FBI Standard Operating Procedure -- a hyped up case, a Bureau political agenda, a dirty lying snitch, and punishment for the credulous dupes. Georgia Geriatic "Militia" members sentenced.

"Ga. Senior Citizen Militia Members Get Five Years In Prison."
Two members of a Georgia militia arrested in a disrupted plot to kill government officials last year were each sentenced to five years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to conspiring to obtain an unregistered explosive device and silencer.
Frederick Thomas, a 73-year-old from Cleveland, Ga., and 68-year-old Dan Roberts of Toccoa, Ga., were each sentenced to five years in prison, followed by three years of supervised release. Both were members of fringe militia organization they referred to as a “covert group.” Federal authorities arrested them in November 2011 for allegedly plotting to attack U.S. citizens and federal employees using the biological toxin ricin. Their alleged targets included Attorney General Eric Holder and former Georgia Rep. Cynthia McKinney.
One reason the feds might have chosen not to pursue further charges: Joe Sims, the FBI’s confidential informant in the case wasn’t exactly an upstanding citizen. Sims was accused of molesting his step children and failed a polygraph test after claiming to know about a plot to blow up buildings in Atlanta, according to a story in Esquire earlier this year. . .
The feds alleged that the plot was inspired by the online novel “Absolved,” which was written by Mike Vanderboegh, the blogger who wrote some of the first posts about the ATF’s Fast and Furious scandal.
Be sure and read the Esquire article here: "Counter-Terrorism Is Getting Complicated. Especially in the case of the Waffle House terrorists, where it may be the Department of Homeland Security that's fomenting terror."

This is very close to home for me. I live in Ellijay, Georgia. Not far from these guys. Does anyone know more about this snitch? Is he still in the North Georgia area looking for pigeons?

Yet, the new black panthers have stated for the record over the airwaves that they want to raise an army to kill and skin white people and that's OK. I guess these old guys should have had their own radio show to discuss the topic they face prison for so it wouldn't be a "conspiracy".

I feel so very safe knowing the FBI is on the job and taking all these nut case militia types and homegrown terrorists off the streets.

And you have to know how proud I am, knowing that the FBI is able to infiltrate these groups (with credible instigators, er ah, informants) and how "the public at large is never in any danger" by making sure these potential murderers are supplied with fake explosives, then taking them down long before their bad Radical Rick talk turns to big bad terrorist action.

The FBI is doing such an outstanding job... one could almost think they are following the examples of "proactive enforcement" used by their counterparts of the former Soviet Union. But we all know that could never happen in America.

Sure, make sure they get their funding by setting up the problem (enticement, entrapment, whatever), and then solving it. See how important they are? (NOT!)

Joe Sims is obviously a maggot, but Scott Matthewson has got to be one too. Who else would consider even the most remote relationship with a person who commits incest? This is an unspeakable crime, yet Matthewson gets Joe Sims free on the streets! Whats worse, no eyebrows get raised over this at FBI or the Homies. Business as usual. That tells me that both agencies are staffed with some very sick individuals. You cannot make this stuff up. The reality of these sickos carrying guns and badges defies the imagination. How do these scum look in the mirror to shave in the morning? We have the criminal element on both sides now. Pathetic!

I'm guessing that's not exactly what happened in OKC.

One tends to wonder why not.

It is about time some of us 'old coots' got really pissed-off and started spanking these out of line putative oath-breakers.

Don't want our legacy to be to hand on a broken system to the next generation.

Guess what - it is a Global Western-World problem.
