MADISONVILLE, Tenn. A Sweetwater man was sentenced to 60 days in jail for trying to arrest a Monroe County grand jury foreman who refused to indict President Obama on treason charges.
. . .
The Navy veteran on April 1 tried to make a citizen's arrest on the grand jury foreman,

Somebody cared! Somebody tried to do something! Okay maybe he is sorta nutty but he is our kind of nutty.
You don’t want that kind of nutty on your side. Ever.
Look at this charge!
“Inciting a riot by gathering a reported five supporters to video the arrest attempt.”
The Justice Department would be responsible for a treason trial. Who is this yutz who thinks he can even be foreman?
Barney Fife tried that once or twice, if I recall...
How weird. And what the heck was this guy supposed to do? I guess if he said, “Ok the President should be arrested for Treason” he would have been fine and the guy wouldn’t have arrested him. Sometimes I find it very amazing how people get themselves into these situations. I can’t for the life of me think of any scenario that would result in me going to jail. I just can’t see the average person making a citizen’s arrest because they don’t claim that the President should be arrested for treason. Perhaps having a conversation about it should have been all that was necessary. VERY STRANGE STORY.
Sounds like a bogus charge to me.
It was dismissed before the trial but scarey how they will add something like that onto what was described as a 'peaceful' intervention. I mean, don't you have to have a riot before you get charged with inciting a riot?
Barney Fife tried that once or twice, if I recall...
That was Gomer. Barney was the deputy.
I thought Barney had been suspended or something...
...but now that my auditory memory is playing back the VOICE in which the words were spoken, I think you are correct.
It’s DEFINITELY Gomer’s voice, not barney’s, that has been ‘seared, SEARED’ into my memory saying those words.
I have that scene to heavily embedded in my brain cells. Gomer shouting ‘citizens arrest’ ‘citizens arrest’!
The Sheriff should arrest the Judge and the foreman and free the citizen.
What's with this "our" stuff?
You gotta a mouse in your pocket or something?
Retired Navy Officer Fitzpatrick’s only mistake was the ill-advised citizens arrest. He should have simply filed a Federal Lawsuit for the Grand Jury Foreman’s refusal to accept his criminal information for indictment of BO.
Mr. Duncan should be made aware of these facts about the State of Tennessee as well.
In Darren Huffs interview with Arlen Williams, he stated that an FBI agent came to his home in Georgia and gave him the clear impression that what he planned to do in Monroe County, Tennessee on 4-20-10 was lawful. If the FBI agent considered what Mr. Huff was doing was a threat to the safety of the people of Monroe County, he had a legal obligation to advise Mr. Huff accordingly.
By secretly moving a 200+ man SWAT Team into Monroe County to police 20 peaceful protesters, the Tennessee authorities did, in fact, create a threat to everyone in Monroe County and that area of Tennessee.
I am certainly thankful that I never have to travel on 1-75 between Chattanooga and Knoxville, Pigeon Forge or Gatlinburg.
According to recent crime reports, Tennessee is one of the most dangerous States in America. Nashville is now the 7th most dangerous city in America and Memphis is the number one most dangerous city in America
Monroe County, TN is famous for corruption allegations.
Just recently, the Monroe County Election Commission chairman Jim Miller, was found murdered in the trunk of a burning car.
Who was the chief suspect?
Why Monroe County Sheriffs Capt. Kenny Hope, of course.
The Sheriff was cleared by the local district attorney. Then the DA went before a judge and tried to hide the autopsy report from the public
What is even more interesting in this murder case, is the Monroe Sheriff who was cleared in the murder, has been fired.
A Monroe County sheriffs deputy who was cleared in a murder investigation in July has been fired over an unrelated incident.
The paper referred to a police report that said Hope was found standing in Dyer Street holding a club with the smell of alcohol on him.
Police had responded to a report of a man with a gun.
You cant make this stuff up folks. It should be a reality TV show.
Tennessee is one of the most Dangerous States in America. Nashville is the 7th Most Dangerous City in America and Memphis is the Most Dangerous City in America.
Tennessee is a very dangerous place for Patriots who believe in the Constitution.
Is that John Kerry SEARED, or just regular?
My gggg maternal grandfather use to practically run Sweetwater...he migrated from Pennsylvania. He was pro Union during the invasion from the North. His last name was Owen, my fathers given name. My father was no Yankee.
One of his daughters ran away and married my ggg grandfather..who joined the 3rd Tennessee Cavalry.
Check the lineage of the jury and judge..
wimps without winnies strike again.
Only mistake? That’s a lot like saying that Jeffery Dahmer’s only mistake was not cleaning his plate. Trying to arrest the jury foreman wasn’t a simple mistake, or error in judgement, it was a billboard announcing this guy’s lack of sanity to the world.
