Dog lovers who were not pleased about a police-involved fatal shooting of a family’s pit bull became activists and recorded themselves walking into a police station in Jackson, Michigan. During that time, they openly carried an AR-15 semiautomatic rifle to file a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
The incident took part on November 28, when during a search of an apartment, supposedly aggressive dogs were shot and killed by officers. The incident is currently under investigation.
Reactions are mixed, especially after police officers have received so many real threats in the past few months, due to a number of high profile police shootings.
The men behind the JacksonCopBlock and TacticalPatriot YouTube channels are apparently seen entering the Jackson Police Department with intentions of interacting with law enforcement. One of the men is seen openly carrying an AR-15 rifle and wearing an apparent bulletproof vest with “Jackson Cop Block” printed on the back.
“I’d like to file a FOIA request,” one of the men says in the video.
A woman at the front desk is seen asking the men where they came from, suggesting police had received calls about individuals carrying rifles. She appeared to want to determine if the calls were about them so officers weren’t dispatched for no reason.
The man behind the camera refused to reveal his previous location, telling her, “We came from our place of origin to here.”
Police officials informed the men that the FOIA office would not open until 12:30 in the afternoon.
