Former Rutherford County Sheriff, Robert Arnold, actively participated in the county’s extortion against me. I’m the inventor of the Angle Cosine Indicator/Angle Degree Indicator. My invention was stolen and is produced by Ward W. Brien, Sniper Tools Design Company, Estes Park, CO. During the Great Recession, I discovered that this invention had been stolen and confronted the patent thief. After this email communication, the patent thief must have contacted the Rutherford County government, enlisting them to extort/destroy me. The county forced me into unemployment for over 10 years with 8 years of homelessness, all at taxpayer expense. The Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce was also involved. They blocked my business launch into the firearms industry. Arnold’s boys (shithead deputies) conducted a wrongful arrest directed by Russell Moody, the father of deputy Michael Moody. Russell Moody perpetrated elder abuse against my father, convincing him that my arrest would solve the unemployment problem the county had actually created for me. My father took the bait. Rutherford county DA Jennings Jones has since dismissed that charge to prevent me from exposing the county’s corruption in a courtroom and to keep the incriminating information in that file from investigative reporters. But before the wrongful arrest, another attempt to frame me occurred. Are Robert Arnold and John Arnold related? I remember John Arnold, owner of Specialty Arms II gun store, talking about having a family member in the Sheriff’s Office. When I invented the ACI/ADI I created a document to protect my ownership rights. That document was signed and dated by me, Timmy Lee Green, as the inventor. It was also signed and dated by Rick Krupa, Custom Craft Cabinets, Inc., and Jeff Walle, Specialty Arms II, both as witnesses. When Jeff Walle signed the document, his employment status at the gun store required him to make a copy. So both Jeff Walle and John Arnold had knowledge of my invention prior to Ward Brien filing his provisional patent application in August of 1999. One or both of these individuals are involved with this patent theft. Jeff Walle is the Specialty Arms II arsonist. Jeff is now the gunsmith at Guns & Leather in Greenbrier. That gun store also 'suffered' a fire. Arson committed for insurance fraud purposes and/or in the case of Specialty Arms II, an initial attempt to frame me. The Specialty Arms II gun store had a mold problem. And John Arnold didn’t like the idea of spending money to bring the business up to codes required by the LaVergne government. By committing insurance fraud through arson, he wouldn’t have to pay to resolve those problems. If my memory is correct, the fire at Guns & Leather involved the indoor range ventilation system. Such systems are expensive to install and costly to maintain. But if an ‘accidental’ fire were to damage the system, insurance would pay for the repairs. I find it very interesting that wherever Jeff Walle works as a gunsmith, that gun store soon has a fire.
