Bill Coopers death

While it is true that Bill was killed by the Apache County sheriffs department, they were not there on the tax issue. I used to listen to Bill on the shortwave, and had quite a bit of communication with him, both by phone and email up until the day before he was shot on his front porch. He was a cantankerous and short tempered man, to be sure, but the Apache County Sheriffs department bears most of the blame for trying to set up an ambush on him at 1 o'clock in the morning by posing as drunken teenagers trespassing on his property. It is a complex story, and would be tough to shorten here.
