I'm deleting ophion's post in the other section and moving it here. Here's what it said

A guy named Rand had done a ton of research on the Minutemen and their possible connection to the Zodiac crimes. He believes that former Minutemen leader Troy Houghton was Zodiac. Houghton disappeared before the Zodiac crimes happen. Either way, learning about both Houghton and the Minutemen has been really fascinating, and has given my a few ideas and theories of my own. I have done a lot of my own research on this organization and they definitely deserve their own thread here. So here is some basic background info on the Minutemen, and later we will discuss why Zodiac could have been a member of this group.

The Minutemen was a militant anti-Communist organization formed in the United States in the early 1960s. The founder and head of the right-wing group was Robert Bolivar DePugh, a biochemist from Norborne, Missouri. The Minutemen believed that Communism would soon take over all of America. The group armed themselves and were preparing to take back the country if necessary. The Minutemen organized themselves into small cells and stockpiled weapons for an anticipated counter-revolution.

In February 1968, DePugh was indicted by a federal grand jury in Seattle, Washington for conspiracy to commit bank robbery. Also in 1968, he was arrested for violation of federal firearms laws. He skipped bail and went underground for over a year until he was caught in 1969 in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico. He was released from prison in May 1973. DePugh later wrote a survival manual, 'Can You Survive?', and was associated briefly with Liberty Lobby.

DePugh, 86, died at home June 30, 2009.

Here is a good read on the Minutemen. Even mentions how they use a cross-hair for their logo.

I didnt know much about the minutemen so i did some studying over last few days and i can can say is wow these people were lunatics. Their idea for formation of the group is noble and commendable but the things they did were not commendable because they did a lot of broken laws and was not just 'fighting for their freedom.'

And... I don't know if this is true or not, but I did read that some CIA people infiltrated the Minutemen and became regional leaders of the group. I also read that when Robert DePugh found our he had CIA agents in his group, they forced him to go along and threatened to kill him if he did not. If true, the rotten bastards from the CIA were really running the organization. For me, that would pretty much make up my mind that the Minutemen WERE involved in the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King, and possibly Robert Kennedy.
