    Seven arrested in FBI raids linked to Christian militia group

    March 28, 2010

    The Detroit News
    At least 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, a source close to the investigation in Washington, D.C. confirmed that FBI agents were conducting activities in Washtenaw and Lenawee counties over the weekend in connection to Hutaree, a Christian militia group. Detroit FBI Special Agent Sandra Berchtold told The Detroit News the federal warrants in the case are under court seal and declined further comment.
    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.
    Lackomar said he heard from other militia members that the FBI targeted the Hutaree after its members made threats of violence against Islamic organizations.
    Mike Lackomar, of Michiganmilitia.com, said both The Southeast Michigan Volunteer Militia and the Michiganmilitia.com were not a part of the raid.
    .....Sources from the Michigan militia community said one of the FBI raids took place Saturday during a wake for a Hutaree member who had died of natural causes. A Hutaree leader was arrested during the wake while at the same time agents were conducting raids at other locations.
    Now the guilt or innocense of any of these people aside, can you imagine this happening to an Islamic group here? And then especially during a funeral?

    How about raiding a mosque? Or killing an Iman? Or mass arrests based on name and religion after 9/11... in other words you are as usual wrong.

    If you can show where I said that be my guest, but then you're being hypocritical since you haven't yet begun yourself.

    So your fake "outcry".. and trying to defacto defend Christian nutjobs is one big fail. So what if they were arrested at a funeral... they are domestic terror suspects.. you dont wait for them to be non holy ground to arrest religious nutjobs bent on killing people.

    Why are we surprised? I've never even heard of a militia group that wasn't Christian. Did someone think Christians aren't militant?

    if you wanted to discuss the article, why was your question about something else?

    you clearly want to stir things up. pass.

    'Eventually, agents arrested Larry M. Williams, a convicted felon who was wanted because of unresolved warrants, including for not registering as a sex offender.'

    "But the authorities said Mr. Abdullah, who had a lengthy criminal record and was forbidden to have a firearm, opened fire on the agents. "

    US immigration officials in Southern California have detained hundreds of Iranians and other Muslim men who turned up to register under residence laws brought in as part of the anti-terror drive.
    Reports say between 500 and 700 men were arrested in and around Los Angeles after they complied with an order to register by 16 December.
    People went down wanting to co-operate and then they were detained

    The Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) is refusing to say how many people were arrested but said detainees were being held for suspected visa violations and other offences.
    And there was plenty of outrage from the Muslims and ACLU. We'll see where the ACLU stands on this no doubt by their silence. Furthermore I don't see where the militia group broke a law.
