It's all there in the Rushville Republican. The Federal Government is seizing his Indian artifact collection.
If you're collecting something ... Beware! Big Brother (Obama's federal government) is out to take it from you!

or research the law and follow them. If you don't like that law, then try to change it. Having laws does not = Big Brother is here and you should run around like a scared rabbit.

It's sounding to me like maybe this guy wanted to return some of these artifacts to their original location and get in compliance with some laws at the same time. This guy must be a smart cookie. I wish I had gotten a chance to see the collection.

I'm guessing with 100 Feds that he had uranium or nuclear material. They wouldn't have all the Feds for a few arrowheads (or shrunken heads).

He took stuff that he found on digs out of the countries he was visiting. That is illegal. So the items he dug up has to be returned to the countries he dug them up in.

And that takes 100 feds? They don't send that many for illegal artifacts. They don't send that many for major drug busts. There is something there that is a concern for safety.

It took 100 well trained liberal Feds to take down one 91 year old conservative. The odds sound about right.

The guy had a collection bigger than most museums. You see that huge house? That mansion couldn't hold it. He had multiple buildings on his property holding that collection. Experts from big universities about fell over when they realized the scope of this collection. They have to take each item out, analyze it, log it and box it up for transport. The collection, together with his history of working on the Manhattan Project, is amazing. I also hear he is an expert consultant in the communications field. We have a genius residing in a corner of Rush County. I wish I could have toured his place.

And again, for some relics from 3rd world countries this is over kill. It doesn't take 100 Feds to catalog illegal artifacts. Something else is going on. Ammo? Nuclear secrets?

100 Feds inventorying arrowheads, shrunken heads? No, something else attracted their attention.

It surely won't be long till the facts are out. I don't think conspiracy theories are needed right now. Nuclear secrets? Hahaha. He no doubt played an important part in one the most important scientific breakthroughs of life in the past century.(Maybe THE most important American scientific breakthrough of the past century; the enemy was working on the atomic bomb at the same time. Without the U.S. nailing it first, 80,000,000 more Japs and at least 4,000.000 more Americans would have died and we would now be speaking German.) I believe he was working on the ignition source required to start the chain-reaction that results in atomic explosion. I seriously doubt he continued Nuclear Science work and has any nuclear secrets. If that were the case, there would have been 300 Homeland Security Officers there as well. One fact I hope comes out is the value of that collection. I am thinking it represents a respectable fortune. Didn't it take days to process? I'm sure there wasn't dozens of FBI agents standing around watching a few work. Huge job.

The big thing is -- who ratted on him?
Moscow is in the middle of nowhere. Only the locals knew about him.
So who hated or was so jealous of Don Miller that they called the FBI and ratted him out?
Inquiring minds want to know.

It wasn't a secret cache, brainiac. Someone who is aware of the laws being broken may well have alerted authorities without any jealousy or hatred whatsoever.

How kind and decent of all those feds to help Don Miller do the right thing!
I suspect that we will soon informed that he 'passed away peacefully in his sleep'. The rubber truncheon marks having all healed. But they want him alive till they locate that little notebook he kept on atomic weaponry is found. What a huge national security threat is caused by private museums! How pleased we will all be when those nice FBI men have finished the job off, and what a debt Don owes them!

So now they say some of the stuff was stolen. Stolen property in his hands or stolen property in some dirtbag's hands is the same thing. This is not a victimless crime. Maybe this will calm down all the "paranoid-the govt is out to get us" people. Everyone watch out for the secret "killing of Don Miller for his nuclear secrets" conspiracy.
