Picture of suspects in St. John Parish shootings starting to emerge

A grainy picture is starting to emerge of the suspects involved in the shootings Thursday morning that claimed the lives of two St. John Parish sheriff's deputies and injured two others. Five of them had apparently been under surveillance in DeSoto Parish in north Louisiana two months ago, and at least one of them was considered a fugitive in Nebraska and Kansas for "making terroristic threats" as well as allegedly selling marijuana.

Authorities believe that suspect, Kyle Joekel, 29, may have ties to anti-government groups, in particular a loose organization known as Posse Comitatus that generally doesn't recognize authority above the level of county sheriff. The name of the group means "power of the county" in Latin, according to the Anti-Defamation League's website.

Group members refuse to recognize various aspects of federal authority, and some refuse to pay taxes. The group has been associated with citizen militias as well as neo-Nazi organizations.

Lt. Robert Davidson of the DeSoto Parish Sheriff's office told The Shreveport Times that the suspects in custody include Kyle Joekel, Brian Smith, Terry Smith, 44, and Derrick Smith, 22. Terry Smith is the father of both Derrick and Brian Smith, according to Davidson, who identified. Brian Smith and Joekel as the shooters in the incident. Davidson said he did not know the name of the other suspects.

Authorities this morning confirmed the four suspects named by Davidson, plus two women: Chanel Skains, 37, and Teniecha Bright, 21.

Even 1 in 6 is above the national average.

Chanel and Terry (upper right, bottom left) appear to have a family resemblance.

BTW, what's up with these pics? I realize that St. John the Baptist Parish probably lacks cutting edge equipment in the Sheriff's office, but these images look like something that came out of a 1968 Telecopier.

attempted first degree murder of a police officer

So, like, is "attempted first degree murder of a police officer" different somehow than attempted first degree murder of a peasant in Loosiyana?

Something with this case doesn’t add up. First the shooting in the Motiva parking lot and then the trailer park. The first was from what I’ve been told was totally unprovoked and the second an ambush of Deputies just asking questions. Why? I don’t buy the Posse Comitatus or Neo-Nazi part yet. Too early.

It's just the DOJ flushing the birds out of the bush with hunting dogs.

It seems that all the crazies lately come from LEFTIST groups, and DEAR LEADER's SUPPORTERS can't have that happen.

So... time to push some right wing extremists over the edge and take the spotlight off the faggots and baby killers.

Oops.... I mean homosexual 'rights' and abortion 'rights'.

“Looks like any crazy bunch that you would run across in a Koon@ss bar to me.”

We heard that they infiltrated down from a cheese lab in the upper Midwest. But looks wise they could make a career on Swamp Things.
