Guardian: A group of heavily-armed men were engaged in an ongoing stand-off on Saturday with Massachusetts police, prompting shelter-in-place orders in some areas and sparking massive delays on the holiday weekend as a portion of Interstate 95 remained shut down.

The standoff began around 2am when police noticed two cars pulled over on I-95 with hazard lights on, authorities said at a Saturday press briefing.

Between eight to 10 men were clad in military-style gear and carrying long guns and pistols, said Col Christopher Mason of Massachusetts state police.

The men refused to put down their weapons or comply with authorities’ orders, claiming to be from a group “that does not recognize our laws”, police said.

They took off into a wooded area. By mid-morning Saturday, two men had been arrested.

Officials were using negotiators to interact with the other suspects.

“Time is our ally in this and we will certainly utilize this,” Mason said.

The standoff shut down part of I-95 in Wakefield in both directions, prompting heavy traffic as people hit the road for the Fourth of July weekend.

In Massachusetts, I-95 runs from the Rhode Island line, around Boston and to the New Hampshire line. Wakefield is just east of where I-95 and I-93 meet, north of Boston.

Residents in Wakefield and nearby Reading were advised to lock their doors and shelter in place.

Wakefield police said in its statement no threats had been made but the men were considered armed and dangerous.

  1. What crime did they commit ? And how did the situation go from talking to running into the woods. This sounds like aggressive policing escalated a benign situation, and now they won’t back down. I would like to hear the story from those who ran.

    • As said Oscar Wilde once….. nothing that actually occurs is of the smallest importance… 🙂

  2. A group ‘that does not recognize our laws’….. Maybe that means those guys are demanding they need a separate country just for themself

    Even before I got to the above quote,
    I, like any “normal” VT reader had already decided not to take this event on face value.
    But for that quote to be in the article; it is pure bait for conspiracy theorists.
    Oh yes, I’m sure they will “utilize this”

    • There is a difference between obey laws and just use some of them that serve at your own ends.

    • Oh for crapola, the police slowed it down, did not go in hot. Everything isn’t black/white unless you are a racist. Let the police do their job. Everything worked out. Jeezy peezy!

    • Harry , the coppers could barely handle a fire fight with a 12 year old boy and 14 year old girl a few weeks ago in Florida , they prefer the brothers unarmed and alone….
