INDIANAPOLIS – FBI agents seized thousands of artifacts Wednesday from a 91-year-old man’s private collection at his home in rural central Indiana and says it will return the items that were wrongfully in his possession Donald Miller, from Waldorn, amassed the collection over eight decades, the FBI said. The items include artifacts from Native Americans, Russia, China, and other nations.

Comments:
This is too much. It has to stop. Our Government is overstepping and taking too much control. It must stop now.

This is certainly the highest and best use of FBI personnel.

Guilty until you prove your innocence. Government confiscates property with no trial or anything. What a way to spend your final years in a country you thought believed in freedom and the rule of law.

But the FBI has insufficient resources to investigate Fast & Furious, fraudulent donk voting, or Black Panther voter intimidation intimidation at polling places on election day.

The article says the artifacts were legally acquired.

Why is the FBI involved? Who or what told them about this man´s collection?

#6 - probably illegal wiretapping, eavesdropping, and snooping through email, twitter, and facebook.

Who is this fbi agent to say "some items were acquired improperly?" Then he says other items were obtained legally before laws affecting them were on the books. So, the fbi exercised gestapo tactics and seized Mr. Miller´s entire collection, without filing any criminal charges. This case smells of political persecution.

All those who trust the FBI raise your hands.
All those who think the FBI was outside the law when they confiscated these items, raise your hand. All those who think the FBI needs to set their priorities in order of importance raise your hand.

Dr. Don Miller had done work on the Space station, had Russian contacts, and probably had information or things of interest to State Dept, Defense Dept, and others in Obama´s administration. So what did they do? Raid his place and take everything. I doubt if the real purpose had anything to do with Indian artifact. I understand he was a WWII patriot.

Story is very inadequate. But it is news reporting and that is to be expected.

Not one actual allegation is made?

It sounds like the winner will be that Professor Of Anthropology. He will end up be paid quite handsomely to arbitrate what part of a life-long hobby Miller is allowed to enjoy or pass on to heirs.

And, as the Professor says, ´it will likely take a lot of time´.

Owning an eagle feather is a crime. Is this a great country? Or what?

This is an outrage! Mr. Miller collected these items over eight decades! How can the FBI come into a private home and confiscate acquired possessions?

This is a little town in Shelby county where I grew up in Indiana. While I lived in the county seat town, my aunt and four of her seven grown children and their families lived in Waldron. When I was growing up, it was almost a forgotten town and that was fifty years ago. I spent a whole lot of my childhood visiting there with my aunt and my cousins. To go there one had to deliberately get off of U.S. 421. It is a town where almost everyone knows everyone. I simply can´t conceive of the FBI going into this sleepy little town and seizing a 91-year-old´s possessions. I can´t tell if the FBI had a search warrant.

I´m going to contact an attorney in my hometown who was a classmate of mine in high school to find out more.

Last I read there was no basis for asserting anything illegal had ever been done.

But some Professor was going to be paid as a consultant, perhaps forever, to sort through the material and dictate what happens to it.

I still have a couple of silver trinkets from high school, I dated a Native American for a year - at the time the poor girl was still Indian - so I´m probably a criminal too.

w/o more info speculation is just that. Just hope this is resolved fairly.

Can D.C. survive ´unstoppable´ ice melt?

What will become of the nation´s capital? The huge West Antarctic ice sheet is slowly collapsing, and two groups of scientists say the melting is now an unstoppable event. Melting ice will cause sea levels to rise higher than initially projected, which is cause for concern for D.C.-area scientists and local urban planners. The rising seas will affect local treasures, including the Chesapeake Bay and the country's iconic monuments along the National Mall.

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America.

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
