Please go there and view the exclusive Fox News video of the interview with John Karriman of Missouri Oath Keepers.

From that article, a few “teaser lines”. Please read whole article at above link.

Quoting from article:

Oath Keepers Missouri state leader John Karriman joined “Fox and Friends” this morning and said the Oath Keepers are volunteers that come from first responder backgrounds.

“They’re the individuals that put themselves in harm’s way to keep others safe,” he said.

Karriman explained that since they are all volunteers and unpaid, the police department’s complaint that they did not obtain a license for providing security is unsound….

…. But why do all this? Doocy asked.

“That’s what we do. While others run from danger, we run into it. It’s a part of who we are. That’s how we’re wired.” — John Karriman

Note from Stewart Rhodes, Founder and President of Oath Keepers:

As retired police officer and Missouri police academy instructor John Karriman said, we will not, and did not, stop protecting the buildings and people we had promised to protect. We were there the very next night after being told to stop, and we have been there every night since.

And we will continue to be there until calm is restored and we are no longer needed. Refer to our attorney’s letter to St. Louis County Police Chief Jon Belmar :

We still fully support the rights of PEACEFUL protesters, but we also feel obligated to help protect the community from the violent looters, shooter, and burners, the provocateurs, and the racists who are trying to turn this into a race war. This is not about race. Not for us.

It’s about rights. And it is critical that we not leave fellow Americans defenseless while politicians play their games and fail to do their duty.

For the Republic,
Stewart Rhodes
Founder and President of Oath Keepers

We The People do NOT need and Permission from anyone – especially some Corporate Cop who has no clue about laws.

This country has really gone to shit.

Isn’t everyone tired of being told and FORCED to have a License for every damn thing?
