*Consumer Comment: Where's the Justice
I wonder about the irony in this title of the documentary, my son, Eric and I were asked by Mario Cortolezzis to be a part of the fall of 07. We understood Where's the Justice to be a story about autism and life around this sometimes elusive disability. I was very excited to be involved with something so close to my heart and soul: it has been a part of my life for almost 15 years now.
My vision for sharing our personal story concerning autism, and how it has weaved its web very intricately into our world was very important to me. I felt if I could give other families some personal insight into this journey, it might give them hope and understanding. Eric didn't share my enthusiasm at first, but I convinced him that he was going to be a part of helping others understand him and more importantly autism. What we thought this was going to be and how it was conveyed were polar opposites.
So with that it brings me to my thought Where's the justice? My son was promised 3% of the sales for each video that was sold. We have not seen a dime from any of those videos Mario has sold at Machenthuns, or police stations nationwide. Where is the money? This was money we had discussed to be put away for Eric's college fund.
Eric is very upset and has felt ripped off by Mario, he thought he was his friend, which Mario often referred himself to Eric.. If Mario has such a heart of compassion for Autism then why did he not give it a second thought on taking advantage of my beautiful son, who opened his heart to him?
Some one who takes advantage of vulnerable children without any regard of the outcome frightens me. It leaves me wondering he will stop at nothing to get what he wants, which is for his own personal gain.
I had also assissted Mario under the guise that I was going to work for him and Mike through Marko productions as an assistance. I excitedly started helping out shooting a commercial at Lake Winds and teen talk last spring. Mike and Mario had even set up a Bio on their Marko production web page for me as their assistant.
That never came to fruition, after I inquired to how I was going to get paid. Mario tried to blame Mike for things not working out. I got frustrated and called him a snake charmer, intuitively realizing he was talking out of both sides of his mouth.
Our story, although very heart felt had some truths about our lives and living with autism. Upon reviewing the completed documentary, I began to ask, why hadn't' our voices been heard the way we had originally shared-from the heart? But after all of this played out I realized Mario has not a clue what from the heart really means.
