Vigilante Violence Fears High In Ariz. (barfer)
KPHO ^ | April 16, 2010 | KPHO

Posted on 04/17/2010 10:03:11 AM PDT by AuntB

PHOENIX -- Federal law enforcement officers have been sent to Arizona as fears surface of possible vigilante violence, experts said.

Mid-April is a time of year law enforcement officers across the country, and in Arizona, are on high alert.

"It's a time at which not only the Anti-Defamation League, but law enforcement, and I mean law enforcement at all levels -- local, state and federal -- are geared up,” said Bill Straus, the Arizona Regional Director for the Anti-Defamation League.

The reason: there have been serious attacks on Americans by their fellow citizens during April.

April 19 is the anniversary of the deadly fire at David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas, in 1993.

April 19 is also the anniversary of the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.

The next day, April 20, is the anniversary of the 1999 Columbine high school shootings in Colorado.

"Adolph Hitler's birthday falls in this month,” said Straus about why there are so many incidents in April. He said racist groups often plot attacks to “celebrate” the day.

Straus said he is even more concerned about violent plots this year.

“The anti-government movement has been building and expanding since the election of President Obama,” said Straus.

Straus said there has been a spike in anti-government groups, including groups willing to commit violent acts.

"The militia movement seems to have picked up some steam as of late,” said Strauss. "These people are very frustrated. They are frustrated to the point they are dressing up in military garb, donning weapons and going on training runs."

The Southern Poverty Law Center recently released a report noting the spike in anti-government groups.

Their Web site lists 10 in Arizona for 2009. In 2008, there were six.

"Being along the border and having the immigration issue is a huge catalyst for these kind of things, unfortunately,” said Jaime Molera, a political consultant.

He said the illegal immigration issue often draws extremists to Arizona. He said the groups often use illegal immigration as a cover for racist beliefs.

"They say they want to stop any people from coming into your country, when what you want is to kick out anyone that may that be of a different skin color or maybe religious preference. Those are the kinds of things that mask what the real underlying hate it is,” said Molera.

Law enforcement won't say if anti-government groups are planning attacks like we've seen in the past, but with their numbers rising, Straus worries it's only a matter of time before one takes action.

"I can remember very days in the last few years where I don't go to sleep at night worried about what tomorrow's newspaper is going to tell me,” he said.

Americans killed from a Mexican embassy...

Arizona rancher murdered by illegal aliens on his own land...

A bomb thrown into our embassy in Mexico...

BUT they're sending our forces to PROTECT aliens against US citizens that they 'fear' may turn to vigilantism.

Good. Let the illegals be scared. Maybe they will stop breaking our laws and leave the country. What about the fear of Americans face from illegal alien crime? Is that newsworthy?

If these people where just ordinary citizens, I would raise my hand and call for a medic to treat a delusional person in need of medical treatment, but these are law enforcement people, with guns pointed at citizens - be very, very careful.

Nobody should ever, ever, ever interview the EXTREME Christian-hating, America-destroying groups like the SPLC or the ADL (among others). Giving any credence or legitimacy to these groups is disgusting.

Do any other Arizonans know what the hell these morons are talking about? I live in Arizona (not in a KPHO news studio) and I have to call bull**** on this crap. This is just a bunch of leftwing psychobabble.

It makes no sense on the surface but if you dig deep the answer is there. The people in charge now hate liberty and love power. How a little minded useless creep like Obama gained access to The White House is is hard to comprehend to those with a clear mind. If you want to see hate it sits in The White House not the Tea Party.

Oh and you should have seen the yowls and wailing, heard practically around the world, on April 15th. Instead of covering the tea party or something else, all three stations opened the 10 pm news with leftist cries of “abuse” — we had some big raids on illegal alien shuttle bus companies that morning. I think each story went on for 5 or 10 minutes, showing poor whining illegal aliens and their fans being “tortured” (yeah, right, they were just arrested).

OMG, you called it!! I am fairly active around here and wt*, I have no clue what they are blithering about. It's more likely that the leftist groups are celebrating Stalin, Mao's, and Che's birthdays!!!

The left is frightened. They are dimly aware of what their misgovernment will bring down upon their head. Being in control the leftist coalition will up the ante as they realize their media speak is no longer an effective means of control.

I happen to love the month of April in the desert. It’s clear, cool but not too cold (down here in the south anyway), the jasmine and orange blossoms in our yard are so fragrant, the hiking/biking is perfect...

Little did I know when I went down to the border in 2006 that I was there to celebrate Hitler’s birthday.... wow, so glad the media enlightened me.

If the law won’t do their job and keep putting the backs of American citizens against the wall, the people will do it for them. You can only corner someone for so long and they will come out fighting. Especially when their family and friends are being killed by illegals.

Bill Straus has to be a despicable, hate-filled bastard...and he is stupid, without any sense of "dot connecting"....

...who was in charge during the '90's while all the "anger" was building up....yep,....the Clinton 'rats.

...who is in charge now?.....yep, the Clinton 'rats joined by Zer0 commies. The same old shiiteheads, sans Janet Reno...and she would be there if she was able.

The dots are easy to trace,

Obama and Clinton 'rats=chaos.

You should note that Jaime Molera is a white Spaniard who is a major supporter of McCain and Flake, the Amnesty Twins of Arizona.

This guy is a professional Mexican, albeit of the aristocratic type:

And he's making vague allegations that "this kind of thing" starts up?

A Spaniard Reconquista pretending to be a "victim" of the Evil Anglos. Get the silly Anglos to arrest themselves and soon, Beeg Men like himself will be back in power, collecting tribute from all the Peons.

Whatta laugh. Bob Krentz is dead and this peckerwood yaps about some sort of threat from WASP's?

Nauseating.

There is no doubt the left is not lovin’ Americans nor Israelis right now. They have a deep thirst for a blood sacrifice right now. If they can pull off another Waco or Ruby Ridge “law enforcement” mass murder, they will be setting the stage.

If I remember correctly the the deadly fire at David Koresh’s compound in Waco, Texas was at least partially the responsibility of the BATF and Janet Reno.

So maybe some of these Federal law enforcement officers ought to be sent to Washington, D.C. to the Justice Department to ensure there is no anti-government or racist incidences there.

“There is no doubt the left is not lovin’ Americans nor Israelis right now.”

Mark Levin made a point yesterday on his radio show that should be thought about!

The Obama administration has been dictating to Israel where they should build settlements for their citizens. Levin wondered what Hillary might say if an ambassador from Israel told US to stop building in Texas...because it used to belong to MEXICO (as far as the Mexicans are concerned). But as Mark said, it’s best NOT to give her or Obama any ideas!

Yes, being along the border, one can see how our government is not doing its job. People will do what it takes to protect themselves. The fact that Molera is spinning this into a violent anti-government movement is ludicrous, at best.

However, the MSM needs stories to marginalize the Tea Party movement and show it has violent elements within it.

Expect more of the same. These dolts are unrelenting -- in their message and their stupidity.

By all accounts Koresh was a little on the nutty side. Janet Reno is a full blown nut that should never have been in any authority to order armed tatics against anyone. The state of Texas should have been left alone to deal with that situation. It probably would have turned out better if that were the case.

This is the very definition of insanity on the part of our government. They don’t secure the border, then when citizens are victims of home invasion, robbery, and murder they send feds in to protect illegals from possible vigilante actions. Wait until a smuggler shoots at the feds while they are trying to protect them from ranchers. Clueless.

Thanks. I started it back when the US thought it needed the UN's permission to invade Iraq. I have kept it because it shows disdain for dems that want the US to follow International Law and other whims of the UN. It is now applicable with what is going on around the border, and with what der Fuhrer is doing.

I suppose some things are timeless, and I just happened to luck into one.

Exactly. And we all know what caused the lefties to put out garbage like this.

. 1. Sheriff Arpaio enforcing the law by breaking up the human smuggling and slavery rings here in Arizona.

2. The massive busts this week of the slave trading rings across the state by ALL law enforcement people.

3. The "immigration" bill currently awaiting Governor Brewer's signature.

Arizona finds itself in a bad financial situation right now. (Thank you Napolitano.) We're going to have to put solving Central and South America's poverty problems on hold for a while.

OF COURSE there’s been a rise in anti-govenment sentiment! The whole frickin’ country is now anti-govenment. Why? Because the government has become tyrannical. Their response? Become MORE tyrannical!

Morons. Unfortunately, dangerous morons, and ones that mean us ill.

Yes, and there was Isabel Garcia, Pima County Public Defender, defending the rights of the coyotes again.

It's amazing the idiocy of our county, having such a shyster on the payroll, when she moonlights as an advocate for illegal activity. They must be really afraid of her.
