    Immigration cuts up truck, doesn't repair it

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...3#ht_500wt_983

    In case the auction ends:

    We are selling this 2007 Honda Ridgeline, at it's low price because of the damage it contain's. This 2007 Honda Ridgeline was seized by the U.S Immigration in Oct. of 2009. They cut the truck up to find out that there was nothing illegal. They kept the truck for about 4 months, because i would not go pick it up till they fixed it. I purchased an Attorney but he said that there was really nothing that we could do, they were just trying to do there job. So now i just have it parked here in my carport. This 2007 Honda runs great, the motor is like new,and everything works great , it's just the damage in the back. When this incident happened, I purchased another vehicle, so this Honda is now just taking up space.
    Two sad things about this:

    They could have removed some bolts to get the inner bed panels off. Instead, they went at it with pneumatic cutters. Sheer indifference to the owner's property.

    The lawyer the owner contacted said there is nothing to be done about this. I would assume that if the government damaged my property they should make me whole. Just as if a government car had run into me.

    That would have me fuming mad but it seems that that immigration is allowed to do what ever the want and no one will touch it (like that Lawyer).

    The truck is a total loss because what they cut were structural members.

    In a free country, with the rule of law - you'd be right.

    But that's not America.

    The government can do more or less whatever it wants now.
