7/7 The Conspiracy Files

Nearly four years after the July 7, 2005, London bombings, England's worst terrorist atrocity, The Conspiracy Files investigates the conspiracy theories flourishing on the internet.

There have been three official reports into the bombings on 7th July 2005, which claimed the lives of 56 people and injured 784 others. The programme sees how conspiracy theories suggest four British Muslims were framed by the government, play on the fears of the Muslim community and spread a highly divisive and damaging message.

The Conspiracy Files: 7/7 examines the evidence in an attempt to separate fact from fiction.

Autistic Truther Invades July 4th Parade

"I began to boo when I saw that it said, '911 was an inside job" because I found it so offensive," said Columbus resident Charlene Larson.

On the day we celebrate the founding of our nation, one man finds himself behind bars.

Every year the Columbus Fourth of July parade attracts about 10,000 people, and one of those people this year is now the talk of the town.

The first 90 minutes of the parade was just like any other year, until a protester who designed his own float somehow entered the procession.

He screamed the following through speakers on the roof. "It's time for you to literally break out of that cage. It's time for you to burst out like the incredible hulk. It's time for you to get wild! There's nothing that can stop you now! Yeah!"
The car managed to make it through the entire parade following the main road through the center of town. At the end of the route the crowd began to boo and he stopped the car. That is when it got ugly.

The man, who police say is 31-year-old Mark Spinler of Beaver Dam, further taunted the onlookers until a few men ran out from the crowd and began tearing the sings off his car. One said "911 = Inside Job". Another read, "America: You Are All Slaves". He held a camera the entire time recording it all.

Added Larson, "I believe you have freedom of speech. But I do believe that you don't have the freedom to come to a peaceful gathering and start something ugly. which is what I feel he was trying to do."
Police say Spinler hit two people with his car and nearly hit others who had to dive out of the way as he tried to escape. He was arrested a short time later and charged with 2nd Degree Reckless Endangerment and Disorder Conduct.
