They are unanimous agreement that they are all the same, based on the language patterns, with the exception of fake mark turner. When he goes on a racist rant, he is similar, but at other times, he is not. They are divided on him, but there is no Mark Turner, in El Paso County paying property taxes. One lives in Illinois, but has an unimproved lot where fake mark turner claims he is, and the other is a registered child-sex offender, living in the far west side of El Paso County.
