Ok let’s have a look at Walt’s “commands” to the Court…
Federal Bureau of Investigation Mark A. Van Balen criminally accused Mr. Huff of being physically present armed with gun(s) at the R. Beeche Writt government building in Madisonville TN on Tuesday 20 Apri l2010. Van Balen further asserted under oath that Mr.Huff,while standing outside the R. Beeche Writt government building armed with gun(s),was thinking about using gun(s) to commit acts of violence against persons and property at that location.
Mark A. van Balen’s affidavit shows the following
On April 20, 2010, your Affiant was present in a Command Post in Madisonville, TN, where he was informed by law enforcement officers who were reporting that HUFF and several individuals were in possession of openly displayed and concealed firearms and were at the time present outside the Madison County General Sessions Court located in the Beecher Witt Government Building. Huff and numerous others had also been observed gathering at restaurants and other locations near the Madison County Courthouse. Some of these persons gathered’ outside the Courthouse appeared to be conducting surveillance on law enforcement officers, their vehicles and police observation posts, as well as the entrances to the court building.
Darren had voluntarily informed the police of the intentions:
HUFF stated to Lt. Williams that if they had enough armed people, they were going to take over the Monroe County Courthouse. Further, they planned to conduct arrests on persons named in the criminal complaint and arrest warrants that had been signed by FITZPATRICK, a copy of which HUFF provided to Lt. Williams, along with an attached business card of FITZPATRICK. There were twenty-four Federal, State and local officers listed on the complaint and arrest warrant who were charged with being declared domestic enemies of the United States engaged in treason. HUFF further stated that all of the members of the group he planned to join in Madisonville (which he believed included members of a group known as the “Oath Keepers”) had a copy of the Complaint and arrest warrants and were going to effect a citizen’s arrest.
This affidavit was used when a criminal complaint was filed in the US District Court of Eastern District of Tennessee.
Based on the foregoing, I have probable cause to believe that HUFF traveled in interstate commerce from the State of Georgia to the State of Tennessee on April 20, 2010, with intent to incite a riot at Madisonville, TN and that he transported in commerce a firearm knowing or having reason to know or intending the same would be used unlawfully in furtherance of a civil disorder, in violation of Title 18 U.S. Code Sections 2101 (a)(1) , (2) ,(3) and 231 (a)(2).
Walt believes that Mark van Balen perjured himself even though the affidavit itself paints a slightly different picture. Furthermore, the issue of Huff carrying openly or concealed was of no relevance to the criminal complaint.
- Darren had admitted to carrying firearms across state line
- Darren had admitted to being armed to conduct arrests with others who had gathered in Madisonville.
The criminal complaint resulted in a jury of his peers hearing Darren’s case and agreeing with the prosecutor.
