American Taliban Plot to Mass Murder Police

29 Mar

Another right wing group, another Domestic Terror plot.

The “Hutaree” might best be described as the American Taliban, a “christian” fundamentalist, anti-government militia planning to murder government officials. Per research done by the SPLC, these groups are on the rise in the US – fed in no small part by right wing TV and radio personalities own brand of extremism and hate.

Suspected Militiamen Charged With Plotting to Kill Officers

Nine alleged members of a Michigan-based Christian militia group were indicted by a federal grand jury in Detroit in an alleged 17-month plot to attack and kill local, state and federal law enforcement officials.

On the heels of weekend raids in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, the FBI unsealed an indictment today revealing charges of seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction and teaching the use of explosive materials. The charges were filed against nine alleged members of the Hutaree militia, which writes on its Web site that it is preparing for battle with the anti-Christ.

The indictment also charges all the defendants with carrying a firearm during a violent crime on at least one separate occasion.

According to the FBI and the Michigan U.S. attorney’s office, the defendants planned to “kill an unidentified member of local law enforcement and then attack the law enforcement officers who gather in Michigan for the funeral,” using improvised explosive devices (IEDs), which are considered weapons of mass destruction.

The indictment said the plan, allegedly hatched in August 2008, was to take place next month.

“Because the Hutaree had planned a covert reconnaissance operation for April which had the potential of placing an unsuspecting member of the public at risk, the safety of the public and of the law enforcement community demanded intervention at this time,” said U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade.

The defendants include a family of four: David Brian Stone, 45; his wife, Tina Stone, 44; his son, Joshua Matthew Stone, 21, of Clayton, Mich.; and his other son, David Brian Stone Jr., 19, of Adrian, Mich.

Also charged in the five-count indictment were Joshua Clough, 28, of Blissfield, Mich.; Michael Meeks, 40, of Manchester, Mich.; Thomas Piatek, 46, of Whiting, Ind.; Kristopher Sickles, 27, of Sandusky, Ohio; and Jacob Ward, 33, of Huron, Ohio.

If convicted, the nine could get maximum sentences of life in prison.

    well dayyum…, that kinda puts those vagos narco-insurgents in Hemet CA to shame, now don’t it?

    I wonder if these cats will – with their IED scheme and all – meet the criteria to be labeled “terrorists”? Or was this just another misunderstood tidbit of organized criminal conspiracy that fell afoul of the long arm of the law?

    Lastly – do you think these misunderstood but rightfully indignant patriots were set up?

      Looks like the American Hutaree Taliban had a lot of material help from other Militias in the area – even if those other Militias didn’t share anything in common but boy-boy bonding next to a camp fire over guns and camo gear.

      I’m betting these guys were too whacked out to even be Tea Baggers, so I doubt they were associated with any political group.

      They were probably turned in by one of the other Militias. Militia types don’t like feds, but killing the local gendarme is a whole different issue. Lastly, killing 20 or 30 street cops at a funeral would have ramifications that would shut down the whole right wing funny farm. So I think somebody from one of the other Groups …

      Snitched.
