Why waste resources on arresting terrorists who want to impose the Sharia, commit random acts of mass murder, stone raped women to death, or behead those who refuse to submit to Islam?
It's those Jewish money launderers who are the real threat! /s
LAS VEGAS (AP) - Four members of an anti-government group have been arrested on charges that include money laundering, tax evasion and weapons possession [Ed: this article later states the 'weapons possession' is ONE unregistered machine gun], federal prosecutors said Friday.
Authorities said the four men are members of the Sovereign Movement, a group that attempts to overthrow the government and defy authority with "paper terrorism." The arrests in Las Vegas on Thursday capped a three-year investigation into the group's activities led by the Nevada Joint Terrorism Task Force, U.S. Attorney for Nevada Greg Brower said.
A grand jury indictment in federal court in Las Vegas names Samuel Davis, 54, of Council, Idaho; Shawn Rice, 46, of Seligman, Ariz.; Harold Call, 67, of Las Vegas; and Jan Lindsey, of Henderson.
Davis and Rice are accused of laundering roughly $1.3 million for undercover FBI agents, who described the money as loot from a bank fraud scheme. Davis and Rice are charged with one count of conspiracy to commit money laundering and 30 counts of money laundering. If convicted, they face up to 20 years in prison and a $500,000 fine on each count.
Davis was described by prosecutors as a national leader in the Sovereign Movement, whose members believe government licenses, taxes and currency are invalid. Rice described himself as a lawyer and rabbi devoted to anti-government teaching, authorities said.
Note the article doesn't say the arrested men committed the 'bank fraud scheme,' they are simply accused of laundering FBI money. And as for the tax evasion, the task force could have had more success investigating the Obama Administration.
If I were a Nevada resident, I would be interested in knowing how much of my tax money went into this investigation which netted only 4 suspects, charged with laundering a relatively small amount of money and possessing one unregistered rifle. And while we're at it, how much is being spent to combat real Homegrown Terrorism?
