BOSTON (CBS) – After hours of delays and defiance, a judge in Malden District Court held a dangerousness hearing for six of the suspects in Saturday’s highway shutdown on Route 95 in Wakefield.
The evidence included body camera video from the state trooper that first came across the heavily armed militia men refueling on the side of the road.READ MORE: Volunteers Gather To Clean Up Trash In Boston's Muddy River
The body camera video shows Jamhal Latimer, the leader of the Rise of the Moors, dressed in camouflage, wearing a bulletproof vest, and carrying a high-powered rifle.
A second heavily armed member of the militia stands by as they approached the trooper and claim they have the right to carry the weapons across state lines. They said they were traveling from Rhode Island to Maine without any unnecessary stops.READ MORE: Attleboro Animal Shelter Says Driver Deliberately Ran Over 5 Geese On Route 123
