i havent read the whole thread but if it is just a FBI thing and not DEA then it is probably organized crime related. they have to do mass raids so they dont let any big dogs get through the cracks.

I always assumed at some point the government would take some action to gain control of the illegal world. What better way then you have suggested, put in gangs with unofficial ties to the government.

The government will gain a level of informal of control of the supposed lawless aspect of our societies under belly. Well not mine, but the US

Good find if they are related to the same event. The article presented in OP was provided after that fox news article, so who knows.

Since you did not provide a quote from you source here is one.


Shortly before dawn Wednesday, federal agents conducted a series of raids across the state of Indiana as handcuffed and shackled suspects were brought to the agency’s Castleton headquarters.

Fox59 Russ McQuaid reports that the raids appeared to be part of a crackdown that U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett recently announced against organized crime in Indiana.


gee...imagine that!...orgainized crime...the FBI doing their job. is the paranoia and hatred of our government on this website, juuusstt a little too extreme? i now this will fall on deaf ears here, but there are alot of good, honest, hardworking people in our government. it seems this gets lost in the hyperbolic writings on ATS.

In my hometown, FBI only gets involved when the local police are believed to be ineffective due to conflicts of interest. Or when it is federal level investigations going on.

To be honest, we have had FBI conducting operations in my town of under 30k for over a decade. About 3 years ago one of them shot and killed a drug dealers brother (who also was a dealer...but his brother is the "kingpin") while working undercover.

Let's wait to see what they are doing before we go jumping to conclusions, I live VA, and 3 years ago there was an entire east coast raid, not just my state. They were rounding up illegal workers and the men who illegally brought them into the country. Some of those people worked for me, they didn't know they were still illegal, the company that brought to the US from Jamaica and other countries robbed them blind and falsified all their documentation.

They arrested over a 1,000 people that day or two, so not everything is a conspiracy, but let's wait and see...

I have. Lived in Indiana all my life, Indianapolis area and rural central Indiana. Organized crime is pretty common around here, if that is what you would call it. It isn't like al capone or the gati family obviously.

Indiana is called the cross roads of America for a reason, many interstate highways converge on Indianapolis, making us a hub for a lot of stuff. Guns,drugs etc...

I have seen a lot of police activity here in Plainfield ( south west side suburbs). I will provide more details if any become avvailable on local news or radio. Right now I am not seeing anything though, as would be the norm until they are done.

I just hope they don't kick down the wrong door, we have laws alowing to shoot anyone that kicks in your door, police or criminal alike. That's how we keep the local police. From kicking in the wrong doors around here. They haven't really kicked the wrong door in once since the law passed.

30 Arrested In Inmate Trafficking Investigation

This is what I found on our local news channel. Hope it helps out some.

At least 30 people have been arrested in connection with an ongoing FBI raid that may be targeting members of a white supremacist group, a source told RTV6.

What? The FBI is actually doing something? I don't believe it, I thought they only investigated high profile criminal cases where they got lots of publicity. Their policy seems to be to wait and watch till they can get enough people to arrest to get a good news splash. Meanwhile it is business as usual for criminals. Maybe forty was enough or maybe the criminals were planning to move to a different country and retire.

They are raiding members of a white supremist group based on their views?!? I don't agree with the whole white supremicy thing, but that is what it looks like so far.

Do we have actual confirmation on it being the case for ATF and the others?

I quite frankly have never heard of the FBI becoming so active openly. I do not get it, they are coming out more everyday.

My bad, if it seemed I was implying that. I just figured that when it comes to law enforcement gun running is a matter which seems specifically an ATF thing. Just like drugs would be a DEA thing.

But if this is organized crime... i.e. racketeering, state boundary crossing stuff... well then - I guess the feebies get the collar.

The Outlaws were raided last month here in Indianapolis.

ATLANTA (CBS ATLANTA) -

Early Thursday morning, the Federal Bureau of Investigation raided several locations throughout the state. A representative from the United States Department of Justice confirms indictments and a federal criminal complaint have been unsealed, charging 23 people with federal offenses.

The charges, resulting in an FBI undercover investigation, involve methamphetamine and coc aine, gun offenses, and obstructing the investigation.

probably Ron Paul sympathizers and delegates. Funny how important people somehow get their parking tickets found and becomes a serious offense at just the right time.

Without going into the thread from where I left, IMO this would have to do more with hate crimes or something to that affect, I think you are right as far as the compartmentalized duties of each individual agency. This is a sweep of another kind if FBI is involved.

Well guys,

We could continue to ponder what this is... or READ THE POST I JUST MADE!

It's about a meth/organized crime bust...

I'll post again... see if it changes anything.
