Dearborn Police Station remains on high alert after two masked individuals dressed in full tactical gear and carrying assault rifles stormed the headquarters on Sunday. The station’s spokesperson declared that one them said that the reason why they came armed to the teeth was to file a complaint against an officer who abusively stopped their vehicle.
According to Chief Ronald Haddad of Dearborn Police Station, on Sunday afternoon, two masked individuals stormed the police headquarters. One of them open carried an AP-14 rifle and a handgun, while the second one had a camera and a tripod. Haddad also declared that both of them were dressed in tactical vests and that the individual with the assault rifle concealed his face with balaclava mask.
After several tense minutes, the individual carrying the assault rifle, only identified as a 24-year-old from the town of Leonard, told the officers who threatened to open fire that they only came into right a wrong and that there’s no reason to become violent. The individual accompanying the gunner is a 40-year-old Caucasian male from the town of Jackson.
Moments later, the individuals were taken into custody but were released the next day, after they paid their $1,500. According to Chief Haddad, the individual carrying the camera mounted on a tripod broadcasted the entire incident on Facebook Live. More interesting is the fact that the account who broadcasted the Dearborn Police Station incident belongs to James Baker, an open-carry militant.
Baker’s name is associated with many street movements intended to force the Government to legalize the open-carry policy. Moreover, it would also seem that James Baker is the founding member of a group called Hell’s Saints, a group of activists who seeks to make open-carrying legal in Detroit.
As for the two individuals who broke into the Dearborn Police Station, Chief Haddad said that the men decided on this course of action after being stopped that day by another police officer. Earlier, a man dialed 911 and told the law enforcement officers that he saw two suspects with masks and tactical vests driving around the neighborhood.
When the officers arrived, the suspects were nowhere to be found. However, the two individuals were stopped several hours later by a law enforcement officer who recognized their vehicle but was forced to released them, as the individuals did not carry any firearms in their car.
