The leader of a Tombstone citizens' patrol group faces three misdemeanor charges after he walked armed into Coronado National Memorial near the Arizona-Mexico border Sunday.
Chris Simcox was with a companion when they walked onto National Park Service land south of Sierra Vista and were stopped by a ranger.
Simcox said the two were simply hiking, but Chief Ran-ger Thane Weigand said it appears that they were conducting a border patrol operation without permission. Since when is "conducting a border control operation without permission" a crime? I don't hear any complaints about this guy arresting people, shooting people (or even shooting AT people), or indeed, any complaints at all.
