Stand4Keith & Fight Police Tyranny in NJ

" not only will I sue, I will make sure that it is never possible for something like this to happen in NJ ever again." part of a message from Keith sent 2/6/2013 from Hudson County Correctional Center where he is being wrongfully detained. 

 

This is my friend Keith who was wrongfully arrested in his home without warrant or probable cause by the NJ Police department!!!

 
On Thursday January 25th around 10:30 pm, Keith was in his apartment when he heard a noise outside of his bedroom door. The 2nd time he heard it he opened the door and found someone standing in his living room. Not knowing what was going on he did have his notebook in his hand which contained his weapon that he has in his home for protection. When he looked towards his front door he saw that it was opened and the landlord was outside the door with a police officer. When the man in the living room turned around he saw that he was also an officer so he threw his notebook containing the weapon on the bed. The officer asked what it was he threw on the bed and barged into the bedroom. When he discovered it was a weapon he arrested Keith right inside of his home. 
 
This event was reportedly differently by the NJ.com in the following news article:
 
 
Keith is a funny, outgoing, chivalrous, thoughtful, and conscious individual who vocally advocates for civil rights, the 2nd amendment, gun rights and public awareness of policies that affect us. Keith is also a highly educated man who attended college at NJIT and worked on Wall St. as an IT Specialist. His interest are acting ( he is a member of the Screen Actors Guild), films, and capoeira.  Right now he is currently sitting in Hudson County Correctional Center on charges of having weapons in his home. To my knowledge the weapons he owns were legally purchased. Keith also has no priors or criminal record having never been to jail before. We need to raise $26,500 to cover his legal fees and get him out of this situation immediately, and restore his life. Please help me do this by donating to this cause. Any donation will be appreciated. Thank you!

Yesterday, February 4th, I received an email from Keith through a special inmate email service I set up for him. He was able to tell me the details of the charges and shed more light on what happened to him. These are his words:

 

"The charges are unlawful possession of my 2 handguns, unlawful possession of my rifle, unlawful possession of my ammo and felony possession of an assault rifle. The cops claimed the third floor tenant called because he did not have heat in his apt, and the boiler just happened to be in my apartment. I don't know what the landlord told him.
They had no warrant nor did they have my consent.They did not Mirandize me until after 15 hours of no sleep, no food and no water."

 

They did not ask him about his receipts, or legality, they're weren't even let into the apartment by him or with his knowledge WHILE HE WAS AT HOME!!!! They didn't knock, the landlord just let the police walk in. The police searched his room when they suspected he was hiding something, found his weapon, and arrested him. As of last night he was moved into the inmate population and now, this law abiding citizen who has never been to jail, did everything he was supposed to do growing up, staying out of trouble, going to college, protesting and speaking out for our Civil Rights and liberties, acquiring and maintaining a professional career in computers at a lucrative establishment, and giving back to the community by tutoring kids and sharing his theatrical talents, now sits among hardened criminals, repeat offenders who have done nothing but take away from society. The very population whom he has worked so hard to make sure we keep our rights to bear arms to protect ourselves from, is now the community that surrounds him. WE MUST GET HIM OUT OF THERE!!!! He needs an attorney fast and he needs bail or bond ($75,000 or 10% of that). Please donate whatever, whenever, and as often as you can to help us meet our goal. Thank you everyone for your continued prayers and support.
