When are the Congressional hearings about those dangerous Militia members?

April 3, 2010. Rebecca Cook | Reuters


Five people in the Fairbanks area were arrested Thursday by state and federal law enforcement on charges connected with an alleged plot to kidnap or kill state troopers and a Fairbanks judge, according to the Alaska State Troopers.

Francis "Schaeffer" Cox, Lonnie Vernon, Karen Vernon, Coleman Barney and Michael Anderson are accused of conspiring to commit murder, kidnapping, and arson, as well as weapons misconduct, hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence, according to trooper spokeswoman Megan Peters in a written statement late Thursday.

An investigation "revealed extensive plans to kidnap or kill Alaska state troopers and a Fairbanks judge," the statement said. The plans included "extensive surveillance" on the homes of two Fairbanks troopers, the statement said.

"Investigation also revealed that extensive surveillance on troopers in the Fairbanks area had occurred, specifically on the locations of the homes for two Alaska state troopers," the statement said. "Furthermore, Cox et. al. had acquired a large cache of weapons in order to carry out attacks against their targeted victims. Some of the weapons known to be in the cache are prohibited by state or federal law."

The meddling Feds never gave this group the time to "lock and reload".

Meanwhile in California they aren't too removed from burning crosses

  • [The sovereign citizen movement is characterized by a rejection of U.S. laws and taxes. In general, participants believe that federal, state and local statutes and laws do not apply to them.] from adn.com article


    Neither of these seem very 'tea party' to me. The second one looks more like WI than a TP group. The other......the article said nothing about Tea Party. I don't know exactly what is being implied here. The organizers of the CA meeting said they didn't know who the protesters were, so why the leap to it being Tea Party?

  • Probably just as soon, as they start hijacking planes into buildings, suicide bombing American embassies, getting busted in the planning stages of poisoning our water supplies, blowing up heavy traffic bridges, and of course this list can go on for quite a while.

  • So Carpy, do you agree with the Japanese Internment in WW2?


    I prefer to punish people who are proven to commit or plan violent or illegal acts not everyone who might have something in common with them.
