NJ Man Jailed in Bogus Gun Bust

When 33-year-old Jersey City resident and gun owner Keith Pantaleon went to bed on January 24, he never imagined he would spend the next 35 days in a prison cell.

Pantaleon, an African-American Wall Street technology specialist who told The Daily Caller he was threatened by police during his arrest, is a victim of “draconian” and possibly even racist law enforcement, according to his attorney. Police were in his home without a warrant when they discovered what the attorney says were his legally purchased firearms.

“What they did was criminal at best,” Pantaleon said, describing how he frantically reached for a day planner containing his firearm when he heard strange noises at the entrance to his apartment.
