LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Some don’t like being asked questions

By Rusty White | Published Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Some time ago I started asking people on the Messenger’s online forum when, if ever, has there been an audit of all the property, money, vehicles, weapons, etc. taken from citizens by our courts and public servants. I just want to know who is accountable.

Lo and behold, now I am getting threatened with my property being searched. I told the last officer at my gate, you better make sure the warrant is legal – now get off my property! He said, “We will be back!”

Now I do not do very well with anybody attempting to threaten or trying to intimidate me, especially my tax-funded public servants! I told him the warrant better be legal, or I’ll sue! His reply was, “Do you know how many times I have heard that?” No, I don’t, but if it is being said by more and more citizens, you might want to stop and check your priorities and procedures.

I have nothing to hide. I have worked all my life and am still working 60 to 70 hours a week while raising children and grandchildren. I took my mother into my home after her stroke and cared for her for years before having to put her in a home.

Wise County would do well to put their efforts and resources toward those violating the law, instead of attempting to intimidate a 62-year-old soon-to-be great-grandfather.

I know some are just trying to do their job, and unfortunately, they got the brunt of my anger due to me feeling abused. After I calmed down, I made three different phone calls, even though I feel it is an abuse of power to let even one of them come without a warrant to look at my place.

I had a captain call me today, saying I left a message that I needed to talk to him. I said, no, I called and left messages for an officer. I guess by the fact he did not return my calls, he has realized I am not a party to any wrongdoing, and the matter is closed.

Due to all this “unwarranted” attention, sadly I am being forced to research my options with the FBI as to how to protect my home, family and civil rights. Some birthday present!
