I think if he had been just a mountain man survivalist type with out the criminal activities he's been accused of they'd probably just left him alone...I don't idolize him actually I pity him...thats one messed up individual. I think when it's all said and done he do some time.
Just tells you that you need to consider security when you look at your mountain cabin. Cameras are great for being able to check on your property remotely but very good shutters can't be beat. Instead of a picture of the burglar, you have a trespasser that decides the next cabin will be easier than yours and moves on.
