X Roanoke Landlord Bill White Is On The Run From The Feds

The Federal Marshals say former Roanoke landlord Bill White is on the run. I've been told that Bill lost the rest of his houses when making some deal with a bank for rehab money. I have 2 of them. Apparently Bill backed out after a while and gave up the properties. Another guy is now in charge of rehabbing them and once they are rehabbed he has a deal with the bank to purchase them.

The next news on Bill was that he was facing another 2 months in prison. Something happened that lead the courts to overturn a decision that a former judge made which required 2 more months to be served. It seems that he was being charged a second time for the same crime which I thought was illegal.

He then found himself in court again for distributing fliers for a book he wrote called "The Centuries of Revolution: Democracy, Communism, Zionism." Apparently they got him on littering charges and it appears they did this because they were not happy with the books content or politically incorrect content of the flyer.

There are many ways the government can go after a person if they are not happy with the message that they deliver to the public. We have a 1st Amendment in the United States Constitution that gives the people freedom of speech. And that freedom is supposed to include unpopular speech or politically incorrect speech. People have the right to say or believe as they wish whether you like it or not. And you have the same right to reject the message that they are conveying.

Bill was convicted of this crime of littering in Augusta County General District Court. He appealed and didn't show up to the trial and was fined $250 and ordered to pay $164 in court costs.

A criminal conviction is a violation of his probation. His littering charge is a criminal charge but a misdemeanor.

The Government is on the hunt for him. They found that he is no longer at his house as he is supposed to be.

Update: Bill White was caught in Mexico.
