Ga. man sentenced to 15 years in Army militia plot
| January 22, 2013 | Updated: January 22, 2013 8:32pm

HINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) A 22-year-old Georgia man pleaded guilty Tuesday to more than 30 charges for his involvement with a group of Army soldiers who authorities say planned acts of domestic terrorism.

Timothy Joiner, a former soldier who served in Iraq, pleaded guilty Tuesday to burglary, financial-transaction-card thefts, and violations of the street-gang terrorism and prevention act, among other offenses, said Prosecutor Isabel Pauley.

He pleaded guilty as a first offender and was sentenced to five years in prison, followed by 10 years of probation. If he successfully completes the probation, the criminal felony conviction will be stricken from his record, Pauley said. If Joiner violates his probation, he will appear in front of a judge again and be sentenced for each individual offense which would translate to 376 years in prison, she said.

Joiner stole various items to provide bond for a jailed leader of Forever Enduring Always Ready or F.E.A.R., the prosecutor said. The group was a self-described anarchist militia led by soldiers who authorities say plotted to bomb a Savannah park fountain, poison apple orchards in Washington state and assassinate the president.

1. Sadly, I expect this idiot to cite this as "proof" he was right

I'm at the point of giving up on trying to understand these people.

2. That's not good

Wacked out authoritarian delusions on the right, and a floating population of ex-troopers who can't find steady work. That's a fire hazard.

4. A snitch in time . . .

A snitch in time saves three and three quarter centuries. That was a smart move, and an even smarter lawyer.

6. Hope there's agents watching every militia.

 

I don't want them to be able to take a piss in the woods or walk their dog without a federal agent knowing about it.

7. Our home-grown militias . . .

Our home-grown militias represent a much greater threat today than any on-the-run terrorists in the outback of Pakistan. One need only read what they say to get that message. I hope they are watched (and infiltrated) to the maximum possible extent. The resources used to snoop on environmental activists should be tapped, if more funding and additional agents are needed.
