    There has to be a lot more to this story.
    This man was a special forces solider a long time ago and had major gvmt clearances.
    He was my step dad for a very long time
    Never was he ever mean hostile or any other form of aggressive toward me or my mother
    This is the man who taught me to change a tire my oil and how to start a camp fire....
    Unfortunately the media will only tell you what they need to boost ratings.
