Marine Sgt. Charles Dyer, a tea party leader, has been arrested on charges of rape of a minor, as well as possessing stolen weapons … a grenade launcher?  What in gods name would warrant owning a grenade launcher? 

… Just as an aside, it blows my mind that it is actually legal to own one.  Why would anyone need to own a grenade launcher?  … anyway, back to the story …

What is really interesting to know is what would Charles Dyer have us do with a man that labels himself as a domestic terrorist?  Guantanamo?  Military tribunal?  Technically, he stole military arms, so it only seems appropriate.

The following was taken from Crooks and Liars:

Dyer cropped up again in the news — this time in the police blotter for allegedly raping a 7-year-old girl:

An ex-military man has been arrested on charges of rape of a child and forcible sodomy.

Charles Alan Dyer, 29, of Marlow, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by Stephens County Sheriff’s deputies, said Sheriff Wayne McKinney. Dyer served in the United States Marines in Iraq.

Oh, and guess what police found when they searched his home:

During the search the sheriff’s deputies noted several firearms and a device believed to be a Colt M-203, 40-millimeter grenade launcher, a complaint filed in the United States District Court of Western Oklahoma by Alcohol, Firearms and Tobacco Special Agent Brett Williams said.

As the story from KAUZ-TV notes, Dyer had a history of making bizarre claims in his videos — as well as violent fears of being arrested.

“We come home and those bastards want to talk about how we’re domestic terrorists and a threat to this country. It makes me so angry,” said Charles Dyer, who has been accused of committing rape.

… More incriminating evidence against Dyer has surfaced in a YouTube video. The video shows Dyer, a former U.S. Marine, talking proudly about domestic terrorism. “Join the military?”, said Dyer. “Depends on what you want to do with it. Me? I’m going to use my training and become one of those domestic terrorists that you’re so afraid of from the DHS reports.”

… “I’m certainly not going to be hiding from my command anymore. I’m not hiding from ATF. Not hiding from FBI. Any organization. If they want to come get me I’m not going to be afraid,” Dyer said.

“Patriots, we are not overpowered. If we united under one banner and fight for our children’s liberity and the constitution, our resolve is invincible to any standing army,” Dyer said.

GossipBoy is reporting that the rape victim was a close family member. They also report that Dyer had been in touch with a fellow militiaman linked to explosives dealing, and that when bomb-sniffing dogs searched Dyer’s home, they indicated explosives had been stored there recently.

I say we treat him the way he advocates we treat terrorists … Guantanamo and a military tribunal.  It only seems fair.  As for the sodomizing a 7 year old, castration … the only just punishment.
