  1. William Ferrara was at the location at the time of the raid he said most everything the police stated were lies to cover what had been going on. He said that police in plan close had been coming in for sexual gratification for quite some time but, it had gotten to the point that the girls no longer wanted to be bullied into this. He also said that many truck drivers had been parking their trucks around the are for the same reason. He said the cops lost the fight in the confrontation. Knowing Bill I would have to believe anyone that messed with him had more tha there hands full and surly got their ass kicked as for Bill he is 83 now and would think he could still kick there ass up down and sideways.
