Dangerous Militia Loons ‘Training’ in National Forest in Michigan
Good weekend to stay away from the woods in Michigan, militia goons & loons aren’t safe to be near.
They were expecting 20 or so more of their colleagues with the West Michigan Volunteer Militia to join them for their monthly training session in the forest near Crocker and Schow roads in Muskegon County’s Cedar Creek Township.
Up the road, Krystal Bowyer and Tom Smith were uneasy. So uneasy, in fact, that they had called lawmakers and government officials for help.
The previous evening, they came home from work to find a stranger digging with a shovel at the mouth of their driveway, on a rutted two-track dirt road. “He said he was trying to fill a hole in the road” to accommodate planned traffic, Bowyer said.
“He said we were going to hear a lot of gunfire all weekend, so we were not to worry.”
But Bowyer and Smith were worried. So they started calling state and national lawmakers and officials in Washington, D.C., for help keeping gun-toting militia out of the woods dotted with motorcycle trails and where horseback riders come from all over to enjoy peace and quiet.
Their calls prompted law enforcement officers from the U.S. Forest Service, the state Department of Natural Resources and the Muskegon County Sheriff’s Office to respond Friday to Smith’s and Bowyer’s rural home at 5665 Crocker where chickens roam free as do the couple’s three dogs.
The officers told the couple the militia had a right to be in the forest, even if they were shooting guns — anyone, in fact, can do that. But the officers went down to investigate anyway.
