(the dept. may change, ask a baliff) VISIBLE SUPPORT IS NEEDED AT THIS POINT....pack the courtroom for Francisco Torres who is the last of the SF8 in this 2007 case. The hearing is expected to last all day, please come out when and for however long you can!

The defense will call retired SF police officer, Henry Fikkers, to testify about wiretaps he has claimed to know about. The police, FBI, and prosecution have claime all along that there were no wiretaps relevant to the case, an assertion which seems absurd on its face given the well documented use of taps on the left and on the Black Panther Party in particular during the time period of the case (1968-1973). However, many of those wiretaps were illegal and courts have thrown out charges in other cases based on their use.
