Charges Thrown out Against Right-Wing Terrorist Who Paraded around Town Heavily Armed (Video)

Leonard Stannis Embody of Brentwood, Tennessee —  sometimes referred to locally as the “Radnor Lake Rambo” because of his penchant for carrying weapons in inappropriate places such as a public park at Radnor Lake — had all charges against him dismissed by Nashville judge Randall Wyatt on Tuesday.

Wyatt explained that because Embody had permits for the gun and silencer, he had not violated the law because the law does not require him to produce a permit, only to have one.

Police arrested Embody on July 29 2013 when they observed him walking around in front of the courthouse clad in body armor and carrying what appeared to be a rifle on his back in a moldable plastic case.  When police approached him and asked to see his permit for the gun and silencer and inquired as to whether the gun was loaded, Embody stubbornly refused to speak.

The judge ruled on Tuesday that while Embody could have ended the entire situation at the time by simply cooperating with the police, he had done nothing illegal and therefore the charges had to be dismissed.  Apparently, heavily-armed white guys don’t get murdered for not cooperating with police.

Police even commended Wyatt for handling the event properly under the circumstances.

This is not the first time that Embody has created this sort of a stir, and if the past is any indication the police can expect to find themselves back in court with him shortly.

In December of 2010 Embody was confronted by a park ranger in Radnor State Park where he was carrying a loaded AK-47 pistol, metro police were called and they determined that because the gun was a pistol it did not violate the rules prohibiting guns in the park.  Embody retaliated against the park ranger by filing a lawsuit against him.

One month after that incident, in January of 2011 Embody was again detained by police in Belle Meade, Tennessee carrying a black powder pistol known as an Army-Navy pistol in his hand.  Embody insisted that he was doing nothing illegal but the police held a different opinion.  That encounter with the police cost Embody his carry permit for a handgun.

Lt. Robert Ackerman of the Belle Meade Police Department wrote to the Tennessee Department of Safety recommending that Embody’s carry permit be revoked because he believed him to be a threat to public safety although he had not as yet violated any laws.  The department agreed and revoked the permit, a move which Lt. Ackerman said was a favor to all gun owners and the general public since Embody was not of a mindset that comported with safety.

Embody is expected to soon be out on the streets with his gun passing out literature and professing his great affection for the Constitution which is why he claims to do the less than rational things he does.  More than likely he will find himself sooner or later in another courtroom as well.

About Bob Cull

I'm retired and live in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate NY. I have strong opinions and my political bent has not changed since I was in high school. Most of my family thinks that I need to find a "real" hobby to fill my time in retirement, but I am content to share my opinions with others and exercise my "right" as a cranky old retired dude to express my views--which are based on many years of real world experience.

    I see by your picture you are a hippy. I don’t agree with you at all. You write like you are a socialist. But, don’t worry us tea partyers will protect your right to write your trash.

    • kbdevo1962

      With a gun ? Puhleeze ! The only rights the Tea Party cares about is a cherry picked portion of the Second Amendment, after that, they seem to try to take away everybody’s personal rights.
      As far as agreeing with Bob, what’s not to agree with? There is only one paragraph that has his personal opinion, and from that you deduced that he’s a Socialist ? Even if he is, what of it ? After all the Constitution gives him that right . Just like the Constitution gives you the right to be a Tea Party member.
      No diversity is only good in the minds of bigots.
      Socialism is not necessarily a bad thing. After all our armed forces use it.
      On the other hand Crony capitalism ,such as what we have, IS a very bad thing. Unless you are a 1%er.

    • CenterIndependent

      Not sure why the Tea Party think they can protect anyone from the Feds. They are delusional if they think they can take on drones and several nuclear aircraft carriers…

  • Bob Cull

    The closest I come to responding to a Koch worshiping troll is to tell him/her that I no longer respond to trolls. There is no point in it, any FACT, that doesn’t corroborate what you guys imagine to be true is dismissed as a lie. That’s what the propaganda ministry, otherwise known as Fox “News” does, not us.

    • Alton Clark

      ” OH ” and I guess every thing that you think is Right , Just and no one but obama is more right than you . Dream On liberal TROLL !

      • Dan

        Uh…Clark…you might want to rewrite your post so that it makes sense. Having your invisible friend proof-read for you just isn’t working out.

        • kbdevo1962

          He’s obviously spent too much time listening to Sarah Palin’s infamous word salad speeches .

          • Alton Clark

            And you think obama is any better ?

          • kbdevo1962

            Hes STILL the President . IS’NT HE ? He didn’t QUIT a governorship like Palin did. But then again, that HAD to be good for Alaska, since I doubt anybody could understand a thing she said. She is the epitome of Word Salad.

            So to answer your question. – Infinitely

          • Alton Clark

            OH, but it doesn’t matter that obama spent only 6 month or so in the senate before getting out to run for president ?

          • kbdevo1962

            Your joking, right ? Considering the Politicians that misquote famous quotes , Cherry pick the constitution, Can’t remember the rest of it, and consistently try to dismember ,the parts they don’t like. And then imbeciles like Palin are actually considered as a running mate ? The answer is a resounding NO.

          • Bob Cull

            Okay, Son of Susie, you aren’t going to tell me how I can troll my own article but I see you require an education. You are entitled to your own opinions however you are not entitled to your own FACTS. The thing that makes a fact a fact is that it is immutable. The president was in the Senate for nearly 4 years, not six months. Turn off Faux News, it only makes you dumber and you can’t afford to be any dumber, you’ll forget how to breathe.

        • Alton Clark

          Sorry , I don’t have any friend’s invisible or visible . Friend’s cost me money and I have a brother and sister that haven’t talk to me in 15 years because I would not give them any more money and they think the same way that you do !

          • Dan

            They think that you need to start making sense also? Very good for them!

          • Alton Clark

            It’s even better for me .

        • Alton Clark

          I can see now how so many of you voted for obama . I watched his speech today and damed if he ain’t worse than ME. Take away his prompter and he is lost . Makes me wonder how he even made it through collage , I guess enough money and good dope will carry you a long way .

          • Dan

            Yep, you’re right about the money and drugs part, that’s how the GOP bought the Presidency for Bush. Now they are trying to buy offices for more Teapublicans, but hopefully, even the stupidest GOP voter is smarter than you Alton.
            Bush, hell, he had a hard time even WITH the teleprompter!

      • kbdevo1962

        You really seem to have a problem with your caps. Is it an intermittent problem ?
        BTW What has Obama got to do with this article ?
        And lastly How is the author of this article a troll ?

        • Bob Cull

          I get that a lot and I’m damned if I understand just how it is that these guys think that I am “trolling” my own articles, then I remember the barely decipherable signs at their “rallies.” I never ask because I’m afraid they might try to “explain” it to me and reading or listening to their convoluted and outlandish explanations of anything is painful.

        • Alton Clark

          No problem , It work’S the waY I want it To .First of all My comment was not made to yoU so why would I care if you understand it or not And Second , Who said any thing about this Article as it was a Reply to the Troll Bob Cull !

          • Bob Cull

            I never do this and I know I’ll regret it because trying to understand such convoluted reasoning and make sense out of a word salad is going to give me a headache, but here we go — As the man asked, how the hell can I possibly “troll” my OWN article?

          • kbdevo1962

            LOL ! Better stock up on some Excedrin . Your going to need it !

  • texastrapper

    Man just doing what the Constitution allows him to do. Only a fool would label him a terrorist.

    • Bob Cull

      No, his goal is to intimidate and that is his only goal, the same goal any terrorist has. I guarantee that if a black man refused to cooperate with the police in an identical situation and by some miracle lived to appear in court you would not have the same attitude. Better yet, how about a Muslim?

      • susan5042

        Aw, and there it is.the liberal race card. Listen, you talk about facts..fact is you obviously don’t know what a “terrorist” is. And I hope this man sues you for libel. ..fact is he did nothing illegal, as proven. So sthu!

        • Bob Cull

          And there is the ignorance that abounds among the TPers! Contrary to what you believe, education is a good thing, not something evil to be avoided at all cost. If you knew anything about libel you wouldn’t make such a stupid comment.

          • susan5042

            A published defamation is libel you dolt. You publicly labeled him a terrorist. Maybe you should educate yourself. Done with you!

          • Bob Cull

            There is no point arguing the willfully ignorant, so as your book of myths advises, I will go now from the presence of a fool because I do not perceive the lips of wisdom.

    • kbdevo1962

      If I were black, wore Body armor, a bandoleer with shells ,carried a glock ,and a shotgun,and waked into a neighborhood store, or a church, or a park , what would you label me ? Even though I was “exercising” MY Constitutional rights ? Yeah I thought so.

  • Flomox

    “right wing terrorist”….

  • Guy Lauten

    Methinks Mr. Embody will wake up one morning with a bad case of lead poisoning.

  • DTansy

    Victory, the very LEAST an idiot like yourself could do is actually get the story straight.

    The Black Panthers walked TWENTY DEEP into the STATE CAPITOL armed with rifles, shotguns and pistols. The LAW, you blithering idiot, was against WALKING INTO GOVERNMENT BUILDINGS WITH FIREARMS.

    You aren’t really much of a reader, are ya? Or is it just comprehension you have a problem with?

    • Dan

      DTansy, you incurable moron, where did Victory say ANYTHING that was different from your trollish, childish little rant?
      If it had been white people, you would have been fine with it, right you stupid little racist? Because it was the Black Panthers, you feel the need to point out that there were 20 of them? So freaking what? Only white people can walk around armed in your bigoted, slimeball world DTansy?
      Not very well educated are you? Or is it just facts that you and other scummy fools like you have a problem with?

      • Alton Clark

        I thank it wus that part about them goin in tah State Capitol that he left out that dun it !

        • Dan

          Probably because they DIDN’T go in the State Capitol. They assembled peacefully on the STEPS of the State Capitol. Outside. In the sunlight with the rest of the public.
          They didn’t block access to the building, didn’t harass anyone walking past.
          20 deep? Not even 20 total!

  • kbdevo1962

    I guess some people are too stupid to leave well enough alone.
