In 2010, Walt wrote the following:
Therein was created the necessity and authority to conduct PETTWAY’s Citizen arrest. Intent to carry out a series of Citizens’ arrest was made in writing to local law enforcement in early March 2010 (click here).
Darren Huff was traveling to Madisonville, Tennessee on 20 April 2010 in support of PETTWAY’s Citizens’ arrest. Darren recognized PETTWAY’s obstruction had to be overcome in order to advance the Treason complaint naming SOETORO-OBAMA.
In support of Pettway’s citizens’ arrest… Walt is providing the necessary support for the government’s argument that Darren had the intention of getting involved in what likely would have been a criminal act.
While TN law allows one to perform a citizen’s arrest, there is no foundation for such an arrest in the case of Pettway and others. No authority existed to conduct any such citizen’s arrest and while Walt make claim necessity, he would have had a hard time supporting such claims.
Walt may have believed that Mr Pettway was violating statute, but such belief is not sufficient for a legal citizen’s arrest.
As the Court in US v Huff found
Moreover, evidence presented at trial indicated that the defendant knew or should have known that his planned actions were unlawful, despite any indication regarding lawfulness. The defendant witnessed Walter Fitzpatrick get arrested and charged for trying to execute citizen’s arrest warrants in Madisonville three weeks prior, and on April 15, 2010, the defendant told Shane Longmire and Erica Dupree that he might be killed or arrested for what he planned to do in Madisonville.
The defendant also expressed an intent consistent with what he communicated to Shane Longmire and Erica Dupree when he was stopped on the side of the road en route to Madisonville on the day of the offense. He informed law enforcement officers that he “fully intend[ed] to proceed forward with those citizen’s arrests” and that he had his “.45 because ain’t no government official gonna go peacefully.” He also informed them: “If it comes down to that I’ve got to fight you guys, I have no choice.” In addition, the defendant took his AK-47 and 300-400 rounds of ammunition with him when he traveled to Madisonville from Georgia, which was consistent with what he told Shane Longmire and Erica Dupree he would do. In light of this, the Court finds that the jury reasonably could have believed that the defendant had the intent to use a firearm in furtherance of a civil disorder when he traveled in interstate commerce on April 20, 2010, and further that the evidence preponderates in favor of the verdict.
