle despite the taxation rate being less than a fifth of what a private landowner would charge. Federal Land that was set aside, in part to protect it from people with poor land management and planning skills. Poor planning skills such as the inability to plan for food for an extended camping trip. Poor planning that has lead to them to ask for food donations, shipped to them by US Mail, from the same government they're protesting yet seeking clemency from.
These guys are complete hypocrites.
