For anyone that doesn't know "the Minutemen" are a private group of volunteers that plan patrolling the Mexico Arizona border from spring.
They have no official training and some may carry guns. About 500 have volunteered to do this.
Is this a good thing or is it too open to abuse from "fanatics" that just wish to use a few illegal immigrants for target practice?
There are already civilian groups that help border patrols however so far they have tended to be small groups that monitor rather than enforce.
