    Time Magazine warned of a growing threat to cops nationwide in September 2010. The nationally renowned publication argued that sinister individuals would launch targeted attacks against police officers and even ambush them in their patrol cars. Time alerted readers that these groups and individuals have a disturbing hatred of cops and that there was a real threat of “lone-wolf” attacks.

    Who are these groups that present such a threat to police? Right-wing militias, according to Time.

    Since the article’s publication, there have hardly been any reported cases of violence stemming from individuals connected to the militia movement. There is one possible case from June of this year, but it could not be determined whether the two killers in the Las Vegas shooting spree had any connections with militia groups.

    Meanwhile, the suspected gunman behind the Saturday ambush of two New York City police officers was certainly not a right-wing militant. Ismaaiyl Brinsley was reportedly a member of the notorious prison gang, the Black Guerrilla Family, which espouses a mix of black nationalism and Marxism. The gang declared “open season” on NYPD officers earlier in December following the non-indictment of the officer involved in the death of Eric Garner.

    A thorough search of Time’s archive produced no stories about the threat that communists, black nationalists or prison gangs pose to police.

    I support the militia movement and, in my interaction with them, have found them, in general, to be great supporters of the police, not a threat to them.

    Well, I guess when you are trying to build a huge domestic military force like this government is you need a huge domestic enemy to justify it.

    Or at least get the majority of the population to believe there is a huge domestic enemy out there that justifies it.

    I suppose that's why . . . "The Southern Poverty Law Center regularly conducts in-person training sessions for local, state and federal law enforcement officers by request. We focus on the history, background, leaders and activities of far-right extremists in the United States."

    http://www.splcenter.org/what-we-do/hate-and-extremism/law-enforcement/law-enforcement-training

    And why FEMA is training "
    Law Enforcement personnel and Firefighters that America's Founding Fathers were Terrorists and that modern-day Bible believing Christians and Patriots are the "real" enemy!"

    when you mention the Milita - are you talking about the authorized units of the State/Commonwealth military (which includes the National Guard and State Guards ) or are you referring to Non-government militias?

    Both non-government militias and local militias headed by the county sheriff.

    Because of the aptly named "Dick Act", I don't consider the NG a militia, but a localized branch of the federal military.

    IMHO non-government militias would be headed by the county sheriff.
    Please provide a link for the dick act.
    The NG is part of the State Militia
