Mutant Street Party (Episode 12)

Episode 12
Originally uploaded by blackcatmedia.
On June 10th, the prisoners doing jail solidarity were finally released. After speaking to the National Lawyers Guild, the prisoners consented to give their names in exchange for having the charges dropped.

This episode focuses on their release and includes a series of interviews detailing their experiences while in custody. While not quite as severe as the scandal in Abu Gharib, the way these young people were treated while in custody is completely reprehensible.

In the words of LBJ "Our safest guide to what we do abroad is a good look at what we are doing at home."

wow... That is amazing they came out so strong. I wish the Doe family well in their current lawsuit with the SF police department. I'm hoping that those injured and hospitalised are recieving reparations at least. Every one of those officers should be removed from power...but oh yeah, thats why they did that.. cause they're in an interchangeable position that holds power. ;)
