John Bowman became the 5th Black activist jailed today for refusing to 
cooperate with a State Grand Jury investigating a 1971 case. Despite 
evidence introduced about Post Traumatic Stress caused by John Bowman's 
torture in New Orleans in 1973 by the same cops involved in this current 
investigation, Superior Court Judge Dondero refused to consider the impact 
of this history on this case.
