    So now, while Harry the Rep. in Nevada tried to have the government enforce laws, people are threatening him.

    That must be the last resort for anti government folks.

    So, the Bundy militia is now stopping ordinary citizens at checkpoints they have set up themselves.

    Sounds like a Gestapo tactic to me.

    Oh, yeah, poor Harry, the last misunderstood Nazi.

    Let's see, how has he characterized this file? I seem to recall the usual spittle flinging rhetoric of "terrorists" when discussing opponents in congress, oh, then there was that reference to "traitors" and even "jihadists".

    Now let's think about that. If say, some survivalists were saying that about him, how many heavily armed homeland security agents would be surrounding them.

    I have not one iota of respect nor sympathy for Harry, "smash mouth", Reid. I know his type, have known them all my life....they are cowards and bullies who use their "exalted position" to demean others, they become vice principals, bureaucrats and politicians.

    In Harry Reid's world you don't disagree, or he goes "nuclear option", so why on earth would anyone by surprised/outraged/alarmed or even bothered by death threats?

    Now, had he acted in anyway statesmanlike, say proposing to use the power and influence of his office to find a peaceful compromise, and was getting threats, THEN I would be concerned.

    But when you swim in the sewer, you attract all kinds of ****.

    I just read an article that stated the armed militia group have left, it was posted on April 25.

    Rep. Horsford looking for solution to armed militia near Mesquit - 8 News NOW

    Representative Steven Horsford, D-Nev., meet Thursday afternoon with several local leaders in Mesquite about what to do about armed militia patrolling the area around Cliven Bundy's ranch.


    Rep. Horsford, whose 4th Congressional district includes the disputed Gold Butte area, met with leaders from Mesquite, Bunkerville and Moapa to try to figure out a strategy where rancher Cliven Bundy feels safe, but armed guards, who have been with him since the dispute with the Bureau of Land Management started, are gone.

    Horsford would like the armed guards out of the area because he believes their presence is hurting a thriving tourist destination.

    Well, it might be construed as such. In some states, such as the one I reside in, preventing someone's movements could fall under the false imprisonment law. A felony.
    940.30 False imprisonment. Whoever intentionally confines or restrains another without the person's consent and with knowledge that he or she has no lawful authority to do so is guilty of a Class H felony. - See more at: 940.30 False imprisonment. - Wisconsin Statutes
    This is the Nevada statute;
    NRS 200.460  Definition; penalties.
    1.  False imprisonment is an unlawful violation of the personal liberty of another, and consists in confinement or detention without sufficient legal authority.
    2.  A person convicted of false imprisonment shall pay all damages sustained by the person so imprisoned, and, except as otherwise provided in this section, is guilty of a gross misdemeanor.
    3.  Unless a greater penalty is provided pursuant to subsection 4, if the false imprisonment is committed:
    (a) By a prisoner in a penal institution without a deadly weapon; or
    (b) By any other person with the use of a deadly weapon,
    the person convicted of such a false imprisonment is guilty of a category B felony
    and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 1 year and a maximum term of not more than 6 years.
    4.  Unless a greater penalty is provided pursuant to subsection 5, if the false imprisonment is committed by using the person so imprisoned as a shield or to avoid arrest, the person convicted of such a false imprisonment is guilty of a category B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 1 year and a maximum term of not more than 15 years.
    5.  If the false imprisonment is committed by a prisoner who is in lawful custody or confinement with the use of a deadly weapon, the person convicted of such a false imprisonment is guilty of a category B felony and shall be punished by imprisonment in the state prison for a minimum term of not less than 1 year and a maximum term of not more than 20 years.

    Maybe sababa has a point there.

    "Domestic terrorism" means activities with the following three characteristics:

    Involve acts dangerous to human life that violate federal or state law;
    Appear intended (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population; (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination. or kidnapping; and
    Occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the U.S.

    That's not what terrorism is.

    What they're doing is a crime, and you're right to be mad, but it's not terrorism.

    Shouldn't this thread be titled "Capitol Police Probing Threatening Statements By Harry Reid"?
    He's calling people terrorists, threatens them (and others) all the time, and is a general menace to the USA.

    I'd say take him to Gitmo and waterboard him, but with the oatmeal and spittle dripping down his chin, it would not be anything unusual for him. Besides, there hasn't been any useful information in his head for years, as evidenced by his cazy ramblings for several years.
