First that is an obvious illegal search and seizure – No probable cause except as the police say they “recognized him” OK – so what are they saying? He is a criminal because he is the victim of having his family murdered by NOBODY has been convicted of anything and Thank God in this great country of ours one is presumed innocent unless proven guilty.
Tyler is close the top of his class at Glynn Academy and doing very under inconceivably difficult circumstances.

Pepper Spray -(which I have almost ordered myself over the Internet a couple of times) is a Defensive non-lethal “weapon. It sounds like a scared kid who draws way too much Unwanted attention in a small town. He has done nothing wrong. People don’t but pepper spray to attack anyone. I think it is obvious to Anyone – People buy pepper spray to defend themselves. I think this says a lot more about how safe Tyler feels anything else.

I have a Swiss Army Knife in the pencil holder in front of me. Had it for years. I use it as a letter opener. It is not illegal to carry it. I think the law is over 3 or 4 inches is illegal. A small folded pocket knife.

Arrested and jailed for it!!

** I was (rightly) corrected in my other post where I referring to Tyler Hinze as a 17 year old minor. Under Georgia law he is was not a minor at age 17. My apologies.

Again if I were found with those items even if the policeman decided to pursue it I wouldn't be held overnight in jail. This is just plain WRONG !

glynn academy is located amongst several public streets. Tyler was seen during school hours walking down the street adjacent to the campus when he should have been in class. The school resource officer recognized him as STUDENT Tyler Heinze. The school resource officers did everything right by stopping him and going through his bookbag. They would have done any other student that way that was skipping class and returning to campus. It was suspicious activity. I am very thankful they are vigilant at keeping our students safe. I have 2 children in the school system and they have their bookbags checked randomly for no reason. Every student and parent signs a glynn county school system contract stating they know the rules and what behavior is expected. Tyler knew the items in his bookbag were prohibited and against the law! I have no doubt my children would have been treated the same way and do not see a problem with it. He broke the law. It is very unfortunate that we live in a time that our children are not safe from their classmates going on a killing spree or harming them. In glynn county, if 2 students get in a fight - both are charged with battery and if they are under age they go to juvenile court, but if they are 17-18 they are treated like adults. I can't imagine the things Tyler has to endure by mean people everyday at school and really do feel sorry for what he has been through but what he did was against the law and there are consequences.
- This is also the same person who last July was robbed,he grew up in this town and Darien all of his life, he knew he was in a drug area and his story just does not add up! I am sure you have a high crime area where you live. Would you ever think this is a great place to walk your dog and walk down the street counting $400? Here is a link in case you didn't know about it.

Well put Glynn Resident. My child is at Greer Elementary, with the same rules and guidelines in place. I am sick to death of these people defending this kid. It was a little tiny skinning knife, it was only a Swiss Army knife. It was just a small can of pepper spray....
Give me a break!!!!
He knew what he was doing was wrong. And his story of "returning a found dog" in a known drug dealing neighborhood and getting robbed of a large sum of money? Please!

I agree Brunswick Native. I don't think it was a national story. True, my own home town paper was similar and printed the school lunch menus among other things. No photos of anyone under 18 as that is the state's "age of Majority". Not for nothing but I didn't read this in The Brunswick News I read it in The Florida Times Union which also owns it's online version which is Jacksonville.com

"The Florida Times-Union is a leading provider of news and information for readers and advertisers in north Florida and south Georgia.

Honestly, not a single one of you understand his situation and neither do I. I can not fathom having to live every day knowing my whole was murdered, especially if I'm being told my own brother did it. You are all wrong, students are not searched if they suspiciously walk on to campus. If that were the case I would be searched everytime I arrive late to school. Guess what, it hasn't ever happened to me or my friends. I actually had a class with Tyler, and I sat beside him. He was nice, sensible, and smart. I don't blame him for bringing pocket knives to school, most of the guys do. High school is not a safe place. Trust me, I'm there everyday. Whether physical or emotional bullying, it happens everyday. The administration is oblivious to the things happening around them. But it happens, and no matter what they do, it won't stop.

gastudent...if you bring knives to school you deserve to be punished also. WHY are you bringing them to school? Do you think a knife fight will help kids feel safe? I am not wrong, school kids CAN be searched, nobody said they are always searched. It sounds like to me the school police need to be more vigilant about searching book bags of you and your friends are packing knives everyday!It is AGAINST THE LAW, no matter who you are. You are breaking the law and see no problem with it?!?!
Bullying does happen every day and something should be done about it, you are right. However, taking the law into your own hands by bringing knives is not the answer.

glynnresident, you have no reason to victimize me. I have never done any of the above. So, don't use the word "you", even if it is just a generalization. However, I do see it happening everyday. I experience it you don't. Your whole idea of a "knife fight" is ludaris. A student could stab a person just as easily with a car key as they could with a pocket knife. So, does that mean they should make it illegal to drive to school? No one is trying to "take the law into their own hands", some students just need a security blanket. Because, no one provides it for them. We go to school on an open campus, anyone can just walk on. We are in lots of danger, SRO's cant hover over and protect all students at all times. At any point in time, a drug dealer, rapist, etc. could walk on campus and no one would have a clue. I live this everyday, about 75% of guys bring pocket knives to school and in my 3 years as a student, a pocket "knife fight" has never occurred. This town just likes to make a big deal out of nothing.

Hey Tyler,

I posted here that I know your brother did not do it and that they are applying leverage to you in hopes you will crack and give something up on Jr.{My post was deleted, BTW} As you know, Glynn County cops and McIntosh County cops are as crooked as can be. They are going to nail you for every little infraction they can in order for you to say something against your brother. Kinda like a "no peace" deal- you will get no peace from them.

Anyway, based on the story, you were not on school property so this has nothing to do with the school and the knife was a legal one. So what's the issue??? Jr is. In their efforts to hang him, they are going to hound you to death. If I were you, I'd leave town until the day the trial is to start. If you decide to stay, document everything they do and say to you and sue the crap out of them for criminal harrasment and a host of other things. Your attorney will advise you on that, but KEEP CLEAR AND ACCURATE records of ALL contacts with the mob squad.

Tyler...I'm trying to get someone to help your brother and to get some attention on this case. I've been following it for a while and found someone who is a friend of a friend on facebook who advocates for people without a voice in the 'justice' system. I don't think Guy has a voice and I think he needs some help. Please email me at countingbackwards@msn.com so I can get you in touch with this guy and so you can tell me if there is any way I can help. Sorry about the school thing. That sucks. They've done stuff like that to my kids before...not as serious as a gun, but people have their reasons for what they do. Obviously I'm sorry about your family also. Good luck.
