Thieves Steal Over 250 Guns; Half-Million Rounds of Ammo

New Jersey State Police along with Franklin Township Police and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms have stolen over 250 guns along with 500,000 rounds of ammunition from law abiding citizen and former Vineland police officer Brian Hinkle according to an article on NJ.com.

Police made an attempt to enter Mr. Hinkle's home without a search warrant and proceeded to arrest Mr. Hinkle for resisting arrest, claiming he tried to pull a gun on them.  After arresting the man, Police then proceeded to steal his personal property as well as destroy some of his property by denonating explosive on his property.

Aside from claims by the officers on the scene, there is no evidence or history of criminal wrong-doing on the part of Mr. Hinkle to believe that he would assault fellow officers, or pull a gun on them.

"Authorities" claim that the man is innocent until proven guilty in a court of law by a jury of his peers. Mr. Hinkle is out on $10,000 bail - clearly the judge didn't think the man was a major threat to society, but the police destroyed his belongings and stole his possessions anyhow.

This story on the heels of an Illinois Governor who had his office taken from him without due process as Tom DeSeno notes.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, be weary of the power the police and politicians wield, having a large weapons cache is NOT illegal in this once great nation, nor should it be. More importantly, you do still have some rights in this country, I think.
