Homeland Security raids home to seize Land Rover over EPA violation UPDATE


UPDATE: Video with the victim by Fox News added.
I could not think of a better companion piece to the Lawsuit vote taken yesterday by the House against this out of control government that appears to have no bounds. To all the trolling Obamabots, is this how you wish to live in America? The DHS grabbing your stuff under what purview? Yet, this story barely makes a ripple. Sadly, it is no longer rare. Every single agency is out of control.

Here we go:

In another example of how the Department of Homeland Security has expanded far outside the purview of its original function, six vehicles full of DHS agents were required to seize a Land Rover from a couple in Statesville, N.C. due to the fact that the vehicle allegedly violates EPA emission standards.As part of its mission to “protect the Homeland,” the DHS has been busy seizing imported vehicles that don’t comply with safety and CO2 regulations.

Jennifer and Bill Brinkley were satisfied that their $60,000 dollar purchase of a Land Rover Defender on eBay complied with regulations because it fell into the exemption category of a vehicle 25 years or older.However, when DHS agents turned up at the property, they compared the car’s Vehicle Identification Number to a list and immediately seized the Land Rover. The couple were not given “a chance to debate the issue.”

WBTV’s Steve Ohnesorge said DHS agents conducted “almost like a raid to get the car.”

“it’s just unnerving the way they did it,” said Bill Brinkley.

    Probably one they used years ago and still had some evidence in it they were concerned about … Anymore, anytime the DHS or any octopus arm of this Regime is involved – driving that many vehicles – they’re protecting one of their own, at the high expense of others. Or, Leaner liked and wanted one, as that was the closes one available at the time.

    Just a funny short story. In the mid ’80’s I bought a ’79 K-5 Blazer. Forget how exactly I found it. Probably in little local paper called ‘Penny Shopper.’ Met a fellow at my bank, paid cash for it and got title, and recorded it. Several week later I was visited at work by Florida Department of Law Enforcement officer. He said the guy I paid was supposed to deliver it to someone in a nearby city. Delivery guy had signed title by present owner.
    Officer was very nice, said registration was valid and that both the seller and deliverer were in jail. He said I’d likely never here anymore. I never did. Still have it. Use it for a little yard work now and then.
    Guess that was officer discretion back then.

      Lucky you. This could just as well been a DEA confiscated car that came back around again. My hunch.

    That car could have been a coke mule, or a bomb mule. Smuggling is a pretty serious crime, Bunker.

        Smuggling is a serious crime unless you’re a coyote dropping off human cargo in a semi at the border.
