DETROIT, Michigan, (AFP) - Nine members of a radical Christian warrior militia have been charged with plotting to kill police then bomb the victims funeral in a bid to unleash an uprising against the US government. Prosecutors said in an indictment unsealed Monday that the Hutaree militia considered law enforcement to be foot soldiers of the federal government, and counted among their enemies anyone who did not share their beliefs or was participating in the new world order. The Hutaree website - pocketed with screeds framed by fanatically religious, apocalyptic scenarios - says the militia was preparing for the end time battles to keep the testimony of Jesus Christ alive. Their alleged plan, after training together since at least 2008, was to kill a law enforcement officer and then attack the funeral with homemade bombs, the charging document said. The group would then retreat to one of several rally points to wage war against the government and be prepared to defend in depth with trip-wired and command detonated anti-personnel Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), ambushes, and prepared fighting positions. It is believed by the Hutaree that this engagement would then serve as a catalyst for a more widespread uprising against the govt, the indictment said. Prosecutors said a weekend raid on militia members in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana was necessary because the group planned to kill anyone who got in the way of a covert reconnaissance operation planned for April. Eight of the militia members were initially arrested. The leaders son, 21-year-old Joshua Stone, was arrested late Monday in a former militia training area near a church in rural Wheatland Township, Michigan, the local Detroit Free Press newspaper reported. Authorities lured Stone out of hiding by playing messages recorded by family and friends over a loud speaker, calling on him to surrender peacefully, the report said, citing the Detroit FBI office. The indictment unsealed today outlines an insidious plan by anti-government extremists to murder a law enforcement officer in order to lure police from across the nation to the funeral where they would be attacked with explosive devices, Attorney General Eric Holder said in a statement. Thankfully, this alleged plot has been thwarted and a severe blow has been dealt to an dangerous organisation that today stands accused of conspiring to levy war against the United States. The groups logo is a cross with the initials CCR, which stand for Colonial Christian Republic and its name means Christian warrior. A video posted on the website depicts a group of heavily armed men in military gear replacing a burning United Nations flag with their flag after pretending to kill soldiers wearing blue helmets. The group also warns of the coming of the Anti-Christ and the Beast, and cites Biblical passages to prove that Jesus wanted us to be ready to defend ourselves. This is an example of radical and extremist fringe groups which can be found throughout our society, Andrew Arena, special agent in charge of the Detroit office of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said in a statement. The FBI takes such extremist groups seriously, especially those who would target innocent citizens and the law enforcement officers who protect the citizens of the United States. The militia members face charges of seditious conspiracy, attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction, teaching the use of explosive materials and possessing a firearm during a crime of violence. Those charged were: militia leader David Brian Stone, 45; his wife, Tina Stone, 44; his sons Joshua Matthew Stone, 21 and David Brian Stone, Jr, 19; Joshua Clough, 28; Michael Meeks, 40; Thomas Piatek, 46; Kristopher Sickles, 27; and Jacob Ward, 33. David Stone, who also went by the pseudonyms of Captain Hutaree and Joe Stonewall, thought he was invincible, his ex-fiancTe said. They face a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted. A detention hearing and arraignment was set for Wednesday.
