I don't think it was planned in quite the same way that Bob's arrest incident was planned. There they set out to make Bob lose his temper. Here we just had an idiot ("buddy") who is completely incapable of not lying. He saw an opening and he took it. I mean, look at him as I pull out my wallet. The delayed reaction of panic ("Hey, hey hey hey!") as he backs up and puts out his hand in "fear" came after he thinks this will look like I'm threatening him.
I really should do an outtakes piece for this videos there were plenty of other good moments that didn't make it into the cut. As it was, I felt I spent too much time with Buddy. The video was about me trying to find out from Dan why he came to my house that day and why did he lie to my neighbors but Buddy is just too priceless to ingore.
At one point, I go to the camera man to get a shot of him shooting me. He backs up and the security guy kind of moves between us. The cameraman says in a singsong merry way "Thank you Mr. Security Guard for protecting me." They wanted to portray me as being very dangerous when in fact thier hours of tape show me to be jovial and bemused.
The second point about Buddy being willing to perjure himself to the police...there isn't a doubt in my mind that he would. He already made up whoppers about me at CC to the police. He wouldn't hesitate a second. I don't think the org needs to direct him to do this. He is just that plain corrupt and stupid. I have a certain amount of respect for Dan but Buddy is just a moron.

I would love to see the Scientologists tape of the affair. If indeed they turn the camera away as the group swarms me, then it was a setup and they were doing exactly what they did to Bob.
