3 Percenters Demonized in Federal Court – Bunkerville Retrial

3 Percenters Demonized in Federal Court – Bunkerville Retrial

THESE EVENTS WERE ABOUT GOOD CITIZENS COMING TO THE AID OF THEIR NEIGHBORS.

Though the defendants are actually Eric Parker, Scott Drexlar, Steven Stewart and Ricky Lovelein, the prosecution has made their association the the group “Idaho 3%” a material part of the case against them. It is enough to believe the government is trying to prosecute the group, as well as the individuals.

3 Percenters

The Three Percenters (also styled “3%ers”) is an American patriot movement which pledges resistance against the United States government regarding any restriction of the United States Constitution. Their primary purpose is to protect constitutional rights and characterized as being ideologically similar to the Oath Keepers.

The group’s name is based on the that the historical American Revolution military’s armed resistance against the British, in the American Revolution, constituted three percent of the population. This number has never been accurately calculated, and estimates vary depending on whether or not slaves are included in the colonial population numbers and women are counted as potential combatants. Wikipedia

Only two of the defendants show a membership connection to the group. Eric Parker and Scott Drexlar have the group’s logo tattooed on their forearms.

The prosecution has claimed that the defendants conspired against the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), and, by extension, the US Federal Government. The government has not shown much success with this charge against these defendants.

The previous trial showed the jury in favor of acquittal.

The government needs this charge validated to fully demonize anyone that challenges them on their policies that contradict the US Constitution.

The prosecution is claiming the conspiracy was continued with their association the the Idaho 3% group, between training and recruitment. They also claim a further conspiracy against the federal government by the Idaho 3% involvement in other “operations”, such as “Operation Gold Rush” in Oregon and “Operation Big Sky” in Montana.

These events were about good citizens coming to the aid of their neighbors for support against the land grab of the alphabet agencies within the federal government. However, it should be noted that these events did not take place until months, or years, after the Bunkerville Standoff in April 2014.

Bunkerville was over. These are events “After the Fact” and do not, by themselves, show a state of mind for a time that long in the past.

Judge Gloria Navarro has allowed these events to be brought in as evidence against these defendants over the objections of the defense.

The Idaho 3% was not formed until after the events in Bunkerville. The government seems to want you to believe otherwise. They would like you to believe that anyone in a group like this is a dissident. They would like the public to call them ‘Anti-government’ and lawless. This is simply not true.

Entered into evidence, and played for the jury, is the overview of the Idaho 3%

    But it’s OK for BLM and ANTIFA to burn cities to the ground with no regard to innocent lives in the vicinity? Got it!

    If these Patriots had not shown up, those 2 incidents of throwing folk to the ground (for not remaining in their arbitrary “Free Speech Zone”) would have gotten got people killed. It would have escalated. I ask again, “When is enough, enough?”

    BTW, this is exactly why 30 years ago I was screaming about Unconstitutional means to produce convictions on drug dealers. Once they do it to one faction they will apply it to all!!!!

      If they would not have shown up, the BLM would have removed the cattle and left

    “3 Percenters Demonized in Federal Court…”

    Our U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of this land, it must be observed that the only crimes assigned to the federal government in the Constitution for law enforcement purposes are Treason, Piracy, Counterfeiting, and International law violations. Which of these does this action fall under?

    It cannot be treason as treason is actions taken against the American people and their LEGITIMATE government, the US Constitution and each state’s Constitution.I cannot see how Piracy or Counterfeiting apples here, nor is this falling under the auspices of International law violations since this was a protest against the people who SERVE WITHIN our government and break not only the contract that they serve under, but the Oath of Office also.

    So where is jurisdiction for the feds regarding this case? What am I missing (and I may well be)?

    Arrest!
    18 U.S. Code § 242 – Deprivation of rights under color of law: Whoever, under color of any law, statute, ordinance, regulation, or custom, willfully subjects any person in any State, Territory, Commonwealth, Possession, or District to the deprivation of any rights, privileges, or immunities secured or protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States, or to different punishments, pains, or penalties, on account of such person being an alien, or by reason of his color, or race, than are prescribed for the punishment of citizens, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than one year, or both; and if bodily injury results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include the use, attempted use, or threatened use of a dangerous weapon, explosives, or fire, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and if death results from the acts committed in violation of this section or if such acts include kidnapping or an attempt to kidnap, aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to commit aggravated sexual abuse, or an attempt to kill, shall be fined under this title, or imprisoned for any term of years or for life, or both, or may be sentenced to death.

    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 696; Pub. L. 90–284, title I, § 103(b), Apr. 11, 1968, 82 Stat. 75; Pub. L. 100–690, title VII, § 7019, Nov. 18, 1988, 102 Stat. 4396; Pub.

L. 104–294, title VI, §§ 604(b)(14)(B), 607(a), Oct. 11, 1996, 110 Stat. 3507, 3511.) https://www.justice.gov/crt/deprivation-rights-under-color-law
    Summary: Section 242 of Title 18 makes it a crime for a person acting under color of any law to willfully deprive a person of a right or privilege protected by the Constitution or laws of the United States.
    For the purpose of Section 242, acts under “color of law” include acts not only done by federal, state, or local officials within the their lawful authority, but also acts done beyond the bounds of that official’s lawful authority, if the acts are done while the official is purporting to or pretending to act in the performance of his/her official duties. Persons acting under color of law within the meaning of this statute include police officers, prisons guards and other law enforcement officials, as well as judges, care providers in public health facilities, and others who are acting as public officials. It is not necessary that the crime be motivated by animus toward the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin of the victim.
    The offense is punishable by a range of imprisonment up to a life term, or the death penalty, depending upon the circumstances of the crime, and the resulting injury, if any.
