Does anyone think the Minute Men are criminals?
I try posting questions that let people give both sides.I've posted similar questions as this concerning La Raza.Now it's the Minute Mens turn. I also don't thumbs down answers if they are respectful and don't call me or anyone names.I like adult conversations and polite debate.How else will we learn? Dar I think you should click on my profile and take a look at my questions.ALL of them. Dar LOL no, no ones using my account.I just read everything I can that concerns me as a citizen.So I try to read up on groups I hear about on here and the news.Sometimes I find out they have been misquoted and such so I like to find information on them.I really haven't read much on the Minute Men so wanted some input.

I do know when they came to my border city, our mayor, city counsel and border patrol asked them to leave...I suppose... More

I don't like La Raza or Minute Men. I do think both of them are a bit off when it comes to what they believe.

your question is so confusing i have no idea the only reply i think of to this is a minute man in the bed room. the only crime is the eprson who deals with people like that!

I don't think they have committed any crimes. We allow protests in this country and as far as I see it...they are protesting against people sneaking across our borders illegally.

Not until they become 15 minute men. One minute isn't long enough.

They are the only ones with the courage to do what we all should be doing.

I don't think so. Their just doing what the federal government refuses to do. If the govt just did their job and enforce the immigration laws, there wouldn't be organizations like the Minute Men.

What crime has the minute men committed? All they do is watch the border and report the invaders to the Border Patrol. No one can provide even one incident where the Minute men have committed a crime. Whereas the illegal aliens commit crimes.

No, I am a member, and I am legal in everrything I do. Your problem with that is...???? Yes, I'm a Minuteman... Now let's describe what I've done that's illegal... LOL

Yes they are criminals. They are vigilantes hunting a specific group of people....Mexicans! And I can bet a million $$$ that some of them are members of the KKK.

Desperate times call for desperate measures. If the government FOR the people won't do squat, then the government OF the people need to step up. The Minute Men did just that!

You will get mant thumbs down and many attacks on this board if you are in any way shape or form in favor of Immigrants.. I think that Minutemen have a right to do what they choose as long as they dont carry guns and shoot Mexicans!

The Minute Men are upholding the law. They are doing the work our government won't do.
Answered By: sassyk - 6/2/2007
Of course they are not criminals. They are simply doing the job that Govt. will not.California spent 9 Billion dollars last year alone on services for illegal aliens. Dont you think that money would be better spent on american citizens?
Answered By: kevin t - 6/2/2007
The Minute men are my Heroes and I would live to join their group to enforce American Laws. So you are a member of the mInute men please post how we can get on board. The Minute Men donot put their hands on the illegals they spot them then they call the border patrols and the border patrols arrest the illegals. So... More
