Nine alleged members of a radical US Christian militia group have been charged with conspiring to kill police officers and wage war against the US. The suspects were detained in a series of FBI raids across the Mid-West, while one remains at large.
A website in the name of the group shows video footage of military-style training exercises and describes Hutaree as “Christian warriors”. It is edited to a backing track of rock music.
Pah! I always knew rock music was dangerous… There was a recent article on how Obama’s victory has spurred on and brought out a whole range of white, Christian crazies who think the end of the world is coming, but I can’t find it. I’m still a bit jetlagged so I’ll write more on the subject later maybe. Note, however, that the media noise on this attack has been minimal.
