    I have known Bill for 27 years and I never would have suspected that he would get caught up in this crazy mess. The report says he pointed an unloaded 10 gauge shotgun at a State Trooper. He must have had a death wish and wanted to get shot. No way anyone points an unloaded gun at a law enforcement official unless they want to die.

  7. all i can say is WOW
  8. Wow is right. The really disturbing thing is his computer has been confiscated by the Bureau of Computer Crimes or some such division. I know for a fact (because he gave me a copy) there was a file on that computer with nearly every contact in the fur, taxidermy, and tanning industry. Including my info, Sivko, and George Roof's info just to mention the people in this thread and that is just the tip of the file, so to speak. I know none of us are connected to this crap, but it is a little unsettling that all of our contacts are included in a confiscated computer. Like the government needed our contacts anyway, they have it all already. But still...

    I have known Bill for 21 yrs. I have been to his house several times. He is very abrasive and opinionated among others things, but he has helped me out and has alot of knowledge. I agree with most of it but not all, we have had arguments and all that but I considered him a friend. This really sucks for him.. Hopefully this will work out. I was most shocked by him pointing a gun at a cop WOW.. But then again they busted in his house early in the morning and he did not know what was going on and reached for a gun, knowing Bill probaly a bit hungover and not seeing clearly. He thought it was a intruder. I was not there so who knows. Just a shit situation all around though. I hope the best for him.
  10. x2. I still don't understand why someone would pick up an unloaded gun and point it at anyone, law enforcement or intruder. It just doesn't make sense. Maybe Bill can tell us all about it one day. I am sure that will be a helluva story. I just hope he gets his act straightened out. I quit having contact with him 2 years ago and I still have quite a bit of his fur equipment that he wanted to sell. Anyone interesed can get in touch with me and maybe we can get some money drummed up for when he gets out of jail...if he gets out. Tough break...
