III Percenters: A Threat to Society?

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Events involving right-wing militia-like groups that believe in the protection of Constitutional rights have been gaining increased attention across the country. These militia-like groups call themselves “III Percenters,” which stems from the concept that during the American Revolutionary War, only three percent of the colonists raised arms and fought against British forces. The III Percenter groups tend to be heavily armed, and have the appearance of being paramilitary, as they arrive to rallies and protests in tactical gear, camouflage, and brandishing weapons. This research will examine the questions of whether these III percenter groups are a threat to society, and if the reported violence associated with these groups has been carried out in the name of III percenter ideology or by non-affiliated individuals claiming III percenter membership. Since there are not many cases associated with this group, this study will take a case study approach. Open sources and other documents will be utilized to compile information on the violence in which these groups are involved to determine the threat level imposed by III percenters.
