Conspiracy charges dropped against Mich. militia

updated 3/27/2012 5:02:18 PM ET

DETROIT — A federal judge dismissed the most serious charges Tuesday against seven members of a Michigan militia who were rounded up as homegrown extremists accused of plotting war against the U.S., saying their expressed hatred of law enforcement didn't amount to conspiracy against the government.

The decision is an embarrassment for the government, which secretly planted an informant and an FBI agent inside the Hutaree militia four years ago and claimed members were armed for war in rural southern Michigan.

U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts granted requests for acquittal on the most serious charges: conspiring to commit sedition, or rebellion, against the U.S. and conspiring to use weapons of mass destruction. Other weapons crimes tied to the alleged conspiracies also were dismissed.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

They only attack if you attack them

which is likely to happen after the financial collapse when the dollar is rejected as world reserve currency and US can no longer borrow money.

Who prefers Law Enforcers over Peace Officers?

Who prefers Law Enforcers over Peace Officers? Especially when one can be 'breaking' the Law when they have not infringed upon anyone else's property, rights, or Life?

It is our governments that are 'breaking' the Law. The Rule of Law. Arbitrary Law (aka Majority Rule) is uncivilized. A Majority cannot, under the Rule of Law, break the Law. They can under Majority Rule, we see it everyday. ObamaCare, NDAA, and just about every one of the 500+ Federal Agencies are outside the Rule of Law.

We must have a measure for what is Lawful and Unlawful. We must be able to predict how our elected and appointed government can/will coerce us.

Why would any sane and capable person consent to the Madness that we observe Everyday?

Strike one up for the Militia

Nice to see the Feds crawling back into their cave.

"No army can stop an idea whose time has come"

yup, they NEVER had a case!

they did it to rile up Tea Party + Militia + Judge Rolls/Giffords shooting = a cause célèbre to get domestic police state and just your everyday partisan wedge going.

I posted this earlier. We on the same wavelength, Bob.o)


this sums up Holder & the Feds pretty well:

Trumped up charges exposed.

Are there any pictures

Maybe people should know what an undercover snitch looks like.
