Skip to comments.Suspect for FBI Raid on 91-Year-Old Indiana Artifact Collector Identified
Posted on 04/05/2014 1:23:10 PM PDT by marktwain
Who accused 91-Year-Old Donald Miller of what has been unclear. Speculation involving his numerous technological achievements have run rampant as people simply did not believe that the government would send 50-100 FBI agents to check out the collection of artifacts that this former member of the Manhattan project had gathered over the last 80 years.
But the unbelievable has become a bit more plausible as more information has dribbled out. Mr. Miller has not been charged with any crime, and maintains his innocence. He claims that all his materials have been collected legally.
Others have speculated that envious collectors associated with the Obama administration are involved, that a museum coveted his collection, or that he is a Republican, and therefore subject to "special" treatment.
The truth may lie somewhere in between. In this article from wthr.com, it is revealed that a leftist Native American group, AIM, has an interest in the case:
An organization representing Native Americans believe human remains are buried among thousands and thousands of artifacts collected by Donald Miller in the U.S. and around the world.
The FBI investigation and massive effort to recover thousands of invaluable artifacts is being watched by the American Indian Movement. Until recently, its local chairman lived only a half-hour away from the Rush County site.
"We are glad something like this has happened," said Albert Runningwolf, American Indian Movement.Is the raid "payback" for support among leftist Native Americans?
Native American group believes remains among Rush Co. artifacts

As I posted earlier, AIM didn’t “believe” a damn thing!
The INVENTED the pretext of “human remains” to make the false report.
They need to be in JAIL for making a false accusation.
The facebook comments on the original WRTV article were being slammed by an apparent Native American Activist from Purdue, accusing Mr. Miller of all sorts of felonies.
Mr. Miller appears to be a straight-up guy who obviously wasn’t trying to flaut the law, since he was allowing groups to tour his home.
Time for some shooting back.
Well if you’re an FBI agent, would you want to be taking down illegal guns and drugs in the ‘hood, or roughing up a 91 yr old guy in the boondocks?
These days, he's in real legal trouble.
As was noted earlier, their are numerous treaties and laws that are rather vague and which make it nearly impossible to live without breaking them.
It is anarcho-tyranny.
There are thousands of laws on the books that should be simply repealed.
Yep, the ‘roid-raging, donut-munching federal cops got that down. If they abuse or murder a few innocents along the way, well, heck, as long as they get home safe before bloated pensions kick in!
Especially a 91 yo that was involved in the Manhattan Project, NASA and was instrumental in the development of transponder technology, among other things
Thanks for the link. I had not seen the post.
He could'a been in cahoots with aliens.
I just want this story out there to as many as possible.
Actually, according to simple English, I’m a native American.
I hope he doesn’t have a dog.
I can’t wait for it to happen.
Don’t be too fast to rule out coyote’ butts as the source of these miscreants.

Well Coyote is known as the trickster!
So, what is the reason for the hundred man swat raid? Was the feral government afraid he was going to flush the evidence? Two agents couldn't show up with a warrant? Is this raid being used to intimidate us?
If 100 agents can be spared to look at arrow heads, congress needs to cut their budget.
I’m a Native American. I was born here too.
Hope he has enough money to lawyer up. The ACLU certainly could not care less about his Constitutional rights. Clearly, nor does the FBI or the fedgov.
He is 91 years old. He is extremely smart and understands bureaucracy. He has chosen to attempt the difficult, but not impossible finesse of the situation with the “I am one of you, and have nothing to hide” defense.
He may be able to pull it off.
I expect he still has contacts, maybe people that he mentored, in high places.
He has not been charged, and they have not taken most of his stuff. Yet.
I wonder if they plan to "Waco" the guy?
You mean they are feather Indians and not red-dot Indians?
And I am a Native American, with all grandparents being born here.
Damn I’m tired of hearing that term. I say they are just natives.
The only tribe to fight with the colonists against England is the Huron as far as I know. And all 3000 of them live in Canada now.
... they’re Native Americans, meaning what....
My ancestry is mostly Irish with a smattering of German, but whenever someone starts that Native American nonsense with me I say that I am Native American because I am an American born in America. I have even checked that box a few times on forms.
See my post 34.
I actually have had a person of American Indian ancestry point a finger at me in a group conservation and say roughly that white people like me are to blame for blah,blah,blah. I firmly and impolitically told him he was stupid and that I was first generation and and my family had squat to do with his supposed issues and that further more the people of my heritage had suffered a hell of lot more than his people ever had. The look of confusion on his face was priceless.
Perhaps they thought he had the crushed hyoid bone from Jimmy Hoffa’s remains that the FBI hasn’t been able to find for what. forty years?
Casino Indians not Call-center Indians.
Exacly...low hanging fruit! Very sad!
Good for you. Really getting sick of all of it.
He's in the arena. I believe he's unlikely to prevail, especially without expensive legal help - though if he has some politicians up his sleeve he may escape with light wounds.
So were all my grandparents and on one side of the fam a couple of generations b4 that.

It figures. Fighting, drinking and collecting other people’s hard earned money is all they know how to do.
The Gov’mint will never leave us alone because WE have the “heritage” of the nation...we were stewards of the land LONG before the white man came with his rules, treaties, and insidious land-grabbing schemes. The latter of which, the government is STILL trying to enforce. But don’t get me started.

Im a Native American. I was born here too.
Me too. I’m a Native American born of ancestors who came to the western hemisphere centuries ago. Plus, I was born here also.
