Family Forced From Minivan, Brought To Knees, Held At Gunpoint After Museum Outing

WRIGHT-PATTERSON AFB, Ohio (Derek Drake) — What should have been a fun day at the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force turned into a nightmare for a Columbus, Ohio family who was pulled over and held at gunpoint while leaving the public-accessible portion of the base.

The incident happened on Friday, April 4, 2014 and continues to haunt the family’s thoughts as they try to process exactly what happened.

They say that being held at gunpoint and put in handcuffs was excessive behavior, but the base says they were following their procedures.

“I’m looking at my 8-year-old grandson,” said Alice Hill, who was driving the car at the time they were pulled over. “His eyes are full of tears and he says ‘this is the worst day of my life.’”

My husband and son go to that museum a lot

My son has been trying to perfect paper glider design ever since the last trip and has had so many engine design and aerodynamics questions. My husband's not going to be happy to hear what risk they took in going there. And they wouldn't have been shy about discussing what's wrong there either, so who knows what they could get reported for. Getting pulled over like that would cause my son to become a recluse.

Recently, there was a woman who crashed through a fence at that Air Force Base. It was said a security guard discovered her in the wee morning hours and that she was already dead. I've been wondering what it would take for a crash through a chain link fence to kill you. That's not off topic, is it?

Headline should read:

"Family went on outing to visit military propaganda museum. Learned some truth instead."
After all, war is the health of the State, and a strong State is very scary.

Yes, it can be confusing

It is very confusing when you are a slave and don't know it.. all these things happen and you don't know why...

"The base says they were just following their procedures"... ha ha.. so were the Nazis...

They would fail the Milgram Experiment, for sure: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milgram_experiment

I have to enter an AF museum occasionally

to deliver packages. I often have my Ron Paul T-Shirt on and typically get the stink face look from the statists who work there. I remember the days when I used to be proud of all the cool planes and bombs on display...but since I woke up...I just shake my head at all the sheeple that trek to that place to admire all the MIC's toys of death and destruction.

I know my comment is a bit off topic for this post but it made me laugh when the lady said she told the family they could come back and visit for free and meet some of the security officers, etc. I'm sure thats exactly what those kids want to do now...go hang out with the thugs who handcuffed and kidnapped them. lol

I think its great that they now know that the police ARE the enemy. Its not mayberry anymore.

It's mostly

volunteers at this particular museum, but statists are so prevalent, some might still be. I just tend to think of volunteers as often among the more amenable of the population even when they fall in the more statist end of the spectrum.

The offer was to meet the security officers, but the museum is always free. Taking them upon it might be useful for the boy's therapy if the therapist so recommends, but that doesn't necessarily mean he will be taught they aren't dangerous, it'd be more about addressing some specific PTSD symptoms.

Fire them

If their security 'force' can't use their brains to politely ask for the car registration and drivers license, which would have be the common sense thing to do, then they should be fired.
And they really need to check into the person who reported the supposed theft and that person should be fined for filing a false report.

"My son doesn't trust police officers anymore"

Yeah we're teachin' 'em young these days.

Most of those who think so actually don't and most of those who think sew actually rip.

My thoughts exactly..

Why should your child be trained to trust someone just because they carry a gun and a badge? Those two items mean nothing to me personally. You can usually sort the jackboot thugs from the good guys fairly quickly. One has respect for the people he works for and the other thinks the badge makes him king. I get along very well with one, and the other ones have learned to leave me alone because I don't put up with their shit.
