HYBRID: In the classroom and online. A Zoom link will be sent to all one day before class.
The Michigan militia movement began in the late 1970s, and foreshadowed the growth of the movement nationwide. As an FBI agent in Michigan, Greg Stejskal had extensive involvement with Mark Koernke, “Mark from Michigan,” one of the founders of the movement. Later Stejskal was involved in the investigation of the Oklahoma City bombing, which had a substantial Michigan connection. In this class we will discuss these events, and how extreme elements of the militia movement have become a domestic threat, with their involvement in a plot to kidnap the governor of Michigan, and the January 6 insurrection at the United States Capitol Building in Washington D.C. Greg Stejskal is a retired special agent of the FBI having served from 1975-2006. He has also written a book, FBI Case Files Michigan – Tales of a G-Man, chronicling some of the cases in which he was involved during his career, some involving the Michigan militia.
