Attica: A Political Broadcast (video)

On Sept. 13, 1971, New York Gov. Nelson Rockefeller ordered armed state troopers to raid the prison in Attica, New York, ending a prison uprising to protest inhumane conditions at the facility. Troopers then indiscriminately shot over 2,000 rounds of ammunition, killing 29 prisoners and 10 guards. Recently released audio recordings provide a glimpse into the bizarre savage rituals of US federal and local rulers coming together.

I think the combination of age and a greater coming together is responsible for the speed of the passing time.

--Sam Melville, from a letter written shortly before he was assassinated by a trooper in Attica
