Because I had found two players in the Walmart Theft Ring that had been convicted and served their relatively short sentences, I was curious about Johnny Pockets. Why had he not been convicted? There was little doubt in my mind he put this whole thing together. So I did a little research and deep googled him. Which means basically going past the 1st page on google, most people don’t. I found out Johnny owned a Jewelry shop in Rockland and guess what? He was back selling on ebay. He was selling things like Rolex watches and very expensive jewelry. Well, that answers the question of Where all the money is. But what I couldn’t wrap my head around was: Why was law enforcement letting him own a business again and allowing him sell on ebay?!?! Did he somehow dodge the charges? Was he working with law enforcement like Whitey Bulger-style? Giving them information in exchange for no charges and allowed to keep breaking the law?
OMG. Then it hit me:
Conjecture Time: Johnny Pockets has painted me as either the leader of his Walmart Theft Ring or maybe I’m the “middle-man” between his little operation, and a HUGE, very sophisticated East Coast mafia-style Walmart Theft Ring. Maybe he sold me to Homeland Security as a dangerous guy, who threatened him and his family. I don’t know.
But how could law enforcement be falling for whatever crazy tales he was weaving?
One of those versions of the story falls in line and answers a lot of mysteries pertaining to my "case", but there are still holes and things I just don’t know.
I do know this final thing about Johnny Pockets: by looking at his numbers on ebay, Johnny had a hell of a good Christmas in 2018. When I realized all of this, I told the only person on earth that I trusted. I told Heidi, and I’m not sure when she started talking to Homeland Security, but shortly after Christmas Johnny Pocket’s ebay account no longer existed.
Lastly, just a few thoughts on Kunaki, which is a website where the user can upload any media file, (audio or video) and the artwork you want on your CD or DVD, and Kunaki will mass produce it and mail it out for a very small fee. A tremendous site and very efficient. There was much discussion during my trial about why I switched to Kunaki for lostmoviefinder.com. But because of my appeals I don’t want to say too much. Just that it’s a great site and if you create Indy music or films and want to distribute on physical media, take look into them.
