Suburban chuds Richard Poisso, Shawn Canning, and more!
Anne Frank Army
Just when you think the militias are relegated to the wilds of Michigan or the deserts of Albuquerque, the losers in the Chicago suburbs are full of surprises. Let’s get to know members from the group “We the People III%” are a Chicagoland-based Three Percenter Militia or III%:
Just who are aka Three Percenters aka the III%ers aka the Threepers? They are a national paramilitary militia organization that takes its name from the wrongheaded rumor that only 3% of colonists fought against England in the Revolutionary War. The current iteration of the group’s beliefs is that they’re gun owners who will never disarm, they’re steeped in anti-immigrant and anti-Muslim rhetoric, and train for a conflict against forces who would defeat Trump, along with anyone they perceive as a threat to “muh freedoms.” The ADL has a fuller profile on the Three Percenters:
The national group’s name is based on the data point that only three percent of colonists fought against the British. But that’s right, Chicagoland has its own WTP Three Percenters just like the Three Percenter group that recently were busted as domestic terrorists for their exposed plan to kidnap the governor of Michigan and stood protecting Richard Spencer and other neo-nazi’s at the Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville which resulted in the death of Heather Heyer. WTP claims to have only seven members but the number is likely to be slightly higher. No matter the size of their membership, We the People III% Militia has a page at mymiltia.com page, which is intense because per The Guardian, way back when the lockdown was a thing, the biggest anti-lockdown group agitating towards a “second American Revolution” group had links to America’s far right and were connected to MyMilitia.com
Interestingly, another local right wing group, Illinois Gun Owners Together aka IGOT works closely with We The People III% Militia. More on their membership, including mega-creep Carl Arriaza, of Mt. Prospect, check out this thread on Twitter:
From intel, we’ve concluded that We the People III% Militia is currently using IGOT’s private Facebook group to recruit members under the name “Tommy Bear:”

Meet Richard Dean Poisso AKA Full Cend TKM, of Bartlett, IL:
As friends have previously explored, Richard Dean Poisso is a conservative pro-cop mechanic and military veteran, who got his certs from UTI and his graduation was highlighted by a community member on Patch.com.
It’s clear that no matter where Richard Poisso went to school, he’s deep into the armed militia culture, tilting against windmills that don’t exist:
Richard does security detail as part of TRT Defense, an independent security group, which he says was requested of him by the the pro-cop Back the Blue event organizers. We call BS as there aren’t any TRT chapters in Illinois but fortunately he sticks out with his giant tattoo of his militia’s name:
We are narrowing down his place of employment, so keep your eyes peeled for action items in the future! For some extremely private info on Richard Poisso, please see this archived link: https://archive.is/TBycZ
Shawn Canning, of Jefferson Park, Chicago, a Walgreens manager and IGOT organizer
Shawn M Canning Jr, age 44, is a moderator and organizer for IGOT . Shawn is believed to be a member of WTP III% Militia. Shawn has the “We the People” tattooed on his arm which seems to be a marking pattern for members of this militia. Besides his tattoo, Shawn recently updated his profile picture on facebook which hints to his involvement with WTP III%ers. In addition Shawn has created and advertised shirt designs for IGOT that include WTP Three Percenter logo’s and references. It is believed that Shawn is IGOT and Carl Arriaza’s connection to extremist groups like the Three Percenters and Proud Boys.
Proud Boys are the violent far-right neo-fascist once designated a domestic terrorist fraternity that Trump just gave orders to “stand back and stand by” about the upcoming election, a statement leading many to believe fanned the flames of an a civil war. The Proud Boys aren’t a threat in Chicago, as their members were outed by Chicago Anti-Fascist Action and include a Chicago police officer, a jailed property manager, a line cook, a WI-based former bike shop owner, and a creepy guy. But Proud Boys seem to have taken root in the suburbs.
Above is Shawn Canning (Center wearing IGOT shirt) with known Chicago Proud Boy Edgar “Remy Del Toro” Gonzalez to the left of Shawn and in the second pic, Sean’s in the green next to IGOT administrator John Coyne (Third from right. Wearing black and gold IGOT T-shirt). Clearly a member of the group seeking acceptance, Canning seeks feedback for the logo of the militia in the IGOT facebook page. Notice the usage of the Three Percenter logo and Canning coining his militia’s name, “We the People.”
Do note Shawn Canning’s “We the People” tattoo, which is eerily similar to Richard Poisso’s tattoo. Further, the same distinctive art is pulled from Shawn Canning’s Facebook profile, displaying a Three Percenter Logo in the American Flag with “We the People” written next to it.
Check out Sean’s reposting of the recent extremist rhetoric often used by Three Percenters to tout a civil war they very much want to see, like those Three Percenters who planned to kidnap the governor of Michigan. It’s clear that Sean identifies with these ideas and is awaiting the opportunity to harm, maim or kill his fellow Americans.
With his tattoo, his militia and his propensity for hanging out with neo-fascists and gunloving militia members, it’s fair to say that Sean is a danger to the community and anyone who doesn’t share his beliefs.
Speaking of jobs, we wonder what Walgreens has to say about Sean, their general manager, LARPing on the wrong side of a pretend civil war with known neo-fascist and paramilitary group members:
Shawn is married to Lisa Bernal, an indigenous woman with deep roots to Sisseton-Wahpeton. Sean has supported her and the program by playing the drums at traditional events. Further, Lisa works at Chicago Public Schools, as program director for CPS American Indian Education Program. We wonder what Lisa’s elders and her boss would have to say about Sean’s behavior and beliefs, and whether anyone is aware of the militia group to which her husband belongs.For some very personal information about how to get ahold of Shawn Canning at home in Jeff Park, please see this archived site: https://archive.is/JxGlz
Finally, in case you’re out and about, it’s pretty easy to spot this Walgreens manager and civil war internet warrior, he advertises on his minivan:

Meet Chaos AKA “Chaos WTP Patriots IL” or “Chaos Da” of Oak Forest, IL
Chaos AKA “Chaos WTP Patriots IL” or “Chaos Da” can be tied into into the WTP through his use of the name Chaos on social media accounts and his friendships with Breach over social media platforms. Fortunately, the dude is into selfies. Here’s one taken by Chaos after participating in early voting:
For verification of the use of “Chaos” in social media names and social media links to fellow WTP III%’er Breach, see the pics below, first Chaos in the WTP Patriots group page, then him on twitter, following his buddy Breach, who we’ll get to in a moment:

Meet Breach of WTP III% & Streator, IL resident
“I’m just a patriot that wants to do patriot shit!” – Breach WTP III%’er
We can only imagine what that patriot shit is Breach wants to do based on his statements on Twitter. Breach uses his social media accounts to spread misinformation and insight fearful and extremist rhetoric about antifascists and the upcoming election inline with the hopes of WTP III% in starting a new boogaloo civil war.
Running a simple GEOSINT search, we were able to determine that Breach lives in the 20 block of Helen Street in Streator, IL. More details forthcoming. Don’t hesitate to reach out to share any info on Breach, through [email protected] Any and all info is confidential

Paul shares quite a bit: he’s 38 years old, former Marine Mortarman, currently lives in West Chicago, IL where he drives for Uber.
