Legacy of Torture #08-07

In 1971, John Young, a San Francisco police 
officer was killed. Members of the Black Panther 
party were arrested, charged and then tortured by 
San Francisco and New Orleans police. Since the 
police used torture to extract their confessions, 
eventually, the charges were dismissed. Now more 
than 35 years later, the case has been reopened. 
On January 23rd, 2007, some of those same men were arrested again.

In this special documentary from the Freedom 
Archives, we hear from some of the accused men 
themselves. They describe the torture and how 
they were targeted for their political activities.

Featuring: Ray Boudreaux, John Bowman, Richard 
Brown, Hank Jones, former Black Panther and 
Harold Taylor, former Black Panthers; Soffiyah Elijah, attorney.
