    What is it you see? The original post had run its course, then out of the blue an accusation of making masks, now a new twist and all on the Internet by a group or six who seem to be more concerned with destroying Bruce than anything else. I have no dog in this fight and don’t really care so I’m out.

    The original intent of this thread was to educate the public on the seasoft case.
    Theres new information, therefore the thread has been brought to life. If you look back this account did not even post the new information.

    Why are you hell bent on discrediting the facts, this account posts and at every turn appearing to side with the man?

    4, 5, 6 pages ago half of SB was rooting for Bruce to stick it to the "man" for how "unfairly" he was being treated. He was ranting about taking his case to Federal Court which made no sense but oh well. Since then we've learned that he didn't meet statutory deadlines to appeal the dangerous waste violations and has moved after his landlord terminated his lease for contaminating someone else's property. So now he isn't even in the scuba business anymore and instead trying to make masks but with $250K+ of civil liens hanging over his head. On top of that, the residential burglary charge is punishable by up to 10 years and $20,000 fine.

    I would say he's kinda destroyed himself here. 3 or 4 posts by @Washington Justice had nothing to do with it. Not unlike Peter Sortis and Barry Miller of yesteryear.

    Can you still use lead shotgun ammo in WA state?

    I wondered that too - my dad hunts dove and they shot boxes of shells

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't it only a charge of burglary and not a conviction?

    Shrugs and the 4 other pending cases aren't final yet either. The wheels of justice can turn slowly sometimes.

    I'm just guessing of course but he probably went back to retrieve some of his own property and ran into changed locks or some such.

    People can be so sadly foolish sometimes.

    I'm not sure why a business that owns a bunch of sewing machines and employees who know how to operate them is being "accused" of making masks. Seems to me like they wanted to do the right thing and make some masks at a time when they were unavailable even to medical professionals. Whether he was able to do it or not seems questionable, since the Facebook post indicated he was having trouble sourcing raw materials.

    The burglary charge is concerning if it's the right guy. I spent almost an hour searching just now between google and a few washington government sites and couldn't find any references to the case number in that image nor did this guy turn up in a criminal records search by name. There were several bruce justinens with arrests in the search but nothing in 2020. Unless he's a career criminal with 10 or so felony arrests in the past couple decades I have to assume what I found was the wrong guy. The Washington state search doesn't result in links to any actual documents or even include birthdates in the results so it's pretty useless. I guess the state hasn't gotten on board with that whole internet thing from the 1970's yet.
