Hatred Is Not The Solution
Thirteen people were charged yesterday for trying to kidnap Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer. The alleged scheme included a plan to overthrow state government.
The people believed that the state government is violating the U.S. Constitution.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced that six people were charged federally with conspiracy to kidnap and seven other people associated with the militia group face other charges.
Governor Whitmer said in a news conference that she knew her job would be hard, but she said to be honest, she never could have imagined anything like this. She especially blamed President Trump, who has repeatedly declined to condemn far-right groups, for the action.
According to the complaint, the group discussed their members crashing into the Michigan Capitol building in Lansing and taking hostages and murdering “tyrants,” including Governor Whitmer.
Recently the FBI became aware of the group’s plans through a social media group of individuals that were discussing the violent overthrow of a certain government. Because of the complexity of the operation and the dangerous suspects involved, the FBI needed to mobilize their resources to execute either search warrants or arrest warrants at a dozen separate sites.
We are very sad that the country has to worry about these criminal activities that could have damaged the coming election and the national security.
Hatred is not the solution for our society.
