The Militia Were Plotting to Attack Police
Seriously. Is it terrorism yet?
The Christian militia group, the one that a Tea Party site claimed as their own, that was the big story of the weekend because of reported raids by a small army of various policing forces in Michigan, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois were plotting to attack the police:
The indictment unsealed in U.S. District Court today claims that the Hutaree planned to kill an unidentified member of local law enforcement and then attack the law enforcement officers who gather in Michigan for the funeral. According to the plan, the Hutaree would attack law enforcement vehicles during the funeral procession with improvised explosive devices rigged with projectiles, which constitute weapons of mass destruction, according to the announcement by U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade.
H/T clammyc and just so you know: One of these right wing terrorists is still on the loose.
