Federal authorities plan to unseal charges Monday against several people arrested in a series of weekend raids in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana, prosecutors in Detroit said Sunday.

At least seven people were arrested on charges that were under seal over the weeekend, a law enforcement source said Sunday.

The FBI would disclose no details of the raids, but the law enforcement source told CNN the arrests were unrelated to any terrorist plot. The source said the suspects were not planning attacks against government targets and the raids were unrelated to recent threats against members of Congress.

    It is very scary the types of things that people do in the name of God, Jesus, Allah, religion! It makes no sense to believe in the doctrines of religion and behave in those ways!!!

    Take that you right wing crazies – and I hope to see more of this. They should arrest that traitor Glenn Beck too. It might be time to form left-wing para-military groups to protect Democrats from right wing crazies who can't win at the polls so they want to try their hand at winning with a gun.

    I'm quite proud of our president.

    This week was incredible, the workings of education reform, the health care bill, the Jobs bill, nuclear arms reduction treaty with Russia, the filling of all 15 vacant seats, a surprise visit to Afghanistan this morning and cap it off with a Federal raids around the country on a certain misguided militia that was up to no good.

    One hell of a week indeed.

    You can't blame the whole right wing for the acts of a few.

    While I don't blame the whole right wing for the acts of a few, I do hold the right wing responsible for not denouncing the actions of those few and taking action to curb their violence and public outbursts of hatred and intolerance.

    Right because we civilized conservatives and liberals have to defend ourselves against the ignorant minority of either side. Way to perpetuate the ignorance.
