FERGUSON, [MO]--The church attended by Michael Brown's father was burned down amid raging protests that followed a grand jury's decision not to bring criminal charges against police officer Darren Wilson. The Missouri church was one of a number of buildings which was torched during a night of mass unrest in the town, which police described as "way worse" than any of the violence which occurred in the weeks that followed following the 18-year-old's killing. While a majority of the disorder occurred in Ferguson, where Brown was shot by Wilson on 9 August, the Flood Christian Church was also attacked, despite being located three miles away in a remote location of County Club Hills. The Church's

CROWN POINT, [IN]--While most people try to be prepared for a major snowstorm, there are people who prepare for the rare events like a mass terror attack, major ebola outbreak, or even a catastrophic continental shift. ABC57 investigates the world of extreme prepping. National Geographic's Doomsday Preppers has thrust prepping into America's culture. Extreme preppers stockpile food, water and weapons to prepare for everything from national emergencies to the end of times. Preppers are everywhere. In Michiana there are Michigan Preppers and Northwest Indiana Preppers. In Crown Point, Indiana, Brad - who didn't want his last name used - is an extreme prepper.

FERGUSON, [MO]--Two men suspected of buying explosives they planned to detonate during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, once a grand jury decides the Michael Brown case, were arrested on Friday and charged with federal firearms offenses. Word of the arrests, reported by a number of media outlets Friday, came ahead of the grand jury’s widely anticipated decision on whether the white police officer who fatally shot Brown, an unarmed black teenager, should be indicted on criminal charges. The Aug. 9 slaying of 18-year-old Brown under disputed circumstances became a flashpoint for U.S. racial tensions, triggering weeks of sometimes violent protests in the St. Louis suburb by demonstrators calli

TALLAHASEE, [FL]--Tallahassee Police Officer Scott Angulo hugged residents along Caracus Court on Sunday, sobbing as he stopped to talk in the driveway of a fire-gutted home. A day earlier, a man set the home ablaze to lure first responders to the street so he could gun them down in an ambush that killed Leon County Sheriff's Deputy Christopher L. Smith. Angulo shot and killed the gunman, 53-year-old Curtis Wade Holley, after a 12-minute mid-morning gun battle in the middle of the street in the northwest Tallahassee Plantation Woods neighborhood. Leon County Sheriff's Office Deputies Smith and Colin Wulfekuhl were the first to arrive at the scene of the fire simultaneously in separate vehicl

SPRINGFIELD, [MO]--Tony Altman, a socially awkward former Klansman, who has described his dog as his only real friend, plans to leave town more than two months after his north Springfield home was searched by police, the FBI and the Missouri National Guard. Officials, some in hazmat suits, were looking for ricin, a highly toxic poison. Altman, whose German Shepherd briefly ran off after the Aug. 28 raid, said his house at 2210 N. Boonville Ave., will be auctioned off on Saturday along with most of his possessions. They destroyed my life," Altman said. Springfield police said at the time that investigators "had received credible information that ricin was being manufactured" at Altman's home

FERGUSON, [MO]--Anonymous, a network of unnamed online activists who hack as a form of protest and "cyberwarfare," has taken aim at the Ku Klux Klan. The group claims to have hacked KKK websites and social media accounts and has also published the names of individuals it says are Klan members. In a video and online posts, Anonymous said the attack is retaliation for KKK threats to use "lethal force" against protesters in Ferguson, Mo. Anonymous won't tolerate racism in any form, or the suppression of the right to protest," the group wrote in a blog post on the website anonhq.com. The group appears to have taken over KKK's Twitter account, @KuKluxKlanUSA, tweeting Sunday, "You should've expec

LIBERTY, [OH]--Doomsday preppers are the subject of a popular TV show on the National Geographic channel. It’s about families preparing for the end of the world as we know it, due to natural disaster, terrorist attacks or a financial meltdown. A Liberty resident named Angela (last name withheld) considers herself a prepper and has been stocking up since December of 2012. Angela has spent thousands of dollars on a stockade of food like MRE’s, flint to start fires and water filtration straws. She even has gas masks, but not for obvious reasons. Angela said she learned a lot about being prepared from the Air Force. While she does not consider herself an extreme prepper by any means, she sai

FERGUSON, [MO]--The white supremacist group Ku Klux Klan in Missouri have declared they will use “lethal force” against Ferguson protesters if they demonstrate in the event Mike Brown’s killer, Officer Darren Wilson, is not charged with murder by the grand jury. The Traditionalist American Knights of the KKK distributed fliers saying protesters have “awakened a sleeping giant,” and will resort to “lethal force” to defend themselves from “terrorists masquerading as ‘peaceful protesters.’” “You have been warned by the Ku Klux Klan!” the flier reads, according to New York magazine. “There will be consequences for your actions against the peaceful, law abiding citizen

ORANGE, [TX]--Sometimes mentioning a single word in conversation can strike fear and raise questions of the credibility of the person speaking it. One such word is militia. The Golden Triangle Militia wants to change that through educating the public. “We are more a community watch group,” Commander David Smith said. “We help the community and law enforcement by being prepared for whatever means.” Smith introduced himself to the Orange County Commissioners Court as well as meet individually with the Orange County Sheriff Keith Merritt and the Federal Bureau of Investigations.

DALLAS, [TX]--Thirty-seven people — most from Dallas and surrounding cities, all affiliated with various white supremacist groups — have been arrested on drug-trafficking conspiracy charges, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The federal grand jury’s indictment, filed in October but unsealed today following the arrests, alleges that each defendant has been part of a meth-distribution operating from Tulsa to Mesquite. And, says the indictment, they’re all have ties to the Aryan Brotherhood of Texas, the Irish Mob (which, the feds say, operates out of Tulsa), the Aryan Circle or the Dirty White Boys, which takes its name from a prison softball team formed in Texas in the mid-19
