Could be these guys were gearing up to do something "about it".

I know CRASH unit here in LA often raid various locations to prevent a planned spree.

Could be they picked up on something via the FISA infrastructure, emails, social networking profile kites, phone calls...

What do you think?

I am sure, that would be my guess.

I live in Washtenaw County, but I just got up a little while ago. I.E. I missed the whole thing. Darn. And I live in Ann Arbor anyway, so... no militia in my immediate area (that I know of), just students. University of Michigan and all. I've heard that there is a large militia 'presence' in the surrounding rural areas... Howell etc. I wonder just how long and how closely the feds have been monitoring these groups. Perhaps this is just the beginning...

yep - no doubt about it...

This outfit may have been about to jump crazy and someone on the inside sent the word to headquarters.

It's my belief that every militia order is infiltrated and will find the same results when they get ready to jump too.

I was shocked when I found this topic over on another forum, I wasn't sure it was really happening, since our MSM chose to ignore it.

keeps us updated.

I think we need that public leak of government agents and their families to be posted around the internet which is long overdue by the way.

Yeah, my neighbor came over for coffee about an hour and a half ago and told me she saw coverage of the raids on the local news. We thought the FBI might be raiding locations in Dearborn at first (many Arab Americans live there). But then I checked out the ATS and it's the militia. First they round 'em up, take their guns, demonize them, sway public opinion even more and then come for the average Joe who may have said something against the government in college 20 years age. That's how it goes...

edit: Dearborn Brown Sugar Ham is the way to go next Sunday. Yum.

Similar thread from earlier on the front page here.

There have been TV programs about the rise of the militia movement. It was only a matter of time really.

Seven arrested in FBI raids linked to Christian militia group
Jennifer Chambers / The Detroit News

At lest seven people, including some from Michigan, have been arrested in raids by a FBI-led Joint Terrorism Task Force in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana as part of an investigation into an Adrian-based Christian militia group, a person familiar with the matter said.

The suspects are expected to make an initial appearance in U.S. District Court in Detroit on Monday.

On Sunday, the FBI confirmed that federal law enforcement agents were conducting activities in Washtenaw and Lenawee counties over the weekend in connection to Hutaree, a Christian militia group. FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold told The Detroit News the federal warrants in the case are under court seal and declined further comment.

From The Detroit News: www.detnews.com...


Sources have said the FBI was in the second day of raids around the southeastern Michigan city of Adrian that are connected to a militia group, known as the Hutaree, an Adrian-based group whose members describe themselves as Christian soldiers preparing for the arrival and battle with the anti-Christ.

WXYZ-TV reports that helicopters were spotted in the sky for much of Saturday night, and agents set up checkpoints throughout the area. Witnesses told the station that it was like a small army had descended on the area. The Department of Homeland Security and the Joint Terrorism Task Force are also involved in the raids.

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.

More form the same article,

speaking of infiltration,


One of the Hutaree members called a Michigan militia leader for assistance Saturday after federal agents had already began their raid, Lackomar said, but the militia member -- who is of Islamic decent and had heard about the threats -- declined to offer help. That Michigan militia leader is now working with federal officials to provide information on the Hutaree member for the investigation, Lackomar said Sunday.

"They are more of survivalist group and in an emergency they withdraw and stand their ground. They are actively training to be alongside Jesus," he said.
