    On August 7, 1970, Jonathan Jackson, a heavily armed 17-year-old African-American high-school student, gained control over a courtroom in Marin County, California. Once in the courtroom, Jackson armed the black defendants and took Judge Harold Haley, the prosecutor, and three female jurors as hostages.[17][18] As Jackson transported the hostages and two black convicts away from the courtroom, the police began shooting at the vehicle. The judge and the three black men were killed in the melee; one of the jurors and the prosecutor were injured. Davis had purchased the firearms used in the attack, including the shotgun used to kill Haley, which had been bought two days prior and the barrel sawed off.[18] Davis was also corresponding with one of the inmates involved.[19]

    That's good enough for me.

    I don't support all of Angela Davis's ideas, But I do support her right to express them.

    Here's a question for you supporters of Angela Davis 40+ years after the fact:

    What would you say of a person now who supports a violent replacement of government to include race riots? Never mind, you can see it here - you call them racists and teabaggers and whatever pejorative you can pull out of your insult bag. You wouldn't be caught dead calling them brilliant, or fawning over them.

    Where would one find this information you profess to be true?

    Although you made sure to post allegations only, what you deliberately left out was

    Davis was tried and the all-white jury returned a verdict of not guilty. The fact that she owned the guns used in the crime was judged not sufficient to establish her responsibility for the plot.
    You have nothing. She was innocent and was proven innocent of those charges in a court of law.

    Naw...ole J. was a "bun buster."



    J. Edgar Hoover led a deeply repressed sexual life, living with his mother until he was 40, awkwardly rejecting the attention of women and pouring his emotional, and at times, physical attention on his handsome deputy at the FBI, according to the new movie, "J. Edgar," directed by Clint Eastwood.

    In public, Hoover waged a vendetta against homosexuals and kept "confidential and secret" files on the sex lives of congressmen and presidents. But privately, according to some biographers, he had numerous trysts with men, including a lifelong affair with Tolson.
