Judge: Accused milita members can get bond

Nine people federal prosecutors say belong to a "Christian warrior" militia can be released on bond until the criminal charges against them are resolved, a judge has ruled.

A federal grand jury has indicted the nine on charges of seditious conspiracy, attempted use of weapons of mass destruction, teaching the use of explosive materials and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence.

    Everyone should go on youtube and look up the omega project codes!!! and if there was an "undercover" fbi agent put in a group of idk tea party activist which are anti government protesters... do you think they might get some negative talk about government officials!!! just like if you put an fbi agent in with the KKK and brought up idk President Obama.... how do you think that convo would go?

    If they were black, they would've made bail sooner....after Al Sharpton screamed racism...while these guys are radical, they do raise the excellent position that the country's sick and tired of the liberal loons in this administration.

    What this judge has no name? How are the people of going to know weather to vote for him or not? If any one of these anarchists decides to gain possession of a firearm and kills someone the judge who ordered this bond will have to move to another country.

    OMG people. Can you not read between the lines? Turn off American Idol, Survivor, and Deal or No Deal and pay attention. They were bonded out, because they were lucky enough to find an honest judge. Follow this case – you'll see that nothing will come of these outrageous charges – and the judge knows it.

    Dave – Federal judges are appointed; they do not run for their position as a politicians does.

    If the prosecutor had any evidence she should have presented it, she doesn't, she didn't, the judge did the right thing,

    Given the history of oppression, crime, extortion, murder, etc. , that so-called "law enforcement" personnel have all over the US, they should be the ones whom sit in durance vile, not innocent persons who seek to keep the evil of dictatorship at bay.

    to the edge, ur an idiot, how about that for free speech. This isnt a victory for free speech, its a victory for homegrown terrorists and terrorists in general. I look at this as precedent that you can actively plan to commit acts of terrorism and post bond. Al Qaeda plans attacks in Afghanistan and we kill them; we make plans IN the US to blow us up and we bond you out. What does that say? Al Qaeda should just move in the US and then they'll be able to sit and plan as they may please.

    and you cannot speak to the fact that there is not a lot of evidence/information. If that's the case then the case needs to be thrown out. They obviously have enough information to proceed w/ the trial, so you have to ask yourselves if these people are safe to be with the public. People who plan to blow up the enforcers of public law are generally thought to not be safe people.

  13. xenotoxin is an idiot

    this is even more a fit than to the edge is an idiot. innocent persons who seeks to keep the evil of dictatorship at bay? 1) those innocent people wanted to blow up unexpecting police officers, u may not like some, but some are good people, which by very nature means those "innocent persons" are attacking good people. 2) the police have always been they way they've been, which means either you dont like it and you need to leave the damn country or it means you just came here in which you still need to leave the damn country. How you even get the nerve to say someone who plans to blow people up is innocent is astonishing. You are a complete moron
