Funny, the lamestream media ran the story right after talking about Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Express -- no subtext there, right?
A wire service reports a whopping three (3!) arrests. Some "militia!" There are hints of "gun charges," whatever that might mean. The ever-reliable Telegraph(UK) shows a pic of a guy in a dark uniform with a slung AR-15ish-looking rifle -- no, wait, that's a Michigan State Trooper. Looks like someone in Chicago got nipped, too.
Media-noise aside, the targeted individuals appear to be members of a Christian militia called "Hutaree" and it appears that when they rang up the Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia to share the news, the reply was along the general lines of "and you are...?" SMVM has their own news release posted on their top page, which may point to a little more info than the LSM is sharin'; looks like there may be more who-why-how forthcoming later today, likely elsewhere.
I predict scare headlines on the front pages -- and the real story, if it shows up at all, buried in the back pages. Somebody got 'em a full-auto without touchin' all the bases? Someone made threats? Dunno; we'll find out, though it may take diggin'.
Let me just say that I disapprove of threats. It's not good tactics.
Seems like old times. Canaries, coal mines, overreaction and shiny, shiny jackboots; funny, he don't look like Mr. Clinton.
