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.

Probably undercover feds.
They’ll just beat the drum that the riots are caused by right wing extremist, and of course, they’ll tell you it’s Trump’s fault. Their polls must really suck bad.
What rogue FIBbie talked these mutts into doing this?
Probably the same one who was assigned to be the informant for the militia.

I guess the better question would be; what Dem pol and/or Dem money laundering organization paid the rogue FIBbie agent to create this false flag. :)
Any relation to the February 17th Martyrs Brigade of Benghazi?
Like a cankled sponsor in common?
Actually, if you look at some of these brainless FR. posts, you’ll see plenty of promises to go after lefties, and even a few “I need a new 50 inch TV” posts
Any of these guys could wander into town exercising their 2A rights, and suddenly fond themselves portrayed as “militia members look to shoot lefties and loot.”
Black militia called Not F-king Around Coalition demonstrates in GA; angered at Black Panther comparison
I can’t find the link, but the NFAC has stated it is their constitutional right to form a militia, and if Trump wins the election, to overthrow the government.
There IS a militia that goes to these “peaceful protest” riots.
They say it as though hes a card carrying member. Hence my somewhat sarcastic question.
This article was obviously written to convince people that all militia are out to kill innocent people. These people are not militia they are terrorists.
Woo hoo! Then according to the leftists and their MSM propaganda wing I was "militia" going to get a pizza tonight. Funny, I didn't harm any minorities along the way... Maybe I don't fit the narrative.
I’ve read the fox article, and the abc and cnn articles, linked below.
After a nap to sleep on it, here’s my two cents:
What better way to throw Republicans into complete confusion, eliminate all support for cops, and gain permanent subservience to Black Lies Matter than the headline that a reputed Blue Lives Matter group harmed the President touring riot damage on Tuesday? The claim that one photo on their (now down) website shows one of them dressed in blac blok and their criminal records gives the storyline away. Militias don’t dress in blac blok and they don’t have criminal records. Question is, has anyone, anyone, heard of a 417 group? Why did both waive their miranda rights when it gains them no advantage?
Read the above article between the lines, then the two below, and see what you think. Do I need more coffee?
True; so were the three who attacked Kyle; but not the stick guy and other one who backed up who Kyle didn’t shoot. IMO the focus needs to be on the criminals released and who made that happen.
Try a search for “417 militia.” I saw no hits from that except for hits from the same news story about the two criminals (emphasis on “story”) and from some street addresses that include the phrase.
The media people made it up, or the tipster made it up. They should know better. So should the feds, if they reported that part of the story without checking it out first.
“417” has been used to refer to methamphetamine made in the Ozarks, though. It’s the area code in that area. And who likes meth? Commie rioters...and maybe the Ozark crooks arrested in Kenosha.
The claim about a militia looks like it came from a commie swamp.
However, all the punks open handed carry are just peachy
Exactly. Buy by this leftist redefinition ANTIFA and BLM are "militias".
There was ONE page on a bulletin board with 4 posts on it. https://www.mymilitia.com/profile/2951-417-2nd-amendment-militia/
Criminals supporting criminals......
