Barry may have cleverly not told the truth about no longer being a police officer
Association with Alex Jones is compelling (frankly, it's a giveaway)
Online store assures customer info from DVD sales will not be given to law enforcement, yet it says nothing about grow-lamps and other products.
Barry was "arrested" in 2010 for filing a false report - a stunt that arose while making a film in which Barry tried to expose crooked cops (who are probably actors too). Note that the incident wasn't reported in major news outlets, so it may be disinformation spread by Cooper and his associates.
