  • He (Caples) tyrannized The People of America and had them nearly arrested for not wearing a mask in the Haywood County hospital. Threatened to and I quote "put them in a room and lock them up without a window and put them on drugs because I was wacko" He has been served a writ of execution for crimes against humanity. See nsea.us and The PBI for copies of the papers that have been served.
