While I find interesting, your piece which talks about British and French history and your own philosophical take on the subject of anarchy, I don't see the relevance to the accusation that I intentionally ran down so called "peaceful" demonstrators.
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 the chain of events which took place from the time that the car in front of me entered the parking lot to the time my car broke through the mob which was a time frame of approximately 10 seconds. 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 windsheild wiper), the fear that engulfed me tiggered 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.
As with the press, you and the KPFK crowd assume that because 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. Absent of truth, you then want a resolution suggesting that I should pay a reasonable restitution to Theresa and the other people I may have injured or risked injuring by my action -- nevermind the risk to myself had I not taken the action I did.
But any resolution would have to be made with the ground rules that both sides be truthful -- and it is the side that you side with that has shown an affinity to lie and be deceitful.
I have linked two video clips. Clip 1 shows, not a group of peaceful demonstrators, but a hostile unruly mob that wants to shove their own beliefs down the throats of those who dissagree with them, by intimidation with violence.
Clip 2 proves that the two persons who claimed to be injured by my car faked the whole thing.

Although no charges were rightfully not filed against me by the Garden Grove Police, KPFK's loud mouth Jim Lafferty's airing of the distortion of the truth on his talk show which I have recorded, 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.
Now that you know the truth Mr. Osborn, perhaps you will show your sincerity as a self appointed mediator by requesting that Megaphone Man and Theresa pay a reasonable restitution to me and my family for their deceitful actions. As you say, that's fair; that's restorative justice.
I think also that Megaphone man and Theresa should issue a public as well as a personal apology and a promise to try to do better in the future, both for the sake of their own honor as members of our community, and to set an example.
With regards to a dialog, I agree to give my side of the story on KPFK on the condition that Jim Lafferty give his side of the story on the Terry Anderson Show on KRLA.
The two fakers put on a good show for the news media
