Miller’s private security team seen on video

MILLER’S PRIVATE SECURITY TEAM SEEN ON VIDEO…. Following up on a couple of earlier items, there’s now some video available from the Anchorage Daily News of extremist Senate candidate Joe Miller’s (R) event at an Alaska middle school yesterday.

There is, as of now, no footage of Miller’s private security force “arresting” Alaska Dispatch editor Tony Hopfinger after he asked Miller about allegations of professional misconduct, but this video was apparently taken soon after.

Pay particular attention to the man who refused to identify himself, but who threatened a Daily News reporter with “arrest.”
