SF8 update: bail posted

richard o’neal—august 29

richard brown— august 30

ray boudreaux— september 11

harold taylor—september 12

hank jones—september 18

 

out of the six eligible for bail, five are already on the outs and francisco torres is supposed to be released soon

 

what about the other three?  

herman bell and jalil muntagim have been locked up for almost forty years in ny prisons

but they go before the parole board again next year

main thing keeping them incarcerated? just one guess..

[if yuh don’t know much bout the ny3 check this out]

ronald stanley bridgeford is still on the lam

 

 

despite what they would like you to believe THERE IS NO NEW EVIDENCE

murder weapon: “lost”

dna: no matches

fingerprints: no matches

 

all the prosecution has is the testimony of rubin scott and two courts have found his witness untrustworthy

perjury anyone?

 

 

 

 

“what a shocker”

contrary to popular belief

if you torture people until they do whatever you want

[yuh know, like signing a confession]

and bring charges against them

[based on that confession? yeah]

then get your case thrown out

[because of that whole little torture-coerced fake-o testimonies thing..whoops]

if you try again in a couple decades

[um, try 30]

you might actually succeed in getting another chance to try your case

[no new proof? just those ole torture-confessions? that’s okay, it’ll work]

and of course if you can just get the defendents on a ridiculously high bail

[3 million for starters but then see if yuh can get it raised to 5]

you can build a prison anywhere

 

 

the justice system is a joke

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:

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

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:

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
