"The Rise of the Three Percenter: A Look Inside the III% Security Force Militia and their response to the Gatlinburg fire of 2016"
The rise of radical leftist violence and lawlessness on the peaceful streets of America has been met with an unprecedented rise in armed civilians who have been rapidly organizing into regulated local and state militias. The world has witnessed the alt right gaining both steam and attention with the ascension of a Donald Trump presidency and quite frankly it frightened and intrigued me.
I was given the opportunity to immerse myself in the ranks of one of the local militia arms of III% Security Force with a microphone and a camera for a week and I got to see a side of the militia that I was not aware of. I have edited together a series of video, images, and sound to present what I witnessed on the ground with them training and on mission to Gatlinburg, Tennessee.
I have attempted to present them in the way that I saw them. I hope to have communicated their passions, grievances, and activities with integrity and to tell the story of "The Rise of the Three Percenter" both honestly and dramatically.
