Charles Dyer, ex-marine who previously served time in Iraq, is currently on the run from police after being arrested for the rape of a seven-year-old family member. He was supposed to show up to court in Oklahoma on these charges but never showed up and a warrant has been issued for his arrest.
The 40-year-old is a member of the Oathkeeper militia movement which vows to uphold the Constitution of the United States ‘against all enemies, foreign and domestic’.
Police have encouraged everyone to keep their eyes open for the fugitive, but are convinced that he will be heavily armed. Because of this, they have asked that no one approach him or attempt to take him in on their own.
Last April he went to trial for this incident, but the jury was unable to reach a verdict. Knowing this, I became a bit suspicious. Then, the story got a bit more complicated. Not only was he charged with raping a minor, but he was in possession of an unregistered grenade launcher. The launcher had been stolen, and was one of the weapons that was supposed to be on its way to Iraq.
The wanted man has been posting videos on YouTube under the name ‘July 4 Patriot’, which explain that the government is out to get him. He also sent a letter to his lawyer to further explain his suspicions:
He said: ‘I have taken this final opportunity while I am still alive to make a statement to the public.
‘I have been pushed to the limits multiple times by law enforcement and the judicial system in an attempt to cause me to take violent action against them.
‘If I do, I know I will be the monster they depict me as.
‘Our judicial system is nothing more than a system of liars and crooks working under the color of the law, where the rich go free and the poor are made to suffer injustice. Something MUST be done to expose it.’
The last bit of very eerie information is that Dyers’ home has mysteriously burnt down and his girlfriend, Monica Joy Freeman, was arrested on arson charges. Was Dyer behind this? Does she know where he is? Is there really a conspiracy?
