Mr Hendricks looks familiar, but then again I have family and self involved in martial arts for nearly thirty years so I am sure we were bound to come across each other at some point. It is good to note that this man and his neighbors all did the right thing. It is good that the criminal turned himself in too. Now if only he wouldn't get into trouble by having his sword, or a handy gun while performing his duties for his safety and that of his flock.
