Without provocation, the police demanded to know what he had in his hand and was led back into the bedroom, where the police identified the gun case, confiscated it and searched his apartment for other weapons, confiscating them all and charging him with possession of illegal firearms and magazines.
In a Constitutional nation this would not be possible. The entrance of Keith’s apartment was through no legal action by the police. If the tenant had an issue there are legal means of working those issues out without contacting the police. Even so, the entrance of the police into Keith’s apartment was unassociated with Keith. Their demand to know what Keith had in his hand was an illegal demand since Keith was not a suspect, nor did the police have any reason to believe that Keith had or was about to commit a crime.
The problem with this nation is that violations of rights are not crimes in themselves. Passing an illegal law is not a crime in itself. Violations of oaths are not crimes in themselves. These actions result in the illegal imprisonment of millions of citizens across the nation. Keith Pantaleon is but one.
But, what price tyranny? Who pays for these actions of government officials? The police do not pay a penalty for having violated the rights of citizens. Politicians do not pay for their transgressions against the Constitution. Without penalty, there is no law, there is no rectification. The system ceases to function as intended.
Until there are consequences for these actions there will never be a Restoration.
