The BP/Government police state

The very idea that government officials are acting as agents of BP (of all companies) in what clearly seem to be unconstitutional acts to intimidate and impede the media is infuriating. Obviously, the U.S. Government and BP share the same interest -- preventing the public from knowing the magnitude of the spill and the inadequacy of the clean-up efforts -- but this creepy police state behavior is intolerable. In this latest case, the journalists were not even focused on the spill itself, but on BP's other potentially reckless behavior with other refineries, and yet there are DHS agents and local police officials acting as BP's personal muscle to detain, interrogate, and threaten a photographer. BP's destructive conduct, and the government's complicity, have slowly faded from public attention, and there clearly seem to be multiple levels of law enforcement devoted to keeping it that way, no matter how plainly illegal their tactics are.

If and when a hurrican or even tropical storm pushes the oil into cities, you can espect marshall law in the region!
anyone up for a revolution yet?

We need to organize our own blackout and leave the TV off. No MSM, period.

Our government has been the attack dog of corporations since the country was used as collateral for loans from the central bank. Andrew Jackson tried to warn us.

Well I have made the MS Militia's postition known to the local Media outlets and Law Enforcment.

Here in South MS Violations of the 1st amendment will not be tolerated and the Militia will offer security escorts to anywhere the Media want to go as long as:

1. It is public lands.
2. The local goverment has not closed it to the public for health/safety concerns and we have verified that it is a true risk.
3. The media wish to have an escort.

We have members that are HAZMAT Certified and work in that line of work as a career that will ensure the saftey of the media at all times both from a health and security standpoint.

We do not want anyone to get hurt we just want to ensure that the Media is allowed access and that access will remain unrestricted on public lands.

We were called to action a week ago when a member of the MSNG who is friends with another Militia member was told by a private BP contrctor that a section of beach was closed to the public. We verified with the local Government that that was no the case and attempted to track down the Contractor and confront him about it. Sadly they were de-mobing when we arrived on scene.

We have thousands of people here in MS on the look out for BP restricting Access. To date we have not found any reports to be Validated by our recon teams.

We will not react with violence unless it is legally and moraly justified. However we will detain anyone that attempts to close off the beach with out the Local governments approval.

If the local government closes the beach our hands are tied.

Disclaimer: The Mississippi Militia is a well regulated Constitutional Militia and Obeys all the Laws that have been proven Constitutional. We are not a hate group, we welcome all that choose to serve. While some in the Northern part of the state may not be in agreement with the Southerns leadership on this issue, we continue to work in unison to educate the masses about liberty freedom and the Constitution.
