An update on the Free Buzz campaign:
Buzz Aldrin was
cleared of all charges
for decking a Lunar Hoax Loonie.
We began tracking this story
last month, when independent journalist
second man on the moon Buzz Aldrin
to a hotel to accuse him of
faking the moon landing.
A self-styled defender of the truth,
Sibrel tricked the aging but virile
with a fake story about an interview
for a non-existent group of Japanese schoolchildren.
Buzz at first just buzzed Sibrel off,
but when Sibrel pressed the attack,
demanding that the former astronaut
swear on a Bible that he had
landed on the moon, Buzz's famous
temper took hold and the 72 year
old ex-astronaut and war hero clocked
his 6-foot-2 assailant on the jaw.
For a while it was looking dicy
for Buzz as police reviewed the
tape for possible assault charges.
But, the Free Buzz campaign
is now proud to report that
after police reviewed the tape -
made by Sibrel's paid cameraman,
and clearly showing that he
was not seriously injured - they
declined to file charges.
The police findings that led to the
decision included the following:
Sibrel lured Aldrin to the hotel
under false pretenses, chased him
down the street calling him a liar
and a coward, sustained no visible
injury from the punch, sought no
medical attention - and, of course,
was harassing a national science
hero with a perfect record.
Hooray for our side!
