What is it that provokes them to lie?
Mr. Deputy and friends were attempting to secure a fraud conviction, and had to portray Dennis as a criminal selling no viable technologies. The SAMP Act was a civil law, and a forty-year sentence because Dennis did not file a form would be a stretch, even for them. Mr. Deputy also knew that, which was why he intimidated all of Dennis’s technical people. Several had unimpeachable credentials regarding the technologies, and if any of them testified, Mr. Deputy and friends would have difficulty making the fraud charges stick. Although Dennis’s experts fled, others had experience with Dennis’s heat pump and could credibly testify to its performance. At the preliminary hearing, the "experts" the prosecution paraded onto the witness stand included: two ex-Seattle employees who tried from us a year earlier and had a poor , and in court; an electric company consultant who had never seen Dennis’s heat pump run but testified that it would not work; and a college professor whose experience was limited to once testing a broken system.
In most cases, people lie to protect their personal interests.
We talked awhile about Dennis and our experiences. Gary discussed some of his adventures, and remarked that he was alive primarily because he never broke the law. Otherwise, they would have found an excuse to murder him long ago. Gary was an old-school policeman who believed in the law and its potential for justice. Gary believed that the law could work if properly enforced. While he could not claim many victories while challenging the legal gangsters, he believed he someday might.
