THE SAGA CONTINUES. WHEN HUNTER WENT TO GET HIS SUV BACK, THE COPS ... did %^$@!-ing typical cop things. How disgusting these creeps are! And they expect other people to have respect for "lawnorder"? Faugh!
Read Sunni's update.
FROM SUNNI 1/10/04
I just heard from Don Lobo, who's had a tiring, stressful day and wasn't much in the mood for talking. A fuller picture will emerge once he's home and rested, but here's what he told me.
Getting the Pathfinder back was the usual bureaucratic c-f^*k. The trooper took his sweet time getting the paperwork, and when they got to the impound lot, although it was well within its hours of operation, it was closed. They called, and waited a while for someone to come release his SUV.
Finally, it was released -- and in disarray. The battery was dead, and the interior looked as though a tornado had been through it. All the Christmas gifts he'd had in it for friends were opened. Nothing was visibly damaged.
These items are among the things NOT returned by the OHP:
all firearms; includes those on his person, and those stowed in the locked box
Lord of the Rings swords, and other swords
Hunter's certificate from being made a Liberty Round Table Knight Defender
International Society for Individual Liberty (ISIL) pamphlets
work laptop computer
That last item -- the computer -- was not listed on the receipt. Oddly enough, the machete, which was mentioned in the reports as being part of his "arsenal", *was* returned, as was a double-edged axe he also had in the SUV.
Lobo described the experience -- which was captured on video -- as "stomach-churning" for him. I can imagine what it must have been like for Hunter. He is driving the Pathfinder home, but may not keep it, for obvious reasons.
Carl met up with them in Ohio, and is escorting Hunter home.
Please forward this message to anyone you know who has an interest in Hunter's story. I'll continue to keep you updated as I'm able. I continue to receive contributions for Hunter -- thank you all so much for helping him so generously. The LRT contributions page will be updated with new information on how to contribute or help Hunter, too (we've still not heard back from KeepandBearArms on getting a credit card donation page set up).
(BUT NOTE FROM CLAIRE: We do have PayPal and e-gold!)
