    Good thing they caught these three guys. There could have been riots and domestic terror attacks committed in major US cities.

    “.... Federal prosecutors say the three white men with U.S. military experience...”

    The Pasty White Bois lol!! When did the media start identifying ‘white’ people?! Every terror related suspect or black person is not identified for days!

    The MSM will not try to affiliate anyone carrying a rifle as a ''boogaloo'' member.
    They have to demonize anyone that attempts to stop their property from being destroyed.

    I haven't been able to find a photo of suspects.

    From Article: https://abc7.com/boogaloo-las-vegas-protest-news-george-floyd/6231077/
    The anti-government "boogaloo" movement is a loose network of gun enthusiasts who often express support for overthrowing the U.S. government. Its name, a reference to a 1984 movie sequel called "Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo," is a code word for a second civil war.

    The movement is rooted in online meme culture, but the coronavirus pandemic has become a catalyst for real-world activity. Many "boogaloo" followers have shown up at COVID-19 lockdown protests armed with rifles and wearing tactical vests over Hawaiian shirts and leis, a nod to the "big luau" derivation of the movement's name.

    While some "boogaloo" promoters insist they aren't genuinely advocating for violence, law-enforcement officials say they have foiled bombing and shooting plots by people who have connections to the movement or at least used its terminology.

    J.J. MacNab, a fellow at George Washington University's Program on Extremism, said she has been poring over images from the weekend protests and spotted some "boogaloo bois" in the crowds, carrying high-powered rifles and wearing tactical gear.

    "They want to co-opt [protests] in order to start their war. They see themselves as being on the side of protesters and that the protesters themselves are useful in causing anarchy," she said

    Thousands of rioters get a walk for everything from burglary to murder, and they manage to arrest 3 white guys for talking about "terrorizing" the rioters.:upeyes:

    Plenty of finance clerks and low-speed privates on active duty, plenty of serious special operator types in the Air Force, Navy and Army Reserve. "A reservist a squid and a wingnut" doesn't tell you much. I have served with more Army and Marine Infantrymen than office types in the Army Reserve

    Careful; some of us wingnuts are pretty tough cookies out in the bush.

    I hate it when the press puts emphasis on a suspect being a veteran or service member. They try to make it seem like that is a factor when in reality, all types of people have served in the military. The majority of the 1% biker gangs (motorcycle clubs, if you will) were started by vets returning from war.
    I served with some very honorable, trustworthy soldiers and a few of slugs. Unless they were going to utilize some specialized training (Molotov cocktails ain't it), there is little relevance to their status.
