Since Obama doesn’t seem to be doing anything about the Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi being locked in a Mexican jail, a group of bikers has decided they will.
The founder of Shield Tactical, John Harrington, is headed to the border with a group of his friends to get Tahmooressi released.
Harrington isn’t a vet himself, but said that he “still cares” how they’re treated and is taking matter into his own hands.
“I started last Thursday, to organize the ride on the border to demand the release of Sgt. Tahmooressi. Somebody has to stand up for these guys,” Harrington said. “It’s time we start fighting liars with fires. And that’s what we’re doing.”
It’s been nearly three months since Tahmooressi was jailed for accidentally crossing the border with three registered firearms. He was charged with weapons trafficking and immediately thrown in prison.
The petition to force the Obama administration to work to get thee Marine freed has crossed the threshold of 100,000 signatures required to get a response from the White House but has been ignored by Obama.
“Obama,” Harrington said, “doesn’t leave anyone behind. He doesn’t leave traitors behind. He left four behind in Benghazi and he’s leaving our man behind here.”
