Feds Raid Militia Group in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio
I thought the militias were in Northern Michigan (which made me think of this Kid Rock song from his Rock and Roll Jesus album), but it appears they are also in Ann Arbor and Southern/Southeastern Michigan. The feds were busy doing raids this weekend.
Seven people were arrested, some on gun charges. One group assumes the target of the militias is American Muslims. [More...]
Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said he was told that the Christian militia group may have been plotting against American Muslims.
"We salute the FBI for breaking up a militia that was seeking to harm American Muslims," Walid said.
Also along on the raids: Homeland Security. Those arrested will appear in court tomorrow. Right now, all documents are sealed.
