Border Militia: We'll Shut Down the Border with Machine Guns
Casey Nethercott is the leader of a militia group dubbed the Arizona Guard and said during a TV interview broadcast on Friday, "When this Minuteman thing is over, if it doesn't work, we're going to come out here and close the border with machine guns."
KVOA TV-4 in Tucson carried a report on Friday by reporter Nancy Perla that toured the group's compound that sits along the Arizona/Mexico border near Douglas, Arizona. The camera showed two older model American made SUV's, both painted black, that Nethercott claims are "armored vehicles" with "quarter-inch steel in them." Pointing again to the vehicles, Nethercott continued, "You'll get killed without them, here's been so many shootouts out here."
The camera then shows a concrete block wall riddled with bullet holes that Nethercott says came from drug smugglers. The report titled "Mimicman Projects" by KVOA calls them copy cats and says the project could begin on July 4, though Nethercott would release no details.
The Minuteman Project stated through Chris Simcox, who is an organizer for the project, that they don't support a violent solution. "I think anytime you go to that length to take the law into your own hands, you're asking for trouble," Simcox told KVOA.
The armed militia supports the Minuteman Project, but says that if they fail to close the border to illegal border crossers, his group will step in and be heavily armed to do the job.
Guys, here is a wonderful example of a man, Casey Nethercott, who is one thread away from snapping and causing an international incident. Scary.
If a parade of uninvited street people walk through your front door, would you defend yourself?
You do realize this has absolutely no association with the Minuteman project right? I know you've called the Minutemen MMK so it appears you are associating the two together. They are on totally opposite sides of the fence and I know you know that. I just wonder if you will admit it.
Uh oh, this is going to get ugly.
Imagine that! And I thought they (the militia) said they were just going to inform the Boarder Patrol about illegal entrants.
This is getting interesting.
You be bad.
They are joined at the hip and co-ordinate their activities.
the left has more experience in using the media to exploit an international incident than these guys realize.
the left also controls most of the print and tv news.
And you know this how? Any proof or pure conjecture?
(If what I just wrote makes you sad or angry,
Well this is one way to finally get the US military on our border.
Unless you have an agenda, you must recognize that this "militia" is a different set of people from the Minute Men.
If the MM Project was not working I might grudgingly agree with the militia concept. But it IS working and needs to be expanded, without interference from potential troublemakers.
Foote is in Arizona also. They are all there. Do you think it is a co-incidence?
Can't we just post some 'Beware of Militia' signs at the border and send them some ammo?
Your agenda is showing.
"Well this is one way to finally get the US military on our border."
What a nice thought.....thank you!
