witch hunt

former black panther/BLA members arrested 30 years after crimes they’re accused of committing took place

 

 

CHARGED with MURDER and CONSPIRACY in 2007:

richard brown

richard o’neal

ray boudeaux

hank jones

francisco torres

harold taylor

herman bell

jalil muntaquim

ronald stanley bridgeford

 

WHO they are ACCUSED of killing in 1971:

san francisco police sergeant john v. young

part of what authorities claim was a five-year “campaign” from 1968-1973 to kill law enforcement officers on both coasts—attacks in california and new york including the bombing of an s.f. cop’s funeral, the deaths of two nypd officers, plus three armed bank robberies helping to fund these operations

 

ARRESTED in 1973:

harold taylor

john bowman

ruben scott

tortured by s.f. detectives mccoy, erdelatz, and new orleans police until signing falsified “confessions” written entirely by police

 

HOW they were TORTURED:

electric shock

cattle prods

beatings

sensory deprivation

plastic bags and hot wet blankets used to asphyxiate

 

CHARGED with MURDER in 1975:

harold taylor

john bowman

ruben scott

based on the “evidence” extracted by torturing defendents

 

WHAT a federal court ruled in 1975:

torture had been illegally used—a san francisco judge tossed out the case

 

OFFICERS CHARGED with ILLEGAL TORTURE:

none

 

OFFICERS INVESTIGATED for ILLEGAL TORTURE

none

not a single government official even questioned about possibly just maybe using illegal torture

 

JAILED in 2005:

richard brown

ray beaudroux

hank jones

harold taylor

refused to answer questions before a grand jury investigating young’s death

 

WHY this is happening NOW:

investigation reopened in 1999 after “advances in forensic science led to the discovery of new evidence in one of the unsolved cases”—official sfpd statement

morris tabak, deputy chief of investigations: “it could be fibers. it could be dna. it could be other biological evidence”

 

we agree mister tabak

it could be a lot of other things

like say, for example, BULLSHIT
