Man Presented on DC Warrant in SDNY Says He Is The Government And Is Detained

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Maxwell Book
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - ESPN

SDNY MAG COURT EXCLUSIVE, April 18-  In the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York on April 18, a detention or release proceeding was held by Magistrate Judge Stewart D. Aaron on a defendant named Jezyl Barefield.

   Barefield was brought in shackled, with talk that he had declined to fill out the financial affidavit.

  Inner City Press covers the SDNY Magistrates Court as it has The Bronx and DDC, sometimes alone in the gallery, as it was on April 18.

   Barefield was wanted on a warrant from DDC, not directly from the Federal court there but the Superior Court of DC.

  But Barefield spoke of being the government, of being ambushed, and mental evaluation was ordered. See thread here:

Defendant asks, Have you told Joe Biden about this? I am being ambushed.

 AUSA: He was bailed on a robbery charge but did not appear. He cannot be trusted, look at his demeanor.

Federal Defender: He should be released.

 Defendant: If I am the government, I get to speak, correct?

Judge Aaron: I order you detained

Inner City Press research finds that the warrant was issued by DC Superior Court Judge Rainey Brandt on October 27, 2020 on a charge of taking an iPhone 7 Plus from a victim's backpack on the 1200 block of G Street in Washington DC. Barefield's lawyer in DC Karen Minor said she was not able to get in touch with Barefield.
