This is a man who has lived wild in Utah for at least the past 7 years
Known by many as Mountain Man he's become a Robin Hood figure, often stealing from cabins and leaving thank you notes for the items he took!
He lived in the Hills shooting small game with rifles he stole and hiding away in snow bound cabins in the mountains.
A newspaper report says this about him
Knapp was born in Saginaw, Michigan, and got into trouble with the law early. As a teenager, he was convicted of breaking and entering, passing bad checks and unlawful flight from authorities, according to court records. Knapp drifted across the country and ended up in prison in California for burglary. He fell off the radar in 2004 when he "went on the run" while on parole.
He shot at a helicoper containing police who were trying to bring him in and this probably resulted in such a stiff sentence of 10 years..
So what do you think, Hero or Villain, genuine modern day Mountain Man or low life criminal? Can't help thinking that regardless there will probably be a movie and book deal somewhere down the line..
But for a man used to the great outdoors and surviving wild for the past 7 years, 10 years in confinement is going to be a very hard pill to swallow.
