Comment: At the time of this staged incident, neo-con media outlets like Sean Hannity and Fox News, as well as 9/11 debunking groups, claimed that a 9/11 truther had beaten up a disabled girl as a means of trying to discredit the 9/11 truth movement. Now that Talis has been aquitted and proven completely innocent of all charges, as we maintained all along, will those same groups now come forward and apologize for promulgating this hoax?
A New York jury has acquitted a 24-year-old man accused of heckling Laura and Jenna Bush and assailing a wheelchair-bound teenager and her family.
The New York Post reported Wednesday a Manhattan Criminal Court jury acquitted Gary Talis Tuesday on assault charges stemming from an April 2008 incident in which Talis allegedly attacked a family following a New York appearance by the wife and daughter of then-U.S. President George W. Bush. The Bushes were in New York to talk about their children’s book, “Read All About It.”

Authorities had accused Talis of shouting obscenities at the Bushes before attacking John Lovetro’s family at the event.
Lovetro testified against Talis during his trial, as did Lovetro’s daughter and wife Wendy. The Post said several New York police officers and one Secret Service agent also offered testimony against Talis.
