Michigan militia members are taking a stand against Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer, saying that they won't let police arrest 77-year-old Karl Manke, who defied her COVID-19 shutdown order last week when he opened his Owosso barbershop.
"We are here to make sure he doesn't get arrested," Daniel Brewer told WEYI-TV. "We're willing to stand in front of that door and block the entrance so the police will have no entry there today."
The barbershop has been open since last Monday, and it was absolutely packed with customers on the first morning after the reopening. On Saturday, dozens of supporters gathered outside the barbershop while fifteen waited in line inside to get haircuts.
