I have been accused of intentionally running down so called "peaceful" demonstrators on May 26, 2005, when I tried to attend a Minutemen meeting at the Women's Center in Garden Grove, California. see L.A. Times archive

The Anti-Semitic website, www.Aztlan.net, whose publisher is Hector Carreon, was quick to shout "racism." Aztlan.net's writer, Ernesto Cienfuego in this piece considers that if I want to hear what Minuteman founder Jim Gilchrist has to say by attending a peaceful meeting (I myself am not a Minuteman member) that I must be a racist. And if I am a racist, then I must have arbitrarily and premeditatedly decided to run down some people. The truth is that the so called "peaceful" demonstrators use intimidation and violence to oppose peaceful assembly.

As it appeared to me and as expressed to me by others, there could not have been any purpose by the protestors other than to try to intimidate through violence, anyone wanting to attend the meeting from doing so. In fact, at least two would-be attendees that I know of, seeing the mob, decided not to attend and drove off.
Because of the hostile atmosphere created by the protesters, none of the meeting's attendees ventured out to the street side which was unprotected by police to video tape what actually happened. But there was some video that I have acquired which recorded what happened from the inside of the meeting's parking lot. The photos and video clips are strong evidence supporting my version of what happened.

With my car surrounded by an angry mob banging on my car windows and kicking the doors (resulting in a sprung door and a bent windshield wiper), the fear that engulfed me triggered the thought of the Rodney King riot where Reginald Denny, the truck driver who made the mistake of not driving away, was nearly beaten to death.

The video clip shows that the two persons who claimed to be injured by my van faked the whole thing.

Although rightfully no charges were filed against me by the Garden Grove Police, communist radio KPFK's loud mouth organizer Jim Lafferty aired the distortion of the truth on his talk show which included statements that I intentionally ran six people down including himself when I had nothing to fear from the "peaceful" demonstrators, has placed my family and me in danger with death threats and at least one site that posted a "wanted" poster giving the license plate number of my car which happens to be registered to my Mexican immigrant wife. It was no wonder that Telemundo showed up the next morning asking for an interview from my wife. She of course, turned them away.

Lafferty and his fellow fakers should be thankful that no charges were filed against me, as that would have brought the truth about their chicanery out in the open.
