Jersey City police brass identify a pro-militia clique in the department and say they’ve been stopped

A clique of officers who calls themselves “Three-Percenters” in the Jersey City Police Department’s Emergency Services Unit sprouted about two years ago, officials have told The Jersey Journal.

“They were separating themselves from the others in the unit and we put a stop to it immediately,” Jersey City Police Deputy Chief Peter Nalbach said.  

The deputy chief said there were officers who were disciplined over the matter.

Three-percenters are an “anti-government extremist” movement that has grown since President Barack Obama took office, according to the Anti Defamation League, a nonprofit that combats what it believes to be anti-Semitism and bigotry.

The three-percent movement promotes the idea that the federal government is plotting to take away the rights of American citizens and must be resisted, the ADL says on its website.

The three-percenters apparently get their name from the notion that 3 percent of American colonists took up arms against the British crown during the Revolutionary War, according to the Three Percenter’s Club on Facebook, which has more than 17,500 followers.

“The (three-percenter) honors and is sworn to uphold and enforce the Constitution of the United States of America… (Three-percenters) are soldiers who have sworn to defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic,” the groups says on its “About” page.

Followers sometimes call themselves “Oath Keepers” and associate with self-described pro-militia “patriot” groups that support gun rights and “engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing,” including the idea that the Sept. 11, 2011, terrorist attacks were perpetrated by the federal government, according to the nonprofit Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups.

It was not clear if the disciplined officers belonged to any particular three-percent group.

An anonymous letter sent to The Jersey Journal says that some ESU officers wore a patch saying “ONE OF THE 3 %” and the letter includes a picture of a patch. The letter also says some official ESU patches were altered by adding “3%” to them. The letter also includes a picture of such a patch.

Finally, the letter includes a patch with the image of a skull and says ESU officers wore the skull patch and Three-Percenters patches while on patrol.

Nalbach confirmed that officers were wearing a patch and said “It was removed because we don’t allow unofficial patches.”

The letter also includes an image of a Three-Percenters flag and said it was hung in the ESU gym. Nalbach said he was not aware of a flag.

    1. I agree. This smells like propaganda in order to try and discourage other militia members from forming and to try and show a strong force that the government will not back down from the militias. It’s bullshit. Don’t fall for it. Especially when a group of cops are forming it. This is just another form of psychological warfare to prevent the people from taking up arms and resisting. It’s a joke.

      To the Government I say, “WE WILL NOT BACK DOWN TO PETTY THUGS! WE CONTROL OUR LIVES, NOT YOU!! WE WILL NOT STOP! WE WILL NEVER GIVE UP! WE WILL NEVER SURRENDER TO TYRANNY! WE WILL FIGHT AGAINST YOUR COMMUNIST, CORPORATE, ZIONIST CORRUPTION AND WE THE PEOPLE SHALL PREVAIL!!!!”

      1. Small response back, there are groups within dept’s of America’s Police and Sheriff Dept’s that are on the side of the 2nd Amendment, that will stand with the People. These groups are all over the United States, and personally. I stand with them, I will fight by their side, if the need arise. Now, as far as the 3 %, I can’t be 100% sure, but I would not doubt it.

  1. ….the story is really embarrassing….as an American…it is really just silly…and so far in the extreme in terms of propaganda….could we find one more “name them and shame them” outfit..like the two mentioned in the “article”… and even if the group exists… how does one “break it up” if we are following The Constituion…and this is from “the police” …ha,ha,ha!…what a sad joke.. and if it is true….the “leadership” of the PoPo…must be peeing their pants…

  2. Wearing the patch on patrol or displaying the flag at work, wrong move. If this is a true story and not misleading propaganda, glad to hear it. Not all have fallen victim to the gov’t hype backed by Jews, Zionists or Commies. They should have kept it a secret until the time comes. Good for them. Molon Labe.

  3. So if you are a cop and loudly proclaim to uphold the paws of the land the brass disciplines you as extremists. Just wow! I’m back on moderation. have I been offensive again?

    1. Who would notice if this place was a paradise or even if there was a universe if people ceased to exist? More importantly, to whom would it matter?
      You are no longer in pending.
