    Patriots considered a "great threat" to communities?

    http://www.start.umd.edu/news/sovere...0a6db-49983445

    Sovereign citizen, Islamist extremist and militia/patriot groups are perceived by law enforcement agencies to pose the greatest threats to their communities, according to a new START study. While sovereign citizens were the top concern of law enforcement, assessments about whether most groups were a serious terrorist threat actually declined for most groups (e.g., the KKK; Christian Identity; Neo-Nazis; Racist Skinheads; Environmental Extremists; Animal Rights Extremists) when compared to a previous study.


    It is unnerving to learn that I am number three on the "most perceived threat" list. I consider myself a Patriot. It appears "they" consider me a "threat".

    Trust me, the Patriots won't be a problem.

    I am not anti Cop I am just pro Citizen.

    of their respect for what only appears to be a law, are cunningly coerced into waiving their
    rights, due to ignorance." (Paraphrased)

    The real threat is those who are so willing to join the fight against patriots or people who advocate for liberty. Even trying to demonize them by associating them with "sovereign citizens" or calling them "extreme". Yet they never explain what is "extreme" and extreme from what?

    Be worried when republican and libertarian are added to the list...also, any citizen who places "anachro-" in front of their political philosophy moniker.
