The report I saw was from Beverley Hills police chief. I would say he's credible.
"The only real journalists I've seen have said only that he and the car are gone. Not who said what, or who did what. Most of it is all repeated from what "guy with a cell phone" shows on phone camera, and later adds verbally."
My comment was to the original "freelance video Journalist" video, and the comments ensuing about that whole thing, and the flicking of the cigarette and saying "f*** America" and having his life threatened was what the cell phone guy said is what happened, not what he showed us, not what the news cycle regurgitated for over 24hrs, and and not the drivers themselves, and that the video I saw never showed who exactly was driving the cars (though I never doubted that no one other than the owner would be driving his/her Million+ dollar Ferrari). That's all.
If you rewatch the original clip everyone was commenting on, it only shows cell phone guy being forced off of their property, and only later while being interviewed by a real journalist, he makes statements about all the inflammatory stuff (them saying they could have him killed, and f*** America etc)
The news cycle ran a bit more than 24 hrs with the only information being what was gleaned from cell phone guy. That's really all my comment was about. How I think he has zero credibility, and that the things he says happened off camera are suspect as all he said was "I have it on tape".
Then real journalists began reporting on official LAPD report of a collision, then them questioning him to which he stated "I have diplomatic immunity". But that information came later....
Guess it matters to me where I get my news. He was labeled "ANG News Photographer"...I looked...can anyone find a news organization called "ANG News"? I'm pretty sure he isn't affiliated with Air National Guard or they would have said that.
The closest I have come is an ANG News in Etah, Uttar Pradesh, India.... http://www.angnews.in/
