The Miller Dilemma

Jared and Amanda Miller finally gave the feds the excuse they were looking for to put all of us "domestic terrorists" on notice. It was bound to happen wasn't it? And now the post I made only yesterday asks the question of today. Do we have the ability, as a movement, to stomach the sort of thing the Millers did and still stand by our previous statements? Who knows if they were white supremacists, how can anyone know for sure? They draped the cops body with a Swastika, does that say something about them, or the cops? Who are the Nazis in this scenario?

See, how do we, as a community, deal with this act? We know who the cops are; what they are willing to do to innocent citizens. I don't agree with white supremacy. I don't agree with racism. I don't agree with flash-banging a baby in his crib either.

At the Bundy Ranch the feds were willing to unleash snipers. On who? Grass poachers? The Millers are not innocent, possibly racists, perhaps that is what got them kicked out of Bundy's Ranch and rightly so in my book, but like them or not, we just got associated with them and as far as the cops are concerned they are free to kill our families; our babies, to justify their bloodthirsty desire for retribution.

I know the tendency is to back away from the Millers, to let them swing alone, but their rage was not created out of racism, or anti-government conspiracy theories. It was created out of armored cars and militarized police departments encouraging the type of tactics that make the deaths of innocents almost guaranteed. We have all seen the hundreds of cases a year of extreme police brutality and hardly ever a legal case brought against those guilty of what can only be described as executions.

If anything pushed the Millers to do what they did it wasn't the "patriot community" (as several news stories claim, using that particular term that I have probably used a few thousand times and never heard it used in a news story before). What does that tell you? Anyone who identifies themselves with that term is now a target of retribution. They were also connected somehow to the militia and I doubt seriously if they had ever had contact with the militia outside of Bundy Ranch.

I know this will not be a popular post. I know there are several police officers and deputies who read this blog, so let me be very clear here. It is not a question of whether I support the Millers for their act any more than it is a question of whether they support the deputies who flash-banged a toddler in his crib in Georgia.

There is also a distinction to be made. Yes, cops risk their lives and many, many times in arresting true criminals, murderers, thieves, gang members and rapists. That conscious decision to engage these criminals takes courage and they deserve our respect, but they chose that occupation; they knew the risks and assumed them. In this case a couple of officers were killed with, as far as I know, no connection to the Bundy Ranch, or other acts of overt, criminal oppression, but they tolerated in their midst bad cops and probably said nothing, perhaps laughed at their antics of cruelty.

A child in a crib did none of these things and suffered the same fate (even though the child in GA did not die). It was sleeping in a crib for heaven's sake and got flash-banged by eager, arrogant, careless and ruthless men with badges. I know the life of a baby means nothing to the media, they report on them every day, they encourage abortion and see nothing valuable in the state of innocence of a child, but I do.

That distinction is critical to understanding the difference between the causes of one death and the senseless death of another. It is the difference between understanding that one makes themselves a target by their complicity to corruption and brutality and not understanding what a baby in a crib could possibly be complicit in.

The feds have put me in association with the Millers, because they want me there. It gives them a reason to kill me and my family without regret, remorse or anything, except a high five. If that is you, if you recognize yourself in these words, you do not deserve my respect and I will not feel sadness at your passing.

You cannot continue to take citizen's lives so lightly and expect them to cherish yours. The police department is supposed to be a cooperation between citizens and those expected to enforce the laws the people have designed to order a civil society. When the police turn their power against the people they cannot expect and do not deserve the support of the people. If that manifests itself in acts as committed by the Millers, only the police have the ability to reverse the trend.

  1. As in Germany in the 30's, the NSDAP needed to create a scapegoat to focus the anger and desire to dominate a foe. The leadership of NSDAP chose the Jews as the scapegoats, leveraging the rampant antisemitism of the time.
    Today, the left and their puppets in FedGov are doing the same. The militarization of the police, the anti-gun movement, the limits on free speech, indefinite detention without trial, drones and all that goes with it. We are witnessing the resurrection of the tyranny of the 1930's in Germany in our own nation and we Patriots are the new Jews. As the area of Germany was small compared to America, so will the death toll from the coming holocaust be several orders of magnitude larger.
    God help us all!

  5. Great thoughts. I especially liked "You cannot continue to take citizen's lives so lightly and expect them to cherish yours".

    Also those LEO's who profess over and over that they are not like that need to realize that remaining where they are and allowing those who are like that to continue is simply lumping them in with them.

    The Millers it has been reported were asked to leave the Bundy ranch. When have the LEO's who are not like that ever made the others who are leave?

  8. I am surprised and saddened at what I have read here. Tell me please what an act by a police department in Georgia has to do with justifying the murder of two officers in Arizona eating pizza? I agree what happened in Georgia was a tragedy and the responsible parties should be dealt with. But this has nothing to do with these 2 officers. Someone tell me what did these 2 officers do to violate anyones rights? What did they do to deserve being murdered in cold blood?
    If you make excuses for the miller meth heads than we are no better. The feds may try to group all "patriots " together but this is when we have the chance to make our voice actually heard. Speak out against this sensless violence and voice our concerns with the problems not with two officers eating pizza.

    1. The two officers were part of an organization which has murdered a disabled veteran, CPT Scott, in cold blood. The two officers were part of an organization which had is its possession the video of CPT Scott's murder for 60 hours then declared the video "unusable." Color me unsympathetic to both misbegotten ossifers and their equally worthless kin.

    2. Link to the situation you speak of please? I can't find d it through Google.

      Even then where these two officers involved? If simply working for an organization that has wronged someone means we are quilt then we all are. Name me one organization even in the private world that hasn't dropped the ball, paid off a building inspector, failed to speak out, etc.
      There is a line that being involved does mean guilt by association but this is far from it. The very guilt by association everyone is upset that the higher ups at the feds will be using soon is the same that we are applying to local police.

    3. Scott was not just wronged - he was murdered in cold blood by members of a militarized criminal gang with guns, badges and uniforms, where politicians obfuscate, lie and destroy evidence to protect them. I feel bad for the officers and their families and the Millers were psychotic killers, but when so many police act like psychotic killers - and get away with it, do not be surprised that more sociopaths/psychopaths do not stage a command performance. There will also be some staged "false-flag" events in order to further justify reductions in liberty, and further destruction of constitutional rights in the name of "officer safety". When police act as the "muscle" for corrupt and abusive authoritarian government - they will be the first casualties. Most police are good people - but when they tolerate even a scintilla of wrongdoing by their fellow officers - they are just as guilty, and should not be surprised when they are painted with the same broad brush.

    4. Apparently you are misguided about the subject matter. First, it was a follow up on a previous post wondering about the patriot community (and their ability or willingness to understand that there is a media war against anyone who believes these rights are sacred and that the greater part of government is dedicated to the violation of each and every one of them) and it's willingness to go against the demonization of anyone who stands up for those rights against the backlash.

      Then I heard of this story about the Millers and understood that what they had done would brand us all with their actions because they had been to the Bundy Ranch and sure enough the media went whole hog to give cover to unrestrained targeting of the members of the patriot community (a term only we use and suddenly got linked to Tea Party and other miscreants and white supremacists) Isn't that odd? Are you too blind to see it was deliberate.

      But, let's address the correlation between the Millers and Law Enforcement in general. Yes, there is a difference. When the Millers killed a couple of police officers (and your presentation of them as innocent just because they were eating pizza is absurd. They were cops in Las Vegas for heaven's sake. I wonder the ratio of true blue honest cops in that town, but that is beside the point except to point out that you have no basis for your presumption of their innocence just as I have none for their guilt, but guilt or innocence is irrelevant to the post I wrote.

      The point I was making was that when the Millers killed the cops it was an act of violence for which they paid with their lives. When a cop, like the cop who shot two women delivering newspapers in LA during the Dorner fiasco because they had a pickup truck. Forget that they were women, not a man, like Dorner, and there were two of them rather than a lone, crazed gunman, what happened? Was that an accident or reckless panic?

      The problem you don't want to think about is that because they are police we have put them on the streets, we have given them deadly weapons and tolerated all of these murders of innocents and we are, as a society, as guilty as them if we don't demand accountability, but we don't. Oh, a cop shot another innocent person, burned a baby with a flash-bang. Dang, that's sad. Oh, well, what's on television.

      That is the careless attitude I will not take. So, I pointed out that when the cops, the people we put there, the people we handed deadly weapons and gave special powers to in order that they might investigate crimes against us, turn that power, that back on us for no other reason than we rally against government corruption and try to hold them accountable for their unconstitutional acts, their violations of our rights, then no, I do not feel sorry for the fact that they got caught in the sights of the Millers. And, as I wrote: They alone have the power to remove themselves from the target area by refusing to violate our rights, by not throwing flash-bangs into cribs, by not shooting newspaper women in search of a man, a cop, by the way; by doing their job and not the bidding of corrupt politicians making hay out of tragedies by coming after us, the truly law-abiding defenders of our rights and by the way, yours too.

  9. I'm not sure what you expect us in the LEO Community to do. I go out and protect innocent children and women from drunk and drug addicted domestic violence abusers nightly. If I did not intervene they would get hurt or killed and no one would be there to help. I enter homes where persons who don't have your skills or abilities or access to firearms are actually being burglarized and many other legitimate dangerous criminal situations that happen nightly and without an LEO involved would be catastrophic for those involved. If we all in the LEO community, suddenly walked off our jobs tomorrow, because we are protesting the "bad among us" how would so many who need legitimate protection get it? Everyone in society is not a III member ready to throw down and gun up with the real evil criminal element out there who will take advantage of them viciously. I think Its a lot more complicated than you guys make it. I don't have any answers but I will continue to do my job and take the risk of someone taking out their frustration on me and I will continue to support the second amendment and freedom for all even as I do my best to protect the most vulnerable among us.

    1. I understand your position. It is tough and we do need the police or some form of it, but not what we see today, not going after people who have done nothing other than stand up for the legitimate rights. Those men standing before the Bundy Ranch resistors had snipers overlooking the Ranch, tazers and they used them for no apparent reason other than the Bundy Family did not lay down and kneel before their power as officers. I understand that Bundy had not paid his grazing fees and ignored the ruling of the courts, but snipers over grass his cattle ate on public land for which he did not have a permit, but grazing rights and I have seen many of such cases. I covered the first one back in 1993 for Western Horseman magazine about the Sombrero Ranch in Estes Park Colorado when the NPS decided to force him to move his improvements 100 feet away, but still on federal land at the estimated cost of 2 million dollars. Odd that Bundy's problems happened the same time frame isn't it?

      But, the point is, you guys are given deadly weapons and sent out in our name to bring criminals to justice. I have never failed to recognize that tough job when I have to tackle such an issue. But, Bundy wasn't a criminal, he was just a guy standing up for the grazing RIGHTS secured long ago, because to lose them meant he would lose everything.

      The police are supposed to defend the people from violations of their rights, not violate them themselves and shrug to each other when a fellow officer is known to have driven drunk, or used illegal drugs, or taken a payoff, all crimes, without their fellow officers arresting him on the spot.

      I would like you to simply admit that it goes on and that it tarnishes the whole profession. That things are getting worse and that there are those attitudes in the force of an us against them. That's where it starts to go wrong and it is because you have not cleaned your own house well enough that I don't fear any criminal as much as I fear interaction with the police, cause a criminal might steal from me or kill me, but the cops can make my life a living hell, bankrupt me legal bills, derail my daughter's education and it can all be persecution for my political beliefs. Tell me that that is right, when I put that gun in their hand and pinned that badge on their chest in the hopes that they would do the right things with them.

    2. Walking off the job in protest is the pussy way out.. you tough guys are supposed to be doing the job we pay you for.. we want you "good guys" to arrest and prosecute the scumbags in your agencies, Even if they are your superiors, who break the laws you hold us accountable for, violate our rights knowingly and follow illegal orders because you are afraid of your union scum leadership and losing your benefits.. Crime has no rank or authority.. If you were doing your lawful job in the first place you wouldn't be making this whining post.. if you fear the cops you work with don't come whining to us about what you should do.. you already know. If you want help to restore the law you have an armed citizenry to assist you but you all choose to call us criminals because we refuse to disarm or submit to illegal laws and contrivances against our lawful god given rights. The lawfully armed society is law enforcements biggest ally yet you all attack us as if we are the enemy and since you have all identified us as the enemy by your actions what do you think that makes all of you. Law enforcement in America is at a tipping point in this country and you put yourselves on the balance beam.. what comes from it will be because of actions you all take from this point forward.. too many of you believe the lies, wake up.

    3. I wish you would walk off the job.

      The reason people remain defenseless is precisely because they are told cops are out there protecting them. If there were no cops, most of them would take up the responsibility to protect themselves, or associate themselves with others who would protect them (one of the main reasons for marriage that nobody wants to acknowledge). And the rest? Those too stupid to protect themselves and too obnoxious to find a protector to associate with? They will die, just as nature intended and as Darwin described. But with everybody else arming themselves, maybe the criminal profession would not last long anyway and these stupid ones could still survive. I don't care one way or the other. We all die in the end; it's the kind of world we leave our children that is what matters.

      By the way, with no cops on the job, gun control would immediately become a loser as a political strategy, even in places like Chicago and New York.

      I don't want or need "protectors". There is way too much collective-speak around here; "we" did not create the profession of police. It was largely the ruling class that did that. There has never been a tyranny in human history that was not accompanied by an enforcer class, a praetorian guard. That's what your real job is, despite your convincing yourself you are "helping" the rest of us. When I look in the rear-view mirror to see a cop behind me, I do not feel happy. That's all I need to know about how useful cops are for me.

      We don't need any more of your so-called help. So please, stop helping us.

  10. For me this is a question of accountability and justice. Considering the gross numbers of people being killed in botched raids and what looks like daily violations of Constitutional protections such as women being stripped searched for minor infractions, people being ruined via government persecution and little or nothing done to prosecute those responsible breeds resentment, sometimes, hatred, and yes and at time blind retribution against those seen as associated with such infractions.

    "If you prick us do we not bleed?
    If you tickle us do we not laugh?
    If you poison us do we not die?
    And if you wrong us shall we not revenge? "

    Criminal prosecution of government officials is an absolute necessity to prevent these types of evenst. Being in a position of trust such officials should be held to a HIGHER not lower standard. Violations of basic God given Constitutional rights cannot be ignored if government wants and expects the support of the government. If such violations continue without redress my fear is these attacks will continue.

    I pray someone takes notice before things get much worse.

    Today's cops are trading on the reputation of their predecessors. Men and women that were honorable, brave and fair. Today a badge is nothing more than a license to be a bully. 35 or 40 years ago if a cop was in trouble there is no question that I would stop and help him. In today's world I might stop but don't bet on who I would help.

  15. Last summer was my 20 year reunion for high school. Didn't care to see most of my class mates so I didn't go. Instead I invited my best friend from hs to lunch. Hadn't seen him in a while. He is now a high ranking officer with our metro pd and a marine. Good fellow and a Christian.

    As we chatted about policing and some high profile cases of police brutality, he expressed some feelings and some of his actions which really made me want to cry. I mentioned a case of officers trying to remove a mentally handicapped man from a theater which resulted in the mans death and how that could be MY son. He replied "teach him to follow officer commands".

    No such luck. My son is autistic. Should he die because he cannot understand?

    We also discussed oath keepers. He told me he's not sure he could join since he routinely violates people's civil rights as a matter of procedure. I told him that the actions of a few bad cops is destroying the relationship that leo has w the public. He wholeheartedly refused to accept this fact.

    I love this guy like my own brother and I pray that he changes his heart before he victimizes more people or becomes a victim himself.

      However it is disturbing to read how some of who I consider my fellow patriots would simply wish, or possibly bring to me, death just because of the profession I am in. I have never violated anyones rights, never brutaly attacked anyone. I know of only one instance at my department when someone got out of line. That individual was proptly fired and charged and later convicted. So what have I or my other brothers and sisters in my area done to deserve to die?

      In the original post T.L. Davis states that the Feds will try and group all patriots as the Millers. I ask T.L. Davis what have you just done with the local officers,deputies, patrol men, etc?

    2. No, I did not intend to lump you all together, but even if I did, what damage could I do to you? I might make you feel bad about yourself, or something, but when the government puts us in the same basket as psychotic killers they can do a lot, they put my life in immediate danger, just by the association. Look at how drug suspects homes are raided. How long before "domestic terrorist's" homes are invaded the same way, and since we are just family men, mostly, it is a direct threat to our whole family. That is the eventuality I am trying to prevent by hoping you guys can see that what I am saying is right and help me stop it.

    3. By lumping us all together is sounds as if you not only agree with but are encouraging the continuation of what the Millers tried to start. You speak of your family, I also have one who have grown accustomed to me as well. I understand that it is difficult to fully express your thoughts on a subject in a short blog, but do try look at the other side of the coin from time to time. Just like not all well diggers are cold hearted and crooked neither are LEOs. Yes there are some as in any profession and they need to be removed. The blacket call for violence will not help. There will come a time and place when a line will be drawn that I and my fellow LEOs will have to choose a side, we are not quite other yet. Until that time comes things must be handled on a case by case status.

      While some cops somewhere might have been killed by two politically motivated people, but the certainty of being harassed by cops in my position is 100% as it has already happened. What happens when they smash my door in as a domestic terrorist? Really, I mean, stop defending your position and look at mine. Do you not realize the massive more likelihood of being killed by a cop than killing one?

    5. OK I believe I am starting to understand your position more clearly. While I have never been under Federal investigation, at least not that I know of. I can imagine how that would be.
      The point that I am trying to make is that your local LEOs and the federal XYZ agency personal are not the same. The personality of the 2 are very different. Just like we can't judge one person who claims to be a patriot as speaking for everyone neither can we judge LEOs by the actions of the bad ones that make headlines or the FEDs who I contest are not even in the same boat.

      Either way if we disagree I guess we will just have to agree to do so. If/when the day ever comes I know what side I will choose. Perhaps I am foolish but I still hope and pray for a second great awakening of sorts for this country. Perhaps it will come and perhaps it won't. I pray for the best yet prepare for the worst as we all do.

      The profession of police work didn't even exist for the first hundred years in this country. We got on fine without them.

    Why Can't you see that, Just as you all are not Miller and cannot be held accountable for his actions or expected to be able to stop or correct his like in the future, LEO's are not all evil rights bashing fascists and cannot be expected to correct or stop all of the excesses which go on around the nation. Remember, all of the ways both groups do good both in your community and the LEO community are never reported by anybody, only when somebody crosses the line, on either side does it get fed to us to exploit both groups.

  18. I guess what you LEO's don't understand is that the reputation of "police" be they federal, state or local is going from good to bad. That may not be due to your individual or personal actions but it is the fraternity you chose to join and good, bad or indifferent that reputation follows you. I really hate to burst your bubble but if you are a cop, any kind of cop, you are in that group. And if you want to whine about how unfair that is tough shit. Life's a bitch etc, etc. (I'm wasting my breath)

    History is replete with examples of anarchy turning on those who wield power. Look at Bosnia just a couple of decades ago. Cops and their families were hunted down rightly or wrongly. They were perceived as unjust and complicit authorities. Look at our own revolution. Houses burned and people fleeing in the dead of winter just for being British sympathizers. Humans are nasty animals. It's up to you boys to change that public perception.

  19. YankIII summed up a common sentiment in one sentence---"Because of your Blue Brotherhood and created union mentality you refuse to act against those who act illegally against us and our rights you all swore to uphold."

    "I'm going to uphold the law, but against whom I choose," is the very definition of NOT-Rule-of-Law. Intent may matter when judging a person, but socially the only issue is what a person DOES. Pretending that Not-Rule-of-Law is Rule-of-Law can only lead to bad consequences. As we see.

Then an infant flash-banged in GA. We hear the Police Chiefs defend them, never fire them let alone prosecute them. What we don't see is one damn LEO or organization of LEO's calling a press conference to say they stand out against this ruthlessness and believe me I've looked.
    Tell you what I'll give you the benefit of the doubt that you are as much patriot as any of us. I'll travel to a destination of your convenience, I'll call a press conference and stand by your side as a III%, with you in uniform and we will call out these corrupt politicians and LEO's and tell them this will no longer be tolerated and "we" are coming for them.
    Damage855,cowboy up and put your money where your mouth is, or don't snivel about being a potential target, you my friend need a paradigm shift.

    III
    Resist
    VICTOR

  21. LEO weigh in here...

    Hey, T.L., sorry I been gone awhile. I have just browsed over your last few weeks of blog posts and it seems you are in a dark place. Remember that a city set on a hill and a small candle are the start of civilization or peoples. You are an example of that heart, that flame. You seem to be carrying a heavy burden.

    This Miller incident is just some of the dross and confusion that surrounds the war. It is in the fog. It is the fog. There is no sense to be made of it. It will be capitalized upon by any who can propagate it. We all need to stay focused. Find a hill and get a fresh view. That's advice for everyone. Heck, on both sides. May cooler heads prevail.
    There will always be the loose ends that act out or feel entitled. All things, events, mix but most are not intelligently connected.
    God works all things together for the good of those who love Him...
    I guess the enemy does too.
    Keep the heart all. East TN

  22. Freedom (true freedom) includes the right to self-segregate... Freedom of association must also include freedom from association with those an individual does not want to associate with for any reason. Until we have that again, we are not free.
    The new Scarlet Letter is an "R" and we all know what that stands for.

    Until enough of us boldly proclaim "we are not ashamed to be labeled "racists" the downward spiral will continue.

  23. Police-in better but far from perfect times-were known, and behaved as Peace Officers...but are now known as "law enforcement officers", enforcing ever more silly and ridiculous and oppressive laws in increasingly brutal ways.

    An entertaining education that displays the difference between a Peace Officer (the often unarmed Andy Taylor) and a LEO (Barney Fife-a very mild version of the LEOs encountered these days) can be found in the vintage TV series: The Andy Griffith Show
