On Tuesday, the Kenosha Police Department advised FBI that a law enforcement agency in Iowa had received a tip that Karmo and an unidentified male were in possession of firearms and traveling from Missouri to Kenosha to loot and “possibly pick people off.”
fter receiving consent to search Karmo and Smith’s vehicle and hotel room, FBI agents recovered an Armory AR-15 assault rifle, a Mossberg 500 AB 12-Gauge shotgun, two handguns, a silencer, ammunition, body armor, a drone, and other materials.
In interviews with federal agents, Smith reportedly indicated that he and Karmo traveled to Kenosha to take part in rallies for President Donald Trump
We went to one of the protests here. The whole event was peaceful and well organized. The next day a substantial part of the media coverage was about all the efforts by the authorities and the extra police brought in to manage the event in case it turned violent. The town even paid for a helicopter and the Governor was here to make sure an obviously peaceful event would remain so which received more media attention then the people on the street demanding that they simply be allowed to live through a traffic stop. Even when there is no confrontation the focus is on what would have happened had there been any.This isn’t surprising to anyone who has taken part in protests. Hours of peaceful marching/sitting/chanting and a tiny problematic area at the end and that is what will be posted the next day.
The brutality is no longer due to just the cops, but also fascist "militiamen."
