"Huff said he was ready to die for his rights. Huff (said) that if necessary, they would come back and have a lot more armed people to take over the courthouse and effect all the arrests."
Jamie Satterfield details this entire bizarre episode in today's Knoxville News Sentinel. According to the article, Huff wasn't making up any of this. About 20 extremists did stalk around Sweetwater with guns for a while threatening to make "citizens' arrests," but they were outnumbered by law officers who shut down the courthouse and sent the workers home.
Huff, who faces arraignment today on federal charges, lives in Georgia. He owns a handgun carry permit. He was going to the state border to do something about Obama. Sounds close to what Zach Wamp has been vowing to do at every stop in his campaign for governor, doesn't it?
