Michigan, Apr 19, (THAINDIAN NEWS) According to the police, a man from Ohio has been charged with the accusation of plotting to overthrow the government, which they assume is the working of a Christian militia group. However, the man has denied any such charge, saying that although he had been affiliated with the Christian militia group, he was contemplating severing ties with them, and that he regretted not having done that already. At present, he is being held in the custody of the federal prosecutors, in Sanilac County in Michigan. He has, however, declined staunchly having heard anything about any such plans.
The man, Kristopher Sickles, is 27 years old, and hails from Ohio. He admitted that once he had been a staunch member of the militia group, but also said that he had later distanced himself. While he was a part of the group, however, he had not heard any such plan taking place, he said, not in a concrete fashion at least. However, he did admit that he had heard such plans taking place in an offhand manner.
Kristopher Sickles said that all that he knew of the plan was enough to make him decide to step away from the operation, claiming that he never had, and did not intend to, hurt anyone. He elaborated that the plan involved something about killing anyone who came in its way, that is, anyone who stumbled upon too much information or anyone who refused to go along with the plans, and a two session training was being imparted. However, he said that he did not know any inside information because he had not, ultimately, attended the training sessions.
