The Federal Authorities have raided not only our group but also the Michigan Militia. They have hijacked their website and placed word there that they were not raided. We need some help please. This has to stop. I am enroute south with my children using the wifi’s as I can. They were catching others as they came to their rallying points, they broke into homes and took children and used the tasers on wives, my son who is 12 and I got out by crawling through the creeks behind our house. My husband and others are taken, please call the press and tell them, if any in the Michigan Militia is still free please rally with them. Please help.

Today at about 6:20 AM militia groups were raided this morning in multiple states. Ohio, Michigan, and reports of activity in North Carolina and Oklahoma. Road blocks confirmed in North Carolina and Ohio. Search warrants were obtained. Seven people involved were arrested near the Ohio boarder. Militias are on highest alert, some have been deployed.
Mike Lackomar, of Michiganmilitia.com, said both The Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia and the Michiganmilitia.com were not a part of the raid.
Lackomar said he heard from other militia members that the FBI targeted the Hutaree after its members made threats of violence against Islamic organizations.
"Last night and into today the FBI conducted a raid against homes belonging to the Hutaree. They are a religious cult. They are not part of our militia community," he said.
Dawud Walid, executive director of the Council on Islamic-American Relations of Michigan, made an announcement Sunday during the group's 10th anniversary banquet about receiving a call from a network journalist about the alleged threat against Muslims.
"Don't allow this news to scare you away from practicing your faith," said Walid.
Audible gaps were heard throughout the banquet hall when the news was announced. Walid said he will call local authorities about more information on the allegations. He urged local Muslims to recommitt themselves to their faith in light of the accusations.
FBI agents removed boxes of evidence and at least two dogs "trained to do bodily harm" from a house they raided over the weekend in Whiting, Indiana, according to a witness
Agents carried away several boxes from the home, according to the witness, an employee at Gusto's Pizza, which is located directly adjacent to the raided property. Two of three dogs were also removed from the property. The dogs were "aggressive" and had been "trained to do bodily harm."
The target of the raid, a caucasian man, lived at the property with his brother, according to the witness. The brothers lived there for at least six years, he said.
The FBI agents told employees of Gusto's Pizza to remain indoors during the operation, and would not let delivery men in or out of the building. At least one FBI agent mentioned bomb-making materials and firearms were part of the raid.
A resident of the street, reached for comment, said he was told "not to say anything" and would not corroborate the witnesses claims.
