The Real REVO
This is really a pretty well written, fair article. It’s well placed as well. Many police officers don’t know about the Oathkeepers organization. This does an excellent job of describing its founder, what they stand for, and the political flak they have been taking.

The fact remained that an illegal precedent had taken place, and could well occur again; indeed, it appeared that that the seeds sown in Louisiana might not only take root, but germinate elsewhere, as well.
