Default Fact or Fiction? Riverside couple detained and raided?

I run a Texas-based FB and internet site called Texas Shooting Sports, and one of my contacts sent me the link below. One BIG lesson I've learned - fact check everything. I'm finding no 3rd-party verification of this, and am hoping one of y'all might have heard something on this, or can even put the "knife of truth" through the allegations.

Thanks!!

Thanks, guys! I really had a feeling this was a "fake news" type story, because normally this kind of thing hits my radar from several different sources - and what little I DID find all circled back to that story above.

Just wished knew how to flag that GoFundMe site to warn 'em about it, too - because it looks to me like he's fleecing some folks.

That was pretty detailed story to just dismiss it based on "rapsheets" .com bs posts.

Why don't you contact the author and gofundme promoter?

Experience has taught me that finding an explosive story in a single source - a story which should be covered by multiple sources if even remotely accurate - is a sure-fire way to find yourself on the receiving end of fake news. I've eaten MORE than my share of crow that way.......

There was another thread about this the other day. I'll see if i can find it. IIRC the consensus was it is BS.

No defining details, vapid reporting, long-winded ambiguous references, the only source appears to be this "Free Thought Press" even when other sources on the internet are sharing the story (they always reference this one article)... followed by the obligatory GoFundMe page.

So here you have the other side of the spectrum from those using the race-card or religion-card, of a highly charged drama with no real details focused on people with passionate ideas about the world to con them into donating money to "our plight" that all comes from only one source.

No other corroborating details on the internet anywhere, not witness support, no other accounts. An event like this would not go unnoticed and only have one weak source that is vacuous on info.

Fake cancer stories, fake crisis victim stories, fake government done us wrong stories (whether out of race or gestapo drama) it's all the same and all too frequent from the GoFundMe scammers.

Calling big-time BS.

I know that article says it was an exclusive but I figured info would get out somewhere else like a local la station or at least the PE but nothing I even looked to see if the sheriff have any info about it on the press releases page. Soo

Edit when did this happen, I was assuming recently because the article is new but his arrest was 6 months ago which may be why I can’t find anything
