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!
Check his/her personal page. VIVA BUSH.
Supporting Bush is proof-positive that CBB is a Nazi!
I like the idea. Mexico has been conducting an undeclared war on us with the intention of regain their former lands. They are using their only real weapon. Its time to secure our borders from the constant attack. In my opinion, another Mexican war would be a good thing.
It does, but it will gladly stoop to using Clinton style tactics to discredit the Minutemen.
And you know this how?
It knows nothing. Like the other, it will lie to discredit the MM.
I support President Bush, just not on immigration. I was talking about the corrupt grinning President of Mexico. I think you already knew that.
In fact, I worked hard to get President Bush elected. I just don't think we should allow ILLEGALS to break OUR LAWS which they are doing on a daily basis.
I guess I could try to pick and choose which laws I want to follow but I would be thrown in jail. They break laws everyday of the week just by being here ILLEGALLY!
Our government won't protect us on this one...what's a citizen supposed to do?
Apparently just being in the same state is enough to condemn them with "association". It's a ridiculous point. And Ben, they are in the same state because that is where the illegals cross (shaking head), you're gonna have to try harder, that argument won't wash.
Do you have Viva Bush on your profile page.
You have a credibility problem.
So does tom tancredo, illegal labor helped remodel his basement with an overhead projector and terraced seating.
If he was true to his rhetoric he would get a sledge hammer and destroy that impure structure, but he won't. He like all the rest of us is looking for the best quality at the best prices when buying goods and services.
Now I'm going to get attacked as being some open borders zealot, but I'm not. I don't believe in milatarized borders, but do beleive in documenting these people who want to work building structures and pick and process food in the US which benefits us all, and us the other resources in going after the real bad guys.
If I was in Arizona I would have voted for Prop. 200, what I'm not for is demonizing hard working people and small business people trying to get there share of the American dream.
You are making absolutely no sense whatsoever. I have said nothing about anyone supporting President Bush. I think you have a comprehension problem
Yep. It's just more evidence at its dishonesty.
BTW, Foote is in Texas. So not only is it dishonest, it's wrong.
Of course you know that all these goof-balls were previously in Texas together. Texas ran them off so now they are in Arizona together.
Ok, was just shaking my head before, now laughing out loud. Thanks for the humorous morning.
How about if you just trot back under your bridge, Mr. Troll? Your propaganda is so thin we can see your agenda through it.
I happen to be a "small business" and I don't hire ILLEGALS. I pay my employees salaries and benefits and don't expect the taxpayers to subsidize them in order to produce so-called cheap goods. They aren't cheap once you add in all the benefits paid for by HARD WORKING LEGAL AMERICAN CITIZENS. These employers should be FORCED to pay for their benefits and see how many ILLEGALS they employ.
Post 32 shows more dishonesty.
It's been proven many times over on this web site that Tancredo did not hire illegal aliens, but these folks can't help but drag up old rumors and attempt to make them true.
Yes, he is laughable. Most people that follow the border issue know that Nethercott kicked Foote off his ranch last year and they no longer associate and Foote is back in Texas. It was widely discussed here on FR.
Yes, I laugh also, when these idiots continue to post lies and confirm, for all to see, their dishonesty.

"Imagine that! And I thought they (the militia) said they were just going to inform the Boarder Patrol about illegal entrants."
It's people like you who have caused the problem in the first place. When the immigration law is not enforced, it leads to an invasion of illegals who defy the law, which in turn leads to lawlessness on the part of our own citizens. For example, Why should I have a drivers license when illegals don't have them and would get forged ones even if the law were changed?
So, the Minutemen come and raise a stink, legally, to draw attention to the problem, and you complain about citizen's making a legitimate cry for help. On the other hand, people like you support an invasion of illegal thieves and gangbangers across the border and then are surprised when gangs of thieves and gangbangers take them on? Unbelievable.
Lawlessnes begats lawless ness. That's the whole point. The Minutemen are trying to avert the greater problem.
Hmmm. I didn't know that...thinking they were both one and the same. Thanks for pointing that out.
Uh you saw where I was for Prop. 200. I say cut down on all welfare, for everybody.
And contrary to your demonization of the small business people who are building buildings and tarring roofs in 100 degree heat, that they are rubbing their hands together going "muuuaaaaaah, I'm going to screw the taxpayer", I think there main objective is to complete their contract and have reliable workers to get the job done.
That must be the epitomie of evil to you, IMO.
I don't have an agenda and really didn't know they were different groups until it was pointed out to me. Thanks.
I'm not demonizing anyone. I just happen to think ILLEGALS and the people who employ them are suppose to OBEY OUR LAWS. Who the hell do you think built buildings and tarred roofs in 100 degree heat BEFORE we allowed ILLEGALS TO BREAK OUR LAWS?!
JMO, neathercott's group and the minutemen, probably have something akin to what the demos and the aclu have.
The aclu is "independent" yada, yada, yada, but are really another arm of the democrat party.
Yes, as I sit here in the Catskill Mountains of New York State, it is people like me who have not issued an order for the Boarder Patrol to do its job, and of causing tens of thousands of illegal immigrants to come flooding across our boarders looking for a better way of life.
Perhaps you would like to lay death and orignal sin upon my shoulder's also?
Americans, and immigrants, but most Americans don't want those jobs now.
Also remember it was immigrants who filled up the steel mills in the 20th century.
I guess Carnegie was an evil business owner to you.
