I continue to be surprised how people will play fast-and-loose with the facts, especially when those facts are on videotape.
Larry Nemecek ("Free speech no excuse for lack of civility," July 30) is either grossly misinformed or he is part of the apologists for Assemblyman Mike Gatto, who would like to smear me instead of dealing with reality. Nemecek was "unnerved" recently when I showed up on the sidewalk at a public park club picnic to ask Gatto to clarify his unclear position on the legalization of marijuana.
What probably "unnerved" Nemecek were members of the Burbank Democratic Club aggressively and physically coming after me. And, as always, my camera was rolling, and those out-of-control individuals made themselves look foolish. There was no "clever editing" involved. One crazed man even threw water on me and my camera.
