Second Amendment Activists Shoot Down Tyranny in Las Vegas

Filed in National by on June 9, 2014

Las Vegas couple who spread freedom and liberty by shooting to death two police officers, and a third person delivered a anti-tyranny message as they left home before the ambush with a shopping cart of weapons, a neighbor said.

“We gotta do what we gotta do,” Jerad Miller told Kelly Fielder, adding that he and his wife, Amanda, were departing for an “underground world.”

Amanda Miller then embraced the neighbor and said, “I am so sorry.”

Fielder said she had heard the husband make anti-government statements in the past — including a desire to overthrow the government and President Obama and kill police officers — but was not alarmed by them.

This is so sickening that I’m just going to post the rest of the story verbatim:

“I thought he was just all talk,” Fielder, who described herself as Amanda’s “best friend,” told NBC Los Angeles.

In retrospect, Fielder said, she wishes she had alerted the authorities when the couple took off on foot from their Spruce St. home early Sunday with an arsenal in their red cart.

“I should have called the cops right then. I thought he was talking outside of his neck.”

Jerad Miller had two guns and “all kinds of ammunition,” Fielder said. His wife carried a .38 caliber handgun in her purse and also had an AR-1 rifle, she said.

“They said they were going to go to an underground world and they needed protection,” she said.

“I should have called the cops right then. I thought he was talking outside of his neck.”

Less than six hours later, the couple barged into CiCi’s Pizza a few miles away, yelled “This is the start of a revolution!” and started firing, witnesses told police.

The officers, Alyn Beck, 42, and Igor Soldo, 32, were inside having lunch, and both were mortally wounded, Sheriff Doug Gillespie said.

Authorities said the suspects stripped the dead officers of their weapons and ammunition. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported they covered the dead officers with the Revolutionary War-era Gadsden flag, which depicts a coiled snake and the words “Don’t Tread On Me.”

The shooters then headed to a Walmart, where they yelled, “Everyone get out!” before unleashing a hail of bullets.

“They just said, ‘The revolution’s begun,’ they said that they shot some officers, and basically get out of the store if you don’t want to get hurt,” said Tyrone Ellis, who works at the store.

The couple sprayed bullets, hitting a third person, who was identified Monday as Joseph Robert Wilcox, 31 of Las Vegas.

When cops arrived at the store, they found Wilcox at the front entrance and exchanged fire with the suspects, who fled further into the store, Gillespie said.

Officers then heard more shots: The Millers apparently killed themselves, in what officials described as “some kind of suicide pact.”

The motive for the entire episode was unclear.

Fielder portrayed Jerad Miller as the dominant partner in the relationship — “He was a very controlling person” — and suggested his wife was not happy about his anti-government rhetoric.

She said that he had boasted about killing police officers and putting swastikas on their body. The couple had traveled with her to the ranch where Cliven Bundy led an armed standoff with federal rangers, but Fielder said she didn’t stay.

    Remember that DHS report on right wing extremists? Good times.

  2. Jason330 says:

    To paraphrase Stephen Colbert – facts have a tyrannical, anti-second amendment bias.

  3. cassandra_m says:

    These terrorists apparently draped the officers in a Gadsen flag and stripped them of their weapons:

    The shooters then stripped the officers of their weapons and ammunition and badges, according to a law enforcement official with knowledge of the investigation. They then covered the officers with something that featured the Gadsden flag, a yellow banner with a coiled snake above the words, “Don’t tread on Me.”

    Then there’s the report up at TPM that these terrorists were part of the Cliven Bundy ranch temper tantrum.

  4. Delaware Dem says:

    Yet another example of right wing Republican terrorism.

  5. Delaware Dem says:

    Time to use this as probable cause to raid the Bundy compound and arrest all on his and his occupied federal property. They are all traitors. Time to violently treat them as such.

  6. Geezer says:

    Uh-oh. Now we have to put up with seven more years of right-wingers whining that you want them all shot.

    Time to update the old bumper sticker to “One drone strike can ruin your whole day”

  7. bamboozer says:

    Far right terrorism is by far the dominant source of terror attacks in America, for some reason we have not been paying enough attention to this home grown maniacs.

  8. Geezer says:

    Clearly, attacking the government and its agents is OK if you’re an American. Let some guy in Pakistan hate on us, though, and it’s time to call in the drones.

  9. Jason330 says:

    I’d say that it is time to charge Wayne LaPierre, except …TYRANNY!

    18 U.S. Code § 2383 – Rebellion or insurrection
    Whoever incites, sets on foot, assists, or engages in any rebellion or insurrection against the authority of the United States or the laws thereof, or gives aid or comfort thereto, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

  10. pandora says:

    LOL! They’re all about tyranny and the Constitution. Explain that.

  11. Delaware Dem says:

    I love how these traitors in Vegas nicely combined Nazism with the Tea Party. They placed the Don’t Tread on Me Gadsen Flag and Nazi Swastikas on the bodies of their victims. Thank you.

    Now, everyone who loves the Tea Party is a Nazi, by default.

  12. Jason330 says:

    The connection between tea bags and fascism isn’t a connection they ever really try to cover up. The reason they project tyranny and totalitarianism onto everything is a terrified response to not seeing their brand of tyranny and totalitarianism gaining ground.

  13. cassandra_m says:

    Clearly, attacking the government and its agents is OK if you’re a white American.

    There. Fixed that for you, Geezer.

  14. cassandra_m says:

    And TPM has pictures of one of these terrorists, along with his claim that the Cliven Bundy ranch temper tantrum was the start of a revolution.

  15. TRUTH teller says:

    We can all thank Rush, Beck and Henney along with Fox Noise for this

  16. Frank says:

    Pakistan has suicide bombers. We have suicide shooters.

    Not a damn bit of difference other than the weaponry.

  17. Jason330 says:

    Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill said the two suspects, Jerad Miller and his wife, Amanda, had ideology that was along the lines of “militia and white supremacists” and that law enforcement was the “oppressor.”

    McMahill said the shootings were an isolated act and officers were still looking for a motive.

    What a bunch of bullshit. Assistant Sheriff Kevin McMahill says the motive then says…”we are still looking for a motive.” Jesus Christ!!

  18. The murderous couple was fortunate to have perhaps the most. stupid. neighbor. ever.:

    “In retrospect, Fielder said, she wishes she had alerted the authorities when the couple took off on foot from their Spruce St. home early Sunday with an arsenal in their red cart.

    “I should have called the cops right then. I thought he was talking outside of his neck.”

    Jerad Miller had two guns and “all kinds of ammunition,” Fielder said. His wife carried a .38 caliber handgun in her purse and also had an AR-1 rifle, she said.”

  19. Geezer says:

    Or maybe the neighbor is from Texas, where people load up like that for lunch at Chili’s.

  20. The ‘All You Can Shoot’ Buffet.

  21. Geezer says:

    You kill it, you bought it.

  22. puck says:

    The ironic thing is, there is bona fide tyranny to be found in Las Vegas, as there is in many communities. But these morons seem to be driven by stupider stuff. I suppose they have a manifesto too, like any good maniac these days.
