III%ers Militia member sentenced for gun violation threatened to shoot Middlesex Township, Pa Police officer
According to the Middlesex Township Police Department, the incident occurred like this:
In July, as police were arresting his son, Colin Filaroski, on a drug-possession charge, Michael Filaroski threatened to shoot the police, telling them he was a member of the "Three Percent Militia" -- a self-described, far-right patriot movement that opposes government intervention, except as stated in the U.S. Constitution.
Filaroski threatened to shoot everyone involved in his son's case and had a 9-mm handgun stuck in his waist, which a felony conviction out of New Hampshire prohibits him from possessing.
A jury in December convicted him of the firearms charge, but its members were deadlocked on a charge of terroristic threats, which the prosecution ended up dismissing.
The Intelligence Project identified 623 extreme antigovernment groups that were active in 2016.
