Hutaree is a Christian terrorist group in the United States which heavily based itself in End Times dogma.[1]

In March 2010 they were charged with plotting to murder a police officer and then bomb the resulting funeral in order to kill more police officers, who would almost certainly be attending their fallen colleague's remembrance.[2] Somehow killing police officers would cause all of America to rise up and install a Christian Theocracy. Instead of, you know, causing everyone to hate them because they killed cops and bombed a funeral.

They contacted other militia groups in the area for support and to have a safe house. The other militias turned them in as bombing a police officer funeral was too extreme for even the craziest militia.

One member also believed in a chain email that said that Obama was spending 20 million dollars to move Hamas over to America. (See link below)

Among the items found in the group's possession were multiple copies of the Left Behind "convert or kill" computer game.[3][4][5]

Acquittal[edit]

The Hutarees were acquitted of most charges in February 2011.[6] The judge believed that the impotent right-wing fantasies of heroism were not to be taken seriously. Most of their weapons were even returned.[7]
