Alaska Militia Leader Schaeffer Cox Gets 25-Year Prison Term

It’s called “terrorism”, by the way:

The youthful head of a self-styled Alaska militia that collected firearms and grenades and talked of killing judges and government employees was sentenced Tuesday to more than 25 years in prison, despite his lawyer’s claim that he suffered from paranoid delusions.

Prosecutors had sought 35 years for Schaeffer Cox, who had gained a following in far-right circles across the West with his message that the government had strayed from its constitutional authority. Secretly he and his followers began accumulating weaponry and plotting retribution.
