CaptureA New Jersey woman found herself in more trouble than she bargained for when she decided to protest at a tax dispute forum by reading the Constitution.

In fact, the act of reading the Constitution led to Eileen Hart being arrested, handcuffed to a chair, charged with terroristic threats, and pressured to hand over her firearms.

Here is a brief summary via The Blaze:

  • Eileen Hart objected to a state re-evaluation of her property value that would drastically increase her tax rates
  • She read the Constitution at a tax dispute forum and called one of the appraisers a “pencil-pusher”
  • One of tax officials called 911 saying Hart threatened to return with a gun, but she unequivocally denies the claim
  • Hart was charged with making “terroristic threats” and told that if she didn’t turn over her weapons, her bail would be prohibitively high and it was unclear how long she would have to remain in jail

Hart was quoted in the Blaze article as saying, “If quoting the Constitution makes me a terrorist, we are in Hitler’s America.”
