So are all the Ventura haters going to apologize now?
Are all the people who thought Chris Kyle was a 'hero' instead of a serial prevaricator going to rethink their hero worship habits?
(Best part of the trial was when all of Kyle's 'witnesses' who were all utterly sodden at the time, tried independently to place where the
altercation took place; each one said a different part of the bar, the patio or the sidewalk outside. The 'best' witness had had more than 15
drinks by his own admission.) So much for the somber wake scenario.
And the vehemence of the Ventura haters to this and hundreds of other threads on other forums shows just how much JV was harmed by this lie. Chris
Kyle was in the habit of exaggerating and making things up all the time; it was just this time, there was a camera on him, it went viral, and then he
doubled down rather than manning up and retracting what he knew was untrue. This is the kind of person our government gives medals (and rifles) to.
As far as who pays the award, it's not the 'poor widow and children' (already multimillionaires from both the book and movie deals) but the
insurance policy for the publisher who should have vetted their facts a bit better. All it would have taken was a question to the Corona Police
Department about the night in question and whether a report was filed. Ten minutes of research would have proven Kyle's allegations were untrue and
that JV was telling the truth from the very beginning.
