Another Michigan Militia Member Released

The government's case against some right-wing political nut balls continues to fall apart. Taking a page from the Rove Republican Racket, the Obama Administration is targeting political opponents, a really unfortunate trend.

Last week, we reported how three members were released.

Now a fourth member, Kristopher Sickles (pictured), has been released and comments made to the media demonstrates that the Obama prosecutors may end up looking as stupid as their Rove colleagues.

The Associated Press reports:
 A fourth member of a Midwest militia accused of plotting to overthrow the government was released from jail Wednesday after prosecutors said they were confident that the strict conditions under which he was set free would ensure the public's safety. Kristopher Sickles of Sandusky, Ohio, will be electronically monitored 24 hours a day, like three other members of the Hutaree militia who were released under the same conditions Tuesday. 

In a phone interview from jail on April 17, Sickles told The Associated Press that he had "never hurt anyone or taken steps to do so." He said he joined the group to learn how to protect his family. "As far as any specific plan to overthrow the government, I never heard such things," he said. "There was off-color talk, but there was no set plan to overthrow this or take over that."
