Jones County Paramilitary Meeting

The group that wants to set up a private security firm in Jones County met with residents Monday.

Tier 1 Group says it wants to build a paramilitary facility near Hofmann Forest. But some Jones County residents don't want it there, concerned their backyard will be turned into a war zone.

Tier 1 wants to purchase five hundred acres and build a facility to be used for government training only. The company is answering questions from the public right now.

    Is Tier 1 Group really building a site for paramilitary training? It sounds like they are building a site to support the troops not to train the local "hee-haw" hunters how fight a war.
