Mike Raines http://michiganradio.org en Commentary: Who will guard the guardians? http://michiganradio.org/post/commentary-who-will-guard-guardians <p>Shortly before Michigan’s statewide primary six weeks ago, I began to hear from people who had concerns about the sheriff in Eaton County, which is suburban and rural and just west of Lansing.</p><p>They told me the sheriff Mike Raines was putting together some kind of armed militia group and had scary ideas about the meaning of the U.S. Constitution.</p><p>Frankly, I didn’t pay a lot of attention. Journalists are always hearing sensational charges just days before an election. Eaton County has about a hundred thousand people, I’ve often been there and didn’t notice any nutty behavior.</p> Mon, 17 Sep 2012 12:38:17 +0000 Jack Lessenberry 9111 at http://michiganradio.org Commentary: Who will guard the guardians?
