Wednesday, March 31, 2010 Capitol locked down in wake of threats
State workers and visitors to the Nevada Capitol were surprised Wednesday morning to find all but the front door locked and metal detectors for both packages and people set up at the entrance.
The Capitol was locked down late Tuesday after the FBI advised the governors of all 50 states they would be receiving letters from an extremist group demanding their resignations.
The letters advises those governors that, if they don't resign, members of the group will come and “commandeer” their offices. It was received by the Capitol Police at noon Monday and immediately turned over to FBI investigators.
The letters are apparently from an organization allied with Sovereign Citizens, which the Anti-Defamation League identifies as a collection of anti-government groups advocating an anarchist ideology. Its followers believe every level of government in the United States is illegitimate and should be eliminated. One of the ideology's adherents was Terry Nichols, accomplice of Oklahoma City bomber Timothy McVeigh.
The Department of Public Safety could not be reached for comment on the situation....

I said they will end up in jail, because of this and what the government calls them.

It's cool man, but now we have another mission. Find out why there is not a single mention of this on any FBI site anywhere...I'd say it's probably to give this as little public attention as is humanly possible.
