SIPSEY STREET: Praxis: Joint Task Force raids. Feds confirm new template in Alaska -- the Hutaree SOP.

Praxis: Joint Task Force raids. Feds confirm new template in Alaska -- the Hutaree SOP.

Hutaree raid staging area.

From a reader in Alaska:

Heard the feds brought in over 80 guys with snipers and state troopers SRT teams for all over the state and Fairbanks swat team. Hit them all about 3pm. They didn't like the fact that Mr. Cox threatened the chief trooper, his 2nd, state and federal judges. They knew he had full-autos and explosives. About half the feds are gone but they are still here in force pulling on strings with more arrests to follow. I was told that the feds want to make a point with Cox. They brought in so many because they thought if they didn't hit hard and get it over in a hurry and if it turned into a gunfight that Fairbanks wouldn't put up with a waco. I was told that most of the troops were for that purpose and that's way they had roadblocks up. And more than one ring of them out to about 2 1/2 miles away. They ran off everyone, news crews and locals who lived in the area, had their guns up and searched a few of the locals cars at gunpoint.

I was told they had someone on the inside shut down the cell towers and land lines.

Mike, what do you think,? Have you heard anything about it in the states?

My reply:

That's the same pattern they used in the Michigan busts of the Hutaree. The rings are Feds on the inside, staties in the middle, locals on the outside. What they're worried about is getting hit in the rear by friends of the targets so why not let the locals absorb casualties, if any? That is what being the King's Forces gets you. Let the native constabulary do the dying to protect your predatory ass. That works as long as the targets are "low-hanging fruits" like Cox or the Hutaree as one of my sources calls them sardonically. Anybody with friends in law enforcement is going to get warned, despite their OpSec precautions. That is the weakness of the "joint task force" idea. It is a great force multiplier for them but sucks for operational security. One day they'll pick on the wrong bunch and the dead on both sides will lie in heaps and a war will start. Not that they think that far ahead.

...Of course the best defense against this is not to live at the place you put on your identifying documents, or anything else.  If you can arrange this-which means either living under a corporate shell or completely anonymously. 
Anything else, either have a escape plan w/ place to land or make your peace with God.
