Business Owner Wants To Organize Militia

A local business owner wants people around the area to join a militia.  A public meeting was held Thursday evening at the Southwest branch of the library to outline the by-laws of a militia.

The business owner says he wants to better the Amarillo community. 

Eric Dingis says, "we were built on a lot of good principles - honesty, hard work, integrity, and I just hate to see those things leave this area, I really would hate to see that."

Dingis says he wants to create a militia that would be available to help in emergencies like natural disasters or in the event of an attack in the area.  He says his main goal is to protect the Constitution.

About a dozen people turned out to hear what Dingis had to say.
