I recently separated from a significant other. My friend

I recently separated from a significant other. My friend Matt rented a room at the Extended Stay America for me in his name. My daughter has her own room in her name down the hall from me. We have both obtained residency here as well.I have a close friend, AJ, on felony probation that is going in to a legitimate business with my friend Matt. He is doing nothing illegalThe police encountered my friend AJ in the parking lot of the hotel at about 10, 1030 at night and detained him. They accompanied him to my daughters room. She showed them her ID and they ran her name which came back clear. She works full time and goes to school. She also allowed them to search her room and there was nothing. They left.AJ came to my room and dropped some stuff off to me, remembered he forgot something in the car and went down to get it. My daughter called me to go with her to the store and I began dressing. My daughter came to my room right after he left, I told her to go I would meet her downstairs. I was in the bathroom when she left and I heard her start screaming. As it became known after the police had forcefully detained her in the hall, cuffed and dragged her down the hall. As I flushed the police came in with a key they had obtained from the hotel without a warrant or permission. I didn't even see the officers as 2 tackled me a 3rd pulling me up by my hair when I started to collapse from the first two. I was thrown over the desk and cuffed. I asked where their warrant was and was told they didn't need one when I had someone like aj around, they were doing a felony probation search. There was no probation officer present. They dragged me down the hall with my pants open and got my information. I did have a misdemeanor warrant from a ticket last year I had not received notification to go to court on so I had missed it. I was arrested and taken to jail. My room was thoroughly destroyed after I was taken away with them looking for anything they could find and there was nothing there to find. There was no type of activity prior to this happening that would have given anyone any cause to call the police for any reason. Is any of this legal? What can I do

It happened today on fB someone made a posting a military page asking for someone to do an illegal service. I contacted the admin and asked them to delete the post and they didn't want to.

I was denied buying a firearm due to failing the NICS check.

I was denied buying a firearm due to failing the NICS check. My state is Mississippi. I have had 4 misdemeanor charges in my past, but they were dismissed except for one contributing to the delinquency of a minor. I plead no contest on that charge but it's been resolved, no longer an issue. The only ongoing court case is one marijuana paraphernalia charge. I just have to pass some pee tests then it will be dismissed. Never been arrested or charged for any felonies, violent charges, domestic violence, misdemeanors exceeding one year (the contributing was one year exactly). I'm not on probation nor received any papers saying I'm prohibited from weapons. I've never actually been charged with a possession of an actual controlled substance either, just marijuana paraphernalia and a contributing to the delinquency of a minor.Am I still allowed to purchase and possess firearms? Do I have grounds to appeal my NICS denial?
