    I'll be very interested to see if any real charges stem from this. :(

    So what is the big crime here anyway? So they wore cammies and owned guns and ammo. Big deal. That describes half the people in my state. Last I checked, it wasn't illegal to learn survival skills and target practice. Of course, Mr. president Obeyme might feel "threatened" and consider these folks terrorists. Good grief.

    Thanks for the tip Sag. I had not thought of linking the two. It is too early to make a formal connection between the two ... oh, but you must believe the two are linked else you would not be so defensive. :laugh:

    The administration flexing it's muscle for future use.
    If they were involved in a crime.. then what is it? I haven't read of any crime they are charging them with.

    Yes, they are kooks.. but that is not a crime.

    Exactly. I THOUGHT people were innocent until proven guilty, not guilty until proven innocent.

    It it was a crime to be weird, all the tree huggers, PETA people, and geeks would be arrested by now.

    That is true. The 7 arrested are innocent until proven guilty. Being arrested does not mean guilty but it does mean suspicion of a crime is present. Arrested does not mean convicted.

    Depends on what they have done with their "weirdness."

    Ok, THAT article gives more info than the others I had read. Killing innocent law enforcement officers goes way beyond target practice and learning survival skills, or even defending your home from intruders. It's the first I've read of any actual crime or planned crime. Thank you for providing that, Crabby.
