  • 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







A New Jersey mother was arrested and told to turn over her guns after reading the Constitution and peacefully protesting at a tax dispute forum, she says.
Eileen Hart was with her husband Keith and her 7-year-old daughter on Saturday at the Gloucester Community Center to dispute a mandatory home re-evaluation that would roughly double her property value (and therefore dramatically increase her rates), objecting on multiple grounds. As an Orthodox Jew, she refused to have the inspectors in her home when her husband was away at work. As an American citizen, she objected to the seemingly arbitrary reappraisal, noting that she is not planning on selling her home and hasn’t renovated her kitchen in 30 years.
But at the forum, Hart was allegedly told that since she didn’t let the inspectors into her home, the state has a right to “assume” its value.
“How could they assume that my value had doubled when there is absolutely no housing market?” she asked TheBlaze rhetorically over the phone. “There is basically no GDP growth.”
After Hart started citing the Constitution, a representative of Appraisal Systems, Inc.– the company contracted by the state to conduct appraisals– started “freaking out,” she said, and called for New Jersey tax assessor Robyn Glocker-Hammond.
“Sit down and shut up,” Hart said Glocker-Hammond told her, adding that she (Glocker-Hammond) was there to “enforce the law.”
“I didn’t see a badge,” Hart noted. “Her title is tax assessor, not law enforcement officer.”
Glocker-Hammond started speaking to Hart’s husband like a “two-year-old,” Hart claimed, and after she objected, Glocker-Hammond once again told her to be quiet.
“I have a right to speak out against this, this is a public place, my tax dollars pay your salary,” Hart objected to the tax assessor, already incredulous at the drastic increase in her rates.
“I don’t work for you,” the assessor allegedly retorted.
At that point, Appraisal Systems, Inc. representative Andrew Colavecchio started advancing towards her, she said, like he was about to grab her arm. “Don’t you dare touch me,” she said after he allegedly got so close he touched her coat.
Glocker-Hammond then told her she had to leave the public forum and threatened to call the authorities, though Hart swears she never cursed or acted inappropriately.
That’s when things got serious.
As Hart left the building she saw Colavecchio “sneering” at her and said to him in passing, “look at the little pencil-pusher.”
Hart said Colavecchio threatened to call 911 and “ran after us in the parking lot like a banshee, his face was purple, [he was] disheveled, [he] started to take down my license plate and ran off. When he got to the doors of the building he screamed at us, ‘let’s see if you can pay your taxes now!’”
Much to her surprise, Hart returned home to numerous police cars, the officers asking if they could bring her in for questioning even though they did not have a warrant. She was not allowed to drive behind with her husband, but was forced to ride in the police vehicle.
Colavecchio had apparently told the police that Hart was “yelling and screaming” and threatened to return to the meeting with a gun.

I can't wait to read what the real story is here.

2 totally different stories and both occurred during normal
business hours so there should be plenty of witnesses.

is anyone surprised? you question these people and this is exactly the type of response you get. they are above questions, or anything less than getting their asses kissed. typical
i gota feeling this woman freaked out and was not going to listen to someone tell her to shut up and sit down, especially not when it comes to the tax subject.
and when she saw the douche bag in the parking lot sneering at her she really must have went batshit. i dont blame her on that, but it prob wasnt the best thing to do, just because this is how these people react when questioned on their 'authority'. at no point do i think this woman said she was coming back with a gun though.
im sure she is screwed though. she may not have to go to jail or anything, but good luck getting those guns back.
btw- they took a cleaning brush and rem oil too? really cocksuckers? are they weapons too?

Worst thing to do with people who can't handle actually having power and authority is to question it. Not saying the Tax cunt does but most assholes with a title have an equally sized or larger ego to accompany it.

I'm curious to see or hear any video or tape recordings of the meeting. I would've refused to talk. The only things I would ask are "am I being charged, and what are the charges?" Also ask for a lawyer if i feel like I'm being interrogated.

I wonder if there is any local ordinance requiring entry into a home for appraisal? But most appraisals are just done by property size not interior improvements unless its major like additions.

Seems to be more to the story like others said. Wonder if she's had previous run ins.

You'd figure that their kind would be a bit more savvy about the law...
