    Amazing documentary such a good story and what a great guy. I thought he was just going to be cocky at first but all that changed and you see a really intelligent, strong, funny, loving guy doing his bit for the people and giving something back. Most criminals are shallow and only care about them selves. Over and above all he is an inspiration well and truly.
