    As usual they try and blame it on the Teamsters union. This 75 year old guy was retired and working as a courier for a company that apparantly doesn't have any ties with the union. And the best they can come up with are his name was mentioned in allegations back in the 1990s
    Perhaps he was just a 75 year old man, didn't believe in banks, or was transferring his retirement to another form of investment.
    Anything is possible, perhaps it had something to do with the courier company he worked with.
    Sensationalism by the media, put a story out and see if it flies.
    If not, move on to the next story.

    Do you really get called that crazy? If I heard someone saying that, think I would have to put them in their place big time.
