"The same people who tried to kill me in 1973 are the same people who are here today, trying to destroy me. I mean it literally. I mean there were people from the forces of the San Francisco Police Department who participated in harassment, torture and my interrogation in 1973 ... none of these people have ever been brought to trial. None of these people have ever been charged with anything. None of these people have ever been questioned about that."

As of 1/23/2007 the police have rounded up Ray, Richard, Henry, & Harold. Sadly this legacy of torture is not over by a long shot. keep posted
