Bill Gilbert is a rare breed of cop. One that doesn't just stop his duty to protect society after he's retired, but keeps a keen ear and eye open to the injustices and threats that constantly surround us. He's like one of those long lost men from the old Western days who has more courage and integrity than any of the thugs we see today. GOd bless Mr. Gilbert. He's a neighbor I'd want to have my back for sure> Good job Mr. Gilbert, you ROCK.
