USA --(Ammoland.com)- “A federal judge acquitted seven members of the Hutaree militia Tuesday of the most serious charges following six weeks of testimony in a high-profile terror case,” The Detroit News reported yesterday.

On the second anniversary of the Hutaree arrests, U.S. District Judge Victoria Roberts granted a defense motion to acquit the militia members on seven charges, including seditious conspiracy and conspiracy to use weapons of mass destruction.

Still open are some weapons charges “against Hutaree leader David Stone Sr. and his son.”

It’s a stunning defeat for Attorney General Eric Holder’s Justice Department, which made great media hay of the danger the group posed when their FBI raid and arrests were announced. The conflationists were quick to tar all conservatives with the charge of being violent extremist haters, with Media Matters slapping at predictable punching bags Glenn Beck and Fox News. And also immediately exploiting the situation for maximum effect and without any consideration for fact-checking: the gungrabbers, as Kurt Hofmann reported back in March of 2010.

That the case was problematic became apparent early on. I cautioned Trigger Sports Live! viewers to remember that the suspects—in spite of what was being reported and the disturbingly-titled “Evil Jews” forum section on their website notwithstanding—were innocent until proven guilty, and that we needed to wait and see what facts would be established (see sidebar media player).
