    Capitol Police Probing Threatening Statements Against Harry Reid[W:29]

    Capitol Police Probing Threatening Statements Against Harry Reid - NBC News

    The investigation comes nearly two weeks after Reid, D-Nev., called controversial Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters "domestic terrorists."

    Bundy, who led an armed confrontation with federal rangers over a land dispute and was later praised as a patriot by some conservative commentators, drew condemnation last week for comments widely criticized as racist. In the wake of Bundy's remarks, Reid excoriated the rancher.

    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.

    Rep. Steven Horsford — a freshman Nevada Democrat whose district spans the region outside of Las Vegas where Bundy is battling the BLM — expressed serious concerns Sunday that out-of-state “armed militia groups” were exerting undue influence and scaring residents in Bunkerville, Nev., and the surrounding areas, about 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.
    In a Sunday letter to Clark County Sheriff Douglas Gillespie, Horsford alleged that armed groups have created checkpoints requiring individuals “to prove they live in the area before being allowed to pass” and have established “a persistent presence” around highways, local schools and churches.
    “We must respect individual constitutional liberties, but the residents of and visitors to Clark County should not be expected to live under the persistent watch of an armed militia,” Horsford said in the letter.

    While private citizens should not be setting up roadblocks/checkpoints, I have to ask since you said their actions are "like a Gestapo tactic," do you think law enforcement in various states setting up roadblocks/checkpoints for DUI, drugs or DNA is "like a Gestapo tactic?"

    It's not unlawful for a police department to set up checkpoints or roadblocks for DUI/DWI. I won't split hairs with you or anyone else in this thread as to what is lawful and what is not. Armed citizens have no lawful right or purpose for stopping people or motorists.

    So if politicians/lawyers create a new law then it automatically becomes lawful? So torture under President Bush, selling weapons to Iran in exchange for hostages under President Reagan, spying on a rival political party under President Nixon and political assassinations of foreign leaders under President Truman to President Nixon was lawful because White House lawyers and the President himself said it was okay?

    No it isn't lawful, just as it is slander and defimantion of character to call americans domestic terrorists with little or not proof.
    Harry Reid is getting the backlash that he deserves for his stupid inane comments.

    Technically those people should sue him, but for some reason he gets immunity to say stupid crap like that from a lawsuit but he can be tried in the public court of opinion of which
    there is no immunity.

    hopefully the people of nevada will vote this loser out of office.

    What does this have to do with death threats to a congressional representative?

    Say something about the topic, death threats to Harry Reid.

    Armed militia confronting federal officers are domestic terrorists, Harry's definition fits that at the FBI website.

    I know what I would do if someone outside the law tried to stop my motor vehicle.

    It is also wrong to be threatening representatives and lawmakers of congress, or even ordinary citizens, people are given prison time for such actions when proven in a court of law.
