FBI raids Christian militia, arrests made

By KJ Mullins     Mar 29, 2010 in World
The FBI raided several areas in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio this weekend in connection to Hutaree, a Christian militia group. Seven people were arrested and are expected to make a first appearance later today in Detroit's U.S. District Court.
The warrants that were used for the raids are sealed according to FBI spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold. CNN reports that the arrests were not related to a terrorist plot.
There are conflicting reports to the number of arrests from the raids. AnnArbor.com and CNN reports that nine have been arrested and indicted. The site lists the following as having been charged with seditious conspiracy; carrying, using and possessing a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence; and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction.
David Brian Stone (RD) of Clayton, Mich.
David Brian Stone Jr. (Junior) of Adrian (the son of David Brian Stone)
Joshua Matthew Stone (Josh) of Clayton (the son of David Brian Stone)
Tina Mae Stone of Clayton (the wife of David Brian Stone)
Joshua John Clough (Azzurlin) of Blissfield
Michael David Meeks (Mikey) of Manchester Township
Thomas William Piatek of Whiting, Ind.
Khristopher T. Sickles (Pale Horse) of Sandusky, Ohio
Jacob J. Ward (Jake) of Huron, Ohio
Eight of the nine suspects are now in custody.
The raids came after threats against Islamic groups were made by militia members.
On Monday the Michiganmilitia.com states that their group condemn attacks or threats of any sort directed against our elected representatives.
The website for Hutaree offers this as to what the group is about:
Being Hutaree is to stay the Testimony of Christ alive, and follow a motto, John15:13, “Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.” We are hoping that through this website we can reach out to those who have not the word of God and those who are lost in there ideas of Christ. Many of the things Christ said would happen have happened and some things are still in the works of happening.
