U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi has been in a Mexican prison for almost three months — and a group of bikers have decided that’s long enough.
John Harrington, founder of Shield Tactical, grew tired of waiting on President Obama to intervene on the Marine’s behalf, so he is organizing a ride to the Mexican border to demand Tahmooressi’s release.
“I started last Thursday to organize the ride on the border to demand the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi,” Harrington told the Guerilla Media Network in a roadside interview earlier this week. “Somebody has to stand up for these guys. It’s time we start fighting liars with fires. So that’s what we’re doing.”
Tahmooressi, a decorated veteran who served two tours in Afghanistan, has been imprisoned since March 31, when he made “a wrong turn” at the border and accidentally entered Mexico. Officials there charged the Marine with weapons trafficking after finding three legally registered firearms in his vehicle.
“[President Obama] doesn’t leave anyone behind,” Harrington quipped. “He doesn’t leave traitors behind. He left four behind in Benghazi, and he’s leaving our man behind here.”
