Members of a Michigan militia, who were acquitted last year of trying to overthrow the federal government and murder police officers, are suing the FBI and Michigan State Police, saying feds violated their constitutional rights by raiding their homes and seizing their guns, the Detroit Free Press reports.

The March 27 lawsuit was filed by the Hutaree, a militia that believed the Antichrist, possibly President Obama, is leading the country. The goal is to create a “Colonial Christian Republic.”

The raids in March 2010 led to numerous charges but each defendant was acquitted.

During the raid, agents seized more than 40 guns and 100,000 of ammunition.

Evan Castle picked the wrong place to grope a woman’s butt.

Since the 24-year-old is accused of committing the crime aboard an airline flight, the incident is being investigated by the FBI, a U.S. Attorney and federal special agents, Fox 31 Denver reports.

According to Fox 31, Castle was sexually harassing two flight attendants before he grabbed their butts.

ATF Seeks Mega Database to Consolidate Personal Information About Suspects

The ATF is hoping to acquire a mega database that would allow agents to quickly draw connections between suspects’ names, phone numbers, social security numbers and utility bills, the Huffington Post reports.

As it is, agents must analyze data largely by hand because the information is stored in separate locations, consuming time that could be spent investigating the suspects.

ATF is seeking proposals for “a massive online data repository system,” Huffington Post reported.

The idea is to drastically reduce the amount of time it takes to track down data on suspects.

ATF Official: Detroit’s Violent Criminals Are a “Throwback”

Daryl McCrary

Deadline Detroit

DETROIT — Daryl McCrary is no stranger to the world of violence.

Having spent 21 years with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) he’s worked in places like Los Angeles and Baltimore. He’s gone undercover, he’s bought guns on the street and investigated gangs and violent crime.

As acting head of ATF in Detroit since October, McCrary says Detroit is as violent as any city in America, and more violent than many.

He says while he’s seen criminals in other cities modify their activity to try and avoid detection — and ultimately prison — Detroit criminals haven’t really bent much. He calls them “prideful” when it comes to street survival.

“Drive-by shootings. Home invasions. Aggravated assaults. I see a lot of things that I consider to be a throwback” to the old days.

No better example of the dangers in the city was the shootout last week between members of an ATF task force and a murder suspect they were trying to arrest near Linwood and Hooker on the city’s west side. The task force boxed in the suspect’s car. When officers approached, the suspect opened fire. One Detroit police officer on the task force was shot twice in the leg. Another Detroit cop on the task force suffered what was first thought to be gunshot wounds to the head.

But Deadline Detroit reported Sunday night that the officer may have actually been hit in the head by metal fragments, perhaps from a car, that came from a bullet striking the vehicle. The officer remains hospitalized. The suspect, Matthew Joseph, 23, was killed in the shootout.
