Terror Suspect Feared Social Collapse

Joe Denoyer - February 24, 2017 10:45 pm

The defense claim of a “self-defensive posture” surfaced during a detention hearing Friday for Patrick Stein, whom prosecutors say was the leader of militia group called “The Crusaders.”

U.S. District Judge Eric Melgren did not immediately rule.
