Diomonte Demetrius Jean in the news

| May 16, 2018 | 57 Comments

Last year we wrote about Diomonte Demetrius Jean who pretended to be an Air Force PJ. He made the news in Florida this week when he was caught on Homestead Air Reserve Base pretending to be an airman

Jean’s godmother says he has pretended to be in the military for years, worn fatigues and even talked about going off to training.

Brian Entin: “Is he believable?”

Talmecia Minnis: “Very. Very convincing.”

She says the latest incident took things to another level.

Talmecia Minnis: “It’s escalating bad. Very bad.”

Last year, Jean was arrested in Florida City for openly carrying a gun that was reported stolen. In his arrest report, an officer wrote Jean said he got the gun from a “friend” when they “…were shooting in the military base.”

And, in a court document, Jean listed his address as “Homestead Air Reserve Base.”

We found Diomonte Jean at a house in Florida City.

Brian: “Diomonte Jean?” (Jean shakes his head no.)

At first he denied who he was — but then agreed to talk.

Brian Entin: “How were you able to get on the base?”

Diomonte Jean: “How was I able to get on the base?”

Brian Entin: “Yeah, not being in the military. How were you able to sneak on the base?”

Diomonte Jean: “Civil Air Patrol.”

His latest Facebook page says he works for an Air Force ROTC detachment;

I’m guessing that he will never stop until he gets shot for forcing his way on base.

    Impersonating a military officer should be enough to get him arrested; why has he not been prosecuted yet?

  2. Gravel says:

    He obviously has mental issues, what with pretending to be in the Air Force and all that.

    ***ducks and covers*** LOL

  3. JimV says:

    It sounds like he is suffering from Schizophrenia. Pretending that you are in the military is very common with that disorder. A friend of mine has a son who thinks he is a Navy Admiral. (I jokingly address him as Admiral Jones)

  4. HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    Maybe he and Cody Sterner need to hook up, get into their JROTC uniforms and play “Call of Booty – Anal Buttsekkx Warrior” together?

    This does not strike me as that unusual; in my neighborhood at home, we have two “eccentric personalities”….one is a nice little lady about 60-70 that goes everywhere in town wearing a ball gown, tiara, beauty pageant sash, and a somewhat scary Rapunzel length wig.

    The other? An obviously challenged individual that wears nothing but military fatigues..but, he does alter the camo pattern to match the seasons in Minnesota.

    All that aside, I didn’t see an issue with Mr Demetrius until the part about firearm possession and sneaking onto a Military facility….that’s going to be a problem.

    • Gravel says:

      I’ve had a similar experience.

      A very long time ago I was a cop in a small city in Ohio. There was an older man (older being subjective… I was in my mid 20s and he was probably late 40s) that lived in a halfway home for people that were semi-functional with minor to medium brain function issues. He always dressed in BDUs and spit-shined boots and walked around his neighborhood. Never any trouble.

      The local Papa Johns used to donate several pizzas on Monday nights for me to take to the halfway house. You never saw so many faces beaming with delights as they did on Pizza Night. 🙂

      Now, obviously, I consider that guy way different than ‘stolen valor.’ In fact, I can’t ever remember him claiming to have been in the military. He just liked to walk around in BDUs and talk with anyone that would chat. But it does make me wonder if Diomonte Demetrius Jean has some sort of underlying mental issue(s).

      Delta Dawn, what’s that flower you have on, could it be a rose from days gone by and did I hear you say, he was going to meet you hear today and take you to his mansion in the sky.

  6. Daisy Cutter says:

    He self identifies as an airman.

    I thought in today’s society we are all required to participate in the fantasy?

  7. CPT11A says:

    If Billy Idol wrote a song about this guy, it’d be called “Nose without a Face”. Look at that fuckin’ thing. Holy shit.

  8. Sparks says:

    Security folks on base have some splainin’ to do.

  9. Brown Neck Gaitor says:

    When/if he does escalate and someone gets their head broken, there will be a rush to blame the gun, lack of mental health funding and the NRA.

    Might I add the Miami Date Justice revolving door?

    $368 fine, $303 still owed. Indigent.

    • Mason says:

      Wish that this were an isolated case. Felony charges constantly get pled down, then the mope gives the judge a sob story, so the judge then stays the jail time, fines, or both.

      Don’t go watch a day of misdemeanor bench trials. All these turds taking a plea, admitting their guilt on the record, and walking out with a $50 fine they have 180 days to pay. Then you get the business man who was late to work go up to fight a speeding ticket and he pays the full $180 fine.

    • A Proud Infidel®™ says:

      Yeah, let him do something serious and it’ll either be the gun’s fault and/or some snotnosed liberal Defense Attorney with a lollipop up his or her ass will play the “Victim of Society” card versus trying to get him the help he needed before he got that bad.

    • rgr769 says:

      Naw, the proggies and their propagandists have stopped yapping about the lack of mental health funding. Now it is just the evil “GUNZ” and the NRA that are at fault.

    • 5JC says:

      Wait, he smokes marijuana? Shocked I am.

  10. 26Limabeans says:

    Brian Entin: “Yeah, not being in the military. How were you able to sneak on the base?”

    Diomonte Jean: “Civil Air Patrol.”

    That right there is something I have heard before and it is scary.

  11. Ex-PH2 says:

    He’s in the wrong business altogether. With a trombone hooter like his, he could hunt for truffles and make a real name for himself.

  12. Jeff LPH 3, 63-66 says:

    Thank God for the under the sink water purifier I had replaced last week so I don’t have to drink the Florida tap water and possibly end up as a poser on this site.

    Tony Curtis is turning over in his grave with all these “Great Imposter” peeps running around stealing his act.

  14. John Seabee says:

    Batshit crazy Haitian… That and a soft on crime “Turn them loose Bruce” mentality in their judicial system.

  15. Green Thumb says:

    Disturbing in a lot of ways.

  16. C2Show says:

    Reserve SFs lenient anyways. Not surprised. Matter of time.
