(ANNARBOR.COM) — The FBI conducted raids Saturday night in Washtenaw County and the Lenawee County area in an investigation involving members of Hutaree, a Christian-oriented militia group based in Lenawee County, AnnArbor.com has learned.
The nature of those raids has not been made public. FBI Special Agent Jason Pack, who is based in Washington, D.C., said he did not know how many people were taken into custody. Gina Balaya, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Detroit, could not be reached today.
PID COMMENT: The only ‘cross’ Christians should lift up is the one at Calvary, not the ‘cross-hairs’ of a rifle site. Don’t fall into the trap of self-reliance. That being said, make note of this story…it could play again and again if anything happens to Obama. It’s part of a meme that’s been repeated for the past couple of years. Angry white Christians–the Tea Party Movement is being presented as a sort of political cousin to such groups.
