DETROIT - Seven members of a Midwestern militia group accused of plotting to kill police were preparing for war against the US government, prosecutors told jurors Monday at the start of a federal trial in Detroit.




Prosecutors laid out an array of weapons including assault rifles, military style helmets and bullet-resistant vests seized in the investigation and played video and audio recordings for jurors in their opening statement.




"David Stone Sr. wanted a war," Assistant US Attorney Christopher Graveline said of the group's leader, who is on trial with three members of his family and three others.
