A pair of Missouri residents connected to a militia group traveled to Kenosha, Wis., amid demonstrations over the police shooting of Jacob Blake "to loot and possibly 'pick people off,'" according to a federal criminal complaint.
Michael Karmo, 40, and Cody Smith, 33, both of Hartville, Mo., were arrested Tuesday at a hotel in Kenosha County on federal charges of illegal possession of firearms. Both men are barred from possessing firearms because of past criminal convictions.
Karmo has prior convictions for vehicle theft, evading a peace officer resulting in injury or death and burglary, among other crimes. Smith has a domestic battery conviction.
According to the complaint, the Kenosha Police Department informed the FBI that a law enforcement agency in Iowa received a tip that the pair were traveling to the city with firearms. The FBI obtained messages between Karmo and the tipster, some of which showed Karmo posing with what appeared to be a rifle and drum-style magazine, the complaint said.

If this gets legs, someone will braid them, white supremacists. Count on the lie
Sounds like Auntie-Fa to me.
What militia, antifa?
They used that title specifically to confuse people. BLM and Antifa never call themselves a militia. Only people on the right get called militia.
Intercepted messages, eh? But they can’t zero in on Antifa and Burn-Loot-Murder.
Exactly. Intentionally misleading.
They’re still trying to blame the rioting on white supremacists, or white nationalists, or whatever..
Well, it’s the FBI involved here. It’s all white supremacists.
What militia do these two belong to?
The article claims they belong to the 417 second amendment militia in Missouri.
yup!...The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: “A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” ...
You don’t have to belong to “a militia”. The militia is comprised of all able-bodied people between 17 and 45 who are not part of the active duty forces or the reserves.
The ANTIFA milita.
wait what? I’m not part of the militia? That’s ageism.
I can’t recall a single antifa Democrat being arrested on this type of federal charge despite thousands of them crossing state lines to commit their crimes.
Given those crimes, we’re talking your typical progressive never had any talent or ability dork here. Militia, my Obamahole.
Sorry old guy;^)
A militia would NEVER have those type of members. The militia is to STOP those type of people.
