    Whomever left a guy out there to rot on the end of a rope is most certainly in the wrong.

    Wasn't sure; it's a common practice for people to bash southerners with comments like "they just do it out of habbit and can't help being anti-gov," so I wanted to double check.

    Re: Census worker hanged, "FED" written on his chest

    I can think of a lot more practical feds to take out than a census worker. But that would be assuming who did this was thinking logically for it to have any impact on this case.

    While I agree Gill's assessment is probably the most likely, I'm not ruling out crazy anti-government redneck cults from Mars. What's more....you can't prove that my belief here isn't correct , so it must be true.

    Kentucky goes after 'Marijuana Belt' growers - USATODAY.com


    When you think about the people in isolated Appalachian and Ozark communities where illegal marijuana farming is predominant (called the "Marijuana Belt,") distrust of ANY stranger is significant, and these folks have always been suspicious of federal law enforcement. I suspect this guy was in the wrong place, wrong time, and ran into some bad guys. It was a pretty standard practice 80-100 years ago to do this to federal agents in these areas. And these types of criminals are hyper-paranoid.

    Yes Joe killing a federal worker because of or in the course of doing their job is a federal crime

    Yep, I read that it is our number one cash crop since tobacco has fallen by the wayside. Believe it or not, there's still a lot of moonshining that goes on in eastern Kentucky. I've gotten some primo shine over there in the past. A buddy got some 5-year old shine that was as smooth as any $50 bottle of bourbon.

    You forgot to mark this post as <sarcasm>.

    You should be careful or people might think you were actually serious.
