NJ Gun Owner Arrested For Possession Now Released on Own Recognizance

On Thursday January 25th, New Jersey police officers entered the apartment of Keith Pantaleon without permission, warning, warrant or explanation. After entering the apartment, they apparently had suspicion of him having a weapon, though none were visible. The police then searched his home and found multiple firearms. Keith is a legal gun owner who is registered and has permits for his firearms in multiple states. Keith’s bail was set for $75,000 but after looking over his case, a judge dropped the bail and he was released on his on recognizance. He is currently waiting to be indicted.

      Yea…I can see any policy that bribes people for info suddenly becoming a hotbed of wasted investigations and failed arrests. (Interesting sidenote…a similar policy is part of how so many people wound up in Guantanamo Bay despite a total lack of actual evidence. Locals were offered cash for information…a lot of Guantanamo’s early residents (almost all of whom have been released) were people caught up in the crossfire when someone took cash to give a name and just picked them …probably out of spite.)

        that happened when I was in iraq, people would sell names of “bathists” or “fedayeen” and eventually “terrorists” to U.S. forcess, we would round the poor bastards up who usually turned out to be just farmers and by the time they were questioned and released “somebody” would have raided their homes and stole everything while all the men were away and couldn’t defend it.
