Over two years ago, way back in 2010, I wrote:
And the "Hutaree militia"? I'm now old and scarred enough to say openly what as an MSM editor I would merely have cunningly proposed as an interesting hypothesis to some energetic young reporter: I don't believe it. I don't believe that any group of white blue collar workers would naturally want to attack the local police, another blue collar group.
I think, as Richard Hoste has argued, that it's far more likely to turn out to be a case of entrapment by some ambitious prosecutor trying to please his/her political masters.
Tonight I see this WaPo headline: Mich. militia members cleared of charges that accused them of plotting war against government, AP, March 27, 2009.
Defense lawyer Michael Rataj is quoted saying of U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts (a Clinton appointee, let the record show): "There are very few judges that have this kind of courage."
I say: Hutaree yipee!
