Gerald (Jerry) Keller, 67 of Prineville Oregon was arrested on April 8, 2010 for voicing his (first amendment) concerns to a government (our) employee regarding the purchase of an H-1 Hummer for the BLM (Bureau of Land Management). 

On the morning of March 11, 2010, Jerry Keller and wife Brenda were returning home in their vehicle when they witnessed a yellow H-1 Hummer approaching the roadway.

Jerry felt it was his duty to let the approaching driver of the H-1 Hummer know that he didn’t agree with his tax-revenue being used to purchase such lavish vehicles for the BLM.
