I feel like my rights were clearly violated, but the situation is a little complicated so I don't know if there's anything I can do. For starters, police forcibly detained me and handcuffed me and took me for a psych evaluation based off nothing more than my ex wife's word. I shouldn't have to, but because I was making vague suicidal threats, I can accept that. It's after I was taken away that the problem comes. The police then allowed my 18 year old ex step daughter, who doesn't have a permit to possess a gun at all, to enter my house completely unsupervised and take my gun (and anything else she would have wanted) and take it with her to her mother's (my ex wife) house. When I was cleared by a doctor, I asked for my gun back and my ex wife refused. Then I called police and was told I couldn't get my gun and I would have to wait till next day to talk to officer who dealt with my situation. Then 4 hours later, my ex wife turned my gun in to police. The next day I went to police station and they said my gun was evidence and they couldn't let me have it until it was processed and released by chief after anot her background check on me. This all just seems very unconstitutional, especially since my my ex wife was allowed to take my gun to her home for hours, whenjoy the police now say that gun is evidence. If it's evidence, why would they allow someone to take it? And this is all just off of people's words, because my ex wife and step daughter never even had to prove that they were who they said they were, so police could have just allowed any random person to enter my home. Can anyone help me?
