Terry Honeycutt Did Nothing Wrong - And Response

Tuesday, June 17, 2014

I have followed Terry Honeycutt's trial and the whole story behind the Polar Pure incident at the Brainerd Army Navy Store. Unless there were specific details that have been kept from the public, I don't see how Terry was convicted of anything.  He noticed a craze surrounding the product and notified authorities, even going so far as to compile a notebook of purchasers in case the authorities wanted to see it. He is repaid with a lengthy trial and a conviction. He wasn't getting any kickback from the sale of it; he was salary.

My favorite quote from a previous new story states that an undercover agent was freely able to obtain a bottle of Polar Pure. Duh.  It was a legal product, sold in stores and unregulated. Just like when I bought my first bottle of Polar Pure from Brainerd Army Navy back when I was in Boy Scouts.

It was the most efficient water purifying system out there. I had tried the purifying pumps and the purification tablets. The pumps are large and cumbersome, the tablets leave an iodine taste. Polar Pure uses crystals to create a solution, of which you add a capful to your water bottle and wait an hour. It is undetectable and all you have to do is to top the bottle back off so that it is ready for next time. I used from the time I was about 11 or 12 until I was out of Scouts. Just to double check, I went to the basement and found my bottle in my camping supplies.  

I don't understand how Terry Honeycutt can be convicted of selling an innocent product without proof that he was doing malicious dealings. Perhaps his brother was and that is why Tony pleaded guilty. Perhaps they took two different defenses in order to keep the business open by staggering the time they were litigating. But it brings about some other questions, most specifically, can you be liable for selling a product, if someone intends to misuse it? Is Wal-mart going to get in trouble for selling household chemicals if someone buys them to make meth with? Are we going to go after Boy Scouts for possessing Polar Pure, since it is "pretty much meth?"

Go to Polar Pure's Website and see for yourself. You will find out that Polar Pure is no longer available and that when Terry Honeycutt was selling the product, he was doing so legally.  

It's a real shame what has occurred

Tim Giordano is 100 percent correct. I sat in on most of the court proceedings and it was a total travesty of justice.
