"Preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive." Hutaree
On March 27, eight members of the Hutaree militia were arrested based a federal grand jury indictment for seditious conspiracy attempt to use weapons of mass destruction; teaching/demonstrating the use of explosive materials; plus two counts of carrying a firearm as part of a crime of violence. The eight were arrested in small towns in Southeastern Michigan and adjacent areas of Ohio and Indiana.
According to their web site, Hutaree means soldier of Christ. In fact, the term is a neologism.
The religious warriors had a four part plan. They would draw the attention of federal law enforcement officials by killing one or several, including family members if they were available. When a major funeral was held for the slain police or federal officials, the Hutaree would attack the funeral procession with explosive devices killing as many police as they could. At that point, the soldiers of Christ would retreat to the woods and battle law enforcement. All of this would culminate in a national uprising against the government, which they believe to be the agent of the antichrist. USA versus David Brian Stone, et al (HUTAREE)
