Militia Leader Held Without Bail

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - A man arrested by federal agents during a crackdown on illegal weapons is a leader of the Militia of Washington County.

Hollis Wayne Fincher, 60, was arrested Wednesday in a raid by Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents for alleged possession, manufacture and transfer of machine guns.

Fincher is a lieutenant commander of the militia group, which has a headquarters south of Fayetteville. Fincher was being held in the Sebastian County jail without bail pending a detention hearing, which is set for 1:30 p.m. Monday in U.S. District Court in Fort Smith.

On what basis is he being held without bail? Are they afraid he's going to use all those mg's now? This seems to be another part of the "silver bullet" - being held without bail for unjust cause only strengthens the case for Fincher if it goes to SCOTUS

In this age of sealed warrants and affidavits of probable cause, it's impossible to tell.
