Religious extremists

One shot dead by the FBI:

''He regularly preaches anti-government and anti-law enforcement rhetoric,'' Leone said. ''______ and his followers have trained regularly in the use of firearms, and continue to train in martial arts and sword fighting.''
Except for the name that I blanked, this m.o. could have been Christian Identity, but it was in Detroit instead of Boise, so it's home-grown Muslim extremists.

Rhetorical questions: If this had been some lunatic fringe of Christianity, would there be pressure on peaceful evangelicals to distance themselves from the violent sect? Or would that just be assumed?
