The two men who thought it was a good idea to enter a police station carrying semiautomatic rifles and wearing body armor are getting exactly what they deserved.

James Baker, 24, and Brandon Vreeland, 40, thought they would be arraigned on misdemeanor charges for the little stunt they pulled on Facebook live, but instead were slapped with felony charges for carrying a concealed weapon, disturbing the peace and assaulting, resisting or obstructing a police officer. Baker was also charged with brandishing a weapon, according to WDIV.

Baker and Vreeland entered the Dearborn police station February 5 to “file a complaint” because they “felt threatened” when they were pulled over earlier that day. They brought with them semiautomatic rifles, ski masks, body armor and cameras to film the whole thing. Ironically, they entered the station dressed for war and that’s exactly what they got, because they now face a much bigger legal battle than they expected.

Sergeant Carpenter of the Dearborn police spoke emphatically about why a high bond for these two “professional provocateurs” should be set.

Since the incident, police have investigated over 7,000 text messages between Baker and Vreeland about their “protests” and taking advantage of “Trumpophobia” by wearing full Muslim robes and carrying AK-47s at public demonstrations.

“There’s discussion of having a death wish, making funeral arrangements and embracing the idea of being known as the public enemy,” Carpenter said.

Bond has been set at $50,000 cash or surety, for Baker, and $20,000, cash or surety, for Vreeland. Both men will have to turn over all weapons if they post bond, and would be required to wear a GPS tether. One last condition of their bond: the two men must not have any contact with one another.

    IDIOTS…YES… But felons? NO!!! This is more political hangings… They did NOT brandish any weapons or conceal them…. We will see what the courts decide….

    • Drew Kutzor

      What do you consider brandishing a firearms, because the AK across his chest is brandishing a firearm if I’m correct, and if they had concealed weapons and no permits for them that’s also a crime. They deserve whatever comes to them. Play stupid games win stupid prizes!

      Political hangings!? Wha…!? You are f’n insane! You can’t do this! What do you mean!? Unreal. This country is packed full of bozos like you and these guys. God help us. You better pay attention to this case, because you can’t even measure the gravity of it. Listen close as the court explains why these two should never walk free in the next 25 years. It most definitely doesn’t equate to any political anything. You obviously don’t even know what “political” means! Holy crap!

    • ….and you know this how? I also saw the video and it did not render much about what the two idiots were doing or concealing, mostly showing the sergeant fixing to shoot their dumb asses. If it was me I would have shot them, if in the sergeants shoes, when I was a cop. Also, they did commit a felony by just walking into the cop shop armed.

    and also accused by news crew they stormed the police station , what a joke

    • Ock

      By entering holding a loaded semi it is considered “storming”. The only thing that technically detracts from that is the dildos didn’t start firing. The “joke” is you, these assh$&*#s, and anyone that would try to stand on your side. You and these dillies need some serious medical intervention. You are not normal if there is any thread of this incident being ok in your mind.

    Morons. I hope they throw away the key.

    What fools.

    I am a constitutionalist and firm believer in the 2nd amendment. I also believe that most of the laws we have are to protect those rights This Cheech and Chong pair of idiots has done nothing for constitutional ideals but make it that much harder to normalize acceptance of our constitutional rights. I agree with the Sergeant’s reaction and action. If this pair thinks it is a good idea to walk into a police station fully armed dressed like the local chapter of ISIS then they might think that shooting up the local Masonic lodge might also be a good idea just to make a point. My decision: in the jail and loose the key. Stupid is what stupid does.

  • Mikial

    They’re lucky they didn’t shot, walking into a police station like that. Total fools.

  • watchdogman

    Sure wish the police would have opened up on them…this is next best thing. Felons means no guns, no votes, no nothing…Maybe this is best…

  • Dan Flannery

    I work with Police Departments, Sheriff’s Officers and State Police from many states in the Union. All that I have met have been pro-gun and many wish for open carry. what these idiots did is inexcusable. How dumb can anyone be? Had I been there? I most certainly would have capped them. End of problem.
