OK. Let's say I want to bring that video to court, to help prove my case.
I saw a man in a home, looking in a closet. That man was confronted, left the home, and drove away.
Exactly what did this video "catch" the crook doing wrong?


Do I think this guy is a bootlegger? You bet I do. But the video proves absolutely nothing.


I won't pass judgment on a three minute news clip. From ch. 26 at that.

Sorry.

Indiana does not require any license for HVAC work. Where I live you have to register with the county, but that is it. So we end up with every Tom, Dick, and Harry working on furnaces. The funny thing is home inspectors have to be licensed through the state but they don't even have to inspect a furnace other than turn it on and say if it blows hot air or not.

I SAY TRYING TO KILL BECAUSE OF HIS ILLEGAL FURNACE REPAIRS :furious:
Remember well, years ago a news clip showing a very good tech checking out a furnace. The news expert was an idiot the tech that got roasted was correct. The furnace was in poor condition, the motor was bad. :censored:News is slanted.

We had one channel here that tried to put a sting on the most honest contractor I know and who is mando respected by other reputable contractors.

The station issued a correction on the allegations and a left handed apology to the affected contractor.

This station is more sensational in it's reporting than fact based and is dead last in the rating.

If our three other station run a piece on a hvac crook it's most likely on the money.
