Affidavit says group’s strategy included Molotov cocktails, urine-filled sprayers

Almost a year to the day before the Republican National Convention began, members of a self-described anarchist group gathered to talk about ways to disrupt it, including kidnapping delegates, sabotaging air vents at the Xcel Energy Center, blocking bridges and “capturing federal buildings” in Minneapolis and St. Paul.

Unbeknownst to the group, the RNC Welcoming Committee, two police informants and an undercover investigator had infiltrated their ranks, according to an affidavit and search warrant application filed Tuesday. The informants and investigator accessed group e-mails, attended meetings, talked strategies with members and participated in camps and workshops.

The 17-page document, signed by Ramsey County District Judge Joanne Smith, laid out the evidence that led the Ramsey County Sheriff’s Department to raid a St. Paul business and three Minneapolis homes Friday night and Saturday morning.

The affidavit paints a picture of a group that recruited participants from 67 cities and was intent on creating havoc.

So much for peaceful demonstration.

And please don't call them "hippies". They are not hippies. Take it from an old hippie.

I always thought antichrist was misspelled and that it actually implied that we would fall at the hands of the Anarchist, this is a new type of evil. they have the ability to compromise years of peace negotiations and are always protected by law and housed sometimes to...I saw a vid on youtube showing the riot police allowing them to wreak havoc , possibly to justify why we need a police state.

Sorry. I saw an interview with a man and his 81 year old mother who had been doused with bleach by these "tough guys". They are nothing but punks, and I'm glad they got busted.
