AP, via Fox (yup, that network!):

BIRMINGHAM, Alabama  —  Five members of a self-styled Alabama militia were denied bond Tuesday after a federal agent testified they planned a machine-gun attack on Mexicans. A sixth man accused of having weapons and explosives components in his home was approved for release.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Armstrong said he could not grant bond because of the agent’s testimony and the large number of weapons — including about 200 homemade hand grenades and a launcher — that were seized in raids last Friday.

“I’m going to be worried if I let these individuals go at this time,” the judge said.

The five are charged with conspiring to make a firearm.

Law enforcement authorities, meanwhile, continued to look for additional weapons that could be linked to the group, including in a local cave.

Adam Nesmith, an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified that the five men planned an attack on Mexicans in a small town just north of Birmingham, and went there on a reconnaissance mission April 20.


I thought we were fighting them over there, so we didn’t have to fight them over here. The scary part is these are not the only armed crazies out there.  There’s probably some near you.

I wish our Governor would spend less time worrying his pretty little head about the occasional Syrian who crosses from Tijuana into the U.S. to become a cab driver, and more on … well, the real terrorists.  DAMN!  Maybe we need a fence along the Louisiana/Texas border too.

Down here in the Big Bend, Anglos and Mexi-billies agree… we don’t need no stinking Alabama-bin Ladins…

    WOW! Eye-opening stuff. All I can say is, I guess I’m glad my great state of Wisconsin doesn’t have one of those scary groups….
