I didn't see anything about that officer being shot in those articles. Good that they got the bastard though.

I knew Jim very well. When I worked on the Blytheville Fire Dept, he was on the Blytheville PD. I had just visited with him a few months ago in Gassville and he said that he liked the peace and quite of that area. Ironic, retiring from the war zone in Blytheville and ending up getting killed in the line of duty in Gassville.

Almost on topic....the bad guy was a Nazi. Any of ya'll heard/know anything about any of the extremist camps operating in Western (or any other part) or AR?

I've heard a lot of rumors about some in the North Central part.

OT: Glock23c You know a Capt on BFD named Doug? Works PT at Wally world? He's a buddy of mine.

It's always sad when we loose a member of public service. Let's all lift his family in prayer. I understand that the gal that was in the car with him was also shot in the head and killed by the murderer. Her family is in our prayers as well.

Dusty,

I've been gone almost 19 years. I might know him if I knew his last name, I've kept up with a few of those guys, but most that were there when I was are now either gone or retired.

North Central region, CSA, and Posse Comitatus. Pretty marginalized now, most have neither the money nor influence to be a major concern to most LE. Especially now that the Meth trade has taken over everything. That's not to say that individual members cannot be dangerous, but you just don't see alot of activity out of them anymore. Several PC are around the Mena area.
