PJ Vinch is a star on reality TV show on TRUTV called “Bear Swamp Recovery”, where he repossesses cars, trucks, buses, and even a Zamboni for finance companies.
He was also recently raided by local cops, a SWAT unit with automatic weapons, federal agents and a helicopter.
What does six squad cars…the Captian of my local police department, SWAT, one Federal Agent and Helicopter have in common? A inspection at my house fearing someone put a bunker full of Guns near a creek that floods every other week next to my house. REALLY? My family has lived there since the 50′s, you could not just ask? Knock on my door? Guns drawn, know what they found? A deer blind..that was made of two pieces of fence bought at Home Depot. And you wonder why people are mistrusting of government. FEDERAL MARSHALS WITH HELICOPTER CALLED FOR A DEER BLIND.
Let me say that again: he was raided with more than a million dollars worth of military hardware, because some junkie informant thought a makeshift deer blind was a bunker.
Hell of police state you’re running there, Chris Christie.
Vinch is also a crusty, acerbic Second Amendment advocate with a Twitter stream full of tweets like these, just days before the raid.
I’m sure his opposition to the President’s assault on the Constitution has nothing to do with the raid. Aren’t you?
This is the second known military-style raid on “preppers” in a little over a month based upon the word of informants, and I hasten to add, “known.” There are quite possibly other raids that haven’t made the news. In neither of these instances are the people raided known to have a violent record.
Update: Terry Porter was raided in MD, not NJ. Last paragraph updated to reflect that.
