Castro Theater Manager Uses Clipboard to Assault Journalist Filming Nudists
Friday September 21, 2012 was international Parking Day. Long-time community activist and former San Francisco Mayoral Candidate George Davis set-up a Parking Day installation in a space on Castro Street in front of the iconic Castro Theater.
As the nudists were being interviewed by Reel Gay TV journalist Mike Skiff, a man who was identified as the manager of the Castro Theater approached the group and told them they could not film at this location without a permit. The manager then begins hitting the camera with a clipboard and pushes the journalist out into the street. The manager then walks back toward the theater doors only to return to continue assaulting the camera operator with the clipboard. Third Rail Media has posted a clip on YouTube showing the incident. The altercation starts at about 2:25 into the video. Check it out for yourself here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypVjqgJrpJo
