Eyewitness News has obtained the audio tapes of the NATO 3 as they discussed their plans to protest the 2012 summit held in Chicago.

Voice of Brian Church: "I don't believe in preemptive strikes. I don't believe in property damage. But if I feel threatened or innocent (expletive) civilians feel threatened, you better believe it's (expletive) going down."

The trio known as the NATO 3 was arrested before they could cause serious damage.

They were acquitted of terrorism charges but convicted of mob action and arson- related felonies.
