Federal and state agents are searching a 30-square-mile swath of rugged Montana forest for a former militia leader following a shootout with sheriff's deputies, authorities said.

Given the government’s aggressive tactics in the last decade or so, I’ll give this guy the benefit of the doubt until I learn more about what is going on.
Quick! Send in Lon Horiuchi! /s
Only White men are dangerous,the Islamic savages have been “oppressed”.\s
Have the Feds committed the F-16’s like they did at Ruby Ridge, and the helicopter gunships, like they did at Mt Carmel by Waco? What about the FLAMETHROWERS?
In July 2004, Burgert pleaded guilty to conspiracy to possess illegal firearms, possession of a machine gun and being a felon in possession of a firearm. Federal prosecutors argued he led a group that amassed machine guns and explosives. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.
Burgert had been arrested in February 2002 after a standoff and a chase. He had a machine gun when he was arrested, and authorities found thousands of rounds of ammunition and homemade explosives while searching sites associated with Project 7.
At the time, officials in Flathead County in far northwestern Montana said that Project 7 also conspired to kill local police officers, judges and county prosecutors.
NBC station KCFW reported that authorities in 2002 discovered a hit list of government officials who Burgert hoped to assassinate.
From what I’ve seen, the guy sounds like a nut and I’m more inclined to believe the feds are attaching him to a militia group.
Given that this is MSNBC, the fugitive’s “militia” connection is probably nothing more tha a couple of dusty old John Birch pamphlets.
“Armed and extremely dangerous”
May that be said of all of us.
you’re a bitter clinger,too ?
Hmmm... Did he kill any? If not, why not?
I'm calling "BS"!
Sounds like a harmless big mouth who likes things that go "bang." .
... It's the quiet ones you have to worry about...
Armed and extremely dangerous
“”May that be said of all of us.””
Roger That. and well said!
The LEs on various levels are kicking in doors, openly assassinating a Marine here in Tucson, harassing and humiliating a guy in Stockton, many other examples. I no longer assume that LE is in the right.
Having lived through the Detroit riots and having our house the only one on the block NOT burned down due to our overwhelming fire power, I cherish our gun rights.
Jackasses like these are an embarrassment at the least.
If he can just make it to Ruby Ridge...
Pete King’s hearings are heating up again and the feds need a dangerous right wing militia fugitive badly.
Talked smack about the government
Ran a Stop sign

Owned guns and ammo
Why do I smell a set up?
“The former militia leader allegedly responded to commands that he surrender by shooting at deputies before disappearing into the forest.”
