Law enforcement agencies move against Sovereign Citizen movement in Fairbanks:

Five people, including militia activist Schaeffer Cox, were arrested Thursday in the Fairbanks area for allegedly conspiring to kill multiple Alaska State Troopers and a federal judge.

The group had stockpiled weapons and conducted surveillance on the homes of two troopers, according to Alaska State Troopers. Some of the weapons known to be in the cache are prohibited by state or federal law, according to troopers.

No one tell Rep. Peter King, or he’ll have to haul Glenn Beck up to Capitol Hill to defend the actions of all white people. (H/T Dave Roberts for the joke).

    Oh – hah, I see, I thought for a second this was the Dispatches blog. Well, on this blog a post like this is not as surprising, then, as you are not aquainted with the corruption and evil that authority is often being used to hide these days.

    Now white, black or blue, that is not the factor here. I’m also not saying that the government agents “deserved” death, or that the complaints were sure to be justified even. At all.

    But you have to ask yourself: If the judges and cops DID do something very very wrong like raping or murdering innocent people or knowingly helping to torture or enslave people, stealing very large amounts of stuff for no good reason, or knowingly imprisoning innocent people for a very long time or equivalently ruining their lives, seize political power undemocratically (so tyranny, look the word was not invented by nutcases okay, it has legitimate meaning).

    (like by helping plutocrats with secret allonges type stuff to enslave us all economically, refusing to prosecute torture cases, allowing the government to engage in fake trials, knowingly sentencing probably innocent people to death or ordering their execution or preventing them from defending themselves, killing people by causing poverty (also sort of semi enslavement and imprisonment), framing people on e.g. drug charges basically for fun, I’m sure people up to speed on this stuff can think of dozens of examples if they take a minute).

    Then what? We know that things like framing on drug charges and violence and murder against innocents is not just a result of a few bad cops. If it was, then when it happened other cops would denounce the cops that did it. Instead they usually stand behind them. There are deep, deep problems with the laws and their enforcement, so that is often not a useful recourse to obtain justice.

    I’m saying I’m not taking sides on this one until I know some more details.

    There is a fair chance that the cops and judge involved have been committing heinous crimes for decades, victimizing dozens, a thousand, or by leveraging politics, huge numbers of people.

    You should at least ask yourself: if that IS true, what would would be the best, effective, way to get justice, that you could actually do?

    I hope and think there are plenty better ways than murder. But we certainly have a lot of examples where the government themselves thinks it is the right way, so it is idiotic to say it is off the table altogether.

    Let’s not take sides, but let me remind you just for a moment that the whole system is evil and corrupt and that every judge, police officer and other agents of the system is likely to have personally oppressed thousands of people for decades in an organized attempt to enslave the entirety of the population for their own nefarious purposes.

    But let’s not take sides.

    As a Fairbanksan, I’m glad this happened. Good riddance, scum.

    Etienne, my thoughts exactly – I mean, those subhuman traitors have veins full of the exact blood Jefferson said was needed to water the Tree of Liberty (and not the Patriots part), but taking sides would be unseemly. So I’m glad everyone is skirting that pitfall so far.
