    Update: 2 Militia Members Sue Authorities Over 2010 Raids

    Two members of a Michigan-based militia acquitted last year of plotting to overthrow the U.S. government have filed a federal lawsuit against three FBI agents and a state police trooper.

    Michael Meeks of Manchester and Thomas Piatek of Whiting, Ind., say their constitutional rights were violated during raids on their homes in 2010.

    The two Hutaree (hoo-TAR'-ee) members as well as three members of Meeks' family filed the lawsuit late last month in U.S. District Court in Detroit.

    good I hope they win
    Insanity should be defined as trusting the government to solve a problem they caused in the first place. Please do not go insane!

    I have a question about the legality of plotting to overthrow the government.

    If according to the Declaration of Independence:
    That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
    It is the right of the people to alter or abolish any form of government that is destructive of their exercising their unalienable rights, how can the government make it illegal for them to do so?
