This is one of those potentially scary real-life moments that feels like a episode of Reno 911. A couple of gun activists threw on ski masks, grabbed semi-automatic assault rifles, fired up Facebook Live, and headed to the Dearborn police station to “file a complaint.” Let’s just say that police didn’t think very kindly of men walking into the police station with weapons just to make a point about the 2nd Amendment, with one cop yelling “I will put a round in you, sir.”
Back-and-forth shouting ensues and the tape goes black. At one point, an officer screams, “What’s the matter with you?” To which a masked man retorts, “What’s the matter with you?” The masked man states, “I came here to file a complaint.” An officer fires back, “You can file your complaint in a minute. Step back!”
There is continued yelling between police and the masked men until the video abruptly ends. Dearborn police say the men were taken into custody without incident and posted $1,500 bond pending future court appearances, according to a press release. Officers seized an arsenal of weapons and ammunition: the loaded AP-14 firearm, rifle magazine containing 47 7.62 rounds, a loaded Glock 19 handgun with four additional magazines containing 66 rounds, body armor and ballistic vests, masks, gun belt, several pieces of camera equipment, an AR-15 rifle, and a AK-47-style rifle, according to a press release.
In a statement, Dearborn Police Chief Ronald Haddad said: “I find this behavior totally unacceptable and irresponsible. This is not a 2nd Amendment issue for me. We had members of the public in our lobby that fled in fear for their safety as these men entered our building. I want to express my appreciation for the many calls of support we’ve received from the community including a call from the president of Michigan Open Carry, Inc. who made it clear that he and his organization stand with law enforcement and unequivocally condemn the actions that took place in our lobby this past Sunday.”
Not sure you can possibly get any dumber. But hey — Welcome to America in 2017.
