Deerborn, Michigan – Open carry activists Brandon Vreeland and James Baker, as we have previously reported, are in a legal battle that may wind up setting legal precedents in the state of Michigan. As previously reported, Mr. Baker and Mr. Vreeland were swarmed by officers of the Deerborn Police Department upon entering their front lobby to file a complaint about a recent interaction with a few of their officers. It would be smart to note that Mr. Vreeland was carrying nothing but a camera on a tripod, while Mr. Baker was legally carrying a slung AK-47 and a sidearm.

Well, after a lot of effort Mr. Vreeland was able to obtain the footage from his personal camera (but could not retreive his camera which was stolen by the police). The footage can be seen below, along with some footage from the lobby, which both defendants were given the run around about, while an officer from the Deerborn Police Department leaked the video to a pro-police Facebook group. This was prior to discovery being granted to the defendants and may bring up some very serious legal hurdles for the prosecuting attorneys to overcome if they wish to try and convict these two activists.

What will astonish most is the sheer violence shown by the Deerborn Police Department for two individuals who were not menacing in anyway nor making any threats to do harm. Officers came from every angle, guns drawn, fingers on the trigger. They even pointed their guns at Mr. Vreeland, who was not armed in any way.

What is most telling of the intention of the police is the way in which they seemed to purposely over-react to the situation, even stating that they would shoot Mr. Baker and even Mr. Vreeland, all for violating no laws under the Michigan code. They also knew they were coming, due to officers from an initial traffic stop (which prompted the two to attempt to file a complaint) informing dispatch of their plans to head directly to the police station to file a complaint.

Now, whether or not you agree with these activists tactics, ask yourself this. How far would you go to exercise your natural rights, to maintain them, and to keep the government you are forced to abide from turning ever more tyrannical?
