So probation checks involve being told to come out of your house with your hands up?

He's pretty well spoken for "that type".
To be honest, I'm a bit curious now.
I want to see what kind of militia he's running.

Imagine if they could do a no knock warrant....this guy or some cops or both could be dead and someone will want to turn it into gun control debate cause cops went barging into the wrong house.

The man sounds very reasonable. The police sound stupid and dangerous as usual.

No clear directions to the house and apparently no address, just directions? So how good and authentic did they think their "probation violation" lead really was?

Even though they knew he was the wrong man, they still demanded he come out and show them he's not armed? WHY THE FARK does the government have the power to drag you out of your house to see that "you're not armed." The man has a right to be as armed as he wants in his own damn house.

It looks to me like a bunch of drunk cops got together and decided they were going to shoot whoever came out of that house.

Now, do the same thing; but to a cops house.

Come in with guns drawn, order him out of his house, then explain, 'lolz - wrong house' and see if any crime has been committed.

"The next thing I know, I have a cop on the phone. He said, 'Put your firearm down and come out with your hands up,'" Page recalled. "If they had turned on a blue light, I would have known right off quick that they were police officers and acted accordingly. What bothers me is that they didn't listen to anything I said and took it for granted that I was some kind of outlaw."

so he's ok with 'criminals' being abused but only gets upset when that sort of attitude is/was directed at him?

The "are you the Ayatollah Khomeini?" skit from Not the Nine O'Clock News almost seems like a US law enforcement training video.

Unless the visit was a warning disguised as an accident.

The militias in Maine also tend to be Revolutionary War buffs. There's lots of get-togethers involving muskets and cannons. I used to go to the cannon shoots every year, they're awesome.

His name is Ernst Rohm. Next time I'll post the GIF of him playing the banjo. Rohm was a gay as gay could be, head of the SA, exiled to Bolivia by Hitler, called home to run the SA again by Hitler, then murdered on Hilter's personal order after Hitler arrested Rohm personally. His "militia" served Hitler very well until businessmen worried that Rohm wanted to put the Socialist back into the Nazi party. He was Hitler's useful idiot. And Hitler murdered him when he was no longer useful. You don't hear too much about the desire of the SA to move towards socialism and away from capitalism. Sort of like you don't hear too much about the Bush family's desire to install a fascist government by overthrowing FDR.

Rohm was a bona fide "rose from the lower officer ranks to high rank" war hero from WWI. He was wounded several times then contracted the Spanish Flu.

I'm with the "militia gun nut," who is a peaceful person and a sick old man.

Nobody has to agree with me to have my support in such matters, even if he'd probably think I'm a noisome commie.

You'd think the Maine State Police would be trained in finding the correct address. Power of arrest and gun ownership should be restricted to people who prove competence in such basic matters.

But guns should be controlled: they should only be given to cops who can find the right address.

To be fair, Rohm was a rabidly Jew-hating creep who would gladly have murdered his own million. Not the kind of guy I'd have over for brunch. Even having been a gay man who "mov[ed] toward Socialism" can't excuse that. Which fortunately is beside the point, as far as my principles go.

Fortunately the death of 6 million Jews has nothing to do with Marriage Equality.
