Anti-Government Rhetoric…

It caused the deaths of two police officers, a proponent of anti-government rhetoric and, unfortunately, his 16-year-old son.  Though his son was apparently guilty of the violence in this episode as well, he was following his fathers bull shit and was virtually brainwashed.  Perhaps by 16 his die was already cast.  We’ll never know.  But his father got what he was looking for, of that there is no doubt.  

Ohio Man, Son Killed After Ark. Cops Fatally Shot

– An Ohio man’s resentment of authority and run-ins with the law was enough for a local sheriff to warn that he could be dangerous if confronted by law enforcement. Years later, the sheriff appears right: The man and his teenage son are suspected of fatally shooting two Arkansas police officers during a traffic stop before they died in a shootout.

 Jerry Kane Jr., 45, of Forest, Ohio, and his son Joseph Kane, believed to be 16, were killed during an exchange of gunfire with officers in a Walmart parking lot, Arkansas State Police said Friday 

One thing that seems to go hand in hand with the anti-government group is…guns.  Big, hairy full auto sons of bitches that can really help the world see that justice and liberty is what they are all about.

The shootings came about 90 minutes after West Memphis police Sgt. Brandon Paudert, 39, and Officer Bill Evans, 38, were attacked with AK-47 assault rifles after they stopped a minivan on Interstate 40 in West Memphis on Thursday, authorities said.

AK-47s.  I do not like being stopped by the police any more than the next guy, but killing two cops with sub machine guns because you have some sovereignty issues?

Jerry Kane, who had a long history with police, used the Internet to question federal and local governments’ authority over him and held debt-elimination seminars around the country. He recently complained about being busted at a “Nazi checkpoint” near Carrizozo, N.M., where court records show he spent three days in jail before posting a $1,500 bond on charges of driving without a license and concealing his identity.

Well, it looks like Mr. Kane decided to escalate things. 

Mark Potok, who directs hate-group research at the Southern Poverty Law Center, said Kane had not been in the group’s database before Thursday. But he said that was not surprising, given the “explosive growth” in the anti-government movement in recent years. With 363 new groups in 2009, there are now 512, Potok said. Members of so-called patriot groups don’t recognize the authority of the U.S. government and consider themselves sovereign citizens.

 363 New groups in 2009.  Well, these are two anti-government, violent extremists that won’t be troubling us any more.  How many more like them are listening to the drum beat of intolerance from the right every day and building up steam that will need to be vented through the violence valve?  We’ can only wait for the next eruption.

Cause and effect.  Words have consequences.  And another couple of parasites on the backs of us all bite the dust.
