Two Armed and Masked White Men Walked Into a Dearborn Police Station
What I’m writing about clearly shows that we are in a system motivated by racism/white supremacy. This also shows that the true and greatest threat to Law enforcement are white males,, contrary to the false War on Cops propaganda, and contrary to the false narrative that ONLY black males are targeting cops.
On February 5,2017. Two white males, James V Baker 24 yrs old of Leonard Michigan, and Brandon Vreeland 40 yrs old of Jackson Michigan, were arrested after walking into a Dearborn, Michigan police station carrying firearms, and wearing ski masks and body armor. This began when shoppers at the Fort Road shopping district called police about two suspicious men wearing ski masks and body armor. When police arrived, the men were gone.
Later a police sergeant spotted the vehicle and conducted and pulled them over for a traffic stop.They matched the description. However, Baker while in his ski mask, refused to talk to police. The sergeant let them go because he didn’t see any guns in the car. This is on video.
Some time later, Baker and Vreeland decided to get their firearms and go to the Dearborn police station. According to these individuals, “After being pulled over illegally, we felt in fear of our lives.We had to protect ourselves”
Baker was fully armed with semi automatic assault rifles and a Glock 19, along with several fully loaded magazines. Baker was decked out in a ski mask and Vreeland was not wearing a ski mask, but both men were wearing body armor. Vreeland is holding a camera. They enter the police station. Immediately, they were confronted by a police officer who orders them to drop his weapon. This goes on for over 3 minutes. This is on video.
Finally the 2 men are arrested and charged with failure to cooperate with police, resisting, and breaching the peace. These men were freed upon posting a $1500 a bond. All of the charges are misdemeanors.
- I didn’t list any firearms charges because every article I read on this case didn’t have a firearms charge.
2. All of the charges are misdemeanors. No FELONIES. This means they will still have access to firearms.
3. These white men were the people cops were called about yet cops let them go. Think about all the unarmed NON THREATENING black people killed because they “matched ” a “description or they fit a profile”.
As you watch the videos remember the 2-30 time frames that police took to kill Tamir Rice, Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, Amadou Diallo, Terrance Crutcher, John Crawford, Keith Lamont, Scott Miriam, Carey Korryn Gaines, and all of the countless black people quickly killed by police. Yet incredible restraint is shown to armed and decked out white men who were clearly confrontational.
Baker and Vreeland said they were in fear of their lives. Not one police officer said ” I was in fear of my life. I was in fear for my life” throughout the entire criminal matter. Unarmed, non threatening black people can make police officers in fear of their lives. Armed, body armored and ski masked wearing white men apparently don’t make police fearful for their lives.
Clearly the case could be made for terrorism. Since these were armed people with a grudge against LEOs; since these were white men, no terrorism charges were filed or considered.
I’m pretty sure if Pakistani,Iranian,Iraqi,Somali,Nigerian Muslims or Nation of Islam members did this, that terrorism charges would have been pursued and granted.
I hope you found this informative.
